Denizens of Nazarick

The various Non-Player Character created by the 41 Supreme Beings.

Floor Guardians

    open/close all folders 

    In General 
The Floor Guardians are the inner circle of Non Player Characters who directly serve Momonga as executive lieutenants and advisors. Absolute master of an assigned floor, a Floor Guardian directs entire armies and powerful subordinates of their own in defense of the Great Tomb. In theory they answer to no one but Momonga, but in practice are obligated to coordinate with Albedo so that their actions do not interfere with one another or instructions Momonga exclusively assigns to the Overseer. As the Supreme Beings' chosen elite, the denizens of Nazarick show proper respect to the Floor Guardians for their immense authority and terrifying power.
  • Apologizes a Lot: The guardians are quick to apologize when they think they've said something to offend Ainz (who usually needs it explained to him how it could have been taken as an insult).
  • Bad Boss: Albedo, Shalltear, and Demiurge are more than willing to fatally dispose of subordinates who fail them. On the flipside: Aura, Cocytus, Mare, and Victim are less enthusiastic of killing minions if they can prove themselves in other capacities.
  • Balance of Power: One exists between the physical fighters; Albedo would beat Sebas, but lose to Cocytus, who would lose to Sebas.
  • Berserk Button: Anything that they consider an offense to either the name, actions, or character of Ainz is sure to elicit a negative reaction from them. Push this button further and they deliver either a swift death or subject the offender to something so horrible that they'd wish they were dead.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Ainz cannot fathom how some of the guardians operate or just how far they're willing to go to obey what they think are his orders.
  • Evil Virtues: Loyalty above all else, as they are all fanatically loyal to both Ainz and Nazarick. Some like Demiurge and Albedo show Resourcefulness; Albedo and Shalltear display Love towards Ainz (accidentally programmed in the former's case, while the latter was programmed to be a necrophile); Cocytus and Sebas have shown Honor...
  • Humans Are Insects: With rare exception, the Non Player Characters in Nazarick all hold the view that humans have no inherent worth. Many will not even bat an eye over using them as livestock, eating them, torturing them For the Evulz, or other horrifying things.
  • I Want Grand Kids: Wouldn't be actual grandparents but most of them love the idea of raising Ainz's children and strongly encourage him to have them.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Momonga/Ainz's word is law. If he says the sky is yellow with purple polka-dots, then the sky is yellow with purple polka-dots. Unless the Supreme Beings who created them said otherwise.
  • Overzealous Underling: The guardians live only to serve Ainz's wishes, even when he gave no indication of what he wanted. Most of the plot kicks off when Ainz unthinkingly says conquering the world might be interesting, which Demiurge interprets and relays to the other guardians as an ironbound command to Take Over the World. Also, the one pet peeve they have in common is anything that they consider an affront to Ainz. Their reaction to this is death or horrible torture to anyone who dare sully the name of their master.
  • Parental Abandonment: They view their creators as Supreme Beings who left them behind for unknown reasons and latch onto Ainz as the only one who didn't. Ainz on the other hand sees them as his friends' children and does what he can to protect them.
  • Psycho Supporter: The "evil" Guardians are all this to Momonga/Ainz. And most of the Guardians are evil.
  • Refugee from TV Land: Are video game characters brought to life.
  • Self-Insert: In-Universe: As they were created with their creator's likes, dislikes and fetishes in mind, they're quite close to their original creators, which lessens Ainz's sense of loss.
  • Standard Royal Court: The sociopolitical structure of the Great Tomb. Momonga is the absolute God-Emperor, with the Guardians filling their roles as handpicked nobility and court advisors.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork:
    • As powerful as they are individually, the Floor Guardians have no idea how to fight as a team and some don't play well with the others. In the first Drama CD, Ainz orders them to fight an opponent any of them could handle on their own as a team specifically to improve their teamwork.
    • There's a severe difference in karma rating as well: while most are evil and some are at the absolute most evil rating (-500), some others are good (up to +300), which leads to diverging opinions. This is demonstrated well with Sebas (the aforementioned +300) and his underling Solution (-400). When Sebas shelters a broken and abused sex worker purely out of the goodness of his heart, Solution immediately assumes he must be plotting against Nazarick, because she simply cannot fathom the idea of someone doing something without an ulterior motive.
  • Undying Loyalty:
    • All of them hold an unwavering loyalty towards Momonga/Ainz, though there are subtle differences in how it manifests. In the case of Cocytus, it's "follow the master's orders no matter what, even if you think he's headed towards certain death". For someone like Demiurge, it's "ensure the master's well-being no matter what, even if you have to disobey a direct order and displease him in the process". And for some of them, their loyalty to the Supreme Beings who created them is stronger.
    • While Brainwashed and Crazy, Shalltear mocked Ainz for not being Peroroncino and acknowledged she would have happily attacked Ainz if Peroroncino desired it.
    • When Pandora's Actor took the appearance of Tabula Smaragdina, Albedo was momentarily stunned and at a loss for words. However she was the first NPC to realize it wasn't her creator and became especially pissed at the idea someone had the gall to pull the illusion, while the other NPC's remained dazed and confused. This introduces an interesting conundrum to Abeldo's secret plan to kill the Supreme Beings if they exist in the New World. Is Tabula the sole exception, along with Ainz? Regardless, she does consider Tabula her father, and under the impression he would approve a marriage between herself and Ainz.
    • Though Demiurge sees Ainz as the greatest intellectual and evilest entity on the planet, he recognizes that Ulbert Alain Odle was more evil and possessed greater magical power.
    • Aura and Mare found themselves very uncomfortable and filled with inner confusion when Ainz asked them a theoretical question about forcing them to do something Bukubukuchagama wouldn't want them to. Aura once informed Yuri Alpha that, "Ainz is the nicest person after Bukubukuchagama-sama."
    • When alone with his thoughts, Sebas Tian always reminesces about Touch Me. Whenever he encounters a problem outside of Ainz's instructions, he improvises his actions according to quotes and deeds Touch Me was known for.

    Albedo 

Albedo

Voiced by: Yumi Hara (Japanese), Elizabeth Maxwell (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/albedo_3.png
The Merciful, Pure-White Devil
The Overseer of the Floor Guardians of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. Responsible for general management and supervision of the Floor Guardians, in addition to maintaining administrative and operational functions of the dungeon, Albedo reigns unquestioned as Momonga's second in command. A succubus tailored with Mighty Glacier specializations that was created by Tabula Smaragdina, and the sister of Nigredo and Rubedo.
  • Attack Reflector: When one member of the Sunlight Scripture launched a rock at Momonga, she used a skill that immediately sent the rock through the guy's head.
  • An Axe to Grind: Sports a wicked looking battle-axe when she accompanies Momonga during his visit to Carne Village.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: She's downright eager for Momonga to take her virginity.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Subverted. She is the supreme overseer of all of Nazarick's floors, making her the highest-ranked NPC in Nazarick who answers only to the Supreme Beings themselves. But although she is level 100, her power is only middling for one, being on par with Sebas' and Cocytus' and weaker than Shalltear's, Mare's and that of several "living weapons" of Nazarick.
  • Beauty Is Bad: It's noted once that she's very beautiful. Too beautiful and in the wrong way, which is unnerving and an obvious sign of her true nature as a demon.
  • Berserk Button: Any perceived insult against Momonga or Nazarick, real or imagined, sends her into a rage.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She is a beautiful lady bearing the title "Warm And Caring Devil Of Pure White". She is head-over-heels in love with Momonga and obsessed with catering to every single one of his desires, spoken or unspoken. Oh, and her karma is -500 (Extremely Evil). Even the monstrous Shalltear is "only" at -450. Suffice to say, woe betide you if you encounter her and you're not Momonga or one of her allies.
  • Black Knight: Her battle armor is black, contrasting her casual attire. She is also one of the strongest Nazarick denizens and The Dragon to Momonga.
  • Blush Sticker: In the manga, when in the presence of Momonga. They're so strong they are even seen outside of her suit of armor.
  • Chainmail Bikini: Averted. When in battle, she wears a full plate armor that covers her whole body. She actually laments and despises the fact that Momonga can't see her body when wearing it, and wishes she wore Chainmail Bikini instead.
  • Christmas Cake: Shalltear loves to point out that Albedo is "expired" whenever the two argue about something, which causes the succubus to rage into kill mode and make verbal jabs at Shalltear's A-Cup Angst Fake Boobs.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She's not happy anytime she perceives a female character other than her getting 'preferential treatment' from Momonga (or even a male character who looks female). In an odd twist, Albedo doesn't really mind Momonga having other romantic interests so long as she's the "legal wife." This puts her at direct odds with Shalltear.
  • Crazy-Prepared: In the manga, she reveals herself to be proficient as a housewife with housekeeping and laundry by spectacularly announcing to Demiurge that she's made clothes for her potential children with Momonga up to age 5. And unisex.
  • The Dragon: As the Overseer of the Guardians she is Ainz' second-in-command.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: With the exception of Momonga, she intends to locate and kill any other Supreme Beings that may be in the New World. She tricked Momonga into giving her full authority to assemble and command a secret task-force that includes Pandora's Actor and Rubedo in its ranks. She jokingly called it the most powerful team in Nazarick... It's no joke. Logically, this is a gamble, considering Shalltear demonstrated Nazarick NPCs can be subverted. It puts Albedo and her team at risk of an encounter which can end with themselves being used as weapons against Nazarick. But if it pays off, it would eliminate the chances of one of Ainz's friends showing up as a rival that could split Nazarick. Or it would be killing off Ainz's friends and potential allies.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: She's an evil devil with long black hair and really pale skin.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
    • As much as an evil demon she is, she truly loves Ainz with all her heart and would even kill herself if that would make him happy. However this love makes her more villainous, the most notable example being her desire to kill the other Supreme Beings.
    • She shares a friendly relationship with the other Guardians. On one occasion, she actually worries about Shalltear, her love rival, after she fell into a depression.
    • She also loves her little sister Rubedo, and doesn't share her other sister Nigredo's fear of her, as she finds her adorable.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She couldn't comprehend why Ainz switched places with Gazef Stronoff, a human, when the latter was in disadvantage against the Slane Theocracy. Ainz, who did it because he was impressed, was aware of this and lied, saying it was Pragmatic Villainy and she was delighted seeing her master use that human as a mere pawn.
  • The Extremist Was Right: While Albedo's desire to kill any other Supreme Being before they can become a threat to Momonga seems way too extreme, the history of the new world shows most of the other players that were transported from YGGDRASIL, like the Eight Greed Kings, eventually turned on and killed each other.
  • Eye Pop: Her reaction in the manga when she notices Mare's newly-rewarded guild ring.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: She's got the looks of a lovely angel. Only when you check her karma you can see just how much of an evil monster she really is.
  • Fallen Angel: Her backstory has her as this, but she does not have any levels in any angelic race, only demonic ones.
  • Friendly Rivalry: She and Demiurge don't get along from a philosophical and bureaucratic perspective when it comes to the topic of how to best serve and carry out the will of Ainz. She is quite aware that Demiurge would petition for her Overseer position, were she to ever commit a colossal failure. She is also bothered that Demiurge is the only person who rivals her intellect as the second most cunning denizen of Nazarick (both assume Ainz is by far the greatest mastermind in the Great Tomb).
  • Game Face: It is implied that she, like Shalltear, has a true form that has yet to be shown. It is heavily hinted that said true form is enormous. Due to some subtle hints, the most prevalent theory is that she is a Nalfeshnee. Notably, her true form is implied to be both hairy and very large.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: She is quick to anger whenever someone insults Ainz or tarnishes the reputation of Nazarick. She verbally (and sometimes physically) admonishes punishment on the slightest perceived failure, often forcing Ainz to order Albedo to calm down.
  • Hellish Horse: Has a Bicorn, an unicorn Evil Knockoff, as her personal steed. Aura and Shalltear found great amusement in realizing why it wouldn't let a succubus ride it.
  • Hellish Pupils: She has vertically slit pupils.
  • Horned Humanoid: On her left and right temples are two thick horns protruding crookedly.
  • Horny Devils: She's a succubus and was originally designed to be a nymphomaniac. Even though she's focused solely on Momonga now, she's still very "excitable." People who see her are uneasy because she has a level of beauty that could only be possessed by a demon. Which, of course, is exactly what she is.
  • Hypocrite: She gets really, really pissed whenever anyone dares to question Ainz's judgement. Even though she wants to massacre any of the Supreme Beings she can find, knowing full well he wants to reconnect with them, because she thinks they are all traitors who abandoned him.
  • Idiot Hair: She has a strand of hair that stands prominently atop her head. She's definitely not an idiot or innocent in the moral or ethical sense.
  • Ignored Enamored Underling: Her life seems pretty hard even if she is a tank; hanging on to Ainz's every word means not knowing what a "DM call" was taken to heart not to mention his various, if understandable, rejections to her advances.
  • Impractically Fancy Outfit: Her white dress with the gold lace webbing is incredibly elegant, but also incredibly impractical for combat. That's why she swaps it out for full plate armor before going into battle.
  • Irony: She is a succubus who is still a virgin.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Towards the end of episode 4, while in full plate armor no less, she can't contain how awesome she thought Momonga was at defeating his enemies.
  • Light Is Not Good: Despite being associated with the color white, she is one of the most evil denizens of Nazarick - on par with Manipulative Bastard Demiurge!
  • Love Potion/More Than Mind Control: It doesn't take long for Ainz to tell her that her feelings for him were because, in so many words, he reprogrammed her personality as a joke before Yggdrasil switched over and she became sentient. She takes it in stride and doesn't mind that detail, stating her own biased opinion that Tabula would forgive him.
  • Mad Love: Albedo is madly in love with Momonga and she will gladly do whatever he asks her for. She will even do things she knows he doesn't want if she thinks that's the best for him, such as manipulating him and planning to kill the other Supreme Beings so she doesn't have any other master besides him and to "protect" Momonga from them.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She manipulates Momonga into giving her a task force for the purpose of finding the Supreme Beings without letting him know that it's a "Seek and Destroy" mission.
  • Meaningful Name: Albedo is Latin for "white". She is a Woman in White, and her title is "Warm And Caring Devil Of Pure White".
  • Mighty Glacier: Her highest stats are in defense, but her high Physical Attack stops her from falling into Stone Wall category. Her Agility, on the other hand, is only middling at 60/100. Being The Dragon to Momonga, the two of them have the potential to form a good duo, with the defense-oriented warrior preventing enemies from reaching the incredibly powerful, but (relatively) frail spellcaster.
  • Odd Friendship: Bonds with the human Renner of all people over their shared Yandere tendencies for the men they love, despite generally considering humans to be less than bugs.
  • The Only One I Trust: The individuals she selects for her plan to kill the absent Supreme Beings. Understandably many of the Floor Guardians would at least inform Momonga of the truth, if not outright oppose the plan, so her choices follow a special criteria. Pandora's Actor and Rubedo are among those named, whom she intends to use.
  • Poisonous Friend: She is so loyal to Momonga that she wants to kill the other Supreme Beings to make sure that he has no competition and so that they can't hurt him by abandoning him again. She knows perfectly well that this is the complete opposite of what Momonga wants (but not what she thinks he needs).
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches down to her knees.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Jet-black hair, pure white skin and just as beautiful as an angel.
  • Really Gets Around: The last line in her character description was "she's a slut". Ainz changed it to "she loves Momonga" as a joke that backfired spectacularly.
  • Red Baron: "Warm And Caring Devil Of Pure White"
  • The Resenter: Deeply resents the other Supreme Beings for abandoning Nazarick and wants to kill them so that she doesn't have to serve anyone but Momonga.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Due to Momonga jokingly playing with her settings before the server shut down and he found himself in the New World, Albedo only has eyes for Momonga.
  • Stone Wall: While she is not weak offensively, her highest stats are HP, Defense, Magic Defense and Resistance, her skills (Aegis, Parry, Parry Missile, Walls of Jericho) almost all seem to be focused on defense, and even her armor offers almost no benefits except high defenses and notably allows her to withstand up to 3 powerful spells without taking any damage. In YGGDRASIL, she was never meant to defeat an invasion: the serious defenses are all located on the lower floors, and if an enemy force has reached Albedo, they've clearly proven themselves to be far too powerful to be taken down by a simple NPC. Her only purpose is to stall the enemy for a few precious minutes to buy time for the Supreme Beings to either prepare to stop the opposing force or evacuate with the guild's treasures if there's no chance of victory.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She mostly acts cold and collected, but while with Ainz she becomes much more emotional and warmer, even displaying a very cute and adorable side of hers.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: A devil with yellowish-gold eyes.
  • Sycophantic Servant: All Floor Guardians are loyal to Momonga, but Albedo gets especially eager when serving him and worshiping him. To the point of wanting to kill the other Supreme Beings who may or may not be in the New World since Momonga is the only master she wants and possibly because she thinks their abandonment of the guild and Momonga in particular is unforgivable. She doesn't even have any respect for the name of "Ainz Ooal Gown" and longs for the day she can call him Momonga again.
  • The Vamp: Averted, but as an NPC, she was initially programmed as being promiscuous. Considering the limited functionality of Yggdrasil NPCs, that was pretty much for flavor than anything actionable. She could have been this in the New World, but she only has eyes for Ainz.
  • Villain Has a Point: Her desire to eliminate the other Supreme Beings might seem out-of-proportions, but this goal can be considered logical. After all, the Supreme Beings pretty much abandoned their own creations, which is considered Parental Abandonment as the NPC's are now living beings, and their comrade Ainz, and Albedo has seen the pain and loneliness he has been feeling since then. Also, she knows that most of the NPC's are more loyal to their creators than to Ainz and Nazarick, so some might actually decide to leave Nazarick if they find evidence that the other Supreme Beings are out there or worse, trigger a civil war.
    • Her worries are made even more justified knowing that YGGDRASIL players have come to the New World before in groups, and more often than not, they ended up slaughtering each other.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Emphasis on "violent." She will take any perceived threat against Momonga or Nazarick as a call to arms, unless Momonga explicitly tells her to stand down, and even then, she has trouble restraining herself. In volume 1 she flies into apocalyptic fury when the Dominion Authority summoned by Nigun causes slight damage to Momonga.
  • Virgin Power: Inverted. She has the ability to summon a bicorn, which is basically a unicorn with two horns. However, they're the opposite of unicorns and represent impurity, so they can only be ridden by non virgins. That would be fine if she was still programmed to be a 'total slut' character, but that line of personality was removed such that she's obsessively in love with Ainz and wouldn't sleep with anyone else. She also doesn't seem to fully grasp that sex with Ainz is physically impossible.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Shalltear when it comes to Momonga's affection. The two will spend hours arguing, threatening, and insulting each other over who would make a better wife for him. However the pair also realize he's a tough nut to crack and willingly trade information about sex appeal or advances that failed to capture Momonga's attention. It's worth noting that while the pair throw verbal abuse at each other, they always come to a temporary truce before it turns into a physical scuffle.
  • Woman in White: She is one of the highest-ranked commanders in Nazarick and usually dresses in white. Her title is "Merciful Pure White Devil", and her name also means "White". Interestingly, her battle armor is jet-black instead, making her a Woman in White yet a Black Knight.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Prepares to chop up Enri and Nemu when she sees their behavior as disrespectful to Momonga. Fortunately for them, Momonga hastily tells her to stand down.
  • Yandere: Albedo gets very scary when she fights with Shalltear over who will be Momonga's "legal wife". She also will be happy to kill anyone that she thinks might hurt her beloved, including the other Supreme Beings.
    • The first season ED illustrates this part of her personality.
    • Notable in that she's like this purely because of Momonga, who rewrote her character description for laughs to make her madly in love with him in the last few minutes before YGGDRASIL's servers were supposed to shut down, and now it's too late to change her back.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: Her eyes are yellowish-gold to denote that despite of her looks, she's an evil, cruel devil at heart.

