- Are you looking for Mikulia Calgaround?
- "Here there are a lot of pretty things. That's why Mikulia is really happy right now."
- ―Mikulia Greeonio[src]
Mikulia Greeonio was a peasant from Abito, Asmodean in the Beelzenian Empire and one of Duke Sateriasis Venomania's many victims. Used as a vessel by the "Demon of Sloth", Mikulia grew up miserable with her circumstances. Under the presumption that he was her prince, Mikulia joined the Duke of her own volition as the second member of his harem.
- "But you know, back home, I only had rice to plow and tend to."
- ―Mikulia regarding her life growing up[src]
After the death of her grandmother, the unborn Mikulia was used as a vessel by the Demon of Sloth, influencing her since before birth. She was born to her biological parents around EC 118 and was later abandoned by the roadside. Afterwards, she was found and adopted by a family of rice farmers in Abito village belonging to the Held sect.
Although initially raised with love and a sense of importance from her parents, as Mikulia grew up she began demonstrating a lower intelligence than that of the other children and an inability to do work properly. As a result, she was treated as a nuisance by the village and ridiculed by her frustrated parents, who remained too poor to even afford the girl a doll to play with.
At some point learning of her adoption, the unhappy Mikulia fantasized that she was a princess of another land who had been abandoned at the edge of the village. She also concocted that her fiancé, a prince with chestnut hair, would one day come and whisk her away to live with him and she could escape from the village and her "wicked stepmother."
Her Demon PrinceEdit
- "I'm not afraid! Though I was a little surprised at the time, you looked handsome when I looked closely. "This person must be a prince," I thought."
"And you are not afraid if I am a prince?"
"Yup! 'Cuz my prince is supposed to make me happy!"
- ―Mikulia and Duke Sateriasis Venomania[src]
Towards the end of January, EC 136, the 18-year-old Mikulia was carrying a glass bottle through the forest when she saw a demonic man seducing a woman. Terrified, she dropped the bottle and screamed incomprehensibly before collapsing on the ground. Unable to stand, the frightened Mikulia attempted to crawl away when another woman with a red cat arrived. Once the horned and winged man approached her, asking her to return to his mansion with him, Mikulia refused and shoved him; she fled back a ways and then watched as the man had a conversation with a woman that had a red cat on her shoulder.
Looking closer, she determined that the man was handsome and must be a demon prince. Becoming infatuated with him, she then fled back to Abito and over the following month spoke to no one about her encounter. Sometime later, she lightly walked to the edge of the village preparing to pray, singing that she was a little princess. Reaching the edge of the forest, she faced the trees and held her hands together in front of her face before praying to Held.
Noticing another presence nearby, Mikulia turned and then saw a red cat before her. Recognizing it as having been with the demonic man, she remarked it was the demon's minion. Hearing the cat mutter she was reluctant to be branded a minion, the girl tilted her head and wondered if she wasn't the demon's minion after all. When the cat began to explain that it was the opposite, Mikulia heard her stop and start to ask why she could hear her before her prince came, cutting her off.
Before the man could speak to her, Mikulia excitedly cried out that it was the demon prince. When the man remarked that she was the one who had seen his demon form, the girl affirmed and noted that today he was a prince and dressed as a normal human. Asked why she was calling him a prince, she told the confused man that he was really cool, even if he didn't have chestnut hair. As the demon prince pressed if she wasn't afraid of him, Mikulia stated she wasn't, admitting that, while she had been surprised at first, she had realized he was a prince upon closer inspection.
The man questioned that she wasn't afraid if he was a prince and Mikulia affirmed, explaining that her prince was supposed to make her happy. She then watched as the man discussed trying a spell on her with his minion before grabbing her by the shoulders and drawing her close. She then listened silently as he called her face adorable, musing that their encounter might be fate. She looked to his face as he said he would try to do this without changing his appearance, then commanding her to look into his eyes.
After some time passed, Mikulia stood still as the man then whispered in her ear if she would come with him to his mansion, and she cheerfully replied that she would go. She watched as he debated with his minion and then tackled his chest, giggling as she hugged him. The demon prince patted her on the head and together the two of them started to walk back to the village, before the cat reminded him it would be bad for him to be seen talking to her in daylight.
The cat then jumped on Mikulia's shoulder and she heard it whisper to her to go home alone for today and sneak out at midnight. Mikulia pointed out she didn't know the way to the prince's mansion and the cat said she would remain in the village to guide her at midnight. Mikulia told her to please do so and reluctantly released her prince, running back to the village.
- "Mikulia Greeonio... I talked to you about her before, didn't I?"
"One of Sateriasis Venomania's lovers... and also, someone who looked a lot like the Original Sinner, is that right?"
