Asbel (Japanese: アスベル Asvel) is a young mage from the Free City of Fuerth in the Munster District, a member of the Magi and an apprentice to the group's leader, Prince Ced of Silesse. He first met and befriended Leif during the latter's time in Tahra in Grann 773, but lost track of him when Leif fled, and his search to find Leif again eventually led him to Munster, where he joined the Magi.

When the Magi broke into the Munster Castle dungeon during Leif's tenure there, Asbel accompanied Ced into the dungeon bowels to search for captured children. Ced tasked Asbel with finding Leif and aiding him in his escape from Munster and rebellion against the Grannvale Empire's hold on the Munster District.

Personality and character
Asbel is highly fond of and close to Leif, and the two had once vowed to work together to liberate Thracia before Leif's disappearance from Tahra. When Leif disappeared, Asbel was determined to find him again, dedicating three years to his search and never giving up. Asbel is similarly determined to free the Thracian Peninsula from Grannvale, willing to risk his own life and endure any hardship if it means Thracia's freedom.
Asbel, Guided by the Winds
Asbel fought alongside Leif for the entirety of the war, serving as his trusted aide and confidant. For each step Leif took down that harsh road, Asbel was always beside him, helping him shoulder the war's burdens. Afterward, he returned to his hometown of Fuerth, where he became a priest, as his father was before him. In only a few short years, tales of Asbel the Sage had spread to every corner of the land.
