Dedicatus545: The Dedicated Lamb Protects the Knowledge of the Strong

Voiced by: Yuka Iguchi (Japanese) and Monica Rial (English)

Eponymous character of A Certain Magical Index and main female magic-oriented protagonist. Index was a member of Necessarius, with 103,000 grimoires hardwired onto her memory due to both her Photographic Memory and immunity to their maddening influence due to lacking the mana to power them. She's also known for her temper and attitude unbecoming of a nun, such as freeloading and gluttony. Much of her background is currently unknown due to periodic memory washes upon her.


Provides examples of:

  • Accidental Kiss: While trying to bite Touma, Index misses and kisses his cheek.
  • A-Cup Angst: So long as you don't say it to her face, although she later "improves", as an illustration for Volume 16 shows.
  • Artifact of Doom: Has 103,000 grimoires full of forbidden spells hardwired into her brain.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: When using the grimoires' information, such as in Season 1 Episode 23, where she managed to hold her own against a golem with a few quick phrases and safety pins. Had Touma not knocked out the caster, she would have won. All this to a Theme Music Power-Up, too. And later in the novels, while using her Spell Intercept, she hijacks Fuze=Kazakiri, canceling it and saving Last Order in the process during the attack by Vento of the Front in Academy City.
  • Badass Adorable Bookworm: Stood up against a golem and many sorcerers using just mental codes.
  • Batman in My Basement: For a while, Touma had her keep a low profile in his apartment to prevent her from being arrested or deported for not being an Academy City citizen. Once she gains citizenship, this is no longer an issue.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Touma.
  • Berserk Button: Denying her access to food and mentioning her horizontally challenged figure.
  • Best Friend Manual: Had to explain Touma's motivations and thought process to several girls so far and she was the only human to have him figured out without putting him on a pedestal out until Thor appeared. Touma long since lost the ability to hide anything before her even on phone.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Even Stiyl had to run from Index while on a rampage upon discovering Touma's memory loss.
  • Big Eater: To the point that she drains Touma's wallet with almost every meal. When Maika cooked for her, Index claimed it only filled one third of her stomach.
  • Blood Magic: In order to heal herself, she used her blood as a catalyst for a healing spell.
  • Blush Sticker
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: After the events of Volume 18, Index is this until the end of Volume 22. Fiamma of the Right gains control over John's Pen.
  • Brown Note: When she uses "Spell Intercept Song" or "Sheol Fear".
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Subverted, as of the end Episode 6 when she tearfully tells Touma she loves him. Too bad about the memory loss though...
  • Catchphrase: The way she exclaims "Touma!" when she's annoyed followed by a "chomp" sound effect is pretty much her catchphrase it happens so often.
  • Cat Smile: Practically her default smile.
  • Character Magnetic Team: With Touma.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Remember those safety pins that keep her habit together after Touma accidentally tore them off with his touch? Well, she used them against Sherry's summoned Golem in Season 1 Episode 23.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Hates it when she sees Touma hanging out with other girls, particularly Mikoto.
  • Clothing Damage: Hilarity Ensues.
  • Code Name: Her magic name, "Dedicatus545"
  • Cool Sword: The Sword of God Frey, which can fight on its own.
  • Cosplay: Seen in Season 1 Episode 22 cosplaying as "Magical Powered Kanamin".
  • Creepy Monotone: In John's Pen mode.
  • Cry Cute/Tender Tears: Her standard reaction every time Touma teases her, as well as after dreading Touma's memory loss (which he did).
  • Cute Little Fangs: Often shown when she's about to bite Touma.
  • Demoted to Extra: For an eponymous character, her screen-time and importance in many arcs of the series is pretty limited.
  • "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: Yuka Iguchi sings the Railgun ending themes and a theme from the Miracle of Endymion movie.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: Index's "Walking Church" robe provides her with amazing defenses... which Touma inadvertently destroys in Season 1 Episode 1 to prove the existence of "Imagine Breaker". Index patches it back together, but it's lost its powers. This comes back a few times, as the few people who do directly attack her still believe that her enchantment is intact, meaning attacks she could easily shrug can become fatal. This is especially bad, considering that most people want Index for her knowledge, and killing her isn't exactly what they want to happen.
  • Fanservice Pack
    "A tub of Musashino Milk a day keeps the flat chest away!!"
