Friagne (フリアグネ Furiagune ) is a powerful Crimson Lord whose hobby is collecting Treasure Tools. His true name is "Hunter" (狩人 Kariudo ), which is derived from his interest. He has killed many Flame Haze, garnering the nickname, "Flame Haze Killer" (フレイムヘイズ殺し Fureimu Heizu-goroshi ). He has dwelled in Misaki City for some time, gathering enough Power of Existence for an Unrestricted Spell until his defeat.
Friagne is a man with blue hair, blue pupils and a pale complexion. He wears a white coat with a blue necktie and white pants while a long robe of untarnishable white floats around him; this length of cloth (in fact an unnamed Treasure Tool) helps him to fly and can also deflect incoming attacks. In the anime, he is 185cm tall.
In battle, he shows a calm and confident attitude, usually backed up by his powerful Treasure Tools but can become unstable when he is at a disadvantage. Unlike most Denizens, he doesn't associate with organizations like Bal Masqué.
Friagne is extremely cunning, evident from the intricacies in his plan to activate City Devourer. He was using Dance Party to improve upon Asiz's methods by requiring less Torches. He had chosen Yoda Department Store as his hideout and the battlefield because it was the highest point in the city and would cause the minimum amount of damage to his Torches should he use Trigger Happy to destroy Shana's vessel, but also because the building was in the middle of the city, and thus all the Torches in the city would feel the ringing of Dance Party. Friagne told Yūji Sakai about Trigger Happy so that he would tell Shana and draw attention away from Dance Party, and he also used Dance Party in battle against Shana by exploding his Rinne as well to camouflage its affect on Torches.
He came to Misaki City to perform a notorious Unrestricted Spell called City Devourer in order to gain enough Power of Existence to make Marianne a fully independent being, instead of a Rinne which needs to depend on its master just to exist. He has a vast collection of Treasure Tools, pictured as a mountain of treasure in Reshuffle, of most of which are useless. This is also the reason for him having the largest collection of Treasure Tools: most are not the ones highly sought for use in battle.
In the novel, movie, and third volume of the manga, he was incinerated by the wrath of Alastor, who materialized when the enraged Friagne shot Shana with the Trigger Happy which couldn't destroy her body like it did with many other Flame Haze. On the other hand, the anime describes that his finger was cut off by Shana and thus unable to use the Trigger Happy. He was then killed by Shana together with Marianne.
He has a very intimate relationship with his favorite doll, Marianne, which fuels his desire to make her an independent being.
Powers and AbilitiesEditBy himself, Friagne has not shown any unique abilities of his own, particularly because of his dependence in the Treasure Tools he use. Nonetheless, he is an expert in using multiple Treasure Tools in one battle, as he demonstrated in his battle against Shana.
He is also noted to use Rinne, a majority in the form of dolls in varying shapes and sizes, in abundance to attack foes. These dolls are usually led by Marianne, who usually hides her true form inside minor Rinne to protect herself.
