"Naofumi-sama..Well, I just want to say...I'm truly grateful I met you. You cured my illness and fed me warm meals. You taught me how to live. And you gave me a reason to fight...a reason to fight the waves. I am your sword! Where you go, I will go with you."
Naofumi was originally an extremely trusting and positive person, he was also enthusiastic about his situation when initially summoned. However, his mentality changed abruptly after he was betrayed by Princess Malty. Left penniless, framed as a rapist, and hated, Naofumi becomes distrustful, cynical and spiteful towards the world. He could not trust anyone as a traveling companion except when they had a slave contract. He always assumes others are trying to get something from him. Eventually, he recovers more of his caring side and begins treating Raphtalia like a daughter rather than a slave (though she would prefer that he treat her more like a woman). He silently notes that he wouldn't let himself die until Filo and Raphtalia achieve happiness.
Raphtalia was initially very shy, sickly, and fearful as a result of her status as a slave, as well as suffering from trauma with memories of the destruction of her village. After the encounter with the two-headed dog monster, she overcomes the trauma from her parents' death at the hands of the Cerberus and acknowledges Naofumi as a hero in her own mind. The current Raphtalia is focused on efficiency, in both combat, training and money expenditures. She is extremely devoted to Naofumi and harbors feelings for him which he remains oblivious to, preferring to see her as his 'daughter' he raises in lieu of her deceased parents. As she matures, Raphtalia not only becomes much more skilled and deadlier in battle, but she also gets much bolder, opinionated, stronger-willed and fiercely protective of her beloved Naofumi.
Filo's personality has varied greatly throughout the story. Filo originally acted like any normal animal, prior to her transformation ability. After Filo gained the ability to transform, her personality became that of a spoiled child; she would refuse orders until she was fed, would throw fits when Naofumi wouldn't sleep in the same bed as her, and would randomly transform whenever she saw fit. Though she is comparatively smart to others of her own kind, she mostly an airhead and doesn't pay much attention to anything that she has no interest in. She will often doze off when others are talking about things she has no interest in. She has a poor understanding of behavior, culture and common sense.
