■ Characters

KeA Bannings (voiced by Rie Kugimiya)

“There has to be something we can do. Especially if it’s the people of Crossbell, who taught me how to be strong.”

The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki

A girl with an innocent personality and beloved by everyone. She has a strong, family-like bond with the “Special Support Section.”

KeA is actually a homunculus created by alchemists 500 years ago. During Crossbell’s independence, she awakened as the “Sept-Terrion of Zero” to have her ability to manipulate fate used in vile ways, but was rescued by the “Special Support Section” and lost that power in the process.

She currently lives as an ordinary girl under the protection of the “Special Support Section,” but is said to still have “remnants” of her power that allow her to sense the flow of fate.

Alex Dudley (voiced by Kazuya Nakai)

“Have you had enough? This the hammer of justice!”

The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki

The foremost elite of the Crossbell Police Department and the man in charge of the First Division. While he can be disciplined and cool-headed, he has a strong sense of justice and passion within him, and many police officers on the force aspire to be like him.

Although initially skeptical of the “Special Support Section,” he was inspired by their actions throughout their involvement in many cases and began to recognize them as members of the Crossbell Police Department.

Following the liberation of Crossbell, his days are still busy dealing things such as the aftermath of the Imperial Defense Force’s withdrawal, the dismantle-reassembly of the military police, and preparations for the re-independence ceremony.

“Seriously, you’re always late… idiot Randy.”

The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki

An excellent female officer of the Crossbell Guardian Force, who oversees countless members under the command of Sonya.

During the occupation of Crossbell, while worried about her former colleague Randy who was appointed as an instructor at the Thors Branch Campus in the Empire, she continued to lead the Guardian Force members hidden throughout Crossbell in steady resistance activities.

Following the liberation of Crossbell, she was promoted from Second Lieutenant to First Lieutenant with the reorganization of the Guardian Force. While she is delighted Randy is back after finishing his term, she continues to have petty arguments with him from time to time.

With the passing of Prime Minister Osborne and resignation of President Locksmith, a huge shift in the balance of power between these two countries are in place. He seems to be trying to figure out how to best handle this situation…
