Falcom has released a new set of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III information and screenshots detailing returning, former Class VII characters Fie Claussell, Emma Millstein, Celine, Gaius Worzel, and Millum Orion.
Get the details below.
Fie Claussell (voiced by Hisako Kanemoto)
- Age: 17
A former jaeger girl called by the name, “Sylphid.”
Following the death of its leader, the jaeger corp “Zephyr,” which she was a member of, dissolved. After, she half-forcibly became a student of the special “Class VII” at Thors Military Academy by the proposal of Sara Valestein, a bracer, and achieved significant growth through her student life.
During the Civil War, Fie is reunited with her former jaeger corp, who leave behind only the mysterious words, “Recover the leader,” before disappearing.
In order to find out the true meaning behind those words, and in mulling over what she can do for Class VII, she chooses to become a “Bracer of the Imperial Guild” after graduating from Thors Military Academy.
With regulations from the Imperial government further strengthening, she gained the qualifications of a senior bracer at the young age of 16 under the guidance of Sara and Toval Randonneur, and is currently working alongside Sara both inside and outside of the country.
Emma Millstein (voiced by Saori Hayami)
- Age: 20
The daughter of a family known as the “Hexen Clan,” which has long existed in the shadows of the Erebonian Empire’s history.
As the president of the special “Class VII” of Thors Military Academy, she supported Rean as a guide to the Awakener of the “Ashen Knight.”
During the Civil War, although she reunited with her surrogate older sister and second Anguis of Ouroboros Vita Clotilde, who had disappeared, Clotilde disappeared again after she was defeated by the tactics of the Blood and Iron Chancellor.
After the Civil War, and with her graduating from Thors Military Academy, she decided to go on a full-blown search for the missing Clcotilde.
Emma, who learned from the “head” of her hometown history related to secret arts and the Empire, will go on a journey in search of places built by witches and gnomes in the ancient times while once again pursuing Clotilde’s whereabouts.
Celine (voiced by Mai Aizawa)
- Age: ??
A black cat with elegant and beautiful fur, who can manipulate people.
As a cat-type familiar used by the Hexen Clan, she possesses unique characteristics, and takes on the role of an “overseer” for Emma.
At first, she was evaluating Rean’s qualifications as the “Awakener of the Ashen Knight,” but after the Civil War began, she accompanied Rean, who was on his own, and lent him her power as a partner for a while. After the Civil War ended, she returned to the witch village with Emma.
While pursuing the whereabouts of Vita Clotilde, who has gone missing, she travels throughout the Empire in search of places built by witches and gnomes.
Gaius Worzel (voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya)
- Age: 20
Descended from the Nord Highlands located in the northeast of the Empire, he is a young man of the “Nord People,” nomads who have strong faith in the wind and goddess.
In order to protect his hometown, as well as to broaden his own perspective, he entered the special “Class VII” of Thors Military Academy as an exchange student, where he gained the Empire as a second hometown in addition to treasured friends.
After the Civil War ended, Gaius, who promised to reunite with Rean and the others, returned home to the Nord Highlands where the danger of war had once again drawn close.
As the sporadic war between the Republic Army of Calvard, which was defeated in Crossbell, and the Imperial Army of Erebonia happened over again, Gaius kept a watchful eye on the Nord people to protect their safety, but—.
For some reason, it seems that contact between Gaius and the members of Class VII is impossible for the time being.
Millium Orion (voiced by Kotori Koiwai)
- Age: 15
A girl with an innocent personality and who uses the silver Combat Shell “Airgetlam.”
She is a member of the Imperial Army of Erebonia’s Intelligence Division.
She is a member of the “Ironbloods,” and uses the code name “White Rabbit” during missions.
In her mission before the Civil War, she was admitted into the special “Class VII” of Thors Military Academy, where she met her friends and lived a daily life that could not be matched.
After graduating from Thors Military Academy, she returned to her position as an agent.
While sometimes carrying out joint missions with Altina, she continues to keep in touch with the members of Class VII, including Jusis.
A skilled jaeger corp described as the “strongest” in Western Zemuria alongside the “Red Constellation.”
Their leader, Rudger Claussell, was once called the “Mercenary Lord,” and in a fight against Red Constellation leader Bardur Orlando, who was similarly called “War God,” it is said that they both died.
According to Xeno and Leonidas, who Fie reunited with during the Civil War, the current group seems to be taking action to “recover the leader,” but their specific plan remains unknown.
Rudger is a foster parent to Fie, and it can be said that he was a person who excelled not only in fighting strength, but also in character.
The descendants of a mysterious clan that operated secretly in the shadows of the history of the Erebonian Empire.
They use a system of arts that are said to be different from Orbal Arts, which use Orbments. Emma also used these arts to heal injuries, open locked doors, perform limited memory operations, and so on.
They have a deep connection to “The Ashen Knight,” which causes an uproar every time it makes an appearance in the Empire, and their mission is to lead The Ashen Knight to its “Awakener.”
In order for Emma to fulfill this mission, she enrolls in Thors Military Academy, where “The Ashen Knight Valimar” is sealed.
There are many things that are still unknown about the clan, but based on Emma’s movements, it seems that most of the mysteries will be unveiled in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III.
The Nord people live in the Nord Highlands in the northern part of the Empire.
They live their lives as nomads, doing things such as hunting and stock breeding, and are famous as a people with a history of spiritual faith.
During “The War of the Lions” in which the candidates for emperor fought for the throne, the Nord people rallied for Imperial prince Dreichels Reise Arnor, who would become emperor.
The Nord Highlands are located in the space between the Erebonian Empire and the opposing Calvard Republic, and is becoming wrapped up in a territorial dispute between the two countries.
A silver puppet led by Millium.
It was built at the “Black Workshop,” which has a close connection to the secret society known as “Ouroboros.”
It is made of a mysterious-feeling material, and in addition to being able to freely transform to some extent, it is designed to communicate with Millium in a mysterious language, and can become clear and fly at high speeds with Millum riding it.
Millium can move it at will, and a single blow from its strong arm can even break rocks.
Altina’s Claiomh Solais seems to be the same type as Millium’s Airgetlam.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is due out for PlayStation 4 on September 28 in Japan.
