Captain of the Ruby Knights
Grand Chase Leader
"The Captain of the Ruby Knights & Grand Chase's Leader."
- Name: Elesis Sieghart
- Age: 17 (Twelve Disciples), 19 (Dimensional Chaser)
- Hobbies: Sword training
- Likes: Intense battles, baths
- Dislikes: Easy battles
- Weakness: Dresses, ghosts
Elesis was born as the eldest daughter of the Sieghart family. She was trained as hard as possible since she was old enough to handle a sword and has been the Captain of the Ruby Knights for several years. As a child, Elesis couldn't understand her father's strict upbringing. However, as she grew older, she began to understand the importance of her father's methods and dedicated all of her time to improving her strength. Her father, Elscud, joined a team as a member of the unit dedicated to tracking Kaze'aze.
Elesis was distraught in learning that, during a battle between her father's tracking unit and Kaze'aze, her father had disappeared. Later Queen Serdin sent a secret letter to Elesis asking her to join the Grand Chase, a union of Kanavan and Serdin, dedicated to pursuing Kaze'aze. Upon receipt of this request, Elesis left home to head to Trial Forest in the kingdom of Serdin, the promised place. Here, she met two girls, Lire and Arme, who would forever change her fate.

"If I wandered around the chasm of time once more..."
Destiny has changed. Heroes from the future, the Grand Chase was destined to be engulfed by the Great Explosion of Kounat. However, because of someone's sacrifice, even though the explosion was unavoidable the Grand Chase was able to go back to their time unscathed.
The members of Grand Chase slowly disappeared one at a time past the Time and Space. Everyone was going back to their rightful place. One by one they disappeared except one. That one person was Elesis.
No, Elesis returned with her allies to her own time but at the same time, another Elesis stayed.
The reason was unknown as to why another Elesis was created and stayed. It could be from a miscalculation of Time and Space or possibly Elesis' will to stay was so strong that it created a copy of her.
Elesis was searching for Elscud but as Elscud was already dead, he was not able to welcome her. Elesis kneeled beside Elscud and gently shook his shoulder, like the time Elscud once did to wake Elesis.
Elesis still remember that night as if it was yesterday. Elscud gently woke Elesis from her sleep and handed her the title of Captain of the Ruby Knights and Sword of Ruby Knight before he disappeared. Only thing Elesis could do was sit idly as her father left.
That is when Elesis' adventure began. Kaze'aze, Ashtaroth, and Heitaros. Many powerful enemies stood before Elesis and the Grand Chase but her adventure began when she started to chase after her father's shadows. Perhaps Elscud was Elesis' starting point and destination.
Elesis tried to wake her father as he did long ago but Elscud would not wake as he was in eternal slumber. She wanted to wake her father up and return the Sword of the Ruby Knight but he stayed silent.
Elesis held Elscud and quietly sobbed as the Great Explosion of Kounat went off and she was engulfed in it with Elscud.
Elscud's corpse became shattered before Elesis' did and while her body was crumbling she yelled in anger.
"Decanee! No Kaze'aze!! I will not forgive you!"
Her hateful cry touched upon darkness itself.
As the great explosion occurred the border of Time and Space also shattered. Through the shattered border, the darkness of countless worlds seeped through and started to engulf Elesis. The shattered body of Elesis was slowly being filled by darkness. Was it Elesis that was consuming the darkness or was the darkness consuming her? There was no way of telling which was which.
When she opened her eyes again, she could no longer differentiate if she was the same person before the explosion.
She wasn't sure if this black material was her skin or armor but it was directly infused with her body and each time her heartbeat, a red light pulsed through her veins. She also had wings that sprouted out from her back. She wasn't sure if she was still human and her appearance was darkness itself.
To Elesis it wasn't important if she was still human or not, she was satisfied that she gained the power to kill Decanee.
The Sword of the Ruby Knight also took a change in its shape. It was no longer a giant sword that punished evil, it was transformed into a thorn of vengeance.
The Ruby Knight was no more. Only a Dark Executor who will stop at nothing to get her vengeance.
