[[folder:Tasha Godspell]]

[[quoteright:233:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tasha_profile_4846.png]]
Tasha Godspell is a Black Class WH and the second disciple of Edea Florence. At the beginning of the series, his goal is to find his sister Aria, have her remove the curse she placed upon him and take her home to their mother. Obsessed with making money, Tasha's a proud swindler and rather stingy. His capacity for kindness only seems to surface in the company of women. The Great Witches East and North consider him instrumental to their respective plans, as either the savior or destroyer of humanity.

[[hardline]]
* AnArmAndALeg: In his battle with Lancelot in Britain he loses his right arm in Lancelot's attempt to sever his control to his Dimensional Gallery Glove. [[spoiler:It gets reattached later by Tania Doberg soon after the battle.]]
* AwesomeButImpractical: His Mana Gun Desert Eagle Custom can fire the force of ''10,000'' normal mana bullets in one shot. The downside? He can only fire it 3 times ''before his arm breaks from the recoil''.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassNormal: While his colleagues have access to [[KiAttacks mystical]] [[SuperNaturalMartialArts martial arts]], [[DishingOutDirt earth spirits]], [[ShockAndAwe lightning powers]], and [[GravityMaster gravity manipulation]], all Tasha has is an [[HyperspaceArsenal arsenal]] of Magic Bullet Guns and [[SuperReflexes reflexes]] honed by years worth of [[TrainingFromHell training]]. Still manages to kick ass in a [[WorldOfBadass World Of Badass]].
** BadassLongCoat: His custom uniform in WH.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: After the activating [[DeadlyUpgrade Moirai's Confinement]], Tasha soon finds out that [[spoiler:he has his very own source of {{Mana}}.]]
* BagOfHolding: His Dimensional Gallery Pouch served as this. He later replaces this with a [[TrickedOutGloves pair gloves]].
* Main/BarehandedBladeBlock: [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/witch_hunter/v01/c002/9.html Tasha knows how to do it]].
* {{Berserk Button}}: '''Never''' speak ill of Tasha's deceased master Edea or his white hair that she granted him. If you get in his way of saving Aria or try to take his Halloween away, he'll fill you with mana bullets. Never insult the wonder and glory that is '''money''', [[SeriousBusiness for it makes the world beautiful and worth living in]].
* BodyguardCrush: Tasha cares deeply for Halloween, and is as willing and able to protect her as much as she does for him and cares more than anything about her happiness, but he is unsure [[spoiler:if the feelings he has for her can be described can be simplified as 'love'.]]
* CelibateHero: Tasha is well aware of every woman that has a crush on him and acts kindly towards all of them, but makes a clear point to not get into any kind of relationship with anyone.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Linda Cuthburt.
* ComedicSociopathy: Most of which is derived from his willingness to [[TriggerHappy fire upon allies]] when they annoy him.
* DeadlyUpgrade: Moirai's Confinement.
** DeathFromAbove: He can rain a meteor shower of mana bullets to completely annihilate an enemy.
** [[DrunkWithPower Drunk With Magic]]: Similar to that of a witch.
--->'''Tasha:''' [[LaughingMad HAHAHA!!]] This incredible power... Was this it... This must have been how Aria must have felt. This amazing feeling...!
** HeroicRROD: Because Tasha is utilizing the mana reserves of [[spoiler:his master, Edea, a powerful S-Class witch, his body cannot handle the magical output and begins to physically break down and drives him insane. The only solution is for someone with a similar mana type to save him using their energy. [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption But when the only known person is deceased...]]]]
** PersonOfMassDestruction: During Moirai's Confinement, a single bullet destroys a mountain and his following attack completely decimates the landscape.
** PowerDyesYourHair: From white to black to be exact.
** PsychoticSmirk: [[{{Jerkass}} This time]] it's ''not'' PlayedForLaughs.
** RedEyesTakeWarning: [[DeathFromAbove Especially]] [[NoKillLikeOverkill for witches]].

* DoorstopBaby: [[spoiler: He was this to the Godspells.]]

* EmergencyTransformation: To Halloween, in their first battle with Ryuhwan and Fergus. Albeit he was clueless to [[HumanityEnsues what releasing her first seal]] [[HilarityEnsues would mean...]]
* Main/EvenTheGuysWantHim: He's the exception to Xing's [[InformedAttribute hatred of guys]].
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: When East knocks Tasha out and brings him to her cottage, he doesn't believe that she's East, because the four great witches are all supposed to live in grand castles and be "super glamorous sexy babes," whereas East looks like... [[DudeLooksLikeALady Merlin.]] [[http://www.mangapanda.com/witch-hunter/78/40 East's response is very swift.]]
* ExperiencedProtagonist: By the start of the series, he is already an established A Class WH, one of the highest ranks within the organization.
* FieldPowerEffect: By using the entirety of his Dimension Gallery Pouch, Tasha can invoke a battlefield where he can control the path of his mana bullets after they are shot. [[spoiler:During Moirai's Confinement, his control with this technique can increase the area of effect to a ''tremendous'' amount with the added bonus of having falling snow that [[ManaDrain drains the mana]] of whoever it touches.]]
* FriendlySniper: After his training with [[spoiler:Ryuhwan]] he gains a Long Range Barrett Custom enabling him to snipe enemies over vast distances.
* Main/{{Greed}}: He '''loves''' money. This trait also applies to ''all his possessions''. Even if it would be to his advantage to give something up, he will refuse.

** GunFu: For RuleOfCool.
** GunKata: Mana Gun Direct Combat Technique: Gun Battle.

* Main/ImpoverishedPatrician: According to the author's note, his family used to be nobles.
* IncompletelyTrained: Ryuhwan claims that Tasha being weaker than him is perfectly reasonable since he received their master's full training while Tasha's training was incomplete. [[spoiler:Ryuhwan takes it upon himself to complete Tasha's training.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He spends half his time as a WH scamming people out of their money, 25% of the time attacking his own allies for ruining chances for money, 12.5% of the time insulting everyone and everything he can, [[OverlyLongGag 6.25% of his time praising Tania, 3.125% of the time scamming more people out of money, and 3.125% of the time fighting witches]]
* JerkassWithAHeartOfGold: Beneath his truly horrible attitude and jerk ass to an extreme tendencies, he is a a nice guy... Sometimes... Really just hope you're not Tarras or Cooga. Or you either take his money or insult it.

--->'''Tasha:''' You still don't get it. My life isn't as precious as Aria's.
* LivingMacGuffin: He can either serve as the key [[spoiler:to North's plan to wipe out humanity, or to stopping it and saving humanity.]] According to Aria, he has no choice in the matter. [[spoiler:He's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: he's just a key and a tool.]]
* MadnessMantra: He's ''really'' hates how he couldn't stop Aria from becoming a witch.
--->'''Tasha:''' I couldn't protect her. I couldn't protect her. I couldn't protect her...
* MageMarksman: PlayedWith. By using the Dimensional Gallery Glove he can also utilize some of his master's spells to a lesser degree but consumes a large amount of {{Mana}} he's collected from Witches, limiting his usage of them. [[spoiler:After awakening his own {{Mana}} source he plays this straight, using more mana based abilities without worrying about the vast mana consumption.]]
* MissingMom: His mother is still alive, but hasn't been seen once in the entire series. [[spoiler: She's also his adoptive mother. We have no idea who his real mom is.]]
* MyGreatestFailure: That he couldn't protect his sister from becoming a witch.

