A Beer Addict And Ice Maiden Are Two Of Trails in the Flash’s Instructors

By Sato . June 4, 2013 . 3:55pm

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flashs playable characters have a lot going on with features such as specialized attacks and some clashing personalities they’ll have to learn to overcome. Falcom recently introduced some of the instructors of Thors Academy, who also have their own clashing personalities… and some drinking problems.

 

Sara Valestin

Age: 25

Weapon: Gun & Blade

Sara is the female instructor who is in charge of Class VII. She teaches Rean and the others about the tactical use of Orbments, overall martial arts and other practical knowledge material. Her combat style revolves around her usage of a blade and gun, which is a bit unorthodox but boasts quite the fearsome prowess.

 

She may seem like a beautiful woman at first glance, but her private life is quite slovenly, as she can often be found drinking beer while proclaiming, “I live for this drink!” When she’s bored, she likes to take on her disciples, such as Rean, in a good fight. Her ideal man is an attractive middle-aged gentleman; however, she seems to be having trouble finding a match.

 

Claire

Age: 24

Weapon: Gun

 

 

Claire is a capable female officer, who is part of the Train Military Police section of the Empire’s army, and is one of the Iron Breed under Girias Osborn. She has a pretty appearance which is rare for an active duty officer such as herself, however, Claire also goes by the name “Ice Maiden” after accomplishing every military campaign, showing strong will in her conduct and capacity. It is said that even the nobles are cautious of Claire.

 

Rufus Albarea

Age: 27

Weapon: Sword

 

 

003

Rufus is Jusis’ older brother and the inheritor of the Duke Albarea’s part of the Four Noble Families. His aristocractic appearance and mannerisms fit well with his title. When he’s around the locals, Rufus is open-hearted and doesn’t display any arrogance; however, he occasionally throws out noble-minded comments, such as, “A social class system is mandatory for the empire.”

 

He has high influences in various parts of the empire, and seems to actively suppress any reformists in the area.

 

Major Neithardt

Age: 29

Weapon: Military grade Saber

 

004

Neithardt is an instructor at the Thors Academy, but he was previously a hero from the Fourth Armored Division of the empire’s army. He’s a handsome man, seems to lack earnest amiability. He doesn’t discriminate or play favorites during military drills, and has no problem making the noble students work just as hard as the others.

 

Neithardt seems to be a little suspicious of Class VII’s instructor, Sara, who he admits is skilled but doesn’t approve of her attitude towards life and her lenient way of teaching, which often results in conflict between the two instructors.

 

Vandyck

Age: 70

Weapon: Long Sword

005

Vandyck is an honorary general of the Empire’s army, and is currently serving as the head of Thors Academy. He has a large figure close to 2 meters (roughly 6’5”) and he still retains his skill in martial arts, which he sometimes displays in a playful manner with students in training.

 

He cooperated with the imperial director, to gather many excellent stuff members, such as Sara, to establish Class VII, which marks the first trial for the traditional Thors Academy.

 

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash comes out in Japan on September 26 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

    In before comments about XSEED.

      About XSEED:

      Xseed is a pretty cool guy. Localizes gud games and doesn’t afraid of anything.

      • Leon_Tekashi

        Inb4, Senran Kagura, due to how people are in NA with stuff like that.

    • Anime10121

      And I shall deliver! PLEASE XSEED GIMMEH SOME TRAILS!!!

      http://switchbacks.net/images3/trail_013.jpg

    • Slayven19

      Fine with me because I want xseed to lose the publishing rights so someone else can get them.

      • DesmaX

        Like someone else would want to localize this

      • Zharkiel

        These games already have an abyssmal chance to be brought over, other publishers just flat out said no. There’s even a rumour floating around where a certain someone from xseed flat out said no when he was asked to translate the games.

        I’m with you on the thought that I wish someone else willing to take more risks than xseed would grab the rights and bring us the games, I’ll settle for Garharv Namco quality even! But sadly, it just ain’t happening.

