"Indubitably so, Ainz-sama! For as I was made by you, if you desire me to do battle with the other Supreme Beings, I shall charge into the fray without hesitation!"
— Pandora's Actor to his creator, Momonga.

Pandora's Actor (パンドラズ・アクター) is an Area Guardian of the Treasury and the financial manager of Nazarick. He is responsible for the upkeep of Nazarick and Ainz Ooal Gown. He is the creation of Momonga himself.

Appearance

Pandora's Actor hat bore the crest of Ainz Ooal Gown, while the uniform he wore was very similar to the uniforms used by Neo-Nazi elite guards during the Euro-Arcology Wars 20 years ago.

While Pandora's Actor is dressed in a yellow Neo-Nazi-esque uniform, he is just an egghead with no distinct facial feature except the three holes protruding on his face.

According to Momonga's original design for him, Pandora's Actor is supposed to be the combination of everything that his creator thought was cool, with exaggerated gestures and body language.

Personality

Pandora's Actor is an egghead whose behavior is always over-exaggerated that Ainz sees as humiliating to his own past. However, while Pandora's Actor is over the top, he can also be extremely practical. In addition to that, Pandora's Actor is outspoken and self-reflective enough about how his actions as his master's body double may hurt the reputation of Ainz in the face of his foes. He admits of going overboard with his acting performance and was critical of his own transgression for it. When fighting Riku Aganeia who has mysterious powers unknown to him, he possesses a similar way of thinking like his creator and how to carefully approach the battle against it in a way that suits Ainz's objective.

Even though Pandora's Actor was in a death battle for his life, the level-headed shape-shifter remains cool, calm and collected despite feeling trapped by the enemy's power. It was to the point that he was not the least bit afraid of carrying his experiment out in the open fearlessly while the battle was still happening. Pandora's Actor would put up a facade, maintaining it calculatingly for however long he needs to get the enemy's reaction. He is very diligent and attentive to details while carrying out his role as a Doppelgänger under Ainz's order, paying close attention to not only what his enemy say and do but his surroundings as well.

Unlike other NPCs who would willingly obey Ainz's every order without question, Pandora's Actor is an exception. He was willing to question his creator's order if needed, clarifying his duties and giving suggestions whenever possible. Thus, despite his personality, he can be the perfect executioner of all his creator's tasks without misunderstanding his intentions. In that regard, he was able to deeply grasp and understand the extent of his creator's ways and motivation of achieving victory without seeing one's defeat as a loss but a win. Due to his flexible ability as a Doppelgänger, he is a shrewd person in every way possible such as adopting the duties in and out of Nazarick.

Like other inhabitants of Nazarick, Pandora's Actor is loyal to the Forty-One Supreme Beings. However, he is completely devoted to Ainz, his creator, and would even fight the other guild members if ordered to. He is a boastful individual, willing to go out of his way and brag about the awesomeness of his creator's masterful intellect and foresight. Nonetheless, he is capable of showing restraint if need be for the sake of not disrespecting about his master Ainz when in the presence of other fellow NPCs like himself. He also shares a similar fondness with his creator in finding and obtaining new items of unknown origin much to his delight and excitement.

Background

Pandora's Actor was created by Momonga himself during his chunibyou-phase. The reason Momonga created Pandora's Actor was neither for the sake of battle nor for business. Instead, it was for the main purpose of preserving the identity of Ainz Ooal Gown, leaving behind the images of his guild members.

His backstory made note of how he happens to have a liking for managing magic items as his hobby. It was Momonga's original intent to design Pandora's Actor in such a way, so he would not find it strange to be alone in the Treasury, making him believe his position as Treasurer was a heavenly job. However, for some reason, his obsession for cataloging items seemed to have reached the level of a fetish.

