Koshu (江朱, Kōshu) worked in Kokuboro's General Affairs Department. He has been serving Princess for over 300 years[1], and is both the designer and the administrator of the castle.


Koshu's human form is a very short, black-haired man with glasses. His true form is that of a red octopus demon, and oddly enough, he stays the exact same size.


Koshu is a devoted follower of Princess, and is obsessed with the state and cleanliness of the castle, which he considers his.
