Synopsis: In an alternate ending of the series, magic has being severely crippled by the Noir Rod and in doing so, leaves the very planet itself vulnerable to giant creatures who predated witches and humanity alike. Meanwhile, the small band of Witches, Lotte, Sucy, Diana, Amanda, Constanze and Jazminka are searching for their friend, Akko who has gone missing ever since this crisis began. However, their search would lead them to discover that Akko has now become part of what can be described as an ancient conspiracy, one that will shake the foundations on what they belive in.

Synopsis: It has been many years ever since the world was saved and the all mighty Yggdrasil was restored thanks to Akko Kagari and the Nine New Witches. As magic grew prosperous, so does the discovery of many potentials. Thus, Altair Nova was born. Eve Cavendish, the daughter of Diana Cavendish enters a new chapter in her life. She will face many challenges but will also encounter friends along the way.
Akko has grown ever since the series. By the time of Altair Nova, she has been regarded as the most powerful witch on the planet. She is so far one of the rare few who could use magic spells without voicing incantations. Her abilities she is most adept are transformation, flight, fire element, fighting based, golem creation and the rarest of spell, Winkarr Ikaros.
Root Dragon - Root Dragons are a species of Dragon. While start off as small lizard/worm creatures but over time and healthy consumption of magic, they can grow into the most powerful dragon, rivaling that of Dragon Mothers. Akko has one as her familiar and she named him Kuro.
One episode - Eve and her friends accidentally travelled back in time to where Akko and co were still students. After Akko and her roommates were dragged into another adventure by mistake, Eve has to take the guise of her soon to be headmistress and help her win a very important match.
The only armor so far is the Knight of the New Dawn. The armor is given to those who are so powerful and skilled but at the same time are responsible using it. Akko gains the armor for her use of the Grand Triskellion.
In one episode I mentioned, Eve and Akko have a close relationship. When young Hannah and Barbara insulted Akko, Eve steps in to defend her honor. Hilariously, Eve beat young Diana in a very challenging game that the audience are in pure shock. Eve wanted to defend her mentor's honor and though this was the big event that Akko meant. In truth, Akko wanted to return some panties belonging to Diana. Eve is at disbelief, that her mentor took that a big deal but instead at her mother, thinking she went aroung school wearing without panties.
Also, to help with Woodward having a violent past. It would be that her relationship with Ankh, her mentor was much like Woodward and Croix but this time it is Woodward who is the student. Much like Croix, Woodward doesn't admit that she started the Jotunheimm war because of her lust for power.
In her anger when Ankh turns away from her, she shoots and kills him. Woodward realises in horror what she has done. The Nine Olde Witches disbanded over what Woodward did to Ankh and Woodward decides to stay and lead the new wielder for the Shiny Rod. However Woodward grew cold and distant after so many Chosen Ones failed and stumbled into the mistakes she did costing them the Rod. Croix was the worst of them all to Woodward because Croix reminded Woodward too much of herself.
I like that Diana gave up her precious premium card for Akko. She didn't want to give something like the Moonlit Witch or treasures because they have been degraded to the point that it lost all value and meaning. She gave that card that held meaning. Akko deserves that card because Akko is a better Shiny Chariot than Chariot could ever be as Akko did make a long lasting impact in the world for the better.
Another thing, I like that the message behind the Grand Triskellion stick is that the ability to alter the world is to move forward. Instead of reliving an age that is long gone, Akko decides to move forward in her life which she did by reshaping the Arcturus Forest in her own way.
Keep moving forward is true, as it is often the problem older generation of witches face. Younger generations like Akko and Croix adapted better in changes, but older ones difficult tondo the same or outright refuse until it started to be a problem.
I thought a lot about you Ankh character idea. I felt I can use the mystical turtle-like creature, but since I found no mythological turtles in Norse Mythology and I mainy use that mythology as reference for my fanfic series, I felt it would be better that instead of progenitor of Yggdrasil, he instead would be portrayed as a member of ancient, magical bipedal turtle that once inhabited island-like sea monster called Lyngbakr:
Ankh: A magical turtle-like creature and member of an ancient inhabitant of Lyngbakr, island-like sea monster. Following Lyngbakr's death which caused the ecosystems on its back to died out, he and his fellow Turtles of Lyngbakr made an exodus all over Midgard. During his travel around the world, he once met a group of 8 friends who found themselves given power by Yggdrasil and aided them finding the 9th, Woodward. Though he and Woodward had good relationships at first, Ankh was dismayed to see how she used her gift to aid her clan conquering lands in violent manner, so much that he willing to stop her by force. Whem Ankh seemingly killed by Woodward, it allowed the future 9th witch to see her errors and decided to atone herself by join her fellow witches to form Nine Olde Witches.
Little did Nine Olde Witches know that Ankh is in fact, still alive, but has since decided to watch over them in shadows to see changes they made on Midgard. Due to the fight against Woodward, he lost his right eye and had a shard of Woodward's sword embedded on his forehead. He still kept the shard on his head as remainder of his sad history with Woodward to the day.
