    Solomon's Resistance 
A group of rebel magicians who joined Solomon before he became king in order to free the non-human species that were enslaved by the humans and overthrown Alma Torran's Orthodox government.
  • The Atoner: Solomon and his vassals had all helped power the mind-altering towers in the past. But now they seek to destroy all these towers, and whisk away the avatars of the divine staves, in order to atone for all of their sins.
  • Badass Crew: They are all powerful Magicians.
  • Defector from Decadence: After they learn what terrible things that the humans have been doing to all the other sentient species.
  • Downer Ending: Despite the Everyone Dies ending already well known before the beginning of the Alma Torran Arc, the end of Alma Torran is still incredibly tragic.
  • Foregone Conclusion: It's well-known from the beginning that regardless of the good things that happen in the flashback, everything will go to hell for Alma Torran. We even know who will be among the ones to betray Solomon, though not why.
  • Freudian Trio: The first three Magi. Sheba as the overworked Superego who believes in Solomon's actions and tries to enforce peace to honor his sacrifice, Arba as the cynical Id, who ended betraying Solomon in favor of her devotion to Ill Ilah; and Ugo as the conflicted Ego, trapped between his loyalty to Solomon and his fears for the changes which Solomon made.
  • La Résistance: Fighting against the Magician Orthodox, who believing themselves the chosen of God, have enslaved all non-humans through mind control.
  • Magic Staff: The staves work much the same way Djinn metal vessels work, but with no djinn.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: They "won" the war against the Orthodox Church and freed the other species, but a great part of the resistance group couldn't feel happy about it when their final battle against David costed them their families.
  • Third Eye: They all have a third eye when they use magic. Chapter 220 reveals that their third eye receives magoi, which enables them to use their magic.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Solomon and co. feel all sentient life is equal, not an idea that many other humans and magicians agree with.
  • Wizards Live Longer: The users of the divine staves are able to halt their ageing if they feel like it.
  • You Are Too Late: The group manages to escape David's prison in just 15 minutes, to go and save everyone left at their base. Unfortunately, by the time they arrive; all they find is their base reduced to ashes, and all the dead civilians along with Tess and Setta's horribly burned corpses.

The king of Alma Torran and the leader of La Résistance in his youth. He's related in some way to Aladdin.

Voiced by: Hidemitsu Shimizu (Japanese)

