"I'm going to return to Grace Field within the next two years. We're going to save the rest of our family that we left behind, the ones that were 4 and younger, and we'll lead them and all those bred for food over to the human world. Come with us, mister, to the human world. Let's go see the world our friends wanted to see!"

Emma to the man in "Chapter 64"

Emma (エマ, Ema?) is the main protagonist of The Promised Neverland and a former orphan from Grace Field House which she escaped from.


Emma was born in 2034, being sent to Plant 3 a year later, growing up along with several other children, making friends with Norman and Ray, and being looked after by Mama Isabella. On January 1, 2039, 4 years later, Norman eventually became ill so Mama Isabella ordered no one to stay with him so he would not get sick, but Emma disobeyed this rule several times, trying to talk to Norman, but being stopped by Mama until she finally found a way for them to talk: over a cordless phone. Sometime in the same year, she, Norman, and Ray went to the gate and asked them what they would do when they went outside, she says she would like to ride a giraffe. However, they did not enter the gate.


Emma Full Profile

Emma's full appearance.

Emma is a young girl of average height, she has short, messy orange hair with one lock sticking up along with green eyes. Like all the other children at the orphanage, she wears the standard uniform— a shirt and skirt like the other girls and has brown shoes. She has her identification number "63194" on her neck.

She lost her left ear in the escape from the Grace Field House and wears a bandage to cover the wound and to prevent it from infection. She also stopped wearing the standard uniform and wears long black pants, a black shirt and a long white-colored coat.


Ray and Emma arguing

Emma's straightforwardly denied Ray

She acts like an older sister to the other children and loves her family very much. Emma is sweet, heroic, caring, has a big heart and is a little naive, causing her to readily put herself at risk to ensure the safety of the whole group before anything else. Out of the main trio (along with Norman and Ray), she is the most vocal and unwilling to budge on this part of the plan even as their power struggle with Mama continues.

Skills and AbilitiesEdit


Emma has great physical abilities and amazing reflexes, as seen when she is always the last one to be caught in the hide-and-seek games at Grace Field. Emma is the child with the most breath and physical capacity in the house, being superior even to Norman who can only catch her because of his strategies.

Skilled AccuracyEdit

Emma shooting the demon

Emma shoots a wild man-eater with a great aim

When Emma and Ray are ordered by the man to equip necessary weapons before traveling to Goldy Pond, Emma chose a hand bow. Along the journey, Emma made use of the hand bow to defend herself from the demons, this was shown when she used it to kill a wild man-eater with great accuracy.

She is also good with rifles as shown in Chapter 75 Page 4.


Although Emma is not as bright as Norman and Ray, she is able to compete with them on an intellectual level. Emma was considered as one of the three geniuses at Grace Field as she received full marks in every test.

Emma has an incredible ability to learn fast, which allowed her to always be among the top three children. Thanks to this, she is also able to memorize things perfectly, as she said it would be easy to memorize 10 types of team formation. She proved to know and understand Morse code. She has a great ability to manipulate her expressions and feelings, fooling Mama Isabella who even checked her heartbeat.


She can learn and can pick up techniques from others very quickly. This can be seen when she observes the man and copies his ability to move without making any sounds in order to prevent any demons from finding them.

Enhanced StaminaEdit

Emma has proven herself to possess incredible stamina. She, together with Ray managed to follow the unnamed man for hours without slowing down or losing track of him.

  • Emma is ranked second in the official Color Illustration Character poll.[1]
