TASHA GODSPELL Nickname: Magic Marksman Birthday: April 3rd Age: 16 Blood Type: O Height: 5' 7" Weight: 126 lb Race: Human Class: Black Supporter: Halloween
Tasha Godspell is a Black Class WH and the second disciple of Edea Florence. At the beginning of the series, his goal is to find his sister Aria, have her remove the curse she placed upon him and take her home to their mother. Obsessed with making money, Tasha's a proud swindler and rather stingy. His capacity for kindness only seems to surface in the company of women. The Great Witches East and North consider him instrumental to their respective plans, as either the savior or destroyer of humanity.His Magic Bullet Gun can fire three types of ammunition: Piercing, Grenade, and Tranquilizer. His Arcane Desert Eagle Custom can fire the equivalent of 10,000 bullets in a single shot. In addition to mana bullets, Tasha can also fit standard bullets into his guns. His Dimensional Gallery stores his guns and regulates the flow of mana to his body. He later overrides its limiter to achieve White Class strength at the cost of his sanity.
Awesome, but Impractical: His Mana Gun Desert Eagle Custom can fire the force of 10,000 normal mana bullets in one shot. The downside? He can only fire it 3 times before his arm breaks from the recoil.
Berserk Button: Never speak ill of Tasha's deceased master Edea, his white hair, or money. If you get in his way of saving Aria or try to take his Halloween away, he'll fill you with mana bullets. Never insult the wonder and glory that is money, for it makes the world beautiful and worth living in.
Bodyguard Crush: Tasha cares deeply for Mordred, is as willing and able to protect as she is him and cares more than anything about her happiness, but he is unsure if the feelings he has for her can be described or simplified as 'love'.
Celibate Hero: Tasha is well aware of every woman that has a crush on him and acts kindly towards all of them, but makes a clear point to not get into any kind of relationship with anyone.
Tasha:HAHAHA!! This incredible power... Was this it... This must have been how Aria must have felt. This amazing feeling...!
Heroic RROD: Because Tasha is utilizing the mana reserves of his master, Edea, a powerful S-Class witch, his body cannot handle the magical output and begins to physically break down and drives him insane. The only solution is for someone with a similar mana type to save him using their energy. But when the only known person is deceased...
Person of Mass Destruction: Using Moirai's Confinement, a single bullet destroys a mountain and his following attack completely decimates the landscape.
Field Power Effect: By using the entirety of his Dimension Gallery Pouch, Tasha can invoke a battlefield where he can control the path of his mana bullets after they are shot. During the Song of Moirae, his control with this technique can increase the area of effect to a tremendous amount with the added bonus of having falling snow that drains the mana of whoever it touches.
Incompletely Trained: Ryu Hwan claims that Tasha being weaker than him is perfectly reasonable since he received their master's full training while Tasha's training was incomplete. Ryu Hwan takes it upon himself to complete Tasha's training.
Jerkass With A Heart Of Gold: Beneath his truly horrible attitude and jerk ass to an extreme tendencies, he is a a nice guy... Sometimes... Really just hope you're not Tarras or Cooga. Or you either take his money or insult it.
Knight Templar Big Brother: The only reason he became a WH was so he could find Aria, revert her back to a human, and bring her back home. Everything else, even his life, be damned.
Tasha: You still don't get it. My life isn't as precious as Aria's.
Living MacGuffin: He can either serve as the key to North's plan to wipe out humanity, or to stopping it and saving humanity. According to Aria, he has no choice in the matter. He's Exactly What It Says on the Tin: he's just a key and a tool.
Madness Mantra: He's really hates how he couldn't stop Aria from becoming a witch.
Tasha: I couldn't protect her. I couldn't protect her. I couldn't protect her...
Worf Effect: Despite being an established Badass, as the series goes on, majority of Tasha's fight losses against Ryu Hwan, Varete, Lancelot, and East show that Tasha has a long way to go before being strong enough to fight strongest threats in the WH universe.
Click here to see Halloween's true form
Tasha's supporter. It takes the form of a doll with a pumpkin's head and fights using two swords, Yin and Yang. Though loyal to its master, Halloween isn't above attacking him in retaliation for an insult. It originally sported two seals in the form of padlock necklaces, one of which was broken during a skirmish with Ryu Hwan. In human form, Halloween summons her blades from the clothes issued to her at HQ. According to East, has the potential to become stronger than Varete or Ryuhwan. Has clearly and openly admitted she is in love with Tasha.
Berserk Button: Harming Tasha Godspell is a sure fire way to get cut down.
