- "The Master of the Hellish Yard is my sister, Levia."
Levia Barisol was one of the four gods in the Evillious universe. After opposing the sun god's decision for their third paradise, she was sealed inside Sin and plotted to destroy the Third Period along with her alleged brother, Behemo. She became worshiped as one of the gods of the Levin religion. Once they escaped from the ark centuries later, Levia and Behemo incarnated in the corpse of Elluka Chirclatia.
- "At the end of their quarrel, the god of the sun transformed the twin gods who did not obey him into a twin-headed dragon. Banished from their position as gods, the wrathful dragon, along with the six kin, tried to destroy the third paradise they had created."
- ―Excerpt from the Levin Bible Old Testament, Book 1, Genesis[src]
Levia Barisol was born in the Second Period, Earth, as the product of an affair between Rahab Barisol and one of her many lovers. At the age of six, she attended a university to study the mind, eventually graduating to become a psychiatrist at Held Yggdra's clinic and research institute, studying abnormal behavior and Hereditary Evil Raiser Syndrome in particular. During her studies, the young researcher learned that "malice" wasn't originally from their world. Additionally, at some point Rahab instructed Levia in the Mind Type of the Swap Technique developed by Held.
As the Second Period became to fall due to the rampant spread of HER Syndrome, Levia was one of several scientists selected to board the Climb One, one of several ships meant to find inhabitable planets for repopulation. Suffering murderous impulses from malice, Levia consulted with a physicist, a living mask Seth Twiright, on how to cure herself. With his suggestion to kill her other self from an alternate reality, Levia prepared to kill a male version of herself, Behemo Barisol. She then realized that her colleague was trying to get her to succumb to malice by committing murder, in order to take her place on the Climb One.
Levia instead rescued Behemo from his universe and the two became coworkers at Held's facility. Later, she and Behemo escaped the world's destruction on the Climb One with 70 other scientists. During the trip, Levia designed a "Type L" variant of Black Box that could move one's spirit data into another body, albeit only with the consensus of all the members of the ship. As they lost contact with all their fellow spaceships, the crew of the Climb One realized they were the last inhabitants of Earth and decided to create a new species in the image of earthlings, Levia in charge of creating its souls.
After finding a new planet to inhabit, they set about constructing the new world and species. During this Seth, who had secretly boarded the Climb One, instigated the deaths of 62 of the crew members and contaminated the new species to have a possibility of developing HER Syndrome. Levia preserved the spirit data of the dead crew members and the grieving Held arranged for them to be reincarnated as forest spirits in the new world. The remaining crew, including Levia, proposed they reincarnate as gods into the world to guide the humans, unaware that they themselves were HERs.
Levia furthermore designed the Hellish Yard as a means to sort between HERs and good souls. When Held and another crewmember, Hazuki, disagreed with the plan, Levia joined the others in trying to kill them to regain crew consensus and allow them to use the Black Box Type L. This caused the Climb One to crash and kill everyone on board, leaving only their spirit data behind; although Levia and Behemo planned to escape by transferring their spirits into the body of a dragon on the ship, Held and Hazuki had sabotaged the plan beforehand.
Levia and her colleagues remained trapped in the Climb One for some time while the new species of humans began building their societies. Around this time, they forgot the existence of one of their colleagues who had become the moon goddess. Eventually, the humans of Levianta discovered the Climb One Levia and Behemo began whispering to Alice Merry-Go-Round, establishing her as a prophet and themselves as gods, with a lofty account of the Third Period's creation. The two became worshiped in the new Levin faith and a temple was built around the Climb One, renamed the "Sin" ark.
- "Hey darling, can you hear this voice? Hey darling, if you can hear this voice, throw my remains in that ark in the temple and resurrect me."
- ―Levia impersonating "Elluka Chirclatia" to Kiril Clockworker[src]
While establishing themselves as deities, the earthlings came in contact with Seth Twiright, who had had reincarnated as a human and later become a scientist in the new Magic Kingdom Levianta; having succumbed to her HER Syndrome, Levia and the others plotted with him to destroy the Third Period. As Seth refused to move them into new bodies, Levia and Behemo also plotted to make proper bodies for themselves, planning to make them with earthling DNA so that they could use Black Box Type L and move them out of the Sin.
In BT 005 the two "gods", acting as Alice's parents, told her that they would destroy the world if their worshipers didn't cleanse the ark Sin by creating human vessels for them. Prophet Merry-Go-Round shared the twin gods' lies with the nation and started Project 'Ma' to create suitable twin vessels for them to inhabit; its second project finally produced the twins Hänsel and Gretel on December 27, EC 0, only for the mother Meta Salmhofer to flee with the twins shortly after. As Project 'Ma' faced continual failure over the years, Levia and Behemo grew impatient.
