Esdeath (エスデス)Age: Early 20s
Height: 170 cm (5'7")
Blood type: O
Faction: The Empire, Jaegers (Leader)
Teigu: Demon's Extract
Hobby: hunting high-class danger beasts
Famous quote: Panicking leads to an early grave.
Esdeath is a high-ranking general of the Empire, and leader of the Jaegers. She enjoys torturing her enemies slowly, seen when she used her Teigu to put large blocks of ice in a cauldron so that the people inside would die slower and suffer more. Despite her sadistic actions, she is actually shown to have a compassionate heart when it comes to the lives of her men and others close to her.
Her name in japanese, Esudesu, is a pun meaning "I am S" to show how sadistic she is.
