Milard is Claus's childhood friend who also shares somewhat of an emotional bond with him. A talented woman who graduated only second to Claus at the Royal Academy, she supports him in his research and teaches the neighborhood children of Euclid to read and write. Milard ultimately convinces Claus to help Cress Albane and Mint Adenade. Although she teases Claus from time to time, she cares deeply for him and often expresses her concern for him despite her strong belief that he will be alright. When Claus returns home at the end of the story, he is embraced by Milard.