Bodyguard Crush: Has outright stated that she is in love with Tasha and doesn't even care if her feelings are simply a product of her contract.
Bodyguarding a Badass: Tasha has no qualms about getting his hands dirty. Halloween is just his extra muscle for when he doesn't want to.
Chainmail Bikini: Her uniform. Handwaved as "allowing her complete freedom of movement" and occasionally lampshaded. Justified by the fact that, as a supporter, all she really needs to heal from damage is some mana from Tasha.
I Don't Want to Ruin Our Friendship: Played with. She has no angst over her feelings for Tasha and simply does not show her love because of Tasha's habit of shying away from people who seek a relationship with him. She is entirely happy with the knowledge that as his supporter, she'll always be the closest person to him and be one of the few people to see the real him.
Restraining Bolt: Her seals around her neck are proof of her contract with Tasha and to limit to her power. When the seals are broken, it is implied that Halloween with return to her former strength as Mordred but will also sever the contract she has with Tasha, something he's bent on not doing.
Royal Blood: She is the daughter of Queen Guinevere and King Arthur.
She Was A Gift: From Edea Florence to Tasha. One of the only things left to him since her death, hence why he will not let her go.
XING BAIRONG Nickname: God-Speed Fist Birthday: April 3rd Age: 20 Blood Type: AB Height: 6'1'' Weight: 148 lb Race: Human Class: Black
Xing is a Black Class WH, known for his superhuman speed and shameless skirt-chasing. He dislikes the company of any man except Tasha, claiming to prefer women with 'sexy bodies'. His hobby is collecting sunglasses.His real name is Prince Yue of Bairong, identical triplet to princes Lee and Xing. He was named the Emperor of Bairong, but exchanged names and lives with the mild-mannered Xing to pursue his dream of roaming the world. Three years later (present timeline), he returns to find the Empire has fallen to a now-evil Lee, not to mention that Xing is not happy with his departure.
The Ace: In his younger years, he thwarted an assassination attempt on his life by not one but, two of his brother's teachers which consisted two groups of the most expert martial art priests in the Bairong Empire, the two teachers, and defeated his brother Lee in a one on one confrontation directly afterwards.
If It's You, It's Okay: In the French publication, Xing cheerfully explains to Tasha that "I've never liked men, but know what ? I'm willing to make an exception just for you~ !", securing him a spot in the heart of the yaoi fangirls upon his very first appearance. (Not in Tasha's, though.)
Lightning Bruiser: Fast enough to take down a group of enemies at the toss of a coin and strong enough that most confrontations end in just one blow.
TARRAS DOBERG Nickname: Blessing of the Earth Birthday: Dec 20 Age: 20 Blood Type: A Height: 5'11'' Weight: 143 lb Race: Human Class: Black
Tarras is a Black Class WH, he has power over Earth and is seen as egotistical and refers to himself with the suffix -nim (Korean equivalent of -sama). He is skilled and while under the control of a witch even Tasha and Xing could not defeat him. His personality constantly antagonizes many people, which has Tasha tease him by calling him an extra and noting how he was defeated by his little sister, being controlled by a Witch and owes him half his paycheck. He was suppose to be an unnamed extra according to the author, but they expanded his role. His hobbies include gardening, he likes receiving praise and the plants he grows and hates being ignored.His sister is Tania, the S-Class Administrator of the North and the only person he fears.
Butt Monkey: He's mocked by his own sister, teammates, personal assistant, and the Witch who tramples his attempts at a Crowning Moment Of Awesome. The author lampshades Tarras' Buttmonkey status in an omake, where Tarras mopes in a corner about his lack of good scenes. If you revisit Monica's arc, where at least Xing respects him, you'll see just how much of a Buttmonkey Tarras has become.
Peek-a-Bangs: Tarras has got one over his left eye, which has earned the loving Fan Nickname of Emo Haircut. Not that you can blame anyone with cover art like this. Tanya's hairstyle mirrors his, hiding her right eye.
The S-Class Administrator of the North and Taras' older sister. She is considerably stronger, able to use Flower of Earth (a much, much bigger one) without a chant, only tapping the ground with her staff. Tania interrupts Tasha's fight with Lancelot and forces him to retreat without much effort. Tasha said he and Taras were a team, which prompted Tania to give him a lollipop. She mistook Tasha as a girl at first.
Attention Whore: Runs in the Doberg family line. When Tasha turned to look at Cooga for a spilt second, she responded by sending Cooga flying with a rock pillar and turning him into a basic smear on the wall meters away, then tells Tasha that she should never look away from her.
