"Wait..wait..wait... Wh..WHAT IS THIS?", Madoka continued yelling toward the mirror as she walked forward, extending a hand and touching the window. Truth was, you weren't Madoka, Madoka was an anime character. You were now Madoka. - Episode 1 of Revolution.

With no memories of herself and her past life, Faust, the main protagonist /a/ controls, wakes up one day, only to find herself in the Madokaverse trapped in Madoka's body. Possessing nothing but the knowledge of the events of the anime, Faust decides to make it her life mission to save this timeline and the girls without resorting to using the anime wish.
After making contact with Madoka's mind, Faust vaguely remembers a bit of her past and herself. She once lived in a world where everyone had some sort of superpower, such as shooting fire or the ability to fly. Faust herself was looked down upon, made fun of, and excluded from everything, because she had what everyone thought a very useless power. Unlike anyone else, Faust has 1000 different minds or "voices" in her head that help guide her in making decisions. But since her power doesn't have any sort of practical use, Faust felt she was useless. One night, Faust dreamed that she wanted to make a difference in the world, when then suddenly a bright light engulfed her, beginning her journey. Faust then realized that she also had the power to leap into other people's minds. Faust's desire to make a difference, and Madoka being the center of everything in the Madokaverse, is what caused her to be trapped in Madoka's body. As Faust continues to fight to save the girls, her personality changes to be more similar to Madoka. The way Faust talked, her kindness to the other girls, her goals and desires, all became more and more similar to Madoka the longer Faust spent time in Madoka's body. This culminates in a dream sequence, where Faust and Madoka eventually come to terms to fully accepting each other, and agreeing that the both of them can change the future. This causes their minds to fully merge into one complete being.
Throughout Revolution, Faust's mind powers slowly developed and became more powerful. She learned to use Mind Bombs, in which she shoots an invisible dome of powerful force from her mind. Using her mind powers however cause her head trauma, potentially damaging her body permanently. Continued use of her powers however lessened the strain on her body. Faust's mind powers grew so powerful to the point that she was able to break causality, bringing TL3 Mami, Kyouko, Madoka, and Homura for the fight against Walpurgisnact, and merging all existing timelines into one. Faust was even able to entirely erase Walpurgisnacht from existence with just her mind. Faust reached the peak of her powers when she was able to access the powers of Madoka, Homura, Mami, Kyouko, and Sayaka without contracting in the battle against Ferocia, the witch of causality. The combination of those powers allowed her to defeat Ferocia and seemingly save the world. After Faust returns from the battle with Ferocia, Faust and Madoka's minds separate, with Faust also acquiring a body of her own in the form of Madoka's Goddess alter-ego. Despite the separation, Faust still maintains a similar personality and a small, weak connection to Madoka.
At the beginning of Rebuild, Faust is still the same person as she was when Revolution ended. She continued to live the rest of her life spending time with her only friends that she saved from a terrible fate in the events of Revolution. Rebuild starts off with her finally attending Mitakihara Middle School with the others, and the day started off seemingly normal, till suddenly, a new type of Witch, called an Infernal, appeared, about to attack the school.
Throughout the story, Faust struggles with her inability to help her friends and help herself. Faust lost most of her mind powers at the cost of defeating Ferocia and obtaining her separate body. She tries to handle the various events that befall her and her friends, despite her limited abilities. Because of this, she also comes in conflict with Homura, who believes that she is the source of these new witches. These struggles make Faust question herself as to who she really is. She thought she saved everyone, but now these terrible events happen. What was her purpose now? Why can't she do anything? Did she really save these girls? Who am I? The main theme of the story centers around these questions, as Faust desperately searches for a purpose and identity, and her attempts to protect the only people she has in her life. As she continues fighting both her outer and inner struggles, Faust develops her own personality, the voices in her head rarely influencing her, the similarties in personality between Madoka and her nonexistant. This can be evidenced when she no longer addresses each of the girls by Madoka's honorifics, preferring to call them informally by their first names. Her search for an identity also makes her grow to be more independant, as she repeatedly tries to handle everything by herself.
In the middle of the story, Faust makes a contract with Anbey, becoming a magical girl. Her outfit consists of a long, red and black longcoat covering her shoulders and arms, a black breastplate covering her upper body, while a black skirt falls beneath her knees. A belt is used to keep her outfit in place, wile brown, leather boots are used as her footwear. Her choice of weaponry is dual-wielding the Dreadmoon, a large, jet-black broadsword with jagged edges, and Veritas Luna, a long, sleek silver sword with runic engravings running down the blade. (Her whole outfit and weaponry is reminiscent of Archer/EMIYA from Fate/Stay Night). Although inexperienced, Faust demonstrates throughout the story that she is a very competent magical girl, thanks to her variety in powers.
