Main Characters

    Izetta 

Izetta

Voiced by: Himika Akaneya (Japanese), Skyler McIntosh (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/izetta_2.jpg

Also known as "the White Witch." She is a fifteen year old girl who is the last in a bloodline of witches, and is said to be the most powerful in generations. When she was a child, she lived as a nomad, travelling around different countries with her grandmother in order to keep her powers a secret. In one of those travels she met Finé who became her first friend. She has the power to manipulate whatever she touches, and has been generally seen manipulating a giant rifle to fly.


  • Action Girl: The moment she wakes up from being a Human Popsicle she blows up half the plane with her abilities.
  • Adorkable: As shown in the second episode, Izetta tends to get like this whenever she interacts with Princess Finé or shows her devotion, such as when Izetta refuses to eat while Princess Finé is unconscious and her stomach growls causing her to blush uncontrollably.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Izetta's devotion to Princess Finé seems to go beyond mere friendship. Not to mention, she has blushed more than a few times when interacting with Princess Finé both as children and in the present. Becomes far less ambiguous as the series progresses, especially in Episode 7 when she outright states she loves the Archduchess. The events of Episode 11 really push the boundaries between "ambiguous" and "text."
  • An Arm and a Leg: Izetta loses the use of both her legs following her survival of her Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Armor-Piercing Attack: Subverted in episode 3. She got swords to fight tanks but they couldn't penetrate their armor.
    • Played straight in episode 5. This time Izetta used lances and they did the job just fine. Justified as said lances have roughly Math! about ten times the power of the swords.
  • Armor-Piercing Slap: She surprisingly slapped Finé in Episode 11 to get her out of her funk and not to surrender.
  • Badass Adorable: She doesn't stop being adorkable even in the midst of dishing out pain against the Germanian army.
  • Badass in Distress: Episode 9 ends with the clone of the Witch Sophie using a crystal to nullify Izetta's powers and chaining her up. Thankfully, Hann and his men are able to save her
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: The reason for Izetta's devotion to Finé; she was the first person Izetta met who didn't think magic was terrifying (partly because she was young and naive). Izetta has frequent flashbacks to the time that Finé defended her from an angry mob.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: While she does not want to harm people, she will do what is necessary to protect those she loves.
  • BFG: She wields a PTRS-41 longer than she is tall, not to mention that it weighs about 20 kilos.
    • Intro shows her wielding an even more massive gun (partially based upon the Lahti L-39) specially modified so that she can properly wield it as a broom.
  • Big Damn Heroes: She is this to the Eylstadt forces in Episode 3, especially Jonas.
  • Big Good: She shares this role with Finé.
  • Blood Magic: Izetta has the power to control whatever she touches, but she can use her blood as a proxy to extend the range of this power.
  • Bodyguard Crush: Possibly has one for Finé.
  • Born in the Wrong Century: Her grandmother warned Izetta that her power is too great for the era they live in now.
  • Break the Cutie: Izetta's backstory involves this until she befriended Princess Finé.
  • Bridal Carry: It is practically a running gag that Izetta will carry Finé in this fashion at various times throughout the series.
    • Izetta carries Finé this way after catching her in the air, while flying on a rifle at the end of Episode 1.
    • Izetta continues to carry Finé this way during the first half of Episode 2.
    • At the end of Episode 3, Izetta carries Finé this way in the aftermath of the battle.
    • During Finé's coronation in Episode 5, she has Izetta carry her like this in front of reporters to demonstrate Izetta's abilities.
    • In Episode 11, she carried Finé in this fashion for a romantic ride on her broomstick.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Her magical abilities do not originate from within her body but rather from the magical energy that exists outside. If she's in a region without ley lines, she can't access any of her magical abilities.
    • At the end of series, the magical energy in the ley lines has apparently be permanently drained from the earth and sent into the sky. Izetta is now paralyzed and powerless.
  • Cast from Hit Points: Much to Finé and Bianca's horror, the Magic Stone will most likely have this affect on Izetta, especially if she overuses it. At the end of the series, while Izetta did make extensive use of the stone, she still has enough life to live on.
