Fafnir (ファフニール Fafunīru?) is a character in Little Witch Academia. He is an old dragon and a wealthy shareholder.


In appearance, Fafnir looks like a dragon from Eastern mythology. He has an antromorphic body with a long neck, white scales, two big horns and gray hair on its head, eyebrows and beard. He wears a purple robe and a pair of slippers.


Fafnir behaves like a grumpy old man, often screaming and blaming others. He is quite cheating and deceitful, deceiving Luna Nova for a thousand years to be paid money that he did not really owe. He believes that magic is an outdated thing that has no place in the modern world, which leads to earn money through modern investments.



Back in the day, Fafnir was known as one of the most brutal dragons. A thousand years ago, Luna Nova Academy asked him for a loan that was sealed in a document written in ancient dragonese. Since no one in Luna Nova could read the dragonese, Fafnir took advantage of it so that the directors would pay them regularly a sum of interests that in fact they did not have to pay.

Luna Nova and the White Dragon

Given the economic problems that Luna Nova was facing, the teachers became unable to pay the requested interest. Because of this, Fafnir sent several of his robot dragons to take the Sorcerer's Stone as a form of payment.

When some students of Luna Nova entered the Rastavan Ruins with the intention of recovering the Sorcerer's Stone, the majority were captured by their robots while the others arrived by their account until his office. When the teachers arrive in an attempt to renegotiate the debt, Fafnir reveals everything about it as well as their intention to destroy Luna Nova if they do not pay it. However, Diana appears then having deciphered the artifice of Fafnir thanks to that she had learned to read dragonese. After being forced to return the Sorcerer's Stone and cancel the debt, he expresses that Luna Nova is destined to disappear as no one is still interested in magic to which Akko responds saying that someday she will make people get excited about the magic again.

Fafnir appears watching the battle of Akko and Diana against the missile, giving them his Fuel Spirit just like the whole country.


As a dragon, Fafnir possesses a great longevity, having more than thousand years of age. Despite not demonstrating the common skills of dragons like flying and fire breathing, he was able to exhale a gust of wind through his nose capable of sending everything flying ahead.
