Overview

Ignes Kravei (Kor. 이그네스 크라베이) is the daughter of Roctis Kravei and the main antagonist of Volume 6. After Roctis' death[1], she is now supposedly the new clan leader of the Kravei Clan.

Appearance

Ignes has long, wavy, black hair, pale skin and the characteristic crimson red eyes of a Noble. She is rather tall and has an athletic frame. She has showcased two apparels so far. One is a pink top paired with black pants. In her latest appearance she wears a black lipstick, a black cropped turtleneck with gold zipper and black pants paired with high heels. When in the lab in Roctis' Island, she is shown to have shorter hair than before.

Personality

Upon her debut, Ignes appeared a cheerful person on the outside. But beneath her smiling demeanor lies an extremely demented and egocentric personality that even her father cannot fully control. Deprived of being the Clan Leader due to her father's continued existence, she is enraged that the current Clan Leaders, her juniors by hundreds of years, possess powers she only dreams of having. That has led to her developing an obsession over physical modification in order to enhance her abilities. She is also shown to be a megalomaniac, expressing her desire to reign over all walks of life on earth (Nobles, humans, werewolves, all). She is cowardly and will try bargain to save her own skin from a superior foe when she has no way out. She believes that all humans are greedy and thus manipulatable if she offers information, money or whatever she believes the other seeks.

Background

Ignes Kravei, the daughter of Roctis Kravei and heir to the Kravei Clan, is considerably older (at least several hundred years more) than all other current Clan Leaders (except Gejutel). She killed humans for fun and her father was forced to betray Rai and Lukedonia in order to protect her from nobles rules. She mentions knowing the parents of Seira and Regis and even calls them 'kids'. She had left Lukedonia with her father 500 years prior to Rai's awakening, when the revolt against the current Lord had happened. Since then she has been living with her father in the Union engaging herself in research.

The position of the 13th Elder was originally supposed to go to her; however, her destructive personality led Roctis to object, and Dr. Crombel was made Elder instead.

Plot Overview

Ignes makes her first appearance when Roctis Kravei and 9th Elder are discussing about the contemporary events related to The Noblesse. She greets the 9th Elder telling him that when she has come to know about his visit, she was sure that he was with her father. She wonders if her father is all right as he seemed anxious. Roctis and the 9th Elder assure her that everything is fine. Later on, She joins 9th Elder for some experiments about which she seems really excited.

Volume 6

Ignes shows up on the visit of Dr. Crombel and accompanies him out. They acquaint themselves and Crombel lets it slip that some elders have been killed by the clan leaders recently which has left the Union disturbed. Ignes is left fuming with the wrath against the noble clan leaders of Lukedonia (against whom she has extreme inferiority complex).
Later she leaves with the anti-clan leader weapons and arrives in the city. She causes chaos to attract attention of the present nobles, an action which is answered by Seira and Regis who happened to be near the vicinity. Ignes is overjoyed to find a clan leader sample for her to take and experiment on - Seira J. Loyard. They engage in a battle after Seira dismisses Regis to protect the humans in the locality. Ignes proves to be superior even with the lack of a soul weapon. She further engages her 3 anti-clan leader weapons to capture Seira who ends up battle-worn and barely standing. Rael arrives and at first Ignes greets him cheerfully, even offering him to join his side; because she assumes he must suffer that inferior feeling of lacking a soul weapon too. However, to Ignes' shock, Rael brings out his Grandia to help Seira. Ignes, outraged at finding even Rael who is not a clan leader, owns a soul weapon, joins the fight herself. As Rael decapitates one of her weapons, she becomes more furious and ends the battle quickly, capturing Seira and parting with a blast directed towards Rael.
Ignes arrives in her father's island knowing that two nobles (Rael and Regis) have followed her. She informs the 9th Elder of this, sending him to capture those experimental samples. With all three samples acquired, Ignes draws out enough blood and cell sample from their body while providing them with regular dose of blasts at intervals to restrain their regeneration. She envisions cutting of their limbs to see if they could fit on a non-clan leader and enable the use of soul weapon. She even thinks of turning Regis into an anti-clan leader weapon.
But before she could perform experiments on them, Rai arrives. Ignes is horrified to see the Noblesse and roots to the spot. Rai takes away her right to utter his name and look at him. With her punishment pronounced, Ignes' eyes bleed profusely and she is rendered unable to see. Before Rai can punish her further for her atrocity, Roctis arrives to protect her. He takes on the Noblesse, telling Ignes to rely on her other senses to flee. This Ignes does and goes as far as she can without her vision while her father battles the Noblesse.
Sensing her father's death, Ignes rejoices at being finally able to own a soul weapon. She is desperate to try it out but restrains herself from risking the giving away of her location. Rather she decides to awaken Muzaka who was held captive in an experimental pod within the lab and use him to avenge her father's death by battling the Noblesse. Ignes strikes the switch of a remote control to activate the awakening and leaves with a malevolent grin.