  • Fish out of Water: She has no idea how the modern world works and is clueless about electronics.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Her "Dragon's Breath" and "Eli Eli Lama Sabachtani" spells.
  • Genki Girl
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When she's in John's Pen mode.
  • Going Commando: As lampshaded in the manga after Touma accidentally destroys her Walking Church.
    Touma: "So... the English way of wearing a robe is such that the below (body) is not covered by any other clothes besides the robe itself. I didn't know that!"
  • Heroic Safe Mode: John's Pen mode, installed by the Archbishop on her as an insurance to keep the Index of Prohibited books under control.
  • Holding Back the Phlebotinum: Index has complete knowledge of all magic, but she can also use them as well. To make sure she doesn't go crazy under their influence, she has her memories erased yearly and is told that she can't use magic, though this is just a lie to keep her controlled. After Touma saves her, she is now free to use her spells as she pleases.
  • Honor Before Reason: In several arcs, she insists that taking on enemy mages is her responsibility and not Touma's, ignoring Touma's argument that she isn't really suited to fighting while he obviously is.
  • Hypocritical Humor: She says she's a religious nun in training, but does things unbecoming of her station, such as freeloading, eating a lot, petty thievery, etc.
  • Innocent Cohabitation: Living with Touma.
  • Kawaiiko
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Keeps a little Cute Kitten named Sphinx.
  • Living MacGuffin: Essentially her role in the entire series, although it's not a major source of conflict until Volume 13, when Fiamma intended to capture her and use her knowledge to study Touma's Imagine Breaker and how to use it with The Holy Right.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Touma usually leaves her at home while he has his adventures. She doesn't even know half of Touma's acquaintances, and thinks Accelerator is just a kind stranger who gave her food once.
  • Luminescent Blush: Her whole body.
  • Magic Music: Can perform some spells by singing.
  • Mission Control/Ms. Exposition: As she contains the Index Librorum Prohibitorum, she's usually the one to explain what to do when Touma is confronted with magical items.
  • Naughty Nuns: More like Freeloader Nun.
  • Never Got to Say Goodbye: To Touma in the beginning of the series, and again after his apparent "death" in Volume 22.
  • Nuns Are Funny
  • Nun Too Holy
  • Older Than She Looks: Index is around 14-15 years old, meaning that she could actually be older than Mikoto.
  • Omniscient Database: A human version. However, her database has no references to Imagine Breaker; it makes no sense from a magical perspective.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Averted. Her legal name is "Index Librorum Prohibitorum". Her Academy City ID and passport both say as much.
  • Out of Focus
  • Person of Mass Destruction: There's a reason she had her memories periodically erased.
  • Photographic Memory: It's why she's the Index.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Red ones, to be precise.
  • Power Limiter: The "collar" and the remote control spiritual item.
  • Power Makes Your Voice Deep: Monica Rial makes good use of her broad vocal range. She uses her normal voice most of the time, but uses her "adult" one for John's Pen Mode.
  • Pretentious Latin Motto: "The devoted lamb protects the knowledge of the strong".
  • Pretty Freeloader: When Touma brings it up, she says that she absolutely refuses to help with the housework. Her only "job" is to eat.
  • Rapunzel Hair: It falls past her knees.
  • Running Gag:
    1. She tends to bite Touma whenever he somehow pisses her off.
    2. She has a large appetite, much to the chagrin of those who pay for her food, like Accelerator.
    3. She tends to get hit by Touma whenever she's changing clothes or taking a bath. Even Index herself lampshades during the Daihaseisai:
    Index: "Touma?! How many times has it been?!"
    Touma: "Wahhh! Im really sorry! Please don't bite me again!"
  • Shana Clone: A mild example, but it's there nonetheless — she's petite, slightly tsundere for Touma, and can become mildly domineering personality whenever her Berserk Button(s) are pressed.
  • She's Got Legs
  • Sleepwalking: Tends to attack Touma while she is asleep, which is why he sleeps in the bathtub.
  • Spanner in the Works: A stray blast from her destroyed the Tree Diagram satellite, ruining Mikoto's plans to hack into it and causing a lot of problems down the road.
  • Teen Genius: Very capable when it comes to magic.
  • Tranquil Fury: When she finds out the truth about Touma from Fiamma.
  • Tsundere: Type B, especially when it concerns Touma.
  • Wetware Body: Index's body is possessed by an AI of sorts some of the time. It's pretty competent, really.
  • Yandere: When she finds out about Touma's memory loss, she snaps into John's Pen mode.
  • You Are Worth Hell: Touma says he's not stupid enough to condemn himself to Hell for anyone, but that she is worth coming to Hell to pull her out.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has silvery-blue hair.

