He is the most skilled Royal Painter in Heiligh Kingdom.
Hope is an elderly man who looks extremely frail. During his youth, Hope was an average-looking man with no attractive features.
Hope Elegy was jealous of beautiful people in his youth due to him not being able to obtain a lover, which resulted in him creating a picture Artifact that would capture beautiful women as he wasn't satisfied with the women he drew in the picture. The picture was a reflection of Hope's delusions and fantasies. After Hajime teaches him about the wonders of "Moe", he regains his artistic spirit and sets about creating art based on Moe.
- Liliana S. B. Heiligh - Hope worked in the royal palace as a royal painter and Liliana greatly admires his work. He later resigns from his post to pursue more artistic endeavours after learning about the beauty of Moe from Hajime.
- Hajime Nagumo - Hajime took an interest in Hope's earlier work called "Hope Elegy’s Picture Collection of Beautiful People" due to it being a picture collection pseudo-Artifact, something he hadn't known to exist. After his Hope's picture collection swallows Hajime's female companions as well as Liliana, he works with Hope to return the girls to their bodies. After the matter is resolved, Hajime introduces him to the wonders of Moe as Hajime draws a picture of Yue to exemplify female beauty. This inspires Hope, who had lost his artistic luster to start painting again as he declared Hajime his Moe teacher.
