Froi Tiedoll (フロワ・ティエドール, Furowa Tiedōru)is a General Exorcist of the European Branch of the Black Order. He is the leader of Tiedoll Unit and the master of Yu Kanda, Noise Marie, Daisya Barry and Chaozii Han.


Tiedoll is a scruffy man with fluffy hair of a greying-light brown hue (grey in 2006 anime)— making him appear older than he actually is— which he keeps tied in the back. He wears glasses and is typically seen with a canvas hanging from his neck by a string. When traveling, he tends to wear tattered cloaks over his uniform, which is often dirty and in poor repair. He also has a mustache and an unkempt beard. Physically, Tiedoll has a rather lean and muscular build for a man of his age.


Tiedoll seems to be a very normal man behind his glasses, with artistic talents and a sensible side. He is very loyal to his work, and he refuses the order to go back to the Black Order's HQ.[1] Like his fellow general, Yeegar, Tiedoll is more of a teacher than a fighter. He dedicates himself to finding new Exorcists and looks forward to taking on new apprentices. He is kind, as he cried when one of his apprentices, Daisya Barry, was killed in action, wishing him to rest in peace.[2] He also treats his apprentices--Yu Kanda, Noise Marie, and Daisya Barry—as his own children.Chaoji, Tiedoll's newest apprentice, states that, at one point, Tiedoll seemed kind of strange but kind of cool as well and that he looked forward to being his student. He is also apparently very keen on taking on new apprentices, insisting he take on Timothy even though its already been decided Klaud Nine was to do it.[3] He often stops, even when on important missions, to sketch the nearby scenery. Being an artist, he appreciates the small things in life and the world's natural hidden beauty. Tiedoll is a pious man, believing that God will provide them with new apostles to save the world.

He is very upset by the news and he tearfully pays a tribute to Daisya by sketching Daisya's hometown and burning the drawing.

location to assist them. He is reunited with Marie and he informs Tiedoll that he can hear the members of Cross' unit out in the fray, and when Tiedoll gives Marie and Kanda the order to assist them, Marie takes off in a flash. Tiedoll assists in destroying the giant Level 3 Akuma's and later is shocked to see Lenalee's Innocence protect her and shouts to Lavi and Kanda that the Noah are after Lenalee and orders them to protect her while she's incapacitated.

Following the disappearance of the Noah after Allen Walker arrival, Tiedoll and the others gather under a bridge to discuss there next coarse of action. He informs everyone that he, the other three Generals and the current Exorcists present are the only Exorcists left alive to fight. He expresses his distrust of Cross stating he's the kind of man to use others as puppets (which Allen notes that his master is not well liked). As Lenalee wakes up, she is taken by force by Lero and into the old Ark which Allen, Kanda, Lavi, Krory and Chaoji follow after despite Tiedoll's hesitance.

Noah's Ark arcEdit

With Tiedoll left alone with Miranda, Marie and Bookman as the only fighters left, they prepare to fight the oncoming giant Level 3 Akuma's arriving. Before fighting, the Innocence shard Tiedoll has of what was left of his pupil Barry starts glowing and reacts to a new wielder of the shard and Tiedoll tells it to go.

While having fought off and killed most the Akuma, they stop as Marie points out the Ark is playing a music, which is the Earl having finished the download to the new Ark. After the Ark disappears completely Tiedoll starts to call out to Marie, but Marie answers before he can finish that he can't hear anything and mourns the loss of Kanda.


The shard of Innocence leaves Tiedoll for Chaozii

Allen, though, manages to stop the download and restore everyone, and when they come out of the Ark to join Tiedoll's team, Marie joins the others in welcoming them back as Tiedoll cries greatly as his pupil is alive and well. Kanda brushes this off and shows him Chaoji, the person who gained the Innocence shard to become an Exorcist, Tiedoll becomes even more emotional at the fact he now has another new pupil, much to Chaoji's bashfulness and Kanda's annoyance.

After returning to the Order, when Kanda attempts to head back to his room to sleep in his bed and is stopped by Tiedoll, who just says he wishes to see his "beloved child" get better prompting Kanda to say he's not his kid. Marie tells Kanda to just accept the fact that Tiedoll won't let him leave.

