Oculus (オクルス Okurusu) is the creator of the system of arbitration. He observes all floors and is in a higher position than Nona. He is the second in line to the position of God.


Oculus is a skinny old man with neon green, cat-like pupils surrounded by black irises. He has a light pink hair with yellow highlights decorated with a lotus flower and locks it in a ponytail. His short beard is also styled the same as his hair, only with a lotus bud attached instead. He uses pince-nez spectacles for his eyesight.

His simple outfit consists of a collared shirt with violet stripes, violet shorts, and pale brown slippers.


An alleged God/Arbiter, he at first seems like a childish grandpa-type character, who spends his free time playing galactic pool, usually with Nona, as he expresses discontent when suggested to play with anybody else.

This is actually just one side of his personality, as late in the series shows as having a near-nihilistic philosophy believing empathy and the meaning of life is only relevant to those who can die. That arbiters cannot be too human to judge, as ''humans can't judge humans'', even though it can negate their competence in their judgments, sometimes severely.



He has the ability to extend the lotus flower on his chin in order to view the memories of others.


  • "'Live?' That’s a word reserved only for those capable of dying."
  • "That's so ridiculous it's making my flower shrivel."
  • "An arbiter with human emotions? How pointless."
  • "God left this place a long time ago."
