094 Heath

One who seeks the ideal way of the warrior
A former member of the Kingdom of Bern’s famed wyvern knights. He tried to prevent his superiors from massacring a group of nonresistant villagers, and was charged with treason. He fled Bern as a result. Afterward he joined a mercenary group, but ended up joining Eliwood’s group that consisted of women and children that he could not bear to harm.

Profile
Gender——————————————–Male
Estimated Age————————————-20s
Title——————–Borderless Wyvern Knight
Origin———————————————Bern
Status—————————————Mercenary
Weapon—————————— Lance / Sword

He has a sense of justice unlike any other soldier, and is often self-depreciating of the fact he had come to Bern and join a rebel uprising in Ostia. He wonders about the disparity about the ideal image of a knight and the reality of it. Once he meets with his former superior Vaida again, he sympathizes with her having learned she too once pursued the ideal image of a knight and had given up. Also in a conversation with Priscilla, despite noticing the differences between them, he also recognizes the love that forms between them.

かつてはベルン王国の誇る竜騎士団の一員だった。上官が手柄欲しさに無抵抗の村人を虐殺しようとしたとき、それを止めようとしたため反逆罪に問われ、ベルンから逃亡した。その後傭兵団に身を投じるが、女性や子供のいるエリウッド一行を攻撃するの是とせず、仲間に加わる。

軍人には向かないほど正義感が強く、逃亡の身となったことやオスティアへの謀反に加わったことを卑下している部分を持つ。騎士たる者かくあるべきという理想と現実との格差に思い悩んでいるようだ。かつての上官であったヴァイダとの再会では、自分と同じように自らの理想を追い求めてやまぬ、彼女の姿に共感する。またプリシラとの会話では、身分の違いを気にするが、やがて愛はすべてを超えることに気づく。