  • Abstract Apotheosis: He practically became Free Will, as White Rukh is in opposition to Ill Ilah's Black Rukh and its destiny.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Blue hair in the manga, black hair in the anime.
  • All-Loving Hero: Solomon loved every single being in Alma Torran equally and his goal was to create a world where everyone would be free and equal.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: He literally became the White Rukh, aka Solomon's will.
  • Asleep for Days: After the battle against his father, he slept for two days straight.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: A powerful magician who was able to unify the many species in Alma Torran.
  • The Atoner: He deserves special credit because his father is the one who created the mind-altering towers. Solomon thus believes himself to be responsible for freeing the non-human species from their 500 years of enslavement.
  • Badass Bookworm: Always seen with a book in his hands when not fighting.
  • Battle Couple: With Sheba.
  • Big Damn Heroes
  • Big Good: The original one.
  • Bishōnen
  • Braids of Action: A long, single braid in his young days.
  • Broken Pedestal: Several of his former comrades react badly when they find out how he supplanted Ill Ilah and shared the Rukh with everyone. They believe that by imposing his will upon them in such a way, that he's now no different from his tyrannical father David.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: The brooding boy to Sheba's gentle girl. She is able to see when he's really hurting inside and, unlike even Arba or Ugo who agreed to mind their place; she promised to be his equal, something Solomon desperately wants.
  • Brutal Honesty: Told to Sheba, right in her face, that she was a despicable woman and, that in his eyes, she's a worse monster compared to the other species she looks down at. Although his opinion of her got better, when he later observed Sheba playing with a manticore and genuinely having fun. When she had a Heel Realization and understood the extent of suffering her magic caused to her manticore friend, he declared that he likes her now.
  • Cain and Abel: He and Arba are technically siblings and they seemed to be really close. At the end, Arba becomes his ultimate enemy and decides to destroy his "fake world".
  • Celibate Hero: He's too focused in the rebellion to pay attention to Sheba's feelings for him, but also he subconsciously considers himself unworthy of being loved and keeps himself away from that topic. Subverted in Chapter 225, when he finds himself in a growing relationship with Sheba and, later on, gets her pregnant.
  • The Chains of Commanding: He had to renounce his beliefs and convictions, for the sake of being a strong leader to the people.
  • Come with Me If You Want to Live: Tells Sheba this the first time they meet.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: His hair and eyes are blue.
  • Deity of Human Origin: He was a human until he supplanted Ill Ilah as the god of the universe.
  • Disappeared Dad: He became the White Rukh, leaving behind the pregnant Sheba and never getting to meet his son Aladdin.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir":
    • He dislikes it when Arba calls him "young master" and has told her countless times to quit it. He especially wants her to stop treating him as someone above her, because she has known him his whole life and the one he wants to hold his Morality Chain.
    • He also tells Sheba she doesn't need to be especially respectful towards him, just because of being the son of the ruler of the Magician Orthodox.
  • Drunk with Power: Being the central pillar of La Résistance and the one people look up with awe and hope in their eyes, he's afraid that he could become this; like his father, who holds the Magician Orthodox's hearts in his hands and went all A God Am I.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Starts to let his hair loose after deciding to take the king role. Notice that his Rukh form has the braid again, meaning that he's free of being something he didn't wanted to be and can be himself again.
  • The Faceless: At least while in his days as king. When younger, he was identical to Aladdin.
  • The Four Loves: His philosophy is that if you can love others, you're worthy of living. Ironically, having experienced little to no love in his life; he craves it deep inside, but considers himself unworthy of it and says that its enough for him with just seeing those close by feeling it.
  • The Gadfly: He goes around pressing people's Berserk Buttons in hopes of finding someone that actually gets mad at him. Sheba turns out to be that person, and he often jokes about her growing Big Eater tendencies and for using her pregnancy as an excuse.
  • A God I Am Not: He refuses to believe that his vast power makes him a god. Unfortunately, he's having trouble convincing the other species he liberates who keep trying to worship him.
  • The Good King: To Alma Torran.
  • Hair Decorations: Solomon and Arba wear a moon-shaped accessory on their foreheads.
  • Heroic Sacrifice
  • He’s Back: During the battle against Al-Thamen, his body suddenly regains consciousness and he is able to lead the chiefs of the 72 species into combat.
  • Hope Bringer: Solomon has the uncanny ability to bring the better out of people, even those who hate themselves, and give them hope to become the very best that they can be.
  • Hot God
  • Hypocrite: He goes around with his team and the other species, preaching about the importance of love in one's life, but he has no time or even interest in finding love for himself, whilst he has never had a loving relationship with his own father. Solomon himself recognizes it.
  • I Am Not My Father: His biggest fear is turning out like David. That the other species are practically worshipping him is just making him even more uneasy.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: All he wants is to be seen as an average, normal person, with flaws to not be ignored and have people trustful enough to tease him about them; not some god nor proxy nor even a king or ruler, who's alienated from the people below them.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: He confessed to Sheba that the real reason he ran away from home to start the revolution was because he wanted a world were he could have friends who didn't considered him as someone above them.
  • Improbable Age: Spearheaded the rebellion against the Magician Orthodox, and was the most powerful of all magicians, at around the age of just 12-15.
  • Innocently Insensitive: He often calls Sheba a brat. Though he does it as just a joke and to point out how she's the Tagalong Kid, he doesn't realize how much it hurts her.
  • Intergenerational Friendship:
    • With Arba. He's in his teens (later early twenties) while she's around 100 years old and she's been his closest confidant and somewhat of a mother figure to him since he was a little kid. He considers her existence to be particularly important because of this.
    • Also, with Ugo. They have being friends since Solomon was 12.
  • Interspecies Friendship: He and the Mother Dragon.
  • Just a Kid: He keeps treating Sheba as just the team's Tagalong Kid, even when she's already a 17 year old young woman, to her great dismay. At the end of Chapter 224, he declared that he would stop doing it after seeing how much she has matured and has learned of her own troubled past.
  • Kill the God
  • Like Brother and Sister: He most likely feels this way about Arba. Since not only she has been with him all his life and acted as a sort of mother/older sister figure to him, and given that Arba was created by David they could even be considered to be real siblings. However, that relationship was destroyed by her betrayal.
  • Lonely at the Top: While his friends try to cheer him up saying that he would be a great king, Solomon knows that now, no matter what he says or does, a line will be drawn between him and them, leaving him all alone atop a pedestal he never wanted to be on. Sheba sees this and promise to remain at his side, as his equal.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • Messianic Archetype: His desire of giving to everybody freedom from Ill Ilah's destiny cost him his body and humanity.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Named after King Solomon, an ancient King of Israel in Christian, Islamic, Judaic and Bahai scripture, who supposedly had power over demons.
  • Nay-Theist: He believes that Ill Ilah is really a mindless lump of power rather than a god. Notice that, whenever the group is praying to Ill Ilah for protection and victory, he's just smiling instead of actually praying.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: His sacrifice was to ensure everyone he loved was able to get the freedom to choose their own destiny instead of following that of Ill Ilah. Almost every magician misunderstood his actions as a way to enforce his own will over them and betrayed him, destroying everything he achieved.
  • Non-Idle Rich: Solomon was born to a noble family. Not that he cares; as he says that he is no longer a "young master", nor is Arba his servant.
  • Offered the Crown: The people he liberated beg him to become their ruler, believing that this is the only way they won't fall prey to infighting.
  • One Head Taller: Than Sheba.
  • Overly Long Name: Solomon Jehoahaz Abraham.
  • Parental Substitute: Wanted to be this for Sheba, since she reminded him of his younger self. When she starts to see him as something more, he's reluctant in giving up this attitude towards her, because he wants to be a better father than his own was.
  • Patrick Stewart Speech: In Chapter 220. He gives a Rousing Speech to the other species about how love and the will of living for those they cherished made them equal to humanity.
  • Physical God: A magician so powerful that everybody started to look up to him as a god; something he utterly disliked.
  • Puppet King: Quite literally. Since Solomon's soul became the White Rukh, his physical body is nothing but a shell that can't rule over his people and try to make peace between the species and the rebellious magicians. Sheba has to now take his place as the leader and ruler, with Solomon only a figurehead.
  • Rapid Aging: His body aged a few years, with Young Face, Old Eyes, so as to emphasise that his soul is now gone.
  • Rapunzel Hair: His braid is almost as long as his body.
  • Reality Warper: Thanks to Ugo's theories, he can literally bend the fabric of time and space and break the laws of physics. Of course, he's the only one powerful enough to use the theory in practice.
  • Rebel Leader: He was the leader of La Résistance against Alma Torran's Orthodox government.
  • Rebel Prince: He's practically the prince of all magicians, yet he's defying the Magician Orthodox who are led by his own father, for the sake of the other species.
  • Reluctant Ruler: He only becomes king because everyone begged him to lead them.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: With Sheba. She always tries to get him out of the blues, by being as plucky and optimistic as she can be.
  • Screw Destiny: After founding out how the Black Rukh actually leads to a destiny of suffering, his will became one with the Rukh to create free will and give it to all sentient life.
  • Selective Obliviousness: He knew very well about Sheba's feelings for him, but he turned a blind eye to it because of his own issues about having never been loved.
  • Soulless Shell: After his soul became the White Rukh itself, his physical body became an aged shell of his former self that only talks about equality and is unresponsive to even Sheba. He gets better in time for the final battle with Arba.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Sheba.
  • Stepford Smiler: He had to bring himself into putting on a smile, when accepting that he had to become the only thing he was trying never to be: a king.
  • Stop Worshipping Me: He hates it when others worship him, because he's afraid it might go to his head. He even goes so far as to smash the statues they build in his honor.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: To his father. And his son, Aladdin, looks just like a younger version of him.
  • Super Empowering: Modified some staves, so that the other species' leaders were able to each use a specific kind of magic.
  • Supporting Leader
  • Team Dad: Of La Résistance. Sheba even said he and Arba are like the dad and the mom of the team.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Arba says that when he was a kid, he was an annoying and incompetent Bratty Half-Pint who thought he was better and stronger than anyone. He eventually recognized that this was true, hence his change.
  • The Xenophile: Solomon is fascinated with any non-human species' cultures, and thus he was like a child in a candyshop, when the manticores invited him and his group to spend the night within their underground city.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: All he longs for is a world were everybody can live as equals, but life and circumstances keep breaking his hopes of seeing his dream as a reality into pieces. When Ugo declares that the existence of Rukh makes all life equal, he seems clearly glad to know that everybody is indeed equal in some way after all.
  • Wife Husbandry: He took Sheba in after saving her when she was 12 years old and decided to act as her surrogate father. Years later, Sheba fell in love with him and asked him to date her. Solomon tried to resist entering a romantic relationship with her both because of his father-like relationship to her and his subconscious thought that he's unworthy of being loved, but he eventually gave in and even had a child with her. It helps he's only five years older than her.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has blue hair.
  • You Remind Me of X: He tells Sheba that she reminds him of his former self, so he wants to make sure she doesn't revert back to the way she was so she can go down the right path.

Sheba

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sheba_converted_8029.png

A little girl who was saved by Solomon when she was about to die from giving energy to a Mind-altering tower and the viewpoint character of the Alma Torran arc.