  • Character Development: Subtle. When Izetta is first introduced, she constantly goes through Heroic Self-Deprecation, such as saying she is not worthy of the Princess' gratitude and she is very nervous speaking to new people in Episode 4. Later on in the series, she still has some self worth issues, but they have lessened. She becomes more assertive when it comes to making decisions, and she doesn't feel as nervous when speaking with new people as shown in her interactions with Lord Redford and Gromon in Episode 7.
    • In Episode 11, she becomes bold enough to slap Finé when she is about to pass the Despair Event Horizon, and she convinces her not give up. She also finally begins calling Finé by name.
  • Child Soldier: Episode 10 reveals that Izetta is only fifteen years old, and she has been fighting on the frontlines for Elystadt regardless.
  • Childhood Friends: With Princess Finé
  • Curtains Match the Window: Izetta has red hair and red eyes.
  • Cute Witch: Both as a child and in the present day.
  • Declaration of Protection: Episode 2 ends with Izetta promising to protect Princess Finé's country. In Episode 12, Izetta's efforts payoff. Elystadt is saved, and the Germanians are eventually defeated.
  • Determinator: Izetta refuses to give up on a fight. As seen in Episode 10, she refuses to give up fighting despite her injuries. This is deconstructed due to how Finé can see how Izetta will keep fighting for her sake which further causes Finé to blame herself for Izetta's condition.
  • The Drifter: Izetta and her grandmother used to travel as nomads from town to town without staying very long due to Izetta having difficulty controlling her powers.
  • Did They or Didn't They?: With Finé in Episode 11.
  • Disabled Love Interest: The "love interest" part is heavily implied in the finale to Finé.
  • Disappeared Dad: No mention of Izetta's father has been made.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: During Episode 7, Izetta has a difficult time concentrating on the map of the ley lines while Finé is brushing her hair in front of her.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Her childhood scenes consistently depict her as being barefoot. The official promotional artwork depicts her as wearing boots that leave her toes bare (a la the cast of Naruto) rather than regular shoes.
    • Averted for her outfit as the White Witch (as seen on the main page), which feature closed-toe boots instead.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Almost the entirety of episode 2.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Zig-zagged. While she is extremely powerful and can handle battalions of troops on her own, it depends on whether or not there are ley lines she can utilize magical energy otherwise she is Brought Down to Normal. In Episode 5, when the Germanian forces attack in an area Izetta can't utilize her abilities, she works with Finé's inner circle to pull off a bluff. Rather than using a lookalike, Izetta chooses to go to the front line personally and puts her life on the line rather than letting someone else risk theirs.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Izetta's normal outfit outside of battle has this with her legs.
  • Flying Broomstick: Or rather, boomstick. Izetta eschews the traditional broom for a anti-tank rifle to fly into battle. When she was a child, she did attempt using a broomstick to practice her abilities of flight. In Episode 3 she also uses a medieval jousting lance to fly.
    • In Episode 11, she takes Finé on a flying broomstick ride.
  • First-Name Basis: Izetta finally drops the "Hime-sama" and starts calling Finé by her given name in episode 11. This makes Finé extremely happy and she demands that Izetta keep calling her that way from then on.
  • Forceful Kiss: She is on the receiving end of this by Berkman's experiment in Episode 8, so she can obtain a blood sample from Izetta which triggers her.
  • A Friend in Need: Knowing Princess Finé is in danger is enough to spring Izetta into action.
  • Friendless Background: Prior to meeting Princess Finé, she had no one to call a friend.
  • Gag Boobs: Her rather large assets are often pointed out in comic situations, such as when Lotte can't close one of Finé's corsets around Izetta's chest.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Izetta slaps some sense into Finé during Episode 11, and she convinces Finé not to give up.
  • Girl in a Box: Izetta was, apparently, captured by Germanians and sealed in a steampunk Suspended Animation chamber.
  • Go Out with a Smile: When Izetta commits her Heroic Sacrifice, she is happy knowing she is giving it her all for Finé's sake knowing her actions to save Elystadt might cost her life. Ultimately subverted when Izetta is revealed to have survived, and as seen in a picture shown in the final episode, is alive and well but unable to walk.
