This long sword is known as the "Starorbit Blade". Its hilt is surrounded by a cross-shaped orbit, symbolizing the power of the Queen of the North. Though it was made using the pure power of the Aurora, Bethlehem does not usually use it in combat, and some even believe that it is more a symbol of her identity.
Queen Bethlehem! How nice to see you again!
Hello, Carleen. How have you been?
I've been doing my best as a protector of Lumopolis, per your instructions.
Although I'm still quite nostalgic about my time in Northland.
It seems you're doing perfectly well, Carleen.
So then, have you been keeping up with the new books?
Yes, the ones on legislation, on swordsmanship, on military tactics, and on leadership...
I'm sure they would be useful to you!
I'll have them ready for you to pick up in my room later this evening? How about it?

Name: Shaya Bethlehem
Nickname: Queen of the North
Birthday: January 1
Fighting Style: Winter Force, Aurora Blade
Her Majesty of Northland visited our Colossus in person! Now that's a celebrity, full of elegance, grace, beauty, and authority. I also heard that Her Majesty is Carleen's mentor of swordsmanship. Please forgive me for my bluntness. The lily-like girl with thin, frail arms sipping black tea in the reception room looks so young... Of course, I know that judging someone by their appearance is very impolite. I was just trying to pay compliments on Her Majesty's grace and beauty!
Carleen once told me that her mentor was a prophet who was highly skilled in swordsmanship and an elder worth respecting... Although I have heard that the queen is far older than she looks, I still can't match the elder Carleen described with this girl who looks one to two years younger than me...
Is that you, the one who holds the future—
As you can see, I have never ventured beyond Northland for the most part. For countless years, I have watched over this frozen continent and am accustomed to greeting the Aurora and the starry nights alone.
I did feel lonely at the beginning years. For I knew what awaited me was an immutable destiny and an inevitable future. But thanks to it, I could protect my people. Even if my attempts to change the future are futile, I gladly endure hardships—to fight till my last breath for the future of this frozen land.
I'm sure you must have heard a lot about fate. Since I was born, I have been an imperial princess who was eligible to succeed the throne. However, I don't like the way the nobles act. Look at that distant floating city, most of the nobles there care only about living a luxurious life. I can even feel that decadent aura from the nobles who were dispatched here to Northland. In fact, the education I received was full of praises sung for the history of Lumopolis and about its grand blueprint for the future. But I clearly understand that this has always been, and will always be the case. Even if I succeeded the throne, I would still be nothing but a puppet... By chance, I read some books on politics that were secretly stored in the intel room of the camp, which was when I realized that I needed both power and wisdom to protect Northland... I think it is time for me to take control of Northland's future.
That was a long time ago. There were four sisters. The first was "willingly" to become a knight in Lumopolis, and the second wedded a governor of Lumopolis in an arranged marriage. The third was disowned for her liaison with a foreigner. The fourth followed all arrangements and successfully ascended to the throne. Yes, I am that fourth.
I secretly imagined what it would be like to take the crown finally. But I cannot even explain how I feel now, except it's probably more burdensome than I had ever thought. It was never me holding power, but the power owned me.
Once upon a time, this land was not so peaceful. When I succeeded the throne, I didn't expect myself to be the Queen as it is now. I used to sit alone on the snowy field, bathing in the light of Aurora. That was when I would pray for the people of Northland, day after day, year after year, until I saw the vision from the Aurora and the perilous future of Northland. There, I decided to take the sword and protect Northland with my own strength. As for Lumopolis, which lives in its fantasy bubble, I hope they will wake up to reality after experiencing some hardships.
I have seen your future, and I believe in you. After all, Northland has great expectations for you.
Navigator, I found something that you might find useful.
Another peaceful day...
Have you ever considered what the future will be like?
Navigator, are you busy at the moment?
Although I am Queen of the North, I have no intention of maintaining such a lofty attitude here.
I can sense... A new source of power manifesting within me.
Do you remember the long sword that I often carry on my person?
Good morning. You ought to come see the sunrise.
The wind of awakening is blowing.
Morning, I've been expecting you.
A cup of tea to start a peaceful day...
Did you hear the birds chirping this morning?
Did you get swallowed up by your dream last night?
The morning goes by in the blink of an eye. Make the most of it.
"Ice crystals glistening brilliantly in the morning sun..."
It's a brand new day. What kind of life shall I experience today?
I believe an afternoon respite is in order, Navigator.
The day is halfway done. How is your work coming along?
Please answer me, the one I've been waiting for.
Navigator, what books have you been reading lately?
Excuse me. How good are you with a sword?
Nice weather outside.
Navigator, what kind of dreams do you have?
Good afternoon, my listener.
Half of today has passed us by. How do you feel?
Don't indulge in too much rest.
