Angelica Barley (アンジェリカ・バーレイ Anjerika Bārei) is a Mage and an Artificer with her own shop. She's also the wife of David Barley and the mother of Althea Barley.[3][4]

She has known Elias since she was a child, though not as his apprentice. During magic training, there was an accident causing gems to merge with her flesh. She has grown cautious of magic, though that has not stopped her from opening a magic shop in England. Angelica married David and together they had a daughter named Althea. 


Skills and Abilities

The Sight

Like Chise, Angelica can see and ask for the help of the fae.


She specializes in embuing tools with magic, or making them for the purpose of magic. She uses these skills to construct magical accessories that help to control Chise's magic production in order to prevent her from killing herself as Sleigh Beggy's produce far too much magic for their bodies to handle.


She has formed a familiar bond with a vodanoi, Hugo. She also has other neighbors in her shop, suggesting she has the assistance of more than just Hugo.


As a magus like Lindel, Angelica possesses an extremely long lifespan beyond that of normal humans. In a flashback when she and her husband first met, Angelica's appearance was the same as the present while David appeared as a young boy.


David Barley

David is Angelica's husband. Unlike Angelica, David is not a magus and works a normal job. He fell in love with Angelica when he was still a young boy and pursued her for a long time until she finally relented and married him. He admits to Chise that he is relieved he won't die alone due to Angelica's longevity as a magus, but worries about leaving his wife and daughter behind as they will both outlive him. According to David, Angelica likely rejected him for years because she was afraid of watching her loved ones pass on before her.

Elias Ainsworth

Elias has known Angelica since she was a child. He would always make teddy bears to give to her as presents, something he now does for her daughter. The two of them appear to be on friendly terms, though Angelica often scolds Elias for his strange behaviors as a result of not being able to understand humans. In her first appearance, she scolded Elias for buying Chise like a product and then later punched him in the gut for doing "weird" things to her.

Elias relies on Angelica's skills as an artificer to help control Chise's powers as a Sleigh Beggy. She has made a ring and a bracelet for her that help to seal her magic in order to prolong her life.

Chise Hatori

Angelica is one of the first people to learn of Chise's nature as a Sleigh Beggy. Over the course of the series, she becomes somewhat of a secondary guardian to Chise and begins treating her like a second daughter. The two of them appear to be in friendly terms, with Angelica assisting Chise in her magical studies with learning materials like books and magic stones which she sends to their home from time to time. When Chise became afflicted with the Dragon's Curse Angelica slapped her as punishment for her foolishness, stating that she would have done the same to her own daughter.
