Niebel (ニーベル Niiberu) is a Mage from the village carved out of time, Mildian. He helps the Rave Warriors fight the final battle against Lucia Raregroove.

Appearance

Niebel is a slim young, rather short boy with straight blue dark hair and thin eyebrows. The bangs of his hair are particularly prominent, covering part of his forehead, and exposing a side of it, due to the lack of hair present at the location. He has large blue eyes and a small, mildly round nose. Niebel has a black mark, similar to Sieg's, under his right eye reaching up to his forehead.[1]

Niebel dons a green elaborated long sleeve open jacket, with lighter-colored edges, and golden zippers on either side of the jacket, reaching below his waist. Underneath, he wears a plain simple shirt loose around the bottom. Around his neck is a light scarf tied on the front in a large knot. Tied around his right arm is a wing-like object with three feathers springing forward. Surrounding his wrist, on both arms, are two moderately size dark-color bracelets.[1] His legs are covered by loose, oval-shaped patterned pants, with lines intersecting at the middle, reaching down below his knees. Both his boots are decorated with ribbons, and are, surprisingly, husky.[2] He is seen wearing glasses whilst flying on a Rune Wing.[3]

Personality

Niebel is a kind boy who looks up to Sieg and respects him dearly, even to the point of rescuing him, Sieg, from prison after being called a traitor by Master Miltz. Unlike the residents of Mildian, Niebel does not look down on the human from the outside world, and believes that the duty the people of time carry, seems weird to him, since he is not originally from Mildian, as he states. He truly believes in Sieg's strength. Even though he is still very young, Niebel acts like a responsible adult, but at times he can be very childish. Niebel does not hold grudges, as shown when he happily accepts to join forces with Miltz and Hilde, but he expresses his feelings when he is angry towards the ones who insult Sieg's name, however.

When he fights Shakuma Raregroove, the worlds most powerful sorcerer, he is filled with fear knowing how strong Shakuma is. However, he later overcomes that fear and fights him alongside the others, with Shuda as his partner. When Sieg dies, he cannot hold his sorrow and cries his heart out. He speaks to others with respect and tries his best to support his friends, as showed when he encouraged Musica to make Haru a sword. He is also rather timid and tends to add "Mr" and "Ms" at the begging of people's name when he calls them.

Synopsis

Niebel attacks Miltz

Niebel attacks Miltz

Niebel, disguised as master Miltz, heads to Sieg Hart's temporary prison cell, and orders the guards to let Sieg out. Even though the gate keepers question "Miltz's" actions, being him the one who condemned Sieg to prison in the first place, they open the gates. As they walk through the prison hall, "Miltz" and another Miltz bump into each other. The Miltz that rescued Sieg uses a Mist spell, making mist appear, from the parent magic, Illusion Magic. "Miltz" tells Sieg to run, as he begins to undo the transformation. When the smokes clears, Sieg is both happy and surprise to see his old friend, Niebel. As they walk, Niebel tells Sieg to follow him.[4]

Niebel tells Sieg that he is the one who changed

Sieg suddenly asks Niebel what caused the town to change. However, Niebel corrects Sieg, stating that the one who has changed is him. He explains that before he, Sieg, left town all he ever thought about was killing the Etherion girl. Niebel also reveals that he is known as the traitor, and that he has been running away from the other Mages for two years. When they get out of the prison, they see a great amount of Mages ready to fight Sieg. Niebel tries to convince Sieg to avoid fighting a thousand Mages. Nonetheless, Sieg decides to fight.[5]

Niebel watches Sieg, in awe, take down a thousand Mages with a magic blade. However, Niebel worries about Sieg's condition. When the battle is over, Haja and Miltz descend from the sky. Niebel is told to get back by Sieg. After Sieg takes Miltz down with one blow, Niebel realises that Sieg has been using the absorbing magic sword, Tickover.[6] Sieg tells Niebel to get out of the town, while he can. At first, Niebel refuses but then, as Haja takes both himself and Sieg underground, he leaves town, waiting for Sieg to ascend.[7]

After a week, Niebel is sitting under a tree, waiting for Sieg, when suddenly Hilde makes herself know. Hilde assures Niebel that Sieg is dead, Haja being his opponent. Nonetheless, Niebel contradicts her, and begins to ask her a series or questions. Miltz, coming from behind the tree, is confronted by an angry Niebel. Miltz decides to take Niebel and Hilde to Mildian's heart, to prove to Niebel that Sieg is most-likely to be dead. However, when they arrive they are left speechless with what they witness.[8] The three see Haja and Sieg fighting, none stop for one whole week without food or water. Niebel grabs Miltz by the collar when he hears Miltz calling Sieg a "sacrifice." Niebel tells Miltz to stop and think about what his own words mean. After listening to Niebel's words, Hilda falls on the floor and begins to cry. Miltz recognizes his error and decides to help Sieg fight Haja alongside Niebel and Hilda.[9]

Seconds after Sieg stabs Haja with Miltz's cane, Niebel begins to cry when he notices that Haja plans to kill Sieg and not die alone.[10] Niebel, Miltz, and Hilda are all heartbroken, thinking that Sieg lost his life. However, they are even more surprise when they see Haja's body come out from the water and when they see Demon Card's scientist, Igor Kilkil, come out of Haja's body. Niebel is pushed back by Igor, who grabs Hilda and threatens to kill her. Sieg suddenly comes out from the water and puts Igor to sleep. Niebel and the others are overjoyed to see him and all hug him at the same time. Niebel then scans Sieg's mind when he collapses due to exhaustion.[11]

However, before Niebel can say anything, he loses consciousness.[12] Niebel, alongside Miltz, Hilde, Flicka, and some other Mages, aid the Rave Warriors in the search for Elie's memory. Moments later, Niebel, after being told that their ship is being fallowed by the worlds most powerful sorcerer, Shakuma Raregroove, alerts the others. He explains to them that Shakuma's power can alter the whole world. Knowing that they are no match for Shakuma, the Mages, not including Niebel, begin to cast a spell that will allow them to swiftly escape Shakuma. However, Niebel is dumbfounded when he notices that Shakuma was able to cast the spell all by himself and fallow them to their current location.[13]

However, proving himself a strong opponent, Shakuma dodges the attack and heads towards Elie,[16] who recently recovered her memory and learnt that she is Resha Valentine,[17] and destroys Sieg's corps with one of his magic spells, angering both Elie and Haru.[18]