Volume 7

After the failed invasion of Werewolves and Traitors, Ignes joins forces with the Lord of Werewolves, Maduke.

Volume 8

Ignes informs Maduke about the death of the three werewolves, who weren't able to endure the intensity of her experiments. She asks if he's upset about it, but Maduke replies that it's of no concern, since she had his approval. She asks for more test subjects, since the only one that survived her experiments is 'that woman' and how much longer she has to experiment on her alone. Maduke assures her that he will find more test subjects for her, and enquires about Muzaka, since she and 9th Elder continued experimenting on him, behind Maduke's back. She is surprised and he tells her that he only wants her opinion. She exclaims that he was an exceptional test subject, since no matter what they did to him, he'd always regenerate quickly. Maduke takes his leave, in the knowledge that he and Ignes are using each other, however, he hopes that Ignes will create someone stronger than Muzaka, which is why he gives into her insane demands.
After M-21 compares the werewolves experimenting on their own race, to the experiments he endured at the Union, Gayare attacks him, by punching him repeatedly. Ignes stops him, since she doesn't want her test subjects ruined. Gayare replies that it doesn't matter, as long as they're alive, and that she should mind her own business. Ignes responds that she has been given exclusive rights to them, by their Lord, she adds that he's looking for them and how much longer they intend on making him wait. At this, Gayare and Juraki leave. Ignes checks her specimens and becomes really excited at the experiments to come. M-21 smiles and tells Kentas to prepare himself, since they're stuck with a total lunatic.
Kentas is bloodied and worn out having undergone several torturous experiments at the hands of Ignes Kravei. She boasts about how he's better than the other test subjects that were discarded recently. Kentas asks what she's talking about, and she reveals that although she's the one conducting the experiments now, the experiments have been going on for a long time, and that when she saw the data, even she was surprised by the vast quantity. She adds that the experiments the werewolves have been conducting, were more intense and varied, than those performed by any other race and assumes it might be because of their impressive regenerative ability. She ends that the werewolves even managed to create a Chimera, and tells him to prepare for the next experiment, which because of his regeneration, can be conducted soon. Whilst leaving, she glances down at M-21 and wonders if she went too far with him, since he still hasn't regained consciousness, however, she brushes this off by stating that since he isn't dead, his recovery ability is formidable and that she's really lucky to have such wonderful test subjects.
Maduke requests an update on the experiments Ignes is performing. Ignes tells him that all is going well and that she'll be able to obtain more data than expected. He enquires about the experiment he mentioned specifically. Ignes replies that's also going smoothly, without any problems, and that the only problem is duration, but she'll have that resolved soon. Maduke asks if she's certain that what she's creating will overpower Muzaka. Ignes assures him that she knows Muzaka's abilities and weaknesses better than anyone, having studied him for centuries. Maduke tells her that Muzaka is going to arrive soon and orders Ignes to stop all other experiments and focus on finishing the experiment soon even if it means the loss of more werewolves in the process. Ignes agrees though she complains that the specimens won't survive for more than a day. Maduke doesn't care about that and promises to bring her more werewolves for experiments.
Ignes asks Gayare to bring her more werewolves for experiments. When Gayare becomes irritated at her request, she explains that the other warriors are doing the same and that their Lord has approved everything. They return to the lab where Kentas and M-21 were held captive, only to find both of them missing. Gayare asks her if they were moved to a new location but she answers that there weren't any plans to do so and that she was going to experiment on them in the current lab for a while. Gayare chastises her for being careless, but Ignes assures him that both M-21 and Kentas are physically exhausted due to the experiments so they couldn't have gone very far. Ignes is pleased by their escape as she realises that they had help. She plans to use their escape as an excuse to gain more authority from Maduke.
