Balbadd is part of the Northern Oasis Countries and is located near the seas, making Balbadd a great trading nation as it was known to trade with countries such as Sindria and the Western Parthevia. Its Capital is Balbadd City.
The Fog Troupe
A band of thieves within Balbadd, led by Alibaba, Cassim, Hassan, and Zaynab. They steal from the rich and give to the poor, so they are loved by the populace and start to become a huge problem to the Balbadd nobility.
Alibaba's old friend who was raised alongside him by Alibaba's mother. After years of living in the slums and the death of his little sister, he becomes fed up with the government and persuades Alibaba to team up with him against the king when the two reunite during the six month time skip.
Fond Memories That Could Have Been: As his Rukh returns to normal, since he realized the error of his ways, he starts to imagine how his and Alibaba's lives could have been if they had been able to talk to each other and mend their relationship sooner.
Start of Darkness: His crapsack childhood, in which he grew up with an abusive father, his kind adoptive mother who saved him from said father ended up dying so he later formed a gang with other troubled kids and started to steal... but the last straw was the horrible death of his sister Mariam. Not to mention how he was ultimately forced to kill his drunk father who wanted to sell Mariam.
Former Teen Rebel: Both of them, but played different. While Zaynab is happy with the life the Kou Empire has given them, Hassan is the only one that sees how that they're losing their identities and slavery is still in Balbadd, but can't do anything about it now that he has a family to take care of.
Happily Married: They got married sometime after Balbadd was conquered and had a son together. Zaynab is also pregnant again.
Alibaba's mother, she is described as a "kind and cheerful person" by him. She adopted Mariam and Cassim after their father disappeared. Before becoming a prostitute, she worked as a maid at Balbadd's palace. There she met and fell in love with the king, Rashid, with whom she had Alibaba.
The Mistress: To Rashid, they had an affair which lasted long enough for her to get pregnant.
The One That Got Away: To Rashid Saluja. They fell in love when Anise was working in the palace, but apparently she got fired and he never saw her again. But on his deathbed, he confessed to their son Alibaba that he always loved her.
Cain and Abel: The Cain to Alibaba's Abel. Ahbmad was not particularly favored by his father, who even asked Alibaba to rule when he invited him over to his deathbed. Ahbmad holds quite a bit of hatred for Alibaba, and ordered his death without much remorse when Alibaba trespassed in the palace a second time.
Took a Level in KindnessAnd Intelligence: Learning an enigmatic language, Torran, during his stay in the nation for research, and using it to help Aladdin and Hakuryuu from being mobbed by children who tried to con them. He still says that he done it strictly to get along with locals, though.
The very shy Deputy King of Balbadd. Once his brother is forced to abdicate, he rejects getting the throne as he wishes and considers Alibaba to be more fit to be the next King. He joins his brother in his exile and they both study together about the Torran language.
Authority in Name Only: Though his title is Deputy King, he doesn't wield that much power himself, though that may just because of his shy nature and guilt complex.
Big Brother Worship: Subverted in that he doesn't approve any of his older brother's actions. In fact he looks up to his younger brother, thinking that Alibaba is more brave and smarter than him, believing that he is the only one who can save Balbadd.
Guilt Complex: Sahbmad constantly berates himself for being too weak to stand up to Ahbmad.
The Mole: Was secretly helping the Fog Troupe against Ahbmad, because his younger brother was part of it.
Must Make Amends: He has always held the position of Deputy King behind Ahbmad, but has never been strong enough to directly oppose him for the sake of Balbadd. Now that Alibaba has come back, Sahbmad desperately wants to help Alibaba save the country.
Undying Loyalty: To Rashid Saluja, Ahbmad even calls him "the loyal dog of the previous king". His loyalty also extends to Sahbmad and Alibaba.
Also known as "The Organization." Their plan is to spread poverty, war, and discrimination throughout the world, slipping into positions of power within various countries as merchants, political advisers, or court ladies.
Fallen Hero: Many of them risked their lives to protect the world of Alma Torran and were Solomon's allies, if not his friends. Now they are the ones who betrayed Solomon and started the war that would ultimately destroy Alma Torran. Some of these former allies; like Ithnan, Falan, Wahid, Arba and Markkio, are now even members of Al-Thamen.
Go Mad from the Revelation: In Alma Torran, many of them were already broken as a result of losing their families in the final battle, but when they consequently discover the true meaning and nature of destiny from Ill Ilah; of how they are merely finite beings powerless to change their fate, they completely lose it, complete with Broken Tears and I'm Crying But I Don't Know Why being shown. Even after Solomon erases Ill Ilah's "destiny", they are convinced they are now trapped in Solomon's "prison", which leads to them rebelling against him. Eventually many of them formed Al-Thamen, with their sole goal as being to defy fate and destiny at whatever the cost. They still fail to realize they are actually surrending to Ill Ilah's destiny of suffering and bringing darkness wherever they go.
The Man Behind the Man: How they operate. They infiltrate countries, find the most tragic and/or gullible figure, turn them, and then turn them loose on their revenge quests.
Moral Myopia: If its doctrine is to be believed, Al-Thamen thinks it's doing good. This despite the fact that they deliberately go about causing suffering and destruction everywhere they go, and call anyone who doesn't share their fallacy "arrogant."
Rule of Symbolism: All of the members begin with hoods or hair obscuring their eyes. The men also wear headdresses secured by thorny crowns.
Screw Destiny: Their main goal. Deconstructed in that their way to do it destroys other people's livelihoods. Furthermore, the destiny which they are defying is actually Solomon's wish for everyone to be free. The higher-ups of Al-Thamen don't really want to screw destiny, they want to embrace it. By inviting Ill Ilah into the world.
Sealed Evil in a Can: Solomon trapped them all in another dimension, but unfortunately they became beings formed by thoughts and came to Magi's world in order to destroy Solomon's world once again.
Smug Super: All of the hosts of dark metal vessels are incredibly arrogant about it, even though, thus far, they have been shown as completely inferior to normal metal vessels (and even some household vessels). Not to mention the fact that such people were the ones unable to pass the test for real metal vessels.
What Is Evil?: Al-Thamen views itself as being a noble organization, attempting to free the world as it is now from "enslavement"; rather than an organization set out to destroy peace and order, and spread destruction and conflict. This viewpoint is considerably more disturbing once it becomes evident that should they succeed in "inviting their father" to the world, they will have killed everybody, including themselves, and they KNOW it.
A Magi and "Priest" of the Kou Empire who follows Al-Thamen and claims to be an old "friend" of Sinbad.
Evil Versus Oblivion: He stands on the side of Evil alongside Hakuryuu, after they fall into depravity together - going against Al-Thamen standing on the side of Oblivion, who want to destroy the world entirely.
Guyliner: You'd think it was to just make him look more bishie, but its probably a Shout-Out to his original story, in which Judar had to retrieve a phial of kohl (make-up).
Hazy Feel Turn: During their conquest of Belial's dungeon, Judar decides to defy his former comrades of Al-Thamen and kill its leader Gyokuen alongside Hakuryuu. But in doing so he rejects a chance at redemption, going from wanting nothing but war and carnage, to now wanting to make Hakuryuu king by destroying the world to remake it theirs anew, while killing anyone who gets in their way.
Hearing Voices: He apparently has a voice inside his head that prevents him from seeking redemption within Belial's dungeon. Just like that other traitorous Magi...
