Elliot Nightray (エリオット ナイトレイ, Eriotto Naitorei) was the final child of Bernard and Bernice Nightray, making him an heir to the Nightray Dukedom. Elliot's closest friend was Leo, an orphan from The House of Fianna in Sablier whom Elliot grew to respect for their mutual interest in the arts and Leo's complete disregard toward Elliot's noble title. Elliot had always been taught by his father to hate the Vessalius Dukedom, as they were the ones to stain the name of the Nightray Dukedom and thereby cast them into the shadows of the noble world. This changed after Elliot met Oz, as Elliot began to see Oz more as a friend than an enemy, and together they had intended on reshaping the bond between the Vessaliuses and the Nightrays.

In an unfortunate accident prior to meeting Oz, Elliot received a fatal wound when he encountered the Chain, Humpty Dumpty, and so Leo had Elliot form a Illegal Contract with the Chain in order to seal the wound temporarily. Unbeknownst to Leo and even Elliot himself, Humpty Dumpty took to imitating the murderous style of The Head Hunter and controlled Elliot into murdering the majority of his family. After discovering the truth, Elliot made a point of rejecting Humpty Dumpty after all he'd done, an act which killed both the Chain and himself in order to save the lives of so many others.


Elliot has beige-colored hair and blue eyes.He also has 2 blue earrings (studs) in each ear. In his first appearance, he wore standard Lutwidge uniform. He keeps a blade with his family crest in a violin case. Elliot is hotheaded, blunt and always forces his opinions on everybody else. Ada, however, thinks he is a nice and dependable person deep down. Leo also stated that "he is smart, yet he is still an idiot".

He first meets Oz in the Lutwidge library where they get into a fight over a character in the novel series The Holy Knight (Elliot spoils the ending for Oz's favorite character, Edgar: that Edgar dies in an act of self sacrifice). He hated the Vessalius family, a belief that is his fathers. He also doesn't like Ada calling his name and despises how the Vessalius seem to get away with anything just because they were heroes 100 years ago. However, after learning more of Oz and his past, he decides to "judge everything with [his] own eyes". He now views things differently from before, and accepts Oz's friendship.

When Gilbert and Vincent first came to the Nightray household, Elliot was told to stay away from them, for they were up to no good. With his previous personality, he tried to accept his brothers' wishes, but couldn't understand the reason, so he grew to accept them more each day, gaining respect for both of them. Though he seems to be greatly annoyed by Gilbert, in reality, he cares about him.