Elesis drew her thorn and muttered.
"Watch me, Father..."
Nothing will stand in her way even if it is herself. The Dark Executor Elesis will stop at nothing.

Lime greeted everyone she saw on the streets. People who were used to her kind behavior replied with the same greeting. Lime realized that she's missing something after thinking that today is the start of another beautiful day.
"Come to think of it... Did I run into Elesis?"
Lime always ran into Elesis who was jogging in the morning, but Elesis was not here today. She wouldn't have slept in... Did something happen to her? Lime who became very curious walked toward Elesis' house.
"Elesis! Are you home?"
"Lime? What are you doing here?"
"I didn't see you this morning."
"Huh? It's already morning?"
Elesis sighed after looking at the clock. She spent the night worrying. Lime saw Elesis' sunken eyes and realized that she was worried about something the whole night.
"Are you worried about something?"
Instead of saying anything, Elesis went back to her house and grabbed a bundle of cloth. It was a red silk cloth.
"Wow. So beautiful!"
"Her Majesty gave me new clothes. For me to wear to the New Year event."
"What's wrong with that?"
"I was thinking about wearing my armor. I don't know what to wear."
"You have to wear formal clothes if it's an event held in the kingdom. Why don't you make Lunar New Year clothes?"
"Lunar New Year clothes?"
"Yes! I saw someone wear it to a school event and it was beautiful."
Lime introduced a shop to Elesis. The owner suggested a design that would look good on Elesis. The owner was able to persuade Elesis to buy it when Elesis insisted on wearing something more casual. Elesis looked back a few times on her way back home from the shop.
"Will it look good on me?"
"Of course! Please wear it to the event I'm having at the temple!"
"Um, I'll try."
Elesis was able to sleep peacefully because her worry disappeared. However, after her clothes were delivered, Elesis was harassed by Lime. Lime who found out that her clothes were delivered wanted to style her clothes. She felt like Lime was treating her like a doll, but Elesis who couldn't wear the clothes herself relied on Lime.
"Wow! So pretty, Elesis!"
"Really? Feels a little empty here."
"Do you need more accessories?"
"Um, that's not it... oh!"
Elesis went to her room and brought out a sword. It was not a real sword but a sword made for ceremonies. To Elesis who was always wearing armor and sword, it was a useless sword. After wearing it around her waist, Elesis finally looked like she found stability.
"I knew it! I feel more stable with this around my waist."
"Uhhh, a sword with this... but they strangely go well together."
Elesis always needed her sword. Lime had no choice but to agree after looking at Elesis.
Sword of a Ruby Knight
Elesis: That night, Father woke me up to give me this sword and the title of Captain. I took the sword and just looked at my father who was leaving. I wasn't the only one feeling his emptiness. Just like how I wasn't ready to become a Captain, the knights weren't ready to follow a new captain. They complained about little things.
『What was the Captain, no the old Captain thinking...』
『Although she's a Sieghart, this isn't right.』
『Are you even aware that you are the Captain of the Ruby Knights??』
Maybe they are right. I couldn't focus on taking care of the knights because I was too busy thinking about my father who left. Get a hold of yourself, Elesis. You are now the Captain of the Ruby Knights.
Leader of Grand Chase
Arme: Me? I was re~ally looking forward to it. An adventure with elite soldiers that Queen Serdin picked herself! But Elesis... destroyed my expectations from the first day.
Elesis: Didn't destroy...
Arme: Do you know what Elesis said to me on my first day of adventure? She told me 『You're only a Magician, stay back~』.
Elesis: D-Did I say that?
Arme: She treated Lire and I like babies and ordered us around... I was hurt!
Lire: Arme, you were stubborn too. Since both of you guys didn't want to lose, you guys spent the whole day just arguing.
Kyle: Isn't it obvious for the soldier who fights in front of the party to become a Leader?
Cindy: What kind of rule is that? I will not let you become a Leader.
Kyle: Hah, doesn't matter. I'll just stay as a lonely Sword Saint...
