Spoiler Alert Spoiler Alert: WARNING! This page happens to contain a lot of heavy spoilers that are all originated from the Overlord author, Kugane Maruyama and his collection of written works. Anime-only watchers and Manga-only readers, please take some time off to reflect it over for a bit before choosing to expose yourself on reading the information below recklessly.

NoImage Alert Judging from the current state of this page, there is no available image on the Overlord Fandom as of yet to help emphasize its appearance. Since it is lacking visuals, this article requires an image for the first time, the kind which should be high quality and distinguishable. You could go out of your way to assist the Overlord Wiki by adding an official image that came from any Overlord adaptation to it.

Vesture Kloff Di Laufen (ヴェスチャー・クロフ・ディ・ローファン) was a former adamantite-ranked adventurer and the mentor of Gazef Stronoff.


Vesture is described as an elder that had to be a warrior from his appearance. He wore typical dojo attire, black from the waist down and light blue from the waist up. He had a full head of white, not a single strand of hair was black. His arms were slender, as expected of his age, yet they did not sag and were thin yet hard like steel. His eyes were beast-like and perceptive.


Considering his position in owning a school and having train disciples under him, he most likely bears a teacher-like mindset. According to one of his disciples, he shows concern for whatever grand scheme the Sorcerer King was up to behind the scene. Vesture even thoughtfully considers the future of what his legacy will be if he was to die. For instance, he is willing to let a male disciple of his escape alive alongside the other orphan children and have that person pass on Vesture's swordsmanship skills taught to him.


Vesture was an accomplished adventurer in his time. Thirty years ago, he was part of an adamantite adventurer team that braved the depths of the northern Tob Forests to retrieve a rare herb from Zy'tl Q'ae with two mithril adventurer teams.

After he retired, Vesture established a swordsmanship school for pupils he chose himself. He personally trained the future Warrior-Captain through a hellish regimen of sword training and lectures.

At the war conference in the Re-Estize Kingdom, Vesture's name was brought up as one of the retired adamantite adventurers that exist in the capital.[3] Later, his history is further explained by Brain Unglaus to Climb during Gazef Stronoff's duel with Ainz Ooal Gown.[4]

The Witch of the Falling Kingdom Arc

Vesture had grown concerned with his legacy and wanted to ensure his swordsmanship continued to be passed down. He thus allowed two of his disciples to teach orphan children alongside Brain Unglaus. He was also wary of the Sorcerer Kingdom's seeming lack of movement despite having declared war.[5]

When the Sorcerer Kingdom laid siege to the Royal Capital, Vesture and his disciples guarded the Magician's Guild to prevent Jaldabaoth's item from falling into enemy hands. Thus, when Aura arrived to retrieve it, they confronted her. However, the old swordsman grew increasingly frustrated by the Floor Guardian's attitude and vowed not to let her claim the item. Now knowing the item was indeed there, Aura gave Vesture a chance to flee, but he stubbornly refused and prepared for battle; only to be killed by an arrow to the head.[6]

Abilities and Powers

So far, it was revealed that Vesture is a highly-skilled martial artist and swordsman. Vesture himself has developed a stronger technique that surpassed the Fourfold Slash of Light. However, Vesture was unable to utilize it in practice due to his advanced age, so he then taught the theory behind it to Gazef Stronoff, who would then go on to develop the Sixfold Slash of Light.

According to the Windflower scripture intel report, he was even one of the five people who could fight Clementine, which was another testament to his power.

Based on the author Maruyama's level ranking, Vesture is ranked above Tira yet falls short below Kullervo Palantynen in terms of levels.[7]

Two swords hung by his waist side and a breastplate covered his torso.


Gazef Stronoff

If Gazef hadn't met the retired adventurer, his fate would have been to become a mercenary. It was Vesture who dragged him into his school and taught him all the skills of the sword, leading him to become the Kingdom's strongest warrior.

Brain Unglaus

Brain presumes Vesture had probably allowed him to hire his disciples due to considering the fact that the former was the one who wielded outstanding swordsmanship. Vesture was suspected by him as someone who wanted to introduce his Six Great Disciples to the mercenary, perhaps making Brain owe him a favor in the process. Hence, the reason behind why Brain did not show much gratitude towards the man. Despite this Brain trained under him and managed to learn the Sixfold Flash of Light.

Aura Bella Fiora

Upon meeting her, Vesture displayed resentment towards Aura due to her being a servant of the Sorcerer King and was prepared to fight her despite her being a child. He also disliked her disrespectful attitude and unwillingness to take him seriously. In the end, Vesture died an honorless death by her hands.

Ainz Ooal Gown

Though he never met him, Vesture displayed resentment towards the Sorcerer King. Most likely because he killed Gazef.


  • When he confronted Aura in the capital, he alone possessed weapons.


  • (To Aura): "You dare babble your mouth, brat. You may not pass beyond this point. I cannot allow that demon-summoning item to fall into the hands of people like you."
