Pray Mayer is a Master Knight and one of the main characters of Main Episode-0 Pray. She is currently the strongest known Queen of Beasts in existence, having birthed 2 powerful SS-Class "EX-Type Zeros" and launched invasions against a vast multitude of humanity's planets and colonies. She has nearly single-handedly brought the whole human race to its knees with her incredible, cunning intelligence and martial skill. At the moment, she is the one enemy humanity must unite together and focus against if they are to survive any longer into the future.  


Pray Mayer appears to be a fairly short, almost prepubescent girl with extremely long, waist length blond hair and red eyes.

A notable feature of Pray, is that her pupils are verticle slants, like a cat, rather than circular as with most other humans. Unlike the changes that many human iris undergo during strenous use of Paranormal Powers, this appears to be a permanent part of her anatomy.


Pray Mayer's exact background has not yet been made clear in english chapters.

Young anne pray

Anne and Pray, some time after being adopted as sisters.

What is known is that, before becoming a Knight Trainee, she lived on a planet which appeared to be in a war zone between humans and monsters. The local food supply was non-existent, with most citizens in the city where Pray lived living on charity handouts from the Ancient Church. Law and order upon that planet had broken down and crime was rampant, with gangs of slavers abducting children, and Pray, herself, living by killing and stealing from these gangs. The nearest law enforcement was 2 hours away in another system altogether.

On this planet she lived together with the young Anne Mayer, inside a small, sparsely furnished, wooden shack. She was dedicated to protecting Anne, going as far as killing multiple members of child slavers when they tried to abduct Anne. This however invited a retaliatory strike, made with lethal intent.

Pray Mayer was absent at the time, but Anne was injured in the attack, shot as the slavers fired blindly into their house. Anne was about to be killed when Milo, who ran an orphange (which Pray tended to steal food from) arrived, saving her and handing the criminals over to the police.

Milo then made an offer to have Anne adopted so that she could leave the planet, playing on Pray's protective instincts. Pray accepted under the condition that she would go with Anne, and the two of them were adopted by a woman from the "Mayer Family" who lived on Planet Tao, and were named Anne Mayer and Pray Mayer respectively. It was there and then that Pray began to learn the "Mayer Style" of martial arts, which she would later develop into her own more refined "Pray Style". 



"Don't move, or I'll break your neck."

Pray is the strongest Knight in the universe, but she has an extremely sociopathic personality.

Pray is more than antisocial, being "psychologically disgusted" by humans, resorting to violence when they approach her, and otherwise, insulting them at every opportunity. Pray's universe is one that revolves around Anne; she has a deep hatred of all other humans, and will, without restraint, kill anyone or anything that may threaten Anne. Pray has a Darwinistic view on life; that only the strong survive and the weak should perish. She doesn't understand why Anne always tries to protect people, though she follows along with Anne's desires for fear of losing Anne's love and approval. In this manner, her concern over Anne can be considered almost as an obsession of sorts. In her own words, "As long as I have Anne I don't need anyone else". 

More lightheartedly, she tends to be focused on the immediate future, using her backpack to store potato chips instead of her camping gear such as her sleeping bag, though most likely a ploy so that she would end up sharing a sleeping bag with Anne instead. 


Pray Anne Knights

Anne Mayer, Pray Mayer, under the tutorlage of Top Sword Milo, become Knights in record breaking time.

Pray is a master in both armed and unarmed combat, both melee and ranged.

Her training in melee combat started when Anne was very young, after their adoption by the Mayer Family, driven by her need to gain strength to protect Anne. In doing so, Pray also inadverdently inspired Anne to train with her. Studying both unarmed and armed combat, including sword and spear techniques, Pray gained strength at a prodigious speed, soon overtaking their teacher and creating her Pray Style, based off of Mayer martial arts.

It is likely that Pray would also have learned gun handling like Jill and Anne when she was a Knight Trainee, where she further refined her battle prowess.

Her most visible ability would be her Paranormal Power, Pray Style Wave Techniques. Concentrating on overwhelming force, this supremely destructive fighting style focused almost exclusively on nothing but pure power output, placing her at a level beyond any human, eventually gaining her the title of Top Sword, the strongest Knight. 

The only one who could even come close to matching in her skill and strength was her sister and disciple, Anne. And even then, Anne could only maintain a yearly win record of 3% against Pray during their training years. Even so, the sheer fact that Anne could even put up a fight against Pray's overwhelming ability impressed even the most highly-ranked of Knights. Pray's prodigious combat stats and Anne's ability to at least keep pace with Pray to some degree (however small) led to their promotion to Knighthood in record time.

