Falcom recently opened up the official website for the newest Legend of Heroes title, Hajimari no Kiseki. The website provides more details on one faction of characters in the game, the Crossbell state, and one of the game's three protagonists, police inspector Lloyd Bannings. Keep in mind that there may be spoilers within, so be forewarned.
First up, here's a new piece of key artwork from Hajimari no Kiseki, "The Day of Reindependence."
Next, let's get into the characters themselves.
The leader of the Crossbell Police Department's Special Support Section. Lloyd has an "indomitable spirit" and a strong sense of justice. After fighting for the liberation of Crossbell, he has resumed his police duties and awaits the Reindependence Signing Ceremony.
Beautiful and intelligent, Elie MacDowell is the granddaughter of Crossbell's council chairman Henry MacDowell. She currently works as a secretary for her grandfather, working on matters of diplomacy.
A member of Lloyd's squad and a researcher by trade. Tio has worked with members of the Erebonian Empire's Class VII in the past, and became good friends with Alisa Reinford and Tita Russell. She is also an Orbal researcher.
A man with a big gun, Randy is a senior member of the Special Support Section, and used to belong to the Red Constellation jaeger corps. He served as an instructor in the Empire, before returning to his homeland.
The next "ace" of the Crossbell Guardian Force. Noel is a heavy weapons specialist, and has since been promoted to "second lieutenant" in the wake of Reindependence.
A mysterious and androgynous man. He is also known as "Blue Testament" as the 9th Dominion, and a Knight who belongs to the Gralsritter (I'm going to go out on a limb and assume this makes sense to Legend of Heroes fans). He is returning to the land of Crossbell alongside "new partners."
