Willard H. Wright's History

Willard H. Wright (???????H????? Wirādo H. Raito) is a former first-class archbishop and Chief Inquisitor of the SSVD, enforcing Van Dine's Commandments. He first appears in Requiem of the Golden Witch.

Profile: A member of the "SSVD", the 8th District Repentance Enforcement Agency of the Great Court of Heaven. An Inquisitor of Heresy and a first-class archbishop. He is commonly known as "Wright of the Twenty Wedges" or "Wizard-hunting Wright".

He was an ace Inquisitor of Heresy in his youth, feared for being both ruthless and merciless in his work.

However, at some point, there was a change in his work attitude, and his previous flashy escapades became a thing of the past. His current style is often fickle, alternating between laziness and obsessive bursts of energy regarding mere trifles. By now, everyone has given up trying to understand him.

He has already filed his resignation and had it accepted. Only a few days remain before he'll lose the name of Wright.

Role in the Story

Requiem of the Golden Witch

Will makes his first proper appearance, resolving a case taken and misunderstood by his old teammates of the SSVD. He saves the servant who was unfairly accused and then leaves immediately.

Will is then called by Bernkastel and goes to Rokkenjima to attend Beatrice's funeral. This Rokkenjima is a special world with many differences; namely, Battler does not attend the conference and Lion Ushiromiya exists.

He is forced to accept the role of detective when Bern asks him to solve Beatrice's murder with Lion as his sidekick. The two start questioning the adults about the figure of Beatrice, later asking Kinzo himself about his version. They then interview the cousins, and Will gets closer and closer to Lion as the two start to know each other better.

Will then exposes his theory about the witch's death, giving his support to Lion when it is revealed that they are Beatrice II's child and not Natsuhi's. After that, he listens to Yasu's confession and frees Clair's soul to rest in peace after solving her riddles. With the end of the funeral, Will says goodbye to Lion and heads back home to his cat Diana.

In the Tea Party, he arrives just in the nick of time to save Lion from Bernkastel's revenge, who shows them the truth of Rokkenjima. Lion escapes after Will tells them that they are the last hope for Beatrice to have a happy ending. While fighting off Bern's army of cats, he loses an arm in the process and heads out with Lion to try and find a happy Kakera despite his injury.

It is suggested by the ??? scene that they are both killed by Bernkastel.

Twilight of the Golden Witch

It is revealed that he and Lion were saved by Lambdadelta and have become her pieces. They were brought with Lambda to the after-party that Battler held.

When the goats attack Rokkenjima, he and Dlanor fight against those who believe that the Rokkenjima Incident was caused by magic. After Rokkenjima is eaten by the goats, Will goes the Golden Land with the others and fights against more goats, dying when the Golden Land is destroyed. He is then revived alongside everyone else by ANGE-Beatrice's magic.

In the Magic Ending, it's stated in a letter Erika received that Will started taking badminton lessons under Lion. He reappears with the other characters in the ???.
