The Reim Empire

The Reim Empire, fashioned after the Roman Empire, is the world's largest nation protected by the Great Priestess Scheherazade. The empire is the most powerful and longest leading superpower in terms of military, technology, and economy in the world. Reim's most important cities are Remano, the seat of power and capital city, and Napolia, the empire's largest financial and world economic and trading center.

  • Badass Army: The Reim army is described as being one of the most capable in the world, with them not only having access to powerful Djinn users, but also having black powder.
    • Of particular note is the Fanalis Corps, which (as the name indicates) consists entirely of Fanalis, who can level entire regiments on their own.
  • The Empire: They are described as the most powerful state in the world, and are feared by many of the other nations, save for perhaps Kou.
    • However, it's later indicated that though it calls itself "Empire", it's functionally a republic, with the Senate having most of the authority, and the position of Emperor being a ceremonial, elective position.
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: Of the Roman Empire, particularly during the Pax Romana. Interestingly, their name bares a resemblance to that of Remus, the brother of Romulus (who Rome is named for).
  • Gladiator Games: Reim makes active use of this, with Alibaba trying to join up with the games (without fully realizing what they entail).
    • Later on, though, the institution is abolished, and the Reim arena is repurposed to hold less dangerous forms of entertainment.
  • Magic Versus Science: In contrast to empires like Kou, the Reim invest their efforts less in spamming powerful magic, and more in scientific advancement, becoming the first country to harness black powder, which they use to great effect against Magnostadt. However, that's not to say they don't have access to magic, which they do, and can use if the situation calls for it.


The Magi of the Reim Empire. She is responsible for its continued prosperity, and is well over 200-years-old.

Voiced by: Maaya Sakamoto (Japanese), Stephanie Sheh (English)

