Dearche (ディアーチェ) is a former resident of Eltria and one of the three Materials alongside Stern and Levi. Their soul was released from the Tome of the Night Sky and placed into a body conjured from Yagami Hayate's data by Iris.
Gender and Race
As with the other two Materials, Dearche's gender is presently unstated. Though their titleships are traditionally used for men, Midchildan and Belkan language does not gender titles this way. While Dearche's body came from a woman, Yagami Hayate, it has not been made clear (as of Reflection) that Dearche would identify the same way.
Additionally, in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Detonation it is revealed that the Materials are not actually human but rather feline creatures native to Eltria, seemingly agender in nature.
