An S-Class WH, said to be the strongest of his kind. He keeps watch on Tasha as per his promise to Tasha's master, Edea. After sending Tasha and friends on their mission to Bairong and Britain, he confronts the East Witch who has been spying on the Witch Hunters. He fights her and nearly gets killed, but Eunryu interrupts and thus both stop fighting.

    Tania Doberg

The S-Class Administrator of the North and Taras' older sister. She is considerably stronger, able to use Flower of Earth (a much, much bigger one) without a chant, only tapping the ground with her staff. Tania interrupts Tasha's fight with Lancelot and forces him to retreat without much effort. Tasha said he and Taras were a team, which prompted Tania to give him a lollipop. She mistook Tasha as a girl at first.

  • Absolute Cleavage: Her outfit gives a nice view of her ample bosom.
  • All There in the Manual: She's not, in fact, a witch. Extra material explains the Doberg family have shamanic powers over spirits. The Nice Hat just looks nice.
  • Aloof Big Sister: She acts like she doesn't care about Tarras and invokes utter fear within him with her mere presence but behind closed doors it's shown she's very protective of her brother and looks forward to seeing him, so much she forgets about everything around her when he is the only thing on her mind.
  • Attention Whore: Runs in the Doberg family line. When Tasha turned to look at Cooga for a spilt second, she responded by sending Cooga flying with a rock pillar and turning him into a basic smear on the wall meters away, then tells Tasha that she should never look away from her.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: She's the head of Doberg family for a reason.
  • Big Good: After Edea Florence's death and Vihyungrang's departure for training, she's currently the strongest WH at disposal at the moment.
  • Big Sister Bully: If Tarras's complete and utter fear of her wasn't your first clue then...
    Tania: He lost his fear since I haven't seen him in a while. He needs to be reeducated.
  • Big Sister Instinct: When asked between saving her brother and saving her entire team in a crisis she unhesitatingly always chooses saving Tarras.
  • Blue Blood: As a member of the Doberg family.
  • Boobs of Steel: Because crushing a steel door with one hand makes you more than qualified.
  • Combat Pragmatist: A firm believer that on the battlefield all enemies must be crushed without remorse, even when those like Guinevere, are not intending to fight at all.
    Tania: This is the battlefield. There are only allies and enemies. And enemies... are to be thoroughly and brutally trampled on by any means necessary. This is the Doberg's teaching.
  • The Comically Serious: When she interacts with her fellow White Class.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: As an Earth Spirit user, she can manipulate the earth and she's even more skilled than Tarras.
  • The Dreaded: For Tarras.
  • Expy: Tania resembles Olivier Armstrong from Fullmetal Alchemist.
  • Flat "What": Her reaction when she learns that Tasha is actually a boy. Probably also many a reader's reaction to her mistaking him for a girl in the first place.
  • Hypocritical Heartwarming: Only Tania can insult her younger brother, anyone else that does, well, it's just not a good idea.
  • Knight Templar Elder Sister: See above.
  • Lady of Black Magic: Tania is elegant and regal, and her uses of the energy of Earth Spirits have a sense of beauty to them.
  • Lady of War: She's capable of incredible destruction at a tap of her staff and great grace when in combat.
  • Ojou: As the head of the Doberg family.
  • Onee-sama: Type 3. She is regarded as such by Tarras but only out of absolute fear of her.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Seems to be a Doberg family trait.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Tarras's strongest techniques can destroy entire villages. Tania's basic attacks are equivalent to that.
  • Punch-Clock Hero: Cheerfully lampshades this when Eunryu asks her why she isn't investigating a ruckus happening outside at night.
    "I am a WH only from 9 AM to 6 PM."
  • Red Baron: Empress of the Land.
  • Staff of Authority: Not just for show, it also contains a sword too.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's rather tall compared to her subordinates but nonetheless very beautiful.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Her personality tends to shift from hard authoritarian to kind and respectable. Her first interaction with Tasha and Cooga involves punishing Cooga for disrespecting Tarras and giving Tasha a lollipop upon hearing he is a teammate of her brother.
  • This Cannot Be!: Alongside her Flat "What" after learning Tasha is a boy is her line, with a look of absolute shock.


An S-Class WH. He first shows up to save Vihyungrang from East's Surtr, then later shows up again to fight Ryuhwan.


An S Class WH Witch based in the Eastern District. She possesses a very haughty attitude, often ridiculing her fellow S Class, even managing to get reactions out of Tania Doberg. She is very close to her partner, Ian Borris, who is a fellow S Class that effortlessly manages to put with her attitude albeit treating her like a child occassionally much to her annoyance.

  • Bare Your Midriff: Due to her lack of a shirt.
  • The Gadfly: She constantly ridicules Tania for her overprotectiveness of her brother and enjoys getting a reaction out her.
  • Hypocritical Humor: She mocks Tania for sacrificing her entire team for the sake of her little brother but would do the exact same thing when asked what she would do in the exact same situation except if it regarded Ian.
  • Red Baron: Sensory.
  • Stripperiffic: Her WH uniform is quite revealing. She wears barely any clothing, only wearing a jacket, shorts, and a tiny bra.

