Two familiar faces return in The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II

As usual, spoiler warning ahoy for the events of the first game.

The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II

As is custom around this time every month, Falcom has seen fit to release a handful of new character profiles for The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II, which is in development for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

Like in previous instances, these profiles both cover characters that appeared in the previous game. As such, there’s a potential risk of spoilers being discussed openly without warning for those who haven’t cleared the first installment.

Read on for the details.

Towa Herschel (voiced by Ai Nonaka)
Age: 18
Weapon: Magic Gun

“I’ve… I’ve been worried sick about you, you know!”

Towa is Thors Military Academy’s current student council president. A short woman with a childish-looking face, she’s a hard worker who’s won the esteem of aristocrats and commoners alike as a star student and someone with stellar conduct. In spite of her status as a student, she was invited to attend events such as the West Zemuria Commerce Conference in Crossbell as a staff member, which earned her a highly favorable reputation with the imperial government. When the civil war intensifies, she receives an important mission from a certain someone, but….

Angelica Rogner (voiced by Naomi Shindo)
Age: 19
Weapon: Manifers

“Feh. If you intend to stand in our way, then I won’t hesitate to beat you down and put you in your place!”

A daughter of the Rogner Marquis, one of the Four Great Noble Families, Angelica is a mentor to Rean and company at Thors Military Academy as a student in the year ahead of them. A quirky, yet beautiful woman, she dons a biker outfit and goes around on an Orbal motorcycle. Rumored to be engaged in romantic relationships with any number of her fellow female students, she leads a life as a student that many would consider uncouth for a daughter from such a high-end noble upbringing. After an incident that takes place in the Luure Iron Mountain, her father becomes indignant at her, resulting in her being forcibly dropped out of Thors, albeit officially under the cover of taking time off. She ends up giving Rean her beloved motorcycle and departing from the school henceforth.

The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II is set to release September 25 for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.
