https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lumiere_silvamillion_clover.png

Voiced by: Syu Hikari (Japanese), Chris Burnett (English)

Debut: Chapter 1 (Manga), Episode 1 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Light

"I'm positive that this will become a world where our peoples can live side by side, as friends!! We'll be able to understand each other!"

A prince of the Clover Kingdom five centuries ago chosen by a four-leaf clover who later became known as the First Wizard King. Lumiere was interested in developing magic tools to achieve equality. He was friends with Licht, but had to fight against him due to his transformation into a demon.

Lumiere uses Light Magic, forming bursts and blades of light.


  • The Ace: His magic and talent were noted to be amazing even among royalty, with his mana stated to be even more powerful than the elves and having the brilliance to invent many magical tools with the help of Secre. His feat of defeating the demon that threatened the Clover Kingdom established the very title of the Wizard King.
  • All-Loving Hero: He's incredibly kind, wanting to help the commoners of his kingdom and working with Licht in hope that humans in the kingdom would peacefully coexist with the elves. Although his family didn't like his progressive ideals, this didn't bother him.
  • The Archmage: Even among the royalty of the Clover Kingdom, his magic was far more powerful than anyone else. He had a four-leaf clover grimoire, bestowed on exceptional mages, and rare, powerful Light Magic. His defeat of the demon that attacked the kingdom established the very title of the Wizard King.
  • Area of Effect: Lumiere can use Mana Zone, controlling the mana in the area around him. He uses it to increase his spells' power and range, forming many concentrated bursts of light.
  • An Arm and a Leg: His arm is cut off during the fight against Zagred. Secre reattaches it using her sealing magic.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: He was a prince of the Clover Kingdom and uses Light Magic, having blond hair, blue eyes, and wearing a white and red double-breasted jacket and pants with a blue cape.
  • Bash Brothers: Lumiere and Licht were best friends when they were alive, which shows when they fight together to defeat Zagred.
  • Best Friends-in-Law: He was Licht's best friend, with Licht engaged and expecting a child with his sister Tetia. The two of them tak about how the mariage will join their families and make them brothers.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's a great guy, but he's also one of the most powerful humans to have ever been born.
  • BFS: He can create gigantic swords of light to fire at enemies.
  • Big Good: He and Licht share this position as they return five centuries later to battle Zagred. The first Wizard King and the leader of the elves unify everyone against the devil.
  • Broke Your Arm Punching Out Cthulhu: Defeating a demon-transformed Licht left Lumiere heavily injured and near death, forcing Secre to seal him as a statue to be brought back at the right time. Due to being unsealed in an incomplete state, his body shatters shortly after Zagred is defeated.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Gender Inverted, with Secre being the distanced, stoic Brooding Girl to Lumiere's nice, idealistic Gentle Boy. She was assigned to be his servant, thinking he would be arrogant like the other royalty, but he turned out to be very kind, to her surprise. Lumiere's recognition of her magical potential, combined with his goal of equality, inspired Secre's deep loyalty to him.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Like Julius, he's a kind person who's also a geek in magic. He researched tech used to enhance the magic of everyone else besides the nobles.
  • Combination Attack: He can combine his Light Magic with Licht's Sword Magic to give allies a protective aura that boosts their speed.
  • Cool Crown: He wears a neat gold one with a green gem in the middle.
  • Elemental Hair Colors: He has blond hair and uses powerful Light Magic.
  • Elemental Speed: Light Magic is said to be the fastest form of magic, and he can envelop himself in a beam of light to move at incredible speed, going from near Hage Village to the Shadow Palace in the Royal Capital in short time.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Only known by his title as the First Wizard King in the present day.
  • Fairy Tale Motifs: Secre and Prince Lumiere are based on the swallow and prince from The Happy Prince. Secre turned Lumiere into a statue with the magic stones to save his life, at the cost of turning into a bird for five centuries. Here, however, she gives the statue of Lumiere the magic stones to unseal him in order to defeat Zagred. And despite her pleas, he lets her go to live out the rest of her life as he crumbles away.
  • Famed in Story: As the one who saved the Clover Kingdom and inspired the title of Wizard King, Lumiere became a legend whose actions inspired many Magic Knights to attain his position.
  • Famous Ancestor: Is this to the Silva and Vermillion royal families due to his family name being Silvamillion. As he dies, he's thankful that he got to meet his descendants, Noelle and Mimosa.
  • The Force Is Strong with This One: When he's unsealed by Secre, Finral notes that he has a calm and powerful mana greater than even the elves.
  • Gadgeteer Genius:
    • With Secre's sealing magic, he created magical tools with the goal of benefiting commoners and peasants. This backfired when Zagred used his same tool to massacre the elves.
    • Centuries later, Julius uses one of his tools, which he named Swallowtail after Secre, to store his Time Magic and ultimately save his life.
  • Go Out with a Smile: He smiles as his body crumbles away, thanking Asta for keeping his ideals alive, grateful to have met his descendants, and encouraging Secre to live on.
  • Greater-Scope Paragon:
    • He uncovered Zagred's plan to massacre the elves. Secre then sealed him as a statue to save his life, believing him to be the future's hope. Inspired by him, Secre loyally served him over the next five hundred years by watching over Licht's grimoire and observing the conflict between the elves and humans, unsealing him just before the final battle with Zagred.
    • As the First Wizard King, he helped establish the title of the strongest Magic Knight in the Clover Kingdom. His ideals for equality live on through Julius and Asta.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: He has bright blonde hair and desired to help the commoners in the kingdom and establish peace and understanding with the elves, unlike many of the aristocrats of his time.
  • Hard Light: He attacks using arrows and sword projectiles made of light.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Lict was his best friend. As the leader of his own people, and the owner of a four leaf grimorie, th two of them were, in Secre's words, "peers".
  • Implied Love Interest: To Secre. Secre refers to him as "my prince" and he was the first one to acknowledge her potential. As a result, she was very devoted to him, using Forbidden Magic to keep him alive at the cost of being turned into a bird for 500 years and willing to follow him to the afterlife after the battle with Zagred. However, it never is confirmed whether or not their relationship was romantic and he dies shortly after he's unsealed.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: He has bright blue eyes, and was an idealistic man who, like the elves, ended up being a victim of Zagred's plans.
  • Interspecies Friendship: He was friends with Licht, who even was to marry his younger sister Tetia.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: He was forced to kill Licht, his best friend, who had transformed into a demon using the magic stones to prevent Zagred from taking over his body.
  • Laser Blade: He mostly uses his Light Magic to form giant blades of light.
  • Last Request: Before he truly dies, he asks Secre to watch the current generation of Magic Knights' futures and ideals play out, hoping for her to achieve her true potential and live on. She fulfills this by joining the Black Bulls.
  • Light 'em Up: He uses Light Magic, creating bursts and swords made of light.
  • Light Is Good: His name is Lumiere, French for light, he uses Light Magic, and was the First Wizard King, hoping to end discrimination against commoners and peasants and famed for saving the Clover Kingdom from a rampaging demon.
  • Living Statue: He is this after becoming unsealed as a statue by Secre. When Zagred cuts his arm off, it doesn't even bleed, and cracks begin appearing on his body as he comes closer to dying.
  • Meaningful Name: His name, "Lumiere", is French for "light".
  • Mercy Kill: He does this for Licht, who turned into a demon to prevent Zagred from taking over his body and requested Lumiere to do so.
  • Nice Guy: In the past, the First Wizard King was very kind and polite, creating magic tools to bridge the disparity between the lower-class and nobility. He was the first person to acknowledge Secre's worth and encouraged her to develop her Sealing Magic.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Lumiere's powerful Light Magic was sealed by Secre in their magical invention as part of their experiments. Zagred, convincing the royals to kill the elves, used the magic item to massacre the elf tribe at Licht's wedding, which led Patry to mistake Lumiere as the perpetrator of the massacre and began his quest for revenge against the Clover Kingdom, all as part of the devil's plan.
  • No Body Left Behind: His body crumbles away in the aftermath of the battle with Zagred.
  • Our Founder: He is famed as the first Wizard King for defeating a demon and saving the kingdom. Statues of him include the one atop the giant skull near Hage Village and the Magic Knights Entrance Exam arena. This is later averted because it's not a statue atop the demon skull. It is the Wizard King.
  • Precursor Hero: He was the first Wizard King and the best friend of the elf tribe leader Licht, with whom he wished for a future of coexistence between elves and humans. Together, they foiled Zagred's plan to gain a body and five-leaf grimoire, and return five centuries later to work with the Magic Knights of the present-day to finally defeat him.
  • Primary-Color Champion: He wears a red and white jacket trimmed with gold and a blue cape. He was also the first Wizard King and a advocate for equality and peace between the elves and humans.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He lacked the snobbery and greed of other Clover Kingdom royals, and deilberately judged everyone by their own merits. This is a paraphrasing of some of his decisions as a prince.
    • Secre's magic is only good for "sealing"? That sounds cool, let's investigate its possibilities.
    • Everyone has different talents at magic. I'll invent magic items to help them develop it, and bridge the gap between commoners and nobility.
    • The leader of the elf tribe and I have much in common. We'll work together, instead of against each other.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: He was the prince of the Clover Kingdom and a powerful mage who developed magic tools with Secre to help the commoners and peasants in the Clover Kingdom. His family, on the other hand, disliked his ideals, which didn't bother him. Immediately after being unsealed, he goes to help fight against Zagred.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: For the longest time, it's assumed that he died prior to the start of the story. By the time of Chapter 203, however, it is revealed that he was actually sealed in stone for 500 years by Nero/Secre until he's freed and awakened again by the magic stones.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name can be romanized as "Lemiel" or "Lumiere". Viz and Funimation use Lumiere, which is phonetically closer to his Japanese name's pronunciation.
  • Storm of Blades: He can form multiple giant blades of light, which he used to bind a demon-transformed Licht.
  • Strong and Skilled: Finral describes his magical power as quiet and powerful, greater than even the reincarnated elves', and had the skill with it to use the rare technique of Mana Zone to control the mana in the surrounding environment, as well as form his magic into a myriad of constructs such as blades and arrows.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He had sealed his powerful Light Magic in a magic tool as part of his experiments involving Secre's magic. Zagred would use this magic tool to massacre the elves using his Light Magic and frame Lumiere as having betrayed the elves.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Despite the tension between humans and elves, he believed that someday the two races could understand each other and live together in peace. Sadly, Zagred took advantage of the other royals' desire for power and paranoia to persuade them to kill the entire elf tribe.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: Shortly after being unsealed by Secre, he only has a limited amount of time, which he makes the most of to help defeat Zagred. He crumbles away shortly afterwards.
  • World's Strongest Man: He was the first Wizard King and the strongest mage of his era, defeating a transformed Licht and saving the entire kingdom. When unsealed by Secre even in a weakened state, Finral describes his magic as quiet and powerful, surpassing even the reincarnated elves.

Julius Novachrono

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_julius_novachrono.png

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese), Robert McCollum (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 1 (Manga), Episode 3 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Time

"People want just one thing from the Wizard King... Achievements that mark you as the strongest. Produce results. Devote yourselves to building a reputation... That's everything. No one who's unable to do that could ever stand at the top...!"

The eccentric but beloved current Wizard King. A powerful man who loves magic, known as a "magic nerd" by his subordinates. He's absolutely enamored whenever he finds a rare or unique magic, with his desire to learn causing him to shirk his duties to his staff's frustration.

Uses Time Magic, using time he has "stolen" from enemies to fast forward, rewind, and stop the flow of time.


