Aleister Crowley (アレイスター・クロウリー)Based on the late Aleister Crowley. He was once the greatest magician in modern magic history, where more than half of all modern magicians are affected by this man's established theories, and two-fifths of them are direct followers of his ways. Aleister stretched the boundaries of sorcery farther than the advances made in the last few millennia alone and written many top-class spell books like The Book of the Law. His death in 1947 shocked many but it was not the last the world had heard of him. In reality he faked his death to stop his obsess fanatics following him and secretly went to Japan where he meet a doctor who he would later called Heaven Canceler. Years later, Aleister, Heaven Canceler and several powerful individuals combined their resources and influences to create one of the most technological advance city on Earth at western Tokyo, Academy City. By this time, rumors of Aleister still being alive led some mages to discover the truth. At first they we happy to see that he was alive but were immediately shocked as that not only Aleister abandoned using magic but was more interested in the study and development of espers.
To this day, only a few magicians know Aleister is still alive who are mostly the leaders of powerful magical organizations and their trusted followers and those that do know him view him with skepticism, curiosity on what he's doing or outraged for abandoning magic and supporting science especially esper studies. Not making things any better is the fact Aleister was responsible for the creation of the truce between Science and Magic where neither side is allowed to interfere in each other affairs which has irked both sides. As the 13th Board of Director and General Director of Academy City, Aleister has the final say of the city affairs but usually leaves the city's welfare to the other members of the board. He resides within a tall, gray building called The Windowless building, known for not having any exterior windows where access to the building is a secret to a few. In there, Aleister's body which has now become younger lies inside a giant glass tube, supported by machines made by Heaven Canceler that extended his lifespan where he plots his mysterious plans.