Ultimately, double subverted. It initially seems that after Aladdin shows to Judar through Solomon's Wisdom about what Al-Thamen did to him in the past, he is fine with it afterwards. He even pretends to be upset and mocks Sinbad for feeling sorry, when telling him about this in Chapter 110. From that aforementioned appearance, it can be assumed that Aladdin’s revelation had no real effect on Judar whatsoever...
...However, come Chapter 244, it is revealed that he actually feels severe resentment and self-hatred for Al-Thamen stealing his childhood. Thanks to Solomon’s Wisdom, now filled with rage at Al-Thamen’s actions, Judar allies with Hakuryuu to defy Al-Thamen’s control and kill Gyokuen. In order to achieve this, they try conquering Belial’s dungeon. When the Djinn tries to reform them by revealing their true wishes through illusory manifestations; Judar rejects symbolic redemption from Aladdin’s and falls into depravity once again alongside Hakuryuu, feeling in his anger that he’s gone too far to go back, now seeking to destroy this unfair world instead.
Kick the Dog: He smiles at Aladdin and introduces himself, then, as he reaches out to shake hands with him, punches him in the eye. Then he laughs at Alibaba for his weakness against his half-brother after Alibaba had already kicked himself for his failure. He pretends to have a Dark and Troubled Past, then laughs at Sinbad for believing him and feeling sorry for him.
Pet the Dog: In one omake, we see him playing nice with Aladdin doing some magi stuff. Some of his interactions with Kougyoku count as this to, like complimenting her swordsmanship and calling her cute.
Rebellious Rebel: Judar was already part of Al-Thamen, an organization whose goal is to defy the natural order of fate and destiny. After conquering Belial's dungeon together with Hakuryuu, they decide to revolt against Al-Thamen and kill their leader personally.
Redemption Rejection: In Belial's dungeon, a manifestation of his mind in the form of Aladdin shows that part of Judar's mind wanted to go towards his side, but that would mean accepting with a smile what a horrible life he had, forgiving the world that made him miserable. But his anger would never let him do that - and if the world says he's in the wrong, then he'll destroy it too and remake it as his own.
The Resenter: Chapter 244 reveals that he resents his fellow Magi because they avoided being manipulated and enslaved by Al-Thamen. As he puts it, "Why...did it have to be me?"
Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He decides to leave the battlefield after some debris almost felt over him; after all, he has become pretty useless after he created an Anti-Magic barrier in order to depower Gyokuen and make the fight a little more easier for Hakuryuu.
Tykebomb: He was born into a normal family, but just minutes after his birth, Al-Thamen kidnapped him to use him for his Magi status.
Vitriolic Best Buds: His relationship with Kougyoku. He calls her an old hag and generally mocks her, but he also encouraged her to become strong and it's clear that they do care for each other. The supplementary materials take it even further by mentioning that he specifically enjoys messing with Kougyoku on his days off. After Chapter 243, his relationship with Hakuryuu becomes this too.
Manipulative Bastard: At the end of his time in Balbadd, he laments that such a good place for raising hatred and despair has been saved by our heroes. He smirks and just says he should look for another country to ruin. In other words, he fully acknowledges that what Al-Thamen does is just evil. And he likes it.
Oh, Crap: Gets an awesome one when he sees Sinbad in Djinn equip charging an attack.
Brutal Honesty: At least in his younger years, openly calling Sheba out for her indoctrination and Ugo for not doing anything on combat.
Chekhov's Gunman: Introduced as an arc villain affiliated with Al-Thamen, but only some time after his death is he revealed to have been involved in quite a few sinister affairs. Among others, he is indirectly responsible for Magnostadt's manufacturing of Dark Djinn.
Not-So-Harmless Villain: Appears again after being decapitated by Alibaba in Sindria, then goes on to inflict curses on him and Sinbad.
Oblivious to Love: He couldn't see that the obvious reason of Sheba's jealousy towards Arba was because she had a crush on Solomon and envied their relationship.
Off with His Head!: Only in the manga. He is blind-sided by Alibaba, and cleanly beheaded. He escapes through a small snake, which bites Hakuryuu and inflicts a curse on him, that later allows him to manifest himself once more.
Pet the Dog: In the manga he allegedly treated Dunya much better than Apollonius, Zurmudd and Byoln.
Smug Super: Extremely pleased when his younger brother Setta praises his magic.
Yet he doesn't seem to care when Ugo does.
Status Buff: By using his lightning magic on Dunya and Isaac, he can enhance their magnetism powers.
Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: In the anime, he encourages Alibaba to kill him since he's the reason for everything: Balbadd's civil war and fragile situation, Cassim's death, his curse, and Sindria being forced into a war with Al-Thamen. Alibaba does it and all of Ithnan's black Rukh empowers Alibaba's curse, and makes him fall into depravity.
Broken Bird: Definitely. In fact, it's probably the main reason why Aladdin and Alibaba win.
Dark Action Girl: She certainly gives Aladdin and Alibaba a run for their money.
Dark and Troubled Past: She watched all her family and Isaac die, cursed her fate by falling into depravity, and became a member of Al-Thamen.
Defeat Means Friendship: Towards Aladdin. He was the only one she allowed herself to trust since he allowed her to see Isaac once again and did enjoy his company. Sadly it didn't last. It's those things that happened to her, that makes Aladdin decide to head on a journey by himself to Magnostadt.
Storm of Blades: Her "Extreme Magic"; which creates hundreds of these out of iron sand.
Sympathy for the Devil: Both the manga and anime have the MC's get this for her; but in the anime it causes Alibaba to be taken over by black Rukh, whilst in the manga it's just what got her to stop fighting.
You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: In the anime, Ithnan almost kills her when she failed to kill Aladdin and co with her extreme magic, and drained her Magoi. Subverted, since her Rukh revealed her backstory to Alibaba, allowing him to sympathize with her; thus making it much easier for Ithnan manipulate Alibaba and then have him fall into depravity.
Dunya's knight who is extremely loyal to her. Was once a man from the former Musta'sim Kingdom, now Magnostadt.
Would Hit a Girl: Only likes to fight them, actually. He punches Morgiana so hard that he says she'll never be able to have children. He thinks it would be sexual discrimination if he Wouldn't Hit a Girl.
A member of Al-Thamen who attacks Aladdin and the others after they leave Zagan's dungeon.
For tropes related to Falan, see her entry in Alma Torran.
A country now ruled by magicians, it was formerly known as the "Musta'sim Kingdom". It once had an elaborate Wizarding School, but when the magicians decided they were no longer just the royal family's tools, they revolted and overthrew the kingdom. Now they are one of the major powers of the world, but not all is as it seems. Princess Dunya Musta'sim was once part of the royal family. Yamraiha studied there as a child and the Chancellor was her adoptive father.
Aladdin's classmate and roommate at the Magic Academy, and the heir of an impoverished, noble family from Heliohapt.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He can be an arrogant prick at times, but underneath that he's a good, deeply altruistic young man who values all lives equally, and once you earn his respect, he's one of the best friends you could ask for.
One-Note Cook: Surprisingly for a member of royalty, he's able to cook. Less surprisingly, he's just able to cook his specialty.
Red Mage: He knows a bit of magic besides Healing magic.
Royals Who Actually Do Something: He's the youngest child of one of Heliohapt's noble families who left his country to train himself as a mage. He eventually took a supporting role in Magnostadt's war with Reim.
One of Aladdin's classmates at the Magic Academy, originally from the Reim Empire. With Aladdin, he is the top student at the school, and also like Aladdin, was sent on a mission to find the "abnormalities" of Magnostadt. He is working under the Magi Scheherazade. Later, he succeeds her position.
