Lady Bernkastel's History

Bernkastel is an extremely powerful witch that has lived a thousand years. She first appears in Legend of the Golden Witch to become a spectator for Beatrice's game.

Before becoming a witch, Bernkastel suffered through a logic error in a game board created long ago by an unnamed Game Master. After struggling for a long time, Bern escaped her Logic Error and earned the title of "Witch of Miracles".

In Twilight of the Golden Witch, Lambdadelta suggests that Bernkastel was originally a cat of Featherine Augustus Aurora, who was turned into a witch. Legend has it that Bernkastel wandered the sea of Fragments endlessly, searching for any Fragment that can revive her master from the pits of death called boredom, if even for a moment. Eventually, the cat revived her master.

Bernkastel initially appears emotionless and gets bored easily. She has forgotten the concept of pain and fear after centuries of being superior over others.

Deep down, Bern is sadistic and willing to kill or sacrifice anything or anyone for her own amusement. She treats her piece Erika like garbage when the latter fails to achieve any worthwhile results. She is just as, if not even more, playfully cruel than Lambdadelta, who shows a great fondness towards her and outright states that she loves her several times.

She has a tendency to hold grudges and that even a century won't make her forget the humiliation she suffered. As a result of this, she then creates a game where there won't be a happy ending, in the case when she lost a game to Beatrice.
