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.

Etymology

  • '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.

Personality

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").

History

Elsa hails from Lozère, France. She was confined and subjected to physical and sexual abuse[Notes 1] by close relatives. At some point, she came under possession of the Bavarian Illuminati as an experimental specimen by unknown means.

The Illuminati's experiments amplified Elsa's neural system, 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, giving her bestial characteristics and feral instincts. 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.[3]

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.

Quotes

  • "We've always, always been surrounded by walls, excluded from the human race. Used, betrayed... But still...we believed that someday we could find a way to bury this loneliness... If I'm going to end up as a monster... It would've been better if I never knew kindness!"