Cute and Psycho: Has a few shades of it. First shown with his attacking Aladdin from panic when he saw the gems on his wrists. And later he became increasingly unstable from jealousy toward Aladdin and the others, due to the fact that they'll live on while he won't.
Disney Death: Scheherazade allowed his ego to be reincarnated into the next Magi, rather than herself.
Dude Looks Like a Lady: He's so girly-looking that Aladdin actually gropes his chest to confirm if he's really a guy when they first meet. His feminine appearance starts to make a lot of sense when he's revealed to be an Opposite-Sex Clone of Scheherazade.
Light 'em Up: Created a shield of light magic to protect Marga.
Expendable Clone: Scheherazade sees no reason to keep Titus alive after he is done spying for her. Subverted since it's later revealed she really desires for Titus to live, but due to the fact that Scheherazade's real body is dying neither her recent clone nor Titus have much time left.
Face-Heel Turn: Somewhat. Mogamett promises to him supply him with Magoi to keep his existence, but as long as he fights to protect Magnostadt against the Reim Empire; ergo, his original country, his people and Scheherazade. Then he learns that the original Scheherazade will soon die and when that happens all her clones (including him) will perish as well anyway.
Heroic Sacrifice: Instead of waiting peacefully for his short life to end while all hell breaks loose, he is inspired by Marga to use the rest of his power (and his life) to help fix things up. Although his Magoi ends up being used to fuel Al-Thamen's father and unleashed it upon the world and Mogamett who he was finally able to free from his own hatred ends up dying at the Father's hands seconds later, this sacrifice eventually let Mogamett disrupt the Medium since he was the center that controlled it. Titus is later resurrected courtesy of Solomon and Scheherazade.
Opposite-Sex Clone: He's one of Scheherazade's clones created from her rukh, but he has the body of a man. He's rather self-conscious about it and gets angry when people remark his feminine appearance.
Pinocchio Syndrome: He doesn't want to die yet, so he's trying to found a way to get supplies of Magoi from a different source besides Scheherazade, and be able to live a normal life.
Anti-Villain: Not a bad guy, just really, really really racist.
The Atoner: Because he knows there is no current way to save the people he had allowed to fall into depravity to fuel the medium, he decides to remain with them to atone rather than rejoin the white Rukh.
Dark and Troubled Past: His wife died from magic overuse many years ago, forced by the Musta'sim Royal Family to serve the people with the other magicians. His daughter died during a war with the Parthevia Empire, beginning his Start of Darkness.
Despair Event Horizon: With the death of so many magicians in the war with Reim, he's fallen into depravity and no longer wishes to protect the Goi and only desires to protect the magicians.
Doting Parent: He was this towards both his biological daughter Sana and his adoptive daughter Yamraiha. He also behaves like this towards all the magicians, no matter what he'll always forgive them. Word of God claims that this is not a good parental trait.
One of Aladdin's magic professors. She's a yellow magician and she's the only know magician to have a stronger body than normal. She and her brother are the only know magicians to use whips instead of the common staff to perform magic. She teaches the 6th Kodor, which is mostly physical training.
Hot for Teacher: Aladdin really only passes her class, because he was reinvigorated every time he saw her...boobs.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She can be a bit of a bitch and her training methods are extremely brutal, and she has nothing but scorn for those who drop out of her training. However, she gives her full respect to those who have the guts to see it through to the end, and she is proud like a mother is proud when her students do well, especially in Aladdin's case.
Kung-Fu Wizard: Aside good magic, she uses a healthy dose of martial arts.
Wise Beyond Her Years: Acknowledged by Titus as such after she gives him a speech about how she would prefer to give her life fighting to keep save this "sparkling world" Titus has opened to her than have stayed in the 5th district, waiting her life to fade without achieve any of her dreams since such a life is no better than being dead. This inspires Titus to do the same.
The World Is Just Awesome: Because she has lived underground all her life and didn't expect it to be a long life, she goes gaga over pretty mundane things.
You Remind Me Of Myself: Her life imprisioned, her short lifespan and desire of knowing the exterior, reminded Titus of himself.
Sana was the daughter of Matal Mogamett, and she was born a magician just like both of her parents.
One of Aladdin's fellow classmates, who came from the Kou Empire. She starts off as a 6th Kodor like Aladdin, but is able to move up to 2nd in her first test. Her name was revealed by the "Magi Official Guidebook".
Dual Wield: She is the only magician shown wielding two staves.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In the anime, she doesn't have much patience for people who quite the harsh physical training; but is shown congratulating Aladdin both when he wins a 1st Kodor badge, and when he earns a special seat.
Heroic Sacrifice: Her current clone releases all the Magoi in her body to give it to the exhausted Alibaba and Kou royals.
She pulls another one in the Sacred Palace after her death. As the moment of her reincarnation approaches, Uugo asks her if she's sure she wants Titus to return in her place, and she tells him she is. Titus is then resurrected as the new Magi of Reim.
Hero of Another Story: Apparently, she had a similar relationship and adventures with the first king of Reim, to what Aladdin and Alibaba have now.
Humans Are Special: She knows that humans, with hard work and faith in themselves, can do incredible things; they make mistakes and stray from the right path sometimes, but if they're brave enough they can learn from their mistakes and can continue living. That's why, even though she's a Magi, she never uses her magic in Reim's wars, instead just supporting, motivating and having faith in her people, since she knows that Reim must stand on its own feet. However, in her talk with Aladdin and Titus, she realizes her errors and that she shouldn't turned a blind eye to the Empire's more dubious actions such as slavery, regardless of her own desire for Reim to stand on its own.
Icy Blue Eyes: After how long she's been around, she's very stern and cool-headed. Though given what we see in flashbacks of her youth it's obvious that she started with Innocent Blue Eyes.
Iron Lady: She's stoic and cool-headed, and ready to do anything in order to the protect the Reim Empire.
Her early callous disregard for her clone's (Titus) new-found love for life and demanding Titus' return to her causes Titus to rebel by siding with Magnostadt, and also earning the ire of the school's founder and country's leader Mogamett, who protects all his students (Titus included), with extraordinary zeal.
The Paragon: Her philosophy regarding normal humans is that they should learn to support themselves and one another instead of relying on magic, which directly contrasts with that of Mogamett.
Parental Substitute: To Titus one of her clones, who has a mind of his own. He considers her as much his mother as she considers him her son.
The reason why she does not want Reim to rely on magic or metal vessels, is because she wants them to be able to stand on their own.
She ended the war between Reim and Magnostadt after a chat with Aladdin, and allowed Titus to spend his last month of life with his friends.
Psychic Link: With Titus, which allows her to take control of his body for a short time.
Purely Aesthetic Gender: A special chapter has her say that Magi don't really consider themselves to be male or female. She is rather shocked when Titus tells her about Aladdin's love of women.
Rapunzel Hair: It drags out on the ground, though she herself is not very tall.
Really 700 Years Old: She has been supporting the Reim Empire for over 200 years, but still has the appearance of a young girl. It later turns out that her body is actually a clone like Titus, and that her real body is so ancient that it can no longer move on its own.
Beware the Nice Ones: Though he's really nice to everyone by default, if you threaten Scheherazade or Reim in any way, look out.
Big Brother Mentor: Just like his sister seems to be set to become Morgiana's Cool Big Sis, Muu seems to be falling into this position in his relationship with the young Fanalis. Muu is not only the one that tells Morgiana about their homeland, specifically saying that he should have told her before; but that the fact that he didn't tell her, was because he was worried about her reaction once she learned the truth.