  • 100% Adoration Rating: He’s beloved by everyone in the kingdom for his kindness and power, and deeply respected by all the Magic Knights captains. So much so that the actual king is very jealous of it and gets pouty when reminded of this fact.
  • Ability Mixing: By combining Mana Zone with his Time Magic, Julius can accelerate the time of mana around him to sense the very near future and anticipate attacks.
  • All-Loving Hero: His goal is to end the discrimination between the aristocrats and commoners and peasants of the Clover Kingdom. Julius himself is very courteous and kind, making him loved and respected by everyone in the kingdom.
  • The Archmage: As his title would imply, he's considered the strongest mage of the Clover Kingdom, and is the military commander of all mages in the kingdom.
  • Area of Effect: Julius can use Mana Zone, controlling the mana in the area around him. He uses it to increase his spells' power and range, as well as combine it with his Time Magic to foresee attacks.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Says to Asta and Yuno that the only requirement to become Wizard King is results, right before opening a door to reveal a dozen other talented young sorcerers as part of the Medal Presentation. He finally proves why onscreen when he wipes out an entire squad of mages who completely overpowered the heroes and Captain Vermillion in seconds without getting a scratch.
  • Attack Reflector: He can use his spell Chrono Stasis to trap an enemy's projectile in a sphere then send it back even faster.
  • Awesome McCoolname: Stated so In-Universe:
    Zara Ideale: Guys like that succeed in the world! His name was cool too! Novachrono!
  • Back from the Dead: He comes back to life by storing 13 years of age into his tattoo thanks to a magical tool from Lemiel and Secre, but comes back physically 13 years old with one page of his Grimoire left.
  • Badass Boast: To Licht as he fights him.
    "I can see your future already. You can't win against me."
  • Bad Powers, Good People: His Time Magic is revealed to be this. It relies on stealing the time of those he has killed and storing it to be used. Despite this, he's the protector of the kingdom. He notes that he was blessed with such a power to protect the innocent, and uses it to save the kingdom at the cost of his life.
  • Benevolent Mage Ruler: He has been shown to be a kind, approachable man who protects his kingdom and takes interest in the skills of the youth of said kingdom. Unlike many other nobility, he aspires to end discrimination against commoners and peasants in the kingdom.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Julius is a very kind man who treats those he meets respectfully regardless of their social class. He's also used his Time Magic, which is based off stealing the time of enemies, to take many lives, and won't hesitate to age an enemy of the kingdom into dust.
  • Big Good: As the Wizard King, the head of the Magic Knights, he leads them against powerful threats to protect the Clover Kingdom.
  • Bilingual Bonus: The last spell he uses before being stabbed by Licht is "Chrono Anastasis", which is Greek for "time resurrection", to rewind time and erase Licht's light blades from killing civilians in the Clover Kingdom. He ends up bringing himself back to life as a thirteen-year old using his magic combined with Lumiere and Secre's old magic tool.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Using magic to revive himself not only placed him in the body he had as a boy, but took away all the pages of his grimoire but one. Because of the way his stockpiling powers work, he's weaker than the average teenage commoner. He still has his 40 odd years of knowledge and wits to work with, but the Clover Kingdom has to cover his condition up for as long as possible so other nations won't invade now that he can't fight back.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: A magic Otaku that often neglects his duties to do whatever the hell he wants and study other types of magic. He's still the Wizard King, the strongest Magic Knight in the kingdom.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: By accelerating time for the mana around him, he can read the flow of mana in the future, which allows him to avoid most of Licht's attacks.
  • Dare to Be Badass: To Asta and Yuno right after his statement about becoming the next Wizard King:
    Wizard King: [motioning to the other young sorcerers in the hall] Do you think... you'll be able to produce more results than these guys?
  • De-Power: He is reduced to one page of his Grimoire after bringing himself back to life as a 13 year old, losing most of his powers over Time Magic.
  • Deus Exit Machina: Leaves right before a bunch of powerful sorcerers come to terrorize the kingdom.
  • Dissonant Serenity: He maintains his affable, friendly tone as he threatens to slaughter the Eye of the Midnight Sun members who attacked the Clover Kingdom.
  • Ermine Cape Effect: Although he isn't actual royalty, he's the Wizard King and is more influential than the actual king. He looks the part, wearing an ornate cape with golden necklaces and medals.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": People largely refer to him by his title.
  • Flash Step: He appears to do this thanks to his Time Magic, allowing him to avoid attacks by slowing time. It looks as if he's instantaneously teleporting when in reality he only looks that fast because time is slowed down for everyone else but himself.
  • Foil: To king Augustus. Julius is the Wizard King, a position earned through achievements, while Augustus is the kingdom's actual king, a title he was born into. Julius believes that the love for the people should be earned through merit while Augustus expects it to come with one's title and background. Julius wants to end the discrimination against commoners in the kingdom while Augustus, like other aristocrats, looks down on the lower-class. And Julius is beloved by the kingdom, a fact that Augustus, whose subjects are indifferent to him, is very envious of.
  • Foreshadowing: For him being resurrected as a thirteen-year old:
    • As he dies, the magical tattoo on his forehead disappears. It was used to link himself to his Time Magic sealed into a magic tool to bring himself back to life.
    • His surname "Novachrono" is Latin for "new time" and the last spell he casts before dying is Chrono Anastasis, meaning "time resurrection" in Latin. He uses his Time Magic to resurrect himself as a thirteen-year old.
    • When fighting Patry, he proclaims that he will not die before he sees his dream of ending discrimination within the Clover Kingdom come true. Later on, it's revealed he didn't die and came back as a young teenager.
  • The Gambler: In his old lady disguise, he's seen beating Sekke in a game of cards.
  • Go Out with a Smile: He smiles during his last moments, happy that he's seen so many different magics and known so many people. It's later revealed that he revived himself as a thirteen-year old.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He's certainly nice to his allies and is a Reasonable Authority Figure, but he won't hesitate to kill his enemies by reducing them to dust. Then it's revealed that his magic revolves around using the time of enemies he's killed, and Julius notes that he's killed countless people.
  • Gratuitous Greek: All his named spells use Greek words. "Chrono" for time, "Stasis" for standing, "Grigora" for fast, and "Anastasis" for resurrection.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Julius has dark blond hair and is the kind, loving Wizard King who desires to end the Clover Kingdom's discrimination.
  • Hand Blast: As a more direct form of attacking, he can fire blasts of mana from his hands.
  • Healing Hands: Thanks to his magic he can reverse time to heal wounds, including his own.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He uses his Time Magic to erase Licht's Arrows of Judgment, fully knowing that it leaves him vulnerable as he does so. This ends with him being fatally stabbed by Licht.
  • Hour of Power: The now thirteen-year old Julius uses the last page in his grimoire to age himself 10 years to try to save the kingdom from the ancient Spade Kingdom demon released to attack it by the Dark Triad. It turns out to be seconds of power, as very shortly after he reverts back to his young, powerless form and is exposed to the kingdom.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: He's stabbed by a sword made of Licht's Light Magic while he erases his spell to save the Clover Kingdom. He survives thanks to his magic but is brought back as a thirteen-year old.
  • Keet: Surprisingly enough, he's this around rare magic due to his "magic geek" tendencies as explained by Klaus. He's ecstatic when he sees the rare magic in Yuno's tome, but is saddened when Yuno tells him that he's been unable to use it since. He also gushes over Asta's Demon-Dweller Sword until he realizes that the sword is draining his mana.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Julius is the Wizard King and has tremendous magic power. Also, he is a major geek who can't help giggling like a maniac whenever he sees incredible magic powers from people lower than him in ranks. He is such a fanboy he periodically sneaks out of the castle just to spy on people he has an eye on to, you guessed it, squee at their magic talent. Asta and Yuno stand out as his favorite knights.
  • Light Is Good: He has golden hair and wears an ornate white and red cape with golden jewelry. He's also the leader of the Magic Knights whose goal is equality between the kingdom's social classes.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Using his Time Magic, Julius can move incredibly fast and, if an enemy isn't fast enough to keep up with him, he can age their body to dust or blast them with his mana. He's also seemingly unphased from being swung around and dragged throughout the Clover Castle walls with Licht's whip.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • His first name is Julius. Like the famous statesman, he's betrayed by a close subordinate which leads to him getting stabbbed.
    • His last name is Novachrono, nova and chrono being Latin for "new" and "time" respectively, and he uses Time Magic and gets de-aged after using his magic to save himself.
  • Messy Hair: As a 13 year old, is hair is long and shaggy to match his de-aged body.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: His first name comes from Julius Caesar.
  • Nice Guy: From what we have seen of him, he's shown to be a kind and laid back ruler devoted to achieving equality for the people of the Clover Kingdom.
  • Older Than They Look: After reviving himself, he has the body he possessed during his mid to early teens.
  • Otaku: Julius is a huge magic geek, becoming excited when learning about unique magics, complete with sparkling eyes. So much so that he often shirks his duties as the Wizard King to search for new magics in disguise.
  • Peaceful in Death: As he dies, he entrusts everything to Yami and thinks about how great it is to have met so many different people and to have seen so many different kinds of magic. It turned out he survived, but he wasn't sure he would at the time.
  • Perpetual Smiler: The man is almost always shown smiling. Even while he's slaughtering the enemy's squad. He does stop smiling when Langris uses magic reminiscent to that of Vetto and Fana, and Licht reveals himself to be in Vangeance's body.
  • Personality Powers: Julius has Time Magic and is a whimsical, carefree man who tends to shirk his duties as the Wizard King to look for unique magics.
  • Physical God: Julius is so powerful with his Time Magic that Licht, an elf whose race was so powerful that they were treated as gods in the past, sees him as an all-powerful obstacle sent by nature itself.
  • Power Floats: He can levitate and move through the air, avoiding Licht's spells with incredible speed.
  • Power Tattoo: He has a mark named Swallowtail on the left side of his forehead that stores reserves of his Time Magic. After being fatally wounded by Licht he uses it to revive himself but now as a thirteen-year old.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: A chillingly casual one:
    Wizard King: You can't possibly have gone to kill, without being prepared to be killed, right?
  • Primary-Color Champion: He's the Wizard King, the leader of the kingdom's Magic Knights, and wears an ornate red robe with white shirts and pants cuffed with blue.
  • Purple Is Powerful: He has purple eyes and is the Wizard King, signifying him as the strongest Magic Knight in the kingdom.
  • Rapid Aging: Touching members of the Eye of the Midnight Sun have them age so fast that they crumble to dust almost instantaneously.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He created the current ranking so that everyone has a chance to be recognized if they put in the work. This is because of Zara, Zora Ideale's father, being the ideal epitome of a Magic Knight, despite being a peasant and not getting recognized, around Julius when they were both just Knights.
  • Shapeshifting:
    • He disguised himself as an unassuming old lady in order to see the skills of Asta.
    • He later disguises himself as a bartender and oversees the captains after the Star Festival, leaving after Asta, Yuno, Noelle, Charlotte, and Yami get dragged off by Mereoleona.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Because of transliteration issues. Mage King, Sorcerer Emperor, and Wizard King are all valid translations, though the official translation (for the manga, anime, video game, and all licensed merchandise) goes with the latter.
  • Sphere of Power: His spell Chrono Stasis forms ringed spheres to restrain projectiles and enemies themselves if they aren't fast enough to avoid.
  • Stealth Insult: Throws many of these in when awarding the mages at the Valor Ceremony in an attempt to correct their social deficiencies. They mostly take them as compliments.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: His surname, Novachrono, alludes to the fact that he's a Time Master.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Time Magic lets him reduce enemies to dust by touch, move at incredible speed, and stop most attacks and restore himself by changing the flow of time. As a result, the Magic Knights face the Third Eye in locations far away from the Royal Capital where Julius could help. He only loses to Licht because he doesn't want to overly harm Vangeance's body and he threatens the entire kingdom, forcing Julius to sacrifice himself and making the reincarnated elves all the more dangerous. And when resurrected, he comes back as a thirteen-year old with only one page of his grimoire, which makes the Spade Kingdom an even greater threat.
  • Superpower Lottery: Aside from his sheer magical power, his magical attribute is Time. This allows him to do such things freeze targets place, see into the future, inflict Rapid Aging, selectively rewind time to erase injuries, and come Back from the Dead by having stored up 13 years of extra time in his magical tattoo.
  • Time Master: His Time Magic allows him to steal and store others' time, using it to change the flow of time. He's shown to be capable of decelerating time to put his foes in a stasis bubble where the victims experience a split second for an excruciatingly long period of time, unable to move or speak all the while. He's also able to inflict Rapid Aging on an enemy, which the enemy leader finds out firsthand.
  • Time Stands Still: This is inflicted on anything caught in his Chrono Stasis, trapped in a sphere and in a continuous time loop while unable to move.
  • Wingding Eyes: Whenever he's excited about seeing a cool magic, his eyes turn into sparkles.
  • Worf Had the Flu: He held back against Licht because he was possessing Vangeance's body. In the end, he's only defeated because Licht is about to kill everyone in the kingdom, forcing Julius to use his magic to save them and Licht using that opportunity to fatally stab him.
  • World's Strongest Man: As the current Wizard King, he's the strongest mage in the Clover Kingdom. Licht, who is an elf who are all vastly stronger than most humans, thinks Julius is so inhumanly strong when they fight that he views him as an obstacle sent by nature against the elves for planning to violate natural law.
  • Wrong Context Magic: His Time Magic is classified by the Heart Kingdom as unnatural, which would make him an Arcane Stage. This is seen in his grimoire, which is a gigantic, cover less book that floats in the sky. However he's now lost most of his powers after being revived as a thirteen-year old.

Silver Eagles

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/silvereagle_insignia.png

The Magic Knight Squad associated with the House of Silva.


  • Animal Motifs: Eagles. They are a proud group who take pride in their status as nobility and royalty. Nozel, the captain, forms an eagle out of his Mercury Magic. Their outfits also have extensions resembling feathers.
  • Aristocrat Team: The Silver Eagles are an elite group of Magic Knights. Founded and run by the highborn Silva family, the Silver Eagles have high standards and only allow nobles into their ranks, seeing anyone of lower class to not being worth the effort.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: A trait they share with most nobles. They are very prideful of their magic, and can't handle the idea that commoners or peasants can be good with magic.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Noelle's older siblings may not have been the nicest of all people when they were young, but it soon becomes clear that they do love each other, as evident when Nozel teams up with Noelle to fight the elves after the latter decides to help them and later when Solid tells her to join her friends.
  • Badass Family: The squad is led by members of the Silva family. All of them are tough as nails badasses.
  • Big Brother Bully: Noelle's older siblings took their time tormenting her during their childhood, pushing the guilt for their mother's death on her and ridiculing her lack of magic competence. Nozel forbade her from taking the Magic Knights Entrance Exam and forced her into the Black Bulls so as to not shame the family publicly. Solid would often destroy her things when they were kids. Nozel's actions are justified in Chapter 176 as not only he did he not want to have Noelle disappear from his sight, but he kept her off the front lines all because he was concerned that Noelle wouldn't become powerful enough to defend herself.
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: The reason why the Silvas became a dysfunctional family is because of Acier's death. When she died giving birth to Noelle, her older siblings mocked her for indirectly causing their mother's death as well as her Power Incontinence. Even then, Solid went so far as to destroy Noelle's toys. They would have been killed by the elves had Noelle not been compassionate enough to help them.
  • Break the Haughty: They don't seem to be taking their defeat to the Black Bulls in the ranking very well, especially Solid. They are also surprised when Nozel sincerely apologizes to Noelle in Chapter 176.
  • Color Motif: Silver. The squad is led by the royal Silva family.
  • Dysfunctional Family: They are first shown as dysfunctional, through Noelle being constantly mocked by her older siblings for causing their mother's death and failing to control her powers, Solid destroying Noelle's toys when she was young and Nozel purposefully keeping Noelle out of the front lines. Fortunately, Noelle helping her siblings fight the elves and Nozel reconciling with her brings them all closer together.
  • Family Business: The Silver Eagles are led by the House of Silva. The squad was led by Acier, the Silva siblings' mother, and Nozel is the current captain.
  • Hate Sink: Aside from Noelle, the Silva family often tends to Kick the Dog at every opportunity. This is eventually subverted when Nozel apologizes to Noelle after she steps in to protect her siblings from the elves and later when Solid proudly acknowledges her for who she is.
  • Heroic Lineage: The Silva siblings are the children of Acier Silva, a Magic Knight famed for her beauty and strength who trained Mereoleona. The Silva Family are also descendants of the first Wizard King, Lumiere Silvamillion Clover.
  • Jerkass: When they are first introduced, they all take the time to mock and laugh at Noelle for not controlling her magic very well.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After the Silva family mocked Noelle for her entire life, they are easily defeated by the Black Bulls, of which Noelle is a part of. Even better, Nozel teams up with Noelle to protect her siblings from the elves and acknowledges her strength, and Solid later admits how proud he is of his younger sister.
  • Light Is Not Good: They all wear white uniforms and are initially not the nicest of people, save for Noelle.
  • Lineage Comes from the Father: Gender Inverted. The Guidebook confirms that Acier was a Silva by birth, and she was the Captain of the Silver Eagles and a Magic Knight famed for her beauty and strength. The Silva siblings all inherited the house's characteristic silver hair from their mother. Their father, on the other hand, is never mentioned nor seen aside from a very brief flashback which doesn't even show his face.
  • Making a Splash: All members of the Silva family have inherited some variation of magic connected to either water or liquids. Nozel manipulates liquid mercury, Nebra uses Mist, and Solid uses Water.
  • Mystical White Hair: All the Silva siblings have white hair, and they're all royals blessed with large amounts of mana.
  • Nom de Mom: The Guidebook confirms that Acier was a Silva by birth, while the Silva siblings' father married into the royal family.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: Or at least on the good guys' side. Like most of the nobility, they look down on other people for being weaker or poorer than them.
  • Practically Different Generations: Nozel is 29 years old, much older than his younger siblings Solid and Noelle, who are 18 and 15 years old respectively.
  • The Rich Have White Stuff: The House of Silva are one of the royal families of the Clover Kingdom, and they have silver hair and wear mostly white clothing.
  • Royal Blood: All members of the Silva family are of royal lineage.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Nozel is a captain and both Nebula and Solid have a lot of stars.
  • So Proud of You:
    • In Chapter 176, Nozel admits that he underestimated Noelle's strength when they protected their brothers from harm.
    • By Chapter 190, Solid acknowledges that Noelle has become stronger and tells her to come home soon after, accepting her for who she is.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: They all resemble their late mother to some degree. In particular, Noelle closely resembles Acier, albeit with a different hairstyle.
  • Thicker Than Water: Even though Solid and Nozel abused Noelle throughout their childhood, they eventually prove that they're not completely heartless. First, Nozel and Noelle join forces to help their siblings who are being attacked by the elves. And later, Solid acknowledges that he has come to accept Noelle for who she is.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Except for Noelle, all of the Silva siblings have white hair and cruel personalities, at first.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Even when they're grown up, Nozel and Solid have no problems mocking Noelle. Well, until the Royal Knights Arc, at least.

    Nozel Silva 

Nozel Silva

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_nozel_silva.png

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (Japanese), Ricco Fajardo (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 2 (Manga), Episode 3 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Mercury

The oldest member of the Silva siblings and the captain of the Silver Eagles. He is a rude but competent man. He has a rivalry with Fuegoleon, the captain of the Crimson Lion Kings.

Uses Mercury Magic, which manipulates mercury in its liquid state.