    Shalltear Bloodfallen 

Shalltear Bloodfallen

Voiced by: Sumire Uesaka (Japanese), Felecia Angelle (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shalltear_bloodfallen_profile.png

Shalltear is a Floor Guardian who holds the unique distinction of commanding three floors of Nazarick (levels one through three). While her compatriots within the Great Tomb can individually claim to be physically stronger, possess greater martial ability, or wield more magical aptitude: Shalltear's diverse combination of offensive, defensive, melee, and spellcasting abilities, in addition to powerful regeneration abilities makes her one of the most powerful combatants among the Floor Guardians, even more powerful than Ainz himself. These facts are things she takes overwhelming pride in. Created by Peroroncino, she is a True Vampire whose Min-Maxing combination of holy and undead specializations make her an One-Woman Army.


  • A-Cup Angst: One of her many personality settings is being a Pettanko, and she doesn't like it. Aura tends to tease her about this.
  • Achilles' Heel: The undead race possesses several immunities as well as weaknesses. Shalltear is weak to Fire and Light element, as well as Holy magic. However, her class as a Holy Valkrye gives her a few spells and abilities to negate holy attacks.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In light novel illustrations she has ivory pale skin. In the anime her skin tone is a lavender shade. The later is actually more accurate for a corpse (skin turns a purplish tone 4 hours after death, just before rigor mortis starts to kick in).
  • Almighty Janitor:
    • She is the sole Guardian regarded powerful enough to protect three floors, and the trump card of Nazarick's first defense line, but is subordinate to Albedo and Demiurge in the overall Great Tomb's hierarchy.
    • In Volume 11 Ainz begins to realize that Shalltear had become Nazarick's Human Pack Mule, thanks to her Gate spell being so useful to transport supplies and personnel. Shalltear regards the entire affair as part of her punishment for the Brainwashed and Crazy incident, but in reality this was never the case. Her magic's utility was just incomparable to anyone else's.
  • The Atoner: After being brainwashed and resurrected, she tries her best to redeem herself.
  • Aura Vision: She has a spell or ability that allows her to see her opponent's remaining MP as an aura form.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: "Shalltear Bloodfallen" is a pretty awesome name for a vampire. Additionally, it's also a Meaningful Name in that she "shall tear them to pieces" and uses the blood of the fallen for her magic.
  • Badass Boast: In her "fight" with Brain in episode 10, she calls herself "cruel, cold and terrible, as well as quite a beautiful little monster."
  • Bad Boss: Played with. She'll give her minions a certain amount of slack if they fail at something they had no reasonable chance of succeeding at, but too many stupid moves and she'll kill them.
  • The Baroness: The Sexpot type. She's young-looking, attractive, and her personality fits the type to a T, with an emphasis on the dominatrix aspect and sadism. And that doesn't stop her from getting lovey-dovey around her boss.
  • Bishōnen Line: While turning into her lamprey form for combat normally, the first time she really goes all-out against Ainz after being mind-controlled she retains her normal form and dons her valkyrie armor instead. There may be a different reason for this, though: none of the combatants involved have any blood to spill, likely leaving Shalltear incapable of going berserk anyways.
  • The Berserker: She has quite effective minmaxing to get rid of her traditional weaknesses. One of the few that are left is that when she gets covered in blood she begins to Blood Frenzy, losing the ability to think clearly in exchange for growing power. That's fine as a floor boss, but not very helpful when the mission requires a bit more finesse.
    • The events of volume 3 illustrate this quite well: Ainz sends her on a mission to capture a Martial Abilities user for him to study. What happens instead is that Shalltear cannot resist the temptation of working herself up into a blood frenzy despite having absolutely no need for it (she was already overpowering her opponents by a massive margin). She proceeds to slaughter everyone in the cave, lets her intended target escape, and eventually gets herself mind-controlled by the Slaine Theocracy.
  • Blade Catch: Even better. She blocks Brain's sword with only three fingers and later deflects his attacks with her fingernails.
  • Blood Bath: She bathes herself in the blood of her foes to work herself into a frenzy and transform into a monstrous form.
  • Blood Magic: Shalltear can manipulate the blood of those she slays.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: She didn't even remember Brain Unglaus the second time they met. Justified as there was a bit of memory loss when she was revived at Nazarick.
  • Cherry Tapping: Shatters Brain Unglaus' confidence in their first encounter when she effortlessly parries his sword with her fingernail. In their second encounter she does this again but Brain is able to shave a millimeter or two off of it using one of Gazef's techniques. He is extremely happy that he had become strong enough to do that much to such a powerful opponent.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Downplayed. She's fine with the concept of polygamy in regards to Momonga, but she's competing with Albedo for first place.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Lampshaded. During the battle between Ainz and Shalltear, Shalltear using her "household" monsters as batteries to recover her own HP is called "dirty" by Ainz.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: She grows increasingly turned on during her duel with Ainz, but is obviously too busy to deal with that the normal way. So she decides to slake her lust with murder instead.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: She is subjected to what Momonga deems to be a suitable punishment. Needless to say, it's no punishment at all to her.
  • Cute and Psycho: Momonga finds her cute. Just about everybody else in the world finds her psycho. This is not particularly surprising - when she is around her beloved Momonga, Shalltear does get a lot of absolutely adorable moments. Her enemies are not so lucky.
  • Cute Little Fangs: A given for a cute vampire like her.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Loves Ainz because necrophilia is one of her fetishes, but also violates her Vampire Bride minions. Most of her fetishes are played for laughs, though.
    • Yuri Alpha fears being around Shalltear, because the battle maid is a virginal undead creature. She presses all of Shalltear's fetish buttons and is eyed hungrily as a potential sexual conquest by the vampire.
  • Doppleganger Attack: Her trump card, the Einherjar. It is a temporary summon that counts as a golem, meaning it is immune to instant death. It has no magic or skills, but it possesses the same base stats and equipments as Shalltear herself, just in case she isn't hard enough to beat.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: After her fight with Ainz, even though she was being mind-controlled, she still blames herself and falls into depression and stays in the bar drinking.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Her way of dressing, as befits a vampire girl.
  • Evil Albino: A sadistic vampire with white hair, really pale skin and bloody red eyes.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Double-subverted. When she realizes that Ainz has just been toying with her, she goes berserk and desperately attacks him. But once Ainz invokes Fallen Down, she calmly praises Ainz as the strongest of all Nazarick and smiles with tears as she dies.
  • Fake Boobs: She is often called out by other female characters for padding her bra.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Shalltear's arrogance and dominatrix personality makes it difficult for most in Nazarick to actually like her as a person. She is usually feared or grudgingly respected, with three notable exceptions: Aura Bella Fiora whom she is Vitriolic Best Buds, Mare Bello Fiore whom she considers an innocent little brother, and Solution Epsilon whom she shares interests and hobbies with.
    • The only matter of contention she has with Albedo is their Psychotic Love Triangle. On matters aside from who gets to be Ainz's head wife, the pair get along quite well and share a lot in common.
  • Game Face: Vampires are not pretty in this setting apart from her minions, the vampire brides. She just looks cute because she's hiding her true appearance, which doesn't even look human. People who see this form are surprised that it can even speak.
    • This is hinted at early on when Albedo calls her a lamprey as an insult.
  • Good Powers, Bad People: You wouldn't know it from initial appearances that she's specialized in holy magic. But yes, she does have 10 levels in Cleric, among other skills, despite being bad to the bone.
  • Healing Magic Is the Hardest: Knows some priest spells, but being undead prevents her using their healing spells.
  • Hellish Pupils: She has vertically slit pupils.
  • Hidden Depths: Volume 11 highlights that should she manage to resist letting her bloodlust take over, she is a scarily competent strategist. Ainz tasks her with capturing a squadron of Quakoa, numbering around 100 individual soldiers without harming them, and she succeeds with aplomb. Her strategy is simple but highly effective. Cut off all escape routes, surround them with undead, and then personally waltz in and paralyze them en masse, binding those who are resitant with ropes.
  • I Love the Dead: She's built to have a lot of fetishes. Necrophilia is one of them, so she finds Ainz gorgeous.
  • Japanese Dialects: She periodically dips into the obscure "Arinsu" dialect that came from, and was exclusively spoken by the Oiran of the infamous historical Red Light District of Yoshiwara. Her creator being Peroroncino is certainly to blame for this.
  • Jizzed in My Pants: Early on, she says witnessing Momonga's magnificent evil aura has put her underwear in an emergency situation.
  • Lamprey Mouth: Sports one in her true form with a single inward facing row of fangs and a long protruding tongue.
  • Lesbian Vampire: Though she loves Ainz, she consorts with her two brides and fantasizes about various other women.
  • Light Is Not Good: She's a depraved and evil vampire who is also a Holy Valkyrie.
  • Life Drain: Her divine-class item, Spult Lance, is a strike-type weapon that drains the life out of the people it hits to heal herself. This bypasses even the undead race's immunity to Life Drain.
  • Magic Knight: She is equally (that is to say highly) proficient in melee combat and magic.
  • Man of Kryptonite: She's an undead (immune to instant death effects) that with specialties in holy magic and can cast fire spells (which the undead are weak to) and a class build that works wonders against spellcasters. Momonga wonders if she was specifically designed to kill him.
  • Master of All: Together with Mare, she has the most balanced stats of the Guardians, and all of those stats are quite high.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She was created by Peroroncino to be one mostly to himself. A fan of eroge games and a paedophile, he made Shalltear to cater to several of his fetishes (apparently including necrophilia since she is in love with the skeletal Ainz).
  • Munchkin:
    • She's an undead, granting immunity to instant death and most status effects. She's also a holy valkyrie, granting her spells and abilities to neutralize holy attacks. She can also heal herself with negative energy and has special abilities designed to regenerate and survive prolonged onslaughts to outlast most of her opponents. All these benefits make her the most powerful of the Floor Guardians, barring Gargantua.
    • It's eventually stated that a fully geared Shalltear is equal to a minimum rated Top Tier player character, ranking her in the top 10% of Yggdrasil builds.
  • Must Be Invited: She's capable of entering places uninvited, but as a vampire, she has a strong natural resistance to the idea.
  • Mystical White Hair: A vampire with silver hair.
  • Naked on Revival: When she is killed by Ainz to break her Mind Control and then revived, she respawns naked.
  • No-Sell: The Undead cannot be critted and life-drained, and is immune to most status effects and instant death spells. Shalltear's Negative Impact Shield also does this to most attacks, although it can only be used thrice a day.
  • Not Growing Up Sucks: Being undead, she laments that she will never have the body of a mature woman.
  • One-Woman Army: Upon hearing of her weaker abilities a group of high ranked adventurers estimate that an army of ten thousand men would be needed to match her. She was only using low level magic and is actually one of the strongest combatants in all of Nazarick.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: That's the understatement of the year. The vampiric species she's modeled after isn't a bat, but a lamprey or leech.
  • Oxymoronic Being: She is a vampire...yet she is also a valkyrie. So she is at the same time a holy and unholy creature.
  • Parasol of Prettiness: As part of her Elegant Gothic Lolita attire, she carries a parasol.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: When Demiurge discovers Ainz took Shalltear with him to the Dwarven Kingdoms, his immediate assumption is their master desires genocide of the dwarves. He honestly sees her as nothing more than a When All You Have Is a Hammer... solution. Though contemptuous of her subtlety, he clearly has respect for her vast destructive capacity.
  • Power Is Sexy: Momonga's fear aura puts her underwear in an emergency situation.
  • Pride Before a Fall: As an immortal undead with vast abilities min-maxed into an incredible combatant she's understandably quite arrogant. However, her foolish pride causes her to fail a relatively simple mission several times over and causes her to fatally underestimate Ainz when mind controlled.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her ponytail is about as long as her body.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: She dresses in a black and red gothic lolita dress.
  • Red Baron: "The Bloody Valkyrie"
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Her bloody red eyes denote her cruel, bloodthirsty nature.
  • Revive Kills Zombie: She is harmed by healing potions.
  • Running Gag: In the light novel, many characters comment on Shalltear's "generous" bust unknowing that it only appears big because she pads it heavily. The first instance was when Momonga summoned the Guardians for the first time; Aura noted that Shalltear used her Gate spell rather than walk as the latter would mess up her pads.
  • Skewed Priorities: Was worried more about her chest than the fact that she was dead, revived, and naked in front of everybody at Nazarick.
  • Technical Virgin: While she's never had sex with a man, she does have a record of violating her vampire brides, who are women.
  • Teleporters and Transporters: Her Gate spell is often used to magically transfer large quantities of material or small armies across vast distances. She takes tremendous pride how Momonga values her ability to cast it and the vast Mundane Utility it provides (like being able to quickly cross long distances without displacing her breast pads).
  • Too Kinky to Torture: When Ainz decides to nominally punish her in order to let her overcome her guilt about fighting him before (and partially to avoid sitting on a distinctly uncomfortable-looking throne of bones without offending its maker), he orders her to be his chair. She considered this a reward and sent Albedo into a jealous fit.
  • Undying Loyalty: As much as she loves and is loyal to Ainz, her taunts during her fight with Ainz hint that she is ultimately more loyal to her creator Peroroncino and holds him in higher regard than she does Ainz. Albedo doesn't include her in her secret "Seek and Destroy the other Supreme Beings" task force for this reason.
    • Though her loyalty to Ainz is still quite impressive as well. When she realized that she had fought him while being mind-controlled, she fell into a deep depression.
  • Unlimited Wardrobe: While she mostly wears her gothic lolita dress, it's said that she has a very extensive selection of outfits, all meant as fetish appeal for her creator Peroroncino.
  • Valkyries: Turns out she's vampire who's also a Holy Valkyrie.
  • Vampires Are Sex Gods: Played with. She wants to be seen as one, but being created by a guy with a fetish for underage anime girls, her feminine assets are... lacking to say the least compared to her rival for Ainz's love, Albedo. This is why she pads her bra quite copiously. Still, she is seemingly quite cute and pretty, but only so long as she doesn't reveal what she really looks like.
  • Verbal Tic: She has the accent of a Yoshiwara geisha, subsituting "arinsu" for various forms of aru, arimasu, iru, and imasu. This also includes avoidance of desu and freely ending sentences with a Japanese particle.
  • Villainous Breakdown: During her battle with Ainz she's initially both condescending and completely confident in her victory. Every time he out plays her she has an Oh, Crap! moment and loses her composure a little more. Eventually she ends up going berserk out of pure desperation.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds:
    • With Aura, to the point of sibling rivalry. Ainz notes that Shalltear's and Aura's creators, who were siblings, would often bicker in the same fashion. Sebas at first believes that they have a bad relationship due to this, but Shalltear assures they don´t have such bad relationship.
    • With Albedo when it comes to Ainz's affection. The two will spend hours arguing, threatening, and insulting each other over who would make a better wife for him. However the pair also realize he's a tough nut to crack and willingly trade information about sex appeal or advances that failed to capture Ainz's attention.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss:
    • Was designed to be this in the YGGDRASIL MMO. Shalltear compensates the weaknesses of being undead, with usage of holy magic. The combination of possessing natural resistance to death/unholy, while possessing a means to neutralize life/holy used against her, grants Shalltear no weakness that can be easily exploited. Vampire abilities made her a Flunky Boss who could turn fallen enemies into loyal puppets. She has a weapon to convert damage she inflicted on opponents into a Healing Factor that made her a Damage-Sponge Boss. Magic Knight abilities gave her the most versatile of physical and magical options. And to just make it all the more harder: she has a single use item Auto-Revive, meaning you have to immediately defeat her a second time. Welcome to the third floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick, bitch.
    • For the Great Tomb of Nazarick, if a raid party was strong enough to overcome Shalltear, said invasion force is not entirely harmless and warranted the guild's full attention to neutralize. Particularly since it means she was defeated twice.
    • Interestingly, she also becomes one for Ainz in the New World after being mind-controlled.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: A cruel, evil white-haired vampire.
  • Why Won't You Die?: Boy oh boy... She has a Regeneration spell, can reverse time to undo the damage done by a powerful attack, and her lance has a Life Drain effect. And if that wasn't hard enough to break through, after you kill her, you have to do it all over again because she has a resurrection item!
  • Yandere: Her confrontations with Albedo over which of them will be Momonga's "legal wife" can get really... intense.
  • You Have Failed Me: Played with. When one of her minions walks into a bear trap, she lets it slide because neither she nor the minion have the ability to detect traps. The minion walks into a pitfall, which annoys her more, especially since Shalltear didn't see it coming either. She makes it clear that any more stupid blunders will be punished with death, however.