Because of her unique contract with Anbey, Faust was granted a great power, her power associated with her friendship with the other girls. Each bond grants her a unique power that only grows stronger as her friendship with them grows (Reminiscent of Persona 3 and 4's Social Links). With Madoka, Faust has the ability to shoot her pink arrows. Faust can recover from her wounds like Sayaka. She can summon a great barrier as strong as Hitomi. She can rewind time like Homura, though with a range of only a couple of minutes. She has access to Kyouko's old powers, allowing her to create illusions and copies. With Mami, she can bind enemies with her ribbon magic. She can perform powerful healing magic via Yuma's bond. With the Pleiades Saints, she can directly copy any of her friends abilities, while her bond with Kazumi exclusively allows her to cast Limit Esterni. Oriko and Kirika grant her the powers of foresight and time slow respectively, and her mysterious connection to Anbey allowed her to regain her Mind Read and Mind Field powers.
Though most of her powers are reliant on the bonds of her friends, she has two powers not dependant on them. One is her Pseudo-Witch Barrier (or Reality Marblein Nasu terms.) The barrier at first resembled Ultimate Madoka's dimension as show in the anime. However, after creating the reality marble a second time, it came to resemble Starcrossed Place, the mysterious location that Faust repeatedly visits in her dreams. When her Pseudo-Witch barrier is up, the reality marble dramatically enhances her fighting abilities, increasing her speed, power, etc. She can also use any of her other abilities without worrying of corrupting her Soul Gem. However, summoning the barrier itself takes a great deal of magic, blackening her Soul Gem greatly. Faust's last and most powerful ability is her true weapon, the Spear of Destiny. By appearance, it greatly resembles the Lance of Longinus, the spear that pierced Jesus Christ at the cross. It is not known exactly how powerful the Spear of Destiny is. It was first and only used at the End of Magia, Faust forming her own Soul Gem into the legendary spear. With it, she defeats her own witch, causing a paradox. It is speculated that the spear's nature and power is to destroy miracles, as you could say Jesus being the Son of God is a "miracle," or that life in itself is also a miracle.
Though she is trapped in Starcrossed Place, Faust seemingly has the ability to communicate with Sayaka, though very limited. Sayaka first sees her in a dream, catching glimpses of Starcrossed Place. During the conflict between Oriko and Kirika, Faust manages to stop Sayaka from killing Kyouko, convincing her to try and negotiate. However, it fails, Sayaka forced to kill the two rogue magical girls. The last time Faust makes an appearance is after Homura and Sayaka finish watching Giant Robot 2. The blue-haired girl wonders how such a movie could get funded, to which Faust replies in her head "Don't blame me." Sayaka thinks it's Madoka's voice talking to her, but quickly dismisses it. Faust's motivations in Resonance is ambiguous, and it is unknown if she has any major role or influence.
Social Links and Abilities (Level Range 0 - 8)
Mikuni Oriko and Kure Kirika
After Faust learns of Oriko and Kirika's presence in this timeline and the magical girl killings, she and the girls decide to hunt the two magical girls. After Homura effortlessly knocks out Kirika with her superior time manipulation, Oriko makes her entrance and fights of Homura, Mami, Kyouko, and Yuma. With her prescience powers, Oriko manages to fend off the four girls for a little while. However, Homura kills Kirika, leaving Oriko shocked and wide open to an attack. Before her execution, Faust assures Oriko that she won't let anything happen to this city, that she wants to protect the people she care about. Oriko realizes what she's done up to this point has been for naught, and that Kirika died meaninglessly. Oriko then accepts her fate as Homura shoots an RPG at her and kills her.
