Characters / Negima: Cosmo Entelecheia

That's right, Mahou Sensei Negima! is so overstuffed that it broke the folder system. Again. And it's still growing. So we decided to split the page. Again. This page is for everyone who's a member of Cosmo Entelecheia or allied with them. If you're still hungry after the first three pages, you might want to grab yet another sandwich. Or maybe an enchilada or something to shake things up.

This page is full of spoilers, naturally. You have been warned.

Cosmo Entelecheia

A mysterious group who instigated the ancient war between the Confederation and the Hellas Empire. Their supposed goal was to bring about The End Of The (Magical) World As We Know It. The Ala Rubra stopped them, though remnants of them are still active, which the Ala Alba are currently fighting.

    Shared traits 

Tropes pertaining to Cosmo Entelecheia as an organization

  • Alien Blood: On the rare occasions in which they've been made to bleed, the blood appears to be either clear or white. Considering how they are formed, this may be raw magical energy, as evidenced by the fact that when destroyed they appear to blow into the same flower petals that Magic World residents are made of.
  • Anti-Villain: Their evil plot is... to save the world by putting everyone in a dream world so that they can survive The End of the World as We Know It.
  • Artificial Human: Everyone in the original organization except the Lifemaker and possibly Dynamis. Tsukuyomi (the mercenary) and the two loosely affiliated with CE (Poyo and the Gravekeeper) appear to be the only humans. Well, a demon and an apparently immortal human for the latter two.
  • Back from the Dead: Every major CE member over the last twenty years has either come back from the dead or simply returned to the battlefield.
  • Deflector Shield: Simply touching anyone in the top tier of CE's membership is a tall order, as they are all protected by "multi-layer mandala-style" barriers that are nigh-impenetrable to most attacks, physical, magical, or otherwise.
  • Divided We Fall: Ala Rubra and CE refused to work together. Ala Alba is trying to reach a compromise instead. And right as Negi convinces Fate to stop doing this, he gets... overruled.
  • The End of the World as We Know It: Their ultimate goal is to destroy the Magical World along with its 1.2 billion residents.
  • Four-Element Ensemble: They appear to try and maintain this. There's the primary four elements of wind/lightning, earth, fire and water/ice plus Dynamis as shadow. This is also referenced in the name, 'Cosmo Entelecheia' though not pointed out explicitly.
  • Jerkass: All of them, apparently.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: Their model names tend to reference mythology, such as Averruncus being the Roman god of disaster prevention or Atar (Nii) being related to fire in (apparently) Parthian.
  • Numerical Theme Naming: The Artificial Humans have Latin numbers for names to signify their model number.
  • Technical Pacifist: Members of Cosmo Entelecheia avoid lethal force as much as they possibly can. Severe threats get an exception, but otherwise the no killing policy is strictly in place. In fact, Quartum shows that even if they wanted to, they are in fact built to not be capable of intending to kill opponents that aren't a significant threat. However, this programming applies in such a way that Chachamaru is not considered alive, and if the target is sent to Cosmo Entelecheia upon death it's also okay, since that's what the group intends to do anyway.
  • Villainous Valor: When Ala Alba is charging the Gravekeeper's palace, Cosmo Entelecheia is completely on the defensive and stalling for time as much as possible. They receive multiple beatdowns and some rather sympathetic portrayals, especially Shirabe and soon after, Fate himself.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: All of the constructs apart from Fate, Secundum and Dynamis are quite lacking in development: They are brought in and swiftly disposed of. It actually happens twice to the Averrunci triplets.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The organization as a whole has a good goal, namely saving over a billion people. However, they want to do this by forcefully rewriting everyone into a paradise realm they cannot escape from. Yet they're trying not to hurt anyone if they can help it and the more human members seem to have genuine respect for their opponents and humanity as a whole.
  • You Are Number 6: Primum through Sextum for the Averruncus series, Nii, and Septendecim (apparently the Adad line suffers high casualties). Apparently, Dynamis is special, as he is the only exception.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Policy set up by the Lifemaker, apparently.
  • Your Princess Is in Another Castle: Negi defeats Fate and the two of them agree to try Negi's plan, and it looks like the end of the arc...but then the Lifemaker shows up with every single member of the past three generations of Cosmo Entelecheia, and he doesn't agree with Negi's plan.

    Fate Averruncus

Negi's Arch-Enemy and the primary antagonist for most of the series. The dragon to Dynamis' big bad, though he's the stronger fighter. Basically emotionless if not vaguely polite outside of his conceit. Often defends with his shield magic rather than act offensively. Usually seeks to finish battles quickly by petrifying his opponents. Skilled in both Western and Eastern style spell-casting. Knows Supernatural Martial Arts.

Voiced by: Akira Ishida (Japanese), Chris Patton (Negima!)

