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 Trails games. Turn back now if you don't want to get lasered! Okay, byee!

Valimar, the Ashen Knight (《(はい)騎神(きしん)》 ヴァリマール) is one of the seven Divine Knights of Erebonia.


Valimar is the Divine Knight piloted by Dreichels Reise Arnor during the War of the Lions. Dreichels sealed the machine in the basement of what is now known as the Old Schoolhouse behind Thors Military Academy after the war and it entered a deep slumber until Rean Schwarzer's arrival. Rean overcomes the trial and Valimar acknowledges him as its Awakener. Valimar possesses the ability to increase its power by linking with secondary contractors associated with its chosen Awakener. Together they fight to the bitter end during the Erebonian Civil War and Rivalries of the Seven.

After reawakening, Valimar discovered he lost his memories and ability to speak correctly. Alongside Rean's growth as an Awakener, Valimar slowly regained his memories and speaking abilities.

Trails of Cold Steel

Valimar appears before Rean and his friends after they overcome the final trial in the Old Schoolhouse.

Several days later, Chancellor Giliath Osborne is shot and the Noble Alliance starts its uprising. When the Panzer Soldats of the Noble Alliance march on Trista. Although Class VII fights back, the Kestrel piloted by Scarlet is too much for them. At that moment, Valimar calls out to Rean, asking "Dost thou desire the power?" Rean responds with "Heed my call, Valimar The Ashen Knight!" In response to his voice, Valimar is activated. Rean boards Valimar and defeats Scarlet in battle.

Ordine, piloted by Crow Armbrust, proves to be an opponent too tall for Rean and Valimar. Rean is forced to leave the battlefield, leaving behind his friends of Class VII.

Trails of Cold Steel II

With its core wounded from the battle against Crow and Ordine in Trista, Valimar depleted its mana to restore Rean's health, making it unable the move at the start of the game. Until Intermission: "Aboard the Pantagruel", Valimar uses mana to open Spirit Paths to transport Rean and his friends to various locations in Erebonia.

As the third faction in the civil war starts moving, Valimar is frequently summoned to participate in battle. During the climax in the Infernal Castle in Heimdallr, Valimar has its rematch against Ordine.

Trails of Cold Steel III

Similar to Rean's growth, Valimar has regained its ability to speak correctly and started to express human emotions, noticeable in his concern for Rean. Valimar is capable of linking with Rean's secondary contractors as they pilot Panzer Soldats themselves and taking these machines with him as he travels through Spirit Paths.

However, Millium Orion's death in the Gral of Erebos causes Rean to lose his self-control. Valimar evolves in its second form and, as feedback from its Awakener, assumes an evil form.

Trails of Cold Steel IV

Due to Rean's loss of self-control, Valimar is initially unable to speak at all. Valimar manages to return to his original state thanks to Arianrhod's power. Rean and Valimar win through the Rivalries and head to the final battle in Valimar's true form.


Throughout the series, Valimar assumes different forms:[2]
