Daryl Cavendish (ダリル・キャベンディッシュ Dariru Kyabendisshu?) is a character in Little Witch Academia. She is a witch from the House of Cavendish and the aunt of Diana.

Appearance

Daryl is an elegant middle-aged woman with fair complexion. Like her sister, niece and daughters, she has blue eyes and blond hair with tea-green highlights that she collects in a ponytail. She usually wears a green suit over a white shirt, a yellow tie, and a blue skirt that covers his feet. In formal situations, wear an elegant aquamarine dress, a scarf with black feathers, a necklace and long white gloves.

Personality

Daryl is an ambitious and greedy woman. Unlike the rest of her family, she feels very little respect for the traditions, giving importance solely to money, being able to shed the fiery magic relics of her family. By belonging to a prestigious family, she treats people of great repute with great respect and manners while despising ordinary people.

Daryl's opinion on tradition and history of House of Cavendish was very low, and she revealed to be more indifferent and sinister than she lets on, a trait which slipped when attempted to sell House of Cavendish's most valuable treasures. Daryl's greed made her see her family's tradition and history not as actual things to cherish, but rather as trash and useless. She is metaphorically blind to how important her family's legacy is, has no remorse in desecrating the said legacy, and outright antagonizes anyone that questions and opposes her (like Akko and her niece Diana). When Diana called her out for her sacrilege against her family's history and traditions and vows to become a better head of House of Cavendish, she had no restraint in using her magic to deter her niece and anyone who help her, even if it also endangered their lives in process.

After she and her daughters' were defeated and nearly cursed for the attempted murder and interference the ritual, Daryl realized how wrong she was and accepted Diana's wish to become better head of House of Cavendish.