  • Healing Factor: Subverted. Izetta's magic doesn't allow her to heal things. Play straight since the Magic Stone seems to have given her back her ability to walk and fight at the cost of causing her pain and potentially drain her lifespan.
  • Held Gaze: With Finé during Episode 7.
  • The Hero: Shares this title with Finé.
  • Heroic Rematch: She prepares to engage in one with Sophie in Episode 11 due to being able to fight her on more even terms now. In Episode 12 she ultimately manages to win.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Izetta went into the final battle fully preparing to die. She uses the magic stone to absorb all the magic in the world and defeat Sophie. Izetta ultimately manages to survive the sacrifice and is alive and well as shown in this picture, but she is confined to a wheelchair even three years after her battle against Sophie under Lotte's care with Finé visiting her when she can.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: She grew up isolated and self-loathing, leading to some serious self-esteem issues. Even after saving Princess Finé she still feels worthless. She goes as far as to say she is not worthy of being Princess Finé's friend.
  • Holding Hands: She holds Finé's hand in various promotional artwork as well as the opening and closing theme. At the end of Episode 4, she walks hand in hand with Finé on the way to Finé's coronation, and they hold hands again during Finé's coronation in the following episode. And episode 7 has them lie hand in hand on the same bed, with a rather long Held Gaze.
  • Homoerotic Subtext: Izetta herself Lampshades the implications of Finé and her sharing room and bed in episode 7.
    • A few scenes later, when a Britanian pilot asks her if she's close to Finé, and Izetta answers that she loves her, there's a cut of the bomber crew pondering her answer in awkward silence before politely changing the issue to how "is nice to have someone to protect".
    • In Episode 8, the "subtext" part has become suspect when the story of the Prince and the White Witch (whom were Star-Crossed Lovers) was revealed. The Prince and the White Witch in the story parallels Finé and Izetta, respectively. It further becomes suspect when Finé cross dresses as a prince and has Izetta dress up as a princess for the party along with asking her to dance.
    • In Episode 11, the broom ride between Izetta and Finé seems to heavily imply that they're beyond mere "subtext" at this point.
  • Hope Bringer: Shares this role with Finé. Elystadt finally believed they had a chance of winning the war, and they even had temporary peace for a few months because of Izetta's efforts. This made her defeat after Sophie's stone renders her powerless all the more devastating.
  • Hot Witch: Still a Cute Witch as well, but she has an ample bust and a nice figure that her clothing tends to emphasize.
  • Human Popsicle: Izetta was kept in stasis.
  • I Can Still Fight!: She declares this both in Episode 10 and 11. This proves to be more true in the latter episode thanks to the Magic Stone.
  • I Can't Dance: Izetta can't dance to save her life, and she knows it. In episode 6 Elvira had her practice with Bianca as partner. Izetta warned them that it wasn't a good idea but Elvira insisted. Poor Bianca's feet will never forget the painful experience.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: She used to be this before meeting Princess Finé. She stated that she started to like herself and her abilities a little thanks to their friendship.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Though the "love interest" part is only ever implied (even then, heavily so, and with less subtelty as the series goes on), Izetta frequently mentions how she doesn't feel "worthy" of Princess Finé.
  • I Owe You My Life: Izetta acknowledges multiple times that Princess Finé saved her life when they were children.
  • Idiots Cannot Catch Colds: Subverted. She caught a cold for the first time in episode 8. She said she has never had a cold in her whole life before.
  • It's All My Fault: The poor girl constantly blames herself for the wound Princess Finé was inflicted with when she defended Izetta from a mob.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: In Episode 4, Fine's advisors refer to Izetta as a weapon. The Germanians refer to Izetta as a 'specimen.'
  • Jumped at the Call: Even though it goes against her grandmother's wishes, Izetta doesn't hesitate to join in the fight to protect Eylstadt because it is her friend's country despite Princess Finé wanting Izetta to run and save herself.
  • Kissing Discretion Shot: It is highly implied she and Finé kissed in Episode 11.
  • Last of Her Kind: Izetta is the last witch in the world as indicated by the title. A flashback scene with her grandmother sadly confirmed to Izetta the other witches were probably dead, and she will be the last.
