|"Chiffon Fairchild is not like other Pandora. She's not someone a normal Pandora can beat, no matter how much they Novalize."
Eugene giving Kazuya Aoi a clue as to how powerful Chiffon is in "Connected Consciences"
Eugene, as he appears in the manga.
|English||Z. Charles Bolton|
Nothing is known about Eugene's background. It is not known how he and Chiffon met.
In the manga, Eugene has dark blue hair and light blue eyes. In the anime, he had brown hair and grey eyes. A similarity in appearance between him and Kazuya Aoi has been noted and both Limiters can often be difficult to distinguish when they are seen together in the manga. During his appearances, he is seen wearing the typical uniform for Limiters.
Eugene is normally a nice and polite person who cares for his comrades. This is evident when he stopped André Françoise from trying to find Elizabeth Mably when she was being tortured by the Chevalier. André would have been given disciplinary punishment if he continued. Another circumstance was when he worried for the well-being of Satellizer L. Bridget and Rana Linchen when they were fighting Chiffon.
He is calm and serious during battles. Eugene has expressed a certain level of contempt for whenever Chiffon engages in a fight and would dawn a stoic or even saddened expression on his face. This is because he knows that Chiffon's opponent is going to certainly lose and quite badly.
10th Nova ClashEdit

E-Pandora Project ArcEdit
- Main article: E-Pandora Project Arc
Eugene accompanies Chiffon to the Alaska base. As Elizabeth was being tortured by the Chevalier, he and Chiffon met André in the dining area and commented on how rare it was for him to be alone and without Elizabeth. When André tried to assertively ask for Elizabeth after she was gone for three days, Eugene stopped him from going any further otherwise the Chevalier would have subjected André to disciplinary punishment if he did. When Elizabeth returned later-on, he appears rather shocked at her fragile state.
When Andre insults Chiffon for not helping Elizabeth, Eugene defends her and angrily orders André to stand down.
E-Pandora Rebellion ArcEdit
- Main article: E-Pandora Rebellion Arc
Eugene is with Chiffon when she tried to stop Elizabeth from helping the E-Pandora's. When Chiffon lets them go, he asks if it was okay for her to do so. Chiffon replies that she has no obligation to stop Elizabeth.
Later, Chiffon confronts Satellizer, Rana and Amelia Evans. Eugene presses his palm to his face with the knowledge that Chiffon is going to fight and that it is not going to turn out well for Satellizer and Rana. Satellizer and Rana fight Chiffon with their best efforts, even as far as to open their Holy Gates, while Amelia goes off to find Dr. Scarlett Ohara. Despite all the hits and injuries Satellizer and Rana have seemingly inflicted upon Chiffon, Eugene does not show even the slightest amount of concern for her. All the while, he appeared to be more concerned for Satellizer and Rana.
After Chiffon has knocked out both Satellizer and Rana, Eugene asks her to stop. Chiffon replies by asking him if he felt the presence of a Nova. Eugene, at first, has no clue by what she meant by that.
11th Nova Clash ArcEdit
- Main article: 11th Nova Clash
Eugene is startled by the explosion caused by Amelia's Novalization. Realizing the situation, Eugene asks Chiffon if they will help. However they can't since Chiffon now has to deal with Satellizer and Rana who are resonating with the Nova-fied Amelia. Satellizer impales Chiffon through her chest. Kazuya stops Rana and Satellizer from doing any further damage by using his Freezing. It stops them but it also immobilizes Chiffon.
Eugene establishes an Ereinbar Set with Chiffon and releases a powerful Omnidirectional Freezing Field to paralyse Satellizer and Rana without having to paralyse Chiffon. Eugene then orders Kazuya stop his Freezing thus allowing Chiffon to escape. But Eugene is not able to keep up his Omnidirectional Freezing for long and Satellizer and Rana break free, only to resume the fight. Kazuya becomes quite worried for Chiffon and pleads Satellizer and Rana to stop. However Eugene tells him that they can't hear him and that their minds have sunk to the bottom of their consciences.
As the fight continues, Eugene fears that Satellizer and Rana may get killed by Chiffon. He tells Kazuya that the ones in danger are Satellizer and Rana, not Chiffon, and that no Pandora can ever be Chiffon's equal. Eugene reveals to Kazuya the other purpose of Freezing as an advance method of communication. But Kazuya doesn't understand initially. Eugene tells him that there's no time to explain. He instructs Kazuya to release a Freezing at all directions and to concentrate and focus on the consciousness of Satellizer and Rana. Kazuya succeeds in bringing Satellizer and Rana back to normal and Eugene congratulates him.