  • Barrier Maiden: Protected her whole naval army and a large part of Magnostadt from the black Djinns with her bolg. Unfortunately, she was defeated by the Medium.
  • Beauty Mark: She has a mole under her left eye.
  • Braids of Action: Like the other three Magi.
  • Clone Degeneration: All her clones have a youthful appearance, but die after more or less 10 years after their "birth".
  • Costume Porn: Has leaves and berries in her hair in an arrangement in the style of the Romans.
  • Court Mage: The High Priestess of the Reim Empire.
  • Cry Cute: When she has to inform Titus that, despite her wish for him to have a long life, he too will die when she does, since he is a clone made from her Rukh.
  • Dramatic Ellipsis: Always speaks... this... way...except when giving orders to the army.
  • Ethereal White Dress: She's a Magi who has lived for over 200 years. To let everyone know she's magical, her attire consists of a long white robe that looks similar to a stola.
  • Expendable Clone: She's implied to kill off her clones when they get too old to keep up the appearance of eternal youth. Subverted since it's later revealed to be a case of Clone Degeneration.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Subverted since once in a while she open them when she wants to put emphasis on something or things start going horrible wrong.
  • Friend to Bugs: Word of God revealed that she likes bugs.
  • Good Is Not Soft: She is a benevolent ruler towards Reim, with a naturally kind disposition to those that she meets, but she still bears the responsibility of ruling a country, which requires a fair bit of ruthlessness. She will take any chance she gets to expand her empire, regardless of how ruthless the methods. She'll send spies to look for other countries' weaknesses in peacetime, and create clones of herself to keep an iron-fisted grip on control of Reim.
  • The Good Queen: Played with slightly, in that while she's not the literal ruler of Reim, she does exercise great authority and influence over matters of state, and deeply cares about all of Reim's citizens.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She really is a good person, even if she is a bit heavy handed and doesn't have a lot of patience.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Her current clone releases all the Magoi in her body to give it to the exhausted Alibaba and Kou royals.
    • She pulls another one in the Sacred Palace after her death. As the moment of her reincarnation approaches, Uugo asks her if she's sure she wants Titus to return in her place, and she tells him she is. Titus is then resurrected as the new Magi of Reim.
  • Hero of Another Story: Apparently, she had a similar relationship and adventures with the first king of Reim, to what Aladdin and Alibaba have now.
  • Humans Are Special: She knows that humans, with hard work and faith in themselves, can do incredible things; they make mistakes and stray from the right path sometimes, but if they're brave enough they can learn from their mistakes and can continue living. That's why, even though she's a Magi, she never uses her magic in Reim's wars, instead just supporting, motivating and having faith in her people, since she knows that Reim must stand on its own feet. However, in her talk with Aladdin and Titus, she realizes her errors and that she shouldn't have turned a blind eye to the Empire's more dubious actions such as slavery, regardless of her own desire for Reim to stand on its own.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: After how long she's been around, she's very stern and cool-headed. Though given what we see in flashbacks of her youth it's obvious that she started with Innocent Blue Eyes.
  • Iron Lady: She's stoic and cool-headed, and ready to do anything in order to the protect the Reim Empire.
  • Lady and Knight: The Lady to Muu's Knight.
  • Like a Son to Me: Even though she didn't give birth to him, she considers Titus to be her son. And it saddens her at not being able to prolong his lifespan.
  • Magic Staff: An ornate, crescent moon staff taller than she is.
  • Mama Bear:
    • She views all of Reim as her protectorate, thinking of it as her own child. And she will protect the Reim Empire, at all costs.
    • She's furious when she realized that Al-Thamen's father turned Titus' sacrifice into a food source for itself.
  • Meaningful Name: The character Scheherazade from "1001 nights" prolonged her death by execution by telling her king a (unconcluded) story every night. This Scheherazade prolongs her imminent demise by clones of herself that need to be replaced every decade.
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: Her love for Reim turned her delusional, seeing the country as her only priority. She forsook the whole world and turned a blind eye to its innocent foreign slaves.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: By forcing Magnostadt to try to fight against the Kou Empire, Magnostadt wages war on Reim instead.
    • Her apparently disregard for her clone's (Titus) new-found love for life and demanding Titus' return to her causes Titus to rebel by siding with Magnostadt, and also earning the ire of the school's founder and country's leader Mogamett, who protects all his students (Titus included), with extraordinary zeal.
  • Not So Stoic: She lost her cool after seeing Mogamett's mechas kill many of Reim's soldiers with a energy blast.
  • Overprotective Mom: In an extra, Titus tells her that Aladdin promised to take him and Sphintus to a brothel. She ends up shouting at Aladdin to not take Titus to those "strange places".
  • The Paragon: Her philosophy regarding normal humans is that they should learn to support themselves and one another instead of relying on magic, which directly contrasts with that of Mogamett.
  • Pet the Dog: She does care for Titus in her own way.
    • The reason why she does not want Reim to rely on magic or metal vessels, is because she wants them to be able to stand on their own.
    • She ended the war between Reim and Magnostadt after a chat with Aladdin, and allowed Titus to spend his last month of life with his friends.
  • Psychic Link: With Titus, which allows her to take control of his body for a short time.
  • Purely Aesthetic Gender: A special chapter has her say that Magi don't really consider themselves to be male or female. She is rather shocked when Titus tells her about Aladdin's love of women.
  • Rapunzel Hair: It drags out on the ground, though she herself is not very tall.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She has been supporting the Reim Empire for over 200 years, but still has the appearance of a young girl. It later turns out that her body is actually a clone like Titus, and that her real body is so ancient that it can no longer move on its own.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only female Magi of this era.
  • The Stoic: The solemn expression in her face rarely changes.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She's not as coldhearted as she seems and she really does care about Titus like he was her son, but she's really bad at expressing how she really feels.
  • Supporting Leader: Leads Reim's army from far away, but nothing else beyond that, as she doesn't want them to always rely on her but rather use their own strength.
  • Technical Pacifist
  • Token Mini-Moe
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist
  • When She Smiles: It's a sight to behold!
  • White Mage: She doesn't seem to have very much offensive magic, but her bolg is second to none.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: The real Scheherazade will die in a month at best, meaning all her clones will die alongside with her as they were made out of her Rukh.
  • You Remind Me of X: Aladdin and Alibaba remind her of herself, and her first king from long ago.
