New Ostia

    Kurt Gödel

Governor-general of New Ostia. He introduced himself to Negi by taunting him and starting a fight in the streets. He apparently knows a lot about Negi's parents, as well as info concerning what happened during the war, including some things that even Jack Rakan admits to not knowing.

  • The Ace: He was described as 'good at everything' during his time with Ala Rubra.
  • Age-Gap Romance: If what the epilogue suggests is to be believed, Gödel eventually married Hakase and he's likely to be at least twice her age.
  • Ambiguously Evil: He seems like a typical bad guy for a while, but it's later revealed his plans make him more of a Well-Intentioned Extremist. It's still hard to pin down at times whether he's a good person who is making himself out to be evil for benevolent goals or just a dick who honestly believes his extremist ways are the only ones that can save the world.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: A Senator, who fought alongside Ala Rubra and is exceptionally powerful and skilled.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He taught himself Shinmeiryuu swordsmanship through mere observation before finally convincing Eishun to take him as an apprentice.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He's always wearing a snazzy business suit.
  • Clear Their Name: Even though Arika's life was saved by Nagi, Gödel as still unsatisfied about her name and honor not being restored.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: After being beaten by Negi and then being beaten up again by Takamichi, he appears to accept his loss and starts backing Negi and Ala Alba.
  • Evil Chancellor: Subverted. He certainly acts villainous at first, but he's actually just a dickish Well-Intentioned Extremist. His claims that he was responsible for the destruction of Negi's village are actually just a ruse to get Negi to view the Senate as an enemy and make him more pliable.
  • Fantastic Racism: Subverted. At first, it appears that he only cares about the 67 million humans in Megalomesembria, but it actually turns out he was just being ruthlessly practical. The rest of the Magic World population are literally made of the same magic that composes that Magic World. When the Magic World disappears, so they will. He knew of no way to save anyone besides them.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Turns out to be a Subverted Trope later on - Gödel's just incredibly, pragmatically cynical.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Immediately after seeing a flashback to twenty years ago, Haruna has a feeling that Gödel was originally a good person who joined the Megalomesembria senate to stop them from doing more evil like framing and nearly executing Arika. In the process, he ended up becoming the sort of rotten politician he wanted to oppose.
  • Hopeless Suitor: He has been in love with Arika ever since he was a kid, according to Nodoka's artifact, but she fell in love with Nagi.
  • Humiliation Conga: After he fails to turn Negi to his side, just about every member of Negi's team that's present either attacks Kurt, or does something to further ruin his plans.
  • I Shall Taunt You: How he greeted Negi, and more or less every other line he ever uttered. It always works.
  • Insufferable Genius: He's identified as a genius, and is extremely smug about it.
  • Internal Reformist: He infiltrated the corrupt Megalomesembrian Senate to find out more about and stop their villainy.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He presents himself as an arrogant dick who taunts Negi whenever they meet. Later revelations confirm his heart is in the right place despite his unpleasant attitude.
  • Ki Manipulation: He's quite well-versed in Shinmeiryuu and can use techniques to bypass Negi's various shields.
  • Master Swordsman: He is an expert at Shinmeiryu swordplay, being Eishun's apprentice.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: Played with. He uses a tiny splinter of stone cutting his cheek as an excuse to "defend himself."
  • Named After Somebody Famous: He has the same name as one of the most famous logicians in history.
  • Not So Above It All: The super serious Gödel becomes rather childlike in mannerisms when he's talking with Takamichi.
  • Offscreen Romance: The finale suggest that he eventually gets married to Satomi Hakase, of all people. They never even met in the manga, though a note written on the class roster in chapter 351 suggests that Negi was planning to contact Kurt about Satomi after scouting her for his plan. He seems to have inadvertently played matchmaker.
  • Pining After Protagonist's Parent: He was in love with Queen Arika who didn't feel the same way and married Nagi. He doesn't appear to resent her son Negi over this, though.
  • Precocious Crush: As a kid, Gödel used to have a huge crush on the much older Queen Arika.
  • Silent Scapegoat: He reveals to Negi that the Megalomesembria senate was the one who sent the demon army to his hometown because they wanted to kill the son of their old enemies Nagi and Arika. This almost gets him killed by Negi. According to Nodoka's artifact, Gödel himself was not involved in the attack on Negi's village. However, Gödel says that he has no intention of running from his sins and promises, once everything is over, to let Negi beat him to death if that's what it takes to satisfy Negi's desire for revenge.
  • Smug Snake: He treats Negi and his group like insects and has enough power to be a legitimate threat to them. His downfall is underestimating the surveillance capabilities of Negi's girls and believing Negi wouldn't figure out the danger of the Magic World collapsing.
  • Subordinate Excuse: He loyally served Queen Arika in the past and it's easy to tell he had a crush on her.
  • Thanatos Gambit: He implies that whatever his plans were, it would come to fruition when Negi kills him. Unfortunately for him, Negi Out-Gambitted him by selecting his confidant (Chisame) and a mind reader (Nodoka), both of which don't like to fight, and another noncombatant (Kazumi) as the three partners Gödel let him bring.
  • Touch the Intangible: He manages to cut Negi, even though Negi is made of lightning at the moment, because he knows Shinmeiryuu swordsmanship techniques specialized in cutting spirits.
  • Understatement: 'If you're reading this, I suppose our little meeting didn't go very well' accompanied by a cheerful grin. This is after slicing up 'Asuna's' shoulder and inflicting wounds on Negi including a blow that removed his limbs, which was only temporary due to Negi being in lightning form.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: He was a good kid 20 years ago, but working in an evil senate for so long turned him into a Smug Snake and Well-Intentioned Extremist.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Takamichi. It's rather amusing to see the two super serious characters pushing each other like they're schoolkids.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He knows he can't save every living thing in the Magic World, so he instead opts to just save the humans in Megalomesembria, since they have physical, non-magic bodies and wouldn't survive when the Magic World disappears and drops them on Mars.


