The 07 Ghosts
The manga later reveals that he was originally born into the Krat Family, being a descendant of the ghost Profe, and after he died began serving as one of the Seven Ghosts. Labrador is the Ghost known as Profe, the one that is able to see one's future.
In the final manga chapter, he became an ordinary human and lost his Ghost powers.
Labrador was born on 8 January into the Krat Family. His father, who had led the Krat family during its golden era, died by the time Labrador was a teenager. Nothing is known about his mother. His home when he was human, the Krat House, is one of the Seven Houses of God and the God House of Profe. Labrador's name when he was human was Ilyusha Krat.
Labrador spent most of his time in his greenhouse, occasionally also helping his uncle, who worked as a healer and medicine-maker. For generations, his bloodline was shown to have the power to be able to see into the future, being able to see medicines to heal illnesses. However, their precognitive visions were misleading and disguised an unhappy outcome.
Lem, Labrador's childhood friend, and Lem's younger sister, Lirin, were orphans that the Krat Family adopted. The three of them were close friends, and Lirin said that she would marry Labrador when she was older. But Lirin was a sickly child, suffering from an unnamed, presumably terminal, illness, and Labrador's prophecies of herbs were the only things that had kept her alive for so long. One day she fell very ill and Labrador knew she was going to die as her illness could not be cured. Lem goes to see Labrador's uncle, who mentions the Flower of Eden - a mystical flower that is said to be not only able to heal any illness, but also any sadness.
Lem rushes to Labrador and asks him about the Flower of Eden. Labrador only smiles and nods. A few days later, a sealed letter filled with petals reaches Lem. The letter is written; "If you burn these petals as incense, Lirin would definitely be happy." Lem does as the letter says and Lirin expresses that she feels much better. Grateful, Lem rushes to Labrador's greenhouse, only to discover that the place has been sealed off from the public with tape by the Imperial Guard, because Labrador has been devoured by the forbidden flower that should not blossom - the Flower of Eden. Labrador is sealed off for being a danger, since he has devoured the maid that found him in this state, and Lem is stopped by the guards when he rushes towards Labrador.
Later, it was revealed that Labrador actually suffered from the same illness as Lirin.
Death and reincarnationEdit
As Labrador tries to reach out to Lem, Lem denies knowing Labrador so the petals he had would not be confiscated by the guards and so he could continue to make the medicine to save Lirin's life. Unable to destroy the plant, the Imperial Guard moves it to the North pole where it was frozen. It is revealed that Lirin died anyway, but her death helped scientists research the disease she had been suffering from to help others with the same condition. Blinded by grief, Lem made a pact with a Kor and sealed Labrador's body and Profe's soul together, calling it 'his most precious treasure in the world', and making Labrador the Ghost Profe.
The Barsburg ChurchEdit
Labrador first appears flying his Hawkzile along one of the chasms between Districts 1 and 7 when he, as well as the other two Bishops, Castor and Frau, encounter Teito falling from the sky. When Teito crashes into Frau and Frau's Hawkzile also crashes, he runs to Frau's side and helps him get Teito to the Church where he introduces himself to a frightened Teito.
Flower of protection and the KorEditLabrador is next seen giving Teito the flower of protection, something which disturbs Castor. Labrador is the Bishop tasked with helping Mikage recover, and is the one who notices that Mikage only has half a soul.
|“||The flowers are still astir...||”|
—Labrador, sensing danger within the Church.
He next appears with the other two Bishops, Castor and Frau, when confronting the elderly man possessed by a Kor. He catches Teito as he falls, then leaves with Castor and the Old Man. Despite the Kor being destroyed, Labrador is still worried.
|“||Mysterious things have been happening... Very soon, someone will come after that child. They will come to crush his world.||”|
—Labrador, predicting Mikage's 'disappearance'.
Labrador later confides in the other Bishop's that he predicts Mikage will soon 'disappear' as he only has half a soul. Labrador reveals he knows someone is hunting Teito, yet does not know whom, but is sure it is not Mikage. The Bishops decide to continue to watch Mikage in case the situation takes a turn for the worse. Labrador is in the baptism ceremony when Mikage dies.
Labrador is present when Frau gives Teito Mikage's reincarnation.
