Character Backstory:Being born as the second child and the first female of the Combat House of Equiste, Eclair has been solely trained to become not as a female model of the house but to become the head of the Royal Guard that prioritizes the King’s safety due to Edward, her older brother, having a sickly body. Because of this, her childhood is nothing but full of training and was trapped inside their property up until she reached the age of 15 where she was titled to be the heir of the House and declared as the Royal Guard’s Head in public.
After the outbreak of the demons where the forbidden gate was opened, the King immediately shifted his army into protecting his people and dissolved the Royal Guard but made sure that Eclair remained the head of the combat group. Later, it was named as Altrus Military Force and she was entitled as a General with the accomplishment of defending the remaining property of Altrus and at the same time leading troops to push their enemies back from Triathos Village to where they came from.
As an appointed leader of the Military Force, she was forced to recruit more manpower in order to cover for the loss and at the same time to give Altrus another chance to stand up against their enemy once another breakout happens again and with the hope of no more major casualties, the Training Order was born and she, as the head of a combat house, was the first instructor for the future soldiers.
