Etteilla (ETTEILLA) is a witch that appears in the twelfth episode of the Magia Record Anime. It is Mel Anna's witch form. Since two days after episode 12 aired, it appeared in the return event in the game.
The witch of fortune tellers. Her nature is disclosure. A witch who single-mindedly attempts to uncover the truth within the various destinies that are consolidated in her barrier. Able to gaze across past, present and future, she feels joy at the fact that all destinies are hers alone to know, and ceaselessly turns over the tarot cards atop her table. If a visitor were to arrive, she would believe them to be someone who’d recognize her power, and would gladly unveil the truths enclosed within them. But the truths that become visible aren’t always happy– and on top of that, accepting them as truth will prompt the witch to turn you into her apprentice, rendering escape impossible. If you were to oppose her, it’s said that she would show you every suffering imaginable.
In Magia Record
- It appeared in the A Voice From Beyond That Strokes the Ears event . This witch is currently exclusive to this event, as it was killed in the event story.
- The Doppel form was implemented at the same time.
The Doppel of disclosure. Its form is a fortune teller. The master of this emotion is both client and contractor. She believes her Doppel, which predicts one’s destiny in perfect clarity, to be her true inner power, and she does not deny any of the destinies it predicts. This Doppel is connected to its master’s wrist and back, and constantly measures her pulse in order to synchronize with it. By fully synchronizing their movements and senses, the two of them can predict an utterly unshakable destiny. The result of the prediction is displayed in the Doppel’s eye, and is determined by the type and direction of the tarot card shown within its pupil. Barring a truly extraordinary effort, it’s impossible for the master and Doppel to escape from a destiny they’ve predicted.
