Eliza Faust (エリザ・ファウスト, Eriza Fausuto) is the guardian ghost of Johann Faust VIII. She married Faust when she was alive, but was later tragically murdered. She is voiced by Yuka Komatsu in Japanese, and Lisa Ortiz in English.


Eliza was born June 29, 1963 and was from Germany. Ever since childhood, Eliza had been sick with a fatal disease. As the only woman to care for Faust VIII, he, in return, slaved over his studies to find a cure for her and succeeded. After her recovery, they were married and opened a clinic together. They lived together happily until one day, when Faust was away, a burglar broke into their mansion's clinic. The burglar shot Eliza point blank in the head and Faust returned home too late to save her.

Faust was driven insane by his beloved wife's death and turned to necromancy to revive her. For the Shaman Fight, he took her skeleton remains from her grave to use as a medium and in hopes of bringing Eliza back to life. However, Faust's powers only allow him to conjure an image of Eliza rather than her actual spirit. To recruit Faust onto Yoh's team, Anna summons Eliza's spirit back, allowing Faust to communicate and see Eliza more often. He later becomes strong enough to call upon her any time he wishes.

Eliza was educated as a nurse and worked with her husband Faust at the clinic in their mansion. According to Faust himself, she was a little bit clumsy with the syringes, injecting the same spot several times until she hit the mark.

Oversouls and AttacksEdit

O.S. Dear ElizaEdit

O.S. Dea Eliza

O.S. "Dear Eliza"

O.S. "Dear Eliza" (O.S.愛しのエリザ)

Description: The principal O.S. of the necromancer, Faust VIII. His necromantic Oversoul is the product of years of study from the grimoire left behind by his great ancestor, Johann Georg Faust I. With the magic acquired from its contents, Faust is able to vividly recreate the semblance of life in the corpse of his deceased wife Eliza, and reanimated her body by integrating her ghost with her skeleton and fleshing them out with Furyoku. However, necromancy can only reanimated corpses, and will not work if the ghost has any will-power remaining. To that extent, "Dear Eliza" is nothing more than a doll, with no will of her own. aside from Faust. although not very strong, "Dear Eliza" is fortified with pure Furyoku and wields a huge hand-made staff affixed with a giant razor blade with the over soul extended over it, making her particularly lethal at close to mid-range combat.

On an weird yet interesting note, as a result of the battle between Faust and Yoh, Faust replaced one of Eliza's broken leg bones with his very own legs.

O.S. Mephisto EEdit

Mephisto E.

O.S. "Mephisto E"

Description: After being recruited into Team "Funbari Onsen", Faust began training under Anna with the Chō-Senjiryakketsu. After mastering its contents, Faust's necromancy were improved considerably allowing him and Anna to truly return Eliza's spirit.

Faust makes this O.S. by integrating Eliza's ghost with her skeleton remains and tools from his doctor's kit, creating a menacing and demonic giant O.S. nurse--a homage of the original Mephistopheles and his deceased lover, Eliza--complete with demonic wings and over-sized surgical tools for fingers. Her equipment are scalpels, scissors and sonds on her right arm and fingers, and an oversize syringe on her left arm, equipped with a ammunition belt. According to Faust, the 206 bones is picked with the utmost quality, to make over souling easier, and have a skin of protection formed with Furyoku of love. Of all the bones used, only the skull is Eliza's own original

As a gigantic Oversoul, Mephisto E wields monstrous strength, and everyone shivers in fear when they see this demonic beauty.

O.S. Eliza OperierenEdit

O.S. Eliza

O.S. "Eliza Operieren"

O.S. "Eliza Operieren" (O.S.エリザ・オペリーレン)

  • Shaman: Johann Faust VIII
  • O.S. Type: Spirit/Armor Type
  • Spirit Ally: Eliza Faust
  • Medium used: Skeleton remains of Eliza Faust & various medical tools

Description: Faust creates this O.S. in order to compete against Team "The Ren". With a few pointers from Sati, Faust finally achieves the "true" power of resurrection through this O.S. While essentially an Armor-type O.S., Eliza Operieren is operated by the ghost O.S. of Eliza herself, making this Armor-type rendition similar like Faust's original "Dear Eliza". The O.S. consists of Eliza in her nurses outfit with surgical theater equipment attached to her back. Towards the end of the manga Faust begins to "wear" Eliza and the armor protrudes from his back instead.


  • Chō-Senjiryakketsu - Jugon Zonshi(1000 year old secret art - Forbidden incantation for preserving thoughts): After being unable to defeat death many times, Faust can finally, with this oversoul, create a technique that can revive even the dead, as long as their bodies are not too damaged. With this technique he can also remove any damage and fatigue and even regrow limbs, although the latter is a slow and painful process.[1]

Anime/Manga DifferenceEdit

In the anime series she was able to talk to say many things than before in the manga series. Also she is constantly oversouled as her O.S. "Dear Eliza" and would be seen doing many things with her husband Faust while feeding him.

In the 4Kids dub, there's a strange refusal to refer to Eliza as Faust's wife, calling her his girlfriend or lover instead.


  • Ever since becoming Faust's Guardian Ghost has Eliza only spoken once, when they were to fight Team Icemen, and said "Faust I will go anywhere with you"
  • In the anime, the O.S. "Mephisto E" is referred to as a Giant Over Soul.
  • Operieren is German for "to operate"(medical)
