"When you were a child, Loki, you were able to do anything. You were always in control... smart... strong... and skillful. It was good for me that I could hide behind your back. But now, I am a student of this academy. I am a Puppeteer aiming to be the Wiseman. Loki... I don't care if you hate me, but... I will fight. Because if I keep hiding in your back, I wont be able to protect anyone."
|Base of Operations||
Frey is a young lady, of average stature, and has a large bosom. She has white hair and red eyes, characteristic of a Promised Child. Her fringe is messy and of uneven lengths, framing her face. Just behind her left ear, she braids her hair; the braid is then tied into a high pony tail with the rest of her hair on the right side of her head. She puts on pink tie ribbons above her ears, while an additional black tie ribbon is used for her pony tail on the right.
With regards to her outfit, she wears the standard uniform as a student of the Academy. Additionally, she also drapes a purple scarf around her shoulders, which is held together with a gold pin. Due to her large bosom, her white blouse is revealing as it is not buttoned up. In the anime, she is depicted as having one small belt buckled around each upper arm, while this detail is not consistently shown in the manga. Meanwhile in the light novel, she is shown at least having a buckled belt on her right arm. The cuffs are also depicted differently: in the light novel, her cuffs flow freely with a small slit on the sides, while the manga has her cuffs drawn as folded and buttoned with cuff links.
Like other female students in the Academy, she puts on a black vest that emphasizes the chest. She wears a gray skirt, black thigh highs with suspenders, and buckled gray boots.
Family means everything to Frey, including her canine Automatons. When her parents were still alive, she had a loving relationship with them. Sadly after their deaths, she had immense guilt and blamed herself for causing their deaths because she believed she was responsible for the “accident” that killed them. Subsequently, she blamed herself for causing Loki to be chosen as Cherubim’s puppeteer. For many years, she thought that Loki hated her, and thus, the only family member she could confide her feelings in was Rabbi, her main canine Automaton. Her great love for her dogs has compelled her to the point that she attempted to assassinate Raishin, believing that Bronson would fulfil his promise and let her live with her beloved dogs again. After finding out that Yomi has died, she grieves for her, but does not blame Raishin. Instead, she thanks him for freeing her in what would be the last day of her life. Later on, she discovers the truth about her parents’ deaths, and is greatly devastated. However, thanks to Charlotte Belew’s assurance, she soon realizes that Loki never hated her, instead he was always looking out for her, albeit in a slightly cold fashion.
Frey is also helpful to Raishin. For example, she provides him with information of Henriette Belew’s identity, Charlotte’s disappearance, and so forth. She has helped to deliver lunches to him when he and Loki were hospitalised. She offers her help generously in finding Henriette, before the latter attempts suicide again. When Henriette expresses how confused and helpless she feels, Frey takes care of her by giving her the same assurance and care that Raishin gave to her when he decided to get involve and help her to defeat Bronson.
In several comical situations, Frey has also been shown to be rather clumsy, and clueless about things, such as getting trapped in her own traps, and accidentally blurting out that Raishin may be part of their family in future, which in turn hints of her feelings towards him.
Many years ago, Frey’s parents were killed by an Automaton that went berserk during their performance. Believing she was now alone, Frey cried, but Loki bravely held his hand out to her despite being younger, to assure her. The siblings later learn that Bronson arranged the “accident” to have their parents killed, in order to procure them. After being “adopted” by Bronson, who wanted as many Promised Children as possible, her heart was incorporated into a Magic Circuit, connected to Rabbi, that forcibly draws out Mana from her.
Sword Angel arcEdit
On the eve of Walpurgis Night, Frey has somehow snuck into Raishin Akabane's dormitory room, and while setting up a netted trap, got caught in it mid-air. She is then discovered by Raishin and Yaya when they return to the room. Set free by Raishin, she keeps quiet as he deduces that she was caught in her own trap. Apologizing, she randomly presents a lunch box filled with sandwiches to him, igniting Yaya's jealousy. Now very annoyed, Raishin demands answers, to which she replies she will assassinate him, shocking them both.
A while later, Frey sets up a large trap, comprising of a cage and several suggestive magazines. However, she absent-mindedly gets caught in her trap, attracting onlookers. To everyone's surprise, Frey's brother, Loki, and his Automaton, Cherubim appear. Resisting Loki's orders to withdraw from the Night Party, Frey is harshly slapped and bullied by Loki, causing her canine Automaton to growl at him. Loki then throws Frey against the cage, and orders Cherubim to attack. Getting up, Frey orders Rabbi to attack too, powering him with Mana. However, Cherubim blocks Rabbi's attack and just before it could strike its sword down on Rabbi, Yaya blocks it with her arm. Frey remains shocked as the Automaton doll and Raishin interrupt their battle.