Initially a pickpocket who stole Tasha's suitcase, Monica is a Black Class WH whose supporter specializes in healing and defensive magic. She awakened as a witch during one of Tasha's hunts and aided him in battle. After the townsfolk shun her for her newfound powers, Tasha brings her to HQ, where Eclipse Shadenon takes her as a student. Until she was Demoted to Extra, she seemed to be Tasha's Designated Love Interest.
Anti-Magic: Can cast Dispel, which can render a target untouchable by means of magic but can only be used on up to three people, one for each eye.
Break the Cutie: Her best friend was one of many killed by a witch who was using humans as a means of regaining mana in her village. After the detainment of said witch and when the fact that she, herself, is a witch is revealed, the villagers she just saved quickly come to the conclusion that she was the infamous witch and try to stone her to death.
Catch and Return: Her supporter, Parvati, has the ability to absorb attacks and send it back upon command.
Sociopathic Hero: Only joined the WH to primarily hurt witches and isn't subtle to direct this behavior towards his fellow witch colleagues.
Words Blondy von Worth
WORDS BLONDY von WORTH Nickname: Unknown Birthday: August 29th Age: 23 Blood Type: AB Height: 6' 2" Weight: 149 lb Race: Human Class: Black Magic Specialty: Gravity Supporter: None
A WH who is teamed with Cooga and is often seen by Cooga's side. His special ability is the manipulation of gravity, particularly that of objects and people. He is fond of wine and reading and is somewhat sophisticated. He has a contempt and dislike for all witches and supporters and is openly hostile towards witches who have sided with the WHs. It is later revealed however that he is actually working for North as a spy.
Badass: In his fight with Tasha, it's revealed that while Tasha is ranked the 5th strongest A-Class, he's ranked #1.
An S-Class WH, said to be the strongest of his kind. He keeps watch on Tasha as per his promise to Tasha's master, Edea. After sending Tasha and friends on their mission to Bairong and Britain, he confronts the East Witch who has been spying on the Witch Hunters. He fights her and nearly gets killed, but Palgeuk interrupts and thus both stop fighting. Vihyungrang is currently away training.
Attack Reflector: By utilizing his Earth Phantom Maiden, he can reflect attacks from the likes of Surtr.
Badass: The strongest WH alive behind Edea Florence and shown onscreen, capable of disarming the most powerful A class WH, forcing one of the Four Legendary Witches into becoming serious, and is considered as strong as two White Class WH.
Big Good: Being the strongest WH automatically ranks him as this. Until he goes off for training.
The Omniscient: She can only see the past and present of those who she is in direct physical contact with and she can gather information from anyone in the world to display it via screens in the WH headquarters.
Not So Omniscient After All: Though her future sight only works on people who won't be affected by any of the Four Great Witches in the future. in addition, a mere D-Class WH is actually able to hack into her information network, screwing up Tasha's plan to leave WH with Halloween.
Ms. Fanservice: Her true form, which is actually a very voluptuous woman.
Prescience Is Predictable: The main reason of her continuous cooperation with Tasha is because she finds knowing everything to be boring and Tasha's unpredictable future involving the Four Great Witches piques her curiosity.
Elmar: Stupid question. Before I am a witch I am the knight of the Clark Du Chevaliers and a B-Class WH. Elmar Hyancith! As a knight I complete the task given to me with honor. Even if I shall lose my life!
Bloody Murder: Her Tyrfing is a sword that draws her blood and creates a blade from it.
Break the Cutie: Back when she was a B-Class WH, she watched her entire team get wiped out by a single witch, before being saved by Xing and Tarras.
Combat Medic: Heavy on the medic side. Her healing magic is so advanced she can save several A-Class WH from the attacks of the likes of Varette. Varette even compliments her on the area of effect and potency of her healing skill.
EAST Nickname: Great Witch of the East Race: Witch Supporter: Surtr
East is a powerful witch which interferes with the North Witch's plan, though her intentions are unknown. She was once one of the four great witches.One of the great 4 witches, she guides Tasha and protects him, urging him to get stronger for her own goals. Her current form is smaller than before, stating she has lost a lot of her power, but unlike most witches she doesn't need a hat to store her mana. She also knew Tasha's teacher and Ryuhwan. She asks Ryuhwan to make a contract with her in exchange for the name of the one who killed his teacher; she also knows Halloween's true identity. She reveals to Vihyungrang how Tasha is needed by both her and North, but views him as a tool and key that has no purpose once used and he'll disappear in the end. This leads to a battle between the two.Her supporter is the Fiery Earth of Musphelheim's King, Surtr. He's so powerful even Ryuhwan stated he had no chance against it in his released limiter form. He had to be supplied with Mana to fight Vihyungrang, which drastically changed the flow of the battle.
