The victims were the strong. The targets of jealousy. Fear. Discrimination. Persecution. And theft!

— To Valtos in The Man Who Cuts Death

Patolli 「パトリ Patori[1] is an elf and the leader of the Eye of the Midnight Sun, under the name and appearance of Licht.[2] He shares a body with William Vangeance, Captain of the Golden Dawn squad.[3]


Due to having Licht's appearance, Patolli looks like a tall, slender elf with white hair and gold eyes. He has red crescent tattoos with three buds framing the sides of his eyes, and two red dots above his eyes instead of eyebrows. His long hair is braided back into several long extensions with a Kippah covering the top of his head ending with a cross over his forehead with an eye etched into the center. He also wears jewelry, including looped earrings.

His attire consists of dark- and light-colored robes layered over light-colored trousers, dark-colored boots, and a padded, light-colored shirt with a high collar. Tied around his waist are several belts with a long cord attached to one of them. The undershirt appears to have the same pattern as his Kippah. He wears a long, hooded white robe ending in black lines with sleeves extending past his hands, and a black shawl over his shoulders and upper chest, held by a long ornament.

His right forearm and hand are withered[4] and completely bandaged due to an injury from Julius Novachrono.[5] Months later, his arm has been repaired through unknown means.[6]

Once his resurrection is complete, Patolli's ears become pointed and his tattoos change.[7]



Patolli losing composure

Patolli losing his composure

As Licht, Patolli shows great compassion for his followers,[8] to the point of losing his composure when Valtos is injured in his presence.[9] He is loved by his men as shown when Catherine and George claim they would never betray him.[10]

In truth, Patolli deeply despises all humans and their willingness to betray others and their own kind. He is a cold, deceiving being who does not care about anything but revenge.[11]

Since childhood, Patolli has looked up to Licht, almost always being by his side.[12][13] Because of this, Patolli despises Asta for possessing Licht's grimoire and swords.[14]


Patolli was born into the Elf Tribe. One day he witnesses Licht receive a grimoire, and Patri asks his mother about the four-leaf clover. Sometime later, Patolli is hanging out with Licht and Rhya as usual and asks Licht about the rumor that humans are going to attack. Suddenly a magic tornado appears, and Patolli watches as Licht saves a woman trapped inside. Patolli is surprised to see that her brother has a four-leaf-clover like his friend Licht.[15]

Patolli is initially skeptical of the humans but believes in Licht who trusts them.[16] After Licht announces that Tetia is pregnant, Rhya teases Patolli about being young.[17]

Months later, the day before his own grimoire acceptance ceremony, Patolli attends the wedding for Licht and Tetia, but after the ceremony, the elves are betrayed and massacred by humans.[18][19] Afterward, Licht casts a Reincarnation Magic spell on all of the other elves.[20]

Centuries later, Patolli wakes up and finds he has been reincarnated into William Vangeance's body, a human who looks like Licht. Finding that he cannot use William's grimoire, Patolli races to a grimoire tower and receives his own four-leaf clover. He then vows to revive the elves and destroy the humans.[21] Because they share a body, Patolli befriends William and they come to understand each other.[22]

Patolli resurrects Rhya, Vetto, and Fana in the bodies of humans[23][24] and establishes the Eye of the Midnight Sun, recruiting humans to use as sacrifices.[25]

Patolli sends Heath Grice to retrieve the magic stone from Sosshi. After hearing about Heath's defeat, Patolli is not perturbed that the Black Bulls have the stone.[26]

According to the plan, Valtos teleports Fuegoleon Vermillion into a trap, where Patolli is waiting for him[27][28] and takes his right arm and pendant.[29]

Patolli appears in light

Patolli appears before Julius and Asta.

While Julius Novachrono and Asta are in the Eye of the Midnight Sun's hideout, Patolli appears before them in a blaze of light and then disappears with the sephirot and all but one of the restrained mages.[30] However, Patolli does not completely dodge Julius' counterattack, and his right arm is badly disfigured.[4]

After the battle, Patolli regrets not rescuing George and Catherine, but Valtos assures him that they are loyal and will not reveal anything. Patolli promises that he will become more powerful, save them, and dismantle the Clover Kingdom.[31]

Light Magic

Patolli arrives to save Sally.

