Liz Hart is the Playable/Main Character (MC) of Wizardess Heart+.
While her default name is Liz Hart, she can be renamed in-game by the player.
Season 1 to 5: Liz stands at 5'2" (158 cm) with measurements of 31-23-32. Her light brown hair is usually tied into pigtails secured by pink ribbons, with bangs and hair falling loosely around her face. Her eyes are wide and pink. If not wearing her school uniform, she wears her normal clothes, which consist of pink dress with a single neck strap over a yellowish off the shoulder top.
Season 6 forward: Liz is portrayed as a grown woman, with a larger bust this time around. Her hair has gained a lot of volume and is now frequently tied up in her signature pigtails, but with circular bands with Jewels on them, that resemble bracelets in a way. Her eyes now have a sweet down-turned look, and they are a gingery-brown color now.
Liz Hart is an orphaned girl who lost both parents to an epidemic that swept through her village. Between routes/seasons, Liz's parents death diverge in dates, while in Elias's Route they died two years before the beginning of the story, in Joel's Route it happened during Liz's earlier childhood. Liz lived alone in Reitz, a small village in the mountains, and was raised communally by other villagers, viewing them all as an extended family.
Liz's dream since childhood had been to attend Gedonelune Royal Magic Academy, sending applications there for several years. She idolized the great wizard Serge Durandal, who was said to be a great tamer of magical creatures and hoped to follow in his footsteps.
At the beginning of the game, Liz finally receives what appears to be an Acceptance Letter to the school, and quickly departs to fulfill her dream. After arriving at the Academy, she eventually discovers that her acceptance is provisional, relying entirely on her performance in the next thirteen days. After this provisional period, she undergoes a Trial of Judgment, in which a magical scale judges her on whether she will remain as an official student or return home to her village.
Liz also always ends up being paired with a Buddy upon her arrival to the school, her Buddy being the character whose route the player has chosen. However, in the Princess of Crystal arc, for Cerim's route, the two buddy later rather than at the beginning of the route, making it a bit different than all the other routes.
Conflict arises, however, and often makes it difficult for her to focus on her goals, differing depending on what arc is being played.
From season 6 onward she doesn't have a buddy and is focused on her prefect duties and resolving the missions given to her and the others prefects (season6, Klaus II onward); or her prefect trial (only in season 6, Zeus' route). She's shown to have surpassed her Fortitudo class and she even asks Yukiya and Elias to be her deputy prefects in some of the routes (season 7).
Living alone in the countryside in a small village, Liz had grown to be very innocent making her rather gullible/naïve person and easily embarrassed.
When overwhelmed by emotion, Liz becomes forgetful, missing out various crucial details in her studies, canonically becoming a terrible, or clumsy student, for instance, when excited to receive the Acceptance Letter, she does not even read it regarding the provisional terms of her enrollment.
Genuinely kind-hearted and loyal, Liz sees the best in people, with a tendency to think of others before herself. Well-meaning, in acts of bravery and selflessness, she disregards the possibility of potential danger to herself, becoming careless/reckless, not thinking her actions completely. Although, with all difficulties, her attitude is generally optimistic, using her stubbornness to become witty and smart when it counts. Liz firmly believes that the purpose of magic is to make people happy.
At the age of six, Liz Hart manifested magical abilities unexpectedly, becoming able to cast spells as well as a rare magical ability to communicate with animals. In the village, she used her abilities to act as a sort of magical veterinarian, speaking to animals to figure out their problems before casting the appropriate healing spells on them. The villagers viewed her as a dependable and reliable wizard, but in reality, her magic tended to go haywire whenever animals were not involved.
At the beginning of the game, Liz is a very haphazard and novice wizard, most of her magic goes terribly wrong, often transforming things to animal-like effects, nevertheless, Liz was not lacking in pure magical ability, merely the discipline and concentration to control it.
Depending on the route, she discovers one of several potential abilities, including the ability to use powerful Primitive Spells in situations of distress, a time travelling ability that she cannot yet control, a spellsinging ability, and potentially the power to control outcomes through words. Her wand also vary depending on the route.
In the sequels and from season 6 onward, she's more powerful and skilled with her magic and therefore she's looked up by other students. In season 6 she was recommended to be a Prefect and from Klaus II and she becomes officialy one, even giving classes to her former classmates.
- Her age is approximately 17-18.
- Liz is very skilled at piano her mother taught her in some Event Stories like Elias' "His Sweet n' Spicy Special Lesson, or in Spin-offs, 'Gedonelune Music Festival'.
- For the Sol Maiden arc, the Liz was given a penpal by the name Smokey, whom she would only met once she has proven herself to be a great wizard. Smokey was mentioned to be a student in the academy.
- In all the Happy Endings from season 1 to 5 she's accepted in the Academy, but in some routes the Normal Endings can show her being rejected and she has to choose whether to return to her home town or move forward to another goal. This is shown for example in Vincent's route where after she doesn't pass the trial, she tells the headmaster and Professor Schyuler that she wants to work in the Ministry as a secretary or an office job in order to be close to Vincent. Or in Leon's route when she decides to go and live a happy country life where she can still help people with her magic, but it's implied that she doesn't return to her hometown but goes to a far away village.
- Elias, Yukiya and Sigurd are the only characters in their Normal Ending to give Liz another Acceptance Letter to try to pass the Provisional Trial again in order to get accepted into the academy.
- From season 1 to 5 she's always partnered with a Buddy who eventually will turn out to be her beloved boyfriend. But from season 6 onward, she doesn't have a Buddy and she falls in love with the one she spends more time with and desires to get to know better. In Klaus II, although she knew Klaus before becoming a Prefect she confesses that, because she had never been in love, she didn't realize her own feelings for Klaus before, presuming it was only admiration and respect what she felt. It's never mentioned the Buddy System.