  • Aloof Big Brother: To Noelle, who he disparaged for being unable to control her magic. It's later revealed he did so to protect her, not confident that she would become strong enough to become a powerful Magic Knight.
  • Animal Battle Aura: It takes the form of a blue eagle when he confronts Fuegoleon.
  • Animal Motifs: His magic takes the form of an eagle and he's captain of the Silver Eagles. He's an aloof and proud royal.
  • Anti-Regeneration: He uses his Mercury Magic to destroy Megicula's body and hamper it from regenerating by reacting with the devil's blood. This leaves only the devil's heart, which Noelle destroys while in Saint Stage for them to finally defeat the devil.
  • Beneath the Mask: A prideful royal and Aloof Big Brother on the outside, but held a deep guilt over his mother becoming fatally cursed to slowly die and unable to tell anyone or do anything about it, pushing Noelle away and distancing her from the fight because in reality he was afraid of losing her as well and saw himself as a useless coward with no right to involve himself in his little sister's life.
  • Best Served Cold: Thought about getting revenge against Megicula for 17 years after the devil fatally cursed Acier and he watched his mother die. All that time, he trained himself to become strong enough to get revenge. He finally gets it when he comes to the scene of Megicula's fight and defeats the devil with Noelle and frees their mother's soul.
  • Big Brother Instinct: In Chapter 176, as Noelle fights the elf, Nozel's first instinct is to raise his mercury barrier to protect the rest of his siblings and join forces with the youngest of the Silva siblings for good. In Chapter 222, he didn't tell his family the truth of the real cause of their mother's death because the devil's curse will kill them if they find out.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Him, Charlotte, and Jack arrive just in time to save some of the Black Bulls from the Third Eye's combined attack and help fight against them.
    • Nozel saves Asta and Yuno from a giant light blast from Patry, who had been turned into a dark elf, with a mercury barrier and restrains him soon after.
    • Just as the Black Bulls are about to fight Damnatio at the Magic Parliament trial, Nozel and Fuegoleon stop them, delivering Julius's message that the Black Bulls will go into exile to investigate the devils, saving Asta and Nero from execution in the meantime.
    • Arrives atop his mercury eagle protecting Noelle from Megicula and expresses his desire for revenge against the devil, fully intent on joining the fight.
  • Bishōnen: Slender features combined with meticulously styled hair. According to the Volume 12 Questions Brigade, he is the fourth most beautiful man among the characters.
  • Brother–Sister Team: With Noelle to defeat Megicula, with Nozel using his Mercury Magic to destroy the devil's flesh and Noelle destroying her heart, freeing their mother Acier's soul.
  • Character Development: Goes from looking down on peasants like most royals to acknowledging Asta, even calling him a rival for the position of Wizard King.
  • Death from Above: He can unleash raindrops of mercury as projectiles.
  • Elemental Barrier: Using his Mercury Magic he can form a spherical one large enough to protect and carry multiple people simultaneously.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Flashbacks reveal that he braided his bangs into the shape of a cross modeled after his mother's grave to remind himself to become stronger after she was cursed to die by Megicula and he was unable to do anything about it.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Nozel uses Mercury Magic, forming liquid mercury that he can shape however he wants. He can even compress it enough to turn it into a smooth surface to reflect Light Magic.
  • Fire/Water Juxtaposition: Fuegoleon and Nozel have had an intense rivalry since they were children which remains even as adults. Fuegoleon uses Flame Magic to form a lion and large fire blasts. Nozel uses Mercury Magic, liquid metal, to form an eagle and shape into many different forms. Fuegoleon is a warm and hot-blooded person, having his moments of hamminess, who judges someone for their worth and not their social status. Nozel is a cold individual, aloof towards even his family, who has the arrogance of royalty.
  • Foil: To Fuegoleon. Whereas Fuegoleon is a flame magic user, connected to warm colors and is a Cool Big Bro to the members of his team, Nozel uses metallic liquid as a form of magic, is connected to cold colors, especially silver, and is an Aloof Big Brother to his brothers at best and at worst, he's abusive to Noelle.
  • The Force Is Strong with This One: As a royal and captain of a Magic Knights squad, he has immense magical power, generating an intense pressure that intimidates Asta when he faces off with Fuegoleon.
  • Freudian Excuse: He only acted indifferently towards Noelle as not only did he not want the latter to disappear from his sight again but he purposefully kept her off the front lines, because he was concerned that she wouldn't get any stronger. Later on, it's revealed that there's another reason for this: their mother actually died from a devil's curse and saying the devil's name will kill their family. Nozel is the only family member who knows this which is why he kept this a secret from his siblings, with his family assuming that Acier died from the aftereffects of childbirth. Nozel, keeping this secret to himself for years, cursed himself as a coward and thought that he wasn't worthy enough to be in Noelle's life. Dorothy is only other people who knows this thanks to the immunity of her Dream Magic.
  • Good Is Not Soft: After restraining Patry, he immediately tries to kill him until Asta stops him.
  • Hand Blast: His spell Silver Shining Regal Spear unleashes a beam from his palm that can slice through rock.
  • Has a Type: According to the Volume 18 Questions Brigade, he is attracted to someone with a dignified strength who would give their all for the prosperity of the House of Silva.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Underneath his noble, snobbish demeanor is a deep self-loathing for being unable to do anything as his mother died from her curse, seeing himself as a weakling and coward for doing anything.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Kivn catches him off guard and stabs him with her compass needles. He gets better soon after by reinforcing his body with his magic.
  • Improbable Hairstyle: He has a braid made out of his bangs that hangs between his eyes. Lampshaded by Yami, who sarcastically asks him how he has the time to braid it in the morning.
  • It's Personal: He vows to make the Eye of the Midnight Sun pay for heavily injuring Fuegoleon, his rival.
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • When Asta is kidnapped, he makes a sound point that with the town being attacked, the Magic Knights don't have the resources to drop everything to save another person and that they now need to prepare for another attack instead.
    • While Noelle protects the rest of the Silva siblings in Chapter 176, Nozel admitted that he didn't want her to disappear from his sight again, all because he was concerned that she wouldn't become powerful enough to defend herself. There's also the fact that he didn't tell Noelle about Megicula cursing Acier to death.
  • Jerkass Realization: He realizes what a jerk he has been to Noelle and how wrong he was in assuming she wouldn't grow strong in Chapter 176 after she shows up to help her siblings against the elf.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his cold behavior towards Noelle, it becomes clear he deeply loves his sister, as shown when Noelle teams up with him to fight the elves and protect their siblings.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Of all Acier's children he's the only one to inherit her metal attribute, rather than his father's Water Magic.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: A slender, attractive royal with long white hair kept in an elaborate hairstyle.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: He can form many shields out of mercury as defenses.
  • Meaningful Name: Nozel is Hebrew for liquid, and he uses liquid mercury to fight.
  • Noble Demon: When Nebula and Solid begin prodding and scorning Mimosa's family and Golden Dawn after Asta is kidnapped and Leon is maimed, he silences them by pointing out that their misfortune was partially the Silver-Winged Great Eagle's fault for not being prepared for such an occasion. Later, he even reconciles with Noelle and helps their family fight the elves.
  • Not So Above It All:
    • Despite his attitude of superiority as a royal, he still insults Yami and gets annoyed when Yami and Asta discuss his hair.
    • He's very annoyed when the Black Bulls beat the Silver Eagles in the rankings, and gets ticked off when Yami brags about it.
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
    • For all his stoicism, he's very surprised when the Black Bulls get second in the squad rankings, beating his own squad.
    • A blushing Nozel apologizes to Noelle for being wrong, thinking that she couldn't grow strong and trying to distance her from the battlefield as a result by acting cold to her and rejecting her from the Silver Eagles. All his siblings are surprised, what with his usually cold, proud demeanor.
  • Personality Powers: Pretty much stated by Acier:
    "You have the strength of steel, and the flexibility of water."
  • Revenge: His angry expression and words towards Megicula for killing his mother are very much this:
    "How dare you show yourself in front of my family again. You have no idea how long I've waited for this moment!!"
  • The Rival: He's had a rivalry with Fuegoleon since they were kids.
  • Secret-Keeper: He is one of the few people who knows that Megicula cursed Acier to death.
  • Shaping Your Attacks: Even moreso than other mages. Thanks to mercury being liquid metal and Nozel's sheer precision with his magic, he can shape it with great versatility. He's been seen using it to form spears, shields, bullets, swords, an eagle, and a giant cage.
  • Single Tear: Sheds one along with Noelle after their freed mother's soul hugs them after they defeat Megicula, complimenting them on having grown strong.
  • Spontaneous Weapon Creation: He can use his Mercury Magic to form many blades and spears from liquid metal.
  • Storm of Blades: He can form multiple swords out of mercury and control them simultaneously.
  • Strong and Skilled: He's noted to have greater mana than Yami and also have very precise control over his mercury magic, freely shaping it however he needs to combine offense and defense and reinforce his body after being stabbed.
  • This Cannot Be!: The look on his face when the Black Bulls beat them in the rankings just screams this.
  • Underestimating Badassery: In Chapter 176, he tells Noelle that he completely underestimated how strong she has become as part of their reconciliation.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: In Chapter 176, he admits to Noelle that he purposefully stopped Noelle from joining the Silver Eagles and forced her to join the Black Bulls because she heavily resembled Acier and he didn't want Noelle to disappear from his sight again. Then comes The Reveal in Chapter 222 that he did all this to protect his siblings from knowing the devil's curse that really killed their mother because it will kill them if they know.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Nozel's Mercury Magic revolves around precision and fine control of his Mercury. As a result, he is at a huge disadvantage against Kivn, whose spell Another Atlas disrupts all the mana underneath the giant compass formed. Noelle has to flood the area to make her stop the spell, but Nozel gets stabbed when caught off-guard, forcing him and his siblings to rely on their younger sister to defeat the elf.

    Nebra Silva 

Nebra Silva

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_nebra_silva.png

Voiced by: Yurika Aizawa (Japanese), Mallorie Rodak (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 2 (Manga), Episode 4 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Mist

A smug and overconfident woman, and is quick to laugh at people. Nebra is the first daughter of the Silva family.

Uses Mist Magic, capable of manipulating mist to create clones and contain her enemies.


  • Animal Motifs: Spiders. She forms webs out of mist and is an unpleasant woman who likes toying with her enemies.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: We first see her accompanying her brother Nozel to the selection exams, watching in the background.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: She wears a purple cape and is a refined, yet bitchy, royal.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: She gets stabbed by Kivn's compass needle. She gets better by getting healing soon after.
  • Making a Splash: Same as her siblings Nozel, Solid, and Noelle. She's far more technical and precise than Solid or Noelle, forming snake-like coils out of mist to attack.
  • Meaningful Name: "Nebura" can also be read as "Nebula", which is a mist cloud of stellar matter.
  • Self-Duplication: She can create clones out of mist.
  • Smug Super: She always wears a cruel and overconfident smile, especially when she's around her little sister or peasants. She does have the skill to back it, as one of the highest ranking members of the Silver Eagles. Though given that (unlike her younger brother) she didn't even enter the Royal Knights Selection Exam, it's possible she's not actually as confident in her power as she wants everybody to believe.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: Elegant and refined, but the Wizard King notes that she "plays" with her enemies too much. Not to mention her treatment of Noelle.

    Solid Silva 

Solid Silva

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bc_solid_silva.png

Voiced by: Shouma Yamamoto (Japanese), Wakana Kowaka (Japanese, young), Christopher Wehkamp (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 22 (Manga), Episode 20 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Water

A sadistic and arrogant man who took pleasure in making Noelle's life hell when they were kids.

Uses Water Magic, manipulating water to form weapons and other things.


  • Alliterative Name: Solid Silva.
  • Animal Motifs: Sea Serpents. He forms them using his water magic and is a sadistic guy who enjoys bullying his younger sister Noelle.
  • Big Brother Bully: He deserves a special mention due to his sadism. In a flashback, he's seen being a complete Jerkass to Noelle, which includes him breaking her toys just because. By the time of the Royal Knights Arc, however, it leads to his downfall when he insists on fighting Noelle who has become stronger than him.
  • Big Brother Instinct: In Chapter 190, he stays behind to fight the elves, allowing Noelle to escape with the other Black Bulls.
  • Break the Haughty: He can't believe that Noelle could cast a spell like Sea Dragon's Roar. When she defeats him with it, he can only mutter than it's impossible.
  • Ineffectual Loner: Alecdora warns him to not go off on his own immediately after being put in the same team. Noelle exploits this along with his Big Brother Bully tendencies by asking Yuno to send her to destroy Solid's team crystal, knowing he'll go after her without thinking.
  • It's All About Me: The Wizard King tries to get him to work with a team rather than solo, but his face is what sells it. He drops it after Noelle defeats him.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Like Nozel, he deeply loves Noelle as shown when he vows to surpass Noelle and tells her to come home soon after in an act of reconciliation.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After he spent several years mocking Noelle for her lack of magic competence, even when she's become stronger than him, Solid gets a taste of his own medicine in the Royal Knights arc when Noelle curb-stomps him during their match and destroys the crystal he was guarding. After that, he even stays behind to cover for his sister as an act of reconciliation.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Alecdora and the Wizard King note that Solid often has trouble remembering to work as a team rather than rushing into things by himself.
  • Making a Splash: He prefers focused water projectiles instead of Noelle's torrents and Nebra's coils.
  • Sore Loser: He is distraught when the Black Bulls beat them in the rankings.
  • This Cannot Be!: He says it word-for-word to having his magic reflected back at him, forcing him to kneel from the impact. He has a similar reaction when Noelle overpowers him and destroys the crystal he was guarding.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Even after Noelle learned to control her magic, he makes the mistake of underestimating how more powerful she became and is utterly curb-stomped in their match.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: Perhaps not "villain" outside of being a Jerkass, but the principles apply. When he fights Noelle during the Royal Knights Selection Exam, while he's definitely not holding back he's not really much if at all stronger than he was during his introduction. Compare that to Noelle, whose strength and control of her magic have grown exponentially since joining the Black Bulls, not to mention her fighting spirit, such that where once Solid would have easily trounced her in an actual fight the situation is now completely reversed.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Solid has tormented his little sister Noelle in childhood and adulthood; he's seen verbally abusing her, slapping away the food off her plate and, in the anime, he even spills a glass of water on her head at the awards banquet. During the Royal Knights Selection Exam, he doesn't hold back against Noelle at all when they're pitted against each other in magic combat. Unfortunately, his best isn't good enough, as Noelle brutally pays him back for all the years she's suffered under him.

  • Underestimating Badassery: When Luck attacks him, he thinks he has the upper hand thanks to his greater magic power. He's very wrong when Luck kicks him into his team's crystal, shattering it.

    Acier Silva 

Acier Silva

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/acier_steel.png

Voiced by: Kana Yuuki (Japanese), Luci Christian (English)

Debut: Chapter 111 (Manga), Episode 71 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Steel

Noelle's deceased mother and former captain of the Silver Eagles.


