Falcom has released a new set of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III information and screenshots detailing Stahlritter-associated characters Arianrhod, Ines, Duvalie, and Ennia.
Get the details below.
Arianrhod, “The Steel Maiden” (voiced by Aya Hisakawa)
- Age: ???
The seventh Anguis and strongest leading member of Ouroboros.
She leads a military unit of valkyries known as the Stahlritter, and is known for her noble character and supreme skill as a warrior even in the underbelly of society.
She fights wielding a huge cavalry spear and wearing silver armor, and bears a close resemblance to the patriot and hero Lianne Sandlot, who fought in “The War of the Lions” 250 years ago, but only few people know the truth of their relationship.
With the society’s recovery of the “Phantasmal Blaze Plan,” Arianrhod leads the Stahlritter and enters the Empire herself. It seems she has a different objective than Campanella and the others…?
Duvalie the Swift (voiced by Naomi Ohzora)
- Age: 23
A valkyrie who serves as the lead soldier of the Stahlritter, which is the military unit under the direct control of the seventh Anguis and Steel Maiden.
Despite having true strength on the level of the numbered Enforcers, perhaps because she worships her lady, the Steel Maiden, too fervently, she gets worked up all the time and the other members tease her.
During the Civil War, she stood before Rean and company to block their path many times as a cooperator of the Noble Faction, and for some reason displayed a blatant rivalry against the Viscount Arsei’s daughter Laura.
In order to recover the “Phantasmal Blaze Plan” stolen from them by Blood and Iron Chancellor Giliath Osborne, she resumes activity within the Empire under her lady’s orders.
Ines the Stout (voiced by Mariya Ise)
- Age: 23
A valkyrie with the bearing of a warrior who supports Stahlritter’s lead soldiers.
She is a female, but her high stature and large physique exceed 180 Rege, and she has the physical strength to freely swing a huge halberd.
Like Duvalie, she swears absolute loyalty to the “Steel Maiden,” and will faithfully handle her duties no matter the occasion.
She seems to place importance on improving her martial arts, and during the Civil War became interested in a user of the Arseid school of swordsmanship, who clashed swords with lead soldier Duvalie.
Ennia the Demon Bow (voiced by Satomi Sato)
- Age: 24
A voluptuous valkyrie who uses a bow and supports the Stahlritter’s lead soldiers alongside Ines.
Like the other soldiers, she adores the Steel Maiden, but sometimes teases Duvalie, whose thoughts about their lady are so genuine.
Knowing the ability of the “Demon Bow,” which always hits its target and can change course in the sky, she supports fellow members Duvalie and Ines to the front lines.
The Lance Maiden
Lianne Sandlot, the “Lance Maiden,” is a patriotic maiden with many achievements who worked with Prince Dreichels Reise Arnor during the “War of the Lions” civil war 250 years ago.
She led the brave warriors known as the “Eisenritter,” and it is said that she fought with the Lohengrin Castle that towers over Legram as her base.
After Dreichels was enthroned as emperor, she mysteriously died, whether it was by battle injuries or assassination.
In the town of Legram, there is a statue carrying a spear taller than the statue itself. It bears many similarities to Arianrhod, but what is their relationship…?
The Stahlritter is an elite unit of valkyries who pledge their allegiance to Arianrhod and is under her direct control.
Unlike Ouroboros and the Enforcers, which act according to the intentions of the Grandmaster, the Stahlritter work under the command of Arianrhod.
The Stahlritter first appeared in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Azure, in which a fierce battle with Arianrhod and Lloyd unfolded at the weather vane tower.
After that, Duvalie also appeared in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II. Under the instruction of the Noble Faction, she monitored the activity of Mcburn, and Rean and company, as well as fought against them.
When outside of battle, Duvalie appeared in plain clothes. You were able to see various aspects of her, such as her eating at the inn bar in the lakeside town of Legram. In The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, will you also get to see Ines and Ennia in plain clothes?
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is due out for PlayStation 4 on September 28 in Japan.