With Kyouko and Yuma knocked out by Ayase, Faust is left with no means to defend herself. Ayase prepares to kill Faust, only for Kirika to appear out of nowhere and destroy Ayase's two Soul Gems, killing her. Oriko then appears and asks Faust will she not contract. Despite being bewildered at seeing Oriko and Kirika alive again, Faust takes Oriko's offer and joins forces with her. Although she learns that Oriko plans to kill both Madoka and Sayaka to seemingly prevent the end of the world, Faust manages to convince her that she will prevent them from contracting at all costs. One night, while Faust, Madoka, and Sayaka are staying at Mami's apartment while the rest of the girls go witch hunting, Faust detects an Infernal right outside. Oriko and Kirika shows up to rescue them and tells the girls to run away as far as possible while they handle the Infernal. Faust, Madoka, and Sayaka get caught however by Anbey's magical girl minion, Tamiko. Faust becomes stranded in Asunaro City while Madoka and Sayaka remain captive with Anbey. While in Asunaro City, Faust has a vision of Madoka and Sayaka (especially) being brutally tortured by Tamiko and Ayume. In the vision, she witnesses Sayaka die as she maintains many deep cut wounds before being stabbed in the throat, seemingly killing her. However, upon Faust's return to Mitakihara, Sayaka and Madoka are discovered to be fine. This was because of Oriko's prescience powers, saving Madoka and Sayaka before Faust's vision could happen.
Kazumi and The Pleiades Saints
Kazumi along with the Pleiades Saints makes their first appearance in episode 18, after learning the source of the familiars all around the world came from Walpurgisnacht at Mitakihara. Although Kazumi is friendly with Faust and the girls, the rest of the Pleiades Saints at don't cooperate with Faust at first, but eventually accept after it's apparent they themselves cannot defeat the super witch. Upon Walpurgisnacht's defeat, the Pleiades Saints returned to Asunaro City.
Upon being stranded in Asunaro City and gaining her new powers, Faust decides to look for Kazumi, the only trustworthy Pleiades Saint, for help. She stumbles upon the other Pleiades Saints, who are about to take another magical girl's Soul Gem. Faust manages to stop them, and after briefly lecturing them on their extreme, but good intentions, with force and OBJECTION, she manages them to temporarily get them on her side. Kaoru then takes Faust to Kazumi's place for the night. The next morning, Faust has breakfast with Kazumi, Umika, and Kaoru. Upon witnessing Faust chow down her breakfast with absolute disregard for table manners, Kazumi knows that Faust is a trustworthy person, which Umika and Kaoru eventually accepts. The three Saints then accompany Faust on her trip back to Mitakihara on Saki's order's to help the long pink-haired girl with Madoka and Sayaka.
In episode 12, Kazumi, Kaoru, and Umika are the first to ever hear of Faust talking about her past. They learn of Faust's severe memory loss, how she desperately tries to maintain those memories, the girls the only thing she has in this world to protect. Despite not knowing Faust for long, the three girls sympathize with Faust and embrace her. Kaoru tells Faust the truth of their orders as to why they came with her to Mitakihara, and says she doesn't want to fight her. She asks Faust if she would join the Pleiades Saints, to which Faust declines but insists that they spend as much time together in the present and forget about fighting. Meanwhile, in Hitomi's point of view, she is attacked by the other Saints, she being the next girl to be placed in the Freezer. Oriko and Kirika however intervene, save Hitomi, and drive off the Saints.
After Faust defeats Tamiko in episode 13 with her Pseudo-Witch Barrier power, the Pleiades Saints excluding Kazumi appear and confront Faust, ready to attack her. Before she attacks herself, Faust asks the Saints why they fight. Saki answers straight, to fight the system filled with contradictions, but it's clear she doesn't want to fight Faust. Umika and Kaoru also say the same, but proclaim they cannot fight Faust. Saki, not willing to fight against her teammates, let's Faust go, gives her a Grief Seed, and leaves with the other Saints, with Umika and Kaoru remaining with Faust.
One day, you wake up in Madoka's body, at the beginning of TL5. You have no memories of yourself, only knowing the events of the anime. You don't even know your own name. You eventually decide that you will try to change this future, and save the girls no matter what. You reveal to Homura your knowledge of the events, gaining her trust. With her by your side, you were able to work together with Mami peacefully and prevent her death in episode 3 of the anime. You also had Mami heal Kyousuke' hand to prevent Sayaka from contracting. You also were able to meet and communicate with Madoka within yourself, reveal everything to her, and let her entrust you with handling everything. She ask what is your name, with which you name yourself Faust. Faust's mind eventually merges with Madoka, making them one complete being. All was going well, but nothing is ever so simple. Kyouko makes her appearance along with Yuma and warns Faust of the magical girl killings going around town.
Faust already knew the killings were caused by Oriko and Kirika, so she gathers the girls and hunts for the two killers. She finds the two magical girls in a witch barrier, and although with the help of her friends she defeats and kill the two girls, Kyouko gets killed by the witch. Despite the sudden and tragic death, Faust saves Yuma from despairing, and still resolves to save this timeline. Fast forward just a couple days before Walpurgisnacht. Faust and Homura has planned and prepared for weeks, and decide to spend the remaining time relaxing with the other girls. Yet, relaxing is one thing fate will never grant. Mami is killed by a witch that impersonated Kyouko. Walpurgisnacht appears, but is MUCH stronger than the one even from the anime. In fact, all the witches Faust faced were more powerful than their anime counterparts, and even her friends were stronger than normal. She then realize all of this is because of herself.