    Archbishop Laura Stuart 

Archbishop Laura Stuart

Voiced by: Ayako Kawasumi (JP)

Laura Stuart is the Archbishop of Necessarius and also the English Anglican Church. Despite being the Archbishop, she looks like an eighteen-year-old girl with long blonde hair that's 2.5 times her height; other than that, few details about her are known.
  • Ambiguously Evil: She's done just as many evil deeds as she has good ones. It's hard to say whether she's a good person, a bad one or simply a neutral one.
    Stiyl: "No one is better than her in manipulating human feelings, rationality, interests, ethics, and necessary values. The hidden dragon among sorcerers, shes somehow able to get to the top, and its not done cheaply."
  • Bathing Beauty: Her favorite pastime is bathing, for which she has a ridiculous number of bathtubs, all located in the same room.
  • Batman Gambit: She knows very well which strings she should pull to control her subordinates.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She may look like a sweet, innocent teenager but people have to remember that she's the Archbishop of Necessarius. She's not afraid to use the powers bestowed upon her to eliminate her enemies in whatever means, all while she's smiling at you.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite how childishly she acts, there's a reason she's the Archbishop.
  • The Chessmaster: She's capable of regularly matching wits with and sometimes even out-maneuver Aleister Crowley. If that doesn't qualify you nothing will.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Ditzy, somewhat absentminded, and goofy. They doesn't stop her from being an extraordinarily cunning bitch.
  • Dissonant Serenity
  • Manipulative Bitch: How magnificent is she? Let's start with the Book of Law incident.note 
    • As Stiyl eloquently describes it: "...You bitch."
  • My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels: See Running Gag.
  • Odd Friendship: With Queen Elizard.
  • Older than They Look: Her appearance hasn't changed that much since twenty years ago.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is 2.5 times her own height. It is in several loops so that it doesn't touch the ground.
  • Running Gag: Is only shown once in the anime, but in the novels, Laura would often have her serious conversations derailed by the person in question awkwardly asking her why her Japanese sounds so weird (all thanks to Tsuchimikado teaching her Japanese). In a very awkward moment, Aleister even offered to send a Japanese teacher to help her out.
    Stiyl: "...dont tell me you used such a stupid way of speaking to negotiate with the representatives from Academy City."
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Will often jump into a bathtub while other people are in the room. Stiyl has gotten used to it.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: How she escapes being tied up in Windsor Castle.
  • Telepathy: She possesses charms which facilitate this effect.