    Demiurge 

Demiurge

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/demiurge_databook_01.png
Voiced by: Masayuki Katou (Japanese), Jeff Johnson (English)

Demiurge is Floor Guardian to the 7th Floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick and Commander of NPC Defenses. To his master, comrades, and equals within the Great Tomb: he is a polite, helpful Gentleman and a Scholar who does everything he can to assist them in achieving their goals. To everyone else he is a scheming, Made of Evil sadist who enjoys inflicting cruelty and misery simply for the sake of evil itself. The whole of Nazarick respects his vast intellect and skill at executing plans, which are considered second only to the infallible Momonga, making him a go to person for advice. He was created by Ulbert Alain Odle to be the ultimate example of Demon Lords and Archdevils.


  • All According to Plan: When it looks like he's losing, he's actually still winning.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Just look at all of the villain tropes in his entry. Justified since his creator wanted him to be the ultimate example of a devil. Demiurge was harmless when he was a mere videogame NPC, but now that he's a real sentient demon in the New World...
  • Chessmaster Sidekick: What's interesting is that Demiurge is completely unaware that he is one. He thinks all of his actions are merely him fulfilling Ainz's grand (and totally non-existent) plans. He's a chessmaster who thinks he's a pawn.
    • While many of the achievements that Demiurge accredits to Ainz's infinite genius were due to unwitting chance or lucky opportunities, from an outside prospective they're all warranted. Ainz defeated the most powerful Floor Guardian singled handed, when Demiurge believed there was no way for him to succeed. He tricked the Baharuth Empire into becoming a vassal state of Nazarick in a mere three days with almost no bloodshed, when Demiurge believed it would require several months of violent subterfuge. He proved Shalltear was capable of intricate thinking and controlling her bloodlust, aiding in making the Dwarf Kingdom allies of Nazarick, when Demiurge thought she was only useful for senseless destruction. Ainz constantly makes Demiurge realize he's wrong on multiple occasions; thus fueling a genius intellect like Demiurge to consider himself vastly inferior.
  • Compelling Voice: Can force lower-level listeners to obey his voice. To those immune, it just makes his voice sound more pleasant.
  • Complexity Addiction: Part of the reason he believes Ainz is so much smarter than him is because all of Demiurge's plans are overly complicated schemes that will take years to complete, so even Ainz's random bumbling inevitably ends up achieving many of Demiurge's endless planned goals way ahead of his own over the top schedule.
  • Control Freak: Subtly revealed when the story switches to his point of view. He is tremendously annoyed by individuals who are resistant to his mind reading (with the sole exception of Ainz). He also dislikes being placed in scenarios he cannot predict the outcome or manipulate to his advantage. Incidentally it's Albedo who constantly presses these buttons.
  • Deal with the Devil: How he interacts with everyone native to the New World.
  • Double Meaning: Phrases his statements to make the listener feel at ease, even when it's a topic they dislike, but avoids lying.
  • Entertainingly Wrong:
    • Because he unfailingly believes Momonga is an infallible mastermind, Demiurge always interprets something his master says, as intricate parts to a greater scheme that no one else except the Overlord could truly comprehend. Yet often times, what Momonga wanted was nowhere near that complex or requires profound foresight to unravel.
    • On the flip side: everyone he deals with (including Momonga), tend to completely misread Demiurge's full intentions because the Floor Guardian likes using word games and double meanings to conceal the truth without outright lying. Sometimes it occurs without meaning to, because that mannerism is second nature to him.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • Briefly considers explaining to the innocent Mare why Albedo and Shalltear are fighting over giving Ainz an heir, but rejects it.
    • Despite his opinion about humans and what he's willing to put them through for his amusement, even he thinks that feeding children foie gras would be too much and too rough for his standards.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: A minor example occurs when he (as Jaldabaoth) "fights" Blue Rose. When Gagaran and Tia attempt to flee, Demiurge hits them with a fire spell, holding back to avoid killing them. The problem is that he uses the vastly more powerful Evileye as a gauge of their strength. Upon roasting Gagaran and Tia to a crisp, he callously asks Evileye why she would even bother adventuring with people who are so much weaker than she is. As the pragmatic monster he is, Demiurge apparently considers the worth of a companion by their strength alone - what is that silly thing people call "friendship" anyways?
  • Faux Affably Evil: His impeccable manners right after he killed her comrades make Evileye even more enraged.
  • For Science!: Very inquisitive. Loves to apply his own version of The Scientific Method on everything.
  • For the Evulz: While some of his "experiments" on the "livestock" are actually done for practical purposes, a lot of the horrible things he does to them, up to and including forcing parents to give up their own children to be eaten by the other "livestock", are done for no other reason than because he thinks it's fun.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Almost always seen wearing a pair of glasses. The "Zero Soul" part is an understatement, considering he was designed to be the ultimate example of an evil demon and boasts a Karma of -500 (very evil).
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Although they see him as a true companion, none of the other denizens of Nazarick like him, and actually dread going to him for advice or aid of any kind. Sebas in particular can't stand him even though Sebas is able to get along with the other 'Evil' denizens of Nazarick like Shalltear.
  • Friendly Rivalry: He and Albedo don't see eye to eye when it comes to the well being of Ainz, and the two come into conflict over who's ideas are better. It isn't a secret that he covets Albedo's position of Overseer and second in command, not for personal gain, but to most efficiently carry out Ainz's will.
  • Game Face: Although he does not display it often, he does have a "true form", two specifically. Oddly enough for such a vile and monstrous being, his first transformation is almost comical-looking, especially the superposition of the small glasses on a wide face that looks rather like a lizard's or a tree frog's. The second has yet to be shown, but is mentioned by Ainz to be the image of manliness.
  • Hellfire: As a powerful demon, he's able to conjure black flames at will.
  • Hellhole Prison: He's been keeping "livestock" in this sort of environment, and loves to implement ways of making it even more hellish.
  • Human Resources: Momonga is absolutely oblivious to the fact that Demiurge has been raising a population of humans for experimentation, body parts harvesting, meaningless torture, and snacks for Nazarick creatures that find them tasty. Momonga incorrectly believes the "livestock" Demiurge has been mentioning from time to time, are unintelligent beasts. It's not that Demiurge has been lying to his master: Momonga simply has yet to fully comprehend how cruel and evil the lieutenant is. It's also implied that Demiurge, in his usual manner of overestimating his master's evil and intelligence, believes that Momonga is aware that his livestock are humans and is simply dehumanizing them by calling them sheep. Demiurge doesn't realize that Momonga refers to them as sheep because he really believes they are sheep.
  • The Lancer: He is one to Albedo. Inner monologue reveals he is very annoyed by Albedo's unprofessional behavior and jealous she holds the position of Overseer. While he generally obeys her orders without open resistance, he prefers to communicate directly with Ainz and avoid dealing with her whenever possible. Albedo seems to enjoy playing "mind games" with him, which he finds exasperating and a complete waste of his time. However when the two work together when Ainz assigns them a common task, they can create the most complex schemes possible.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Has some animalisitic traits at all times, like his tail, pupils and teeth. His Aspect of the Devil ability also allows him to replace a certain number of his body parts with demonic, often animalistic ones, such as bat wings, a frog head, 8 limbs like a spider, beastly claws, and so forth.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: His skills aside from his Hellfire consist of fun stuff like enlarging and hardening his limbs and sprouting wings.
  • Mad Artist: Living subjects in suffering, torn body parts, and screaming souls are his favorite mediums.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: In his humanoid form.
  • Mind Manipulation: Possess a wide range of mind control abilities.
  • Mind Reading: He is able to read the surface thoughts of every denizen in the Great Tomb, with the exception of Ainz and Albedo. Not being able to detect Ainz's thoughts is considered normal, but the inability to know what Albedo is thinking generates suspicion.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: His eyes appear to be crystalline, too.
  • Non-Indicative Name: "Demiurge" usually refers to divine world-creators while Demiurge here is a demon. Though, in Gnosticism, the Demiurge is considered as malevolent.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: Among the Floor Guardians, Demiurge is not a very strong combatant since his specialty is strategy. Nonetheless, he's still level 100 in a world where even an effectively level 30 character is considered a legendary being. The unlucky New Worlders who face him are completely outclassed and think he's even stronger than the Demon Gods of legend.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: When Jircniv enters Nazarick for a state visit, Demiurge is in his toad form, so the Emperor dismisses him as a stupid creature that just happens to have a Compelling Voice.
  • Odd Friendship: He's on incredibly good terms with Mare and considers him an apprentice of sorts. Demiurge is impressed that Mare not only possesses sharp intellect, but hides that intelligence behind a super shy exterior. This is in sharp contrast to his opinion of other Guardians: he thinks Albedo is insane (which isn't exactly incorrect), considers Shalltear a loose cannon (again, not wrong), believes Cocytus is Dumb Muscle (while not strictly correct, Cocytus is prone to Honor Before Reason), and can't get over how Sebas is Stupid Good (his and Sebas' creators were often at odds with each other).
  • One-Winged Angel: Deimurge fakes this when he attacks the Holy Kingdom in his Jaldabaoth guise. When he lets himself be slammed into a building, he switches places with his demon servant Wrath under the cover of the rubble. This terrifies the Holy Kingdom's forces, since Wrath (who resembles a Balrog) looks much more demonic and intimidating than Demiurge. Wrath is actually weaker than Demiurge since he's only level 80 compared to Demiurge's 100, but that still makes him much stronger than anything the Holy Kingdom could throw at him.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: A self-inflicted case where he truly believes himself outclassed by Ainz in the brains department. Case in point: after the Emperor's visit to Nazarick, Demiurge was able to correctly predict Jircniv's every response, and planned for a long and bloody war of attrition to finally bring the Empire under Nazarick's control. So when Ainz completely decimates the Royal army then randomly shows up in the Empire to singlehandedly prove he can't be destroyed (he was only there to basically advertise his new Adventurer's Guild and though killing a troll would be good publicity), prompting Jircniv to immediately surrender in a few days, Demiurge is suitably impressed by his master's far greater efficiency.
  • Pointy Ears: His ears are long and pointy.
  • Poison-and-Cure Gambit: He appears to insinuate this occurred during the banquet Nazarick provided the Dwarven Kingdom. Ainz was completely oblivious of the plot, so it would be another example of Demiurge doing something insidiously ingenious, under the impression it was his master's original idea in the first place.
  • Poisonous Friend: Though he's wholly loyal to Momonga, he's also way more evil and cunning than him (though neither is aware of it). It's also Demiurge's fault that Momonga's plan to locate fellow YGGDRASIL players by making Nazarick famous in the New World was derailed into world conquest, and from that point on, absolutely everything Momonga says or does is interpreted by Demiurge to be in service of that plan, no matter how innocent Momonga's actual intentions were. He can be partially blamed for a few of Momonga's most evil moments, such as the massacre of the Workers.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Demiurge is actually a horrifying inversion of the trope. On the clock and under the direction of accomplishing the goals of Ainz or Nazerick, he only engages in Pragmatic Villainy and never does anything more than necessary to get the job done. Off the clock he's a sadistic monster that loves the sound of screaming with almost no line he won't cross for the sake of his entertainment.
  • Red Baron: "Creator Of Blazing Inferno"
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: A villainous example, with his perception of "what's right" being "ensuring the safety of Momonga at all costs". Unlike most of the other guardians, who will unwaveringly obey Momonga no matter what, Demiurge may disobey his master's orders if he feels that Momonga is putting himself into unnecessary danger. He says that he doesn't even care if Momonga punishes or even kills him for his disobedience, as the safety of the Supreme Beings must come above his own.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: He will happily describe the horrible agony he is going to inflict on those unfortunate enough to fall into his grasp, and proudly declare that he will turn an entire nation into a suffering pit, all while never once raising his voice or breaking his calm and even cadence.
  • The Starscream: Subverted, despite being an evil schemer, he really does work solely for Nazarick and to further Ainz' goals (or rather what he assumes Ainz' goals are).
  • The Strategist: Well he was the Commander of the NPC Defenses in Yggdrasil.
  • Verbal Tic: Demiurge develops one, adding random words to the end of his sentences.
  • Will Not Tell a Lie: This always applies to Momonga and the other Floor Guardians, though he has a habit of being Metaphorically True. For one thing, he doesn't see fit to correct Momonga whenever Momonga assumes that Demiurge's "livestock" are non-sentient beasts like Chimeras.
  • You Are a Credit to Your Race: While Demiurge believes that Humans Are Insects or toys for amusement he isn't flat out rascist like the other NPCs in the Tomb of Nazerick and isn't above complimenting anyone if they show some ability human or otherwise. For instance, while he completely saw through Emperor Jircniv's attempts to plot against Nazerick, he did mention that the Emperor was smarter than average and there was really no reason to mention that fact.

