"iX... I've given you my word that I'll protect Kohaku and the others."
Blade , Luminous Avenger iX


Blade is Sumeragi's highest ranking Falcon and the secondary antagonist of Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX.

Once one of many Minos fleeing persecution from Sumeragi, Blade was captured in a raid and subject to numerous experiments, turning her into a thankless servant to Demerzel, who sought to have her play the role of his "king" in his new world order. She was given the Azure Striker Septima, which allows her to manipulate and control electricity.

DescriptionEdit

An Adept with an electric Septima who is affiliated with Sumeragi. He is a ruthless warrior who exterminates Minos without question, according to Sumeragi’s orders. Blade is under the direct command of Sumeragi’s supervisory AI, putting him above even the most elite Falcons.[2]

Appearance Edit

Blade is a young woman with long blond hair and light blue eyes, with a large scar across her left cheek. Before her capture, she wore a red shirt with a high collar, a white under-layer and trousers, and black thigh-high boots. She also wore a black glove on her left hand and a black band on her right wrist.

After she was captured by Sumeragi, her attire changed completely. Her hairstyle changed tied into a ponytail and a pair of pigtails, and she now has a white helmet with two horns and a blue diamond-shaped crystal in between, as well as a visor with two glowing blue eyes covering her real ones. She wears a black and blue cloak with blue-highlighted shoulder pads and a large armoured collar. Underneath she wears a black bodysuit and a pair of white armoured boots, each with a spike on the foot and two near the kneecap. She wears blue, metal gloves with sharp fingertips. Blade also carries six scabbards and a segregated sword that can separate into a whip.

Personality Edit

While Blade's personality is never truly explored, it is implied that she had a strong sense of responsibility, given her sacrifice so that Kohaku and the other Minos children could escape a Sumeragi raid.

While under Demerzel's control, Blade is taciturn, only concerned with her primary mission of eliminating Copen as the last real resistance of the Minos. Activating Berserk Trigger empowers her Septima to complete her mission, but also causes her to go insane, unable to do anything but howl, scream, and occasionally shout about her mission to "kill iX", though it seems Kohaku's name triggers her to fight the mental reprogramming, if only a little.

Upon being released from the Butterfly Effect, Blade is initially confused at what happened, until she remembers her capture and experimentation by Sumeragi, before being horrified at how she turned on her comrades.

SkillsEdit

Skill Description
Inductor Rush

Inductor Rush

Blade rushes forward and slashes at the player with her sword.

With Berserk Trigger activated, this skill becomes electrified, piercing Prevasion. It also leaves a trail of electricity as it goes, meaning jumping behind Blade is unwise

Bendix Coil

Bendix Coil

Blade leaps into the air towards Copen, spinning as she does so. Can cancel into Conductive Interregnum.

With Berserk Trigger activated, this skill becomes electrified, piercing Prevasion.

Conductive Interregnum

Conductive Interregnum

Blade jumps and thrusts her sword downwards, jamming it into the ground and sending electric volts in both directions either side to her. Afterwards, she will remove the sword from the ground, leaving behind a piece, and continue her attack pattern. After a period of time, the piece will explode, also sending out volts. It can be destroyed by attacks from both Copen and Blade.

Berserk Trigger causes this attack to electrify the entire ground on impact

Soveregin Crashbolt

Soveregin Crashbolt

Blade begins using this attack from phase 2 onward. She summons a bolt of lightning that envelops her completely, cancelling any Tags. This bolt will also strike any blade segments she's embedded in the ground. She then sends a wave of electricity towards Copen.

Berserk Trigger increases the size of the bolt and the number of waves launched

Current Governor

Current Governor

Blade begins using this attack from phase 2 onward. She extends her sword and whips it towards Copen before turning it rigid again, making it a platform he can stand on. She then sends an electrical current through the sword.

Berserk Trigger allows this attack to launch spheres of electricity upwards and downwards from the sword as it jolts and shatters

Berserk Trigger Active

ベルセルクトリガー

"01011 01001 01100 01100 / 01011 01001 01100 01100 / 01011 01001 01100 01100. Berserk Trigger!"

Blade's Special Skill, in which her Septima is hijacked and controlled by Demerzel using the Butterfly Effect, boosting her attacks considerably at the cost of turning her completely rabid.

Berserk Trigger is activated by default in Blade's final battle, so her Special Skill is replaced by Thunderandal.

Thunderandal
Collider Durandal

"Wicked blade agleam / Barbarous and bathed in darkness / Cleaving all in its path! Thunderandal!"

Blade's Special Skill in her final battle. She teleports with a Crashbolt, extending and retracting her sword in a series of electrifying slashes

  1. Teleports to one end of the screen in a Crashbolt
  2. Marks 5 segments of the ground before slashing whip-sword-fragments into the ground, sending Crashbolts bursting from the marked areas and directly above her
  3. Slashes low to the ground, sending the fragments flying forwards
  4. Reconnects the fragments and unleashes a gigantic diagonal upwards slash.
  5. Crashbolts back to the center of the field, resumes normal attack pattern.

Trivia Edit

  • Blade's mask is inspired by a type of Japanese spirit known as an "Oni".[1]
  • Blade's incantation for Berserk Trigger is written in binary code split into four parts. When "011" or "010", the designations for lowercase and uppercase letters respectively, is placed before each, it translates to "kill" or "KILL".
    • Translating the line as it is results in "ZX", an incidental reference to the Mega Man ZX series, also developed by Inti Creates.
  • Blade has the most screen time out of all the Falcons, appearing in three different stages, as well as cutscenes.
  • Blade will not attack you at the start of combat unless you take some sort of action first.
  • "Thunderandal" is a combination of "thunder" and "Durandal", an indestructible sword wielded by the paladin Roland.