    Stiyl Magnus 

Stiyl Magnus

Fortis931 — I Prove Why My Name is the Strongest Here

Voiced by: Kissho Taniyama (JP), Robert McCollum (EN)

A sorcerer from Necessarius. His sorcery name is Fortis931. Hes an extremely heavy smoker, and claims a world without nicotine would be hell. He specializes in using runes to invoke his power over fire. He has a short temper but is actually very kind, as he cares about Index very much and used to travel around the world by her side when she copied the original grimoires into her mind. His failure to save her life without taking away her memories is his greatest regret.
  • Barcode Tattoo: Under the right eye.
  • Badass Longcoat
  • Bodyguard Crush: To Index.
  • Code Name: Magic Name: Fortis931
  • Demoted to Extra: Was originally one of the most active characters in the series, but hasn't done much since Volume 10.
  • Determinator
  • Glass Cannon: With his flame spells and summoning he can wreck some serious damage. In spite of this, he gets taken down pretty easily and finds himself at a disadvantage in physical confrontations.
  • Flaming Sword: Both he and Innocentius wield one made of pure flames.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Says the only reason why he tolerates Touma is because Index loves him.
  • Japanese Pronouns: Unusually for a coarse and cynical chain-smoking badass, he uses the polite masculine pronoun "Boku" as opposed to the coarse masculine "Ore" that other men of his archetype would typically use. Of course, he's actually fourteen years old.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Playing with Fire: His magic is fire based. His most iconic spell summons a fire demon called Innocentius composed of 3000C flames.
  • Post-Modern Magik: Mass produces the runes needed for his spells with a photocopier. He later laminates his rune cards so that they can't be washed away with water.
  • Pretentious Latin Motto: "I prove why my name is the strongest here".
  • Required Secondary Powers: While he's seemingly immune to his own fire, he's not immune to fires he didn't create.
  • Ship Tease: With Komoe-sensei of all people in the SP volume.
  • Smoking Is Cool: He even says a world without nicotine would be hell.
  • Squishy Wizard: Touma knocks him out with a single punch on numerous occasions.
  • Teen Genius: He appears to be very knowledgeable about magic in general, is quite a powerful sorcerer for his age, and despite being born in England, has a firm grasp on the Japanese language. That being said, he's rather ignorant about science and other, more mundane subjects.
  • The Worf Effect: Moreso in the novels and side stories than in the anime, but still very prominent.
  • Tsundere: He says this to Touma: "It's not like I want to be friends with you." While peeling him an apple.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Despite constant insistence that he doesn't like Touma, they do seem to hang out a lot.
  • We Have Ways of Making You Talk: Threatens Biagio and Ridovia with this while in the London Tower's prison chambers.
  • Younger than They Look: You wouldn't know from his height, mannerisms or smoking habit, but he's only fourteen. In other words, Stiyl is actually younger than Touma and around the same age as Index.

    Kaori Kanzaki 

Kaori Kanzaki

Salvare000 — Be the Salvation of Those Who Cannot Be Saved

Voiced by: Shizuka Ito (JP), Morgan Garrett (EN)

An eighteen-year-old sorcerer from Necessarius. Unlike her partner Stiyl, she uses magic to magically strengthen her body. Her sorcery name is Salvare000. She uses a two-meter-long nodachi called "Seven Heavens Seven Swords" as her weapon, and she has a special attack called Nanasen (Seven Flashes) that uses her sword and thin steel wires. Not only is Kaori a skilled swordswoman, but shes a Catholic Saint possessing the "Stigma", the ability to call upon God's power.

    Sherry Cromwell 

Sherry Cromwell

Intimus115 — I Offer Everything to My Lost Friend

Voiced by: Akeno Watanabe (JP), Stephanie Young (EN)