Frey watches on as Raishin and Loki argue, only to be interrupted by Charlotte Belew and Sigmund. After Loki and Cherubim leave, Frey thanks Raishin for protecting Rabbi, and lovingly hugs her dog. Curious, Raishin asks what the siblings were arguing about, but Frey replies vaguely, claiming that Loki despises her, and leaves. Later in the evening, Frey appears at the reception office of the Academy, and upon seeing a well-dressed man, addresses him as "Father". Sympathetically acknowledging her talent and hard work, he presents her a photograph of several canine Automatons. Frey then enquires about a promise, and the man promises that if she carries out her duties and does her test well, she will be able to live with everyone again; his reply motivates her, prompting her to declare she is no longer doubtful.
One night, Frey sneaks into Raishin's dormitory room whilst he is asleep, holding a dagger. However, just before she can kill him, he tackles her. Frey takes advantage of Yaya's jealous reaction, by fooling the doll successfully that Raishin rejected her love, and thus she is able to escape. Later that day, Frey desperately pleads Rabbi to stop when the dog suddenly attacks Raishin, but the dog is uncontrollable. Realizing the dog is malfunctioning and seeing how helpless Frey is, Raishin throws a stun grenade to knock the dog unconscious temporarily. Seeing Rabbi regains consciousness, Frey hugs him, apologizing and thanking Raishin. She then helps to dress Raishin's wound, remaining silent even though Raishin probes for more information. Watching how crazed Yaya is in wanting to beat her up, Frey rides on Rabbi to escape.
Standing amidst a crowd of students, Frey watches Yaya in shock as the latter desperately cries out for Raishin and trips, after being injured by a ballistic projectile. A while later, accompanied by Rabbi, she waits at the school gates for Raishin to return. However, Loki appears and says that Raishin would not be coming back, remarking that she can concentrate on the Night Party without any distractions. Worried, she begs him to tell him what happened to Raishin, also asking if the attack on Yaya was carried out by him. Loki aggressively answers that that she could do nothing anyway if he attacked the doll. He adds on that their "Father" eliminated Raishin for intruding into the Orphanage.
Suddenly, Raishin appears at the gate, telling Loki he should not write off people; the latter leaves annoyed. As Rabbi sniffs Raishin, Frey notes that he has the scents of her canine friends on him, prompting him to apologize for Yomi's death. In tears, Frey says as much as she wants to listen to his details, the Night Party is about to begin. As they depart their separate ways, she tearfully thanks Raishin, and explains that Yomi was never freed from her dark prison for years, thus she thought it would be fun to go out with Raishin when he freed her. Bowing, she promises to talk with him more later, and leaves, while he is left anguished. Later that evening, Frey attends the opening ceremony of the Night Party.
On the second evening of the Night Party, Frey and Rabbi appear to battle Loki and Cherubim. Despite Loki's questioning, Frey refuses to back down, claiming she will fight because if she keeps hiding behind Loki, she will never protect anyone. Immediately, she transfers Mana to Rabbi and orders it to attack. However, Cherubim proves too strong for the dog, causing Frey to plead with it to hang on. Afraid for Rabbi's life, she hugs it tightly, and just as Cherubim attempt to strike them down, a force field emerges to protect them. Realizing Rabbi is being uncontrollable, Frey tries to communicate with it, but she is suddenly covered in cuts. Horrified and in pain, she screams as Rabbi becomes more aggressive. Soon Sigmund figures that Frey is forcefully drawing Mana out of herself, and alerts Charlotte that if this continues, Frey will die.
As Loki and Cherubim continue to battle Rabbi, Frey suffers more cuts, to which Charlotte observes that even her blood is turning into Mana. Seeing that Rabbi is about to pounce onto Loki, Frey begs it to stop. Suddenly, something hits the dog, saving Loki in time. Weakened by her injuries, Frey collapses. Having arrived at the scene, Raishin promises to save both Frey and Loki, and as he props up his female schoolmate into a sitting position, she feebly tries to reach out for Loki and Rabbi. Without warning, she is held in a chokehold position by Raishin, and subsequently loses consciousness, in turn causing Rabbi to collapse and rupture. Both Puppeteer and canine Automaton are then taken into the surgical theatres. A while later, Kimberley informs Raishin and Yaya that Frey's life is no longer in danger, while Shoko Karyusai tried her best to save Rabbi.
