Jill in the Rance VI opening.

Jill, also known as Gele before the official localization, was the fifth Archfiend and was chosen by Nighcisa as his successor. Jill went on to become the most savagely brutal Archfiend to ever live. 

When she was a human, she was a well-known beauty and a renowned philosopher, her wisdom reached out to many people, her intelligence helped those in need and her kindness was known across the land. There were, of course, people that harbored jealous feelings towards this seemingly perfect girl, which is why one day she was attacked by a mob of those that despised her virtues.

She was savagely beaten, raped and tortured. Her face smashed with rocks and sticks, her arms and legs were torn off, her delicate breasts ripped into by stones. After the ordeal she was left on the roadside to die, but by this point her mind was already gone. 

It was the sight of this dying girl that Archfiend Nighcisa noticed as he took a stroll across that country road. In the last years of his life, Nighcisa was searching for a heir and it was the sight of the beaten Jill that made him feel pity for a human for the first time. He gave her his blood and turned her into the next Archfiend as a result. Before he moved on, Nighcisa had told her about the Hero System and of its workings, that the Hero of the era would gain strength as humanity dies.

Ordinarily, the Archfiend would feel blood lust naturally, but Jill was mentally broken and warped by the series of events that had unfolded just prior to her transformation. Due to that chain of events, Jill's hatred for humanity was the most intense hatred that could ever have been felt.

In under the span of a year, Jill had wiped out every single nation mankind had established.

Appearance and Abilities[]


Archfiend Jill during her reign.

Fair skinned, with soft hair and pretty blue eyes, Jill was a girl who could be called faultless, intelligent, incorruptible and beautiful. However after turned into the Archfiend she became cunning and brutal, she subjugated mankind to a life of slavery with several well-laid plans. Her knowledge of the Hero System meant that she knew how to foil any chance humanity had against her. Jill did not want to simply kill humans, she decided that she would give the entire race a taste of living hell by making them live as slaves, toys and playthings for the Monsters and Fiends. However, she prohibited monsters to kill humans unless it was absolutely necessary. It was done this way to keep humans numbers as high as possible to not be threatened by the Hero System.

During her reign no nation could be established, the lucky humans would live in small villages hidden across the land hoping to not get attacked by monsters or Fiends. Others would simply be caught and live as the toys of the monsters or forced to a life of slavery until they die of exhaustion or starvation. Nights were silent and dark and going out during such hours was considered suicide even by the bravest warriors.

In order to counter the Hero System, Jill set up thousands of "Human Farms" where humans would be bred and kept like livestock, this way the population would never fall to the levels necessary for the Hero to be able to kill her. Captured women would often be sent to the farms to be used for breeding purposes until they die. Sometimes some unlucky humans would be kept as Jill's "pets" where their arms, legs and tongue would be mutilated, rendering them completely defenseless, a clear way of causing to humans the same that was done to her. 


British, an immortal human that lived during Jill's era, claims that her era was so horrible that the memories of it still haunts him to this day and that he can still hear the screams of the people that were kept in Jill's facilities. There were even some Fiends like Aizel that feared Jill.

There were many that tried to take her down, but all their efforts would be futile. As the Archfiend, Jill was the most powerful being in The Continent, unmatched by anyone and far beyond humanity's comprehension. Humans were less than insects for her.

However, when the time of her era was drawing close, Jill started to fear death. The Archfiend always rules for 1000 years and near the end she started researching different ways to become immortal and rule over mankind forever. From books that a previous Archfiend Ssulal had written and left to her successors, Jill learned about the existence of Supreme God Planner. She gained an audience with Planner, and requested to be the Archfiend for eternity. Planner granted her wish and she became an unkillable immortal but the price she payed was that she was extremely weakened to only 5% of her full strength. There was a Fiend named Gai that served Jill and was her personal lover. However, Gai had split personality disorder, and his chaotic personality saw her weakened state as an opportunity to take her down. Certain factors allowed him to go against the Archfiend's blood control ability and in the year GL1004 he betrayed Jill and used the Demonic Sword Chaos to pierce her heart. Due to her request to Planner, Jill was unkillable but Gai managed to seal her in a dark and empty dimension between space and time, where she would live for eternity as the Archfiend, with nothing to rule. It's worth to note that, while Jill was a ruthless and cruel monster, she did truly love Gai and was legitimately heart-broken by his betrayal, and she spent the next millennium incapable of comprehending why he would act against her.

Appearances in the Series[]

Rance 03[]


A bit more than 1000 years after she was sealed, Jill makes a physical appearance during the events of Rance 03 when her loyal follower, Fiend Nos, releases her from her imprisonment in the Alternate Dimension after Rance was manipulated to remove Chaos, as he intended to use the Sword to defeat the Fiends. Nos and Aizel appeared immediately after and Rance attempts to fight Nos, but he's ignored by the Fiend, who's instead kneeling to the newly revived Jill. Her appearance changed into a more childlike form due to being sealed for so long in a void dimension with reduced power and life energy, which shocked Fiend Aizel and his Apostles but they all still kneeled to their master. Despite being only at 5% of her original strength, Jill still remains an extremely powerful entity that makes normal humans have trouble even breathing on her presence. Most of the humans that saw Jill during her revival were filled with a feeling of dread and hopeless despair and were just completely overwhelmed by her presence, to the point some of them were literally unable to move an inch. Rance tried to fight with Jill as soon as she was revived but he was dispatched with ease and thrown to a different location, which gave Nos an opportunity to shatter Chaos. Jill left the area along with her Fiends right after.