Arme: I won't cast a protection spell on Kyle anymore.
Kyle: Tell me the story of how you defeated the villains. It's more interesting to hear from you than Grandiel.
Arme: Okay! Where shall I start?
Kyle: Wow! That's amazing... When can I become the main character of an adventure story?
Cindy: I'll tell you one more time, but you are not fit to become a Leader.
Kyle: Elesis wasn't a perfect Leader in the beginning either!
Arme: That's just a first impression! Shall we talk about Elesis's leadership now?
Kyle: You were just complaining about it.
Arme: Hey~ People might misunderstand. I like Elesis! Right? Elesis?
Elesis: Um... I know what you mean so can we stop talking about me?
Arme: Don't be embarrassed!
Elesis: Sieghart, you missed your training again?
Sieghart: Oh, it's Elesis. A genius like me doesn't need training!
Elesis: You might not need it... But everyone else needs it.
Sieghart: Is that how a Captain thinks?
Elesis: I hope you think and act like a Knight.
Sieghart: That's taking away my merit! Is there a need to make a flexible person like me into a stiff Knight?
Elesis: Are you insulting knights?
Sieghart: No, it means don't make me participate in group activities. I can do all Knight duties myself. Destroy monsters to protect people's safety! Is there anyone else who has fought more monsters than I have?
Elesis: You just enjoy fighting monsters. You can't stop disasters or wars. Knights exist in case of an emergency.
Sieghart: Of course, I wasn't trying to deny the significance of the Ruby Knights. But what can I do? I'm a genius in swordsmanship, but I don't have talent in leading people. People need to do well in what they are best at. For example, like your dad Elscud, who was excellent at leading knights.
Elesis: I know how much my father thinks of the knights... I tried my best too.
Sieghart: See. Ruby Knights are fine without me. Although you might want a talented Gladiator like me~ I hope you don't have any lingering attachments, Elesis.
Lire: Sieghart! Why are you holding onto Elesis?
Arme: Yes! Go be lazy by yourself!
Sieghart: Me? Elesis bothered me!
Lire: I bet you were making fun of Elesis again!
Arme: You mean old man!
Elesis: Ha... shall we go back?
Sieghart: Hey... are you not gonna say something? Hm... Something feels unfair...
I Do Not Need Talent in Swordsmanship
Elesis: Kyle, did you see when it crossed? You have to bend your knees when you collide.
Kyle: L-Like this?
Lass: You have to not let the body take the impact.
Ronan: The point is to lower your weight.
Elesis: Your sword will be limited if the location is fixed. So you have to be able to read the movement of your feet well. If your movement gets blocked from the opposite foot, it'll be very difficult for you.
Ronan: We will demonstrate.
Kyle: Oh, I think I can see it after hearing about it.
Lass: You see what you know.
Elesis: Make it a habit because this is the basics.
Kyle: Okay, thanks, everyone!
Ronan: The strength of a warrior comes from effort, not talent. There will be results if you put in your effort.
Lass: Yes. It's always good to emphasize the basics.
Kyle: Okay then... If there's anything more I need to know, let me know!
Elesis: Of course. First, when you hold your sword, your left hand should...
Ronan: I had something in mind too. Can I see your heels?
Lass: Do you know that you're shaking your shoulders? Your balance isn't good.
Ronan: As I expected... your weight wasn't distributed evenly. Here, it's like you're sweeping the floor...
Elesis: Wrist! Are you training your wrist as well?
Kyle: W-wait, if you all say stuff at once...
Cindy: Oh my, that's all the basics?
Arme: For them... yes.
Mari: I wonder how many books can be published if they make it into a manual.
Arme: They all say that swordsmanship doesn't need talent. Do you know why?
Arme: Because all three of them are gifted... They never felt the need for talent!
Cindy: What! Can Kyle... keep up?
Arme: Don't know...
Arme: Throw Sword Energy forward... and jump to cross the Sword Energy while slashing!
Sieghart: This is the sword skill that we Siegharts are proud of! Critical X! Today, I will select the best Critical X from the mainstream and imitators!
