Characters / Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War

Go To

A list of characters from Koei's Bladestorm The Hundred Years War, and the tropes they embody. The game is loosely based on The Hundred Years' War between the Kingdoms of England and France in the 14th and 15th century, and so includes a variety of real-life historical figures (albeit in often anachronistic order),as well as fictional supporting characters.

Note: The tropes presented here primarily relate to the historical character's in-game personifications.

Tropes common to the England team on the whole include:

Edward, The Black Prince

Sir John Chandos

Sir John Talbot, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury

The King of England (Edward III)

Tropes common to the French team on the whole include:

Joan of Arc (Jeanne d'Arc)

Bertrand de Guesclin

Phillippe Le Bon (Philip III, Duke of Burgundy)
  • Cultured Badass
  • Ermine Cape Effect: His outfit is particularly fancy, even for the French team and includes an actual ermine cape.
  • For Great Justice: He wants nothing more than to bring about peace.
  • Historical Hero Upgrade: Historically, he actually spent most of his time during the war on the side of the English, even being responsible for capturing and handing Joan of Arc over to them in 1430. He would only defect five years later with the Treaty of Arras.
  • Hunk: One of handsomest characters in the game.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Probably the noblest member of the French nobility, even berating his subordinate for leaving the mercenaries without reinforcements. Historically, he also founded the Order of the Golden Fleece, the most prestigious chivalric order in Europe.
  • Martial Pacifist
  • Meaningful Name: Literally, "Philip the Good".
  • Nice Guy: He is a kind and gentle-hearted man.

Arthur De Richemont (Arthur III, Duke of Brittany)

La Hire (Étienne de Vignolles)

Gilles de Rais

Jean de Metz

Christine de Pizan

King of France (Charles VII of France)
  • Composite Character: Unlike the King of England, who is definitively based on Edward III, the King of France stands in for at least three different kings of France, Philippe VI (at Crecy), John II the Good (at Poitiers), and Charles VII the Victorious (after Joan of Arc shows up).

How well does it match the trope?