She's later seen consuming humans to recover strength and life force, as she's still greatly weakened, while her servants update her on the most recent events on the Monster Realm. They tell her about the Civil War between the Kayblis Faction and the Hornet Faction but Jill seems uninterested and asks about Gai instead, being informed by Nos that he recently died. Jill is noted for being extremely calm and seemingly apathetic all the time, possibly from having spent 1000 years in solitude. While Jill is recovering strength, Rance and his party manage to find a way to repair Chaos, which Jill notices immediately and sends Fiend Aizel to destroy Chaos for good.


Rance forms a party with many of the top fighters from Leazas and the Free Cities and makes his way towards Jill. Her intimidating presence can be felt even from a distance, with the mages being particularly susceptible by it. Once they reach the room where she's hiding, Fiend Nos blocks the path, guarding his master and engaging in a fierce battle against the party. After a long battle, Nos is finally slayed and the party's celebration is instantly interrupted by Jill's arrival. Nos manages to barely remain alive to whisper Jill's name, but she makes no emotional reaction and absorbs Nos's Demonic Blood Soul to recover power, however, she says that said power is still not enough. Chaos claims that if they were able to defeat Nos, they should be able to defeat Jill as well in her current state, a fact that Jill is aware of and instead opens a Dimensional Rift to an Alternate Dimension to run away. A strong wind blows from the Dimensional Gate and Rance's party is held back, yet Rance himself manages to go through the gate to chase after Jill on his own. He finds himself alone with only Chaos in a strange Dimension, which leads Jill to remark her surprise that a human would follow her. In this dimension, Jill is able to access to a Dimension Rip that allows her to recover strength by continuously raising the Levels of everyone in the Dimension, including both Rance and Jill. This leads Chaos to panic since the difference between a Level Cap of a human and a former Archfiend is probably colossal. When Jill reaches her full potential, she closes the gate but is, for the first time, shocked by Rance, whose Level had raised to obscenely high values. Both Jill and Chaos are completely astonished, as she then figures out that Rance doesn't have a Level Cap and, thus, had potential to become infinitely stronger. Rance is now confident and laughing, claiming that he doesn't feel Jill's oppressive aura anymore, whereas Jill is angered by the outcome and he's able to eventually over-power her thanks to his limitless power growth, finally defeating her in battle. 


Having defeated Jill, Chaos is completely amazed by Rance and tells him to finish her off now that he has the chance, however, Rance ignores his desperate request and throws Chaos away because he's annoyed by him, much to the Blade's despair. Lying helpless on the ground, Jill expresses surprise that someone like Rance exists while he starts undressing and claiming that he's gonna have sex with her. During sex, Jill gets nostalgic and compares him to Gai or the men who raped her when she was still human, claiming that he is "a bit different", though Rance doesn't like being compared to other men. After he's done, Rance wants to return to The Continent through the Dimensional Rift and Jill has no force left to move. The Rift suddenly starts closing because Jill is depleted of her powers, and Rance hurriedly stands up, however, he's immediately stopped in his tracks by Jill, who claims that she doesn't want to be alone in a void dimension again and wants Rance to stay with her. He's actually tempted for a split-second until he can vaguely see Sill from the other side of the gate who, upon seeing Rance, starts stretching her hand to reach him. While Jill starts wailing for his departure, Rance apologizes by saying that he's not the type that would set down with a single woman and disappears through the Gate, leaving Jill alone once again.

Jill claimed that it would take her another thousands of years to recover alone in the dark space.

Rance VI[]

Jill makes appearance in the opening sequence, where the most important things about her era and her character were described.

She later makes an indirect appearance as a Boss Fight when Fiend Sieg uses his transforming ability to turn into Jill, though, since Jill's power is far greater than his, the transformation ends up being weaker than the original and only lasts for a relatively short period of time.

  • Along with Little Princess and Archfiend Rance, she's the only Archfiend to make real appearance in the Rance games, outside of opening sequences or flashbacks.
  • Jill is notoriously one of the few people that has caused some level of fear in Rance because of the oppressive aura she generates. He claimed that even he was at odds, stating that he experienced a strange feeling of "wanting to run away" even though he was looking at a beautiful woman and he wouldn't usually think such thing.
  • In Rance 03 Jill has an unknown level cap despite the fact that she's a Archfiend. This might mean that only the established Archfiend of the current era is exempt of the level cap rule or that she simply isn't technically a Archfiend anymore.
  • The appearance of her limbs in Rance 03 changed into a more twisted and demonic form that wasn't shown in previous designs of her character. It is likely that this is a change that was applied retroactively and her arms and legs always looked that way in the canonical storyline.
  • The enslavement of humanity lasted exactly 1027 years until they were set free in the year GI0024 by Silky Littleraisin and Archfiend Gai.
  • She was originally going to make an appearance in Rance Quest but the idea was cut off in the final game.
  • In the Rance 03 popularity poll, Jill was ranked 9th in the Female Characters category.
  • In a Twitter Q&A, Orion, the Rance Series' lead artist, stated that Jill had a Level Cap of 36 and the Magic Lv1 and Divine Magic Lv1 Skill Levels during her time as a human. Orion made a point of noting that this information had not been verified by Alicesoft, and as a result should not be taken as fact.
