Ratatoskr (ラタトスク, Ratatosuku?) is an organization created for the purpose of saving Spirits, the cause of Spacequakes, through peaceful means without killing the Spirits. It was founded by Elliot Baldwin Woodman after his defection from Deus Ex Machina Industries in opposition to their goal to harness the power of Spirits. As stated by Kotori, "The organization called <Ratatoskr> was an organization created for Shido's sake." Its parent company and source of technology is Asgard Electronics.


The organization known as Ratatoskr is only known by the upper level of the government and high-ranking military officials. Ratatoskr has five airships, the most active in Spirit affairs being Fraxinus. It is led by the Round Table (円卓会議, Entaku Kaigi?), which Woodman presides over as the chairman.[1] However, the members aside from Woodman are more profit driven and far less altruistic toward the Spirits and Shido. During moments when Kotori needs to report to the Round Table, the members contact her through speakers installed in stuffed plushies. In this form of communication, there is an ugly cat toy, a crying mouse doll, a silly designed bulldog, and a squirrel holding onto a walnut. Of the group, the last one represents Woodman's voice. After the Dáinsleif incident, Woodman removed several members who had acted in their own self-interest. Their headquarters is hidden in a secret location. However, after being found by Westcott's <Beelzebub> and destroyed in DEM's assault, they were forced to abandon their base and relocate elsewhere.


With the technical engineering backing of Asgard Electronics, Ratatoskr has access to the newest cutting-edge technology. However, in terms of sheer quantity, they are outnumbered by DEM. During the final battle, they were able to prepare five warships compared to DEM's thirty aerial warship fleet. Still, the organization is capable of producing top quality Realizers, which form the basis for the vast majority of their technology like aerial warships and the CR-Units.

  • Fraxinus (フラクシナス, Furakushinasu?): One of the five airships used by Ratatoskr, the command center of Ratatoskr members in charge of supporting Shido is located on the airship. It usually hovers about 15 km above the Tengu City. After being severely damaged by Origami in Volume 11, it is rebuilt into a more powerful version called Fraxinus EX (フラクシナス EX?), with the ship's AI MARIA now being able to communicate with the crew.
  • Ulmus (ウルムス, Urumusu?): The sister warship to Fraxinus. During the final battle against DEM, this ship was under the command of Karen Nora Mathers.
  • Dáinsleif (ダインスレイフ, Dainsureifu?): A satellite weapon owned by Ratatoskr. Its purpose is to annihilate Shido Itsuka in the event he goes out of control from the Reiryoku he has sealed. The key to activate the weapon was entrusted to Kotori Itsuka. However, members of Ratatoskr's Round Table hacked the weapon to fire it anyway when Kotori refused to do so. When activated, it targets Shido and proceeds to fire a pinpoint laser to completely eradicate him to the extent that not even <Camael>'s regeneration will save him. Despite its power, it is stopped by <Phantom>'s timely intervention.


Ratatoskr has several subsidiary companies under its command to provide a wide variety of services in numerous different industries. These companies serve as cover positions registered for the Fraxinus crew, as they cannot simply tell close friends and relatives that they work for a secret organization. The vast majority of these companies are dedicated to supporting the Spirits. For instance, there is even a subsidiary company focused on researching if human food is consumable for Spirits. When DEM was still an active threat, most of these subsidiary companies were kept as a deterrent against DEM's influence. However, after Westcott's death, this was no longer necessary. As such, Kotori was given the task to remove or merge the underperforming companies. [2]

Additionally, Ratatoskr's influence allowed them to provide extremely detailed cover identities for a majority of the Spirits when they assumed civilian lives after being sealed. Conversely, their sway in numerous fields also grants the organization top-notch investigation skills, being able to provide a detailed report of the past human lives of Yoshino, Natsumi, and the Yamai twins prior to them becoming Spirits.
