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.

An S-Class WH. He first shows up to save Vihyungrang from East's Surtr, then later shows up again to fight Ryu Hwan. Like Words, he is a spy for North.

Nickname: Network Master
Race: Witch
Supporter Throne Room

A clairvoyant witch.
  • 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.
  • Poke in the Third Eye: She once attempts to spy on Varette, who promptly glares back at her.
  • 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.
  • Shapeshifter/ Empathic Shape Shifter: She meets only one person at a time, and for each visitor, she will appear as the person most emotionally attached to that person. For example, she looks like Aria when Tasha meets her. And not only that, she will also decorate her room so that it looks like the visitor's home. Tasha notably isn't happy with this treatment.

Race: Witch
Class: Black

Formerly a B-Class medic witch, now an A-Class witch after receiving a proper supporter named Tyrfing.
  • Badass Creed: She gives a rather nice one when she was given a chance to become apprentice to the witch that just killed her entire team.
    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.
  • Deal with the Devil: Her contract with Tyrfing forces her into it's mind, which is basically a sea of endless blood, where a naked woman, sporting black eyes, asks her to quench her insatiable thirst for blood in exchange for power, honor, glory, and destruction. How nice.
    Tyrfing: The choice is yours, foolish one.
  • Evil Weapon: Tyrfing.
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: Her mentality. Best demonstrated that when Tasha is about to leave WH, she sides with the remaining WH to stop him.
  • Rank Up: After making a contract with Tyrfing, her outfits immediately switches from blue to black.
  • Ship Tease: With Xing.



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.

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.

Race: Witch
Supporter: None

A witch who appeared along with Xiao in the capital of Bairong to fight Visul, Xing and Tarras. Seems to be a follower of Lee.

Race: Witch

A witch who appears together with Myun.

Nickname: Great Witch of the North
Birthday: Unknown
Age: Unknown
Blood Type: Unknown
Height: Unknown
Weight: Unknown
Race: Witch
Class: Unknown but very powerful
Supporter: Unknown

The Big Bad. East claims that North plans to destroy all humans.

Nickname: Great Witch of the South
Race: Witch
Supporter: None

Another of the Great Witches.

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 two Legendary 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.
    • Break the Badass: To Tasha. In her first appearance, no less.
    • 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.
  • The Caretaker: Of Aria.
  • Cleavage Window
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Best to ask who she hasn't. The only opponents shown that can be on par with her are the Four Great Witches.
  • Cynical Mentor: Tasked with educating Aria in the ways of witches, and not at all tolerable with the disgrace Aria brings to her status as a witch or her wishes to go back home.
    Varette: What mother would be waiting for the daughter who killed her father?
  • The Dreaded: Her very presence manages to bring a reaction of MassOhCrap to every opponent. Even South and Merlin.
  • 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.
  • Hot Witch
  • 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.
  • Nice Hat
  • 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.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: She fights East at one point. In the aftermath, the battlefield is totally destroyed.
  • Sexy Backless Outfit
  • Simple Staff: If she was was a West Witch, she carried one in the past.
  • The Stoic
  • Villain Teleportation: Via shadows.

    Bairong Empire 
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.


Xing's real name. The very night after he was chosen as the next emperor, he was almost assassinated, and during this time he also learned the true nature of the emperor.


Yue's personal guardian since when he was still a prince. She tends to hide her true strength, surprising many people who actually see her fight.


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.
