The Legend of Heroes: Hajimari no Kiseki (英雄伝説
The game takes place after the Great Twilight and events of Trails of Cold Steel IV. It focuses the intertwining fates of three protagonists operating throughout Zemuria: the hero, Rean Schwarzer; the liberator, Lloyd Bannings; and the Hermit, a masked person named C. The perspective of the game alternates between these three groups through the Cross Story mechanism.
- The Day of Reindependence (ザ デイ オブ リインディペンデンス) highlights the story of Crossbell's liberation from Erebonia's occupation, an event first mentioned in Ao no Kiseki and insufficiently addressed in Trails of Cold Steel IV.
- Lost Symbol (ロスト シンボル) continues the story of Rean Schwarzer and the rest of Class VII from where it was left off in Trails of Cold Steel IV.
- The Miserable Sinners (ザ・ミゼラブル・シナーズ) follows four characters that form the crux of the game's story. Their leader, C, named after the Imperial Liberation Front leader, investigates the Imperial Defense Force.
The following characters have been confirmed to appear as of 29 June 2019:
