Guiche de Gramont is a character from the Zero no Tsukaima anime and light novels.
Louise's classmate and a consummate playboy despite being in love with Montmorency. He always carries an artificial rose with him, the stem of which is his wand. He also likes to dote upon his familiar, a giant mole named Verdandi. As his familiar indicates, his specialty is earth magic and he prefers to fight using bronze statues called Valkyries.
In the AWA fics, Guiche is a student at the AWA Academy and is part of Class 8.
Guiche is a young man with blonde hair and blue eyes. He wears a white ruffled-collar blouse underneath a black, long cloak where his collar rests on, violet pants and black shoes.
He cowers in fear after Saito defeats him in a duel, or Fouquet with her Earth Golem. However, he does get lucky at some times, like when he unintentionally knocked Cromwell out with a stick while Tabitha and Kirche were under the power of the Ring of Andvari, in Futatsuki no Kishi, when he served in the army with a boy named Nicolas as his sergeant, and in Princess no Rondo, when he improves greatly, becoming a Commanding Officer (with Saito as his deputy) of the Ondine Knights of the Water Spirits Corps. He also later becomes good friends with Saito, as shown when he tried to cover up for him and try to cheer him up. In Zero No Tsukaima F episode 6, Saito, when he wants to invite everyone to the mansion, he says, "Guiche and the others," suggesting that they have become good friends.
He loves Montmorency, but the latter only learns of Guiche's habitual two-timing when Saito exposes this to the public and Guiche learns his lesson. However, he still loves Montmorency very much and is willing to protect her, but still has the habit of wooing and acting cool in front of girls he has a crush on, including the princess.
He always carries an artificial rose with him, the stem of which is his wand. He also likes to dote upon his familiar, a giant mole named Verdandi. As his familiar indicates, his specialty is earth magic and he prefers to fight using bronze statues called Valkyries.
- Guiche's name comes from Armand de Gramont, Comte de Guiche (1637 – 1673), who was known for being vain, overbearing, and somewhat contemptuous.
