    General 

Warlocks (魔族, mazoku)

Male members of the humanoid species in the Magical Realm. They live in the barren Warlock Realm beyond the mountain, with Grande as their leader and general. In the narrow sense, the word "warlock" refers to a member of their major subgroup living by the culture of Wizard Kingdom as opposed to their traditional subgroup called the wizards.
  • Always Male: The female magic users are known as witches.
  • Disappeared Dad: Invoked. It's the custom among them to send their daughters to live with their mothers in the Witch Realm.
  • Foreshadowing: Atelia warns Arusu and her friends that Grande's faction within them may be coming to capture fairies. As Arusu and her friends learn from Sigma and Wil, the warlocks have become divided into the technology-using Wizard Kingdom and the magic-using wizards of the old order for over 2 centuries.
  • Magic Versus Science: They have become divided into the technology-using Wizard Kingdom and the magic-using wizards for over 2 centuries. Naturally, Wizard Kingdom is home to the villains — the military dictatorship of the warlocks oppress the wizards as the remnants of the old magical order, forcing them to live in Miche Village since the establishment of Wizard Kingdom and having turned them into a Dying Race in the present. In the Grand Finale, both groups get back together to rebuild the Magical Realm with the witches.
  • The Magic Versus Technology War: The magic-using wizards have been rebelling against the technology-using military dictatorship of the warlocks for over 2 centuries.
  • Nonindicative Name: Zigzagged. Most of the warlocks no longer use magic, and those who still do have become a Dying Race named the wizards in the present.
  • Noodle Incident: It's never explained what exactly caused the warlocks to become divided into the technology-using Wizard Kingdom and the magic-using wizards. However, according to the aubenas statue, some people found out one day that there were those who could use magic and those who could not, leading to a feud between them as a result of the latter's attempt to eradicate the former out of fear.
  • Sliding Scale of Gender Inequality: The witches in the Warlock Realm only appear in the background of crowd scenes. Although Sheila states that Menow lives in Miche Village, Menow doesn't appear among the wizards onscreen. Given that the warlocks are the villains, this implies that they are a He-Man Woman Hater/Straw Misogynist culture.

Wizard Kingdom (ウィザードキングダム, Wizādo Kingudamu)

    General 
"One day, they just started saying that science is going to be a reliable power instead of an unreliable power like magic. The town changed. We didn't have a place to stay anymore. I led my fellow wizards and fought against the society that was filled with mass production and mass consumption. But we were no match for science. You saw it, didn't you? The huge civilization that they created."
Wil to Arusu, "The True Wizard" (subtitles)
The technologically-advanced underground capital city of the Warlock Realm, as well as the headquarters for the main enemy faction of the original series.
  • Anti-Magic: They have developed traps that nullify all magic within the area they cover, as seen in "Witches' Tradition" and "Happy Birthday".
  • Anti-Magical Faction: The military dictatorship of the warlocks excludes magic from Wizard Kingdom out of a belief in the superiority of technology over it, which is likely why those who marry into the warlocks can no longer use magic. Consequently, they oppress the wizards as the remnants of the old magical order, forcing them to live in Miche Village since the establishment of Wizard Kingdom and having turned them into a Dying Race in the present. Even discussing anything magical in Wizard Kingdom arouses the suspicion not only of the civilians but also of the warlock police, as shown when Arusu loudly asks Sigma about magic and the fairies captured by the military.
  • Bread and Circuses: The warlocks may have a military dictatorship, but at least everyone in Wizard Kingdom always has plenty of food and entertainment.
  • Color Motif: White is everywhere - the fortress uses the silvery white metal architecture, the upper echelons wear white, and one of Grande's faction (Sigma) has white hair.
  • Crapsaccharine World: Wizard Kingdom is a Shining City where everyone can enjoy every possible food and numerous entertainments created by high technology. It's also a military dictatorship run by Grande, who plans to destroy the Human Realm through dark magic to make a new realm for his species in their old, dying Magical Realm. The warlock police are implied to be responsible for the censorship on anything magical, as they ask Arusu what is wrong with her upon eavesdropping on her asking Sigma what happened to magic and the fairies captured by the military.
  • Everything Is An Ipod In The Future: Wizard Kingdom uses clean white metal architecture with smooth lines and bright-colored lights.
  • Fantastic Racism: The military dictatorship of the warlocks oppresses the wizards as the remnants of the old magical order, forcing them to live in Miche Village and destroying their culture for over 2 centuries.
  • Fantasy Conflict Counterpart: The oppression of the wizards by the military dictatorship of the warlocks seems to have some parallels with the Nazis' treatment of the Jews and the Japanese treatment of the Ainu. They engage in an ethnic cleansing campaign against the wizards as the remnant of the old order of magic, driving them into Miche Village, as well as slowly erasing their culture and identity for over 2 centuries.
  • Genocide from the Inside: The military dictatorship of the warlocks have turned the wizards, the traditional subgroup of their own people, into a Dying Race in the present, something Wil laments to Arusu.
  • Gotta Catch Them All: After the invasion of the Witch Realm by a hydra fairy, the warlock military embarks on a mission to secure the True Book of Spells, the 100 fairy species, and a witch, all of which they need to cast dark magic.
  • Irony: Even though the military dictatorship of the warlocks oppresses the wizards as the remnants of the old magical order, they need the True Book of Spells, each one of the 100 fairy species, and a witch to cast dark magic.
  • Light Is Not Good: Wizard Kingdom is the shining capital city of the Warlock Realm, surrounded by Everything Is An Ipod In The Future aesthetics. The populace wears bright colors, mainly white and sometimes gold, in contrast to the witches and wizards who wear dark/earthly colors. It's also home to the military dictatorship of the warlocks, which not only oppresses the wizards as the remnants of the old magical order but also plans to destroy the Human Realm with dark magic in hopes of making a new home for their species to escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm.
  • Ludd Was Right: They are the technology side in The Magic Versus Technology War, and the military dictatorship of the warlocks is portrayed as evil in that they use technology to keep the populace in line with Bread and Circuses and to oppress the wizards, the traditional subgroup of their own people.
  • Man in White: The male civilians wear white hoods and grey suits. While authority figures like Grande, Tiana, and Luca wears white yellow-trimmed suits, Sigma wears a white black-trimmed suit.
  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: The military dictatorship of the warlocks is led by Grande, who plans to destroy the Human Realm through dark magic in hopes of making a new home for his species to escape the destruction of the Magical Realm. They believe in the superiority of technology over magic and thus oppress the wizards as the remnants of the old magical order, forcing them to live in Miche Village since the establishment of Wizard Kingdom and having turned them into a Dying Race in the present. At one point, Tiana addresses Grande with "-kakka", a Japanese Honorific used for the Führer. When the special task force urges the witches to fight the warlocks, Luca paints humans as a scapegoat in an effort to get both groups together, claiming that one of them, Arusu, has hidden the True Book of Spells to keep dark magic from saving all the witches and warlocks from the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm.
  • Nonindicative Name: Wizard Kingdom is the capital city of the Warlock Realm, as well as the headquarters for A Nazi by Any Other Name that oppresses the wizards as the remnant of the old magical order. Furthermore, nothing suggests that Grande's position as the leader and general of the warlocks is hereditary.
  • Not Always Evil: Arusu's encounter with the mysterious Sigma convinces her that not all the warlocks are enemies, a notion Sheila disagrees with. As it turns out, however, all the civilians in Wizard Kingdom are shown doing completely normal, innocent activities like eating and playing. It's Grande, military commanders, and soldiers who are the really evil ones. Even Sigma and Luca, who are part of the warlock military, are not purely evil; the former actually seeks the savior for his dead father's sake while the latter regrets Jidan's Disney Death when the human's children reunite him with his young son. While the dictatorship uses technology for Bread and Circuses, oppression, and war, some warlocks in The Adventures show that science can be used for good as well; Magica from "The Secret of Dragon House" uses his computer skills to stop the Civilization Destroyer created by his Mad Scientist father, while the escape pods created by Weazel and Molza from "Magical Girl Squad Storm and Stress" save the Magical Girl Squad.
  • The Scapegoat: Atelia scapegoats the warlocks for the ongoing destruction of the Magical Realm, declaring war on them in the process.
  • Science Is Bad: In the original series, they are the science side of the Magic Versus Science conflict, and the military dictatorship of the warlocks is portrayed as the villainous faction that seeks to wipe out the wizards, the traditional subgroup of their own people, out of a belief in the superiority of technology over magic. However, it is subverted in The Adventures, where some warlocks prove that science can be used for good as well; Magica from "The Secret of Dragon House" uses his computer skills to stop the Civilization Destroyer created by his Mad Scientist father, while the escape pods created by Weazel and Molza from "Magical Girl Squad Storm and Stress" save the Magical Girl Squad.
  • Shining City: In Wizard Kingdom, everyone can enjoy every possible food and numerous entertainments created by high technology. A device called Alpha Element keeps the temperature constant, making the city even more comfortable to live in. Given the silvery white metal architecture, it is also a literal example of this trope as well. However, it turns out that Light Is Not Good.
  • Spell My Name with a "The": Inverted. The English dub refers to Wizard Kingdom without "the".
  • Repressive, but Efficient: In Wizard Kingdom, everyone can enjoy every possible food and some entertainments created by high technology. Unfortunately, it's a military dictatorship run by Grande who plans to destroy the Human Realm in hopes of making a new home for his species to escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm. He also hasn't hesitated to imprison an innocent human or kill a prophet for disobedience no matter how right the prophet was. There's also the fact that the government forces the wizards to live in the barren Miche Village. It may well be one of the most benevolent dictatorships in the history of fiction, but make no mistake that it is a dictatorship.
  • Underground City: Wizard Kingdom is the capital city of the Warlock Realm located under the desert.

