Characters / Release That Witch Witch Association

Go To

The Witch Cooperation Association was originally formed to find the "Holy Mountain", a place where witches would never again suffer the Demonic Bite. After its near decimation, it was later reformed into the Witch Union, a group that would support the Kingdom of Graycastle, specifically Prince Roland.

Witch Union

Is your curiosity satisfied now, my prince?!
The first witch introduced to the audience. The protagonist met her as she was about to be executed. She and Roland eventually get into a relationship, with her to become the new queen of Graycastle.
  • Abusive Dad: Her father is a real piece of work, an entitled and ungrateful bastard who sold her to The Church for execution after she saved his life, and still continues to demand "living expenses" after Roland saved her.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Sweet, sensitive, and kind, but she's one of Graycastle's strongest witches, and her anger is a force of nature.
  • Childhood Friend: With Nana.
  • Clothing Damage: Roland provided her with a great many outfits that she literally burned through, as she practiced to master her powers.
  • Faking the Dead: Roland has a death row inmate take her place on the execution platform to fool The Church.
  • First Girl Wins: She is the first female character introduced and Roland's Love Interest.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She has flaxen hair and is one of the nicest characters in the series.
  • Hold the Line: During Roland's first "Months of Demons," she, of her own volition, ran into a breach of Border Town's wall and held off Demon Beasts alone, until cover fire could be used to protect and repair the wall.
  • Lone Survivor: Aside from her father, she's the only one who survived when her home spontaneously caught fire.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Her powers awakened when a mugger tried to kill her father and steal his purse as he was pinned beneath rubble in a mining accident. She fought off the mugger only to have her father sell her out to be executed by the local Church clergy.
  • Not Afraid to Die: She showed no fear as she was being dragged to the execution block because she was ready to accept her fate.
  • Official Couple: With "Roland".
  • Parental Abandonment: Her mother died in a fire, and her father sold her to The Church.
  • Playing with Fire: Her powers revolve around fire.
  • The Smart Girl: Theoretically one of the smartest characters in the series, being naturally curious in knowledge that Roland provides. Eventually she becomes the Head of Industry due to her knowledge.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Fire does not harm her, in the slightest. Her clothes... are a different matter.
  • Technicolor Fire: Upon reaching adulthood, she can produce green fire with freely controllable temperature. After understanding how heat interacts with molecules, Anna's newly evolved magic grants her black fire with tangible properties, which she can voluntarily manipulate the shape or temperature of selective parts of the flame.
  • You Are a Credit to Your Race: Her heroism at protecting Border Town's wall, and the citizens behind it, convinced the entire population of Border Town that The Church's propaganda about "witches being the spawn of demons" was a lie.

Teacher, will I be executed too?
The second witch introduced to the audience and friends since childhood with Anna.
  • Born Lucky: As a witch, she's introduced around the time where "Roland" is beginning to build his town with the help of witches, her father is supportive of her even when she turns out to be a witch and her ability to heal makes it easy of Roland for his populace to warm up to her and by extension the witches.
  • Cheerful Child: She is a very sweet and happy girl.
  • Combat Medic: Her primary role in Roland's witch association, to the point that Roland is understandably worried that due to her abilities the medical advancement of his kingdom in the lower priority.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Roland's "practice regimen" for her to understand her powers, not to mention being at the front line during the "Months of Demons" and witnessing all sorts of horrific injuries changed her from someone that got squeamish around the sight of suffering and bloodshed to someone who happily comments about severing and reattaching limbs and all sorts of horrific "experiments" involving small, helpless animals.
  • Good Parents: Unlike Anna, her father did his best to hide her magical nature, and upon finding out that she was brought to the castle of Border Town for Roland, went in person, ready to challenge royalty, to make sure nothing untoward happened.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Illustrated as golden-haired blonde in the manhua, sweet and sensitive little girl.
  • Healing Hands: Her powers involve accelerating natural healing by touch.
  • Healing Shiv: Upon reaching adulthood she can use her ability to grant healing properties to surgical tools.
  • Nice Girl: Even considering the entries above, she is still a sweet, sensitive girl.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Her first thought to anything bad that might happen is to usually ask if she is going to be killed.

