Elsa Bête (エルザ・ベート Eruza Bēto?) is a member of the remnant group Noble Red, split off from the Bavarian Illuminati.


  • 'Elsa' is derived from 'Elizabeth', which means roughly 'I have pledged my oath to God'.
  • 'Bête' means 'beast' in French. It additionally references the Beast of Gévaudan (French: La Bête du Gévaudan). This beast is a man-eating werewolf that terrorized the former province of Gévaudan (modern-day département of Lozère and part of Haute-Loire), in the Margeride Mountains in south-central France between 1764 and 1767.


Despite being the most junior of Noble Red, Elsa is considered to be a notable genius and reliable organizer. She shows more respect towards her opponents than Vanessa or Millaarc, but Elsa is nonetheless willing to prioritize her and Noble Red's goals over the welfare of innocents.

Elsa has a verbal tic of ending most of her sentences with "de arimasu" (であります? lit. "this/that is" or "to be").


Elsa hails from Lozère, France. She was abused by near-relatives, who confined her and subjected her to physical and sexual abuse. She then came under possession of the Bavarian Illuminati as an experimental body.

Elsa's neural systems were amplified, allowing her great reaction speed and parallel processing, beyond the ability of average humans. DNA sequences were taken from various animals to reduce the strain on Elsa's body. Elsa is not as good in physical combat or prowess compared to her colleagues Vanessa and Millaarc, but she excels in quick-witted and flexible thinking.[1]

Despite these changes, Elsa was deemed as a worthless failure of a test subject by the Illuminati, similar to her companion Millaarc Cranstoun. During Elsa's time as an experimental subject, she met Millaarc and Vanessa Diodati.

After the collapse of the Bavarian Illuminati following Adam Weishaupt's death, Vanessa, Millaarc, and Elsa escaped their confinement. They met Fudo Kazanari, who gave them protection in exchange for cooperating with his plans, and became the remnant group Noble Red.

The bestial features Elsa was implanted with allow her to strengthen her nervous system as an element of her fighting style. In addition, she is able to attach various tails and similar devices into a socket at her hip, which she uses as her primary form to attack. She carries these devices around in a rolling case.

Elsa seems able to hide her wolf ears in her hair, but they appear to perk up when she is agitated. It also helps her to sense enemies around her.

To keep in top form, Elsa requires a steady supply of blood — specifically, blood of the rare type RH-Xxoyle, which is only found in one out of roughly a million people. See Panacea Formula for more details.



  • The official spelling of Elsa's full name can be briefly seen on a computer screen during XV Episode 3.
    • Despite this, Crunchyroll has translated her first name as both 'Eliza' and 'Elza'.