Chiffon prepares to fight the Nova-fied Amelia and reveals her Nova form and fully-fledged Volt Weapon. Eugene is not shocked in the slightest unlike Rana, Satellizer and Kazuya. He appeared to be stoic as she did so. When she goes off to fight Amelia on her own and orders Satellizer and Rana to just watch, he does not disagree with her decision. More rather, Eugene retains his stoic expression all throughout Chiffon's battle against Amelia unlike Kazuya, Satellizer and Rana who are all shocked and amazed by what Chiffon did.
They continue to watch the battle as Dr. Gengo Aoi orders everyone to head for shelter when Fully-Novalized Amelia turns into the destructive Type-Q Nova. Eugene tries to call out for Chiffon. When Chiffon started disintegrating, he appeared to be more surprised than concerned. When she finally dies, Eugene is melancholic and has one un-shed tear in his eye.
- Eugene has been shown and has proven himself to be a very skilled and very knowledgeable Limiter, making him truly deserving of being Chiffon's Limiter. A fact which Kazuya acknowledges. He knows the truth about Freezing as an advance means of communication and that it allows minds to synchronize far better than an Ereinbar Set. A fact that only he seems to know of and has passed on to Kazuya Aoi.
- Unlike most Limiters who simply support their partner Pandora by nullifying Freezing Fields and setting up their own, Eugene has been shown to be quite capable of assessing a situation. This is evident when he was quite aware of the extent of just how much of Satellizer and Rana's minds were assimilated by the Nova Form Amelia Evans and when he thought of a way to free Chiffon from Kazuya's Freezing while keeping both Satellizer and Rana 'frozen' with his Freezing.
- He also instructed Kazuya on how to bring back Satellizer and Rana's minds from the control of the Nova, which displays his detailed knowledge on the Freezing Technique.
- He is also knowledgeable of the true purpose of Illusion Turn.
- He is shown to be a capable leader, this is by asserting control and giving out orders to fellow Limiters as shown when he ordered Kazuya to stop his Freezing when he created his own so that Chiffon could escape while at the same time, keeping both Satellizer and Rana immobilized. Despite the situation at the time, he was also able to guide and instruct Kazuya in successfully saving both Satellizer and Rana.
- Like most Limiters, Eugene can perform Freezing, but he needs to first establish an Ereinbar Set with his partner.
- He is capable of creating a powerful Omnidirectional Freezing Field which is equally as strong as the Freezing of Kazuya. However, since Eugene is an ordinary Limiter, he cannot sustain such a powerful Freezing for long periods of time and is left tired afterwards; but can also quickly recover from this fatigue.
Chiffon is the partner Pandora of Eugene. Eugene has great respect for her and stands up for her as shown when he told André to stand down after he had insulted Chiffon. Eugene calls Chiffon "Onee-chan" (Japanese for older sister) which may indicate that they were close. But Chiffon has been shown to treat Eugene rather professionally and did not even think about him when she was sacrificing herself.
He has shown great confidence in her skills as a Pandora. He considers no Pandora to be her equal and knows with absolute certainty that she is unbeatable in any aspect. His confidence in her abilities is so great that he was not even remotely worried for Chiffon's well-being when she was fighting Satellizer and Rana when they began to resonate with the Nova-fied Amelia Evans. But rather, he was more worried for the well-being of Satellizer and Rana.
He is also fully aware of Chiffon's full capabilities including Illusion Turn's true purpose and was not surprised when she revealed her Nova Form and fully deployed Volt Weapon or when she deflected Amelia's attacks at point blank and when she also easily evaded them. This shows that Eugene knew Chiffon quite well.
It is unclear whether or not Eugene and André are friends. However, Eugene got angry at André for insulting Chiffon. But he also prevented Andre from being subjected disciplinary punishment.
Eugene treats Kazuya professionally and calls him by his full name. They are not necessarily friends since they have hardly interacted with each other. Eugene admits that he cannot compete with Kazuya's unique abilities. However Kazuya respects Eugene both as his senior and his fellow Limiter. Kazuya addressed Eugene as "Eugene-Senpai". Because he saw Eugene's amazing abilities as a Limiter, Kazuya finds him to be truly deserving of being Chiffon's Limiter.
- In the 8th episode of the anime, Eugene and Chiffon were seen dancing.
- Eugene is one of the only three Limiters who can unleash an Omnidirectional Freezing.