For the Web Novel, while in the Treasury, under his creator Ainz's orders, he would not only perform experimentation with several magic items but conducting tests on various magics and spells as well. This was done so to differentiate the scaling of magic power, using it to find noticeable differences that aren't unique to YGGDRASIL after Nazarick's arrival in the New World.[1]

Chronology

The Emissary of the King Arc

Main article: The Emissary of the King Arc

According to Ainz, every Floor Guardian lives in a place filled with their respective creator’s feelings who made it for them. Recalling his past experience during the old days of YGGDRASIL back then, when he finished designing Pandora's Actor, Ainz also gave him a fully-equipped Treasury to live in. Ainz noted the place was meant to be a secret base just for the two of them to hang out there.[2]

The Bloody Valkyrie Arc

Main article: The Bloody Valkyrie Arc

When Ainz entered the Mausoleum with Albedo, Yuri Alpha, and CZ2I28 Delta, Pandora's Actor appeared before them while disguised as Tabula Smaragdina. He was ordered to revert to his true form before Albedo could attack. After the introductions have been made, Ainz ordered Pandora's Actor to retrieve the World Items. Before complying with his creator's command, Pandora's Actor sensed something was amiss outside the Treasury, requested that he would be permitted to leave the Treasury and be given additional duties.

Though Pandora's Actor understood he was considered to be his master's trump card that contains his comrade's forms and abilities, he believed it would be a waste of his abilities to remain idle in the Treasury. Finding some rough reasoning with his creation, Ainz reluctantly accepted his request and allow Pandora's Actor to travel to the Throne Room in order to move valuables from the vaults of the Treasury. To do this, Ainz gifted him the Ring of Ainz Ooal Gown, making Pandora's Actor the third NPC to receive such an honor.

On the other hand, Ainz held a private conversation with Pandora's Actor for a short while away from the other NPCs who were with him. Amidst the discussion between them, Pandora's Actor answered an important question from Ainz that he will fight any of the Supreme Beings if his creator commands him to do so. After answering that question, Pandora's Actor was requested by Ainz to stop with his way of saluting and he humbly obeyed his creator's wishes. While responding to Ainz's command in German, he also orders Pandora's Actor not to speak like that in front of him.

When Albedo was ordered by Ainz to hand over the Ring of Ainz Ooal Gown to Pandora's Actor, she still refuses to let go of it which annoys him. He then conveyed Ainz's statement in his own words to Albedo that if she were to bring the ring along, the Avatara would attack her. Ainz then tells Pandora's Actor to direct both the two Pleiades to move some of the treasure to the Throne Room using the ring Ainz gave him. In response, Pandora's Actor inquires Ainz of who will be the one to stay and welcomed his return in the Treasury. Hearing his creator's reply, Pandora's Actor alongside the two Pleiades stood by as their master and Albedo went inside the Mausoleum.[3]

The Show Must Go On! Arc

Main article: The Show Must Go On! Arc

To prepare for the auditions for the role of Juliet, Albedo asked Pandora's Actor for advice in acting. Albedo recalled how the inflection and elongated words of Pandora's Actor was said by mimicking the saying to his creator which startles him embarrassingly. She decided to act on the advice provided by Pandora's Actor in her own way. Nonetheless, Ainz advised the Overseer that the less of his NPC's advice she listens to, the better.[4]

The Sealed Evil Tree Arc

Main article: The Sealed Evil Tree Arc

In preparation for the Floor Guardians to combat Zy'tl Q'ae, Ainz orders Albedo to get Pandora's Actor to transform and observe Narberal via magic while they perform a live experiment with the evil tree.[5]

The Lizard Man Heroes Arc

Main article: The Lizard Man Heroes Arc

Ainz urges Albedo to relay his order to Pandora's Actor that he must throw one of Clementine's Stilettos into the treasure room’s Shredder to see what happens. Ainz refers to the Shredder as an Exchange Box and wants Pandora's Actor to transform into Nearata, so he could use his special Merchant ability for it. In other words, the task which Pandora's Actor must carry out is to appraise the value of Clementine's stilettos.[6]

In preparation for Nazarick's demonstration of power against the Lizardmen Alliance, Ainz stated that the alarm network of Pandora's Actor will be transferred over to their side.[7]

Ainz Raises Money Arc

Main article: Ainz Raises Money Arc

When Shalltear managed to successfully form a thorough analysis of the gold coins, Demiurge suspected her of being a Doppelgänger. In response to Demiurge's answer, Mare then started to believe that the one impersonating Shalltear is Pandora's Actor. However, Demiurge later dismissed such an idea, telling Mare that the current Shalltear standing before them was actually the original and not a Doppelgänger.[8]

The Men in the Kingdom Arc

Main article: The Men in the Kingdom Arc

After being informed about Sebas' possible betrayal, Ainz had ordered Pandora's Actor to disguise himself as him in order to confirm whether Sebas' allegiance still lies with their master.