Ignes brings the two werewolf researchers, who released Kentas and M-21 from captivity before Maduke. She states that in order to exonerate herself, she has brought proof for all to see. Just as an enraged Maduke is about to do something unspeakable to the researchers, Ignes proposes that they be used for experimentation. Suddenly, a deafening explosion is heard from the direction of labs. While M-21 is making his escape, Ignes finds him, cutting off his escape. M-21 transforms and attacks her, Ignes is impressed by his transformation, however, her admiration turns to anger when she effortlessly stops M-21's fist with a single hand. Furious that a human guinea pig would dare lay a hand on her body, Ignes uses her power to wrap an aura rope around M-21's arm and proceeds to tighten it, so that blood splatters out of his arm.
Ignes having crushed M-21's arm states that she got excited and used her power, and that if she destroyed him, she wouldn't be able to gather any data. Noticing M-21's worn out state, she mockingly asks if she should wait for him to recover, at which M-21 attacks her. Ignes avoids M-21's attacks and scrutinises his movements and powers. She realises that his powers and abilities are much greater than the data she gathered in the lab and wonders if it's because of his transformation. She wonders who created him. She lets her guard down and M-21 manages to land a punch, knocking her back. This infuriates Ignes as she realises M-21 was holding back his power on purpose. Angry that he managed to land an attack, she goes all out and attacks him viciously, by wrapping an aura rope around his arms and torso and tightening it.
Ignes arrives at the scene of Kentas and Gayare's battle with a badly injured M-21. M-21 tries to wake Kentas up, by reminding him of his duties and the promise he made to the clan members who lost their lives due to the greed of their clan. Gotaru mockingly asks what he's mumbling about, Ignes replies, that it looks as though he still has a lot to say, even with his body completely ruined, and uses the opportunity to brutalise him into silence. M-21 resists and again calls out to Kentas, only for Ignes to turn up the brutality. Kentas staggers forth to attack her with an energy beam, which she blocks. Much to the shock of the werewolves and Ignes, Kentas is back on his feet.
Ignes is impressed with Kentas as he can still stand even after her experiments and his fight with Gayare, she rambles on her hypothesis, which irritates Gayare. Gayare tells Ignes to get lost, unless she has a death wish. When she refuses, Gayare approaches her, ready to make good on his threat. Uzhir stops Gayare from fighting with Ignes, reminding him that she is doing important work for their Lord. Uzhir also tells Ignes to not interfere as the matter is between warriors of their race. Ignes, thinks it's better to leave, as she notices the other 4 warriors aren't happy with her presence either. She leaves to let them settle their score of sanctimonious pride, and takes M-21 with her back to her lab, intending to take all her frustration out on him.
Lunark arrives at the lab to rescue Kentas, but ends up rescuing M-21 instead. She is alarmed by the arrival of Ignes. Ignes tells her that she should have left when she saw that her companion wasn't there, she smiles and asks her why she's touching someone else's property.
