— Vylon, to Sigurd

(Japanese: バイロン Vylon) was the Duke of Grannvale's House Chalphy until Grann 760, and the father of Sigurd and Ethlyn.

Biography

Highly renowned as both a politician and a warrior, Vylon served with Ring of Jungby as a direct advisor and confidante to Prince Kurth. At some point during his life, he somehow drew the ire of Duke Langobalt of Dozel, whose utter hatred for Vylon and the Chalphy family as a whole would drive him in later years.[1]

At the onset of the war with Isaach in Grann 757, Vylon accompanied Kurth on the war's front lines as his right-hand man. Under their leadership, Grannvale won the war, but on the return trip the two were assaulted by Langobalt, who assassinated Kurth; Vylon survived but was severely injured and Tyrfing was broken, and he fled the scene and disappeared for a time afterward.[2] Langobalt and Reptor, with Arvis's assistance, successfully framed Vylon and Sigurd for the conspiracy to kill Kurth, prompting Sigurd to seek refuge in Silesse.

Vylon reappeared near the Silesse border in Grann 760, seeking to deliver Tyrfing's remains to Sigurd. He was sighted by Langobalt's subordinate Slayder at Lubeck Castle, their base in preparation to assault Silesse to apprehend Sigurd, who in response ordered an all-out assault to kill him before he could reach Sigurd. Upon reaching Sigurd, he handed over Tyrfing and told him of Langobalt and Reptor's role in Kurth's death, then died from his wounds.

Role

Vylon acts as a partner unit in Chapter 5, appearing between Zaxon and Lubeck Castles. He will seek to talk to Sigurd to give him Tyrfing in its Broken Sword state, dying after doing so; if for whatever reason the player fails to talk to him with Sigurd and he survives, he will disappear from the map when Lubeck is seized and Sigurd will not receive Tyrfing.

Personality and character

Vylon was an honorable and wise man, highly respected by his peers (aside from Reptor and Langobalt); Kurth valued his advice immensely, seeking it above all else on many matters.[3] For his part, Vylon was always highly concerned about Kurth's welfare and that of the Belhalla royal family as a whole, particularly in light of the potential risk of the lineage dying if anything happened to Kurth.[4]
