099 Harken

The Heroic Knight who devoted his life to avenging his lord
He is the sole survivor of the Pharae Knights that went missing along with Marquess Elbert. Nergal eliminated the knights, and kidnapped Lord Elbert, so Harken sought to infiltrate the “Black Fang” on his own, and wait for a chance to enact his revenge. He is his fellow knight Isadora’s lover, already having pledged to marry her.

Profile
Gender——————————————–Male
Estimated Age————————————-20s
Title————————————Shadow Hero
Origin—————————————-Unknown
Status——————————-Knight of Pherae
Weapon———————————Sword / Axe

Harken became desperate from the heavy guilt he felt from having failed to protect his lord. However, Eliwood forgives him, rather than blaming him, striking a chord with Harken’s heart, who pledges to serve Eliwood. Just from the recruitment conversation with Eliwood alone, one gets a glimpse of Harken’s faithfulness and bravery.
Also, as he is a little too stubborn a person, he does not talk honestly to Isadora who had reunited with him again after great pains, making her cry. He is a bit of a socially awkward man.

主君の仇をとるため自らの身を捧げる、勇敢なる騎士
エルバート侯と共に失踪したフェレ主力騎士団の、唯一の生き残り。ネルガルによって騎士団は壊滅し、同時に主君エルバートを連れ去られてしまった目「黒い牙」に単身潜入、復讐の機会を窺っていた。同じくフェレ騎士であるイサドラとは、結婚を誓いあった間柄である。

主君を守れんなかったという自責と後悔の念は大きく、ハーケンは自棄的になっていた。だが、自分を責めることもなく許したエリウッドの心に打たれ、忠誠を捧げることを誓う。仲間に加わる際のエリウッドとの会話からも、ハーケンの忠実さと勇敢さがうかがえる。
もっとも、ハーケンには人としてやや堅物すぎるきらいがあり、やっとの思いで再会したイサドラにも正直な言葉を伝えられず、泣かせてしまったりもする。不器用な男である。
