Colbert Jean (コルベール・ジャン, Korubēru Jan) is a professor at the Tristain Academy of Magic. It is later revealed that he was also known as the Flame Snake at one point.

Background

Colbert is a professor at the Tristain Academy of Magic who is interested in history. He has a high interest in science and peace, which are the reasons why he likes to see Saito's world one day. He was responsible for producing the gasoline for the airplane along with a very short lasting improvement for it. It is revealed that he was the captain of the mage troops sent to burn Agnès' village years ago, and also the person who rescued her, when he found out the village was not "plagued."

He has an anti-war attitude, and is envious when he finds out that modern Japan is not ravaged by war.

Plot

Familiar Spirit Summoning Exam

Colbert oversees the summoning exam of the sophomores at the academy. When Louise de la Vallière seeks permission from him to perform the ritual again after summoning a plebeian, Colbert does not allow her and states that the ritual is a sacred event, encouraging her to finish the contract with whatever she has summoned. Colbert notices the runes on the human's left hand afterwards and becomes inquisitive with it. Later that night, he becomes successful with researching about the runes on the boy's hand, leaving him shocked.
