Do you truly believe our species can coexist?...Even after you saw what they did? No...I won't put our kingdom through that pain again. I'll follow the rules our king left for us. If you still desire to go against his rules...then... Fight me.
~ Agate Lightvale


Agate Lightvale, the Wizard of Bravery, was one of the seven wizards that sealed off the monsters underground and a Major Antagonist of the Glitchtale series.

She ignored the rules of magic and experimented with forbidden spells, such as inverting your soul trait and the "Bête Noire" spell. It is said that an inverted bravery soul is not the only requirement to perform this spell, but it is unknown what else was required for it, such as another body. The use of this forbidden magic caused her slow and painful death.

History

Dust

Near the beginning of the episode, Betty's "mother" told Gaster that she needs to stay in Gaster's Lab first, the "mother" appeared as Agate. But since she was dead at the time, it was a hallucination by Betty.

Gaster, then reads the story of "Human History: Volume 9" and gets the following information: sometime after the barrier was created, Copper and his sister Agate fought against each other to determine rather it should be destroyed or not. Thanks to his trait's great strength, Copper became victorious. As for Agate, losing caused Agate to lose her trait. Out of humiliation, she ran away and was not seen for a long time.

Eventually, after inverting her trait, a very dangerous and forbidden spell was made on her soul, Agate returned for a rematch against her brother. This time, however, she managed to kill him, and the kingdom fell in ruin due to the battle's destruction. Unfortunately for her, Agate's soul was unable to adapt to the change due the result of the spell she cast upon it. Therefore, she sacrificed her very own soul to create the most powerful and destructive being imaginable, who would make sure that humans and monsters would never live in peace with one another.

Glitchtale Origins... The Black Beast

This episode managed to provide more detail on Agate and Copper. When the episode began we can witness that Amber was born during the night. Copper and Agate were watching the scene and just saw what could be their mother dying. Her soul integrity cracked after Amber was born.

Later, when the baby got older, Agate befriended her. Agate and Copper raised Amber along with them and it revealed she had a special green and blue soul, otherwise known as a two traited soul.

However, things began to change once the two siblings began to argue over the barrier. This eventually led to them battling, with Copper winning. Agate's loss humiliated her, causing her to lose her trait and then proceeded to flee. She started looking for a trait that had a chance to defeat Determination. And in doing so, she found it; Fear.

Agate's death

Later, Copper and Agate were reunited. However, something seemed different about Agate. She then challenged her brother once again. This time, however, she ended up winning. During the fight, Agate killed Amber, causing Copper to lose his trait. She then proceeded to kill him. Knowing that her time was short because her soul was cracking, she performed the Bête Noire spell and used Amber as a vessel for it.

My Promise

Agate only made a (non-physical) cameo in this episode. She popped up when Asgore said that Bete was the result of "a twisted mind's spell". 

Powers and Abilities

  • Magic Blasts - Agate possessed the ability to create powerful blasts capable of destroying anything in her way.
  • Spear of Bravery- Agate could use her spear to deal serious damage to her opponents, the damage is enough to kill them.

  • Hallucination Control - Although she was never seen using this ability, it should be safe to assume that could create and control hallucinations to stun her enemies, since Bete Noire was able to use it.
  • Inflicting FEAR - It is most likely that Agate can inflict fear to others after she reverted her soul trait, this is based on Human History Chapter 26.
  • Feeding on FEAR - Agate could possibly feed on the fear of others and her own to grow stronger.

Appearance

Agate wore an orange long-sleeve t-shirt, a light orange skirt that covers most of her legs, and an orange bow on her back that sometimes appears yellow. She had very wavy and long orange hair that became dark orange after inverting her trait and pink after gaining a soul of FEAR.

Personality

Originally, Agate was a kind, and selfless young woman. She greatly valued her family and seemed to act as a motherly figure around Amber. But, it's no secret that Agate believed that the barrier should be kept up. However, it wasn't because she hated monsters but rather, it was because she believed that humans and monsters living together would cause more wars. Which means that she was simply trying to keep the peace. She also might've been bold and confident, as shown when she bravely challenged Copper.

Unfortunately, everything changed after she lost her battle with Copper. This brought unbearable humiliation upon her, causing her to receive a grey soul due to losing her trait. After running away, she became obsessed with making sure humans and monsters will never live with each other and began to seek revenge on Copper for humiliating her. In fact, she was willing to go great lengths to achieve these goals.

After inverting her trait, she turned completely insane, very violent and highly sadistic, always smiling in the face of her opponent's pain. She clearly didn't care about the people she hurt, (even if they were children) and showed no problem with corrupting innocent people. A perfect example of her cruelty was when she smiled and showed no remorse when she forced Copper to watch her kill Amber, who was completely defenseless and did nothing but act as a loving younger sister to both Agate and Copper. All Amber wanted was to be a good and loving sister, but due to the cruelty that humanity contained, Agate, the true monster, murdered both Amber and Copper.

Even after all she did, Agate seemed to have believed that she was a good person and failed to see the wrong in her evil deeds.

Trivia

  • Bete Noire knows what happened in the past, because Bete Noire has all the memories of her "creator".[1]
  • It is unknown if the story of Copper, Agate and Amber would change if hard mode wasn't activated. This is because a lot of things changed when Frisk went into Hard mode.
  • Agate's name probably originated from Agateophobia, which is the fear of insanity.
  • Inverting your soul trait will have a high chance of you dying. (Example: Agate Lightvale died when she inverted her soul trait to FEAR)[2]

  • Copper and Agate are probably named after the minerals, Copper, and Agate.

  • Agate's and Copper's father probably died a few years before war times.[4]
  • Agate, even when dead, is still responsible for the creation of Bete, and is still her fault (Frisk could still be blamed) for creating the conflict in Season 2, since Bete Noire was created to fix the glitches.
  • When Agate inverted her trait, she became obsessed with the thought of having both races separate, leading her to kill her own siblings.
  • Even though Agate had a Bravery soul, she lost her trait after getting defeated by Copper, which could mean she had Kakorrhaphiophobia, or Atychiphobia,or the fear of defeat.