A leader and manager of the local fighting arena, and the one who owns Ako, Akira and Natsumi after they sell themselves into slavery in order to get medicine.

  • Battle Aura: He scares off his friends when they want to take advantage of Ako's Sex for Services attitude with this.
  • Cultured Badass: At one point, Ako and Akira burst in on him while he's reading a book of poetry by Charles Baudelaire. This doubles as a Genius Bonus.
  • Dying Smirk: After sacrificing his life for Ako, he vanishes with a bitter smile.
  • Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: He beats up Negi when he says he can't win against Rakan.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: He also was a slave, and it took him almost twenty years to get free. Since Negi and Kotarō are buying the girls's freedom in less of a month via winning the Tournament, he's jealous like hell.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: At first glance, he's just a disagreeable thug, but his interactions with Ako in particular are the best indication he's a good, morally correct person. For example, he refuses Ako's desperate offer to become a Sex Slave and tells Negi that his mom Arika was a hero he greatly admires, not the evil criminal the Megalomesembria senate made her out to be.
  • Kick the Dog: He gave quite the use to the electric collars that the slave girls wore. He promptly got his ass kicked by Negi and Mama Bear. And later, upon learning who Negi truly was, he tried to blackmail him into becoming his slave.
  • Self-Made Man: He was an Ostian refugee who was Made a Slave after the destruction of the Vespertatia Kingdom. He earned his freedom through prize fights with Vargas and "The Chief".
  • Taking the Bullet: He saves Ako's life by taking a hit of the anti-matter cannons and disappearing right in front of her.

    Mama Bear

A huge, stern, good-hearted beast woman who is in charge of the slave girls and owns a tavern. Tought but kind, she budgers the girls into working real hard, but also protects them devotedly when her old friend Tohsaka bullies them.

  • Apron Matron: She's very motherly to those in her care, and always seen in her apron. And HEAVEN HELP anyone who ever upsets her.
  • Beary Friendly: She's a good bear person.
  • Beast Man: Basically a big, slightly anthropomorphic bear lady.
  • I Was Quite a Looker: A flashback to her, Tosaka and the big guy's past shows that when she was young she was less, 'big full on furry bear woman' and more 'good looking girl who appeared mostly human but with bear's ears'.
  • Mama Bear: If you threaten her wards, she'll have NO mercy.
  • Meido: She's dressed like one, wearing a short frilly dress and Zettai Ryouiki under the apron.
  • Parental Substitute: She doesn't have kids, but takes care of the slave kids as if they were so.
  • Self-Made Woman: Or better said, Self Made Bear Woman.
  • Shipper on Deck: She encourages Tohsaka to dance with Ako, and also ships Kotarō/Natsumi.
  • Taking the Bullet: For Kotarō and Natsumi.
  • Tsundere: Sweet type. One moment, she's exigent but affectionate. The other, she will wreck anyone going past her limits.

    Tournament announcer 

Voiced by: Mana Hirata (Japanese)



Voiced by: Jirô Saitô (Japanese)

A mysterious figure who attacks "Nagi" not long after he descends into Ostia, having a particular grudge against Ala Rubra.

