"The house feels colder without you for some reason. It's summer, and I've lit the fireplace, but it's still chilly."
Chise seems to be a typical teenage girl, though with a somewhat meek, subservient personality and issues with socialization, having had been considered an oddball by other children her age. She also tends to become attached to others quickly, particularly those who show her kindness. This exterior, however, belies a kind and courageous interior willing to go above and beyond in helping others, even at her own expense.
Though polite and kind, Elias is noted to be immensely reclusive because of his inability to relate to humans and rarely interacts with others as a result. Elias is extremely fascinated by humans and their emotions, which he attributes to being unable to experience them himself. To this end, he has adopted the mannerisms of a classic "gentleman" and closely studies people, though is usually unable to imitate their examples. Though withdrawn, he has a tendency to be aloof and has an unfriendly streak with certain people.
1) Chise's surname Hatori (羽鳥) means "wing of a bird" .
2) Because of Elias' horns, he can only sleep sitting up or laying on his chest.
3) The name Chise uses the kanji "Chi 智" which means wisdom and "Se 世" which means generations; the Tibetan origins of Se refers to generations of trees. That makes her name mean, "descendant of the tree of knowledge".
