Stark (スターク) is a student in Class IX of the Thors Branch Campus in Trails of Cold Steel III.

Profile

Appearance

Stark is a young man with thick brown hair and eyes. He wears the standard male uniform for students of the Branch Campus, consisting of a blue blazer, waistcoat, white shirt and black trousers. Stark also wears white shoes and has a small blue cap. He uses an orbal firearm in combat.

Personality

Stark is a calm, friendly and intelligent person, who portrays all the signs of a honors student and has vast knowledge about the Jurai, the Special Economic Zone in northwest Erebonia. He is very responsible, stating he will do his best to mange the difficult job of running the logistics of the field studies' operations. He is very helpful; to his peers, offering them advice and being regarded as smart.

Background

Stark grew up in Jurai with at least a father and had a good friendship with Crow Armbrust, who taught him lots of tricks: coin tricks, card magic, billiards and darts, and gave him a deck of antique cards. Stark loses these cards when his father sells them by accident in a pawn shop and Stark resolved himself to tracking them down to re-obtain them gathering thousands of Mira for the sole purpose of this.

When Crow left, Stark was only 8, and he regrets not saying anything at the time when Crow's grandfather passed away and Crow left the city at 13. Since then, Stark was felt like he is living in Crow's shadow. During the October War, Stark heard of the Azure Knight and came to know it was Crow.

Trails of Cold Steel III

He enrolls at the Thors Branch Campus in S.1206, joining Class IX: Military Finance under instructor Towa Herschel. Stark is a member of the Swimming Club and welcomes Altina Orion, eager to see what she can do. His primary role on the campus is to mange the stocks and logistics, including their transportation.

Stark has been searching all the shops in Erebonia, including the second hand shops in the capital for a rare antique deck of cards. Although very old, and not very expensive, it has, in his words, a 'stupidly' high value to him. Rean stumbles across Stark in the computer lab and offers him assistance after thinking the card case was Jingo was referring to on a visit visit to Nienvalli.

Rean retrieves the case for him, and although Stark doesn't recognise the case, the cards inside are the indeed the deck he lost 10 years ago. It was something he was given by a friend years ago but his father had accidentally sold it to a pawn shop. Rean wonders about the connections between this figure and Crow who seem to share a number of similarities. Stark offers 100,000 Mira in exchange, which Rean can decide to accept or not. Should Rean not accept the Mira, he uses the 50 Mira coin flip trick Crow showed him, which Stark recognises as Crow's. Stark picks the solution: that the coin was dropped by Rean and is in neither hand, but Rean pulled a double buff and reveals which hand it is in. Stark admits he was outplayed and they discuss Crow. Stark and rean discuss Crow and Stark asks to learn more about him.

Stark is amongst the students that Rean teaches the 'Manway' method to in Swimming. The club takes part in a contest against Class VII, and Stark can face Musse, Kurt or Ash. Stark is with the branch campus when they come to assist in the battle of the Gral of Erebos.

Trails of Cold Steel IV

After the Great Twilight, Stark travels to the Crossbell Province with Louise, Freddy and Valerie. Stark in particular is travelling the province and calls Class VII to meet him at the St. Ursula Medical College. After gathering information, he assists new Class VII by procuring an orbal boat for them to use to slip by the Imperial defences and get to Mishelam. He then departs to meet up with Valerie and Louise. He and the other students come to the party's aid again in the wetlands.

Later, Stark is working with Edel and coordinating the efforts to gather supplies between the Main and Branch campuses. Stark is acting in an administrative role, offering backup to the different search parties. He asks Rean's assistance in tracking down two parties: Kairi and Fritz Geithner, and Sidney and Ada Grant. After Rean has found them, they report back to Stark. Stark also has a chance to reunite with the Swimming Club during the overture in Mishelam.

Rean later meets Stark on the Courageous. Stark has now encountered Crow again and he is wondering how to show how he has grown and what he has learned. Rean helps him by presiding over the match. The stakes are the antique deck of cards, which Crow recognises as the set he got from his grandfather against Crow having to listen to whatever Stark has to say. Stark is victorious and requests that Crow treat Rean and himself to lunch in Jurai after the war is ended. Crow doesn't believe this is possible as he has resigned himself to a death following the conclusion of the Rivalries, but Stark convinces him this is not his true character to give up on himself. Crow agrees.
