Gerheade「ゲラード」 is a fairy and serves as an adviser to the second Fairy King, Dahlia and is the younger sister of Gloxinia, the first Fairy King.
Gerheade wears a long yellow dress that covers the stumps of her legs lost at the knees and a green hat adorned with a flower that covers her right eye socket which was slashed by one of the human members of Stigma. She also wears earrings that match her pointy ears and wings, and a fruit wand.
3,000 years ago, Gerheade's wings were longer, she had both eyes, she had both legs along with wearing a shorter dress and wielding a different fruit wand.
Gerheade is a mysterious, strange and aloof fairy, but takes her job as adviser and the Fairy tradition very seriously. Like most fairies, she has a distaste and mistrust towards humans, which lead to her original animosity towards Ban. This hate she has may stem from the betrayal Rou and his comrades dealt to her during the Holy War. As harsh as she seems to be, she greatly cares for her fellow Fairies and wants to protect them.
During the Holy War, Gerheade is shown to be almost completely different from what she is right now with King himself being befuddled by the drastic contrast in her character. At that time she has a more kind, cheerful and innocent persona as she felt great empathy for others regardless of race including demons as she felt saddened by Ludociel's plan to use the demon citizens as hostages and bait though reluctantly accepted it as she was desperate for the war to end then. Her empathy allowed her to befriend humans then like Rou and even trusted them more so than now as even after she was shocked and wounded from the betrayal of him and his comrades, she still sympathized with his loss that drove him to killing Stigma in revenge to point of trying to plead for his life to her older brother.
3,000 years agoEdit
3000 years ago, Gerheade lived in the Fairy King's Forest along with her brother Gloxinia, the first Fairy King. During the Holy War, Gerheade stayed on the side of Stigma. She wanted the war to end at any cost, so she did nothing despite knowing about Ludociel's horrible plans of using demons held hostage as a living bait to destroy the rest of them. While her brother faced the Ten Commandments, Gerheade stayed in the forest under the care of a human named Rou. However, Rou and the rest of the humans attacked Stigma and began to kill everyone in the forest. Gerheade tried to reason with Rou, but then she was attacked by a human who left her without her right eye and cut off her wings and legs. After Rou killed him, he and Gerheade talked about Rou's past that led him to take revenge on Stigma, just as Gerheade took everything as punishment for doing nothing to Ludociel's actions. When Gloxinia appears to be witnessing the horrible scenario, Gerheade tried to explain what happened but could not prevent Gloxinia from murdering Rou. Somehow, Gerheade survived and continued alive for 3000 years.
Long ago, Gerheade was once an adviser to the old Fairy King, Dahlia, until he died and was soon replaced by King to whom she became an adviser for. However, this soon ended when King went missing after a rescue mission went wrong and eventually left the forest and Elaine to protect the Fountain of Youth. Gerheade later returned to the forest when Ban regrew the forest, but still disliked him for being human.
After Ban returns to the Fairy King's Forest to give some of his blood to keep the tree healthy, Gerheade appears and tells him that Fairy Kings are chosen by the Sacred Tree, that she dislikes Ban, and that she still believes King to be the true heir to the Fairy Clan. However, Ban reveals that he does not want the job and that King can have it; however, she soon reveals her true plan and attacks Ban, hoping to use him for more blood for the tree. While Ban has the upper hand, he is soon distracted when she threatens Elaine's body. Ban leaps in front of the vine, protecting Elaine but also letting himself get trapped. She leaves the chamber and finds King fighting an Albion. When the Fairies start to fight back, she takes King far away to protect him. He, instead, unleashes True Chastiefol to slay the creature, and is injured in the process.
Afterwards, she held King as Ban healed him, and then tried to apologize to and thank Ban, who interrupted her and told never to endanger Elaine. She promised to protect Elaine.
In the forest, Gerheade fells when Melascula opens the gate of the dead world and summon the souls of the deceased. There, Gerheade is present along the other fairies as Elaine is returned to life. However, she and the other fairies are attacked by an Elaine dominated by her hatred. Gerheade tries to reason with her, but Elaine attacks her with her Soyokaze not Gekirin for what she did to Ban.
When the Ten Commandments takes out their conquest over Britannia, Gerheade maintains safe along the other fairies grants to the Fairy King's Forest magical burden.
After reunited with King, Gerheade adverts him about a strange presence that she was feeling around the forest, although she can identify or clarify it. While King decides to let everyone to have a good moment to dance and mashes merry, Gerheade shows happy. There, when everyone enters a strange trance, Gloxinia introduces himself and has a close moment with Gerheade when dancing. Upon returning from the trance and notice the emergence of King and Diane, Gerheade cries for a happiness and familiarity that fails to understand.
After putting King and Diane in trial, Gloxinia finally meets with Gerheade after 3,000 years. Gloxinia asks his sister for forgiveness for his past actions, Gerheade forgives him affirming that everything is in the past. When Oslo sees Gloxinia embracing Gerheade, he immediately tries to attack him, but Gerheade stops him by telling him that he is not the enemy. When Gerheade tells her brother about Oslo, who protect her after his disappearance, Gloxinia realizes that he is actually Rou's reincarnation.
When the Fairy King's Forest is attacked by the Demon Clan, Gerheade alongside Matrona directs the other giants and fairies to defend the forest.
Gerheade is able to hear the voice of Rou's soul after Oslo's death, saying that at the end he protects what she most value.