Throughout the story, Faust discovers she has mind powers, and is the very reason why she is in Madoka's body in the first place: she leaped into her mind. As she struggled and fought, her mind powers developed and became stronger and stronger. However, those very powers were affecting the Madokaverse itself, creating distortions that made both witches and magical girls far stronger. Her powers became ridiculous to the point that as she and the others made their way to Walpurgisnacht, Faust accidentally sends everyone to TL3, witnessing Mami about to kill everyone after her Sayaka turned into a witch. Faust manages to stop her, and she convinces her and the other girls of this timeline to help the fight against Walpurgis. With Faust's powers, she then transport everyone back to your original timeline, with TL3 Mami and Kyouko gaining the memories of this timeline. With their help, along with the help of the Pleiades Saints, they distract Walpurgisnacht long enough for Faust to get close and erase her from existence with your own mind. The battle wasn't over however. Erasing Walpurgis suddenly pulled her into another dimension where she meets and fights the ultimate witch, Ferocia, witch of Causality. Temporarily, Faust was able to access the powers of her friends from the bonds she forged with them, using them and ultimately defeating Ferocia. Faust returns to Mitakihara, the world seemingly saved. Suddenly, she and Madoka separate and Faust acquires her own body in the form of Madoka's Goddess alter-ego. Although Faust lost the majority of her mind powers and the Puella Magi System remained intact and continued to exist, with the threat of Walpurgisnacht gone, she decides to live the rest of her new life peacefully with the friends she made.
It's been a couple weeks since the events of Revolution took place. Faust dreams of a terrifying witch attacking the town, the witch seemingly being herself. She wakes up, just passing it off as another nightmare. Faust continues to live her life with the girls, Mami being her roommate. It was Faust's first day of school today, and it continued like any other day, although Homura was acting very strange and distant towards her. Suddenly, Faust's eyes turned crimson red, detecting a witch. She runs outside the school to discover a witch without a barrier, which she names an Infernal. She immediately realizes the Infernals were of her doings, being created by the distortions set from her mind powers. These witches were born from a mixture of rage and grief, and don't use barriers to hide, preferring to attack anything in sight. Faust tries to handle the Infernal herself, wanting to gain independence and stop relying on the other girls. However, the loss of most of her mind powers restricted her from doing anything useful, and she was forced to be saved by Hitomi.
Being injured from the witch, Faust decide to stay home for the day, but her restlessness caused her to go out. She is attacked by a regular Witch, and still Faust is not able to do anything to help herself. She is barely saved by Mami, and falling ill due to seeing illusions, Faust stays back at home for the rest of the day. Before the day ends, Faust is notified by Kyubey that Ayase Souju is present in the city and is hunting magical girls. The next day, with Kyouko and Yuma's help, Faust decides to hunt for Ayase. Upon finding her, Kyouko and Yuma fight her and seemingly have the advantage, until Ayase reveals her dual Soul Gem personality and manages to knock out the two girls. The girl is ready to kill Faust until suddenly, Oriko and Kirika arrive and save her, killing Ayase. Oriko offers to work with Faust, remembering the words she spoke to her in Revolution. Despite her shock in seeing her alive again, Faust accepts her proposal. Oriko reveals her plan to kill Madoka and Sayaka, possibly seeing a future of them turning into immensely powerful witches. Faust convinces her to do otherwise, promising she will prevent them from contracting from all costs.
That night, Faust, Madoka and Sayaka stay at Mami's place while the other girls go Witch hunting when another Infernal appears outside the apartment. She and the two girls attempt to escape with the help of Oriko and Kirika, however, they are stopped and kidnapped by a mysterious magical girl named Tamiko. Faust briefly meets another magical girl named Ayume, and a sinister Incubator with emotions named Anbey before she is knocked out and left stranded in Asunaro City.