Blue Blood: He is part of one of Reim's noble families.
Explosive Overclocking: Because of his low magoi he's unable to use his Djinn Equip for more than a couple of minutes without getting completely drained but his speed and strength are enough to destroy a city.
Famous Ancestor: He inherited the blood from the first King candidate Scheherazade chose, Pernadius Alexius.
Kick the Dog: Gives a Breaking Speech to Titus about him being an aberration that, if it weren't for Scheherazade, wouldn't have existed in the first place, and how he has lost his path as Scheherazade's pawn for thinking that he had worth as a unique person.
The Kirk: As part of a Freudian Trio with Myron and Lo'lo. He always has to get involved in their fights and try to make them get along.
Perpetual Smiler: Almost always has a friendly and good natured smile on his face.
Pet the Dog: Oddly enough just before his Break Them by Talking speech, when a desperate Titus tells Muu that he has made friends that he cherishes, Muu genuinely congratulates the other boy for this with his normal friendliness in the middle of battle. And later looks pretty solemn after seeing Titus' Heroic BSOD reaction from hearing this, clearly taking absolutely no pleasure in stating such things. Taking into account what we later find out about the Fanalis' real form, it does seem that Muu and the Fanalis may feel sympathetic towards Titus, since they aren't really humans.
Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: He is who reveals to Morgiana the truth behind the Fanalis' homeland, that is the fact that their real form is not a humanoid one. They are actually Red Lions, a powerful species from Alma Torran.
Undying Loyalty: To Scheherazade. Word of God said that it was his fate since he was born as he is a descendant of Pernadius, Scheherazade's first king.
White Sheep: Of all of the Fanalis we've seen so far, he's the only one with the disposition and magoi of a king candidate, albeit he's not a pureblood Fanalis. This is all the more obvious by the way he's attracted the Fanalis Corps, who are loyal only to him.
Nerva Julius Caluades
Son of the Reim Emperor and conqueror of the 44th dungeon, Shax.
Birds of a Feather: She and Olba fell in love while proclaiming their strong desire to protect Alibaba and the admiration they have towards him. Even, they share the single familiar that powers their household vessels.
Ship Tease: With Alibaba after his fight with Garda. Alibaba started to feel and behave a little like Cassim after his Rukh fused with Alibaba's; Cassim was of the type of men Toto likes, so she of course felt attracted for a second... until Alibaba returned to his normal self.
Even Evil Has Standards: While they admit that as bandits they dabbled in slavery they are aware of being the bad guys. They are horrified that a legitimate government which is supposed to protect the citizens would sell them into slavery.
Pet the Dog: They saved one girl from being raped saying that if you want to steal you should steal something more valuable than a girl's virginity.
Rags to Riches: They start off as thieves but eventually come to own a casino.
Badass Princess: She's actually pretty good in a fight, and even though she used a concealed weapon, she landed a hit on Sinbad.
Berserk Button: Don't insult her father. Really, don't. When a mob started insulting her and her men, telling them to get lost, she took it all stoicly. That is, until someone insulted her father, the emperor. If Sinbad hadn't stopped her, she probably would have beaten the offender to death with her bare hands.
All Love Is Unrequited: At least at the beginning of Ao S, since she has a crush on Drakon and knows very well that he likes the princess.
Ascended Extra: In the Magi storyline she is a minor character, just "Drakon's beautiful wife". The few things we learnt about her are thanks to trivia related to her husband, to the point that not even her name was known.
A country situated in the Northern lands that is part of the Seven Seas Alliance and is currently ruled by Chief Rametoto. During ancient times it was notorious for its pirates and sea raiders. The Imuchakk tribe has a confederation of five clans; each with their own laws, who function as a country and maintain autonomy and non-aggression pacts with each other. The National Chief is the head of state, who coordinates with the five chiefs that rule their respective clans and the Patriarchs who are heads of the villages.
The National Chief of Imuchakk. At some point in his life Rametoto conquered the 30th Dungeon and obtained his Djinn, Forneus.
Sasan is a small and landlocked country surrounded by mountains on all sides and part of the Seven Seas Alliance. It is also a religious country ruled by the "Knight King", Darius Leoxses. The country produced a vast natural resources of iron, gold, silver and other metals from the surrounding mountains. Given its difficult terrain, the country itself can only be reach by foot. Having a religiously devoted culture, the country is often called as the Land of Purity.
Darius is the "Knight-King" of Sasan. He is the owner of the Djinn Alloces. He is the father of Mystras and Spartos.
The Aktia Kingdom is a small coastal country, its port is an important point of contact between the Eastern and Western Continents.
The leader of the pirates who robbed ships and their valued contents near the Aktia Kingdom's port. The pirates were mostly made up of young children she kidnapped and brainwashed with her Magic Tool, "Holy Mother Halo Fan".
Compelling Voice: Her tool makes everyone see her words as those of their mother.
Didn't Think This Through: Her tool takes one's love for their mother and transfers it to her; which is why she uses children, but in the case of Aladdin, who never knew his mother, and Alibaba, who has been without one for a long time, it doesn't work very well. In the case of Hakuryuu, it transferred his hate... Leading to her capture and death.
Mercy Kill: Hakuryuu says this is why he killed her, as she was going to be executed anyway and the crowd was trying to lynch her on the dock. But Alibaba doesn't buy it, as Hakuryuu showing off her head to her "children" was downright despicable.
More Than Mind Control: Convinces children to follow her based on their innate desire for a "mother's love". Aladdin is able to resist this because he never knew his mother and never expected love from a mother. Alibaba is affected to some degree, but not completely because he still has his reasons abound. Morgiana is affected quite badly, probably because she's longing for a mother. Hakuryuu... well, just say that he has mother issues and leave it at that.
My Beloved Smother: Discussed. Aladdin realised that a person who controls your life forever can't be good at all, even if she calls herself "your mother" and one must cut the motherly bonds soon or later and be independent.
The leader of Umm Madaura's "pirate children", he is devoted to their mother and considered to be the "Big Brother" . After his defeat and Umm Madaura's death, Alibaba sends him and his siblings to Sindria, hoping that they could find a better life for them. When we see him again after the Time Skip, Olba has become more open, cheerful and adores Alibaba for giving him a second chance.
Birds of a Feather: He and Toto fell in love while proclaiming their strong desire to protect Alibaba, and the admiration they have towards him. Even, they share the single familiar that powers their household vessels.
Allergic to Love: So shy around women, that he will faint when even one barely touches him.
All Up To You: With Solomon and Sheba dead and Arba trapped in another dimension, it's all up to Ugo, the only Magi left, to try to keep the survivors alive and united, take care of Aladdin and also found a way to create the world anew.
Imagination-Based Superpower: Solomon believes him to be the real strongest magician in all Alma Torran because he have intelligence and imagination to create. Sheer power is useless, according to Solomon, because it can only destroy, but Ugo's mind can conceive ideas that can revolutionise the world. Chapter 236 reveals that he will be the one that created the current universe.
It's All My Fault: Blames himself for the destruction of the resistance's base and all the civilians' deaths; since if he had released David's defensive wall faster, then they could have arrived in time to save them.
Older Than He Looks: He's supposed to be in his fifties during the flashback of his days as a member of La Résistance, but he doesn't look anywhere near that old.
Old Maid: A rare male example. When people say that it's time he founds himself a woman, he says he's fine of not having his youth as long he has his magic research. Ithnan has said that a girl just for Ugo doesn't exist, since it's impossible to be as nerdy as him.
