Appearance[edit | edit source]
Levi has a short and slender build with long brown hair which she commonly wears in a high pony tail held together with a shuriken-shaped hair ornament, bangs that are usually parted to one side, mostly covering the left side of her face and light blue eyes.
Her normal attire is mainly the Biblia Academy school uniform with some unique differences and her signature long white scarf over her back often reaching to her lower calves with tassels that she always wears. While most students have the school jacket, Levi wears a vest version over a white long sleeve shirt with a plaid bow tie in a butterfly knot instead. On her lower half, she wears a plaid mini-skirt, brown loafers, a black sock that covers her right calve and a black leg warmer that conceals above her left knee. She also has two leg bands, with the right band worn higher than the left, which is put on the leg warmer and around her knee. Occasionally, Levi will carry her katana behind her waist.
Sorcerer Mode: In her Sorcerer Mode, Levi dons a white skirt, a sleeveless shirt under a tail vest wrapped around by a black cloth. She also wears a pair black finger-less arm length gloves covered with white bands, white thigh socks with cuffs, and dark knee high boots. Additionally, Levi now sports a mask that covers the lower half of her face and wields twin machetes. She also appears to have a new black scarf.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Levi is an easy going, confident young woman, customarily declaring herself as a ninja and displaying her skills. She rarely does become agitated or nervous, typically acting casually in most situations. She is even able to remain calm and functions normally even while at a disadvantage. During her skirmishes against Lieselotte Sherlock and Lugh, she was able to calmly think and fight against them. Although, there have been times where she gets uneasy and even embarrassed. She is also quite kind and friendly, usually getting along with almost everybody. Even those who act hostile to her, such as Mira Yamana or Lugh, she will still act cordially regardless of their actions. Even though she was temporarily beaten by Lugh, she didn't hold any grudges and acted normally with her. Additionally, Levi can be quite playful and flirty, sometimes acting perverted to tease or trick her friends which amuse her greatly. Furthermore, she also enjoys observing them and watching them react in different situations. Overall, Levi appreciates her friends and cares deeply for their well being, supporting and watching over them.
Despite her mischievous behaviors, Levi has a serious side, especially when the people she cares about are in danger. During those times, she is very reliable, willing to fight and protect others when they are unable to battle. During Yui Kurata's Breakdown Phenomenon, Levi acted more seriously to save her, a change that didn't go unnoticed by others. Other times she can become focused is when she faces strong opponents such as Akio Fudo and Lugh.
Furthermore, Levi possesses a strong but cold-blooded mentality, killing the most out of the Trinity Seven through assassination missions. She is even capable of killing friends if they become dangerous without hesitation while remaining friendly. On one occasion, after discovering she was trapped in Yui's dream, Levi decisively committed suicide in order to escape. Levi is also not above using her friend's weaknesses against them in battle.
Levi usually pose a sign with her two fingers "V" symbolizes sometimes not to let her friends worry. Ironically she has been taught this sign by her mortal enemy and her former friend Ryuki in the past.
A notable trait of Levi is that she won't become envious of anyone, and her strong point is acting independently without having any expectations of others, which is why she's a ninja and her research Thema is Expectatio in the Invidia (envy) archive.
Chronology[edit | edit source]
History[edit | edit source]
Much of Levi's past is unknown. However, same with the rest of the Trinity Seven, she is hinted to have experienced a hard life. At some point, she would enroll at the Royal Biblia Academy and become the Trinity Seven of Invidia, as well as achieve a perfect success rate in both missions and assassinations.
Mahitotsuhime[edit | edit source]
Before she joined the Royal Biblia Academy, Levi is worshiped as the Mahitotsuhime. Her eye can see the death of everything. Because of this, Levi is feared and sealed by the village, secluded from other humans. Levi herself also lose any interest in interacting with humans because she always knew their death.
The first person she opened up to is actually a girl who looks a lot like Charme, who is tasked to serve Levi's needs. Despite knowing about Levi's power, she still wants to become friends.
But the Shadow Ninja attacked Levi's village and killed everyone. After that, Levi lived with the Shadow Ninjas and become close to both Ryuhime and Ryuki.
Both Ryuhime and Ryuki lived a peaceful life ever since in a normal village. As Levi was in a store, winning perfect scores at shots getting many gifts as rewards, making Ryuhime jealous of her. Ryuki notices that Levi already knows the deaths of everyone including hers and Ryuhime's, as she wonders how much pain it causes her. However Ryuki also notices Levi's expression never changes, Levi agees so, and Ryuki suggests to start with a pose. Ryuki shows her to raise two fingers as a sign of peace whenever Levi jokes around so every time when Levi show's this pose at a target they would smile. Levi tries the pose and to her surprise she didn't know so, and she smiles which Ryuki is happy about it. Ryuki tries to calm Levi about her seeing the deaths of everyone, Levi agrees so and Ryuki mentions the magic ninja shadows of Wu Xing will guide the deaths correctly for everyone. Ryuki also mentions ninja's deaths and place are even more important. Ryuki says to Levi, when she dies, she will choose the way to do it, to less her worries. Ryuhime suddenly interrupts and says she will decide her own death, mentioning she will not die before Levi and Levi laughs in happiness.
At some point Ryuki would challenge Levi to a fight to the death. Despite knowing her death, after she was killed she stabbed Levi's hidden eye that can see deaths of everything and stole it to go beyond death wanting to surpass all other ninja's including the magic king. The eye magic power manifested and absorbed Ryuki whom she disappeared into thin air in the process.

