Kingdom of Marlon
Gerda was the head maid of the Freezis Family. Serving Keel and Mikina Freezis for years, the woman become one of the oldest and most trusted employees among the household staff. After her fellow maid Michaela was targetted by the Kingdom of Lucifenia, Gerda fled the Freezis Mansion with the other servants in the wake of the Green Hunting, later reuniting with her masters at their new estate in Marlon.
Born in the Kingdom of Elphegort during the fifth century EC, Gerda was eventually hired to serve the Freezis Family. Working in their mansion in Aceid as the head maid, Gerda directed the other servants alongside Keel's butler and chief aide, Bruno; at some point, she became familiar with the Freezises motto that all servants were treated like family. As Keel and Mikina's eldest daughter Yukina grew increasingly rambunctious over the years, Gerda strictly punished her with every incident.
Reign of EvilEdit
- "Michaela, Clarith. Do you have a moment? Earl Felix arrived earlier. Would you serve him, please?"
After the feudal lord suggested Michaela and Clarith serve him, the surprised maid complied. Finding them cleaning laundry outside with other maids, Gerda singled them out and asked if they could take the time to perform the task. When Michaela questioned her choice, the head maid put a hand to her chin while noting Bruno or someone more experienced would usually handle it if not for Earl Felix's personal recommendation, inquiring whether they were acquainted with the earl.Afterward, Gerda took them inside and instructed them on how to properly serve tea to the earl, telling Clarith to not make a sound. Once they reached just outside of the Earl's room, she informed them that Keel would be arriving shortly, warning the two not to get careless. She then waited outside the door while the two went in to serve the tea until Keel arrived with Bruno.
A few months later, Gerda noticed they had run out of laundry soap and had Michaela go out to buy more. After the maid failed to return with the soap after several hours, the head maid expressed her exasperation with the Elphe maid's sluggish pace to Clarith. The next day, Gerda was summoned to a meeting with Keel along with Bruno, Michaela, and Clarith. Meeting the butler and Netsuma maid outside Keel's room, the three waited until Michaela arrived. When the Elphe questioned what Keel called all of them for, Gerda and Clarith both admitted they didn't know.
The four then entered the room and Keel asked Bruno to explain what just transpired, listening to the butler relate that King Kyle Marlon had been put under house arrest at his castle by his mother due to rejecting his engagement to Riliane in favor of his Elphe sweetheart. After the butler revealed they suspected Michaela was Kyle's supposed lover, Gerda watched while the Freezises expressed their frustration with Kyle's decision and insisted they weren't blaming the apologetic Michaela.
As Keel explained his future plans for dealing with the precarious situation, the merchant noted he also considered what would likely happen with Princess Riliane. Gerda questioned if The Daughter of Evil would come to kill Michaela and her master replied that it would be even worse than that. After the Freezises informed Michaela where to take refuge in an emergency and assigned Clarith to protect her, Keel reminded everyone of the Freezis motto, beseeching everyone to do their best during Michaela's time of need. Gerda agreed in unison with everyone else.
When the Lucifenian army lay siege to Aceid a week later, the entire staff joined the Freezis family in the living room in preparation to flee. Once Michaela and Clarith said their goodbyes and safely escaped out the back door, Keel directed the other servants to other escape routes and they promptly fled the mansion.
Return to ServiceEdit
- "What kind of relationship do those two have?"
"The relationship you saw."
- ―Kyle and Keel regarding Arkatoir and Gerda[src]
Gerda later returned to the Freezis' employ after they moved to the capital city of Bariti in Marlon. At some point, she met Marlon's parliamentary secretary Arkatoir Marlon and became infatuated with the young former prince. After Yukina ran away from home in EC 504, Gerda and the other servants continued to keep her room clean until her return a year later. A day later, Keel requested Gerda bring in Kyle's last surviving painting to Marlon Castle and complied, bringing it in a package to the main hall in Right Palace with Keel and his son Shaw.
After dropping it off, Keel patted Gerda on the shoulder while suggesting she help Arkatoir give Shaw a tour of the royal palace while he and Kyle talked in private; when he added she hadn't visited the place in a while and had the chance to fawn over Arkatoir to her heart's content, the shocked head maid blushed. The equally red Arkatoir hurried them on and hastily left the audience chamber with the two, giving them a tour. Once they returned to Keel and Kyle, Gerda and Shaw returned home with the merchant.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Gerda was a rather even-tempered woman, loyal to the Freezises throughout her employ. Having been welcomed by them with warm hearts within in a country critical towards non-Elphes, the maid deeply trusted the merchant couple and took their motto that employees were the same as family to heart. Because of this, Gerda took her job as the head maid very seriously, remaining polite but strict with all of the servants and even the Freezis children. However, she also demonstrated a viscous temper on occasion, earning Yukina's comparison to a demon.
Aside from the Freezises, Gerda possessed a respectful professional relationship with fellow servants and showed a legitimate concern for their well-being. After moving to Marlon, Gerda became infatuated with the young parliamentary secretary Arkatoir Marlon; in spite of the sizable age gap between them, the head maid was easily embarrassed by her relationship with the former prince and enjoyed secretly fawning over him.
Skills and AbilitiesEdit
Gerda boasted an impressive physique among the Freezis servants despite her age and was also the tallest, standing almost a head taller than even most of the men.

Arkatoir Marlon: Gerda's romantic interest. After meeting with Arkatoir in Marlon, Gerda became smitten with the younger man and the two struck up a romance over time.
