“We stand before a great darkness, but remember, darkness can't exist where light is. Let's be that light!”
— Rean Schwarzer, to his classmates, Trails of Cold Steel

Rean Schwarzer (リィン・シュバルツァー) is the main protagonist of Trails of Cold Steel I, II, III, and IV as a member, and later instructor, of Thors Military Academy's Class VII. He is also one of the three main protagonists of Trails into Reverie.

Profile[]

Rean was raised as the adopted son of Teo and Lucia Schwarzer in the northern region of Ymir in Erebonia. He enrolls at Thors Military Academy at the age of 17, where he deepens his bonds with his friends as the centre of Class VII. He is then selected as the Awakener for Valimar, the Ashen Knight, and becomes known as the Ashen Chevalier from his actions in the Erebonian Civil War.

After graduating from Thors, he assumes the role of instructor for Class VII: Special Operations at the Thors Branch Campus. While leading his students, Rean teams up with his old friends to deal with disaster that strikes the entire empire and surrounding nations alike. As the saga unfolds, he learns the details surrounding his birth, how he ended up as the baron's adopted son and about the unknown power that dwells inside him, which, at the mercy of fate, contribute to his growth as a person.

Appearance[]

Rean is a young man with unkempt dark hair, usually with a blue tint, and fuchsia eyes. During his time at Thors, Rean wears the red Class VII uniform, using black trousers and a lavender tie. Rean's traveling clothes consist of a black shirt over a white vest, a large red jacket with a fleece lined collar, blue trousers with a stripe pattern across one leg and leather laced-up boots.

An older Rean wears a long white overcoat with belt-like attachments on the shoulders, a flared collar and a loosely worn purple belt. He also wears a black zipped shirt over a white buttoned shirt, black trousers and a red suspender belt for carrying his tachi.

Rean can enter an enhanced state which alters his appearance due to the influence of his position as the ultimate Sacrifice of the Erebonian Curse. In this form, his eyes glow red and his hair becomes a stark shade of white. After the Great Twilight, Rean is permanently in this state. He then wears a special mana regulating outfit crafted by the Hexen Clan which is comprised of an all black top and trousers with several zippers incorporated into its design. This in turn made Rean resemble Loewe who also has a similar appearance as noted by Renne.

There we go, the end of spoilers. Thank you for your time!

Rean uses a tachi in battle. It is kept in a sheath which transitions from purple at one end to dark blue and a metal clasp at the other. The blade itself is single edged, with a decorated purple and gold woven handle and two tassels hanging from the end. There is a ring-like attachment on the side of the guard.

Personality[]

Kind, sociable, easygoing and modest to a fault, Rean is about as upright as they come. He is incredibly supportive, often helping people (friends or otherwise) with their various problems, sometimes going through extreme lengths to fulfill requests. He is a natural-born leader, often taking the initiative when the group faces a problem, relying on his good instincts and deductive reasoning skills to get through them.

However, despite putting on a confident front, Rean has a shockingly low amount of self-worth, often being harsh to himself and trying to spread credit to others mainly due to the fact he was adoptive and how other noble mistreat his adoptive father over it and how he end up lost control of himself due to his unknown power when he and Elise were younger. He is also unable to reconcile the love that his family has for him, often considering himself to be a burden, striving to one day "pay back his parents" for caring for them, unable to realize that his parents unconditionally love him.

He also has a tendency to put others over himself, often to his detriment. Jusis points out that his tendency to do this comes across as more abnormal than virtuous. He holds himself back when fighting due to the fear of losing control and accidentally hurting someone with his power. He is able to slowly reconcile his shortcomings over the course of Cold Steel I & II, eventually learning to accept the love that people have for him and accept his unknown power as an extension of himself. He is quite overprotective of Elise, stating that he won't just let any man be with her and easily snaps to even the slightest of infractions (such as a simple stroke) against her.

Rean matures a great deal after the events of the first two Cold Steel games. Although his base personality is more or less the same, it's greatly tempered by his experiences in the military. He gains a greater understanding of the people and world around him, and makes a point to look at things "beneath the surface." He is more forthright than he used to be, and he tends to vocalize uncomfortable truths rather than coddle them (such as when he tells Kurt his sword skills and lack of resolve aren't enough to help him on his mission).