Voiced by: Eimi Okada (Japanese)

  • Action Girl: Becomes one after the 5-year timeskip, thanks to becoming an active member of La Résistance and its third strongest magician.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Pink hair in the manga, black hair in the anime.
  • Adorkable: Her constant and failed attempts at courting Solomon, asking him to go on a date with her, are all the proof you need.
  • Badass Adorable: This cutie patootie can kick great amounts of ass.
  • Barrier Warrior: Uses her powerful bolg for both offence and defence.
  • Battle Couple: What she eventually becomes with Solomon.
  • Berserk Button: Sheba will never forgive anyone who speaks or even thinks ill of Solomon. This is one of the reasons she refused to hear the "requests" of the other magicians who would only talk about how "arrogant" was Solomon for replacing Ill Ilah and "taking control of their fate" when Solomon actually wanted to give them free will.
  • Braids of Action: She has a long, single braid after the time skip. Surely, in a way to resemble Solomon.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Her fanatical ways can be quite annoying. Thank God she grew out of them.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: The gentle girl to Solomon's brooding boy. After realizing that Solomon is really broken from the alienation he has always had throughout his life, she's the only one that decides to be his equal. She also tries her best to be supportive and caring for him, but without being a pushover and calling out his worst tracts, thus doubling as the energetic girl to his savvy guy.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: While she recognises that she and Solomon may never happen, she still wants to be as close to him as possible. She insisted to go with Solomon and Ugo to see the Mother Dragon, because Arba already got the chance to go to see her with Solomon several times.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Pink hair with pink eyes.
  • Declaration of Protection: After standing up for Solomon against some corrupt magicians of the resistance who were manipulating the Berserkers and Centaurus species into being suspicious of him, just for being his father's son; she declares that she believes in Solomon and will protect him no matter what.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She at first didn't get along with Solomon, since he called her a despicable woman and his ideals went against her fanatic beliefs. Once she began to open up to other species, she and Solomon became friends and she came to greatly admire him and eventually love him.
  • Divine Date: With Solomon. In a way, since he started human and was his soul what became divine, while his body became kinda of a empty shell.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: A type 2. Now that Arba has give her her blessing to be Solomon's love interest, Sheba now has the difficult task to make Solomon see her as more than just a child that he must take care of.
  • Empty Eyes: They start to go away as she shows more emotion and even plays with a young manticore, something she wouldn't have ever considered during her initial appearance. They sometimes pop out from time to time, specially when facing something she doesn't agree with, like Solomon thinking Ill Ilah isn't truly a god. She also has these by the time of Al-Thamen's rebellion, but they're as the result of her exhaustion, sadness and uncertainty.
  • Everyone Can See It: Everyone (save Ithnan), could easily see how Sheba held a Precocious Crush towards Solomon for the past 5 years and is jealous of Arba's relationship with him.
  • Expressive Hair: Her little hair horns droop and perk up depending on her mood.
  • Fantastic Racism: She hates all the non-human species who lived in Alma Torran. And anyone who sympathizes with them or does not agree with her is "impure". When playing with a young manticore, however, she begins to show traces of changing her stance towards the non-human species. Later on, she realized and admitted to herself that the only reason she hated them was because she was afraid of them.
  • Flower in Her Hair: After a young manticore gives her a giant flower as an apology for almost attacking her in their first meeting, and wants her to wear it in her hair. Amusingly, the flower is too heavy for her, but the manticore was happy with her trying to do it anyway.
  • Freudian Excuse: The main reason behind her Fantastic Racism seems to be mostly due to the fact that it was indoctrinated in her at an early age by her church, and so this made her fear and enslave them in compensation. She shows immense confusion when the manticore tribe weren't behaving as she was taught they would.
  • The Fundamentalist: Played with. She considers that the duty of humankind given by Ill Ilah was enslaving the non-human species in retribution of the past of being devoured, because it was written in the "Holy Scriptures". But in reality, it was that Ill Ilah wanted humans to be the ones who united the world. She later grows out of it.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Despite having had a good close relationship with Arba in the past, her jealousy over Arba's closeness to Solomon has made her see Arba as only a rival. Interestingly Sheba is aware of this trope being in play and becomes frustrated since she still loves Arba but her jealousy is clouding her judgement.
  • The Heart: When Arba tries to convince her to become Solomon's conscience, she declines instead opting to become a support pillar for all her friends, Arba included.
  • Heartbroken Badass: After Solomon's apotheosis, all she was left with to live was fulfilling his dream of an utopia.
  • Heartwarming Orphan: She was apparently abandoned by her parents at the step of the church she was then raised in, when she was born. Though she isn't heartwarming at first, she sure grows up to be.
  • Heel Realization: She becomes very ashamed of herself, when Ugo reminds her that the manticores were mindless beasts only because of her magic; and then finding out that it led directly to Momo's father's death.
  • Her Heart Will Go On: The Solomon she fell in love with has become the White Rukh, and all that Sheba got left of him was his empty shell of a body that can't recognize her anymore. Still, faithful to his conviction and concious of his sacrifice, she endures her grief to try to make some order between the magicians in order to make his dream of an equal world come true.
  • Hero of Another Story: Sheba becomes the Protagonist during the Alma Torran flashback arc.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Became one to Solomon.
  • The High Queen: Became Solomon's consort. And actually she was the one that pretty much ruled over the magicians, since Solomon was uncapable of doing so because of being a shell of his former self.
  • Hopeless Suitor: She knows and recognises that she will never be as close and precious to Solomon as Arba is, and that he will probably always think of her as only a child he must take care of. Eventually subverted.
  • Horned Hairdo: Two cute little horns.
  • I Am a Monster: After realizing the full extent of the suffering that she had been causing by powering the Mind-altering towers, she asks why Solomon and co. would let such a horrible person live.
  • Imaginary Love Triangle: Her jealousy towards Arba makes her see the other woman as her ultimate rival, but in reality the relationship between Solomon and Arba is familial.
  • Insistent Terminology: She insists that others refer to Ill Ilah as "Father". She grow out of it alongside her fanatism.
  • Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: Her bolg, which can grow eight dragon heads for greater offensive power.
  • Longest Pregnancy Ever: She halted the growth of the fetus in her womb in order to join the upcoming fight, and for the baby be born in a better world. But because of the magicians' increasing bitterness, Alma Toran still was not perfect in her eyes so when she entrusted Aladdin to Ugo, the fetus was still around one month of gestation, despite Al-Tharmen's rebellion taking places years after the announcement of her pregnancy.
  • Love Hurts: Her feelings for Solomon go beyond mere admiration. Unfortunately, he only treats her as a kid and she's no match for Solomon's bond with Arba, which is a source of great frustration and sadness for her. He does eventually come to reciprocate her feelings and they become a couple, only to have her heart broken when Solomon's soul becomes the White Rukh.
  • Missing Mom: She ends up dying before meeting her son, Aladdin.
  • Naked on Arrival
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Named after the Queen of Sheba, a figure appearing in The Bible, The Qur'an, and various histories, who visits King Solomon, and, depending on the account, has an affair with him.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Even after she lost Solomon, Sheba decided to take his place as the one who would unite the world and create the utopia Solomon always dreamt of. She overworked herself to allow the other species to establish their cities and tried to mantain the now corrupted magicians under control, believing they would eventually understand and move forward. Unfortunately, the magicians saw it as Sheba forgetting about them and "falling under Solomon's control" and rebelled against her.
  • Parental Abandonment: She never knew her parents.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: Begs Solomon to not leave her after he becomes the White Rukh itself.
    You don't have to become God...Just stay by my side...
  • Plucky Girl: No matter how bad things are getting for her or the others, this girl will believe that there's always a solution and give her all in order to achieve it.

