I cannot bind anyone, and will not be bound. I don't want to be loved, I want to love.—Gaap, Alliance of the Golden Witch
BackgroundUnlike most demons within the series, Gaap is not based off of a servant that Sayo Yasuda worked with. Instead, Gaap was created as a friend to Sayo to personify habitually losing things and playing pranks on other servants at the Fukuin House.
Gaap appears as a young woman with ginger-blonde "drill" hair and blue eyes. She wears an elaborate red dress with black lacing and lined with white embellishments. She also wears a small red hat adorned with a pink bow. There are red bows on her neck and waist.She claims her dress is called "Jack the Ripper: Christmas Blood" from the Devilish Pretty collection.
PersonalityGaap has a rather sultry and playful personality. She tends to give her friends nicknames, referring to Beatrice as "Riiche" and Virgilia as "Lia".

She's first shown teasing Sayo over a cleaning tool in the Chapel. Gaap's presence is detected by them, who begs for her to return the small broom Sayo had been using to clean. After that day, Sayo and Gaap become friends, even though Gaap still pulled pranks on her new friend. When Sayo becomes responsible thanks to the "charms" Kumasawa gave the young servant, Gaap willingly changes their game to a challenge where Sayo must find the criminal of the story while reading mystery novels. If Sayo could find out the tricks and the criminal before reading the solutions, Sayo and the human side would win; failure would mean that the witch and the magical side won and the case would become a fantasy novel drowning the darkness of magic.One day, Gaap took possession of Sayo's body to play a prank on a servant; amazed by the beauty of magic, Sayo decided to become a witch as well. They took on the name Beatrice and the title of the Endless Golden Witch, transferring to Beatrice some of the witch's characteristics such as her cackling laugh and the butterfly minions, while Gaap would become a new witch (nameless until Beato could think of a name) and Beatrice's friend in the golden "paradise". Gaap gains her name only after Beatrice meets Maria, who gives Gaap her current name and her role as a demon. Afterward, Gaap is depicted as she is in all the previous games in the series.