  • Always Someone Better: Acier was this to Mereoleona as the latter never managed a single win against the former. Years after Acier's death, Mereoleona fondly reminisces on the former's power to Noelle.
  • Death by Childbirth: She died giving birth to her second daughter, Noelle. This loss, when coupled with Noelle's lack of magical skill in comparison to her siblings, understandably caused the Silva siblings to mock her for indirectly causing Acier's death. Except her death was actually caused by a devil's curse that will kill when its name is spoken.
  • Death by Origin Story: Her death impacted the Silva family so much that they prevented Noelle from joining the Silver Eagles and made her join the Black Bulls.
  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: She was shown to be a compassionate woman beloved by her children who died in childbirth, with Noelle's siblings resenting her for it.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Implied by her title "Steel War Princess" and her name meaning steel in French. Also, her picture looks like she is manipulating metal to form her armor and weapons and the fact that her oldest son's magic is Mercury, a.k.a. liquid metal.
  • Lady of War: Acier was beloved for her beauty and strength as the Steel War Princess, and Mereoleona described her as "taking to the battlefield as if she was dancing across it".
  • Like Mother, Like Daughter: Noelle looks identical to her, both in regards to her likeness and compassion towards others. Her other children, Nebra, Nozel and Solid, resemble her to various degrees. This is one of the reasons why Nozel didn't want to lose sight of her ever again.
  • Like Mother, Unlike Daughter: Mereoleona states that Acier had unparalleled control and dignity over her magic, unlike Noelle whose magic control and caused major problems with her family; Nozel keeping Acier's death a secret from the rest of the Silvas did not help matters. She gradually develops better control, gaining a spell that clads her in a water armor highly reminiscent of her mother's steel armor.
  • Mama Bear: Became significantly stronger and dealt Vanica a lethal wound after she took Noelle and Nozel hostage.
    "Let me tell you what the strongest thing in the world is. It's a mother protecting her children!!"
  • Meaningful Name: Her name is French for steel.
  • Missing Mom: Acier becomes one to the Silva siblings shortly after Noelle's childbirth resulted in her death.
  • Posthumous Character: She died after Noelle was born, but her legacy still affects the relationship between her children and is remembered fondly by those who knew her. Not only that, her death is also connected to devils and curses. Her freed soul hugs Nozel and Noelle after they defeat Megicula, complimenting them on having grown strong.
  • Red Baron: The Steel War Princess.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: She was only shown in flashbacks as she died shortly after Noelle's birth. Her kindness impacted the entire story — Noelle wouldn't have teamed up with the Black Bulls and be accepted for who she is, and she certainly would be compassionate enough to help her siblings whenever they're in serious trouble.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Mereoleona was the Tomboy to Acier's Girly Girl, being a hostile, aggressive woman with a brutal, physical magic in contrast to Acier, a devoted mother renowned for her beauty and the grace and dignity of her magic.
  • Warrior Princess: Her title was "The Steel War Princess", and Mereoleona looked up to her as the only fighter who she could never defeat.
  • World's Strongest Woman: She was definitely in the running for this while alive, as current all-but-stated strongest woman Mereoleona states Acier was the Always Someone Better to her. Vanica states that she sought her out to fight because she was rumored to be the strongest anywhere. Notably, the reason she died was not due to battle, but a curse whose effects would kill someone regardless of their strength if it successfully works.

  • Amazon Brigade: A squad of female Magic Knights, with the male members serving as errand boys instead of doing the fighting.
  • Color Motif: Blue. The squads' fighters are all women, with the men serving as errand boys.
  • Flower Motifs: The blue rose represents the perfect and unattainable love, which represents Charlotte's feelings for Yami.
  • Shipper on Deck: More like a whole squad of shippers supporting Charlotte with Yami.
  • Something About a Rose: They're the Blue Rose Knights and their symbol is a rose. It represents their status as an essentially all-female squad.
  • Straw Feminist: Aside from Sol, this is subverted with the rest of the squad. Not only are they supportive of Charlotte's love for Yami, but they are very into romance and one of said knights has a boyfriend she's secretly dating. Charlotte and Sol are genuinely surprised when they find out.
  • True Blue Femininity: A Magic Knight squad of mostly women known as the Blue Rose Knights.

Voiced by: Yuu Kobayashi (Japanese), Colleen Clinkenbeard (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 1 (Manga), Episode 3 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Briar

"The battlefield is my partner."

A woman who dislikes men, leading the Blue Rose Knights to become a mostly female faction. Always looking calm and collected, Charlotte harbors a secret crush on Yami, causing her to completely lose her focus when she's around him.

Uses Briar Magic, which transforms her sword into a rose bush she can manipulate at will.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Sol refers to Charlotte as "Sis", much to the latter's chagrin. In the English dub, it's "Char".
  • All Amazons Want Hercules: Believed in this, thinking that no suitor who could defeat her would be strong enough to accept her curse. Fittingly, she fell in love with Yami when he saved her from her curse and told her that he liked tough girls like her, but even then she could count on others for help and not shoulder her burdens alone.
  • Battle Ballgown: Her True Briar Magic: Queen of Briars forms a dress out of thorns and roses that increases the power of her magic.
  • The Beautiful Elite: An effortlessly gorgeous noblewoman from the House of Roselei who's regarded as the most beautiful woman in the kingdom.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: She's reputed as the most beautiful woman in the Clover Kingdom, and a Magic Knight captain who takes her duties very seriously.
  • Beneath the Mask:
    • She puts up the demeanor of the cold, stern captain of the Blue Rose Knights. But around Yami, who she's in love with, on the inside she's smitten with him, wondering why she insulted him and unable to get him out of her head.
    • When Yami and Vangeance are captured by the Dark Triad, she states that they were careless and calls them pathetic. To herself, she's freaking out, wondering if Yami is alive and upset that she still hasn't told him that she's in love with him.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Her, Nozel, and Jack arrive just in time to save some of the Black Bulls from the Third Eye's combined attack and help fight against them.

  • Blue Blood: She's a noblewoman from the House of Roselei.
  • Braids of Action: She has a single braid hanging down the left side of her face, and she's the Captain of an all-female squad of Magic Knights.

  • Broken Pedestal: She fears becoming this, setting herself to a high standard to not disgrace women, what with being the Blue Rose Knights' captain. When she tries to confront her feelings for Yami, Charlotte tells her squad that she's in love with him, fully prepared to resign as her squad prides itself on the strength of women. Funnily enough, her squad members ship her and Yami after finding out and some even admit to actually have secret boyfriends.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: She has a very bad experience of this when it comes to the one she is in love with. When Yami only wanted to ask her about the curse she suffered from, not only did she interrupted him but also run away screaming when she thought he was about to make her confess. Eventually, she admits her love for Yami to her squad and they are supportive about it, much to her surprise. But she's still completely unable to admit it it to Yami. For added hilarity, he shows up to talk to her almost immediately afterward.
  • Can't Hold His Liquor: Vanessa challenges her to a drinking contest. Charlotte lasts about three drinks before passing out. The Volume 13 Questions Brigade states that she's the worst drinker of the captains.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Charlotte quickly develops a rivalry with Vanessa because she feels threatened by Yami's closeness to her. She also has a small internal Freak Out when she wonders what went on between Dorothy and Yami in her Glamour World during the Battle of the Magic Knights Squad Captains.
  • Color-Coded Wizardry: Her blue roses are her weakened Briar Magic from her childhood curse that she repurposed to become anti-curse spells. Her red roses are her original, stronger True Briar Magic that she regained from learning natural mana runes from training in the Heart Kingdom.
  • Combat Stilettos: She wears a pair of wedged greaves for footwear.
  • Combination Attack: When fighting against Vanica and the two Shining Generals, Rill uses his Groundswell of Su Telons: Sirens' Game to form the good mana soil and water needed for Charlotte to grow her briars.
  • Cool Crown: Her spell Queen of Briars forms a crown out of thorns and blue and red roses.
  • Covert Pervert: While at the hot springs, she imagines a naked Yami on the other side of the rock wall. She then promptly blushes and faints.
  • Cursed With Awesome: The curse cast on her as a child turned Charlotte's roses blue and weakened them. By mastering rune arrays, she found the true way to use her cursed briars by modifying her curse into a special anti-curse spell, giving her an advantage against Vanica.
  • Death Glare: She gives one to Rill at the captains' meeting when he wonders if Yami is already dead after being captured by the Dark Triad.
  • Does Not Like Men: She came to be unable to trust men because her many suitors were all talk who couldn't defeat her and as a result, as she believed, could never overcome her curse. The only exceptions are Yami and Julius. It seemingly became a thing in her squad because of her and Sol, with the few men who are among the Blue Rose Knights nothing more than chore boys. However, it's later revealed that her squad members support Charlotte getting together with Yami and some even have secret boyfriends.
  • Duality Motif: Her True Briar Magic: Queen of Briars spell forms a dress and crown out of thorns and roses with her red roses on the left side and blue roses on the right, showing how she's able to use both after the elves' reincarnation and her training.
  • Dude Magnet: She is famed throughout the Clover Kingdom for her looks. Flashbacks show that she had many men propose to her for her beauty and strength, turning them all down.
  • Elemental Barrier: She can form a large barrier of thorns out of her Briar Magic.
  • Elemental Eye Colors: Her eyes are blue like the color of her roses, which interestingly enough were originally red before she was cursed and had her magic weakened.

  • Everyone Loves Blondes: Charlotte has long blonde hair and is famed for her beauty in the Clover Kingdom, with many men having proposed to her.
  • Fairytale Motifs: To Sleeping Beauty. Her magic transforms her sword into roses and thorns, her surname is "Roselei", she's famed as the kingdom's Most Beautiful Woman, and she was cursed by a witch to lose control of her magic on her eighteen birthday, with the curse only broken by falling in love.
  • Flower Motifs: Roses. She leads the Blue Rose Knights, her armor has gold rose designs, and her Briar Magic forms rose thorns. Her roses were originally red but after she was cursed they were permanently turned blue. The blue rose itself is a symbol of unattainable love, representing her feelings for Yami.
  • Flowers of Femininity: Charlotte uses Briar Magic that forms magical roses and thorns, and she's an elegant Lady of War who leads a female squad of Magic Knights.
  • Foil: To Vanica, who she battles when the Clover Kingdom's special assault force invades the Spade Kingdom. Charlotte is composed, stern, and fights out of her loyalty to the Clover Kingdom. Vanica is an enthusiastic psychopath motivated by her hate for boredom and enjoyment in fighting powerful opponents. Charlotte's coldness hides a softer side towards her subordinates, while Vanica is cruel and callous to her Dark Disciples. And while Vanica is the host of the devil Megicula, Charlotte was cursed as a child, with Megicula being the progenitor of all curse magic in the world. Charlotte tells Vanica she dislikes ridiculous women like her before restraining her in a tangle of her anti-curse briars.
  • Foreshadowing: In the fourth popularity poll in Chapter 263, Charlotte is seen wearing a dress that is half red and blue, with red on the left and blue on the right. In Chapter 277, it's revealed that Charlotte studied the Heart Kingdom's rune technique, learning a new spell that creates a dress out of roses, with blue on the right and red on the left.
  • Freak Out: She has a massive one when she thinks that Yami knows that she's in love with him. She leaps out of bed and runs out of her squad headquarters through the streets and crashing into houses, people, and eventually into the city river, screaming the entire time.
  • Garden Garment: Her True Briar Magic: Queen of Briars forms a dress and crown made of thorns with blue anti-curse roses and her original, stronger red roses through using the Heart Kingdom's rune arrays technique, complete with a thorn whip as a weapon.
  • Green Thumb: She uses her Briar Magic to create large rose thorns from her sword.
  • Handicapped Badass: The curse placed on Charlotte as a child weakened her magical strength, turning her red roses blue. In spite of this, she still managed to become a powerful Magic Knights captain without even using her true power, to Rill's surprise. After learning rune arrays in the Heart Kingdom, Charlotte is able to use her full magical power by using True Briar Magic, forming her original red roses, and discover the true potential of her cursed blue roses by making them into an anti-curse spell that absorbs an enemy's curse more with the greater strength of the curse.
  • Head-Turning Beauty: While in a dress with her hair let down at the Star Festival, she draws a small crowd of admirers.
  • Heroic Second Wind: Thanks to Rill's Twilight of Valhalla increasing her magic and making her temporarily invincible, letting Charlotte weaken Megicula's curse runes and stop her from killing Vanica and Lolopechka to complete her manifestation and fight against the devil's blood and steel corpses.
  • Hourglass Plot: She fell in love with Yami after he saved her from her rampaging curse and acknowledged her strength. Charlotte vows to save Yami and show him how strong she's become after he's captured by the Dark Triad to be used as a sacrifice to form the Tree of Qliphoth.

  • Icy Blue Eyes: Blue eyes and usually cold and collected in demeanor.
  • Identical Stranger: She and the female elf whom Rhya tried to go have a drink with have almost exactly the same face. Funnily enough, Rhya, upon meeting Charlotte for the first time, declares that he will beat her and take her to a bar. She's later possessed by said elf.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: Her motivation in becoming a powerful Magic Knight and training hard was to become strong enough to overcome her childhood curse. Ironically, her curse was broken by Yami when he saved her, acknowledging her strength and telling Charlotte that she could rely on others for help which led her to fall in love with him.
  • Indifferent Beauty: She is well aware of her beauty, with many men having proposed to her, but cares very little for it and prefers wearing armor to dresses.
  • In-Series Nickname: Yami calls her Prickly Queen because of her Tsundere tendencies toward him while being completely unaware about her romantic feelings for him.
  • Instant Expert: Called a genius by Potrof for mastering rune arrays easily, with it shown in the anime that Charlotte quickly learned how to use Mana Method with ease.
  • Iron Lady: The cold, serious captain of an all-female Magic Knights squad. Charlotte considers her duty to the kingdom to be her greatest responsibility, being very dedicated to carrying out her duties, and has little interest in her own social life. She also has a tendency to chide her fellow captains for their decisions, which is compounded by her dislike of men.
  • Lady Legionnaire Wear: She wears a segmented skirt along with armor that covers her torso and legs.

