"Don't use my full name."—BATTLER, Dawn of the Golden Witch
BATTLER is the true protagonist of Umineko no Naku Koro ni. One in the same with Battler Ushiromiya, BATTLER was originally a human who was a member of the wealthy Ushiromiya family. He began a heated rivalry with the witch Beatrice and eventually gained the powers of a witch for himself. He serves as the Game Master for Dawn of the Golden Witch.
The Endless Sorcerer and the final Game Master. He is the Territory Lord and ruler of the game board.
To prove that he has won Beato's game, he must act the part of the Game Master. By succeeding in this, his victory will be acknowledged, and Beato's game will reach its end.
Because he knows all the truth, the plane on which he exists is higher than those of all others.
Like Battler Ushiromiya, BATTLER appears as a young man with short, spiky, auburn hair parted to the side. He has brown eyes in his original sprite, however almost every iteration of his character afterwards has blue eyes. He wears a khaki suit with the One-Winged Eagle. Underneath this suit, he wears a black vest with a red long sleeved shirt with a black tie. He also wears a black cape (similar to the cape Kinzo Ushiromiya wears), symbolizing his position as the Game Master.
BATTLER is exceedingly prideful, something which can be taken advantage of in the right situation.
Dawn of the Golden Witch
BATTLER's soul becomes trapped in a Logic Error due to the schemes of Erika Furudo and Bernkastel. During this time, Erika marries his lifeless body in order to take his ring and become Territory Lord of Beatrice's games so that she can humiliate BATTLER for eternity. He remains trapped in his Logic Error for several years until the lingering spirit of Kanon manages to save him.
Requiem of the Golden Witch
BATTLER briefly appears at the beginning of Requiem of the Golden Witch. He mourns over Beatrice's casket alongside Virgilia before leaving the funeral hall.
Twilight of the Golden Witch
BATTLER hosts a Halloween party in an effort to communicate a certain idea to Ange Ushiromiya. During the party, Bernkastel kidnaps Ange and holds her hostage in order to force BATTLER and Beatrice into participating in a final game.
