Glenn Radars (グレン=レーダス, Guren Rēdasu) is the protagonist of the Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor series. He becomes the substitute teacher in Sistine Fibel's class, after the retiring of her favorite teacher. He was once a famous assassin and was the one who saved Rumia Tingel prior to the series. He was once known as 'The Fool' said to be an amazing magician killer working for the Imperial Court Mage Corps, and is the current holder of "The Fool" card.

Appearance Edit

Glenn is a slightly muscular young man with average height and weight. He has long black hair that is tied back into a low ponytail with a red hair tie, with a messy fringe that covers his forehead.

Generally, he wears a white half-sleeved shirt with a red tie tied loosely, black pants with gold trim at the seems, accompanied with matching black dress shoes and white gloves.

Personality Edit

He is lazy and constantly bored by everything, with his primary focus being sleeping. Despite this, Glenn has aspired to be a mage of justice. It is shown when trying to rescue Rumia from Huey's magic circles that he is willing to use up all of his magic and put himself in harm's way in order to save her. On top of this, Glenn happens to be a bit of a strategist, showing his skills in monologues in order to help him gain the upper hand in combat. He's a rather determined soul who refuses to give up when his sense of justice kicks in and will use up everything he has in order to complete his goals. He happens to also be quite stronger than he leaves off, giving many of those around him the wrong idea of who he truly is and causing them to underestimate his true abilities. When brought up, he seems to dislike talking about his past, as he is ashamed that he couldn't be more useful and ended up wasting his life in bloodshed than actually doing the greater good he originally intended to perform.

Abilities Edit

Physical Power Edit

Glenn has excellent durability, which helps him become capable of withstanding multiple wounds and attacks without losing the motivation to fight.


Glenn Radars' pain tolerance.

During his time working for the Imperial Court Mage Corps, Glenn has acquired an astounding amount of military hand-to-hand combat skills, which is especially useful when he is unable to use spells because of his original magic currently still activating. He could perform "magic" Magical Punch, an overpowered version of a normal punch where Glen tricks opponent, spins his fist around as a distraction only to kick his enemy.

Magic Usage Edit

Even though he is a third rate mage, that does not change the fact he is exceptionally strong compared to other mages of the same rank. Glenn has amazing knowledge about magic spells. He knows what will happen to spells if you modify their spell chants in a certain way. He can proficiently use many different spells, and can use them with unofficial chants, for example: Glenn used "Shock Bolt" saying "Well, anyway, paralyze" instead of the original chant. He can use a deadly spell called "Extinction Ray", a devastating ray that can destroy everything in its way, but it significantly drains his mana.

"The Fool" Arcana Edit

Glenn is capable of using Original Magic by activating a card called "The Fool's World", which seals all spells in a specified area, with the exception of spells that are already activated. The downside of its use is that Glenn Radars also cannot use any magic since he too is in the specified area.

Intelligence Edit

Glenn has an exceeding amount of strategic knowledge, which is shown most when he takes control in the group.