  • And Then What?: After being activated, Fate went along with the whole mission just like the other constructs. But unlike them, he asked the Lifemaker what happens to him and his fellow constructs after everything was done. The Lifemaker had never thought about it, but decided they could do whatever they wanted, even go to Cosmo Entelecheia if they wished.
  • Anti-Villain: Notable even among the rest of Cosmo Entelecheia in that he can be very callous, however, unlike the others he appears to be the only full member doing it because he feels it is the morally correct decision, though at the same time he denies that it was a decision he made himself. He also takes in war orphans and sends them off to school unless they want to stay with him, of whom Shiori was the first.
  • Artificial Human: As with the other Averruncus units, he was created by the Lifemaker from scratch.
  • Berserk Button: He's been trying to save the world for nearly twenty years, with a god and who knows how many other super-powerful/intelligent beings. Do not think you can come up with a better answer than his in a day.
  • Big Damn Heroes: For a Self-stated Villain he is surprisingly fond of this when it comes to saving his future haremettes.
  • Bishounen: His teenage form, thanks to the age deceiving pills. Even lampshaded by the cheerleaders, down to his hair color.
  • Character Development: Seems Rakan's speech during their fight really did get to him. Tsukuyomi approves, because it's no fun to kill dolls.
    • He's a completely different character before and after his final battle with Negi. No matter what he says.
    • He goes so far as to BEING the substitute teacher in Mahora for Negi.
  • The Comically Serious: At one point, he gets his arm cut off by Tsukuyomi. He's not worried at all, since apparently, he can regenerate/reattach it perfectly well, but his subordinates promptly freak the eff out. How does he try to calm them down? Use his severed arm to pat the head of Koyomi. All with a rather dead expression on his face. It's rather hilarious. Two of the other girls actually point this out:
    Shirabe: F... Fate-sama actually attempting physical humor?
    Homura: Is that supposed to be funny?
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: While he almost certainly doesn't realize how it looks to outsiders due to his retarded emotional development, after his Heel–Face Turn he starts trying to keep 3A away from Negi and claiming that Negi already belongs to him.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Evangeline kicked his butt pretty easily, but didn't stick around long enough for a proper fight. Then later on he kicks Negi's butt.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Is a specialist of earth element magic to match the other three of the Averruncus series, which each have their own element as well.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Though he appears to be the boss, he is in fact considered Dynamis' subordinate. That said, Dynamis is still not the boss either. The Lifemaker is simply incapacitated. Still, Fate acts as a more prominent antagonist than Dynamis, to the point it's assumed he's the real boss for most the series.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Tertium.
  • Emotionless Boy: Justified since he's an Artificial Human. He's not completely emotionless, but the expression on his face rarely changes and he doesn't appear to know a lot about emotions.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Erases Secundum for terrorizing Shiori and erasing Shiori's big sister.
  • Evil Albino: A white-haired, pale-skinned guy who acts as one of the main villains of the series.
  • Fantastic Racism: Against the Mundus Magicus natives. He won't even acknowledge them as real and destroys them with a Lack of Empathy. Later subverted: He's trying to send everyone to a heaven like dimension, because they would end up annihilated if left to their fate. He views himself as a doll as well.
  • A Father to His Men: Fantastic Racism and emotionless-ness aside, Fate seems to genuinely care about his subordinates.
  • Final Boss Preview: Multiple times. First he shows up in the Kyoto arc and is clearly superior to Negi, but not amazingly so. Evangeline quickly forcing him to flee the battlefield only heightens the impression. But then he shows up at the gateport and utterly thrashes Ala Alba, showing that he's still way above Negi. After this comes another confrontation or two where Negi still can't match up. However, by the end of the arc, Negi is more-or-less evenly matched with him.
  • Flechette Storm: He can summon stone/metal spikes and blades.
  • Ghost Memory: Tertium has Primum's memories, but he is not the same individual.
  • A God Am I: He claims to have the power of those that created the Magical World. He even fulfills the trope of having a harem of devoted followers that may be considered brainwashed; as they became orphans due to the war that Fate helped to create.
  • The Heavy: The most prominently featured villain in the series, he did start off the events of the Magical World arc and defeating him is Negi's goal for most the series. Up until close the end, he's assumed to be the Big Bad.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Subverted, it was attempted but he survived and it was a successful Turn instead.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: He's a western-style mage, and evidently not all that good at Onmyodo (relatively speaking). When he switches over, the results are startling. Not quite a standard example, since he wasn't in any real trouble before the switch, and even after it he still wasn't trying particularly hard...
    Fate: ...Oops. Overdid it...
  • Ignore the Fanservice: Not flashed at all by his minions coming to serve him coffee while wearing maid outfits and Naked Aprons. If anything he tells them to quit it since he finds that kind of thing annoying.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: Fate does this sort of thing when he fights Negi, leading to some Foe Yay.
    Fate: "Beautiful. That's what I'm looking for, Negi-kun."
  • Instant Expert: Fate can 'install' new abilities, allowing him to learn a wide variety of skills instantly. Presumably it is also how he learned to fight. Kotaru lampshaded this when Fate demonstrated excellent singing (as in scoring 100% at the karaoke bar on the first try!).
  • Jerkass. Means well, but not exactly a people person. Does not even mean well when teaching Negi's class, meaning the jerkass is dominant.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Post Heel–Face Turn he tells Negi has more important things to do than deal with the love lives of his students. The jerk angle is played up, but he really is busy saving a billion people on a very tight schedule. And then the class goes completely overboard, attacks him, attempts to mind control him, attacks his allies and for no better reason than feeling they deserve his attention.
  • Kick the Dog: Stabbing Negi in the back during the Gateport Incident. Also, forcibly undoing Asuna's Laser-Guided Amnesia and causing her to go into an Heroic B.S.O.D. out of pure horror. Also, bitchslapping Nodoka after she points out the hypocrisy of his actions and then offers him a chance to join the good guys and come back to Earth with them.
  • Magic Knight: In contrast to the other Averrunci Fate is apparently much more oriented towards brawling and physical power.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: When Tsukuyomi cuts his arm off, he's really not concerned about it at all.
  • Meaningful Name: "Averruncus" is the Roman god of disaster aversion. Given how Fate views his own plans, this is quite appropriate.