    Cocytus 

Cocytus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cocytus_databook_01.png
Voiced by: Kenta Miyake (Japanese), Bryan Massey (English)

Cocytus is Floor Guardian to the 5th Floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. While absolutely loyal to his master and comrades, Cocytus' actions are not guided by the ideals of good or ambitions of evil. The wielder of 21 weapons and a Code of Honour to become the ultimate soldier, he enjoys the thrill of war and challenging Worthy Opponents on the battlefield. Created by Takemikazuchi, he is an Insectoid with Master Swordsman specifications and multiple abilities of An Ice Person.


  • Affably Evil: He is very respectful towards both comrades and enemies. Lampshaded by Zenberu, who is surprised that he is a nice guy, after Cocytus made two ice pillars and claims that he will only kill the lizardmen that cross beyond them.
  • An Ice Person: Can produce ice effects.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: He is left in charge of the Lizardmen after he beat their champions.
  • Apologetic Attacker: During his battle with the Lizardmen, he repeatedly apologizes before attacking them or for having so many unfair advantages over them before dealing the killing blow.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: He has many limbs and a very insect-like face with antlion-like mandibles.
  • Blood Knight: He loves a good fight, but he is more of a Spirited Competitor since he is not above praising his foes.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: In episode 2, when Demiurge brings up the possibility of Momonga having an heir, Cocytus gets really excited and says he would put the kid on his shoulder. He also would like to be an Honorary Uncle.
  • Covert Pervert: While first introduced in the non-canon Ple Ple Pleiades skits, this was later confirmed official in Volume 11, when Cocytus requested Ainz to punish him the same way Shalltear was for her mind controlled disobedience: being used as a chair.
  • Explaining Your Power to the Enemy: Cocytus states exactly what advantages he has over the Lizardmen during their fight simply out of polite courtesy. After all, what use is the information to the Lizardmen if they have no means of countering it.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite being fanatically loyal and obedient to Ainz, he asks that the Lizardmen be spared instead of exterminated as ordered. Bringing up those Hidden Depths was Ainz' goal in the first place, and he's even happier when Cocytus starts anticipating Ainz' commands without prompting.
  • Ironic Fear: In the non-canon Ple Ple Pleiades skits, the massive insectoid Cocytus is revealed to be afraid of bugs. Entoma uses this fear to bully him.
  • Let's Fight Like Gentlemen: Cocytus erects two ice pillars before confronting the Lizardman and states that only those prepared to die should cross beyond them, he keeps his word and only fights those who cross the pillars. He also doesn't interfere with Zaryusu and Shasryu as they talk about fighting him to the bitter end, stating that he is not so boorish as to deny the two brothers a chance to say their final goodbyes. Cocytus even apologizes for the fact that he's not able to provide a fair fight to his enemies because of the vast difference in their strengths.
  • Meaningful Name: In Classical Mythology, Cocytus is an ice-cold river of Hell. He uses ice powers.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Can equip four out of twenty-one weapons at the same time.
  • Multi-Melee Master: He has an arsenal of 21 weapons.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: True Neutral Four-armed reptile-bug cryomancer honorable duelist.
  • Noble Demon: His Alignment is +50, which is on the good side of 'Neutral'. He is fiercely loyal to Momonga, lacks the more xenophobic attitudes of his peers, and praises the courage and skill of his opponents even if they are vastly weaker than him.
  • My Name Is Inigo Montoya: Inverted. He never formally introduced himself to the Lizardmen warriors that he fought, as they already knew who he was. Rather, he asked for the names of the final two Lizardmen champions (Zaryusu and Shasryu) that he was about to kill, then stating that he will remember their names as valiant warriors.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: Contrary to what it's Romanization would have you believe, his name is pronounced as Koh-kyou-tus.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Although we don't know much about his race per se, Cocytus certainly fits the bill personality-wise, so maybe just a "proud warrior guy".
  • Power Nullifier: He can temporarily nullify attacks made by weapons with weak magic power.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: He often speaks like this in Momonga's presence. In the light novel he. speaks. in. one. word. sentences.
  • Red Baron: "Ruler Of Glaciers"
  • Samurai: His chitin is shaped after Samurai armor, and his personality and mode of thinking is very much that of a samurai.
  • Shout-Out: In concept, he is very similar to an Ice Devil/Gelugon from Dungeons & Dragons, an insect-like humanoid with a long tail that controls ice (only Cocytus has more arms). Given all the other similarities between YGGDRASIL and D&D, this may not be a coincidence.
  • Tragic Keepsake / It Was a Gift: His most prized sword, which he will only use against a Worthy Opponent, was given to him by his creator Takemikazuchi as a farewell gift before he logged out for the last time.
  • Worthy Opponent: Considers the Lizardmen brothers as this. He respects their valor as fellow warriors enough to request to Ainz that they be resurrected instead of being turned into undead soldiers.

    Aura Bella Fiora 

Aura Bella Fiora

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aura_0.png
Voiced by: Emiri Katou (Japanese), Jill Harris (English)

Co-Guardian to the 6th Floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick; a position she jointly shares with her Half Identical Twin. Aura is an outgoing and adventurous Tomboy with a Girly Streak who enjoys excitement. Though physically weaker than her brother, she is the dominant sibling and pushes him to be more assertive. A dark elf tailored with The Beastmaster and Nature Hero specializations that was created by Bukubukuchagama.


  • Bifauxnen: Dresses and acts male.
  • The Beast Master: Her job entails taming and controlling monsters for the guild.
  • Big Sister Bully: Her personality completely dominates her brother Mare. The reason they are like this is because their creator Bukubukuchagama was one to her own younger brother Peroroncino and believed this was an ideal sibling relationship.
  • Boyish Short Hair: She has short hair that makes her look even more like a boy.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Albedo and Shalltear often include Aura in their secret girl-to-girl conversations to seduce Ainz. She always sees herself as the Only Sane Woman during these talks, and fails to realize they want her input as a potential harem member.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: Dark skin and blonde hair.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Completely subverted: her first instinct on seeing interesting new creatures like Hamsuke or an obese frost dragon is to skin them and break them down for crafting ingredients if she doesn't deem them powerful enough to be useful to Nazarick.
  • Half-Identical Twins: Aura is a girl, her twin Mare is a boy. Curiously, they both dress like their opposite gender.
  • Idiot Hair: The cowlick that stands rather prominently atop her head.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Is rather reckless in battle.
  • Older Than She Looks: Looks like a kid but is over 70 years old. By her race's standards, she probably looks her age as she commented early on that she still has lots of time to develop.
  • Only Sane Woman: Demiurge's opinion of her, among the three female Guardians. It also occurs when Albedo assembles the trio for special meetings on how they can win Ainz's love or increase their sex appeal.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Aura dresses, looks and acts like a boy, while her twin brother Mare looks and acts girly in every way, even wearing a skirt.
  • Not So Above It All: She's not above using her childlike appearance and personality to get special favors from Ainz, such as sitting in his lap like a young niece or daughter. She shows jealously whenever Albedo and Shalltear want the same treatment.
  • Pointy Ears: As typical with elves, Aura has long, pointy ears.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Aura is brash, confident and tomboyish, while Mare is shy, insecure and dresses like a girl.
  • Precocious Crush: Though she plays it off when around Albedo and Shalltear, she is secretly smitten by Ainz's leadership and kindness.
  • Red Baron: "Renowned Trainer With An Indomitable Will"
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Mare's Blue Oni, reflected in the color of their clothes. As mentioned in Polar Opposite Twins, Aura is much more assertive than the shy Mare.
  • Shared Unusual Trait: Her left eye is blue and her right eye is green. Her twin Mare has the same eye colors but reversed. Characters who know a bit about elves find this vaguely familiar but can't remember why. It's not until volume nine that we learn that the elf king and his descendants apparently all have heterochromia as well, which means that the twins at least look like elven royalty, though not of the right subspecies.
  • Token Human: In the world of Yggdrasil, "humans" include elves, dwarves, and the like (including the obvious humans), then demi-humans (orcs and beast-people) and finally completely inhuman beings. Thus, she is one of the few "humans" out of an entire tomb of beings of the "monster" categorization. This has an actual effect, too; only "monsters" can gain racial levels, so her levels are invested in class skills instead.
  • Tomboy: She dresses in boy's clothes and behaves with more confidence than her brother.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Shalltear. Ainz notes that Shalltear's and Aura's creators, who were siblings, would often bicker in the same fashion.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Despite being overall more confident and boyish than Mare, she is nevertheless deathly afraid of insects and will invariably make her brother deal with the various insectoids of Nazarick in her stead.

    Mare Bello Fiore 

Mare Bello Fiore

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mare_1.png
Voiced by: Yumi Uchiyama (Japanese), Megan Shipman (English)

Co-Guardian to the 6th Floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick; a position he jointly shares with his Half Identical Twin. Mare is a timid and insecure Wholesome Crossdresser who prefers boring tranquility. Though physically stronger than his sister, he is the submissive sibling and obeys her without question. A dark elf tailored with spell casting Druid specializations and suspiciously concealed stats of The Brute that was created by Bukubukuchagama.


  • Apologetic Attacker: Goes with the whole "meek and shy" aspect of his personality. Don't let it fool you, though. His attacks are no less lethal.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Meek, shy, and almost completely dominated by his sister, Aura, but he's the stronger of the two twins, and whether by druid magic or physical combat, he can and will kill you if the situation calls for it.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Going by just his cowardly demeanor and his stuttering speech, you'd never guess that this kid could so much as hurt a fly, let alone crush a man's head like a rotten fruit. And physical attack is his weaker stat.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Dark skin and blonde hair.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: He can move enough soil around to alter a landscape, and did, under Momonga's orders to hide Nazarick.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: While most if not every New Worlder figures out that Aura is female, few of them realize Mare is male.
  • Elfeminate: As a joke from his programmers, Mare dresses and looks like a girl, while his twin sister, Aura dresses like a boy.
  • The Engineer: His ability to shape landscape and stone makes him the ideal person to construct fortresses and battlefield traps. That such creations can look environmentally natural, and thus undetectable to low level magic or the naked eye, boosts his work Up to Eleven.
  • Green Thumb: His druid magic allows him to weaponize plants and seeds, as a nosy, and envious adventurer from Re-Estize found out, the hard way.
  • Half-Identical Twins: Mare is a boy, his twin Aura is a girl. Curiously, they both dress like their opposite gender.
  • Magic Knight: A druid specialized in Earth magic, but if need be he will bash your brains out with that staff of his.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Being the opposite number of the tomboyish Aura, he dresses, looks and behaves like a Girly Girl despite being a boy.
  • Master of All: Like Shalltear, he has very high stats in all domains.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: When the leader of The Eight Fingers drug peddling division, a former high-class prostitute, tried to seduce him (so she could use a deadly poison on him) he was completely uninterested. Note: She approached him completely naked.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: His extreme submissive personality hides a very inquisitive mind. He shows tactical ingenuity (it was his idea to hide the Great Tomb with landscape) and will ask revealing questions to things he wants to clarify. Demiurge of all people doesn't mind sharing his plans with Mare, because he likes his input.
  • Older Than He Looks: At over 70 years old, he's still a kid the way elves age.
  • Otokonoko Genre: His creator apparently was a fan of this, because when he was asked why he dresses like a girl, his answer was along the lines of "Something about 'Otoko no ko'..."
  • Person of Mass Destruction: The sidestory "Emissary of the King" reveals that his abilities are only a few steps below Shalltear and that he specializes in devastating area attacks.
  • Pointy Ears: As typical with elves, Mare has long, pointy ears. As expected of his more submissive and quiet demeanor his droop downward as opposed to his sister's upward curve.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Mare is shy, insecure and dresses like a girl, while Aura is brash, confident and tomboyish.
  • Red Baron: "Unreliable Envoy Of Nature"
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Aura's Red Oni, reflected in the color of their clothes. As mentioned in Polar Opposite Twins, his sister Aura is much more assertive than Mare, who is a bit shy.
  • Security Blanket: He constantly clutches his staff and divine item, Shadow of YGGDRASIL, as such an object.
  • Shared Unusual Trait: His right eye is blue and his left eye is green. His twin Aura has the same eye colors but reversed. Characters who know a bit about elves find this vaguely familiar but can't remember why. It's not until volume nine that we learn that the elf king and his descendants apparently all have heterochromia as well, which means that the twins at least look like elven royalty, though not of the right subspecies.
  • Simple Staff: His weapon looks like a very basic, gnarled wooden staff, but is actually a Divine item known as the "Shadow of Yggdrasil".
  • Super Strength: Despite being a waifish boy, his stats from being an Boss NPC gives him the physical strength necessary that one swing of his staff is enough to cave in a man's skull, or break a woman's leg and then drag her off by the hair without apparent effort.
  • Token Human: See Aura's similar description for elaboration. The short of it is that "humans" include elves, and this has the actual effect of denying Mare from taking racial levels like the rest of his peers (or stopping him from taking bad levels, according to pro-humanoid opinions before the founding of Ainz Ooal Gown proved the opposite).
  • Undying Loyalty: To Bukubukuchagama, as revealed in volume 8. She is the only being he holds in higher regard over Ainz.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Was designed to dress like a girl despite being a boy to contrast his sister, for a given measure of "wholesome" since he is on the "evil" side.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: He wears white thigh-high stockings.

    Victim 

Victim

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/victim.png
Voiced by: Nao Touyama (Japanese), Maria Acevedo (English)

Victim is Floor Guardian to the 8th Floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. Though the weakest among his fellow Guardians (a mere level 35), he is held in high regard and awe by them, for Victim remained undefeated when a 1500 player raid party almost conquered Nazarick. He commands the deadliest level of the dungeon, a region where There Is No Kill Like Overkill, but is burdened with the fact that if the 8th Floor is successfully breeched by an invading force, the Great Tomb of Nazarick is likely doomed to fall. An angel tailored to inflict Standard Status Effects, whose Supreme Being creator has yet to be revealed.


