Sorcerers (魔道師, Madoushi) are humanoid being with the ability to manipulate magic similarly to witches.[1]


Much like witches, their appearance is just like that of a human's.[2]

Among Witches, the view on sorcerers shows some level of reverence in their magic prowess, as observed when Eruka Frog's incantation on performing Magic Calculation pay respect to Rerené Descartes[3] and when Death himself assumes that witches themselves are familiar with extremely powerful sorcerer items such as the Book of Eibon.[4]

Non-Witches hold a far more skeptical view on sorcerers, indicated when Death the Kid considered Eibon to be just another "villainous scum" just from being introduced to a demon tool he created.[5]

  • Magic (魔法, Mahō): Although sorcerers do not practice magic like witches (utilized it through spells or willpower)[8], they're capable of nevertheless wielding it through currently unknown means.[1] With their methods, they can create demon tools and even artificial life (with souls even) in the form of demon tool soldiers.[9]
  • Longevity: Also much like their closely similar female counterparts, sorcerers can live far longer then humans, being capable of living up to centuries old as far as eight hundred years.[10]
