— Bloom

(Japanese: ブルーム Bloom) was the Duke of Grannvale's House Friege, and the son and successor of his father Reptor and inheritor of the holy tome Mjölnir. Appointed the "King of North Thracia" in the Grannvale Empire's occupation of the region, he ruled as the despotic governor of the Manster District territories and hunted the fugitive Prince Leif of Leonster.

Biography

Bloom succeeded the title of Duke of Friege following Reptor's death to the forces of both Sigurd and Aida in Grann 761; he was also appointed King of North Thracia following Grannvale's seizure of the territory. A few years into his reign, he learned of his "traitorous" sister Tailtiu/Ethnia's ongoing life in hiding in Silesse and travelled there, abducting Tailtiu/Ethnia and her infant daughter Teeny/Linda while failing to find her son, Arthur/Amid.[1] He took Tailtiu/Ethnia prisoner, and while he was later attested by Teeny/Linda as having been kind to her,[2] he did nothing to prevent his wife Hilda from viciously abusing the two, resulting in Tailtiu/Ethnia's eventual death; even so, in later years he would claim to have personally raised the daughter as his own child out of the goodness of his heart.[3]

By Grann 776, Bloom had set up in Alster Castle as his headquarters in governing North Thracia, during which time the Friege occupation came into conflict with Leif, exiled Prince of Leonster, and his liberation army fighting back against the occupation of the Manster District. Following Leif's recapture of Leonster, he dispatched the vast bulk of his forces against him to attempt to reclaim Leonster, resulting in Leif's army suffering major losses and becoming surrounded in a siege. Leif received reinforcements from his cousin Seliph and his army from Isaach, and the two successfully drove back the Friege army and defeated Bloom at Alster, claiming the castle for themselves. Bloom survived this encounter and fled to Conote as a temporary base, then worked at raising a force to strike back and reclaim the two enemy-held castles; to bolster his forces, he hired Faval/Asaello as a mercenary and gave the Mjölnir to his daughter Ishtar for her use in the conflict. His efforts failed and Bloom was defeated again at Conote, this time killed in battle; with him, so too died the occupation of the Manster District.

Bloom makes a brief cutscene appearance in Chapter 19, instructing the Friege army under Wolf to launch a siege of Leonster.

Personality and character

Bloom is acknowledged by Teeny/Linda as having been a somewhat decent person, at least compared to Hilda;[2] however, he was nonetheless an authoritarian despot in his rule over North Thracia, and he never did anything to intercede in Hilda's abuse of Tailtiu/Ethnia. Like Ishtar, Bloom objected to the practice of child hunts; however, for political reasons he kept his objection silent, and his sole action in opposition - hesitating to authorize the siege of Tahra - appears to have been motivated primarily by other members of the nobility voicing objection.[4] He was easily flustered and enraged when placed at anything resembling a disadvantage, readily venting his frustration at his subordinates.[5] He was not fond of the idea of losing any of his power in a crisis, and was initially reluctant to give the Mjölnir to Ishtar if it meant losing its power when he needed it.[6]