As a teacher, his kindness and easygoing nature are complemented by high expectations and a desire to maximize each of his student's potential. He is also fiercely protective of them, and while it often manifests in a desire to help them overcome whatever obstacle that might be in their way, his overprotectiveness of them can lead him to make questionable decisions in order to secure their safety. Over the course of Cold Steel III, he learns to set aside his overprotectiveness towards them and genuinely trust his students as comrades. He shows a great deal of concern for students outside of his class as well and is always willing to lend an ear to any student in need.

Rean is surprisingly competitive, often putting his all into winning competitions. He admonishes Group B for their abysmal grade in their previous field study and spurs them into cooperating by appealing to their sense of pride. He will express dismay when losing to his opponent during minigames. He also strongly believes in diligence, and while he's always willing to help his students in need, he also expects his students to work hard in order to achieve their goals.

Rean has a fondness for fishing and enjoys snowboarding; he even helped construct Ymir's snowboarding course as a child. The Unspeakable R costume sets in Cold Steel II & III make it clear that Rean was quite imaginative as a child.

Osborne Family - Visual (Sen III)

During his early childhood, Rean was raised in Heimdallr, where he lived peacefully with his parents. Their peaceful life came to an abrupt end when General Rudolf Arundel and his faction of nobles within the imperial army aggressively assumed a pro-war stance to make a name for themselves.[1] Osborne caught wind of their schemes, but could do little more than warn his fellow officers.[1]

Arundel's faction responded by having what resembled a jaeger corps attack their home on the outskirts of Heimdallr.[1] Late at night, they had lit his house on fire.[1] Osborne sped home, and found Rean mortally wounded, penetrated by debris near his heart.[1] Rean's mother, with her dying breath, begged him to make sure at least their son would survive the attack.[1]

Osborne and Ishmelga - Flashback (Sen IV)

Osborne begged to goddess and fiend alike to save his son.[2] Ishmelga responded, stating it had been waiting for those words for two centuries.[2] Osborne sacrificed mind and body to serve as the Awakener of the Ebon Knight. In return, Ishmelga ensured Rean's survival by transplanting Osborne's heart into Rean's body, a possibility enabled by their pact.[1][2]

Fleeing from the scene of the crime, Osborne called his childhood friend Teo Schwarzer; it was the first time they spoke to each other in three years:[3]

I want you to take in a child. You must cut all ties with me and never speak a word of this to that child. I'm sorry, Teo. You're the only one I can turn to.

He informed Teo about the location where he had abandoned Rean.[3] Teo dashed toward the location, realizing how heartbroken Osborne was as a single father.[3] To Rean, he muttered:

Rean... I pray you grow up strong and healthy. ...Oh, Aidios... If you're listening, hear me now. Please, allow this child... [Note 1]

There we go, the end of spoilers. Thank you for your time!

Baron Schwarzer took Rean into his household and raised the boy with his wife Lucia and their three-year-old daughter, Elise. Since Rean had no memory prior to his abandonment, he had no idea whether he was born a noble, commoner, or even an Erebonian to begin with. This sparked some controversy among the baron's fellow nobles and many rumors spread about Rean being his bastard son. Nevertheless, the Schwarzers remained a kind and supportive family throughout Rean's upbringing.

In S.1196, at the age of 9, Rean experienced a traumatic incident.[Supplementary 3][Note 2] As a monster approached his adoptive sister, he was overcome by an overwhelming anger. Some sort of power, referred to as his ogre power,[JP 3] overtook his consciousness and viciously murdered the beast. Rean began to fear himself. Though he was raised in a loving environment, he felt an immense amount of guilt towards his foster family for being a burden.

The following year, in S.1197, Yun Ka-fai takes Rean in as a pupil.[4][5][6][Supplementary 3] Yun Ka-fai taught him the Eight Leaves One Blade school of swordsmanship in the hopes that Rean could eventually overcome his fear and master his power. Unfortunately, Rean was unable to do so and Yun Ka-Fai had to cut his training short, although he granted Rean the title of Beginner.