    • Her surname is Roselei and she uses Briar Magic that forms rose thorns, along with leading a squad known as the Blue Rose Knights.
  • Not So Stoic: Not long after she's introduced as the Blue Rose Knights' cold, quiet captain, it's revealed she is smitten around Yami and embarrassed within his presence.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: She usually wears her blonde hair in a bun, and is a stern noblewoman who leads a squad of female Magic Knights.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives a scathing one to Baron Balmain for trying to make her his companion for the night at the Star Festival:
    "Go with you? Did you intend to use me as some kind of ornament? And without my consent. What were you thinking? The House of Bamilton? What of it? I belong to the House of Roselei. Did you try to deal with me casually because I'm a woman? Is there a single point on which you are superior to me?"
  • Rescue Romance: An interesting case in that the romance is what rescues her. She was cursed by a witch to suffer Power Incontinence on her eighteenth birthday that would doom everyone around her, with her falling in love being the Curse Escape Clause. She had resolved to defeat the curse with her own power but ultimately succumbed to it. Much to her frustration, Yami of all people was the one who broke the curse.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Asta doesn't recognize her at the Star Festival after she lets her hair down and puts on a dress. She also gains a crowd of male admirers.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: More like Steel Hiding Silk, but she's the cool, collected captain of the Blue Rose Knights and a powerful fighter who prefers wearing armor to dresses, while still regarded as the country's most beautiful woman whose favorite things are her private garden during quiet times and Yami, who she's in love with.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: She fell in love with Yami when he saved her from her rampaging curse and told her that she could rely on others even if she was strong, breaking her curse. He's one of the few men that she doesn't dislike apart from Julius.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: She fell in love with Yami when he saved her from her childhood curse and acknowledged her strength while also telling her that she can rely on others.
  • Something About a Rose: Not only is her squad's sigil a rose, but her Briar Magic turns her sword into a rose bush of thorns. Even her armor is decorated with golden rose designs.
  • Spirited Young Lady: When she was younger, despite being a beautiful noblewoman she turned down the proposals of many men to focus on becoming a Magic Knight strong enough to overcome her curse. Even years after her curse was broken when she fell in love with Yami, Charlotte has tried to avoid her romantic feelings and focuses on her duties as a Magic Knights captain.
  • Statuesque Stunner: One of the taller females in the cast at 171 cm and reputed as the kingdom's most beautiful woman.
  • The Stoic: Almost always cold and indifferent to others. Around Yami though, she's definitely not this, unable to keep her cool and vulnerable to freaking out.
  • Strong and Skilled: The guidebook gives her a 5/5 in Magic Amount and Magic Control. True to form, she has a large amount of magic power as a noblewoman captain, which is increased from being the host of an elf, and studies the Heart Kingdom's rune arrays for half a year, with even Potrof, a Spirit Guardian, calling her a genius at it. She uses her mastery of rune arrays to find the true way to use her cursed briars, making them absorb an enemy's curse more the stronger it is, and combine it with her stronger True Briar Magic red roses.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Although cold and stoic most of the time, it hides a deep infatuation for Yami that she can't be honest about and shows a softer side to her squad.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She prefers wearing armor to dresses and in her past she was more interested in becoming a strong Magic Knight than romance before falling in love with Yami. Despite this, she is still an effortlessly beautiful woman who is a Lady of War through and through.
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • Like all the humans possessed by elves, her mana gets much stronger after being the host of the soul of Charla.
    • She trains in the Heart Kingdom during the six month time skip to learn natural mana runes to use True Briar Magic. And by modifying the curse on herself, she is able to turn it into an anti-curse spell which makes it effective against Vanica.
  • Tranquil Fury: Maintains her composure when Vanica mocks Yami for getting captured by Zenon to her while it's clear that she's very angry, and cooly tells Vanica she hates women like her before trapping her in her anti-curse briars.
  • True Blue Femininity: Notable in that she's a coldly elegant woman who leads the Blue Rose Knights, and her roses are blue. They were originally red but due to her family's curse they were permanently turned blue and weakened.
  • Tsundere: She acts cold to everyone including the love interest Yami, and is thus Prickly Queen (hence his nickname for her). However, she is privately shy and gushy in regards to him.
  • Uptown Girl: She, a noblewoman of the House Roselei who becomes Captain of the Blue Rose Knights squad, had fallen for Yami Sukehiro, a foreigner from another nation who went on to become Captain of Black Bulls, who saved her from her curse by a witch that required her to fall in love to break it much to her dismay.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Is in love with Yami, and shoots Rill a Death Glare when he suggests that Yami might already be dead after being captured by the Dark Triad. She later angrily glares at Vanica for mocking Yami for getting captured, with Charlotte trapping her in her magic.
  • Whip It Good: While using her spell Queen of Briars, she can form a whip of rose thorns to strike enemies with red roses or wrap them in blue roses, binding them the stronger their curse power is.
  • Whip Sword: She usually uses her Briar Magic to transform her sword into a bush of thorns that she uses like a bladed whip.
  • Wife-Basher Basher: A Rare Female Example. Charlotte saved Sol from being attacked by a group of men, which is the reason for her deep loyalty to her captain. She also uses her Briar Magic on a nobleman who wants to make her his companion for the night and grabs her arm, chiding him for wanting to make her his ornament without her consent and in a casual way at that because she's a woman.
  • Women Are Wiser: Thanks to being the only female captain besides Mereoleona (who was only temporarily captain while Fuegoleon was in a coma) and Dorothy (who's usually sleep), Charlotte is the most active female captain and the one who tends to chide the male captains for their rash decisions and failures.
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: According to the Volume 12 Questions Brigade, Charlotte is the most beautiful woman among the characters.

Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (Japanese), Justin Cook (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 1 (Manga), Episode 3 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Severing

A gaunt man who always keeps a sharp smile on his face, and wants to slice up powerful foes. His patience is very limited.

Uses Severing Magic to summon blades of mana on his forearms. Described as able to cut through any material, Jack can also launch these blades as projectiles.


  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: His magic conjures up two huge blades growing from his forearms. Blades that alter themselves on contact with an enemy's magic, meaning that they can counter any magical defense and cut through anything. Nor is he limited to cutting through physical objects, as showing when he overcomes Dante's Gravity Magic by forming blades that cut through gravity.
  • Adaptive Ability: His Severing Magic is this, changing the blades' nature and sharpness to whatever he's trying to cut up, allowing it to slice through Latry's Spatial Magic. As he fights Fana his blades adapt to sever her regeneration.
  • Animal Motifs: Mantis. He leads a squad known as the Green Praying Mantises and his magic forms blades of mana on his forearms.
  • Anti-Hero: Of The Nominal Hero variety. Despite being on the side of good, Jack is still a complete psychopath who loves destruction and fighting.
  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: His appearance makes him resemble a praying mantis, the symbol of his squad. He's thin, tall, wears green, and when using his Severing Magic he gains blades on his forearms that resemble the insect's forelegs. After the time skip, he wears his squad's robe in a way that resembles a mantis's wings.
  • Bare Your Midriff: His outfit exposes his stomach to show just how skinny and lanky he is.
  • Bash Brothers: With Yami. The two may argue a lot, but they're drinking buddies and acknowledge each other as worthy rivals, making them an effective duo when they fight together against Latry.

    "It's your fault for wasting time drawing stupid pictures, ya know?"
  • Classical Hunter: Jack grew up as one under his father, who made a living by hunting birds and small game. His father's death at the hands of the lord of the mountain, a giant bear, when he was 13 spurred Jack to kill it and join the Magic Knights to fight the strong.

  • Expository Hairstyle Change: After the six month time skip the left side of his hair is more closely shaved.

  • Facial Markings: He has a mark that goes from his left eye to his chin. It's not clear if it's a scar or a tattoo, though.
  • Fairytale Motifs: Jack is based on Jack the Giant Killer, where he was a young hunter who killed a giant bear, the lord of a mountain who killed his father, when he was 13. This event began Jack's desire to fight strong enemies, and in the chapter his backstory is revealed in he fights against Dante, who can enlarge himself using his Body Magic.
  • Freudian Excuse: Was taught by his father to not mess with anything that looks stronger than him. Not wanting to live a life of inferiority, this led Jack to hunt the bear that killed his father and began his desire to fight strong enemies.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Went from the son of a small game hunter who taught him not to mess with stronger creatures to a bloodthirsty captain of a Magic Knights squad. It was his desire to not continue living a nobody life that led Jack to want to slice up strong enemies and join the Magic Knights.
  • Green and Mean: He wears green, the color of his squad, and while a Magic Knight Captain he's still a bloodthirsty guy with a love for cutting things up.
  • Has a Type: According to the Volume 18 Questions Brigade, Jack likes a woman worth slashing — in his words strong enough for him to enjoy fighting.
  • Jerkass: It's easy for him to threaten to slice up anyone. He also mocks Yuno for being afraid of the Dark Triad after losing to Zenon despite Yuno's depressed, sullen state and the fact that half his squad was killed.
  • Lean and Mean: While he's on the good guys' side, Jack's still a lanky Blood Knight who stands at 197 cm (6'7") and wants to slice people up.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Jack is very agile, using his magic to boost the strength of his legs to move at incredible speed, and can slice almost anything with his blades.

  • Meaningful Name:
  • Mundane Utility: A festival episode reveals that he uses his blades to cut meat for customers at his food stand.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: He's named after Jack the Ripper, the infamous, unidentified serial killer in London in 1888.
  • Overly Long Tongue: It's always hanging out his mouth. Sometimes he even runs his tongue along his blades when he's especially bloodthirsty.
  • Personality Powers: Can grow magical blades from his body and likes to slice strong foes up. As a child, he grew up as a hunter and slashed up creatures weaker than himself.
  • Pet the Dog: Despite being a bloodthirsty jerk, Jack gains a respect for Magna after he defeats Dante in spite of being a peasant, deciding to cut down a regenerated Dante after him, Luck, and Asta have already gone ahead to not rain on his victory.
  • The Rival: Is this to Yami. They turn anything they do into a competition, like fighting, drinking, and selling food.
  • Signature Laugh: "Kah, Kah".
  • Sinister Scythe: The blades formed from his Severing Magic resemble the curved blades of a scythe. His spells are named "Death Scythe".
  • Slasher Smile: His default expression is a maniacal-looking grin, and is always looking to cut up powerful foes.

  • Sociopathic Hero: He is the captain of a Magic Knights squad, but has a desire to cut up strong opponents, even allies.
  • Spikes of Doom: While fighting Dante with Nacht, he manipulates blades on the surface of his body and sharpens them, letting him cut through Dante's Gravity Magic and injure him.
  • Spin Attack: Jack can spin around while using his Severing Magic to become a spinning wheel that slices targets in its path.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: He has gold eyes. They fit with his look as an Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette but also being a powerful Magic Knight captain.
  • Sword Beam: His magic can unleash flying slashes of mana that slice whatever's in their path.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Yami and Jack squabble with each other often and try to outdo one another, but are still drinking buddies and acknowledge each other as worthy rivals. So much so that when Yami is captured by the Dark Triad, Jack is very adamant on rescuing him.
  • Worf Effect: Jack gets sent flying into a wall by the twin devils, the first devils to appear from the Tree of Qliphoth, just to show how strong the high-ranking devils emerging from the Tree of Qliphoth will be. And this is after he managed to wound Dante, with it stated that the weakest of the devils are just as strong as the Dark Triad.

Uses Bronze Magic, using Bronze to manipulate and create objects. Can notably grant them a poisonous side-effect.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Asta calls him "Bah-hah" after his laugh.
  • Agony of the Feet: A bandit stabbed him through his boot and sock with a poisoned knife after being run over. It wasn't as bad as it appeared to be and Sekke overreacted.
  • Barrier Warrior: His signature magic is a spherical shield adorned with spiked protrusions resembling cannons. So far, he's never gotten the chance to show what it does besides block attacks.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Sekke wants to be a high-ranking Magic Knight to gain the fame and praise he desires despite being a total weakling. He gets his wish when he accidentally "saves" King Augustus during the elves' invasion and spends six months living it up, but it backfires horribly on him when the king forces him to join the assault force against the Spade Kingdom.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Initially appearing to be nice and friendly, he reveals to Asta that he was simply using the latter as a mean to make himself look good. This is subverted when he manages to be somewhat likable after Asta beats him and yells at him for trying to pass on one of his dreams when he thought he was going to die from a poison that turned out to be a simple numbing agent.
  • Break the Haughty: He tries to act like he's a big shot and is definitely rude. However, he's such a Butt-Monkey that you can't help but feel sorry for him.
  • Butt-Monkey: Nothing goes well for him, ever. If he appears, something bad will happen to him, without fail. It seemed like he was getting better in the tournament, being able to meaningfully contribute to his team's victories, but then Finral teleported him to the bathroom stall where Yami was taking a shit and, well...
  • Casanova Wannabe:
    • He has tried to woo Noelle and Vanessa a couple of times. It never works.
    • At the mixer he goes to, the girls are very put-off by his false boasting and leave soon after.
  • Cool Bike: He can create one with his spell Shooting Star.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Asta defeats him in about three seconds.
  • Death Equals Redemption: Parodied. When he's apparently on the verge of dying from poison, he entrusts his dreams to Asta, finally making peace with the fact that Asta defeated him... except he wasn't anywhere close to dying. He soon goes back to being the same asshole in no time.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: He uses Bronze Magic, for both attack and defense.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He's dismayed when it seems that Asta is going to be ruled against and executed, and extremely relieved when the Black Bulls save him.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: The King lauds Sekke for saving his life during the Elf Reincarnation Arc and makes him his bodyguard. Sekke's not about to tell him that he only bumped him out of the way without knowing he was there. He is definitely regretting it when he's chosen to be part of the assault force that will attack the Spade Kingdom among much stronger mages like the captains.
  • Humble Pie: Sekke comes to realize that he's a big-talking jackass quite easily. That doesn't stop him from trying to save face.
  • Hypocrite: Doesn't want people to view him like a bug, but views commoners and the forsaken as such, if not worse. At least until karma comes knocking.
  • Jaded Washout: The result of being bested by Asta was that he went from having good prospects for the Magic Knights to a total loser — in his own eyes, anyway.
  • Laser-Guided Karma:
    • Wanted to become a Magic Knight, but was adamant about not being in the Green Praying Mantises because he hated the idea of being viewed as a bug. Also, he gets poisoned by a bandit after he tried to poison Asta.
    • He wanted to get recognition and merit as a Magic Knight despite being a weakling. He gains the king's favor when he accidentally saves him during the elves' invasion, to the point that he's chosen to be part of the elite force that will attack the Spade Kingdom.
  • Meaningful Name: His magic attribute is bronze and his last name is Bronzazza.
  • Miles Gloriosus: Brags about his role in the royal capital's invasion, even though he wasn't even seen at the scene, and later proves to be a coward during the Magic Knights' attack on Vetto.
  • Mistaken for Badass: He's credited by the king for saving his life, when he was fleeing the Royal Capital on his motorcycle and the king accidentally landed on him. So much so that he garners the king's praise as a powerful mage, with Episode 153 of the anime having Sekke promoted to 1st Class Senior Magic Knight. This bites Sekke in the ass hard when he's chosen, alongside Magic Knights captains, to be part of the assault force that will attack the Spade Kingdom.
  • Overly Nervous Flop Sweat: He can be seen sweating profusely with a look of nervousness on his face when he's seen as part of the assault force against the Spade Kingdom.
  • Overranked Soldier: Thanks to gaining King Augustus's favor when he accidentally "saves" him during the elf invasion and is mistaken by him to be a powerful mage, Episode 153 has him promoted to be a 1st Class Senior Magic Knight despite being a pathetic weakling, and he is chosen to be part of the special force that will retaliate against the Spade Kingdom to his utter fear.
  • Perma-Stubble: When he becomes a member of the guild he wants to be in the least of all, he goes from a clean-faced smooth operator to wallowing and disheveled, and his face shows it.
  • The Resenter: He resents Asta for defeating him effortlessly, and Yuno for stopping him getting revenge on Asta.
  • Signature Laugh: "Bah-hah!" It doubles as a Catchphrase, because he (apparently inadvertently) inserts it into his sentences and exclamations.
  • Sore Loser: He tries to cripple Asta with a poisonous lizard spell after Asta utterly curb-stomps him in the exams. Later on, when Asta and Yuno are being publicly celebrated as the best members of the two highest-scoring Magic Knight squads, Sekke calls out that they're both just peasants with awful magic. Asta and Yuno both soon make him shut up by displaying their powers in front of the crowd.
  • Tempting Fate:
    • When he said he didn't want to be in the Green Praying Mantis guild and acted like a dick to Asta, it was now the only possibility.
    • He thinks that his luck is finally turning around after he protects King Augustus from an elf. Then a group of anti-monarchist mages try to kill them.
  • Terrible Trio: Forms one with two other guys, who accompany him on his date and go with him to the beach to get some girls. They, like Sekke, are complete losers.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: While he isn't nearly as crappy a person after Asta gives him a taste of Humble Pie, he's still annoying.

En Ringard

Voiced by: Satoshi Hino (Japanese), Jim Foronda (English)

Debut: Chapter 120 (Manga), Episode 73 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Fungus

"Big brothers exist to protect the younger, weaker siblings who are born after them."

En's sickly appearance is a facade for a surprisingly determined and energetic Magic Knight. He'll always protect his teammates, whatever the cost.

En uses Fungus Magic. This branch of magic creates sentient, talking mushrooms with cartoonish faces, which can inflict a variety of ailments or protect their creator and his friends.


  • Big Brother Instinct: He believes that protecting one's younger siblings is the duty of the elder sibling and for this reason he scorns Solid for doing the opposite. He himself has ten younger siblings.
  • Blood Knight: Noelle notes that he is far more energetic during battle, at least when speaking through his mushrooms.
  • Creepy Good: He has this lanky and grungy look to him, speaks in something of a monotone and grows mushrooms on people but turns out to be a nice guy and protective brother figure.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: Green hair and green eyes.
  • Elemental Eye Colors: He has green eyes and uses Fungus Magic to form mushrooms.
  • Elemental Hair Colors: His long, unkempt green hair fits well with his Fungus Magic.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite his weak, sickly appearance, he had an aggressive side that he manifests through his mushrooms.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: He has 10 younger siblings, believing an older sibling's duty is to protect their younger ones.
  • Meaningful Name: His surname is French for "old-fashioned". It's not a bad meaning, as he holds what some could call an old belief that older siblings should protect their younger siblings. Ringard can also mean "uncool". He has a messy, sickly looking appearance.
  • Messy Hair: His long green hair is very disheveled.
  • Nice Guy: He's very kind, being protective of his teammates and giving Noelle comforting words after witnessing Solid's bullying.
  • Plant Mooks: Can create sentient mushrooms as part of his Fungus Magic. He's been shown creating mushrooms that release weakening spores, talking mushrooms, a running mushroom that carries him, and a giant mushroom.
  • Standard Status Effects: His mushrooms can release spores that weaken others.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has long green hair.
  • Younger Than They Look: Despite his haggard appearance, he's actually only 24.