    Grande 

Grande (グランデ, Gurande)

Voiced by: Joji Nakata (Japanese), Jamieson Price note  (English)

Appearances: Original

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2bacabde_a20e_41b3_80d5_afa97042c976.jpeg
"The time of destruction is upon us. There is only one thing left for us to do. The creation of a new realm by the use of dark magic. Attention, all units! Gather all your strength and capture the remaining fairies. And bring me the True Book of Spells!"

The leader and general of the warlocks. He plans to destroy the Human Realm through dark magic in hopes of making a new home for his species to escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm.


  • Ambition Is Evil: His ambition for power has made him try to wipe the Human Realm clean to take over it as a new world for his own.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Grande has noticeably darker skin than most characters. This is never commented on or explained.
  • Armchair Military: He is the general of the warlocks, but he leaves his men to do all the actual work for him.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Downplayed and ultimately subverted. He does succeed in performing dark magic to save the Magical Realm, but this is because Arusu performed the magic of light to save Eva; and his real goal, to Take Over the World, goes unrealized.
  • Batman Gambit: He manipulates Eva into casting dark magic, relying on the fact that she has an inferiority complex due to being an Inept Mage. Earlier, he helps her Take a Level in Badass using a vision of a mysterious old man encouraging her to stay hopeful. When she loses her ability to use magic, he offers to give her back her magic with the True Book of Spells. She accepts the offer and ends up casting dark magic against her will.
  • Big Bad: He is the leader and general of the warlocks, who are (mostly) the mortal enemies of the witches and wizards. He is behind one of the most prominent conflicts in the original series because he plans to destroy the Human Realm through dark magic in hopes of making a new home for his species to escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He appears as a wise old man who encourages Eva to stay hopeful, helping her Take a Level in Badass. This, unfortunately, does not last, as he reveals that he plans to use her as the source of dark magic and drops the act to become Drunk on the Dark Side.
  • Cool Old Guy: His appearance in Eva's visions is that of a mysterious spiritual advisor. Subverted as he reveals himself to be her Treacherous Advisor.
  • The Corrupter: He manipulates Eva into performing dark magic with the promise to give her back her magic.
  • Dark Messiah: He presents himself as a savior for the warlocks, claiming that he is going to make a new home for them to escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm. However, what makes him a villain is that his Homeworld Evacuation plan involves destroying the Human Realm with the forbidden dark magic and that he really only cares about power.
  • Deal with the Devil: He offers to give Eva back her magic with the True Book of Spells, manipulating her into casting dark magic as the traitor among the witches. When Sheila demands to know what happened, he literally replies that "This apprentice witch has sold her soul to the devil".
  • Despotism Justifies the Means: As his final line reveals, he sees nothing wrong with driving many of his species to despair as long as he can rule everything.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: After he gets Eva to perform dark magic for him to create a safe haven out of the Human Realm, he loses what little restraint he had.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Grande first appears as a shadowy figure in a flashback, swallowing his prophetic advisor whole in front of the latter's young son, Sigma, for opposing his forbidden plan. It establishes him as a ruthless tyrant long before his actual appearance.
  • Evil Counterpart: Both Grande and the Grand Master of Witches are the supreme leaders of their respective groups. But he is the Big Bad who only looks out for himself, while she is the Big Good who truly looks out for her subjects.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: He plans to destroy the Human Realm through dark magic in hopes of making a new home for his species to escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm. However, as the Grand Master of Witches points out, he has made a grave mistake to do so by using the spell that drives everyone to despair.
  • Evil Laugh: When Arusu gives him the True Book of Spells as she promised, he pulls off a maniacal laugh.
  • Evil Old Folks: His appearance in Eva's visions is that of a mysterious old man.
  • Evil Overlooker: Grande, the Big Bad, overlooks the Magical Girl Squad on the DVD cover for volume 7 of the Japanese release.
  • Evil Overlord: He is the military dictator of the warlocks, and he's willing to kill one of his people for disagreeing with his plan.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Courtesy of Joji Nakata and Jamieson Price, he has a deep growl to reflect his status as the Evil Overlord of the warlocks.
  • The Extremist Was Right: Downplayed. His belief that performing dark magic is the only way save the Magical Realm was right, but this is only because it enables the savior to perform the magic of light, and subverted as he never had good intentions.
  • Final Boss: He is the last opponent that Arusu fights, fused with Eva and the fairies.
  • Founder of the Kingdom: Implied. According to Wil, Grande led the rationalization among warlocks for the use of machines instead of magic.
  • Glorious Leader: He has the Cult of Personality among the military, the promise of a safe new realm, and the claim that he's helping the witches and warlocks escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm, all of which cover the fact that he doesn't care about anything but making himself the ruler of all.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: He wears white and gold, signifying his status as the self-proclaimed Dark Messiah of the warlocks.
  • Homeworld Evacuation: He plans to destroy the Human Realm through dark magic in hopes of making a new home for his species to escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm.
  • Hypocrite: Implied. He keeps the wizards in Miche Village. However, he is able to show Eva visions of a mysterious old man just like Atelia can make Arusu dream of her father, implying that he actually can use magic at least to a lesser extent.
  • It's All About Me: Despite his well-intentioned claims, he really does not care who he hurts as long as it is not himself. In fact, he killed Sigma's Honest Advisor father for disagreeing with his plans. That is because his real ultimate goal is to make a new realm for himself to rule, and he's willing to to do anything to make that happen.
  • Large and in Charge: He is an imposing man and the Glorious Leader of the warlocks.
  • Light Is Not Good: He wears white and gold with a wing-like cape, giving him an angelic appearance. He's also the military dictator of the warlocks, ruthless enough not only to plan the destruction of the Human Realm but also to kill Sigma's father in front of the boy for disagreeing with his plans.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He shows Eva a vision of a mysterious old man to help her Take a Level in Badass, knowing she would do anything to get her magic back when she fell to the Mystical Plague. After getting the True Book of Spells and all the 100 fairy species, he offers the book to give her back her magic, manipulating her into using dark magic for him to wipe the Human Realm clean.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: It's unclear whether he showed Eva visions of a mysterious old man with magic or technology.
  • Meaningful Name: Grande means "large" or "great" in many of the Romance languages. He's Large and in Charge of the warlocks, making him equivalent to the Grand Master of Witches.
  • More Than Mind Control: He manipulates Eva into casting dark magic by appealing to the darkness inside her.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: He manipulates Eva into performing dark magic. This enables Arusu to perform the magic of light and save the Magical Realm.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Subverted. At first, despite his imposing build, he's a schemer and an orator, not a frontline combatant. Then he fuses with Eva and the fairies to become the Final Boss.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: Grande plans to destroy the Human Realm with the forbidden dark magic, claiming that it's so the warlocks can escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm. In practice, he not only oppresses the wizards, the other faction of his people, for preferring magic to technology, but he wages war against the witches as well, unwilling to let both share his world. His Establishing Character Moment even has him swallowing his Honest Advisor whole in front of the latter's son, Sigma, simply for opposing his Evil Plan. Furthermore, "Light Magic" reveals that his real goal is to make a new world so he can rule it by any means necessary, including — as stated in Japanese — driving people to despair with dark magic.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Downplayed. He plans to destroy the Human Realm through dark magic in hopes of making a new home for his species to escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm.
  • Satanic Archetype: He evokes Lucifer as an angel of light, wearing white and gold with a wing-like cape, presenting himself as the Dark Messiah of the warlocks, and being surrounded by the Everything Is An I Pod In The Future aesthetics of Wizard Kingdom. Near the Grand Finale, he offers to give Eva back her magic with the True Book of Spells, manipulating her into casting dark magic.
  • Sliding Scale of Villain Effectiveness: He is much more of a threat than the Special Task Force. He successfully gets the True Book of Spells and the 100 fairy species for Eva to cast dark magic. If Arusu had not cast the magic of light, his Evil Plan would have succeeded.
  • Spirit Advisor: Subverted. He repeatedly shows Eva a vision of a mysterious old man, but merely in order to make her perform dark magic, making him a Treacherous Advisor.
  • The Unfettered: He's determined to uplift himself at the expense of everyone else and will stop at nothing to achieve his goals.
  • Uncertain Doom: He is not seen alive or dead after the ivies sprout from Eva's body and devour him.
  • Villain Has a Point: Downplayed. His belief that performing dark magic is the only way save the Magical Realm was right, but this is only because it enables the savior to perform the magic of light.
  • Villain Takes an Interest: He sets his sights on the witch Eva due to her inferiority complex, which would enable her to cast dark magic. He shows her a vision of a mysterious old man who gives her the advice to make her magic stronger. When she lost her ability to use magic, he promises to give her the True Book of Spells, manipulating her into performing dark magic for him in the process.
  • Wise Old Folk Facade: Eva begins having visions of a wise old man who advises her to stay hopeful even in the bottom of despair, which causes her to become more competent at magic than before. Long after she's disabled by the Mystical Plague, he visits her once again and offers to give her back her magic with the True Book of Spells. As it turns out near the Grand Finale, Grande uses the visions to manipulate her into casting dark magic.
  • Would Be Rude to Say "Genocide": He claims that he wants to use dark magic so he can make a new home for the witches and warlocks to escape the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm. What he's not saying, however, is that his Homeworld Evacuation plan involves destroying the Human Realm.

    Sigma 

Sigma (シグマ, Shiguma)

Voiced by: Hiroyuki Yoshino (Japanese), Richard Cansino note  (English, Media Blasters)

Appearances: Original

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/03d5479f_d94d_42c6_af99_31dbcdcf83f9.jpeg
"I'll tell you one thing... I'm not a pawn of the Powers That Be. I'm neither an ally of the warlocks nor of the witches. I am who I am. I'm not a puppet of authority like you."

The enigmatic first individual warlock to appear in the series proper. Even though he works in the reconnoitering party of the warlock military, he joins Arusu and her friends as their guide on the Warlock Realm.


