Julis-Alexia Marie Florentia Renate van Riessfeld (ユリス＝アレクシア・マリー・フロレンツィア・レナーテ・フォン・リースフェルト), usually known as Julis Riessfeld, is one of the main heroines of Gakusen Toshi Asterisk and a student of Seidoukan Academy. Julis's main objective behind entering Seidoukan is to make conditions better for those living in Lieseltania.
Julis is a beautiful girl with long, bright pink hair and cyan eyes. She wears the Seidoukan Academy uniform jacket and dress with a white blouse underneath, along with two key like headpieces on either side of her hair. She also wears a grey belt with light red designs. Her jacket has trimmings on the sleeves. Aspera Spina, Julis' weapon, is held in the right guard on her hips.
When Julis showed Ayato around the city, she wore a long sleeved thigh length dress with a pointed black collar with a button, a strip of white ruffles across the bust and a small black bow in the center. The edge of her sleeves and the dress are decorated with black lace, and the second layer of the dress is scalloped. She wore thigh high socks with white lace across the top, and heeled shoes. She also carries a black umbrella with a white flower pattern.
Right before the Lindwurm, Julis changed part of her appearance, changing to a left side ponytail with a feather shaped hair accessory sent to her from everyone at the orphanage, and got rid of her two headpieces.
Julis is elegant, proud, beautiful, hot-headed, stubborn, and can be cold to those she is unfamiliar with. However, underneath that cold, unfriendly facade, is an honorable, faithful, and loyal person who would do just about anything for a friend. Initially, she treats Ayato and his friends with (mostly) disdain, but eventually warms up to them and even calls them by their name. Julis has a fear of disappointment and rejection, and will do whatever it takes to keep her friends safe. She dislikes relying on others.
Julis was born the first princess of Lieseltania. As a child, she came across an orphanage, and developed a fast friendship with the children and Sisters of the orphanage, striking up an especially close relationship with Orphelia Landlufen.
She has also known Claudia Enfield since they were both young.
Strega (魔女): Julis mainly attacks by gathering her prana to create fire-based attacks. The image she uses when using her Strega abilities is flowers which is because of an experience with Orphelia about them. She combines these with her Aspera Spina, and later the Nova Spina, to great effect. Julis begins her moves by saying Bloom (咲き誇れ) or Open (綻べ) for her traps. During her duel with Fan Xinglou, she is shown to use a move that begins with Flourish (華めけ), though it is unknown if it falls under the previous two categories or if it's a new category of its own.

- Longiflorum (
鋭槍の白炎花): Julis waves her weapon to create large whitish-blue colored spears of fire along the path her weapon passed through.

In the anime, the spears are of a reddish-white color.

- Queen of the Night (
月華美人): While the move itself wasn't shown, when Julis used this in Xinglou's training area, the surrounding area was described to be burnt away, exposing the earth beneath, and Xinglou's clothes were burnt. In addition to that, numerous spell tags were attached to Julis' body, and when some of them flared up, Xinglou immediately replaced them with new ones. According to Xinglou, one mistake with this move could potentially cost Julis her life. Julis can only use this once per Festa, as using it wears down her stamina, mind, and prana to the limit, making her unable to fight in the next match if she wins.
Their relationship began with a bad start, with Ayato seeing her changing accidentally, culminating into a duel. However, throughout the course of the series, Julis comes to know Ayato better, and as a result values and trusts him more and more, even training together every day. As their relationship grows people around them began to realize that they aren't just "tag team partners". Eventually, Julis's brother asked them if would possibly get married or at least engaged. They later become tag team partners for the Phoenix and eventually win. They are both in Claudia's team for the Gryps.