Note: I had yet to finalize that revised idea yet, so I might not surprise if you dismayed with some changes on it. And the idea of Woodward once a warmonger came from the video below:
It doesn't have to be exactly like Norse Mythology. The idea behind this is that there are different cultures and beliefs much like how Akko, Lotte and Sucy come from different backgrounds and countries.
Guess you have the point. Main Mythology of my fanfic still Norse mythology, but there would be some references from other myths as well, perhaps from Egyptian or Greek. Though I'd better regulate other mythological references so it won't messed up.
Does the video which link you posted show characters speak their native languages?
I have a proposal for a certain new character in my fanfic. I wonder whether it interested you (I also about to ask Navid about it as well).
Hrimgandr: Also known as Bakunawa in Phillipine Mythology. The dreaded spawn of Midgard Jormungandr imbued with Niflheim's fumes and the one who endowed Elder Erik his icy magic. He, along with Goddess of Death Hel, Skoll, and Hati, founded Naglfar dedicated to bring forth Jotnar back to Midgard and free Loki. Because he instructed and guided Naglfar from shadows, magic community had little to no records about him, except the fact he once haunted the dreams of witches in Mamba Islands, Phillipines, leading to creation of myths about Bakunawa in the region in the first place.
I think the problem is that Ursula lost her way when she focus more on the larger world than the little people. Even with all the power in the world and she could work hard as much as she could, if she didn't take one small step at a time, she'll fail.
Akko's journey is that instead of considering about herself, she helps those in need such as Lotte and Sucy when they were trapped in the Arcturus Forest or when she decided to help the fish family rather than finding Pisces. Diana makes it clear that Akko didn't need magic when she helped her with her family, she uses her own skills and compassion to save her which is why Akko deserves to have the world in her hands.
Through your perspective, do you found that Sucy is truly good at heart? I know she appeared to be nasty that Akko and her had rocky beginnings in their friendships and she occasionally used Akko as a guinea pig for her poison & potion experiments, but none of stuff she used on Akko did serious harm. Do you think in she has standards behind her objectionable and repulsive habits?
If Chariot's great strength which displayed as seen in the fight against out of control Noir Dragom in episode 24 turned out due to cybernetic enhancement that made her technically a cyborg, do you found it odd? I mean, the cybernetic enhancement is akin to a character in video below.
To me as I said before, even with all the power she mustered, she couldn't beat the Noir Rod. Akko did.
In an ironic sense, Chariot gets eaten much like what Akko went through but Akko succeeded in saving herself with help from her friends while Chariot did not have. Once the Moonlit Witch now gets to be the sacrifice.
I think the lesson for Chariot was that when you want to use magic to make people happy, don't forget why you wanted to use magic in the first place. Chariot realises that those she harmed could have great destinies and now one is in front of her and that is Akko who will correct the mistake Chariot has made.
Ron, aside Hrimgandr above, I suddenly have an idea that popped out in my mind:
Orochi Drake: A race of multi-headed drake native at remote regions in Japan which existence inspired the legend about Yamata no Orochi. These creatures said to be extremely powerful and vicious, something which Elder Erik found in hard way as many of his men got killed just to capture one. Even though her grandfather Burai Kagari once showed her a skull of Orochi Drake stored in their family shrine, Akko remained skeptical with its existence until she and her friends confronted one that mechanically modified into a cyborg by Helviti. As with in legends, Orochi Drakes are suspectible to alcohol and similar substances, a weakness which Akko and co. exploited by using one of Sucy's concoctions.
About armors, I think Kagari family have similarly designed samurai armor to ones in For Honor during their days as samurai. I even once imagine when fighting Lara, Akko can form a cool-looking fiery naginata (a polearm used by Nobushi class of Samurai faction in For Honor, I think. Oh, I also checked out some videos about Samurai faction in For Honor where it's turned out they have interesting facts:
Due to their original homeland consumed by waves during the Great Cataclysm and had established The Myre (swampy area in the continent where Knights group and Vikings group's rivalries take place) as their new home, Samurais might can be considered as newcomers.
Due to technically outnumbered compared to other factions and the group are lasts of their kind, the Samurais more emphasize cunning intellect over brute force when it comes to warfare. This explained their usage of poisonous gas mine made of poisonous mushroom, development of combat techniques for dispatcing multiple men on ease, and possessing most updated siege equipment and tools out of 3 factions;
Vikings often emphasize brute force in spite of possess decent knowledge to construct siege warfare.
The Knights on the other hand, in spite of possessing cool siege equipments such as ballista-like bridge launcher which supposedly made them comparable to samurais, many of their said equipments somewhat outdated due to them lost much of the knowledge surroundinh those equiemts. That, coupled with rivalries with other factions, forced the Knights to replicate preexisting technology and had little to no time to improve or redevelop them from scratch.
