|“||I've got a feeling that someday us and the humans will be able to understand each other!
Licht 「リヒト Rihito」 is the leader of the Elf Tribe and one of its ten Apostles of Sephirah. He was married to Tetia, a human woman and the sister of Lemiel Silvamillion Clover, the first Magic Emperor.
Licht is a tall, slender-framed elf with white skin and somewhat effeminate facial features and gold eyes. His white hair was pulled back into a single braid.
Licht is a kind and compassionate elf who sought peace between elves and humans, and shows a strong sense of understanding towards other people, both to elves and humans, and a strong sense of loyalty and love towards those he considers his friends. Despite the obvious evidence of Lemiel betraying and killing the elves, due to the Light Magic used in the attack, Licht never completely loses faith that his friend did nothing wrong and was innocent.
Since his resurrection, Licht has shown little emotion and does not say much. Seeing two elves defeated causes him to remember the Massacre of the Elf Tribe and incites him to fight Asta and Yuno.
Years later, Licht receives a four-leaf clover grimoire and saves a human woman from a magical tornado. Licht befriends Lemiel Silvamillion Clover, Tetia's brother, who also believes that elves and humans will live in peace. Licht conceives twins with Tetia and hopes that they will unite the two peoples.
Immediately following the wedding of Licht and Tetia, a group of human royals attacks the elves and steals their magic for themselves. Licht is the only survivor since Zagred orchestrated the massacre in order to corrupt Licht's grimoire and take his body. Licht recovers his mind when he sees that Lemiel was not involved. However, it is too late to stop the corruption of his body so Licht uses the magic stones to transform himself into a demon, which prevents Zagred from possessing his body. Lemiel is forced to kill Licht to stop his rampage, and Licht's skeleton is made into a memorial on the outskirts of Hage village. Secre Swallowtail seals Lemiel into a stone statue atop the skull.
Five centuries later, Patolli is reincarnated into the body of William Vangeance and creates the Eye of the Midnight Sun to finish reincarnating the other elves, which he believes to be Licht's plan. Patolli has Sally create an artificial body for Licht's soul, and the body is suspended in a giant sphere of mana within the Gravito Rock Zone's floating dungeon.
When the Royal Knights attack the dungeon, one of the teams reaches the central chamber where the body is. At the same time, Patolli succeeds in collecting all of the magic stones and placing them in the sephirot. Light pours from the stone monument, and Licht and the other elves are reincarnated. Licht watches in silence as Klaus Lunettes and Hamon Caseus fight and defeat Mimosa Vermillion. Rhya brings Asta before Licht, but the leader does not react to a human using his grimoire and swords.
Seeing Klaus and Hamon defeated reminds Licht of the massacre, so he catches his brethren, carries them to the ground, and then draws the Demon-Destroyer Sword from the floor. Asta and Yuno ready themselves for a fight, and Asta draws the Demon-Dweller Sword. Suddenly Licht appears in front of Asta and takes the sword. He fills it with his magic and releases a series of flying slashes, forcing the boys to retreat. Yuno tries a counterattack, but the Demon-Dweller Sword absorbs the Spirit Storm and releases it back at Yuno. When Yuno closes the distance and uses Mana Zone to attack Licht from behind, the elf once again absorbs the spell. However, before Licht can release the spell, Asta and Yuno charge at him.
Licht deflects their attack with his other sword and lets it go. He then points the Demon-Dweller Sword at the boys and unleashes a magical blast, forcing them and Mimosa down and out of the dungeon. Rhya questions why Licht sent away his grimoire and swords, to which Licht replies that the grimoire is no longer his. Ado then appears and brings the other elves in the dungeon into the central room, and the dungeon is steered toward the Clover Kingdom and their revived brethren.
After reaching Clover Castle, the ten Apostles of Sephirah gather atop the dungeon and summon the Shadow Palace. Licht and other elves then fly into the gate. Licht waits in the uppermost chamber, guarding the exit. When Zagred reaches the room, the two fight and the devil binds Licht's sword. Charla saves Licht by diverting Zagred's Iron Spear, and Yami Sukehiro cuts through the bindings. During the ensuing fight, Licht absorbs one of Yami's slashes and releases it back, severing the devil's tail. Zagred then summons a creature from the underworld. Licht is unable to stop the creature as it pours out of the room and down into the other chambers.