  • Post-Kiss Catatonia: She literally starts to melt after Solomon gives her a kiss on the forehead.
  • Post-Stress Overeating: Starts to devour the whole table after eavesdropping on Solomon and Arba's bonding moment.
  • Powered by a Forsaken Child: She alone powered a tower that mind-controlled any species that wasn't human, prior to the creation of Alma Torran. When La Résistance whisked her away, she was getting close to death.
  • Precocious Crush: Solomon is 5 years older than her and they first met when she was only 12 years old. Solomon decided to try to be a father figure for Sheba, but after a few years, she starts seeing him as something more. He doesn't take her feelings seriously at first, but he eventually acknowledges her and they enter in a serious relationship.
  • Pregnant Badass: She eventually becomes pregnant with Solomon's child, but that doesn't stop her from being ready to fight the final battles to end the war in Alma Torran. She was still carrying her baby Aladdin while fighting Arba when Al-Thamen's rebellion started.
  • Red Herring: Her staff makes you suspect Sheba might turn out to be Gyokuen, but it's eventually revealed that Arba is Gyokuen. She stole Sheba's staff after killing Sheba. The Empty Eyes she's seen with in the beginning of the Alma Torran flashback also makes you think she has a grudge against Solomon, but they're actually as the result of exhaustion and sadness.
  • Relationship Upgrade: After all her failing attempts at courtship, it was her undying faith in Solomon and in his truly altruistic cause what made Solomon start seeing her as a love interest.
  • Rescue Introduction: Her first scene is being saved by Solomon and his group when she was about to die due of magic exhaustion. At first it was unwanted, though.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Her hair is pink and after her Heel Realization, she becomes more adorable and the 'child' of La Résistance. Bonus points for having a blue-haired love interest.
  • Savvy Guy, Energetic Girl: With Solomon.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Goes from 12 to 17 during the timeskip. It takes Solomon a while, but once she defends him from unfair accusations relating his father, Solomon finally realizes Sheba is not a child anymore and starts to see her as a woman and potential love interest.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: She fell in love with Solomon, the man who saved her and inspired her to create an equal world for every single being in Alma Torran.
  • Sorry That I'm Dying: Sheba died with only one regret: never being able to hug her son once, and she apologizes to him for it while she was dying.
  • The Spock: As Queen Sheba, she was the only who believed in Solomon's actions and tried to enforce peace to honor his sacrifice, to the point of overworking herself. This led to a huge conflict with Arba, who refused to accept Solomon took Ill Ilah's place.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Solomon.
  • Tagalong Kid: Of La Résistance after they save her. After growing up and becoming its third strongest magician, the title passed to Tess.

  • Token Mini-Moe: When she's introduced, she's the youngest member of La Résistance. After the Time Skip, she has grown into a teenager.
  • Took a Level in Idealism: She at first believed humans couldn't coexist with the other species of Alma Torran and humans had to enslave them in order to survive and punish them. After Solomon saved her and she befriended a young manticore, she came to adopt Solomon's ideals and wish for an equal world.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Goes from cold and unsentimental fanatic to idealist and sweet cutie.
  • Tragic Heroine: Lost the man she loved, her closest friends betrayed her, the woman she saw as a mother/sister figure killed her and she never even got the chance to meet her own child.
  • Tsundere: She starts to earnestly proclaim that she'll became stronger in order to be a woman suitable for Solomon, to then just deny that she has any interest in him.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Solomon. In the end, she was the only one who never doubted his decisions and faithfully followed his will to the end.
  • Unknown Rival: She saw Arba as her rival for Solomon's affections, but Arba never felt that way about Solomon and was the one who asked Sheba to marry him so that she could help him be happy.
  • Unwanted Rescue: Despite being on the verge of death, she resents that Solomon's team whisked her away from the tower. She was there then at the time because she wanted to be, and since she considered it her sacred duty.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Solomon fears she is becoming this, when she shows the same fanatical devotion to The Resistance's cause that she showed to that of the Magician Orthodox. She also has a problem with trying to do everything herself.
  • Why Can't I Hate You?: She becomes very angry at herself following the timeskip, because despite loving Arba as a sister/mother figure, she's still very jealous of her and Solomon's relationship.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: After Solomon's crusade makes her see that a unified world, where everyone could be equals, was possible. Played for Drama after she lost Solomon and all that she had left to live was archieving peace on his behave.

  • The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask: As Queen Sheba, she gave her best to make Alma Torran the peaceful, equal world Solomon always dreamt of. She gave up her cheerful personality and struggled to help the other species establish their cities and maintain control over the magicians to the point of exhausting herself. In the end, she failed and was killed as part of the rebellion.
  • You Are Not Alone: When she understands that Solomon's determination in freeing the non-human species comes from believing himself as responsible for his father's actions, as his son. She then reminds him that he doesn't have to do it alone, and that he has his True Companions with him. He thanks her for that.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her hair is pink.

  • Action Dad: After becoming a father to Tess, Wahid doesn't hesitate to put himself on the front lines.
  • Ax-Crazy
  • Battle Couple: He and Falan are a married pair of battle mages.
  • Beta Couple: With Falan to Solomon and Sheba. They are a bit dysfunctional than most examples, but they get married and have a son before Solomon even acknowledges Sheba as his love interest.
  • Big Eater: Loves to eat and Setta complains that he gets fat very easily. Luckily, he has Arba to train out all his fat.
  • Blindfolded Vision: After the five years time skip he appears to have lost both eyes, as he has them covered, yet he seems to be able to see anyway.
  • Blood Knight: Wahid loves to fight the Orthodox.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: He's always groping Falan, but it's made clear he really loves her and he dies protecting her at the end.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: His son's death.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He may have turned to the dark side, but Wahid dies saving Falan in the final battle of Alma Torran, admitting that while he no longer knows what justice is, he knows he loves his wife.
  • Eyepatch of Power
  • Face–Heel Turn: Was amongst the ones who eventually betrayed Solomon, and joined Arba in her rebellion.
  • Fallen Hero: Once one of Solomon's closest allies. He later betrayed Solomon and joined Arba in her rebellion, determined to defy Solomon's Will and destroy the world.
  • Freudian Excuse: The death of his son.
  • Go Out with a Smile: The last thing Wahid says is he can finally search for his beloved son again.
  • Happily Married: To Falan. They marry and have a child together over the timeskip. They still bicker a lot, but clearly love each other.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Trains his body alongside Arba.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: He and Falan have just being married for 7 years, but already bicker a lot. Justified since they have known each other for a long time already.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: He loves to grope Falan's breasts. For some reason she doesn't mind, and just lets him do it. He keeps doing it even after they get married.
  • The Masochism Tango: With Falan.
  • Oblivious to His Own Description: Falan complains that now that she and Wahid have a baby together, she now has two men all over her breasts. Wahid immediately asks her who is this pervert who has been groping his wife.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: His only child is left trapped behind at their home base, and massacred by the enemy in a sneak attack.

