Maitora (マイトラ, Maitora)[1] is the 13th disciple of the Noah Family who represents the "Ability" (能, ) of Noah. They are in charge of handling the Noah's technology and was the one who created Noah's Ark and the Skulls.[2] The name of their current reincarnation is unknown.


Even more so than the Earl, Maitora's appearance is unusual for a Noah. They are only seen briefly, wearing an odd, striped, full-body suit with three tassels on the head; one on the crown and one on each side of where their face would be. They have an unimpressive stature, and often are seen in the background when the Noah family is together. It is unknown what they look like or what age-range they can be classified in due to their face being covered and hidden. 


Maitora has yet to be seen speaking but according to the author, Maitora is a very inconspicuous Noah—they take care of everything behind the scenes.[2]

Previous Incarnations[]

Original Maitora[]

Following the defeat of the Earl of Millennium against the Heart wielder, Maitora and the eleven other Noah took refuge in the Noah's Ark to escape the great flood. Maitora begot at least one child, thus becoming one of the ancestors of Mankind.

Previous Mightra[]

The previous incarnation of Maitora was killed by The 14th like the other Noah except Road Kamelot and the Earl.


The Rewinding Town Arc[]

Maitora is presumably present among the shadowed silhouettes at the family meal.[3]

Third Exorcists Arc[]

Maitora is only briefly seen sitting cross-legged at Wisely's awakening with their hands clasped.[4]


Natural abilities as a Noah: As a Noah, Maitora has absolute command over all the Akuma, as well as the ability to destroy Innocence by simply touching it. All of their abilities, like other Noah, are based on Dark Matter. As a Noah, they are immune to the Akuma blood virus, which is normally fatal to humans.

Ability: True to their "representation", Maitora is a sort of creator, being the one who made the technology that works Noah's Ark as well as being the creator of the spell that makes the Skulls.[2]

Magic: Going hand in hand with their ability, Maitora can use Magic.

Known Spells:

  • オン (On). Abata Ura Masarakato, System Conversion, Arise (起): Spell used to turn humans into Skulls.[5] Maitora is said to have created this spell.[6]


  • Maitora's hobby is taking care of mice.[7]
  • They like darkness.[7]
  • They dislike meals.[7]
  • Their mask is essential to them.[7]
  • Maitora did not appear during the Noah's Ark Arc because true to their role, they worked behind the scenes.[2]
  • Their name probably comes from "might".