Voiced by: Natsuki Hanae (Japanese), Derick Snow (English)

Debut: Chapter 2 (Manga), Episode 3 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Picture

"Let's draw it together! The ultimate painting!"

The Captain of the Aqua Deer. An eccentric young boy whose great magic powers allowed him to quickly climb the ranks towards captain at the age of 19, making him the youngest Magic Knight captain.

Uses Picture Magic, capable of creating anything by making a painting of it. As a result, Rill stands amongst the very few mages capable of wielding several types of elemental magic.


  • Anime Hair: His hair is unusually spiked and also unusually shaped, looking like a pine tree.
  • Art Attacker: He has Picture Magic, turning his paintings into attacks. The more inspired he is the more powerful spells he can paint.
  • Attack Reflector: His spell Game of the Gods paints a beaded deity who sends back spells fired at him. He was inspired to make this spell after seeing Zora fight.
  • Beast with a Human Face:
    • One of his strongest spells is Scream of the Mystical Dragon Vouivre, drawing a wyvern with the head and torso of a woman.
    • He can also paint a harpy that he rides to fly through the air.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Despite his friendliness, he is a Captain and can be quite destructive. After he received his grimoire, he spent all his time painting, lashing out with his magic when people couldn't understand his art. He got better thanks to his butler Walter.
  • Blood Knight: An interesting example. He enjoys fighting if he gets to see powerful spells which provide inspiration for his art.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He loves painting to the point of shirking his duties, but he's still a powerful mage with an extremely versatile magic who became a Captain at 19. So much so that he accidentally destroys his team's crystal from emitting so much magic power out of excitement from fighting Yuno, causing them to lose the match.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Extremely eccenctric, leaving most people who meet him reasonably flabbergasted. That being said, he is capable of displaying normal emotions and still cares about his squad's reputation.
  • Combination Attack: When fighting against Vanica and the two Shining Generals, Rill uses his Groundswell of Su Telons: Sirens' Game to form the good mana soil and water needed for Charlotte to grow her briars.
  • Ditto Fighter: He creates new spells by being inspired by others fighting. He bases his Game of the Gods off of Zora's reflective Trap Magic.
  • Elemental Powers: He can use any element that he can paint. Best seen with his spell "Twin Storms of Fire and Ice" which creates two twisters of the different elements.
  • Emotional Powers: Because his magic is based on his imagination, happiness gives Rill more fuel while negative emotions like frustration restrain it.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: His hair becomes shorter after the six month time skip he spends training in the Heart Kingdom.
  • Harmful Healing: What his Twilight of Valhalla amounts to. With it activated, his allies are temporarily invincible but will have the damage return to them when the spell is over within a few minutes.
  • Has a Type: According to the Volume 18 Questions Brigade, he is attracted to someone who would stimulate his creative drive. He falls for a more mature-looking Charmy, who inspires Rill to draw and become a powerful Magic Knight captain.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Rill ends up unknowingly falling in love with Charmy, who's already infatuated with Yuno.
  • Imagination-Based Superpower: Because his magic is based on creating paintings, Rill is only limited by his creativity. He's been seen casting wells, a wooden multi-headed snake, and a harpy. Rill notes that the more inspired he is the stronger his magic is.
  • Improbable Age: He is only 19, but managed the reach the rank of captain. Asta is surprised by seeing such a young man as a captain.
  • Instant Expert: He effortlessly learns to use natural mana rune arrays, with Potrof noting that he and Charmy are geniuses.
  • Instant Runes: After training in the Heart Kingdom, he learns to use spell arrays, increasing the power of his elemental paintings.
  • Living Drawing: His Picture Magic manifests drawings of creatures that he draws.
  • Longing Look: He has this at the Magic Knights Captain Meeting while thinking about Charmy, who he fell in love when she became more mature-looking while using her Food Magic. A spectator in the crowd and his butler Walter can even tell that Rill is in love.
  • Mad Artist: He uses to be this, lashing out destructively with his magic whenever people couldn't understand his artwork. After his butler Walter slapped him and told him to understand others so that they could understand him, he was encouraged to become a Magic Knight to reach his full potential.
  • Magic Enhancement: His Twilight of Valhalla spell turns out to be this, boosting the magic of companions within its range and making them invincible for a few minutes, with the damage returning once it's over.
  • Magic Wand: Given that his magic revolves around painting, his paintbrush functions as this.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Rill is only one letter off from the word "thrill", which describes his cheerfulness and search for artistic inspiration well.
    • His surname comes from a fellow artist, in this case the music composer Joseph Bodin de Boismortier.
  • Named After Someone Famous: His last name comes from Joseph Bodin de Boismortier, a French baroque composer.
  • Older Than They Look: With his youthful appearance and eccentric personality, most wouldn't expect him to be 19.
  • Physical God:
    • His spell "God's Play" has him paint the titular large bearded god, who redirects an attack sent at him back to the caster.
    • "Master of Valhalla" forms a giant Nordic god out of paint to attack Megicula's corpses with tempests and backup Noelle and Charlotte.
  • The Power of Love: After unknowingly falling in love with Charmy, who rescued him while she used her Food Magic, Rill gains an unstoppable urge to create paintings whenever he thinks of her, and has dedicated himself to becoming a man strong enough for her.
  • Rescue Romance: He falls for Charmy, who saves him after he is taken over by an elf. Because she looks different when using her Food Magic, Rill doesn’t recognize her and doesn’t believe Asta when he tells the truth.
  • Sharing a Body: He has the soul of an elf named Lira, who seems to be friends with Rhya.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name is sometimes written as Rill, sometimes as Lil. The official translation uses "Rill".
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • Like all the humans possessed by elves, his mana gets much stronger after being the host of the soul of Lira.
    • He learns how to create a magical array from Potrof during the six month time skip, enhancing his Picture Magic with runes made of natural mana.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has white-blue hair.
  • Young and in Charge: And pretty much acts like a kid, as shown when he tugs on Asta after finding out that his squad was last place in the rankings.

Voiced by: Mariya Ise (Japanese), Jad Saxton (English)

Debut: Chapter 2 (Manga), Episode 3 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Dream

The captain of the Coral Peacocks. A woman who spends all her time asleep. Her feats are a mystery to many and some wonder how she became a Magic Knight.

Her magic is Dream Magic, allowing her to pull victims into a dream-like world, which she can manipulate.


  • Animal Motifs: Dorothy is depicted with a giant tapir on the cover page of Chapter 222, which is fitting for her powers over dreams and cute appearance.
  • Big Sleep: Enemies who stay in her Glamour World become more drowsy, and die if they fall asleep.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Due to being asleep almost all the time, her Vice Captain Kirsch essentially takes up all her duties. Despite this, when awake she proves herself to be a mage with powerful Dream Magic.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: She's weird and spends most of her time asleep, but she can back that Captain title up.
  • Cheery Pink: Dorothy wears the pink cloak of her the Coral Peacocks and has a matching pink witch hat. When she's awake, she's a cheerful, energetic woman.
  • Cute Witch: She is really cute and dresses like a witch, with a Nice Hat included. Just like Vanessa, she hails from the Forest of Witches.
  • Dream Land: Her Glamour World is this, creating anything that she imagines while she's in it.
  • Dream Weaver: She uses her Dream Magic create anything in her Glamour World.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Since she appears to be always sleeping.
  • The Gadfly: She is this to Noelle by making Asta and Nozel in her Glamour World be openly affectionate with her to tease her, being amused by her flustered reactions.
  • Genki Girl: Dorothy's real personality when she's awake has her unexpectedly chipper, crazy peppy, cheerful, and outgoing. Everyone finds it rather jarring.
  • Heavy Sleeper: She's asleep almost all the time, and doesn't wake up during the Magic Knights Entrance Exam, from a loud crowd at the Star Festival, or her fellow captains arguing.
  • Hyperspace: Her Glamour World can function as this, able to store buildings, injured people, and enemies that she imprisons.
  • Imagination-Based Superpower: Anything that she imagines in her Glamour World becomes real with all the properties that it would have in the real world. However, her magic also manifests anything that can be unintentionally imagined too.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • Dorothy like the girl from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz who ends up in a fantasyland. Her Dream Magic forms a colorful dream world affected by her imagination.
    • The "worth" in Unsworth means enclosure, and Dorothy can create her Glamour World, a space where she can store whatever she needs and manifest anything that she imagines.

  • Nice Hat: Dorothy wears a pointy, pink witch hat.

  • Purple Is Powerful: Her hair is purple and her Dream Magic is very powerful, able to manifest anything she imagines while inside it and killing enemies trapped inside it for too long.
  • Reality Warper:
    • Her Glamour World spell grants her this ability through Imagination-Based Superpower to some extent, as it can create anything she imagines without being able to manage it fully inside her Dream World.
    • To an extent Dorothy can do this in the real world as well with her magic, making giant blocks of stone dissipate with a simple finger-snap.
  • Secret-Keeper:
    • She also knows what really killed Acier as Nozel told her and she's immune to the devil's curse because of her Dream Magic, so she's able to speak its name without dying as long as she's in her world.
    • Played for Laughs when Dorothy tells Noelle that her secret crush on Asta is safe with her in her Glamour World.
  • Sharing a Body: She shares it with an elf named Reve.

    Kirsch Vermillion 

Kirsch Vermillion

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bclover_kirsch_vermillion.png

Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (Japanese), Kyle Igneczi (English)

Debut: Chapter 113 (Manga), Episode 73 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Cherry Blossom

The vice-captain of the Coral Peacocks. The brother of Mimosa Vermillion, he's a shallow man obsessed with beauty. As such, he has a huge hatred of commoners, or more accurately, of anybody and anything that is not up to par with his standards. His skills, though, are undisputed, and his magical insight is his best asset.

He uses Cherry Blossom Magic, manipulating huge amounts of cherry blossom petals to create clones, obfuscate enemies and conjure up whole blizzards.


  • Agent Peacock: His strength in battle is directly proportional to his flamboyance.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Inverted. He is Mimosa's annoying older brother and she is mortified by his flamboyance.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He analyzes Magna and Sol's battle techniques and comes up with ways to improve them in a couple of minutes.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: A believer in this. He's disgusted by anything that he finds "ugly", like peasants and Asta's muscles.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: His quirky behavior doesn't change the fact that he is a vice-captain.
  • Bishie Sparkle: He has these from time to time to make it known that he's very aware that he's a Bishōnen.
  • Bishōnen: And boy, is he aware of it.
  • Black Sheep: Kirsch is this for the Vermillion family. While his sister Mimosa is one of the kindest people in the entire kingdom and his cousins Fuegoleon, Mereoleona and Leopold don't care about social status, Kirsch is more of a typical noble who despises all commoners. Even after he realizes the error of his ways, Kirsch is still the odd one out in the family, because he's also a hammy beauty-obsessed goofball, while the other Vermillions are very serious-minded.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: For all his posing, narcissism and Large Ham tendencies, he is a genuinely badass Magic Knight and competent vice-captain.
  • Campy Combat: A vain royal obsessed with beauty, detesting things he finds ugly like muscles and peasants. He's dressed in his squad's pink robes and uses Cherry Blossom Magic, forming enough pink petals to cover a battlefield and describing his magic as "beautiful".
  • Character Development: He appears to have developed past his Fantastic Racism towards commoners after the Royal Knights tournament, both by being defeated by some, having to work with some and having Mimosa spell out to him that she thinks he is a jerk.
  • Curtains Match the Windows: His eyes are the same color as his vermillion hair.
  • The Dandy: Very much so with his love of things he finds beautiful and vanity. So much that he chose to join the Coral Peacocks instead of the Crimson Lion Kings, the squad closely associated with his family, because he liked their robes.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: More or less. At the end of their match, he admits to Mimosa that the fight was beautiful and has gained some respect for commoners.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: As a means to showcase his Character Development, Kirsch cuts his hair before officially joining the Royal Knights.
  • Family Theme Naming: Kirsch is the name of a type of fruit brandy, similar to how Mimosa is the name of a cocktail.
  • Fatal Flaw: Kirsch has two: his first flaw is his immense Pride and his second flaw is his prejudice towards commoners. Both combine when he refuses to admit that magicless peasant Asta could be a threat and ditches his own teammates after learning of their equally humble backgrounds. He ends up diving straight into Asta's team trap. Even when he is bailed out of there, he's so frantic he can't fight properly.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: One thing he is very proud of is the beauty of his Cherry Blossom Magic. One of the reasons he dislikes Asta so much is because of the fact that he has no magic and makes up for it with his incredible musculature, considering it ugly.
  • Humiliation Conga: It starts with Asta dispelling his petal fog he has covered the entire battlefield with. Then he learns his teammates were commoners the entire time, causing him to ditch them to face Asta's team on his own. They manage to catch him off guard, with a non-magical trap no less and gets Asta's anti-magic sword to the face for good measure. He has to be rescued from there by Sol, goes back to the fight, is hit with the sword in the face again and his team's crystal is destroyed.
  • Important Haircut: Kirsch cuts his long hair short after he changes his outlook on commoners and peasants.
  • Lack of Empathy: Years ago, he saw a Street Urchin stealing food and concluded that poor people were just ugly on the inside.
  • Large Ham: His default mode is giving passionate speeches about beauty while posing dramatically the entire time. This doesn't change at all even after he stops looking down on commoners. As a result, his sister still finds him annoying.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He has long vermillion hair tied in a ponytail, and if anything is too aware that he's a pretty boy.
  • Petal Power: He has Cherry Blossom magic, able to form giant storms of sharp petals.

  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: A member of the Vermillion family and a vice captain of a Magic Knights squad.
  • Self-Duplication: He can use his magic to make clones out of cherry blossoms.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Mimosa is kind to everyone regardless of their background and is very down to earth. Kirsch, on the other hand, is disgusted by peasants and very flashy, always raving about his beauty. Whenever they're together, Mimosa is always annoyed by her older brother's flamboyance.
  • Smarter Than You Look: As flamboyant and vain as he may be, he's still a Vice Captain who does most of his squad's duties in place of Dorothy. He uses his clones to critique Magna and Sol's fighting styles and gives meaningful advice.
  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: His magic creates flower petals, which is fancy and flamboyant - and creates a mess around him when they gather on the floor. Mimosa had to clean them up, and she actually gets pissed at him when the subject comes up.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: After being defeated by Asta and witnessing him fight Magna as well, he develops some respect for commoners and begins treating them more kindly.
  • Upper-Class Twit: He's a royal, as well as a flamboyant fop who believes that all commoners are ugly for their low mana and has a distaste for hard training.