  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Setta's blue.
  • Stout Strength: Chubby but strong.
  • Taking the Bullet: He's mortally injured when protecting Falan from their enemies' attacks in the final battle. He then uses his final energy to summon Ill Ilah, claiming it's in order to see his son again.
  • Thanks for the Mammary: Wahid is occasionally seen touching both Falan's breasts.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Falan after they both join Al-Thamen.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: After becoming part of Al-Thamen.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: It's very difficult not to pity Wahid, whose initial role as a member of Al-Thamen and the Medium for Ill Ilah responsible for destroying nearly all life in Alma Torran, is precipitated by the death of his son Tess. The fact that Wahid dies saving the life of the woman he loves, believing there's a chance he can see his son again is utterly heartrending.

Falan

Voiced by: Yuu Kobayashi (Japanese), Tamara Ryan (English)

  • Absolute Cleavage
  • Action Girl
  • Action Mom: Even after she marries Wahid and gives birth to Tess, she's still an active member of La Résistance and she puts herself on the front lines in the battle against David.
  • An Ice Person: Was seen using ice magic in Adventure of Sinband, specifically, Valefor's dungeon.
  • Anime Hair: Especially the loop around her Third Eye, which just seems to have grown that way.
  • Battle Couple: With Wahid.
  • Beta Couple: She and Wahid to Solomon and Sheba.
  • Big Eater: Because Setta likes to cook healthy and low-calories food, Falan complains that she's never full.
  • Blow You Away: Uses wind magic.
  • Boobs of Steel: An Action Girl magician with a large chest.
  • Break the Cutie: Having your young child die in your arms while you're unable to do anything about it sure is a great way to break anyone...
  • Broken Bird: By the time of her appearance in Adventure of Sinbad, it's clear the events in Alma Torran, especially her son's and husband's deaths, have made her bitter and twisted. After Wahid's death, Falan has nothing left.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Although first introduced in the Magi main series within a flashback; she actually appears earlier on chronologically in Adventure of Sinbad, as a Magician Counselor for the Parthevia Empire, (actually having infiltrated it as a part of Al-Thamen), and accompanies Drakon and Jafar during their exploration of Valefor's dungeon, to capture its Djinn and Sinbad.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Her son's death... And her husband's sacrificing his life to save her didn't help much either.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Tess' death breaks her. When Wahid dies to save her, she's so broken that all she can do is bitterly snarl that even Wahid is leaving her.
  • Evil Redhead: After becoming part of Al-Thamen.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Was amongst the ones who eventually betrayed Solomon, and is a part of Al-Thamen as of Adventure of Sinbad.
  • Fallen Hero: She used to be one of Solomon's closest allies, but the death of her son changed her and now she works for Al-Thamen, determined to defy Solomon's Will and destroy the world.
  • Freudian Excuse: Losing her only child made her fall in depravity and made her join Al-Thamen.
  • Happily Married: To Wahid. They married and had a child together over the timeskip. Although they bicker a lot, they clearly love each other and really happy together. Tragically, Falan loses both him and her son and that's her Start of Darkness.
  • How Dare You Die on Me!: When Wahid sacrifices his life in order to protect her, Falan reproaches he's going to leave her behind just like Tess did.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: She and Wahid have just being married for 7 years, but already bicker a lot. Justified since they have known each other for a long time already; she even says that recalling his flaws was her way to praise him.
  • The Masochism Tango: With Wahid. She even threatened him with "making him never touch her breasts anymore".
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Her only child is left trapped behind at their home base, and massacred by the enemy in a sneak attack.
  • Posthumous Character
  • Shipper on Deck: Tells Sheba to hurry up and have Solomon's baby.
  • Treacherous Advisor: To Barbarrossa. Naturally, as a member of Al Thamen.

    The Orthodox Church 

David Jehoahaz Abraham

The leader of the Magicians from Alma Torran, and the first Senator in the Orthodox's "Council of Elders". He is Solomon's father.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/david_manga_profile.png
Destiny Itself

