Mr. Blackwell is a character in Little Witch Academia. He is the minister of defense of the country and the chairman of the Appleton Academy.


He is an adult man with dark yellow hair and a mustache, green eyes that denote dark circles, and a pronounced chin. He wears a grayish-black tuxedo suit over a white shirt and a tie board.


Mr. Blackwell is an aggressive and ill-tempered man. His belligerent attitudes towards other nations as Minister of Defense are reflected in the bellicose rhetoric he uses about sports games against a foreign country, promising to crush their nation in politics as they will in soccer as well as indifferent to the prospect of said country being targeted by Noir Missile. Because of his violent disposition, he believes that aggression is the only, as well as best, way to settle disputes and sees pacifism as wrong, as shown through suggesting using the military to stop the riot despite Andrew's objection. Mr. Blackwell also loathes witches outright and instilled his antagonism into his son.

After Akko and Diana saved the world, he was last seen applaud to them as with the rest of parliament with a clear shame on his face. It's unknown his disposition and to a greater extent, improve afterward as much as Paul Hanbridge did.