Samurais are best when it comes to maintain unity among their people, which is why in the campaign storyline of the game, they able to set aside their differences with Iron Legion against common enemy in form of the warlady Apollyon.
Oh, one more thing: Because majorities of plot elements in my fanfic primarily derived from Norse mythology, any stuff that came from other mythology such as Bakunawa from Phillipines mythology and Orochi Drake from Japanese mythology will appear as miscellaneous lore. Some of them would come in handy. I hope you don't mind with that.
Diana has shown to be in a constant struggle between upholding the tradition/history of the Witches and her family/her own code of honor.
The first instance is when Diana refuses to listen to Akko's pleas about the true nature of the parasites to follow the orders she was given to her to destroy them. Thankfully, Akko showed to her that the parasites were in fact the Pappilidonya and while Diana gains respect for her would be rival but is left ashamed of herself that her negligence nearly costed Luna Nova of a great phenomenon.
The second was during the Samhain Festival. Diana was given the title of Moonlit Witch but it is a pyhrric victory as Akko shows that one of the traditions that Diana upheld was false by revealing the true mission behind Vajarois and ultimately setting the spirit free of her eternal torment. With her honor compromised by a broken tradition, Diana is more conflicted than ever before and felt that Akko was the true Moonlit Witch.
The third was when Diana leaves Luna Nova to return to her family estate where she battles against her aunt Daryl to save the pride and history of the Cavendish. With assistance from Akko, Diana ultimately forsakes tradition to save her aunt and cousins who intentionally sabotaged her for their own greed. Although she didn't finish the ceremony, Beatrix appears and deem her worthy, proud of her descendant's nobility.
The fourth and last was when she finally meets her idol, Shiny Chariot, now going by Professor Ursula. Upon learning the former idol's role in accidentally harming Akko's and her own magic potential, Diana was furious more at Chariot's, albeit unintentional, abandonment of Akko. This causes Diana to realize how the tradition and history has been severely tainted and that their honor has been destroyed long ago. Diana decides to do the only right thing to restore magicby abandoning what she once believed to rescue and protect her friend, Akko who is the only who could restore their lost honor.
- Daryl notes that Akko is very quite similar to Bernadette particularly the love and affection she gave to those they care for. It is also learned that Daryl's desire to protect her position as head of the household is to protect her nice from suffering the same fate as her mother because Darly honestly believes that the Witches are responsible for placing all their burden onto her which led to her death.
- Long ago, Elrik and Bernadette were once betrothed but Bernadette cut ties with him due to Elrik only after her for the resource the Cavendish held.
- It is later revealed Bernadette is alive, having been captured by Nalgfar.
Not sure either of them worked out, as I also decided that Bernadette already dead as with in anime. But about idea of her have history with Naglfar (history with Elder Erik or Elrik), I'll think about it.
Do you found it shocking if Elder Erik turned out already centuries old? I mean, when Diana browsed through journals belonged to her predecessors, Elder Erik frequently mentioned in them where he already around since the dawn of Golden Age of Magic?
I'm cool with that. Its like Clockwerk from Sly Cooper who was a very cool villain.
Also, I manage to reedit the Road of Arcturus, so the erros I might have corrected. Here's one.
Croix desperately uses the stick again but the only results she had gotten were parlor tricks she so much loathed. This left Croix devastated as she drops to the ground, ranting that this can't be the world altering magic she has been seeking. Chariot witness this and spoke Croix's name in pity. Then, Professor Woodward arrived. Noticing her, Croix demands where the real Grand Triskellion was. Woodward answers that Croix has it in her hands. Croix refuses to believe it but Woodward was telling the truth. That stick is the Grand Triskellion that Chariot and Croix has spent more than a decade searching for.
This answer prompts Croix to fall into even more despair. She yells at Woodward how could this be world altering magic with the ancient witch couldn't care less about her plight. Chariot stares at the argument between the two in shock and sadness on how desperate Croix craves attention from someone she worships much like Akko had for her. By the end of the argument, a disappointed Woodward took the Grand Triskellion away and disappears, abandoning Chariot and Croix at the forest to be left with the knowledge that they destroyed their world.
And yes, Elder Erik is akin to Clockwerk from Sly Cooper. Beieve it or not, upon figuring out that the mysterious sorcerer she confronted being Elder Erik himself, she consulted with journals belonged to previous head of Cavendish where to her shock, every single one of them had encountered Elder Erik at least once.
The problem about facing Elder Erik is his greater experiences in combat. Akko may able blast the crap out of him several times, but to ensure she beaten up for good, she will need some assistance from her friends.
If anything, Chariot wanted to ensure Akko and her friends being better than Nine Olde Witches.
Surely you now know that Little Witch Academia: Witches of Midgard now set after episode 25 of the anime. Do you have some ideas about how Akko figuring out of her being human incarnation of powerful serpentine beast that came close in destroying the world?
