Hishiri Adashino (化野 菱理, Adashino Hishiri?) is one of the people involved in the Adra Castle incident of Lord El-Melloi II Case Files.[2]



Hishiri is an officer of the Department of Policies within the Clock Tower, which typically serves to regulate and, if necessary, punish mages in violation of Clock Tower rules, such as potential exposure of mysticism. It is believed that she and Doctor Heartless are adopted siblings, but unbeknown to even herself, they are secretly half-sibling by a different mother.



Both Gray and Waver describes her as similar to a snake, elegant and ever calculating. As with most magi, Hishiri is efficient and remorseless, taking no issue at luring a large group of potential troublemakers to a deathtrap under false pretences. 

She has expressed disinterest in the Root, believing the idea of ever reaching it to be a pipe dream and only wishes to continue performing her duties. 


Lord El-Melloi II Case FilesEdit

case. Adra Castle SeparationEdit

Hishiri was the officer assigned to manage the inheritance affairs of the Adra Castle case, although her true role wouldn't be discovered by Waver until later. 

On the next day, Hishiri briefed the guests on Geryon Ashborn's will and the challenge they would need to overcome in order to claim Adra Castle and its secrets, which was to guess the name of a certain angel. This was all however, a ruse set up by the Law Department and the deceased Ashborn. During the night, Hishiri removed herself from the equation by falsifying her own murder with a prepared corpse and remained hidden to observe the other guests.

Reappearing unharmed at the resolution of the case, Waver voiced his suspicion she and her department had intimate understanding of the history of Adra Castle and most likely sent troublesome individuals there to eliminate them. Hishiri does not deny Waver's accusations and instead tells him to consider his own role in the grand scheme.

Grace noteEdit

Adashino was involved in the incident concerning the Marburry Workshop created by Trevor Pelham Codrington.[3][4]

Hishiri Snake

Hishiri's snake.

The glasses she wears are Mystic Eye Killers, her Mystic Eyes having the ability to find lost things.

Hishiri's magecraft revolves around bundles of white cloths that she is capable of instantanously animating into snake familiars, large enough to constrict a full-grown man from head to toe. She typically hides several bundles under her clothes and can spontanously eject them from her sleeves to either restrain someone or to seal off exits. Her familiar is capable of reconnaissance and can become completely invisible and undetectable, allowing it surprise its targets. When dismissed, the snake will dissipate into a black fog. 

She is quite cunning, as she understood that all it took to falsify her death was by preparing a similar looking corpse and then destroying its eyes to immediately convince people the corpse was her.[2] This trait also makes her a master actor, allowing her to fool even someone like Dr. Heartless and lure him into a trap devised by her and Waver.[5][6]