While in Asunaro City, Faust dreams of that same church you dreamed of back in Revolution. There she meets a mysterious girl who gives her the option of accepting new powers for the cost of her old ones, allowing her to "lose everything, and gain all." Faust accepts, growing frustrated with her inability to accomplish anything. The powers she gained are strengthened from the bonds she forged with her friends and will continue to grow stronger the deeper her bonds with them are. With her new powers, Faust decides to find Kazumi, the only trustworthy Pleiades Saint, to help her. Along the way, she meets the other Saints, and uses her powers to prevent them from kidnapping a magical girl, her confidence being restored. With some lecturing, Faust temporarily gets them on her side, and she stays at Kazumi's place for the night with Kaoru and Umika. The next morning, Faust returns to Mitakihara along with the three Saints, their orders being to help her with Madoka and Sayaka.
Upon returning, Faust discovers that Oriko and Kirika rescued Madoka and Sayaka, saving them before Sayaka dies from a vision she foresaw in Asunaro City. After speaking with the two girls, Faust confronts Homura, who's been harboring resentment towards her ever since the beginning. Faust learns that Homura believes she ruined everything, knowing that she is the source of all the problems. About to give up and turn into a Witch, Faust saves her once again, and brings her back into the light, restoring her relationship with Homura. Suddenly, a Soul Gem bursts from Faust's chest, revealing that she is a magical girl, and that the mysterious girl who gave her her powers was really Anbey.
Becoming worried about the recent turn of events, Faust goes out and looks for Hitomi with the three Saints, who went missing after she returned. While looking for the green-haired girl, Faust opens up to the Saints, revealing that she has memory loss and can only retain her memory for a couple of days. The only way for her to remember is to keep entries logged in a journal she's been writing in between the events of Revolution and Rebuild. The three girls sympathize with her, and Kaoru reveals the true intent of the Saints and asks Faust to join the Saints, to avoid fighting. Faust refuses, and insist that they spend what time they have left together. Suddenly, Faust detects a Witch and an Infernal, and she decides to take on the Infernal while the Saints deal with the Witch.
With her new powers, Faust defeats the Infernal with ease, and decides to find the Saints to back them up. Upon locating the witch, she stumbles upon Tamiko once again and fights her. Tamiko proved to be no match for Faust, as she reveals her power to create a Pseudo-Witch Barrier. All the Saints save Kazumi then confront Faust, ready to fight her. Kaoru and Umika manage to prevent it, the two girls have no intent on fighting Faust. After the rest of the Saints leave, Tamiko, who was cut in half and seemingly unconscious, unexpectedly attacks the three of them, stabbing Umika in the throat and crushing Kaoru's Soul Gem. Thankfully, however, Faust manages to use her powers to rewind time back to one minute, and kill Tamiko, preventing the other two from dying.
After burying the corpse of Tamiko, the three girls return back to Mami's apartment, where Faust meets Oriko and Kirika once again and learns that they saved Hitomi earlier from an attack by the Saints. Although she knows that Faust contracted, Oriko continues to work with her, unwilling to fight Faust and wanting to help her save this world. Kyubey appears, and notifies Faust of an event happening soon, Walpurgisnacht. Baffled, Faust angrily demands how is Walpurgisnacht appearing again, to which Kyubey responds its a different one. This Walpurgisnacht is literally a gathering of witches, Infernal Witches to be exact. This sudden turn of events shocks Faust, and makes her question whether everything she's done up to this point has really helped anything.
While trying to process everything that has been revealed to her, Anbey makes his appearance again and tells Faust how he contracted her for energy and for his sole entertainment. He also reveals that Jubey is working on the creation of the new Walpurgisnacht, the Freezer and Kazumi being the host. In order to stop it's birth, both Kazumi and the Soul Gems must be destroyed.
The next day, Faust along with Kyouko, Yuma, and Madoka go witch hunting, while the rest of the girls at Mami's apartment discuss about Walpurgisnacht. After defeating the witch and having a short bonding moment with Yuma, Faust decides to stay at Madoka's place for the night before the school festival tomorrow. During her stay, Faust finds and reads Madoka's campus notebook, that reveal that Madoka, despite everything Faust and Homura has said to her, has remained the same, blaming herself for her uselessness and wishing she could contract so she could help somehow. While taking a bath together, Madoka embraces Faust in tears, revealing her feelings about her own uselessness. Faust tells Madoka that she will do everything in Madoka's stead, and reveals about her memory loss and her theory that she will disappear once her memories fade entirely. Faust assures Madoka that she won't disappear until she knows she made the world a better place for everyone, but Madoka can't help but cry, not wanting the twin sister she loved to disappear. Madoka asks what she can do, to which Faust replies that just living and breathing is enough for her and everyone else. Madoka, realizing Faust's words, and thanks Faust, the bond between them maxed and unbreakable.
