Dietrich von Bielenfeld is Wolfram's step-brother.
Wolfram married Yuuri Shibuya when he was 90, after an extraordinary series of wedding false starts. By then they were raising three children together. Though each child has a different, single, official parent, Wolfram is the main caregiver for: Greta Shibuya (Yuuri's adopted daughter), Frieda von Gratz (Adelbert's daughter, fostered to Wolfram), and Bertram. Much of the time Efram is also visiting. (GoT) The families plan to cross-foster Bertram and Avram.

- They add one more wedding disaster, but this time manage to get married - at last!
But what happened in the intervening 6 years, with these colorful failed weddings? Well...
During BoW, and 20 years before
Axel is two stories - the frame story is Wolfram's hard work with Manfred and Yuuri, trying to recover from his gang-rape in Mizrat. To do that, he has to come to terms with the deaths of his troop and what that meant to him. He looks back twenty years to when his troop was formed.

- Wolfram decides to become an officer.
- He goes to Bielenfeld to get a new commander and mentor - Gregor von Dienst.
- Axel is likewise promoted to sergeant under von Dienst's sidekick Sergeant Griesel.
- Wolfram and Axel break up - it's inappropriate for an officer to be in bed with his sergeant.
- Wolfram becomes an ice princess, no more lovers, until Yuuri shows up.
And back to the present.
- Wolfram comes to terms with the death of his troop and Axel.
- Wolfram and Yuuri finally go all the way as lovers.

- The family eventually finds and joins him.
- The phoenix asks each for a grief to redeem - Wolfram's is that Yuuri will age and die so soon.
- Manfred's lame leg is soon miraculously healing.
- Manfred's year is up, ruling Bielenfeld. He offers it to Wolfram.
- Wolfram turns it down. He also turns down Aldrich's offer to make Wolfram his heir.

- Wolfram stays young, and takes lovers as Yuuri loses vitality.
- Yuuri ages quickly and badly, and dies decrepit around age 60.

- Bertram becomes the next Maou.
Yuuri's Hot Date
two years after WTB, fifth year after BoW
- Wolfram breaks up with Yuuri for a couple weeks - he should date a girl and find out.
- Wolfram partakes at the late night gay bath scene...
- Yuuri is furious. He will date a girl, dammit! He does - twice.
- Wolfram lost his mind like this because Aldrich is holding a marriage ball for Wolfram's secret half sister, Kieran von Donaghie - who looks just like Wolfram.
- Wolfram and Yuuri dance with Kieran at the ball. Yuuri is smitten.
- Kieran wants to see them both privately.
- Manfred intercepts Kieran and explains he's her bio father - marrying Wolfram is impossible. But they have a private family picnic with her brothers.
- Yuuri's date with Kieran is a lame plot by Kieran and Greta to get her fathers back together.

- Kieran is betrothed to Sylvain von Tarkenburg, the new Lord Donaghie.
- Wolfram and Yuuri receive marriage counseling from Friedrich, Manfred, and Aldrich.

The Trouble with Trolls
half year after Date, sixth year after BoW
This story opens a whole new ballgame in the story arc. There are other Mazoku races in Shin Makoku - demons are just the most powerful. That's because Shinou killed most of the others - accidentally. The last great war on this subject, against Troll Mother, ended in a draw. It's time for round two.
- Most high-power demons (Aristocrats) have non-demon blood. This is news to Yuuri!
- Aldrich dispatches Wolfram to 'hide the heirs'. This fails - all the heirs get captured.
- They meet up with the wood nymphs Tariel and Garena. Garena is Manfred's real father - Wolfred von Bielenfeld was his mother - Manfred was grown from seed.
- Tariel is mother to Garena, Friedrich, and Emeraude von Bielenfeld - from whom many von Spitzwegs and von Wincotts are descended. And Wolfram, several times over.
- Wolfram's parents split. Manfred marries Aldrich. Cecilie is looking for a new career.
- Wolfram and Aldrich can produce seeds. Most turn into trees.
- After the strong magic of a troll midsummer dance, Wolfram and Yuuri have one seed able to grow into a demon baby - their joint biological child. Aldrich will plant this, and two of his and Manfred's seeds, next spring. Aldrich has the needed green thumb maryoku to draw a demon baby out of a sapling.
- Wolfram's fire healer maryoku is also a special variant - he's good at animals. He can communicate with more Mazoku races than most. He learns to talk to dragons.
