Falcom has released new information and screenshots of Ys IX: Monstrum Nox detailing the Seikoku Church and the Seikoku Knights, as well as sub-characters Chatelard, Berger, Ingrid, Marious, and Margot.
Get the details below.
A huge religious organization that does missionary work throughout the Eresia continent and is the established religion of the Romun Empire.
Like other regions, the people of Balduq are very religious, and many of its inhabitants gather at the cathedral on holidays for mass.
One of the few knight orders of the Seikoku Church located throughout the Eresia continent. The order half-forced the church to permit its establishment, but is currently on good terms with the governor-general of the Romun Empire and is helping maintain public order in Balduq.
Chatelard (voiced by Yuuki Ono)
“That murderer Hawk… he is not someone I can overlook.”
The leader of the Seikoku Knights, a wing of the Seikoku Church located in the Gllia region. They are dedicated to missionary work and the preservation of the province’s public order.
Known for his devout faith, he is famous in the city due to his chiseled features.
He seems to take an interest in Adol and his experiences as an adventurer throughout many different regions.
Berger (voiced by Takahiro Shimura)
“Today is the day, I’m going to throw those eyesore weirdos into jail!”
A military man of the Romun Empire who works as the warden of Balduq Prison.
While impulsive and inflexible, he also has his own sense of justice, and because he always takes action with integrity, he has the deep trust of his subordinates and followers.
As a military man and superior officer, his judgment ability is strong, and he exhibits an unsparing attitude when it comes to the Monstrum making a fuss in the city.
Ingrid (voiced by Natsuko Hara)
“A relic that controls the weather? I couldn’t possibly believe such a fairy-tale.”
An intellectual woman and the cross-examiner dispatched from the Romun Empire to Balduq Prison in charge of questioning the imprisoned adventurer Adol.
Seemingly a total realist, she does not believe anything at all about the various adventures and mysterious events Adol has experienced thus far.
Marious (voiced by Shuuta Morisaki)
“Oh, you… somehow, you don’t look like a prisoner here.”
A young man imprisoned in Balduq Prison.
While young, he is capable in both insight and action, and has a friendly personality.
He seems to have lost his memories, as he himself does not have any recollection of why he was imprisoned to begin with.
Margot (voiced by Kujira)
“I think you ought to age a little more for a cigar to suit you.”
An old woman who loves cigars beyond anything else, and was the leader of the Gllia region resistance group known as “The Bell of Liberation.”
While hoisting the re-independence of Gllia several years ago, she was captured by Romun army during an uprising and imprisoned in Balduq Prison.
She seems to have obtained information on the Monstrum while in prison, and is trying to make contact with them for some reason…
Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is due out for PlayStation 4 on September 26 in Japan.