  • Meaningful Rename: His chosen name "Fate" could also count.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: Decides that It's Personal after Negi becomes the first person to ever successfully hit him.
  • Moral Pragmatist: Negi defeats him by coming up with an alternate way of achieving his goals which is riskier but doesn't require any loss of life (and then beating on him until he sits down long enough to listen to it). In exchange, Negi agrees to help Fate's original plan if the new one doesn't work out, saying that he'll be glad to help but only if it's truly the only option.
  • More Than Mind Control: Unlike the other Averrunci, he was not programmed to follow Cosmo Entelecheia's goal absolutely, rather, the Lifemaker granted him free will. Instead, Tertium appears to have come to the conclusion that it is the best option. If Fate decides not to follow the Lifemaker's plan, he's free to do so.
  • Mundane Utility: Uses his ability to be calibrated to 'download' the ability to sing enka and thus cheat at karaoke.
  • Must Have Caffeine: Fate has always been a big coffee drinker and drinks about seven cups of coffee a day. It's also used in something of a sad scene in which Shiori's sister made him some apparently good coffee, he went back to work and had some terrible coffee and then when visiting her again found her wounded. She got Rewritten, he avenged her and noted that he won't be able to drink it anymore.
  • Mystical White Hair: His white hair hints at his origins as an Artificial Human.
  • Nietzsche Wannabe: Often asks the good guys why they even bother fighting, as everything they do is pointless.
  • No Social Skills: To a degree due to his being an Artificial Human. He decides to take over Negi's job as Class 3A's homeroom teacher to overcome this.
  • Nothing Personal: At first. It gets more and more personal each time he fights Negi, until later he's declared himself The Only One Allowed To Defeat Him and went batshit on Tsukuyomi when she suggested she might kill Negi herself.
  • Not So Stoic: Negi finds his Berserk Button in Chapter 298. It's Negi claiming that he can make a better future.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He's mainly known as "Fate", but his real name is Tertium.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Tertium attacks Quintum because Negi's students are his prey and he's royally pissed off. He became a threat again after he defeats Quintum.
  • Pass the Popcorn: Declares he will enjoy watching Negi struggle when his students 'attack' him for not being considerate enough.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: As powerful as Negi - stronger, even, for most of the story.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • So what does the Big Bad of the series do in his free time? Apparently he travels around saving war orphans, including all of his Pactio partners. Those who want to can work for him, and he insures that those who don't receive a proper education.
    • He also gets a pet the dog moment in a flashback to his first meeting with Shiori and her sister. He passes out due to slight malfunction in his body caused by not being calibrated to be loyal or driven like most of the Averrunci and is picked up. He is nursed back to health and bonds with them due to his love for coffee and Shiori's sister's talent for making it. The village they live in is later attacked by human soldiers and Shiori's sister is wounded and possibly raped. Secundum erases them leading to the pet the dog moment: Fate instantly decapitates him as he aims for Shiori. His obvious reasoning? While they may be going about trying to erase the world, there's no need to be complete, utter assholes about it like Secundum.
  • Psychotic Smirk: Boy howdy. Despite the trope below, what expressions Fate does allow on the lower half of his face are definitely evil (at least when he's not exasperated by the antics of either Rakan or his henchwomen).
  • Reality Warper: He holds one of seven of the Grandmaster Keys to the Magical World. Only the Great Grandmaster Key, which created the Mundus Magicus in the first place, is more powerful.
  • Reflectionless Useless Eyes: His shineless eyes are fitting since he's a mostly emotionless Artificial Human.
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: A male example but he fits the bill. White hair, pale skin, blue eyes, emotionless, No Social Skills, and an Artificial Human created by the main antagonist.
  • Replacement Scrappy: In-Universe: Takes over as Negi's substitute for teaching 3A while Negi is busy and the class hates him.
  • Sadist Teacher: Goes out of his way to make up rules on the spot and make his students break them at the same time, also known as entrapment when used by the police.
  • Secretly Wealthy: Hinted. He must have some serious dough if he can take in and care for 62 war orphan girls and send most of them to good private schools.
  • Serious Business: Coffee for good reasons.
  • Shoot the Medic First: He's given his minions permission to kill Nodoka and Konoka, even though he normally refuses to kill people from the Old World, as their respective mind-reading and healing abilities give Ala Alba a great advantage.
  • The Slow Walk: Brazen as he is, Fate likes to do this to his opponents to show how little he fears them.
  • The Stoic: His expression almost never changes, even when ripping the place apart.
  • Taken for Granite: One of his techniques is to turn people to stone. Fortunately, it can be reversed with healing magic... Unless he's using the permanent version, like he attempted to do with Nodoka (fortunately he was interrupted). This is what was done to Negi's village. Konoka, who has more potential as a healer than just about anyone else ever born, may someday be able to reverse it, if she trains really hard. She succeeds in the "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue.
  • Team Dad: To his haremettes, several of whom he seems to have literally raised.
  • Technically a Smile: When Fate attempts an Evil Laugh, it seriously freaks out Asuna, because "it doesn't touch his eyes".
  • Tsundere: Appears to be Type A towards Negi after his Heel–Face Turn. After deciding to side with Negi, his overtures of cooperation have generally been repeated statements along the lines of 'I'm not doing this for you or anything' and 'don't get the wrong idea, I'm just trying to save the world.'
  • Tsurime Eyes: His eyes are very sharp.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: He says that he's never needed training and is surprised at Negi's rapid improvement. He's been as strong as he is now since the day he was born and fights Negi multiple times, but each time it's a closer and closer fight until Negi is actually significantly stronger by their final fight. Negi actually has the advantage.
  • Villainous Crush: Great part of his behavior towards Negi is certainly suggestive of it. Tsukuyomi and even Dynamis call him out on it.
  • Villainous Rescue: Saves Negi in a The Only One Allowed to Defeat You moment.
  • Villain Teleportation: While not the only character to be capable of teleportation, he appears to be able to use it easier than anyone else and is thus seems to do it more than anyone. That said, it doesn't appear to be very useful as an actual combat technique, perhaps indicating that post destination arrival he is momentarily vulnerable or the technique has some other unavoidable downside.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He has white hair and serves as the main villain for a good part of the series.
  • Worthy Opponent: Tertium finally sees Negi as this.
  • You Are Number 6: Tertium means three. "Does...that mean there's a one and a two? Or a four or a five..."

