F. Novartis (F・ノバルティス) is the sixth Anguis of Ouroboros and leader of the Thirteen Factories network.


Doctor Novartis is in charge of the unification of the Thirteen Factories, which are each specialised in a particular expertise. He is also responsible for the development of humanoid weapons and network systems. He is regarded as an avaricious scientist, living to satisfy his own intellectual curiosity regardless of cost.

Strained mentorship

One of the developers of humanoid weapons is Joerg Rosenberg of the Doll Studio in Crossbell. Novartis considers him peerless when it comes to fine-tuning and making the final adjustments to dolls, whether they are consumer collectables or humanoid weapons. He had Joerg do the final check on the Aion.

Despite Doctor Novartis' praise of Joerg's work, their working relationship is strained. Joerg loathes Novartis' way of working. When he was still working on the Pater-Mater, Doctor Novartis confiscated the machine and had it sync with a still very young Renne. Especially since Novartis knew the risks of his decision, Joerg considered him inhuman.

Phantasmal Blaze Plan

Ouroboros Report (Ao)

Doctor Novartis, alongside Campanella, Arianrhod, Mariabell Crois and Shirley Orlando, reporting back to the Grandmaster after their work on the Phantasmal Blaze Plan.

For the Phantasmal Blaze Plan, Doctor Novartis collaborated with Arianrhod, Campanella and the Crois family to bring their plans in Crossbell to fruition. He provided them with humanoid weapons - Aion Type-α, Type-β and Aion Type-γ - and, as agreed on with Mariabell Crois, he recovered the Type-α after completing his duties.

When he caught a glimpse of the awakened KeA, Doctor Novartis expressed a profound interest in the newborn potential that exceeded the original Sept-Terrion of Mirage's powers and started to collect data on her.

When the Azure Tree appeared he became deeply interested in researching the phenomenon, but had to leave since the focus of the Phantasmal Blaze Plan would shift to Erebonia next.