* TrickedOutGloves: His Dimensional Gallery Glove is a tool left by his master to serve as a gateway to access his guns and [[NonHumanSidekick Halloween]] from an [[HyperspaceArsenal alternate dimension]] where he stores them.
* Main/TriggerHappy: [[UnfriendlyFire To the ire of his allies.]]
* WorfEffect: Despite being an established {{Badass}}, as the series goes on, majority of Tasha's fight losses against [[TheRival Ryuhwan]], [[CastingAShadow Varete]], [[FailureKnight Lancelot]], and [[PersonOfMassDestruction East]] show that Tasha has a long way to go before being strong enough to fight strongest threats in the WH universe.

* IDontWantToRuinOurFriendship: Played with. She has no angst over her feelings for Tasha and simply does not show her love because of Tasha's habit of shying away from people who seek a relationship with him. She is entirely happy with the knowledge that as his supporter, she'll always be the closest person to him and be one of the few people to see the real him.

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tarras_cover_2918.png]]

Tarras is a Black Class WH, he has power over Earth and is seen as egotistical and refers to himself with the suffix -nim (Korean equivalent of -sama). He is skilled and while under the control of a witch even Tasha and Xing could not defeat him. His personality constantly antagonizes many people, which has Tasha tease him by calling him an extra and noting how he was defeated by his little sister, being controlled by a Witch and owes him half his paycheck. He was suppose to be an unnamed extra according to the author, but they expanded his role. His hobbies include gardening, he likes receiving praise and the plants he grows and hates being ignored.

His sister is Tania, the S-Class Administrator of the North and the only person he fears.

* ButtMonkey: He's mocked by his own sister, teammates, personal assistant, and the Witch who tramples his attempts at a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. The author [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] Tarras' Buttmonkey status in an omake, where Tarras mopes in a [[CornerOfWoe corner]] about his lack of good scenes. If you revisit Monica's arc, where at least Xing respects him, you'll see just how much of a Buttmonkey Tarras has become.
* Main/DishingOutDirt: His main form of attack.
* InsufferableGenius: Oh dear. For all his power and skill, the first part seems to blur the second to oblivion thanks to his constant status as ButtMonkey.
* Main/LargeHam: Especially when he feels like [[{{Buttmonkey}} he's mistreated]].
* PeekABangs: Tarras has got one over his left eye, which has earned the loving FanNickname of Emo Haircut. Not that you can blame anyone with cover art like [[http://www.mangatoshokan.com/read/Witch-Hunter/Meep-Scans/10/4 this]]. Tanya's hairstyle mirrors his, hiding her right eye.

* Main/{{Phobia}} : He's very afraid of his older sister [[LadyOfWar Tania.]]

[[folder:S Class WH]]

!! Vihyungrang
[[quoteright:233:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vihyungrang_character_9532.png]]

An S-Class WH, said to be the strongest of his kind. He keeps watch on Tasha as per his promise to Tasha's master, Edea. After sending Tasha and friends on their mission to Bairong and Britain, he confronts the East Witch who has been spying on the Witch Hunters. He fights her and nearly gets killed, but Eunryu interrupts and thus both stop fighting.
[[hardline]]
* AttackReflector: By utilizing his Earth Phantom Maiden, he can reflect attacks from the likes of '''Surtr'''.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: The administrator of WH's Western District and the most powerful S class WH in the organization.
* {{Badass}}: The strongest WH in existence [[spoiler:behind Edea Florence]] and shown onscreen, capable of disarming the most powerful A class WH, forcing one of the [[PersonOfMassDestruction Four Legendary Witches]] into becoming serious, and is considered as strong as ''two'' White Class WH.
* BigGood: Being the strongest WH automatically ranks him as this. [[spoiler: Until he goes off for training.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In his first appearance, he disarms [[TheGunslinger Tasha]], [[LittleMissBadass Halloween]], [[ShockAndAwe Cooga]], and [[GravityMaster Words]], singlehandedly.
* {{Megane}}
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: He has the ability to see the souls in all living things, which allows him to detect the East, who manages to hide from WH's general detection methods.

* TakingYouWithMe: Attempts this on a powered-up Surtr, but is interrupted by Eunryu.
* ThePromise: In the past he made a promise with Tasha's master, Edea, that he would protect him. And to him he considers it ''more important than the world's existence.''
* WhipItGood: By utilizing his Fire Phantom Maiden, he can turn his scarf in a fiery whip capable of cutting through [[NighInvulnerability Surtr]].
* WorldsStrongestMan: The strongest WH alive currently.

!! Tania Doberg
[[quoteright:233:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tania_character_8301.png]]

The S-Class Administrator of the North and Taras' older sister. She is considerably stronger, able to use Flower of Earth (a much, much bigger one) without a chant, only tapping the ground with her staff. Tania interrupts Tasha's fight with Lancelot and forces him to retreat without much effort. Tasha said he and Taras were a team, which prompted Tania to give him a lollipop. She mistook Tasha as a girl at first.
[[hardline]]
* AbsoluteCleavage: Her outfit gives a nice view of her ample bosom.
* Main/AllThereInTheManual: She's not, in fact, a witch. [[NoExportForYou Extra material]] explains the Doberg family have shamanic powers over spirits. The NiceHat [[GogglesDoNothing just looks nice.]]
* [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Big Sister]]: She acts like she doesn't care about Tarras and invokes utter fear within him with her mere presence but [[HiddenDepths behind closed doors]] it's shown she's very protective of her brother and looks forward to seeing him, so much she forgets about everything around her when he is the only thing on her mind.
* AttentionWhore: Runs in the Doberg family line. When Tasha turned to look at Cooga for a spilt second, she responded by sending Cooga flying with a rock pillar and turning him into a basic smear on the wall meters away, then tells Tasha that ''she'' should never look away from her.
* Main/AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: She's the head of Doberg family for a reason.
* {{Badass}}: As expected of the 3rd strongest S-Class Witch Hunter.
* BigGood: After Edea Florence's death and Vihyungrang's departure for training, she's currently the strongest WH at disposal at the moment.
* [[BigBrotherBully Big Sister Bully]]: If Tarras's complete and utter fear of her wasn't your ''first'' clue then...
--->'''Tania:''' He lost his fear since I haven't seen him in a while. '''He needs to be reeducated.'''
* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sister Instinct]]: When asked between saving her brother and saving her entire team in a crisis she unhesitatingly ''always'' chooses saving Tarras.
* Main/BlueBlood: As a member of the Doberg family.
* BoobsOfSteel: Because crushing a steel door with ''one hand'' makes you more than qualified.
* CombatPragmatist: A firm believer that on the battlefield all enemies must be crushed without remorse, even when those like [[InnocentBystander Guinevere]], are not intending to fight at all.
--->'''Tania:''' This is the battlefield. There are only allies and enemies. And enemies... '''are to be thoroughly and brutally trampled on by any means necessary. This is the Doberg's teaching.'''
* TheComicallySerious: When she interacts with her fellow White Class.
* TheDreaded: For Tarras.
* Main/DishingOutDirt: As an Earth Spirit user, she can manipulate the earth and she's even ''more'' skilled than Tarras.
* Main/{{Expy}}: Tania resembles Olivier Armstrong from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''.
* FlatWhat: Her reaction when she learns that Tasha is actually a boy. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Probably also many a reader's reaction to her mistaking him for a girl in the first place.]]
* Main/HypocriticalHeartwarming: Only Tania can insult her younger brother, anyone else that does, well, it's just not a good idea.
* [[KnightTemplarBigBrother Knight Templar Elder Sister]]: See above.
* LadyOfWar: She's capable of incredible destruction at a tap of her staff and great grace when in combat.
* OneeSama: Type 3. She is regarded as such by Tarras but only out of absolute fear of her.
* {{Ojou}}: As the head of the [[BlueBlood Doberg family]].
* PeekABangs: Seems to be a Doberg family trait.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Tarras's strongest techniques can destroy entire villages. Tania's basic attacks are equivalent to that.
* PunchClockHero
--> ''"I am a WH only from 9 AM to 6 PM."''
* RedBaron: Empress of the Land.
* StaffOfAuthority: Not just for show, it also [[SwordCane contains a sword too.]]
* StatuesqueStunner: She's rather tall compared to her subordinates but nonetheless very beautiful.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Her personality tends to shift from hard authoritarian to kind and respectable. Her first interaction with Tasha and Cooga involves [[HypocriticalHeartwarming punishing Cooga for disrespecting Tarras]] and giving Tasha a lollipop upon hearing he is a teammate of her brother.
* ThisCannotBe: Alongside her FlatWhat after learning Tasha is a boy is her line, with a look of absolute shock.
--> ''"Nonsense!!"''

