■ Characters

Aurelia Le Guin

“It is good to show the young birds the spirit of the Ashen Chevalier as much as possible.”

  • Age: 32

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III

A woman who at a young age became fully proficient in the two major schools of swordsmanship—Vander and Arseid—and is the countess of the Le Guin family also known by the name “Golden Rakshasa.”

During the civil war, she fought against the Imperial Army of Erebonia as the general commander of the Noble Alliance, launched the Panzer Soldats Unit as a new weapon with her trusted friend Wallace Bardias, and as the invincible and undefeated, continued to achieve overwhelming military results.

After the civil war, Aurelia received news of lord Cayenne’s official arrest, and withdrew to the marine fort, which is the base of western Erebonia, in response to the Imperial Army’s ceasefire.

During the Northen War a few months later, in negotiation with the Imperial government, she mobilized her army to invade North Ambria and annex it as a new Imperial territory. After that, she retired from the military and entrusted future affairs to Wallace, but for some reason assumes the office of principle at the Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School.

Towa Herschel

“As a graduate of the same Thors, let’s overcome it together!”

  • Age: 21

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III

A woman who appears young, but is brilliant and hard working, and becomes the professor in charge of “Class IX: Accounting Division” at Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School.

She showcased her ability as the student council president when she attended Thors Military Academy, when she dealt with the disorder at the Imperial Summer Solstice Festival, and at the Crossbell Trade Conference.

During the civil war, as the captain of the cruiser Courageous, she also contributed to the liberation of the Imperial capital with her superior commanding capability.

She was in great demand after graduation, but as a study to ascertain the “future of the Empire,” she participated in various non-governmental organization (NGO) activities all around the Empire—.

In doing this, Towa, who sensed that the Empire will soon walk a turbulent path, chooses the road of education at Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School in order to preserve the spirit of Thors and improve the Empire’s situation, even if only by a little.

“Schwarzer, what is sought here is not a heroic deed by The Ashen Knight.”

  • Age: 28

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III

A serious and straight-laced elite special duty major of the Railway Military Police.

During the civil war, he fought alongside Prince Olivert while supporting the Imperial Army that was driven into the western part of the Empire.

While he has an open rivalry against Claire Rieveldt, also known as the “Ice Maiden” and who is of the same rank as him, he seems to somewhat worry about her.

He is dispatched to Thors Military Academy Reaves II Branch School as a chief professor, but his purpose is to monitor Aurelia, a target of necessary caution, and uses the school as a countermeasure against Jaeger and societies that maneuver in secret.
