History[edit | edit source]
Roughly 4 to 5 months before the start of the main story, Reinhard van Astrea, Julius Juukulius and Ferris escorted two members of the Sage Council on a diplomatic mission to the Empire in order to sign a non-aggression pact between the Kingdom and the Empire. After an unfortunate turn of events, Reinhard found himself standing in front of Balleroy's corpse and was subsequently labeled as guilty, leaving him no other choice but to escape, taking the Emperor as "hostage". After battling with numerous Vollachian figures, Vincent, Julius, Ferris and Reinhard came to a conclusion that Balleroy was not actually dead but rather faked his own death in order to divert the attention to the three Royal Guards and seize the situation to get himself on the throne, alongside his co-conspirator Gramdart Holstoy. Before long, Julius and Balleroy entered a deadly duel which concluded with Balleroy's death.