  • Action Bomb: Though unusually, it seems that his self-destruction does not cause damage, but instead inflicts enemies with a plethora of nasty debuffs.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: What ends up happening to enemies when he kills himself.
  • Dissonant Serenity: He is completely at peace with the fact that his reason for existing is killing himself, and says things like "I was born to die" like it's a completely normal thing to say.
  • Fetus Terrible: Just look at him.
  • Indy Ploy: Victim's creation. He was conceived during the infamous raid that almost destroyed the Great Tomb, as the opposing players breeched the 7th Floor. While ultimately ingenious, there wasn't real expectation for it to work and the Supreme Beings were simultaneously making preparations for their Final Boss battle.
  • Lethal Joke Character: Say you're part of a raid group invading the Great Tomb. You have beaten floors 1 to 7, so you are well on your way to reaching the lich lord himself. You have already defeated powerful vampires, demons and archdemons, undead monstrosities and other abominations. What horrors could the dreaded 8th floor have in store for you? What formidable being could prove worthy of being its guardian..? ...a sickly level 35 floating fetus with next to no offensive skills. "Is this some kind of freaking joke?!" would probably be your reaction, shortly before finding out that Victim's purpose is not to fight you...
  • Meaningful Name: With a name like Victim, it's not shocking that his purpose is being an Action Bomb.
  • Our Angels Are Different: Is specifically referenced as an angel by Sebas Tian in volume 6.
  • Red Baron: "Sacrificial Fetus"
  • Simple, yet Awesome: Unlike other Guardians, he isn't an incredible warrior or powerful caster. Victim doesn't have an intricate strategy to defeat invaders. He simply initiates a Suicide Attack that disables all enemies on the entire 8th Floor. This works well for several reasons. The other Guardians may be powerful, but in the end their usefulness is limited against an entire group of similarly leveled and geared players. Victim gets around this issue by crippling every enemy on his floor at once to leave them open to a Zerg Rush by the powerful enemies encountered en masse on his floor. His low level has a chance of luring enemies into mistaking him for a "flavor" NPC similar to the Area Guardians instead of an actual threat, and this same low level also means that he can be resurrected with minimal expense compared to a level 100 NPC.
  • Starfish Language: The way he talks is very weird, to say the least. Translators have taken random phrases (typically memes) and typed them in backwards to indicate his dialogue. Ainz muses that he might be speaking the language of actual angels, but since his speech is automatically translated there's no real way to find out. The anime renders it as incredibly fast pace gibberish with the automatic translation voice layered on top.
  • Taking You with Me: Was designed specifically for this. It's the reason a massive attack of 1500+ people on the tomb failed, miserably, on the 8th floor.
  • True Neutral: invoked Close enough. He has a morality score of 1, which is basically the closest to purely neutral you can get.
  • Thanatos Gambit: Ainz tells him outright that in the event of an emergency he might kill Victim himself to neutralize intruders or even prevent them from fleeing. He's apologetic about this, but Victim doesn't mind. That said, his death wouldn't last long anyway.
  • Ugly Cute: Especially in the anime, where his translated voice is very cute and childlike.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: A villainous example, as his sacrifice prevents heroic adventurers from breeching the final levels of the Great Tomb. Successfully surmounting his floor and the restrictions imposed by his death, means an invader can defeat Nazarick.

    Gargantua 

Gargantua

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gargantua.png
Guardian of the 4th floor. It is an incredibly powerful construct who apparently lacks any personality or free will. Unlike many of the other denizens of Nazarick, it is not a custom character created by a Supreme Being, but was a bonus reward from guild headquarters (the game developers). It is usually dormant at the bottom of a lake.
  • The Brute: Even stronger than Shalltear (the most min-maxed Guardian) but is almost totally mindless.
  • Golem: It's an artificial construct powered by magic.
  • The Needless: As an artifical construct, it needs no nourishment or rest.
  • Red Baron: "Strategic Siege Golem"
  • Super Strength: Gargantua is introduced in volume 4 hurling a huge boulder a long distance.

Area Guardians

Area Guardians are a select group of Non Player Characters who control locations of vital value or tactical importance in the Great Tomb of Nazarick. They originally served as sub-bosses in the Yggdrasil MMO, and in layman terms, can be considered like lesser Floor Guardians who command a smaller region. The zone an Area Guardian controls is an independent microcosm within the surrounding larger territory of a Floor Guardian. When outside their zone, an Area Guardian is subordinate to the commanding Floor Guardian. Inside their zone, an Area Guardian only answers to Ainz and Albedo, possessing the right to disregard a Floor Guardian's orders if it conflicts with the Area Guardian's purpose. Certain individuals, such as Pandora's Actor, are not tied to the Floor system at all and enjoy special independence from Nazarick's chain of command.
    Pandora's Actor 

Pandora's Actor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pandoras_actor.png
Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese), Eric Vale (English)

Area Guardian and Financial Manager of the Treasury to the Great Tomb of Nazarick. He is an eccentric individual who, much to his creator's embarrassment, is an overactive Large Ham. His primary duties involve maintaining monetary upkeep of the Great Tomb and tracking of its material inventory. This role notably puts him outside of Albedo's usual chain of command, with the luxury of directly answering to Momonga. A doppelganger with Master of All specializations, achieved through Shapeshifting as any of the Supreme Beings, that was created by Momonga.


  • Adolf Hitlarious: The military uniform coupled with his tendency to break out into Gratuitous German leads to this. Momonga more or less admits he was going through an "Edgelord" phase when he created him.
  • Almighty Janitor: He's at the level cap just like the floor guardians and has such varied and flexible abilities that he would provide amazing support to anyone he was assigned to work with. Ainz considers him possibly the most potentially useful NPC in Nazarick, but he sees little use apart from guarding the treasure room. Though Shalltear's brainwashing has Ainz move him out to the throne room for further use and eventually has him act as a body double.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Inverted. Ainz is incredibly mortified by the fact he ever thought making someone with such Large Ham and Chuunibyou tendencies was cool, and wishes his "son" would reign it in so as not to constantly display Ainz's previous shameful tastes.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: In spite of his Large Ham tendencies, he is the Guild Treasurer and Quartermaster, is the only one who criticises Ainz (and gets away with it because Ainz finds it a change from everyone else who worship the ground he walks on) and Albedo considers him as smart as herself and Demiurge, which combined with his Undying Loyalty to Ainz is enough for her to invite him into her conspiracy.
  • Comically Missing the Point: In the Pure Pure Pleiades episode focusing on him, Shizu attempts to find something for him to eat (while he's disguised as an ordinary cat). As a doppelganger he can eat anything and has no preferences or dislikes up to being willing to eat live insects, but Shizu eventually puts a can of cat food in front of him. Unopened. He eats the entire thing just like that. Nobody considers this odd.
  • Extreme Omnivore: He's capable of eating anything, but from the way he speaks it sounds like he's one of the Nazarick residents who doesn't normally eat anything and gets by on his Ring of Sustenance.
  • Gratuitous German: He occasionally lapses into German. Momonga (who nowadays finds this quirk to be ridiculous and out of place) implores him to stop it.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: All of the female NPCs are disgusted how Pandora acts overtly friendly around them. They either stare at him with eyes of disgust or wordlessly make a negative sound.
  • Honest Advisor: While its accepted all denizens of Nazarick are impossibly loyal to Momonga, Pandora's Actor is the one he implicitly trusts beyond all others. He is more honest with Pandora than any of the other NPCs, and asks him questions he doesn't want answered with fawning bias.
  • The Jester: An untraditional one, but he fills this role both by virtue of playing Plucky Comic Relief and being the only one allowed to criticize Momonga's plans (since Momonga knows that, of all the Non Player Characters, he is the one least likely to betray him or desert him, no matter what).
  • Large Ham: With a penchant for melodramatic gestures and a No Indoor Voice that embarrasses Ainz to no end, Pandora's Actor is anything but subtle when not taking someone else's appearance.
    Pandora's Actor: [In answer to Ainz's mundane request of taking World Items] WOOOOORRRRLLDDD ITEM! It can change the world! Immense power! The supreme beings' symbol of greatness! The various sacred treasures sleeping deep within Nazarick. Are you saying their power will finally be unleashed?
    Momonga's inner thought: Whoa. He's so lame!
    • This sometimes bleeds into his performance even when he is attempting to disguise himself, as seen when he (disguised as Ainz) casts "Greater Teleportation" with a distinctly not-Ainz-like dramatic flourish and declaration. In the third season of Ple-Ple-Pleiades, this triggers an "overacting" fad amongst the denizens of Nazarick who believe it was started by Ainz himself, with only Aura and Demiurge figuring out who really kickstarted it by accident.
  • Master Actor: He is exceptionally skilled at emulating people that he's disguised as, just as long as he can keep the ham to himself.
  • Minored in Ass-Kicking: Oh, yeah, besides being completely silly, Pandora's Actor is also the most loyal of Nazarick to Momonga (as his creation), a long-time ally who is allowed to freely voice his concerns over Momonga's plans, and one of the level 100 NPCs, like the Floor Guardians and Sebas. His ability to copy the abilities of Supreme Beings with roughly 80% of their original power make him, to Momonga, a trump card.
  • Money Fetish: He really, really enjoys his job in the treasury. It's to the point that he has to beg Ainz to give him a little "personal time" with Nazarick's magical items after he's been away for a bit. Don't think about this too hard.
  • Morphic Resonance: In the Ple-Ple-Pleiades specials, he transforms into an ordinary housecat, but still has a hat, a necktie, and three tiny holes instead of normal facial features. Nobody considers this odd either. In canon, his transformations are mostly flawless from a physical standpoint, so this seems to be purely for Rule of Funny.
  • No Indoor Voice: Will regularly break into SHOUTING IN FRONT OF PEOPLE LOOKING HIM RIGHT IN THE FACE just to make things sound more exciting and epic.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Large Ham personality aside, his diverse job levels make him an intellectual equal to Albedo and Demiurge. It's also implied he figured out Momonga is not infallible and omnipotent, but keeps it secret as this does not diminish the Undying Loyalty he has for the creator who he sees as a father.
  • Old Shame: In-Universe as Momonga's creation. Momonga was going through a Chuunibyou phase when he created him, and as a result Pandora's Actor looks ridiculous(ly awesome, at least to past-Momonga). However, while he's incredibly embarrassed by Pandora Actor's hamminess and bad German to the point where he has to beg the doppelganger to please stop, he still thinks the uniform is cool.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Played for Laughs. When disguised as a cat, he still has his trademark hat and the same coloration. This is despite the fact that, as a high level Doppelgänger, his disguises can be utterly perfect.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: He often plays this role for Ainz's amusement.
  • Poisonous Friend: Ironically, it's his loyalty to Momonga and him alone that could turn him into one. Albedo has invited him into her conspiracy to potentially kill any Supreme Beings that show up in the New World. Since the Actor takes orders from none but Momonga himself (who isn't aware of the whole thing), no one could stop him from butchering all of Momonga's best friends... for his own good, of course.
  • Power Copying: As a high-level Doppelgänger, he can transform into a target to copy 90% of their abilities if they're below level 60, and 80% of their abilities if they're above that.
  • Put on a Bus: In a manner of speaking. Until about volume nine he wasn't given much to do and after that he started working as Ainz' body double. While useful, this seems to be mostly about keeping him out of the way since he's one of the more versatile and powerful guardians. More importantly, he actually asks what Ainz means by his orders and therefore doesn't make wacky mistakes like committing genocide.
  • Putting on the Reich: His appearance, besides the faceless Doppelganger head, consists of a very Nazi-esque military uniform with an overcoat. Of course, this is based on a "chuunibyou" Momonga's impression of cool evilness.
    • The light novels say his costume resembles a type of Neo Nazi that fought in a future war twenty years before the series.
  • Red Baron: "Ever Changing Man Without A Face".
  • Shapeshifter Default Form: He generally remains in his doppelganger true form when carrying out mundane tasks.
  • Telepathy: As a Doppelgänger, he has the ability to read surface level thoughts of those he's speaking with to see how they expect or want him to respond. Despite this... he rarely deviates from his Large Ham routine.
  • Utility Party Member: In his default form. Since the only thing he needs in combat is his racial power to shapeshift, his job levels are mostly utility skills like "Craftsman" or "Expert".
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: He can assume the form of anyone he's seen, including Ainz.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: The creatures of Nazarick view their specific creator as a combination of parental figure and infallible deity. Pandora is equally proud and overjoyed that his own still remains with them, and finds no greater happiness than having the opportunity to call Ainz, "father," in private. To be praised by him is something beyond words can describe.

    Kyouhukou 

Kyouhukou

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kyouhukou_1.png
Voiced by: Hiroshi Kamiya (Japanese), John Swasey (English)

An Area Guardian whose domain, the Black Capsule, resides on the Second Floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. He has the appearance of a one-foot-tall humanoid cockroach dressed in royal attire. Created by Luci★Fer, he is an Insecoid with Flunky Boss and Zerg Rush specializations.


  • Arch-Enemy: While not openly hostile to each other, he dislikes and fears Entoma Vasilissa Zeta, whom he calls "Predator of Family" because she regularly eats his cockroaches.
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: Translates to "Duke of Terror".
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Both him and his minions.
  • Creepy Cockroach: Resembles a giant cockroach and commands a swarm of roaches ranging in size from a few centimeters to a meter.
  • The Dreaded: He and his children are feared by most of the females in Nazarick. Even his direct superiors, Albedo and Shalltear, find themselves wanting to stay as far away from the Black Capsule as possible. Only the Insecoid females like Entoma are immune to his roach appearance.
  • Faux Affably Evil: In volume 7 he politely greets two members of Worker team Heavy Masher when they are trapped in his lair and thanks them for some reason. When the leader of Heavy Masher tries to negotiate with him, Kyouhukou politely refuses and clarifies that he was thanking them for giving his swarm of cockroaches something to eat other than each other. Seeing the leader desperately struggle against the hopeless odds, Kyouhukou "rewards" his valiant efforts with more roaches.
    • Strangely, his alignment is at -10, which is close to True Neutral, barely on the side of evil (it takes -100 to even qualify for Neutral-Evil). By Nazarick standards, he is a really nice guy. The "faux" part might stem from Blue and Orange Morality.
  • Flunky Boss: Attacks by summoning cockroach minions.
  • Insectoid Alien: Is some kind of giant insect, going by the character sheet.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His name means "Duke of Terror" in Japanese.
  • Red Baron: "Five Worst: Worst Residence"
  • Requisite Royal Regalia: Wears a royal cape, scepter and crown as king of the roaches.

    Gashokukochuuou 
The Area Guardian of the Large Hole on the Sixth Floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick.

The Pleiades

    In General 
The combat maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. Its members originally only served as Nazarick's last line of defense, but Ainz assigned them more tasks after the tomb was transported.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: The Pleiades are incredibly jealous of the Momon stories that Narberal Gamma tells them. Any of them would trade places with her in a heartbeat if Ainz requested it.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: Their cover of the first season ending theme in Pure Pure Pleiades is quite something.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Despite all of the Pleiades appearing as beautiful women, most of them fall under this in some manner.
  • Ninja Maid: With the exception of Sebas Tian, they are all this, though none of them are actually maids. Their maid outfits are purely for aesthetic purposes, as none of them are able to do any maid duties (though Yuri alone, for some mysterious reason, has one level in Cooking).
  • Numerical Theme Naming: Sort of. Technically, the Pleiades Six Stars are "Greek Alphabet Theme Naming" but their names are ordered alphanumerically anyway by letter (Alpha, Beta, Gamma...) and ending with "Omega".
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: They were clearly not designed as real defenders of Nazarick. Not only are they far weaker than the floor guardians that would have to be killed to reach them, the strongest of the maids, Narberal, is still only level 63, which actually puts her below some Nazarick mooks, which can be as high as level 90. However, in the New World, they are at least on par with Adamantite-ranked Adventurers and their basically human appearance makes them valuable agents whereas those like Demiurge or Shalltear are obviously monsters and find it difficult to keep a low profile.

    Sebas Tian 

Sebas Tian

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sebas.png
Voiced by: Shigeru Chiba (Japanese), Ed Blaylock (season 1), Bill Jenkins (season 2) (English)

The Head Butler of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. Though he works alongside Albedo to carry out Momonga's plans, Sebas is not a Floor Guardian and independent of her chain of command. With a legion of butlers as subordinates, he is Nazarick's majordomo, protecting and maintaining the innermost sanctum of the Great Tomb: the living quarters of the Supreme Beings. For this reason, he typically has leadership authority over The Pleiades and 41 Homunculus Maids. Created by Touch Me, he is a dragonoid with overwhelming melee damage, intended to be the Great Tomb's penultimate boss and Hold the Line for the Supreme Beings to make a Final Boss Last Stand in the throne room.


