Magna Carta II Story and Characters Info

Hey guys!
I’ve just realized that the Story and Characters info in wikipedia about Magna Carta II is taken from the Official Visual Book Lol
Wiki only stuck at Schuenzheit’s info, isnt it? I have more characters info to share and I add some missing info that wiki dont state in green color. It’s a spoiler free, only about their personality and past story ^^

STORY
Over a thousand years, the land was restored to its former glory. Its many races lived in peace and harmony.
But the shadows of war were closing in.
It all began when Queen Ibrin of the Kingdom of Lanzheim was assassinated at the hands of Prime Minister Schuenzeit.
Schuenzeit's audacity knew no bounds.
He imprisoned the queen's only daughter, Princess Rzephillda, then usurped the royal crown. One by one, he had all who opposed him put to death.
It was during this time that Princess Rzephillda, through great hardship, managed to escape.
She fled south to the city of Abazet, and joined forces with its ruler, Count Alex.
They formed the Southern Forces Army under the banner of "liberation", and rose up in revolt against Schuenzeit's own Northern Forces Army, composed of former Lanzheim Army troops.

In the year 1150 of the Lanzheim Calendar, Schuenzeit launched an exhaustive campaign to stamp out the Southern Forces Army, resulting in the outbreak of the Lanzheim Civil War.
At first, the South – fighting to see the restoration of the throne – fought fiercely, and forced the Northern Forces Army back to their capital at Belfort.
In triumph, the Southern Forces Army set forth toward the capital. They did not know that Schuenzeit was there waiting for them, with an army of living weapons known as "Sentinels".
What followed was absolute slaughter.

With no way to counter the creatures' awesome power, the Southern Forces Army was forced to retreat, back to their stronghold of Abazet.
Princess Rzephillda founded the elite Counter-Sentinel Unit and took to the battlefield herself, but it was not enough to turn the tide of the battle.
In desperation Rzephillda sent her bodyguard Rue to Belfort to discover how Sentinels are made.
Rue found what she was looking for but was discovered by the Northern Forces Army in the process.
Rzephillda set out to Belfort to save Rue.

Finally reunited, Rzephillda and Rue make their way for home, evading the enemies' persistent attempts to track them.
But at last, they found standing in their path the notorious northern general, Elgar "The Regicide".
Rue drew her sword to defend the Princess, but the difference in power was obvious.
Elgar raised his sword to deal the finishing blow to Rue.

CHARACTERS
Juto (Male - Swordsman - Counter-Sentinel Unit Member)
The young protagonist of the game. Juto is an amnesiac. With no knowledge of his past, he settled down into a normal life on Highwind Island, until his life was turned upside-down by the war. Melissa, who gave him the name Juto, has been like a big sister to him ever since he came to Highwind Island without his memory. Though very outgoing in his personality. Juto can be very childish at times, particularly when it comes to taking orders from others.

Zephie (Female - Wind Wizard - Counter-Sentinel Unit Leader)
Rzephillda Grena Berlinette
The game's heroine, she is the rightful heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Lanzheim, which was stolen by a usurper. She now leads the Counter-Sentinel Unit, a special unit of the Southern Forces Army, in the hope of one day retrieving her throne and restoring peace to the empire. The hardships she has experienced, such as her mother's assassination and her subsequent imprisonment, have lent her an unusually cool and unshakable demeanor for a girl her age – she even seems older than Juto. The reason she represses her true emotions is for the sake of the many complicated roles she plays.
She has a strong sense of responsibility and is willing to put her life on the line for her cause. She has a kind and caring side as well and always shows concern for those around her. She judges herself harshly and her patience and self-sacrifice know no bounds.

Rue (Female - Lightning Wizard - Counter-Sentinel Unit Member)
Siara Rue Tessia
Her full name is Siara Rue Tessia, but after she became Zephie's bodyguard, she started calling herself "Rue". She is older and more mature than her childish appearance would suggest – the exact opposite of Celestine. Having trained from a young age to be Zephie's bodyguard, she has learned to repress her emotions, and to always act in a level-headed manner. Clever, cunning, and fearless, her training has given her a black and white view of the world. As a result, she dislikes breaking rules and promises, and has a hard time seeing things from another person's perspective.
She is currently trying to improve this aspect of herself.

Crocell Reeden (Male - Fire Wizard - Counter-Sentinel Unit Member)
A young fire wizard in the Counter-Sentinel Unit, Crocell may look like a cute little boy, but he has a rude way of speaking, and he's not afraid to speak out about anything he doesn't like. He has a hard time getting close to people or being honest with himself, but he's very good at pushing other people's buttons – a trait that often leads him into conflict with the short-tempered Juto.
Though a slave to his emotions, he’s a courageous young man with a strong sense of justice, even if his kindness tends to take forms that no one can see. One of his daily pleasures is teasing the amnestic Juto  for being like a child who knows nothing about the world.
He lost his parents and his little sister in the war, and hates the Northern Forces Army because of it.
Although he fights more fiercely than anyone, he takes no real pride in being part of the Southern Forces Army.

