Much more is coming. It might be a bit slow (both Tachyon and myself have families to attend to) but there's tons more stuff in the works.

Good stuff.
Pretty short, but I guess there aren't much info available on them translated in English.

Thanks Nu Soard! :D

My pleasure. I'll be working on Fillmore based characters next.

The one character I think we'll get more info on as time goes on will be Saylay, since she's playing a starring role in The Majestic Stand, but I guess we'll have to wait until the FSS Designs book with Colus comes out.

There are some problems with the profile for Trao Ballanka.

1. He is a cousin of Rupus Ballanka, not his son. (so Rupus' profile will have to be edited too)
2. There was more mention of him as a close personal friend of Paurouth Randers - the younger brother of Mirage Knight #14 Sharie Randers rather than of Colus 23rd. In fact this is how he met his future wife sharie - at the grave of her brother, and it was love at first sight for him.


Some additional details that might be of interest.

After taking over Rupus as Head of House Ballanka, he also becomes the king of Ballanka, together with his wife Sharie, they tutored and assisted Colus 24th.

Nu Soard, should I change the profiles?

I agree with Rubel Colus.
Trao is not Rupus' son.

I think there is a detailed Colus family tree in Knight Flags, but I am at work now.
During the WaxTrax days, I translated that page to English.
When I get back home I'll see if I can scan that, if nobody has done it by then...

Or if anyone can scan and post it during the day, I'll translate the part that deals with the Ballanka house.
Thanks.

With that confirmation I'll make the change. I'd be happy to scan the page but I need to get home from work first.

I didn't do a careful job with this scan. No color correction or anything. Does that help?

Sorry about being late.
I didn't get to come home right after work...

Anyways, reading from Tachyon's scan: Trao is Rupus's brother.
WTF? :shock:
I don't remember reading this before.
Really should read this book more carefully now hahaha.

Thanks for the scan Tachyon!

They're not cousins? They're brothers?

I never realized that either.
Gotta admit I never read the entire Knight Flags (since it's so long and boring) but this is a big surprise.

PS I absolutely won't feel bad or anything if you ask other people for verification.
Kinda confused myself.
I've even sent emails to a couple people to see if they knew about this. heh

Awww this is one of the inconsistencies of FSS.

According to sources other than this KF chart, Trao is said to be the cousin of Rupus. A quick check using Chronicle 2005 confirms this. (pg 73 Trao's profile - "ルーパスの従弟" Rupus' younger cousin)

Also, fansites also consider them as cousins, for e.g.

http://www.ne.jp/asahi/73/zukachan/Fssd ... 2.htm#Trao


I don't know if there are other official sources stating the two as brothers other than this chart. Personally, i have always thought of them as cousins and will continue to do so until newer material such as Designs 2 confirms it in writing (other than the chart - which IMHO might be a mistake).

In the case of Gearsonline's profile, I'm not sure about NSG's sources about Trao being the son, but i think that they're either brother/cousin but not father-son relation.
