A mysterious burst linker who lives in the Imperial Palace. He wields the fifth star of the Seven Arcs, «The Infinity».
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Azure Heir's real-life appearance is described by Koto Takanouchi to be attractive in a very Japanese way, with his hair styled in a bowl-cut fashion. At the time, he was wearing a navy blazer and ivory pants.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Azure Heir is a kind burst linker who is rather naive. He helps Silver Crow and Ardor Maiden escape when they are trapped within the Imperial Palace. His manner of speech is that of the feudal lords of Japan.
Chronology[edit | edit source]
He first showed himself in front of Silver Crow and Ardor Maiden within the inner sanctum of the Imperial Palace. He introduced himself as Trilead Tetraoxide and guided them during their stay. To the surprise of Haruyuki and Utai, Azure Heir was in the opposite situation as the vast majority of Burst Linkers. While most Burst Linkers were locked outside of the Castle, trying to find a way inside, Azure Heir was locked inside of the Castle, trying to find a way outside.
When they were ready to escape, Azure Heir used The Infinity to force open the gate leading outside, thanking Haruyuki and Utai for meeting him before closing the gates once again.
In Volume 18, it revealed his parent is Graphite Edge. He introduced his parent to Haruyuki when he entered the Imperial Palace the second time alongside Sky Raker and Metatron. After Haruyuki's second intrusion into the Castle, Azure Heir also escaped alongside him.
Shortly before the attack on Oscillatory Universe in Volume 20, Azure Heir met with Haruyuki and Kuroyukihime in the Unlimited Neutral Field to officially become a member of Nega Nebulus. Coincidentally, he had dived in the same cafe as Cobalt Blade and Manganese Blade of Leonids, the blue legion. Suspecting that the real-life persona of Azure Heir was a spy from the White Legion, the Dualis followed him into the Unlimited Neutral Field. There, they realized that it had all been a big misunderstanding. In the short conversation afterwards, the two sisters were extremely impressed by Azure Heir's weapon, The Infinity.
In Volume 21, during the attack on Oscillatory Universe during the Territories that same day, Azure Heir was spared from the Infinite PK trap set by the White Legion. After Silver Crow and Lime Bell escaped from the trap and were subsequently attacked by Shadow Cloaker of Oscillatory Universe, Azure Heir saved both of them, killing Shadow Cloaker in the process. Afterwards, he assisted Silver Crow and Lime Bell in recovering the true form of Metatron, as well as in the fight against Rose Milady of the White Legion. Finally, he sacrificed himself in the process of transporting Lime Bell to the location of the other Nega Nebulus members in order to dissolve the White Legion trap.
Avatar[edit | edit source]
His blue avatar is modelled after a feudal daimyo, looking like a "young samurai".
Abilities[edit | edit source]
His innate avatar ability is unknown. However, his saturated blue color suggests that his avatar specialized in close-ranged combat.
His Enhanced Armament, «The Infinity» possesses a special property. The longer it stays sheathed, the more powerful its initial attack becomes. As the name suggest, it is infinite in terms of how high the damage becomes.
Incarnation[edit | edit source]
Azure Heir possess two known Incarnate Skills
- Heavenly Stratus - This Incarnate skill used by Azure Heir is likely a second-stage Incarnate ability that combines Range Expansion and Attack Enhancement. Heavenly Stratus consists of a horizontal sword slash from left to right, immediately followed by a vertical slash from top to bottom, drawing out a large "X" shape that then flies forward. When used in combination with the straight-sword Infinity, Heavenly Stratus contains enough attack power to break the seals on the Castle gates.
- Genuine Specular - Genuine Specular is a defensive-type Incarnate skill used by Azure Heir. When used, the Infinity will be brandished horizontally, turning into a large mirror shield. This ability is used by Azure Heir to mainly defend himself and his comrades. While Heavenly Stratus provides attack power, Genuine Specular provides defensive ability.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