It's not just Diana who wonder whether Nidhoggr aka Great Lindworm evil. Most people from Thapoli sees the serpent in more positive light and according to some records, Nidhoggr redeemed itself by turned against Loki in the end during Ragnarok.
The actual concern however, is not about whether Akko ended up destroy the world, but rather history that would likely repeat itself. I mean, by the time Akko discovered the fact that she is Great Lindworm's human incarnation, Loki already return and it was propechied that Akko and reincarnated Loki will fight for each other like their past selves did.
- The place where she trains with a broom when she was little was at the Kagari family shrine.
- At one point, Akko did took hobby collecting insects which explains her recongnizing that the parasites were the Papilodiya.
- Akko's loyalty to Shiny Chariot and Luna Nova was the result of her tutelage of the Kagari samurai ways. Its because of this loyalty that Akko was determined to bring Diana home which also break the cycle of destroyed bonds between mentor and student.
- Somehow, Akko got into an elephant sanctuary and rode one much to her grandparents' distress.
The shrine would be where the skull of an Orochi drake being kept by Kagari family since Heian era.
Remember when you proposed Sucy as some sort of dark elf and spy before siding with Akko and co.? Revisiting that idea, it make me imagining that Sucy's family, Manbavaran family, actually descended from a clan of evil witches who turned against Naglfar in the past and fled to Mamba islands. A hint of it shown through Sucy's familiarity with Jötnar and when confronting Elder Erik, he cried out how her ancestors supposedly meant to be Naglfar's greatest assets upon recognizing her as Manbavaran.
- Following the Vajarois's freedom, many of the students and Witch alumni congratuled Akko for her bravery, a traited appreciated by some of the alumi, even the main three who were previous sacrifices. One of them even recommends that Akko should get the Baldur Medal which she later receives after repairing the friendship between the Faeries and Witches with witnesses testifying for her.
Elements for Constanze:
- Constanze is actually a Shiny Chariot fan but she got over it quicker than Akko and Diana could.

We might as well play the idea that Nidhoggr as an evil creature but Diana begins to question history if that is what it seems until learning that Nidhoggr is good.
Back about the topic above, I have established that the Great Lindworm (or you might called it Nidhoggr) best to have more symphatetic light which explained why it ended up reincarnated into Akko in the first place: In spite of its presence at Midgard repeatedly caused multiple earthquakes that break mountains, empty lakes and destroy cities, the legendary serpent never display hostility to anyone it encountered and simply left them alone. The only reason why it ultimately attacked humanity was due to Loki's control. Of course, Great Lindworm hated this and as soon as it broke free from its control, it assisted Heimdall and Nine Olde Witches wiping out Jotnar and dismembered Loki. The pain from having its freedom stolen and had to die at hands of its tormentor was what led Beatrix Cavendish to reincarnated it soul where it eventually reborn into Akko.
The Great Lindworm itself is inspired by creature in this video:
I have 2 plausible reasons: One, Chariot blamed herself for her indirect role in Croix's fall to darkness through not taking her quest for words seriously as Croix wanted and worst of all, Croix's actions would make her a potential international criminal that will be terminated on sight. If everyone ended up want Croix dead, Chariot rather deal her former best friend personally as she cannot bear someone else killed her instead.
Did I? Darn, it must because I too occupied in improving some pages in Little Witch Academia wiki that I failed to notice whether I post some message twice by accident. Sorry about that. I'll remove the copied message soon.
Ron PRL wrote:
Here's a twist: What if Akko owns a Dragon as Familiar. It would be a reversal when the Dragon from OVA was an antagonist.
Cool. I already have an idea in my mind where the said dragon/dragon-like familiar looked like creature on the image on the left. It's actually based on an old idea before settled with Biri Biri aka. Shiny Flash for LWA Ragnarok though. Glad I finally use it.
And once again, I terribly sorry for misunderstanding due to me posted my message twice repeatedly. It was a pure accident that sometimes happen. I supposedly not overlook it.
Throughout second cour, it's clear that Croix had spread negativities in her plan to harvest fuel spirit from people, and each of her plan brought worse consequences than another as Chariot know it. Dream Fuel Spirit and her first few schemes already bad, but exploiting and escalating the riot between the countries has crossed the line.
In episode 22, it become apparent that Great Britain had history of rivalries with a rival nation that recently worsen due to controversial soccer verdict between both countries. By the time Croix learned about it, the controversy has escalated into riot between nation which she then exploit to harvest some Fuel Spirit Energy from rioters. When Croix unveiled her true nature to Akko in episode 22, she deliberately escalated the riot that by episode 24, it's already a matter of time before the riot erupts into armed conflicts.
By that point, it's clear negativities spread by Croix just to gather enough Fuel Spirit to power Noir Rod has potential to cause all-out war between countries across the planet, started from Great Britain and their rival nation. If it happens, innocent lives will suffer as Chariot know it. I might have exaggerated the part where Akko being first to suffer, but the sight of Akko crying opened Chariot's eyes that all this time, whatever friendship she had with Croix made her holding her back that it indirectly harmed those she protect. In certain point of view, Chariot deliberately abandoned Akko so she won't see her killing Croix.
