Celestin is a man in 30s, who has short, combed light-blue hair, violet color eyes with finely gentlemen style glasses. He’s seen wearing a butler’s uniform that’s light and dark silver in color, a dark/grey-purple vest, a white collar shirt tucked underneath the vest with a black tie tied around the neck collar, black laced shoes, and white gloves.
Celestin is incredibly loyal and extremely competent. He is exceptionally talented at any duties asked of him, including those normally expected of a butler, but also though of administration or combat. He takes excellence seriously, working those under his charge to the bone to ensure they achieve satisfactory standards.
He is highly thought of by not only the Hyarms family, but all those who come to know him. Celestin is never afraid to offer criticism and guidance to his master, but at the same time he is very caring, supportive and protective of Patrick.
Celestin spent most of his time in Trista when the youngest son of Marquis Hyarms, Patrick, enrolled at Thors Military Academy. Proud with the growth of Patrick after his first year, he returned to the Hyarms manor in Saint-Arkh.
Celestin tells Rean that he first began serving the Hyarms family when Patrick was at most one year old. He expresses that he and Patrick have a relationship much deeper than that of master and servant as Patrick was the first person to treat him as an equal and give him a place to belong.
The gentlemanly butler is actually very skilled in martial arts which he learned in order to protect Patrick. During the October War, Celestin remained at the Academy where he attended on Patrick. He was a member of the Order of The Lion that formed to defend the Academy when Class VII and the other students arrived to liberate it from the Noble Alliance.
It is revealed that Celestin abilities are highly valued by even Marquis Hyarms himself who wishes for Celestin to return to the main house in order to carry out more important duties. However, Celestin refuses to uptake such an offer as he wishes to remain by Patrick's side. Instead, he secretly does extra work behind Patrick’s back because he does not want Patrick thinking that he is holding him back.
In April S.1206, Celestin took up a temporary role of janitor at Thors Branch Campus, where he continues to complete all tasks assigned to him perfectly, including technical duties such as optimizing orbal terminals at the campus. When the Mayor of Leeves' son, Franky seeks employment as a bracer, it is Celestin who offers him training and employment under him at the branch campus and trains him up to competency.
No matter where he goes, however, he always watches over Patrick. At the summer festival in Heimdallr, Celestin accompanies the school and goes to the party at City Hall. He helps defend the St. Astraia Girls' School when Cryptids and Magic Knights manifest.
After having seemingly vanished after the Great Twilight began, Clestin suddenly contacts Rean and Class VII to meet him in Raquel. He requests assistance in tracking down a missing airliner bound for Ordis which had Marquis Hyarms and Theodore Egret onboard. After they are rescued, Celestin is down due to his personal opinion that he failed to protect the Marquis, for which he is consoled and told not to trouble himself over.
In the Overture at Mishelam, Celestin speaks with Patrick about how much he has grown. He is also part of the planning process for Operation: Shimmering wings.
Celestin has the chance to reunite with Franky, praising him for how far he has come as a janitor and stating that Celestin will offer additional advice and support when the time comes for Franky to apply for the Bracer Guild.
Celestin is part of Patrick's team in the Erebonian Martial Arts Tournament; however they are defeated in the first round.
|A talented butler working for House Hyarms. Patrick considers him family, and he and Rean get along well.|
Under Marquis Hyarms' direction, he was appointed to assist the branch campus in whatever capacity he is needed.
Is elated to finally see Patrick again after so long. He stays out of the picture, but continues watching his young master grow.
“On a related note, might I ask if you've made any friends yet? And remember, lapdogs don't count.”