An S Class WH Witch based in the Eastern District. She possesses a very haughty attitude, often ridiculing her fellow S Class, even managing to get reactions out of [[TheStoic Tania Doberg]]. She is very close to her partner, Ian Borris, who is a fellow S Class that effortlessly manages to put with her attitude albeit treating her like a child occassionally much to her annoyance.
[[hardline]]
* BareYourMidriff: Due to her lack of a shirt.
* TheGadfly: She constantly ridicules Tania for her overprotectiveness of her brother and enjoys getting a reaction out her.
* HypocriticalHumor: She mocks Tania for sacrificing her entire team for the sake of her little brother but would do ''the exact same thing'' when asked what she would do in the exact same situation except if it regarded Ian.
* RedBaron: Sensory.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Her WH uniform is quite revealing. She wears barely any clothing, only wearing a jacket, shorts, and a tiny bra.

!! Ian Borris
[[quoteleft:230:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ian_smoking_3549.png]]

An S Class WH based in the Eastern District. He is a very mature man who tasks himself to prevent [[TheGadfly Agnes]] from constantly antagonizing their fellow S Class teammates.
[[hardline]]

* BadassInANiceSuit: His WH uniform consists of a nice white suit.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: He has two scars on his face, one running down his face and another going horizontal crossing through the other one on the right side of his face.
* MoralityChain: For Agnes. She is very fond of him, willing to sacrifice an entire team of WH at a moment's notice if he's in danger and he is the only one who is capable of telling her to stop annoying their teammates.
* RedBaron: Space Cutter.

!! D. Arlo
[[quoteright:165:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-d__arlo_debut_6828.png]]

An S Class WH based in the Northern District alongside Tania Doberg. In the past he was forcefully experimented on by his Witch master to gain unimaginable amounts of power but he was able to escape her control. Sometime in the future he joins the WH organization and becomes an S Class WH and has an incident where he battles Tania Doberg and is brutally defeated. D. Arlo is known for his volatile and murderous nature towards witches, both enemy and ally, and must be under heavy surveillance and evacuate any premises he travels upon. The only person who can halt these impulses is the mere presence of fellow S Class WH Tania Doberg.
[[hardline]]
* DropTheHammer: In a past flashback, he has been shown utilizing a hammer in combat.
* FreudianExcuse: His hatred for witches stems from being forcefully experimented upon by his Witch master, which gave him unnatural abilities and left him in a permanent state of madness.
* FantasticRacism: He '''despises''' witches, whether they are ally or enemy, his hatred for witches is so great that he has to exert immense effort not to kill every witch in his vicinity.
* {{Mutants}}: Due to his body modifications he is regarded as one in the WH universe.
* NighInvulnerability: Tania Doberg states that despite emerging as the victor in her battle with him, she was never able to land a killing blow on his hardened body, even with her full strength. Considering that she is amongst one of the strongest WH, even among the S Class, this is quite the amazing feat.
* RedBaron: [[PersonOfMassDestruction Destruction]].
* SubmissiveBadass: As an S Class he is among the strongest WH the organization has to offer but he only takes orders from Tania Doberg, the only WH that has brutally defeated him at his full strength and can halt his murderous impulse for witches.

[[hardline]]
* TheOmniscient: She can only see the past and present of those who she is in direct physical contact with and she can gather information from anyone in the world to display it via screens in the WH headquarters.
** NotSoOmniscientAfterAll: Though her future sight only works on people who won't be affected by any of the Four Great Witches in the future. [[spoiler:In addition, a mere D-Class WH is actually able to hack into her information network, screwing up Tasha's plan to leave WH with Halloween.]]
* MsFanservice: Her ''true'' form, which is actually a ''very'' voluptuous woman.
* PokeInTheThirdEye: She once attempts to spy on Varete, [[OhCrap who promptly glares back at her.]]
* PrescienceIsPredictable: The main reason of her continuous cooperation with Tasha is because she finds knowing everything to be boring and Tasha's unpredictable future involving the Four Great Witches piques her [[CuriousAsAMonkey curiosity]].
* {{Shapeshifter}}/ EmpathicShapeShifter: Due to the abilities of her supporter, Throne Room, she can only meet one person at a time, and for each visitor, she will appear as the person most emotionally attached to that person. For example, she looks like Aria when Tasha meets her. And not only that, she will also decorate her room so that it looks like the visitor's home. [[ShapeShifterGuiltTrip Tasha notably isn't happy with this treatment.]]

* BadassCreed: She gives a rather nice one when she was given [[JoinOrDie a chance to become apprentice]] to the witch that ''just killed her entire team''.
--->'''Elmar:''' Stupid question. Before I am a witch I am the knight of the Clark Du Chevaliers and a B-Class WH. '''Elmar Hyancith!''' As a knight I complete the task given to me with honor. '''Even if I shall lose my life!'''
* BloodyMurder: Her Tyrfing is a sword that draws her blood and creates a blade from it.
* BreakTheCutie: Back when she was a B-Class WH, she watched her entire team get wiped out by a single witch, before being saved by Xing and Tarras.
* CombatMedic: Heavy on the medic side. Her healing magic is so advanced she can save several A-Class WH from the attacks of the likes of ''Varete''. Varete even compliments her on the area of effect and potency of her healing skill.
* DealWithTheDevil: Her contract with [[EvilWeapon Tyrfing]] forces her [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind into it's mind]], which is basically a sea of endless blood, where a naked woman, [[BlackEyesOfCrazy sporting black eyes]], asks her to quench her insatiable thirst for blood in exchange for power, honor, glory, and destruction. [[SarcasmMode How nice.]]
--->'''Tyrfing:''' The choice is yours, foolish one.

[[folder:Four Great Witches]]

!!East
[[quoteleft:233:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/east-character_6184.png]]

East is a powerful witch which interferes with the North Witch's plan, though her intentions are unknown. She was once one of the four great witches, the one who governed over death and rebirth.

One of the great 4 witches, she guides Tasha and protects him, urging him to get stronger for her own goals. Her current form is smaller than before, stating she has lost a lot of her power, but unlike most witches she doesn't need a hat to store her mana. She also knew Tasha's teacher and Ryuhwan. She asks Ryuhwan to make a contract with her in exchange for the name of the one who killed his teacher; she also knows Halloween's true identity. She reveals to Vihyungrang how Tasha is needed by both her and North, but views him as a tool and key that has no purpose once used and he'll disappear in the end. This leads to a battle between the two.