  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: With his bare hands!
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: His initial appearance in the manga his looks are something of a joke, as he's verging on elderly and has impressively long facial hair. In the show he's taller, somewhat younger, has an athletic build, and has shorter, more dignified facial hair. Overall, it makes him reasonably attractive.
  • Ambiguously Human: For a long time, his exact race is not mentioned and is in fact left a secret even on his character profile.
  • Armor Is Useless: Unlike Albedo (who switches into platemail when she fights), Shalltear (who likewise uses heavy plate when she fights seriously), and Cocytus (who has natural armor), Sebas is never seen wearing anything but his butler uniform to battle. It makes sense given his fighting style. Sebas strikes and moves at speeds that defy the human eye, any kind of armor would only serve to impede his movements and slow him down.
  • Assassin Outclassin': Mows through the entirety of the Eight Fingers assassins in 20 seconds.
  • Badass Boast: He gives one to the Six Arms members who was facing him.
    All of you come at me at once. Do so, and you may last 10 seconds.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: The Guardians specifically note that he's the strongest of Nazarick's defenders in the light novel which makes them incredibly nervous when Momonga sent him on recon at the start of the story.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Lampshaded. Gazef specifically calls him one.
  • Berserk Button: Letting Sebas hear a Blasphemous Boast that would imply that one is greater than the Supreme Beings of Nazarick will earn you a swift and brutal death at Sebas' hands.
  • Blade Catch: Is a master of these with just his index finger and his thumb.
  • Battle Aura: Able to project a dark aura that inflicts crippling fear on those who have a weak will. He mentions that people sometimes die outright from it, just because they are so certain they will die that they stop holding onto life.
  • Battle Butler: His primary role in and out of Nazarick.
  • Blatant Lies: After literally curbstomping Zero in volume 6 (after taking no damage from Zero's ultimate blow), he remarked that he was "a tiny bit stronger". Brain, Climb, their rogue companion, and even Tsuare realized he was lying his ass off but didn't call him out on it.
  • Chick Magnet: It's stated that nine out of ten women he runs into start crushing on him at least a little.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Not quite, but the first season of the anime had his right eye blacked out, implying he lost it. This was done away with in the second season.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When he unleashes his Battle Aura, his pupils start glowing red.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He will help those in need, but only those he believes deserve it, and he was willing to take the risk of killing Climb with sheer fright by training his resolve (although he does warn him beforehand and Climb agrees to it). And of course, if for any reason Sebas has deemed the world would be better off without you, make peace with your gods because you are already dead.
  • Ignored Expert: He questions the wisdom of using Shalltear on a mission requiring discretion and precision, which she finds insulting almost to the point of trying to kill him because this implies a lack of belief in Ainz' judgment. However, he turns out to be entirely correct: Her Blood Frenzy really does cause the mission to become a complete and utter failure.
  • Irrational Hatred: He doesn't much like how evil some of the residents of Nazarick are, but accepts them as comrades and can even get along well with the likes of Shalltear. However, he despises Demiurge and isn't really sure why. The only one who knows why the two don't get along is Ainz, who realizes that the gaps in the NPCs' personalities are filled in by inheriting traits of their creators. Touch Me and Ulbert, their respective creators, had a fight in real life that was bad enough to cause them to both quit.
  • Killing Intent: In volume 5 he projects an extremely powerful one at Climb and Brain to test their resolve. Climb finds the strength to stand up while thinking of Princess Reneer. The otherwise stronger Brain, who had thrown away everything due to his desire to be strong, was left paralyzed with fear.
  • Lightning Bruiser: If he goes all out on offense, not even the highest defensive builds can withstand his attacks.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: Sebas is perhaps one of the most cultured and refined of Nazarick's denizens.
  • Mind Control: By touching the forehead of a person with his palm, he can bend them to his will by using a skill called "Hand Of The Puppeteer".
  • Noble Demon: He is one of the few who actually respects humans and treats them well, at least when it's not a case of Humans Are Bastards. For this reason, the other members of Nazarick believe that Sebas Tian suffers from Chronic Hero Syndrome, a holdover from his creator, Touch Me. He himself wonders why he acts like this at times, unsure of whether it is a curse impeding his duties or not.
  • One-Man Army: Single-handedly destroyed the entirety of the top Six Arms enforcers, and their subordinates (with the exception of Succulent who fell to Climb) in 20 seconds. He would have been through quicker except that Fesylian shouted out a very dangerous technique name very similar to something his creator, Touch Me, used to have.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: His true form is never shown, but is apparently draconic.
  • Pet the Dog: His rescue and care of the discarded prostitute Tsuare was motivated almost entirely by his compassion. If able, he will always come to the aid of the weak, helpless, and abused.
    • However, Sebas himself mentions that he would not save someone who merely hoped another would come along to aid them. The reason he protected Tsuare, was because she had the will to survive. His sense of justice is rather draconian.
  • Red Baron :"Butler Of Steel"
  • Silver Fox: Sebas gains many female admirers during his stay in Re-Estize, despite looking like a somewhat elderly gentleman. Tsuare becomes particularly smitten with him. Granted, he's technically younger than most if not all of them, though it doesn't seem that anybody is particularly aware of this.
  • Stupid Good: While he is not stupid by any means, his humanitarian attitude does not align itself all that well with Nazarick's general hatred and contempt towards humanity. He is fully aware of this and even muses that his urge to help those in need is something of a curse.
  • Supernatural Martial Arts: His character classes are all devoted to excel at this.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: He really doesn't like Demiurge. Sebas isn't sure why Demiurge pisses him off so much, since Sebas is able to get along with Shalltear, who also has her share of depraved hobbies.
  • Token Good Teammate: In the character bios, Sebas has the highest Good alignment rating of all the Nazarick NPCs. This is partially the influence of his creator Touch Me who held similar views. Also, unlike most of the other positive alignment NPCs he actually does behave heroically whenever he can. Also, unlike the likes of Pestonya, he wasn't outright designed to behave this way but is merely behaving something like Touch Me.
  • Tranquil Fury: Is truly a master at this. He can be absolutely enraged without showing any emotion on his face or voice, but if he gets his hands on the irritant, and is confident about dealing with the consequences...
  • Underestimating Badassery: The following scene repeats itself quite a few times in the streets of Re-Estize: some lowlife will be seen tormenting an innocent, with Sebas happening upon the scene and very politely asking them to stop. This invariably triggers a response along the lines of "why don't you mind your own business, old man, you wanna get beaten too?" And this is where Sebas demonstrates to the low-lifes the error of their ways in a slightly less polite and friendly, but far more effective fashion.
  • Undying Loyalty: To his creator Touch Me. As loyal as he is to Nazarick and Ainz, his thoughts in volume 5 reveal that if he had to choose between Ainz and Touch Me, he would side with Touch Me in a heartbeat.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: Almost unique among the important Nazarick NPCs in that he believes in helping people with no thought for the benefits or rewards, but his idea of how to act on his sense of justice is extremely merciless and includes killing people who have surrendered to him and can't fight back, the unconscious and will gladly Pay Evil unto Evil when he finds someone particularly scummy. However he only does this to people he find utterly and unrepentantly evil, most lesser thugs he will merely render unconscious and allow the Kingdom's authorities to deal with.
  • Younger Than They Look: He was created to look like an elderly gentleman. While he has the mindset and wisdom of one, the Light Novel notes that he is technically younger than Climb.
  • Your Head Asplode: When Sebas goes for a killing blow, he aims for the head. When his target is weak enough to die from that blow, well...

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yuri_alpha_v2.png
Yuri・α

The vice-captain of the "Pleiades Six Stars", the battle maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She is a dullahan and, as such, is one of the undead. Her head is kept in place by the collar she wears. Unlike most residents of Nazarick, she actually possesses a positive morality score and feels somewhat uncomfortable around her 'little sisters' when they are being particularly sadistic.


  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Yuri's classes are stated to be "Vanguard" and "Striker" with her weapons being heavy gauntlets. We get to see her in action in Volume 6 against Evileye.
  • Bokukko: Yuri uses "boku (ボク)" as a first person pronoun when speaking in private, revealing a somewhat childish nature.
  • Generation Xerox: Yuri's appearance, fighting style and armaments are all modeled off her creator Yamaiko.
  • Headless Horseman: She is a dullahan.
  • Hot Teacher: Yuri often has this look which is modeled off her creator Yamaiko, who was a teacher in real life. She has the personality of a teacher too, lampshaded when Mare calls her a mean teacher (which she takes as a complement) in the 2nd drama CD.
  • House Fey: Being a Dullahan, she's the only one of the maids who could be considered a type of fairy.
  • Noodle Incident: She took part in an experiment conducted by Albedo to determine the range of emotions intellectual undead possessed. However an incident with Shalltear occurred that started a fight between the vampire and succubus. In the end the experiment was a failure and caused a mess that Albedo was ordered (presumably by Ainz) to cleanup with a mop. Apparently Demiurge was a neutral observer of the entire fiasco.
  • Onee-sama: The battle maids consider themselves familial sisters, despite being different creatures, and Yuri is regarded as the eldest and wisest. When the battle maids have an argument or need discipline, she is the one they turn to for advice.
  • Red Baron: "Big Sister of the Battle Maids"
  • Our Zombies Are Different: She has 10 racial levels as a Zombie and 1 level as a Dullahan.
  • Unexpected Virgin: She's been asked for romantic advice, but according to Lupusregina has zero experience in relationships.

Lupusregina Beta

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lupusregina_beta.png
Lupus Regina・β
Voiced by: Mikako Komatsu (Japanese), Alexis Tipton (English)

A member of the "Pleiades Six Stars", the battle maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She is a werewolf cleric noted for her beauty. She is stationed inside Carne Village as an emissary and spy of sorts, frequently tailing people who cannot detect her presence.. While superficially energetic and fond of teasing, she's actually quite cruel and sadistic, which most of the villagers have picked up on.


  • Bilingual Bonus: Her name literally translates to "Wolf Queen, Beta" and transliterates to "Queen of the Wolves, Beta."
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: The Goblin Troop, Enri, and even Nemu, maybe all of Carne Village are well aware that her "nice" persona is just an act. Many fear her, though Enri also has a good deal of respect for her.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: Invoked and Averted. She befriends a young girl in Carne Village, though this is just a ploy to get closer to the humans there.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Her evil grin is described as looking as a cat from storybooks.
  • Contralto of Danger: When the "sadist" part of Lupus comes out to play, her voice becomes noticeably lower in register than her normal Genki Girl persona.
  • Cute and Psycho: Enri notes that she comes across as this in Volume 8. Most of Carne Village just rolls with it, and wisely leaves her alone.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Has red hair and brown skin.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Much like Ainz and Enri, she becomes legitimately surprised at the arrival of the 5000 goblin army under Enri's command.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: She's described as being quite gorgeous to the point that even Enri is sometimes flustered around her.
  • Genki Girl: Her portrayal in the Pleiades specials. The other Pleiades insist this image of her's is a sham though.
  • Good Powers, Bad People: She's a cleric with healing magic, but her epithet is "Sadist Who Wears a Smiling Mask" for a reason.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: The closest thing she has to a redeeming feature is the fact that she will happily put aside her sadistic tendencies in favor of engaging in erotic acts that are safe, consentual, and sane. At Enri's request, she happily teaches the latter how to sexually please her husband, Nfirea, and he is shown to be quite content with the results.
  • Meaningful Name: "Lupus" is Latin for "wolf." Her name literally translates to "Wolf Queen, Beta" or "Queen of the Wolves, Beta."
  • Must Be Invited: She generally won't enter a dwelling unless she's been invited to do so. It's not that she can't, but she offhandedly mentions that like Shalltear her species isn't really supposed to do so and thus has issues with the idea.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: She has five levels in the racial werewolf class, but apart from sharing a reluctance to enter buildings uninvited it's not entirely clear what abilities this grants her.
  • Red Baron: "Sadist Who Wears a Smiling Mask"
  • Right Behind You: Invoked. She loves doing this to people. Especially to Enri.
  • Shipper on Deck: According to Narberal, Lupusregina also supports Albedo’s love for Ainz.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Discussed and subverted. Lupusregina Beta uses goblin redcap summons from the library of Nazarick on Barbro's army, under Ainz's orders because Prince Barbro used flaming arrows on Carne Village. Given a choice, she would have preferred not to, however, because the goblins are level 43, and she thought the "battle" would be over far too quickly for her to enjoy it. She, at least, attempted to enjoy herself with Barbro.
  • Torture Technician: Her ability to heal her targets also comes in handy when she wants to play with her prey a little longer. Shown in the "Pleiades vs Clementine" shorts where she mangles Clementine with her claws, heals her, and immediately resumes mangling her with her claws some more.
  • Verbal Tic: Ends her sentences with "~su!" The overall effect is that she sounds casual and silly.
    Lupusregina Beta: "Wow! So many tropes about me!~su!"
  • White Mage: Lupusregina's class is cleric and she notes that she can heal herself if the injuries are not too severe.

Narberal Gamma

Narberal・Γ
Voiced by: Manami Numakura (Japanese), Anastasia Munoz (English)

The strongest member of the "Pleiades Six Stars", the battle maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She is a doppelganger of the wizard class, but because she only possesses one level in the racial class she is essentially limited to a single humanoid form of surpassing beauty and slightly odd fingers. She works as the magic caster assistant to the warrior 'Momon,' which turns out to have been a regrettable choice on Ainz' part: While most of the Pleiades are just as evil as she is, they can at least feign normal social etiquette while Nabe generally refuses to even learn human names.


  • Ac CENT Upon The Wrong Syl LA Ble: Whenever she says "Momon-san", she ends up stressing "saaa~" in the "-san" honorific as she corrects herself for a full beat to stop saying "-sama" instead. Ainz has given up trying to correct it and tries to pass it off as a peculiar dialect she has.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Brunette, usually stoic, and usually doesn't get along with others.
  • Blood Knight: It's a problem Ainz has her working through, but the first solution she has to any problem is violence. She's also noted to be particularly bloodthirsty among the Pleiades.
  • Changing Clothes Is a Free Action: Has a quick change crystal built into her robe that instantly let's her change her outfit.
  • The Comically Serious: Her duty as "Momon's" companion puts her into contact with people and the daily life of the regular citizen, both things that she has poor skills with, sometimes with humorous results.
  • Compliment Backfire: Enri gasps at how beautiful she is, which she takes as flattery from a mere human insect. However, when Enri compares her to Lupusregina Beta, someone "Nabe" shouldn't know, she accepts the compliment as genuine and thanks her.
  • The Ditz: Thanks to her aloof nature and martial competence (as well as the pair's strangeness in general), onlookers are remarkably bad at noticing just how scatterbrained and socially clueless she really is. She mistakes an incoming job offer as an assassination attempt.
  • Glamour Failure: Dopplegangers are apparently incapable of transforming their fingers away from their true form. Not only are they long and unnatural looking, she only has three of them. She hides this with a pair of gloves. They may be magical given that gloves would not only be incapable of hiding how long the fingers were but also that she only has three.
  • Hammerspace: When she uses her quick change crystal, her robe is put "away" into space.
  • Humans Are Insects: This is a pretty common mindset among Nazarick denizens. Narberal goes so far as to refer to humans as insects even when speaking to them. Among other things, she's called humans planarians, mosquitoes (doubly amusing since said person was actually a vampire and Narberal wasn't even aware of it), gnats, etc. and has never once referred to a human by their name. Even the other members of the Pleaides, including the ones who eat humans, have better social skills.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: Shows her true power to Khajiit when she stops posing as "Nabe" and reveals her true self as Narberal Gamma.
  • Magic Knight: Her true fighting style (as opposed to her adventuring-style Squishy Wizard appearance). She has 10 levels in "War Wizard" and "Armored Mage" each. That said, she greatly favours magic, having over twice as much Magic attack as physical.
  • Mistaken for Romance: People quickly come to the conclusion that Nabe is Momon's lover. While a bit embarrassing, Momon and Nabe don't do much to dissuade the rumors since it makes it easier to get privacy.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: Advocates this when with Momon, a tendency he has worked hard to wean her off. She doesn't quite like how Momon doesn't let her crush any annoying human like the bug he or she is.
  • The Needless: Has a ring that eliminates the need to eat or drink. She has this so she doesn't have to worry about being poisoned but it comes in handy when Ainz has no New World money to buy her food.
  • Psycho Sidekick: To Momon. At least Momon tries to appear as a heroic individual but Nabel is routinely acerbic and contemptuous of just about everyone. Not to mention that she sees absolutely no value in human life and Ainz must constantly remind her not to kill wantonly. It turns out that the other maids blend in much better than her and don't hate humans quite as much, but alas, she's already solidly established as Momon's partner by this point.
  • Red Baron: "Inflexible Battle Maid". Her human guise Nabe gains the unofficial nickname "Beautiful Princess" since the first thing everyone notices about her is her astonishing beauty.
  • Shapeshifter Default Form: She prefers to remain in her Raven Hair, Ivory Skin appearance at all times, as opposed to her doppelganger true form like Pandora's Actor. She can not transform into anything else due to her levels being in job classes.
    • Yuri Alpha noticed when Narberal is relaxing alone or with her sisters, her eyes go void and jaw drops into a gaping position. It immediately reminded her of Pandora's Actor default expression.
  • Shapeshifting: The reason Momon chose her as his companion. Narberal is actually a doppelganger capable of resembling any humanoid creature.
  • Shipper on Deck: She pointedly reminds Momon that Albedo is there for him (rather than Shalltear). Amusingly her throwaway comment about Albedo in human company leads to Nfirea discovering Momon's other identity as the magic caster who saved Carne Village.
  • Shock and Awe: Her favorite spells involve lightning, and she is an elementalist of air.
  • Smug Super: The strongest Pleiade barring Aureole Omega, one of the most evil (tied with Solution), and by very far the most overtly arrogant and scornful. See her face in this illustration, looking like she's just seen a very filthy cockroach crawling all over some clean dishes? This is her default face for interacting with humans. Solution is equally cruel, but she is at least able to fake humanity a bit better.
  • Super Strength: She's strong enough to block and push back a blow from a much-larger skeletal dragon. And physical attack is actually her weakest stat.
  • Willfully Weak: When adventuring as Nabe with Momon, she pretends to be a Magic Caster who can use third-tier magic. This still makes her very powerful by New World standards. With her actual strength, she can actually use magic up to seventh tier, at the very least.