Her abilities as a Queen are also quite notable. Here, they focus not so much on her martial skill capability, but rather on her incredible capacity as an intelligent, cunning military leader of the Beasts. She is the one who devised multitudes of surprise attacks against other human colonies, as well as the one who swiftly and decisively conquered the capital world Arin by attacking from within the planet itself. Her knowledge and understanding of human military mechanisms - whether in their military strategies or their weapons - allows her to incorporate powerful countermeasures in her own plans, allowing her to catch the humans off-guard when they become surprised that their conventional methods have no effect whatsoever on her Beasts. 

Role in Episode 0 - Pray (Spoilers Below)Edit

Pray is mentioned only in passing for the majority of Episode 0.

Pray march

After she and Anne graduated as Knights, they fought many battles against the Beasts, yet despite living amoungst humans for such a long time, Pray never adjusted her hostile personality, still only ever caring for Anne. 

Although much of Pray's past with Anne is divulged in flashbacks in Episode 0 (detailed in the above section), not much about her current conditions in the present timeline is revealed. However, it is known that even after fighting and defending humanity over a vast number of battles against the Beasts alongside Anne after gaining their Knighthood, she never once attempted to alter her anti-humanistic personality, even with Anne's overt disapproval of such behavior. This viewpoint about her fellow humans would eventually lead her to commit two cold, remorseless murders, which in turn led to her ungraceful fall from celebrated Top Sword to an incarcerated Knight in Training. Eventually, however, humanity's decision to incarcerate her would lead to her vengeful transformation into a powerful Beast queen, whereupon she created a vast variety of powerful monsters, and, using advanced battle strategies and techniques, assaulted human planets with quick, decisive attacks that left the human race reeling in shock and defeat. From here on out, the current timeline details the events falling the loss of humanity's capital world, Arin. 

There was an interim during which she was detained on the planet Arin while Anne continued to serve her military duties in outer space. When the Beast assault on Arin occurred, Pray's whereabouts could not be confirmed and Anne, overcome with worry, willed herself into action in order to recover her beloved sister. However, little did she know that Pray herself was the source of the Beasts' conquest of Arin, having been converted into an Elise type queen and birthing 2 of the strongest Beasts currently existent - Fear and Blue Beetle - both being SS-class Type Zero Beasts, the strongest classification possible. This would go on to drive Anne into desperate, bewildered conflict against her sister-turned-villain, all the while unwilling to believe that the one whom she loved so much would betray the human race which Anne herself fought so hard to protect and defend. And so the two would become the penultimate leaders in a grand, epic conflict that spanned galaxies and eons of time, until finally the two finally made peace between them, teaching their respective species to live and coexist in peace for the rest of time until the universe's end. 


Pray pregnant

"The imminent killing within me for such a long born".

Although the exact reason for Pray's transformation into a Queen is unclear, it is most likely due to her extreme view of the rest of humanity as being "weak" and "inferior", an opinion born of her own immense, overwhelming physical power. Thus, she believed that humans were dispensable and unnecessary. Furthermore, when Pray committed murder, Anne made a deal to keep Pray isolated on Arin while Anne herself performed military duties. Even thought this secured Pray's safety, it also allowed her destructive, anti-humanistic thoughts to corrupt her, in particular because Anne was not there to keep Pray in a stable state of mind. Without her sister as a source of emotional comfort and stress relief, Pray most likely succumbed to the darkness within her, eventually giving in and converting to the Beasts' side. 

It is not immediately clear why not even a single human became aware of Pray's eventual descent into madness and depravity, but had humanity known of this fact, then there is no doubt that they would have been more prepared to deal with her sudden, overwhelming invasion of Arin. 

When Pray became a Queen, she was given the designation Elise Type Queen, Number 34. It is mentioned in Ep0 - Ch29 that Pray has to be classified as the 34th gene pattern that was recorded missing from the family tree E-33, 55 years ago.

Pray cell

Pray was secluded for 6 months in her room and was able to "give birth" to two Type-Zeroes within that time. Visible here are Fear on the left, Blue Beetle on the right and presumably Quatro still in the womb behind Pray.

As a queen, E-34 was notable in that she understands and takes advantage of Human technology in addition to her already formidable genetic designs of her beasts.

She used the Core Temple's reactor at the Central Order as a resource for her Nest to produce beasts at a much greater rate and also seamlessly integrated existing and experimental human technologies in the designs of her Type Zeros.

She currently has two type-zeroes: Fear and Blue Beetle although it was explicitly revealed that she is "pregnant" with another possible EX-Type Zero, Quatro. The first picture on the right shows her "pregnancy" with her first two Type Zero Beast offspring. The second picture shows her after giving birth to her Beast offspring 6 months in.