    The Lifemaker

Former leader of Cosmo Entelecheia and designated Final Boss. All personal information unknown. Defeated at the end of the war 20 years ago, at which point they had a notable lack of a head, leading Rakan to assure Negi that they weren't around anymore.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Lifemaker's face is very androgynous and there's no way of telling the gender. A lot of the language used to refer to the Lifemaker has been vague.
  • The Archmage: When a society of considerably powerful wizards speaks of you as a god, you get this title.
  • Black Cloak: A bit of a Badass Long Robe.
  • Body Surf: They have used at least four bodies: A male one that Evangeline destroyed, the androgynous and very girly one that Nagi beat, Zect and finally Nagi himself. There are also the implications that the Lifemaker turned Evangeline into a shinso to possibly use her body at a later date.
  • Casting a Shadow: Every time we've seen the Lifemaker use actual offensive magic, it's always been massive barrages of black shadow beam things. On top of that, Dynamis confirmed Magia Erebea had characteristics similar to the Lifemaker's own magics.
  • Creating Life: The exact details are unclear, but they're not called the Lifemaker for nothing. They created the Magic World, and who knows what else besides.
  • Demonic Possession: Appears to have possessed Zect. In the present, the Lifemaker is now possessing Nagi.
  • Fallen Hero: Strongly implied. They're the one that created the Magical World and fits under the second distinction of the trope. Asuna describes them as 'a terrible and sorrowful person.' Indeed, they are the parent of the first mage in the Pactio system and founder of the line of Ostia, Amateru.note 
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Doesn't have much actual time on-screen, but is none the less responsible for most of the series events, though for most the series was assumed dead.
  • Hero Killer: Is by far the most powerful villain the series and their unique powers make it impossible for the inhabitants of Mundus Magicus to beat them, and even without that they almost single-handedly beat Ala Rubra.
  • Hidden Depths: The flashback near the end of Negi's fight with Fate puts the final fight with Nagi in a different light. Rather than looking down on humanity, the Lifemaker seems to have been rather fond of it, though still condescending. Chapters after this start putting shades of gray on both sides as the Lifemaker is rather callous, but Nagi has no plan and doesn't want to talk. And then the Lifemaker pulls the same stunt on Negi anyway.
  • I Control My Minions Through...: Agenda and Divine Right apply to all of them, inherent Mind Control for all of them except Tertium and Indoctrination for Tertium instead. And Nii wants revenge but otherwise doesn't seem to really care.
  • Immortality: Though it's currently unclear as to method or just how immortal. Doesn't seem to have been bothered by being destroyed. Twice.
  • In the Hood: Until their face was revealed in a flashback, they were always covered by a massive cloak.
  • Intrigued by Humanity: The Lifemaker seems to admire humanity.
  • Invincible Villain: While the heroes can stop or stall their plans, putting them down for good and keeping them from bodyjacking others is another story.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father:
    • They are Negi's distant ancestor on his mother's side.
    • In a way may apply to Evangeline as well, as Al implied that it was he who turned her into a vampire in the first place. Confirmed as of chapter 332 when they call Evangeline "my daughter".
    • This is now a literal example with the revelation that the Lifemaker is currently possessing Nagi.
  • The Man Behind the Man: The real supreme leader of Cosmo Entelecheia. Fate and Dynamis are merely following their wishes and acting as stand-ins while the Lifemaker is absent.
  • The Older Immortal: 2600 years old as compared to Evangeline's 600ish and Zect's vague 'couple centuries.'
  • Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous: A god-like being and very androgynous in appearance. Given that they repeatedly change bodies regardless of gender, it is likely that the Lifemaker is not only ambiguously gendered, but perhaps no longer really has one.
  • Physical God: We are not sure exactly what the Lifemaker is, but consider these: An immortal spiritual being that can resurrect at will, capable of creating whole worlds and lifeforms, created a paradise for them, created powerful beings that acts as their messenger, terrifying destructive power, their descendants became the ruling dynasty of said created world... Their divine credentials are obvious enough that not even narrative texts shy away from calling the Lifemaker "God".
  • Projected Man: The Lifemaker appears to have showed up on the battlefield in the form of a projection reminiscent of Albireo. Fortunately, this made them intensely vulnerable to Anti-Magic and led to the projection being destroyed and the Lifemaker forced to leave the battlefield. Current status of the real body is unknown.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Their real body is implied to be sealed under the World Tree at Mahora. However, they're able to briefly project themself in the battlefield before being taken down by Negi and Asuna.
  • Shout-Out: They and their power are named after the James P. Hogan novel Code of the Lifemaker.
  • Trial by Friendly Fire: A villainous version: they shoot through Primum to hit Nagi, though Primum survives. And then through Fate to hit Negi.
  • Ultimate Evil: Always appears as an ominous figure covered completely by a Black Cloak, just to let you know they are bad news. In Fate's flashback though, the Lifemaker finally gains a face and turns out not seeming that wicked after all.