  • Ley Line: Izetta's power originates from the ley lines across the land. As such, there are places where she can use her powers and places where she can't.
  • Light Is Good: She wears a white battle outfit to represent herself as the 'White Witch of Elystadt' and she is one of the nicest people you could ever meet.
  • Magical Girl Warrior: She is a Cute Witch who is fighting in the war.
  • Marked to Die: In Episode 8, the Ambassador of the United States of Atlanta considers Izetta to potentially be a greater threat than Germania. He all but states she needs to be eliminated just as much as Germania due to the potential threat she holds.
  • Maybe Ever After: It is not made clear if Izetta and Finé become a couple but the final scene shows Finé visiting a wheelchair-bound Izetta at a cottage located at the same pond where they first met each other.
  • Messianic Archetype: Izetta seems to be heading in this direction after being declared the Second Coming of the White Witch, the legendary savior of Eylstadt.
  • Missing Mom: The fate of her mother is currently unknown, but she is presumably dead.
  • Modesty Shorts: Wears these under her oversized army coat in Episodes 2 and 3.
  • Nice Girl: She is extremely kind, to the point she tries to minimise casualties among her enemies when she fights, and shows obvious regret for the ones she had to kill.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Izetta manages to save Elystadt from Sophie and Germania. However, it costs Izetta her ability to use magic and the use of her legs.
  • The Oath-Breaker: Justified example. She made a promise to her grandmother that she had to break to save Finé.
  • One-Woman Army: Thanks to her magic, Izetta can stand against an entire army… and win.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: According to Izetta's grandmother, Izetta's power is greater than any witch in generations.
  • Power Incontinence: When Izetta was younger, she had difficulty controlling her power at times which is why she and her grandmother had to travel a lot. This was showcased in Episode 4 when she was cornered by villagers, and it was taking everything she had to prevent her power from going out of control.
  • Protagonist Title: Obviously, she's the eponymous character of the show.
  • Red Is Heroic: She has matching red eyes and hair, and she is one of the heroes of this story.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: The universe conspires to make Izetta the main target of almost every lewd situation in the show.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Princess Finé.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: She is willing to break the promise she made to her grandmother for the sake of helping Finé. And despite Finé telling her not to fight, she does it anyway, after seeing how distraught her friend was when hearing about how bad Eylstadt's situation was, particularly the soldiers doing a Last Stand at Coenenberg. Izetta jumps into the fight on her own, and manages to deliver a Curb-Stomp Battle to the Germanian forces.
  • Second Coming: Finé declares her the Second Coming of the White Witch.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Izetta was originally a nomad living in poverty and never was particularly concerned for her appearance. Clean her up properly and put her in an elegant party dress, however, and she looks just like a fairytale princess.
  • Ship Tease: With Princess Finé. The devotion she has shown to the Princess has caught some people's attention.
  • Shrinking Violet: Despite being one of the most powerful witches in history, she's painfully shy and introverted in daily life. She only becomes assertive in the battlefield.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Sophie tries to give her a Breaking Speech regarding her devotion to Finé, but Izetta refuses to listen to her. Sophie however drives her into a trap and defeats her.
  • Storm of Blades: She uses her magic to perform one against the Germanian army in Episode 3.
  • These Hands Have Killed: Immediately after she uses her magic against the Germanian fighter planes and watches them crash in the second episode, Izetta regretfully laments that the pilots are dead. In the third episode, while she destroys planes and tanks, she noticeably attempts to avoid killing the foot soldiers and chooses to pin them down.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: When Izetta is not fighting, she tends to be a girly girl in comparison to Finé. This is emphasized when Finé has Izetta dress up as a princess while she dresses up as a Prince at a party in Episode 8.
  • Undying Loyalty: Zig-zagged. She is loyal to Princess Finé, but she follows her heart first and foremost and would go against Finé's wishes if she feels it's necessary.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Izetta wears them in Episode 2 and 3. Justified due to Eylstadt forces not having a lot of clothing to lend her, and it was a better option than wearing the hospital gown.