Her sorcery name is Intimus115, "Everything I offer to my lost friend". A member of Necessarius and a talented "Decoder", she has dark skin and wears a black Gothic Lolita dress. Her blonde hair is unkempt and according to Tsuchimikado, she has the silhouette of a lion. She is a master of Kabbalah Statue art and utilizes oil pastel or chalk to draw a spell to summon a golem Sherry refers to as "Ellis".
  • Ambiguously Jewish: The golem is from a Jewish legend, and her spell circles resemble the Star of David.
  • Black Bra And Panties: Her casual wear is a set of these under a transparent negligee.
  • Code Name: Magic name: Intimus115
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Her parents were a mixed-raced couple, which explains her looks.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: In addition to forming her golem out of the surrounding dirt, stone, and concrete, she can control those materials and is at her most powerful underground.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Her standard outfit.
  • Golem: Ellis
  • Heel-Face Turn: After Touma defeats her and foils her plan to start a war, she rejoins Necessarius.
  • Informed Flaw: Described as both "grimy" and "slovenly" by Touma in the narration, but in the anime this only really comes across with her hair.
  • Messy Hair: Her hair sticks up in all directions and generally looks like she just went through a wind tunnel. The only exception so far is an illustration of a young Sherry with Girlish Pigtails.
  • Mundane Utility: She will sometimes use her golem for menial tasks like hand washing clothes.
  • Odd Friendship: With Orsola Aquinas.
  • Pretentious Latin Motto: "I offer everything to my lost friend".
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: When her best friend, an esper named Ellis Warrior was killed due to a joint experiment between Academy City and Necessarius to create the first esper/mage hybrid, she blames both sides and tries to ignite a war between the two to separate both sides forever.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Ultimately want to prevent another tragedy like what happened to her friend, and at the end of her arc Toma realizes that she really wanted someone to stop her.

Tsuchimikado Motoharu

Fallere825 — The Backstabbing Blade

    Theodosia Electra 
A member of Necessarius who debuts in the SP Volume. She seemingly turns traitor to protect Patricia Birdway, running afoul of Stiyl Magnus, but the true enemy, Richard Brave, appears and she is exonerated.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: Channeling her power into matches looks cool, but they tend to go out at inopportune times.
  • Explaining Your Power to the Enemy: Subverted. She claims her power is based on The Little Match Girl, but it is really based on Norse Mythology. Stiyl nonetheless figures it out and beats her.
  • Faking the Dead: Richard Brave's Flaming Sword typically annihilates anything it burns, so she simply dodged the attack and hid, leaving Richard to assume she was killed.
  • Mama Bear: She would do anything to protect Patricia. She also has four sons and eight daughters whom she cares for dearly.
  • Motor Mouth: She just can't shut up, which really ticks Stiyl off.
  • Multicolored Hair: Blonde and silver. It is mentioned that this is because her hair is damaged, possibly from bleaching.
  • Rule of Symbolism: Her main magic is based on Skrnir's Staff, which channels flames with a variety of effects. She usually uses these with matches to maintain the illusion that she is working with The Little Match Girl. She also uses The Drill of Rati (in powdered form to make it easier to carry), Odin's tool that allows one to sneak into and escape places.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right: She received orders to capture Patricia Birdway, a "traitor" to the Church of England. Realizing Patricia is an innocent girl with no knowledge of magic, she decided to protect her instead. It was the right call, as the order was forged by Richard Brave.

    Saiji Tatemiya 

Saiji Tatemiya

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (Japanese)