Arme: The world's top Critical X competition!
Kyle: Good! I will win!
Sieghart: Hehe, I didn't use Critical X for a long time.
Arme: Elscud recreated the skill that was lost.
Sieghart: So Elscud will be the judge!
Elesis: Why is father here?
Sieghart: Don't worry about the small stuff because it's a supplementary story!
Elesis: Sieghart. I just asked you to give Kyle advice. What is all this?
Sieghart: Better to see something than to just hear about it, so it's better to act it out! This will help you improve a lot faster than just hearing my words.
Kyle: That's true! This Sword Saint is going to learn everything, so everyone should be nervous!
Sieghart: Oh! You are ready to learn.
Arme: Now, shall we start? The first person is the wandering swordsman from Demon World, Zero!
Zero: Thank you. Gran, you ready? Gran X!
Sieghart: Oh, this is more serious than I thought. Jump timing after throwing Sword Energy and the timing for when to cross the Sword Energy. Everything is on point.
Zero: I analyzed Elscud's posture.
Arme: So you've never learned Critical X before?
Zero: Yes... I fought against Elscud once.
Sieghart: You just copied it after seeing it once? Wow!
Zero: Oh, um... I analyzed it a few times with Gran. Gran helps me with the timing too.
Sieghart: Grandark and Swordsman's duet! It's amazing how they combine their skills and replay a skill!
Arme: Wow... excuse us for calling you an imitator.
Zero: Thank you.
Sieghart: So his score is?
Elscud: ......8 points.
Sieghart: Oh, a good score!
Arme: With this spirit, next is swordsman, Kyle!
Kyle: Alright! My turn! You will soon call me Sword Saint and not a swordsman. Critical X!
Sieghart: Huh? This is Critical X? Something... looks very different.
Arme: Is Kyle too nervous?
Elesis: We have no choice. Kyle never learned Critical X properly, and he has never seen it. He just imagined it from what Grandiel told him. Right?
Kyle: Yes, Elesis is right. 『Elesis always jumped like an arrow and attacked enemies with the Sword Energy.』 『That skill is Sieghart family's skill, Critical X.』 Grandiel used to say it like that.
Sieghart: That elf is talented in literature. He could've just shown you using illusions.
Kyle: Oh... never thought of it!
Sieghart: hahaha, you're funny. So you learned sword movements from words? Elscud. Can you rate this too?
Elscud: ......7 points for skill, 9 points for the idea!
Arme: Yes! I thought your idea was great.
Sieghart: You interpreted it in your way, right? I look forward to your improved Critical X!
Kyle: I will get a better score next time!
Arme: Now, Elesis? It's your turn.
Elesis: Whew, okay. Hiya, Critical X!
Elscud: Movement of the feet, sword trace, and weight distribution... Everything is perfect. This is the true Critical X! 10 points! Perfect score! You win!
Elesis: This is too biased!
Sieghart: Your power increased!
Zero: I can feel myself getting stronger just by looking at it.
Kyle: This is the true power of Critical X!
Zero: I'm sorry for attacking you.
Elscud: No, don't worry about it. Since I'm not welcomed in Demon World.
Zero: How did you end up in Demon World?
Elscud: I don't know, maybe I'm unlucky or it's destiny......... Do you want to listen to my story since there's enough time?
Zero: Ah, why did the dimensional gap happen then...
Elscud: At first, I tried so hard to go back to Aernas. But, after wandering around different dimensions that surround Aernas... I saw things I couldn't see at Aernas. So... I couldn't go back.
Zero: Um... Is that why you came to the Demon World?
Elscud: Maybe or maybe not... Everything is connected to something... I will eventually reach the end of this road.
Zero: Elscud looked like a monk who was practicing asceticism. Although you might be disappointed at him for not contacting you... Elscud was doing his job.
Elesis: Yes... that's my dad. I would've already met him if he stayed in one place.
Zero: You guys are alike. Elscud was chasing after something too. Just like how Elesis is chasing after something big right now. Come to think of it, the start of Grand Chase is...
