Get the details below.
Emma Millstein (voiced by Saori Hayami)
“As a traveling witch, I want to protect the peace in Zemuria.”
A member of the old “Class VII” and the “Hexen Clan,” an ancient clan of witches in the Empire.
After losing her mother at a young age, chief witch Roselia became like a grandmother to her, and Clotilde—who grew up with her in the same village—became like an older sister.
Her history came to light during the Imperial Civil War that occurred during her school days, and since then she has been supporting the new and old “Class VII” as a witch and master of orbal arts.
After “The Great Twilight,” she returned to her hometown of Erin Village with her familiar Celine, but is continuing to seek out and repair abnormalities in Septium veins throughout Zemuria.
Fie Claussell (voiced by Hisako Kanemoto)
“I know I shouldn’t as a bracer, but I’m more than happy to show you some ‘jaeger moves.'”
A female bracer with excellent athletic capabilities and born to the jaeger corps “Zephyr.”
She once fought on the battlefield as a jaeger, but after meeting the bracer Sara and living as a student of “Class VII” at Thors Military Academy, she earned the qualifications to become a bonafide bracer and formed a duo with Sara.
In the disaster known as “The Great Twilight,” she saw off the death of Rutger—leader of the jaeger corps “Zephyr” and her foster father during her jaeger days—as his “daughter,” and made the decision to continue onward as a bracer.
She is currently a distinguished young bracer crowning her jaeger era nickname “Sylphid,” and the Bracer Guild anticipates she has a promising future.
Gaius Worzel (voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya)
“The terrorists who rose in revolt and occupied Crossbell, huh…”
One of the Dominions that belongs to the “Gralsritter” of the Septian Church, and born of the nomadic Nord people.
The eldest son of four brothers, he is caring and able to determine anything’s true nature without preconceived notions, and is thus well trusted by those around him, including the members of the old “Class VII.”
After graduating from Thors Military Academy, a certain incident led him to inherit the “Stigma,” and he fought against the disaster in the Empire as the Eighth Dominion, known as “Soaring Phoenix.”
After that, he carried out “Gralsritter” duties all over Zemuria with his falcon partner Zeo from his days in the Nord Highlands, but to acquire the key to an incident that occurred in the Empire, he will once again visit his hometown of the Nord Highlands where his family resides.
Millium Orion (voiced by Kotori Koiwai)
“A-chan, we can’t lose!”
A girl with an innocent and friendly personality, and a member of the old “Class VII.”
She is actually a Homunculus created by Gnomes, and loves her younger sister Altina, who is also a Homunculus, more than anyone else.
She used her position as an agent for the Imperial Army’s Intelligence Division under the code-name “White Rabbit” to support the new and old “Class VII,” but died as a result of the Gnomes’ behind the scenes operations.
However, she gained a new body thanks to the last bit of energy granted to her by Arianrhod, and the cooperation of the Divine Knights and witches.
With the disaster passed, she once again appears to be working for the Intelligence Division.
Crimson Roselia (voiced by Kaori Mizuhashi)
“I won’t say you shouldn’t cry. But having your bloodline, you are destined to choose your way of life and fate.”
The chief witch of the “Hexen Clan.” Despite her young appearance, she is over 800 years old and speaks maturely.
She is the creator of Celine, and to Emma, she is like a mentor of magic and grandmother.
Her true identity is the “Holy Beast” sent by the sky goddess Aidios, and although equal in rank to the “Holy Wolf” Zeit who watches over Crossbell, she enjoys fashion culture and junk food, and has an overall sloppy lifestyle, so she is often scolded by Emma.
She confirmed the lapse of the “Septium vein” distortion—a result of the disaster’s passing—and should have been able to take a break from her responsibilities as chief, but…
Celine (voiced by Mai Aizawa)
“N-naturally! I am Rose’s successor after all!”
A talking black cat and Emma’s familiar in the “Hexen Clan.” For Emma, she is something like a chaperone.
Since she was created by the chief witch Roselia, her latent magical power is very strong, and she can transform into a humanoid at will.
She has been with Rean since his Thors Military Academy days, supported his battles in the Divine Knights, protected him when he became a sacrifice of the “Great Twilight,” and saved him from predicaments many times over.
After “The Great Twilight,” she returned to her hometown of Erin Village, but subsequently set out on an investigation surrounding the “Septium veins” at Roselia’s request.
Fran Seeker (voiced by Moyu Arishima)
“Big sis… it was a difficult road, but I’m glad everyone worked so hard.”
A policewoman who works as the receptionist and operator for the Crossbell Police Department, and the younger sister of Crossbell Guardian Force member Noel.
She has admired Noel since she was young and is proud to be her little sister. They have a tight-nit relationship and even go out together on days off.
Compared to her sister, who loves vehicles and being active, she has a strong girlishness in that she enjoys stuffed animals and collecting accessories. But her skills as an operator are top-notch, and she has been supporting Lloyd and the others members of the Special Support Section since its establishment.
With the reindependence of Crossbell decided, she is extremely happy as an officer that the peaceful days with her big sister have returned.
Shizuku MacLaine (voiced by Fumiko Inoue)
“I know I can overcome anything, as long as I’m with my dad.”
The only daughter of Arios MacLaine, an A-rank bracer known as the “Guardian of Crossbell.”
A courageous and kind girl who loves her father, she is also good friends with the other children of Crossbell such as KeA.
When she was young, she lost her eyesight as the result of an exploding orbal car incident and was treated at St. Ursula Medical College, but regained her eyesight thanks to KeA, who awakened as the “Zero Child.”
During the Empire’s occupation of Crossbell, her father Arios evacuated Shizuku to the Remiferia area to keep her out of the military’s sight, but even during that, she continued to send letters of encouragement to Lloyd and the others who continued operating behind the scenes.
Emperor (voiced by Junichi Yanagita)
“I shall re-educate you myself, and train you to become the ultimate weapon!”
A mysterious man who serves as an executive in a certain organization and calls himself by the code-name “Emperor.”
He has a ruthless personality in that he exploits the subordinate members of his organization as tools, and deals the deserters a merciless death.
He wears a golden artifact that grants him the ability to control gravity, and has used overwhelming gravity attacks to crush many bodies.
With a certain someone’s support, he seems to be in pursuit of two members that have escaped the organization…