Once it had been determined that Sebas Tian's loyalty was still intact, he left the area with Victim to be transported back to Nazarick and report this information to his creator for playing his role well. At the last second, however, Pandora's Actor fluttered his cape around just like he normally would as usual without fooling Sebas while under that form. Luckily, Sebas has only found it to be just odd for someone like Ainz to do so, and as such did not see through Pandora’s Actor’s disguise.[9]

According to Demiurge's plan, Pandora's Actor is given the job of handling the matter of transportation during Nazarick's invasion of Re-Estize. In other words, he managed to secure the wealth and goods from within the warehouse district and later transport them to Nazarick.[10]

The Invaders of the Large Tomb Arc

Main article: The Invaders of the Large Tomb Arc

After saying how he feels about the people on the streets of Arwintar, Ainz does not believe he was somehow following Pandora's Actor's lead. He happens to differentiate his own line from Pandora's Actor who once stated that "it's a sign of something."[11]

Wanting to personally observe the operations that were being carried out to test out Nazarick's defenses while not willing to abandon his position in the workers camp, Ainz had ordered Pandora's Actor to disguise himself as Momon with Nabe by his side, so he would freely be able to carry out his plans without arising any suspicion.[12]

After some time passes, Pandora's Actor told Ainz that the Adventurers outside Nazarick have decided to wait for another day, or until something changes within the ruins, before leaving. Pandora's Actor said that this kind of situation happened because he was the one who had suggested the idea to the adventurers. According to Pandora's Actor, when none of the Workers returned even by morning, it had caused a panic amongst the adventurers, and they had hurriedly reported it to him.

With the task of searching for other guild members of Ainz Ooal Gown set as his highest priority, Ainz suggests Albedo to have Pandora's Actor listed as a potential member for joining her unit which she accepts.[13]

The Magic Caster of Destroy Arc

Main article: The Magic Caster of Destroy Arc

Once the massacre at Katze Plains came to an end, Ainz Ooal Gown and his forces took control of E-Rantel following the war. Taking on the role of Momon, Pandora's Actor stopped Albedo from killing a young boy who showed transgression against the Sorcerer King, Ainz. Albedo later demanded that Momon is put in charge as the city's enforcer to further hide the fact that both Momon and Ainz are the same person.[14]

The Ruler of Conspiracy Arc

Main article: The Ruler of Conspiracy Arc

Albedo entrusted Pandora's Actor with the role of controlling the Great Tomb of Nazarick and E-Rantel as her substitute while she pays a visit to the Royal Capital of Re-Estize.

Later, Ainz confronts Hamsuke and asks her if Pandora's Actor is in the guest house right now. Unsure of his whereabouts, she told Ainz that Pandora's Actor often rides the coaches and wagons which the humans of E-Rantel prepare for him without her.

Hearing Hamsuke's answer, Ainz remembers that Pandora's Actor has taken such transport in order to gather more information from people who are unable to speak honest thoughts to the Sorcerer King, but to Momon instead. This way, once Pandora's Actor is able to learn enough about how the people of E-Rantel feel towards Ainz, he can then share these details with his master.

At last, Pandora's Actor was approached by Ainz Ooal Gown to have a talk about any problems concerning his role as Momon. Pandora's Actor responded to Ainz, stating that he was unable to take care of handling magic items made by Ainz's guild members ever since he took on the role of Momon. Hence, he desperately begs Ainz to grant him more time with those said items to quell his suffering. As Ainz recalls the fact he made him that way, Pandora's Actor affirmed his statement.

