Black Clover Explains How Noelle’s Mom Was Cursed
Black clover explained how Noelle Silva’s mother, Acier, was cursed during a flashback in the last chapter of the series! The intense battles against the Dark Triad of the Kingdom of Spade continue with the new chapter of the series, and with the first of the Zogratis siblings now defeated, the focus of the manga has shifted to the second of the Major Battles. The previous chapter of the series kicked off the long-awaited rematch between Noelle and Vanica Zogratis, and it was revealed that Noelle had gained a powerful new form during her brief training with the Elves in the Realm of the Heart.
As Noelle begins to use this form against Vanica, it allows Vanica to remember the last time she was pushed over the edge. It was previously revealed in the series that Noelle’s mother, Acier, was hit with a curse from the devil Megicula, and the final chapter actually gives a glimpse of how it actually happened as Vanica thinks back to the fighting Noelle’s mother a long time ago and how she struggled in the same way.

Chapter 296 of the series sees Vanica reflect on the last time she faced someone with so much power, and reveals it was around the time she first became host to Megicula. Wanting to see the full extent of her newfound power, she sought to fight someone who would have been the strongest warrior and then found Steel. Vanica and Acier had been pushed to the brink, and things take a turn when a young Nozel (holding a baby Noelle) is spotted.
Angry with Steel threatening her children, she charges her power once more and stabs Vanica in the stomach. It was a fatal wound, so Megicula had told Vanica to retreat. In doing so, Megicula used her curse magic to leave a mark on Steel. Sadly that’s the end of the flashback between the two of them, but we also know what happens after that as we previously learned that Steel ends up succumbing to the deadly curse after this fight.
The Curse of Steel was not only inflicted by Megicula, but was brought about by Vanica herself. This means that Noelle and Vanica’s fight now carries a lot more weight than expected. But what did you think of this flashback? Do you think Noelle has a chance to defeat Vanica when her mother couldn’t? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
