Jessica Bailey is a Wizard from Deus Ex Machina Industries. She is dubbed as the Adeptus 3, making her the third strongest Wizard in the world.
Jessica is one of the 10 members from DEM that had been transferred into the AST with a secret mission: to capture the Spirit, <Princess> and Shido Itsuka. She, along with the other DEM members, was given the authority from the higher-ups to act on their own at any given time without having to follow orders from the AST.
She is killed by Mana Takamiya as an act of mercy due to the damage her body took from using the <Scarlet Licorice> for a prolonged amount of time.
Jessica is shown to have long curly dark red hair and fox-like icy blue eyes. She often wears a black military uniform in the JGSDF garrison. During a battle, she wears CR-Unit with dark pink and grayish red as the main color scheme.
Jessica is shown to be mentally unstable. While she appears to be calm when not battling, her true self is similar to Ellen. She is very condescending toward the AST for their constant failure to kill any Spirits. Jessica is extremely loyal to Westcott and seeks his approval, holding a one-sided rivalry with Mana for outranking her, something which intensifies after Mana defects from DEM. Jessica becomes a battle maniac after absorbing too much magic during her final battle with Mana and even goes to the point of saying Mana's name repeatedly in a deranged manner. Later as she is dying, Jessica reveals that her unhinged nature when fighting only comes from wanting to have Westcott's recognition.
Powers and Abilities
Jessica was ranked Adeptus 3 among DEM's Wizards, only surpassed by Ellen and Mana. However, the gap in their abilities is vast, as Mana easily defeats her along with Adeptus 4-12.
Equipments & weapons:
- Combat Realizer Unit (CR-Unit): The standard combat wiring suit of the AST is usually worn around the AST base and underneath the CR-Unit when a user is in combat. Jessica customized her to be red in color to denote her status as Adeptus 3.
- <Scarlet Licorice> (スカーレット・リコリス, Sukāretto Rikorisu?): Codename DW-029R, the sister model to <White Licorice>. Her power was greatly enhanced to the point that she could fight evenly with Mana at the cost of her sanity.
- <Blast Arc>: A blast of Maryoku from the cannons.
- <Root Box>: A missile bombardment.
- Jessica is the first named character to be killed in the series.
