Vincent Vollachia (ヴィンセント・ヴォラキア), formerly known as Vincent Abellux (ヴィンセント・アベルクス) is the 77th and current Emperor of the Vollachia Empire.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Vincent is a young and very handsome man in his mid-twenties. He has relatively short black hair and almond-shaped brown eyes which emit an aura of high intelligence. With a pale complexion, he gives off a sense of fragility if one was to quickly glance at him but when in his presence, Vincent's charisma emits an overpowering sense of dread and power that makes even the finest of soldiers cower in fear.
As a Vollachian Emperor, Vincent is dressed in a long, primarily red and elegant coat with its collar and the front edges being black. The coat's edges are gold in colour, just like the buttons on the front and on the coat's sleeves. On the coat's left side, there's an insignia which has a defiant wolf impaled by swords, which is also the Empire of Vollachia's coat of arms. Underneath his coat, Vincent can be seen wearing a grey tuxedo and underneath that, a white long-sleeved shirt can clearly be visible. Vincent does not wear any special ornaments or jewelry as he doesn't seem to like being seen as ostentatious. Finally, there's a bunch of black feathers on his left shoulder, similarly to what Stride Vollachia was shown to wear.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Vincent is shown to be extremely prideful and regards himself as the center of the universe, similarly to Stride and Priscilla. He is shown to be cold and has zero compassion and mercy for his people but despite that, one cannot call him a bad leader as he's loved by some and feared by a majority of his people. Even when visibly worn out, wounded and on death's door, his people bowed their heads and kneeled before him and no one dared to look at him with even a hint of pity or any other negative emotion. Perhaps one of his most important virtues is his rationality and his ability to make very quick decisions which almost always turn out in his favor, no matter the odds. He's always multiple steps ahead of his foes and allies; Vincent is the embodiment of the way of life in the Empire of Vollachia. As mentioned above, Vincent is very cold and lacks compassion for his soldiers as in Vollachia, everything and everyone is owned by the Emperor. Despite the overwhelming political power he has, he's very resourceful and does not treat people's lives as possessions. Having said that, he had no problems in ordering one of his guards to slit his throat (despite Balleroy Temeglyph later explaining how the knight would not have left the hall with his life as he showed weakness which strictly goes against the core teachings of Vollachian Empire). He's also shown to be somewhat sadistic at times, though he never lets his sadistic views cloud his mind and prevent him from issuing the correct orders.
He's shown to be extremely smart and capable of making the entire Empire dance in the palm of his hand. He's easily able to manipulate people, even those who are a cut above others in intelligence. At the end of the Imperial Diplomacy of Bloodshed, it's revealed that Vincent stood behind the coup itself, tricking the Viscount, Prime Minister, the Divine Generals, the Lugnican diplomats and the whole Vollachian Army into an elaborate and stretched-out plan all for the sake of signing the non-aggression pact with the Kingdom of Lugnica, as he had no desire to start a war but due to the Empire's age-old teachings, he couldn't allow himself to hastily accept the treaty.
As expected from an Emperor, Vincent knows his way with words, even being capable of outsmarting Miklotov McMahon in a verbal battle and making a fool out of Bordeaux, deceiving him into thinking he's simply belittling him when in fact, he was just citing a passage from The Guillotine of Magrizza. He's easily capable of manipulating people to fall into his traps, using them for his own goals and plans. He's normally calm but does not shy away from showering his subordinates with insults or straight up ordering them to commit suicide or to not speak a word. Vincent was also noted to emit a strong presence, different from anything Julius Juukulius has ever felt; it was neither joy nor terror but something far more sinister.
History[edit | edit source]
Around 25 years ago, Drizen Vollachia had 67 children including Prisca Benedict and Vincent Abellux left all around the country to participate in the new Emperor Selection Ceremony. Vincent won the Emperor Selection Ceremony and rose as the 77th emperor of the Vollachia Empire.
Roughly six months before the beginning of the story, Reinhard van Astrea, Julius Juukulius and Ferris escorted Miklotov McMahon and Bordeaux Zellgef on a diplomatic mission to Rupgana, the capital of the Vollachia Empire. They met His Majesty Vincent Vollachia in the Crystal Palace but after an unfortunate turn of events, the trio of knights and the Emperor had to flee to a nearby forest in order to save their lives. Soon after their battle with the Divine Generals who were trying to retrieve the Emperor, the squad realizes that the perpetrators are after Vincent's life. After successfully defeating the traitors who turned out to be Balleroy Temeglyph and Gramdart Holstoy, the Lugnican diplomats manage to secure a non-aggression treaty. On their way back, they come to the conclusion that Vincent was the one who perpetrated the entire coup in order to create a scenario in which he'd be "forced" to sign the pact with the Kingdom of Lugnica.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Yang Sword Vollachia (陽剣ヴォラキア Youken Vorakia): As the emperor of Vollachia, Vincent owns a completely crimson sword known as the Yang Sword Vollachia. The sword appears out of thin air when the user wishes to use it and it cuts and burns whatever the user wishes, similar to Typhon's authority. It is mentioned by Berstetz Fondalfon that only those who have the necessary qualities for the throne of Vollachia are able to wield the sword.
