Virgilia remains a powerful witch even after surrendering the name and title of Beatrice the Endless Witch, most notably in her fight with the incumbent Beatrice. Over the course of the battle, Virgilia demonstrates the abilities of flight and teleportation as well as creating magic shields and summoning mythical objects such as Mjolnir and Gungir. She even demonsrtates the ability to summon Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Virgilia appears as a dignified woman with long silver hair. Virgilia keeps her eyes closed in order to minimize her abilities as her magic would otherwise overwhelm her. She typically wears a black dress with sleeves that cover her arms alongside a black choker. She also wears a black hat with red roses adorning the top. She wears an orange sash over her dress with a white insignia emblazoned on it.
- The name "Virgilia" comes from Virgil, who served as Dante's guide in the Divine Comedy.