Additionally, Ainz tells Pandora's Actor that he should've been given permission to return to Nazarick every day. However, Pandora's Actor stated otherwise, that he did not receive permission from his creator to return to the Treasury. Understanding his dilemma, Ainz promises Pandora's Actor that he will inform Shalltear and have her hand the Ring of Ainz Ooal Gown over to him in order to teleport back to the Treasury. At the same time, Ainz grants Pandora's Actor authorization to work on his guild members' weaponry and equipment as well as reminding him not to damage them.

While so, Ainz informs Pandora's Actor about changing his behavior and telling him that he is quite pleased with his hard work. Ainz also finally acknowledges Pandora's Actor as his son while hoping he can grow up and work to surpass him. Moved by his creator's statement, Pandora's Actor refers to Ainz as "father" and vows to him that he will live up to his expectation.

On the other hand, Ainz orders Pandora's Actor not to speak of what happened during their meeting to anyone else and should be kept a secret between the two along with Fifth. Pandora's Actor obliged to Ainz's words, stating that he is willing to sacrifice himself for his sake if the need to arises. Before Ainz left, Pandora's Actor asked his father how people of E-Rantel are worried about where this country is heading and what kind of rule it will be under in the future. As an example, he speculates if Ainz were to adopt a policy of expansion, humans fear that they will be dragged into a war with other nations, etc.[15]

The Pleiades Day Arc

Main article: The Pleiades Day Arc

When she saw the disturbing state her younger sister Narberal was in, Yuri Alpha thought about the face of Pandora's Actor. In her mind, she makes a striking comparison between the female doppelgänger and the Treasury's Area Guardian due to how similar their faces are. However, she shortly thereafter cast out the mental image of their two faces overlapping with one another and look at it in a different way.[16]

The Craftsman of Dwarf Arc

Main article: The Craftsman of Dwarf Arc

Ainz thought of sending Pandora's Actor over to visit the Dwarf Kingdom and conduct trade negotiations with them. However, Ainz had to rethink his approach, considering that by giving Pandora's Actor such a mission, it will result in not having anyone left to administer the Sorcerer Kingdom while the latter is away. Because of this, Ainz has decided not to follow through with the idea of letting Pandora's Actor move freely despite the latter being the ideal choice in terms of intelligence, adaptability, and other areas.

Nonetheless, Ainz has finally reached a decision, deciding that he will be the one person who needs to go and form official trade connections with the dwarves rather than Pandora's Actor. When looking for someone to bring along with him on his journey to the Dwarf Kingdom, he considers Sebas Tian as one of those candidates. However, he believes it would be fine to bring that butler out as long as Pandora’s Actor is around, but the former had some doubts about his fighting ability.

In the future, Ainz considers using Pandora's Actor to set up some sort of system to address the problem of their undead intelligence network. Currently, the underlying problem with making a cohesive network is that the undead gives only vague responses and that their massive numbers created between himself and Pandora's Actor made it difficult to manage. For starters, he have to deal with the problem of all the undead Pandora's Actor created freezing up when the latter is not in his Overlord form.

Furthermore, Ainz has one more task to take care of before setting out to the Dwarf Kingdom which involves him discussing a lot of things with Pandora’s Actor. This was said after he had informed Shalltear Bloodfallen and Aura Bella Fiora of what the two must do and oblige by when preparing for their travel to the dwarven nation.[17]

After entering the Dwarf Kingdom's treasury and finding a lot of items scattered about, Ainz describes how Pandora’s Actor would probably be very happy to see the situation he is in. As he recalled the bizarre attitude of Pandora's Actor, the mental image of Ainz making sure the Treasury’s door was properly locked came to mind.[18]

Nazarick Mythology Arc

Main article: Nazarick Mythology Arc

When each Floor Guardian gets a turn to narrate their mythological story about Ainz, it always happens to be Pandora's Actor who had to take on the main role of playing as his creator. For instance, according to Albedo, Ainz's lines are voiced by Pandora's Actor and then recorded by magic prior to the meeting that took place between the Floor Guardians and their master.[19]