Parental Substitute: He was the closest thing Aladdin ever had to a family before he came to Magi's world, and it's hinted that Ugo more or less raised him. Aladdin's mother Sheba asked him to look after her child right before she died.
The Reveal: Ugo actually is King Solomon's Djinn; his head wasn't missing, just stuck in the "Room of Fortitude"; as he's unable to leave it and was teaching Aladdin to use magic all along. He wasn't just a Djinn, he was a genius magician and one of Solomon's closest friends, and later on became one of his three Magi.
Lipstick Lesbian: She seems very feminine and she has only shown interest in women. She says she has fallen for Hakuei, and in Alma Torran, she proposed to her fellow female Djinn Leraje to forget about Focalor and fall in love with her instead. Makes sense since apparently, her species is an One-Gender Race of females.
Humans Are the Real Monsters: He doesn't select king candidates because he considers humans selfish, treacherous liars by nature. He makes an exception with Hakuryuu, as he describes his Rukh as "painfully honest".
True Companions: She doesn't want a single king to rule, but longs for a world built for the combined forces of a king and his strong retainers.
Woman Scorned: She calls Kouen a "cheater" because he already has three Djinn and reminds herself she swore to never fall in love with playboys like him. When chanting his Extreme Magic, Kouha says that his enemies will "disappear under the queen's crushing grief."
Kouha: "You look like someone who was just ditched by her man."
You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Kouha was ready to be a household vessel user but she saw he was better than that just by seeing his army's eyes full of Undying Loyalty. She recognized nobody would choose Kouha as king, but if he could earn the loyalty of his army, he was worthy of her power.
Your Make Up Is Running: After noticing how Kouen already has three Djinn and recalling she hates playboys, she starts crying because she still founds him attractive.
Kouha: "What's that? You pervy Djinn. Your make-up looks shitty."
Djinn of Terror and Meditation, he uses Fire Magic, and one of Kouen's 3 Djinn.
The world that had been ruled by King Solomon in the past and where the Djinn had all once been humans. Due to a catastrophic war there, all life was eventually destroyed.
The Atoner: Solomon and his vassals had all helped power the mind-altering towers in the past. But now they seek to destroy all these towers, and whisk away the avatars of the divine staves, in order to atone for all of their sins.
Foregone Conclusion: It's well-known from the beginning that regardless of the good things that happen in the flashback, everything will go to hell for Alma Torran. We even know who will be among the ones to betray Solomon, though not why.
Freudian Trio: The first three Magi. Sheba as the overworked Superego who believes in Solomon's actions and tries to enforce peace to honor his sacrifice, Arba as the cynical Id, who ended betraying Solomon in favor of her devotion to Ill Ilah; and Ugo as the conflicted Ego, trapped between his loyalty to Solomon and his fears for the changes which Solomon made.
How We Got Here: The whole Alma Torran arc is basically Aladdin narrating about its creation to its destruction, to all king vessels and their households; so that they'll know of how everything came to be.
Wizards Live Longer: The users of the divine staves are able to halt their ageing if they feel like it.
You Are Too Late: The group manages to escape David's prison in just 15 minutes, to go and save everyone left at their base. Unfortunately, by the time they arrive; all they find is their base reduced to ashes, and all the dead civilians along with Tess and Setta's horribly burned corpses.
King Solomon Jehoahaz Abraham
Click here to see Solomon's face (a major spoiler).
The king of Alma Torran and the leader of La Résistance in his youth. He's related in some way to Aladdin.
Voiced by: Hidemitsu Shimizu (Japanese)
Abstract Apotheosis: He practically became Free Will, as White Rukh is in opposition to Ill Ilah's Black Rukh and its destiny.
The Atoner: He deserves special credit because his father is the one who created the mind-altering towers. Solomon thus believes himself to be responsible for freeing the non-human species from their 500 years of enslavement.
Broken Pedestal: Several of his former comrades react badly when they find out how he supplanted Ill Ilah and shared the Rukh with everyone. They believe that by imposing his will upon them in such a way, that he's now no different from his tyrannical father David.
Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: The brooding boy to Sheba's gentle girl. She is able to see when he's really hurting inside and, unlike even Arba or Ugo who agreed to mind their place; she promised to be his equal, something Solomon desperately wants.
Brutal Honesty: Told to Sheba, right in her face, that she was a despicable woman and, that in his eyes, she's a worse monster compared to the other species she looks down at. Although his opinion of her got better, when he later observed Sheba playing with a manticore and genuinely having fun. When she had a Heel Realization and understood the extent of suffering her magic caused to her manticore friend, he declared that he likes her now.
Cain and Abel: He and Arba are technically siblings and they seemed to be really close. At the end, Arba becomes his ultimate enemy and decides to destroy his "fake world".
Celibate Hero: He's too focused in the rebellion to pay attention to Sheba's feelings for him, but also he subconsciously considers himself unworthy of being loved and keeps himself away from that topic. Subverted in Chapter 225, when he finds himself in a growing relationship with Sheba and, later on, gets her pregnant.
The Chains of Commanding: He had to renounce his beliefs and convictions, for the sake of being a strong leader to the people.
He dislikes it when Arba calls him "young master" and has told her countless times to quit it. He especially wants her to stop treating him as someone above her, because she has known him his whole life and the one he wants to hold his Morality Chain.
He also tells Sheba she doesn't need to be especially respectful towards him, just because of being the son of the ruler of the Magician Orthodox.
Drunk with Power: Being the central pillar of La Résistance and the one people look up with awe and hope in their eyes, he's afraid that he could become this; like his father, who holds the Magician Orthodox's hearts in his hands and went all A God I Am.
Expository Hairstyle Change: Starts to let his hair loose after deciding to take the king role. Notice that his Rukh form has the braid again, meaning that he's free of being something he didn't wanted to be and can be himself again.
The Faceless: At least while in his days as king. When younger, he was identical to Aladdin.
The Four Loves: His philosophy is that if you can love others, you're worthy of living. Ironically, having experienced little to no love in his life; he craves it deep inside, but considers himself unworthy of it and says that its enough for him with just seeing those close by feeling it.
The Gadfly: He goes around pressing people's Berserk Buttons in hopes of finding someone that actually gets mad at him. Sheba turns out to be that person, and he often jokes about her growing Big Eater tendencies and for using her pregnancy as an excuse.
A God I Am Not: He refuses to believe that his vast power makes him a god. Unfortunately, he's having trouble convincing the other species he liberates who keep trying to worship him.
Hypocrite: He recognizes it. He goes around with his team and the other species, preaching about the importance of love in one's life; but he has no time or even interest in finding love for himself, whilst he has never had a loving relationship with his own father.
I Am Not My Father: His biggest fear is turning out like David. That the other species are practically worshipping him is just making him even more uneasy.
I Just Want to Be Normal: All he wants is to be seen as an average, normal person, with flaws to not be ignored and have people trustful enough to tease him about them; not some god nor proxy nor even a king or ruler, who's alienated from the people below them.
I Just Want to Have Friends: He confessed to Sheba that the real reason he ran away from home to start the revolution was because he wanted a world were he could have friends who didn't considered him as someone above them.
Improbable Age: Spearheaded the rebellion against the Magician Orthodox, and was the most powerful of all magicians, at around the age of just 12-15.
Innocently Insensitive: He often calls Sheba a brat. Though he does it as just a joke and to point out how she's the Tagalong Kid, he doesn't realize how much it hurts her.
