Falcom has once again put out more details for a handful of characters that players can expect to see once again in The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. As has been the case for a while, these descriptions contain unmarked spoilers, so trudge forward with caution. Read on below for our translation.
Sharon Kluger (voiced by Yukana)
Weapon: Steel threads and daggers
“I have a shred of neither mercy nor compassion for you left in me. I’ll cut you down right where you stand.”
A servant of the Reinford family, Sharon is an administrator at Thors Military Academy in chage of Student Dormitory 3 and has the utmost respect of Alisa as an older sister figure. A graceful worker whose cooking and various other skills are of the highest caliber, she had a real knack for knowing just when to show up to help Rean and company as they’re out training throughout the empire. As it turns out, she’s a member of Ouroboros all along as Executor Number IX, aka “Klugar the Reaper.” When Trista is under attack by the aristocratic alliance, she reveals her true self to those needing to know before heading off to the frontlines to join Sara and the others in battle. To hear her tell it, she’s “taking a break” from being an Executor for the time being, but…
Rufus Albarea (voiced by Daisuke Hirakawa)
Weapon: Knight Sword
“The Lion War is back with a vengeance and I’m leaving it to you all to work in the shadows of it.”
Considered to be one of the major pillars within the Four Great Noble Families, Rufus is the eldest son in the Albarea family and is as such one of the most prominent noble figures, dominating high society conversations alongside Prince Olivert. Highly trusted by his younger brother Jusis, he also happens to be fencing instructor at the imperial court. He works at the military academy as an able member of the board of directors, candidly able to mingle with commoners well. Nevertheless, as someone deemed to exist at the very center of the aristocracy, reformists regard him as a dangerous element that must be watched over carefully. In order to reestablish the imperial social order that places commoners under the rule of aristocrats, he teams up with Lord Kaien as a General Staff Officer within the aristocratic alliance to take hold of all of the imperial dominion.
The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II is planned for release on the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita on September 25. Check out the gallery for a new batch of screenshots and artwork.
