EpisodesMagia Record Game, Episode 1

The Witch of Sandboxes. Her nature is Immersion. This Witch has strong preferences and never compromises. She is trying to build an acceptable sandcastle, but she can never satisfy herself. She has destroyed and rebuilt her castles so many times she doesn't even remember what she wanted to create in the first place. When she does manage to make a nice castle, she feels much better for a while, but ends up destroying it again. She looks like a young lady, but acts like a little child. If she is interrupted when she is playing with her sand, she cries and goes on a rampage.

EpisodesMagia Record Game, Episode 1

Minions of the Witch of Sandboxes. Their role is Toy Trains. These Familiars are always playing amongst themselves. A quirk of theirs is that as they roll around, all of the things on the ground stick to their bodies. As they do this their Witch collects the debris without them noticing. When their Witch is coming up with a plan for her next castle, they come to her aid. But soon they realize that it is impossible to satisfy her, no matter how hard they try, so they get bored and stray away.

Memoria Card Description


A minion of the Sandbox Witch; its duty is pretending to be a train. They are always frolicking and playing with each other. Due to its physical makeup, when it rolls around while playing, anything on the ground that it rolls on will get stuck to its side.


  • Zenobia is a Greek name meaning 'daughter of Zeus'.
  • Her name is a reference to Septimia Zenobia, a Syrian queen who held great power in her kingdom after her husband's death. She cultivated an intellectual environment in her court, governed a multicultural and multiethnic empire, and it was thanks to her that her kingdom greatly expanded its territory. In reaction to the campaign of the Roman emperor of the time, she declared her son emperor and assumed the title of empress for herself; after a heavy battle against them, the Romans were victorious, and she was then exiled to Rome where she spent the rest of her life. She has since been revered as a freedom fighter and a hero of the oppressed, and stands among the likes of Cleopatra and Boudica as a heroic queen with a tragic end.
  • Zabaii's name comes from either Zenobia's birth name, Bat-Zabbai, or Zabbai (alternatively spelled Zabaii), considered to be the name of her unknown father or some other distant ancestor.
  • In the anime, Zenobia was redesigned significantly, such as no longer having the shovels and bucket on her head and her colors were made to be duller.
