Duke Serjiad (High Lord Sergiatte Cowen in Crunchyroll's subs, "Duke Sergiad" in Yen Press' translation) is the head of the Corwen clan, ruler of Maihama, and the chairperson of the Eastal League of Free Cities. His birthday is on December 5.
He had two daughters, Langrissa and Saraliya, with his late wife. While Langrissa chose not to marry or have children, Saraliya later married Feynail and bore three children: Risselthea, Rayneshia, and Iselus.
He has a somewhat old, wizened appearance with completely white hair, with both a beard and a mustache. Like his granddaughter Rayneshia, he has blue eyes. He is always seen wearing his crown.
Outwardly, he has a commanding presence and is treated with the utmost respect by his fellow nobles. Inwardly, he is open-minded and sees the Adventurers more as equals rather than as potential members of the League unlike other nobles. He later decides not offer them membership and instead signs a treaty of non-aggression and basic trade between them.
Despite being an NPC with a Western-themed lifestyle, Serjiad has a penchant for Japanese cuisine where his favorite food are dorayaki and wakame. Before going to sleep, he apparently has a need to drink a warm glass of milk.

While he was satisfied that the crisis with the Goblin armies was resolved and relations with the city of Akihabara and the Round Table Alliance had been established, he was still disappointed by his granddaughter's brash actions to enlist the help of the adventurers. In order to make up for it, he sent her to be the official ambassador of the people of the land and the League of Freedom Eastals in Akihabara.

Duke Cowen and Isaac have been having weekly meetings with each other since Isaac was placed in Maihama to train their knights and have become quite friendly with one another.

Isaac agrees both to take care of him and to train him under his wing.