With Arba. He's in his teens (later early twenties) while she's around 100 years old and she's been his closest confidant and somewhat of a mother figure to him since he was a little kid. He considers her existence to be particularly important because of this.
Also, with Ugo. They have being friends since Solomon was 12.
Just a Kid: He keeps treating Sheba as just the team's Tagalong Kid, even when she's already a 17 year old young woman, to her great dismay. At the end of Chapter 224, he declared that he would stop doing it after seeing how much she has matured and has learned of her own troubled past.
Like Brother and Sister: He most likely feels this way about Arba. Since not only she has been with him all his life and acted as a sort of mother figure to him, but given that Arba was created by David they could even be considered to be siblings.
Lonely at the Top: While his friends try to cheer him up saying that he would be a great king, Solomon knows that now, no matter what he says or does, a line will be drawn between him and them, leaving him all alone atop a pedestal he never wanted to be on. Sheba sees this and promise to remain at his side, as his equal.
Nay-Theist: He believes that Ill Ilah is really a mindless lump of power rather than a god. Notice that, whenever the group is praying to Ill Ilah for protection and victory, he's just smiling instead of actually praying.
No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: His sacrifice was to ensure everyone he loved was able to get the freedom to choose their own destiny instead of following that of Ill Ilah. Almost every magician misunderstood his actions as a way to enforce his own will over them and betrayed him, destroying everything he archived.
Non-Idle Rich: Solomon was born to a noble family. Not that he cares; as he says that he is no longer a "young master", nor is Arba his servant.
Offered the Crown: The people he liberated beg him to become their ruler, believing that this is the only way they won't fall prey to infighting.
Parental Substitute: Wanted to be this for Sheba, since she reminded him of his younger self. When she starts to see him as something more, he's reluctant in giving up this attitude towards her, because he wants to be a better father than his own was.
Physical God: A magician so powerful that everybody started to look up to him as a god; something he utterly disliked.
Puppet King: Quite literally. Since Solomon's soul became the White Rukh, his physical body is nothing but a shell that can't rule over his people and try to make peace between the species and the rebellious magicians. Sheba has to now take his place as the leader and ruler, with Solomon only a figurehead.
Took a Level in Kindness: Arba says that when he was a kid, he was an annoying and incompetent Bratty Half-Pint who thought he was better and stronger than anyone. He eventually recognized that this was true, hence his change.
The Xenophile: Solomon is fascinated with any non-human species' cultures, and thus he was like a child in a candyshop, when the manticores invited him and his group to spend the night within their underground city.
Wide-Eyed Idealist: All he longs for is a world were everybody can live as equals, but life and circumstances keep breaking his hopes of seeing his dream as a reality into pieces. When Ugo declares that the existence of Rukh makes all life equal, he seems clearly glad to know that everybody is indeed equal in some way after all.
You Remind Me of X: He tells Sheba that she reminds him of his former self, so he wants to make sure she doesn't revert back to the way she was so she can go down the right path.
A little girl who was saved by Solomon when she was about to die from giving energy to a Mind-altering tower and the viewpoint character of the Alma Torran arc. At first, she's a fundamentalist who hates all non-human species, but eventually grows out of it and becomes a member of La Résistance and Solomon's worshipper and later, lover.
Voiced by: Eimi Okada (Japanese)
Action Girl: Becomes one after the 5-year timeskip, thanks to becoming an active member of La Résistance and its third strongest magician.
Berserk Button: Sheba will never forgive anyone who speaks or even thinks ill of Solomon. This is one of the reasons she refused to hear the "requests" of the other magicians who would only talk about how "arrogant" was Solomon for replacing Ill Ilah and "taking control of their fate" when Solomon actually wanted to give them free will.
Declaration of Protection: After standing up for Solomon against some corrupt magicians of the resistance who were manipulating the Berserkers and Centaurus species into being suspicious of him, just for being his father's son; she declares that she believes in Solomon and will protect him no matter what.
Defrosting Ice Queen: Goes from cold and unsentimental fanatic to idealist and sweet cutie to brash revolutionary with a crush on her leader.
Divine Date: With Solomon. In a way, since he started human and was his soul what became divine, while his body became kinda of a empty shell.
Dogged Nice Girl: A type 2. Now that Arba has give her her blessing to be Solomon's love interest, Sheba now has the difficult task to make Solomon see her as more than just a child that he must take care of.
Empty Eyes: They start to go away as she shows more emotion and even plays with a young manticore, something she wouldn't have ever considered during her initial appearance. They sometimes pop out from time to time, specially when facing something she doesn't agree with, like Solomon thinking Ill Ilah isn't truly a god. She also has these by the time of Al-Thamen's rebellion, but they're as the result of her exhaustion, sadness and uncertainty.
Everyone Can See It: Everyone (save Ithnan), could easily see how Sheba held a Precocious Crush towards Solomon for the past 5 years and is jealous of Arba's relationship with him.
Expressive Hair: Her little hair horns droop and perk up depending on her mood.
Fantastic Racism: She hates all the non-human species who lived in Alma Torran. And anyone who sympathizes with them or does not agree with her is "impure". When playing with a young manticore, however, she begins to show traces of changing her stance towards the non-human species. Later on, she realized and admitted to herself that the only reason she hated them was because she was afraid of them.
Flower in Her Hair: After a young manticore gives her a giant flower as an apology for almost attacking her in their first meeting, and wants her to wear it in her hair. Amusingly, the flower is too heavy for her, but the manticore was happy with her trying to do it anyway.
Freudian Excuse: The main reason behind her Fantastic Racism seems to be mostly due to the fact that it was indoctrinated in her at an early age by her church, and so this made her fear and enslave them in compensation. She shows immense confusion when the manticore tribe weren't behaving as she was taught they would.
The Fundamentalist: Played with. She considers that the duty of humankind given by Ill Ilah was enslaving the non-human species in retribution of the past of being devoured, because it was written in the "Holy Scriptures". But in reality, it was that Ill Ilah wanted humans to be the ones who united the world. She later grows out of it and Arba takes the place of the crazed fanatic who went mad after Solomon replaced Ill Ilah's place.
Green-Eyed Monster: Despite having had a good close relationship with Arba in the past, her jealousy over Arba's closeness to Solomon has made her see Arba as only a rival. Interestingly Sheba is aware of this trope being in play and becomes frustrated since she still loves Arba but her jealousy is clouding her judgement.
The Heart: When Arba tries to convince her to become Solomon's conscience, she declines instead opting to become a support pillar for all her friends, Arba included.
Heartwarming Orphan: She was apparently abandoned by her parents at the step of the church she was then raised in, when she was born. Though she isn't heartwarming at first, she sure grows up to be.
Heel Realization: She becomes very ashamed of herself, when Ugo reminds her that the manticores were mindless beasts only because of her magic; and then finding out that it led directly to Momo's father's death.
Her Heart Will Go On: The Solomon she fell in love with has become the White Rukh, and all that Sheba got left of him was his empty shell of a body that can't recognize her anymore. Still, faithful to his conviction and concious of his sacrifice, she endures her grief to try to make some order between the magicians in order to make his dream of an equal world come true.
The High Queen: Became Solomon's consort. And actually she was the one that pretty much ruled over the magicians, since Solomon was uncapable of doing so because of being a shell of his former self.
Hopeless Suitor: She knows and recognises that she will never be as close and precious to Solomon as Arba is, and that he will probably always think of her as only a child he must take care of. Eventually subverted.
