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!

Kurt Vander (クルト・ヴァンダール) is an intermediate at the Vander school and a student at the Thors Branch Campus.

Profile

Kurt Vander Childhood - Visual (Sen III)

Young Kurt getting trained by his brother, Mueller. Matteus and Aurier Vander, his parents, watch his progress in the back.

Kurt was born in Erebonia. He is the son of Matteus Vander and his second wife, Aurier. Kurt inherited his grey-blue hair from his mother, so often he is not immediately recognized as a Vander descendant. Until the age of 10, Kurt lived in Parm where his family ran the Vander Training Hall. Then, his father appointed as guardian of Emperor Eugent III at the Valflame Palace, they moved to Heimdallr.

Kurt is specialized in the Vander school twin blade techniques, making use of the agility of his slender body. Making it to the level of intermediate at a young age demonstrates his natural talent for swordmanship. However, it initially burdens him that he had to settle for the branch of twin blades since the Vander school is primarily known for their specialization in large swords. Receiving praise for his looks also depresses him, as he considers his physical appearance superior to the average Vander, which are considered robust men.

Lost of Pride and Duty

Kurt was raised with a strong sense of duty to become the future guardian of the Imperial Family. That prospect vanished when Chancellor Giliath Osborne released the Vander family of their duty, arguing that "the protection of the imperial family should not be monopolized within one family" and subsequently spread the Vanders across the empire.

Growing up alongside his brother Mueller, Kurt assumed it would be his duty to protect Crown Prince Cedric Reise Arnor similar to how his brother has been escorting Prince Olivert. His disappointment had him withdraw from enrolling at Thors Military Academy, but his Mueller encouraged him to sign up for the Thors Branch Campus anyway.

In other words, Kurt struggles with a number of (inferiority) complexes, summed up: his different hair color and physique compared to the rest of the family; having to resort to a branch sword style; missing out on his family's duty for which he was raised; and the sudden changes in Cedric's behavior.