Trails of Cold Steel[]

After struggling to find a path to follow in life, Rean decides to enroll at Thors Military Academy in S.1204 in an attempt to distance himself from his foster family and ultimately join the army. He is placed in Class VII and is sent to various locations as a part of his field studies. Rean is the only member of the class who does not join a extracurricular club. Instead, he spends most of his time helping out the academy's Student Council with requests from both the academy and nearby Trista.

Despite some initial frictions with some of his classmates, Rean ultimately gets along with all of them. He also gets along well with the prototype Class VII members.

During Class VII's visit to Ymir for a brief respite,[7][8][9][10][Supplementary 3][Note 3] Rean receives an intermediate level scroll through Teo Schwarzer from Yun Ka-fai.[9][Supplementary 3]

On the night of the 127th Thors Military Academy festival, one week before the start of the Erebonian Civil War, Rean and his classmates complete the trial against Loa Erebonius and discover Valimar, the Ashen Knight, in the depths of the Old Schoolhouse.[11][Note 4]

Rean's peaceful life at the academy falls apart on 30 October, S.1204. Class VII is listening to a radio broadcast of Chancellor Osborne's national address geared toward Crossbell's illegitimate declaration of independence and subsequent annihilation of the Garrelia Fortress when the chancellor is sniped by the Imperial Liberation Front's leader C, who had been Rean's senior and classmate Crow Armbrust all along. Shocked over the turn of these events, Class VII witnesses how the Noble Alliance assumes control of Heimdallr through a coup and march on to invade Trista.[12]

Outside the walls of Trista, Class VII fights off the invading Panzer Soldats. They are driven into a corner by Scarlet's Spiegel, and when Rean is about to draw out his ogre power, he hears a disembodied voice asking him "dost thou desire power?". His surroundings fade and he finds himself in a dark room with only the voice, asking him to establish a covenant. From the darkness emerges Celine, who in a human voice explains to Rean that he needs to call out the name he learnt during the trial against Loa Erebonius: Valimar.[12] The power of the Divine Knight is evident when Rean takes control of Valimar and easily overpowers Scarlet.

His victory is short-lived, however, as Crow Armbrust makes his appearance on the battlefield. Crow reveals himself to be the Awakener of Ordine, the Azure Knight. With three years of experience under his belt, Crow pushes Ordine into its second form and effortlessly beat his former classmate. Valimar advises immediate tactical retreat and Celine, Rean's co-pilot, instructs the Divine Knight to move away from the battlefield as far as possible. After the parting words from the person with whom Rean spent his time at the festival's bonfire, Valimar sets course for the Eisengard Range, marking the end of Trails of Cold Steel.

Trails of Cold Steel II[]

Rean's awakening, almost an entire month later, marks the start of Trails of Cold Steel II.[6] Upset and agitated, he ignores Celine's remarks and marches his way down the Eisengard mountain range. He is stopped in his tracks by a Magic Knight and, with Valimar having depleted all of his mana, is forced to battle the golem on his own. Before things go awry he is saved by Toval Randonneur, who is joined by Elise and Princess Alfin Reise Arnor.

They escort him back to Ymir, where he reunites with his parents. They inform him about the civil war that has been raging on for a month and Rean is worried about his friends in Class VII. The following day Northern Jaegers, hired by the Kreuzen Province, attack Ymir and gravely wound Teo. Rean, returning from the canyon, reacts to the situation by unleashing his ogre power until he is stopped by Elise. Altina Orion, an agent of the Noble Alliance, successfully kidnaps Rean's sister and the princess. The next day, Rean and Toval set out to find Rean's friends.

With Valimar's access to the Spirit Paths and assistance of Toval, Claire Rieveldt, and Sharon Kreuger, it takes Rean ten days to locate and assemble the entirety of Class VII (minus Crow). Shortly after their reunion the Noble Alliance invades Ymir and invites Rean onboard their flagship, Pantagruel. Their goal to persuade Rean to join their cause backfires when Rean decides to break into the room Alfin was kept in and attempts to escape with her from the Pantagruel. With his ogre power waning, he is stopped on the ship's deck by the Alliance's strongest members. Their checkmate is turned into a stalemate when Prince Olivert Reise Arnor aboard the Courageous flies by. Vita Clotilde decides it's best for both sides to each to their way.[13]