Ignes realises that Lunark has entered the labs in order to save Kentas, and chides that she should have disappeared quietly, when she found out Kentas wasn't in being held in the lab any longer and asks why she's stirring up trouble. Ignes demands an answer and states that she's not fooling around. Lunark glances at M-21 and wonders what she should do, and thinks why she had to run into Ignes now, of all times. Ignes comments that based on Lunark's refusal to answer and the look of tension on her face, she won't make her feel uncomfortable any longer and will let her leave. Lunark asks her what she means. Ignes remarks that she's letting her go, because she feels bad that Lunark was abandoned by her own people and tells her to be grateful. She continues that she'll let her leave on the condition she leaves her property (M-21) alone. Lunark laughs and tells her she's crazy if she thinks that she'll put up with her humiliating treatment and insults. Lunark releases her aura and states that she's been laying low too long. As the smoke clears, Ignes asks her what she's doing, since she was letting her go out of pity. Lunark tells her to shut her mouth and bring it on.
Ignes comments she thought Lunark would be weak since all of her companions look down on her, but she's actually quite impressive. Lunark tells her to stop being so arrogant, since even her father Roctis would watch his words around her. Ignes smiles and replies that she's already surpassed her father. Ignes informs Lunark that she's been trying to surpass the clan leaders since before she obtained her father's soul weapon, and was close to the old clan leaders in power, when she received her father's soul weapon. Lunark and Ignes continue their battle with Ignes gaining the upper hand, despite Lunark's best efforts. Ignes asks why she and Muzaka returned, and what the two of them could hope to accomplish by themselves. Lunark replies they've not come alone and that they came with someone who her father knew as well. Ignes realises she's talking about Rai and begins shaking violently. She makes her excuses and leaves the scene. Walking through the forest, she states that she can't help the involuntary response, but she will be the one to send Rai into his eternal sleep.
Ignes is sitting in her lab, preparing to leave. She states judging from the noises outside, they must really be going at it, and it's such a shame that she has to leave sooner than expected, since there was more data she could've obtained here. She suddenly flinches and turns to see Rai enter the lab. Rai glares at her.
Ignes turns to face Rai and asks if he's here because the werewolves attacked Lukedonia recently or if he's come here to get her. She grits her teeth asking if he really came all this way to get her. Ignes flinches as Rai speaks her name and asks her for the location of the human she was experimenting on. Ignes is speechless and wonders if he's talking about the human who's turning into a werewolf. Ignes asks why he's asking her about that human. Rai instead tells her to answer his question. Ignes states that Rai came all the way to werewolf territory to find one human, adding it's ridiculous. She begins laughing and states he's really remarkable, if he'd shown that much interest in her father, he wouldn't have had to go into Eternal Sleep like that. Rai tells her that Roctis gave up everything in order to protect her. Ignes gets angry asking if Rai is trying to say that her father betrayed him and the Nobles because of her. Ignes shouts if she asked him to sacrifice himself for her, that she never asked for such a thing and it was all his own decision, instead saying Rai is the one who's responsible for all of this, not her. She tells Rai that if he'd given the slightest bit of attention to her father, who followed and respected him for a long time, that if he'd given her father even a fraction of the attention he gives to those humans, her father wouldn't have made such a decision, rather for his sake, he would've abandoned her as well. Ignes tells Rai, it's all his fault for making her father to make such a decision. Ignes calls for Titan. The floor warps and bulges, as Ignes states this is a gift for Rai. A giant blue creature emerges from the ground. Ignes informs Rai a lot of werewolves went into creating him, and even though his power is too great to control, she's sure he'll be able to give Rai the gift of Eternal Sleep. The creature roars destroying the lab and the surrounding area.
