I’m honoured to be able to fight with all of you.

–Connla to the Hero Faction members, Light Novel DX.4, Power.2

Connla is a member of the Hero Faction. He inherited the spirit of the original Connla, the son of the Irish mythological hero Cú Chulainn.


Connla is a young man with black hair tied into a bun, he also wears a pair of shades. His attire consists of a black Japanese school uniform (more specifically, the gakuran worn by Japanese schoolboys in the fall).


Connla's most notable feature is that he's quite stubborn, still attempting to continue fighting even if he appears to be weakened and outmatched, displaying a degree of courage, loyalty and even unwavering determination. Connla deeply respects Cao Cao and follows his orders absolutely. His respect for Cao Cao is so great that he doesn't mind if Cao Cao just uses him, stating that his life wouldn't have any meaning otherwise.

However Connla can be somewhat arrogant whenever he feels like he's gained the upper hand against his opponents, going as far as unintentionally revealing one of his weaknesses to them.


Connla did not have an easy life, as a kid he was feared and oppressed by others due to his ability to control shadows, that is until Cao Cao came to him and persuaded the young man to join the Hero Faction.

Night Reflection's Balance Breaker: Night Reflection Death Cross

  • Night Reflection Death Cross (闇夜の獣皮(ナイト・リフレクション・デス・クロス), Naito Rifurekushondesu Kurosu): also known as the Beast Skin of Dark Night. Connla's Sub-Species Balance Breaker of Night Reflection which creates a black shadow armor that covers his body. He cites Issei's Scale Mail armor as a source of inspiration. Death Cross allows Connla to become like a shadow, gaining its intangible properties and allowing physical attacks pass right through him, although the wielder is susceptible to most forms of energy (heat/cold). Connla can also shape parts of his shadow body into a blade and tentacles that can bind his opponents. In addition Connla retains the ability to manipulate shadows as it absorb attacks using shadows and redirect the attack at enemies.
