Citizens of the Empire Section
A good-natured young man, Rean is starting a new chapter of his life at Thors Military Academy. Although often broadsided by the strangeness of the school's student body, he takes it all in stride, proving a trustworthy friend and ally to his classmates. Trained in the Eastern Eight Leaves One Blade style of swordsmanship, Rean performs his techniques with a saber-like sword called a tachi.
Alisa is a friendly and capable girl who's not afraid to hold a grudge if you get on her bad side. While she doesn't share much of her personal life with the rest of Class VII, her knowledge of business and technology often comes in handy, and her keen archery skills make her a valuable asset in battle.
A gentle-hearted boy whose openness allows him to become fast friends with just about anyone. He has a deep interest in music and fights using an orbal staff, an advanced weapon currently in the prototype stages of development.
Laura S. Arseid
As the only daughter of the renowned Arseid line, famous for their school of swordfighting, Laura has been raised steeped in the knightly tradition. But while she's a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield with her massive greatsword, the academy's halls can pose just as much of a challenge.
The second son of Duke Albarea, one of the Empire's most powerful nobles. Jusis' status ensures students from Erebonia's well-to-do families will flock to him hoping to gain his favor, but he doesn't especially seem to enjoy the attention. Jusis fights with the nimble technique of court fencing, a style favored by the country's aristocracy.
Machias possesses a keen and intelligent mind, making him one of the academy's top performers. He also possesses a vitriolic hate for the Empire's noble class and no hesitation to make that opinion known, which has a tendency of getting him into trouble. He fights with a high-powered orbal shotgun.
Taciturn and mysterious, Fie exhibits an aptitude for combat far beyond her years when she's on the battlefield. On campus, though, she's either uninterested in her classes or too lazy to put any effort into them. She's equipped with a pair of gunswords which, combined with her natural agility, allow her to quickly strike enemies both up close and at a distance.
A polite and gracious demeanor belies Emma's status as perhaps the academy's brightest student. Not content with just the top score on the entrance exam, she regularly tops the charts on midterms as well. Emma serves as Class VII's president, and like Elliot, fights with a prototype orbal staff.
An exchange student from the Nord Highlands on the Empire's northern border. Gaius came to Thors wanting to learn more about Erebonia and the world, both to discover his place in it, and to help safeguard his homeland. He wields a unique cross-shaped spear, a weapon as foreign to the Empire as he is.
