022 Noah

The lone mercenary sees something in the midst of battle.
A member of the Ilian Mercenaries. Following Zelots’ instructions, he joined Roy’s forces, and remained an ally afterward. He tries to avoid forming deep bonds with other people, thanks to the self-awareness that despite his skill, as a mercenary, he may not live to see another day. After the war, he left the mercenary group and travelled on a solitary journey, wandering about.

A mercenary has an occupation where one does not know when they will die. So, it is best to avoid making deep friendships when possible. It would result in less pain… Noah followed these words of wisdom as a mercenary.
However, while fighting with Roy’s party, his way of thinking began to change, thanks to advice from Juno and especially due to meeting Fir.
From a support conversation with Fir, one can see he makes a great effort to break out of his shell and finally develop a strong bond with somebody.

孤高の傭兵は戦いの中に何を見る
 イリア傭兵騎士団の一員。ゼロットの指示に従ってロイたちと合流、以後仲間になる。傭兵としての腕は確かだが、傭兵という明日をも知れぬ身であることを自覚しているせいか、他人と深く関わることを避けてきた。動乱終結後は傭兵団を退団、自分の力を試すために放浪の旅に出る。

 傭兵は明日をも知れぬ、死ととなり合わせの職業。だから、親しい人はなるべく作らないほうがいい。そのほうが苦しみが少なくて済む……。これが傭兵ノアの処世術だった。
 だが、ロイたちとともに戦い、ユーノにさとされ、そして何よりファルとの出会いにより、そんな考えも少しずつ変わっていく。
 ファルとの支援会話からは、自分の殻をうち破り、積極的に誰かと親しくなろうと努力するノアの姿がうかがえる。
