Piece (ピース?) is a character that appears exclusively in Last note of the Golden Witch. She challenges Battler, Beatrice, and Ange to a game where they must determine her identity.

Appearance Edit

Piece has light blue string-like hair, and dons a golden crown with a veil on her head. She has a small red bow tie and a white cravat on her neck. She has an elegant dress that is a shade of blue lighter than her hair.

Personality Edit

Piece initially presents herself as polite, but she's prone to short bouts where she puts on a crazed expression and makes a double peace sign. Piece also has a verbal tic of "pi-su".

Background Edit

Piece was created by Featherine and sent to challenge Battler's group. From an anti-fantasy perspective, she is Asumu Ushiromiya. Piece is a manifestation of Asumu's survival creating a butterfly effect and causing several characters to become different than they presently are, thereby "erasing" them from existence.

Skills and Abilities Edit

Piece can extend her hair to unnatural lengths, using this to drown and devour characters and pieces. When Piece devours someone, she completely erases them from existence, making others lose their memories of them. Piece can also take the place of devoured characters and make people think she existed as them all along.

Relationships Edit

Role in the Story Edit

Last note of the Golden Witch Edit

Piece first appears when she calls Battler, Beatrice and Ange to a tea room and challenges them to find out her identity. The gameboard has a similar setup to Twilight of the Golden Witch where a young Ange visits the island, Kinzo is alive and Beato is present as the 19th guest. Piece soon arrives on the island and devours Kyrie, taking her place as "Piece Ushiromiya" and Rudolf's wife. The young Ange is the only one to not recognize Piece at all, and she is soon devoured as well.

Kinzo, Piece-Beato and the other servants realize that Piece is an uninvited guest and do battle with her, however they are summarily erased. In the meta-world, Battler, Ange and Beatrice present their theories as to who Piece really is.

In the after-credits scene, Piece pulls several rejected characters out of oblivion and talks about them, including Virgilius.

Trivia Edit

  • Piece first originated as fanart for a Rozen Maiden contest.[1] Her design also resembles Alice from TRianThology.
  • The words "piece" and "peace" are written in the same katakana in Japanese, with similar pronunciations.