Love Hurts: Her feelings for Solomon go beyond mere admiration. Unfortunately, he only treats her as a kid and she's no match for Solomon's bond with Arba, which is a source of great frustration and sadness for her. He does eventually come to reciprocate her feelings and they become a couple, only to have her heart broken when Solomon's soul becomes the White Rukh.
Missing Mom: She ends up dying before meeting her son, Aladdin.
No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Even after she lost Solomon, Sheba decided to take his place as the one who would unite the world and create the utopia Solomon always dreamt of. She overworked herself to allow the other species to establish their cities and tried to mantain the now corrupted magicians under control, believing they would eventually understand and move forward. Unfortunately, the magicians saw it as Sheba forgetting about them and "falling under Solomon's control" and rebelled against her.
Post-Kiss Catatonia: She literally starts to melt after Solomon gives her a kiss on the forehead.
Post-Stress Overeating: Starts to devour the whole table after eavesdropping on Solomon and Arba's bonding moment.
Powered by a Forsaken Child: She alone powered a tower that mind-controlled any species that wasn't human, prior to the creation of Alma Torran. When La Résistance whisked her away, she was getting close to death.
Precocious Crush: Solomon is 5 years older than her and they first met when she was only 12 years old. Solomon decided to try to be a father figure for Sheba, but after a few years, she starts seeing him as something more. He doesn't take her feelings seriously at first, but he eventually acknowledges her and they enter in a serious relationship.
Pregnant Badass: She eventually becomes pregnant with Solomon's child, but that doesn't stop her from being ready to fight the final battles to end the war in Alma Torran. She was still carrying her baby Aladdin while fighting Arba when Al-Thamen's rebellion started.
Red Herring: Her staff makes you suspect Sheba might turn out to be Gyokuen, but it's eventually revealed that Arba is Gyokuen. She stole Sheba's staff after defeating Sheba. The Empty Eyes she's seen with in the beginning of the Alma Torran flashback also makes you think she has a grudge against Solomon, but they're actually as the result of exhaustion and sadness.
Relationship Upgrade: After all her failing attempts at courtship, it was her undying faith in Solomon and in his truly altruistic cause what made Solomon start seeing her as a love interest.
Rescue Introduction: Her first scene is being saved by Solomon and his group when she was about to die due of magic exhaustion. At first it was unwanted, though.
She Is All Grown Up: Goes from 12 to 17 during the timeskip. It takes Solomon a while, but once she defends him from unfair accusations relating his father, Solomon finally realizes Sheba is not a child anymore and starts to see her as a woman and potential love interest.
Unwanted Rescue: Despite being on the verge of death, she resents that Solomon's team whisked her away from the tower. She was there then at the time because she wanted to be, and since she considered it her sacred duty.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Solomon fears she is becoming this, when she shows the same fanatical devotion to The Resistance's cause that she showed to that of the Magician Orthodox. She also has a problem with trying to do everything herself.
Why Can't I Hate You?: She becomes very angry at herself following the timeskip, because despite loving Arba as a sister/mother figure, she's still very jealous of her and Solomon's relationship.
Wide-Eyed Idealist: After Solomon's crusade makes her see that a unified world, where everyone could be equals, was possible. Played for Drama after she lost Solomon and all that she had left to live was archieving peace on his behave.
You Are Not Alone: When she understands that Solomon's determination in freeing the non-human species comes from believing himself as responsible for his father's actions, as his son. She then reminds him that he doesn't have to do it alone, and that he has his True Companions with him. He thanks her for that.
Close-Call Haircut: One of her braids gets cut off during her battle with Sheba. This, coupled with her stealing Sheba's staff and crown, gives her the look of the traitor Magi from Gyokuen's flashback.
According to Ithnan, Arba was kind of like a surrogate sister to Sheba after she officially joined the resistance. They started to grow apart when Sheba fell in love with Solomon and became jealous of Arba's closer relationship with him.
She could be considered a literal example towards Solomon, as they kinda share the same "father".
Crocodile Tears: Manages to gain Ugo's sympathy with fake tears after she and Sheba got into an argument. Another clue to her being Gyokuen.
Dark Action Girl: She is the one who taught Solomon how to fight and is the second strongest member of La Résistance. She can also be rather brutal and ruthless, as seen in Chapter 228.
Dissonant Serenity: Kills, what turns out to be a fake David, with the same warm motherly smile she always has and gently lays him on the floor while telling him goodbye. Did we mention, her way of killing him was stabbing him through the mouth and cutting the top of his head off?
Dying Declaration Of Hate: Spends her final moments in Alma Torran declaring that she hates Solomon and that she will destroy everything he created, even if all that remains of her is her consciousness.
Evil Matriarch: To Solomon and Sheba. After starting her rebellion, she destroys the utopia Solomon always dreamt of and blames Solomon for everything and kills Sheba to "free" her of the "fake god's" control.
Facial Markings: She has a Third Eye on her forehead, like the rest of Alma Torran's human magicians. When she destroys Alma Torran in rebellion, it then changes to being the three black dots that all of Al-Thamen have.
Fallen Hero: None of them fell harder than Arba, who was once one of Solomon's most beloved followers and trusted friends. After he took Il Ilah's place, Arba grew to hate Solomon and thus started a rebellion. What's more, she's been revealed as the monstrous, selfish and cruel Ren Gyokuen.
Mistaken for Romance: She and Solomon at first seem to be a thing and Sheba even thought they were meant to be together and didn't stand a chance against Arba. However, it's later made clear that Arba's relationship with Solomon is more sibling-like; and Arba is in fact the one who tells Sheba to marry Solomon, not seeming to have any problem with it.
Not in This for Your Revolution: It's implied she served in Solomon's resistance not actually for the sake of his cause, but just so that she could get the chance to kill Elder David herself. She later claims to Solomon that she never cared about creating an equal world and unlike him who came to love every single being equally, she was only was doing what Ill Ilah told her to do.
Not So Stoic: When she acknowledges Sheba's jealousy towards her she does so in a flat matter of fact way, but when Sheba tells her she herself dislikes feeling that way and still loves Arba, Arba's eyes fill with tears, proving it really did bother her that Sheba was resenting her.
Offing the Offspring: It's Arba who cuts down Sheba, her surrogate daughter, and takes her stave, sealing Arba's final step into the monstrous Gyokuen.
Older Than She Looks: Despite looking no older than twenty, she's the eldest of the resistance's main group. She's later revealed to be about 100 years old.
The Only One I Trust: While she is not the only person he trusts, Solomon admits that she is the one who he trusts most in this world. Which makes her eventual betrayal even more ironic.
Parental Substitute: Sheba considers her the closest thing she ever had to a mother, and it's implied that she also was a surrogate mother to Solomon. It's tragic that her relationship with both of them ended up on such bad terms.
Psycho Supporter: She is this for Ill Ilah; to the point where she is prepared to destroy the world and everything else which Solomon and she had fought to build, just so she that can restore Il Ilah to its former glory and punish Solomon for his supposed "arrogance."
Rebellious Rebel: She was one of Solomon's first allies in his revolt against the Magician Orthodox, but she later led a rebellion against him in turn, and destroyed everything that they had fought together to build.
Sanity Slippage: After Solomon replaces Ill Ilah, Arba effectively loses her sanity.
Sarcastic Devotee: Her role as Solomon's support is going around calling out his flaws and failures to keep him humble.