Her supporter is the Fiery Earth of Musphelheim's King, Surtr. He's so powerful even Ryuhwan stated he had no chance against it in his released limiter form. He had to be supplied with Mana to fight Vihyungrang, which drastically changed the flow of the battle.
[[hardline]]
* ACupAngst: Tasha is [[WhatAnIdiot the one who points the small breasts out.]] She's not amused.
* AlmightyJanitor: She appears at first as harmless girl. She's actually one of the most powerful characters in the setting.
* BodyDouble: [[spoiler: The East everyone knew was actually her Sorella, Etwal, which looks a lot like Varette]].
* CovertPervert: She insisted on healing, washing and dressing Ryuhwan.
* Main/CuteWitch
* Main/DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Supplying Surtr with mana drains her so bad, she implies she can only do that a few times.
* EvilMentor: To both Tasha and Ryuhwan.
* FlunkyBoss: Her first battle with Tasha involved summoning a numerous amount of golems to assess his strength.
* HealingHands: She can cast healing magic.
* IWasQuiteALooker: A ''very'' unique variant. She used to [[spoiler:look nearly identical to Varete before North and South attacked her. Then again, that was her Sorella, although no one was aware of this fact.]]
* Main/IAmNotLeftHanded: Her Surtr is easily taken down by Vihyungrang, but then she actually supplies Surtr with mana, and the table's turned.
* LightningBruiser: Surtr is strong enough to defeat most of East's foes, fast enough to surprise the reflexes of an A class WH, and hard enough that most attacks either bounce off or shatter completely against his skin. All without being supplied mana. When he ''is'' [[OhCrap supplied with mana though...]]
* LittleMissBadass
* MysteriousInformant: After her initial skirmish with Tasha she informs him of where he can find sister Aria.
* NiceHat: Though this trope applies to all witches, East's case is rather special: [[spoiler:her hat is entirely decorative, as she doesn't need a hat to generate mana.]]
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: She once fought Varete to a draw, with Varete suffering at least some visble ClothingDamage. We are talking about the same Varete who has yet to suffer so much as a ''scratch'' from all her other opponents.
* PlayingWithFire: Surtr isn't named after the giant of fire for nothing.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:She's known North for 3000 years.]]
* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. East was the first witch to be introduced and fight Tasha but it's shown in her next encounter with Tasha that her previous battle with him was a [[ILetYouWin mock battle]] and she's '''a lot''' stronger.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Her goal is to be one towards [[BigBad North's]] plans.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: It is pink.

!!North

Another of the Great Witches.
[[hardline]]

* BigBadDuumvirate: With North, but she won't hesitate to kill her if [[LockedOutOfTheLoop she continues to resist revealing her plans to her.]]
* BloodKnight
* TheDividual: Poene, who is her ''Sorella'', is not a supporter; She is more of South's sane personality, in a way (so far she appears only to help South negotiate verbally, as South is not the type to chat).[[note]]That, and the story hasn't told us what a Sorella is supposed to mean.[[/note]]
* EvilRedhead
* MsFanservice
* OmnicidalManiac: And her love for StuffBlowingUp doesn't help. [[spoiler: FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize that mana can cause insanity and she has so much she can barely contain it.]]
* PsychoticSmirk
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Her first act of power was annihilating the ''entire'' South WH center ''singlehandedly''.
* RedBaron: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Inflamed Lord of Madness]].
* UnskilledButStrong: She doesn't know much about magic or use any real spells. It's just that she has so much mana that it spills out and makes everything explode.
* [[WorldsStrongestMan World's Strongest Witch]]: With East depowered, North weakened, and West dead, South is currently considered the strongest witch alive.

!! West

One of the four great witches, not seen in person until chapter 105. [[spoiler: She was killed before the start of the manga, and is Tasha's previous incarnation.]]

[[hardline]]
She is known as the Red Witch to many people, may be evil on the outside but once her powers are drained due to excessive battle, her true emotions begin to show. Mentally fragile because of what she did to innocent people and her family, she thinks there is no place for her to go home to anymore and thus stayed on the Witches side.
[[hardline]]
* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler: Her biological father locked her away and beat her regularly after discovering signs of her becoming a witch. This went on for two years until Tasha's family adopted her.]]
* BeneathTheMask: When her mana starts to run low Aria's true emotions leak out, showing that beneath all the CuteAndPsycho is a girl horrified of the tremendous death and destruction she causes and a desire to go home back to her family.
* BloodKnight: Aria likes slaughtering and a good fight a bit ''too'' much for a girl her age.
--->'''Aria:''' It's been boring until now since everyone's fallen to just one hit from me, but this is good~!
* ClingyJealousGirl: She becomes very aggravated when Halloween reveals how close she and Tasha are.
* CuteAndPsycho: Emphasis on [[AxCrazy psycho]].
* DisappearedDad: Killed by her hands in the past.
* DoomedHometown: When she awakened as a Witch she destroyed her village.
* [[DrunkWithPower Drunk With Magic]]: Her AxCrazy behavior is primarily influenced by the her lack of control towards the corrupting properties of mana.
* {{Hikikomori}}: [[spoiler: Turns out she was this as a child, after she was adopted by the Godspells]].
* LittleMissBadass: This status is firmly cemented when she takes on three A class WH at once and '''kills''' the most powerful WH in existence in her ''prime''.
* MechaMooks: An EliteMook variant. Aria's supporter, Aegis, are independent flying disks that automatically defend and retaliate against anyone who wishes to harm Aria. Each disk has power equivalent to that of an [[OhCrap A Class WH]].
* MundaneUtility: In an omake, Aegis is revealed to have a CD player function as well as an automatic vacuum cleaner mode.
* NotBloodSiblings: [[spoiler:Turns out Tasha and Aria aren't blood related; Tasha's family adopted her after an attack wiped her whole village where she was the sole survivor]].
* Main/SatelliteCharacter: Her characterization is little more than "crazy about Tasha", [[TropesAreNotBad making her wonderfully creepy]].
* RedBaron: The Red Witch.
* TheseHandsHaveKilled; Her own father, Tasha's master and thousands of people, to be exact.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds
* WorfHadTheFlu: She used to have a large amount of her flying supporters until the night she killed Edea Florence, who managed to destroy all but two of them left.
* {{Yandere}}: Towards Tasha. BIG TIME.
--->'''Aria:''' I'll kill and keep killing until my brother gives up~!
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: She could if she wanted to, if [[EvilMentor Varete]] would ever let her.

!!! Varete
[[quoteright:233:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/varete_ch40_449.png]]

