Wait.. I got it. That character, with the way we've been unsure of his/her sex is Vance. Wright's detective character:

From Wikipedia: "Philo Vance featured in 12 crime novels written by S. S. Van Dine (the pen name of Willard Huntington Wright), published in the 1920s and 1930s."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philo_Vance

Also: "According to some contemporary critics, these mannerisms of Vance were affectations, which made him look like a foppish dandy, a poseur. (See below for criticisms.) There is some indication that Van Dine wished the reader to question Vance's sexuality. In The Benson Murder Case, Vance is called a "sissy" by another character, and early in the book, as he is dressing, his friend Markham, asks if he is planning to wear a green carnation, the symbol of homosexuality during the late 19th and early 20th centuries."

Hehe...

EDIT: Unlikely.. but if it really is someone called 'Vance' and his name with kana ends up being 'Bansu,' I vote we all call him "Pantsu."
EDIT2: It worked for Guardrail and look how awesome she was!

Well, the eagle crest on it's clothes is limiting the speculation a little bit.

Also, the crest is on a banner hanging in the background...

My new theory is that this person is an actor performing in a play describing the Rokkenjima incident.

So, sounds like that's definitely Natushi and Rudolf talking about Ange.

It makes sense, Bernkastel writing Battler out of the story. 8) I had a feeling Beato and Battler would be gone...

Oh, that would be interesting, if they're Wright and one of his characters...that still brings up the question of "why is he wearing the head ring and one winged eagle", but that still sounds like it could be possible.

I'm thinking they aren't 1986 characters at least, more likely Meta or 1998 as has been said.
Ryuukishi does seem to put some weight on eye colour, all of the 'regular humans' have black eyes, Maria's are purpleish, possibly indicating that she isn't a witch in the regular world but certainly has connections to magic. Then all witches and demons and other such magical furniture have coloured eyes, blue, red and yellow, coincidentally(?) also the colours of the coloured text...

Look at this higher-res image of the cover.

Spoiler for hi-res:


Doesn't its facial structure resemble that of Battler's...?

...I wonder, is it possible in red that This Battler simply was never born?

Yes it does but with Ryukishi's drawing it's kind of hard to tell some characters apart based solely on their facial structure.

It would XD But we DO have Featherinne's book and all, why not just throw in another layer for the heck of it, might as well! There's 1986, 1998, Meta-World and uh...Featherinne's world? It can't make things THAT much more muddled!

...and playing Shkanontrice.

Which would still be no proof whatsoever that Shkanontrice actually exists, that would be a lovely troll.

It was a play all along! Cue the red filters, it's time for some on-stage red text! No, not the yellow filters! These stagehands are incompetent!

I did think that, perhaps, each different episode could be based on the story found in a message bottle, and none of them reflect the real truth...

Or something like that.

ocbx- It looked like an offering. A single small French doll sat on the side table. Its hair was gold......and it wore a black dress.

what about his clothes

Spoiler for clothes:


A crackpot theory yes but their clothes are similar and both women look similar too.

new character are quite strange but i have some possible thoeries.

The boy may related to battler. Red hair is red hair after all. the anchor pendant may make him the opposittle to battler (anchor=boat=I'm going to fall)

or maybe is a representation of the younger boat captain.

The girls seems more interesting to me. somebody had the theory of she being the illegetimate child or the one kyrie saws in ep2. That's something interesting.

On the She is holding a red rose so she might be related to Maria rose.

Also in the portrait there are a golden buttlerfly on the table. Maybe the golden brooch Beatrice gave shannon on ep2.

I think that this girl is also the doll of the screenshoots. that effect on the the image before can be one like a broken doll.

I wonder what would mean the white roses

And this is all I can think without reading ep6

loool

hey im usually good at telling the difference between gender in anime but i havent even thought that the portait "girl" could be a "guy" if she indeed is, then Ryukishi is capable of creating ultimate traps now, lol

anyway i dont think she is Jessica, Beatrice, Asumu and so on...if i was to choose i would bet on new chars..... or maybe at Rosa and Rudolf, but the guy is clearly "special" so it cant be

In the case that the male character in the portrait isn't Wright and that he's a 1986 character. I'm going with the theory that he's Kawabata = Maria's father. It would make sense since the characters look young at like 50 so he could look very different in 1998 than in 1986. Plus Kinzo said Maria's father was a nobody and Kawabata would fit that description. And I take the single red hair as hint.

I bet there's a really awesome reason for why he left too.

I'm just so excited about these new characters!
