Eight (エイト) is one of the Ten Sages in the Mage's Guild. A haughty and competitive woman, she considers Nine to be her rival. Although frequently seen with Seven, the two did not get along.

Eight first appeared in BlazBlue: Phase Shift 2.

Appearance

A fair-skinned woman with long turquoise hair and bright red eyes. Eight wears a pair of gold earrings with red jewels in the center as well as a large, ornate necklace with many purple and pink jewels adorning it. She wears bright red lipstick and has purple eyebrows.

Eight wears a backless, tightly fitting purple dress that has a deep cut down its middle, showing her cleavage. This dress has two slits on her upper thighs, showing the outline of her black tights which have hip windows. On both her arms are purple, finger-less evening gloves, and she has high heels with large pumps. Eight drapes a large purple cape over her body which reaches down to the ground, and by its collar and fastener are tufts of large white fur. Like the other Ten Sages, Eight wears a wide-brimmed purple hat with the character (八) for her position marked on it.

Personality

Eight is a loud and bossy figure in the Ten Sages, making her presence known wherever she goes. Her usual attitude includes taunting and mocking everyone around her, regardless of who they are. If she is not shown the proper respect she believes she is entitled to as one of the Sages, then Eight will remind those who address her of her position. Her voice is said to be both charming and provocative.[2]

Despite her common haughty attitude, there is a passion within Eight that nothing can quell - the end of the Dark War. There is nothing more that she wants than to complete the Nox Nyctores - Gigant: Take-Mikazuchi in order to end the war, and her passion on the subject can lead her to talk quicker than most can follow. She is not one to hide her excitement and can forget herself as she delights in her own glee.

She worked together with Seven, although Eight was not fond of her fellow Sage, seemingly only working with him to complete Take-Mikazuchi; when out of his earshot, she would sometimes vocally express her hatred for him.[3] Like Seven, Eight was not above using someone without their consent for her own accord, yet was one of many who feared Nine's wrath.

Discussion on her figure is taboo, and doing so is enough to make her eyes twitch in anger.

Powers and Techniques

Unusually young for a member of the Ten Sages, Eight is well known for her excellence in protective sorcery, but is also versed in alchemy and magic to exceptional levels. Her understanding of the machinations of Take-Mikazuchi lead to the first victory that humanity had against the Black Beast, and she was capable of teleportation, sorcery that is notoriously difficult.[4]
