    ■ Characters

    Van Arkride (voiced by Daisuke Ono)

    • Age: 25

    • Height: 180cm

    • Affiliations: Arkride Solutions Office

    • Weapon: Stun Caliber

    The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II -CRIMSON SiN-

    A young man who works as the head of the Arkride Solutions Office in Edith City, and a self-professed lover of sweets, saunas, and orbal vehicles.

    As a Spriggan, he differs from the police or bracers in that he handles requests in the “gray” area, but is well connected in both the public and underworld of society due to his work.

    While searching for the eight prototype orbments known as the “Oct-Genesis” at Agnes’ request, he transformed into the bluish-black creature known as Grendel through the Hollow Core Mare installed to his combat orbment, and fought against the mafia organization Almata in various places.

    With the destruction of Almata, whose struggle over Genesis terrified the Republic, the members of the Office temporarily disbanded.

    Van currently seems to be living his hard-boiled days (his words) alone and carefree in an empty office.

    Agnes Claudel (voiced by Miku Itou)

    • Age: 16

    • Height: 158cm

    • Affiliations: Aramis High School, Arkride Solutions Office

    • Weapon: Orbal Staff

    The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II -CRIMSON SiN-

    A first-year student at Aramis High School, a prestigious school in Edith City, and a member of the student council and General Affairs department.

    Characterized by her polite speech and tidy-and-kind atmosphere, she has a strong will that can never be tainted—even in the face of the “darkness” of society and “gray matters” that come with being a Spriggan.

    She met Van while searching for the eight prototype orbments known as the “Oct-Genesis”—the legacy of her great grandfather—and continues her search as she works part-time as his assistant.

    With seven of the eight Genesis in-hand, she is currently preparing for the School Arts Festival while regularly helping out at the Office and searching for the Eighth Genesis.

    While she respects Van as head of the Office, she also seems to hold special feelings for him…

    The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II -CRIMSON SiN-

    An A-rank bracer in the Republic of Calvard who works as an ace under the nickname “Sword Maiden.”

    Her master-class skills with a sword and dignified good-looks have made her the center of media attention, but she has declined interviews from every industry, including model magazines and acting, outside of any coverage as a poster girl the Bracer Guild.

    During her school days, she spent the brief flowers of her youth with Van as sweethearts, but he disappeared one day without warning. Seven years later, they reunited.

    While their strained relationship continued with each holding onto the past, they were able to gradually meet each other halfway.

    —Meanwhile, news comes in that the Central Intelligence Department’s Gamma Squad was slaughtered by someone in a corner of Edith City, and that a “crimson beast” was found at the scene…

    ■ Story

    S.1209. After the threat of the mafia organization Armata was gone, the Republic of Calvard regained its former peace.

    But one day, in a corner of Edith City, a bizarre incident occurs in which a CID (Central Intelligence Department) special operations squad was found slaughtered.

    The Calvard Police and Bracer Guild begin investigating the matter. But sensing that a new time of chaos may come, underground factions also start making moves.

    Meanwhile, Spriggan Van Arkride also begins his investigation, kickstarted by a visit from an unexpected someone.

    Who is the culprit behind the massacre? Why did they do it? And what will happen to Agnes, who is searching for the Eighth Genesis, the last legacy of her great grandfather?

    The brutish roar of a crimson beast, and an encounter with a young boy and girl seeking “something” will lead them down a “Trail” that they cannot escape.
