William Wynn Westcott, primarily referred to as Westcott (ウェストコット Uesutokotto?), was a Magician and one of the Three Founders of the Golden Dawn.[1][2][3][4]

Appearance

In the vision shown to Kamijou Touma based on Aleister Crowley's past, Westcott was described as an elderly man wearing a tailored suit with a necktie.[1]

Personality

Being of an older age, Westcott followed ways of thinking which might have been considered old-fashioned at the time of the Golden Dawn. In disagreements with Mathers, he advocated traditions and the need to compromise over Mathers' desire to progress even if it meant entering areas considered heretical.[1][2] Westcott was intent on maintaining his social standing and wanted his cabal to have history with an academic or royal scholar, which led him to forge a letter from Anna Sprengel to give the Golden Dawn more prestige.[1][3][4]

Background

Abilities

Westcott's magical ability was said to be not all that great compared to the likes of Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers and Aleister Crowley, however he still controlled a powerful faction in the Golden Dawn as one of its Three Founders.[4]

This was in part due to possessing a form of quasi-immortality. He maintained this state by distorting the circulation of his life using the attraction of an extremely great being. When describing it, the recreated Mina Mathers omitted the exact details but mentioned Westcott's specialty in forging documents (having forged a letter from Anna Sprengel when creating the cabal to give it more prestige), his access to corpses as a coroner and how parchment was used to converse with demons and transfer souls. A red mass in the center of his chest apparently contained Westcott's soul. Though he never had doubts in it, this quasi-immortality didn't save him from death at the hands of Imagine Breaker.[4]

Westcott also had medical experience and capabilities as a coroner of Scotland Yard.[1][4] It can be assumed that Westcott has some degree of alchemical knowledge, being described by Mathers as having brought Alchemy back at the end of the 19th century.[1]
