- Height: 180cm
“That’s what the job is about. Never underestimate a Spriggan. ”
A young “Spriggan” with blue-striped black hair and deep blue eyes, working mainly in the old town of the capital Edith.
While coming out as dry and pragmatic, he does not try to be sincere and is not bad at taking care of others.
He has contact with people in different industries because of his work and seems to have a wide range of personal connections, but also has a side that
does not allow people to get too personal with him.
Even though he started working as Spriggan almost by pure chance, he likes his lifestyle, and even though he complains when he has to deal with bad jobs, he still makes sure to deal with it.
- Age: 16
- Arms: Orbal personnel
- Affiliation: Aramis High School (first year student)
- Height: 158cm
“I understand Mr. Van’s style … but there are some compromises even students can not make!”
A first-year student at Aramis High School, a prestigious academy in the capital.
A girl with a nice and gentle atmosphere and beautiful long blond hair, but great willpower behind her cool eyes.
She is taking an orbal personnel defense course as an elective at her school and is also a member of the student council. While working with her close friends, she strives every day in the General Affairs department.
When Agnes was told that someone had stolen the “Orbment” left by her great-grandfather, who died due to certain circumstances, Agnes avoided consulting the police and the Bracer Guild and instead made a request to the “Arkride Solution Office,” which accepts any job …
- Age: 13
- Arms: Assault Sword
- Affiliation: Kurgha soldiers
- Height: 150 cm
“I will protect you … with the blessing of the flame and the goddess Arusha!”
A girl with brown skin, short hair and a small body, who is also a young member of the senior hunter corps “Kurgha Soldiers.”
Having experienced serious combat training since childhood, she shows her tough hunter side in combat, but since she is a young girl unfamiliar with a big city, she also shows reactions expected of a girl her age in daily life.
After receiving word that a hunting corps she had previously networked with had suddenly disappeared, Feri begins her own search. Meanwhile, she tries to contact the Republic’s “Spriggans”, about whom she heard rumors.
- Age: 19
- Arms: Twin Fencer
- Affiliation: None
- Height: 175cm
“Do not get in the way, old man … If you can not understand the way of the Eastmen.”
A playboy who had made a name for himself as a philander in the massive eastern quarter of the Republic and the leader of the warm-blooded youth.
While master of swords and fists in “Moon Flower Style”, one of three great martial arts styles, he never stops attracting the attention of others with other feats like making lots of money at a casino and performing sword dancing in the Eastern Theater as a female role.
Because of his extravagant demeanor, he is nicknamed “Prodigy” and “Young Emperor of Luo Zhou.”
There are movements to appoint him executive in “Heiyue,” the syndicate that dominates the Easterner Quarter, but he himself does not appear to have much interest in the organization.
More characters coming soon
At least four additional characters are scheduled to be announced who are aged 20, 15, 22 and 69.
■ Setting / keywords
Republic of Calvard
One of the largest nations on the continent, located in Midwest Zemuria.
Originally a monarch, it became a democratic republic after the democratic revolution that took place a hundred years ago.
After many years of bloody war over Crossbell, located between Calvard and the vast empire of Erebonia in western Zemuria, Crossbell regained its independence as an autonomous state after several years of events …
Although Calvard no longer receives tax dividends from the autonomous state, the enormous compensation from the empire brought an unprecedented economic boom, and it is rising to become the top nation on the continent in economic and military affairs.
The capital Edith
The capital of the Calvard Republic and the largest metropolis on the continent.
Places include Revolution Plaza, which faces the President’s Office, and Republic Assembly Hall, which was built 90 years ago; the prestigious high school that produces many elites; districts lined with publishers and orbal cinemas; the old city untouched by development; the commercial district facing the river; and on the main street you can see “White feather trees” on the roads.
As the continent’s leading superpower for orbal vehicles, a number of vehicles drive along the streets, and traffic lights were introduced here before other countries. It is also known to be the first city on the continent to adopt a “metro” system instead of a tram network.
A kind of “underground occupation” born of the melting pot of diversity that is the Republic of Calvard. Some days as detectives, some days as dealers and other days as bounty hunters, they are ready for any job from any client.
Since cases that are publicly accepted are meant to be dealt with by the police and the Bracer Guild, the line of work that comes to them tends to be the ones that the CID (Central Intelligence Department) does not want to hand over to the guild, citizen unpublished consultations, and even “honest” work by criminal and underground organizations.
■ New combat system
IN The Legend of the Half: Kuro no Kiseki, the command style AT (Action Time) combat system used so far in the series has been modernized. With a unique new system that seamlessly transitions from action battles in the field to command style battles, you can enjoy even faster and more strategic battles.
(1) When you spot an enemy in the field, you can start an action battle. (You can also avoid the fight.)
(2) During an action battle, you can switch to a command battle by inserting the battle circle “Xipha.” (When Xipha is withdrawn, return to (1) so that you can switch back to an action battle.)
Use various actions in the field, including combination attacks and dodges
You can perform various actions on the field, including combination attacks and strong attacks on targeted enemies, and if you are in a party, you can freely switch between characters in the middle of the battle. And since the enemy side will also launch various attacks on the player side, actions like adjusting your position on the field and evasion are crucial to avoid damage.
—Attack direct enemies on the field with combination attacks!
—Each character has their own evasive actions.
Command battles: Strategic battle with crafts, art and other turn-based actions
In command battles, the battle continues by selecting commands such as Standard Attack, Craft, Arts and Items as hitherto done in the series.
By remembering your actions, e.g. By using craftsmanship with different effects and art from the seven elements (earth, water, fire, wind, time, space and mirage), you can even compete against stronger enemies on an equal footing.
In addition, you can receive a temporary boost with the “Xipha” battle circle, and if a party member is nearby, you can activate additional attacks – or additional effects such as sharing each other’s art.
—Select a command for each character to act.
—Double damage with Arts attack according to the attribute.
—When a craft is used, the camera work shifts to deepen the struggle!
—Enable additional effects with the “Xipha.”
The Legend of the Half: Kuro no Kiseki expected to be released in 2021 in Japan for unannounced platform (s).