- ―Elluka Clockworker and Held[src]
Later that night, the tailor joined the other ladies in the basement to watch Sateriasis attempt a magic ritual to wipe the memories of all the witnesses. After the duke began the ritual and recited the ceremonial words, Mikulia repeated them poorly. As she continued making errors in the chant, I.R. stopped her in her white-haired girl form and told her to just stand there quietly. Disappointed, Mikulia agreed to obey and watched as the sword he held lit up and dispersed outside the mansion.
Once the ritual was complete, Sateriasis collapsed in a nearby chair and related that he successfully erased everyone's memories of him ever encountering the three of them. Afterward, the duke stood up again and wrapped an arm around Mikulia's waist, asking if they should finally be off. Once Venomania explained to I.R. he planned to take her to the bedroom and she refused to join them, the two walked over to the bedroom and made love with each other all night.
Afterward, they made love with each other for the next three days and three nights, moving into one of the rooms in the basement. Ordered never to leave the basement to keep Venomania's harem a secret, Mikulia complied. Once she moved into the basement with Lukana, the two began cleaning up the dreary place over time, adding a few decorations. Whenever Sateriasis came down to see them, the girl happily welcomed him back from the "outside world". As Mikulia continued referring to Venomania as her "prince", the tailor continuously corrected her to refer to him formally by name and the peasant girl abided.
Later on, Lukana gave Mikulia a new pink dress she tailored to help please Sateriasis and the overjoyed girl began wearing it. When Sateriasis later entered the basement, Mikulia welcomed him back before singing for him to look at her new clothes, proudly expressing that Lukana made them for her. She then noticed another, older woman with him and cautiously asked who she was.
After the duke introduced her to Lolan Eve, citing she'd be living with them as well, the girl kindly greeted the dark-skinned "old lady". When Lolan greeted her in kind, adding she never expected Sateriasis to have such poor taste that he'd welcome a little girl that smelled of the country into his home, the offended Mikulia raised an eyebrow at her. As the two smiled while exchanging annoyed glares, Sateriasis broke up the tense atmosphere and took Lolan to see the rest of the basement, leaving Mikulia.
After Gumina Glassred joined the harem in March later that year, Mikulia noticed Sateriasis spend most of his time in the basement solely with the quiet aristocrat. Jealous, the girl assumed them to be rivals for the Duke's affection and treated her harshly, earning Gumina's disdain in turn. When Lukana attempted to reconcile the two's differences, Mikulia failed to be convinced otherwise.
Journey to MysticaEdit
- "The one who will be in charge of the "body" will be... You'll do it, Mikulia Greeonio."
Sometime later, she began playing with the lifeless body, dressing it up like a doll. When Lukana said I.R. would be mad at her later, Mikulia asked why since she was making her cute. After the tailor explained the body wasn't a doll, Mikulia sulked that she couldn't buy one before as a peasant and was happier with her new life at the mansion.As she prepared to paint the body's lips, Lukana held her back and insisted she stop scribbling all over it. When Mikulia tried to argue that it was makeup, Lukana coldly told her that the mage would turn her to ashes, scaring the girl.Lukana then noted her pendant and Mikulia confirmed it was emerald, relating how the Duke gifted it to her. When asked if she liked Venomania, Mikulia exclaimed she loved him, adding that he never called her stupid like her parents; caught on the train of thought, she leapt at Lukana, exlclaiming that she liked her too. Remembering Gumina, Mikulia calmed down and lowered her head, admitting she didn't like her.
After a brief silence, Lukana related her belief that they should all get along for Duke Venomania's sake. Conflicted, the girl expressed her hesitation when the tailor stated she was sure they could become close friends despite their different backgrounds. Wondering if that was really so, Mikulia listened while Lukana explained that people of polarizing characters had greater capacity to understand one another.
Once Sateriasis and the sorceress returned from their journey, the body was taken back, and Mikulia returned to pleasing the Duke's whims. During this time, she was given a doll to play with and eventually, the Demon of Sloth was transferred from her to the vessel. At some point, she became pregnant with Sateriasis' child. When the disguised Karchess Crim successfully stabbed the Duke in EC 137, Mikulia fled the mansion with the other women.
Soon after, she discovered her pregnancy and, once the child was born, she fled from the village with her newborn son. Later that year, she ended up at a brothel in Lasaland and became a prostitute, pleasuring the local customers around Lasaland. Sometime after, she met Elluka Clockworker while the mage was investigating the Venomania Event. At some point during the visit, Mikulia died.
Following her death, Mikulia was sent to the Heavenly Yard and remained there. In EC 998, she and the other souls were pulled back to the Third Period as the ground world merged with the Hellish Yard. Afterward, the girl returned to Duke Venomania's mansion in Lasaland and agreed to rejoin Sateriasis' harem along with Lukana, Gumina, and Maylis.
