Millaarc Cranstoun (ミラアルク・クランシュトウン Miraaruku Kuranshutoun?) is a member of the remnant group Noble Red, split off from the Bavarian Illuminati.

Etymology

Personality

At first glance, Millaarc appears cheerful and carefree in mundane situations, and sadistically gleeful and remorseless when facing opponents in battle. However, Millaarc's maliciousness is an act she puts on while doing "dirty work" she doesn't want Elsa or Vanessa to involve themselves in. Though Millaarc resents being forced to put on the role of a monster by people more powerful than her, she is self-aware enough to not ask for forgiveness from her victims, and she understands she is "weak", rather than a "strong" person like someone such as Tsubasa Kazanari. If Millaarc has to do something for Elsa's and Vanessa's sakes, though, she will risk her life and health to protect them.[3][4][5]

Millaarc has a verbal tic of ending most of her sentences with "da ze" (だぜ), a masculine form of speaking in Japanese. She refers to herself with the pronoun 'uchi' (うち), a pronoun usually used by women and children who speak in the Kansai dialect.

History

She originally hails from Styria (also known as Steiermark), a location in south-eastern Austria. During a trip to Slovakia, Millaarc was kidnapped by a torture club. She was then sold to a remote branch of the Bavarian Illuminati, who used her in experiments to recreate a mythical vampire, undertaken in the organization's pursuit of eternal life.

Unfortunately, the experimentation on Millaarc did not produce the planned vampire, and she was deemed a failure. Despite this failure, she still shows traits of the vampire she was meant to be — most notably in her 'Stained Glance' attack.[6] During Millaarc's time as an experimental subject, she met Vanessa Diodati and Elsa Bête.

After the collapse of the Bavarian Illuminati following Adam Weishaupt's death, Vanessa, Millaarc, and Elsa escaped their confinement. They met Fudo Kazanari, who gave them protection in exchange for cooperating with his plans, and became the remnant group Noble Red, led by Vanessa.

Synopsis

Symphogear XV

Attacks & Abilities

Abilities
She is gifted with not only the ability to fly and enough strength to be able to fight unarmed, but also the power of mind-flaying that is hidden in her cursed gaze, making her more capable of both direct and subversive attacks.

However, to keep in top form, Millaarc requires a steady supply of blood — specifically, blood of the rare type RH-Xxoyle, which is only found in one out of roughly a million people. See Panacea Formula for more details.

Stained Glance
(ステインドグランス Suteindo Guransu?)
A mysterious ability that is theorized to be a power that can be traced back to vampires of legend. This ability allows Millaarc to invade her target's mind via looking into their eyes. She was able to affect Tsubasa Kazanari with the Stained Glance, but was unable to do the same with Hibiki Tachibana due to Hibiki not being vulnerable enough, nor with Elfnein due to Carol Malus Dienheim's influence. The ability also leave a side effect on the Tsubasa, leading her to have illusion of Millaarc surrounding her.

Relationships

Vanessa Diodati, Elsa Bête — Millaarc considers Vanessa and Elsa to be her precious family. She will actively risk her own safety to protect them, and Millaarc intentionally involves herself in doing Noble Red's dirtiest work so Vanessa and Elsa won't have to be burdened by it.[8]

Tsubasa Kazanari — Millaarc has interacted with Tsubasa very little beyond slaughtering her concert audience and mind-controlling her as part of Fudo Kazanari's plans. A comment by Millaarc given during her first battle with Tsubasa hints that Millaarc may admire her strength as a person, but it's ambiguous if Millaarc meant this genuinely or merely as a taunt.[9]

Quotes

  • (To Tsubasa) "Yes. We're weak! That's why we're not ashamed to do this!"'

Trivia

  • Millaarc's past appears to be a reference to the 2005 horror/slasher film, Hostel. In Hostel, during a trip to Slovakia, the protagonists are captured by the Elite Hunting Club, an organization where rich people pay to gruesomely torture and then murder victims.