CZ2128・Δ
Voiced by: Asami Seto (Japanese), Michelle Rojas (English)

A member of the "Pleiades Six Stars", the battle maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She is basically a Robot Girl, despite how much this clashed with the setting of YGGDRASIL. She is the second of the maids to possess a decent sense of morality, though this doesn't show much thanks to both her loyalty and being designed to be impossible to read.


  • Berserk Button: She and Entoma argue and roughhouse over who is the younger sister, despite being (more or less) numbered. The pair are annoyed at not knowing who is senior and remains a sensitive topic between them. They've even gone so far to petition Ainz for a final ruling, but he felt it would be wrong to make such a decision on his own without input from their creators.
  • Big Eater: In the Pleiades special set after the second drama cd she enjoys a very sweet drink that has enough calories to last a normal human a full day.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Part of her design, Shizu has a very poor sense of rhythm.
  • A Day in the Limelight: She and Yuri have the least focus of any of the maids, but she gets to have a pretty prominent role in the OVAs.
    • Shizu also gets a lot of focus in the latter half of Light Novel Volume 13 including making her first friend outside of Nazarick.
  • Emotionless Girl: Downplayed. She's designed to be unable to express her emotions, despite still having a full (hard to notice) range of them. Volume 13 for instance has her demonstrate pride over being one of Ainz's subordinates, anger over Neia's fear Ainz could actually be dead, protectiveness of her equipment, disgust when covered in meat, friendliness with Neia as a "junior" Ainz worshiper, sadness that Neia doesn't want one of her stickers, and so on. Albeit in a very monotone, single facial expression kind of way.
  • The Gunslinger: Her class is given as "Automaton Gunner" in the Pleiades specials.
  • Red Baron: "Sneak Attack Maid"
  • Robot Girl: Shizu's design not only is that of a robot girl but she carries incongruous science fiction style guns.

    Solution Epsilon 

Solution Epsilon

Solution・ε
Voiced by: Ayane Sakura (Japanese), Mallorie Rodak (English)

Created by Herohero, Solution is a member of the "Pleiades Six Stars", the battle maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She is a man eating Predator Slime of the assassin class and perhaps the most evil of the Pleiades. She is stationed in the city with Sebas Tian on an information gathering mission by Ainz. Due to her morality differing immensely from that of her boss, the two easily come into conflict when not on duty.


  • Bizarre Alien Biology: She can pick and choose which parts of her "meal" she will digest and when. Ergo, she can willingly dissolve a person while leaving his possessions alone, after swallowing him whole.
  • Blob Monster: She is actually a slime monster, but she usually takes the shape of a girl.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Surprisingly she is one for Ainz, when it comes to his relationship with other slimes. In the Pleiades Day short story, Ainz created a Sapphire Slime named Miyoshi to help clean his body. Solution somehow learns of this and kidnaps Miyoshi so she can be his cleaning slime.
    "Why! Tell me why! I am a slime too! I can clean you better than Miyoshi-kun! Why! Why won't you let me bathe with you and lick your glorious body clean?!"
  • Combat Stilettos: In her Pleiades uniform she wears a maid dress and a pair of ornate greaves that come up only to her thighs, which have pronounced high heels.
  • Daddy's Little Villain: She was created and programmed by Herohero, who played an Elder Black Ooze. Ainz has mentioned the NPC's tend to take behavioral traits from their creator's personalities.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: While she respects Sebas, she can't understand why he rescued and took in Tsuare. He tries to contextualize his decision and Tsuare's continuous presence in terms Epsilon can understand, but fails; and Sebas's continued refusal to inform Ainz of her presence ("Ainz doesn't need to be bothered by this detail.") causes strain in Sebas's and Epsilon's relationship. Eventually, she comes to the mistaken conclusion Sebas must be under somebody's control the same way Shalltear was, and tells Ainz.
  • Exact Words: It's not a good idea to say you want to be "inside her." She'll swallow you whole and digest you just a little bit at a time, just to enjoy your struggles.
  • Extreme Omnivore: As a slime, there's very little she can't eat.
  • Healing Hands: Played with. While she doesn't actually heal people with her hands, she is excellent at diagnosing physical ailments and can extract poisons and some diseases by touch.
  • Honey Trap: She looks like a beautiful girl with a very well-endowed chest. She'll even let you touch... but take her up on the offer, and you will never get to touch anything ever again.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Downplayed. She can store all sorts of things in her body, as she can decide what she wants to digest and when.
  • Hypocrite: She was very judgmental against Sebas for keeping secrets from Ainz and following his own selfish agenda. Later she ends up pulling her own stunt after discovering the existence of Miyoshi.
  • I Am A Humanitarian: Enjoys eating humans for pleasure, as a slime they are not strictly a dietary requirement. If the Pleiades web specials are even remotely canon, she specifically enjoys the taste of their screaming.
    • Zach bore witness to the veracity of that claim. Through first hand experience.
  • Interclass Friendship: Due to similar interests, she and Shalltear often spend their free time together. As the vampire is among the highest ranking and most powerful citizens of Nazarick, Solution's association with Shalltear is not unnoticed. Solution is also one of the Pleiades who sided with "Team Shalltear" for being Ainz's wife.
  • Master Actor: Very adept at playing the role of a spoiled shallow noblewoman. Her real personality is cold and professional.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: She's immune to physical attacks and it's a very bad idea to even try to hit her. She'll just suck you in and devour you.
  • Nightmare Face: She is a specialist of the "rape face". It has to be seen to be believed. It looks like something from a hentai gone horribly wrong. The lack of visible teeth in her horrific lewd Slasher Smile doesn't help, nor does the fact that this is often accompanied with a repugnant squelching sound due to her slimy body abruptly reconfiguring itself.
  • Ojou Ringlets: In her usual appearance. Pretty damn exaggerated when disguised as a noblewoman.
  • Red Baron: "Dissolving Cage"
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Both on and off duty, she's not above playing up her charm and exposing her body, whether it be to appease Ainz or if it gets her victim closer.
  • Shout-Out: Her class title is "Shoggoth Assassin"
  • Slasher Smile: The face she makes in episode 10 when she thinks about eating Zach. It's a wide open grin impossible for humans and made worse by the lack of visible teeth.
  • Slime Girl: A variant, in that she's a slime that can disguise itself as a completely human girl, at least until you touch her. She can adopt forms closer to this trope if she wishes, usually as part of her Honey Trap routine.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With her own boss, Sebas Tian. Though it only happened because of the Tsuare incident and Solution's concern that Sebas was betraying Ainz or had secretly fallen under enemy mind control like Shalltear did. Just before reporting Sebas' unusual behavior to Ainz, Solution showed hesitation in going against the butler because she always considered him a good leader. However Solution's loyalty to Ainz far exceeded that she had for Sebas.
  • Temporary Bulk Change: Played for laughs in the fourth web short special featuring the Pleiades: she eats two humans at once (and they're still alive, being slowly dissolved) and becomes grotesquely overweight. When Ainz is alarmed at her sudden Gonk appearance, he commands her to revert back to her normal beautiful form... which she does by vomiting one of them back out.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Solution is actually a Slime that assumes a humanoid form.

    Entoma Vasilissa Zeta 

Entoma Vasilissa Zeta

Voiced by: Kei Shindou (Japanese), Tia Ballard (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/entomas_profile.png
εντομα βασιλισσα・ζ

A member of the "Pleiades Six Stars", the battle maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She was created by Genjiro. She is a vaguely humanoid collection of insects, which is disguised both by her clothing and a pair of insects that pretend to be her face and voice respectively. Despite being a man-eating abomination, she lacks the sadism of the likes of Solution or Lupusregina, causing Yuri Alpha to consider her a fairly neutral figure. She's also surprisingly sensitive.


  • Affably Evil: She has no compunctions about devouring human flesh, but when she's sated, she is mostly harmless unless provoked, usually prefers to avoid fighting, and can even be fairly friendly to humans. Contrast with most other inhabitants of Nazarick, who hate humans on principle and will kill them in horrific ways whenever they are given the freedom to do so.
  • Berserk Button: She's enraged when she's told that no one would want to be attended by a maid like her, creepy as she is. She knows it isn't true but she is highly offended nonetheless. She's also incredibly pissed after Evileye kills off the parasitic leech that functions as her normal voice.
    • She went absolutely nuts when her maid uniform got dirty in the fight with Gagaran, Tia, and Evileye. She was perfectly willing to walk away if Gagaran and Tia would have let her until that happened, and then she became fixated on killing and eating them.
    • She and Shizu argue and roughhouse over who is the younger sister, despite being (more or less) numbered. The pair are annoyed at not knowing who is senior and remains a sensitive topic between them. They've even gone so far to petition Ainz for a final ruling, but he felt it would be wrong to make such a decision on his own without input from their creators.
  • Big Eater: She tends to be hungry, even when she shouldn't be, and must constantly remind herself to not gouge on things to eat. Because of her Colonial Organism nature, she is feeding for an unknown number of creatures at once.
  • Bilingual Bonus: "Entoma Vasilissa" is Greek for "Insect Queen".
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: See that picture on the right? That's got nothing to do with her actual appearance. Her mouth is located in her throat, her jaw is actually a pair of mandibles and she has two additional spider-like legs concealed under her dress. Her mouth doesn't move when she speaks, because that "face" is the shell of a bug clinging over her real head and is entirely cosmetic, and that voice isn't even hers - it's produced by a leech nesting in her throat after ripping out and fusing with the lips and larynx of the voice's previous owner. Yuck.
  • Brought Down to Badass: She is notably the only one of the otherwise invincible denizens of Nazarick to have anybody from the New World pose a threat to her. She had only a small advantage in her fight against Blue Rose members Tia and Gagaran, bringing the fight to a standstill until Evileye and her insecticide spell joined in with her team. After a drawn out fight, Entoma was down for the count, and she was spared being finished off when Demiurge (in his Jaldabaoth guise) stepped in to save her.
  • Cute Monster Girl: Subverted. She sounds very cute and has an apparently pretty face, but her true form is not even truly humanoid but rather an eight legged monster that her loose clothes can barely conceal. The reason she seems to have a cute voice and pretty face is almost as horrifying as what she really sounds and looks like.
  • Dissonant Serenity: She acts completely casual about eating human limbs.
  • The Dreaded: Specifically identified as such by Kyouhukou.
  • Frozen Face: Her human face doesn't move when she speaks. Justified as it is just the shell of a bug designed to look human.
  • Flunky Boss: She uses insect summons as support and weapons. They're not particularly powerful and by the standards of Yggdrasil they'd be next to worthless, but they're effective weapons against even the strongest adventurers.
  • Game Face: When she's hit with a mid tier spell specialized in killing insects, her lip bug and face insect are both killed. We don't get a proper illustration of what she looks like, but it's said to be horrifying, and the one piece of rough concept art of her by the illustrator all but confirms this. The anime does show what she looks like under her mask. It's... not pretty.
  • Giant Spider: Her true appearance is an Arachnoid (spider-human).
  • Hive Mind: Averted. While she uses plural pronouns ("we" and "us") to describe herself in casual conversation and is a collection of several insects, Entoma is the humanoid spider that comprises nine-tenths of her total mass. She wears other insects as components of her human disguise: the hair are centipedes, the face are beetles, the voice are leeches, etc. These insects are controlled and carried by Entoma, but do not form a collective intellect with her.
  • Horror Hunger: She'll eat anything organic, but especially loves the taste of dead humans, preferring muscular men in particular because they're better for dieting. Interestingly enough, Entoma doesn't particularly have anything against humans and is perfectly willing to let them live if they're not a threat and she isn't too hungry.
  • Horrifying the Horror:
    • The description of Entoma's biological functions are closer to being a Colonial Organism than that of a true single creature. Her insect horror theme and the seeming Hive Mind of her physiology, makes her more so than usual among the monsters of Nazarick. Case in point: Kyouhukou, who is a giant humanoid demon cockroach, fears Entoma because she eats "her own kind" when they are available (specifically: Kyouhukou's roach children).
    • Cocytus tells an envoy of Momonga that he gets along quite well with other Insectoids of Nazarick, naming Kyouhukou and Gashokukochuuou in particular. When Momonga hears this, he puzzles over Entoma not being included, assuming it's because she's female or doesn't visit Cocytus enough. He doesn't realize she's something of The Dreaded among her species.
    • Shalltear and Albedo devote a great deal of time trying to persuade each member of the Pleiades to exclusively support them in becoming Ainz's wife. However neither are in any rush to convince Entoma because she creeps them out and eats cockroaches. This is especially notable for Shalltear since Entoma visits her floors of the Great Tomb quite often, has similar interests as Shalltear, and is roommates with Solution.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Sees humans as nothing more than food.
    • The other insectoids are terrified of her since Entoma also eats other insects like Kyouhukou's cockroaches which makes her a cannibal in their eyes.
  • Insectoid Alien: While not an alien per se, Entoma is part insect and can control them.
  • Logical Weakness: Since she uses insects to fight and is herself part insect, insecticides and such are extremely effective against her. She is nearly slain by Blue Rose thanks to Evileye's 'Vermin Bane' spell.
  • Paper Talisman: Apart from summoning insects, she uses these as a means of attack.
  • Red Baron: "Insect Loving Maid"
  • Serious Business: While she was perfectly fine with walking away from a fight (even asking if Gagaran could just pretend she never saw her) Gagaran getting her maid uniform dirty drove her into an Unstoppable Rage because the maid uniform was given to her by a Supreme Being. She's further angered throughout the fight due to what is implied to be sensitivity over her appearance, namely that nobody would want a creepy creature like her act as their maid.
  • The Swarm: She can summon one as a form of attack.
  • The Symbiote: Entoma utilizes multiple insects to enhance the illusion of her humanoid appearance. In return for providing these services, Entoma protects and provides nourishment for them.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Fulfills this role for the Pleiades, being the smallest and youngest-looking of them, but while she acts the part she is really anything but.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: (Presumably human) arms, as seen in her cheerfully and adorably holding one up alongside a common sausage in an ensemble picture at the dinner table with the other Pleiades.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Ainz. Even when denied her favorite food, she doesn't bear Ainz any grudge. In fact, being allowed to feast on a hand of one of Ainz's human victims is seen as a gesture of kindness.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Her true voice is harsh, guttural, and would never be mistaken for a human voice. The dissonance is only in play when she's wearing her full human disguise. It's a perfect match for her true appearance. Humorously acknowledged: she's reluctant to speak without her fake voice.
  • We Have Reserves: Views the insects she summons as nothing but completely expendable tools.
  • The Worm That Walks: She's not a single entity, but rather at least three insects bundled together. She has a beetle that pretends to be her face, a leech creature that gives her a more human voice and then the primary body, a creature that is really not very humanoid at all.

