Van Arkride (ヴァン・アークライド) is a Spriggan at Arkride Solutions Office in Edith, Calvard, and the protagonist of Kuro no Kiseki. Before becoming a Spriggan, he was taught "proper" martial arts by Bergard Zeman.
Van is a young man blue eyes and dark bluish-black hair styled into a spiky, swept-back style with a long fringe. He wears a long cobalt jacket with a fleece lined collar and leather patches on the shoulder. The sleeves are partly rolled up, revealing a single red band worn on the right wrist. Van also wears a red shirt, grey jacket with a zipper, black trousers and blue and grey loafers. Around his neck, Van wears a dog tag along a cord and leather strap.
Van is armed with a Stun-Calibur[JP 1] a long-blunt weapon resembling a sword but with no sharp edges. The blade portion of the sword is partitioned into segments and there is a blue gem installed into its pommel.
While Van comes off as dry and pragmatic, he tries not to be insincere and is not bad at looking out for others. He has contact with people in various industries due to his work, and seems to have a wide range of personal connections, but also has a side that does not allow people to get too personal with him.
Although he began working as a Spriggan almost by sheer coincidence, he seems comfortable with its way of life, and even though he complains when he has to deal with bad jobs, he still makes sure to handle it.
- Similar to Estelle Bright and Lloyd Bannings, Van Arkride uses a non-sharp weapon (Sword Breaker Combat Orbment) Stun-Calibur[JP 1] as his main weapon. This weapon is based on the Jian, a club used in China to break swords.