A very powerful witch who takes care of Aria.
[[hardline]]
* '''{{Badass}}''': Possibly ''the'' most badass witch in the story so far. It's said she was so powerful it was thought that it took ''two'' [[PersonOfMassDestruction Legendary Witches]] to ''kill'' her, and as evidenced, it didn't work in the long run. She is also notably the only other person other than [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Vihyungrang]] to force East to [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique supply mana]] to her supporter Surtr. Even [[TheArchMage Merlin]] stated that if Varete was to get serious even he would be killed.
** BreakTheBadass: To Tasha. In her first appearance, no less.
** SubmissiveBadass: Made an unknown contract with North in regards to protecting her and educating the growth of Aria. Otherwise, even North pointed out that if she and Neptis were to team up against her they wouldn't stand a chance. Yet.
* TheCaretaker: Of Aria.
* CleavageWindow
* CurbStompBattle: Best to ask who she ''hasn't''. The only opponents shown that can be on par with her are the [[PersonOfMassDestruction Four Great Witches]].
* CynicalMentor: Tasked with educating Aria in the ways of witches, and not at all tolerable with the disgrace Aria brings to her status as a witch or her wishes to go back home.
--->'''Varete:''' What mother would be waiting for the daughter who killed her father?
* TheDreaded: Her very presence manages to bring a reaction of {{MassOhCrap}} to ''every'' opponent. Even [[BloodKnight South]] and [[TheArchmage Merlin]].
* HandHidingSleeves: Varete pairs this trope with DetachedSleeves. They're "High Class Sleeves" mixed with "Loaded Sleeves" in that they tend to add to her [[LadyOfWar regal]] and [[LadyOfBlackMagic elegant]] bearing. While she doesn't hide any weapons in her sleeves, she has the ability to control any and all shadows, including [[http://www.mangareader.net/333-55449-11/witch-hunter/chapter-47.html the ones under her sleeves]], so she's technically storing potential weapons there.
* HotWitch: Without a doubt she's a very dangerous witch but also incredibly sexy.
* IdenticalStranger: She's a PaletteSwap of [[spoiler: the original East.]]
* LivingShadow: Her Supporter, Shadow of The Abyss, is capable of manipulating shadows '''anywhere''' on the battlefield, allowing her to virtually transform it into any form she wants, and hardening it strong enough to cut through limbs like wet paper.
* MysteriousPast: Several signs point out that [[she has some past connection with Tasha and Edea Florence.]]
* NiceHat: She wears a rather large round hate adorned with gold.
* {{Nigh Invulnerability}}: Her Supporter, Shadow Of The Abyss, cannot be hurt or killed and can block Tasha's Mana Gun Desert Eagle Custom, a gun which can fire the force of ''10,000'' mana bullets at once, ''point blank'' with no visible effort.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: She fights East at one point. In the aftermath, the battlefield is totally destroyed.
* SexyBacklessOutfit
* TheStoic: She rarely changes from her deadpan look.
* VillainTeleportation: Via [[CastingAShadow shadows]].

!!! Neptis
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-neptis_ch34_483.png]]

A powerful witch that serves directly under North, Neptis is the Witch of Space of Time that guards North's castle alongside Varete. She is holly loyal to North and shares her hatred for humanity and often clashes with Varete due to her unknown placement of her loyalties and her habit of blatantly defying North's commands for her own personal reasons.
[[hardline]]

* ACupAngst: In her omakes she is mocked by Varete for her chest size and is even the president of the petite breasts club.
* BarrierWarrior: She can create incredibly strong barriers by altering the space and time within her immediate area.
* BerserkButton: Anything that could threaten North will set her off. Mainly due to this reason she's hostile to [[SubmissiveBadass Varete]].
* BigDamnVillains: [[spoiler:Saves Tasha from his HeroicRROD from his activation of [[DeadlyUpgrade Moirai's Confinement]] by stablizing his mana with her own.]]
* MysteriousInformant: [[spoiler:Reveals to Ryuhwan that his master, Edea Florence, isn't dead but isn't necessarily alive either.]]
* NiceHat: It's a blue beret worn sideways.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She has been noted to call Varete "young", indicating that her appearance isn't proportional to her actual age.
* SpaceMaster: With her ability, Severance of Space, she has the ability to section off a portion of land from space and time, putting it entirely under control.
* TimeMaster: She can manipulate time to her liking.
* VillainTeleportation: She can instantly teleport over long distances by placing a crack in space and time and traveling through it and reappearing via a similar crack created at her destination.

A witch hunter, but not in the same sense as WH: He attacks any witch, even the benign ones. He used to be Edea Florence's apprentice like Tasha, and due to this, he also fights with guns and even has a supporter named Halloween who is identical to Tasha's.
[[hardline]]
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: To Tasha. Outclassing him in every combat aspect; speed, power, technique, and synergy with [[NonHumanSidekick Fergus]]. [[spoiler:East takes on task of assigning him to train Tasha to be just as good.

* ArrogantKungFuGuy: He never fails to remind both Tasha and his former enemies of how to not underestimate him or compare him to Tasha since he's in an entirely different league apart from him. [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Tasha begrudgingly can't say anything otherwise]].
* {{Badass}}: He ''completely'' dominates Tasha in their first fight, shreds through teams of B class WH, and is able to [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] ''Aria'', a feat that required Tasha to be backed up by Xing and Tarras, all of which are powerful A class WH in their own right.
* TheComicallySerious: When situations get comical he always keeps a straight face, even when impaling Fergus with a horn to differentiate between him and Halloween he tells him that the horn is a symbol of authority and is meant to make him three times stronger (just by perception).
* CynicalMentor: To [[spoiler:''Tasha'']], by East's request.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: A glimpse of Ryuhwan's past shows his home village being destroyed and him being teleported to safety, but not without witnessing his mother's death in front of him prior to his escaping.

* FantasticRacism: Has a hatred towards witches that stems from Edea's death.
* Main/{{Foil}}: To Tasha.

** GunsAkimbo
* HyperspaceArsenal: His Dimension Gallery Glove, which he uses to bring out his vast arsenal of weaponry.
* MysteriousPast: Who is he? How did he come under the care of Edea Florence? [[OlderThanTheyLook How old is he really?]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: If that 'stopped aging' phrase mean anything. [[spoiler:He's 67 years old because his gloves absorb mana from Witch Hats he stored, giving him the same ability as them to halt his aging.]]
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: After Edea's death, Ryuhwan tasked himself to find and kill the unknown witch that caused her death. His solution? [[InsaneTrollLogic Kill every single witch he comes across, good or evil, and hope one of them was her killer]].
* PowerDyesYourHair: They become white after he releases his [[DeadlyUpgrade Mana Replenish Limiter]].

** He also instructs Sir Gawain to join the WH [[spoiler:in their future invasion of the location of the Four Great Witches simply so they can acquire the tremendous mana within their hats in order for Britain to rise to power. Oh, and if the WH happen to intervene, '''slay them'''.]]
** It is also revealed that after disclosing the location of the Four Great Witches to the WH organization he goes on to [[spoiler:''send messages to each of the remaining Great Witches informing them of the upcoming invasion''.]]

The Great Witches East and North consider him instrumental to their respective plans, as either the savior or destroyer of humanity.

!! Tania Doberg
[[quoteright:233:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tania_character_8301.png]]