  • Wig, Dress, Accent: Bordering in Paper-Thin Disguise, as she uses a simple pair of Clark Kent glasses (literally: the same model) when on a pie run.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Opposition: While Izetta has great publicilty among the soldiers fighting on the front lines, the United States or Atlanta are very wary of her to the point they consider invading Eylstadt and killing her just for being so powerful.
  • Woman in White: Her battle outfit is entirely white.
  • Worf Had the Flu: In Episode 9, Sophie uses a magic stone to nullify Izetta's ability to use magic which leaves her vulnerable. The injuries she suffers renders her temporarily unable to fight as seen in Episode 10.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has red hair, which stands out because everyone else has plausible hair colors.

    Finé 

Ortfiné Fredericka von Eylstadt (Finé)

Voiced by: Saori Hayami (Japanese), Mallorie Rodak (English)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/izetta_3.jpg

A childhood friend of Izetta and the Princess of the small duchy of Eylstadt, she leaves her country to meet a representative of the Allies in the neighbor Westria, but is captured by Germania, before being rescued by Izetta. She becomes the Archduchess of the country soon after.


  • A-Cup Angst: While Finé is bigger than an A-Cup, she she seems a little jealous of how Izetta, Bianca, and Elvira have larger breasts than her.
  • Action Girl: First downplayed when she doesn't hesitate to disarm a soldier when she has the opportunity, then subverted when she's shot before she can turn off the gun's safety.
  • Absolute Cleavage: The purple dress that Finé borrows in the first episode has a rather large translucent V-shaped region in the front.
  • All for Nothing: Finé has wished to accomplish two goals. Protect her country Eylstadt and make sure Izetta can survive. In Episode 8, the United States of Atlanta plans on fighting both Germania and Eylstadt rather than fighting alongside them as allies, and they plan on eliminating Izetta.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Her affection towards Izetta seems to be far greater than merely as a friend. It is notable that she dreamed of her first meeting with Izetta and thought of her several times prior to potentially offering herself up for a political marriage. She even refers to Izetta as her 'partner' during the party in Episode 8, and she didn't even consider dancing with anyone else.
  • Arranged Marriage: Subverted. Prior to the beginning of the series, she rejected the Prince Henry's offer. Due to the oncoming Germanian invasion, she decides to change her mind for the sake of her people. However, the offer falls flat when it turns out the invasion has already begun.
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: Following the death of her father, she is coronated as the new Archduchess and also uses the occasion to reveal Izetta and her magic to the world.
  • Badass Normal: Episode 1 proved that she is capable of some badassness without the need of magic.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Princess Finé is respected and well-loved as a kind and caring princess in Eylstadt, but she is capable of self-defense and will not back down into surrender.
    • In Episode 4, especially in the English dub, she chastises her advisors when they refer to Izetta as a weapon.
    • In Episode 8, she is not pleased when she witnesses Berkman's experiment give Izetta a forceful kiss which causes Izetta to bleed. While she was somewhat courteous to Berkman beforehand, she becomes downright hostile towards him afterwards.
  • Big Good: After her coronation as the Archduchess of Eylstadt, she shares this role with Izetta.
  • Book-Ends: The first and last scenes of the anime feature Finé meeting Izetta by the same pond.
  • Casual Danger Dialog: While they are being chased by Germanian fighters in the second episode, Princess Finé comments on how she never imagined her dream of being able to fly with Izetta would come true like this.
  • Character Title: Finé's name is used in the Eleventh Episode of the series.
  • Childhood Friends: With Izetta
  • Children Are Innocent: She was not afraid of Izetta when they were children partly because of this. She immediately believed Izetta was a good witch, and she was right.
  • Compressed Hair: She keeps her waist-length hair in her headscarf when donning her civilian disguise.
  • Consummate Liar: While Finé is generally a honest person, she is capable of being this for political purposes as demonstrated in Episode 1 when she convincingly lied to Lord Redford about her father's condition.
  • Crossdresser: During a party in Episode 8, she dresses up as a Prince while she has Izetta dress up as a Princess.
  • Damsel in Distress: Zig-zagged. While she understandably cooperates with her captors because they have a gun to her head, they killed her remaining bodyguard, and she can't best them physically, she takes the first opportunity she has to attack and disarm one of her captors.
