The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II

Last week’s The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II update introduced main characters Rean, Alisa, Eliot, and Laura, as well as the game’s prologue. This week’s introduces Tovar and Claire, and a village that specializes in hot springs.

Find the new information below.

Tovar Randonneur (27 years-old, Weapon: Orbment Device and Stun Gun)
CV: Tomokazu Sugita

“That’s a little piece of advice my senpai once gave me.”

Tovar spends his days as a fighter working for the Bracer Guild, a private civilian support group for the empire spread throughout the entire continent dedicated to things like conflict resolution and investigations. Given that his options are limited for actually working as a fighter within the empire, he teams up with a group of people including Sara, an old co-worker, who work with him to reform the guild as they keep going about their day job. While he knows his way around a weapon, what he’s really known for are his custom orbment techniques, which allow him to quickly shoot off his Arts. Having already known Rean and company from the previous game, he encounters her again, having since been left all alone for reasons unknown, and opts to work with her as well.

Claire Rieveldt (24 years-old, Weapon: Military Revolver)
CV: Miyu Matsuki

“I’m taking it upon myself to end this civil war myself one way or another.”

She operates as a captain in the empire’s army and is highly renowned for being the best they have. Her appearance coupled with her ability to make quick decisions on how to order imperial troops stationed throughout the rail lines nationwide has earned her the nickname the “Ice Maiden.” She was under the direct supervision of Prime Minister Osbourne, but failed to prevent his assassination at the hand of terrorists at the end of the last game. She also Rean and the others in the previous game, having swapped information with them, and ends up helping her out again as she engages in a covert mission in which she dresses up as a civilian.

Hot Springs Village of Ymir

A hot springs village governed by the family of Baron Schwarzer in the northern mountains of the Erebonia Empire. It is said the gushing springs are effective against all kinds of sicknesses. In the winter, the village is hit with heavy snowfall. The emperor has an imperial lodge here, and cable cars go to and from the station at the village’s foot. In this game, we’ll learn the whole story behind Rean’s hometown.
