Todd Fang (トッド・ファング) is a member of the Empire of Vollachia military. He's also a soldier from the Imperial Army regiment that captured Natsuki Subaru, Rem, and Louis at the start of Arc 7.

Debuting in Volume 26, Todd originally played a supporting role, aiding Subaru in his adventures inside of the Imperials Camp stationed outside of the Buddheim Jungle. However, in the following loop, Todd turned hostile and ever since, threatened, hunted and even killed Subaru on several occasions. Following Vincent and Subaru's successful infiltration and seizing of the fortified Imperial City of Guaral, Todd – together with Arakiya – fled the fort and his location currently remains unknown.

Appearance

Todd is a young man, with short bright orange hair and is noted to likely be a bit older than Subaru. As per all Imperial Soldiers, Todd can be seen sporting a primarily black and grey suit with red details such as different straps and belts. His head is adorned with a headband of the same colour pallet as the rest of his attire.

On his left side, Todd also strapped a small battle axe, which he uses instead of a typical sword.

Personality

Todd started off seemingly as a very friendly and open individual, who faithfully follows orders and is kind towards people around him. When Jamal tried to beat up Subaru and co., Todd was the first one to break up the fight and ask Jamal to cut them some slack. Later on, when Jamal managed to get Subaru and Louis alone and successfully beat them, Todd was once again the first one to come help Subaru out. He even went out of his way to show him around the Imperial camp, and tell share his views about different subjects with Subaru–all in all, Subaru considered Todd as an ally and a friend. He even provided Subaru with valuable information about the army, their purpose in the Buddheim Jungle, and the ways of the Empire.

However, it soon turned out that Todd is in fact a far more ruthless and sinister individual, who oftentimes manipulates others to get what he wants/needs, no matter from who. Despite his close relationship with Jamal, he can often be seen manipulating him. He is observant and meticulous, going as far as stabbing Subaru in the shoulder because he didn't like Subaru's gaze and correctly concluded Subaru was trying to deceive him. Even though he acted very kindly towards Subaru, the side story bundled with volume 27 revealed that Todd was in fact always suspicious of Subaru, from the very second the two met. That same side story also gives us a glimpse of what lengths Todd is prepared to go–in order to test out if the slaughtered Demon Beast is poisonous enough to kill someone, he mixed its poison with water and gave it to the other soldiers in the soldiers. After concluding the poison isn't strong enough to kill, he proceeded to dispatch his own troops in order to avoid repercussions. Days later, in the fortified Imperial City of Guaral, Todd once again showed his dark side, when he slaughtered innocents through various failed loops, just so he could catch Subaru off-guard and kill him. Accordingly, he let a dragon carriage loose on a busy street of the city, killing countless innocents as well as Subaru, and set a pub ablaze, once again killing countless innocents and finally Subaru as well. In the last failed loop, he even used Flop O'Connell as bait, to lure Subaru towards him, which gave him the chance to take off his arm and decapitate him.

Todd displays a rather warrior-like mentality regarding healing magic, stating he doesn't like it too much as it allows people to retreat from battles in order to be properly healed. In his opinion, healing magic exists so one could continue fighting, even after receiving grave injuries, which defeats the purpose of training and courage.

Abilities

Skilled Axeman: Todd, as opposed to most Imperial soldiers, is wielding a small battle axe. With it, he is able to swiftly dispatch foes with deadly accuracy and surprising amount of force. He was easily able to cave in Louann's head, during one of Subaru's failed loops, as well as slice Subaru's arm clean off, in the very next loop. Despite perhaps not appearing as menacing as some other soldiers, Todd is not to be underestimated. Coupled with his keen intellect, he is far more dangerous than an average soldier, and perhaps even Jamal, who is far stronger than him in terms of sheer skill and power.

Keen Intellect: The ability that makes Todd so dangerous, is unmistakeably his intellect. He is extremely attentive and calculative, always being two steps ahead of both his enemies and allies, which allows him to devise deadly traps and strategies to dispatch his foes without being forced to personally cross weapons with them. One should also mention his mentality as an Imperial soldier–depending on the target's threat, Todd isn't afraid of causing collateral damage. During one failed loop, he sent a rogue dragon carriage zooming down the streets, killing tens of innocents as well as Subaru. In the following loop, he set a pub ablaze, once again killing innocents, just so he could kill Subaru.

  • Keen Orientation: Todd has been mentioned to easily be able to memorise a place or building's layout and geography by simply being there once. With this skill, Todd is very proficient at infiltrating places he's already been to, and planning ambushes on his own soil.

Equipment

  • Battle Axe: Todd can usually be seen wielding a short battle axe and is stated to be very skilled with it, more-so than the average Imperial soldier.
  • Throwing knives: As demonstrated during the Demon Beast ambush, Todd is capable of quickly and accurately throwing knives, even when under heavy pressure.

Trivia

  • Todd was originally introduced only with his first name. With the 2nd volume of Arc 7, however, a side story was released which revealed his surname as well.
