Character Profile

Howl is a powerful wizard but rather lazy. He is constantly on the run from the Witch of the Waste, who he seduced and dumped, and Madame Suliman, who wants him to help his country in a war by using his magic to harm the other side. He has the ability to change into a bird-like creature, but runs the risk of not being able to turn back.

His hair colors change over the course of the anime. He starts out blonde, accidentally dyes it orange and then dyes it black to cover it up.

awesome anime luver Score:0 Howl didn't accidentally die his hair orange, Sophie messed up the potions that were in the washroom, the potions that kept Howl's hair blonde, so that they - the potions - didn't do what they were supposed to do (dye the user's hair blonde), and Howl's hair came out a darker shade than what it should've been in a non-permanent way. (instead of staying in whatever shade the dye came out as for a long period of time, it turns the user's hair back to its original shade almost immediately)After the dye's effect wore off, Howl's hair reverted to its natural - note, NATURAL - shade, a glossy black.
