The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero Introduces Crossbell’s Rival Gangs; Saber Vipers & Testaments

Publisher NIS America has updated the official website for the upcoming Nihon Falcom-developed turn-based JRPG, The Legend of Heroes: Trails from Zero, detailing Crossbell’s two rival gangs, the Testaments and the Saber Vipers. Their leaders are Wazy Hemisphere and Wald Wales, respectively. The two frequently butt heads over differences in philosophical and combative perspectives, initiating several group-wide battles.

Wazy Hemisphere is the calm sort and is often seen at the group’s base of operations, the Trinty bar in the Downtown District. On the other hand, Wald is aggressive and stubborn, commonly playing blaring music within Ignis, the abandoned Downtown warehouse his group resides in.

The full website descriptions for Wald, Wazy, and their gangs, are quoted below:

Testaments

A group of delinquents located in the Downtown District of Crossbell City, the Testaments fancy themselves as intellectuals. Their calm and collected leader, Wazy Hemisphere, has earned himself quite the loyal following, one that the SSS will need to monitor closely moving forward.

It seems the Trinity bar is the Testament’s base of operations, and they refer to this location as their “holy ground.” Not exactly the words I’d use to describe a bar, but it does track with the religious motif this group has adopted.

The group has a bitter rivalry with the Saber Vipers, with the two gangs often finding any excuse to go at it. It often ends up falling on us to put a stop to things before any innocent bystanders get hurt.

Saber Vipers

A group of delinquents located in the Downtown District of Crossbell City, the Saber Vipers are very rough around the edges. Its members are almost always looking for a fight, due in large part to their hot-headed leader, Wald Wales. That being said, he may be the only one strong enough to keep a group like this in line.

The Saber Vipers have occupied an abandoned warehouse named Ignis, and have been using it as their headquarters. The loud music being blasted from the building during all hours of the day is fairly unmistakable…

The group has a bitter rivalry with the Testaments, with the two gangs often finding any excuse to go at it. It often ends up falling on us to put a stop to things before any innocent bystanders get hurt.
