Ley Batenkaitos (ライ・バテンカイトス) is a Sin Archbishop of the Witch Cult, representing the gourmet aspect of gluttony.


Ley is a short boy with long, dark brown hair that extends past his thighs. He wears a dirty rag like piece of cloth around his thin body. Underneath his rag, in the visible areas, are many wounds ranging from various things such as whip marks and bite marks.


Ley strongly resents merchants, referring to them as "people who place prices on things and sell them to line their own pockets. They're dead people who place the values and opinions of people on a scale before calculating". Like Roy, Ley cares about what he eats, unlike Louis who puts more emphasis on who he eats with. Also, the three speak in a collective manner using us and we instead of first or third person.


Authority of Gluttony (暴食の権能 Bōshoku no Ken'nō): Ley is able to use the Authority of Gluttony.

  • Gluttony (暴食 Bōshoku)
    • Ley can eat the name and memories of their opponent. To eat a name, he touches them with his left hand, then licks the palm of the same hand. Things such as experience, talent, and the likes and dislikes of human relationships serve as food for him, allowing him to take advantage of any abilities or memories his opponents had. However, if he eats a fake name, he becomes plagued with severe nausea.
      • Those that have had their names eaten have their existences erased from the world, destroying any human relationships along with preventing the use of magic and negating any contracts with Spirits.
      • Those that have their memories eaten become amnesic and any characteristics they may have had are reset, effectively making them into a different person.
      • Those that have both their name and memories eaten simply become a shell, and although they live, they no longer eat, excrete waste, or age, putting them in suspended animation.
  • Eclipse (蝕)
    • Eclipse is considered to be the trump card of gluttony and is also confirmed to have two types; Solar Eclipse (日食 Nisshoku) and Lunar Eclipse (月食 Gesshoku). The power of both haven't been explained but upon using Lunar Eclipse, the madness and resentment around Ley deepened, which Otto described as becoming sinister on a different level, and his speed increased enough to make others feel as though he had moved in an instant. Louis, while in Ley's form, claimed he couldn't use it properly in his current body but added that he could still completely destroy his opponents.


  • Ley's last name is also the traditional name for the star Zeta Ceti, which is apart of the constellation Cetus.