After Kiril Clockworker witnessed his sister Irina murder his fiancée Elluka Chirclatia in EC 013, the twin gods decided to entice the man to free them from Sin in their dragon body, unwilling to wait for their bodies to grow up and knowing that, as a clone of Seth's human form, Kiril could use Black Box Type L. Impersonating Elluka, Levia enticed Kiril to take Elluka's corpse to Black Box within the Sin under the pretense of resurrecting her.
After Kiril used the Clockwork Secret Art to restore the aged device, he used the black box. Before Levia and Behemo could transfer into the dragon body, however, the mindless beast grew violent and destroyed the ark, and the black box transferred Levia and Behemo into Elluka's corpse instead before it exploded from misuse.
Mage of EternityEdit
Main Article: Elluka Clockworker
- "The sorceress. Those days when she was still "Elluka Clockworker" in the true meaning of the name."
- ―Ma regarding Levia and Behemo's reincarnation[src]
Once incarnated into Elluka Chirclatia's corpse, Levia became the active consciousness while Behemo slumbered in the subconscious. Believing herself to be the real Elluka, the reincarnated Levia awoke to the destroyed Levianta and became consumed with grief. "Elluka Clockworker" met with Held a few years later and was tasked with collecting the vessels of sin, accepting the quest to pass her "newfound" immortality.
Over the centuries, Elluka traveled across Evillious, helping anyone in need that she came across and getting involved with the Venomania Event, the Disappearance of Evil Food Eater Conchita, the Lucifenian Expansion War, and Riliane's evil reign. During the latter period, she incarnated Held's forest spirits Michaela and Gumillia as humans, training the latter as her apprentice.
Elluka and Gumillia continued the search for the vessels of sin across the continent while pursuing Irina who was also seeking the vessels. After Elluka confronted Eve Moonlit and forced the witch's spirit into her own, her memories as Levia reawakened. In denial of her true nature, Elluka continued pursuing the red cat mage Irina Clockworker and eventually dueled her at Merrigod Plateau on January 30, EC 611. After Irina activated her Black Box Type S during the duel, Levia was transported into her own inner psychological world and was forced to confront the reality of her true identity.
- "Now, how about we resume our duel! Levia, and—you along with her! Behemo!"
- ―Irina Clockworker[src]
Manifesting in her original form, Levia ascended the stairs of the illusory Leviantan temple before her and found at the top Irina, Gumillia, Behemo, and Eve in their original forms before the ark Sin. Unable to deny her true identity any longer, Levia lowered her head in silence while Irina directed Gumillia to her. After confirming to Gumillia that she had regained all of her memories, Levia moved towards the Sin and learned from Irina how they were only in her own inner psychological world due to the device built by Seth.
After musing on this, Levia questioned Irina and learned how the mage had figured out she wasn't the real Elluka, owing it to several factors over the years. She and Irina fell to discussing how Held had known her true identity immediately and sought to keep her from finding out; realizing Gumillia had been made her "apprentice" to monitor her, Levia confirmed this with Gumillia herself and learned how her true purpose was to help seal Levia and Behemo away again.
After comforting Gumillia, who burst into tears to admit the truth, Levia questioned her further and learned the trick Held undertook to prevent Gumillia and Michaela from losing their memories with their reincarnation. Levia then returned to Irina, who brought up more reasons why it would have been impossible for Levia to have been the real Elluka, including knowing the Swap Technique, and finally admitted that Seth had told her after he became the Demon of Wrath. Levia then watched as Irina revealed how she had experimented with Eve inside the Clockworker's Doll, giving Eve the ability to summon them all to the Court.
After they were all summoned to the "Court", a realm of judgment that equalized everyone and made it possible to kill gods, Irina challenged Levia and Behemo to continue their duel. Levia soon after had to, embarrassed, introduce the crossdressing Behemo to Gumillia. When Irina eventually prepared to resume the fighting, the five of them were interrupted by the Demon of Gluttony. The duel then began; as Irina, Levia, and the demon's magic all clashed, the resulting blast caused Levia, Irina, and Eve's souls to fuse together into one.