The S-Class Administrator of the North and Taras' older sister. She is considerably stronger, able to use Flower of Earth (a much, much bigger one) without a chant, only tapping the ground with her staff. Tania interrupts Tasha's fight with Lancelot and forces him to retreat without much effort. Tasha said he and Taras were a team, which prompted Tania to give him a lollipop. She mistook Tasha as a girl at first.
[[hardline]]
* AbsoluteCleavage: Her outfit gives a nice view of her ample bosom.
* Main/AllThereInTheManual: She's not, in fact, a witch. [[NoExportForYou Extra material]] explains the Doberg family have shamanic powers over spirits. The NiceHat [[GogglesDoNothing just looks nice.]]
* [[AloofBigBrother Aloof Big Sister]]: She acts like she doesn't care about Tarras and invokes utter fear within him with her mere presence but [[HiddenDepths behind closed doors]] it's shown she's very protective of her brother and looks forward to seeing him, so much she forgets about everything around her when he is the only thing on her mind.
* AttentionWhore: Runs in the Doberg family line. When Tasha turned to look at Cooga for a spilt second, she responded by sending Cooga flying with a rock pillar and turning him into a basic smear on the wall meters away, then tells Tasha that ''she'' should never look away from her.
* Main/AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: She's the head of Doberg family for a reason.
* {{Badass}}: As expected of the 3rd strongest S-Class Witch Hunter.
* BigGood: After Edea Florence's death and Vihyungrang's departure for training, she's currently the strongest WH at disposal at the moment.
* [[BigBrotherBully Big Sister Bully]]: If Tarras's complete and utter fear of her wasn't your ''first'' clue then...
--->'''Tania:''' He lost his fear since I haven't seen him in a while. '''He needs to be reeducated.'''
* [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Sister Instinct]]: When asked between saving her brother and saving her entire team in a crisis she unhesitatingly ''always'' chooses saving Tarras.
* Main/BlueBlood: As a member of the Doberg family.
* BoobsOfSteel: Because crushing a steel door with ''one hand'' makes you more than qualified.
* CombatPragmatist: A firm believer that on the battlefield all enemies must be crushed without remorse, even when those like [[InnocentBystander Guinevere]], are not intending to fight at all.
--->'''Tania:''' This is the battlefield. There are only allies and enemies. And enemies... '''are to be thoroughly and brutally trampled on by any means necessary. This is the Doberg's teaching.'''
* TheComicallySerious: When she interacts with her fellow White Class.
* TheDreaded: For Tarras.
* Main/DishingOutDirt: As an Earth Spirit user, she can manipulate the earth and she's even ''more'' skilled than Tarras.
* Main/{{Expy}}: Tania resembles Olivier Armstrong from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''.
* FlatWhat: Her reaction when she learns that Tasha is actually a boy. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Probably also many a reader's reaction to her mistaking him for a girl in the first place.]]
* Main/HypocriticalHeartwarming: Only Tania can insult her younger brother, anyone else that does, well, it's just not a good idea.
* [[KnightTemplarBigBrother Knight Templar Elder Sister]]: See above.
* LadyOfWar: She's capable of incredible destruction at a tap of her staff and great grace when in combat.
* OneeSama: Type 3. She is regarded as such by Tarras but only out of absolute fear of her.
* {{Ojou}}: As the head of the [[BlueBlood Doberg family]].
* PeekABangs: Seems to be a Doberg family trait.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Tarras's strongest techniques can destroy entire villages. Tania's basic attacks are equivalent to that.
* PunchClockHero
--> ''"I am a WH only from 9 AM to 6 PM."''
* RedBaron: Empress of the Land.
* StaffOfAuthority: Not just for show, it also [[SwordCane contains a sword too.]]
* StatuesqueStunner: She's rather tall compared to her subordinates but nonetheless very beautiful.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Her personality tends to shift from hard authoritarian to kind and respectable. Her first interaction with Tasha and Cooga involves [[HypocriticalHeartwarming punishing Cooga for disrespecting Tarras]] and giving Tasha a lollipop upon hearing he is a teammate of her brother.
* ThisCannotBe: Alongside her FlatWhat after learning Tasha is a boy is her line, with a look of absolute shock.
--> ''"Nonsense!!"''

In the past he was forcefully experimented on by his Witch master to gain unimaginable amounts of power but he was able to escape her control. Sometime in the future he joins the WH organization and becomes an S Class WH and has an incident where he battles Tania Doberg and is brutally defeated. D. Arlo is known for his volatile and murderous nature towards witches, both enemy and ally, and must be under heavy surveillance and evacuate any premises he travels upon. The only person who can halt these impulses is the mere presence of fellow S Class WH Tania Doberg.
[[hardline]]
* DropTheHammer: In a past flashback, he has been shown utilizing a hammer in combat.
* FreudianExcuse: His hatred for witches stems from being forcefully experimented upon by his Witch master, which gave him unnatural abilities and left him in a permanent state of madness.
* FantasticRacism: He '''despises''' witches, whether they are ally or enemy, his hatred for witches is so great that he has to exert immense effort not to kill every witch in his vicinity.
* {{Mutants}}: Due to his body modifications he is regarded as one in the WH universe.
* NighInvulnerability: Tania Doberg states that despite emerging as the victor in her battle with him, she was never able to land a killing blow on his hardened body, even with her full strength. Considering that she is amongst one of the strongest WH, even among the S Class, this is quite the amazing feat.
* RedBaron: [[PersonOfMassDestruction Destruction]].
* SubmissiveBadass: As an S Class he is among the strongest WH the organization has to offer but he only takes orders from Tania Doberg, the only WH that has brutally defeated him at his full strength and can halt his murderous impulse for witches.

[[folder:Four Great Witches]]

!!East
[[quoteleft:233:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/east-character_6184.png]]

East is a powerful witch which interferes with the North Witch's plan, though her intentions are unknown. She was once one of the four great witches, the one who governed over death and rebirth.

One of the great 4 witches, she guides Tasha and protects him, urging him to get stronger for her own goals. Her current form is smaller than before, stating she has lost a lot of her power, but unlike most witches she doesn't need a hat to store her mana. She also knew Tasha's teacher and Ryuhwan. She asks Ryuhwan to make a contract with her in exchange for the name of the one who killed his teacher; she also knows Halloween's true identity. She reveals to Vihyungrang how Tasha is needed by both her and North, but views him as a tool and key that has no purpose once used and he'll disappear in the end. This leads to a battle between the two.

Her supporter is the Fiery Earth of Musphelheim's King, Surtr. He's so powerful even Ryuhwan stated he had no chance against it in his released limiter form. He had to be supplied with Mana to fight Vihyungrang, which drastically changed the flow of the battle.
[[hardline]]
* ACupAngst: Tasha is [[WhatAnIdiot the one who points the small breasts out.]] She's not amused.
* AlmightyJanitor: She appears at first as harmless girl. She's actually one of the most powerful characters in the setting.
* BodyDouble: [[spoiler: The East everyone knew was actually her Sorella, Etwal, which looks a lot like Varette]].
* CovertPervert: She insisted on healing, washing and dressing Ryuhwan.
* Main/CuteWitch
* Main/DangerousForbiddenTechnique: Supplying Surtr with mana drains her so bad, she implies she can only do that a few times.
* EvilMentor: To both Tasha and Ryuhwan.
* FlunkyBoss: Her first battle with Tasha involved summoning a numerous amount of golems to assess his strength.
* HealingHands: She can cast healing magic.
* IWasQuiteALooker: A ''very'' unique variant. She used to [[spoiler:look nearly identical to Varete before North and South attacked her. Then again, that was her Sorella, although no one was aware of this fact.]]
* Main/IAmNotLeftHanded: Her Surtr is easily taken down by Vihyungrang, but then she actually supplies Surtr with mana, and the table's turned.
* LightningBruiser: Surtr is strong enough to defeat most of East's foes, fast enough to surprise the reflexes of an A class WH, and hard enough that most attacks either bounce off or shatter completely against his skin. All without being supplied mana. When he ''is'' [[OhCrap supplied with mana though...]]
* LittleMissBadass
* MysteriousInformant: After her initial skirmish with Tasha she informs him of where he can find sister Aria.
* NiceHat: Though this trope applies to all witches, East's case is rather special: [[spoiler:her hat is entirely decorative, as she doesn't need a hat to generate mana.]]
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: She once fought Varete to a draw, with Varete suffering at least some visble ClothingDamage. We are talking about the same Varete who has yet to suffer so much as a ''scratch'' from all her other opponents.
* PlayingWithFire: Surtr isn't named after the giant of fire for nothing.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:She's known North for 3000 years.]]
* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. East was the first witch to be introduced and fight Tasha but it's shown in her next encounter with Tasha that her previous battle with him was a [[ILetYouWin mock battle]] and she's '''a lot''' stronger.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Her goal is to be one towards [[BigBad North's]] plans.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: It is pink.

