She is most likely based off of the Count of St. Germain, a French aristocrat in the arts and sciences from the 1700s who claimed to have lived for centuries and is shrouded in mystery. See also St. Germain (Theosophy).
Saint-Germain is said to have lived for thousands of years. Born the daughter of a sex slave, Saint-Germain often suffered abuse of all kinds, and was orphaned from a very young age: her father abandoned Saint-Germain and her mother because of their status as slaves, and her mother died from sickness and malnutrition, which was discovered by Saint-Germain herself. It is because of this harsh childhood that Saint-Germain wishes to free humanity from oppression.
Saint-Germain learned to read from a nobleman who taught her out of amusement as a reward for her services in bed. Ever since then, Saint-Germain filled her empty heart with a desire for knowledge. After an unspecified amount of time, Saint-Germain appeared as an aristocrat in French society, passing as a male, and soon accumulated a large amount of followers and was given the title of "Count". From there, Saint-Germain used the finances gathered from her followers to begin her alchemical research into the "Philosopher's Stone".
There are many ways to achieve a mastery of alchemy, however, each path shares a common goal of reaching the state of "perfection". When Saint-Germain discovered the deepest secrets of alchemy, she succeeded in recreating her body into a perfect being, which now allows her to live for eternity. In order to realize the ideal she holds in her heart, she now strives to create the "power of god."

- Saint-Germain shares several similarities with Chris Yukine.
- Both Saint-Germain and Chris were subjected to slavery (both sexual, although only implied in Chris' case) at a young age; both lost their parents and became orphans at a similarly young age; and both wanted to end oppression because of their pasts by taking lives, although Chris eventually moved past from her destructive methods.
- Both were used, manipulated, and betrayed by a higher villain (Finé and Adam) with a vital relationship to the Custodians, who fooled Chris/Germain into thinking they were working for the good of world instead of their own selfish gains.
- Both use guns as their main weapons and have an arc revolving around learning to use their hands and their song instead of their weapons.
- Saint-Germain's voice actor, Minako Kotobuki, is part of the same J-pop group (Sphere) as Ayahi Takagaki, Chris' voice actor.