Shoko explains to Raishin that Frey was the one who went berserk in the battle, causing Rabbi to become uncontrollable and his "heart" to rupture. She then explains that Frey's heart is incorporated into Rabbi's Magic Circuit, and essentially, Frey and Loki are artificially created Promised Children. Meanwhile, Frey continues to rest in hospital, as Loki watches over her.
Several hours later, Frey watches over Rabbi as it remains unconscious and bandaged. She is startled when Raishin expresses his concern whether she should be resting more. Seeing how sad she is, he assures her that Shoko is the best puppet maker, and thus hopes that the dog will recover. Upon hearing from him that Charlotte loves dogs, she comments that the latter is similar as they both treat their Automatons as family; Yomi was like a second mother to her too. Breaking into tears, Frey blames herself for her parents' death and for being weak, apologizing to Rabbi, her deceased mother, and everyone she loves. Recalling what Bronson did to Frey, Loki, and other Promised Children, Raishin becomes furious at the injustice, and unexpectedly grabs the girl's shoulders, telling her she has done nothing wrong. Stunned, she watches Raishin leave the room.
Returning to the hospital ward, Frey is surprised by Charlotte, who informs her that Raishin is not in, and asks about Rabbi's condition. Saddened, Frey replies that should her dog die, she will be all alone, but Charlotte refutes her and comments that Raishin has left for the Orphanage. Without warning, Kimberley appears, dressed in her Cruzada cloak, and is already aware of Raishin's and Yaya's departure. Explaining to the girls that she has a supervisory responsibility, she invites them to follow along; Charlotte rejects it, while Frey accepts the offer.
Having arrived at the Orphanage, Frey watches Loki and Raishin battle Bronson, from a roof top. Remembering Kimberley’s instructions that she can only quietly watch because she does not have Rabbi, she silently prays for Loki. She expresses disbelief when Bronson manages to block off Cherubim’s attack with a dagger. Later on, she tries to comprehend how Lucifer manages to deflect and hit Yaya with its condensed exhaust, likening it to a bullet being hit by another bullet in mid-air with calculated precision. Seeing how quickly Lucifer wounds Loki, Frey gasps, covering her mouth. While Loki confronts Bronson for betraying Frey, she recalls Charlotte telling her that she is not alone, as Loki has always be there for her ever since their parents were killed. Bursting into tears, she realizes that Loki never despised her. However, she and Loki are rudely awakened when Bronson blurts out that he prepared the “accident” to have their parents killed. Driven by anger, Loki immediately swings at Bronson, but is thrown into a tree instead, resulting in a head injury. Frey cries for the nightmarish scene to stop, and desperately prays for someone to save them. Hearing Bronson speak to Raishin, she is surprised to see the latter is still able to get up despite his injuries.
Feeling guilty over her assassination attempt on Raishin, she is unable to comprehend why he is willing to help them, and becomes curious if he and Loki have come up with a strategy. She is in disbelief when Bronson claims that his actions were meant for the advancement of Science, and grieves that her parents were killed for the man’s selfish reasons. Her sorrow is interrupted when Raishin suddenly releases a strong magical aura, ordering Yaya to attack again. During the battle, Cherubim and Lucifer are wielded together in their sword forms, leading her to believe the boys have a chance at victory, but Lucifer is unaffected and transforms back into its original form. She becomes worried when Yaya looks close to being cut down by Lucifer, but is astonished that the doll smartly used gunpowder to disperse the condensed heat on the machina’s blade, and watches in amazement as Raishin gives Yaya the final order to obliterate Lucifer, ending the battle. However, both boys collapse instantly, causing her to worry, as Yaya helplessly pleads for her puppeteer to wake up. Unbeknownst to the doll, Bronson aims a gun at Raishin. Fortunately, Kimberley stops him in time by throwing a dagger to his arm, and he is arrested shortly after. As the Cruzada organization attend to the injured boys, Frey is finally allowed to run to them.