It's early morning and the festival has already started. After leaving the Kaname residence, Faust and Mami, along with Kazumi, Kaoru, and Umika decide to take a peek at the festivities. While they check things out, Mami reveals to everyone that Madoka told her that Faust will disappear. Although the girls were worried, Faust brushes it off, saying she will be fine. Kazumi and the two Saints then leave Mami and Faust alone, continuing to enjoy the festivities. Faust and Mami decide to head back home to get ready for the night festivities. While they eat some breakfast together, Faust ask's Mami's opinion of herself, to which Mami says that she's a close friend, and that they kissed. The blond reveals that while she would be ready to have a relationship with Faust, she can't go through it. Mami loves Faust, for keeping her company as her roommate, after being alone for so long. Because Mami knows Faust is going to disappear eventually someday, she doesn't want to be together with Faust. Despite that, she doesn't want Faust to disappear, the one person who's always been by her side. Faust assures her that even though she will vanish, she will live her life for the blond and all the other girls, because magical girls bring hope. Mami realizes Faust's words and embraces her, sorry for what she said and glad that she got to meet Faust.
After finally getting dressed for the festival, with still three hours of time left to spare before everyone meets up, Faust and Mami decide to go and hang at Sayaka's place for awhile. While on the way, the two girls meet Kyouko and Yuma at the Sakura Church, and Faust convinces Kyouko to go to the festival for Sayaka. Before making their way to Sayaka's place, Faust is interrupted by Anbey yet again. Faust decides to talk to the black Incubator, to see if he has anything useful to say. Anbey then reveals information that seems to contradict his previous statements: Faust is actually the host for Walpurgisnacht. He also reveals that Ayume, one of his underlings, is also a cultivated magical girl just like Faust. Anbey plans on defeating Jubey's Walpurgisnacht with Ayume, then letting Ayume turn witch for even more energy. Anbey then reveals one last kicker that pushes Faust over the curve: that her abilities are actually draining the magic and lifeforce from her friends. Whether anything Anbey said was truth is not certain, but Faust couldn't take the reveal and goes into an uncontrolled Rage Mode.
Filled with bloodlust, Faust wants to hunt down and kill Ayume, but because she has no idea where she is, she decides to kill the nearest target, Yuma. Faust manages to impale Yuma, but she is ultimately stopped and defeated by Mami and Kyouko. Regaining her sanity, Faust tells the two girls the truth as to why she went out of control, the black Incubator manipulating her emotions. Yuma, who healed herself from Faust's attack, believes Faust and forgives her, knowing that deep down, the pink-haired girl is a good person. Mami and Kyouko let Faust go, although temporarily, the bonds they share with Faust are broken. Faust then wanders aimlessly before the festival, thinking about what she just did. While she sits at a bench, Anbey speaks to her once again, although with a completely different personality. Sitting quietly, Faust listens as Anbey talks about how he nothing can stop Faust, and how he finds the human race amazing because of their soul and spirit. Whether this side of Anbey is genuine, or is just another way to confuse Faust, is not entirely certain.
Faust finally heads to the festival, wanting to celebrate despite what happened earlier. She meets Kyouko and Yuma who are together with Sayaka and decides to spend some time with them. Kyouko tells Faust that she already forgave her when Yuma did, their bond being restored. After spending some time with the three girls, Faust looks for Mami, finding her on the roof. The blond also forgives Faust, and they spend some time hanging out with Oriko and Kirika and then practicing their routine for a dance competition.
The PoV is then switched to Madoka's perspective. Madoka and Homura go together to the festival. As Madoka searches for Faust, she gets a phone call from Mami, telling her to find a safe place. Confused, Madoka asks what she's talking about, until suddenly, Ayume, who is under Anbey's control, attacks the two girls. Homura tries to cover Madoka, but both of the girls end up getting stabbed by the onslaught of rapiers. Just when Madoka was about to die, Faust rewinds time and manages to prevent the two girl's deaths, then engages Ayume. After meeting up with Mami and finding a safe place to hide, Madoka tells Homura to go help Faust. Even though the psychopathic girl contained 13 Soul Gems and also possessed a Reality Marble, Faust together with the help of Homura easily defeats and kills Ayume. Upon defeating Ayume, Anbey appears, and after an exchange of words, Faust figures out that the black Incubator is planning to overthrow his own race.