Invasion of the Black Order arcEdit

Tiedoll eventually returns to the Black Order's Headquarters to attend a meeting with the other generals and Lvelie.


Tiedoll deploys his defense

When Lulu Bell attacks the headquarters he bursts into the room through the ark with the other generals to help Allen and Bookman.[6] He then uses his innocence to deploy a huge forest barrier to protect the wounded scientists while the other generals mount an attack.[7] When the level 4 is born, and starts to attack the headquarters, Tiedoll is stunned by his Akuma scream with everyone. The level 4 flies just next to Tiedoll and punches the ground which destroy the floor. Tiedoll disappears in the breach.

After the level 4 is destroyed, Tiedoll is revealed to be alive and to have protected a lot of Black Order members.

Destruction of the Black Order arcEdit

Link bitten

When the decision is made to move the European Branch to a new location, Tiedoll, along with his fellow General's (except Cross) are infected by a virus and has become a "zombie". However, Tiedoll is in a bath towel having tried to take a shower as were the other General's and ends up biting Howard Link from behind having mistook him for Kanda due to his glasses having become foggy. After Bak Chang makes a vaccine, he and everyone else is cured.

When the staff moves to the new headquarters in England, Tiedoll is charged with carrying Hevlaska. With her reduced to only a dice-size cube, Tiedoll carefully transports her to her new home. [8]

Searching for A.W. arcEdit


Tiedoll found Kanda

Following Kanda's search with Johnny to find Allen Walker, Tiedoll greets Kanda after reuniting with him after his near death at the hands of Alma Karma and gives him back his Mugen. He reveals Marie and Lenalee will likely face charges for letting Kanda go to find Allen stating Kanda lost the trust of Central after he fled with Alma Karma. As Kanda's tattoo starts to act up and counter Apocryphos's brainwashing, Tiedoll tries to help him. He then is informed by the Finders that Allen has been located, but Kanda suddenly grabs him angrily, prompting the General to laugh hysterically, much to Kanda's shock, who tells his pupil that he hasn't changed and welcomes Kanda back, admitting his relief he's alive. He informs Kanda he's on a mission to capture him, but really is to make sure his "cute little apprentice" is protected.

Kanda then pleads with the General to let him take care of Allen, saying that he will definitively kill him once he turns into the 14th. General Tiedoll explains that Kanda has already lost the trust of Central for running off with Alma Karma and that this has only made his situation worse. Tiedoll then tells Kanda that he will only allow Kanda to go after Allen if he proves his loyalty and strength to the Order by becoming a General, revealing that Kanda has actually already achieved the Critical Point a long time beforehand, but had kept it hidden because he did not want to go further into the organization that he hated so much. As Kanda accepts the position, Tiedoll smiles proudly.[9]

Shortly thereafter, Froi and Yu leave the lane and find Allen Walker, Johnny Gill and Tyki Mikk. While Tyki is seemingly about to attack the two, Tiedoll creates an art of Kanda with his innocence. The fake Kanda rushes at Tyki from the side. However Tyki catches the fake Mugen with his hand. Some vine spawn from the blade and wrap around Tyki's arm, eventually tangling around his whole chest.

nda starts to shine and releases a bevy of doves before blowing up just in front of Tyki. Taking advantage of the explosion, Froi creates a carriage trapping Johnny and Allen and two horses hiked to it. Tiedoll takes the reins and Kanda sit next to him. He starts off the horses and they are quickly away from the Noah. After some time, Tiedoll stops the coach and Kanda opens the curtains for the detainees. Tiedoll asks the wanted man if he enjoyed the ride. [10]
Tiedoll waves

Froi waves

Allen and Johnny realize the presence of the general as the latter waves at them. Allen is not pleased by the situation and even threatens to kick Tiedoll's ass in order to get out of the "carriage prison". Tiedoll coughs while hearing that. He then quietly listens to Kanda and Allen's argument but after observing that it leads nowhere he decides to give Kanda a piece of advice. He tells him that he needs to tell Allen the truth even if it means cornering him. Tiedoll then hands to Kanda a jar containing the remains of Timcanpy.[11]

After Kanda showed Allen the jar, Tiedoll leaves the three men alone and returns to drive his coach. Before leaving the city, he is met by the finders who came with him. Thanks to Kanda acting as if he is the enraged prisoner of Tiedoll, they are able to bypass the canvassing made the Finders on the whole city. Then Tiedoll drives his horses through the countryside.  

