The lowdown here is the same as ever: Falcom has seen fit to release two more biweekly profiles of characters you can expect to find in The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II when it’s out on the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. Catch our translated scoops as well as a load of new artwork and screenshots below. And, of course, unmarked spoiler warnings ahoy for those who haven’t finished the prequel.
Vita Clotilde (voiced by Yukari Tamura)
“Oh, Rean. Why don’t you take it a little easy and let me indulge you a little?”
Vita is a disciple of Ouroboros, acting as its Second Pillar. Also referred to as the “Azure Abyss,” she keeps a bird of the same color called “Grianos.” In the previous game, she was publicly a popular personality on Abend Time, an Orbal radio program, and was also an opera singer for the imperial capitol theater, a role that earned her the title of the “Azure Diva.” Those roles, however, were a cover for her actual work for Ourboros whereby she was secretly working to put their “Phantom Plan” into motion. As the aristocratic alliance was underway in capturing the capitol, she revealed her true form and set to work enacting the Phantom Plan in earnest.
Blbranc (voiced by Hiroaki Miura)
“If you want some sliver of the so-called ‘truth’ you’re after, you’re going to have to find it yourself!”
Also known as the “Phantom Thief,” Blbranc is Enforcer Number X with Ouroboros, a man who takes pleasure in messing around with his opponents by using magic and going after their weaknesses. Working out of the Elbonian Empire as his main base, he garnered the name “Phantom Thief B” due to his knack for showing up all throughout Zemuria. However, as he always has a mask on or sports disguises in order to deceive others, his true face remains a mystery. In the first Sen no Kiseki installment, Blbranc fraudulently held the title of a baron and routinely roped Rean and the other members of Class VII into games revolving around solving riddles so as to test their abilities. He seemingly has an interest in Rean’s latent powers in particular, but, like most everything else revolving around him, the reasons are as of yet unknown.
The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II is poised to come out in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita on September 25.
