- "The master of Pandora Crown, the mage of eternity who has seen the world grow old"
- — Edward Norman
Bastien Mikaels (バスティアン·マイケルズ Basutian Maikeruzu) is the Guild Master of the Dark Guild Pandora Crown and the mastermind behind both the Midas Island incident and the war between his guild and the Magic Council.
Bastien is a middle-aged man with tanned skin, olive green eyes and brown slicked back hair (in this sense he has a very mediterranean look).
His usual attire is fairly simple and consists of what seems to be a japanese gakuran in white with blue trim. On top of his gakuran he has a piece of cloth covering his two shoulders and mainly his left shoulder and arm. He also wears what seems to be a a white hakama and black leather shoes. He has a very traditional japanese style except for his shoes.
He seems a very kind man which is strange seeing as he is a Dark Mage in fact this kind side is all a masquerade for his true self he is even worse than all of his disciples reunited.
Despite his true nature Bastien is extremely wise and possesses knowledge of a lot of arcane secrets.
Unlike his disciples the master actually considers Legal Mages to be worthy opponents and even states that many other Dark Guilds are just weaklings.
Bastien's past is legend to the members of his guild, nobody knows of his childhood he himself cannot even remember who he was, where he comes from or his own family. His first memories are from his early twenties when he commited a massacre, he doesn't remember how it all happened but he knows he killed the entire town including the person that is supposedly his wife. Nearly driven to madness by this act he begins a killing spree that he will never be caught for. Once he had quenched his bloodthirst he decided to create the Pandora Crown dark guild, a horde of montruous killers and assassins following this own ideals.
During the first years of the Dark Guild Bastien made them accomplish horrid tasks such as mass murder but at one point he discovered a great library of hidden tomes, after spending most of his time in this new found haven his disciples started to question his leadership. In a fit of rage Bastien killed every single member thus ending the first generation of his guild.
His true legend begins with the second generation known as the glorious generation, they were known as the most power Dark Mages of their time, he lead his disciples to victory during the Dark Guild Civil War and it has been said that by the end of the war he stood upon a mountain of corpses. The end of this generation is unknown but many think that one of his mages tried a coup d'etat and failed resulting in their massacre like their predecessors.
During the third generation Bastien was not heard of much as his guild slipped into legend and he began to research a way to prolong his life (he was around 80 by this time), at one point during this period he managed to develop (or control) Age Magic that provided him with a new youth.
Before the events of the current arc, Bastien found and raised both Raven Thorne and Max Albus , trained the fourth generation and plotted the events of Midas Island and the way to start a war against the kingdom.
Midas Island Arc
Bastien was only seen once during this story arc, he appears in the Midas Island sanctuary after Emerald Star's defeat, he is shown to steal the youth from the fallen Mages before leaving.
Pandora War Arc
A few months after the events of Midas Island the dark guild reunites in the main hall of their headquarters, Bastien is discussing his attack plan to take control of the kingdom. He explains his entire plan in detail especially the part about throwing down the gauntlet to the Legal Guilds.