Don't run away now, young prince. I just want to have a little chat.
The first witch to defect from the Witch Association to Roland's Witch Union.
  • All for Nothing: She goes through a great deal of work to acquire blueprints to Roland's revolutionary steam engine design, something that would have greatly improved the lives of her sisters among the Witch Organization, only for the leader of said organization to burn them before her eyes as "a worthless fantasy designed by commoners."
  • Attack Hello: She greets Roland for the first time by throwing a dagger at his bedroom door when he somehow sensed her presence and tried to run away.
  • Bodyguard Crush: On Roland. Both he and Anna are well aware of it. Even Nana noticed it before Anna.
  • Cleavage Window: Her main outfit exposes the top part of her chest, which she can use as a Victoria's Secret Compartment.
  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: Her parents were very loving until they were presumably killed in a riot after a mine collapse. Then her powers awakened...
  • Does Not Like Men: She, like Wendy, used to dislike men until her encounter with Roland, whom of which she has feelings upon.
  • Dumb Blonde: Despite always attending supplementary classes implemented by Roland to the witches and also having a noble background, she's one of the lowest scorers during exams, frustrating her to no end.
    • Subverted in that Roland notes that although her academic knowledge is poor, her instinctual grasp of concepts such as a round world are rather good.
  • Enemy Eats Your Lunch: She is not an "enemy" but she does have a habit of taking others food and drink.
  • Guns Akimbo: Roland provides her with his first fully functional revolvers. She dual wields them.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: According to the trailer, her hair is every bit as flaxen blonde as Anna, and she's just as good and kind of a woman.
  • Hitman with a Heart: Before joining the Witch Association, her uncle forced her into the assassination business and treated her like dirt.
  • Human Shield: She tried this against Zero. Zero's ability simply went right through her.
  • Intangibility: She can go through solid objects.
  • Invisibility: Her basic power is this.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Is aware that Anna and Roland love each other and supports their relationship.
  • Living Lie Detector: She can always tell when someone is lying in her presence. This doesn't extend to people who either use Exact Words or genuinely believe their own lies.
  • Love Hurts: Nightingale loves Roland, but knows that his heart belongs to Anna. She stays by his side regardless of how much it hurts her feelings to see them together.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: She was entirely loyal to her Witch Organization until the leader of said organization attacked her with a poisoned snake and offered her the "mercy" of recanting her experiences in Border Town to then launch a suicidal venture into Demon controlled territory.
  • Occult Blue Eyes: According to the official animated trailer, her eyes are a very pale blue. They only look purplish in the manhwa due to the lighting conditions. Fully illuminated, they are indeed quite blue.
  • Professional Killer: Nightingale was once called Shadow Killer and was feared by the nobles in the Central Region of Graycastle before she joined the Witch Union.
  • She's Got Legs: Her outfit emphasizes her long, beautiful legs.
  • Superpower Lottery: Her powers are Invisibility, Silent Movement, Intangibility and Lie Detection. Everything perfect for being a Spy/Assassin.
  • The Tease: When she was with the Witch's Cooperation Association, she loved to tease Roland. After joining Roland she seems to developd a case of Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest.
  • Teleportation: Sort of. She passes through some kind of alternate dimension where she can observe the world but not be affected by it, though there are powers and abilities that can still affect her even in "the mist".
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: She will sometimes keep letters in-between her breasts.

Formerly of the Witch Association, she becomes one of the founding members of Roland's Witch Union in Graycastle.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Nightingale cuts off her arm to slow down the spread of poison from a snake bite. Nana is later able to reattach the arm.
  • Beauty Mark: The manhua also give her one below her right eye.
  • Blow You Away: Her power is mastery over wind.
  • The Chains of Commanding: She feels that being the leader of Roland's Witch Association is a burden she'd rather not have, but she does it anyway because the junior witches need her.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: When the leader of the Witch Cooperation Association turned on Nightingale and attacked her, Wendy was torn between the two. She ultimately chose to save Nightingale's life.
  • D-Cup Distress: Literally. Her ample bosom gave her severe neck and back pain until Roland introduced her to modern bras and she's secretly very grateful about it.
  • Does Not Like Men: She used to fear men due to her experiences with them until meeting Roland.
  • Eyes Always Shut: A trait given to her in the manhua adaptation. She seems to open her eyes when talking about a serious subject or using her powers.
  • Mundane Utility: Before joining Roland's side, she mainly used her magic to dry clothes and meat.
  • Punny Name: Her name is Wendy, she controls the wind.
  • Team Mom: Wendy always looks out for what's best for her sisters. This is what makes Roland decide to make her the leader of the Witch Union.

The daughter of an explorer from the Fjords and a relatively new member of the Witch Cooperation Association.

  • Genki Girl: She seems to be filled with boundless energy.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: The manhua illustrates her as a blonde, and a good, upright woman, if a bit mischievous.
  • Idiot Hair: The manhua adaptation gives her one.
  • Innocently Insensitive: She doesn't have much of a filter when speaking, causing what she might think as compliments to come off more like insults.
  • Like Father, Like Son: She aspires to discover new things, just like her father, whom she deeply admires.
  • Older Than They Look: We don't know her actual age but she looks easily around early teens, however she states she has never lost a drinking contest, suggesting she is at least late teens.
  • Power Floats: She is rarely ever seen on the ground. Preferring to float at every opportunity.
  • Super Speed: After awakening her magic, Lightning can accelerate to the point of breaking the sound barrier during flight. Her branch ability creates a magic cocoon around her to provide a safe surrounding at supersonic speeds, but her magic consumption increases in proportion to the speed difference between the internal and external environments.
  • Tomboy: Her manhua look is rather boyish, and it fits her adventurous personality.

One of the senior members of the Association. She became leader after their disastrous encounter with the demons and led the survivors to Border Town, where they would come under the protection of Roland and become the Witch Union.

