Shaula Gorgon (シャウラ  ゴルゴン, Shaura Gorugon) was the main/only antagonist of the spin-off series, Soul Eater Not! who was said to be a witch, Shaula studied and threatened the Shibusen and eventually took control of Death City through her trademark Blood Poison-Mind Control. Just like her sister Medusa, she as well as hid under the academy's nose and plotting from afar. Shaula was killed by Tsugumi Harudori, Anya Hepburn, and Meme Tatane.

Personality

It's time to prove that I am the most talented of the Gorgon Sisters.

Shaula, Chapter 6, Soul Eater Not!.

Shaula, like her older sibling Medusa, shares an interest in experimental research, driven by the singular interest in destroying the organization known as Shibusen(citation needed) . It is since she seemed to have developed into a strong sense of ambition but at the cost of her becoming both boastful and conceited. Rather like Medusa, she remains composed even while being dismissive of her previous experiments, especially of those whom are not deemed useful any longer. She seems to be using these Traitors as prototypes to further the creation of a being capable of defeating the students of Shibusen, an objective which is strangely similar to those of her relations. She also seems to share Arachne's fondness of lavish and high-quality things, demonstrated by the various furnishings that adorn her initial office.[1]

Shaula is a sinister individual, having immense hatred against those align with Shibusen. She also has no problem in manipulating others with mind control to her own means and even seems to enjoy doing so. Rarely, has she been seen losing her composure much like her sisters. She's not above taking advantage of others much like her sisters. She's seems to have no regard for taking any sort of human life & takes joy in taking it.

She's somewhat flirtatious, as seen when she lifted Meme's skirt when possessing her as she spoke to Sid Barrett. She also has some sort of sense of humor, telling Akane with Meme's body to show her "some of his killer moves". She even refered to Sid as "Sid-sensei", which would be unusual for a witch to refer to a teacher as such when she would also call him by his name.[2]

However, unlike any of her sisters, she is motivated by what seems to be more of a personal reason. Though it is still unclear, she has mention several times that she is "lonely" due to the actions of Shibusen(citation needed) . This may come from the fact that Witches are generally hunted by potential deathscythes for their souls & live with the constant danger that their lives may end for an individual to become a Deathscythe. She also mentions when her plans seem to work that she'll enjoy "being able to hunt for once"[3]

Appearance

Shaula, unlike her sisters, demonstrates all the qualities of a typical teenage girl rather than those of a mature woman, leading to the assertion that she is the youngest amongst her two siblings. Her pale and unblemished complexion serves to accentuate her slender facial features, which are characterized by the unusual iris displayed by both of her eyes, a trait seemingly shared by all the members of her immediate family. Alluding to her scorpion theme, this distinctive feature takes the shape of two interlocking scorpion stingers, which together form one complete circle located at the center of each eye(which also looks like the yin yang to some viewers). Continuing with this motif, her floral patterned or headscarf covered hair is arranged into a long loose plait that ends in the shape of a scorpion's stinger, through the use of an appropriately tied bow, an aspect that is further mirrored by an ornamental earring dangling from her right ear.

Befitting her age, Shaula's typical attire consists of a long-sleeved sailor outfit that has been adopted by many Japanese schools as their standard uniform. However, unlike most variations, hers displays the symbol of the star sign "Scorpio" (♏) as a small emblem, located on the visible portion of her vest beneath her sailor collar. This collar has two stripes running across it, one that goes along its entirety and another that terminates partway across the front.[4]


Powers and Abilities

Skilled Combatant

Shaula seems to be a highly skilled combatant. She seems to be very agile, able to jump from rooftop to rooftop and land gracefully.  She also can jump incredibly high. She also is able to manipulate her hair similar to that of a stinger, not requiring her to release Soul Protect. Her hair is also very durable, as she can stop Tsugimi's halberd form with it and initially stop the Trio's Soul Resonance Attack.[5]

She's been seen able to easily defeat Shiubsen's agents.[6] Both Anya and Meme individually while holding Tsugumi in her halberd form were unable to damage Shaula, as she used her hair and dodged their attacks towards her with ease. She was defeated when the Trio managed to utilize a Soul Resonance technique.[7]

Skilled Marksman

Shaula on one occasion was shown to employ the use of a Bow and Arrow on Sid Barett.[8]

Magic

See also:Scorpion Magic

As a Witch and Gorgon Sister, she is very competent in Magic.  She seems to be proficient in the use of Mind control and curses. She also has shown the ability to make a special stimulant in which makes those under her control. [9] In addition, those under her control seems to exhibit physical combat prowess. She is potent in cursing objects such as rings to put her victims under Mind Control.[10] She's able to use such abilities without going out of Soul Protect.