Licht uses his magic to float above the creature. He is surprised when Lemiel later appears in the room and burns a path through. Lemiel and Secre fly over to Licht, and Secre unseals Licht's soul, fully awakening him. Licht thanks Lemiel for stopping him centuries ago, and then tells Patolli that, although the young elf committed unforgivable crimes, he tried his best to find justice and that they can fight the devil together. Zagred attacks the group, but Licht and Lemiel blast the creature back with Origin Flash Barrage and Lamp of Avior Gloria. The pair then attack the devil directly, flying around him and throwing swords of light. They are too fast for Zagred, and Lemiel drives a sword through the devil's torso. However, Zagred summons a demonic trident that shatters the sword and severs Lemiel's left arm. Before the devil can kill Lemiel, Asta blocks the weapon with his Anti Magic Weapon, which shocks Licht. Zagred forces Asta back and attacks with a Storm of Swords, which overwhelms the boy until Licht, Lemiel, Yuno, and Patolli come to his defense.
Licht then raises his sword aloft, absorbs the magic of the elves within the Shadow Palace, and unleashes the collected power in a singular attack, which destroys Zagred, its portal to the underworld, and a large section of the chamber. However, the devil's heart survives and regenerates the rest of the body. Licht watches as Asta tries to control more Anti Magic, and when Yuno creates Spirit of Zephyr, Licht is impressed at the rate of Yuno's growth since their fight.
After being injured by Asta's Black Divider, Zagred summons more monsters and threatens to destroy the Shadow Palace, so Licht and Lemiel concentrate their power to defending the others while Asta and Yuno focus on fighting the devil.
Licht stares in shock as Zagred is slain and crumbles away. However, the devil's magic remains and continues destroying the Shadow Palace. Before the others can reach the topmost chamber, Lemiel's magic runs out, but Valtos teleports the groups to safety and Yami's group cuts a path up. After the elves and humans successfully escape the Shadow Palace, Licht and William Vangeance combine their magic to connect the elves to a giant tree through which Asta sends Anti Magic, negating the Reincarnation Magic. Licht bids farewell to Rhya, Fana, and Vetto since their second reincarnations into soulless bodies allow them to remain alive. He also bids farewell to Lemiel, thanks Yuno for allowing him to fight alongside his son, and bequeaths his grimoire to Asta. His spirit then passes on with the other elves.
- Union Magic: Licht combines his Sword Magic with others' magic to create more powerful spells.
- Forbidden Magic: Licht uses this form of magic to cast spells that draw power from the underworld. Due to this magic, Licht's own magic is tainted by the other world, which enables it to counter Zagred's magic.
- Master Swordsman: Licht is a powerful master swordsman, as shown when he overpowers both Asta and Yuno with his swordsmanship. He is also capable of countering Zagred's attacks with ease.
- Immense Speed: Licht is extremely fast, as shown when he outpaces Asta's Ki-sensing. His speed is shown to be on par with Lemiel Silvamillion Clover, a Light Magic user.
- Immense Magic Power: As an elf and the leader of his race, Licht possesses an immense amount of magic power. By concentrating extremely large amounts of mana, Licht is able to float and levitate himself and other people. After being fully awakened, Licht's power is overwhelmingly vast but not oppressive for his allies.
- Grimoire: Licht possessed a four-leaf clover grimoire that contained various sword-based magic spells. Licht's despair over the Massacre of the Elf Tribe turned his grimoire into a five-leaf clover one, and a devil later inhabits the book.
- Swords: Three of Licht's swords later became the Demon-Slayer Sword, Demon-Dweller Sword, and Demon-Destroyer Sword. During his fight with Asta and Yuno, Licht reclaims the Demon-Dweller Sword and displays greater control over the sword's magic absorption and release property.
After helping save Tetia from a magical tornado, Licht became fast friends with her and her brother. Licht and Tetia fell in love and conceived twins, sharing the hope that they would unite the elves and the humans. They eventually married, but the wedding was ambushed and the elves were massacred. His overwhelming grief over losing his wife and friends corrupted his grimoire, creating a five-leaf clover. Unbeknownst to Licht, however, Tetia and one of their children survived.
Lemiel Silvamillion Clover
Lemiel Silvamillion Clover is Licht's best friend and brother-in-law. They both have the same dream of humans and elves coexisting.
Zagred is an archenemy of Licht. In the devil's attempts to steal Licht's body, it attempted to fill Licht with despair by setting up the annihilation of his people on the day of his wedding to Tetia and framed Lemiel for it. When Licht figured out the devil's plan and realized Lemiel's innocence, he manages to resist the devil's attempts to possess him. This defiance was so strong that Licht preferred the alternative into becoming a demon that could have destroyed Lemiel's home (although he had faith that Lemiel could stop him) than have the devil take his body. Five centuries later, when Licht was revived incompletely, he continued to stand in his enemy's way, despite his lack of emotions. When he was fully revived, Licht expressed his very intentions to put an end to the devil's plan once and for all. He expressed joy and gratefulness towards Asta and his friends when they managed to vanquish his sworn enemy.
