■ Characters

Agate Crosner (voiced by Takayuki Kondou)

“I will support you with all my strength. Good luck, Tita.”

The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki

An A-rank bracer from Liberl, also known by the nickname “Heavy Blade.”

A warrior who has carried out numerous missions with his natural fighting spirit and ability to wield a massive sword with ease. He is also one of the people accredited with the resolution of the “Liberl Incident.”

After entering the Empire as a bracer, he fought alongside Thors Military Academy Branch Campus and the new and old “Class VII” in various situations, and during the disaster known as “The Great Twilight,” fought against the crisis alongside Estelle and his Liberl companions.

After the disaster, he watches over Tita’s growth with deep affection from their days in Liberl, while carrying out bracer missions and helping Tita’s research. Although he has had increased anxiety since Tita’s mother Erika joined in, since she does not exactly like him…

Tita Russell (voiced by Hiromi Konno)

“I wanted to prove that the time I spent with everyone this past year wasn’t a waste!”

The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki

A girl from Liberl and a member of the Military Finance section that is “Class IX” of Thors Military Academy Branch Campus.

The granddaughter of Albert Russell, a genius orbal scholar known as one of the “three disciples.” She is currently studying under Professor G. Schmidt as his fourth disciple.

Unlike her usual innocence suggests, she has a persistent personality, and the technical skills she refined in the Russell family are recognized by the straight-laced Schmidt.

During the disaster known as “The Great Twilight,” she joined the line of battle piloting the “Orbal Gear III,” a bipedal weapon developed prior, and supported Rean and the members of the new and old “Class VII” with her skills and knowledge as an engineer.

Afterward, she remained at Thors Military Academy Branch Campus, and while being supported by the bracer Agate, is actively engaging in the development of the next-generation “Orbal Gear” with the Reinford Group and Epstein Foundation.

G. Schmidt (voiced by Houchuu Ootsuka)

“I don’t care for the intentions of the government or the guild. I have no other interest than the data left behind by the ‘Workshop.'”

The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki

One of the “three disciples” of Professor C. Epstein, father of the Orbal Revolution, he is a genius orbal scholar who serves as a special adviser to Thors Military Academy Branch Campus.

He can be stubborn due to the pride he has for his work and considers research his top priority, but behind his blunt words there is consideration for his second disciple Makarov and third disciple George Nome that appears from time to time, and he also has the capacity to acknowledge the growth of his fourth disciple Tita.

In order to solve the problem of the armaments and autonomous weapons left behind between the Civil War and disaster known as “The Great Twilight” by the “Black Workshop,” such as the “Magic Soldat,” he is investigating the ruins of the “Workshop” with the collaboration of the Reinford Group.

Lechter Arundel (voiced by Masakazu Morita)

“Good grief, I was hoping that things would be a little easier when the sneaky old man retired.”

The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki

A special duty major of the Intelligence Division of the Imperial Army of Erebonia, he is a clever commissioned officer who also possesses the title of diplomatic secretary.

A former “Ironblood,” while he may look irresponsible, he is a successful negotiator who utilizes every means possible, and is thus known by the nickname “Scarecrow.”

During the disaster known as “The Great Twilight,” as a pawn of Prime Minister Osborne, he was cruel and even considered suicide when the outcome was decided, but was persuaded by Rean and company to change his mind, and decided to remain with the Intelligence Division and support the future of the Empire.

In the aftermath of the disaster, his naturally sharp “intuition” told him that something in Zemuria would change, bringing him to Crossbell right before re-independence…

Rufus Albarea (voiced by Daisuke Hirakawa)

“I shall purify it myself. The illusion that embodies the chaos in Crossbell, the ‘Support Section.'”

The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki

The eldest son of Duke Helmut Albarea, head of one of the Four Great Houses, and the former primary member of the “Ironbloods” under the direct control of Osborne.

He chose to part ways with the deceptive Imperial nobility and built up his strength in order to overcome Osborne, who he worshiped as a “true father,” seeking a meaning to his own life.

During the disaster known as “The Great Twilight,” even after going as far as throwing away his life as a human to try and seize victory, he was defeated before Rean and the members of the new and old “Class VII.”

Realizing the difference between himself, who did not trust or rely on anyone, and his younger brother Jusis, who trusts in his bonds with others, he admitted defeat.

Afterward, following Osborne’s death, Rufus himself was supposed to be arrested as the primary member taking the rap for all of his crimes, but…

Dieter Crois (voiced by Eiji Takemoto)

“You, Lloyd, and the others should reconsider what you think of as ‘justice.'”

The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki

The former president of the International Bank of Crossbell, and a descendant of the Crois family, which has inherited alchemy since ancient times.

He is the true father of Mariabell, the third Anguis of “Ouroboros.”

In order to carry out his own “justice,” he used the “Zero Treasure” KeA and other reckless ways to win the independence of Crossbell, even going as far as inaugurating himself as president, but was defeated and arrested by Lloyd and the “Special Support Section” as a international criminal.

Afterward, while experiencing the occupation of Crossbell by the Empire and the World War caused by the disaster known as “The Great Twilight,” he seemed to be spending his days behind bars questioning how “justice” ought to be.

The “former” Crown Prince Cedric, who asked to join “Ouroboros” and spends his days as an “Enforcer candidate.”

There was no one to protect him.
