Klein Sieben is the Schnee family's butler. His first appearance is in "The Next Step", where he informs Weiss Schnee that her father wishes to speak with her. Later, in "Remembrance" he cheers up Weiss after she is left unhappy from her conversation with her father, offering her a coffee and mocking her father. He comes running, worried, when a window explodes in her room during "Two Steps Forward, Two Steps Back" and promptly shows pride when he realizes that she successfully summoned the Giant Armor. In "Taking Control", Klein helps Weiss escape the Schnee manor through a secret passage in the library.
Klein Sieben is a slightly overweight man with balding brown hair and a large mustache. He typically has light brown eyes, but appears to have the ability to change their color temporarily to red, light blue and yellow, accompanied by changes in tone of voice.
Klein is to be a positive and jovial man. He is quite supportive of Weiss, cheering her up whenever possible. Klein also mocks Jacques out of his earshot to entertain Weiss. When he changes his eye color, his tone of voice and personality appear to alter slightly, ranging from sardonic to jovial in a matter of seconds.
His loyalty reveals his ability to be deceptive. Apart from mocking his employer behind his back in order to cheer up Weiss, he helps her escape while ostensibly going about his usual duties as the family's butler.