I Am Not Left-Handed: Her Surtr is easily taken down by Vihyungrang, but then she actually supplies Surtr with mana, and the table's turned.
Lightning Bruiser: Surtr is strong enough to defeat most of East's foes, fast enough to surprise the reflexes of an A class WH, and hard enough that most attacks either bounce off or shatter completely against his skin. All without being supplied mana. When he issupplied with mana though...
Nice Hat: Though this trope applies to all witches, East's case is rather special: Her hat is entirely decorative, as she doesn't need a hat to generate mana.
Offscreen Moment of Awesome: She once fought Varette to a draw, with Varette suffering at least some visble Clothing Damage. We are talking about the same Varette who has yet to suffer so much as a scratch from all her other opponents.
ARIA GODSPELL Nickname: Red Witch Birthday: March 14th Age: 14 Blood Type: B Height: 4'11'' Weight: 84 lb Race: Witch Supporter: Aegis
She is known as the Red Witch to many people, may be evil on the outside but once her powers are drained due to excessive battle, her true emotions begin to show. Mentally fragile because of what she did to innocent people and her family, she thinks there is no place for her to go home to anymore and thus stayed on the Witches side.
Beneath the Mask: When her mana starts to run low Aria's true emotions leak out, showing that beneath all the Cute and Psycho is a girl horrified of the tremendous death and destruction she causes and a desire to go home back to her family.
Blood Knight: Aria likes slaughtering and a good fight a bit too much for a girl her age.
Aria: It's been boring until now since everyone's fallen to just one hit from me, but this is good~!
Brother-Sister Incest: Implied, but never made clear. The Foe Yay subtext largely comes from the fact that she seems to be obsessed with killing Halloween and making Tasha her supporter.
Clingy Jealous Girl: She becomes very aggravated when Halloween reveals how close she and Tasha are.
Mecha-Mooks: An Elite Mook variant. Aria's supporter, Aegis, are independent flying disks that automatically defend and retaliate against anyone who wishes to harm Aria. Each disk has power equivalent to that of an A Class WH.
Mundane Utility: In an omake, Aegis is revealed to have a CD player function as well as an automatic vacuum cleaner mode.
The Dividual: Poene, who is her Sorella, is not a supporter; She is more of South's sane personality, in a way (so far she appears only to help South negotiate verbally, as South is not the type to chat).note That, and the story hasn't told us what a Sorella is supposed to mean.
World's Strongest Witch: With East depowered, North weakened, and West dead, South is currently considered the strongest witch alive.
VARETTE Race: Witch Supporter: Shadow of Abyss
A very powerful witch who takes care of Aria.
Badass: Possibly the most badass witch in the story so far. She was once stated to be most powerful witch in existence when she defeated Mordred and was so powerful it was thought that it took twoLegendary Witches to kill her (and as evidenced, it didn't work in the long run). She is also notably the only other person other than Vihyungrang to force East to supply mana to her supporter Surtr. Even Merlin stated that if Varette was to get serious even he would be killed.
Submissive Badass: Made an unknown contract with North in regards to protecting her and educating the growth of Aria. Otherwise, even North pointed out that if she and Neptis were to team up against her they wouldn't stand a chance. Yet.
Hand-Hiding Sleeves: Varete pairs this trope with Detached Sleeves. They're "High Class Sleeves" mixed with "Loaded Sleeves" in that they tend to add to her regal and elegant bearing. While she doesn't hide any weapons in her sleeves, she has the ability to control any and all shadows, including the ones under her sleeves, so she's technically storing potential weapons there.
Living Shadow: Her Supporter, Shadow of The Abyss, is capable of manipulating shadows anywhere on the battlefield, allowing her to virtually transform it into any form she wants, and hardening it strong enough to cut through limbs like wet paper.
Mysterious Past: Several signs point out that she used to be the West Witch, but this is far from being confirmed.
Nigh-Invulnerability: Her Supporter, Shadow Of The Abyss, cannot be hurt or killed and can block Tasha's Mana Gun Desert Eagle Custom, a gun which can fire the force of 10,000 mana bullets at once, point blank with no visible effort.
