Officer Lloyd is an officer that teaches at the Barsburg Military Academy, appearing to teach both written work and combat lessons. In the manga, he is referred to as 'Sensei' by the students he teaches. His name is given as Lloyd in the Seven Ghosts chapter, where he was the major antagonist, and attacked Teito after Teito escapes to the Church. However, he is neutral in the finalized series.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
The name 'Lloyd' originates from the Welsh word: llwyd, which translates to 'grey'. This could be a reference to his grey/purple hair.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Physical apperance[edit | edit source]
Lloyd does not appear to be very tall, being estimated 170cm (in the anime at least) as he was shown to be a few inches smaller than Miroku. His build is slender and his weight is unknown. He has a long, oval-shaped face, with a long, thin nose, large mouth and full lips, and large, purple-coloured eyes. His hair is a light shade of purple/grey, cropped short at the back but with two longer bangs at the front at each side of his face. He has a full fringe with longer bangs to the left and right of his face. His two longer bangs are tied with cylindrical, red clips. In the Seven Ghosts chapter, Lloyd's hair is not tied back, and it reaches his knees.
Clothing[edit | edit source]
Lloyd wears the Barsburg military uniform under a white robe that almost reaches his ankles. The robe has a high collar at the back that opens at the neck in a v-shape at the front. On the shoulders are rectangular, red clips and on the back of the robe is the insignia of the Barsburg military. At the front is a large, gold, decorative clip, that extends from his left shoulder and forms an upsidedown 'v' on his chest. The edges of the clip are two red jewels. Engraved across the clip is something written in Zaiphon symbols.
Personality[edit | edit source]
|“||You never came to any of my practical skill lessons. That makes me sad.||”|
—Lloyd's questioning Teito's disappearances.
Lloyd appears to be quite strict but friendly with his students. In lessons he is jokey and sarcastic, and chooses to settle problems in a light-hearted manner. He jokes with Teito, saying that him not attending his classes makes him sad, but does not look pleased when he sees Shuri with porn.
Lloyd appears concerned about his own reputation, as he scolds Teito for not killing the criminal, as if one of his students hesitated it would make him look bad.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Lloyd is seen interacting with the officers around him warmly, suggesting he is on good terms with most of them. His relaxed nature during lessons suggest he has a friendly relationship with his students. However, he seems to dislike it when his students do things that disappoint him or do not meet his expectations, as he looks annoyed or unimpressed when Shuri's porn stash is revealed, and tells Teito that he (Teito) must kill the Begleiter Exam Prisoner, without any sympathy for Teito's personal feelings on the matter.
History[edit | edit source]
Little is known of Lloyd's past other than he is a teacher at Barsburg Military Academy. It is likely that he went to a similar academy when he was younger, and he appeared to have worked at there for a while, as he was shown to be familiar with Miroku Barsburg and the officers around him.
Manga Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Begleiter Exam[edit | edit source]
He next appears in one of the study rooms where he is Teito's teacher. He complains that Teito hasn't been attending his combat classes, but moves on when he hears Teito's reason: that he is excused from all combat lessons. When Mikage frames Shuri by planting porn on him, Lloyd looks rather unimpressed.
|“||The exam is still not over. I've told you that he must be killed.||”|
—Officer Lloyd, telling Teito the requirements of the exam.
Lloyd is finally seen at the examination, where he watches the students as they take their exam. When Teito refuses to kill the criminal, he becomes annoyed at him and tells him that he must kill him.
Post-Begleiter exam[edit | edit source]
In the manga, Lloyd can be seen standing next to Ayanami when Teito launches his attempt on Ayanami's life. It is likely that Lloyd returned to teaching after Teito escaped. As he has not been seen again since the first episode/chapter, his status is unknown.
Differences in the manga and anime[edit | edit source]
Teito's assassination attempt[edit | edit source]
In the manga, Lloyd is present when Teito attempts to kill Ayanami. In the anime, he is not there.
Early 07-Ghost[edit | edit source]
Officer Lloyd appears in the pilot chapter, Seven Ghosts, as well as making a brief appearance in the Begleiter chapter.
In Seven Ghosts he was a major antagonist. It was heavily implied that he was the one who killed Mikage, instead of Ayanami, and he pursued Teito when he fled to the Church. He arrives with a small army, with Teito believing he planned to kill all witnesses, and duelled Teito. He put the promise collar on Teito and was winning until the Eye of Mikhail is unleashed. Teito then kills Lloyd.
In Begleiter, Lloyd appears to have been a scientist rather than a teacher, as he is seen in a lab and creates formulas. He appears very briefly where he shows Ayanami the new formula he had created. He looks defeated when Ayanami, unimpressed with the current one, asks him to make another one.