Powerful shadow using mage allied with Fate. Previously, he fought against Ala Rubra in the war 20 years ago, and currently views himself as The Rival to the new generation. The oldest surviving member of Cosmo Entelecheia, he appears both weary of it and quite enthusiastic at the same time.
  • Mask Power: Even Fate's minions hadn't seen him without his mask until Chapter 301. Turns out, he's actually quite handsome.
  • Meaningful Name: "Dynamis" apparently comes from a similar Greek root that can mean "ability", "power" or "I am able/powerful", depending on the context. As a bonus, he is not referred to by a number-like name, indicating that unlike the Averrunci or other series, he's unique.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Dynamis' One-Winged Angel form can grow (and shoot) hands at will.
  • Not So Stoic: For all the imposing appearance and constant icy calm of his early appearances, in private he's actually... kinda weird.
  • One-Winged Angel: Dynamis Mighty General Battle Mode! And it's indeed awesome.
  • The Rival: He appears to see himself as the Worthy Opponent to Ala Alba as a whole.
  • Running Gag: Just like his fellow shadow armor user, he gets naked mid fight. Unlike her, he does it willingly to change armor and it doesn't slow him down. Still hilarious though.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": While his name is spelled "Dynamis", the katakana for it reads "Dyunamisu". Scanlation groups claim that this is pronounced "Dunamis", despite "Dynamis" being the official spelling.
  • Xanatos Gambit: During Negi's attack on Cosmo Entelecheia's base to interrupt the ritual. How so? All he has to do is get in their way, despite being ridiculously overpowered. The Fatettes tie up his allies while Negi beats the crap out of him, assuming he's won. Once that happens Dynamis fires a shot at Negi that will either A) Do significant damage if he takes it, or B) Take out several of his allies, who can't heal from it. When it results in option A, Negi goes berserk, causing the magical overdose thing to finally kick in for real and he petrifies. Building from there, with Ala Alba's only top tier fighter down it doesn't matter what Ala Alba does. He assumes (incorrectlynote ) they can't take Fate, but admits that their plan might still work... but he had already stalled enough that the others in the Averruncus series have woken up. And the whole time, he's Trolling away. May double as Xanatos Speed Chess.

    The Graveyard Keeper

Probably the least known of Fate's allies/minions. Her contribution to the plot is minimal, with the Gateport attack being her only major time of action. Not much is known about her, not even by most of her allies.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: First appeared back at the Gateport, over a hundred chapters before showing up again.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": She's only known as "The Graveyard Keeper", and we don't even know what that is supposed to mean.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: Played with in 314: she's mostly obscured, but she has kinked eyebrows like Arika and a twintail like Asuna.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Has twintails just like Asuna.
  • In the Back: She grabs Sextum's core from the back and threatens to kill her unless she lets Negi go.
  • In the Hood: She always appears wearing a hood.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Called Negi her descendant.
  • Older Than She Looks: She looks like a little girl, but she's at least old enough to be Negi's ancestor.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: She looks quite a bit like Asuna and Arika. Negi assumed she was related to them in some way and she called him her descendant, but the relation is never made clear.
  • Unusual Eyebrows: Has kinked eyebrows, just like Arika.
  • Villainous Rescue: She unexpectedly appears to save Negi and his friends from Dynamis and Sextum.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After halting Dynamis and Sextum, she doesn't appear ever again. The series ended and absolutely nothing concrete was ever shown or explained about her or her whereabouts.
  • Wild Card: Implied. She neutralizes Sextum to save Negi and his friends and decides to "bet on the boy" after hearing he has came up with a plan to save the world. Dynamis calls her out on her betrayal, but the Graveyard Keeper denies to have ever been on Cosmo Entelecheia's side.
    Graveyard Keeper: "When did I ever say I was on your side?"

The mage who filled the position of the water mage in Cosmo Entelecheia twelve years before the story. Appears to be the same model as Fate's two bodyguards from the war.