My explanation above might very convuluted, but you'll understand it upin rewatching episode 21 to 24.
Your proposed ideas above sounds interesting, though I'm not so sure how would I use them. Even so, I likely only able to use the first as the idea where Holbrooke's father was part of the Nalgfar/Thapolian War might not work.
The first person who figured out the Great Lindworm never a malevolent monster from start and even befriends the legendary serpent in the past was Beatrix Cavendish. In many ways, the friendship between Beatrix and Great Lindworm paralleled with that of Akko and Diana.
When she and her friends visiting Thapoli, Akko had recurring dream where Luna Nova had been deserted and the Great Lindworm circling around the school where it tried to guide her into a place called The Eye of Odin. Through the said dream, Akko found the alleged Eye of Odin, an old ruins built on a small island at a lake not far from Thapoli where she found skeletal remains of a giant serpent inside. Akko then suddenly found herself transported to another realm where she found herself confronting apparation of Great Lindworm itself. The battle culminates with Akko figured out that she is in fact, human incarnation of the legendary Great Lindworm itself and the apparation before her is actually her past self that tried to communicate with her.
In certain point of view, it might be true. However, I actually meant to say that Chariot had lost her faith on Croix and the sight of Akko crying is the wake up call to reminds her that Croix must be stopped with one way or another, not about believing Akko hating her forever when the truth comes out. She too wished magic to be restored, but not at expense of her loved ones.
Um, did you mean Beatrix is protective to Akko's past self or something?
To me, it was intense pressure like when she loses herself to use the Shiny Rod to blow a scar on the moon. She was already suffering guilt and having to admit the truth to Akko at the worst possible time causes her to break down. She couldn't bear it anymore after having that one last chance to say to her and she already hated herself having to keep that secret for so long. Even Diana from her point of view thinks Chariot abandon Akko for selfish reasons. What do you say about that?
Beatrix realize that Akko is the Great Lindworm and wants to protect her and she knew her old friend had good intentions.
You got the point. That guilt also reason she lost her faith on Croix. Both her and Croix had done awful things and Woodward had indirect role on it, and the fact Croix let herself consumed by bitterness to the point of seemingly become a heartless monster not helpful either.
Speaking of Woodward in my opinion, she left the two out of guilt and anger. She tried to revive magic back but instead cause these two to fall and get angry because she may have the same sentiment with Diana, "I'm disappointed in you today than in the past."
The worst thing a Witch could ever experience is that the founder of witches and magic disown you. You truly are the worst witch in existence. Which makes it worse that the two believe that Woodward left them to die by the Noir Rod.
Akko and Chariot: The two grew from Teacher to Student to bonds between peers, helping each other when the other is down on herself. Chariot outright admits that should the world turned against Akko, she would willingly side with her friend.
Akko and Woodward: The two finally meet when Akko discuss about her origins as the Great Lindworm. Woodward formally apologizes to Akko for the troubles her two former students have done but Akko advises that it isn't healthy to linger in the past but instead do what was current.
Diana and Sucy: Sucy helps Diana develop new medicines.
Are you saying Woodward left Chariot and Croix out of disappointment and shame for her part in the two friends' fallout? Your statements above sounds as if Woodward nothing but jerk who merely used them for her own gain in spite of her intention being good from start.
- I think it was before that. Chariot has already witness how far Croix was going to do for the sake of her own glory. She gloats about killing Akko right in front of Chariot. Now that Croix learn that Akko was a victim of her DFS, Chariot couldn't risk her former friend to do whatever horrible things to Akko. We already had an indication that Chariot wanted to blame Croix but stop after seeing Akko. Instead, Chariot lies to Akko that she took her magic in an effort to protect her student from anymore harm from Croix and even them there's a lot of regret in her words. The last thing we saw of Chariot is her heart died from losing her only friend in the world.
- By the way, did Akko really intend to leave Luna Nova or did she meant it that she was willing to stay for Lotte and the others?
In either way, Chariot know how far Croix had fallen.
About Akko, judging from how Diana found her, Akko found herself lost, unsure what to do. Wanting to leave Luna Nova, the resolve to do that seemed not strong enough, nor even to continue her education either. It was good thing Diana know how to help her.
What will happened if Croix figured out Diana snapped Akko from her depressiom? Would she immediately send her magitronics to attack them by force or leaving them alone?
I don't know whether you noticed it, but I established that Helviti have some history with Croix. Do you found it plausible if Helviti turned out have created actual war machines based on some of Croix's magitronics?