The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom Arc

Main article: The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom Arc

After Ainz killed Vijar Rajandala, Nasrene Belt Cure, and Halisha Ankara, he acquired their magic items and notes how weak and cheap they are. However, Ainz admits that obtaining magic items in the New World makes him happy, but not as happy as Pandora’s Actor would be. Like Pandora's Actor, he accepts the feeling of being able to enjoy the acquisition of magic items too.[20]

When Ainz thought about how to handle the work shift of duties between NPCs, he knows that letting Pandora’s Actor substitute for all of them is dangerous. Hence, Ainz had been working hard towards establishing a vacation system in the Great Tomb of Nazarick to deal with the problem.

During his encounter with Demiurge's summoned Evil Lord Wrath, Pandora's Actor was described as a good example for why it is impossible for their creator to envision what their voice sounds like. Pandora's Actor was a being who does not reflect what Ainz had in mind while creating him back then.

Along the way, Ainz described that for races such as a Greater Doppelgänger, their racial ability had apparently become real enough in the New World to be usable according to the information he had learned from Pandora's Actor.[21]

The Witch of the Falling Kingdom Arc

Main article: The Witch of the Falling Kingdom Arc

Considering that Demiurge is a huge candidate for becoming the head of the intelligence agency, Albedo thought that the only eligible candidate by a far margin who can possibly oppose him would be Pandora’s Actor. She highly favors Pandora's Actor among the few candidates that she had in mind as he can potentially compete with Demiurge on attaining a position of power in the intelligence agency. However, she immediately thought that it wouldn't be impossible for Pandora's Actor to learn of Albedo’s true intentions. If that were to happen, she believes supporting Pandora's Actor in such a position will be a great cause of concern and thus, alternatively considers her own sisters as candidates too beside him.[22]

While strolling the main streets of E-Rantel, Pandora's Actor who is acting as Momon follows his master's plan by getting himself, Nabe and the Sorcerer King to walk alongside each other cooperatively. This was done so to clear up the misunderstandings or false rumors about him and Ainz where it was supposedly believed by some that Momon is already dead and that the person posing as the adventurer inside the armor is simply an undead.

When Pandora's actor was informed by Ainz that the Adventurer's Guild of E-Rantel is beginning to recruit other races besides humans, the former promptly agrees on his master's assessment of the new change happening in the Sorcerer Kingdom. He noted how Ainz's creation of undead minions have encouraged the demihumans to rethink the idea of following the career path of a common soldier as no longer probable to them. Taking this into account, Pandora's Actor felt that any demihuman with a talent in the field of either research, manufacturing, or art would then be more ready to use it to their fullest potential without problem.[23]

During the war between the Sorcerer Kingdom and the Re-Estize Kingdom, it was decided by Ainz that Pandora's Actor will have his battle at the capital city of their enemy nation. Pandora's Actor was to act as bait in Ainz's place. For that reason, he was not given a World Item to equip and protect himself from other World Item users in order to lure out strong foes such as them. While waiting for his foes to arrive alongside Albedo, he shows his unease on whether he can successfully execute his master's plan. At the same time, he was stunned to see how flawed Azuth's strategy was to fly over to their camp with a chance of being seen by his fellow Nazarick denizens who are in the city. Despite questioning the Red Drop adventurer's way of thinking, he decides to reserve his judgement for later when the foe arrives to his camp.

Since they are at the third stage of the plan, Pandora's Actor told Albedo that he will accomplish his duties to the best of his abilities while acting the role as Ainz. Later on, Pandora's Actor posing as the Sorcerer King Ainz was met by the arrival of their one and only enemy, Azuth of Red Drop who appeared at their camp. Seeing that he was able to vanquish several of his undead and damage him with a divine [Fire Storm] spell, Ainz (Pandora's Actor) then ordered Albedo to confront and battle this foe head-on. Leaving the Powered Suit user for Albedo to chase after, the now alone Pandora's Actor as Ainz senses another enemy approaching behind him via teleportation. Having temporarily impeded his opponent's arrival with a counter spell, Pandora's Actor used this chance to buff himself and prepare some trap spells until his foe arrived face-to-face before him.