Another of the Great Witches.
[[hardline]]

* BigBadDuumvirate: With North, but she won't hesitate to kill her if [[LockedOutOfTheLoop she continues to resist revealing her plans to her.]]
* BloodKnight
* TheDividual: Poene, who is her ''Sorella'', is not a supporter; She is more of South's sane personality, in a way (so far she appears only to help South negotiate verbally, as South is not the type to chat).[[note]]That, and the story hasn't told us what a Sorella is supposed to mean.[[/note]]
* EvilRedhead

* OmnicidalManiac: And her love for StuffBlowingUp doesn't help. [[spoiler: FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize that mana can cause insanity and she has so much she can barely contain it.]]
* PsychoticSmirk
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Her first act of power was annihilating the ''entire'' South WH center ''singlehandedly''.
* RedBaron: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Inflamed Lord of Madness]].

[[hardline]]
She is known as the Red Witch to many people, may be evil on the outside but once her powers are drained due to excessive battle, her true emotions begin to show. Mentally fragile because of what she did to innocent people and her family, she thinks there is no place for her to go home to anymore and thus stayed on the Witches side.
[[hardline]]
* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler: Her biological father locked her away and beat her regularly after discovering signs of her becoming a witch. This went on for two years until Tasha's family adopted her.]]
* BeneathTheMask: When her mana starts to run low Aria's true emotions leak out, showing that beneath all the CuteAndPsycho is a girl horrified of the tremendous death and destruction she causes and a desire to go home back to her family.
* BloodKnight: Aria likes slaughtering and a good fight a bit ''too'' much for a girl her age.
--->'''Aria:''' It's been boring until now since everyone's fallen to just one hit from me, but this is good~!
* ClingyJealousGirl: She becomes very aggravated when Halloween reveals how close she and Tasha are.
* CuteAndPsycho: Emphasis on [[AxCrazy psycho]].
* DisappearedDad: Killed by her hands in the past.
* DoomedHometown: When she awakened as a Witch she destroyed her village.
* [[DrunkWithPower Drunk With Magic]]: Her AxCrazy behavior is primarily influenced by the her lack of control towards the corrupting properties of mana.
* {{Hikikomori}}: [[spoiler: Turns out she was this as a child, after she was adopted by the Godspells]].
* LittleMissBadass: This status is firmly cemented when she takes on three A class WH at once and '''kills''' the most powerful WH in existence in her ''prime''.
* MechaMooks: An EliteMook variant. Aria's supporter, Aegis, are independent flying disks that automatically defend and retaliate against anyone who wishes to harm Aria. Each disk has power equivalent to that of an [[OhCrap A Class WH]].
* MundaneUtility: In an omake, Aegis is revealed to have a CD player function as well as an automatic vacuum cleaner mode.
* NotBloodSiblings: [[spoiler:Turns out Tasha and Aria aren't blood related; Tasha's family adopted her after an attack wiped her whole village where she was the sole survivor]].
* Main/SatelliteCharacter: Her characterization is little more than "crazy about Tasha", [[TropesAreNotBad making her wonderfully creepy]].

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds
* WorfHadTheFlu: She used to have a large amount of her flying supporters until the night she killed Edea Florence, who managed to destroy all but two of them left.
* {{Yandere}}: Towards Tasha. BIG TIME.
--->'''Aria:''' I'll kill and keep killing until my brother gives up~!
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: She could if she wanted to, if [[EvilMentor Varete]] would ever let her.

!!! Varete
[[quoteright:233:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/varete_ch40_449.png]]

A very powerful witch who takes care of Aria.
[[hardline]]
* '''{{Badass}}''': Possibly ''the'' most badass witch in the story so far. It's said she was so powerful it was thought that it took ''two'' [[PersonOfMassDestruction Legendary Witches]] to ''kill'' her, and as evidenced, it didn't work in the long run. She is also notably the only other person other than [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Vihyungrang]] to force East to [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique supply mana]] to her supporter Surtr. Even [[TheArchMage Merlin]] stated that if Varete was to get serious even he would be killed.
** BreakTheBadass: To Tasha. In her first appearance, no less.
** SubmissiveBadass: Made an unknown contract with North in regards to protecting her and educating the growth of Aria. Otherwise, even North pointed out that if she and Neptis were to team up against her they wouldn't stand a chance. Yet.
* TheCaretaker: Of Aria.
* CleavageWindow
* CurbStompBattle: Best to ask who she ''hasn't''. The only opponents shown that can be on par with her are the [[PersonOfMassDestruction Four Great Witches]].
* CynicalMentor: Tasked with educating Aria in the ways of witches, and not at all tolerable with the disgrace Aria brings to her status as a witch or her wishes to go back home.
--->'''Varete:''' What mother would be waiting for the daughter who killed her father?
* TheDreaded: Her very presence manages to bring a reaction of {{MassOhCrap}} to ''every'' opponent. Even [[BloodKnight South]] and [[TheArchmage Merlin]].
* HandHidingSleeves: Varete pairs this trope with DetachedSleeves. They're "High Class Sleeves" mixed with "Loaded Sleeves" in that they tend to add to her [[LadyOfWar regal]] and [[LadyOfBlackMagic elegant]] bearing. While she doesn't hide any weapons in her sleeves, she has the ability to control any and all shadows, including [[http://www.mangareader.net/333-55449-11/witch-hunter/chapter-47.html the ones under her sleeves]], so she's technically storing potential weapons there.
* HotWitch: Without a doubt she's a very dangerous witch but also incredibly sexy.
* IdenticalStranger: She's a PaletteSwap of [[spoiler: the original East.]]
* LivingShadow: Her Supporter, Shadow of The Abyss, is capable of manipulating shadows '''anywhere''' on the battlefield, allowing her to virtually transform it into any form she wants, and hardening it strong enough to cut through limbs like wet paper.
* MysteriousPast: Several signs point out that [[she has some past connection with Tasha and Edea Florence.]]
* NiceHat: She wears a rather large round hate adorned with gold.
* {{Nigh Invulnerability}}: Her Supporter, Shadow Of The Abyss, cannot be hurt or killed and can block Tasha's Mana Gun Desert Eagle Custom, a gun which can fire the force of ''10,000'' mana bullets at once, ''point blank'' with no visible effort.
* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: She fights East at one point. In the aftermath, the battlefield is totally destroyed.
* SexyBacklessOutfit
* TheStoic: She rarely changes from her deadpan look.
* VillainTeleportation: Via [[CastingAShadow shadows]].

!!! Neptis
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/250px-neptis_ch34_483.png]]

A powerful witch that serves directly under North, Neptis is the Witch of Space of Time that guards North's castle alongside Varete. She is holly loyal to North and shares her hatred for humanity and often clashes with Varete due to her unknown placement of her loyalties and her habit of blatantly defying North's commands for her own personal reasons.
[[hardline]]

* ACupAngst: In her omakes she is mocked by Varete for her chest size and is even the president of the petite breasts club.
* BarrierWarrior: She can create incredibly strong barriers by altering the space and time within her immediate area.
* BerserkButton: Anything that could threaten North will set her off. Mainly due to this reason she's hostile to [[SubmissiveBadass Varete]].
* BigDamnVillains: [[spoiler:Saves Tasha from his HeroicRROD from his activation of [[DeadlyUpgrade Moirai's Confinement]] by stablizing his mana with her own.]]
* MysteriousInformant: [[spoiler:Reveals to Ryuhwan that his master, Edea Florence, isn't dead but isn't necessarily alive either.]]
* NiceHat: It's a blue beret worn sideways.
* OlderThanTheyLook: She has been noted to call Varete "young", indicating that her appearance isn't proportional to her actual age.
* SpaceMaster: With her ability, Severance of Space, she has the ability to section off a portion of land from space and time, putting it entirely under control.
* TimeMaster: She can manipulate time to her liking.
* VillainTeleportation: She can instantly teleport over long distances by placing a crack in space and time and traveling through it and reappearing via a similar crack created at her destination.