  • Actually a Doombot: Pulls this in two different ways: first of all during the Alma Toran flashback when he uses the "dolls" Al Thamen would later use to trick the Resistance, and later in the Sacred Palace while having two bodies (his "thoughts" real form inside the Great Rift" and the black rukh form that came from Sinbad in the Palace.)
  • All for Nothing: His desire to follow destiny to the end ends up leaving the world exactly as it was when he was a child. The only difference being that now humans are attempting to negotiate with the Upper Gods.
  • And Then What??: While he does become a God (on the level of Il Ilah and from another universe, with Ugo above him) he starts pondering this. It makes him decide to follow Sinbad instead, as his Magi.
  • Archnemesis Dad: To both Solomon and Arba.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: What he seems to successfully attempt to do after killing himself before Solomon, and which is implied to have been his main aim in life all along. In doing so, he aims to consequently "become one" with Il Ilah for eternity.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He is the 'First Senator' in the Orthodox Council of Elders, and by far the strongest of them all.
  • Because Destiny Says So: David had already understood long ago that events such as his son Solomon being born, as well as that he ultimately end up killing him would naturally occur; all as part of destiny. Thus, everything he has done and achieved up until this point was all part of the grand scheme of things. If it sounds overly complicated, you can see his own explanation here.
  • Benevolent Mage Ruler: Well, to the Magician Orthodox at least.
  • Big Bad: As the leader of the Magician Orthodox, who were the enemy of Solomon's La Résistance, back in Alma Torran. And perhaps he is this to the whole series after all. Confirmed on chapter 351, when he overrides Sinbad's control of the Sacred Palace and starts the plan of returning the world to the rukh on his own accord.
  • Big "WHAT?!"?: When Ugo catches him from behind after he became a God.
  • Black Mage: Implied to be one.
  • The Corrupter: For Sinbad. However, Sinbad ego is strong enough to resist a full atempt and David has to resort to other tactics at the end.
  • The Chosen One: Believes himself to be this. It is implied this is actually true, although by the point its confirmed it becomes clear how empty and unimportant the concept is by itself.
  • Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Setta comments on David having a case of this: whatever he believes in will turn out to be destined to happen.
  • Court Mage: Ends up becoming Sinbads official magi.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Shown in Chapter 228.
  • Decoy Getaway: During the final battle for Alma Torran, Solomon and his crew storm the Magician Orthodox cathedral, only to watch Arba then brutally take out Elder David. However... it turns out that the bodies of David and his 11 cohorts were just artificial doll substitutes, very similar to the ones that Al-Thamen use in the current world.
  • Deity of Human Origin: What he attempts to become. Eventually succeeds.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Claims he fell into despair after seeing his own inescapable destiny, and warns Solomon against doing the same thing.
  • Doing In the Wizard: Explains his seer power is not actually power but a result of studying the paths of fate.
  • Dying Declaration of Hate: Just before he kills himself, he states to his son Solomon how he never once thought of him in that way.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Thanks to being accustomed to seeing destiny so much, he barely seems unfazed by anything of what it happens. Even Ugo trashing his thousand years plan and becoming something above a god only shocks David for a while, before he smiles and offers his friendship to him.
  • Enfante Terrible: As he becomes used to Godhood, he de-ages himself until he looks around Aladdin´s age.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: As shown when Aladdin faces him in the end, he cannot understand why would Aladdin even question who choose him or why does he want to follow destiny so, instead resorting to question Aladdin if he isn't a Magi.
  • Evil Gloating: Both to annoy enemies and after dying and ending up inside Il Ilah he gloats to every other dead person, calling them the "groundwork" for his plan. This being David, perhaps he was being sincere. Given how in a moment he calls himself the "groundwork" for Sinbad and seems to be at peace, its very likely that it was sincere.
  • Eye Remember: He is able to do this, in that he can see not just past memories, but those of the future. As demonstrated here.
  • Fantastic Racism: Views all the non-human species of Alma Torran as being fundamentally inferior to humans. Perhaps. He himself claims the orthodox agenda is something useless he made to further fuel his plans.
  • The Fatalist: For David, everything is according to fate, now matter how good or bad it is. Setta outright calls him an embodiment of fate.
  • Freudian Excuse: Is not difficult to see why would David enslave the other species, given how they treated humanity in the first time.
  • Foil: To Aladdin, especially once he becomes a little kid too. He is a magi (from Sinbad in his case) who unlike him tries to overthrow his King Candidate, doesnt care about the right thing to do but instead follows his "destiny", showing no character evolution whatsoever besides some obvious admiration for Sinbad. Since Aladdin was pretty much Solomon´s proxy and this he´s all about defying horrible fates and looking for mutual understanding, David is about following whatever fate proclaims and achieving one´s own desires.
  • The Fundamentalist: He enslaved all the other species and burned to death all non believers... Altought, when asked by his son if he did it for god in private his answer implies he never believed in any of that.
  • A God Am I: He's a powerful magician that rules the Orthodox's council. He is thus practically a king; so why not go a step further, enslave all of the non-human species and become a god? Solomon recognises this about his father though, and doesn't want to become like him. Solomon believes that David actually plans to surpass Ill Ilah, killing it in the process. He succeeds. Also spoken word by word while attempting to replace Ugo as the Guardian of the Sacred Palace.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: What he is to the other Big Bads after usurping ll Ilah.
  • Hidden Villain: For a good while during the story, he is just a voice on the other side.
  • Identical Stranger: He bears a strong resemblance to Sinbad.
  • Immortal Immaturity: A creepy variation. He spent hundred of years seemingly playing with figures while fused with Ill Illah, crushing and enslaving them. Living figures, mind you.
  • In Their Own Image: Mother Dragon implies his goal is not to consume Solomons world in black rukh, but to shape it into one that fits his own desires.
  • Kick the Dog: When he goes after the non-combatants instead of facing Solomon and co.
  • Lack of Empathy: He states having no feelings, either for Solomon or Aladdin, and doesn't care for anyone who isn't himself. Or Sinbad. At the end, its clear his lack of connection with people is what made him so obsessed with his "role" in following destiny"
  • Lonely at the Top: In his prophetic writings, David confesses that because of his unique power and wisdom, that he has been isolated from anyone and everyone around him.
  • Multiarmed And Dangerous: His Guardian of The Sacred Palace form has six arms, reminiscent of Dattatreya. He is also huge.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: Named after King David from The Bible.
  • No Brows: Notable in that its his main difference with Sinbad, he completely lacks eyebrows.
  • One-Winged Angel: First, he turns into a god, complete with six arms and djinn-like skin. Then he loses the extra arms when attaining a higher hierarchy. Then he becomes a child-like magi version of himself when fully powered by the Sacred Palace. Lastly, when Aladdin is trying to get rid of his true self, the mass of black rukh that composes him becomes a strange, gigantic abomination sporting a grin and black eyes.
  • Orcus on His Throne: In Alma Torran, even after a 5 year timeskip, during by which Solomon's followers had unified 3/4 of the world under their cause; he hasn't been nearly active enough personally in stopping Solomon. Lampshaded by David's minions at one point, no less. Turns out that there's a reason for this.
  • Passing the Torch: Passes on his staff to Solomon in the hopes that he will find a way to Screw Destiny.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: At one point he deflects Falan control magic and turns it into what seems to be a nuclear blast. And this is before he became a god.
  • Posthumous Character: Or so it appears.
  • Sycophantic Servant: To Sinbad, for a while. A very short while, as he still believes in being chosen by fate.
  • Puny Humans: Believes himself to be above everyone else, and so sees them as this.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Probably the longest mane of hair in the whole series.
  • Really 700 Years Old: According to Solomon, David is over 800 years old.
  • Reminiscing About Your Victims: Takes his time to tell how he cruelly disposed of Setta.
    David': At the end, even his voice dissapeared... Well, maybe thats because he didnt have a brain anymore.
  • Reflective Eyes: A Justified example.
  • Reverse Relationship Reveal: After attaining godhood, he realizes he is content serving Sinbad as a magi, contrary to the idea that he was just manipulating him.
  • Seer: He can see the past and the future, not to mention what will happen to the characters in the current world.
  • Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: A Invoked and Exploited example by David himself. See Because Destiny Says So for why above.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: Seems to believe ths. However what exactly he considers an utopa -if it is a true world of happiness or just a world on which fate flows as he decides- is not exactly clear as for now.
  • Walking Spoiler: Since he is one of the biggest contenders for final villain of the series, along with Sinbad and Ugo.
  • Wild Card: Even after he decides to serve a king, Sinbad considers him this.
  • Windows of the Soul: Sort of. See Eye Remember above.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Was responsible for the death of Tess.
  • Would Not Shoot a Civilian: Averted; after Solomon and co. discover that David wasn't in the Magician Orthodox cathedral, it is shown that David and his cohorts are now explicitly attacking the women and children left behind at Solomon's home base.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: See Because Destiny Says So above.
  • Young Face, Old Eyes: See him here.

     Creatures Of The Rift 

Mother Dragon

An ancient dragon who resides in the rift between continents on Alma Torran.
  • Female Monster Surprise: Referred to as male by others, but never bothered to reveal her actual gender until Judar called her an old man.
  • Last of Her Kind: The last of the Origin Dragons.
  • Light Is Good: Gives off a radiant light that allows one to see even in the darkness of the Rift.
  • Ms. Exposition: Reveals intimate knowledge that most people might not know. Including being the one who set Solomon on the path of justice and that Ill Ilah is controlled by David.
  • Neutral No Longer: Spent countless ages neutral to the events happening in both worlds, but Alibaba reminds her of when she had fellow Origin Dragons and others as company.
  • Time Abyss: The longest lived being from Alma Torran without using magic or becoming a djinn. Her great age has given her a more neutral and unbiased view of the world compared to others.
  • Time Dissonance: She's older than the world itself. To her, two entire years are just a moment.

