Chapter 23 (Image)
Tania Doberg is a S-Class WH witch and Administrator of the North WH Base. She is the sister of Tarras Doberg and the 24th head of the Doberg family. She is currently the most powerful WH following Edea's death and Vihyungrang's retreat to Shrina.
Tania Doberg is a voluptuous beauty whose towering, statuesque looks rival those of many of the witches. She wears her witch hat that has the appearance of a billed officer's hat askew with a ruby in place of an insignia. She has long, black hair and has a lock which usually covers one side of her face.
She wears a white strapless gown with a sheer slit up to the thigh on her left side, revealing a long, shapely leg ending in a pair of tall, pointed heels on each foot. On her shoulders, she wears an open chested jacket with a collar that extends down to her arms as sleeves with frilled cuffs. She wears a single ring on her right index finger, her only jewelry in addition to a pair of small hoop earrings with a hollowed-out Doberg crest. She occasionally wears a long mantle that has two layers, lined with fur at the collar, it splits into an outer layer going to her hip with the WH symbol and outer edge decorated in gold, and a long blank layer that drapes to her ankles. Her chest, in addition to her white gown, is covered by a black zippered bodice, with three metal studs linking attachment strings from the left to a single stud on the right. The bodice ends just under her large breasts, which are displayed with little modesty: majority of her sensuous cleavage is uncovered, with a broach displaying the Crest of the Doberg family over it attached to her gown.
Although publicly known to be very nice and is in reality very formal, Tania has a very dominating personality. She believes firmly in the Doberg battle teaching and is completely cold and callous in battle. Compared to her brother's ego, Tania's is far, far more severe and arrogant to the point that she puts down even her fellow WHs while boasting about herself or her family (something not even Tarras has yet to do). She has an affinity for flowers, which continues into battle when she uses Earth Flower.
In terms of her brother, her attitude is a bit mixed and hard to understand; she can be patronizing and has a feeling of absolute superiority over Tarras. When he didn't answer a call from her, she crushed her phone with her bare hands and decided to "instill fear in him again" meaning that she looks down on Tarras even more so than most other A-Class WHs, but still sees him as better than most and when someone insults Tarras in front of her she automatically assaults the perpetrator, meaning that she accepts Tarras as a Doberg, but still looks down on him as her inferior. She also does not like it when they are compared, especially in terms of strength. In addition to her ego, she is a sucker for being praised, having been done so by Tasha and Merlin greatly improved her outlook towards them, and even demanded more compliments from Merlin.
Despite her intimidating and egotistical persona she is not above showing others respect, she has taken a bit of a liking to Tasha Godspell (though she did originally believe him to be a female), and when speaking to those who are family members or friends, she can be unusually sweet. When Tasha learned he would be forced to forgo his contract with Halloween in order for the Witch Hunters to gain the location of the Four Great Witches' Castle, she spoke to him with a level of understanding that had a touch of sympathy mixed in.
Little is known about Tania's past besides her being a member of the Doberg Family. It's known that she is the current head of the Doberg family, and the manager of all its wealth, facilities, and political power. She has said that she has installed "fear" into her younger brother, Tarras Doberg.
At some point after D. Arlo became an S-Class WH, he came in contact with and attacked her. Although she states that both of them used their full power that time, she completely defeated him without sustaining any injuries herself. After that instance, D. Arlo suppresses his desire to kill Witches when he is in her presence out of fear.
The Knight and Rose Arc
She was mentioned during the train ride and she called Tarras, causing him to respond in a scared manner. She was stated to be a nice person by Visul, but was rebutted by Tarras, saying they haven't seen her true identity.
Fights in Britannia Arc
Tania first appears to rescue Tasha Godspell and Halloween from Lancelot by ambushing him with Earth Flower, although he dodges it. When Tasha first believes her to be Tarras, she tells him not to ruin her reputation by calling her his name. She then proceeds to focus on Lancelot, attempting to kill Guinevere and blasting them with a full-scale Earth Flower that destroys half the castle. After learning that Tasha was teammates with Tarras, she gives him a lollipop, but not before making Tasha fear his death. Unable to find her younger brother, she learns that he had lied to her, and was heading to the West. She crushes her phone after Tarras rejects her call, and, before leaving, notices Lancelot had survived.