  • Defiant to the End: While Princess Finé does not die in first episode, she shows she is willing to be defiant till the end for the sake of her people since she had no way of knowing Izetta would awaken and save her.
  • Deuteragonist: While Izetta is the title character and the main focus of the opening, Finé clearly shares the spotlight in the story. The series is just as much about her struggles as about Izetta's background, and more generally about the two's friendship/romance.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Subverted. During Episodes 10 and 11, Finé appeared to be crossing that, but a slap from Izetta in Episode 11 convinces her not to give up.
  • The Determinator: She refuses to back down and or surrender even if Germanian soldiers tries to capture or shoot her. While she almost gives up in Episodes 10 and 11, Izetta slaps some sense into her.
  • Did They or Didn't They?: With Izetta in Episode 11.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The entirety of Episode 1.
  • Go Through Me: As indicated in Izetta's flashback, Princess Finé protected her from villagers and was wounded in the process.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Finé was hoping that having Izetta display her power to the allies would get them motivated to help them fight the Germanians. In Episode 8, she and Izetta are successful in getting the allies to oppose Germania. What they don't know is that the United States of Atlanta considers Izetta to be as great of a threat to them as the Germanians and more or less plans to kill Izetta.
  • Good Is Not Soft: When Finé is angry, especially when it comes to mistreating Izetta or fighting for her country, she makes herself very clear. She is even willing to shoot her enemies herself as showcased in Episodes 1 and 2.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Finé has a scar on her left side that she received when she protected Izetta as a child from being gouged by a pitchfork and a bullet wound when she attempted to fight back against the Germanians.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She cares about others before herself.
  • Headbutt Thermometer: Uses this method when she is caring for Izetta while she is sick in Episode 8.
  • Held Gaze: With Izetta during Episode 7.
  • The Hero: Shares this title with Izetta.
  • Heroes Love Dogs: She had an adorable corgi named Dorothée as a pet when she was a child.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Finé offers to marry a foreign prince for political reasons, but as soon as Fiery Redhead Izetta shows up, it becomes clear that she has no romantic interest in anyone else. Partly an inversion, as this is also the first time that Finé gets rescued instead of taking matters into her own hands.
  • The High Queen: She becomes this in Episode 5, after her father succumbs to his illness. And she definitely has the dignity and charisma to hold the position.
  • Holding Hands: She holds Izetta's hand in various promotional artwork as well as the opening and closing theme. At the end of Episode 4, she walks hand in hand with Izetta on her way to her coronation and again during the said coronation in Episode 5. She holds Izetta's hand while sharing a bed with her during Episode 7.
  • Homoerotic Subtext: The obvious affection she shows towards Izetta is subject to this, especially in Episode 7. In Episode 8, the "subtext" part becomes very suspect considering many parallels are made between their relationship and the Legend of the White Witch (where the two protagonists are Star-Crossed Lovers).
    • Bianca gets angry at the Darker and Edgier version of the tale because it reminds her of Izetta and Finé.
    • Then in Episode 11, it's heavily implied that "subtext" might not be the correct word to describe the relationship between Izetta and Finé.
  • Hope Bringer: She shares this role with Izetta.
  • I Regret Nothing: Princess Finé clearly does not regret defending Izetta when they were children despite the injury she received.
  • It's All My Fault: She blames herself for Izetta's condition in Episode 10. She admits she was too arrogant due to Izetta's previous victories when she should have been more cautious. She breaks down upon seeing Izetta refusing to give up for her sake.
  • Kissing Discretion Shot: It is highly implied she and Izetta kissed in Episode 11.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: She is this to Izetta. Izetta admitted to herself she used to be lonely and hated herself before becoming friends.
  • The Load: Zig-zagged. Justified in the second episode due to her being shot and not having any magic powers to help Izetta, so she needs to rely on Izetta to escort her. However, when Izetta's power is running out, it is Princess Finé's idea to use the gun they are flying on, and she fires it at the Germanian fighter plane herself.
  • Maybe Ever After: The series does not make it entirely clear if she and Izetta become a couple. However, Finé is shown visiting Izetta in the very last scene in a cottage by the pond of their very first meeting as children.