Out of her Soul Protect, her magic enables her to enhance those under her control from the stimulant. She is also able to conjure magic symbols and fire stringer-shaped energy at her opponents. [11]

High Level Intellect

It can be assumed that due to her nature of creating "prototypes" and her love for experimentation like Medusa, she's a highly intelligent individual. She is a capable tactician & strategist, able to discover Shibusen's attempts to capture her, outsmarting Sid's forces by using Meme's friends and even caused the death the Sid as a result.[12] She's also was able to even hide in Death City with the use of Soul Protect, despite the fact she would stand out due to her appearance(citation needed) . She was also able to launch an attack on Death City effectively, giving the organization difficulty in tracking her down.[13] She's also noted for the creation of her Blood Poison-Mind Control, in which not only makes the subject under her complete control, but grants them immense physical prowess and Martial Art ability.(citation needed)


In addition to being a capable strategist, she also seems to be great at craftsmanship. She was able to make jewelry and use such objects to curse others.(citation needed) . In addition to that, she seems very skilled in making specific scorpion-themed weaponry for the Traitors put under her mind control[14].

Soul Eater Not!

Shibusen Traitor Arc

Shaula's Base

Shaula awaits her subordinates return

Seated within the confines of a spacious office, Shaula awaits the arrival of one of her subordinates, after the Traitor's previous brief engagement with Anya Hepburn. Noting the desired individual's return, she asserts that the collected data from her various experiments is gradually reaching fruition, before dismissing those before her as mere prototypes. Upon word from another assistant that preparations have been completed, Shaula proudly declares that she will now prove her superiority to the other Gorgon Sisters.[15]

Sometime later, Shibusen suspects her and begins their search for her. She is later seen at a public market place, disguised. She tricks Eternal Feather into wearing one of her scorpion rings which gives Shaula mental control over her.[16] [17]

After Eternal Feather had caused enough commotion Shaula commands her to kill herself by slitting her neck, which shocks all of her friends.[18] [19]

Battle Festival Arc

Shaula was seen standing on the rooftops, viewing the academy and proclaim the time is almost here to enact her plan. She then smiles wickedly.(citation needed)


During Halloween, she was out giving candy dressed as a stereotypical witch. It was known at that point she is waiting for the Battle Festival to take place.(citation needed)


When Meme was discovered to be one of Shaula's victims in mind control and Shibusen took custody of her, Shaula used Anya and Tsugumi's care for Meme to her advantage. After being free from captivity, Meme under Shaula's control took down Anya and then used Tsugumi as leverage. Shaula, herself, then took care of Shibusen's agents, putting them under her mind control. She then engage Sid herself while controlling Meme to go against Akane. However, as Sid was engaging her, Meme stabbed him in the back. When he turned around to see he had struck Meme, he dropped his guard. Shaula takes advantage and that and kills Sid as a result. She then escapes. It is revealed later that she has a sizable amount of people under her control.[20]

She was defeated by the combined power of Tsugumi, Anya and Meme. She become the first of the Gorgon to be perished.

Trivia

  • Whilst Medusa and Arachne's names are derived from Greek mythology, Shaula's name instead comes from both astronomy and astrology. The name "Shaula" is the traditional Arabic name for a star system called Lambda Scorpii, which is a part of the constellation of Scorpius. It roughly translates to "the raised [tail], as it is found in the tail of the scorpion (Scorpius)". Given the fact that Shaula's emblem is that of the symbol of the star sign, Scorpio (♏), and she has the theme of scorpion stingers in her appearance, her name befits these other allusions.
  • With the introduction of Shaula's scorpion theme to Medusa and Arachne's respective themes of snakes and spiders, the Gorgon Sisters complete the popularized trinity of venomous animals, found within many cultures.
  • Ironically, she is the youngest of the Gorgon but be the first to have been truly defeated (Arachne doesn't count since she was still alive hiding in spider form at the time of Soul Eater NOT!).