Although Ayume, who was apparently a host for Walpurgisnacht, was defeated, Anbey still proclaims he is always a step ahead of Faust. After the Incubator is shot dead by Homura, Faust falls down exhausted, realizing that the magic she used in the fight was draining the time left in her body, and that she will disappear tonight. While Oriko and Madoka go to Mami's apartment to fetch Faust's journal, Faust spends the rest of her remaining time with the other girls on the school roof. However, after noticing that Oriko and Madoka haven't come back, she rushes to find them, locating them trapped inside a Witch Barrier. With her powers, Faust saves the two girls and defeats the Witch easily. The use of her powers however took a greater toll on her body, and made her realize that she won't just disappear, she will turn into a Witch before she vanishes entirely. Homura attempts to do a Time Rest, being pained by seeing Faust, who is essentially Madoka, turning into a Witch right in front of her very eyes, like previous timelines. Faust manages to convince her to stay, saying she already saved Madoka, and that she isn't alone anymore. Faust then experiences great pain, her Soul Gem about to burst into a Grief Seed and form a Witch. Despite all odds, Faust manages to maintain herself, and calls Anbey to talk to him. Faust then uses the Team Mimic ability to her advantage on Anbey, regenerating her body's lifeforce. Faust then tells the other girls she won't disappear, seemingly averting her death. However, after an unspecified amount of time, Faust finds herself in Starcrossed Place, her being alive or dead uncertain.
Episode 22 reveals that the end of episode 21 was all an illusion. Faust takes a last journey to Starcrossed Place moments before her death, speaking to unknown voice. She despairs after answering the voice's question, her Soul Gem bursting into a Grief Seed and giving birth to the Witch of Infinity. The PoV is then switched to Madoka. With the help of Homura, the two girls manages to escape from Faust's barrier for the time being. Madoka asks Anbey what are his motivations and intentions, telling her it is exactly what just happened, turning Faust into a witch. According to him, the Witch of Infinity contains the same properties as Walpurgisnacht and will produce a "Domino Effect." Madoka wants to know if there's any way of saving Faust, in which Anbey replies that she shouldn't try unless she wants to die. Curious as to why Anbey cares about her being, Madoka asks why he wants her to stay alive, in which Anbey reveals that she inherited the burden of Faust. Kyubey then tells her specifically that she contains two souls, one of them being Faust's soul. This is because when Faust initially separated from Madoka in Revolution, while most of her soul moved into her new body, a small portion of her soul remained in Madoka, establishing the connection between them. However, since the "Faust" the girls know is dead, Madoka cannot communicate with Faust's soul. Rather, it has completely merged with her. Upon learning this revelation, Madoka decides to confront Faust's witch, the future that lay before her uncertain.
Upon re-entering the barrier with Homura and Hitomi, the three girls immediately wander into Candeloro's barrier, immediately realizing Mami is dead. They find Kyouko and Yuma fighting Candeloro and her familiars. Hitomi decides to help the two girls fight Candeloro, while Madoka and Homura decide to head further into Faust's barrier and confront her. Before confronting Faust's witch, Madoka hears her voice one more time, giving her a shimmer of hope. The two then enter, finding Oriko, Kirika, Kazumi, and Sayaka fighting the witch. Oriko and Kirika quickly fall in a matter of seconds to the Witch. In a moment of desperation, Madoka thoughtlessly runs towards Kazumi and Sayaka to save them, only to realize she inherited Faust's powers, and turns back time to just after Faust turned into a Witch. Madoka then transforms, wearing Faust's Puella Magi outfit and a white Soul Gem that contained Faust's remaining soul. She then searches the barrier to find Mami before she turns into a Witch.
While searching, Madoka finds Faust's journal and what appeared to be her room. After inspecting a suspicious drawer, Oriko, Kirika, Kazumi, and Sayaka then appear and reunite with her. The group then finds Mami alone fighting familiars, her Soul Gem almost completely corrupted. Madoka manages to bring back Mami into the light by showing her Faust's journal, making her understand Faust's true feelings. Mami, along with Oriko and Kirika decide to fight off the familiars, while Kazumi escorts Sayaka safely out of the barrier, and Madoka finds Homura and confronts Faust one final time. Along the way, Madoka chats with Anbey one last time, who reveals his entire plan: Destroy Faust's Witch to cause a paradox that will break the distortions Faust created and the bonded timeline. Madoka then reunites with Homura, who is shocked to see her in Faust's Puella Magi form, but resolves to protect her regardless. The two then confront Faust's Witch again, the final battle begins.
