Raji Shenazard (ラジ・シェメザード, Raji Shenazādo) is the Crown Prince of Tanbarun. He was nicknamed the "Stupid Prince" by many due to his selfish and mediocre attitude. After he helped rescue Shirayuki, the attitudes toward him changed and he was taken more seriously by others. 


Raji has brown hair and forest green eyes. He has a small beauty mark under his left eye and wears formal and royal clothes.  He has a very similar appearance to his father, though their hair textures are different.


Raji starts out as a very spoiled and irresponsible individual due to his lavish upbringing as the prince heir. He commands very little respect from his people and servants, who view him as an embarrassment of a prince. After meeting Zen ( who has been known to refer to him as "Prince Moron") he is revealed to be quite timid and his fear of Zen is portrayed as a source of comedy, although they eventually grow to be able to work with one another with more respect. He is also somewhat socially awkward, relying a great deal on his attendant Sakaki to speak for him. Later on in the series, as he befriends Shirayuki, he undergoes drastic changes in personality and work ethic as he slowly becomes a prince that Shirayuki and Tanbarun can be proud of.


He was the story's first antagonist when he tried to force Shirayuki to be his concubine. He accidentally poisoned Zen with a basket of apples meant for Shirayuki which put him on Zen's bad side. Raji was the one who accidentally started the rumour that Zen considered Shirayuki to be his fiancé which lead to a few more problems along the track. He eventually became a comrade to Zen after Shirayuki was captured and was willing to help.


"It would be a pity to let the girl who can entertain my eyes so much go somewhere far away." —Raji teasing Shirayuki
"The red headed young lady you are holding against her will is the only person who has received the title Friend of the Tanbarun Royal Family. Abandon your plans to escape!" —Raji defending Shirayuki


  • He has a habit of constantly snapping his fingers when he has made a decision.