- Main article: Night Episode to Lost Memory: Apathy & Exterminate
Summoned by the Headmaster, Levi is given a mission to befriend a cardinal class mage sealed in an underground dungeon. Although Levi readily accepts the mission, she also understands the Headmaster's underlying alternative of assassination if the mage becomes dangerous. Nevertheless, Levi immediately enters the dungeon, encountering numerous traps and deadly monsters on her path. The ninja easily outmaneuvers and defeats them as she heads to the center of the dungeon. Arriving in a room full of monsters with a young girl with the Phantom Cross Eyes, Levi is overwhelmed by a clown monster that appears faster than her and able to regenerate from her attacks. However, Levi eventually discovers that she is currently dreaming and commits suicide to escape despite the risks. Upon awaking, she sees the same girl and cautiously approaches her before asking the girl if she would become friends with her. Levi is once more dragged into the girl's dream where she meets Yui. Despite Yui's apathy towards the idea of friends, Levi manages to capture her interest for the sake of research while noting their similar philosophies.
Afterward, Levi would occasionally visit Yui alone in the dungeon, sometimes playing pranks on her as well.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Shamanic Spell[edit | edit source]
Levi's Thema's are Expectatio and Spero from the Invidia Archive and her branch of magic is Shamanic Spell, incorporating magic of nature with her ninjutsu and herself. This allows her to perform a wide variety of skills such as manipulating wind or creating illusions of great complexity. Levi uses many of these techniques to trick and confuse her opponents while attacking them in secret. Described as the one closest to nature, Levi has also been noted to be the reincarnation of the founder of Shamanic Spell.
Additionally, Levi's physical and ninjutsu abilities are also very high, being able to perform many superhuman feats. Using her exceptional speed, she can throw a kunai for a certain distance, then outrun the weapon and catch it midair. Her endurance, which is considered to be one of her strong points, allows her to fight for long periods of time, even while injured. During her battles against Lieselotte and Lugh, she was able to pressure them despite having her left arm damaged on both occasions. Furthermore, she is a skilled swordsman, as well as being proficient with many other different types of weapons. In her fight against Lugh, she comes up with the idea of using threads to trap Lugh from using her light speed.

When Lieselotte attempts to dispel the Trinity Seven's magic, Levi, along with Mira, are the only ones able to avoid her magic. Moreover, Levi is also an expert escape artist, being able to elude many enemies' traps. She once threw her own body so that she could escape Lieselotte's ensnarement.

Her keen observation skills allow her to study those around her, discovering their weaknesses as well as diverting their focus onto something else. Her tenacity allows her to remain strong, and perform the necessary actions to win. On one occasion, she unhesitatingly took her own life to escape Yui's dream and even attempted to use Mira's feelings for Arata against her.

Her magic and strength alone is capable enough to defeat a Code D Dragon single handily.
As a battle magus, Levi releases and manages her magic at all times. By maintaining her magic consumption at zero, Levi releases her magic all at once when fighting and defending.
Outside of combat, Levi is also quite adept at stealth and reconnaissance. Using her magic and physical abilities as a ninja, Levi is able to disappear and hide her presence in almost any situation. Mainly, she uses this skill to spy on other's activities and weaknesses. Levi can attach a thread to unsuspecting individuals to maintain awareness of their location. Additionally, as part of her ninjutsu, Levi is dexterous at setting traps without others noticing. She is also proficient in ventriloquism, able to throw her voice from another direction to confuse others.
Although rarely used, Levi left side which is always hidden, has "The Eye of God of Calamity" which senses the upcoming deaths of anything. However her right eye is the "Divine Eye of the Unusual God" which she uses to perform her true Last Crest.
Notably, Levi possesses an unknown magic similar to the Trinity that not even Radix, a legendary grimoire containing all knowledge, has a record of.