Speaking of Akko, I did mention that Akko's worship towards Chariot seems to be based on the loyalty of samurai which makes sense of her Japanese descent. Chariot's descent is that of love which is why it mix well with Akko. The way Akko want to thank Chariot seems to be that of someone who is honor bound to someone who she feels indebted to. Hence, because of this, Akko extends the loyalty to her teachers, classmates and even the Faeries. I think while Diana was right to protect her family, Akko makes a good point if its worth losing loyalty to those who care for you.
Another thing where their fallout began was when Chariot took an offer to become an idol. Woodward offered the same thing to Akko but Akko refused to do that when the price was losing the memories of those she cares for. Chariot chose to become an idol and neglected Croix.
If anything, I can only say Woodward being saddened and disappointed with strife between her students which she indirectly had role in it. Although, in episode 25, we can see her similing that Chariot and Croix has make amends to each other.
I absolutely fine with that. I felt it would be even better if she learned the full story of what actually happened.
Would the series had been more effective if Croix expose Chariot's identity and the use of DFS very earlier around Episode 15 and Akko spends the second season, continuing to get the words to get her lost powers but also discover to forgive her teacher?
In case if you don't know, for Sucy's background and family in Little Witch Academia: Witches of Midgard, I combined aspects from both Teri Terio manga and Satou Keisuke manga where she lived with her biological family which includes her mother Mrs. Manbavaran and siblings includes Garie and Sabi and has Ramzan Manbavaran as her aunt who runs an orphanage at their home. What do you think?
Anyway, what do you think about this draft below, Ron PRL? It is the scene where Akko managed to reason with Lara by reminding her her commitment to the dream Biri Biri instilled in her and revealed how much Biri Biri traumatized by his murder on her family in the aftermath of their emotional and intense duel at Wagadea:
By the time Ursula, Amanda, Molly, and Biri Biri catch up with Akko and Lara in the woods not far from Wagandea, they found both girls severely beaten up and pushed to the brink of exhaustion from fighting each other, but still able to get on their feet. Lara may now a resilient eitr-enhanced draugr, but she now has reached her limits due to her armor's magic gone haywire from accidental exposure to the pollen which would've killed her had Akko not disengaged her armor by force in time. Akko aims a nocked magic arrow on Lara and pulling back her bladed bow's string, ready to release her fingers and let it loose. However, after a moment of hesitation, the magic arrow disappears into emerald light as the Japanese young Valkyrie tossed her bladed bow aside. With a loud metallic clang, the bladed bow returned to its basic Valkyrie Blade form.
Akko: Enough of this, Lara! I don't want to fight you anymore.
Lara: Then why are you get in my way?
Akko: Because if you keep doing this, you're no better than Biri Biri who killed your family!
Lara: That's a kind of point here! He killed my family!
Akko: Then what? You going to kill him? Is that what you really want?
Lara: What am I supposed to do?! My entire life I wanted to be like him, and it was all a lie! It was all for nothing! Everyone think of him as a hero, but the truth is, he's a murderer!
Akko: That's right, but he's also your family. He took you in when nobody else wanted you. Both of you are a family.
As this happens, Constanze, Jasminka, Lotte, Sucy, and Diana closing in from the sky before Diana signaled them to stop, keeping their distance with Akko and Lara close enough for them to overhear both exhausted girls' conversation. Constanze and Lotte ready their weapons to assist their friend, only for Diana signaled them to stand down, as one wrong step could end in blood.
Akko: I don't really understand what happened between you and Biri Biri, but I can understand what you feel right now. I also have a role model to looked up to. She's my hero and my teacher. Shiny Chariot... Or I supposedly called her Ursula-sensei. I wanted to be like her as much as you to be like Biri Biri... until I figured out it was all a lie. She... stole my magic, and because of it, I can't do anything right. She ruined my life on the same day she inspired me.
Lara: Then why you still love her? You supposedly hate her for what she had done to you.
Akko: I wanted to hate her, Lara! I wanted to take out all my anger at her for lying on my face! But... after all things we went through together and figuring out how much she truly loves me, I don't know what to think. In time I realized it's never entirely a lie from start: Ursula-sensei just wanted to inspire everyone, not hurting them. Because of it, ever since she absorbed my magic, she was suffered and tried her best to set things right. I'm sure Biri Biri felt the same way after he killed your family. If he's not, then why he always keeping this? (showing Lara a paper depicting doodle of herself and Biri Biri smiling)
Lara: (eyes widen) That's... !
Akko: Yes. Your old doodle with Biri Biri's. He always carry this wherever he go. It's the proof that he still love you like his own daughter no matter what. He took you in so you can regain what you lost; your innocence and your family. You have every right to be mad at him, Lara. But severing your ties with him and making him suffer... was that really your answer? Back then, I could've took the same path with you, but I didn't, thanks to Diana. That's why I wanted to help you, just like Diana did.
Biri Biri: (coming out of his hiding without warning) What Miss Kagari said is true.
Akko: Biri Biri!?
Ursula: What?! (gasped before turns on her side where Biri Biri previously hiding only to see him missing, then back on Akko, Lara, and Biri Biri) Biri Biri!