  • Casting a Shadow: He's a shadow magic user, though he doesn't seem to suffer the Full-Frontal Assault problem other shadow magic users encounter.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Natsumi assumes that because he uses shadow magic and dresses in all black, he must be evil. She's corrected by Kotaro and sure enough he's not as bad as he initially seems.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: Subverted. Though he tries to seriously kill Negi at the start, Rakan swears he's actually not a bad guy once you get to know him.

Hellas Empire


The third Imperial Princess of the Hellas Empire and seems to serve as their primary diplomat. While publicly she appears refined and quiet, when she's away from the crowds and cameras she's quite the glompy Genki Girl. Furthermore, she is one of the strongest allies of Ala Rubra after they rescued her when she and Arika were imprisoned together.

  • Absolute Cleavage: Her most well known outfit leaves her entire middle exposed. The main source of support with the clothes seems to be prayers and good fortune.

  • Horned Humanoid: She has horns on the back of her head that curl around her skull.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Jack Rakan is much bigger than her. This likely contributes her willingness Piggyback Cute with him as much as possible.
  • Impossibly Cool Clothes: Yes, the bared midriff and Absolute Cleavage are nice but... how on Earth you are avoiding a Wardrobe Malfunction with that one lady?
  • May–December Romance: She's 30, and her object of affection (Jack Rakan) is 50-60. Though given that they're both slow aging races, it's equivalent to a 15 year old teenager crushing on a 25-30 year old man. It's one way, since Jack met her as a child, and still sees her as one.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She wears a leotard-like outfit along with Zettai Ryouiki boots, shows off an exposed belly and her breasts are also half-revealed.
  • Older Than She Looks: She's 30, but looks like in her early 20's due to being part of a Long Lived Race.

  • Rapunzel Hair: She has knee-length hair suitable for a royal lady.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: She's an Imperial princess, a diplomat, and implied to be a fairly powerful mage as well.
  • She Is All Grown Up: She was a cute young girl in the backstory, is now an adult and absolutely hot. Even Kotarō is stunned at the difference.
  • Showgirl Skirt: She wears a crescent-shaped skirt that exposes the front of her legs.
  • Tomboy Princess: According to Rakan, which she takes slight offense to. To be fair, she really isn't very ladylike when not working.
  • Tsurime Eyes: Her eyes are notably sharp but her personality is more spirited than "sharp".
  • Uptown Girl: A princess in love with the commoner warrior and once slave Rakan.
  • Womanchild: She's thirty, but can act playful and childish when away from the public's eye, especially around Rakan. When Rakan calls her out on this, she excuses her behavior as her being a teenager by her race's standards.

Ariadne Battle Maiden Knight Squad Cadet

Voiced by: Satomi Sato (Japanese)

Another student from the Magic Academy, she's the first one that Yue interacts with. Also, she is the one who caused Yue's loss of memory, by accidentally hitting her with a spell.

  • The Atoner: She feels really bad about giving Yue amnesia, and compensates by taking her in and helping her out at every opportunity. She eventually comes clean to her about what happened.
  • Book Dumb: One of the worst students in her class before Yue arrives. The two work together to overcome that.

  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Blonde hair and dark skin.

Canis Niger

A mercenary association of which we get to see in action the seventeenth unit of the bounty-hunting division.This unit seems to consist of four people: Alexander "Twilight" Zaytsev- the captain of the unit, Razo, Paio II and Morborgran.
    In General 

    Alexander Zaytsev 

The leader of the mercenary group.


A reptile-like demihuman.

    Paio II 

A demihuman girl who besides working as a mercenary, is a self-proclaimed Boob Goddess with an obsession with groping naked breasts.

