 Witch Hat Atelier Wiki

Richeh (リチェ, Riche) is a young apprentice witch and a disciple of Qifrey.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Richeh is a young girl with long sky blue hair and sky blue eyes. She wears the apprentice robes of Qifrey's atelier.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Richeh has a seemingly emotionless and childish personality, being very stubborn, individualistic, and resentful of authority figures that tell her what to do.[citation needed] She often refers to herself in the third person, another facet of her childlike personality. She is opposed to the idea of growing up and wishes to stay as she is forever in order to maintain her unique magic and individuality.[citation needed]

She specializes in crystal magic, particularly creating transparent crystal ribbons. She also excels at drawing small, intricate glyphs, even being able to use such tiny glyphs to form windowways.[citation needed] Her individualistic magic style is expressed in her more out of the box solutions to problems and tests.

History[edit | edit source]

Richeh was born in the Great Hall to a family of witches. Four years before the events of the manga, Richeh requested to apprentice alongside her brother, Riliphin.[citation needed] She joined Qifrey's atelier after breaking off her apprenticeship with her first professor.[citation needed]

Plot[edit | edit source]

A Touch of Magic[edit | edit source]

Richeh is first introduced when Qifrey leaves Coco in the entryway of his atelier.[citation needed] Tetia is thanking Coco back and forth, and Richeh notes that if you leave Tetia's be she'll quiet down. When Coco says she only started doing magic the other day, Richeh shares a concerned glance with Tetia, before the other girl begins telling Coco of the rumors they'd heard. Before Coco can respond, Qifrey comes back and tells Richeh and Tetia to wait outside which they agree to do.

Richeh continues to eat unbothered.

Richeh is seen the next day as she is eating dinner with Tetia. She asks why Tetia isn't eating, to which Tetia says she will but she's really concerned for Coco at that moment. Richeh stands up to get seconds, causing Tetia to explain she's acting too normal.

Likely days later, Richeh accompanies Qifrey and his other apprentices to The Starry Sword. When Coco says that due to Agott's amazing magic she must have an amazing heart as well, Richeh says she shouldn't get her hopes up about the girl. She accompanies Tetia and Coco as Mr. Nolnoa explains how Conjuring Ink is made and follows the two down the stairs to look at Ink Wands for Coco. When Coco runs out of the shop, Richeh follows Tetia in the chase after her. Once they catch up to her, Richeh is the first to realize they are no longer in Kalhn and runs after Tetia when the girl realizes there's a dragon chasing after them.[citation needed]

Trial By Fire[edit | edit source]

Richeh learns that she will be participating in the second test, The Sincerity of the Shield, along with Agott.[citation needed] Richeh becomes upset, telling Qifrey that she only joined his Atelier because he promised he’d let her do what she wants to do. Richeh says that she doesn’t trust Qifrey anymore, and goes back to the house. She goes through a portal she set up in a large jug to enter a secret space full of crystal ribbons.

Coco quickly finds Richeh inside of the room, and the two speak about the upcoming test.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Qifrey[edit | edit source]

Qifrey is Richeh's current professor, he took her into his atelier after being dismissed by her first professor.[citation needed] She seems to trust him enough that he won't force her to do magic she doesn't want to do, but still has bouts of stubbornness and dissatisfaction with his instruction.

Coco[edit | edit source]

Coco is Richeh's fellow apprentice under Qifrey. She often doesn't understand Coco's naive fascination with magic but gets along well with her.

Riliphin[edit | edit source]

Riliphin is Richeh's older brother. The two were evidently very close in childhood, and his love of Richeh's magic is one of the reasons she hopes to keep her magic free of outside influence.[citation needed]

Euini[edit | edit source]

Euini was one of Richeh's fellow test-takers during the second test. Despite originally disagreeing with Euini for using magic that isn't completely his own, Richeh was eventually able to help Euini to move past his reliance on magic made by others and helped him to realize that he was capable of making his own path with his own magic. At the same time, Euini helped Richeh to realize the value of magic made by others. Due to this, despite the short time they spent together, the two were able to form a strong bond.

When they parted ways after escaping the cave, Euini promised that he'd one day return back to his real self. Richeh then promised that she'd wait for him and that when they next met, they would show each other the magic they'd learned.

Despite no longer being able to see each other in person, the two stay in contact by mail. Notably, Euini once sent Richeh a great deal of letters for her birthday. When she received them, Richeh place the letters in what appeared to be a box for items that are precious to her, saying thank you as she did so.[1]

It is likely that Euini has a crush on her based on his reaction to the idea of her looking up at him.[2]