The next day, Prince Olivert entrusts the Courageous to Class VII and the duty of captain is transferred from Victor S. Arseid to Towa Herschel.[14] The original crew, plus Toval, Claire, and Sharon, decides that the Thors students would take care of east Erebonia as they themselves head west. With Rean serving as their leader, the Courageous picks up requests from places throughout east Erebonia and even visit Alster in western Erebonia.[15][16][Supplementary 4][Note 5]

On 30 December S.1204, two months into the civil war, Class VII returns to Trista and liberate it from the nobles' influence. The academy itself is kept by the Order of the Lion, students of noble origin under leadership of Patrick T. Hyarms.[20]

The following morning, all students of Thors prepare themselves for the invasion of Karel Imperial Villa, where Emperor Eugent Reise Arnor III, Empress Priscilla, Heimdallr Governor Carl Regnitz, and Elise are being held. The moment they manage to liberate the imperial family, the Infernal Castle appears where the Valflame Palace was originally situated.[21]

The missing member of the imperial family, Crown Prince Cedric Reise Arnor, is kept on the throne room of the castle. After emerging victorious against Vita Clotilde and Crow Armbrust, Rean summons Valimar for his final duel against the Crow-piloted Ordine. Rean wins the duel and both Crow and Vita prepare to withdraw when Duke Croire de Cayenne, insists to continue their operation and forces Cedric into Testa-Rossa, the Vermillion Knight. Its contact with the imperial family's blood triggers its curse and it transforms into the catastrophic Vermillion Apocalypse. Joining forces, Rean and Crow manages to defeat the calamity, but at a high cost. With its final attack, the Vermillion Apocalypse pierces Crow's chest, fatally wounding him.[21]

In a dazzling turn of events, Noble Alliance chief of staff Rufus Albarea reveals himself to be the primary member of the Ironbloods, after which Osborne reveals himself to be alive. He instructs Rufus to invade Crossbell and takes over Ouroboros's Phantasmal Blaze Plan. Rean rushes toward the chancellor, grabbing his collar and asking why he is still alive.[21]

Rufus places his hand on Rean's shoulder, reminding him that he played an important factor in the decisions he made. Rean had remembered that before being adopted by the Schwarzers, he was dropped off in the snow by a man whose face he could no longer recognize. It was at this moment that it dawned upon him that the father who abandoned him twelve years prior was Giliath Osborne, who confirmed his parentage.[21]

Osborne soon proclaims Rean to be the hero who ended the civil war, and grants him the title of Ashen Chevalier. Rean initially falls into a depressive state due to not being able to uphold his promise to Towa, but is lifted out of it with support from his friends. Ultimately, Rean chooses to serve in the army as an officer despite his initial reservations, but does so since he knows that it will at least allow him to save some lives. He partakes in annexing Crossbell, simply doing his duties as asked.

During his time in Crossbell as a military officer, he ends up working with Altina, and saved Juna Crawford and her siblings from a Republican gunship. He also crosses paths with Lloyd Bannings in the Geofront.

Trails of Cold Steel III[]

While all of the members of the rest of Class VII go their own ways, Rean decides to complete his second year and graduate from the academy. During his second year, he develops a close bond with Patrick, who graduates with him. After graduating and during his second year, despite rejecting offers to join the Imperial Army of Erebonia, he still accepts orders from the Imperial government due to his altruistic nature, often working alongside Altina.

During these orders, Rean notices that his ogre power becomes gradually stronger. He participated in the Northern War; when Ouroboros unleashed a swarm of archaisms, Rean lost control of his power when he unleashed it in a desperate (yet successful) effort to keep the archaisms from harming any civilians. After this incident, Rean decided no longer to rely on the power. (Later in S.1206, he slowly regained control of it thanks to he help of a pendant he received from Emma Millstein, and special training from her familiar, Celine.)

Shortly after graduating, in the spirit of his endeavors with Class VII, Rean decides to become an instructor at the newly-established Thors Branch Campus. His coworkers include Towa, his old upperclassman; Randy Orlando, who despite being an SSS member and Lloyd's partner quickly befriends Rean; Michael Irving, the stern captain of the RMP; and Aurelia Le Guin, the famed general of the former Noble Alliance.