In his battle against this unknown high-leveled warrior, Pandora's Actor while under the form of Ainz tries to strike a conversation with him to the point of provoking the latter in the hopes of getting a reaction from it. Hoping to gather intel, Pandora's Actor made several attempts to converse reasonably with Riku every now and then at certain intervals over the course of their battle from beginning to end. At the same time, when battling said armor, Pandora's Actor would intentionally throw the fight on purpose in order to carefully analyze his opponent's advantages and favors. Under Ainz's order, he had to draw out the fight as long as he possibly can, looking to obtain as much information as he could surrounding the armor's abilities and the identity of the person using it.

While exchanging blows with the warrior, there were a few times when Pandora's Actor would run away from the battle temporarily to test and experiment the effects of the warrior Riku's peculiar spell, [World-Separating Wall]. Throughout the battle between them, Pandora's Actor did not waste any time analyzing and deducing the manner of every move Riku act around his floating weapons while gauging it in combat. This became even more apparent when Pandora's Actor chose to become a spectator from the sideline after summoning the Doom Lord to assist him in his place to fight Riku. All in all, Switching between vanguard and backliner position with his summoned monsters like Elemental Skull, Pandora's Actor made sure not to forget in testing which spells are effective and ineffective against someone such as Riku.

Later, the fight between Pandora's Actor and Riku Aganeia came to an immediate end when Albedo intervened to save him. With Albedo arriving to the scene of the battle and overwhelming Riku for a brief period of time, this forced the latter to flee quickly while Pandora's Actor and she later teleported back to the Great Tomb of Nazarick after they successfully finished their mission as planned.

Back at Nazarick, Pandora and Albedo went to the 9th Floor where they were greeted by Ainz Ooal Gown, along with Shalltear and Demiurge. Pandora's Actor then undid his transformation and like Albedo kneeled before the the Sorcerer King. He and Albedo were congratulated for their work which Pandora's Actor humbly accepted. After returning the various back-up items he used as "Ainz" the shapeshifter was asked to give a detail report on his opponent. The Treasurer complied to his creator's order, stating that the warrior Riku is a tank whose level he estimated to be around 90. He reasons that this was due to how magic was generally ineffective against Riku, which was why he had judged him to be of that level which was met with disapproval from other analytics like Albedo and Shalltear who thought differently.

While so, Pandora's Actor had also provided a reenactment of his conversations and the way he acted with Riku. Albedo was less than pleased as he while under the form of his creator had kneeled and begged to Riku, making Ainz look weak causing Pandora's Actor to feel guilty for bringing such shame to his master. Ainz however thinks otherwise, believing that the performance was executed perfectly as Riku had been effectively fooled into thinking "Ainz Ooal Gown" was weaker than him. Hearing this, Pandora's Actor can't help but admire his creator's drive for victory to go to great lengths in staking his own reputation, not caring less about it all against a powerful foe so that he could gain intel.

On the other hand, the subject of the barrier that prevented Pandora's Actor from leaving was brought up. Pandora's Actor still could not figure out what that phenomena was, and why Albedo was able to penetrate it so easily whereas he was trapped inside the dome. It was Ainz who provided Pandora's Actor with the clarity that Albedo was able to enter it is solely due to her World Item she had equipped which the shapeshifter did not have on him. Additionally, proof also laid in the fact that Ainz who was observing Pandora's Actor battle with Riku noticed that the barrier could only be perceived when holding a World Item. He later inquired his master on his thoughts on the [World-Isolating Barrier] and asked whether it was a special skill that only higher level beings like Ainz could obtain. Pandora's Actor was given insight from his creator that it would be impossible to accomplish what Riku did through the same system their powers came from.