Substitute Supreme Pontiff of the Amakusa Catholics, a secretive Japanese religious sect combining Christian worship with traditional rituals and practices. Much like a Certain Protagonist, he saves people for the sake of saving them, without so much as an ulterior motive in mind. A capable leader, he strives to rebuild the group so that Kaori, who left and rejected the position of Pontiff in order to protect them from further harm stemming from her position as a Saint, would feel welcome to rejoin them some day.
  • Anime Hair
  • Badass
  • BFS/Cool Sword: His signature weapon is a 180 cm long zweihnder with an elaborate basket-hilt guard and a wavy blade in the shape of a stylized flame, also known as a flammenschwert.
  • Big Good: For the Amakusa Catholics.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: He's not above making Kaori and Itsuwa wear embarrassing costumes for the hell of it.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Like Touma, he says he doesn't need a reason to save someone.
  • Decoy Leader: Leads the Amakusa Catholics in Kaori's place until she returned to their fold.
  • Delinquents: The Amakusa as a whole resemble a street gang.
  • Expy: He looks like either Mugen or Spike Spiegel.
  • Freaky Fashion, Mild Mind: His apparel is entirely composed of Rummage Sale Reject items that contribute to a somewhat menacing appearance. This belies the fact that he's one of the nicest and most honest characters in the series.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Averted by his use of a European two-handed sword, although it's hard to judge just how good his swordsmanship really is.
  • Magic Knight
  • Number Two: To Kaori.
  • Paper Master: True to the Amakusa's roots in Onmyodo.
  • Religious Bruiser
  • Shipper on Deck: Like the rest of his comrades, he encourages Itsuwa and Touma. Frustrated by the lack of progress in their relationship, he kicked a soccer ball into the back of Touma's head so he would fall directly into Itsuwa's cleavage.
  • Street Samurai: In spite of their decision to join up with the Church Militant branch of the Anglican Church, the members of the Amakusa are more loyal to each other than their parent organization. They're also rather more likely to help others out of compassion, and are very much into using edged weaponry as opposed to overt displays of magic or firearms.
  • Symbol Motif Clothing: He wears a shirt with a slanted red cross on it. It can be taken to represent either a Cross of St. George (a symbol commonly associated with the country and Church of England) or a saltire, in particular the Saltire of St. Patrick (which in turn is associated with the predominantly Catholic country/territory of Ireland). Curiously enough, he wore the same shirt when the Amakusas were still considered an independent Roman-Catholic offshoot.

    Itsuwa 

Itsuwa

Voiced by: Ai Kayano (Japanese)

A sixteen-year old girl and an active fighter for the Amakusa Catholics. Her weapon is a Friulian Spear that can be disassembled and reassembled for purposes of stealth. She has romantic feelings towards Touma, but due to her shyness was unable to convey them. She also tends to be jealous of any other girl close to him, including her former Supreme Pontiff Kaori.

    Queen Elizard 

Queen Elizard

The Queen of England, and mother to the three princesses. She possesses the sword Curtana Second, a replica of the Curtana Original, which is said to grant the wielder the same power as that of the Archangel Michael so long as they're within the boundaries of England.

    Princess Rimea 

Princess Rimea

Eldest daughter of Queen Elizard. She has a very cautious and distrusting personality. She is a natural blonde like her sisters, but dyes her hair black. Among the three princesses, her trait is "intelligence".
  • Crazy-Prepared: Her distrust and paranoia drives her to make several precautions, such as keeping a pet just to test for poison in her food.
  • Expy: Artist notes indicate that her design was slightly based on Nanao Ise.
  • High-Class Glass: She wears a monocle in order to see properly.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She declares Carissa's motive at the exact moment when the knights of England and Necessarius have lost morale from Curtana Original, leading the knights to a Heel-Face Turn.