  • Cleavage Window: She wears a dress with an opening showing off most of her chest.
  • The Faceless: Her entire face has been left heavily shadowed even when seen completely. Her eyes also have a strange appearance. It is possible that her face just looks like this, though.
  • Making a Splash: The water mage of Cosmo Entelecheia twelve years before the story.
  • Posthumous Character: Presumed.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is as long as her body.
  • Unusual Ears: Or horns. Whatever it is on her head.

The mage who filled the position of the fire mage in Cosmo Entelecheia twelve years before the story. Appearance does not seem to correspond with any previous models, though likes the others her name still indicates her true nature. Oddly, though, unlike the latin names of the others, hers is Japanese.

  • Oral Fixation: In casual moments she always seems to be eating something.
  • Playing with Fire: The fire mage of Cosmo Entelecheia twelve years before the story.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches past her waist.
  • Revenge: Does not appear to care about what CE is doing at present, but bears a heavy grudge against Rakan and speaks of him in an incredibly rude manner. Reasons still unknown but suspected to be due to Rakan killing the previous CE fire mage, to which she may be related.

Averruncus units

A series of Artificial Humans who were created by the Lifemaker in order to serve him. Fate, also known as Tertium, is the third of them.

The first Averruncus, activated sometime before the start of the war. Fate's predecessor as the Earth mage of Cosmo Entelecheia.

  • Dishing Out Dirt: Tertium's predecessor in this regard.
  • The Dragon: Had this role to the Lifemaker during the war between CE and Ala Rubra.
  • Posthumous Character: Died in the battle against The Thousand Master 20 years before the series began.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Subverted. While certainly callous to shoot through your own minion, it seems it was just to have an easier shot. Primum lived through it and the Lifemaker (having created him) would know he'd survive it. Primum died instead due to being crushed by a falling rock.

The second Averruncus, activated four years after the end of the war. He's the most emotional of any Averruncus seen yet, displaying a kind of enthusiastic zeal for Cosmo Entelecheia's mission.

  • Ax-Crazy: Like Quartum, he seems to enjoy his job a little too much.
  • Blow You Away: Was an Averruncus of Wind.
  • Break the Haughty: Considers himself superior to the Mundus Magicus inhabitants and normal humans His on-panel fights consist of fighting Nag, and when he returns in the present, Jack and Evangelin, both of which result in him getting his ass kickedl
  • Bullying a Dragon: Not actual bullying, but Secundum is not the brightest bulb in the drawer. Yes, that's right, scoff at the Thousand. Master. The guy who not only put the beat down on Primum but actually took out your boss once.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's constantly punched in the face and thrown around in a Keitaro-like undignified way. And he deserves all of it.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's a complete jerk with no apparent redeeming qualities, but he's quite friendly. For a certain definition of friendly, anyway.
  • Genre Blindness: When faced with an opponent with so many titles to their name, you DON'T underestimate them!
  • Hot-Blooded: Tertium even asks him why he's so enthusiastic. Then asks his boss. Apparently the Lifemaker (possibly influenced by his fight against Nagi) dialed all of his parameters up to the maximum. He admits this was probably a mistake.
  • Jerkass: He gets to be listed here as well as in the shared traits thing because he is just that much of an asshole.
  • Kick the Dog: Doesn't seem to understand that he doesn't need to scare the hell out of the people he erases.
  • Losing Your Head: Decapitated by Tertium as he tries to Rewrite Shiori, at which point he starts raging at Tertium and is apparently shut up by Tertium just blowing up the head. Second part presumably justified by the Averruncus series not being built quite like humans are.
  • Moral Myopia: He honestly seems to think he's the good guy.
  • Posthumous Character: Killed by Tertium long before the story. However, see the top of the page.
  • Psycho Electro: When his Ax-Craziness is combined with his love of electricity, you get this trope.
  • Shock and Awe: Besides his Blow You Away powers, he had electricity attacks.
  • Sociopathic Soldier: Think a more affable Quartum or a less crazy Tsukuyomi. Unclear if type one or two.

The fourth Averruncus. Quartum is the Averruncus of Fire. His personality is almost alike to Secundum.
  • Ax-Crazy: Quartum, unlike the other Averruncus series, is shown to actively enjoy murder and expresses disappointment that he's forbidden from killing humans. He still has some fun though.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He and Quintum are both defeated in the span of a single chapter each despite supposedly being as powerful as Fate.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Quartum after being subject to a Curb-Stomp Battle from Negi. Oddly, Negi's statement actually implies it's not intended to be a lethal blow. And it wasn't.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Quartum rips Chachamaru in half and then continues beating on her and stabbing her through the chest, saying something to the effect of 'Turn off, doll. Turn off!' This did not win him many fans.
  • Playing with Fire: The Averruncus of Fire.
  • Slasher Smile: The only one to show visible emotion right off the back is Quartum and his grin after chopping Chachamaru in half.
  • Squishy Wizard: Quartum is absolutely destroyed when Negi draws the fight into close quarters. Judging by Quintum's statement about Fate being specialized in physical combat, it's likely that the Averrunci all have specific strengths and weaknesses.

The fifth Averruncus. Quintum is the second Averruncus of Wind. He has the same hairstyle as Secundum, the first Averruncus of Wind. Quintum's personality is very similar to Fate's personality when he first appeared.