Through his creator, he learned that it was possible to achieve the effect through the expenditure of HP which could be an activation condition for a World Item. However, when Pandora's Actor confirmed that Riku's HP wasn't continuously reduced to maintain the barrier, Ainz told the former that he had never heard of such a World Item capable of that feat. Pandora's Actor and the other Floor Guardians listened to Ainz's theory that Riku's powers may be unique to this world and is shocked when his master believed that losing to Riku the next time would be necessary to gain more information. While it was a perfectly logical conclusion, if there was a possibility that their master could not be revived, then Pandora's Actor could not fathom what would happen to Nazarick. He soon noticed that the other Floor Guardians were in the same distress but tried to ignore the shame they all felt.

The discussion turned to the identity of Riku Aganeia, on whether he was a member of the Thirteen Heroes or the Platinum Dragon Lord, Pandora's Actor, like Demiurge, believed they had too little information. Just as Ainz Ooal Gown was about to dismiss the meeting and give Pandora's Actor new orders, Shalltear inquired if the offer in taking Riku as a subordinate was true. Ainz admitted that it was a lie, as he was unsure if he could reign such a potential threat under his control. However if Riku did come to them he would allow Albedo to handle the affair and trust her judgement. Pandora's Actor hearing this accepted it as the truth, believing all that his master said was undoubtedly a premonition of something greater to come which not even he himself could fathom. From his point of view, Pandora's Actor thought that perhaps his creator Ainz was probably contemplating about Albedo's abilities and how Riku could factor into his master plans. Not only that, but he also compared it like the destruction of the Kingdom and the vassalization of it to show the entire world the stark difference in treatment for those that oppose or submit to the Sorcerer King.[24]

Trivia

  • Most of the other NPCs are jealous at Pandora's Actor since he was created by Ainz (Albedo is especially jealous of this fact), believing that an NPC like him created by Ainz, who stands above all the other Supreme Beings and the only one to never abandon them, holds a special place in Nazarick. Ainz, on the other hand, is extremely embarrassed of Pandora's Actor and sees him as a reminder of his dark past (chuunibyou phase). He felt that the very existence of Pandora's Actor brings him to shame, given how lame he thinks the NPC is now.
  • As the creator of Pandora's Actor, Ainz thinks that every single movement he made was designed to scream, "I am cool!"
  • In the Great Tomb of Nazarick, Pandora's Actor was only permitted to travel between the Throne Room and the Treasury. However, under Ainz's order, he still manages to go outside Nazarick every now and then when acting as the adventurer Momon in his creator's stead.
  • While Ainz noted how the NPCs are behaving like their creators, he was surprised at himself when he noticed that he is behaving the same way as Pandora Actor upon getting the chance to appraise the magic items he took from the three powerful demi-humans affiliated with the Demi-Human Alliance.
  • Currently, Pandora's Actor possesses the highest amount of screen time appearance in the main Light Novel series, Pure Pure Pleiades series, and Isekai Quartet series than his Anime and Manga counterparts.
  • Pandora's Actor's name and theme is seemingly based off of the Greek Myth of Pandora's Box, where a single mortal woman named Pandora was gifted a box that contained all of the world's evils within by the Gods and was specifically told by them not to open it, but due to the Pandora's immense curiosity, she opened it and released all the contents to the world.
    • This, in turn, is the basis to Pandora's Actor's role as the Area Guardian of Nazarick's Treasury, of which he is tasked with protecting the 11 World Items currently housed within that all possess the power to completely alter or possibly even destroy the world.

  • (To Ainz): "Ohhhh… Ainz-sama. To think you would refer to me as your child!"
  • (To Ainz): "Ah, about that, could you hold on a little? Since we meet rarely, there is a matter I would like to ask you, Father. May I know how you intend to rule this Sorcerer Kingdom?"
  • (To Ainz about humans in E-Rantel): "Many humans have their doubts about the path upon which you intend to take this country, Father. For instance, if you wish to adopt a policy of expansion, they fear that they will be sent onto the battlefield, and so on."
  • (To Ainz about the Sorcerer Kingdom): "Ainz-sama, it is exactly as you have surmised. Those demihumans, upon witnessing the undead Ainz-sama had created, must have thought that the career of a common soldier was no longer feasible. Those with talents in the arts, manufacturing, and research would then be more inclined to utilize said talents to their maximum potential."