Purple Orcas

    In General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/purpleorcas_insignia.png
  • Animal Motifs: Orcas. The squad members seen thus far have some who are placid, like the current captain Kaiser, and others who are vicious.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: From everything that's been seen of the Magic Knight squads, they're the worst. Their former captain collaborated with the Eye of the Midnight Sun, their vice-captain offered to kill an old woman for asking his help in finding her granddaughter, the squad as a whole has a history of treating peasants in their ranks like garbage, and just overall seem to have the least scruples about who they allow to join them. No wonder they came in second-last in the latest Star Festival, barely beating out the squad led by the youngest Magic Knight captain, who seems to treat being a Magic Knight as a side gig to his painting.
  • Color Motif: Purple. The squad has quite a few members who are poisonously unpleasant.
  • Hufflepuff House: They have the absolute least amount of development and screentime of any of the squads.
  • Token Evil Teammate: By far the most morally dubious of the squads, with the highest number of loathsome members.

The former captain of the Purple Orcas. A con man and morally dubious individual.

Wielder of Transparency Magic, which renders Gueldre invisible and intangible. Can also create faceless invisible mooks.


  • Bad Boss: He's apparently willing to attack his own knights for money.
  • Bad Guys Do the Dirty Work: He and Revchi team up to restrain one of the elves that attacked the royal capital.
  • Boxed Crook: After he and Revchi rob the Shadow Palace, they're recaptured. Julius offers to pardon him, provided he sells the loot at a nice price and donates the money to help rebuild the kingdom.
  • Dirty Coward: Instead of facing justice for his crimes when he's ousted, he disappears, sics invisible knights on the captains and tries to make a break for it before he ends up getting captured.
  • Domino Mask: He wears a purple one which suits his deceptive nature.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • He is shocked to see how dangerous the Eye of the Midnight Sun turned out to be, despite how he previously cooperated with them.
    • His criticism of Revchi is anything but sugarcoated.
  • Fat Bastard: Yami calls him a fat ham, and he kidnaps the mages who maintain the Royal Capital's barrier for rare magic items.
  • Greed: His vice. He's been embezzling and selling top secret magic items, smuggling dangerous potions, and attacking his own men, and he even attacked the barrier mages as part of the Eye of the Midnight Sun's invasion of the capital, just for some magic items.
  • Intangibility: His Transparency Magic makes him both invisible and intangible, letting him bypass attacks. It's not impervious to Asta's Anti-Magic though, letting him get captured.
  • Invisibility: He uses his Transparency Magic to turn himself and others invisible and intangible to magic, which advantageous for him to find information and gain the upper hand in business deals.
  • Mook Maker: One of his spells allows him to create invisible soldiers.
  • The Pardon: He is given one by Julius in exchange for using his business savvy to finance the rebuilding of the Clover Kingdom.
  • Personality Powers: Invisibility and Intangibility is an appropriate power for a coward and a backstabber who thinks that being a Magic Knight captain makes him a Karma Houdini.
  • Reused Character Design: Has the same design as a character from Yūki Tabata's previous manga, Hungry Joker.
  • Tombstone Teeth: He has this in contrast to most of the cast, and is a greedy, slimy guy who sells out the kingdom for money.

  • Blow You Away: Has Vortex Magic that allows him to create a wind vortex that can blow away spells and mana.

  • Happily Married: The Q&A in Volume 18 reveals that he has a wife, who he says soothes his heart. The anime shows her in a cameo after he's possessed.
  • Logical Weakness: Vortex Magic relies on mana detection to dissipate enemies' attacks. Fuegoleon is able to slip through it by erasing his magic and using Salamander as a decoy to defeat the elf possessing him.
  • Meaningful Name: Kaiser is German for emperor. He's an older, dignified man who is the captain of a Magic Knights squad.
  • Mighty Glacier: When possessed by an elf, his magic is depicted as this. His vortexes are very hard to bypass, letting the user remain stationary, while also able to expand and damage enemies.

  • Token Good Teammate: At the time of his introduction, he was the only Purple Orca who isn't a jackass, evil, or both, and Fuegoleon holds the utmost respect for him.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has pale green hair.

Magic Attribute: Ice

The vice-captain of the Purple Orcas. A ruthless man of noble origins.

  • Blue Means Cold: He has blue eyes and wears a blue cape, and is a ice mage famed as the Saint of Pure Ice.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He makes the mistake of directly attacking Zora, who uses his Trap Magic to easily defeat him.

  • Light Is Not Good: He's known as the Saint of Pure Ice with the looks to match, but is an abusive Magic Knight who tries to kill an old woman who wanted help finding her granddaughter.

  • Action Dad: He was a father when he became the first peasant Magic Knight.

  • Fun Personified: A prankster who nonetheless sought to make the world a better place.

  • Strong Family Resemblance: He looked very similar to his son.
  • Trap Master: Like his son Zora, he used trap magic.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Used his wits and trap magic to compensate for his low mana reserves.

Father Orsi Orfai

Voiced by: Yoji Ueda [OVA], Kazuki Nakao [Anime] (Japanese); Brian Mathis (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 1 (Manga), Episode 1 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Flame

The priest in charge of the orphanage.


  • Adaptational Expansion: In the anime, he and the other residents of Hage are shown more after the events of Chapter 1. He's shown to be greatly surprised that Asta's made it into a Magic Knights squad.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Though he's still rather nice, he's shown to have little faith in Asta more often in the anime:
    • In Episode 7, he automatically assumes Asta failed the Magic Knight exam and is already suggesting a party to cheer him up when he gets back. He is completely shocked that Asta managed to get in.
    • In Episode 30, he's proud that Yuno was able to get promoted while assuming that Asta is most likely being a burden to others. He's then shocked again when he finds out that Asta has been promoted as well.
  • All There in the Manual: His full name's shown only in his character profile in one of the volumes.
  • Doorstep Baby: In the anime, he's the one who finds Asta and Yuno on the church's doorstep and takes them in. And he's also the first one to fall victim to how rough Asta is.
  • Good Shepherd: He is a priest who raised Asta and Yuno when they were left on his doorstep.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A very slight case of him being a jerk. He has little faith in Asta's succeeding, but genuinely cares about him, and is shocked when he doesn't receive a grimoire. While he is shocked that Asta passed the Magic Knight exam, he's shown being proud regardless.
  • My Friends… and Zoidberg!: Asta apparently views him this way. He thinks about bringing Sister Lily and the kids to the city but doesn't include him. When Asta sends a letter in Episode 30, he includes Sister Lily, the kids, and the mayor, but not him. This is most likely due to Orsi's blatant Parental Favoritism towards Yuno.
  • Parental Favoritism: He doesn't bother hiding the fact that he favors Yuno over Asta, because Yuno has always been the village's golden-boy while Asta was a screw-up. This is not to say that he doesn't love them both, but while he gives hugs of congratulations to Yuno, he expects Asta will need hugs of consolation. This changes in episode 102, where he recognizes what a powerful knight and fine man Asta has become. He is still crying and gushing over him in episode 103.
  • Parental Substitute: As the head of the church, he has raised Asta and Yuno since they were left there.
  • Playing with Fire: Has Flame Magic in the anime.
  • So Proud of You: He is quick to mention how proud he is Yuno's many talents and endless potential. He praises Asta just as enthusiastically when the pair return during the Reincarnation Magic crisis.

  • Damsel in Distress: In the anime, Salim de Hapshass has her kidnapped as part of his scheme to take Yuno's grimoire. It ultimately fails, and Lily even attacks Salim after he tries to attack Yuno and the others.
  • Hero's Muse: Asta sometimes thinks about her and wants to marry her after he should become the Wizard King. Asta mentions her vaguely when talking to Rebecca, which once causes Noelle, who eavesdrops on him, to mistakenly think that she (Noelle) is the muse.
  • Making a Splash: She has Water Magic, such as Water Creation Magic: Holy Fist of Love.

  • Deadpan Snarker: As shown when all he has to say in response to Asta's not getting a grimoire is "Are you kidding me?" with a blank stare.

  • Robe and Wizard Hat: Looks like the traditional old wizard.
  • Wizard Beard: His age and vocation as the keeper of grimoire is reflected in his long and white beard.

She's a master of defensive Flame Magic, able to heal others.


  • Animal Motifs: Leopards. She's known as the Crimson She-Leopard and can form a living leopard out of her Flame Magic.

  • Combat Medic: She can use her Flame Magic as a defensive shield, but she mostly uses it to heal others.
  • Drop the Hammer: Uses a giant mallet made of fire and emblazoned with her signature leopard motif to reprimand Fuegoleon, Mereoleona, and Gauche for causing trouble in her church.

  • Damsel in Distress: She's tried by the Magic Parliament for Eclat's actions while she possessed her body and about to be executed before Asta saves her.
  • Magical Eye: When possessed by the elf Eclat, it's revealed that Mary has Eye Magic, allowing her to cast enchantments through her eyes.
  • Magic Mirror: Carries one that allows her to communicate with Gauche. This proves useful for tracking down the whereabouts of the kidnapped children.
  • Meaningful Name: Marie means beloved, and she is very loved by her big brother Gauche.
  • Morality Chain: For Gauche. He knows that he would only be a crass criminal without her. She also convinces him to spare Neige as well as going back to help Asta and Sister Theresa.
  • Plucky Girl: Very much this due to her young age. She punches Gauche and convinces him to save the others because they're good people, in spite of the hardship that they went through because of others' greed.
  • Precocious Crush: On Asta. Her brother disapproves and turns into stone and crumbles upon hearing it.
  • Riches to Rags: Was born the daughter of a noble family, but after her parents died, the family wealth was stolen and she and her brother were forced onto the streets.
  • A Saint Named Mary: Marie is a very kind young girl who is still idealistic in spite of her tragic past at the hands of others. She's adored by her older brother, who calls her an angel and goddess.
  • Sharing a Body: Turns out to be sharing the body with the soul of a long-dead elf.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Despite being a cute little girl with a love for clothes and stuffed animals, she punches Gauche and calls him out for his selfishness.
  • Small Role, Big Impact:
    • She has a minor role in the story, but in the Eye of the Midnight Sun Encounter Arc she motivates Gauche to be more selfless, leading him to help defeat Baro and Licht, saving Asta, Yami, Sister Theresa, and the other orphans in the process.
    • Only thanks to her request, Gauche saved Grey from a group of robbers. She would've likely never joined the Black Bulls if he hadn't, and this event led Grey to fall in love with Gauche, which is the motivation for Grey to evolve her magic to save his life when he's run through by Dante's sword.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: She punches Gauche and tells him off for being so uncool, abandoning the others to save her. Telling Gauche that he's a Magic Knight and should save everyone motivates him to return to save the other orphans, Asta, and Sister Theresa.

    Augustus Kira Clover XIII 

Augustus Kira Clover XIII

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/augustus_anime.png

Voiced by: Jun Miyamoto (Japanese), Sonny Strait (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 29 (Manga), Episode 23 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Light

The king of the Clover Kingdom.


  • 0% Approval Rating: He's not hated per se, but his subjects have all thought that they would prefer Julius as their king. It says something when even children can say plainly that Julius the Wizard King should be the actual king when they see him. Even the Magic Knight Captains (the majority of which are of nobility) make it clear they only respect his position as king, not Augustus himself. His lack of talent is not helped by his personality.
  • Always Someone Better: Julius is this to him. Augustus has the title; Julius has the intelligence, charisma, leadership skills and public approval expected from a king.
  • Awesome McCoolname: His first name's an obvious reference to the Roman emperor, although the Clover king's far less impressive.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: His spell "Absolute Monarch of Divine Brilliance" creates a giant image of itself out of light, but is so slow that it's pretty much worthless in a fight.
  • Cool Crown: He always wears it.
  • Emerging from the Shadows: Appeared hidden behind a curtain in Chapter 29, and finally revealed on Chapter 107 to be not as impressive as he may have seemed to be.
  • Foil: To Julius. Julius is the Wizard King, a position earned through achievements, while Augustus is the kingdom's actual king, a title he was born into. Julius believes that the love for the people should be earned through merit while Augustus expects it to come with one's title and background. Julius wants to end the discrimination against commoners in the kingdom while Augustus, like other aristocrats, looks down on the lower-class. And Julius is beloved by the kingdom, a fact that Augustus, whose subjects are indifferent to him, is very envious of.
  • Forgettable Character: He's a little shocked when Julius seems to have forgotten about him, and says during one of Julius's announcements that he wants to stand out, too.
  • Hate Sink: He represents everything to be disliked about the Clover Kingdom's aristocrats, being an incompetent, pompous, and entitled king whose pettiness leads him to want to execute Asta and Yuno.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: He acts entitled to his subjects' respect and brags of how awesome he is, but it's painfully obvious that he is aware of Julius' popularity.
  • Large Ham: In an effort to make himself seem competent, he has a tendency to speak grandiose speeches that fall flat.
  • Light 'em Up: He possesses this kind of magic, much like the first Wizard King.
  • Light Is Not Good: He uses Light Magic and is a self-centered man who does nothing meaningful for his kingdom and holds the classist mindset of the kingdom's aristocracy.
  • Manchild: He throws tantrums when things don't go his way and internally gloats that the tournament "was Julius's idea but now it's mine", like a child who got away with stealing candy.
  • Mis-blamed: invoked He's among the aristocrats who truly believes that Asta is guilty of the events of the Elf Reincarnation Arc.
  • Public Execution: He demands that Asta and Yuno be executed immediately in front of a huge crowd after they criticize him for not being as great as he thinks. Fortunately, Julius convinces him to take it back.
  • The Resenter: He hasn't gotten over Asta and Yuno's remarks about him, hoping that they'll lose soon.
  • Royal Harem: He's shown to be sitting next to two women on his first appearance.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He believes that he's a powerful mage. However, his Light Magic can only form giant visages of himself and is too slow to be effective despite using the fastest of the magic attributes. Latry just casually erases it with his Spatial Magic.
  • Staff of Authority: He carries a scepter when he's in front of the public.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: As the king and a member of royalty, he's blessed with tremendous mana. However, due to being so lazy and having no combat experience whatsoever, he can't use it effectively. Case in point, his only spell seen thus far creates a giant light image of itself. Although this seems impressive, it's slow despite using the fastest magic attribute of them all and has no battle use.

Salim de Hapshass

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/salim_square.png

Voiced by: Yoshiyuki Shimozuma (Japanese), Todd Haberkorn (English)note 

Debut: Chapter 3 (Manga), Episode 5 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Lightning

A noble of the Hapshass family whom Yuno beats with ease in the Magic Knights Entrance Exam.


  • Adaptation Expansion: His magic is never shown in the manga, but the anime has him use lightning magic.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: He is just an arrogant noble in the manga, but in the anime, he also reveals himself to be pretty vengeful and remorseless, as he tries to attack Yuno even after being given a chance to be free as long as he never returns to Hage.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In Episodes 12 and 13, he schemes to take Yuno's grimoire, angry that he made him unable to join the Magic Knights. The filler episodes also make him the son of a congressman who turns out to be corrupt, and Salim's testimony apparently exposes his father's wrongdoings. Salim, even if he isn't involved with his father's corruption, probably is punished in some way for his scheme to take Yuno's grimoire.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Defeated very quickly by Yuno.
  • Demoted to Extra: He had a much bigger role in the one-shot.
  • Jerkass: A very mild one in the manga, but in the anime, he shows off a lot more arrogance.
  • Shock and Awe: Uses this kind of magic in the anime.
  • Starter Villain: He's the main antagonist in the one-shot, essentially playing the same role as Revchi does in the first chapter.
  • Upper-Class Twit: Pretty much a milder version of the noble characters who are far more arrogant and prideful about their status.
  • The Worf Effect: Before he appears, some of the examinees talk about how strong the aristocrats are. Then comes Salim, who invites Yuno to a fight with him and is beaten in a matter of seconds.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He had green hair in the one-shot. In the anime, he's depicted as a blond instead.

    Tetia 

Tetia

Voiced by: Kumi Takaragi (Japanese), Felecia Angelle (English)

Debut: Chapter 68 (Manga), Episode 46 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Wind

A young woman who was the younger sister of the First Wizard King.


