Characters

Raven

Intro:

A young swordsman and capable fighter who ended the war against the Harbringers of Calamity. However, to avoid becoming the public “hero” that saved Celis, he faked his own death and now lives on his own, only entering the city when needed.

Aura Abilities: Field, Translocation, Elemental Coating

Backstory:

Born in the slums on another continent, Raven learned to fend for himself at a young age. During his time on Celis, Raven is instructed in basic swordsmanship and the fundamentals of using aura.

Personality:

“Show me a good-looking apple that’s hard to get, and show me a bad-looking one that I can get pretty easily. I’ll take the bad-looking one over the good-looking one any day.”

Due to his upbringing, he tends to run away from anything that is risky or otherwise makes him uncomfortable.

Despite this, he is usually cheerful and playful, making jokes and snide remarks when others are around. However, because he’s usually alone, no one knows if that’s how he really is, or it’s just a facade.

Valerie

Intro:

A prodigious expert at swordsmanship and lover of competition, after Valerie clashes with Raven in the arena, she can’t let go of their unfinished match and seeks him out once more. However, doing so will embroil her in a series of events that will ultimately lead to the truth of her father’s disappearance—one that she had almost given up on searching for.

Aura Abilities: Field, Teleportation

Backstory:

As a master swordsman, Valerie’s father saw to it that if Valerie ever needed to, she would at least be able to hold her own in a fight. However, Valerie enjoyed training every day and surpassed his expectations, hoping to one day best her mentor in a match. But with her father’s disappearance, her swordsmanship and katana serve as her only remaining connections to him, and her wish may never be granted.

Personality:

“You’re right, I don’t know what will happen. It’s possible I’ll never come back, like my father. But I’m sure he felt like it was something he needed to do, or he wouldn’t have left like he did. He just wasn’t that type of person. You don’t ever feel that way?”

Valerie is typically kind and compassionate towards others, but is especially fond of kids and respectful of her elders, sympathizing with children who only have one parent like she did, and admiring the single parents that work to support them.

However, when it comes to fighting, Valerie shows her strong, bold, and confident nature. Because she didn’t grow up with many friends her own age, she can be a bit careless with her words, but she’s quick to apologize when she says something wrong, so it’s hard to hold it against her.
