Novick (노빅, "Nobic") is a Regular and a Spear Bearer originating from one of the Ha Family's branches. He was formerly part of Khun's team. Novick knew that Khun had been using force to capture and coerce notable Regulars onto his team, though he didn't do anything to stop it. He also knew why Khun tried to bring Rachel to the top of the Tower. He was also a former member of Team FUG. Currently, he is the leader of his own team with several other members.
When he was in Khun's team, he was ranked 2nd, not counting Khun. He had an existing rivalry with Ran, who was ranked 1st. It was said that Novick stayed in Khun's team just to fight Ran. Novick was estimated to be one of the Top 10 strongest E-rank Regulars.

Appearance and Personality
Novick is a tall, muscular man easily over 2 metres tall, with a pale complexion and black hair. He is often seen wearing a black, short-sleeved sports shirt with a green collar, black shorts, and black and green sneakers. He has red eyes similar to Yuri, though he has white pupils. He is a prideful individual, always aiming for first place within Khun's team. He sees Ran as his rival and often creates contests to try to show that he is better; however, despite his fixation on Ran, he has been shown to be careful, logical, and adaptable when dealing with unknown situations.
Powers and Abilities
Estimated to be at least one of the top ten E-rank Regulars at the time, Novick is an exceptional combatant, second only to Ran within his team. Based on his Ha Family blood, he potentially has great physical prowess as shown when he was left relatively unscathed by both Cassano's and Horyang's attacks. Also despite taking a direct kick from Anak, Novick got back up relatively unfazed (however he was left out of the fight for a while). However, it has been shown that his overestimation of his own abilities can get the better of him. When Novick uses shinsu it takes the form of dark red fire-like energy.
- Body Reinforcement: He can harden his body with shinsu to withstand Viole's lasers. This is no doubt due to him being a member of the Ha Family.
- Hayeol Style: Crimson Soul Fist - Seal (하열 식: 적령권 - 봉쇄, Hayeol sig: Jeoglyeong-gwon - Bongswae): Novick can manipulate his red-like shinsu to form a spherical dome around him as a shield, sealing him away from reach. However, it can be seemingly overpowered as Kang Horyang was not affected by this technique when he activated his right arm.
- Hayeol Style: Crimson Soul Fist - Crimson Bell Shock Seal (하열 식: 적령권 - 적령파봉쇄 (赤鈴波封鎖), Hayeol sig: Jeoglyeong-gwon - Jeoglyeongpabongswae): A technique that can knock a person up into the air when hit. The actual effectiveness of this technique alone is unknown, it is most likely used to set up for a more deadly technique.
- Enhanced Durability: Novick also seems to have above-average durability. His durability has been shown when he took direct hits from people such as Cassano and Baam with no issue at all. He was also able to recover from a full-powered kick and then being stabbed in the shoulder by Anak Zahard after just a few minutes, standing up as if it never happened and claiming "it was just a scratch" (although this could be his overconfidence, it is still impressive he stood up in a short period of time). He also recovered from a potentially fatal incident where he was kidnapped and knocked unconscious by Reflejo fairly quickly as well. Later on, Novick was also not hurt at all by J.M's spinning attack. This is most likely due to him being from the Ha Family.
- Boomerang Blades: Instead of the more regularly seen spears that Spear Bearers use, Novick uses a kind of spinning blade in battle, which returns to his hand after it is thrown.

Notes & Trivia
- He has a habit of biting his fingers.
- He is not from the main Ha Family, he's from a Family which split off from it.
- He currently is on the Too Bothersome level on Ran's chart.
- Surprisingly, Novick is the best cook on Khun's team; however, Novick only cooks on special days, so the team members are trying to increase the number of these special days.
- Novick enjoys making many different family names and introducing them falsely, such as Novick Grand, Novick Giant, Novick Yesbig, etc. He thinks such behaviour is very funny and also intelligent. In truth, Novick is from a famous branch of Ha Family.
- (Talking about Viole to Xia Xia) "Everyone here is focused on defeating each other and going up, but he's different. He's shining. You shouldn't bother a guy like that. Because there are people that will be following him, forever chasing that light."
