The Binding Blade

Narcian: You be careful too, Slater. Don't let these scattered remnants defeat you. Should you fail, I personally will order your public evisceration.
Slater: ...... Have mercy...!

— Slater and Narcian

Slater (Japanese: スレーター Slater) is a knight of Bern who is left in charge of Castle Araphen by Narcian during the Disturbance of Bern.

After the Lycian League is defeated and its leader is imprisoned, Zephiel leaves the castle in Narcian's hands. However, the Wyvern General passes his work to Slater, as he is more interested in the gift that is waiting for him in Laus. While Slater seems content at first, after hearing Narcian's threats in case of failure, he becomes deeply afraid.

Slater is the boss of Chapter 3.
