Theo Rakheshir (テオ・ラケシル) is the Guildmaster of the Magician's Guild in E-Rantel.
Theo is an extremely thin and neurotic-looking man wearing a robe.
Though he appears as a calm and wise man, his demeanor only hides a thirst for knowledge and all things magic that border on obsession, his calm composure was momentarily shattered with the appearance of a Sealing Crystal holding a spell of the mythical 8th Tier, that is considered to be a spell of myths and legends. Having lost of sense of self and overwhelmed with excitement, he went as far as licking it all over, then rubbing it against his cheek before being brought back to reason.
Not much is said about Theo's history, but apparently, when he was younger he was a close teammate of Ainzach in their adventurer days.

Theo made his first appearance when the gathering with the mythril ranked adventurer teams of E-Rantel was held. Kralgra, Sky Wolf, Rainbow, and Darkness, along with E-Rantel's mayor Panasolei Gruze Day Rettenmaier and Adventurer Guildmaster Pluton Ainzach to discuss the appearance of the powerful vampire Honyopenyoko. After Momon revealed he was familiar with the vampire, he declared he will slay it, revealing his Sealing Crystal. The item attracts much attention from the guildmaster who wanted to examine it. Upon determining it indeed held an 8th Tier spell, he was against using the item on the vampire believing it to be too much of a waste. But he was overruled by Ainzach.

More than a month after the defeat of the vampire, Theo and Ainzach meet with Momon to personally request him to retrieve a rare herb located in the northern region of the Great Forest of Tob.

Theo at the request of Momon provided him with a map of the Re-Estize Kingdom and the surrounding countries. He sadly told him that the map was of crude quality and thus not very reliable. He also discussed with Ainzach of trying to set up Momon to visit several brothels in order to try to get one of the girls pregnant to try to give him a reason to stay chained to the city.

Before E-Rantel was officially annexed by the Sorcerer Kingdom, the Magician's Guild evacuated most of its members and magical items out of the city, effectively disbanding the guild. Theo remained behind to monitor the political situation with his comrade, Pluton Ainzach. When Ainz paid the Adventurer's Guild a visit to discuss the future of the guild, Theo hid in Ainzach's office overhearing the conversation between the two.
After Ainz left the Adventurer's Guild, Ainzach and Theo reviewed his offer together. Like his friend Ainzach, Theo was captivated by Ainz's speech of the ideal adventurer and their greater roles they would play in the Sorcerer Kingdom. He wholeheartedly agreed that it was lucrative and joked with Ainzach perhaps both would go on a journey together as real adventurers.
Abilities and Powers
Theo Rakheshir holds the highest authority as Guildmaster of the Magician's Guild in E-Rantel.
- Appraise Magic Item
- Detect Enchant
Theo is intrigued by the origins of Momon, not just about his strength and abilities, but also the strange magical crystal that he has in his possession. Through his rationalizations, he theorized that Momon was a prince of a fallen nation that was destroyed by vampires and is now seeking revenge.
Besides holding a key position in E-Rantel, he and Pluton Ainzach are old friends and trust each other with their personal thoughts. He is also aware of Ainzach's devious methods to either keep Momon working for E-Rantel or at least produce an offspring with a prostitute, where he shares a mix feeling about Ainzach’s questionable plan but agrees to go along with it.
Lizzie is Theo's colleague in the study of the magical arts. She was the one who informed him of a new adventurer that had possessed a strange healing potion.
Not much is known about Theo's relationship with Panasolei; however, it has been shown that he respects the man as mayor of E-Rantel.
- In the Anime and Manga, Theo Rakheshir didn't make his appearance in the Adventurer's Guild Meeting.
- (To Ainzach about Momon and Ainz): "Well, that's true. It's disrespectful to compare a hero of humanity to the undead Sorcerer King. However, when you consider that they're both beings of superhuman might, they do seem quite similar. If I had to describe it...yes, I can feel the same presence around them, one which only those extraordinary entities could radiate."
