Eibon, known the Great Wizard, is a Wizard, a former member of Death's personal guard, Death's Eight Guardians, and a herald as the greatest inventor of all time. He was also a teacher within The Witches.[3]


Eibon is characterized as a formal and friendly individual who's goal was to have mankind benefit from his inventions to the point of being passionate. He's also a loving individual, having cherished his wife and willing to go through extreme means such as an attempt on immortality, severing his close friendship with Death, and aligning himself with Arachne from promises of helping out his dilemma. After losing his wife, however, he became much more stoic from the event and in the end, more wise.[2][1]


Although Eibon is depicted as a relatively tall humanoid figure, due to the presence of his ornamental clothing his exact physical proportions and even his facial features remain mostly obscured, making it difficult to discern his actual characteristics. This concealing attire is comprised from a simplistic steel mask, attached to a protruding hat with an additional visor that descends down the entirety of his face, and a full length robe, which covers the remainder of his body. Layered over this dark robe are numerous linear patterned panels, accented by metallic plating that is also found on Eibon's shoulders and running down his sides, and protruding from the ends of his sleeves are similarly constructed angular projections. Completing his typical dress is a long triple-wrapped scarf, which terminates in a spherical bead and various tassels at end, and an unusual triangular section that extends forth from his chest, featuring steel panels fashioned into the shape of a capital letter "E".
