Nihon Falcom revealed four more sub-characters that will appear in The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki. Two of the characters shown — Renne Bright and the female assassin, Yin — are returning from prior Trails series. Falcom also introduced Ellroy Harwood, a member of the Ouroboros, and Gerard Dantès, the menacing boss of a mafia organization. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
The recurring character from the Trails series will also appear in Kuro no Kiseki. Now 17 years old, Renne Bright is studying in her second year at Aramis High School. Despite being a transfer student from Liberl’s Jenis Royal Academy, her ability to understand situations and solve problems made her appointed as the student council president at Aramis.
Renne is also well-acquainted with Agnès Claudel, the title heroine who is a year younger than her. Their dorm rooms are located next to each other so that they can also interact frequently.
Renne moved from Liberl to Calvard in Spring 1208. However, it seems like she has another reason to enter Calvard other than studying at the prestigious Aramis High School.
The popular Trails series character Rixia Mao will appear in the new title taking place in her homeland. However, she will mask her face and assume her professional assassin codename, Yin.
She once again cooperates with Cao Lee‘s Heiyue syndicate in Kuro no Kiseki. But her true objective is to make sure her hometown receives minimal damage from the confrontation between Heiyue and Almata.
Gerard is the current boss of the mafia organization Almata. A few years ago, he purged the previous leader Enrique and then installed himself as the new boss. He believes that everything can be controlled with fear. Like-minded strong people gather under him, making Almata so menacing that the police, Bracer Guild, and even other organizations like Heiyue grow wary of it.
Tomokazu Seki will become the voice actor for this 34 year old character.
Aged 47 years old, Harwood is one of the Ouroboros members, currently positioned as the fourth pillar apostle. Before joining Ouroboros, he used to work in another assassin group. Fellow Ouroboros member Lucrezia Isselee also came from the same group.
Takaya Kuroda will provide Japanese voices for Harwood, who is said to have a mysterious power that can even corrode demons in the purgatory.
The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki will be available for the PlayStation 4 in Japan on September 30, 2021, and East Asia in Winter 2021.