Satanic Archetype: She was a former ally, trusted friend and paragon of God (Solomon) who led a rebellion within Heaven (Alma Torran) along with other Fallen Angels (Al-Thamen), which subsequently led to its total destruction. Not to mention that since Asian symbolism assigns light to masculinity (again Solomon), and darkness to femininity (namely Arba); then she fits this trope very well indeed.
Shipper on Deck: She wants Sheba to marry Solomon, so that she and Sheba can then be pillars of support for Solomon together.
She sheds these when Sheba proved her loyalty to Solomon being strong enough to be his support, and he accepted that Sheba is already a young woman, meaning that he's considering her feelings and is now opening his mind to the idea of being loved.
This Is Unforgivable!: She considers Solomon replacing Ill Ilah to be the ultimate sin and betrays him in order to destroy his "fake world".
Token Evil Teammate: Feels this is her role to play, so she insults Solomon to keep him humble, and when necessary, acts as his hammer when obstacles prove too difficult. When she tries to convince Sheba to be his conscience, she paints herself as a demon to Sheba's angel. She certainly proves she's capable of the role in Chapter 228. This is set in stone when she betrays Solomon and causes the destruction of the world, all because Solomon "killing" Ill Ilah was the only thing she would never forgive.
Undying Loyalty: She believes her duty is to keep Solomon humble, even if he should one day kill her for it. However, her fanaticism towards Ill Ilah later proves to be greater.
What the Hell, Hero?: Calls Solomon out when he decides to take over Ill Ilah's power and share the Rukh with every single species in the world, claiming how it's no different from what his father David had done.
Action Dad: After becoming a father to Tess, Wahid doesn't hesitate to put himself on the front lines
Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He may have turned to the dark side, but Wahid dies saving Falan in the final battle of Alma Torran, admitting that while he no longer knows what justice is, he knows he loves her.
Taking the Bullet: He's mortally injured when protecting Falan from their enemies' attacks in the final battle. He then uses his final energy to summon Ill Ilah, claiming it's in order to see his son again.
Thanks for the Mammary: Wahid is occasionally seen touching both Falan's breasts. For some reason she doesn't mind, and just lets him do it.
Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: It's very difficult not to pity Wahid, whose initial role as a member of Al-Thamen and the Medium for Ill Ilah responsible for destroying nearly all life in Alma Torran, is precipitated by the death of his son Tess. The fact that Wahid dies saving the life of the woman he loves, believing there's a chance he can see his son again is utterly heartrending.
Break the Cutie: Having your young child die in your arms while you're unable to do anything about it sure is a great way to break anyone...
Broken Bird: By the time of her appearance in Adventure of Sinbad, it's clear the events in Alma Torran, especially her son's and husband's deaths, have made her bitter and twisted. After Wahid's death, Falan has nothing left.
Chekhov's Gunman: Although first introduced in the Magi main series within a flashback; she actually appears earlier on chronologically in Adventure of Sinbad, as a Magician Counselor for the Parthevia Empire, (actually having infiltrated it as a part of Al-Thamen), and accompanies Drakon and Jafar during their exploration of Valefor's dungeon, to capture its Djinn and Sinbad.
Cynicism Catalyst: Her son's death... And her husband's sacrificing his life to save her didn't help much either.
Despair Event Horizon: Tess' death breaks her. When Wahid dies to save her, she's so broken that all she can do is bitterly snarl that even Wahid is leaving her.
Happily Married: To Wahid. They married and had a child together over the timeskip. Although they bicker a lot, they clearly love each other and really happy together. Tragically, Falan loses both him and her son and that's her Start of Darkness.
How Dare You Die on Me!: When Wahid sacrifices his life in order to protect her, Falan reproaches he's going to leave her behind just like Tess did.
Like an Old Married Couple: She and Wahid have just being married for 7 years, but already bicker a lot. Justified since they have known each other for a long time already; she even says that recalling his flaws was her way to praise him.
The Masochism Tango: With Wahid. She even threatened him with "making him never touch her breasts anymore".
Outliving One's Offspring: Her only child is left trapped behind at their home base, and massacred by the enemy in a sneak attack.
Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: What he seems to successfully attempt to do after killing himself before Solomon, and which is implied to have been his main aim in life all along. In doing so, he aims to consequently "become one" with Il Ilah for eternity.
Fantastic Racism: Views all the non-human species of Alma Torran as being fundamentally inferior to humans.
A God I Am: He's a powerful magician that rules the Orthodox's council. He is thus practically a king; so why not go a step further, enslave all of the non-human species and become a god? Solomon recognises this about his father though, and doesn't want to become like him. Solomon believes that David actually plans to surpass Ill Ilah, killing it in the process.
Orcus on His Throne: In Alma Torran, even after a 5 year timeskip, during by which Solomon's followers had unified 3/4 of the world under their cause; he hasn't been nearly active enough personally in stopping Solomon. Lampshadedby David's minions at one point, no less. Turns out that there's a reason for this.
Would Not Shoot a Civilian: Averted; after Solomon and co. discover that David wasn't in the Magician Orthodox cathedral, it is shown that David and his cohorts are now explicitly attacking the women and children left behind at Solomon's home base.
Remember the New Guy: The anime does this to them. They were featured with Aladdin in the first chapter of the manga, but that entire chapter was left out of the anime. When Aladdin later encounters them in the anime with Morgiana, he already knows them.
Subverted, as they do hint of their association with him.
Bad Boss: Jamil seems friendly enough at first, but this only makes him more of a psychopath, in that he keeps up the friendliness, whilst abusing his slaves.
Break the Haughty: Jamil gets a massive one courtesy of him underestimating Alibaba and Aladdin.
Dirty Coward: When the dangers of the dungeon begin to show, he loses his amicable and threatening demeanor, becoming terrified and panicky.
Enfant Terrible: Morgiana's flashbacks show him abusing her even when they were both children.
Establishing Character Moment: Jamil is introduced as talking rather amicably with his slave, Morgiana, who returned to him even after being freed. His next scene is of him casually beating up his slaves without changing his happy expression and ranting about how he deserves to be King. This dichotomy becomes the focus of his arc.
Took a Level in Badass: After staying off screen for about 100 chapters, Dorji appears again in Chapter 145, as the captain of the Kouga army of household vessel users working under Ren Hakuei's command.
A slave trader who partners up with a band of thieves.
Would Hurt a Child: Throws a girl into a pit of hyenas because she is sick and useless as a slave.
One of the four current Magi, along with Scheherazade, Judar, and Aladdin. A wanderer who does as he pleases, currently living in the Great Rift on the way to the Dark Continent. Raised the first dungeon, Baal, 14 years before the start of the series, though he has never chosen a King Candidate.
Adaptation Dye-Job: The Adventure of Sinbad anime makes his silvery hair a much darker blond.
Born-Again Immortality: Yunan has already lived nine lives, in only his current body. Every time he dies, his Rukh is taken to the Sacred Palace and he revives in a body, like Scheherazade did with Titus.
Day Hurts Dark-Adjusted Eyes: He prefers dark places. In Adventure of Sinbad, Sinbad first met him after finding him inside a barrel; he lives in the Great Rift between the Dark Continent and he comments that Sindra's sunlight is too strong for him.
Mundane Utility: He uses magic to 'play' with the atoms in order to create...a wooden house with everything included and food. The dream of every traveler.
Mysterious Backer: He's also supported by Ugo (and by extension, Solomon), and seems to know much more than Aladdin about what's going on in this world, but he doesn't help much aside from showing the path of what to do to others.
Mystical White Hair: His hair is platinum blonde, almost white, befitting his status as a powerful Magi.