A Korean/Chinese-inspired empire, home of Yue. The leadership of this empire is chosen by the White Dragon spirit, who inhabits whoever is the current emperor. The current royal family consists of the emperor and his three sons, Lee, Yue and Xing. Three years prior to the start of the story, Yue was chosen as the next emperor, starting an era of strife in the royal family.
The Bairong emperor, at least until he chose Yue to be his successor (theoretically). In truth he is not a single person, but the spirits of all Bairong emperors from since its founding inside his current vessel. He provoked Lee into attacking Yue as the latter was not chosen as the next emperor. Later during Xing's rule, he played Treacherous Advisor to the young emperor, eventually driving the youngster to hate his own brother. by the time Yue pays a visit to Bairong, he has possessed Xing and wants to kill Lee and Yue, but is later killed by Lee.
Yue's older brother. He wanted to be emperor, but was not chosen by the White Dragon spirit. Disappointed, he, after being given 'suggestion' from the current emperor, attempted to oust Yue, but has yet to succeed for three years.
Awesomeness by Analysis: Manages to figure out that his father performed a GrandTheftMe on Xing without nearly any hints and orchestrated the entire fall of Bairong Empire just to gather together the three brothers.
Hard Work Hardly Works: Averted. Lee is a firm believer that hard work will always surpass natural genius. While it didn't hold so much ground in the past with his rivalry with Yue, he manages to quickly prove his point in his recent battles in Bairong.
Yue's younger brother. He reluctantly accepted the throne when Yue decided to leave Bairong. He was targeted by an assassin after ruling for just one year, but made peace with the assassin, named Eun Sul Hwa, and ended up falling in love with her. Some time after, she was murdered, essentially causing Xing's Start of Darkness.
A palace maid who actually held grudge against the empire due to the death of her family at the hand of the emperor's Praetorian Guard, the Black Raven, and tried to assassinate Xing because of that. Not only she did fail, she ended up falling for Xing and was promoted to be his personal maid. She was later murdered.
RYU HWAN Birthday: June 12th Age: 17 (stopped aging) Blood Type: AB Height: 5'7'' Weight: 126 lb Race: Human Supporter: Halloween (Fergus)
A witch hunter, but not in the same sense as WH: He attacks any witch, even the benign ones. He used to be Edea Florence's apprentice like Tasha, and due to this, he also fights with guns and even has a supporter named Halloween who is indentical to Tasha's (at least until Tasha's transforms).
Always Someone Better: To Tasha. Outclassing him in every combat aspect; speed, power, technique, and synergy with Fergus. East takes on task of assigning him to train Tasha to be just as good.
Badass: He completely dominates Tasha in their first fight, shreds through teams of B class WH, and is able to curb stompAria, a feat that required Tasha to be backed up by Xing and Tarras, all of which are powerful A class WH in their own right.
Dark and Troubled Past: A glimpse of Ryuhwan's past shows his home village being destroyed and him being teleported to safety, but not without witnessing his mother's death in front of him prior to his escaping.
Deadly Upgrade: Like Tasha's Moirai's Confinement, Ryuhwan can access a powerful, albeit weaker, form by allowing a large amount of mana to enter his body. Unlike Tasha's though, he can enter this state without going insane but can only use it in a limited amount of time before his body rebounds from the strain.
LANCELOT Birthday: November 3th Age: 24 (stopped aging) Blood Type: O Height: 6'0'' Weight: 146 lb Race: Human Supporter of: Guinevere
A knight of the Round Table who now works for the witches. Despite this, his loyalty is truly to Guinevere. During his time in the Table, he is the only one who is against Arthur's decision on arresting Guinevere because she's a witch. His loyalty to Guinevere extends to her daughter, Mordred.
Britain's royal wizard, and the only other male who has internal mana reserve like witches.
An Offer You Can't Refuse: Offers to become The Mentor to Tasha in exchange for severance of his contract with Halloween. To elaborate, in the 100 years he learned to use mana he can teach Tasha how to control his in one month. In doing so Tasha can become 10 times stronger that what he is now, meaning he could effortlessly become stronger than a White S-Class.
Manipulative Bastard: Offers to reveal the location of The Four Great Witches in exchange for the severance of Tasha's contract with Halloween knowing full well it would be agreed upon and, being a WH, Tasha cannot refuse a direct order from Central.
He also instructs Sir Gawain to join the WH in their future invasion of the location of the Four Great Witches simply so they can acquire the tremendous mana within their hats in order for Britain to rise to power. Oh, and if the WH happen to intervene, slay them.