Ignes is shocked at Titan's display of power, she realises this is good and starts complimenting him. She orders Titan to give Rai the gift of Death. Rai looks on as Titan launches an attack turning the ground into rubble. Rai shields himself from the attack and is surprised, when Titan launches an energy beam at him. Rai manages to block the beam, but as Titan increases the power of the beam, blood starts to drip from Rai's mouth. Ignes is surprised to see the blood, as Titan attack Rai from above. Rai summons his blood field and manages to destroy Titan's arm. Titan screams, and regenerates his arm instantaneously, and once again moves to attack Rai. Rai uses his power, to destroy both of Titan's arms, causing the monster to roar in pain. Rai attempts to push the creature back, however Titan continues to move forward attacking Rai with his head, while his arms regenerate. Rai uses a blood barrier to protect himself, only for Titan to tear the barrier apart, with his newly regenerated limbs. Rai is shocked at the creature's strength, as Titan fires an energy beam at an unprotected Rai, completely destroying the barrier. Ignes ridicules Rai, saying he used to be the most glorious of Nobles, but now looking at his pitiful state he must already have been weak before coming to the land of the Werewolves. Ignes asks why he would attempt something so reckless, just to save one human.
Ignes is shocked to see Rai with only one Blood Wing and is saddened to see him in such bad shape, and having spent a long time beholding and loving him, she doesn't want to see him in that state, so tells him to just die. Titan attacks Rai and Rai blocks the attack, Rai immobilises the creature by using Mind Control, before attacking him with a Blood Field. Titan is damaged and broken, after the attack, but his healing ability counters all the damage he sustained in the attack, almost instantly. Rai uses a much more powerful Blood Field, encasing the creature inside it. Ignes thinks it can't end like this, since she created Titan with the data she gathered from her experiments on Nobles, Humans and Werewolves, making him the most powerful creature in existence. Titan transforms, destroying the Blood Field and launches a powerful attack against Rai, which is felt by everyone in Werewolf Territory.
In a flashback, Maduke and Ignes stare at Titan, who is lying dormant in a giant experiment pod. Maduke introduces Titan, as the experiment they have put everything on the line for as not just any chimera, but a monster. He reveals that chimeras created by humans had inspired him to use members of his own race to create the strongest being in existence. Ignes is shocked by the nature of the research carried out by the werewolf clan and doubts that combining two bodies could yield something stable. Maduke explains that it took them a very long time, and it was possible due to the resilience of his kind. Maduke admits to using his kinsmen as experiment specimens and adds that they were able to keep up with humans in the field of physical modification since they could withstand extensive procedures. He corrects her stating that Titan was not a combination of two bodies; it is comprised of many werewolves. Ignes shudders at the thought of the lives sacrificed in the trials and wonders if Maduke did the work himself. Maduke tells her that although they created it, they failed to awaken it, and its regeneration ability is the only thing keeping it alive. He tells her that she will be the one to resurrect him. Ignes hesitates to commit, but Maduke accuses her of hiding her abilities since she has experimented on nobles, in addition to leading physical modification at the Union behind the scenes and working with Lagus Tradio, making her unparalleled. With a malevolent grin, Ignes notes that he knows a lot about her. Back in the present, Rai is unable to inflict any serious damage to Titan. Ignes tells him that she intends to release Titan in the human world, starting with where he lives and watch those dear to him die a dreadful death. This provokes Rai to unleash more power and attack Ignes. Titan tries to punch Rai from behind but is pushed back as Rai counterattacks. The monster takes flight and lets out several energy beams that alarm Rai and Ignes. After being placed in the range of attack, Ignes concludes that a rushed specimen can not be controlled and decides to leave before Titan mistakes her for an enemy. She attacks Rai with her soul weapon as a parting gift. Rai, who is blocking a concentrated beam gets stabbed and loses his concentration. His force field shatters and an explosion occurs as the energy beam strikes.