        • Warboss Aohd

          ya could ask GaijinWorks.

          no guarantee, but it’s worth a shot.

        • Slayven19

          Well they probably said no most of them were only on psp at the time and the psp market was bad here. Sure they were on PC but rarely if anything ever is localized alone on PC. Some of the games are on ps3 now so maybe if xseed drops it someone else will pick it up.

  • Jah-keem York

    Where’s the full trailer man so much teasing so much build up for this trailer release. So far every full trailer release Falcom has done has been absolutely amazing and breath taking. I want to be amazed again.

    Sara! >_<

    "Her ideal man is an attractive middle-aged gentleman; however, she seems to be having trouble finding a match."

    That's funny because my ideal woman likes to drink and wields both gun and sword. Now only if I could gain a few years…….. =P

    • Sardorim

      Don’t forget this part…

      Neithardt seems to be a little suspicious of Class VII’s instructor, Sara, who he admits is skilled but doesn’t approve of her attitude towards life and her lenient way of teaching, which often results in conflict between the two instructors.

      • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

        That doesn’t lessen my like for her even a bit though lol =)

        • Sardorim

          I never said it would just that she’s being set up for an opposite as a lover later.

  • DesmaX

    I guess I could import this… after someone makes a guide, of course. (And a price drop too). I’m actually managing play play Tits SC pretty well with a guide (I just arived on Chapter 3)

  • Sardorim

    I’ve seen enough anime to know that there will be sexual tension between Sara and Neithardt.

  • Slayven19

    They sound like a pretty cool bunch of people to hang out with and throw a birthday party.

  • Prinny Dood

    Oh please oh please oh please loacalize this and ill never ask for another localization 0 :) × if guys need help use this guide

  • leadintea

    I wonder whether the teachers are going to be playable or just going to be opponents to practice against…

  • http://www.youtube.com/Lyonharvestmoonfan Eduardo Rocha

    Please… bring this to America!

    • Testsubject909

      Will totally buy Day 1.

      • http://www.youtube.com/Lyonharvestmoonfan Eduardo Rocha

        So would I!

  • fyi1191

    I’m curious about the different weapon types they use. Is there a reason to include that info? Are they all going to be playable characters or something?

  • MrTyrant

    Damn those two girls aren’t main characters.

  • Alestaos

    Please bring this to NA/EU, just say yes and a estimated date of arrival for us. So were put out of misery of saying this everytime!

  • Last Star

    If you want this game, start buying XSEED’s localized titles, not just the Trails franchise, but others like Pandora’s Tower and Corpse Party. Buy copies for your friends’ birthdays, etc, but avoid used physical copies. Let action speak for our pleas.

  • fireemblembeast

    Damn, I hope I look that fit when I’m 70…except for the being a man part >_>;

      • fireemblembeast

  • PoweredByHentai

    Many excellent STUFF members. XD

  • Testsubject909

    I already like Sara.

    I’d hang out with her and bar brawl against her.

    Seriously. There’s just something appealing about a woman you can spar or fight no holds barred against. Really, try it, go to a martial art class or something and get someone of the opposite gender as your sparring partner and take them on seriously. (Edit: Just figured I’d underline it because it’s important.)

    It’s just fun.

      Pretty face, check. Boobs, checks. Alcohol lover, check. Awesome weapons, check. Cape, check. Boots, check. Best character confirmed! Please, please make her playable Falcom… Even as a 1000-yen DLC it’s fine.

  • Hours

    I like these characters better than the actual playable characters. (Especially Neidthardt & Vandyck.)

    I hope they join your party at some point.

  • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

    Sara Valestin the Bottle Fairy. You’re all right in my books!

  • http://ryuz4ki57inenglish.wordpress.com/ Thomas FROEHLICHER

    Love those new characters! Reminds me of Star Ocean 3 :) I hope the ladies are playable characters. Even if DLC I don’t mind, your price will be mine Falcom!

  • Kamille

    beer addict? I think you mean an alcoholic… lol

  • Rollersnake

    Oh no, not *gasp* beer! What a scandalous wench!
