Johannes von Schicksal is the forty five year old father of Soma Schicksal, a leading expert on Aragami research, director and founding member of Fenrir of the Far Eastern branch. He has a soft demeanor and excels in political negotiating between the various branches. Despite his son’s hatred towards him and their seeming resentment for one another Schicksal cares deeply for Soma but rarely shows it. He invited the new leader to the organization.
Schicksal wanted to save humanity by saving a thousand select people and destroying all other life on earth. He called his top secret project the Ark Project but disguised it with the Aegis Project which was originally intended to build an Aragami proof city. The leader of the first unit Retaliation Team Lindow Amamiya took on special missions from Schicksal and eventually caught on to his scheme. Aware that Lindow was investigating him Schicksal attempted to kill Lindow during the “Moon in the Welkin” mission. He then proceeded with his plan using Shio’s core to prematurely activate Nova. Schicksal fused with the "God" portion of Arda Nova to stop the members of Fenrir who disagreed with his plan. Schicksal was slain and the Ark Project was left a failure.
