Sucy is a tall, thin girl who bears an image of a stereotypical witch. She has pale grayish-mauve skin, puce hair, and red eyes with white pupils.

Because of Sucy's pastel mauve tone, seeming lack of arms (her arms are only visible when she moves them), and a uniform which is longer than usual, that is reaching to the ground, she gives off an eerie aura and a ghostly appearance.

As shown in "[[Sleeping Sucy]]" and other separate occasions, it has been suggested that even with her own kind, Sucy was considered an eccentric freak; she had a clear preference on something which scared or at least disturbed other girls, such as the idea of getting eaten, foul-smelling fumes of potions or poisons, performing experiments with potions and poisons on Akko, and pulling scary pranks that she found amusing, less so for her victims. Hannah and Barbara also refer to her as "Creepy Sucy" when they were picking on Sucy, Akko and Lotte. However, contrary to their belief, Sucy is neither a complete freak nor a heartless anti-social girl, as she does care a lot for her friends in spite of having no qualms about using them as test subjects in her [[potion]] experiments, whether or not they give consent to it. In addition to this, her other hobbies are shown to include yoga and meditation. It is also hinted that the only strong emotional connection she had was with Akko, which explains why the memory of their first meeting is her most cherished one.

She has advanced knowledge of alchemy and is very skilled in creating [[Potion|potions]]. She has an uncanny interest for mushrooms, and uses them in most of her recipes, usually deadly or poisonous ones. For a young witch, she has vast knowledge of potions and poisons (including their effects), and is able to prepare poisonous potions that not only can kill its victims, but also is able to reduce said victims' bodies into caustic, liquid body mass. Some of her potions are even capable of causing explosions. She is also able to prepare fertilizer potions that accelerate the growth of vegetation, a potion that [[Puppet Magic|gives life to objects]] and a special [[Mandrake]] potion that temporarily increases magical power.

Sleeping Sucy

Sucy Manbavaran (スーシィ・マンババラン Sūshī Manbabaran?) is one of the main protagonists of Little Witch Academia. She is a young witch from Southeast Asia.[2]

AppearanceEdit

Sucy Design

Sucy is a tall, thin girl who bears an image of a stereotypical witch. She has pale, grayish skin, mauve hair, and red eyes with white pupils. She comes off as laid-back, with droopy, half-lidded eyes that make her look indifferent or lethargic half of the time. Her left eye is covered by a large fringe of hair. Because of Sucy's pastel mauve tone, seeming lack of arms (her arms are only visible when she moves them), and a uniform which is longer than usual, that is reaching to the ground, she gives off an eerie aura and a ghostly appearance.

For pajamas, Sucy wears a white and red cap, paired a white long-sleeved collared tunic that reaches past her feet. She is occasionally depicted without arms in this outfit, although her arms are usually exposed whenever she's wearing this attire.

The early promotional poster of the original short film gives Sucy olive-green hair instead of puce, blue eyes, and a slightly darker skin tone.

PersonalityEdit

When introduced in the short films, Sucy is portrayed as an aloof, calm, sarcastic and somewhat sadistic person. She also surprisingly remains indifferent in various situations and things that drive the other girls crazy, which shows that she is calmer than her roommates. She continues to display these characteristics in the anime, although she appears to be somewhat more apathetic.

As shown in "Sleeping Sucy" and other separate occasions, it has been suggested that even with her own kind, Sucy was considered an eccentric freak; she had a clear preference on something which scared or at least disturbed other girls, such as the idea of getting eaten, foul-smelling fumes of potions or poisons, performing experiments with potions and poisons on Akko, and pulling scary pranks that she found amusing, less so for her victims. Hannah and Barbara also refer to her as "Creepy Sucy" when they were picking on Sucy, Akko and Lotte. However, contrary to their belief, Sucy is neither a complete freak nor a heartless anti-social girl, as she does care a lot for her friends in spite of having no qualms about using them as test subjects in her potion experiments, whether or not they give consent to it. In addition to this, her other hobbies are shown to include yoga and meditation. It is also hinted that the only strong emotional connection she had was with Akko, which explains why the memory of their first meeting is her most cherished one. This was later confirmed in "Yesterday", where she went to the bridge when they first met when Akko was missing.

Abilities and EquipmentEdit

She has advanced knowledge of alchemy and is very skilled in creating potions. She has an uncanny interest for mushrooms, and uses them in most of her recipes, usually deadly or poisonous ones. For a young witch, she has vast knowledge of potions and poisons (including their effects), and is able to prepare poisonous potions that not only can kill its victims, but also is able to reduce said victims' bodies into caustic, liquid body mass. Some of her potions are even capable of causing explosions. She is also able to prepare fertilizer potions that accelerate the growth of vegetation, a potion that gives life to objects and a special Mandrake potion that temporarily increases magical power. She does all of this despite the fact that such potions are not allowed to be made at Luna Nova.

Notable potions she has in her disposal are:

  • Festering Potion
  • Poison Gas Potion
  • Experimental Poison Gas Bomb
  • Puppet Magic Potion
  • Nutrient Potion
  • Frog Leg Potion
  • Memory Alteration Potion
  • Explosive Powder
  • Pyro Booster Potion
  • Ultra Super Energy Drink Potion
  • Weapon-Wand Fusion Powder
  • Cactus Nutrients

In addition of her skills in potion brewing, Sucy is skilled in other forms of magical practices including broom flying, metamorphosis, Illusory, object control, and fusion magic. Like everyone in the Manbavaran family, she has developed immunity to poisons and toxins.
