—Akko about Constanze in "Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time"
Constanze Amalie von Braunschbank-Albrechtsberger (コンスタンツェ・アマーリエ・フォン・ブラウンシュバンク＝アルブレヒツベルガー Konsutantse Amārie fon Buraunshubanku-Aruburehitsuberugā ) is a character introduced in The Enchanted Parade. She is a known misfit because of her being guilty of breaking campus regulations of owning, manufacturing, and selling high-tech electronic devices on school premises. She is a young witch from Germany.
Constanze has a short stature. She is a little taller than 5'0". She has long, thin navy blue hair that reaches down to her waist and is tied into a low ponytail with a big red ribbon. She has teal green eyes and her skin is slightly tanned. She is usually characterized by a grumpy or serious expression. Constanze wears the standard Luna Nova uniform, and her sash-belt and hatband are both customized to be colored green. She's not usually seen with the hooded dress, as she instead usually wears a vest and a skirt of the same color.
Constanze never speaks, but she appears to be friendly and communicates through her own actions and writing. She also controls her Stanbots with magic and uses them to express herself.
She is very serious and rarely smiles; it is possible that she has been like this ever since she was very young as she has trouble at smiling for the first time. She does not like when others interfere with her projects, preferring always to work alone, which leads her to perform rather dangerous acts on the person who's disturbing her.
Abilities and Equipment
Like any other witch, she has her own wand that she brings wherever she goes and is stored in the sash around her waist. She casts spells with it, but most frequently uses it to operate or empower different kinds of magi-mechanical tools.
She is also able to control her broom as she is seen to use it without any effort, and she has even made mechanical modifications to allow it to fly in any situation.Aside from being able to cast spells efficiently and easily control her broom, Constanze has amazing mechanical abilities, being able to manufacture high-tech electronic devices by herself. She was able to create a washing machine, a generator and a water pump in minutes. She has made a robot called Stanbot that she controls with magic to express herself, and later create tons of them. When not in use, its feet are tucked beneath it, making a semi-flat box that she carries wherever she goes. It can also be used as a magic gun, using the magic stored in her wand as ammo, though it has "unlimited ammo" when a magic source is around. She has also been seen using it as a bazooka, a griddle and an electric oven.
Magic-Mechanical Devices Developed

- Constanze rarely speaks, with her only dialogue being said on the last episode of the Little Witch Academia anime. She is, however, often heard making noises indicating exclamation and emotion. If she needs to be understood with language, she uses her Stanbot to traduce.
- Her Japanese voice actress, Rie Murakawa, also voices Wangari.
- Her English voice actress, Jennifer Alyx, also voices Hannah.
- Constanze is many ways is like Croix Meridies. They both are very good with electronics and making those electronics do things for them.
- The name "Constanze" may come from Constanze Mozart, the wife of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It is also a variation of the name Constance, that derives from Latin and means "constant".