  • Missing Mom: While it is known her father is sick, the status of her mother is unknown.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: In Episode 10, she breaks down upon seeing Izetta's condition which she greatly blames herself for. When she sees that Izetta refuses to stop fighting for her sake, Finé has a breakdown.
  • Nice Girl: It's why she is well-respected among her people. That doesn't mean she's weak though.
    • During the second episode rather than recruiting Izetta to help her country repel the Germanian invasion, she tells her friend to escape.
  • Nice to the Waiter: She is kind to all her subjects as well as officials from other countries.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Princess Finé protected Izetta from a literal witch hunt and was wounded in the process, but she doesn't regret defending her friend.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: Princess Finé is shot through the right arm towards the end of the first episode and nearly dies from the injury during the second.
  • Only Friend: To Izetta.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: She would often sneak out of the castle with only a headscarf to conceal her identity to visit a cafe as she loves the pies there. But it turns out the cafe's owners and the royal guard knew about it all along.
  • Pretty Princess Powerhouse: She may look like a frail young girl, but in episode 1 she proves to be surprisingly competent at using her intelligence and good old action skills to escape from a train filled with Germanian soldiers.
  • The Promise: Finé promises Izetta to help her bring peace to the world. At the end of the series, Finé knows that even though there is peace now it won't last forever. However, she still plans on working to fulfilling the promise she made with Izetta.
  • Recognition Failure: She does not recognize Berkman during Episode 8. However, this is justified because they only briefly met once during the first episode which happened weeks or months ago along with the fact he was wearing a mask during their second meeting. The said first meeting was cut short by a train tunnel darkening the train and Finé being more focused on escaping rather than having a conversation.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Izetta.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Princess Finé is willing to do what she needs to do to save her country and people.
  • Scars Are Forever: She stills bears the scar she got as a child when facing angry farmers.
  • Ship Tease: With Izetta. The first scene is Princess Finé dreaming of her first meeting with Izetta, and when she sees Izetta awaken, she refers to Izetta as "My White Witch."
  • Shower of Angst: She takes one after Tobias dies, but refuses to let her determination waver nonetheless.
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: At the end of the series, Lotte asks Finé if the peace after the war will last. Finé tells her no, but she will keep doing her best to fulfill her promise to Izetta to make peace possible.
  • Spanner in the Works: She's this to Germania. Due to her partially opening the capsule Izetta is being held in, it causes Izetta to be partially awakened. That results in the Germanians being forced to transport Izetta on a plane. After they capture Princess Fine shortly after, they make the mistake of transporting both girls in the same plane. Izetta's partial awakening causes difficulties with the plane which results in Princess Fine being shot and coming into Izetta's view. Upon hearing and seeing Princess Fine, Izetta awakens and the Germanians' plans are completely derailed.
  • Stepford Smiler: As seen in the first episode, she puts up a convincing smile when conducing negotiations with Lord Redford as she lies about the status of her father's health.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: She dresses as a prince for a costume party. (In which she dresses Izetta as a princess, no less). One of the other party guests even questions if she is a girl.
  • Sweet Tooth: She has a weakness for pies.
  • Taking the Bullet: Or rather the pitchfork. It is a nonfatal version with Finé taking a blow meant for Izetta from an angry mob.
  • Tears of Joy: During Episode 3, she cries them after Izetta manages to survive the battle while calling her a fool and thanking her for saving her people.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Outside of combat, Finé is the tomboy. This is emphasized when Finé has Izetta dress up as a princess while she dresses up as a Prince at a party in Episode 8.
  • Tomboy Princess: Though she comes off as a Girly Girl despite her warrior status to modern audiences, she is a tomboy by 1940s standards. She does have graceful feminine manners, but she doesn't hesitate to jump into action or resort to violence if needed. She also looks dashing as a prince (see Sweet Polly Oliver above).
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Despite her being known as a tomboy, she has a girly love for pies and sweets.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Finé wears her hair like this in Episode 8 when she dresses as a Prince for the party.
  • You Are in Command Now: With her father's death, Finé becomes the new Archduchess.