Even currently, they have continued to enjoy each other's company, playing off one another. Levi is one of Arata's earlier supporter, protecting and guiding him as he learned magic in the beginning. During their rescue of Yui, she helps him gain control of his magic and motivates him to master his abilities. Since then, Levi has developed expectations for him and eagerly watches over him. Likewise, Arata greatly respects her abilities and appreciates her assistance. They both care for the other's well being, willing to fight for each other and work together as a team. Notably, Levi is the one member of the Trinity Seven that Arata has yet to seen naked; he considers her form to be his "final frontier."
Trinity Seven[edit | edit source]
Yui Kurata- Out of the Trinity Seven, Yui is probably the closest to Levi due to their similar Themas. Levi doesn't put "expectations" on anyone, while Yui doesn't develop "friendship" with other people. Because of this, they have developed a close friendship. During Yui's seclusion, Levi would often visit her in the labyrinth, although she would also play pranks as well. The both of them also care very deeply for each other, willing to fight and protect one another. When Yui's magic became unstable and caused a Breakdown Phenomenon, Levi would become concerned and serious, even choosing to stand in Mira and Akio's way. Likewise, Yui became very emotional when Levi was severely injured by Lugh, unwilling to let Levi continue to alone. After Arata helped saved Yui, the two of them have continued to be good friends and enjoy interacting with each other.
Akio Fudo - Levi and Akio are good friends, but also rivals due to their mutual enjoyment of fighting. As a result, they have great respect for each others abilities and strength, always looking forward to challenging one another to settle their rivalry. During Yui's Breakdown Phenomenon, Levi would challenge Mira and Akio which Akio happily accepted. However, regardless of their competitiveness, the two of them would continue to get along. Their similar casual and carefree personalities allow them to remain friendly and enjoy each other's company. Lately, the pair would be teamed up for the school festival competition.
Allies[edit | edit source]
Charme Kirigakure - Charme is an underclassman of Levi from the Royal Biblia Academy who joins her mission to retrieve Murasame. The two first encountered one another when the Headmaster introduced Charme when he initially assigned the mission. Despite their lack of initial interactions, Levi immediately recognized Charme and the two would quickly establish a team although Levi was still suspicious of the reason Charme was included. Charme greatly admires the ninja for her reputation and strength as a Trinity Seven, although she was also quite surprised with Levi's perverted and easygoing nature. As such, Charme is often the more serious of the two but still trusts her upperclassmen's judgment. Likewise, Levi often causing Charme to become embarrassed, often commenting on her large bosom and even once suggesting they become familiar through the bath. Nevertheless, in spite of their short duration working together, the two care for one another, which Levi is willing to protect Charme from harm.
However, upon the revelation that Murasame resides within Charme, the weapon also reveals that she has placed her seal on Levi to steal the Trinity Seven's magic in order to regain her strength.
Iscariot[edit | edit source]
Lugh - As a member of Ish Kerioth, Lugh is an enemy of Levi during their attack on the Royal Biblia Academy. Due to Levi's injury and Lugh's overwhelming strength, Rogue dominates the majority of their fight, critically injuring Levi on numerous occasions. However, despite their affiliation, the two of them do not bear any ill will towards each other. During most of their battle, Levi would remain casual towards Lugh, even after being beaten by her. Likewise, even though she is somewhat puzzled by Levi's confidence and mischievousness, Lugh also acts nonchalant to the ninja. Furthermore, the two of them respect each other's abilities and strength. Although, Lugh did look down a bit on Levi, but became serious when Levi was able to pressure her.
Wu Xing Shadow Ninja Force[edit | edit source]
Ryuhime Kashin - As an associate from her past, Levi and Ryuhime would reunite during their pursuit of the Mythical Weapon Murasame. Notably, both were candidates for the position of the Trinity Seven of Invidia, although Levi would ultimately receive the title.

Ryuhime, in particular, is quite determined to defeat Levi due to her killing her sister Ryuki. Though after learning the truth behind Ryuki's death, she forgave Levi.
