Samantha Badcock (サマンサ・バドコック Samansa Badokokku?) is a character in Little Witch Academia. She's the numerology teacher and assistant principal of Luna Nova Academy.


Badcock is a short, old woman with turquoise hair tipped sideways and a pair of rectangular lenses. She is wearing the regular Luna Nova faculty uniform on which she wears a green cloak.


Badcock is a diminutive and distracted person. She seems to be rather forgetful, forgetting an essential part of her own lesson. She's also a penny-pincher, refusing to buy any type of food other than potatoes, much to Akko's chagrin. Like Lotte, she is a fan of the Night Fall novels, but she appears to keep it secret.

Being in charge of Luna Nova's finances, she tends to be a fussy person who seems to worry about economic recurses and strictly manages things such as student equipment.
