Material-L (マテリアル-L[1] Materiaru Eru) is one of the chief antagonists in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's Portable: The Battle of Aces, along with Material-S and Material-D.

She appears again in the sequel The Gears of Destiny, with her new full name, new magic color, new spells and new Barrier Jacket variation.

Name and OriginsEdit

Material-L is the Material of power, part of the System U-D materialised as a clone of Fate Testarossa during the Dark Fragment Incident.

Her name is first introduced in The Battle of Aces in English Material-L and in Japanese "Assailant of Thunderblade" (雷刃の襲撃者 Raijin no Shūgekisha). The "L" in her name is believed to stand for "Lightning", which is associated with Fate.

In The Gears of Destiny, it is revealed her full name is Levi the Slasher (レヴィ・ザ・スラッシャー[2] Revi za Surasshā, usually rubied as 雷刃の襲撃者(レヴィ・ザ・スラッシャー)), which may be shortened as Levi (レヴィ Revi, short for "levin" which is an archaic word for "lightning", usually rubied as 雷刃(レヴィ)). Nevertheless, in the scenario U-D still calls her Material-L in Japanese.[1]

AppearanceEdit

Material-L looks like her original, Fate, except that her hair is light blue instead of blond. Her pupils are always contracted, like the other two Materials.

Alternate continuitiesEdit

PortableEdit

Levi appears in both Battle of Aces and Gears of Destiny.

Unlike Fate, Levi is very outgoing and often childish, but also prone to going berserk. She also likes to nickname others, e.g. Signum as "Bushido" (ブシドー Bushidō), Reinforce as "Black Feather" (クロハネ Kurohane) etc.

Brave DuelEdit

Levi Russel (レヴィ・ラッセル Revi Rasseru) is an international student studying abroad in Uminari City, owning the title "Levi the Slasher" for Brave Duel games. As a human, her pupils are no longer contracted. Her battle-related designs are based on Fate's in The MOVIE 2nd A's instead.

PowersEdit

Levi wields a Device named Vulnificus. It is a copy of Bardiche Assault, but its primary color is dark indigo and its gem is blue.

In The Battle of Aces, Material-L is one of the most powerful characters, combining Fate's speed in melee with Signum's weapons finesse and long-range defenses and Chrono Harlaown's extensive Full Drive enhancement skills. After Levi acquires her new powers upon reviving in The Gears of Destiny, lightning effects of her spells also change from golden-purple to her new aqua blue (水色 mizuiro)[3] magic color.

Barrier JacketEdit

As revealed in The Gears of Destiny Material Girls., Levi's protective clothing, presumably a Midchildan Barrier Jacket, is known as Slash Suit (襲撃服(スラッシュスーツ) Surasshu Sūtsu, lit. Assault Clothing). Its design (except colors) is same as that of Fate's Barrier Jacket "Lightning Form" in A's.

In The Gears of Destiny, Levi also has a speed-oriented variation for her Slash Suit named Sprite Form (スプライトフォーム Supuraito Fōmu). Its design (except colors) is same as that of Fate's Barrier Jacket "Sonic Form" in A's.
