Golden Dawn 「金色の夜明け Konjiki no Yoake」 is one of the nine squads of the Clover Kingdom's Magic Knights. They are considered the strongest of the nine squads.[2]


The squad is currently regarded as the best among the nine squads of the order of the Magic Knights.[2] According to the stars they have collected given by the Magic Emperor for their excellent performance from completing missions, the Golden Dawn sits at the top of the chart with 125 stars,[1] up from 75 stars.[3]

The squad's uniforms are similar in design to the clothes worn by Lemiel Silvamillion Clover, the first Magic Emperor.[4]


Golden Dawn is led by a captain with authority over the members of the squad. Yuno is the only peasant member, and Mimosa is the only royal member. The rest of the members are from various noble families.[2]

Almost all of the squad's members are vessels for elf spirits,[5] with Mimosa as the only known exception.[6] After being freed from possession, the squad members retain some of the elves' magic.[7]

Later after the invasion and attack by Zenon and his two subordinates of the Spade Kingdom,roughly half of the members of the Squad were killed and the rest narrowly avoided death and were left in a near death state by their attackers and only survived thanks to the emergency healing spell of their captain,who was also captured and abducted by Zenon.

Base of Operations

Golden Dawn headquarters.

The Golden Dawn's headquarters is a palace-like structure atop a hill in an unknown region of the Clover Kingdom.[8][9] The base is attacked by Spade Kingdom mages and sustains extensive damage during the battle.[10]


  • The name of the squad is most likely a reference to the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, an organization dedicated to the study of the occult and paranormal, in addition to their names being roughly the same, both have a leader (two chiefs even in case of the Hermetic Order) that founded the Golden Dawn who coincidentally all carry the name William. Thus it is a safe assumption William Vangeance was also based on these two men.
