Powers

Because of Riz Hawkwood's wish, Tart is an abnormally powerful magical girl who Kyubey calls an "anomaly." She often destroys her enemies with blasts of energy, usually channeled through a magically-composed weapon. While incredibly powerful, these blast drain a great deal of her magic, taking a heavy burden on her. She has high offensive and defensive abilities, able to take direct hits from other magical girls without harm, and these abilities were enhanced even further after her near-death experience at the hands of Corbeau and her subsequent revival as a result of Melissa's wish. After her revival, Tart demonstrated the ability to conjure a flag standard that she could use to fire her most powerful attack "La Lumiere." Upon meeting with another magical girl named Pernelle, Tart was gifted a sword known as the "Épée de Clovis," which was forged with metal that had magical properties and was housed at the church of St. Catherine. This allowed her to channel smaller amounts of her magic into the sword and made it easier for her to conserve her magical power in battle.

When Corbeau used her Danse Macabre to infect both the English and French armies with bubonic plage, including any magical girls, Tart was able to use her abilities to summon a magical circle in the sky (similar to Madoka's attack), which rained down on the populace below. Everyone who had been infected with the plague were subsequently healed. During her final battle with Isabeau, Tart summoned a magic circle in the sky once again, this time opening like a gate from which powerful beams of light shapes like crosses shoot down, piercing her enemy. This ultimate attack was named "The Gates of Heaven", in contrast to Riz's "Gates of Hell" attack.

Observations

  • She is known as Jeanette by her friends and family, and referred to as 'La Pucelle' by the French soldiers and officials. The later is a shortened version of 'La Pucelle d'Orléans' (The Maid of Orléans), a common nickname for Joan of Arc. On it's own, 'La Pucelle' can be translated as "The Maiden".
  • She is a lightweight when it comes to drinking, as even a single cup of wine can turn her head and cause her to glomp onto her friends Riz and Melissa.

Etymology

Kyubey asked Jean to spell her name out since it would be easier for him, however Jeanne was not very literate and was only taught to write her name by the village priest. After looking at her name, Kyubey decides her surname "Tart" sounded better and decides to refer to her as that.