Elesis: That's right. Taking over father's duties was the start of Grand Chase.
Zero: ......Since Elscud was a previous member of Grand Chase, he is one of the Grand Chase seniors.
Elesis: Thank you for thinking that way. Yes. This journey is a way for me to accomplish his wish. Although... I can't see him again...
New Hardliner Soldier 1: Can we just run away like this when we got our base taken?
New Hardliner Soldier 2: What can we do when the commander ran away?
New Hardliner Soldier 1: No. Isn't it a perfect time for us to contribute?
New Hardliner Soldier 2: How? Do you have a plan?
New Hardliner Soldier 1: Well...
New Hardliner Soldier 2: Really? Afraid of ghosts? The enemy's Leader has an unexpected weakness.
New Hardliner Soldier 1: My friend was deployed in Burning Canyon's grave. I heard from him. I'm sure.
New Hardliner Soldier 2: Whew, scared me.
Radical: I didn't know the enemy's Leader had a weakness... Are you sure about this?
New Hardliner Soldier 1: Y-yes. Radical.
Radical: Fuhuhu. It's time for me to redeem myself.
New Hardliner Soldier 2: I'll show her my true power! Now, I'll prepare the ghosts, and you guys set up a trap!
New Hardliner Soldier 1: Yes!
New Hardliner Soldier 1: Fuhuhu.
New Hardliner Soldier 2: You came without knowing that it's a trap!
Elesis: Trap? Ugh!
Radical: Hahaha! How do you like that? This is a ghost attack! Are you scared? Don't you want to scream?
Elesis: ......Is this all you got?
Radical: Hehehe. I know that your weakness is ghosts. So I don't need to bring more soldiers.
Elesis: Is that right?
Radical: N-No! I was told you're afraid of ghosts!
Elesis: I was scared of ghosts. But, not anymore!
Radical: W-What do you mean?
Elesis: You don't need to know!
Elesis: Whew... That's good. I'm glad I brought the sacred item that Lime gave me. Oh... I left it in the room...
The Time Gap
Elesis: My adventure started as chasing after my father. I've always been waiting for the moment to reunite with my father. But... But, I don't think it's a good time to be happy about reuniting.
Elscud: ......Elesis, I want to stop you.
Elesis: Why? Why is Father... with Kaze'aze? Have you forgotten your duties?
Elscud: ......Yes, I didn't do my job properly. Instead, you did my job.
Elscud: But, it's not the end for Kaze'aze or Ashtaroth. Soon... Grand Chase members will meet a true mastermind.
Elesis: The Demon God... by Baldinar... And the Great Explosion that destroyed Kounat was our fault...
Elscud: You guys can't die like that. I will take care of this... You and your friends should not be involved with the past.
Elesis: ......No. According to my father's words... Nobody knows what's going to happen in the future. So it's not guaranteed that we will fail. Won't it be better for him to let us follow him? Grand Chase pursues possibilities.
Elscud: ......Well, if I could persuade with my words, the future would not have been predicted that way... I look forward to the path that you chose. But I will go on a different path.
Elesis: But... I couldn't say my father's story to anyone. Everything went as my father said. Dimensional Chasm that appeared at the end of Tower of Disappearance... was a trap by Heitaros. We all fell into different dimensions after the fight. But... According to my father's words, we will eventually meet again. And we will go back in time to Kounat. I'm sure I will overcome it even if the future is set. Father, I will follow the path I believe in...
Elesis: Father's shadow was like a big burden. To meet other people's expectations, I had to fight against the darkness in front of everyone. Although there were suffering and pain, I was able to come this far thanks to my friends who supported me. Our path is clear. We need to go together.
Sword of the Ruby Knight
A Claymore that can only be possessed by the Captain of the Ruby Knights.
One night, my father woke me up in the middle of the night and handed me this sword and the title of Captain. I received the sword and just idly stared as my father left.
Ever since I was little, I hated my father more than I liked him. Most memories I have of my father is training endlessly. I have never received any gift from him, other than this sword.
I didn't love my father but...
