Values: Knowledge
Likes: Knowledge
Dislikes: Ignorance

Arakune is a black, blob-like creature with a white mask and a playable character. He formerly worked alongside Kokonoe, Tager and Litchi in Sector Seven. He was formerly a human named Lotte "Roy" Carmine. After an attempt to study the link between the Boundary, the Azure Grimoire, and the Black Beast and eventually managed to find a way to briefly enter the Boundary due to his inferiority complex over Kokonoe's genius, he became what he is today, now housing innumerable insects with his now-blobby body and thriving on knowledge. His horrible condition has rendered him virtually insane and lacking any reliable memory, as well as distorting his speech to near incoherency – most of his dialogue consists of gibberish, insane laughter and tortured screaming – but it seems that Litchi and Kokonoe can understand his speech.

He is very obsessed with finding the Azure Grimoire and wants it for himself, to the point of even trying to consume Ragna multiple times in the story. He had a hard time remembering Litchi when he was human, but slowly regained memories of his life, and started to remember Kokonoe and Relius, the latter being hated by Arakune.

Description

Arakune when he was still a human and a researcher at Sector Seven. His dialogue between many characters, as well as his Arcade Mode ending, suggest that it was the power and knowledge he obtained from the Boundary that gradually turned him into what he is, and notably he does not seem to have noticed that he is changed, and to him, his bizarre speech is completely normal. He seems to not understand why others cannot understand him, creating a crude mask for himself thinking it would allow others to understand what he is saying.

As he wanted to observe the Abyss of the Azure, he followed a theory which brought him closest to the truth that he was seeking. That is why he attempted to refine himself into the Azure Grimoire. It is shown that he fused himself with some seithr from the Boundary, which then turned his mind upside down and started going insane, not to mention forgetting the people close to him. Because of this, he also started creating reports only about the Azure - which were all rejected by Kokonoe.
