Cixous would also participate in the Nazarick project known as "Valentine" which involved using non-buff food items of Valentine Chocolate to make into chocolate dishes. She worked with her fellow general maids and entered the Chocolate Layered Cake as their dish to be judged on whether it could be used as a diplomatic gift for dignitaries.[2]

One day when she was having lunch with Foire and Lupusregina in the canteen, Foire and her fellow maids were among the first to witness the first show of LittleMass. After the idol group's debut she continued to follow the idols' events that were being hosted throughout Nazarick.[3] When the idols began to distribute commemorative items, Cixous was absent as she was being interviewed by Momonga on her live idol show experience. However she was first in line at the next hand shake event and was able to see a live action battle between LittleMass against Cocytus and Mare Bello Fiore. Later she would enjoy the final moments of the second campaign with her co-workers at the Amphitheater. Once the entertainment sow was done, the hard work put into the idol show motivated Cixous and the maids to strive to work harder to repay Momonga and the Floor Guardians.[4]

At the time of the "Nazarick Swimsuit Athletic Meet", Cixous was among the maids that cheered the teams participating in the competition. Due to seeing Albedo's keen intellect and management skills to be a cornerstone to Nazarick, the maid chose to cheer for White Group. When the competition ended in a cumulative tie, Cixous and her fellow maids accepted the results and viewed it as a intense but fun game, commending both teams on their efforts.[5]

When the protagonist and his team were out to determine the origin of the Fake Sun over the land, Cixous attended to Momonga in the Round Table Room as her master waited to here a report from the homunculus.[6] A formal Halloween Festival in Nazarick was about to be planned and Cixous was excited about the upcoming event. She noticed that Foire was looking forward to it, given her previous Halloween experience with the Pumpkin Monster. Cixous along with CZ and Lupusregina cheered Foire adding that she contributed to improving Nazarick's defenses due to that situation. She was among those who volunteered help prepare for Halloween by taste testing the new chocolates by the Head Chef.

Later the role was expanded by Albedo, Slimeko and the protagonist to help create a new type of cheap, easy to produce chocolates for the citizens of E-Rantel who developed a craving for the confections since the items were revealed at the adventurer exhibition. As a part of the Halloween Festival, Cixous took part in the "Defense Training" part of the festivities to conduct an evacuation drill on the 9th Floor. The maid and others guarding the 9th Floor headed to the nearby panic room. After the events played out, Cixous celebrated Halloween at the pumpkin patch on the 6th Floor with the others trying the candy.[7]

While conducting a "general cleaning" of Nazarick, Cixous and Foire stopped by the kitchen where the Head Chef gave them some mochi that was prepared on the orders of Albedo to further her study of "New Year". The two maids encountered Momonga and his party who reacted with apprehension of the offered mochi, in fear that it was an indicator that another "New Year" event was imminent. However once misunderstandings were cleared up with the maids profusely apologizing for making their superiors worry, the naivete of the two maids on the holiday caused Momonga to rethink his stance on meeting the event with caution, but instead embrace it leading to the creation of the Kakushigei Tournament. Cixous along with the other general maids were present for the tournament and enjoyed the spectacle as part of the audience in the Amphitheater.[8]

The maid would join the effort to prepare for the Sorcerer Kingdom’s National Foundation Day Ceremony.[9] Cxious would work to finish in time for the deadline.

Cixous attended the live idol show featuring the return of LittleMass. She and the general maids witness not only their favorite idols Alkaline and Acidity but a new idol named Neutrally The introduction of the new character resulted in the renaming of the idol group to LittleMasStar and while the change was unexpected, Cixous and the maids came to adore the new idol and new cloth tag dolls and lottery prizes that came with the idol campaign.[11]

Whilst having a meal at the canteen, Cixous talked to Foire about the rumored new area that was being constructed on the 9th Floor. Though all the two knew about it was that it was a entertainment facility. they still hoped to be given the chance to use it once it was done.[12]

Cixous and Foire eventually made time to go to the new area, Casino Resort Nazarick, and played the games there with the instruction of the elder liches manning the tables. Cixous while playing roulette managed to double her winnings from 10 chips to 20 chips. She and Foire met with Lupusregina and CZ who commented on the casino being very popular as well as the installed fan and refrigerator which the maids claimed to be useful items, making their stay at the casino more enjoyable.[13]

During the New Year's event, Cixous fell under the holiday's mental influence and began working with the general maids and Head Chef to prepare New Year dishes. After the influence was broken, Cixous joined the maids and the rest of Nazarick in celebrating New Year's by watching live performance of LittleMasStar with Narberal and Lupusregina acting as guest stars.[14]

