Goldva, Chief of the Patch Tribe (ゴルドバ, Gorudoba) is a fictional character in the manga and anime series of Shaman King. She is the Chief of the Patch Tribe.

Appearance

Goldva is a small stubby old woman dressed in the common Native American Chief robes and is commonly seen smoking a pipe. She has long gray hair and, in the manga, has a crooked, witch-like nose.

Personality

Like most of the Patch Tribe Goldva has strong faith in the Great Spirit and will do anything it says without questioning it. She is commonly heard saying that everything is the will of the Great Spirit. Unlike most of the Patch Priests, who take interest in their charges or become a follower of Asakura Hao, Goldva remains neutral during the entire tournament, until Hao is declared the Shaman King and it becomes her duty to protect him, even if it means killing someone.

In the anime she is also greatly interested in the successful profit made by the Path vendors during the Second Round of the Shaman Fight.

Abilities and Powers

Spirit

See More: Big Chief

Like most of the Patch Tribe, Goldva has a totem bird spirit called Big Chief(ビッグチーフ) that uses Goldva's pipe as a medium for the Over Soul. Big Chief is the spirit of a former Chief of the Patch Tribe, and is most likely a kami-class spirit. The Big Chief is based upon the Native American totem birds, the raven and the Thunderbird.

History

Shaman Fight Second Round

Invading the Plants

When Redseb Munzer and Seyram Munzer attempt to assassinate Hao, she arrives with her O.S. and proceeds to smash the Golem.[1]

After the invaders fight and defeat Rutherfor and her Grey Saucer O.S., the wall of the plant explodes, revealing Big Chief and Goldva. Goldva states that Lip and Rap are dead and that Hao killed them and absorbed their souls, laughing insanely as it happens. As she steps through with Big Chief, they both are destroyed and their souls consumed by Hao.[2]

Anime/Manga Difference

Trivia

  • Like most of the Patch Priests, her name is derived from an element of the periodic table, her name coming from "Gold".
  • In the both the anime and the manga it is a common misunderstanding that Goldva is male when she is in fact female.
