Just because somebody's a devil doesn't necessarily mean they're a bad guy!!!

— To Liebe in Devil

Richita 「リチタ」[1] was the mother of Asta[2] and the adoptive mother of Liebe. She died protecting Liebe from Lucifero.[3]

Appearance[]

Richita was a slim woman with green eyes and medium-length, ash blonde hair with a single strand protruding upwards from the center of her head. Her son Asta resembles her.

Richita wore a white shirt with sleeves that reached just past her elbows. Over this she wore an open, dark-colored vest and two belts. One belt held her grimoire pouch on her left side, while the other held a smaller pouch on her right hip. She also wore dark-colored pants that stopped at midcalf and a pair of light-colored shoes.

Personality[]

Richita was a compassionate and straightforward woman. She said what was on her mind, and did not hesitate to help a child in need, despite the fact that said child was a devil.[3]

She felt regret for having to abandon her son Asta at Hage Village.[4][5]

Biography[]

Richita was forced to live on the outskirts of a village due to her strange body that drained magic and lifeforce from others.[3] After giving birth to Asta, she feared that she would drain his lifeforce as well,[5] so she regretfully abandoned him in a basket on the doorstep of Hage's church.[3]

Richita and Liebe life together

Richita and Liebe's life together

One day, she found Licht's five-leaf clover grimoire and, a few days later, happened to find a devil lying exhausted and injured in the woods. She brought the devil back to her house and took care of him, adopting him as her son and naming him Liebe. The pair lived a carefree and fun-filled life together, until Lucifero discovered that there was a devil in the living world and attempted to take over Liebe's body. Refusing to let another child go, Richita grabbed onto Liebe and absorbed Lucifero's magic power. Lucifero took control of Liebe's left arm and plunged it through her chest; however, she managed to force Lucifero out of Liebe's body. As she died, she put Liebe into the five-leaf clover grimoire so he could grow up safe from Lucifero.[3]

Magic[]

  • Unnamed Magic: Richita used this magic to store mana-less objects and creatures inside of other objects, allowing her to carry large amounts of stuff without having to worry about weight, size, or shape. She typically used little bottles.[6]

Abilities[]

  • Magic Power and Lifeforce Absorption: Richita's body passively absorbed the magic power and lifeforce from other people and creatures near her but devils seem to be immune to it.[7]

Equipment[]

  • Grimoire: Richita possessed a grimoire that contained various spells.[6]

Relationships[]

Liebe[]

When she first found Liebe, she perceived him as an injured child, rather than a devil. After she rescued him, she adopted him and raised him as her son. Her love and kindness changes how he views himself and the world.[8] Thus, when Lucifero killed her, Liebe was overcome with grief, which fueled his intense hatred for devils.[9][10]

Asta[]

Richita was forced to give up her son, Asta, out of fear that she would drain his lifeforce. She always regretted this decision but never stopped loving him.[5]
