An Icon (偶像, Gūzō) is an artificial Sorcerer created from the Book of Eibon.[1] The Icons are personifications of the chapters within the book, with each chapter representing one of the seven deadly sins, and are controlled by the Table of Contents.[1]


The Icons

Six out of the Seven Noahs in which includes left to right: Lust, Envy, Sloth, Gluttony, Pride, and Wrath

While each individual bears their own defining characteristics based on the sin they reflect, they also demonstrate numerous similarities. All seven have a noticeably dark complexion and medium-length silky black hair, and all seem to wear two necklaces of different lengths with the longer one having a red crystal-like adornment and the shorter appearing to be similar to that of a dog tag. In addition, all seven share a similar soul wavelength.[2]

By utilizing the sin an icon personifies, The Table of Contents can assign each Noah to complete a certain task. The most prevalent example of this is how the Table of Contents used the icon of greed's avarice to obtain the Demon tool, Brew,[1] then used of the icon of wrath and his anger in an attempt to defeat and collect the Kishin.[1]