Celestine Roaa (Female | Ice Wizard | Archer)
A lively, high-spirited Mare girl. The Mare people look just like humans, but their lifespan is a little under 40 years. They reach physical maturity at the age of 10, and remain young-looking until they die. Psychologically speaking, though, they mature at the same rate as humans do, so even though Celestine's has the body of an adult, her mind is still that of a young girl. As such, she always speaks her mind, and expresses her true feelings without hesitation – with Celestine, what you see is what you get.
Her youth and inexperience can lead her to be too trusting of others, but she can be extremely driven when she has a goal in her sights. She likes to use her abilities as an ice wizard in the battlefield.

Argo Kindu (Male | Warrior | Counter-Sentinel Unit Member)
A warrior of the long-lived Trewa race. Argo has a massive body as hard as a rock. Level-headed, patient, and responsible, he often plays the role of mediator during arguments. A very responsible person, he's usually slow to anger – though if he does lose his temper, he becomes like an unstoppable inferno. He possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of Lanzheim, and seems far wiser and more knowledgeable than other Trewa of the same age.
He does not like to assert himself, preferring to listen to the opinions of others. He hopes to see the war end so that he can go back to a life of peace; though an excellent fighter, he has little stomach for combat.

Igton Pin (Male - Avis Mechanic)
A survivor of the machine-building Avis race. Though the Avis’ home was destroyed in a war many years earlier, they have somehow managed to rebuild from scratch. Optimistic & jovial, he is at his cheeriest in the darkest of circumstances. Since he speaks so quickly, he often leaves the people around him even more annoyed. Though he was raised without any particular hardship, witnessing the brutality of war has left him yearning to go to La Strada. Nevertheless, he has decided to live his life cheerfully and without care, and never gets carelessly angry.

Melissa Tiss (Female - Swordsman)
With a protective attitude and the abilities to back it up, Melissa leads the Highwind Island Guard. She met the lost, amnesiac Juto while she was away in tarining, and, seeing that he was alone in the world, took him back to the village with her. Her cool and disciplined character is a match for her father, who was a soldier as well. She has been living alone since her father died, and saw Juto’s arrival in her life as a chance to start a new family. Melissa is sunny and approachable, but also decisive and formidable, and willing to put her life on the line for what she believes. She is good at hiding her own weakness, and does not put her trust in others.

Alex Laimon Roodo (Male - Supreme Commander of the Southern Forces Army)
Ruler of Abazet and the leader of the Southern Forces Army. Alex holds the rank of Count. On the surface, he seems calm and mild-mannered, polite, and considerate of others. He also has a soft way of speaking. Nevertheless, prior to the war – despite being the ruler of the largest city in southern Lanzheim – he was so disliked by the higher-ranking nobles in Belfort that he was effectively barred from entering the capital.

Raud Tesura Mahan (Male - Commander of the Southern Forces Army)
Though cool and decisive, Raud possesses a determination which borders on inflexibility – until he comes up against a situation he cant control, at which point he folds completely. His loyalty to the Lanzheim Royal Familty is unwavering, and ever since enlisting in the Southern Forces Army, he has been keeping watch over Zephie – to the point that she’s had to scold him about it. He hates Schuenzeit for starting this war, and wants to see it over as quickly as possible, with Zephie on the throne.

Schuenzeit Baren (Male - Supreme Commander of the Northern Forces Army)
Formerly the Prime Minister of Lanzheim, he assassinated the queen and usurped her throne three years prior. Grave and solemn, his very presence demands deference from those around him. Even when he seems to be acting at ease, his peculiar charisma makes it impossible for others to drop their guard. Cool-headed and crafyt, there is no limit to the cruelty he is capable of if it helps him achieve his goals. He is said to be a peerless swordsman, but no one has ever seen him in action.

Elgar (Warrior of the Northern Forces Army)
The strongest and most feared warrior of the entire Northern Forces Army. Elgar is excessively cruel, and thinks nothing of taking lives – a fact which makes him an excellent killing tool. He is perfectly aware of his own superiority, and looks down on his opponents with haughty turns of phrase and an appropriately domineering manner. The only exception is Schuenzeit, towards whom he is uncharacteristically polite, but although he follows Schuenzeit’s orders faithfully, he shows little interest in his plans, or in the civil war itself.

Claire Setilan (Female - Schuenzeit’s Liutenant)
Claire has been raised by Schuenzeit ever since she was abandoned by her family as a young girl. She is like a shadow wherever Schuenzeit goes, and would gladly throw away her life for him. Cold and cynical, she sees Schuenzeit as the only person worthy of even basic courtesy. Her graceful wit makes her appear to be the complete package of brains and beauty, but deep down, she is a proud nad jealous woman. However, she is more than capable of keeping her emotions under control for the sake of her dignity. She does not often appear on the battlefield, but when she does, her commanding, seductive figure – and superlative combat ability – causes her stand out.

Huaren Joss (Male - Chief Sentinel Researcher)
The man who leads the Northern Forces Army’s Sentinel research. His research on the living weapon was made possible by Schuenzeit’s support. His body was once that of an ordinary man, but in using himself as a test subject for his experiments, he turned himself into a monster. He is consumed by his own research, and cares about nothing else in the world. He has a docile, optimistic character, but his lack of hestitation – even pleasure – as he engages in his heartless research is something truly to be feared.