One of the founders and survivors of the Witch Association.
  • Achievement By Ignorance: She becomes the first non-combatant witch to become an Transcendent...despite her not knowing how she achieved it by herself
  • Dream Walker: Her power as an Transcendent enables her to enter Roland's Dream World.
  • Hot Teacher: Roland hired her to become the Head of Education due to her abilities.
  • Photographic Memory: Her power allows her to remember everything that she has ever experienced and even have a memory book that she can search for the details.

A survivor from the Witch Association who has a strong initial distrust of Roland.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She was from an orphanage that promised the young girls that they could live with nobles and be happy. The owner was really just finding witches to sell and killed off any that reached adulthood and didn't exhibit magic powers. She found this out when the Association showed her the grave of corpses, one of whom was a dear friend of hers.
  • Lethal Harmless Powers: One wouldn't think the ability to "keep food fresh" would be of much use on the battlefield, although it's excellent in camp. However, once she understood that her ability focuses on controlling micro-organisms, she near-single handed stopped a plague unleashed by The Church. After her magic undergoes a second transformation and develops a derivative skill that allows her body to store microbes, Roland realizes her potential as a "walking bioweapon".
  • Tsundere: She likes to act mean, but she really cares about others.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Mystery Moon.

    Mystery Moon 
A survivor of the Witch Association. She has low self-esteem and is good friends with Lily.
  • Magnetism Manipulation
  • Nervous Wreck: As a result of being constantly berated by Cara and her power being regarded as useless, Mystery Moon has absolutely no self-esteem when she first joins the Witch Union.

A witch that Roland first meets as a rather large pigeon.
  • Animorphism: She can take on the form of any bird or flying creature, including Demon Mounts.
  • Born Lucky: She's the luckiest member of the cast, with even Ashes herself warns Lorgar not to confront her as her opponents couldn't get rid of their bad luck.
    • To give context on how lucky she is, she manages to get high scores in Roland's exam due to her absurd luck.
    • She also manages to acquire the tastiest Chaos Drinks Evelyn made that even witches once suspected Evelyn telling Maggie beforehand.
  • Took a Level in Badass: She initially had no way to use her powers offensively. After evolving, she gained the ability to contribute in battles by transforming into a flying demonic beast.
  • Turncoat: Starting out as a witch on the Sleeping Island, she later stayed as their "diplomat" in Roland's kingdom, where she happily indulges as the standard of living is higher.
  • Verbal Tic: "Coo!"


Witch Cooperation Association

The original leader of the Witch Cooperation Association.
  • Animal Assassin: Her witch powers involve summoning snakes, venomous and otherwise.
  • Can't Kill You, Still Need You: To Lightning, though Cara never said it aloud. Cara's internal monologue frequently mentions wanting to slowly and painfully kill Lightning for being "a nuisance", but she gulps down her rage because Lightning's scouting talent is keeping her and her group alive...
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Combined with Redemption Equals Death. Although she dies in battle with the demon soldier "Iron Hand," she managed to use her snakes to rip its outfit apart, bleeding it of its "Red Mist." This allows Leaf, and five others, to survive the encounter, barely.
  • Evil Cripple: She's carried everywhere due to an injury against Nightingale that cost her the use of her legs, and she's vicious beyond words.
  • Fantastic Racism: She believes witches are not only superior to "common people" on all points without exception, but once her association reaches "Holy Mountain" planned to return and enslave them all.
  • Fantasy-Forbidding Mother: When Nightingale returned from Border Town, as a scout, a role Cara herself assigned, Cara outright refused to heed Nightingale's testimony and physically destroyed the Steam Engine blueprints Nightingale acquired at terrible personal cost "because commoners can't be trusted, and the machine is just a fantasy."
  • General Failure: She is so fixated on finding "The Holy Mountain" that she ignored her compatriot's fatigue, lack of supplies, or the terrain, leading her association to almost total annihilation in Demon controlled territory. Of the 40 odd members that remained after the defection triggered by her own attack on Nightingale, only six escaped the bloodbath, and that was sheer luck. She was not among the survivors.
  • Green and Mean: Has green hair and is a total bitch to her followers.
  • Knight Templar: She believes herself the incarnation of righteousness, and disagreeing with her can get you killed.
  • A Mother to Her Men: And a particularly abusive one.
  • Obliviously Evil: After she outright attacks Nightingale with a poisoned snake, she's honestly shocked that Nightingale would retaliate with the battle causing a schism and defection of several key members.
  • An Offer You Can't Refuse: She believed that if she attacked Nightingale with a poisoned snake, this would force Nightingale to submit, recant her testimony regarding Border Town, and then return to the fold with Blind Obedience. Had she bothered to listen to Nightingale's testimony, she would have known how stupidly suicidal such an action was.
  • She Who Fights Monsters: Her self-righteous delusions make her just as bad as The Church that she's both fleeing from and wants revenge against. Nightingale calls her out on it.
  • Tautological Templar: Since her goal of finding "Holy Mountain," a place that supposedly allows witches to Awaken without suffering "the demon's bite" is a noble goal, she believes all her actions in pursuit of that goal are above reproach, ignoring all evidence to the contrary.
  • Total Party Kill: Only a few witches that went to find the Holy Mountain survive a Demon Attack, herself not included.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has green hair in the manhua.

How well does it match the trope?
