- "A monarch's force is something that's only shown. It's about making your enemy know that they won't escape unharmed if they oppose you. That's what a monarch's force is."
- — George to Gaap
George Ushiromiya (右代宮 譲治 Ushiromiya Jōji ) is the son of Eva Ushiromiya and Hideyoshi Ushiromiya, first appearing in Legend of the Golden Witch. He has a relationship with the servant Shannon and wishes to marry her.
Eva and Hideyoshi's son.
An affable young man liked by everyone in the family. He is currently studying as an assistant for his father's company, and it seems he dreams of making it on his own one day.
As the oldest of the four cousins, he acts as their leader and arbitrator.
George appears as a fairly young man and is described as a typical average man that is not too ugly nor too handsome. He has black curtained, short straight hair and black colored eyes (in later adaptations, his eye color is green). He has bad vision so he is always seen wearing glasses. He is of average height, standing at approximately 170 cm and has pale skin. In the original sound novels he was thicker, but in later adaptations, he was changed to being fairly slim.
George's formal attire consist of a black long sleeved buttoned shirt with a white tie. Over it is a brown vest with the Ushiromiya family crest and over it is a green suit. He also wears green trousers and black shoes. His casual attire in the sound novels and the anime consist of a black jacket, a green sleeveless shirt, and black pants. He also wears a dog tag neck cord. His casual attire in the PS3 version consist of a blue jacket, a buttoned long sleeved light blue shirt, and white trousers. Like in the original version, he also wears a dog tag neck cord.
George is polite and good at resolving a tense situation. He is the only cousin who had not made fun of Maria for believing in witches and magic. He is often praised by the other members of the Ushiromiya member to be mature and knowledgeable in many things such as tea.
He loves Shannon and has stated at times that he will do anything to be with her. According to Answer to the Golden Witch, were he to find out Shannon's true gender, he would be more than happy to modify his plans to the future with her. When he was younger, George initially displayed jealousy towards Battler for getting close to Shannon, but he has since overcome those feelings.
In school, he had been bullied by other kids and runs away when he sees others being bullied unless the person is his friend. George also held negative feelings towards Jessica and Battler when he was younger, thinking that he was superior to them because they spoke in vulgar ways.
Skills and Abilities
Having been personally trained since childhood by his mother, George is an absolute master in various forms of martial arts and, just like Eva, he demonstrates a preference in fighting exclusively with kicks. In the Meta-World he proves to be such a fast, agile and powerful adversary that he not only could easily eliminate goats and confront higher level demons like Gaap, but he even manages to overcome and kill EVA-Beatrice.
His axe kick is also powerful enough to smash a human skull (as shown in Alliance of the Golden Witch).
As a young man, George was forced by Eva to take classes on all sorts of subjects, including music and martial arts. In his visits to Rokkenjima during the family conference, he fell in love with Shannon and would eventually make her his fiancee.

Role in the Games
He proposes to his fiancee Shannon, giving her a ring and asking to put it on whichever hand she desires.
The next morning, George cries over knowing that Shannon was killed. He doesn't see her corpse and is more content with remembering her smile.
Later, his parents are killed on the second twilight, and George falls further into despair.
George becomes one of the last few survivors and is killed on the tenth twilight.
Even though everyone was getting along so well after being reunited in the Golden Land, all of the magic came to nothing because of a certain hardheaded fool.
Afterwards, the demons chewed him to the bone, and he went to hell.
Before 1986, George starts to build his relationship with Shannon, going on a date with her to an aquarium.
Died in Natsuhi's room, with his his stomach pierced by a weapon shaped like a stake.
At the sixth twilight, gouge the stomach and kill.
It was possible that they would've ended up as the second twilight.
Heads to the parlor with Beatrice to revive Shannon, but is soon killed by EVA-Beatrice.
His corpse was found in the mansion's parlor. The weapon used on him is assumed to be a gun or a spear-shaped object.
In exchange for his soul, the witch gave 8 numbers.
If you say it, a small Golden Land will be opened.
As part of Kinzo's trial, he is examined by Gaap. The two engage in a duel, and George uses his martial arts skills and physical prowess to fight on par with her. In the end, he's teleported in front of Jessica and they kill each other; George's kick destroys Jessica's head while Jessica's supersonic punch gouges a hole through his gut. Gaap then restores his corpse and jabs a hole into his head.
His corpse was found in the arbor of the rose garden. There was a single hole right in the center of his forehead. It's probably reasonable to assume hat he was shot with a gun or something similar.
It's a brand of humiliation, marking his defeat to Gaap.
Was killed in the first twilight.
His body was discovered in the cousins' room on the second floor of the guesthouse.
The direct cause of death is unknown, but his neck was slashed open by a sharp knife.The wound is very deep, so anyone can easily see that he definitely died.
As part of the love trial, George targets his mother Eva. After approaching her, she transforms into EVA-Beatrice and they fight. After a lengthy battle, George emerges victorious.
In the Tea Party, he is killed by Rudolf with one shot in his side and one shot in his head.
In Bernkastel's game, he is killed by Rudolf, Kyrie, and Battler.
George is a playable character, specializing in close-ranged kick attacks. His special ability is "Patience", where he gains SP while blocking. Has story modes with Jessica, Shannon, Ronove, and Beatrice.
- In the sound novels, his "casual wear" includes a set of dog tags and a T-shirt with the expression "TOMITAKE FLASH". Both seem to be a reference to Higurashi character Tomitake Jirou.
- His alternate palette in Ougon Musou Kyoku is based on Miles Edgeworth, a character from the Ace Attorney series.