    Princess Carissa 

Princess Carissa

Second daughter of Queen Elizard. Among the three princesses, her trait is "military affairs".
  • Action Girl: When she gets her hands on Curtana Original.
  • Badass Princess: She holds off Kanzaki, William Orville, and the Knight Leader for a short time. Granted, she could only defend and would be overtaken soon, but each of those people can annihilate entire armies by themselves without any trouble.
  • Big Bad: Of Volumes 17 and 18.
  • Blood Knight: To put it mildly, she likes conflict.
  • Boobs of Steel
  • Designated Girl Fight: With the Maiden of Versailles.
  • Easily Forgiven: For actual treason, no less.
  • Enemy Mine: Teams up with the Maiden of Versailles against Archangel Gabriel.
  • Expy: Artist notes indicate that her design was slightly based on Debora Briscoletti.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: The shard of Curtana Second that she possesses is destroyed... then she reveals that she has ten more shards from the sword.
  • Lady in Red: Wears a red leather dress.
  • Lady of War
  • Laser Blade: The shards of Curtana Second.
  • Made of Iron: She No Sells an air raid and gets off from what can only be described as a magic bomb with only Clothing Damage and some bleeding. Touma even lampshades it by comparing her to a boss with tons of HP.
  • Rebellious Princess: Literally.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Her aspect is "military affairs", after all. And if conducting a coup d'etat against your own mother counts as "something"...
  • Silent Scapegoat/Dark Messiah/Zero Approval Gambit: Her plan is to slaughter the pacifistic monarchy and all of England's enemies then bear the stain of it by becoming the only person who wielded Curtana Original for that purpose. If a new monarchy deposes her from the throne, all of England's enemies would've been eliminated by then.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Curtana Original gives her incredible power by being able to control Telesma, but she's basically powerless without it.
    • This is ultimately averted as Knight Leader actually points out that she's skilled enough she could use all of the abilities that he has to use one at a time at once. During the final battle of the coup, she wields the Curtana original in such an ingeniously strategic manner that she manages to hold off Touma and the entire assembled forces of the Anglican Church even after they've been joined by the Knights and even manages to fend off the combined forces of Knight Leader, Kanzaki and William Orville. It ultimately takes Queen Elizard breaking up Curtana's power into the people of England, a spell intercept from Index and a flying punch from Touma to take her down.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Her coup fit right into Fiamma of the Right's hands, because it allowed him to get the remote to control Index unimpeded. Not that anyone actually had the power to stop him if they wanted to, but the point still stands: Carissa's actions helped Fiamma far more than they helped Carissa.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: Justified since her dress doesn't have pockets. The Maiden of Versailles is not amused.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She believes the best way to protect England is to conduct a coup d'etat and kill the former royal family using Curtana Original.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: What she thinks will happen to England should Academy City defeat the Roman Catholic Church.

    Princess Villian 

Princess Villian

Third daughter of Queen Elizard. She possesses the least power among the three princesses, but she holds the most influence over the people of England. Among the three princesses, her trait is "virtue".

    Knight Leader 

Knight Leader

The leader of the Knights of England. He seems to want Kaori Kanzaki to join the Knights of England. He is also a good friend of William Orville.
  • Badass: When you can match William Orville blow-for-blow and almost come out on top, you fully deserve the title.
    • Granted, at that point Orville had lost his powers as a member of Gods Right Seat and the Knight Leader was blessed by Curtana Original. Had those factors not been in play, he wouldve gotten curbstomped.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: After being blessed by Curtana Original, he effortlessly defeats Kanzaki without drawing his sword.
  • The Dragon: To Carissa after she begins her coup.
  • Everyone Calls Him Barkeep
  • Heel-Face Turn: After realizing that there's a better way to resolve England's problems than a coup d' etat.
  • The Lancer: To the Queen.
  • Magic Knight
  • No Sell: Thororm's Defense Formula, which is similar to Terra of the Left's Execution of the Light, except it's only set to reduce the weapon's effectiveness to zero. Its weakness is that he has to know what the opposing weapon is. He was forced to retreat from a Macross Missile Massacre because the missiles were all different and he could have made a mistake in identifying them. William Orville finally defeats him with a surprise dart. Also, Thororm's Defense Formula only works on weapons, and as proof his loyalty, it has no effect on attacks from British Royalty's bloodline. This causes an unintentional over-sight because King William I was originally a French noble, thus rendering members of his bloodline immune as well, including The Maiden of Versailles and consequently, Elizalina.
  • No Name Given
  • Only Sane Man: Dealing with the Queen's and her daughters' antics can be quite... tiresome for him.
  • Pet the Dog: Actively tried to change the rules to allow women to join the knights.
  • Public Domain Artifact/Cool Sword: Hrunting, the sword which Beowulf used to kill Grendel's mother.
    • Achilles' Heel: Subverted. William Orville tries to make use of the fact that each spell can only be active one at a time, but is still outclassed by it.
    • Awesomeness by Analysis: He reconstructed the laws behind the sword's creation which allowed him to create entirely new spells based on the new laws.
