Noel Vermillion is a lieutenant of the Novus Orbis Librarium who is assigned to return the AWOL Jin Kisaragi to his post, and his secretary as well. She is a playable character and the main heroine in the BlazBlue series. She is the adopted daughter of the Vermilion family, which used to be a noble family.

Noel is the definition of the "shrinking violet" archetype. She is shy, clumsy, and tends to get worked up over the smallest things. Noel is extremely self-conscious, especially regarding her notoriously flat breasts. She can be socially awkward at times, but this has actually served as an endearing trait, which earned her Tsubaki and Makoto's friendship. In spite of this, she is shown to be quite passionate and determined when motivated, and is loyal to her friends and allies.
Then there's the soft and unfettered side to her personality that shows compassion to every person and being, and how everyone is being treated. With her job out of the way, she enjoys relaxing with friends and reminiscing, nostalgically. When she cares for others' well-being, she overlooks her traits and is much more responsible. It's also shown that she is completely at a loss when she loses her guns: she starts crying and throwing a tantrum, just like a baby.

The term Lacking Lady, made by Taokaka, directed at Noel Vermillion, is one thing she can't seem to stand, though being called a boy or a man is worse. Each sets off a domino effect. The first makes her feel vulnerable and then ponder her role as a woman as she looks to other woman with bigger breasts. The second triggers a dormant volcano of emotion that is then directed at the person who makes the remark. When she is finally angry, she puts aside all shame and forlorn and builds up the confidence to abuse her title of position to call it, "Obstruction of Justice!"

<hidden by spoiler settings>Noel is actually μ-No.12-, the twelfth Murakumo Unit made and said to be the most succesful one as well. Her real age is closer to 5. Due to being Saya's clone, she possesses some of her memories, and this is why she also looks very similar to her. Made by Sector Seven in Ibukido to become the heart for the Black Beast and to fuse with Hazama, the body, she was to be made in the middle of the Ikaruga Civil War to become the ultimate weapon for Sector Seven to use against the NOL. However, this plan was thwarted by Takamagahara System as they fired Gigant: Take-Mikazuchi upon the city, utterly obliterating every living being within the blast radius. Mu, in the stage of being smelted, and thus, in a cocoon, was saved from the same fate as the others, but left without an identity. She was later found and then subsequently adopted by Edgar and Claire Vermillion and christened as Noel Vermillion. When she turns into this form, she becomes completely void of emotion, just appearing as a cruel and cold killing machine. Her Bolverk are actually not just her weapons, but also for keeping her emotions in control.

<hidden by spoiler settings>In reality, Noel is the other half of the very first prime field device, "The Origin", which resides inside Master Unit: Amaterasu. However, she then escaped at some point in her life from it, and possessed Mu-12 until they split up into two completely different entities.

Description

Hobbies: Destruction
Values: None
Likes: Destruction
Dislikes: The world

Mu-12 is the true form of <hidden by spoiler settings>Noel Vermillion. Through Yuuki Terumi's ambitions, she fused with the true Azure, and awoke as the Sword of the Godslayer Kusanagi, someone who can possibly kill a God.
μ-No.12- is an emotionless killing machine who wants the world to be destroyed. She only acts based on Terumi's orders, and she believes that the world "hates her", and is filled with nothing but lies. <hidden by spoiler settings>However, after Noel gained control over her powers and transformation into Mu, she now retains her normal personality and emotions when in Mu's form. Upon transforming willingly, Noel noticeably becomes more "in control" of her emotions, as opposed to when she felt as though she blacked out when fighting using Bolverk. She is also shown to be more confident and outspoken, though she still has some degree of shyness and embarrassment regarding her rather revealing attire, particularly when facing Ragna, especially facing Kagura.