  • Ambiguously Absent Parent: Sigma has a dead father, but his mother is unknown. Given that he gets away with joining the warlock military at a young age, it is safe to assume that he has no family ties holding him back.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Sigma has noticeably darker skin than most characters. This is never commented on or explained.
  • Ambiguous Situation: He is heavily implied to have manipulated both the heroes and the warlock army, but it's not clear whether he knew a warlock soldier will paint Arusu and Sheila grey or not.
  • Anime Hair: He has white hair with two big spikes on the sides of his head and two little spikes on the sides of his ears.
  • Back for the Finale: He makes a cameo in the Grand Finale as one of the people who have their minds destroyed by dark magic, and later one of the people helping to rebuild the realm.
  • Bait the Dog: He does save Eva from the warlock army, but that is only to win Sheila's trust. He later saves Arusu and her friends from a white creature that the warlock army ride on, but it turns out that he nearly tricked them into helping Grande get the True Book of Spells.
  • Batman Gambit: He pulls one when he tells Eva that she must perform a "counterspell" to cure Arusu and Sheila of "deadly grey" with a flower in a cave and a spell on the True Book of Spells. He knew the book belongs to Arusu and she would use it to help Eva cure the latter two of the "disease".
  • Break the Haughty: He starts out as a selfish manipulator who looks down on Eva as a nuisance. He orders Sheila to make Eva confess where the True Book of Spells is, only for her to reveal that she only pretends to still be under his control so she can rescue Eva from Wizard Kingdom. When Sheila takes him hostage to flee Wizard Kingdom with Eva, the warlock police decide to discard him, telling him not to hold a grudge against them because he can only blame himself for his failure to bring the warlocks the True Book of Spells and a witch they need to cast dark magic. When Wil and his comrades come to Arusu's aid, he looks devastated that the old wizard refuses to take him along with her and her friends because he would only be a burden for them. Just after they flee from Wizard Kingdom, one of the police officers kicks him down from a height into the prison. By the time he makes a return, he has become a miserable prisoner with all his arrogance gone from him.
  • Broken Bird: He watched as Grande killed his father for warning Grande against the use of dark magic out of foresight about the coming of a savior. Since then, he's a cold and bitter Social Darwinist bent on depending on no one but himself. He quite correctly tells Sheila upon meeting that they have the same smell because they can only believe in themselves. However, he's a much worse Broken Bird than her, as his Friendless Background leaves him unable to understand how she also believes in Arusu and Eva now.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: He is a mysterious young boy who watches Arusu and her friends from afar in "Witches' Tradition" and "Happy Birthday".
  • Child Soldier: He's a preteen scout working for the warlock military.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Inverted. He is fully loyal only to his late father. However, while he pretends to obey Grande, he manages to betray Arusu and her group (nearly manipulating them into bringing Grande the True Book of Spells and a witch) and the warlock police.
  • Consummate Liar: He manages to mix truths and lies to such a degree that no one knows what is true and what is not about his revelations. Most of the things he tells Arusu and her friends are true, but he also lies that he is not helping the warlock military get the True Book of Spells and a witch they need to cast dark magic, though he only pretends to obey Grande and his true goal is to help his late father's prophecy come true. When a warlock soldier paints Arusu and Sheila grey, he manages to fool Arusu and her friends into believing that the two are going to die of "deadly grey" in 24 hours without an "antidote" made of a flower in a cave and a spell on the True Book of Spells. It takes Arusu and Sheila washing their bodies for everyone to realize that the "disease" isn't real in the first place.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: When he was very young, Grande killed his father in front of him for warning Grande not to destroy the Human Realm through the power of dark magic because a savior was coming.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Sigma has dark skin and white hair.
  • Defector from Decadence: When Sheila asks him who he is, he claims that he has been on his own side ever since Grande killed his father for disobedience. Lampshaded by Arusu, who tells Sheila that the warlocks are Not Always Evil. Subverted when it's revealed that he works in the reconnoitering party of the warlock military, almost helping Grande get the True Book of Spells and a witch. Double Subverted when it turns out that he has been plotting to betray Grande, find the savior his late father told about, and help her save the Magical Realm.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: The scene where he asks Sheila to escape from the world with him looks and sounds more like he's confessing his love to her.
  • Enfant Terrible: Sigma looks like he's in his late preteens or early teens, making him by far the youngest villain in the series. He also happens to be a manipulative Social Darwinist.
  • Enigmatic Minion: Out of the warlocks in Wizard Kingdom, Sigma is the hardest to read. While it seems he actually supports Grande's ideals and goals to destroy the Human Realm through the power of dark magic, he also guides Arusu and her companions to the Warlock Realm and even shoots his fellow warlock soldier to save them before sending red signals to the soldier. When Sheila asks him who he is, he answers her that he has been on his own side ever since Grande killed his father before his eyes for defying the ambitious dictator, turning him into a cold and bitter youth bent on depending on no one but himself. He only pretends to obey Grande in the warlock military, waiting in secret to find a savior his later father told about and help her save the Magical Realm.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He may be a manipulative Social Darwinist, but he respects his late father, who died opposing Grande's Evil Plan since he knows Grande is insane to think that only dark magic can save the witches and warlocks in their dying Magical Realm.
  • Evil All Along: He seems to be an Aloof Ally at first, only to reveal that he manipulated Arusu and her friends. It's ultimately subverted when it turns out that he is actually a Reverse Mole who seeks to find the savior his late father foretold about.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He pulls a Batman Gambit against Arusu and her group to bring Grande the True Book of Spells, manipulating them into believing that Arusu and Sheila are going to die of "deadly grey" in 24 hours unless Eva makes an "antidote" with a flower at the end of the cave and a spell on the book. He thinks that Eva's incompetence means that she'd give up trying to reach the end of the cave through warlock soldiers, only for Sheila to point out that her courage and kindness keeps her going no matter what. While he knows saving Eva would earn Sheila's trust, his belief that Sheila still believes in herself alone much like him leaves him bewildered when she throws herself alongside Arusu trying to save Eva from falling over the end of the cave.
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • Sigma and Sheila are both Broken Birds bent on depending on themselves alone since the loss of a parent in childhood, but while Sheila grows out of it thanks to the counterbalancing positive experiences influences given by her friends and mother, Sigma ends up becoming a villain as a result of having no one to teach him that he can trust other people. Both initially despise Eva for being an inept witch, but Sheila has become True Companions with her by the time Sigma underestimates how much she can accomplish. Both have a tendency to lie and hide their true intentions, which Sheila does so to save her friends, while Sigma does so to keep his opposition to Grande's Evil Plan a secret from his superiors. They use ruthless methods in pursuit of their noble goals; Sheila lets the warlocks attack Lennon to find the traitor among the witches, while Sigma manipulates people around him into helping him feign loyalty to his superiors.