Ill Ilah

The creator of Alma Torran.
  • Abstract Apotheosis: Ill Ilah is Destiny, and its Black Rukh is against Solomon's White Rukh and Free Will.
  • Almighty Idiot: Solomon believes it may simply be a mindless lump of power that was discovered by the early humans who fabricated the whole "God chose humans to unite the world" story. The Mother Dragon confirms that Solomon was right. Until David merged with it, infusing it with his will and intelligence. Later in the story Arba insists on this not being true, and Il Ilah having his own mind. It says a lot that it chose to give magic to humans by itself, as later seen in David´s flashback.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: Its revealed later in the story that there are countless gods above Il Ilah. Ugo becomes one of them for a while, and in extension anyone inside the Sacred Palace.
  • Because Destiny Says So: The Black Rukh of Alma Torran is the result of Ill Ilah's destiny.
  • Demonic Possession: David usurps Ilah and takes control of it after his death.
  • Eldritch Abomination
  • Genius Loci: It serves as an afterlife for all those whose Rukh is absorbed by it. Alibaba ends up coming here, and he sees that it's a mostly empty place where the souls of those from Alma Toran live bored in the afterlife due to how much slower time flows.
  • God Is Evil: Ill Ilah is the name of Al-Thamen's "Father." And considering that its "destiny" is humanity suffering to then sooner or later being sucked dry of their lives. It is averted later in the story. Al Thamen actions are a result of Arba´s zealousy, if anything. Il Ilah is just... there.
  • God Is Good: Gave humans the ability to use magic so they wouldn't be the prey for all the other species.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: The members of Al-Thamen worship him and want to let him destroy the world but Ill Ilah has shown no sentience of his own so he's more like a force of nature than an actual character. Ultimately subverted in that it's David and not Ill Ilah who has caused many of the events of the series.
  • Top God: Let's just say he isn't exactly at the top of the food chain.

     Other Alma Torran Residents 

Momo

A young manticore who befriends Sheba.


Tess

Wahid and Falan's son. At first he is just a baby, but we later see him grow older.


  • Anger Born of Worry: He tells this parents "to die" after they refuse to go hide with him instead of going to fight against David.
  • Oedipus Complex: He says he wants to marry his mother and he doesn't get along well with his father.
  • Parting Words Regret: He deeply regrets telling his parents to die when they go to the final battle. And that was his last conversation with them before he died.
  • Posthumous Character: He was left trapped behind at the home base, and massacred by the enemy in a sneak attack.

    Djinn 
Staying in a dungeon until that particular dungeon is captured, they bestow their great power toward their capturer. Usually have elemental powers of some sort.

Tropes associated with them:

Ugo / Uraltugo Noi Nueph

Aladdin's djinn, stored in a flute, and his first friend. He is currently in the "Room of Fortitude", the place from where Aladdin came to this world.

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese), Patrick Seitz (English)

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Light blue hair in the manga, black hair in the anime.
  • Accidental Discovery: He was the first human to discover the existence of Rukh in Alma Torran—which back then, intriguingly, was black.
  • Affectionate Nickname: His real first name is Uraltugo, but everyone calls him just "Ugo".
  • A God Am I: "I Am The Almighty God", said to Arba.
  • Allergic to Love: So shy around women, that he will faint when even one barely touches him.
  • The Aloner: Time in the Sacred Place doesnt flow, and as such he has spent around several (and we mean several) thousands of millions of year in there. By the point Sinbad and Arba try to break in, he crushes the former but captures the later in hopes of having some company and a new friend.
  • All Up to You: With Solomon and Sheba dead and Arba trapped in another dimension, it's all up to Ugo, the only Magi left, to try to keep the survivors alive and united, take care of Aladdin and also found a way to create the world anew.
  • The Archmage: Widely believed to be one of the smartest magicians in the series as no one yet can replicate his feats. Solomon of all people considered Ugo to be the strongest Magician of Alma Toran, not himself as many people believed. After he became Guardian of the Sacred Palace it was clear he became much stronger than he ever was and as of chapter 324 it looks like Solomon may have been proven right in every sense, as he is no longer limited to just being an elite genius magician, but is now a 6.5 to potentially above 7 on the Super Weight Scale, having discovered how to change ranks in the hierarchy and place himself above Ill Ilah, a God able to create a full-fledged Universe.
    • But there is one problem: Sinbad was able to exploit this same system and use it against him to take control of the Sacred Palace.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He was the most prodigious magic theorist since the creation of the Magician Orthodox.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Ugh, damn, that Judar is too strong, how could—HOLY CRAP did he just bust Judar's Bolg using raw physical power?!
    • He effortlessly defeats Sinbad when he tries to infiltrate the sacred palace. And when David emerges from his charred remains? Ugo captures him just as effortlessly.
  • Bishōnen
  • Blinding Bangs
  • Break the Cutie: He watched his friends kill each other and cause the death of most of the inhabitants of Alma Torran and has spent thousands of millions of years alone in the Sacred Palace. It's a wonder how he was able to maintain his moral compass and faith in Solomon after all that time, but it's clear that Ugo's not as sane as he used to be.
  • But Now I Must Go: Saving Aladdin from Judar uses all the stored Magoi within him, but not before he takes Aladdin to Solomon's Holy Palace.
  • Creepy Good: Quickly moves to be this after the extent of his sanity slippage is revealed.
  • Deity of Human Origin: Becomes this thanks to using the Sacred Palace to put himself above God.
  • Fundoshi: Only wears this as a djinn.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He crafted by himself very complicated and huge magical tools while working with La Résistance.
  • The Glasses Come Off: He stopped wearing his glasses after becoming a Magi. Whenever he was feeling over depressed or stressed, Ugo returned to wear his scarf and glasses.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation: After what felt like an eternity in the Sacred Palace without anyone to keep him company, his mind's begun to slip. It's gotten to the point where someone can whip up an illusion of Solomon and tell him to step down as God and he'll one hundred percent believe that it's real.
  • Grew a Spine: From being a neutral, mostly scared supporter to being the main pillar of Solomon's new world order.
  • Heroic BSoD: After realizing the concept of fate, like every other magician first. And after Solomon dies and the world is destroyed too, until he decides to stop whining and starts going.
  • Hollywood Nerd: The boy is geeky there's no denying, but he's also ripped to the high heavens and has a very handsome face.
  • Imagination-Based Superpower: Solomon believes him to be the real strongest magician in all Alma Torran because he has the intelligence and imagination to create. Sheer power is useless, according to Solomon, because it can only destroy, but Ugo's mind can conceive ideas that can revolutionise the world. Chapters 236 & 237 reveal that he is the one who created the current universe.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Aladdin and Solomon.
  • It's All My Fault: Blames himself for the destruction of the resistance's base and all the civilians' deaths; since if he had released David's defensive wall faster, then they could have arrived in time to save them.
  • The Kirk: As one of Solomon's Magi, Ugo found himself trapped between his loyalty to Solomon and his fears for the changes which Solomon made, in contrast to the faithful Queen Sheba and the fanatic traitor Arba.
  • Losing Your Head: Aladdin's quest is to find it, at first.
  • Lovable Nerd
  • Married to the Job: He takes his role as the inventor of Solomon's crew back in Alma Torran very seriously, to the point that he's never even had a girlfriend by his fifties.
  • Megane: When young in Alma Torran.
  • Nerds Are Virgins: His companions in Alma Toran called him a nerd and he probably is a virgin even after spending a near eternity in the Sacred Palace.
  • Nice Guy: In general. He is even polite to enemies.
  • Not Brainwashed: Ends up supporting Sinbad after he takes control of the Sacred Palace, believing that his goal to return things to the Rukh was the best means to oppose the destiny of the gods on the higher layers. This is after David's magic had severely messed with his mind, but his intellect allows him to make logical decisions even if his emotional half tends to go wild.
  • Older Than He Looks: He's supposed to be in his fifties during the flashback of his days as a member of La Résistance, but he doesn't look anywhere near that old.
  • Old Maid: A rare male example. When people say that it's time he founds himself a woman, he says he's fine of not having his youth as long he has his magic research. Ithnan has said that a girl just for Ugo doesn't exist, since it's impossible to be as nerdy as him.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: For everyone in the new world, he is just Ugo.
  • Otaku: A complete geek when it comes to magic tools.
  • Overly Long Name: His full name.
  • Papa Wolf: To Aladdin.
  • Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality: In one of Aladdin's memories; when he shows him an illustrated book about sex, Ugo faints with a rain of nosebleed.
  • Parental Substitute: He was the closest thing Aladdin ever had to a family before he came to Magi's world, and it's hinted that Ugo more or less raised him. Aladdin's mother Sheba asked him to look after her child right before she died.
  • Playing with Fire: When he uses magic, he uses heat magic.
  • The Reveal: Ugo actually is King Solomon's Djinn; his head wasn't missing, just stuck in the "Room of Fortitude"; as he's unable to leave it and was teaching Aladdin to use magic all along. He wasn't just a Djinn, he was a genius magician and one of Solomon's closest friends, and later on became one of his three Magi.
  • Sanity Slippage: For spending too much time on the Sacred Palace, though he still retains his moral compass and his sense of duty to Solomon perfectly.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: Wore one when he was part of La Résistance back in Alma Torran.
  • Shrinking Violet: Very shy with women.
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl: Rare Male Example.
  • The Smart Guy: Of La Résistance, when back in Alma Torran.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: When he was in Alma Torran.
  • Super Strength: Enough to break a Magi Bolg with his own hands.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Ugo or Uugo?
  • Top God: Became this using the Sacred Palace in order to avoid being replaced by David's plot. He keeps Il Ilah on a fish tank of all things.
  • We Used to Be Friends: He was good friends with Ithnan, Wahid, Falan and Arba before their fall into depravity and betrayal.
  • When All You Have Is a Hammer...: While he probably could create the most complex spells with his knowledge, he tends to fight like this. He is so strong that he just needs to crush his opponents like bugs.
  • World's Strongest Man: Solomon considered him this, and after he obtains the Sacred Palace power he definitively is, trashing Sinbad, David and Arba in succession. However he is far from sane mentally.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is a light shade of blue.

