Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Larmica is a Greater Noble and as such has many strengths well beyond common vampires. Her pure blood line is one of the most prestigious in the Nobility and has inherited knowledge and secrets privy to it.
Immortality-This power is common to most of the Nobility (Vampires). Larmica is over 3,000 and she hasn't aged
Intelligence-Larmica has shown that it is quite certain aspects of intelligence. It will show a lot of knowledge of the history of the Nobility or even easy recognition dhampir . It is also one of the few persons who found some kind of connection between the D and Sacred Ancestor, as well who conclude the D's true identity as his son.
Kiss of Nobility
Flight- She floats and hovers several times indicating she may easily fly but refrains from doing. Most likely due to the flight being so taboo in the Nobility she refrains from using it all the time. She may do this through her telekinesis.
In the movie she being a dhampir should have been able to walk in the daylight, but this is never discussed in the movie. She also should have been given immunity to many vampire weaknesses which is common to dhampirs.
Like most Greater Nobilty she has resistance to most vampire weaknesses in comparison to common vampires. In the Movie as a Dhampir she should have been able to walk in the daylight unhindered and being immune to most vampire weaknesses but she does not display this ability. It leaves the truth of her lineage in doubt.
- The Japanese spelling of her first name, the Katakana ラミカ pronounced "La-Mi-Ka" is "Ka-Mi-La" (Carmilla) backwards.
- Larmica Lee's voice actors were Satoko Kito in the Japanese version and Edie Mirman in the English version.
- (To D) "Be you some manner of bodyguard? Hiring a knave like you for protection is just the sort of thing a lowly human wretch would do. Having heard from Father that the girl who lives here on not only beauty unrivaled by the humans in these parts, but that her blood is equally delectable, I came to see her for myself. But as I expected all along, there is no great difference between these foolish, annoying little pests."
- (To D about humans) "You lowly worms have forgotten your station, his mien seemed to say. Turncoat scum you are, forgetting the debt you owe your former masters, rebelling against them with your devious little minds and weapons. Here's where you learn the error of you ways."
- (To Doris) "We are the Nobility—the ruling class. The rulers are entitled to take such measures to ensure the rebellious feelings of the lower class are kept in check. You should consider yourself lucky we even allowed your race to continue."
- (To D) "To the contrary, the man is to be lauded. Is it not appropriate to sacrifice others to satisfy our own desires? The strong rule the weak, and the superior leave the inferior in the dust—that is the great principle that governs the cosmos. There are many among you who seem to share our point of view."
- (To Doris) "He died ... but he defended you right to the very end. It would sadden him to see you fall into Father's hands. I have no desire to cause the dead any more sorrow.."
- (Larmica's last words) "Kindly allow me to ask one thing—your name. D ... Is that D, as in Dracula?"