Rean becomes the homeroom teacher of New Class VII, specializing in Special Operations. It initially consists of three students; Juna, whom he had unknowingly saved before, Kurt Vander, who joined the branch campus per his brother's request, and Altina, his former associate who chose to follow Rean to protect him from his ogre power. Rean's excellent grades as a student in the main academy allows him to convey the particulars of his subject, imperial history, with ease, and he does his best to look after his students.

The school must go through periodic field exercises, all of which (just like Rean's field studies during his time as a student) end up involving some degree of danger, specifically at the hands of Ouroboros agents. During Rean's field studies, he reunites with his former friends from the original Class VII to see what they've been up to, and also meets a number of new allies outside of Class VII, old and new. During the field studies, Rean is constantly perplexed by the identity of an enigmatic man known as Azure Siegfried, who looks and sounds almost exactly like the supposedly-deceased Crow. In-between the second and third field studies, two more students are transferred to Rean's class: Musse Egret, a well-informed noble girl with a large crush on Rean, and Ash Carbide, a wise but arrogant young man with an agenda.

In the final field study at Heimdallr, Emperor Eugent Reise Arnor III informs Rean of the truth about the Erebonian Curse, a malicious presence in the country responsible for much of its militaristic history. Soon afterwards, Ash, controlled by this same curse, shoots and nearly kills the Emperor. This leads to the appearance of the Gral of Erebos, and the shooting is framed by Osborne and his Ironbloods as an attack by a Calvardian spy that is used to gather support for the war. With the help of both Old and New Class VII - minus the arrested Ash, the kidnapped Altina, and Millium who stands with her fellow Ironbloods - Rean leads a charge into the Gral. On the way, they make it past Ouroboros agents, jaegers, Siegfried, and the Ironbloods. By the time they reach the bottom of the Gral, only he, Juna, Kurt and Musse remain.

Here, they confront Osborne and Black Alberich, the chief of the Gnomes, as well as Cedric who holds the kidnapped Altina captive. After battling the Nameless One, the purpose behind Altina's capture is made clear; she, along with Millium, is one of two beings created by the Black Workshop who is suitable for being destroyed to unleash the curse. To prevent Altina from having to be sacrificed, Millium steps in and allows herself to be murdered by the beast - this creates the Sword of the End. Seeing Millium die in front of him sends Rean into an berserk state; he (with Valimar) takes the sword, and his power now out of control, he slaughters the beast. The death of the beast causes the Great Twilight, an event that was instrumental in gathering public support for the Great War and amplified the curse's power.

Afterwards, an enraged Rean motions to attack Osborne and Alberich, but he is restrained by Crow (who has now regained his memories), Rutger, and Arianrhod, all of whom call their Divine Knights. Cedric and Osborne now summon their own Divine Knights, making six present. For a moment, Rean's senses return and he wonders what he has just done. The game ends with Osborne holding Rean in his grasp, declaring that he will now "write the end to this wretched fairy tale".

Following his capture by Osborne, Rean is imprisoned in the Black Workshop in preparation as the Sacrifice, becoming increasingly deranged in the process. After tracking down the whereabouts of the workshop, Original and New Class VII invade the workshop using Spirit Paths from Eryn. Their presence manages to trigger something within Rean to break free from his shackles as Celine accompanies him out of concern, upon which they bump into Crow and Duvalie, who have decided to defect. Rean heads for Valimar, where he runs into his students, but ignores their presence until he realizes they intend to get in his way. After being weakened, Rean hears the thoughts of his students and friends, realizing that they care about him as he returns to normal, although his hair and eyes remain white and red respectively.

Following their escape from the workshop, Rean asks Crow and Duvalie to join, but they both refuse, with Crow stating that their Rivalry will begin soon. The witches of Eryn also give him a new uniform to help suppress his ogre power, seeing that his previous one is damaged beyond repair. Confronting Crow and Duvalie at Bryonia Island, Rean attempts to convince Crow once more, but he refuses. He and Valimar emerge victorious from the Rivalry, but refuses to absorb Ordine, as it would kill Crow. This prompts Crow to join him, along with a reluctant Duvalie.

