Elluka was born on January 30, BT 007 in the Magic Kingdom Levianta. During her youth, she followed the events concerning Project 'Ma' with Adam Moonlit and his test subject Eve Zvezda on television. As she grew up, Elluka honed her skills and became a powerful sorceress. At some point, she learned that only Eve, Adam, Meta Salmhofer, and Prophet Merry-Go-Round were capable of using the Swap Technique, a high-level spell. Some time after, Elluka was accepted as a priestess at the temple in Lighwatch.
Afterwards, she met and fell in love with the resident clockworker, Kiril Clockworker; discovering he was a HER, she cured him of his symptoms. The priestess was later expelled from the temple for her misconduct and became Kiril's assistant afterwards, moving in with him. Later on during their romance, Kiril proposed to his beloved and the two became engaged. During this time, Elluka befriended Kiril's sister, Irina. When rumors began sprouting that the mage had met with the god Held residing in Elphegort, she made it clear to her future family she had never even left Levianta during her entire life.
Project 'Ma'EditIn EC 013, both Elluka and Irina were selected as potential candidates for Project 'Ma' after being surveyed for their viability. As the time of the final selection grew closer, Elluka secretly confronted Milky Eights, Ly Li, and Irina at the temple, readying to kill the others with her knife.
After the seemingly accidental death of Ly Li and apparent suicide of Milky Eights, Irina approached Elluka, pleading that they stop the pointless deaths over becoming the new Ma. Once she said that both she and Kiril preferred the priestess as the candidate, Elluka embraced Irina in gratitude. After telling her it was okay and promising to protect her, the young girl stabbed Elluka in the back. After she collapsed, the mage looked and up to see Irina's crying face as she laughed at her before finally succumbing to her mortal wound.
After her death, Levia began impersonating the former priestess, urging Kiril to place Elluka's corpse in the forbidden ark Sin to attempt resurrecting her. Following the resulting explosion caused by Sin, the twin gods souls incarnated in Elluka's corpse. With the amnesic Levia becoming the new consciousness with the memories of her physical body, the reborn "Elluka Clockworker" continued to live on as a believed immortal, suffering from the guilt of losing her precious family and country for hundreds of years.
Having survived the Levianta Catastrophe, Irina blamed her future sister-in-law for her mortal injuries and destroyed dream, swearing vengeance on her false incarnation; the mage then continued to interfere with Elluka Clockworker's collection of the vessels of sin, only learning the truth about Elluka centuries later. When explaining her reasons for why Elluka Clockworker couldn't be the real Elluka to Levia, Irina cited that the Mage of Eternity's apparent old friendship with Held and inability to recognize Prim Marlon as a HER were obvious signs in retrospect.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Elluka was a kind-hearted but headstrong woman. Forgiving and loving, she was devoted to her beloved Kiril despite him originally being a HER, removing the man's symptoms and willing to marry him. This behavior extended to his younger sister Irina; Elluka became very protective of the child, promising to protect her from the secret murder of the candidates occurring behind the scenes.
Despite her kindness, Elluka's personality could cause trouble, as she was discharged from the temple in Lighwatch for delinquent behavior. Regardless, she was devoted to her work as a priestess and the removal of Hereditary Evil Raiser Syndrome from the populace. She also harbored a strong desire to become the Ma, willing to even kill the other candidates for the position.
Skills and AbilitiesEdit
- "Although she has the highest M factor of all the candidates this time, her other lower statistics are a cause for concern."

Elluka was a powerful sorceress, regarded with respect by her peers. Practicing her craft since an early age, she possessed a wide range of magical talent and was eventually accepted as a priestess at the temple. Among her powers was the ability to detect HERs and remove their genes of malice. Despite her amazing magical power, she was heavily lacking in other areas measured for candidacy in Project 'Ma'.
Kiril Clockworker: Elluka's beloved. Falling deeply in love with the craftsman after curing his condition, Elluka wished to join his family and eventually came to live with him. While being his fiancée, the ex-priestess also assisted Kiril in his work as a clockworker.
Irina Clockworker: Elluka's sister-in-law. As the sister of her loved one, Elluka cared deeply for Irina despite their later competition to become the next candidate for Project 'Ma' putting a strain on their relationship. As a result of her sister giving her the candidacy, however, the touched Elluka resolved to protect her sister-in-law.
Levia: Elluka's chosen deity. Although never meeting the god herself, Elluka worshiped her as a member of the Levia-Behemo temple. After Elluka's death, Levia received her body and residual memories, believing herself to be Elluka as a result.
Conceptualization and OriginEdit
- Elluka's name is partially inspired by the name of her representative Vocaloid, Luka, using "luka" at the end of the name.
- When surveyed for Project 'Ma', Elluka's rankings were M=253, O=62, T=92, H=28, E=53, and R=63.
- She shares the same birthday (January 30) with her Vocaloid.
- During the second verse of the Ma Survival PV, Elluka's portion is juxtaposed with the terms for Pride and Sloth in the Eight Evil Thoughts, which later evolved into the Seven Deadly Sins.