While attending to Venomania at his throne, Mikulia leaning over the chair on his right shoulder, the group noticed Allen Avadonia walk in on them and Mikulia watched curiously as he and the duke conversed. When Allen then began conversing with Maylis, Sateriasis wrapped his left arm around Mikulia while drinking tea. Some time after Allen left, the Master of the Hellish Yard visited and took Venomania back to the bowels of the Hellish Yard.
Following her death, the Demon of Sloth used hypnosis to create a persona in her image, fleeing from the brothel and becoming a florist in Calgaround. Believed to be the same woman by historians, the exploits of the "Flower of the Plateau" were later attributed to Mikulia, as well as her former handler and son later seeking her out and being murdered by the doll.
Similarly, it was believed by Elluka Clockworker that Phantom Thief Platonic had descended from her lineage. Centuries after her death, Elluka's investigation into the Flower of the Plateau led her to discover Mikulia's alleged life in Calgaround after her official death, eventually uncovering the reality about the fake Mikulia versus the real one she witnessed die.
Personality and TraitsEdit
- "Mikulia, about Lord Venomania... Do you like him?"
"I love him! Because Lord Venomania doesn't call Mikulia stupid like Papa and Mama. I love him! Oh, and, and, I like Lukana too!"
- ―Lukana and Mikulia[src]
Often merry and eager to entertain herself, Mikulia approached situations with a cheerful and carefree demeanor; as a result of this approach, she seemed unconcerned with the consequences of her actions and unaware of the reality of certain situations, though easily cowed by harmless hearts. Likewise, while Mikulia was initially horrified upon meeting the Duke in his demonic form, she later convinced herself that he was her fantasized Prince and ignored his more distasteful qualities.In addition, she hid various frustrations and disgust with her parents and social status. Having been criticized for poor intelligence since she was a child, the girl was extremely insecure about herself. On top of this, she grew to hate the other villagers around her for treating her like a nuisance, dreaming of any circumstance that could take her away from it, hence her fantasies of being whisked away by a handsome prince.
Because of this, Mikulia responded positively to any form of self-validation such as the attentions of a kinder and nobler figures in her life, becoming infatuated with Duke Sateriasis for being her fantasized prince. She also easily got along with those of her same social status who tolerated her behavior, though bitter towards aristocrats. Following the Venomania Event, Mikulia instead sought validation through the attention given to her through prostitution, happy to be popular with the locals.
Skills and AbilitiesEdit
- "The Lust spell didn't work. What's going on, I.R.?"
"Yeah… It looks like things have gotten a little out of hand. I can think of a few reasons why, but…"
- ―Duke Venomania and I.R.[src]
In contrast to her clueless demeanor, Mikulia demonstrated some skill in beautification, such as makeup and floral arrangements. Likewise, her beauty made her highly desirable as a prostitute and earning her popularity among attendants at the Lasaland brothel during her time there.
While she was a human vessel for the Demon of Sloth, Mikulia was immune to the powers of the other Demons of Sin and was able to understand I.R.'s speech while the mage spoke via her cat body. Due to being used as a vessel since conception, Mikulia also developed a youthful and beautiful appearance akin to that of Eve Moonlit.
Sateriasis Venomania: Mikulia's abductor. Mikulia fell in love with Venomania and joined his harem of her own free will, innocently seeing him as comparative to a kind prince come to rescue her from her unloving parents. After Karchess killed the duke, however, she fled with the other members and later wished only to hide their relationship due to the discrimination that it would bring her.
Lukana Octo: A fellow member of Venomania's harem. Mikulia cultivated a friendship with her while both were living with the duke, confiding in Lukana her frustrations with her background and dislike for Gumina. Mikulia respected Lukana's opinions, such as listening to her advice about trying to get along with everyone in the harem. While expressing love for the duke, she also claimed to like Lukana as well.
Gumina Glassred: A fellow member of Venomania's harem. Mikulia envied Gumina's aristocratic background and, due to this, did not get along with her while living with the duke.
Unnamed Son: Mikulia's son. Despite the circumstances surrounding his birth, Mikulia cared for the child enough to take him with her when fleeing from her home village.
Lolan Eve: A fellow member of Venomania's harem. Mikulia had a good relationship with Lolan during their time living with the Duke.
Mikulia Calgaround: The Clockworker's Doll in Mikulia's image. Mikulia's life was conflated with the life of the doll's persona, and many believed they were one and the same.
Conceptualization and OriginEdit
- Mikulia's surname seems to be a pun on "green onion", the character item of her representative Vocaloid.
- Mikulia's name is partially inspired by the name of her representative Vocaloid, Hatsune Miku, with both names sharing the first four letters.
- Mikulia's son was one of the three offspring of Venomania to carry the potential to develop Hereditary Evil Raiser Syndrome and pass it onto future generations.
- A Freezis Fairy Tale inspired by Duke Venomania is titled "The Duke and the Four Women", likely a reference to Lukana, Mikulia, Gumina, and Maylis' prominent appearance with Sateriasis in various media.
