|Spirit Enhancement Data|
A magical girl born into a family loyal to the Pharaohs. From an early age, she was sworn to obedience to the dynasty and forced by the adults to enter into a magical girl contract. She secretly wonders if she was really born just to serve the Pharaohs.
The Doppel of skepticism. Its form is a vulture. From the moment that the master of this emotion was born, she has been forced into a life of servitude to the Pharaohs. But upon realizing that other ways of life exist, she was wracked with conflict. This Doppel continually emits fluctuations in response to that conflict, and creates doubt in the hearts of those around it as it propagates the fluctuations with its wingbeats. These doubts quickly balloon into various opposing poles– joy and sorrow, hope and resignation, veneration and contempt– thus calling forth further chaos. As this chaos reaches its breaking point and overflows, it drags everything down with it into transience and uncertainty.

- 'Ebony' denotes wood of trees of the Diospyros family. The word comes from the Ancient Egyptian hbny.
- Her illustrator is "Punyan".
- Due to the fact that Egypt was controlled by a Greek dynasty and had close ties with the Roman Empire during the time period of her event, it's possible that her family may be Greek or Roman instead of Egyptian.
- She is the sixth playable character to lack a family name, the others being Lil' Kyubey, Kuroe, Chizuru, Kuro (黒) and Kuro (くろ).
- Ebony's design seems to be heavily themed around Egyptian deities.
- Her magical girl outfit resembles some of the clothing worn by Egyptian deities.
- Her Soul Gem is based on Scarab artifacts, a symbol common in Egyptian mythology, that is said to represent the god Khepri. Here, her Soul Gem takes the place of the ball (sun) the scarab holds.
- Her head-dress is a peacock, which is said to reference the sun god Ra and is also associated with the Eye of Horus. Despite her wearing several sun symbols, she is a Dark-type.
- The name of her Connect references Bennu, an Egyptian god linked with the Sun, creation, and rebirth.
- Her Magia name references Horus, the most significant god of the Egyptian pantheon and the god of kingship and the sky.
- Her Doppel's name, Apebis, is a combination of Apeba (a genus of longhorn beetles, referencing scarabs and Khepri) and Anubis (the Egyptian god of mummification that takes the form of a jackal).
- Despite its name being associated with beetles and jackals, the Doppel itself takes the form of a vulture. Vultures, being carrion birds, are also associated with death. The Egyptian goddess Nekhbet, who took the form of a vulture, was a patron goddess of the city Nekheb who ultimately became the patron of Upper Egypt, and then one of two patrons for the entirety of Egypt once it was unified. In ancient Egypt, vulture crowns were protective symbols of the goddess worn by high ranking priestesses, the Great Royal Wives, and female pharaohs.
- The name of her clan, the Met Clan, is an Ancient Egyptian word that means "lioness".
