The mastermind behind the war in the name of “liberation”
The King of Bern. He is the perpetrator who ordered his armies to invade the neighboring countries, engulfing the entire continent of Elibe in the flames of war.
After having been poisoned by his father –the former king of Bern—he felt humans were hopeless beings, and grew opposed to them. He had transformed to a mad King. He won the loyalty and admiration of Bern’s army through his outstanding leadership and skills in the art of war.

“Humans are always quarreling; even fighting their own flesh and blood… is true peace a world without war?” He would always say these words to his younger sister Guinevere. As he was broken as a son and victim of a power play, he had deemed humans hopeless due to their stupidity.
With the belief he could end fighting by the means of using power to rule the world, he finally decided to invade every country. However, the true intention was to bring about liberation through destruction –and utilized the power of Dragons with the aim to bring an end to the world.

「人はたえず争っている 血で血を洗うようなものでも 戦争さえなければそれは平和といえるのか。」妹ギヌヴィアに語ったこの言葉がすべてを物語る。権力のためなら息子にまで手をかける、人のおろかさにゼフェールは絶望したのだ。
力をもって世界を統治すれば争いはなくせるとの信念の元、ついに各国へ進攻する。だが、その裏で竜の力による世界の「開放=破滅」まで目論んだ。
