Personality[edit | edit source]

Gerheade is a mysterious, strange, and aloof fairy, but takes her job as advisor and the Fairy tradition very seriously. Like most fairies, she has a distaste and mistrust towards humans, which leads to her original animosity towards Ban. This hate she has may stem from the betrayal Rou and his comrades dealt with her during the Holy War. As harsh as she seems to be, she greatly cares for her fellow Fairies and wants to protect them.

During the Holy War, Gerheade is shown to be almost completely different from what she is right now with King himself being befuddled by the drastic contrast in her character. At that time she had a more kind, cheerful and innocent personality as she felt great empathy for others regardless of race, including demons, as she felt saddened by Ludociel's plan to use the demon citizens as hostages and bait though reluctantly accepted it as she was desperate for the war to end then. Her empathy allowed her to befriend humans then like Rou and even trusted them more so than now, as even after she was shocked and wounded from the betrayal of him and his comrades, she still sympathized with his loss that drove him to kill Stigma in revenge to point of trying to plead for his life to her older brother.

However, Rou and the rest of the humans attacked Stigma and began to kill everyone in the forest.

After Rou killed him, he and Gerheade talked about Rou's past that led him to take revenge on Stigma, just as Gerheade took everything as punishment for doing nothing to Ludociel's actions. When Gloxinia appears to be witnessing the horrible scenario, Gerheade tried to explain what happened but could not prevent Gloxinia from murdering Rou.