Just after Neige plans to make amends, Patolli shoots a sword of light, taking him down. He targets Gauche Adlai, hitting him twice with the same attack (but in non-vital areas[32]), and attacks Theresa Rapual, critically injuring her. Revealing his presence, he introduces himself as Eye of the Midnight Sun's Leader, with an injured Sally cradled in his arms and Valtos standing behind him. Noticing Sally's injuries, Patolli sheds tears, apologizing to Sally for her pain. He tells Valtos not to feel responsible even though he was the one who sent her there. He explains his belief as to why the victims are always the powerful ones: envy, fear, isolation, persecution, and prey. Angered, Patolli tells Asta he was the first one who attacked and asks why he has that grimoire. Before Asta can attack him, Patolli brushes past him and turns to attack him, but his attack is unexpectedly blocked by Yami Sukehiro, who calmly states he is lost and looking for directions.[33]

Patolli declines Valtos' offer to bring "them" over, stating he has always wanted to fight against a Dark Magic user. When Finral Roulacase attempts to teleport himself with the kids, Theresa, and Gauche, Patolli sends an attack his way, only for it once again to be canceled out by Yami.[34] Their battle starts as Yami continuously blocks Patolli's magic. Using a spell Patolli appears behind Yami, aiming to take him down, only for his attack to be blocked again. Patolli calls Yami the "Great Heretical Magic Knight." Yami takes back his claim as he remembers he does not know anyone who uses Light Magic.[35]

Patolli slips past Yami

Patolli appears behind Yami.

Patolli tells Yami a story about a town of people who were loved by mana, describing the kind of power they wielded. He reveals that they became feared by those around them and were later massacred out of envy and greed. Yami replies with the tale of his own past, which angers Valtos. Attacking Yami after his outburst, Patolli manages to cut Yami's shoulder and tells him that as a foreigner, he would not understand. After another barrage of spells, Yami asks if he is the culprit behind Fuegoleon's assassination attempt. Confirming the captain's suspicions, Patolli reveals that he had the Crimson Lion's captain fall into a trap after meticulous planning. This makes Yami furious as he uses a Dark Magic spell, cutting Patolli's cheek. Black Bull's captain claims that he is going to show Patolli the true power of a Magic Knight Captain, telling him there are no tricks to hide behind this time, which makes Patolli smirk.[36]

Patolli heals the cut on his cheek, confusing Asta and Yami as to why he can also use Healing Magic. When Valtos asks to assist, Patolli kindly orders him to capture Asta and gives him permission to injure him in the process. Once Asta finally uses Ki and manages to send his mana back at Valtos, sending him flying, grows furious and tells them he will make them pay.[37]

Bright Judgment Whip

Patolli causes a cave in.

Patolli tells them that this punishment suits them well and with Bright Judgment Whip, he causes the cave to begin collapsing, making Yami comment that Patolli has lost his mind. Looking at the destruction caused by his attack, Patolli tells himself that they were too weak as he held back a lot. Valtos praises his leader, saying his power is like that of a god's, but his praise is cut short when Asta and Yami appear from beneath the rubble, causing him to give them an annoyed look.[38]

Patolli and Yami continue their fight, and Yami asks for the rest of Patolli's story and his reasons for attacking the Clover Kingdom. Patolli points to the disparity between the rich and the poor, the nobles and the lowborn, and those of different countries, so after rising from the bottom, he plans to correct these injustices with force, despite acting like those he hates, as Yami notes. As they fight, Valtos interrupts with an attack at Yami, who blocks it[39] and tells Asta to handle him. When Yami is distracted by Asta punching Valtos, Patolli takes the opportunity to attack the captain from behind, but his light whip is sucked into a Black Hole, which also slows Patolli, allowing Yami to hit him with Dark Cloaked Black Blade.[40]

Patolli prepares to kill Yami and Asta

Patolli prepares his strongest spell.

Patolli suffers a major wound and commends Yami's Dark Magic and skill with it. Yami notes that Patolli needs to heal himself and that doing so will leave him defenseless against another attack. Comparing the captain to Julius, Patolli decides to use his strongest spell, which will kill both Yami and Asta.[41] Patolli is preparing to release his spell as Yami erects a shield of Dark Magic. Patolli fires Light Shaft of Divine Punishment when Gauche and Finral return, and Gauche reflects the spell back at Patolli .[42] Forced to take the full force of his own spell, Patolli falls to the ground. When the Black Bulls gather near Patolli, Yami points out that Mirror Magic is another counter to Light Magic, and Patolli admits to not wanting to hurt Gauche and promises that they will understand later when they profess confusion.[43]

As Yami prepares to restrain Patolli, the Third Eye appear,[44] and Fana begins healing Patolli's injuries. He then introduces the Third Eye as they show their strength against Yami.[45] Forced to go on the defensive, Yami resolves to surpass his limits, but Patolli claims that each of the Third Eye is stronger than any Magic Knight captain.[46]

After Jack the Ripper, Nozel Silva, and Charlotte Roselei arrive, the Silver Eagle captain launches a Silver Spear at the still recovering Patolli, but Fana melts the spear.[47] As Patolli watches the ensuing fights between the Third Eye and the captains, he expresses confidence in his men because they are loved by mana, and decides to recover Asta's grimoire because someone without mana could not have it. A portal then opens up above Patolli, and Yami drops down. Expecting this, Patolli already has a spell prepared but is caught off guard by Asta, who slipped through the smoke and fighting and leaped out from behind Patolli.