    Aureole Omega 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aureole_omega.jpg
The leader of the Pleiades Seven Sisters, the battle maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. An Area Guardian whose domain, the Sakura Sanctuary, resides on the Eighth Floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. Anyone who utilizes the teleportation gateways of the Great Tomb will briefly catch a glimpse of her, as she makes her determination to allow or disallow the passage. She is also entrusted with protection of the Staff of Ainz Ooal Gown when it is not in the possession of Momonga.
  • Beef Gate: She is the reason invaders do not use teleportation magic or the Nazarick portal system to skip floors. Enemies who attempt this get teleported to a Dead-End Room where she proceeds to kill them at her leisure.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: How she is presented in the sole official illustration that depicts her. The same illustration has an alternate version that she's completely absent from.
  • Gate Guardian: She has an unspecified degree of control over portals and teleportation in the Great Tomb, and can divert intruders using them to another location of her choice.
  • Immortality: Solution isn't sure Aureole can really be considered human since normal humans aren't immortal. They are uncomfortable with the alternative.
  • Load-Bearing Boss: She is this while in possession of the Staff of Ainz Ooal Gown. In the Yggdrasil MMO, if a raid party destroyed or captured a guild weapon, the associated guild would cease to exist. Momonga believes this danger has not changed in the New World.
  • MacGuffin Guardian: She protects the Staff of Ainz Ooal Gown, which is the guild weapon of Nazarick. Prior to that, she was protecting an unspecified World Class Item (though it was recently reassigned to Shalltear).
  • Miko: The meager hints that describe things about her, seem to indicate she is one. If so, there's rampant fan speculation she's the unrevealed level 100 NPC.
  • Minor Major Character: She holds of a position of vital importance to the Great Tomb as protector of the Guild Weapon, in addition to overseeing its portals and gateways, yet is only referred to in fleeting comments.
  • Red Baron: She was called Lastborn of Pleiades before her true name was revealed.
  • Sequence Breaking: She exists to prevent this tactic against the Great Tomb.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Even before she obtained the Staff of Ainz Ooal Gown, defeating her meant an invasion force could freely use teleportation spells within the Great Tomb. This would allow them to instantly leave the dungeon, restock supplies, gather reinforcements, and return to finish the job without penalty. Her loss, along with the entire Eighth Floor, signifies the defeat of Nazarick is a Foregone Conclusion. This happened once, which led to the creation of Victim.
  • The Strategist: As a class mechanic. She has levels in "commander" classes like General that lets her buff other characters through issuing them "orders" not unlike a D&D Marshal or Warlord.
  • Support Party Member: Her primary purpose is to redirect enemies attempting to use Nazarick's network of portals into traps and dead ends, and when she's cornered, her primary way of defending herself is placing extremely powerful buffs on her minions that are shown to be potent enough to make them reasonable threats to even a max level player. This is particularly notable because she is on the same floor as Victim, which means that invaders who have gotten this far must deal with Nazarick's most powerful defense forces on crack while simultaneously being cripplingly weakened from Victim's self-destruction. No wonder this entire floor is nigh-impossible to get through.
  • Token Human: She is the only human member of the Pleiades. Prior to Tuare's arrival she may be the only truly human subordinate of Nazarick, period (see Mare and Aura for some in-game based explanations). She's also immortal, so she's not exactly a normal human.
  • Too Awesome to Use: She's one of the maximum leveled NPC and possess a variety of Lured into a Trap and Weaponized Teleportation abilities, but protects the Staff of Ainz Ooal Gown and is the safeguard against Sequence Breaking the Great Tomb. As a result she's not permitted to leave her sanctuary or wander the Great Tomb without permission from Ainz first.
  • The Voice: She never leaves her sanctuary, so most denizens of Nazarick only interact with her via Message spells.
  • Weaponized Teleportation: Alluded as her combat specialization.
  • Wutai: The Area under her jurisdiction is themed around Japanese mythology, with subordinates based on various yokai.

Others

    Neuronist Painkill 
Voiced by: Tessho Genda (Japanese), Aaron Dismuke (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/neuronist.png

An NPC whose domain, the Room of Truth, resides on the Fifth Floor of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She is a Cthulhumanoid Torture Technician who exhibits tendencies to Torture First, Ask Questions Later and Torture for Fun and Information. She also believes herself to be a contender in the Love Triangle for Momonga's affections.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: Is romantically infatuated with Ainz. The scary thing is, she's so delusional that she thinks he feels the same way and Albedo and Shalltear's "humanoid" forms are hideous.
  • Cthulhumanoid: A very fat humanoid with an octopus for a head, somewhat similar to a D&D Illithid. Its race is a "Brain Eater" according to the wiki. Tabula Smaragdina looks very similar (albeit much more slender), and seems to be of the same race.
  • Fat Bastard: Not simply fat, but utterly bloated. Being a Torture Technician makes it a bastard by default.
  • Faux Affably Evil: In volume 7, she acts coy and cheerful around a captive Worker whom she is about to torture. She briefly drops the act when she expresses her anger at the Workers for disturbing the home of her beloved master Ainz.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Averted in a rather ingenious way. Though she calls Albedo "fat" and describes Shalltear in even less flattering terms, this is because she knows the appearance of their true forms. While Painkill is hideous and obese, she doesn't try to hide it. Albedo and Shalltear disgust her for not being true to themselves, and thus in turn to Ainz.
  • Love Triangle: She sincerely believes Albedo and Shalltear are in the losing track for Momonga's love.
  • Monster Clown: Is described as looking like a clown, but its antics are not something you'd want children to see. Specifically, it has a long thin tongue and long, slender fingers with painted fingernails.
  • Red Baron: "Five Greatest Evil, Most Evil Job"
  • Torture for Fun and Information: She takes tremendous pleasure in her job.
  • Torture Technician: What she was designed to do.

    Pestonya S. Wanko 

Voiced by: Satomi Arai (Japanese), Jamie Marchi (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pestonya_s_wanko.png

The Head Maid and one of the 41 homunculus maids of the Great Tomb of Nazarick.


  • Butter Face: Has the outer appearance of a beautiful lady but has a head of a dog and a vertical scar on her face running down the center with signs of stitching.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: She, along with Nigredo, were among the only ones to object to killing the people kidnapped from Re-Estize. She even goes as far as to try and help them escape despite knowing the consequences for such an action.
  • The Medic: She's an expert at healing both physical and mental damage.
  • Punny Name: "Wan" is the Japanese sound effect for a dog barking. "Wanko" meanwhile means "doggie" or "puppy" but can also mean "dog girl".
  • Shipper on Deck: Seems to support Tuare's feelings for Sebas.
  • Token Good Teammate: Not only does she not despise humans, she was designed to be a nurturing and caring person.
  • Verbal Tic: Like Lupusregina and her "-su", she tends to end sentences with the sound "wan!" (which, as described above, is the Japanese onomatopoeia for a bark). It is not a real tic and she has to remember to add it.

    Homunculus Maids 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/homunculus_maids_profile.png
Three of the maids. Clockwise from the top: Cixous, Lumière and Foire

Cixous voiced by: Sayaka Senbongi (Japanese), Dani Chambers(English)
Foire voiced by: Miho Okazaki (Japanese), Brittany Lauda (English)
Lumière voiced by: Saori Onishi (Japanese), Jennifer Alyx (English)

The actual maids of Nazarick who perform day to day housekeeping of the Great Tomb's inner sanctum. There are 41 members total, all of whom are level one non-combatants of various domestic specializations. Individually created by Coup De Grace, Herohero, and Whitebrim in separate groups, which defined three social cliques the maids associate with.


  • Argument of Contradictions: Whenever the maids discuss why Momonga is an awesome Supreme Being. They all agree he's the perfect master, they just don't agree what specifically makes him so wonderful.
    Maid A: He's merciful and beautiful!
    Maid B: He's Death incarnate!
    Maid C: He's a super powerful genius!
  • Maid Corps: There are 41 of them and they are the ones who perform domestic duties in the Great Tomb of Nazarick, unlike the Pleiades, who are a different kind of maid corps.
  • Shipper on Deck: The maids of Nazarick are divided between two ideological factions: one supporting Albedo being with Momonga and the other seeking a Shalltear victory. Only a handful of maids remain neutral, with both hopeful wives seeking to win them over to their camp. Because of the influence they possess among their coworkers, courting the Pleiades is considered an important milestone by Albedo.
  • Workaholic: When Momonga revised their work schedule to factor a single maid having a day off once every 41 days, they begged him to reconsider. They also lamented his suggestion to not clean unoccupied rooms everyday. Momonga eventually struck a deal that any maid who took a day off, would spend the next as his daily personal attendant. This only worked because the maids don't view it as a day off, but a moment to calm nerves and make necessary preparations to serve the last Supreme Being without mistakes.

    Nigredo 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nigredo.png

An NPC of the Great Tomb of Nazarick, She is the older sister of Albedo and Rubedo. Nigredo is currently imprisoned in the "Frozen Prison", situated on the fifth floor of Nazarick.


  • Adapted Out: In the Light Novel, Ainz and Albedo visit her so that she could locate Shalltear. In both the manga and anime, this scene is omitted, so Nigredo still hasn't appeared.
  • Baby-Doll Baby: When first encountered she will incessantly search for her missing child. She can be appeased by offering her a doll of a young child that she will accept as her child.
  • Broken Bird: Originally designed by her creator based off a character in a "slasher" horror movie.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Bizarrely, she along with Pestonya were among the only ones who objected to killing innocent people kidnapped from Re-Estize and tried to aid them in escaping. Her canon Character Alignment (marked as a Karma meter with most of Nazarick's denizen's unsurprisingly in the negatives) is not known.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Her appearance after being appeased.
  • Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl: Her appearance when first encountered.
  • Token Good Teammate: Surprisingly enough, she's one of the few who opposes killing innocent people. It seems to be because her basic design is 'crazed ghost mom'.

    Rubedo 
The sister of Albedo and Nigredo. She is considered to be the Strongest Entity of Nazarick, and could easily defeat the likes of Shalltear or Momonga with zero effort. Her name comes from the term for a completed philosopher's stone (Rubedo) as opposed to her sisters, who are successive stages in the stone's formation. Nigredo calls her 'Spinel', a stone often confused for ruby, implying that she is a 'false red', undeserving of her title.
  • Almighty Janitor: She is recognized by all as the most powerful NPC of all Nazarick, even stronger than most of the Supreme Beings, but she isn´t even a Guardian.
  • The Dreaded: For mysterious reasons, she is feared by Nigredo as the single greatest threat to the Great Tomb's future. Her suspicions might be prophetic, as Albedo intends to utilize Rubedo in a secret plan to slay the Supreme Beings before Momonga can meet them.
  • Minor Major Character: She is the single most powerful entity in the Great Tomb, and by extension the entire New World, but only her name and cryptic hints of her threat potential are known.
  • World's Strongest Woman: No one could ever hope to defeat her in a solo battle. You'd either need an army of level 100 player characters or utilize a Game-Breaker item to take her down. Even Ainz wouldn't stand a chance.

    Titus Annaeus Secundus 
The Chief Librarian of Ashurbanipal in the Great Tomb of Nazarick.

    Eclair Ecleir Eicler  
Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama (Japanese), Kyle Philips (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eclair_ecleir_eicler.png
The assistant butler in the Great Tomb of Nazarick.
  • Almighty Janitor: Averted... although he'll claim otherwise. Everyone in the Great Tomb knows he is delusional and go along with it.
  • Everything's Better with Penguins: He has the physical form of a large Emperor Penguin, and the difficulty of waddling around the Great Tomb is remarked upon by others. CZ2128 Delta also finds him especially adorable, and will carry him around like a favorite stuffed animal.
  • Poke the Poodle: His grand plan for the Tomb once he topples its leadership is to... ensure it's cleaned everyday.
  • The Starscream: Parodied. He constantly talks about how he'll one day take over the tomb of Nazarick for himself, but only because he was actually designed to be this way by the Supreme Beings. The rest of Nazaricks' denizens humor him but know that he's in truth loyal to Nazarick, but they still don't like it.

    Sous-chef 
Voiced by: Takuya Sato (Japanese), John Burgmeier (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sous_chef.png
An NPC of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. He normally works in the Restaurant of Nazarick, but on a specific day of the week, he manages a bar in the 9th floor.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: Because of a bad experience with Shalltear, he's convinced that men are better patrons of his bar than women. Sous-chef reflects Sebas and Cocytus were more open and civil when talking about their problems, as opposed to Shalltear's secretive and over emotional reaction. He keeps the opinion to himself, since Shalltear is a superior Floor Guardian, but vows to never willingly invite another woman to his bar.
  • Mushroom Man: He is of the Myconid heteromorphic race, which means he is a humanoid with a giant mushroom for a head.
  • Non-Indicative Name: More specifically, the "sous-" part (French for "under") would imply that he's the assistant of another chef, while he's actually the lead chef.
  • Stealth Insult: He serves Shalltear cheap drinks with food coloring, claiming they're exotic cocktails, because she doesn't follow proper drinking etiquette. He'd rather throw her out the bar, but cannot due to her being an elite Floor Guardian.
  • Team Chef: He is the lead chef at Nazarick, and most of the denizens do have to eat. Sebas Tian suggested, and Ainz agreed, to send Tsuare to him to be his assistant and apprentice in this endeavor. The fact that she has some experience and talent in this certainly helped.

    Pulcinella 
Voiced by: Taisuke Nishimura (Japanese), Keith Kubal (English)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pulcinella_manga.png
Apparently inspired by a classical character of the same name he is currently working diligently under Demiurge.
  • For Happiness: With a very strange definition of "happiness." He will cut off one prisoner's arms so that the others are "happy" they still have theirs, then cut off the legs of a second so the first is "happy" he has his, and on down the line... until everyone's "happy."
  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: This is essentially his world view. He even refers to Demiurge as being "kind-hearted and caring".
  • Monster Clown: Is described as looking like a clown, but his antics are not something you'd want children to see.
  • Obliviously Evil: Whether collecting materials from "livestock" or describing Demiurge's "Breeding Experiments" he is very much evil but seemingly unaware of such.

    Iguva= 41 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iguva41.png
The lich field commander of the undead army that was sent to annihilate the lizardmen tribes, but was instead defeated by them.

Strongly implied to be the (experimental) raised corpse of Iguvaruji.


  • Defeating the Undefeatable: The Lizardmen most certainly thought so.
  • Dem Bones: He's a low level lich.
  • Disk One Final Boss: To the Lizardmen. He was a bigger challenge than the undead, but nothing compared to Cocytus.
  • Elite Mook: He was the field commander of the undead army, and while he is somewhat powerful, he is still very levels away from Ainz and the Floor Guardians.
  • Playing with Fire: His favorite spell is Fireball, and he launches them like they're going out of style.
  • General Failure: Even Momonga admits its creation was ultimately a failed experiment, though he considers to use the lessons learned in making a less flawed version.
  • Killed Off for Real: By the Lizardmen, who showed a surprising degree of tactical ingenuity and bravery to make it happen.
  • The Necromancer: He can summon undead warriors to defend him.
  • Our Liches Are Different: Unlike Momonga who is a complete skeleton, he is more similar to a mummified corpse.
  • Red Baron: "Experimental Sample 41"
  • Squishy Wizard: He possesses some quite powerful spells but is very weak in close combat. He himself lampshades this.
  • Taking You with Me: He tried this.
  • This Cannot Be!: Could not even grasp the possibility that Nazarick could fail.
  • Undying Loyalty: He is fanatically loyal to Ainz and Nazarick; his final words were him begging Ainz to forgive him.