With Faust's powers and Homura's support, Madoka held her ground against the Witch, fighting with everything she had. One mistake would cost her everything, as she is still technically a normal human. After using quite a bit of magic, Madoka yells at Homura to toss a Grief Seed to her, only to get stricken by the Witch's dark tendrils. Madoka dies, with her last moments watching Homura cry her name in anguish, watching her best friend die before her yet again. Homura, completely stricken with grief, walks slowly towards Madoka's side in tears, ignoring the tendrils that then pierced her arms and legs. Right when she was about to turn back time once again, Madoka's body comes back to life, revealing Faust to still be alive. Upon waking up, Faust realized Madoka died, and it was all her fault. She continuously apologizes to Homura for what she has done, and resolves to fix everything in return, forming her own Soul Gem into the Spear of Destiny. Homura realizes what Faust is about to do and tries to stop her, only for Faust to knock her out cold. Faust then forms Homura's bow and shoots the Spear like an arrow. The spear kills her witch, causing a massive paradox. Everything that was born from Faust's distortions to Faust's existence then broke, the world devoured by an infinite black abyss.
Homura witnessing all of this, then finds herself in Starcrossed Place with Faust one last time. Homura asks Faust if they failed, to which she replied everything will be fine. The girl who looked like Madoka then confesses her regrets to the black-haired girl, but thanks Homura and everyone for being her friends, her family, and that she was glad she at least saved them. She asks Homura to protect Madoka and the rest of the girls in her place. Homura embraces Faust, trying to comfort her, despite the fact that she will cease to exist and never be with her and the other girls ever again. She then realizes that Faust was a friend just as much as the others were. She protected Madoka more than any of the other girls, she was her comrade. Homura did not want Faust to disappear upon this realization, but fate is never so kind. She realized she couldn't save her, just as how she couldn't save Madoka. Homura and Faust finally separate, the black-haired girl entering a new world. Emerging, she finds a young pink-haired girl with golden eyes before her. The pink-haired girl turns to her and smiles, saying, "Homura-chan, thank you."
Homura then finds herself alone in a train station, the lights flashing as her eyes fall into the ground before her.
Third Axis: Rage
Due to Faust's distortions in the universe, a third function was 'hacked' into the Soul Gem. Now, when a Puella Magi experiences intense fluctuations of rage, their magical capacity increases. This offers a boost in combat. However, reliance on this power can prove to be quite dangerous. Both Grief and Rage can coexist in the Soul Gem, making for catastrophic results. It can cause a large explosion, consuming the entire surrounding area. An overflow of Rage can cause something covered down below.
An Infernal is a Puella Magi that has been consumed by Rage. The Soul Gem becomes a bright red before becoming a dark brown. The Soul Gem explodes, causing the body of the original Puella Magi to disintegrate in the blast. The nature of an Infernal Witch is far different than that of a regular witch. Instead of hiding in a barrier, Infernal's will directly attack their targets. They aren't afraid of Puellae Magi and have no interest in hiding. They're a physical manifestation of the Puella Magi's hate for the world. Their behavior is linked to the source of their Rage. For instance, if Homura transformed she would destroy everything but Madoka. Anything that would cause the girl sadness, she would obliterate it without remorse.
Witch of Causality
Nature: To Balance
Ferocia is a witch that was given life after the erasing of Walpurgisnacht. Ferocia is essentially a super powerful Walpurgisnacht caused by Faust's distortions in the timeline. Upon being erased, Walpurgisnacht was sent to another plane of existence outside the bounds of reality. Faust fell victim to her own distortions, being teleported to the same plane. Due to the fact that Faust's fears gave birth to this monstrous distortion, it's her responsibility to defeat it. All of Faust's activity in the Madokaverse was balanced out by the birth of Ferocia. The despair caused by Faust's distortions take the form of Grief Seeds that pile into the witch, strengthening it to the point of some kind of god. Ferocia has properites of witches that were born, are born, and are going to be born from all timelines, creating the strongest being in existence.
Witch of Infinity
Nature: To Wonder
Faust's unnamed witch that appears at the climax of Magia Rebuild. It has a barrier and still hides from the world, meaning that it isn't as powerful as it seems. It's only strength is its constantly shifting barrier and form.
A place first visited by Faust seemingly though a dream, its purpose and location is unknown. The vast majority of the area is made up of an endless sea, with two small islands making up the only land, and nearby, a great white tree rooted in the water, extending all the way up into the gray sky. Faust at first emerges on one island's beach shore. From there, a small path running through a forest leads up to an eerie, yet ordinary church. By using the roots of the great white tree, one can cross to the 2nd island which is entirely made up of a large field of flowers. It is speculated that Starcrossed Place is an area not bounded by the Madoka universe or by time, as Faust at the end of Rebuild ends up staying at the mysterious place for hundreds of years in solitude.
