Alford Markina (アルフォード・マキナー) is a skilled swordsman who crossed paths with Yuuri in the first seasons of Kyou Kara Maou.
Alford was mislead for years to believe that Mazoku were evil, and he trained extensively in order to destroy them. However, after meeting Yuuri, he realizes that he was wrong and even managed to befriend them.
Alford is confronted by Velma who convinces him to join her on their quest to slay a dragon. He agrees, and when he meets Yuuri and Conrad in the forest, they cross swords. Conrad is revealed to have known Alford's father and it manages to break his ideals. He protects them from a rogue dragon, gaining favor with the king.
Alford is skilled at wielding his father's holy sword, and was not only able to fight on par with Conrad but also face a fully grown dragon.