* MegaManning: Her magic gives her the power to replicate her opponent's abilities through mana, which effectively doubles her as a [[DittoFighter Ditto Fighter.]]
** MagikarpPower: Her magic requires a certain amount of time to fully copy one's powers, so sufficiently strong opponents, such as [[AlmightyJanitor Visul]], [[AwesomeButImpractical take longer to copy and a tremendous amount of mana to actually ''perform'' said powers.]]

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/volume_15_1298.png]]

A witch hunter, but not in the same sense as WH: He attacks any witch, even the benign ones. He used to be Edea Florence's apprentice like Tasha, and due to this, he also fights with guns and even has a supporter named Halloween who is identical to Tasha's.
[[hardline]]
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: To Tasha. Outclassing him in every combat aspect; speed, power, technique, and synergy with [[NonHumanSidekick Fergus]]. [[spoiler:East takes on task of assigning him to train Tasha to be just as good. Even after the training he still defeats an enemy who Tasha couldn't beat by showing he's just more experienced in dealing with enemies.]]
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: He never fails to remind both Tasha and his former enemies of how to not underestimate him or compare him to Tasha since he's in an entirely different league apart from him. [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter Tasha begrudgingly can't say anything otherwise]].
* {{Badass}}: He ''completely'' dominates Tasha in their first fight, shreds through teams of B class WH, and is able to [[CurbStompBattle curb stomp]] ''Aria'', a feat that required Tasha to be backed up by Xing and Tarras, all of which are powerful A class WH in their own right.
* TheComicallySerious: When situations get comical he always keeps a straight face, even when impaling Fergus with a horn to differentiate between him and Halloween he tells him that the horn is a symbol of authority and is meant to make him three times stronger (just by perception).
* CynicalMentor: To [[spoiler:''Tasha'']], by East's request.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: A glimpse of Ryuhwan's past shows his home village being destroyed and him being teleported to safety, but not without witnessing his mother's death in front of him prior to his escaping.
* DeadlyUpgrade: Like Tasha's Moirai's Confinement, Ryuhwan can access a powerful, albeit weaker, form by allowing a large amount of mana to enter his body. ''Unlike'' Tasha's though, he can enter this state [[BeyondTheImpossible without going insane]] but can only use it in a limited amount of time before his body [[HeroicRROD rebounds from the strain]].
* FantasticRacism: Has a hatred towards witches that stems from Edea's death.
* Main/{{Foil}}: To Tasha.
* Main/GogglesDoSomethingUnusual: They track mana.
* Main/TheGunslinger: As the first disciple of Edea Florence he is very skilled in the use of guns and has skill far surpassing that of Tasha.
** AbnormalAmmo: Mana bullets.
** BottomlessMagazines: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because he uses rechargeable ''mana'' bullets.
** CoolGuns: His Beretta 92R and Beretta [=M93R=] Auto9 Custom.
** GunFu
** GunKata: Mana Gun Direct Combat Technique: Gun Battle.
** GunsAkimbo
* HyperspaceArsenal: His Dimension Gallery Glove, which he uses to bring out his vast arsenal of weaponry.
* MysteriousPast: Who is he? How did he come under the care of Edea Florence? [[OlderThanTheyLook How old is he really?]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: If that 'stopped aging' phrase mean anything. [[spoiler:He's 67 years old because his gloves absorb mana from Witch Hats he stored, giving him the same ability as them to halt his aging.]]
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: After Edea's death, Ryuhwan tasked himself to find and kill the unknown witch that caused her death. His solution? [[InsaneTrollLogic Kill every single witch he comes across, good or evil, and hope one of them was her killer]].
* PowerDyesYourHair: They become white after he releases his [[DeadlyUpgrade Mana Replenish Limiter]].
* Main/TheRival: To Tasha.

A knight of the Round Table who now works for the witches. Despite this, his loyalty is truly to Guinevere. During his time in the Table, he is the only one who is against Arthur's decision on arresting Guinevere because she's a witch. His loyalty to Guinevere extends to her daughter, Mordred.
[[hardline]]

* {{Badass}}: One of the Knights of the Round Table, and strong enough that even [[BloodKnight South]] tolerates his presence despite her dislike of humans. In fact, he is the third antagonist to hand Tasha [[CurbStompBattle a thorough defeat]] in their fight in Britain.
* BerserkButton: Harming Guinevere or hindering him in his attempts to unite Mordred and Guinevere will result in losing limbs. [[spoiler:[[AnArmAndALeg Tasha can attest to this fact.]]]]

* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type III.]] He bears no ill will towards any member of the WH and only wishes for the return of Mordred to the Kingdom of Britain so that they may regain their former glory. That being said his methods to attain his goal are extremely pragmatic to say the least.
* {{Badass}}: Being on par with the [[PersonOfMassDestruction Four Great Witches]] ranks him as one.
** BadassBoast: Delivers an epic one to [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness The Central Council of the WH]] during their meeting in Britain.
--->'''Merlin:''' I am exactly 586 years old. I was born on the day the Kingdom of Britain was founded. Infiltrating an organization that hasn't been around for even a century is a walk in the park for me.

* FieldPowerEffect: Merlin can manipulate a magic circle the size of ''Britain'', something noted that not even the most highest ranked witches could do.
** AntiMagic: He can disrupt mana flow in this magic circle, preventing witches to use their supporters' powers.
** PowerCopying: He can also use this circle to use the magic of '''any witch''' within his magic circle, making him a dangerous enemy to even the [[PersonOfMassDestruction The Four Great Witches]].
** SinisterSurveillance: He can also eavesdrop on '''anyone''' in Britain.
* FriendlyEnemy: To both the WH organization and the Four Great Witches.
* HimeCut: To further add to his [[DudeLooksLikeALady disconcerting]] appearance.
* ManipulativeBastard: Offers to reveal the location of [[PersonOfMassDestruction The Four Great Witches]] in exchange for the severance of Tasha's contract with Halloween knowing full well it would be agreed upon and, being a WH, Tasha cannot refuse a direct order from Central.
** He also instructs Sir Gawain to join the WH [[spoiler:in their future invasion of the location of the Four Great Witches simply so they can acquire the tremendous mana within their hats in order for Britain to rise to power. Oh, and if the WH happen to intervene, '''slay them'''.]]
** It is also revealed that after disclosing the location of the Four Great Witches to the WH organization he goes on to [[spoiler:''send messages to each of the remaining Great Witches informing them of the upcoming invasion''.]]
* NervesOfSteel: He is never seen losing his cool, even when faced up against extremely deadly foes.
* OddFriendship: He implies that he knows [[spoiler:East well enough]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: ''A lot'' older.
* ProperLady: Genderflipped example though he looks the straight part well enough. Graceful, polite, and beautiful with an air of tranquility. Makes [[UnsettlingGenderReveal the reveal]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny all the more hilarious.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: 586 years old to be exact.
* RedBaron: TheArchmage.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: To Sir Gawain.
--> '''Merlin:''' Sir Gawain, You have no need to shoulder such burdens because you are already... '''no longer a knight'''.
* StepfordSmiler: Smiles constantly to convey an air of comradery and confidence but more [[{{GenreSavvy}} perceptive]] people can tell that this is a facade.