    • Sigma and Arusu are both motivated by their absent fathers to save the Magical Realm; Arusu wants to make everyone happy with the magic her missing father taught her to believe in, while Sigma wants to help the savior prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm in honor of his father, who foretold her coming and defied Grande at the cost of his own life. They both share some connection to Jidan, with Arusu as his daughter and Sigma as his cellmate. But while Arusu is an All-Loving Hero who can think about other people, Sigma is a distrustful Broken Bird who cares about his father and no one else. Arusu is a Mage Born of Muggles, while Sigma is a native warlock from the technological Wizard Kingdom. Arusu has Atelia to support her despite her rebellious tendencies, while Sigma is eventually discarded by his superiors for failure. Arusu helps unskilled witches gain confidence in themselves enough to cast magic, while Sigma psychologically abuses Eva for her ineptitude. Arusu knows Eva has her own good points, while Sigma makes the mistake of underestimating her Silk Hiding Steel, believing the weak can do nothing on their own. Arusu befriends two wizards, while Sigma implies that he looks down on the wizards as the remnant of the old magical order instead of sympathizing with them as fellow victims of Grande's tyranny.
  • Evil Laugh:
    • Downplayed. He gives a little chuckle at the respective ends of "Sheila's Quandary" and "Cursed Magic".
    • When Sheila says the portal for the Human Realm is supposed to be a graveyard, Sigma mockingly laughs and says it's a blatant lie made by Grand Masters of Witches for generations.
  • Facial Markings: He has a light green vertical line through his left eye ever since he was very young.
  • Fantastic Racism: In the Japanese version, as he explains to Arusu and her friends about how the founders of Wizard Kingdom banished all the wizards, he addresses the wizards as "wizard-domo", implying that he looks down on them as the remnant of the old order. Later, when Arusu is about to give Nito food, he warns her that she should not be involved with the wizards, which she doesn't listen to. Subverted when he ends up happily joining the wizards after getting out of prison.
  • Foil: Sigma and Sheila both became distrustful Broken Birds to cope with the loss of their parents. But while Sheila (at first) hates her mother for abandoning her, Sigma actually seeks justice for his father who was killed by Grande for advising against using dark magic.
  • For Want of a Nail: He is what Sheila could have turned into if no one had been there to support her. While Sheila had her mother, Eva, and Arusu, Sigma became a broken Enfant Terrible out of the loss of his father at the hands of Grande.
  • Forced to Watch: He turned his head away as Grande killed his father in front of him for warning Grande not to destroy the Human Realm through the power of dark magic because a savior was coming.
  • Freudian Excuse: He is a cold and bitter Social Darwinist bent on depending on no one but himself ever since, when he was very young, Grande killed his father in front of him for warning Grande not to destroy the Human Realm through the power of dark magic because a savior was coming. Thanks to this incident, he had to live on his own and learned to believe in himself alone in a world where even his own leader can betray him.
  • Friendless Background: He has no friends ever shown, in contrast to Sheila, who does have an Only Friend in Eva even before warming up to Arusu.
  • Good All Along: He only pretends to obey Grande in the warlock military, waiting in secret to find a savior his later father told about and help her save the Magical Realm. When the destruction takes in Wizard Kingdom, he betrays the warlock military to save Arusu from getting sucked up by the destruction out of belief that she's the savior he has been searching for.
  • Good Eyes, Evil Eyes: He has ocean blue Tsurime Eyes sharper and narrower than Sheila. He is introduced as a mysterious, gruff guide who helps Arusu and the crew enter Wizard Kingdom. He eventually reveals himself to be a manipulative Social Darwinist willing to lie to and betray. Subverted after his Break the Haughty phase.
  • Harmful to Minors: As a younger child, he attended his father's meeting with Grande, where he saw his father Swallowed Whole by Grande for disobedience.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: When he was very young, his father advised Grande against using dark magic and foretold the coming of a savior, only to be rejected and killed by Grande for disobedience in front of him. He actually doesn't lie to Sheila about being a Defector from Decadence, as he plans to betray Grande and the warlock military when the time comes for him to help the savior prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm for his father's sake. However, in feigning loyalty to his superiors, he has manipulated Arusu and her friends, physically brainwashed Sheila, and proposed taking his cellmate hostage for the True Book of Spells, making him as ruthless and manipulative as his father's very killer.
  • Hypocrite:
    • When he first meets Arusu and the crew, he tells them that he is not a puppet of authority. In reality, he is working to bring Grande the True Book of Spells. Subverted when he betrays the military to save Arusu, revealing that he had been waiting to help his late father's prophecy come true while pretending to obey the man who killed his father.
    • He wants to help the savior prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm so that he can avenge his father, who foretold her coming and was killed in front of him by Grande for advising against using dark magic. Instead of sympathizing with the wizards as fellow rebels suffering under Grande's tyranny, he seems to look down on them, addressing them with "-domo" (the Japanese plural suffix that indicates disrespect when referring to other people) and telling Arusu not to be involved with them when she sees one of them, Nito, beg for some food. However, towards the end of the series, he doesn't seem unwilling to join the wizards alongside the other witches and warlocks.
    • His Social Darwinist ideology doesn't apply to his Disappeared Dad, for whom he grieves in secret. He sees the man as a tragic martyr who should be rewarded for defying Grande, the most superior of the warlocks, to help save the Magical Realm without the unholy power of dark magic.
    • He claims to live only for his own values and his own satisfaction, but his actions are actually motivated by a desire to get justice for his Disappeared Dad.
  • "I Can't Look!" Gesture: He turned his head away as Grande killed his father in front of him for warning Grande not to destroy the Human Realm through the power of dark magic because a savior was coming.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: He has ocean blue eyes. Fitting, considering his calculating personality.
  • I Lied: He admits to lying when Arusu and Sheila find out that the "deadly grey" thing wasn't real in the first place.
  • Implacable Man: Even getting imprisoned for failure doesn't stop him from trying to help his father's prophecy come true.
  • Irony: He seems to look down on the wizards, calling them the banished remnant of the old order with disdain and telling Arusu not to be involved with them by giving Nito food. As the Laser-Guided Karma hits him, Wil refuses to take him along with Arusu and her friends because he is a nuisance for them four. However, near the Grand Finale, he ends up happily joining the wizards after getting out of prison.
  • It's All About Me: He is proud to admit that he lives only for his own values and his own satisfaction, something he quite correctly believes he and Sheila have the same smell for. Deconstructed, as he explains to her, he has no one but himself to depend on ever since the death of his father at the hands of Grande.
  • Jerkass: He's arrogant, rude, despises Eva for her weakness, manipulates Arusu and her friends, and orders a brainwashed Sheila around. He gets better by the time he gets out of prison.
