Cebin`s burned Face

Cebin Mendel is commonly seen wearing a black smiling mask and, a white and purple Tyrolean hat, and like most of the other members of the X-Laws he is also constantly seen wearing his X-laws uniform. Unlike the other uniforms that have pure white sleeves, he instead wears the top part of the uniform as a vest, and has long dark blue sleeves with vertical black stripes and a white machete. His shoulder pad is shapped like a sunflower. He uses a pair of jet black mechanical gloves with guns attached to where the fingertips used to be, so they can be used as projectile weapons which act as Cebin's medium for Remiel.

According to Asakura Hao, he is quite "skinny". It is revealed that he was terribly burned and disfigured by Asakura Hao in the past, and that the main reason why he wears the mask, the hat and the gloves, is to hide the fact that there is not much skin left on his body left[1].


Because of his mask it is difficult to see what mood he is in, and what emotions he has. However he seems to remain calm and collected and like the other X-Laws members, Cebind is a believer in their justice and the the ideals of Jeanne. Unlike Marco Lasso, he can still see the shades of gray in the world and see Lyserg`s kindness as a great addition for the team. His hobby is singing in a chorus and reading.[2]

However when he came to face to face with Asakura Hao in the fourth fight of the Shaman Tournament, he finally showed his true colors. When Meene was quickly killed he acted as if nothing had happened and revealed his large personal grudge against Asakura Hao for disfiguring him ten years ago. It is revealed that he does not actually care about anyone anymore and is only in the Shaman Fights for his own personal revenge.

Abilities and PowersEdit


See More: Remiel

His guardian ghost is that of the Archangel Remiel, who's base vehicle is the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Coupe that. He is in charge of guiding souls into heaven and according to Cebin, is the archangel in charge of the souls being reincarnated. It has the power of thunder and attacks with electro shocks.[3] Like all other archangels, Remiel has the ability to shatter souls.



Born on September 18, 1971, Cebin comes from Salzburg, Austria where he eventually joined a military group, becoming a sniper in the unit known as the EKO Cobra Unit, helping the Austrian Federal Police.[4] Ten years prior to the current storyline he met with Asakura Hao, mistaking him and his followers as a terrorist organization and so decided to attack. Hao ended up killing everyone except for Cebin, but he lost both his arms andthe majority of his face and body was burned. He was between life and death when Marco Lasso and Iron Maiden Jeanne found him and saved him. This incident with Hao awakened his shamanic powers, so he decided to join the X-Laws to take revenge.[5]

Travel through AmericaEdit

He and the X-Laws were dropped somewhere in American. Not much is known about what he and his teammates did but he later showed up at the fight between Ryu and Boris. The X-Laws killed Boris and went straight to the Patch village. Cebin like all others gained a power increase from the Great Spirit.

Shaman Fights Second RoundEdit

The X-laws recruited Lyserg and waited the rest of the three months. He teamed up with Chris Venstar, and Meene Montgomery to form the X-III team. They were the first to face Asakura Hao and his team. Although all three of them attacked Hao at the same, Hao targeted them one by one and Meene was the first to go by having her spirit sliced in two and then being impaled by one of the Spirit of Fire's fingers.

Cebin stepped up and revealed himself, his reason for entering, and his face. He fought with everything he had but was killed by the Spirit of Fire, who crushed not only his Archangel, but also Cebin, burning him to cinders and killing him.

Venstar blew up his special grenade up but it didn't work and he was killed. The souls of Team "X-III" were then all devoured by the Spirit of Fire.[6]

Invading the PlantsEdit

When Hao created a Black Hole within the Great Spirit, the X-Laws appeared in their 'Supercars' to protect the Soul Train.[7]

Anime/Manga DifferenceEdit

In the anime, he lives a lot longer until the end of the series where he dies being crushed by his own O.S. while all the X-Laws were fighting against Hao, while in manga, he is killed by Hao and Spirit of Fire ate his soul.

In anime he doesn't have hair (or his hair is very short, sometimes, though this may be a wig). In the manga, has dark, spiked hair hidden under this hat. Cebin Mendel does also appeared in casual clothes several times, without the hat. His disfigured face is never shown in the anime.
