028 Fir

A swordswoman of unknown ability who is the niece of the Sword Saint.
A swordswoman from the plains of Sacae. She yearns to be like her mother who was gifted in swords, and so is on a journey to polish her sword arm. She is incredibly innocent, and so ignorant to the ways of the world, making her quite gullible. She was easily tricked by pirates on the Western Isles into going against Roy. However, by chance she met with Noah again, and soon joined the United Lycian Army.

Profile
Gender—————————————Female
Estimated Age———————————Teen
Title———————–Sword Saint’s Successor
Origin——————————————Sacae
Status——————Wandering Swordswoman
Weapon—————————————Sword

Usually the female warriors of Sacae use bows over swords. Despite that, Fir chose the sword and aspires to be like her late mother, as well as her uncle Karel whom she admires deeply.
She eventually reunites with Karel within the United Lycian Army, and continues to train day by day. She still has ways to go before being able to inherit the title “Sword Saint.”
Nevertheless, her father Bartr says she is blessed with the face of her mother.

剣聖を伯父に持つ女剣士その実力は未知数
 サカ地方出身の剣士。天才的な剣士であった母に憧れ、剣の腕をみがくために修行の旅をしている。きまじめで純粋だが、世間知らずでだまされやすい一面も。西方三島では海賊たちにあっさりだまれロイたちと敵対するが、偶然再会したノアの手引きでリキア同盟軍に参加する。

 サカの女性で戦場に立つ者は、ふつう剣ではなく弓を選ぶ。それでもファルが剣を選んだのは、今は亡き母への憧れ、そしてファルの伯父である「剣聖」カレルの存在が大きい。
 ロイ率いるリキア同盟軍でカレルと再会を果たしてからも、彼女の修行の日々は続く。彼女が「剣聖」の名を受けつぐには、まだまだ時間が必要なようだ。
 それにしても、父親であるバアトルを見るにつけ、彼女が母親似であるのは幸いである。
