* CompleteMonster: [[AxCrazy Friday Monday]] is the [[BigBad founder and leader]] of [[TheSyndicate the Enfant organization]] and [[RealityWarper one of the few Gift users]]. Believing that [[StrawNihilist morality is nothing more than human's mask to hide its desire for war]], Monday actively tries [[ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil to bring out their "true nature"]]. In 1999, with the power of the [[MacGuffin Holy Books]] and the Gift, he initiated a ritual to brainwash the entire humanity to start global warfare. It caused a nearby plane to crash, leaving only two survivors. After his attempt was foiled by Richard Burton, Monday retaliated by [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mind-controlling him into trying to murder]] [[WouldHurtAChild Margaret, his own daughter]], who was forced to kill him. As Gazth-Sonika was the only country affected by the ritual, Friday Monday is the one who started the civil-war and prolonged it for twelve years through all kinds of means—such as political corruption, [[HeKnowsTooMuch murder]], and forced identity amnesia, among others--making him responsible for all the deaths that happened in the series. Finally, after he eventually found the two Holy Books he lost, Monday kidnapped and mind-controlled Margaret into help him to get in the Sanctuary to finish the ritual he started twelve years ago. A nihilisitc, [[KnightTemplar self-righteous]] DiabolicalMastermind, Friday Monday is the only character who has never shown a single redeeming quality.

** When Elenore reveals that she's [[spoiler: accompanying Margaret to Gazth-Sonika]] in Episode 17, Margaret smiles and says "I love you." to Elenore. The word Margaret uses here is ''daisuki'' which is a very strong word in Japanese for liking someone in that way.

** Madlax sees herself as the PrinceCharming that's supposed to protect the Princess (who's Vanessa in this case) during Episode 12.

* FridgeBrilliance: The ridiculous name "Friday Monday" may in fact be a Creator/GKChesterton [[Trivia/{{Madlax}} reference]].

* TearJerker: Many, notably the fate of poor [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Ann Moray]], who dies in the only episode in which she appears, after being mind-controlled into killing her father. The fact that it's heavily implied that Margaret was in love with her does not help. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11hSKRWY0bs Nor does the music.]]
** Pretty much every character death qualifies, but a special mention has to go to [[spoiler: Elenore who has probably the biggest WhamLine in the series when she explains why she's so devoted to Margaret and dies shortly afterwards.]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Elenore:''' Because Miss Margaret, you are my... family.]]