She reappears to talk to the Archmage Merlin after his request. He convinces her to summon a meeting with Central, something all S-Class WHs are able to do, but only for emergencies. He offered to reveal the location of the Four Legendary Witches' Castles, to which Tania calmly asked for what in exchange. He stated his terms to which she accepted. After speaking with him, she goes and looks for Tasha. She finds him bickering with Cougar Kunein as he tries to find his lost arm. Mistaking him for a woman, she calls him "Miss Godspell," inciting the ridicule of Cougar. Sick of hearing Cougar's sneers, she blasts him with the Lance of Gaia. He orders Tasha to never take his eyes off him in her presence, to which he nervously obliged. Tasha tells her his current circumstances and Tania finds and brings Tasha's arm using Earth Scan and Lance of Gaia. At that moment, Tasha tells her that he is male; this surprises her, inciting her to grope his parts. Finding this peculiar, Tania asks how Tasha could have a mana source within his body. When Tasha chased her to ask about his source of mana, she was too preoccupied to answer him.
Tania was present during the meeting with the Central and Merlin. She was shown surprised when Merlin revealed his age. Tania voted to accept Merlin's request was the person who interrupted Tasha and Cougar's quarrel. She informed Tasha that he had at most a week to accept central's decision. Following the meeting, she orders Linda Cuthbert to summon many WHs to Britain, especially those dispatched to the East.
Escape from Britain Arc
While walking to a meeting, she bumps into Eunryu and asks the reason for his presence. He answers her and warns her for her absence from Tasha's escape. She states she is only a WH from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. She arrives at the gathering with Eunryu, along with Merlin, Sir Kay and Sir Gawain. When Kay mocked her, she questions the knights location during the event. Kay replies that he didn't want to be involved in internal affairs, to which Tania replies he hid because he was too scared to fight. She was surprised to hear Merlin was willing to continue the agreement and listened to the three extra conditions given by Merlin.
Powers and Abilities
Being the current strongest WH, she possesses an ability that few can match and is probably stronger than high ranking witches. She is noted to be weaker than Vihyungrang who's strength is worth two S-Class WH. Tania, as a member of the Doberg family, specializes in earth-style warfare. She manipulates the spirits of the earth to do her bidding. She has often been seen using "excessive" force, however, said attacks are as casual as flicking a finger for her. Like Tarras, it seems she must make contact with the earth to use her attacks, but she does so by tapping the ground with her staff. It's assumed that she can use all of Tarras' techniques and more, with greater power than her younger brother.
Earth Spirit User: Tania is currently the strongest S-Class WH left on Earth, and utilizes the energy of the Spirits of the Earth for offensive and defensive measures. However, she appears to value beauty in her attacks, and uses them in a magnitude far surpassing Tarras.
- Lance of Gaia: Spikes of earth spring up from the ground. Many can appear at a time. This move can deliver objects by storing it in a hollow tip and opening the tip like a flower when object is collected.
- Earth Scan: This abilty allows Tania to scan the the area for a person. This ability picks up anything that is touching the ground. Through this ability, she was able to ascertain the survival of Lancelot after he was hit by her Earth Flower. She also located Tasha's lost arm with this technique.
- Earth Flower: Tania creates a massive assortment of stone spikes explode from the ground in order to smash and penetrate her enemies. It is the size of a Britannian castle, far larger than that of her brothers, and resembles a flower in its shape, giving the technique its name. She has also shown far better control over it than her brother.
Extreme Strength: Tania can easily crush objects with her bare hands, as shown when Tarras rejected a call from her, causing her to crush the phone.
Mana Source: Like all witches, she has a source of mana. This strengthens her attacks and increases her body's durability. The mana produced prevents her from aging.
Perception: A trait all witches possess, the ability to see mana. Tania can locate a source mana.
- Sword Staff: Tania wields a stylized noblewoman's walking staff, with a superficial metal construction. At the top, a large hollow cross in a circle is substituted for a pommel, indicating her alliance to the Witch Hunters. It is shown to be available to S-Class WHs, as the Three Sisters of Fate who represent Edea Florence wield one each. It also has a blade inside of it in a Japanese chokutou-style.
- Tania resembles Olivier Armstrong from Full Metal Alchemist. Their hairstyles are similar, and they both believe in crushing their enemies until there is nothing left of them. They both have younger brothers, whom they belittle and think poorly of. Tania and Olivier also are called "Queens": Tania is the Queen of Earth, while Armstrong is the Ice Queen. The two of them also lead bases in the North
- When she is first seen, there is an unidentified man standing next to her. His identity is yet to be revealed.
- (To Lancelot) "To dodge my sneak attack, you're not bad. But could she do the same?"
- (To Lancelot) "Ashamed? Why?"
- "On the battlefield, there are only allies and enemies. And enemies are to be thoroughly and brutally trampled on by any means necessary. This is the Doberg's teachings."
- (Before attacking Lancelot with a full-scale Earth Flower) "But anyways, do you like flowers? I love them."
