How Flay joined the Tourney
Vayne's (in)famous alleged workshop leader. One of the main characters in the game and is called "Flaya" by Nikki. A strong, masculine and arrogant senior who harbors a hero complex and is very good at coming up and carrying out extreme, improbable ideas, often lead to hilarious conclusions. Despite being very capable in combat, he technically flunked most of his alchemy classes and was implied to have repeated senior year several times.
Out of all the members in the workshop, he harbors a mutual dislike for Anna and Roxis. Roxis for being too serious and quiet, and Anna for fear that the responsible girl will replace him and have complete authority over the workshop. The mana that accompanies Flay is the Mana of Gold: A relatively unfriendly Mana that refuses to come out unless it is necessary to do so. He contracted with Flay after he defeated him sometime after the end of Chapter 3.
One year after becoming the Art of Battle Class teacher, he secretly conspires a coup on some students. Just then, a Ranamon offers to be part of the plan. Some may wonder if Flay is pretending.