Bishop's Apprentice Exam ArcEdit
Frau's arrest and confrontation with HaruseEditLabrador receives word of Frau's imprisonment in Light Dungeon from his flowers and he quickly informs the others.
Later he notices several guards that possess fake clergy passes and uses his plants to restrain and sedate them. When Haruse arrives, Labrador confronts him and infects him with a parasitic plant that eats away at the Wars.
Bastien's funeral takes place as normal. Labrador, along with Bishops Frau and Castor discusses the possibility of any Warsfeil remaining in the Barsburg Church- since Bastien's death has restored the protective barrier around the Church.
When a nun approaches Frau, suspecting him to be one of the Seven Ghosts, Castor elbows Frau causing him to drop a porn book to dispel any notions that he is a guardian of the Church. Confident that their secret is safe, the three Bishops make their escape.
Capture of the Eye of MikhailEdit
Labrador is not present during the battle for the Eye but appears at its climax, when the Eye of Mikhail has been taken, and reminds Ayanami that military activity in the 7th District is forbidden. Ayanami, in turn, tells Labrador the ships intend to pass through peacefully on their way to Antwort. Since the existence of the Eye is a secret, Labrador is forced to let them pass- and shows them the shortest route out of the district.
Eve of the examEdit
|“||Welcome back, Bishop Lance. Great job on your service as a touring Bishop.||”|
—Labrador, welcoming Lance.
Labrador appears before Teito Klein and Hakuren Oak as the two boys have met Bishop Lance. Unlike the other two Bishops, Labrador welcomes Lance warmly. He is pleased with his present Lance got him from the 3rd District, and smiles when viewing the photo album he bought Frau.
Teito's escape from the ChurchEdit
|“||In your eyes there is someone who holds a double-edged sword- to bring about divine protection or self destruction. If you do not face the darkness you will let yourself fall into ruin and become the latter.||”|
—Labrador, warning Teito of the dangers he will face on his journey.
Hausen House ArcEdit
Labrador appears briefly during the Hausen House arc, falling asleep outside amongst the tree roots after getting too cold to get up. Ouida, his new apprentice, panics until he(Labrador) is found, prompting Castor to chastise him for sleeping outside.
Raggs Castle ArcEdit
|“||A good luck charm, so that your journey will go smoothly, and so that you may always love your friends.||”|
—Labrador, wishing Hakuren good luck.
Labrador was in the garden with Castor when Hakuren Oak rushed towards them. Hakuren informed them he had received a letter commanding him (Hakuren) to return to the 1st District to serve as tutor to the Imperial princess. Castor congratulated Hakuren on the news and encourages him to take the offer, but after Hakuren protests, Labrador offered him a good luck charm, so his "journey will go smoothly".
When Ayanami infiltrated the Church, Labrador fought with Ayanami, saying that what he (Ayanami) truly desired, he cannot hold in his hands again. He was rescued by Castor, who lost an arm in the process, when Verloren took over Ayanami's personality and became hysterical.
He and Castor met with Frau and Teito at one of the stops during the race. He aided Frau when he was deeply injured.
In the ballroom, he challenged Hyuuga to a fight while Ayanami fought with Castor. Labrador attempted to trick his opponent with an illusion, but it failed when Hyuuga stabbed himself to regain focus, and he was defeated and knocked unconscious.
Later, when Labrador regains consciousness, he finds out that he and Castor have been trapped in a prison made specifically for the Ghosts. In a flashback of Hyuuga's, it is revealed that he offered a darkness-eating flower seed to Hyuuga, to help Hyuuga protect his 'important person', and Hyuuga accepted the seed, despite Labrador warning him that he (Hyuuga) might be devoured.
In manga chapter 93, Labrador and Castor manage to escape their prison. When an indignant Kuroyuri shouts after them, he advises him/her and Haruse to evacuate.
In Kapitel 96, it's revealed that despite what Labrador said to Hyuuga, the darkness-eating flower seed did not devour Hyuuga, but saved his life instead, though it also seems to have deprived Hyuuga of his ability to use black magic.
After Ayanami dies and Teito goes to Seele, Labrador is last seen picnicking with Castor, Fea Kreuz Raggs and Millea Klein. He mentions that he has visited his father's grave and watches Wahrheit Teito Klein play with Burupya.
