~ Esdeath
Esdeath is a primary character in the anime/manga series Akame ga Kill!, as a general for the Empire. No, not the Star Wars one.


Born in the Northern Frontier Lands as the sole remaining survivor of her village, Esdeath spent most of her childhood with her father, who was the chief of his tribe. Even at a young age, Esdeath was a very skilled and formidable fighter and even hunter, living by the creed "The strong live and the weak die". After witnessing her entire tribe, including her father, dying, Esdeath vowed to become the strongest. She joined the Empire's military and rose through the ranks quickly, and after taming a chained off Teigu, she earned the title of the strongest in the Empire. Eventually, she fell in love with a young man named Tatsumi, even though they were destined to be enemies, leading to a story of psychotic Romeo and Juliet, in a way.