  • Jerkass to One: While aloof at best and faithless at worst to Arusu and her friends, he treats Eva with special contempt, repeatedly warning Arusu and Sheila not to take her to the Warlock Realm across the desert lest she be The Load on three of them. When Arusu and Sheila become covered with grey paints rescuing her from the warlocks, he tells them that her incompetence has doomed both of them to die of "deadly grey" in 24 hours, causing Arusu, who is normally a Genki Girl, to call him out for his callous treatment of her with Tranquil Fury.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He does save Eva from the warlock cavalrymen, though he is not hesitant in telling Arusu and Sheila later on that she is The Load on the team. Saving her from the warlock cavalrymen wasn't a genuine act of kindness; he only did that so he could win Sheila's trust. Subverted when even he loves his late father and is Good All Along.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Tweeny Witches begins as a Slice of Life about how Arusu adapts to the Magical Realm she's trapped in as an apprentice witch, although significantly Darker and Edgier than one would expect from a Magical Girl show. As soon as Sigma gets a proper introduction, the story takes a much darker turn as Arusu and her friends deal with the threat of the warlocks from Wizard Kingdom.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He believes in depending on no one but himself, tells Arusu and Sheila to leave Eva behind for her inability to take care of herself alone, manipulates Eva into blaming herself for letting her friends get a "fatal attack" (which is just washable grey paints), nearly manipulates them into helping Grande get the True Book of Spells, betrays their trust by revealing that he lied to them, and forces Sheila into bringing the warlocks herself as a witch they need to cast dark magic. He orders Sheila to make Eva confess where the True Book of Spells is, only for her to reveal that she only pretends to still be under his control so she can rescue Eva from Wizard Kingdom. When Sheila takes him hostage to flee Wizard Kingdom with Eva, the warlock police decide to discard him, telling him not to hold a grudge against them because he can only blame himself for his failure to bring the warlocks the True Book of Spells and a witch they need to cast dark magic. When Wil and his comrades come to Arusu's aid, he looks devastated that the old wizard refuses to take him along with her and her friends because he is a nuisance for them four. Just after they flee from Wizard Kingdom, one of the police officers kicks him down from a height into the prison. By the time he makes a return, he has become a miserable prisoner with all his arrogance gone from him.
  • Light Is Not Good: He has white hair and dresses in white. He's also Grande's Enigmatic Minion and a manipulative Enfant Terrible with the philosophy of The Social Darwinist.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: Sigma's father was an Honest Advisor to Grande, getting himself killed when he dared to advise Grande against using dark magic because, as a prophet, he knew a savior would save the warlocks from the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm instead. Sigma, on the other hand, is a Consummate Liar who guides Arusu and her friends to the Warlock Realm as a renegade warlock, only to almost manipulate them into helping him advance Grande's cause. In truth, he follows his father's footsteps as The Starscream, later betraying the warlock military to help Arusu fulfill The Prophecy as the savior so that he can avenge his father.
  • Love Makes You Evil: He ends up turning to villainy out of his love for his late father, who was killed by Grande trying to warn Grande against the use of dark magic out of foresight about the coming of a savior. As he reveals to Jidan and Arusu, while he pretends to obey Grande, he actually plans to help the savior save the Magical Realm in hopes of making sure that what his father did was not in vain.
  • Manipulative Bastard: When a warlock soldier paints Arusu and Sheila grey, he almost tricks Arusu and her friends into helping Grande get the True Book of Spells by claiming that the two are going to die of "deadly grey" in 24 hours without an an "antidote" made of a flower in a cave and a spell on the True Book of Spells. If Arusu didn't lose the book in exchange for having an ecoo fairy grant her wish, the whole plan would have succeeded.
  • Motivational Lie: He manipulates Eva into trying to cure Arusu and Sheila of their "deadly grey" by claiming that she must perform a "counterspell" with a flower in a cave and a spell on the True Book of Spells.
  • Mr. Exposition: He explains of the warlocks and the eventual destruction of the Magical Realm.
  • Mysterious Watcher: Keeps watching Arusu and her friends before fully revealing himself in "The Warlock Sigma".
  • Nightmare Face: He makes a very scary face at the end of "Eva's Courage".
  • Never Be Hurt Again: When he was younger, he saw his father killed in front of him for opposing Grande's nefarious plan. His initial interaction with Sheila implies that this has given him high regard for independence and distrust of anyone else, especially those in power.
  • No More Lies: After his Break the Haughty phase, he confesses everything to Jidan and Arusu.
  • Not So Different: He believes himself to be like Sheila because they can only depend on no one but themselves. However, while Sheila cares about Eva, Sigma considers Eva The Load, much to Arusu's anger.
  • Oh, Crap!: He screams "Those three!" out of shock that Arusu and Sheila would risk their safety trying to save Eva from falling over the cliff of Dark Mountain.
  • The One Guy: He joins Arusu and her friends as the only boy and their guide on the Warlock Realm.
  • Opportunistic Bastard: If you're in the camp that believes that he just took advantage of a warlock soldier painting Arusu and Sheila grey, then that would mean he is a quick-witted opportunist with the goal to help Grande get the True Book of Spells.
  • Perpetual Frowner: When he's not smirking, he wears a stern expression at almost all times.
  • Playing Both Sides: He is heavily implied to have manipulated both the heroes and the warlock army into helping him get the True Book of Spells. After he sends a red signal to a warlock soldier he shot to save Eva, the warlock army chases Arusu and her friends who have no fairy to give them at this point. Then he nearly tricks the heroes into giving him the book by claiming that Eva must perform a "counterspell" to cure Arusu and Sheila of "deadly grey" with a flower in a cave and a spell on the book. In the cave, he sends the same red signal to a white creature that the warlock army ride on to save the heroes from it.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: In the Japanese version, as he explains to Arusu and her friends about the wizards, he addresses them as "wizard-domo", implying that he looks down on them as the remnant of the old order. Later, when Arusu is about to give Nito food, he warns her that she should not be involved with the wizards, which she doesn't listen to. He seems to have gotten better near the Grand Finale, judging by the fact that he ends up happily joining the wizards after getting out of prison.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He does save Eva from the warlock army, but that is only to win Sheila's trust.
  • Psychotic Smirk: He smirks at the respective ends of "Sheila's Quandary" and "Cursed Magic", complete with a little chuckle.
  • Put on a Bus: He temporarily disappears from the story once one of the police officers kicks him down from a height into the prison.
  • The Reveal:
    • "Eva's Courage" reveals that he manipulated the heroes into helping him get the True Book of Spells.
    • It turns out that he has always been planning to find the savior his late father foretold about.
  • Reverse Mole: He has always been planning to find the savior his late father foretold about.
  • Sixth Ranger Traitor: He joins Arusu and her group as The One Guy and their guide on the Warlock Realm, only to reveal that he is helping Grande get the True Book of Spells and a witch the warlocks need to cast dark magic.
