Here is her character description, via the game’s official website:
One of only five magicians who exist in the world. Successor to the Fifth Magician. Overall, she is not considered a skilled magician. However, when it comes to “destructive” power, she is unrivaled in her talents. The sight of her raining down bullets like hot geysers has also given her the direct, yet rather tasteless nickname, “Magic Gunner.” Who she learned it from is unknown, but she is also familiar with martial arts, and has a battle style that could be considered a hybrid of those martial arts and magic.
She encountered Shiki on her travels. She gives him his glasses that suppress his Mystic Eyes, and teaches him the value of living things and how to handle things. For that reason, Shiki respects her and calls her his teacher. She’s a difficult person to pin down. She believes in justice, is unreliable, and a vagabond.
Dead Apostle Noel unleashes her spears (bells) to counter Ciel’s Black Keys as they rain down. As they enter a standoff, Dead Apostle Noel activates “Skewered Pork” and then her “Dazzling Echo” set technique to stop Ciel in her tracks!
Dead Apostle Noel: Battle Style
She restrains opponents with projectiles and traps, in a battle style evocative of a dancing butterfly.
Ciel: Battle Style
A well-balanced fighter with many different skills for different situations and opponents, able to move freely across the stage with a huge variety of attacks.
While normally unqualified to become a Dead Apostle due to lacking the potential, only reaching Rank II, Dr. Arach was able to artificially induce her transformation into a powerful Rank VI Dead Apostle. As a Dead Apostle, Noel can create large stakes that look more staves that she can throw as projectiles. These stakes can be chained together and used to attack a target with a large number of them at once. She can also summon large numbers of The Dead, often around fifty, to attack her opponents.
Upon being turned by Dr. Arach through the scientist’s experiments through her special drug Idea Replica, Noel also gained the Dead Apostle Ancestor Rita Rozay-en‘s Mystic Eyes of Roses, the world’s most beautiful, most unsightly Mystic Eyes; Rita’s Idea Blood. The eyes allows her create a telepathic connection between herself and her target, allowing her to either attack her target by projecting her traumatic memories into their minds or by sealing the victim’s mind within her own. When activated, her eyes turn to crimson and roses fill her target’s vision. However, as Noel’s Mystic Eyes of Roses are merely a replica of Rita’s, all Ciel needed was enough magical energy to deflect the eyes. It is implied that Dr. Arach’s procedure somehow granted Noel some of Rita Rozay-en’s other abilities, or those of a vampire from her lineage, as she also gains the power to sprout thorny vines from her person.
After having been mortally wounded by Ciel, Noel injects herself with the Idea Replica shot that Arach warned would kill her, causing her body to erupt into a storm of thorny vines that Noel tries to lunge into Ciel.