Together with his classmates, friends and students, Rean accepts Musse's invitation to join a secret meeting on the Pantagruel. There he meets Estelle Bright and reconciles with Lloyd Bannings. He also meets with Cassius, who informs him of an upcoming trial given to him by the master which he will address when the time was right. Afterward, Rean decides to join Prince Olivert Reise Arnor's Radiant Wings movement. He helps in repelling the joint Ouroboros and Red Constellation attack, later scolding Musse for attempting a reckless solution to resolve the situation.

Before the Great War began, Rean went with his friends and allies to Mishelam Wonderland, spending what he initially believed to be his final day without any regrets. Cassius, seeing that Rean was ready, began the trial that Yun Ka-fai had prepared. Rean successfully completed his trial and is granted the title of Divine Blade, but is unable to decide on a suffix to go alongside it.

During this time, Rean prevails against the other Awakeners. However, by winning his final battle against Ishmelga he takes over not only its power, but also the curse. There are two outcomes:

In the Normal Ending, Rean, Crow and Millium sacrifice themselves by taking the curse into outer space and return to earth as nothing but feathers. Meeting certain requirements[Note 6] enables the True Ending.

In the True Ending, Rean uses the Earthen Prison[JP 4] he received from Argres to separate himself from the curse, prompting Ishmelga to manifest as an incomplete Great One. Together with Original and New Class VII, the members of the Liberlian Bracer Guild, and the Special Support Section, he defeats Ishmelga-Loge, who attempts to flee as a thought-form; Rean pursues and destroys it. Osborne then appears one last time to have a brief but heartfelt talk with his son. Before they exchange their farewells, Osborne reminds Rean of the letter he received from Yun Ka-Fai a couple of months prior:[22]

In this time of turbulence, become that flashing blade which illuminates the darkness, even if for the briefest moment. I believe you and those comrades whose souls are intertwined with yours are capable of this.[3]

Having defeated the curse and with it, the origin of his ogre power, his hair color and eyes returns to normal. He resumes his duties at Thors Branch Campus and attends the wedding of Olivert Reise Arnor and Scherazard Harvey.

During the aftermath of the normal ending, Rean and Ishmelga fought over control of their shared body, and soon became an unique existence.

Rean resumed his duties as Class VII's instructor following the end of the Great War. As Valimar disappeared with the other Divine Knights, Rean was provided with an experimental Tyrfing S unit, developed by Makarov, his former instructor at the main academy.

In part due to Elysium, Rean somehow regained traits similar to those when he was the Sacrifice, mostly some of his hair being white and his left eye turning yellow. While investigating the Supreme Leader, Rean also came upon a simulacrum of himself that resembled him if Ishmelga had fully taken over, who operated Zoa Gilstein, the Zeroth Divine Knight. The encounter with his copy allowed him to realize the true essence of the enemy, and he worked with both Lloyd and Rufus' teams to resolve the situation.

Prior to the events of Trails through Daybreak, his tachi is broken in half by his senior Shizuna, who was also an apprentice of Yun Ka-Fai, but remained anonymous to Cassius, Arios, and Rean.

There we go, the end of spoilers. Thank you for your time!

Kai no Kiseki: Farewell, O Zemuria[]

On invitation from Calvard, Rean travels there. At about the same time, he also receives a letter from Yun Ka-Fai, later meeting him in person for the first time in several years.

Notes[]

  1. In the Japanese version, Rean's name is put in quotation marks.
  2. In Trails of Cold Steel II in S.1204, it is said to have happened "8 years ago".[4][Supplementary 3]
  3. In Trails of Cold Steel II, on December 5th, Bleublanc says it has been "2 months" since they last spoke, suggesting the trip to Ymir took place around October 5th.
  4. Technically speaking, Valimar was discovered the following day, on October 24th, since it was past midnight.
  5. Takes place at least 15 days after Class VII resumes their duties.[17] Trails of Cold Steel II does not touch upon the events in Alster, but both Trails of Cold Steel III and Trails of Cold Steel IV do.[16][18][19]
  6. The requirement that must be met is having met with Argres. This encounter can be done either as a hidden quest during Trails of Cold Steel IV, Finale: "Scattered Petals, Dying Flames" or after accessing the portal at the base of the Tuatha de Danann after having reached the Normal Ending.