    Ian Borris

An S Class WH based in the Eastern District. He is a very mature man who tasks himself to prevent Agnes from constantly antagonizing their fellow S Class teammates.

  • Badass Grandpa: He appears to be in very old age yet is one of the most powerful memberss in the WH organization.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: His WH uniform consists of a nice white suit.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has two scars on his face, one running down his face and another going horizontal crossing through the other one on the right side of his face.
  • Morality Chain: For Agnes. She is very fond of him, willing to sacrifice an entire team of WH at a moment's notice if he's in danger and he is the only one who is capable of telling her to stop annoying their teammates.
  • Red Baron: Space Cutter.

    D. Arlo

An S Class WH based in the Northern District alongside Tania Doberg. In the past he was forcefully experimented on by his Witch master to gain unimaginable amounts of power but he was able to escape her control. Sometime in the future he joins the WH organization and becomes an S Class WH and has an incident where he battles Tania Doberg and is brutally defeated. D. Arlo is known for his volatile and murderous nature towards witches, both enemy and ally, and must be under heavy surveillance and evacuate any premises he travels upon. The only person who can halt these impulses is the mere presence of fellow S Class WH Tania Doberg.

  • Drop the Hammer: In a past flashback, he has been shown utilizing a hammer in combat.
  • Fantastic Racism: He despises witches, whether they are ally or enemy, his hatred for witches is so great that he has to exert immense effort not to kill every witch in his vicinity.
  • Freudian Excuse: His hatred for witches stems from being forcefully experimented upon by his Witch master, which gave him unnatural abilities and left him in a permanent state of madness.
  • Mutants: Due to his body modifications he is regarded as one in the WH universe.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Tania Doberg states that despite emerging as the victor in her battle with him, she was never able to land a killing blow on his hardened body, even with her full strength. Considering that she is among the strongest WH, even among the S Class, this is quite the amazing feat.
  • Red Baron: Destruction.

    Edea Florence 
A late S-Rank WH, and Tasha's master.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: She's stated to be stronger than even Vihyungrang, who is the strongest S-Rank WH before his hiatus.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: She considers coming in to work twice a week to be too much, and that's the minimum a witch must work for WH.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: When she's not in battle, she's considerably odd.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: When some witch tried to threaten Tasha, her favorite toy, she just obliterated her in one hit, leaving huge crater behind.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Sees some un-named witch smacking Tasha around, responds with an attack that craters a significant portion of a city.
  • Emotion Control: She cast a spell on her to remain emotionally stable, since having her emotions get stronger could lead to her spells failing. When Tasha starts making her feel happy after giving her a Declaration of Protection, she decides to turn it off for three months. Next morning, she turns red and her heart is racing when she sees him.
  • First Love: Tasha was her first love.
  • Love Is a Weakness: Her feelings for Tasha ultimately ends up hampering and distracting her, which plays a part into why she gets beaten by Aria and dies.
  • Mama Bear: Edea mentions that witches take on apprentice since they cannot have children. So this comes into play when she finds a witch attacked Tasha. See There's No Kill Like Overkill for the result.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: Her evil side decides to murder Aria over Tasha.
  • No Body Left Behind: Her body breaks down into flower petals that blow away upon her death.
  • Posthumous Character: We only begin to know her story long after she's dead.
  • Science Hero: She's responsible for some of WH's gadgets and accomplishments, such as grafting witch powers to non-witches and making Invisibility Cloak that can hide or reveal its wearer by thought alone. She is also known to make experimental devices (this last one is her excuse for obliterating half a town to punish a witch who's bullying Tasha).
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Not that there's any doubt about it though. She's gorgeous as the Witch Hunter Edea, but at home, she normally just wears loose pajamas and dorky eyeglasses.
  • Split-Personality Takeover: She ended up creating what amounted to a mass of negative emotions that overtook her during her fight with Aria and injured Tasha badly.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: Has one made by all her negative emotions.
  • There's No Kill Like Overkill: Some witch tried to kill Tasha. When she found out, that's what left of her. Don't you dare to touch her pupils!
  • The Tease: Quite merciless in teasing Tasha, but otherwise she's kind to him.
  • Trash of the Titans: She didn't know the meaning of tidiness. Even after Tasha helped tidy up her house, she still tended to leave a mess after doing just about anything.
  • Unishment: When her pay is cut and she's officially placed in house arrest due to the aftermath of her encounter with the witch who was brutalizing Tasha, rather than be chagrined, she's overjoyed.
  • What Is This Feeling?: She starts having strong bouts of emotion when dealing with Tasha in Chapter 164, possibly love, only she doesn't recognize it since she usually uses magic to suppress.
  • Woman in White: There is a reason she is known as The White Witch.

How well does it match the trope?