With Kimberley’s permission, Frey is allowed to visit the boys at their ward, and thanks them for what they did. Afraid the boys would break out into a fight because of Raishin’s sneaky comment, she instantly stops them, and let slips that Raishin could be part of their family in future, leaving everyone stunned. Embarrassed, she dashes out of the room, while Yaya attacks Raishin out of jealousy. A while later, Frey meets Raishin at the roof of the hospital, and confesses that Loki was the one who shot the large projectile at Yaya. However, Raishin surprises her when he decides not to report the incident to the Executive Committee. Feeling determined to turn hers and Loki’s hearts back to normal, Frey tells him of her plans to press on with the Night Party. Pleased by this, Raishin offers a handshake as a sign of support and friendly sportsmanship, to which she accepts.
Elf Speeder arcEdit
For the next couple of days, Frey brings lunches to Raishin at the hospital. One day, she encounters Raishin and Yaya while being on her way to visit Loki at the hospital. Seeing the shattered window that Yaya had jumped out of earlier, she asks about it, and Raishin explains they saved a girl who attempted suicide. After hearing the description of the girl, Frey suggests it is Henriette Belew, Charlotte’s younger sister, who transferred to the Academy a week ago. Frey adds on that Henriette has attempted suicide six times, but was always saved in the nick of time. She also shocks them with the news that Charlotte has been missing since the night before. Without warning, the clock tower is suddenly blown up from an attack, and amidst the chaos, Raishin notices Charlotte and Sigmund flying off from the smoke.
A while later with the help of her canine Automatons, Frey finds Henriette on a tree before she could attempt to hang herself. Afraid of the dogs, Henriette screams for help, attracting Raishin’s and Yaya’s attention, who quickly rush over to the scene. However, when Raishin threaten to set the dogs on Henriette to force her into answering his questions, Yaya and Frey misunderstand him as a pervert with a bestiality fetish, and confront him, while Henriette escapes. Concerned, Frey asks if they should give chase, but Raishin prefers to try and find Charlotte first without her help. Despite being hesitant to leave him alone, she still follows his advice to prepare for the Night Party first.
After Raishin has been rescued from the debris Sigmund created, Frey dashes over to see him, relieved that he is alright. She watches as Henriette thanks and apologizes to Raishin, telling him not to get involved in their troubles anymore. Later that night, Raishin and Yaya abduct Henriette from her dormitory room to bait Sin out, causing Frey, who witnesses this, to panic and run off. However, she returns quickly with Loki, Cherubim, and Rabbi, just in time to save Raishin from being killed by Sin. Together, they battle the butler, but he escapes soon after. She is shocked when Raishin collapses as a result of his severe injuries. At the hospital wing, she watches Yaya bow in gratitude for saving Raishin’s life again. Just as Loki is about to leave, she kisses him on the cheek, thanking him for protecting Raishin. Feeling embarrassed by her kiss, Loki warns her not to get caught up in Raishin’s troubles too, making her smile as she appreciates how protective he is of her.
After Raishin has woken up, he finds out from Henriette that Charlotte is about to kill the Headmaster. Wanting to stop her, and with Henriette’s plea for help, he leaves his ward to find Yaya. Moments later, Frey encounters and assures them that she will take care of Henriette. Appreciating her initiative, Raishin also asks her for a favor, which is borrowing one of her dogs. Glancing at her sleeping dogs, she hugs Rabbi and quickly checks to make sure the boy is not up to any weird fetishes, much to his annoyed denial, and lends him a dog.
Hight Mana Affinity: As a Puppeteer, Frey possesses Mana in her body. Her mana affinity is also due to her being an artificially created Promised Child. In fact, she is capable of controlling not just Rabbi, but four other canine Automatons at the same time, during battles.
Dog Whisperer: Frey is able to understand her dogs well, either through sensing or listening to their barks. As a result, she can instruct her dogs to carry out tasks more efficiently. For example, she instructed her dogs to find Henriette, and within a few moments, she can pinpoint her location by understanding the dogs’ barking, even though the Academy is a large premise.
Rabbi (ラビ Rabi): A canine Automaton that is Frey’s main Automaton, and Yomi’s son. Originally a normal dog, it has the Sonic Magic Circuit installed into it by D-Works. As its Magic Circuit and Frey’s heart are linked, it is capable of receiving Mana from her. However, if it receives too much Mana from Frey, it will go berserk, thus endangering both lives.
- First Aid Kit: Frey always carries basic first aid items, such as bandages and medical tape, because she often gets injured, due to her clumsiness as noted by Raishin. She helps to dress Raishin's wound when he becomes injured due to Rabbi's sudden and uncontrollable attack.
