Elsa Granhiert (also known as the "Bowl Hunter") was a supporting antagonist in the Re: Zero - Starting Life in Another World light novel series, as well as its anime & manga adaptions. She served as the main antagonist of Arc 1 and the secondary antagonist of Arc 4.

Elsa was a notorious assassin working for the Gusteko Assassin Organisation. She was known as the "Bowel Hunter" because of her fondness for gutting her victims. Granhiert was eventually killed by Garfiel Tinsel.

Elsa was voiced by Mamiko Noto in the Japanese version of the anime and Cristina Vee in the English version.


Elsa had black eyes (purple in the anime) that drooped, giving off a gentle aura. Her wavy black hair was partially braided into one long tail on the left side of her head. Her hair was decorated with a single purple flower on the left side of her head.

Elsa wore an elegant black dress with purple trimmings that left part of her midsection and her cleavage exposed. She also usually adorned a long brown cloak with a pink-frilled hood.


Elsa was a battle maniac, not even hesitating to injure herself if she can fight strong opponents, which was helped by her abnormal healing rate. This was also shown through her persistence. Due to her blessing she claimed to be a vampire, though she didn't drink blood, nor did she receive any ill effects when under the sun. Her favorite things were seeing colorful bowels and touching warm looking internal organs. Within combat, she enjoyed cleaving through the abdominal region with the intent of tearing the target's bowels out.

Elsa also enjoyed knitting cotton dolls, especially after a good kill, and mentions to have over 10 years of experience.



  • Elsa's birthday was April 29 and she was 23 years old at the time of her death.
  • Elsa enjoys sewing and knitting, often making cute stuffed dolls in her spare time.
