Carrossea Doon a.k.a Poupee

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese), Vic Mignogna (English)

Carrossea is officially an independent contractor working for Bookwald Industries, although, in reality, he is one of Enfant's best operatives and the right-hand man of Friday Monday himself.

  • Creepy Child: As Poupee.
  • Dead All Along: He only was alive due to his Gift and his unyielding wish to protect Margaret. Once he realizes this... he fades away out of existence.
  • The Dragon: To Friday Monday.
  • Dragon with an Agenda
  • Gainax Ending: His fate and that of Vanessa and Elenore have been the cause of some intense debates over if Margaret resurrected him or not.
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: Sort-of, to Margaret. Poupee was another survivor of the plane crash, fell for Margaret, vowed to protect her... and died Taking the Bullet for her. His Gift kicked in and he sort-of lived on. Then, Friday took the amnesiac kid in and named him Carrossea, with his Poupee self remaining stuck at the Sanctuary.