  • The Social Darwinist: He repeatedly warns Arusu and Sheila not to take their friend, Eva, to the Warlock Realm across the harsh desert because her incompetence would only make her The Load on the crew. He shows some signs of Evil Cannot Comprehend Good, underestimating how kind and plucky Eva is and finding himself bewildered when Arusu and Sheila throw themselves trying to save her from falling over the end of the cave. He also seems to look down on the wizards, calling them the banished remnant of the old order with disdain and telling Arusu not to be involved with them by giving Nito food. He seems to have abandoned this philosophy by the time he escapes the prison, judging from the fact that he ends up happily joining the wizards near the Grand Finale.
  • The Starscream: He barely fails to manipulate Arusu and her friends into bringing Grande the True Book of Spells and a witch, both of which the warlocks need to cast dark magic. In truth, he wants to help the savior prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm so that he can avenge his father, who foretold her coming and was killed in front of him by Grande for advising against using dark magic. He only pretends to obey Grande in search for the savior, later betraying the warlock military to rescue Arusu during the destruction of Wizard Kingdom because he knows only she can fulfill The Prophecy.
  • Tareme Eyes: He had round eyes when he was very young.
  • Thicker Than Water: He might be a backstabbing Social Darwinist, but he wants to honor his father who died warning Grande not to destroy the Human Realm through the power of dark magic because a savior was coming. Since then, he pretends to obey Grande in the warlock military, waiting in secret to find the savior and help her save the Magical Realm.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: By the time he escapes the prison, Sigma is no longer a manipulative Social Darwinist and even ends up happily joining the wizards he used to despise as the banished remnant of the old order no one should be involved with.
  • Troubled Backstory Flashback: He has one in "The Warlock Sigma" and "???", remembering how Grande killed his father in front of him for warning Grande not to destroy the Human Realm through the power of dark magic because a savior was coming.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: He works as one of the reconnoitering party, gets Arusu and her group to trust him by shooting his fellow soldier, displays an untrusting aloofness out of his cynicism ("you can only believe in yourself"), is abrasive in conversation (he addresses the wizards with "-domo", the rude suffix indicating plural), and proves to be such a Consummate Liar that no one is sure of his true intentions, all before even reaching puberty.
  • Tsurime Eyes: He has narrow, upwards arching eyes, signifying his cold personality.
  • Übermensch: He is proud to admit that he follows his own path because he can only believe in himself and thinks that authority is not worth obeying because of how Grande killed his father for disobedience.
  • Underestimating Badassery: When he follows Eva with Arusu and Sheila in Dark Mountain, he makes the mistake of believing that Eva has already given up trying to reach the top of Dark Mountain through warlock soldiers out of belief that a weak witch like her can do nothing on her own. As Sheila points out, Eva has one of the kindest hearts and continues advancing towards the top out of sheer determination to find a flower needed to cure her friends of "deadly grey".
  • Vague Age: He is obviously a late preteen like Arusu, but it's never stated just how old he is. It doesn't help that he acts like a sullen teenager and has a deep voice courtesy of Hiroyuki Yoshino and Richard Cansino.
  • Villain Has a Point:
    • He gives Sheila a speech about how one cannot blindly believe in people in power, stating his Dark and Troubled Past where his father was killed by Grande for defying the Evil Overlord. While he's a Consummate Liar and a Manipulative Bastard, he makes a valid point that being independent from these people is far better than having a Blind Obedience to their potential wrongness. After all, Sigma himself is a victim of these people. The problem is that his methods to fight back are as bad as the man responsible for his death.
    • Downplayed. While he does make a good point about how he and Sheila have the same smell because they can only believe in themselves, his Friendless Background leaves him unable to understand how she also believes in Arusu and Eva now.
    • He is right about Eva being too incompetent to take care of herself alone.
    • He tells Jidan that dark magic cannot save the Magical Realm from its destruction. Arusu and her friends eventually find out that dark magic only destroys everything, taking away the will of the people to rebuild and even their hopes.
  • Villainous Rescue:
    • In "Cursed Magic", he saves Eva from the warlock army to win her friend Sheila's trust.
    • In "Eva's Courage", he saves Arusu and her friends from a white creature that the warlock army ride on.
  • Villains Never Lie: While he is a Consummate Liar, he has his moments where he tells the truth. When Sheila asks who he is, he does not lie about his Dark and Troubled Past where his father was killed for rebelling against Grande. Later, she finds out in the Sanctuary that his statement that the truth to everything lies in Wizard Kingdom is true. He stops trying to deceive anyone after getting imprisoned. Near the end of the series, he tells Arusu that he has been working against Grande in secret to find the savior his late father told about, revealing himself to be Good All Along.
  • We Can Rule Together: After Atelia removes her from her position as the discipline officer in charge of the apprentice witches in district A, Sigma offers Sheila the chance to leave the world together in a way that looks and sounds more like he's confessing his love to her, telling her that they have the same smell as cold and bitter youths bent on depending on no one but themselves. Although she believes that what he says is right, she refuses his offer out of the belief that she needs to find out what it is that she should do with her life or else nothing would have changed even if she did accept.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He nearly manipulates Arusu and her friends into giving him the True Book of Spells and later physically brainwashes Sheila into bringing the warlocks herself as a witch they need to cast dark magic. In an attempt to get out of prison, he asks Tiana for a job to redeem himself for his failure, suggesting that the warlocks take his cellmate, Jidan, hostage to demand the True Book of Spells from the human's daughter, Arusu. However, as he reveals to Jidan, all of this is only to keep the pretense of obeying Grande. In truth, he wants to help the savior prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm so that he can avenge his father, who foretold her coming and was killed in front of him by Grande for advising against using dark magic.
  • Wham Shot: During his Evil All Along moment, the panel zooms in on his Nightmare Face, revealing that he is helping Grande get the True Book of Spells and a witch they need to cast dark magic.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He has white hair, and he also happens to be a manipulative spy. It's ultimately subverted when it turns out that he is Good All Along.
  • Wild Card: He is proud to admit that he's on his own side, not on the witches' side or the warlocks' side. Subverted when it turns out that he works in the reconnoitering party of the warlock military, almost helping Grande get the True Book of Spells and a witch. Double Subverted when
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: When Sheila takes him hostage to flee Wizard Kingdom with Eva, the warlock police decide to discard him, telling him not to hold a grudge against them because he can only blame himself for his failure to bring the warlocks the True Book of Spells and a witch they need to cast dark magic. Later, when he begs Tiana for a chance to prove himself useful in the plan he proposes to get the True Book of Spells for the warlocks, Tiana mockingly refuses to let him out of prison, reminding him that no one gives their traitor a second chance.
  • You Killed My Father: He wants to help the savior prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm so that he can avenge his father, who foretold her coming and was killed in front of him by Grande for advising against using dark magic. He only pretends to obey Grande in search for the savior, later betraying the warlock military to rescue Arusu during the destruction of Wizard Kingdom because he knows only she can fulfill The Prophecy.

