"Here they come."
—Ose when seeing Chiara and the Flame Haze.

Ose (オセ Ose?) is one of the Crimson Lords serving Bal Masqué. His true name is "Shifting Veil" (翻移の面紗 Hon'i no Mensa?).


Ose takes form of a large leopard with a human-like mask as his face. In the anime, his fur is dark blue at the top and purple at the bottom, with the human mask lodged inside his opened mouth. He has light blue spots and red eyes and his human mask glows like neon.

Ose lead a surprise assault on the Flame Haze, but more than 7 parts of his troops were obliterated when Seireiden fell suddenly. He was intended to be punished, but was given a chance to redeem himself.

Misaki City Final Battle Arc[]

Barma and Ose seeing Chiara approaching

As Denizens gather in Misaki City for the creation of Xanadu, Ose is with Barma on a railway line near the Seireiden shrine, Saishuku no Shadan. Later, they watch as Seere, Shana and Wilhelmina approach on board Chiara's jet. Ose orders his cannon Rinne to fire at the Flame Haze while readying his Unrestricted Spell. He watches as Seere breaks the spell's insignia with his strings and the Flame Haze fly away.[1]

After Xanadu had been created, Ose meets Bel Peol, Sydonay and the Snake of the Festival at the Saishuku no Shadan, along with Haborym, Orobas, Leraje, Stolas, and Barma. The Snake of the Festival tells the group to live on in the new world and Ose flies up to Xanadu's entrance along with Haborym, Stolas, Leraje, Orobas, and Barma before being converted into Power of Existence.[2]
