The Contrasts in Albedo from Overlord

Overlord, the immensely popular isekai series, has some amazing character designs. One of the most popular is Albedo, the angelic-faced NPC; she is the overseer of the Floor Guardians of the Great Tomb of Nazarick and, thus, one of the most powerful beings in the game.

Contrasting Looks and Personality

As an NPC, Momonga could view and change her settings while the game was still active with his administration privileges. She was created by Tabula Smaragdina, who was known for creating characters with contrasting looks and personalities.

Although she looks like a goddess, her original settings were for her to be a ‘bitch’. Despairing over this in what he thought were the last moments of the games, Momonga jokingly changes her settings to ‘deeply in love with Momonga’. Thus begins the main plot point of the series!

Loyalty and Lust

The change in her settings produces one of the most significant contrasts for Albedo. Now she is extremely loyal to Momonga - to the point of overwhelming obsession, instead of the slutty succubus she was initially designed as.

Succubi are female demons from folklore that seduce men in their dreams and have sex with them while they are sleeping. This may explain her obsession with Momonga, as her base nature is that of a nymphomaniac. But this characteristic has been erased, leading to her lusty heart focussing on one man.

Power Beyond Looks

Don’t let her slim physique and angelic expression fool you; Albedo is one of the game’s strongest characters. Even able to overpower Momonga when the lust overtakes her. She also has the highest defensive stats and can wield an impressive battle-ax. She is even capable of using magic when needed.

Level-Headed - To a Point

As the overseer of the guardians, Albedo is very organized and makes level-headed judgments. She is intelligent, and her administrative abilities are unrivaled, but she is also good at more domestic chores such as sewing and cleaning.

Her elegant smile and graceful poise hide the fact that she can unleash terrible power when she snaps. Her frustration is usually aimed at those she sees as getting too close to Momonga, as her programming causes her to be extremely jealous. Because of this, she has several fights with Shalltear.

She also shows no mercy to those she perceives to be of a weaker race, namely humans.

A Devotion That Transcends Worlds

Albedo and Momonga both appear in the ultimate crossover anime, Isekai Quartet. Stylized as chibi characters and sent back to high school with the characters from Re:Zero, The Saga of Tanya the Evil, and Konosuba, Albedo remains devoted to her master.

Even if now her worries are significantly different (such as not being paired with Momonga in the test of courage), she remains powerful.
