Esdeath is one of the main antagonists of the Akame ga Kill! series. She appeared in the 124th episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Gray VS Esdeath, where she fought against Gray Fullbuster from the Fairy Tail series. She was voiced by Emma Breezy.
Esdeath was born in the Northern Frontier Lands and is the sole remaining survivor of her village, the Clan Partas Clan. She spent most of her childhood in the north with her Tribe and she was very close with her father, the clan chief due to the death of her mother at the hand of a super-class Danger Beast. She was a skilled and formidable fighter at even such a young age. Whenever she caught prey for the tribe her father would begin gutting the creature without killing it. Due to this, she became comfortable with the idea of inflicting pain on living things. However, her father was worried that this might cause her to lose something that she can't regain, but in order for her to survive this was fine with him. Her father told her that in the North "The strong live and the weak die", a creed she kept close to her heart. One day she returned from an outing to find her tribe destroyed, with everyone either dead or dying. Her father was mortally wounded and soon past away in her arms. From that day on, she vowed to herself to become stronger. Later, she joined the Empire's military, rising through the ranks rapidly, and at some point the Prime Minister allowed her to choose a Teigu, she noticed one that was chained off from the others, felt that it was calling for her and chose it. Instead of drinking one glass which would have been enough, she drank the whole thing. After taming the Teigu, Esdeath would gain the title of the strongest in the empire.