Amon

A fire Djinn, unintentionally captured by Alibaba. He is known as the "Djinn of Stern and Dignified Spirits of Etiquette."

Voiced by: Hidekatsu Shibata (JP), R. Martin Klein (EN)

Paimon

Hakuei's Djinn, the Djinn of Maniacal Love and Chaos, and a Djinn of fertility. Because of this, she is capable of creating a large household of over 100 people.

Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara (Japanese), Karen Strassman (English)

  • Blow You Away: Her Djinn equip gives the user the power of wind.
  • Buxom Is Better: She has a pretty big rack, and since she doesn't wear anything but nipple rings on her chest, you can be sure that there's no padding.
  • Femme Fatalons: Though all Djinn have long fingernails.
  • The Gadfly: Really likes messing with people.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: She seems very feminine and she has only shown interest in women. She says she has fallen for Hakuei, and in Alma Torran, she proposed to her fellow female Djinn Leraje to forget about Focalor and fall in love with her instead. Makes sense since apparently, her species is an One-Gender Race of females.
  • Mother of a Thousand Young: She's able to create a large household of over 100 familiars, as a Djinn of fertility.
  • Pointy Ears: Really long pointy ears at that.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: She wears nothing to cover her breasts. She's the reason certain episodes on Hulu have a mature content warning.
  • The Tease: As the Djinn of Maniacal Love. Her favourite "victim" seems to be Ugo.

Vinea

Voiced by: Hiroki Touchi

Focalor

Djinn of Rule and Submission, he's one of Sinbad's 7 Djinn.


Zepar

A Djinn of Sound, he's one of Sinbad's 7 Djinn.


  • Compelling Voice: So far only seen capable of putting people to sleep.
    • Later on, we see Kougyoku hearing Zepar's voice inside her head when Sinbad looks her way.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout
  • Mind Control: His power allows Sinbad to take control of people's minds. Kougyoku being one of them.
  • Sleep-Mode Size: An inversion. Because Zepar has the appearance of a child, equipping him makes Sinbad into a cute faun-like creature.

Leraje

Kouha's Djinn. She's a Djinn that uses Strength/Power magic.

Voiced by: Miki Nagasawa

  • Anime Hair: Her hair is made of crystals.
  • BFS
  • Femme Fatalons
  • The First Cut Is the Deepest: Her problem with womanizing men comes from the fact that back in Alma Torran, her crush Focalor was a ladykiller.
  • Girlish Pigtails
  • Pointy Ears
  • Settle for Sibling: Shows more interest in Kouen because he's sexy, but had to select Kouha since Kouen already has three Djinns and she's not a second-table's plate.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Like Paimon, she doesn't wear anything above her waist.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Up to Eleven when you realize her pipe is a scythe.
  • True Companions: She doesn't want a single king to rule, but longs for a world built for the combined forces of a king and his strong retainers.
  • Woman Scorned: She calls Kouen a "cheater" because he already has three Djinn and reminds herself she swore to never fall in love with playboys like him. When chanting his Extreme Magic, Kouha says that his enemies will "disappear under the queen's crushing grief."
    Kouha: "You look like someone who was just ditched by her man."
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Kouha was ready to be a household vessel user but she saw he was better than that just by seeing his army's eyes full of Undying Loyalty. She recognized nobody would choose Kouha as king, but if he could earn the loyalty of his army, he was worthy of her power.
  • Your Make Up Is Running: After noticing how Kouen already has three Djinn and recalling she hates playboys, she starts crying because she still founds him attractive.
    Kouha: "What's that? You pervy Djinn. Your make-up looks shitty."