  • Blow You Away: An Averruncus of Wind.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He and Quartum are both defeated in the span of a single chapter each despite supposedly being as powerful as Fate.
  • Foil: Quintum seems to be a foil to both Tertium and Secundum, behaving similarly to Tertium at the beginning of the series and being a stoic wind and lightning user, unlike say Secundum.
  • Shock and Awe: Has lightning attacks.
  • The Stoic: Unlike the maniacal glee that Quartum expresses, Quintum is calm, bored looking and simply dutiful. When Fate begins absentmindedly beating his face while ruminating on the differences between them his composure vanishes.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Quintum decides that if someone can catch your most powerful spell, it's a good idea to engage them in close combat. Fate proves the foolishness of this.

The sixth Averruncus. Sextum is the Averruncus of Water and the only female of the Averruncus series, leading to many jokes about how unlike Quartum and Quintum attacking opponents immediately, she heads straight for Negi.

Fate's Adorable Evil Minions

Fate's assumed Pactio partners. Basically an Amazon Brigade group of Evil Counterpart Psycho Rangers, all of them being Dark Magical Girls that Fate personally recruited since they were all war orphans with no place to go.
  • Adorable Evil Minions: They are a group of cute girls working for the main villain Fate.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: They all have a tragic past caused by the war.
  • I Owe You My Life: The reason behind their Undying Loyalty to Fate. They are all war orphans whom he took in and cared for following the last war. He offered them the chance for a normal life, with enough money to put them through good schooling, and they refused, preferring to aid him directly in his own plans.
  • Morality Pets: They serve as a source of Fate's Pet the Dog moments.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Most of them are only known by their code-names. The real names of only two out of five girls are revealed.
  • Rescue Romance: They all have romantic feelings for Fate because he saved their lives at some point.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Fate. All of them are willing to follow him everywhere and do whatever they can to help him.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: They all vanish right before Negi's final confrontation with Fate, and they are never shown or mentioned again. It's specially baffling in the case of Shiori, who had also become one of Negi's own Ministra.


A girl with an artifact that allows her to copy all aspects of her target (both mind and appearance). Using her power, she infiltrates Negi's group under another identity. She comes from a race of mind-readers, able to read the minds of those whom they touch. Her real name is Luna.
  • Anti-Villain: The most sympathetic of the girls.
  • Becoming the Mask: While her Signum Biolegens supposedly makes her more-or-less a sleeper agent (which is in and of itself a subversion of this trope, as she truly believes she's Asuna when posing as her) with added control (she can apparently switch at will), Shiori became attracted to Negi on her own accord after witnessing his kindness. Infiltrating a group held together by a Chick Magnet might not have been the best of ideas...
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her hometown was attacked by humans who severely injured her and her sister. Then she had to see her sister die at the hands of Secundum.
  • Defecting for Love: Once she starts falling for Negi, she joins his side and tries for a peaceful resolution to the conflict between him and Tertium.
  • Go Through Me: Tries this on Negi to stop him from doing something he'll regret later.
  • Hair Decorations: Has a cute bow hairband. It probably is her sister's.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's blonde and despite working for a villain, she's a really sympathetic and polite girl.
  • Master of Disguise: Her artifact turns her into a perfect copy of someone, right down to their memories and personality.
  • The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: Thanks to her artifact's ability.
  • Morality Pet: Sure ALL of Fate's minions are these, but it is more true with her as how Tertium was given more free will by Primum, the same is true between Shiori and Tertium. The Tear Jerker backstory also helped out with this.
  • Pointy Ears: She has long, elf-like ears.


A demi-human girl who uses a violin artifact as her weapon. Her real name is Brigitte.
  • Affably Evil: She compliments her enemies when they survive her artifact's abilities, and is all-around the most well-mannered of the girls beside Shiori.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Being possibly the most amiable of the group besides Shiori does not stop her from holding back no less than six opponents by herself, fuelled only by sheer determination.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her tribe was hunted, due to racial conflicts between humans and demihumans. Seemingly the only survivor in her tribe, Shirabe was cornered by some hunters who wanted to sever her horns and sell her into slavery. Fate and Shiori then appeared to rescue her.
  • Defeat by Modesty: Due to a certain Boisterous Bruiser Panty Thief.
  • Determinator: She shows her strong determination when getting Asuna back to the altar despite being ridiculously outnumbered, outgunned, and with all the odds against her.
  • The Dragon: She seems to be the most highly trusted of the girls by Fate, given that she's the one performing the ritual while Fate ensures there are no interruptions.
  • Dreadful Musician: Her violin apparently doesn't sound all that great. Doesn't stop it from being extremely deadly.
  • Elegant Classical Musician: Her artifact takes the form of a violin, which she plays to produce various effects.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Her eyes are always closed shut.
  • Green Thumb: She can control plant life due to a racial ability.
  • Horned Humanoid: Said horns also provide her with her magical power, and can also presumably be severed and melted down into a supposed miracle elixir.
  • Instrument of Murder: Her violin.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Her music can shatter stone.
  • Mission Control: While the other girls were fighting, Shirabe was helping Fate use Asuna's Anti-Magic to reset the Magical World.
  • Musical Assassin: Her weapon is a violin-like artifact which can produce sound waves that destroy everything in her sight.
  • Pointy Ears: She has pointy, elf-like ears.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches all the way down her ankles.
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: She has what looks like antlers on the sides of her head.
  • Undying Loyalty: Given Chapter 320, she's possibly even more loyal than Homura.
  • Villainous Valor: Frankly, Shirabe felt more like the good guy in her confrontation with Negi's group: Ridiculously outnumbered, outgunned, tragic backstory revealed, all the odds against her. You might even be glad to see that she manages to accomplish her goal of getting Asuna back to the altar by neglecting her own safety, before remembering that she's the villain here.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has green hair.


