Nelson (ネルソン Neruson ) is a character in Little Witch Academia. She is the broom-flying instructor of Luna Nova Magical Academy.
Nelson is a tall woman with black eyes and a long brown hair collected in a ponytail. She wears the standard uniform of Luna Nova's teachers along with a pair of pilot's googles, an aviator's cap under her hat, a green scarf and a parachute on her back.
Nelson is a firm and strict teacher, always orders her students to maintain their composure. She seems to take the broom-flight very seriously, prompting students not to take it lightly.
Nelson appears in the film giving the first broom flight class at the academy. In this one she intruates to the students that they fly of safe form and that they do not try to show off and end up causing an accident. When all the students leave the top of the tower in their brooms, Akko is too scared to do so, which causes Nelson to push her out, ending with Akko falling headlong.
Nelson appears giving the kind of flight in broom. As Akko and Sucy were new to school, she gives them special instructions to join the class, but Akko turns out to be unable to fly on her broom despite Nelson's advice, missing the teacher for her unusual disability.
She later serves as referee during the Luna Nova Cup.
As with most of the Luna Nova faculty, she appears to maintain a healthy professional relationship with the other teachers. It is safe to assume she is friends with Professor Finnelan, as they both have an aura of strictness, as well as a friendly demeanour towards each other as shown in "New Age Magic".
In "Orange Submariner", after Professor Ursula quickly substitutes the absent Professor Pisces with a fishing jig, Nelson enters the classroom to deliver papers. She is then convinced, by way of Ursula's impersonation, that Pisces has come down with an illness. Nelson thus offers to conduct the ensuing exam herself, with the intention of allowing Professor Pisces to recover, citing that in times of need, the faculty look out for each other.
Abilities and Equipment
As the broom-flying instructor at the Luna Nova Magical Academy, Nelson is very capable in Flight Magic. She is always equipped with all kinds of flying items and can activate her flying broom without using the spell. She also shows being able to create a magic megaphone with her wand.
