Millium Orion - SD Model (Sen III)
Hold on, it looks like Millium wants to tell you something.
Hey-hey! White Rabbit here! Lammy scanned this article and said it contains unmarked spoilers for all Kiseki games. Turn back now if you don't want to get lasered! OK, byee!
Crow Armbrust (クロウ・アームブラスト) is introduced as a student at Thors Military Academy's Class V and a member of the ARCUS test team alongside Towa Herschel, George Nome and Angelica Rogner.

Profile

Despite being a laid-back playboy who frequently missed lessons, Crow was highly dependable and cared greatly for his friends. Towards the end of his second year, circumstances led to him becoming a member of Class VII, wherein he developed a close bond in particular with Rean Schwarzer.

Childhood

Crow was born in Jurai City in S.1184. He lost his parents at a young age and was raised by his grandfather, the mayor of Jurai.

After the merging of Jurai as a Special Economic Zone with Erebonia in S.1196 and the death of his grandfather shortly thereafter, the 13-year-old Crow left Jurai to wander through Erebonia.

Eventually, he met Duke Cayenne, who shared Crow's hatred for Chancellor Giliath Osborne and financially supported him to establish the Imperial Liberation Front. He recruited like-minded members, such as Michael Gideon, Scarlet, and Vulcan.

Crow came into contact with Vita Clotilde through her frequent visits to Duke Cayenne. In S.1201, at the age of sixteen, Crow was guided by Vita to an underground place below Ordis, the provincial capital of the Lamarre Province. There, he overcame trials to find Ordine, the Azure Knight resting at the end. Crow became its Awakener.

Trails of Cold Steel

Crow enrolled at Thors Military Academy. Along with Towa Herschel, George Nome and Angelica Rogner, Crow tested the ARCUS prototypes for Class VII in the following year.

As a renowned slacker, he missed numerous classes and risked suspension. Thanks to Instructor Sara Valestein, he was given a second chance to graduate and transferred to Class VII during the summer of S.1204. During these months, he juggled between his roles as a member of Class VII and Comrade C (シー), the leader of the Imperial Liberation Front. Crow was also the Azure Chevalier (蒼の騎士) as he was the Awakener for Ordine, the Azure Divine Knight.

After faking his own death as Comrade C in Roer during Class VII's field study, he traveled to Heimdallr during Chancellor Osborne's national address on October 30. From an enormous distance, Crow pierced the left side of Chancellor Osborne's chest using a sniper rifle developed by the Reinford Group's 5th Division. With the chaos it spawned, Crow's shot marked the beginning of the Erebonian Civil War.

With his work in Heimdallr completed, Crow traveled to Trista in Ordine to back up the Noble Alliance's Panzer Soldats. There he came to face Rean Schwarzer, Awakener of Valimar, the Ashen Knight. Crow's three years of experience piloting Ordine allowed him to completely overwhelm Rean, who was forced to withdraw.

Trails of Cold Steel II

After the apparent death of Osborne, he chose to let his classmates in Class VII live instead of depriving them of their lives. He anonymously informed Toval about the location of Rean's coma. Later on, Crow and his comrades invaded Ymir, where Class VII secretly stayed. He fought Rean again piloting their respective Deus Excellion and was again victorious. He lastly escorted Rean to Pantagruel under the supreme leader's order.

When Rean was "invited" to the Pantagruel, he responded to Rean's request and talked to him about his past experiences, including the death of his beloved grandfather, the establishment of the Imperial Liberation Front, and his acquirement of the Azure Knight, Ordine. Shortly later, Rean (in his ogre form) and Crow had a one-on-one battle on the deck of the Pantagruel. Crow lost, but Rean immediately lost power and became exhausted due to being inexperienced with his ogre power.

Alongside Vita, Crow faced Class VII at the final stratum of the Infernal Castle. Afterwards, Crow and Rean entered their Divine Knights and had one more battle. This time, due to Rean gathering more experience with his Divine Knights and being able to use the power of his friends, he was able to defeat Crow. After this happened, Cayenne forcibly has Cedric summon Testa-Rossa, the Vermillion Knight. Crow and Ordine helped Rean and Valimar defeat the beast, but this costs Crow his life as he is impaled through the heart in the process. Class VII is tearful at seeing their old friend die.

Shortly after his death, it is revealed that Giliath Osborne had survived Crow's assassination attempt and had been hiding in secret all this time. Rean is furious at this news because it reveals that most of Crow's life and his death were for nothing.

Trails of Cold Steel III

Because he was an Awakener with an intact Divine Knight, Crow had not truly died: thanks to the efforts of Gnome chief Black Alberich (who buried a mock body), Crow was eventually able to come back to life as Azure Siegfried. Siegfried bore Crow's appearance, voice and most of his mannerisms (aside his altruism), but lacked his memories. Siegfried appeared to Class VII a number of times over the course of the game, being very cryptic as to his purpose, and shocking them due to his obvious resemblance to Crow. He commented to Class VII that George Nome - who ironically, was Crow's former friend and also revealed to be a Gnome at this point - had "picked up" his life and that he "may be a cheap knockoff, but [needs] to pay his respects to Alberich either way", showing that he was aware he was a clone and was loyal to Alberich out of gratitude.

After the defeat of the Dark Dragon, Siegfried had a one-on-one battle with Rean Schwarzer in the catacombs of Heimdallr (ironically the same location Crow first battled Rean when he was masked as C). He later fought alongside Rutger Claussell, Shirley Orlando and Sharon Kreuger in the second roadblock at the Gral of Erebos.

After the Great Twilight broke out following Rean and Valimar's destruction of the Nameless One, Crow's memories finally returned and he discarded his mask. When he witnessed the two about to attack Alberich and Osborne, he summoned Ordine and, alongside fellow Awakeners Rutger and Arianrhod, helped restrain a berserk Rean. Osborne then summoned Ishmelga, and together with Cedric Reise Arnor, this made six Awakeners present.

Crow later decided to defect alongside Duvalie, assisting Rean, who had gone berserk from the curse. Following a full escape from the Black Workshop, Rean asked Crow to join his group, but Crow denied, instructing Rean to meet him Bryonia Island. There, they held the first Rivalry, which they were barely able to scrape by on a technicality. Crow lost the Rivalry, and due to his status as an Immortal, began to fade away as Ordine was being absorbed into Valimar.

Seeing this, Rean and Valimar countered the transfer of energy with their own, turning Crow and Ordine into retainers; they were spared, but Crow would die after the Great Twilight concluded. Crow then decided to join Rean's group to stop the Great Twilight, assisting him in the remaining Rivalries.

Following the Rivalry between Rean and Osborne, Rean begins to get corrupted by Ishmelga. In the normal ending of the game, Crow sacrifices himself alongside Rean and Millium to stop Ishmelga for good. In the true ending of the game, Rean remembers the Cage of the Earth provided by Argres, saving Crow from such a fate, and Ishmelga is eventually destroyed. With the conclusion of the Great Twilight, Crow begins to fade away, but Franz Reinford (the true, repressed personality within Black Alberich) uses the Sept-Terrion to revive Crow and Millium.

He later attends the Imperial wedding between Olivert Reise Arnor and Scherazard Harvey alongside George, Angelica and Towa.