  • Back for the Finale: She returns in the second to last chapter of the series after a lengthy absence.
  • Chekhov's Gag: When Paio poses as 'Chichigami' at baths she is shown like a hindu goddess, with six arms and all, she use them (more) seriously against Yue.
  • Combat Tentacles: Courtesy of Paio's sand worms, they tend to be a little naughty.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Her true appearance is that of a young girl with dark skin and blonde hair.
  • Dirty Mind-Reading: Nodoka wasn't exactly happy looking inside Paio's brain as it's filled with nothing but boobs.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Female: When first encountered, Paio II is constantly thinking about grabbing the boobs of the ladies Canis Niger is fighting, and the scene is played out every bit as seriously as you would expect Attempted Rape to be played out. Then in a later chapter Paio II makes a return, except in this case it is revealed that she is a girl as well, and her subsequent groping of all the girls in the bathhouse is played up for pure comedy value. In the penultimate chapter, Paio II undresses and molests Yue in a manner that practically crosses into Black Comedy Rape.
  • A God Am I: Played for Laughs; Paio refers to herself as Chichigami (Boob Goddess).
  • Horned Humanoid: Paio II has a small pair of horns on her forehead.
  • It Must Be Mine!: Paio's reaction to any boobies in near area.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: She's a prime molester who only thinks about getting her hands on boobs. It's mostly Played for Laughs, though.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: She can grow two extra pairs of arms, although instead of fighting, she uses them for much more depraved things.
  • Pest Controller: She's a Bugmaster, as Yue precises.
  • Punny Name: Paio II's name can also mean "tits" in Japanese.
  • Samus Is a Girl: Paio II first shows up as a tall bounty hunter with a costume that hides the face. The obsession with boobies also gives the reader the impression that Paio II is a creepy and perverted man. Some chapters later, Paio II is revealed to be a cute girl when she Skinship Gropes the hell out of pretty much all the girls in the bathhouse. This comes across as a bit of a Double Standard, but she's really a lot less threatening without her fighting costume, which is rather monstrous and effectively quadruples (at least!) her body mass.
  • Unusual Ears: She has goat-like ears.


A demon that looks like monstrous skeleton.

  • Dem Bones: He's a skeletal humanoid with six arms, which he somehow hides two pairs under his coat, with the only conspicuous thing in his normal guise being his skull head adorned with ram two horns.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite his monstrous and scary appearance, Nodoka's Artifact reveals he thinks like a fairly normal person and actually dislikes how his opponents always attack him first, often all together, because of the way he looks.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: He has six arms.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Negi assumes he's a powerful Demon kin, so he doesn't hold back on Morbogram when saving Nodoka.



Blazing Rumbling Trucker

A truck driver who gives Yuna and Makie a ride to Ostia from the oasis town they were stranded in by Cosmo Entelecheia. Since developing a fondness for the girls on the way there, he's decided to stick with Ala Alba and help them save the world.

Kristian is voiced by: Hisafumi Oda (Japanese)

Lynn is voiced by: Chika Anzai (Japanese)

Craig is voiced by: Kenichi Mochizuki (Japanese)

Four adventurers who take Nodoka under their wing upon her arrival to the Magical World.

    Luna's elder sister 

The elder sister of Luna aka Shiori. A young woman living with her sister in a small village of mind-readers in a mountainous region of the Magical World.

  • Disposable Woman: She's introduced in the flashback solely to make Fate furious enough to kill Secundum for erasing her.
  • First Love: She's implied to be the first person Fate had a crush on. His Second Love would be Negi.
  • Florence Nightingale Effect: One day, while flying Fate's core started to fail and he fell from the sky. Luna's sister found him and took care of him for three days until he recovered. This and her delicious coffee made Fate fond of her.
  • Hidden Eyes: Her eyes are always covered by shadow.
  • Implied Love Interest: Considering the way he usually is, Fate treated her well and she's the reason for his fondness of coffee. It isn't made clear if his feelings for her were romantic, but he did care about her and her death enraged him enough to kill Secundum.
  • The Lost Lenore: Fate's fondness of her was strong enough that he killed Secundum to avenge her and he apparently drinks several cups of coffee every day in her memory.
  • No Name Given: Never referred to by name.
  • Pointy Ears: She has long, elf-like ears like her sister.
  • Posthumous Character: She only appears only in Fate's flashbacks, which conclude with her death.
  • Promotion to Parent: Implied. We never see her and Luna's parents, so she probably was the only guardian to her little sister before Fate.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Hip-length hair.
  • Satellite Love Interest: She's not even named. All that is known about her is that she was a young woman Fate probably had feelings for and the only purpose of her existence is giving Fate a source of backstory.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: While she only has short appearances in a flashback, it was meeting her and her cruel death what shaped a lot of Fate's current character, such as his "hobby" of picking up war orphans since the first girl he took in was her little sister.
  • Sorry That I'm Dying: She spent her last moments apologizing to Fate for not being able to make coffee for him again.
  • Through His Stomach: Fate quickly becomes fond of her because she mades truly amazing coffee.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: She was a kind young woman who was fatally injured by humans with Fantastic Racism and then erased by Secundum in order to show Fate the cruelty found in the Magic World.
  • Touch Telepathy: Her race has the ability of mind-reading, activated by touch.
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: She looks like an older, long-haired version of her sister.
  • Walking Spoiler: Pretty much everything about her is an important revelation in Fate's backstory.