  • Blow You Away: She uses Wind Magic.
  • Bridal Carry: Licht carried her like that when he saved her from her tornado, which set the path to her becoming his bride.
  • Death Is Cheap: At her wedding, someone using Light Magic attacked the elves and killed her along with everyone who attended the ceremony. It's revealed much later she was healed by Nero.
  • Foreshadowing: Chapter 205 has Nero standing in front of a lifeless Tetia's body, wondering what she should do and if there is anything she can do. As the elves' souls are exorcised in Chapter 213, two children with pointed ears are seen watching. These children are seen again in Chapter 265, which reveals that they're descendants of Licht and Tetia, who was still alive and healed by Nero as well as pregnant with a surviving twin. Their descendants went on to establish the elf village Elysia in a Strong Magic Region in the Heart Kingdom.
  • Her Heart Will Go On: Her husband and his tribe were killed by her fellow royals at her wedding, which led to the death of one of her unborn children and her to be grievously injured. In spite of this, after being healed by Nero Tetia went on to raise her surviving twin child, whose descendants would establish an elf village in the Heart Kingdom.
  • Identical Ancestor: Tetia's female descendant through her and Licht's surviving twin child heavily resembles her as well as Mimosa, her distant niece.
  • Inept Mage: In the words of her brother, "Your attribute is wind. How did you get caught in a mana tornado?"
  • Interspecies Friendship: She was friends with the elves.
  • Interspecies Romance: She was Licht's bride and was even pregnant before the wedding.
  • Maligned Mixed Marriage: Her family, save for Lumiere, disapproved of her relationship with Licht, an elf.
  • Posthumous Character: She’s long dead by the present day events of the story. However, it’s revealed much later that she didn’t die during her wedding.
  • Princess Classic: She was a princess among the humans and fits all the usual traits: beautiful, kind, seeking peace between everyone. She wasn't even jealous of Patry's idolization of her fiancé.
  • Rebellious Princess: She was a carefree young princess of the Clover Kingdom who fell in love with Licht, an elf disliked by humans. Her family disapproved of their relationship, and were tricked by Zagred into killing all the elves and Tetia at her wedding.
  • Rescue Romance: She met her future husband when he rescued her from a magic tornado.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: In flashbacks she’s seen in few appearances to be Lumiere’s sister and Licht’s bride, with the hope that their marriage and child would unite the humans and elves before she was tragically killed at the wedding by the royals tricked by Zagred. However, it’s later revealed that she was alive and healed by Nero and pregnant with twins, one of whom survived. Her descendants would go on to establish a village in the Heart Kingdom where Licht, Rhya, Fana, and Vetto would live after the defeat of Zagred.
  • Someone to Remember Him By: After Licht’s death at their wedding and the loss of their unborn son, she gave birth to their surviving twin child.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Licht. They fell in love shortly after they first met and became engaged with her pregnant, but her royal family disapproved of him, what with Licht being an elf. Their wedding ended horribly with the royals, convinced by Zagred that the elves wanted to harm them, with the rest of the tribe dead and Licht turning himself into a demon to prevent Zagred from taking over his body and Lumiere forced to kill him. They're only able to reunite in the afterlife five centuries later when Licht's soul is unsealed and he passes on along with the other reincarnated elves.
  • Widowed at the Wedding: Licht turned himself into a demon to prevent Zagred from taking over his body, leading Lumiere to have to kill him. It's later revealed that Tetia survived thanks to Nero and gave birth to her surviving twin child.

Voiced by: Jason Douglas (English)

Debut: Chapter 70 (Manga), Episode 48 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Spatial

A nobleman who is the head of the House of Vaude. He is the father of Finral and Langris.


  • Abusive Parents: Of the emotional kind. He derided Finral for being unable to use offensive Spatial Magic, comparing him to Langris and eventually disowning him.
  • Parental Favoritism: He favors his younger son Langris over Finral for his stronger magic. Flashbacks show that he would scold Finral for not having Langris's aggressive magic.
  • Space Master: He uses Spatial Magic like the rest of the House of Vaude.

Liliane Vaude

Voiced by: Minami Takahashi (Japanese), Lindsay Seidel (English)

Debut: Chapter 70 (Manga), Episode 48 (Anime)

A noblewoman of House Vaude. She is the mother of Langris and the stepmother of Finral.


  • Parental Favoritism: She favors her son Langris over her stepson Finral. She outright told Finral that she only loves Langris because he isn't her child.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: As a stuffy noblewoman, she wears her hair pined back in a bun.
  • Wicked Stepmother: She treated Finral like garbage, trying to push him as far away from her family as possible because Finral wasn't her child. Combined with his father's discrimination against those with "weak" magic common in high society in the Clover Kingdom, Finral's confidence was completely destroyed and he was disowned for being seen as worthless. Even when he saves their lives from a possessed Langris, his stepmother is an Ungrateful Bitch.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/finnes_square.png

Voiced by: Eri Akiyama (Japanese), Amanda Lee (English)

Debut: Chapter 117 (Manga), Episode 75 (Anime)

A royal woman betrothed to the next head of House Vaude. She is King Augustus's great-niece.


  • Arranged Marriage: Arranged to be married to Langris. She was originally supposed to marry Finral, but he was disowned by his family. Finral declares his intention to fight for her hand after the elves are defeated. She's very happy when she hear this. After the six month time skip, they're engaged again.
  • Birds of a Feather: Both her and Finral are very kind and humble people who do not have high opinions of themselves. When they first met, they were almost instantly attracted to each other.
  • First Love: She's Finral's. She loves him back, and they've both held onto these feelings even after the years when Finral was disowned.
  • Ill Girl: She has a chronic illness.
  • May–December Romance: With Finral, whom she would've married if he hadn't been disowned. She's almost 5 years older than him, which is almost unheard of in this kind of setting among nobles, with their first meeting happening when Finral was still a teenager and she was an adult. While Finnes was insecure about it, both of them wanted the Arranged Marriage to happen. But then Finral was kicked out of the family for Langris to be engaged to her instead.
  • Nice Girl: She's incredibly kind, complimenting Finral for being so good-hearted and trying to stop a possessed Langris from attacking others despite her poor health.
  • Perfectly Arranged Marriage:
    • Had this with Finral, as she is supposed to marry the next head of House Vaude and was originally going to marry him before he was disowned in favor of his younger brother. It's heavily implied that they are both still attracted to each other.
    • Finral announces his intention to reclaim his position in the family to Langris and Finnes with the purpose of making Finnes his wife. Finnes responds with asking him to make it soon. After the six month time skip, they're engaged again.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: She has long black hair and pale skin, and Finral was immediately attracted to her when they first met.
  • Royal Blood: She is a member of the House of Kira, the kingdom's royal family.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: She's been in one flashback and appeared for one short scene in the present, but the aftermath of her ill-fated romance with Finral shaped him into the person he is at the start of the series.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her first name can be rendered either as "Finnes" or "Finesse". The official translation uses the former.

    Damnatio Kira 

Damnatio Kira

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/damnatio_square.png

Voiced by: Hiroshi Tsuchida (Japanese), Alex Organ (English)

Debut: Chapter 216 (Manga), Episode 121 (Anime)

Magic Attribute: Scale

A royal of the House Kira, one of the royal families of the Clover Kingdom along with related to the King. He's the Chairman of the Clover Kingdom's Magic Parliament.


  • Beauty Mark: He has a mole on his chin.
  • Black-and-White Morality: Subverted in that this piece of work's sense of justice is very biased. He stated at Asta's trial that there were two options regarding the outcome of the war with the elves; either Asta, a devil user be blamed for the events, or the Magic Knights would have to be investigated. As the Magic Knights (the overwhelmingly vast majority are nobility) are the core of the Clover Kingdom's defenses, he called the choice obvious.
  • Corrupt Politician: As the chairman of the Magic Parliament, he essentially is the legal authority of the kingdom. He also tries Asta and Nero in a sham trial to find someone to blame, even attempting to kill Marie to do so, as the alternative would mean blaming the Magic Knights (who it should be noted had no control over their possession) and getting into the legal scandal of so many nobles being tried as criminals.
  • Everyone Has Standards: The anime-exclusive arc of the Devil Banishers shows that, in spite of being willing to frame innocents in order to save the kingdom, he's more concerned about the imminent threat of the Spade Kingdom than condemning Asta and Nero, coming across as more professional compared to his more radical subordinates.
  • Good Hair, Evil Hair: He has black hair sliced back, and is a ruthless judge.
  • Hate Sink: His extreme desire of his warped justice causes him to intentionally make Asta and Nero to be pariahs when aware that they're not responsible, showing that he cares more about politics than the truth. He goes as far as trying to execute an innocent little girl to get what he wants.
  • Judge, Jury, and Executioner: He serves as this for Nero and Asta's trial.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: During the arc of the Devil Banishers, he gets angry at Gauche when he goes to his office and destroys it due to believing that he's the one who ordered the kidnapping of Marie. Unpleasant he may be, considering that Gauche did that based on not-so-solid evidence and that Damnatio is proven innocent thanks to Marx's magic, he's right at being mad at Gauche and wanting him to pay for his actions, with even Gauche himself acknowledging that he screwed it up big time.
  • Kangaroo Court: A variant, in that Damnatio tells Asta point-blank there are only two ways this trial is going to go: Asta and Secre (preferably both but at least Asta) are going to be exposed as devils and blamed for the destruction, or the Magic Knights who were possessed by the elves will be. As most of the Knights are of nobility and would obviously cause an uproar over such a ruling, plus they are the cornerstone of the kingdom, Damnatio is going to do his damnedest to condemn Asta, a "mere peasant", as the Lesser of Two Evils.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Played with but not followed through. In the Devil Banishers Arc, after Gauche trashed his office and accused him of a crime he didn't commit, Damnatio, despite having a lot of bad qualities himself, was angered enough to want to take action against Gauche before Gauche was saved by Julius. But considering the maladjusted jackass Gauche was being that entire time and was basically committing borderline assault against everyone during that arc, Damnatio would have been well within his right to punish Gauche to the harshest extent possible.
  • Meaningful Name: "Damnatio" is Latin for "condemnation", fitting for a merciless judge.
  • Power Nullifier: His Scale Magic can do this by balancing out the magic power of two sides to shrink spells.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Upon his debut, several characters act like he's a well-known and important individual, but there's literally no mention of him beforehand, despite the fact that his power-balancing ability would have been extremely effective against the elves.
  • Scales of Justice: He has Scale Magic, carrying this with him in judging his enemies as well as those testifying. As a power, it adjusts balance to regulate spells' power, which he can change by tipping the scale manually or adjusting the weights.
  • The Stoic: He usually has a stern, emotionless expression. Even when the Black Bulls interrupt the trial, he's barely phased.
  • The Unfettered: He's willing to execute an innocent young girl to blame Asta and Nero for the elves when fully aware that they weren't responsible. He tells Julius that if the Black Bulls' investigation isn't enough and the kingdom is threatened that he'll judge all the Magic Knights and Julius himself. He also condemned his own father at one point, showing that not even family matters to him and his sense of justice.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: When it comes to preserving to stability of the Clover Kingdom, no action is too far for him.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He has no problems sentencing children to death on the spot, which is what he tries to do with Marie, but she is saved by Asta drawing out his Black Asta form, which is the plan to expose his devil power. As if that wasn't bad enough, he threatened to have the orphanage Asta and Yuno grew up in investigated and the people who work and live there arrested, even the children.

  • Evil Sorcerer: Experiments on children, and throws out Ruka onto the snowy exterior of the laboratory once he finds that he's useless.
  • Fat Bastard: Noticeably plump and a thug who's kidnapping children for money.
  • Greed: He agreed to abduct the children for Sally only because he wanted an easy way to make some cash. He couldn't really care less about what Sally plans to do with their extracted mana or what happens to the children.

  • No Body Left Behind: All that's left of him after being cut up by Mirror Slash is his coat.
  • One-Winged Angel: After Sally injects him with dark magic he turns into a giant mud monster.
  • Psycho Serum: Sally applies a dark magic syringe item on him, and he transforms into a mud monster, losing his humanity.
  • Uncertain Doom: In the manga, he's last seen being frozen by Neige when he tries to attack Asta. The anime makes it more clear, with all that's left of him being his tattered coat.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Doesn't really care about experimenting on children and making them possibly unable to ever use magic.

Magic Attribute: Storing

A woman whose body absorbed magic and life from those near her. She adopted the devil in Asta's grimoire, Liebe, as her son.

Her magic let her store mana-less things inside other objects.


  • All of the Other Reindeer: She told Liebe that she would give him, a devil, a run for his money in being loathed, likely due to her body's special condition.
  • Bag of Holding: Her magic acted as this, letting her store large amounts of mana-less things inside tiny bottles that she carried around.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: She left Asta at the church because her body steals magic and life from things near her.
  • Death by Origin Story: She dies in her efforts to stop Lucifero from taking over Liebe's body.
  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: She was Liebe's loving adopted mother, and killed by Lucifero while he tried to take over Liebe's body. Her death is the reason he wants to take over Asta's body to kill all devils.
  • Dramatic Irony: She left Asta at the church because she was worried about her condition, only being able to adopt Liebe due to his lack of magic. It turned out Asta also lacked magic, meaning she never had to give him up in the first place.
  • Energy Absorption: Her body steals magic and life from whatever's near her, forcing her to live by herself outside the village and abandoning Asta. She adopted Liebe because as a devil without magic he was immune to her condition, and she saved him from Lucifero by forcibly draining the highest-ranking devil's magic power until he was forced to leave Liebe's body, despite being fatally impaled in the process.
  • Good Parents: She treated Liebe with love and affection, giving her life to save him from being possessed by Lucifero. The reason why she left Asta at the church was because she was afraid her anti-magic would be detrimental to him living.
  • Hates Being Alone: Not so much as hate, but for all her joyful personality, Licita is hurt that due to her condition of absorbing magic and life, she has to live all by herself to the point of giving up her own son Asta, leaving her with no one. Thus why she was so grateful to Liebe, as just as she saved him from his abusive lifestyle, he saved her from being alone.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Her magic seemed to be more of a useful power for storage, but before she died she was able to use it to store Liebe inside the five-leaf grimoire, keeping him safe from Lucifero for years.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: She died from getting impaled through the gut by Lucifero when he tried taking control of Liebe's body.
  • Interspecies Adoption: Licita, a human woman, took in and raised Liebe, a devil, because as a devil with no magic he was impervious to her body's condition.
  • Like Parent, Like Child: Her son Asta has her same cheerful, optimistic demeanor. So much so that Liebe, her adoptive son, was reminded of her by Asta when he repeated her same words to him.
  • Mama Bear: She held back against Lucifero and absorbed his magic, getting stabbed in the process, to stop him from possessing Liebe. She sealed him in the five-leaf clover grimoire to protect him from Lucifero before dying.
  • Missing Mom: To Asta and Liebe. She left Asta at the church due to her condition, and was killed while preventing Lucifero from taking over Liebe's body.
  • Mundane Utility: She typically used her magic to store things like firewood into her small bottles. But before she died, she used it to seal Liebe inside the five-leaf grimoire, keeping him safe from Lucifero while growing up.
  • Posthumous Character: She's dead by the time of the story, having sacrificed herself to save Liebe.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her volume profile spells her name as "Richita".
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Her son Asta is a male version of her, even having the same Idiot Hair.
  • Trauma Button: When Lucifero is about to take Liebe away, Licita recalls the pain of being forced to leave her son Asta behind, and instantly goes Mama Bear to protect him so she doesn't lose someone again.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's hard to talk about her without mentioning that she's the adoptive mother of Liebe, the devil in Asta's grimoire, and Asta's mother.