Tiedoll drives

Tiedoll is joined by Johnny

Tiedoll is soon joined by Johnny with the jar in his hands. They engage conversation. Johnny comments on the beauty of the sky and Tiedoll notes that the science section members are always cooped underground and that they should go out and see the beauty of this world more often and remain in connection with it so as not to lose sight of their purpose. Noticing the jar, Tiedoll accurately points that Johnny can't bear to leave Timcanpy in such state next to Allen. Johnny goes on in a long answer and at some point stops talking to think, this leaves Tiedoll undistracted and prompts him to yawn. Froi interrupts Johnny's train of thoughts to ask him to keep talking otherwise he might fall into slumber. [12]

Tiedoll beholden

Tiedoll's gratitude

Therefore Johnny asks why Tiedoll is helping them. The general confesses that he first intented to turn them over to the Order but Lenalee and his disciples were so in on this that he can't help but doting them. He adds that he's extremely interested by the so called human-shaped innocence, He wishes Allen would tell them what he knows. Finally he confesses that he is beholden to Allen for trying so hard to save Kanda and Alma Karma in the North American Branch but he commands Johnny to keep this for himself. Soon afterwards they both are startled by Kanda's shout from inside the wagon . Johnny opens the curtain and finds that both men vanished.[12] Tiedoll notes that Allen must be in desperate to have run away with the ark. Johnny is shocked by the handcuff and Tiedoll asks if he's alright and what happened with the bracelet breaking away. [13] 

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Painting and Drawing: Froi Tiedoll is a plastic artist. He was shown doing figurative art both through painting and through sketching with good ease. This skill is also a requirement for the use of his innocence.

Coachman driving: He can drive horse-drawn vehicles. He appears to have experience with it as he could drive a coach at very high speed in a city with ease.[14]



Tiedoll activating Maker of Eden

Maker of Eden (楽園ノ彫刻 (メーカー・オブ・エデン), Mēkā obu eden): Tiedoll's Innocence is called the "Maker of Eden". It is an equipment type Innocence that takes the appearance of two objects. One is a cross and the other is a scepter-like rod. It has 2 attacks,one defensive and one offensive. Before he uses any of his attacks he proclaims "Witness the beauty of this world".[15]

  • Art (アート[16] Āto): Tiedoll draws the cross and rod, in which the rod creates a spiritual chisel, and then links the rod and the cross together. He then uses the cross to knock the chisel into the ground, creating a cloud of dust that spawns his creation.
    • Giants: A massive white creature which looks like a tall lanky giant humanoid. It resembles a white version of the Giant Akumas that attacked the Exorcists in Edo. During his battle against the same Akuma, he reveals that he can create more than one giant.[17] It was shown earlier that he can also summon only one particular limb (such as an arm or fist) of the giant if he so wills it. It is likely this ability can create other things apart from giants such as the art of Kanda he made to take a photo with Kanda when the real one refused.
    • Art of Kanda: A full scale replica of exorcist Yu Kanda. It can be used to replace Kanda in photos when the real one refuses. It is also quite capable in combat and wields a fake mugen. Powerful enough to force a Noah to defend himself. It can also grow vine to restrain the ennemy and blow up to create a huge explosion. [10]
    • Carriage: A carriage made from wooden-like innocence and pulled by white horses. The curtains are very robust, even more than jail cell bars. The horses seem very fast, able to outdistance Noahs. [18]
Tiedoll using Rose Garden

Embracing Garden

  • Embracing Garden (抱擁ノ庭[19] Hōyō no niwa): Is his Defensive technique. So far it has only been used once during the battle against Lulu Bell when she attacks Headquarters.[20] It creates a barrier controlled by his will that takes the form of a thick white forest that covers those who it protects in a veil of roses and thorns. This is described as the strongest defensive ability of any Innocence and lives up to its name after it survives a direct attack from a Level 4 Akuma. It seems depending on the size and the duration of which the technique is held drains Tiedoll's power immensely.