Relationships

  • Roctis Kravei: Ignes had been a source of constant worry for her father. However, she continued her crimes ininhibited. She is momentarily distraught when she losses her psychic connection with Roctis, signifying his death; shortly thereafter, she is overcome by the excitement of inheriting his soul weapon. Ignes denies the sacrifices he made as his decisions.
  • Rael Kertia: It is plausible that at some point during Ignes' stay in Lukedonia, Rael was infatuated by her. She teases him for following her around when he was younger and tells him that she can empathise with being a pure-blood who has to live under the shadow of the clan leader. She offers to share her power with him, and even after getting rebuffed, gives him one last chance to reconsider. Her feelings are insincere as she tries to kill him after a second and more vociferous rejection, and uses him as an experiment specimen later.
  • Cadis Etrama Di Raizel: Like all pure bloods, Ignes is instinctively intimidated by the Noblesse, more so due to her unforgivable transgressions. She blames Rai for compelling her father to take the extreme decisions that eventually lead to his death. She is shown to have a fascination for Rai's powers

  • 9th Elder: He was Ignes' research partner and shared her morbid interest in conducting experiments on live subjects.
  • Dr. Crombel: Unlike her father and the 9th Elder, Ignes treated Dr. Crombel amicably during his visit. He is aware of her grudge against the clan leaders and instigates her to participate in the Union's ongoing conflict with Lukedonia.
  • Frankenstein: Ignes is shown to be acquainted with Frankenstein and his master from the start as opposed to the current generation of pure-bloods.

Ignes regards humans as an inferior species and has sacrificed many for her experiments without the slightest remorse.

  • Maduke: Maduke was often seen by Ignes' side during her stay with the werewolves. He gave her a free hand and provided her with members from his clan for her experiments in order to exploit her knowledge for his nefarious plans

Powers & Abilities

Ignes was a powerful Noble where she experimented on herself to become a powerful modified Noble. She was originally supposed to become the 13th Elder but Roctis made sure she didn't get the job. According to Crombel she is far stronger than the current Clan Leaders. She has shown to be able to defeat Seira easily as well as Regis & Rael. After getting a Soul Weapon she becomes more powerful where she fights on par with Lunark who is the 5th Elder & a powerful werewolf Warrior on her own right.

Soul Weapon

Ignes vs Lunark3

The giant serpent manifested by the soul weapon.

After Roctis's death, as his sole heir, Ignes becomes the leader of her clan and gains the Soul Weapon of the Kravei Clan. It is a black whip irradiated with black aura energy with claw-like protrusions. It has a braided gold handle. Her skills include transforming the whip into a giant serpent (possibly based on Apophis or Jörmungandr).

Aura Manipulation

Aurawhip

Ignes creates a whip of energy by simply exhaling.

Due to being a Noble, and a modified one at that, Ignes has immense talent for aura manipulation. Like most aura users, she can focus her energy in her palm and release it with enormous force, enough to casually obliterate multiple skyscrapers. However she also has unique aura manipulation techniques such as:

  • Aura Whip: By simply breathing, she can create a whip of dark indigo aura energy that she can freely manipulate with her mind. The whip is capable of destroying skyscrapers and shredding apart reinforced steel. Ignes can make the whip disappear by inhaling. 
  • Aura Arrow: Ignes can create a large arrow shaped bolt of aura energy that she can fire at supersonic (possibly hypersonic) speeds, allowing her to destroy an area equivalent to a city block in a fraction of a second.

Physical Prowess

As a pure-blooded noble, Ignes owns great physical and spiritual powers. Those natural abilities are accompanied by physical enhancements that she needed to make up for her lack of a Soul Weapon. She is very talented fighter and proficient at using her aura very perfectly. She demonstrated unique techniques and unique fighting capability. She easily defeated Seira and nearly defeated Regis and Rael.

  • Superhuman Strength: Ignes' strength is demonstrated for the first time in Chapter 298. Just the impact of her jumping from the top of the skyscraper to the ground (a common feat for Nobles and modified humans), created a shock wave that violently shook the ground, shattered skyscraper windows and caused debris to fall, and made a crater in the ground. Ignes was also able to destroy multiple skyscrapers with a casual punch. She has demonstrated that her level of power is far beyond the current generation of Nobles Clan Leaders.
  • Enhanced Regeneration: In Ignis's fight with Frankenstein after he chopped of her right arm, she implies her regeneration has been upgraded. Unfortunately this was nullified by Frankenstein's Dark Spear's power.

Scientific Expertise

She is a highly capable researcher and is said to have mastered all of the 9th Elder's knowledge. She conducts scientific experiments with her mentor on physical modifications. She's also responsible for making the 8th Elder with the help of the 9th Elder and Anti-Clan Leader Weapons.
