Who is Roswaal in Re:Zero?
Roswaal L. Mathers is the lead court magician of the Kingdom of Lugnica. He has the ability to manipulate super-grade magic at his will and has the combat power of a war weapon. He is free-spirited, and it is hard to tell what he is thinking. Also, his way of talking is unique and he has a habit of stretching the last part of the sentence. He is described by those around him as an eccentric with a royalty. Roswaal wears the make-up of a clown, which he says it is a costume for war. He is helping Emilia to become the king.
The strength of Roswaal in Re:Zero
Roswaal has magical powers and is by far the most powerful being in Re:Zero. Because of this, Roswaal has Divine Protection of Sorcery. The protection gives Roswaal an aptitude for the six attributes of mana and the amount of mana Roswaal has is nearly inexhaustible. However, while Roswaal is the strongest when it comes to offensive magic, he is unable to use recovery magic.
In addition to magic, he can also do martial arts. His opponents are wary of magic and challenged him to hand combat, but are overwhelmed by Roswaal's tremendous physical powers.
Roswaal's Past in Re:Zero
The name Roswaal has been passed down from generation to generation.
So the spirit of Roswaal is the same as it was 400 years ago, only the physical body has changed. Four hundred years ago, Roswaal was taught magic by Echidna and was an apprentice of Echidna.
Why does Roswaal have the Gospel?
But the Gospel that Roswaal has is not the same as the Gospel that the Echidna has. Roswaal has a gospel that Echidna made based on her Book of Wisdom. She copied the Book of Wisdom, a book of predictions about the future, to create Roswaal’s Gospel. For more on the Gospels, see the following article.
[Re:Zero] What is the Gospel? Why do Roswaal and Beatrice have the Gospel?
A Gospel is a book in which the future is written. To be more precise, the Gospels are imitations of the Book of Wisdom. The Book of Wisdom is the book written by the witch Echidna, the Witch of Greed. It describes the future.
However, he doesn’t know the details of how Subaru is starting over. He didn’t want to touch it until he knows the secret. So what does the Gospel of Roswaal tell? If he does things the way the gospels tell him to do,
Roswaal can get to the future he is aiming for.