Appearances: Original

The commander who sometimes stands next to Grande. To steal the True Book of Spells from Arusu, he leads an army to launch a full-scale attack on the chapel in the Witch Realm.
  • Bishōnen: He is tall, slender, pale, and has delicate features, with blonde eyebrows and narrow blue eyes.
  • Evil Laugh: He coldly laughs at Sigma when the young warlock asks him to have himself demand the True Book of Spells from Arusu in exchange for her imprisoned father, Jidan.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Tiana has a female name even though he's a warlock.
  • Light Is Not Good: He's a Man in White with blonde eyebrows, Icy Blue Eyes, and fair skin.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: He has narrow, pale blue eyes, which appropriately fits his cold personality.

    Luca 

Luca (ルーカ, Rūka)

Voiced by: Jin Urayama (Japanese); Kyle Hebert (English)

Appearances: Original

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5dc0e39d_76ef_4ccc_9d86_d4f32b016833.jpeg
A staff officer of the warlock military.
  • Anti-Villain: He follows Grande only because he believes that dark magic is the only way to save his people from The End of the World as We Know It.
  • Back for the Finale: He makes a cameo in the Grand Finale as one of the people who have their minds destroyed by dark magic.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Luca is a misanthropic commander working for Grande. He also loves his young son, hugging him out of joy when reunited after the destruction of Wizard Kingdom. In fact, he regrets Jidan's Disney Death once he learns that the latter's children are the ones who find his son.
  • Fantastic Racism: As he reveals to Arusu, he believes that humans don't accept anything they can't understand or believe in magic. When the special task force urges the witches to fight the warlocks, he promotes propaganda to paint the humans as a common enemy to both groups, claiming that with the True Book of Spells hidden by one of them, Arusu, they are an obstacle for dark magic to save all the citizens of the Magical Realm from The End of the World as We Know It.
  • Implied Death Threat: "If you want us to spare your life, then tell us the whereabouts of the book! If you don't, then you might end up dead long before you can save your father, Arusu."
  • Meaningful Name: His name equally evokes Luke, the author of one of the Gospels, and the Latin word "Luce" (a variant of "Lux") meaning "light". He can be described as one of Grande's disciples because, like his boss, he believes in dark magic as the only way to save his people from The End of the World as We Know It. As a warlock from Wizard Kingdom, he has a strong association with white and yellow.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When Arusu and Lennon reunites him with his young son, Luca regrets doing them and their father harm.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: When Arusu says the warlocks don't believe in magic, Luca tells her that he does believe in dark magic as the only way to save his people from The End of the World as We Know It. However, he seems to think that the Human Realm naturally will turn into a new realm once dark magic is activated. Things don't quite work out that way, as dark magic only destroys everything, taking away the will of the people to rebuild and even their hopes.

