Product Details:

Click here to read an interview with Dee Lee, Producer for Kingdom under Fire: The Crusaders, Phantagram, LTD. This game is playable on the Xbox Live Online System. For a full list of Xbox Live products, click here! 50 years have passed since the Second Great War of Heroes. The Ancient Heart, the legendary artifact that caused the Great War, was long gone. Legends of the Ancient Heart circulated throughout the land after the Great War, but the slow passage of time caused many to forget the devastation once brought by the artifact. The memories of the dreadful powers hidden within the Ancient Heart, once responsible for deaths of thousands, were beginning to fade. The Papal Court of Ecclesia further discouraged the legends, determining the Ancient Heart to be the work of pure evil, and exiling all who would seek its knowledge. The land of Bersia stood in peace as the former combatants mended their wounds.

However, history has a tendency to repeat itself.

Without warning, a village near the border of the Sacred Land - where Ancient Heart rested - was invaded by the merciless Orcs. In response to this foul act, Hironeiden declared war against the evil Vellond and began their invasion of Hexter. Ecclesia immediately entered the war as well, in the name of protecting this Holy Ground.

Human Characters:

Gerald
A captain in the Hironeiden Eastern Defense Force, he joined the Hironeiden Army six years ago as a mere soldier. He attained the rank of Captain of the Eastern Defense Force, 4th Division, two years ago when he demonstrated unrivaled bravery during the Hexter invasion. He excels at analyzing a situation accurately and realistically, and values one's skill over rank or bloodline. Because of his unbiased nature, he is well-liked among his colleagues and soldiers. By showing exceptional valor and power during the War of Bersia, he was promoted to Captain of entire Eastern Defense Force. Equipped with a clever mind and quick-wit, he has the ability to execute unconventional tactics swiftly and efficiently.

Kendall

A general of 2nd Division Ecclecian Holy Knights. He was born in Azilia, a tributary of Ecclesia, and was sent to the Holy Ground to defend it against the Dark Legion. As an Azilian, he must always maintain his faith in God. Although he has some issues with his assignment defending the Holy Ground, his beliefs prevent him from objecting. With precise calculations, honor and high morale, he could bring his troops' power to the maximum.

Rupert

Human male
Main skill : Melee
Main weapon : Mace, War hammer, Morning star

Rupert has been through countless ups and downs with Gerald ever since they joined the army. Having a huge body and enormous power, he wields a 50 pound hammer to aid Gerald on the field. Despite of his outer appearance, he frequently tells sarcastic jokes to Ellen. This is how he expresses that he cares for her.

Ellen

Human female
Main skill : Ranged
Main weapon : Rapier and buckler, bow

Among the rough and crude soldiers of Hironeiden, it's almost odd that such a beautiful female soldier is one of them. However, most men fear her foul mouth which spits out unspeakable swears. Even if one endures all the insults and manages to approach her, he would suffer several injuries by her superior swordsmanship. She volunteered to join Gerald's army about 2 years ago, but no one knows her true background.

Duane

Human male, Knight
Main Skill : Melee
Main Weapoon : 2H sword

He is a knight from a honorable, but fallen house of Ecclesia Colonok. He volunteered to join the defense force of the Holy Ground to reestablish his house's name. For this reason, he tends to distinguish himself by performing extreme moves on the battlefield.

Thomas

Human male
Main skill : Melee, Riding
Main weapon : Flail

Kendal's friend, also the son of the Head of Papal Security Walter. His father asked Kendall to drag Thomas along so that he can learn the way of the battlefield.

Dark Legion Characters:

Regnier

The Lord of Hexter. He has monstrous strength compared to normal human beings, using brutal tactics with overwhelming power. He is a man of many mysteries and no one knows his background. About two years ago, he appeared out of nowhere and greatly aided Valdemar in suppressing the rebellions. The Orcs and Ogres who have seen Regnier's power obey him blindly and willingly.

Lucretia

A Dark Elf, she is one of the captains of the Vellond troop. Her mission is to investigate why Regnier invaded the villages near the Holy Ground, while simultaneously aiding his troops. She excels at quick and effective assaults rather than long and enduring battles. She tends to be a bit short-tempered and hysterical.

Cirith

Dark elf female
Main skill : Melee, Elemental
Main weapon : 1H sword, magic

She is a pretty face, buta slightly air-headed female. She's very proud of her heritage as a dark elf. She acts as a butt-kisser for Lucretia, but her true intention is to spy on Rithrin.

Morene Strident

Half-vampire female
Main skill : Ranged melee
Main weapon : Iron chain

Cold-hearted beauty. Although her beauty is beyond human comprehension, she doesn't even twitch her eyes as she kills others. Morene also works as a supervisor just like Leinhart. Lucretia, who thinks of Dark-elves as the most prestigious race of all, hates Morene for being a half-vampire. Not only that, for Morene is a supervisor and prettier than Lucretia. People call her 'Strident' frequently, but she does not care.

Leinhart

Half ? Vampire Male
Main skill : Ranged melee
Main weapon : Scythe

Leinhart is one of the supervisors that keeps an eye on each lord - sent by Vellond to watch Regnier. Half-vampires usually pledge their allegiances only to King Valdemar because of the discrimination on their race byothers. However, Leinhart - just like Urukubarr - was mesmerized by Regnier's power and charisma, and works secretly as Regnier's right arm. Although it's typical for supervisors to be assigned to new areas every year for various reasons, Leinhart was allowed to remain beside Regnier because of King Valdemar's trust on Regnier.

Urukubarr

Ogre male
Main skill : Melee
Main weapon : Bare hand, War hammer

He once was the chief of the most powerful orc-ogre tribe called Gorzanik. But he fell to his knees because of Regnier's power. Now Urukubarr defends Hexter and has pledged his allegiance to Regnier on one condition - Regnier must rule Hexter. By being a simple minded Ogre, he gives absolute loyalty to Regnier, even it means his life.