Lotte and Sucy: (simultaneously yelled) Biri Biri!
Amanda: Old squirrel!
Biri Biri: It pained me to say it, but you have a point. Back when the war began, I and the rest of my kind never know about concept of violence until Naglfar trying to destroy us all. We had to stood up for ourselves or facing inevitable extinction. However, without realizing it, our anger blinded us from the fact that we slowly became more and more like our enemies until it's too late. For the same reason, I, who never know how my own parents looked like, traded my innocence with the life of a ruthless assassin, and it costed me greatly. I killed many who deserved it, and many more who do not.
Lighting flashes on the sky as the rain begins to slowly pouring down the Arcturus Forest.
Biri Biri: Lara, I was very young, no older than you when I killed your family. When I found you alone starving in the forest, I began to worry. I didn't want to believe it. But after I raised you like my own daughter, the more certain I became. I took you in to soothe my guilty conscience. Everyone thought of us as happy father and daughter, but everytime I looked at you, I saw your parents' eyes staring back at me. If anything, I wished I never met you and your family as enemies, so we can spent our time together with them... along with mine that I never know.
Lara looking at both Akko and Biri Biri's eyes, and then her old doodle on Akko's hand. She recalled how she finally made Biri Biri smile with it, along with other happy memories surrounding it, which includes how she ended up lost in the mountain just for after that picture when it blown by the winds, with Biri Biri troubled himself to find her. Return to reality, Lara realized she's not seeing Akko and Biri Biri, but rather her happier younger self and that of Biri Biri. Her eyes gradually inched downward, looking at Spear of Torment still held in her hands. She then looks up, at older Biri Biri's sad expression and the full weight of her actions hit her at once. With a sharp gasp, the magical spear dropped from her hands.
Lara: (eyes widen in horror) I... W-what have I been doing all this time? I did... I did terrible things to you, and yet you still here for me.
Biri Biri: It's okay, Lara. The anger you feel towards me is understandable. I deserved it, as I never a good father from start. Fighting is the only best thing that I can do.
Lara: That’s not true! You always a good father to me. I'm angry to you because you took my real family and I don't know where I came from. But no matter how hard I tried to hate you, I can never bring myself to it. The only thing I remember about my past is you, Biri Biri. I know you wanted me to return to you, but looking at me now, I'm not sure it'll going to happen.
Suddenly, almost without warning, Lara abrasively rubbed her Herja Gauntlet, summoning her armor from a green portal which wrapped itself around her in a blinding flash of green light. This prompts Constanze to aim her gun at Lara, only for Akko hastily disarm her with a weak magic bolt that knocked it off her hands. As this happens, an unforeseen miracle occured: The orange glow on Lara's Herja armor shifts back to its original green color as its midnight blue corroded away, revealing silverish color beneath. The same thing happens on her armor's mechanical wings; as they sprout from her back, the wings magically reconfigure to better, more angelic form.
Ursula: The armor's corruption is gone.
Sucy: Is that Herja armor? I thought it is dark blue.
Diana: That's because the armor had been tainted with forbidden magic which increased its combat capabilities. The pollen must have broken its dark enhancements, unveiling its true form.
Akko: So it's true. You are the Silver Valkyrie.
Lara: (looking at her armor's restored silver radiance, she smiled weakly before turned on Biri Biri) I really wished we can be a happy family like we used to be, Biri Biri. But as you know it, I am neither truly alive nor truly dead, the shadow of a cheerful girl I used to be. Right now Naglfar must have suspecting that I disobeyed them. Even though I know my birth family were in league with them, I have no interest with their goals. I'm not even sure what am I going to do next. As of now, what I really wanted to say is thank you. (with that, she takes off to the sky and fly away)
Akko: Lara, wait! (rushes towards Lara only for her legs begin to numb and started to fell. Fortunately, Ursula managed to grab her hand before she landed on her face.)Ursula-sensei?
Ursula: It's okay, Akko. Just let her go for now.
Akko: This... this isn't right. She really shouldn't...
Biri Biri: There's no need to chase her, Akko. You have done well. (suddenly smacks Akko on the head) WHY ON EARTH YOU PUSHED YOURSELF SO HARD, YOU DUMMY!!! (hugs Akko and started to cry on her chest) Thank you Akko, for stopping me... and Lara.
Akko can't help but smile, before noticing that Lara had left her Spear of Torment behind. Even though she failed in bringing Lara back to Biri Biri, her words managed to reach her crippled heart where through it all, one thing is clear: The cheerful and happy girl Biri Biri used to know and love not completely lost.
To me, I would have preferred that Akko and Lara both exchange words about loss and Akko hugged Lara who tried to burn her with her powers until Lara broke down and cries about the lost childhood and betrayal. Biri Biri comes and Lara looks at him in silence until she hugs him.