A fire spirit girl. She appears composed, but has a short-tempered personality and tends to look down on others. As a fire spirit, she can set anything and herself on fire.


A cat girl. Her artifact can control time; however, Koyomi rarely can give it any use since she is easily embarassed and distracted from using her artifact when upset.
  • Time Master: Her artifact can stop or speed-up the flow of time, but it hasn't seen much use.


A dragon folk girl. She seems to team up with Koyomi, since their combined artifacts represent time and space. Koyomi is able to stop time long enough for Tamaki to trap people within her artifact.
  • Achilles' Heel: She has to stay in her artifact's dimension to maintain it, making it possible to find and defeat her. Not easy, but when your opponent is Jack Rakan...

Non-Member Associates

These individuals are those who were either hired by Cosmo Entelecheia for a specific task or are assisting them of their own free will for some other reason.


Ax-Crazy, Psycho for Hire Shinmeiryuu who plays the part of Setsuna's Evil Counterpart/Worthy Opponent (amongst other things). Likes to use summoned demons in place of Shikigami. Partial to Gothic Victorian clothes that inevitably get destroyed in combat. Enjoys smiling and laughing during battle (especially against strong women and young-looking boys).

Voiced by: Hiromi Tsunakake (Negima!), Rie Kugimiya (OVA) (Japanese), Samantha Inoue-Harte (Negima!)

  • Licking the Blade: She does this before her fight against Setsuna. She does so while referring to Setsuna as "delicious" and asking for satisfaction, all the while drooling in a woozy state of carnal bloodlust.
  • Loves the Sound of Screaming: Are you really surprised with how crazy this girl is?!
    Setsuna: (after being stabbed by Tsukuyomi) Haaaaah! Uugh!
    Tsukuyomi: Ahaa Ahh ♥ What a wonderful voice you have, Senpai~.
  • Mad Love: This Ax-Crazy Psycho Lesbian creeps the hell out of her dear Setsuna-senpai with her disturbing "affections" and Tsukuyomi always looks forward for her senpai to get her "satisfied", whether Setsuna wants it or not.
  • Meaningful Name: Shares her name with the Shinto moon deity. The male Shinto moon deity.
  • Meganekko: She's Blind Without 'Em.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: She once tries to kill Setsuna's beloved Konoka.
  • Mythology Gag: The sword she has is the exact same sword from Love Hina (she stole it).
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: You know it's true.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Setsuna finally defeats her, it really shows on her face.
  • Psycho for Hire: Dynamis is annoyed that he had to resort to hiring someone like her. All she wants to do is murder people in satisfying ways.
    Tsukuyomi: There is no meaning in this world. I seek naught but blood and carnage.
  • Psycho Lesbian: Her obsession for Setsuna is terrifying.
  • Psycho Supporter: Nominally a supporter of Cosmo Entelecheia, but far too psychotic to truly be on anyone's "side".
  • Psychotic Smirk: Frequently happens when she's got her Black Eyes of Crazy going on.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: She seemed to be this at first, being polite and playful and leaving the battlefield with a smile (and even thanking Kaede for their battle) as soon as she was told to do so. Then Flanderization kicked in...
  • Rapunzel Hair: Down to her waist.
  • Sadist: She finds way too much pleasure in making others suffer.
  • Sempai/Kohai: She calls Setsuna her senpai.
  • Sex Is Violence: Gets turned on while (and by) fighting Setsuna, Fate, and now Negi. She's in the page image for good reason.
  • She Who Fights Monsters: The Cool Sword is an artifact of corruption at least.
  • Shipper on Deck: She seemed very pleased when she pointed out their Foe Yay to Negi and Fate.

    Poyo Rainyday 

A high-class demon girl allied with Cosmo Entelecheia, who seeks to prevent the events that lead to the apocalyptic future of Chao Lingshen. While she personally has no stake in this future, as a powerful entity she nonetheless feels obligated to do what she can to avert the upcoming crisis.

She initially appears in the Gravekeeper's Palace, and uses the artifact Magic Lantern Circus to halt the Ala Alba's progress. When Negi breaks free and announces that he has found his own solution for the Magical World's crisis she, like the rest of Cosmo Entelecheia, doesn't believe him.

    Graf Wilhelm Josef von Herrmann

One of the demons who attacked Negi's hometown back when he was still a kid. He came to Mahora with the Slime Sisters not only to seek out Negi himself under orders from Cosmo Entelecheia (or at least, that's what Donnet reports in Yuna's day in the spotlight), but also to know how Negi has improved.
  • Anti-Magic: It was due to Asuna wearing a device that makes him immune to magic. When the other girls take it off, he can be affected.
  • Badass Grandpa: One of the oldest of asskickers in the early-manga.
  • Bishounen Line: Inverted. He starts off with his old man form then goes demon form after he reveals his true form to Negi, unlocking his Berserk Button.
