Falcom has released a new set of The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III information and screenshots detailing new characters “Azure” Siegfried and “Vermillion” Roselia, and returning characters Vita Clotilde and Rudger Claussell.
Get the details below.
“Azure” Siegfried (voiced by ???)
- Age: ???
A mysterious young man who wears a blue coat, a mask over his face, and uses dual handguns.
He seems to belong to an organization different from the Imperial Army of Erebonia, Ouroboros secret society, and Jaeger Corps, and as someone’s “agent,” appears in various places throughout the Empire to observe the movements of each power and Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch.
His appearance is reminiscent of “a certain person” of the former Class VII, in which Rean and company spent their precious school days, but…?
“Vermillion” Roselia (voiced by Kaori Mizuhashi)
- Age: ???
A girl with long, golden hair that reaches the floor, and who is characterized by her use of an antique manner of speaking.
She appears throughout the Empire and even comes into contact with Rean, but her objective and motives are entirely unknown.
Somehow or another, she seems to know that Rean is the Ashen Awakener, and sometimes appears before him to leave him with words that have an air of advice.
With features such as her golden hair and crimson eyes, she appears to share characteristics with the vampire Rose, who appears in the novel “Red Moon Rose,” which is themed after the incident that occurred in the Empire 200 years ago, but…
Vita Clotilde (voiced by Yukari Tamura)
- Age: 26
A witch of the Hexen Clan and Second Anguis of the secret society Ouroboros, in which she is known by the nickname, “The Azure Abyss.”
In order to execute the Phantasmal Blaze Plan” which The Society is moving forward with, she used the Noble Alliance during the Civil War to prepare the “stage” for a Divine Knight showdown between Crow and Rean.
However, because of Duke Cayenne, who could not control himself in the situation, the manifestation of the Vermillion Knight dormant beneath the Imperial castle was permitted, and at the same time Crow died, the plan itself was completely “overtaken” by the “Blood and Iron Chancellor” Giliath Osborne.
Entrusting Crow’s remains to Rean and company, Clotilde disappeared from the scene, and cut off all contact with The Society under any circumstance. While ducking the pursuit of The Intelligence Division and Railway Military Police, she is probing for the true state of The Black Workshop and true character of Giliath Osborne on her own.
Rudger Claussell (voiced by Hochu Otsuka)
- Age: 50
A veteran leader who has the nickname “Mercenary Lord,” once led the Zephyr Jaeger Corps, is Fie’s adoptive father.
He is a determined man with strong resolve, and with ability greater than that of the top class Jaegers combined. He has great fighting strength through his “Buster Glaive” that can adapt to any battlefield, and even other Jaeger Corps acknowledge his superiority when it comes to his elusive strategy.
However, several years ago, a fierce battle unfolded on the battlefield after the Red Constellation and Zephyr were hired by conflicting clients, and at the end of the one-on-one fight with the enemy leader, Rudger and his opponent simultaneously defeated each other.
Rudger breathed his last breath in front of Fie and the other group members, and after, it was thought that the members of Zephyr scattered, but…?
Speaking of characters connected to Class VII, Crow has appeared as a senior at Thors Military Academy and as leader “C” of the terrorist organization known as the Imperial Liberation Front.
He cooperated with the Noble Faction to assassinate Chancellor Giliath Osborne and piloted The Azure Knight, Ordine in order to overtake Thors Military Academy.
After that, he died by Vermillion Apocalypse’s attack in the battle of the Infernal Castle.
New character Siegfried seems to have a similar atmosphere to Crow.
The Four Faces of Clotilde
An Anguis of The Society, a witch of the Hexen Clan, an opera singer known by the name “The Azure Diva,” and radio personality Misty of the Trista Broadcasting radio program “Abend Time.”
Clotilde is a character who has surely bewitched those around her—like a witch would—by properly using a variety of identities such as the aforementioned.
Even though she is acting independently this time, it seems very likely that she will use her various identities.
Perhaps you’ll even get to meet her in the form of Misty once again?
Members of Zephyr
There are currently three members of “Zephyr,” which is led by Rudger, who are Fie, Xeno, and Leonidas.
Fie is currently active as a novice Bracer.
As for the remaining two, in the previous game, they were working with the Noble Faction while looking for something regarding their leader. Will you act alongside Rudger as a result?
Please pay attention to Fie, who loves Rudger like a father, in what she thinks at their reunion and how she acts.
“Red Moon Rose”
The novel “Red Moon Rose” is a book that appeared in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel.
There were 14 volumes in total, and when they were all gathered, they could be exchanged for a Zemurian Ore.
The content of the book itself depicts the “Vampire Incident” that occurred in the Imperial capital Heimdallr 200 years prior, and within it, the true ancestor of the vampire named “Rose” appears.
In the story, a woman with semi-long blond hair used weapons such as the “Templar Sword” used by members of the church and a large, silver handgun. And while she was using Thaumaturgy to heal the injured, it is not said whether or not she belongs to the church.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III is due out for PlayStation 4 on September 28 in Japan.
