New Official Trails Lore Video Explains The Horrific D∴G Cult; English Translations

Nihon Falcom has shared a new video on their YouTube channel titled “C.I.D. Confidential Investigation Report #1 – The D∴G Cult.”

Spoken from the perspective of Rene Kincaid, a prominent character in The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki, this report details direct connectivity between the latest saga and events learned about in the Crossbell arc.

This goes without saying, but if you are avoiding spoilers for Trails from Zero, Trails to Azure, and Kuro no Kiseki, it’s highly advised to avoid reading the following translations and watching the linked video.

Our team’s Ryuji has translated the video’s contents, viewable below:

The D∴G Cult.

A religious group that denies the existence of Aidios. It is said they worshipped devils.

Their existence is said to originate from Crossbell, where thanks to the funds provided by Speaker Hartmann, they managed to complete Gnosis, promising him a ‘paradise’.

The cult had several locations called “lodges”. Their objective was to create an “artificial goddess”. For that purpose, they kidnapped children all across the continent and subjected them to human experiments.

Numerous experiments that went beyond their original objectives were also carried out, and are said to have produced a number of “unexpected results”.

In S.1198, with collaboration between the Bracer Guild and several other authorities such as the police force, a large-scale extermination mission was carried out. Two children were rescued, though just how much they were experimented on and what sort of after-effects they might experience remain unknown.

Considering how the video is specifically labeled with “#1,” further videos of this variety will assuredly be released before the launch of The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II Crimson Sin.