    Warlock Police 

Warlock Police (魔族警察, Mazoku Keisatsu)

Appearances: Original | The Adventures

  • Big Brother Is Watching: Implied. They seem responsible for the censorship on anything magical, as they ask Arusu what is wrong with her when they arrive right on time to hear her ask Sigma what happened to magic and the captive fairies in Wizard Kingdom.
  • Exact Eavesdropping: They arrive right on time to hear Arusu ask Sigma what happened to magic and the captive fairies in Wizard Kingdom. This leads them to ask Arusu what is wrong with her, suggesting that they censor anything about magic.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Subverted. When Sheila takes Sigma hostage to flee Wizard Kingdom with Eva, they decide to discard him, telling him not to hold a grudge against them because he can only blame himself for his failure to bring the warlocks the True Book of Spells and a witch they need to cast dark magic. Just after Arusu and her friends flee Wizard Kingdom, one of the police officers kicks him down from a height into the prison. Even though he has been a manipulative Social Darwinist, their mistreatment of him instead highlights their cruelty since they victim-blame him for being deceived by Sheila into thinking he's brought them the witch they need, all while he's still in his preteens.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Just after Arusu and her friends flee Wizard Kingdom, one of them kicks the preteen Sigma down from a height into prison.

  • Death by Origin Story: He advised Grande against the use of the forbidden dark magic, foretelling that it is a savior that would prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm.

This has driven the boy to prove his father right no matter what.
  • Inspirational Martyr: He foretold the coming of a savior, only to be killed by Grande for opposing the use of dark magic. This has turned Sigma not only into an anti-authoritarian Broken Bird but also into a combination of The Starscream and a Well-Intentioned Extremist seeking to help the savior prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm in honor of his father.
  • Morality Pet: Sigma is a manipulative Enfant Terrible with the philosophy of The Social Darwinist. His father is the only person he truly cares about, so much so that his father's death at Grande's hands for disobedience has driven the boy to prove his father right by finding the foretold savior that could prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: He advised Grande against the use of the forbidden dark magic, foretelling that it is a savior that would prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm.

  • Seers: He foretold that it is not dark magic, but a savior that would prevent the destruction of the Magical Realm.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He only appears in flashback, as he died before Arusu finds herself trapped in the Magical Realm. His prophecy that a savior was coming gave his son the entire motivation to do what he has done.
  • Swallowed Whole: Grande had him swallowed whole in front of his young son for foretelling the coming of a savior as a warning against the use of dark magic.
  • Token Good Teammate: He was the only decent member of the warlocks affiliated with Grande. As Grande's Honest Advisor, he advised Grande against using dark magic, resulting in his tragic death at Grande's hands.

After he helps Eva save the Witch Realm, he decides to live a peaceful life in Miche Village even though the village is the Fantastic Ghetto for the wizards.
  • Heel–Face Turn: By the time "The Secret of Dragon House" begins, he has already given up on stopping Jestor's Civilization Destroyer because Jestor programmed the mother computer to activate the program if destroyed. When Gigi tries to stop Dragon from destroying the computer, he tells Gigi to let Dragon do as he wants out of boredom. However, once he finds out that the activation of the program opens the firewall, he helps Eva save the Witch Realm out of a realization that there is hope all along.
  • Ironic Name: Magica's name means "magical" in Latin even though he is a warlock from the technology-using Wizard Kingdom.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He shares similarities with Sigma. They are young renegade warlocks from Wizard Kingdom. They watched as their treasonous fathers die leaving something important behind. They start out as cold and bitter as a result of their Dark and Troubled Pasts, only to become somewhat mellow at the end. They both end up helping one of the protagonists save the Magical Realm from The End of the World as We Know It.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: He acts like a sullen teenager trapped in the body of a late preteen, seems unfazed by the coming destruction of the Witch Realm by Jestor's last program, and tells Gigi to let Dragon destroy the mother computer, knowing it would cause the program to send Attack Drones.

A pair of researchers and scientists who find themselves trapped in a googoo fairy.

Wizards (ウィザード, wizādo)

    General 
The original group of warlocks that the warlocks in Wizard Kingdom diverged from some time in the past. Unlike the rest of the warlocks, they still practice their magical tradition even under oppression.
  • Child Soldiers: Averted. Unlike the witches and Wizard Kingdom, only adult wizards are shown fighting.
  • Dying Race: Even though they have managed to survive as a whole race for over 2 centuries, Wil laments how the military is erasing their culture and identity.
  • Fantastic Ghetto: The military dictatorship of the warlocks forces them to live in Miche Village ever since the establishment of Wizard Kingdom.
  • Magic Carpet: Unlike the witches, they ride around carpets.
  • Military Mage: The wizards have been fighting Wizard Kingdom for over 2 centuries.
  • The Remnant: A heroic example. They have been driven into the barren Miche Village ever since the foundation of Wizard Kingdom. They have been fighting Wizard Kingdom for 2 centuries.
  • The Revolution Will Not Be Vilified: They're a heroic rebel group dedicated to overthrowing the dictatorship of the warlocks. Technically speaking, this is a counter-revolution, as they are the last remnants of the old order that have been driven out ever since the foundation of Wizard Kingdom.

Appearances: Original

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/5854181f_c736_49ac_9672_02ba037cd255.jpeg
A wise old wizard.
  • Good Hair, Evil Hair: He has a white full beard, befitting his status as a wise old wizard.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Wil is a kind, friendly old wizard and a capable fighter by his own right. He's so compassionate that he actually doesn't want to fight the warlocks from Wizard Kingdom because they are his own people after all. When one of the warlock soldiers tells Arusu that he is never going to keep a promise to ask for the True Book of Spells in exchange for Jidan's safe return, Wil spares him for today even though he considers him to be a disgrace to the warlocks. However, he can be ruthless towards his enemies. He threatens to have his snake devour a soldier if the soldier refuses to tell him and Arusu where Eva is. When Arusu and her companions are escaping from Wizard Kingdom, he refuses to take Sigma along with them because the young agent from their enemy is too much of a nuisance. When Arusu goes to Wizard Kingdom to give Grande the True Book of Spells, he and his comrades rebel and threaten to kill Grande if their demands aren't met.
  • Hero of Another Story: His background as an old wizard fighting for his oppressed people would be a compelling story in its own right. However, the series covers only a fraction of his tale.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a black conical hat with a yellow circle in the middle and tails on the sides.
  • Old Master: One of, if not THE, strongest wizards alive and not afraid to show it off.
  • Old Soldier: He is a competent soldier despite his old age.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Implied. He lives with his young grandson alone, suggesting his son and daughter-in-law died before him.
  • Rebel Leader: As he reveals to Arusu in "The True Wizard", he leads a rebel group of wizards against the military dictatorship of the warlocks.
  • Red Is Heroic: As one of the most heroic characters, he wears a mostly red robe and fights against the oppression of the wizards by the military dictatorship of the warlocks.
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: He's an old wizard in a mostly red robe and a black conical hat.
  • Time Stands Still: He helps Arusu escape from the warlock police by stopping time for the warlock police.
  • Wizard Beard: He has a long white mustache and beard as the oldest known member of the wizards.
  • Wizard Classic: He has a Wizard Beard as the oldest known member of the wizards, wears a brimless pointed hat, and lives in segregation from the witches and the rest of the warlocks alongside his people.
