|“|| “Without Lady Crusch, I wouldn’t be who I am! So give her back to me-now! I don’t care about mistaking you! I don’t care about fathers! I’m not joking around!’’
Look at these skinny arms! I can’t even wield a sword! Can’t hold a shield! I’m her knight, and these worthless arms can’t even fight for her! And my legs are no better! I can’t run fast or jump high… I can’t do anything! All I want is to protect her, and I can’t even do that!”
“You stole it from me! You stole it from me and left me empty… Lady Crusch gave me my way of life, my way of being!”
And after all you’ve done, you still want to keep taking from me! Will you steal from me again, something I value more than my own life?! You won’t, damn you…! Damn you!!
|~ Felix to his father, Bean Argyle|
Felix Argyle, commonly known as Ferris, is Crusch Karsten's knight. From the moment of Felix's birth, he had cat like features due to his ancestors having Demi Human blood, both his parents were humans so they both suspected the other of having an affair. As a result, his parents mistreated him and he was locked in the basement of the Argyle Mansion for the first nine years of his life where he was barely cared for. The basement was dark and his parents never spoke to him, when he was found by Crusch, she described him as "a fragile boy who was painfully thin, was black from being covered in dirt and filth, and couldn't talk properly".
Crusch took him to the Karsten Mansion to be cared for and his parents lost their standing with the Karsten Family, leading to their decline. Felix was able to speak properly after being taken care of at the Karsten Mansion but because he had spent nine years without human contact, his speech was damaged, and he speaks in a cat like manner. To imitate Crusch and support her dressing like a man, Felix decided to dress like a female. He became friends with Fourier, who was the former fourth prince of Lugnica and Crusch's childhood friend, and to gain prestige as Crusch's knight Felix joined the Royal Guard on several recommendations, including Fourier's own, and he quickly became friends with both Reinhard and Julius.
Felix's father, Bean, began associating himself with a slave trader and Crusch headed to the Argyle mansion on her own. Crusch was drugged by Felix's father in order to take back Ferris, and was handcuffed to a pole in Ferris' basement room. Felix demanded that his father release Crusch, Bean however treated his outburst as a childish tantrum, and then explained that he wanted Felix to use the Immortal King's Sacrament to resurrect his wife. His father had stabbed his mother to death repeatedly in a fit of rage because he thought she blamed him for everything that had happened.
Felix used the Immortal King's Sacrament to reanimate his mother's body, which then proceeded to strangle his father to death, as a result of the magic being incomplete. Crusch was able to free herself. Felix's friend Fourier died of an unknown sickness afflicting the royal family, and later Crusch got the qualifications to be the next ruler, Felix was knighted by Crusch and they began their journey for the throne. Felix has a huge attachment to Crusch, as she is what made him human, has such a massive attachment to her, that if she were to be taken away, he would be utterly broken as a person, he does whatever it takes to protect Crusch, and will kill anyone that hurts her.
He also has a strong attachment to life, and hates those who are weak.