Third Eye seal Patolli

Patolli and his mana are crystallized.

The boy smashes Patolli with his Demon-Slayer Sword,[48] sending him crashing to the ground.[49] Suddenly Patolli begins glowing and Vetto realizes that the Anti Magic sword removed Patolli's seal. Patolli asks why Asta has that grimoire and those swords, identifying them and claiming they belong to someone important to him. Patolli refuses to accept Asta's own claims, and his mana begins to overflow, forming a sphere around him, which absorbs Jack's attack. As the Magic Knights grow more concerned, the Third Eye position themselves around Patolli and perform a Trinity Sealing Magic spell, crystallizing Patolli's mana. They then retreat with Patolli and Valtos through Spatial Magic.[50]

Several weeks later, William meets with Julius atop the palace wall and apologizes before transforming into Patolli, who formally introduces himself as Licht.[3] Patolli explains some of his connection to William and his plans for the kingdom before commencing his attack on Julius. When Julius intercepts the light blades, Patolli closes the distance and lashes out with his light whip, destroying the nearby tower but missing Julius. Patolli analyzes Julius' predictive ability and overtakes the Magic Emperor, appearing behind him and slashing his chest.[51] The two land back on the wall and Patolli listens in as Julius heals himself explains about himself and his Time Magic. Patolli then tries the same strategy, but when he appears behind Julius, the Magic Emperor moves to behind the elf and destroys the incoming counterattack.[52]

As the battle continues, Patolli's cheek is cut by his attack being returned at an accelerated speed. When he jumps to the side, he is almost restrained by Julius. Landing on the tower rubble, Patolli wonders about Julius' grimoire, and as if reading his mind, Julius points where is grimoire is floating overhead. After Julius talks about how his coverless grimoire, his unique magic, and his path to Magic Emperor, he attacks the puzzled Patolli.[53]

Patolli stabs Julius

Patolli stabs Julius.

Realizing that Julius is the last obstacle for his plans, Patolli moves up into the air and releases the seal holding back his magic power. As the sphere of Light Magic expands and takes the shape of countless swords, Patolli vows to kill all of the humans of the Clover Kingdom.[54] Patolli unleashes his Arrows of Judgment,[55] and when Julius stops time and reverses the spell, Patolli takes the opportunity to stab Julius with one of the swords. He then mocks the Magic Emperor for having foreseen the attack but choosing to save the citizens instead of himself.[56]

Patolli steals the two magic stones Julius had as Yami arrives and calls out Vangeance. Patolli tells him that William is asleep while a tear falls from his left eye. When Yami orders Marx to fetch Owen, Patolli tells him that it is too late, and bids his respect for Julius. Patolli then jumps over to Valtos and the two disappear, narrowly avoiding Yami's Dark Cloaked Dimension Slash.[57]

Patolli and Valtos travel to the sephirot,[58] which is within the demon skeleton on the outskirts of Hage. Before he sets the last stone, Patolli thanks Valtos, Rades, and Sally for their efforts but then reveals his true nature and his disdain for all humans, including them who betrayed their own kind for their selfish desires. Patolli places the last stone and light begins pouring out of the sephirot and the demon skeleton.[59] As the humans begin burning, Patolli reveals that the naming ceremony was actually for marking them as sacrifices to revive his true comrades.[60]

After the other elves possess humans, Patolli declares that it is time for revenge.[61] Patolli briefly loses consciousness and awakens to find his resurrection has completed. He thanks William and places the human's grimoire next to the sephirot. He then leaves for the Royal Capital to join up with Licht and the others.[62]

Patolli arrives at the dungeon after Droit and Ecra. Rhya appears to greet them, and they discuss Licht, the defeated Golden Dawns, and the final magic stone.[63]

Battle ProwessEdit


  • Light Magic: Patolli uses this form of magic to generate and manipulate light. He can use it to blind his opponents or move at remarkable speeds.[64][65]


  • Enhanced Endurance: After being severely cut by Yami Sukehiro, he continues to fight.[73]
  • Immense Magic Power: Patolli has been described as having bottomless reserves of mana.[74] He easily demolishes a cave during his battle with Yami while severely holding back.[75] He has a seal placed on his mana, and when it is removed by the Demon-Slayer Sword, the built-up power is enough to decimate a large area and is so massive that even Magic Knight captains have no hope of dealing with it.[76]

Cleverness Leadership


  • Grimoire: Patolli possesses a four-leaf clover grimoire that contains various light-based magic spells.[77]