Main Article: Ma
The resulting amalgamation between Levia, Irina, and Eve became Ma; like Elluka Clockworker before her, Ma traveled through Evillious helping people and becoming involved in many historical events, including the Enbizaka Murderer Scandal perpetrated by Kayo Sudou. Later in her life, Ma decided to become "pure" to avoid the destruction of the world. As part of this, she began absorbing the demons of sin using the Swap Technique, as well as purging herself of her other consciousnesses. When Ma had an affair with Gallerian Marlon and conceived a daughter, Nemesis, she used the baby as a receptacle for Levia's soul.
Main Article: Nemesis Sudou
Inside Nemesis' body, Levia lost all of her memories as per the rules of reincarnation. Growing up abandoned by her mother, Nemesis contracted with Seth Twiright in the form of her pet Ziz tiama, Ziz-san, and thus became a contractor of Wrath. Over time, Nemesis took up a life of crime in a gang called "Zeus", until she was eventually arrested and became an assassin for PN. When she was assigned to kill her lover, Nyoze Octo, Nemesis went down a path that led to her becoming the dictator of Elphegort. In EC 998, Führer Nemesis used the weapon Punishment to destroy the world; although she survived the blast, Levia's spirit was expelled from her body.
The World's EndEdit
As the destroyed world merged with the Hellish Yard, the disembodied Levia shut off from reality and deluded herself into believing that she was still a psychiatrist working in the collapsing Second Period, constructing around herself an illusion of Held Yggdra's old research clinic.

Once Allen activated the "Irregular system" in the black box, Levia regained all of her memories of the Third Period; as a result, she returned to her body and her consciousness as Nemesis Sudou was restored.
Levia continued to be worshiped in the Levin faith, a cult faction believing that the Magic Kingdom was destroyed because the Leviantans turned away from their teachings after they were supposedly saved when Meta Salmhofer birthed the incarnated twin gods.

Skills and AbilitiesEdit
- "I won't be killed so easily either."
Levia was knowledgeable in the creation and study of the mind, having formulated the method of creating human minds and understanding the mechanisms behind Seth's Black Box Type S. Being a god, Levia was an ageless immortal and automatically reincarnated after death. Despite this, she was still subject to the rules of the Third Period set by the sun god; regardless, the god was free to move between worlds without any hazard. Following her incarnation as Elluka Clockworker, Levia possessed the memories and knowledge of Elluka Chirclatia and later Eve Moonlit.
Levia also possessed great magical power, becoming an expert with the reincarnation arts. She could also use the powerful Swap Technique, allowing her move her to transfer her or another soul into another body or object. After being transformed into a dragon, the god was capable of great destruction, though forced to share her physical body with her brother. She could also communicate with a select few humans while sealed inside Sin; she could also change her voice to impersonate another person. Aside from this, Levia possessed knowledge about the workings of the gods' technology and was able to operate it.
Behemo: Levia's parallel world self. Levia came to hate Behemo over time and was otherwise opposed to his embarrassing crossdressing habits, considering him a "weirdo." Despite this, she was willing to work with her "brother" over the course of her rebellion against the sun god, but continued to consider him an embarrassment after they were both freed from Elluka.
Sun God: A fellow god. Levia worked with the sun god reasonably well and was friends with the Master of the Heavenly Yard since at least the Second Period. Despite this, she disagreed with his directive to give the ground world to the humans and so rebelled against him. Levia's grudge against him and the ground world he'd created only grew after being punished and sealed by the sun god.
Held Yggdra: A fellow god. Levia worked with Held reasonably well and was friends with him from at least the Second Period. Despite her resentment over Held's alliance with the sun god who imprisoned her, Levia's memories of her friendship with Held were strong enough that she recalled them as Elluka, although still irritated with his behavior at times.
Elluka Chirclatia: A woman Levia impersonated. Levia had no compunction with pretending to be Elluka in order to gain her freedom. Following her incarnation into Elluka's body, Levia believed she was her and clung strongly to her new identity, in denial of the truth for months after learning it.
Gumillia: An acquaintance of Levia's. Initially knowing her as one of the god kin, Levia got much closer to Gumillia over her time as "Elluka Clockworker" and considered her a dear friend. As a result, even after gaining her memories back Levia didn't hold anything against the girl for her true role in their relationship, understanding how hard it was for Gumillia.
Conceptualization and OriginEdit
- Levia's name is derived from the Leviathan, a female sea monster in Judeo-Christian mythology; it, along with the Behemoth, is believed to have been slaughtered by God to serve as a banquet for the righteous souls in heaven.
- Levia's mother Rahab is also inspired by the Leviathan, representing the sin of Envy of the Seven Deadly Sins; in Biblical passages, the name Rahab was used to refer specifically to the Leviathan.
