Killed by Akame

General Esdeath is a major antagonist in the manga and anime series Akame ga Kill. She is a general of the Empire, and one of their most powerful members. Her Teigu gives her control over ice, and she is thusly one of the most feared members of the Empire. She is the leader of the Jaegers.


Esdeath is a sadist with a strong sense of bloodlust and a severe lack of empathy. She enjoys inflicting physical and emotional pain on her opponents, and has no qualms with massacring scores of people. She enjoys war and the thrill of battle. Due to her great power, Esdeath yearns to face an opponent that matches her own abilities. 

At a young age, she was instilled by her father with the mindset that the strong live and the weak die, a philosophy that carried on into adulthood. When her subordinates are killed, she often dismisses this as them being weak. Despite this, Esdeath has shown a genuine fondness of her followers, and is greatly charismatic. 

Powers and abilitiesEdit

Esdeath is considered the Empire's strongest soldier, and is without a doubt one of the most powerful characters in the series. She possesses a Teigu called Devil's Extract that allows her to create ice. This ability allows her to kill scores of enemies in a short amount of time by freezing them to death. Her trump card allows her to temporarily freeze time itself.

Esdeath was a skilled combatant at a young age, taking part in hunts as a child. She grew comfortable with the idea of inflicting pain on others during her childhood in the village. As an adult , she is a master swordsman, being able to kill dozens of opponents in a short amount of time.
