Wahl Icht

Wahl Icht is a high-tech machine of the Machias race that is part of the Alvarez Empire as one of the Spriggan 12, the protection guard of Emperor Spriggan. His epithet within the empire is "The Adjudicator". The real Wahl Icht is a thin, youthful-looking man with medium-length, wavy, messy dark hair; his bangs are parted to the left and hang over his left eye. Both of his eyes are very distinct, with unique "eyelashes" that jut out at four points on the outer vertical edges of each eye; his expression is consistently furrowed, and he appears to almost constantly wear a devilish grin that exposes his extremely sharp, pointed teeth. Around his jawline are small holes, and his ears are studded with screws.


For attire, the real Wahl wears light-colored coveralls with a harness buckled around his chest and shoulders; the collar is black, and around his waist he wears a black belt. On the shoulders of each arm of his coveralls is the symbol of the Alvarez Empire, and he wears very long rubber gloves that extend from all the way up to just below the aforementioned marks. To complete his outfit, Wahl wears rubber boots that reach up to the very top of his thighs. The proxy of Wahl, in its human form, resembles a tall, oddly shaped man with unnaturally long arms. It has a rather big, oval-shaped face, small pointy ears and glaring eyes with dark bags underneath them. It is often seen with a mischievous grin and seemingly has no nose. Its hairstyle resembles an antenna; strands of its hair juts upwards, forming one thin mohawk at the top of the head, while the surrounding parts of hair are somewhat cut apart from one other, shaping a distinctive pattern on both of its temples. In regards to clothing, the proxy wears an ensemble consisting of a dark, high-collared open jacket with the sleeves slightly rolled up, over a long, striped sweater and light colored, tight-fitting jeans. The jacket bears an insignia on both sides of the upper chest-region, together resembling the wings of a bird. Around its neck, the proxy adorns a necklace consisting of various unspecified accessories, placed in a particular order. In addition, it also sports a camouflage patterned scarf, as well as round, leopard-print shoes.


The proxy is usually shown with a mischievous grin, regardless of the situation he's in, lending credence to his objective and controlled persona. Wahl also seems to be conscious of villainous and unjust actions, with him mentioning the sinful act of capturing his majesty's former lover, but nevertheless obliges dutifully. It also expresses the tendency to speak with reference to law and order, dictating at one point that Weakness allows it to conduct prosecution, and said that it was going to "impose the death penalty" upon Freed. The real Wahl (in his "impulsive" personality), however, is a maniacal individual who wears a crazed grin and violently cackles at things he finds humorous, including his own comrades' defeat and capture. However, even when he finds things humorless, he still laughs, such as at the prospect of Fairy Tail sullying the name of the Alvarez Empire all by themselves. Wahl has also exhibited a degree of arrogance, referring to himself as "the great Wahl" and the "Machias tribe elite". What makes Wahl remarkable is his ability to, as a Machias, completely rewrite his own personality to better suit his current predicament; in order to ensure his own victory, as the smallest chance existed that his current personality would cause him to lose in a fight against Laxus Dreyar, Wahl discarded his carefree persona and adopted one that was "heartless". Said change removed any ounce of frivolity in his character, and reduced him to an emotionless killing machine. Wahl is initially mentioned briefly by Marin Hollow during his and Brandish μ's trip to Caracole Island, and makes his first actual appearance during the meeting of the Spriggan 12, having been summoned by Zeref. Wahl remarks about the emperor's intention to reclaim his love interest, Mavis Vermilion, in the form of Fairy Heart, though this statement is dismissed by Zeref, the Dark Mage noting that he only wants the power that dwells inside the Lacrima. Upon invading Ishgar and reaching Fairy Tail's home town, Magnolia, Wahl tears through a part of Freed's Jutsu Shiki barrier, rendering the town able to be entered and entering with his subordinates. Wahl claims that Fairy Tail's defenses are way too fragile, before encouraging his affiliates to show the Mage Guild what the Alvarez Empire is capable of. After watching his troops being put to sleep by Mirajane in her Seilah-form, Wahl takes note of the fact that she used a Curse, Macro, remarking that it is one of Zeref's many toys. A tad later, as Ajeel utilizes his Sand World in order to surround the whole town in a massive sandstorm, Wahl commends the fact that someone within the enemy troops has forced Ajeel to use his ultimate attack. When the sandstorm subsides due to Ajeel's defeat, Wahl reveals five mechanical soldiers that he created with his Magic, Weakness, that exploit the analyzed weaknesses of his foes. Wahl then bounds away to kill Freed and dispel the Jutsu Shiki barrier permanently. In no time at all, the man arrives at the Kardia Cathedral and creates Weakness Soldiers to deal with Evergreen and Bickslow; the soldiers neutralize their primary forms of Magic, but when Evergreen turns her secondary Stone Eyes on Wahl and it fails, he transforms into a more mechanical-looking form and reveals himself to be a Machias, not a human. Just after the transformation, Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki arrives, and Wahl tries to scan him using his Weakness, but finds that Ichiya has too many weaknesses to pinpoint one to specifically abuse, thus causing him momentary confusion. He then reveals to Ichiya that he does not have a nose when the man tries to use his Poison Perfume to kill him, and then subsequently attacks him, but Ichiya responds by utilizing his Thunder Perfume to execute Justice Thunder Men in the hopes of incapacitating the machines with electricity, but Wahl reveals his trump card: Voltex Charge; an ability that allows him to absorb electricity to increase his own power and change form. He begins to taunt Freed before resolving to kill him, but he is attacked by Bickslow and Evergreen before batting them away for his Weakness Soldiers to handle. Even when they deal with his soldiers, Wahl makes it over to Freed and motions to kill him while he is immobile and keeping the barrier erect, but when Natsu chimes in via Telepathy and tells Freed he can drop his barrier and fight due to the Western Army's destruction, Freed does so. Together with Ichiya, Freed rips through Wahl and destroy his body, leaving nothing behind but a laughing head.