The reason I made it that way is because Lara's pain is technically greater than Akko's that simply exchanging words and hug is not enough. It's too hasty. Believe it or not, it is also what Akko wanted, but she knew better it won's be that simple. But in the next meeting, it would be like what you wanted.

Why do you think Chariot took personal responsibility for using Dream Fuel Spirit even though it was Croix fault? Akko was everything to her.
As I said before, the sight of Akko being victim of Croix's deception on her alarmed Chariot that Croix is beyond saving and Akko is merely among firsts to suffer.
Could you elaborate on that? How could the sight of Akko being victim of Croix's deception on her alarmed Chariot that Croix is beyond saving and Akko is merely among firsts to suffer.
Also, here's some ideas:
- There will be a Civil War between Helvitti and her machines, Elrik and his Coven and Hel and his Draugr and Jotnar.
- Holbrooke's father was part of the Nalgfar/Thapolian War.
While I doubt I can use the idea of Holbrooke's dad being part of Naglfar/Thapolian war, I found the idea about Civil War between Helviti, Elder Erik, and Hel interesting. It is because Civil War idea can further elaborate how miserable Naglfar's current state after Thapoli-Naglfar War:
After the war, Naglfar had been reduced into shadows of their former selves, having forced into hiding from Thapoli and Sword of Laeradr (a faction comprised of Pomokai Holoholonas who allied with Thapoli). The desperation to return for power not only drove them attempting to steal or salvage lost technology they could find, but also worsening whatever schism growing between themselves. To top it off, Diana received reports from Egil which stating that Naglfar had found itself dividing to the point they now have no clear leader. Helviti, Hel, and Elder Erik may still allies with the Goddess of Death as sort of voice of reason, but there's still.chance they would ended up turn on each other. They also occasionally cross paths with splintered factions, but only work together if they have common goal. If not, they'll fight eav other.
In battle, Akko awakens some of her old memories causing her to be taken control without her conscience by her old self, the Great Lindworm and battle Helvitti, Elrik and Naglfar's top lieutenants and defeats them.
I don't know if I say this but when Chariot saw what kind of relationship Woodward had with Croix and she left without even saying any much of an apology, Chariot just stare at this how much alike this relationship was similar to her own with Akko. Her sadness was that of anger at herself for ruining Croix and Akko but disappointment at Woodward for leaving in a cowardly manner.
Colossi - Colossi were a mass produced line of weapons of mass destruction sharing resemblance and body type of Magic Knight Grand Charion.
The Colossi were created after Ragnarok took place. Several Thapolian blacksmiths proposes the idea to built giant machines to battle the growing power of the Lindworms controlled by Loki. This met with mixed reaction with the Thapolian military council and human leaders approving the idea while the Thapolian Royal family and The Nine Olde Witches are against it. Eventually, the dire of the situation of the war forces everyone to comply.
Immediately after their construction, the Colossi were sent out across Midgard to battle the Jotnar forces. The plan was successful but by the near end of Ragnarok, most of the Colossi were destroyed with some small number of survivor remained. The Colossi were decommisioned and were secretly disguised as war ships including one used by the Sword of Laeradr.
The Colossi are giants up to the size of the modern days tallest skyscrapers. They possess highly durable alloy allowing them to withstand even a nuclear explosion. They possess great strength that allows them to perform various feats which would be impossible. All Colossi possess a Sorceror Stone which fuels them.
Colossi are armed with Beowulf-class Missile Launchers located at the side of the feet, Freeze Shoulder Cannons, the standard Single Murowa Arm Cannon, Mini Lightning Chest Cannons, Triple Heat Cannon and a Hyper Arc Head Cannon which it can transform when the Collosi's head rotate itself to the cannon.
The Defense on Niflheim
The battle took place in the aforementioned Niflheim where Team Glosscap led by Clarisse O Neil defend the Leyline portal to Midgard from a Jotnar elite squad named Team Hyperion.
All across the Nine realms, the Valkyrie Corps were stretched thin when Jotnar resistance attacked every Leyline portal to Midgard. The most devastating attacking was at Nilflheim where Team Hyperion attack Leyline 922-B. Team Glosscap fought the best they could but were outmatched. An Arabian Valkyrie lost her legs after taking a blast while a French Valkyrie was devoured and used as ammo by a Frog Jotnar.
Clarrise shot the leading Jotnar allowing what remains of her team to escape and head to the Leyline. But before they meet up with their leader, they were attacked by a Swamp class Frost Jotnar and a Jotnar with two katana like swords.
Clarrise was alone and tried to defend the Leyline with her life. After being hit by a powerful shockwave by a Beetle Jotnatr, Clarrise was killed by the Swamp Jotnar who release a poweful toxin. Clarrise's sacrifice however bought enough time for Valkyrie Corp reinforcements to arrive and stop the attempt.
Not sure whether I can use it due to established lore in the series, but I'll see about that. However for ships that can transform into robot, it's likely that its ship form modeled after drakkar ship in Age of Mythology game, and won't be overpowered like that.
