Auntie (婆, Baba) was a former EAT Class student of Death Weapon Meister Academy that retired but worked as the Receptionist that assigns students on quests[1]. She later came out of retirement and was a member of the Airborn Divison during the Battle on the Moon.[2]


Auntie is generally a polite woman whom enjoys her job as a receptionist and loves kids.[3] She also takes great pride in being a woman, as she has admitted that girls should also pay attention to their appearance.[3] She also seems to maintain the notion she is slim and is oblivious to her own weight gain, in which has been shown to have torn the belt of her own uniform.[3] She can also be very clumsy due to her own powerful strength.[3]

With her eccentricities comes a far more serious side of Auntie. She is a selfless woman, having been a former EAT student (something she takes pride in), and is willing to come out of retirement If it means helping out the younger generation.[3] She later honors this claim later when she joins in on the Battle on the Moon as a member of the Airborne Division[2] and was willing to attempt a suicide attack to takedown an enemy.[4] She also can be fierce at times, as shown when she resorted to physically putting down both Black☆Star & Kilik Rung when both of them fought over a quest.[5] In addition, she express disapproval in Kaguya's choice of wear and criticized it for being a bad influence on DWMA students[4] and once remarked to Kid that sometimes it's necessary to overpower the enemy contrary to his "sensitive" and "delicate" way he fights and even maintain confidence he had the strength to do so.[4]

Auntie has revealed that she prefers males who know how to be assertive.[2]

Auntie is a short, round woman with a compressed-looking snout and large lips as well as profound eyelashes.[2] In the anime, she possesses large, light blue eyes and short blonde hair which is worn curled at its ends as well as profound eyelashes and her cheeks.[6]

As the Receptionist in the DWMA, she normally wears the typical reception uniform; dark knee-length pants, light-colored high-length socks and light-colored shoes, checkerboard vests with ties held by skull brooches, and pill hats. these reception vests also include skull-shaped belts on the back to provide a slimmer figure and curves to female workers, though hers in particular is broken.[3] When she went to participate on the Battle of the Moon as a member of the Airborn Division, she wore a DWMA troop uniform in which consists of a black hooded military coat with a large open collar and large combat trousers equipped with black boots.[2]

  • Auntie hits Kaguya with a heavy blow.
  • Auntie blows away Kaguya
  • Immense Strength: Auntie's most well known trait is her amazing strength, in which has been shown to do damage to even the likes of Kaguya, who's defense was powerful enough to block Death the Kid's Death Cannon shots despite the latter connecting two of the Lines of Sanzu with her Angel's Raiment.[4] In addition to this, she can be rather clumsy with he strength and has been seen able to physically put down both Kilik Rung and Black☆Star with her own strength alone in one shot, both of them being the two top contending DWMA students within the academy.[5]
  • Immense Durability: Auntie survived her own kamikaze-like attack on Moonlight, where the latter was blown to pieces and would of been killed If not for a Clown's apparent immortality.[7]

Hand-To-Hand Mastery: Being a former EAT student, Auntie possess considerable hand-to-hand combat skills. She's been seen able to easily put down both Black☆Star & Kilik Rung at the same time early on during the Soul Eater NOT! timeframe.[5] Her skill also allowed her to damage Kaguya despite her Angel's Raiment serving as her defense, a feat in which managed to surprise Kaguya.[4] Her fighting style is more aggressive and heavy then the likes of those such as Death the Kid, who compared her analysis of their style of fighting to Black☆Star.[4]
