Scroll is a witch and a member of the Witch Union. She was one of three founders of the Witch Cooperation Association. Scroll served as Roland's personal archivist, before being appointed as the Minister of Education for the City of Neverwinter, as well as the teacher for the Witch Union (primarily for their safety). She is also the first non-combat type Transcendent in history.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Despite being around 40 in age, her magic power had greatly slowed the aging process. She doesn't have wrinkles and her long black hair was tied back simply behind her head, making her look very mature and capable. The fine crow's feet at the corners of her eyes did not destroy her overall beauty but rather brought out her steady temperament.
After she evolved into a Transcendent and tried modern clothes, she looked stunning even among witches, according to Phyllis.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Scroll is an intelligent and cautious woman, always wanting to think before making any moves. She is a very capable woman, which is why Roland immediately put her in charge of education for the Border Area; primarily the Witch Union teacher, Scroll is capable of simultaneously managing the other teachers.
Much like Wendy, Scroll feels the need to caution witches against pursuing romance with a royal, as its demanded they have blood heirs. However, she later drops the idea after Roland begins abolishing such anachronistic thinking.
Background[edit | edit source]
Scroll was born in Seawindshire in Eastern Region. She was a haircutter and had been spending all bronze royals on education. Her skills came into use when she sheared witches during their journey.
In Seawindshire of Eastern Region Scroll, Wendy and Cara gathered together at secret location which was an entrance to underground ruins. After Cara went down there she returned with an ancient book. Since then more witches joined them until they were ambushed by Judgement Army. After that attack which cost them more than a dozen witches, Cara declared the goal of newborn Witch Cooperation Association to find the Holy Mountain.
Chronology[edit | edit source]
After failed journey to Holy Mountain and loss of most of witches Scroll offered to Leaf lead the remnant members of Witch Cooperation Association. The latter refused and explained she would try luck in Border Town. If she won't return Scroll should guide the rest to the south or across straits.
Awaiting group was greeted by Nightingale and Lightning and brought to the castle where a feast was arranged for them. After that the witches showed their abilities and they were given rooms on the second floor for two witches each. At night they gathered in Wendy's room and discussed their past and future, also wondering the reason behind Roland's kindness. Next morning they signed a contract with him.
After this Roland asked Scroll, Soraya and Leaf about unknown monsters Leaf fought with and an ancient book found by Cara. By his request she summoned illusion of Cara's book but warned him not to get into it.
Next weeks whenever Roland write new piece of knowledge he would ask her to remember it, so it wouldn't be lost. Though she would effortlessly recollect knowledge she couldn't understand it without his explanation.
Roland gave Scroll the responsibility to teach his subjects and manage the school. Though primarily, Scroll acts as the teacher for the aWitch Union and and their Sleeping Spell allies.
Later, she became Minister of Education, and the first non-combatant type Transcendent of history. 
Powers & Abilities[edit | edit source]
Magic[edit | edit source]
Her ability belonged to the self-strengthening type (Extraordinary). As a self-strengthening type, she can sense the form and flow of nearby magic power and her ability is not affected by God's Stone of Retaliation.
Awakening[edit | edit source]
Extraordinary Memory: Her ability was having an extraordinary memory.
Adulthood[edit | edit source]
Eidetic Memory: After she entered adulthood and her ability became stable, she was able to remember almost everything she saw, read or experienced. This ability also greatly strengthened her learning, especially the reading of books which required a good memory and that was also why she became so knowledgeable, even though she came from a poor family.
Branch ability[edit | edit source]
"Book of Illusion" (Book Generation): Her derivative ability, which Roland named the "Book of Illusion", enables her to materialize any book she had read for a short period of time. To use her derivative skill, most of her magic power would be consumed, and when the remaining magic power ran out, the "Book of Illusion" would disappear, usually in half a quarter to two hours.
Transcendent[edit | edit source]
Realm of Mind: She has a room, a kind of territory in the Realm of the Mind. She can bring one God's Punishment Witch with her into her domain.
Enhanced Calculation Abilities: Because there were large amounts of repeated calculations in data that she had once memorized, the answers emerged in Scroll's mind immediately when she coincidentally came across them once more.
Especially for those complex functions, if every little small expression among them had been memorized, then the combined expression after shuffling combinations could also be quickly solved, even if she didn't actually understand the equations and their specific meanings.
Compared to searching test papers and archives, the work involved in doing this was much heavier. It wasn't that she couldn't to it in the past, it was just that now she could do it subconsciously. Undeniably her main ability had evolved substantially.
However, no answers would appear for the problems that she had not memorized or only partially memorized.
Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
- She can materialize the "Book of Illusion" only once a day.
- The backside of her enhanced memory is the impossibility to forget deprivation she undergone through her lifetime.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Scroll was initially suspicious of Roland, as it was unbelievable to her that a noble would actually treat witches well. This opinion changed after seeing firsthand what Roland was like. She came to see that he was just as Nightingale described, and became one of his most loyal subordinates. She believes that Roland is the greatest hope for a peaceful co-existence between humans and witches. She, along with Wendy, occasionally tried to stop Roland from doing something when they thought he could get injured or if it were dangerous. She believes that Roland doesn't act like a King at all, especially after he told he would protect her in the dream world, she felt warmth in her heart nonetheless. She was scared and felt lost after her arrival in the dream world, however, Roland's existance consoled her.
She sumerises and filters out all the discussions in City Hall, which reduces burden on Roland. Without her help Roland would prefer to be a distant ruler than listen to repeated complaints of city hall officals.
Wendy[edit | edit source]
Of all the witches she is particularly close to Wendy since their days in Seawindshire. Scroll and Wendy drink together chaos drink and sing quite loud whenever Roland visits other places for few days.
Anna[edit | edit source]
Scroll believed that Anna is the best candidate to become the Queen. She finds it a little ridiculous that Anna is envious of her ability.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Her main magical ability is a photographic memory.
- After her adulthood it took her two years to learn how to utilize her branch ability, Book of Magic.
- During the camp with the Witch Cooperation Association, she had the habit to cut the hairs of the others witches.
- Wendy and Scroll often get together to drink and sing on the balcony once they get drunk.
- Before Scroll had joined the Witch Cooperation Association, the scissors were used to help her cut the hairs of her customers in the Sea Wind Region. All the copper royals she didn’t need to buy bread were handed over to an old captain with a broken leg. This captain was the one who’d taught her to read and write until he died of old age.
- She remembers all arguments in City Hall discussions, sumerises them for Roland, which greatly reduces his burdern of not remembering repeated complaints of city hall officals.
