Eclair is the Knight of Melromarc and also happens to be the daughter of Seaetto, the Queen's right hand man and who is in-charge of Demihuman protected village.
Eclair is one of the few, out of the many of Melromarc, to not discriminate against demi-humans. She would question Naofumi's methods, such as how he extorted from bandits, which became ironic later as she did the same thing. She is a noble person in belief and a staunch in her ideal belief, until it was shaken by the incidents.
Eclair also seems to have an innocent side where she believes in Santa and had waited all night just to meet him.
Her appearance is that of a standard female knight from a game with blue eyes and strawberry-blonde hair. She has a face that could rival Raphtalia’s in beauty, but she looks like she would fit the role of a Wicked Queen perfectly somehow.
- Peerless Activity: Eclair builds up essence inside during the instant she attacks or avoids. So to speak, it’s similar to handling protection magic. Rishia excels at maintaining that activity for a long time. If Eclair tries to imitate her, she can probably only hold it for a minute.
Hengen Musou SkillsEdit
- Multilayer Crumble Attack: A barrage of many defense penetrating attacks.
- Heat Haze: Eclair becomes a blur while avoiding.
Eclair is the daughter of the person who used to be the lord of Naofumi’s land. Though she was away at the castle for a long time training to be a knight. She never spent much time there, so her memories of the place were vague.The story differs greatly in Ln from Wn.In Wn, Her father fought on the front lines during the first wave in order to let the people flee, and perished. Before he died, her father told her to, ‘Live nobly without any regrets’. In Ln however, her father was killed by the church of the three heroes.
(In Wn) Later, she and many others were stationed in that land, however, adventurers, and a portion of the knights and soldiers began hunting Demi-Humans. She objected to these people, and was imprisoned for standing up for the Demi-humans who were supposed to be living peacefully on that land.She considered the slave system to be a necessary evil. But, for people who were being devastated by the wave, people who, until that day were citizens they were supposed to protect, what meaning was there for knights to assault them!?
She was accused of having Demi-Human blood, and being a brainwashed follower of the Devil of the Shield. She was told that she was not a suitable individual for knighthood. So when the heroes were summoned and she was being treated as a prisoner, in a jail cell at the castle. Eventually, she was proclaimed innocent by the Queen and released. This was around the time the heroes were at Cal Mira Island.
But (in Ln), she hunted down the slave hunters involved in that incident and brought them to justice which took time for her to meet the heroes.
She is introduced in chapter 137 accompanied by other knights, one of whom is identified as part of the volunteer army that helped Naofumi during the third wave. She was often refereed by Iwatani Naofumi as the Female Knight. In LN, Nafoumi requested trainers to help the heroes to improve their skill. She was asked to act as a martial arts instructor for the Naofumi's slaves in Rock Valley to prepare for the next wave.She along with other expert help to improve the skill of Nafoumi's party.
Rn completely looked down on her which led her to a duel with him. Ren broke the rules and beat her much to ire of everyone. He completely thrown a tantrum and called her weak.She was enraged, until queen stepped in to diffuse the situation.
Female Knight participated on the front lines of some of the fights against the Spirit Turtle. Raphtalia gave credit to her success to Eclair for training her. Once again she was taken back by Nafoumi's attempt to claim the treasure of spirit tortoise and assisted in stopping everyone of the coalition army from taking the treasure.
After returning from the other world, Nafoumi highly criticized Eclair's naivety in rebuilding the territory and took it upon himself to rebuild it. Shortly after his village was attacked by 50 or so slave hunters, Nafoumi apprehended all of them and Eclair identified atleast a few of the former soldier in them. Eclairs revealed about their punishment and the pressure in favor of the culprits by the nobles. Even Eclairs was more shocked by Nafoumi way of handling things of planing to sell all of the slave hunters Siltvelt and using the money to buy all the Raphtalia's villagers.But she remained silent as they might able to escape the grasp of the royal with the help of nobles. This incident also threatened any other slave hunters from approaching the village.Eclairs for the first time saw Nafoumi's realistic approach from her idealistic one.
Later when Granny was appointed as the Battle Instructor and took some of the residents to the mountains for training, Eclair took a "vacation" to follow her so she can learn the Hengen Musou style under the instructor's tutelage. Being impressed by Eclair's enthusiasm to learn, the instructor taught her the sword basics of the style.
She joined Naofumi, Rishia, Atla and Gaelion on a mission to subdue bandits in the area, but was perplexed by Naofumi's actions in his robbing of the bandits' treasures due to her noble beliefs in justice. Nafoumi promised to return the stolen goods if she was able to find the genuine owner. She realized that all of Nafoumi's action are necessary evil and that his village alone is bouncing back in full force than any-other territory affect by spirit tortoise and realized it was all of the actions which she disgusted with. (In wn)Eclair later stopped Naofumi from committing a serious error in killing Amaki Ren, who was afflicted with the Curse Series of Greed and Gluttony and became the bandits' current leader.But in Ln, She then took upon the responsibility to capture Ren herself by using her Hengen Musou techniques she recently learned.
After returning to the village with Ren, Eclair revealed to Naofumi she promised Raphtalia to prevent him from doing something bad while his right-hand ally is away on her training with Granny, to which Naofumi agreed reflectively on the events that happened in his attempted murder on Ren. She later acts as Ren's surveillance guard and trainer during his recuperation and adaption to Rock Valley's residence.
During the rebellion, Ecair joined Ren in protecting the neighboring village against the brainwashed victims of Justice and the remnants of the Three Heroes Church. However, she became shocked at the Justice zombies' arguments that questioned to positions of humans and demi-slaves that her morale was affected and eventually withdrew herself into Melty's mansion over the course of the incident.
Due to the rebellion affecting her sense of ideals, Eclair believes that the incident taught her to be more realistic and that committing evil for the sake of the people in Rock Valley is just, especially by imitating Naofumi's conducts. This greatly worries Naofumi though as he thinks Eclair is growing in a weird direction that may turn into a tyrant if handled badly, so he leaves it to Ren to help prevent her from going down that path.
