- "I am right. I am the absolute justice."
Margit Eberbach (マルギッテ・エーベルバッハ) is one of the heroines and potential love interests of Naoe Yamato in Maji De Watashi Ni Koi Shinasai! S and A-5. She is also an officer of the German Army and a member of the Seven Stars, working under the direct command of Frank Friedrich (Chris' father).
Most of her missions involve locating and exterminating a target which has earned her the nickname "The Hound". She specializes in CQC (Close Quarters Combat) and uses a pair of specially made wooden tonfas to fight. Margit, like other highly skilled combatants, can measure the strength of a person by their stance and "aura".
Margit transferred to Kawakami Academy to take care of Christiane Friedrich while Chris is enrolled in the academy (Under the request/order from Frank), but she was also worried about Chris, since she had knew her from an early age.
She has a sister relationship with Chris, affectionately calling her "Maru-san".
Even though she's already graduated from high school, Margit was allowed to enter class 2-S, because Kawakami Academy values strength of the people more than anything. But she refuses to use the uniform of the academy, and prefers to use her military uniform.
Margit has returned to Germany to report her current mission and is in a conversation with her boss, Frank Friedrich, and has been assigned another assignment of disposing of any men after his daughter. The two likely suspects, Kazama Shouichi and Naoe Yamato, are the only men that can be considered people that can be in a relationship with Chris, but Cap't denied that fact for he has no interest in women, so Yamato is left as the only suspect. As days go by while investigating Yamato, she has been liking him more as a man, but kept on denying this feeling until Frank himself, came to Japan to personally investigate Yamato with Margit by taking him somewhere. During the interrogation he held his gun, stating that he was "cleaning it", then he asked "do you have a relationship with my daugher?" with no way out he called out to Margit, saying that he likes her, surprising them both, mostly Margit. Frank gives them his blessing and gives them the entire day alone with each other. At the end of the day Margit enjoyed her time with Yamato, saying, "it was nice to feel like a normal girl for once, but once we leave here let's forget about this" hearing this, Yamato did whatever he could to convince her and succeded, but it was just the beginning.
Margit went back as the leader of her Hound unit and was given the assignment of eliminating terrorists, the mission was a success but her movements were sluggish and her subordinates noticing this, suspects it's the cause of her lover, Naoe Yamato. Two of her subordinates; Lisa Brinker and Kojima Rohrbach, visited Japan in order to test the man. Lisa drugged Yamato and lead him to a hotel to find out if he is unfaithful, but not only did she fail, she was assaulted and Yamato even whispers Margit's name as he was asleep, while Kojima tested him in terms of strength, Yamato won by relying on his wits to overcome her monstrous strength, therefore passing her test.
Margit has red eyes, and long red hair that goes past her waist. She wears an eyepatch on her left eye and mainly uses her military uniform. Margit has an eye-patch covering her left eye to restrict her own power and only takes it off when she finds a worthy opponent.
In A-5 she wears her Hound uniform as well as sporting a general coat as a cape and with her sheathed tonfas
As an active part of the German military, Margit is loyal and extremely serious with her missions. When she was young, she was chosen by Frank Friedrich because of her hardworking nature, being called a prodigy by her peers. She is also very protective, especially towards Chris, since she is her superior, Frank Friedrich's daughter. She has a soft side and is weak to girlish flattery such as cute, which has only been seen by Chris and Yamato, and it is revealed in her route that one of her dreams is to live as a normal girl. She likes eggs and egg dishes. She also has a sweet tooth, possibly due to Chris and Frank Friedrich's influence, though she has said that consuming sweets helps with your thinking.
She tends to talk in a forceful manner yet sometimes gentle like a mother whose harsh but only because she cares
Abilities and Skills
Because she was trained in the military since she was little, she has been shown as one of the more stronger people. Combined with her talent, she soon earned her name The Hound and also became one of the strongest people in Europe. She is also one of the smartest as shown throughout the series as she is usually placed 4th during exams. Also because she has so many talents she was later placed in the S-class to secretly watch over Chris. Other than that she has also some abilities like:
Eyepatch restriction: During her stay in Europe, her strength was so overwhelming that she had to handicap herself so she could enjoy a fight longer. Because of her eye-patch, her vision is limited so it restricts her strength. Only when she meets worthy opponents or when getting serious does she take off her eye-patch. When it is removed, her aura changes and her strength and speed are several times greater. Her personality also changes becoming more fierce and predatory. But she is still not at the level of Momoyo as shown during the manga and visual novel. It's estimated measurement in power is undetermined, but it has been said by Chris that she could fight equally against her, but when she takes it off, she is not sure if she can win. It is also noted that Margit and Azumi are equally strong when Margit has her eye-patch on. But when she takes it off, she would probably win against her.
Master Tonfa User: Margit uses mainly her tonfas in battle. She has been shown to be very strong and fierce when fighting with them as if they are part of her body. Also Margit herself has mentioned that her guard with her tonfa is as strong as a castle wall. She can also throw her tonfas with great precision when needed.
Bad Cook: Even though she has many talents, she is a very bad cook. During her own route in Majikoi! S, she stated that she doesn't know how to cook for herself and that she mostly uses military food. However, she has said the reason for this is because since she is a soldier in the military, she doesn't need to be a good cook.
