     Legendary Heroes 
There are twelve legendary heroes. They are featured prominently in the game's backstory, and they tend to have higher stats than other heroes.

Leon of Light

The first legendary hero acquired in the game, Leon was one of six unique heroes who aided the Goddesses in their fight against the Apostles. The six heroes died during the war, but a prophecy stated that the heroes would be resurrected in the future.

  • Big Fancy Sword: Leon carries a huge sword on his back, and his passive ability drops a gigantic sword on the enemies' frontlines.
  • Bishounen: As noted by Sera. He even jokes that the power he inherited as the reincarnation of O'Ren was his pretty face (before admitting he actually doesn't know what power was bestowed on him).
  • Bling of War: Leon takes the Knight in Shining Armor to rather literal extremes, wearing lavish, gold-trimmed plate mail and wielding a sapphire-encrusted sword.
  • It's All About Me: Leon felt this way about being a hero until this belief nearly resulted in his death.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: He became this later in his career.
  • Noodle Incident: Not much is said about Leon's near-death experience other than that he almost died, endangered a lot of other people, deeply regrets it.
  • Past-Life Memories: Leon doesn't remember his life as O'Ren very clearly, but he experiences a very strong sense of deja vu and feels as though he's known the other Chronos heroes his entire life before he even meets them.
  • Public Domain Artifact: Leon's Soulbound Weapon is a gigantic golden sword named Excalibur, which boosts damage, armor penetration, and critical chance values.
  • Shining Goodness: Leon of Light literally radiates a divine, evil-banishing light when he enters battle.

Victor Rochefort

A former fencing instructor, now a Tristan admiral, Rochefort is a laid-back, smug, and colorful character. He accompanies Roland of Honor on the latter's quest to track down the Black Sister, Melissa.

  • Badass Mustache: Rochefort has a musketeer mustache in the shape of a bow.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Rochefort definitely qualifies as one. He stops in the Manacar Dungeon to admire a statue of a woman, and he teases Roland about the latter's crush on the Saintess Maria. However, Rochefort's heart belongs to one person, D'Artagnan of Iron Will.
  • Counter Attack: Rochefort is an avoidance tank whose playstyle involves blocking attacks and responding to each attack he blocks with a flurry of his own.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Rochefort wears an eyepatch to cover his missing left eye.
  • Hidden Depths: Rochefort acts laid-back, but he can be very serious when the situation calls for it.
  • Honor Before Reason: Discussed. Roland believes that Melissa is a criminal who should be brought to justice, but Rochefort believes she is innocent. He also lectures Roland not to let faith blind him to the truth, shaking Roland's composure.
  • Nice Hat: Rochefort wears a red musketeer hat with a feather.
  • Royal Rapier: Rochefort's Soulbound Weapon is a rapier called the Allegro Asai. It creates a personal damage shield when Rochefort counterattacks.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: Rochefort is the wise guy to Roland's straight man.
  • True Companions: Rochefort and Roland often annoy each other, but they find common ground on their journey. More specifically, they are both glad to have someone to watch the other's back.

A demon hunter, Kriemhild is experienced in combat. However, she was cursed by a demon to sleep forever. Her lover, Siegfried, saved her by taking her curse for himself. Kriemhild defended Siegfried from nearby demons until a Goddess made her an offer. The Goddess would help wake up Siegfried, and Kriemhild would help the former to save the world. Kriemhild decided to accept in order to help Siegfried.

  • An Axe to Grind: Kriemhild's Soulbound Weapon, the Balmung of Massacre, boosts Kriemhild's flame spouts and increases her attack speed.
  • Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: Kriemhild's Soulbound Weapon also turns her last flame spout into a fiery dragon.
  • I Will Wait for You: When Siegfried took Kriemhild's curse, she vowed to stay by his side until he woke up.

Roland of Honor

A former orphan, Roland became a paladin and the bodyguard to the Saintess Maria. He currently hunts the Black Sister, Melissa, and he is fully committed to his duty, which puts him at odds with Victor Rochefort.

  • Bodyguard Crush: Played straight, even though he keeps denying it. Rochefort even mentions that Roland reveres Maria like a Goddess.
  • Light 'em Up: Roland's Soulbound Weapon, the Spreading Light, uses light rays to stun opponents and deal magic damage.
  • The Paladin: Probably the most archetypal Paladin within the class.

  • Our Elves Are Better: Of the Wood Elf variety
  • Rags to Riches: Born into poverty and desperate to support her family, Sigruna joined the Elite Guard because it was the only way for an elf of her caste to climb the social latter.
  • Rain of Arrows: Sigruna's passive calls down a storm of arrows that deal magic damage.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Tree bark. As an elf from the lowest caste, Sigruna was only allowed to eat feasts of tree bark.
