Norman (ノーマン, Nōman) is one of the main protagonists of The Promised Neverland. Like all the other children, he is an orphan.



Year 2039: Five-year-old Norman

Norman was born on March 21, 2034. During Norman's time being raised at plantation 3, he became close friends with Emma and Ray. Since infancy, Norman has been prone to getting sick easily. Several years prior to the events of the series, he along with Emma and Ray went to the forbidden gate. However, the trio decided to head back to the house.


Norman has short pale hair with blue faded eyes, he wears the standard orphanage uniform. Like the other children of Grace Field House, Norman sports a 5-digit classification number on the left side of his neck.


Norman is one of the most intelligent children in Grace Field House, having a perfect grade in Litany of Intelligence Tests. He is calm, optimistic, polite, and friendly.

He likes to apply what he learns to his day to day activities, even in a simple game of tag. He is known to be strategic, analytical, rational, and possesses logical deductive skills. Underneath his friendly exterior, Norman is prone to being apathetic at times. His apathetic is personality is portrayed when he saw no problem in killing Sister Krone and Isabella in order to escape.

Norman trusts and believes in all the children of the orphanage, As being one of the eldest brothers for his siblings, he constantly showed his affection by means of playing and spending time with them. Norman is willing to do anything for those he loves. Rather than choosing the opportunity to live, he chose to sacrifice himself so that Emma, Ray, Don, and Gilda could escape with all the children on the farm. Thus, putting his life before their will to survive with them.



Being one of the top-ranked orphan (in other words: premium quality) of the orphanage, Norman is an intelligent and logical strategist. He is noted in chapter 1 by the other children, as being the "genius" among them, putting him on top in the ranking of intelligence. Norman was one of the few to ace in the orphanage's tests and was the only person to decipher out Ray being Isabella's spy. He can easily plan his actions in advance and he anticipates on other's actions. He demonstrates this intellectual prowess and foresight by calculating every plan to the finest detail, which allowed him to formulate the ultimate gambit for escape.

He also discovered that the Promised Pen won't access other pages unless it is opened on the location of that page.
