Viscount Viktor S. Arseid (cv. Hiroki Yasumoto)
43 years old and uses a two-handed sword. He is a middle-aged man with a goatee, that is also Laura Arseid’s father. Known as the ‘Swordsmith of Light,’ he is one of the Empire’s greatest swordsmen.
Viktor is the feudal lord over the lakeside village of Legram, and has opened a military training field where he is the lead instructor.
For generations, the family has used Lohengrin Castle as its home. This castle was once used by the Ironsides and their leader, the Spear Saint Riann, the hero of the Lion War.
Princess Alfin (cv. Satomi Satou)
15 years old. Alfin is the daughter of the emperor who also attends the St Astraia Girl’s School, and she is the twin sister to Prince Cedric. She has long, wavy blonde hair, and an angelic disposition, so she is very popular amongst the people of the Empire. When with her close friend Elise, she can be a bit of a prankster. She often acts as support for her kind, timid brother. Her relationship with her step-brother, “that prince” isn’t bad.
(Thanks to Lenster for catching that!)
Elise’s voice actor has been revealed to be Saori Gotou.
Viscount Arseid is top of the class in strength in the Empire. While he can’t be easily compared, he is approximately an equal to Loewe and Arios in fighting strength. He distances himself from politics, which allows him a degree of freedom within the Empire.
This issue delves into the arts provided by the combat class orbment, ARCUS.
Once slots are unsealed, you can insert quartz into them.
All the quartz on a single line will interact with each other. There can be multiple lines in a single orbment. (ed: see the above picture.)
You can find multiple types of quartz:
Normal – The most inexpensive quartz, and the most common sort. One will give you one ability or art you can cast. For example: Attack 1 would give you STR up, and the Silver Thorn quartz will give you the ability to cast the art Silver Thorn.
Rare – These quartz will have several abilities tied to them. You can find these at shops, as well. Recovery, for example, will allow you to heal on the field, as well as give you the ability to use some arts.
SRare – This is the highest grade quartz and can grant high abilities and/or arts. These cannot be bought in shops.
Master Quartz – This is a special quartz that is socketed into the center slot of the orbment. This quartz will level up through combat, and as it does, it either strengthens or gains new abilities that are exclusive to this quartz.
Force – Physical attack of the user is increased greatly, and at the beginning of a fight, the character gains a boost in STR for a set number of turns.
Arts are magic that you cast at the cost of EP. Arts can be anything from attack, to recovery, to support. Like quartz, arts come in the seven elements and enemies have a variety of weaknesses based on the elements. Exploit these weaknesses to deal more damage on the enemies.
Chrono Burst – Time element art that allows the target to take turns in succession.
Altea Cannon – Numerous lasers fire from the sky with this Space art, striking the enemies on the ground. This art can lower ATS and ADF (Arts Strength and Arts Defense).
Ancient Glyph – This Earth element art summons a massive boulder from the sky that crashes onto its target. It can petrify as well.
Judgement Bolt – A bolt of lightning is fired in a straight line with this Wind element art. All enemies in its path are hit, and can have Seal Craft set on them.
