Monotone Princess arc

Enacting their plan to destroy the world, Grimoire begins to gather a mass of humans while Ponera spins her clan's special cocoon to take Human souls to create the Gigants. During this time, as they gathered human souls, they also allied with the likes of Killbell and Nars Garnier on false promises of making them reborn to their liking and earned the attention of Death Weapon Meister Academy.[1]

During their investigation, Maka's team encounters Killbell, whom is killed by the team leader and her weapon partner in battle and they uncover him revealing a possibility of the capable of turning a Human's soul into a Kishin Egg without consumption.[1]

Nars is later encountered by Death the Kid and the Thompson Sisters during the DWMA's investigation into the Paraponera Clan as they attempt to uncover their identity and goal. After Nal's death, a stray Werwolf by the name of Alone then takes the clan's coccon for himself. Becoming a person of interest in the DWMA, the Paraponera Clan also learns of Alone's taking of the cocoon. Ponera and Grimoire both plan to retrieve it themselves.[1]

Ponera and Grimoire close in to retrieve their cocoon, though Death Weapon Meister Academy beat them to finding Alone's residence and slays the Werewolf before claiming one of the clan's cocoon. Ponera and Grimoire oversee Alone's defeat, the Witch entrusting the Sorcerer to retrieve the cocoon himself before the both of them teleport away from the scene.[1]

The Paraponera Clan later appear under Patchwork Labs to retrieve the clan's cocoon in DWMA's custody lead by Grimoire. During their attack, their identity and leader is surprisingly revealed by Dr. Medusa. Successful in retrieving the cocoon, Grimoire sends a Gigant to attack Black☆Star and Tsubaki Nakatsukasa though the creature is defeated.[1]

As Death Weapon Meister Academy searches the underground caverns, Kid's team uncovers both a developing Gigant and Grimoire himself, who reveals his true intent on ruling the world as a "Super Sorcerer" by using Ponera's special ability to spin her clan's cocoon and his wavelength control to absorb the kishin power of multiple Gigant's souls and power to attain a higher power level then even a death god. However, he is defeated and disappears, though is somehow alive.[1]


Paraponera Clan's Cocoon

Soul Cocoon

Paraponera Clan's Cocoon

A specialty of the clan, the Paraponera Clan is capable of spinning a special cocoon (繭, Mayu) from Magic that can extract the soul from a Human. The cocoon can then turn a Human soul into a Kishin Egg (a capability said to be rare by Franken Stein and thought to be nearly impossible for those in Death Weapon Meister Academy). By doing so, this can create a Gigant, ant-like Kishin creatures possessing Kishin Power.[1]

Fighting Force

A formidable clan, the Paraponera Clan are capable of military-like tactics and strategy, having been able to elude and evade Death Weapon Meister Academy as well as have their identity remain a mystery.[1]

  • Paramyles: The main combatants of the Paraponera Clan and are the results of humans whose souls have been absorbed into the clan's cocoon and are controlled by the likes of Grimoire and/or Ponera via a form of Manipulation Magic.[1]
  • Gigant: Ant-like Kishin creatures that are the final result of the clan's cocoons taking in a Human soul. These beings are considered Kishin and as such, possess Kishin Power. Although strong, they are not nearly as as Kishin Asura.[1]
