Name: Erel Plowse
Age: "21"... oh, come on.
Erel Plowse is a famous mercenary in I-Praseru (or at least she'll tell you so, although she's suspiciously poor for one), sometimes called The Helper Of The Gods (though strangely, nobody seems to call her that on-screen). Her best friend and mentor was another mercenary named Faily The Brave, and the two likely adventured together. Tragically, one day when battling a powerful werewolf, Erel was mortally wounded. Faily, also wounded, managed to defeat the werewolf (though whether she killed it was unknown), and then used her own lifeforce to save Erel's life. Alas, this proved too much for Faily and she died shortly thereafter, leaving the source of her power, the magical armour Nephilm, to her friend.
Distraught, Erel nonetheless donned the powerful armour in memory of her friend, and it remains her most treasured possession. When she isn't wearing it, the armour can be carried around as a harmless-seeming talisman. Its powers are many and mysterious, and while Erel has mastered many of them, she is unaware of its true origin: the armour was originally called Void, and was an artifact created by Kakurine to take control of its wearer and use their body as a host to kill any incarnation of Lea. Fortunately for Erel, it seems Faily's spirit continues to protect her, and her spirit prevents the armour from attempting to possess its host.
Erel's other dearest friend and companion is the court magician Alty Lazal; she has declared herself his girlfriend, and is highly unconcerned with his preferences in the matter. Fortunately, Alty seems happy with this arrangement, even if her referring to him by the nickname "Al" sometimes gets on his nerves.
Erel opposes injustice with all her heart! Also, Alty is really worried about Ihadulca. So for both reasons, and without bothering to consult with her boyfriend, she sets out to end the threat of Ihadulca once and for all. Fight, Erel! For beauty, truth, and the right to not wear a bra no matter how much you clearly need one!
Theme Song: Be My Heart
BLADE'S FINAL WORD: A lot of characters I had to struggle to get 12 different, interesting shots that looked cool and showed off their expressions, poses, moves, and personality. This... was not a problem with Erel, on account of Erel is totally fricking awesome.