Cixous and Foire would later serve a tea party hosted by Aura for Yuri and Pestonya to talk about the upcoming plan to create a new chocolate product. The two general maids were included in the discussion as they brought the recreated dishes of the previous prototypes to help brainstorm. When the New Valentine's Plan was started, the maid helped to create new flavors for the candy in Golden Chocolate In A Bottle.[15]

Cocytus would approach Cixous and Foire after being put in charge of developing a new "chilled chocolate" dish. The maids were surprised by the Floor Guardian's placement as the one leading the project, but obliged to be interviewed and told him about the previous four chocolate dishes that were made at a taste party when chocolate was being researched in Nazarick. The interviewed stopped when Pestonya brought snacks of monaka for Cocytus's break and asked the maids to resume their duties. Later Cixous was seen attending to Momonga as his maid and reported to him that Foire and the other general maids were busy preparing recreations of the four chocolate dishes for Narberal to try, who was assisting Cocytus. At the reenactment of the taste party, Cixous spoke on behalf of Foire who was on duty serving Momonga, about the chocolate cake that they had devised for Narberal's benefit. The maid was present when Cocytus and Narberal released the Chilled Chocolate Confectionary before Momonga.[16]

In an emergency operation to create a new batch of luxurious chocolates for a noble's party, Cixous assisted the Pleiades in preparing a special batch of Natural Forest Chocolate.[17]

Some months after the unprecedent emergence of Cracks and attack of Chaos Beasts on E-Rantel, Cixous was on duty as Momonga's maid attendant during his meetings pertaining to the gains of the Sorcerer Kingdom during the turmoil and the losses of their missing comrades such as the protagonist, Slimeko and members of the Pleiades. When Momonga was alone with Cixous, he asked her in confidence on how the remaining Pleiades were handling the disappearances of their sisters. The maid provided that the Pleiades were keeping up a positive face, though she and the general maids could tell that there were linger hints of sadness. Momonga then asked Cixous to give whatever support to the grieving Pleiades and to not cast all hope away. From her master, Cixous learned that the missing Pleiades were indeed alive and that Nazarick had not abandoned them, with the Overlord swearing he would wait no matter how long it took to find them.[18]

At the inception of the Bard Plan, a rock music venue was held on the 9th Floor in a corridor for the general maids. Cixous and Foire were present watching CZ and Narberal play their rock music. Cixous and the other maids enjoyed the show and pointed to the group that their band lack a name. Later at the next venue in the bar on the 9th Floor, Cixous and Foire came up with a name for the rock band: Βγδth. For the rest of the plan, Cixous followed the appearances of Βγδth, cheering them on as they appeared around Nazarick and finally witnessing them face off against LittleMasStar in a final live show.[19]

Cixous was a frequent visitor of Casino Resort Nazarick, where she developed a competitive streak with Foire. When the event "Rare Item Acquisition Day" was being organized, she and Foire were invited by Mare at his betting strategy lecture to help their fellow general maids familiarize themselves on the easy tactics and games. At the event it was revealed that it would held for a three day period for the general maids, with the Pleiades being reassigned to fulfill the duties of their junior, Cixous and her peers were worried of their jobs being taken but were given assurances by the Pleiades it was only temporary and that the event was for their enjoyment.

At the betting tables, Cixous made use of Winner's Method, involving making gains with few losses through low-risk betting. She and Cixous were nearly tied with each other and aimed to win the life-sized Momonga Plushie. At the last game Cixous won over ten thousand chips and was expected to cash her gains for the prize. In the end Cixous choose friendship and instead used her chips to acquire two novelty mugs for her and Foire, who likewise did the same using her remaining chips.[20]

At the time of New Year’s Eve, Cixous and Foire helped decorate the 9th Floor. Once they were done the two maids were told by Pestonya to help the Head Chef prepare dishes for the holiday.[21]

Homunculus Maids

Cixous is able to get along quite well with her coworkers like Foire and Lumière. She would usually hang out with the two of them when they are seen eating together.

Mare Bello Fiore

It seems apparent that the two get along with each other as Cixous was willing to speak out for Mare's sake when he is speechlessly sentimental due to Ainz's words.


  • Due to her creator's hatred of floppy bacon, calling it of the devil, she insists on only eating crispy bacon.
  • Cixous was originally translated as Sixth by translators after her debut in the series.


  • (To the Homunculus Maids): "Have you heard? They say they're going to cook using ingredients from the outside world and have a food tasting."
  • (To the Homunculus Maids when describing Ainz): "Ainz-sama was the one who commanded the Supreme Beings, so his management skills would be excellent. So he is a 'wise king'."
  • (To Ainz while speaking up for Mare): "On behalf of Nazarick, I thank you for remaining here with us, out of all the Supreme Beings. I know that there are many instances where we have displeased you and you have found us lacking. I know it is rude to ask this of the creator, but please allow us to serve you loyally!"