Even from atop a Colossus, the night sky is no different from the one above Northland...
How are your studies on monarchism coming along?
The night has come...
Come, let us step into the dark of night.
Have you gone to sleep yet, Navigator?
It's best to think at night.
You should get some rest.
The stars have risen as usual.
Answer me, observed one.
Bethlehem asked you to monitor Louise and Noah's studies, but you ended up getting "burned"...
Her Majesty Bethlehem invites you to read a biography with her on her day off. This seems to be her unique way of unwinding.
We've frozen our destiny in the rootless mountains. Perhaps change is coming...
Lumopolis is like the Northland without snow. Conservatism is like their snow mountains. It will be disastrous should there be an avalanche.
For the North.
Who is it that the Eclipsites call their mother?
There's a reason why Nikinis is so cold. You don't know what she has been through.
Although Carleen is a noble, she isn't arrogant. She was born for the real Lumopolis.
Tea from the south, sunlight in winter. If the world stays this way, perhaps even I will enjoy it.
Suspicion is our forever enemy. Even the Eclipsites come second to that.
It came from the past, yet is full of advanced technology. It holds many secrets...
Listener, let's spread hope through song.
What's a day like for a female singer? Perhaps wearing this outfit will help you understand. Hmm? You call this... cosplay? Well then, this means you're my fan, right?
An occasional setback, pay it no mind.
Another victory in the books.
Northland's band is in position.
The seasons have completed their cycle.
Deal it with ease.
Ice is my protection.
Ice is also the Blade of Aurora.
The Northland's ice is our friend.
Come, let us not waste time by spacing out. Sit before this piano, and we shall use music to converse about the future.
I've never seen a Colossus this perfect; it seems that... destiny has spoken.
Ever since the Colossus rose to the sky and looked down on the living, I knew the world had been changed.
Destiny has brought you many companions. You're safe until destiny leaves you. Don't worry for now.
In the future I see, the white night continues to dim. I hope I'm wrong.
Remember - the Aurora is our core. It will defeat the ultimate threat for us.
The Northland is my friend... and yours as well. Spring will come when winter ends.
You seem to be free now. Can you tell me about your past? How did you find this Colossus?
My residence in the Northland is called the Winter Palace. It's a palace built on the peak. The view there is just as mesmerizing.
Perhaps you're the person I've been waiting for, the one who will make it possible for this continent to have a future.
The situation now is vastly different from when I was in the Northland. Thankfully I can still handle it with ease.
This Colossus may not be the only one in this world. It's not alone, neither... are you.
Sometimes... I can hear the Colossus speak. It seems like he also has a desire to express himself.
Have you noticed that where melodies flow, even the most trivial, insignificant scenery starts glowing like a dazzling diamond in sunshine?
What makes a good song? An elegant melody, or fancy lyrics? Caelestite, it's all about the heart.
Each person's life is like a unique song. Oh? You want to know how my life's song sounds? Perhaps you can answer that for me.
Whether you break a guitar string, your piano is out of tune, or your drum is punctured, have faith that melodious music never dies.
Only music you play can awaken the sleeping Colossus. No, not just the Colossus... Hmmm, is it still too early to speak of this?
You detect sadness in my singing? It's often said that our emotions are reflected in our songs, and now I see that it is true... Shh, please keep this between us.
The songs of mischievous singers sound out across the empty snow field. Listen to their voices that melt even the snow.
Hmm? You're awake. I knew it. Gentle music is more effective at waking people up.
When night descends upon Northland, every family hums the same ballad...♪
Why are you still up? Fine, if you insist on being my late-night audience.
I'm the Northlord. Don't be surprised; destiny has led me to this Colossus so we could meet.
It's time to start the performance.
The Northland has the oldest etiquette. The ambassador from faraway lands must find it hard to get used to.
To prevail in battles far away, the commander must plan strategically. We must rely on our wisdom, for it is the only way for us to defeat the Eclipsites.
I'm not all-knowing nor all-mighty, but I do try my best to protect my people. I've always done so, and I will continue to do so. We must be determined in the face of the ultimate threat.
Let's head towards victory.
On a rare day off, Bethlehem stumbles upon the biography of a talented songstress. She soon gets lost in the pages of this book, becoming one with the singer, experiencing her rise to fame, her triumphs, and then the loss of her voice. "What if I were just like her?" It's a question for which Bethlehem has no answer. All she can do is imagine herself in the songstress's shoes, picking up a musical instrument and performing. She imagines having a passion for creation, she imagines inevitably losing her voice on the stage, she imagines life as the songstress, all while coming to terms with her own future.
Whale Converter (C)
(S at BT3, SS at MBT)
(SS at BT3)
+At BT3: Preemptive conversion is vital
+The most powerful Conversion effect in the game
+Decent attack buff
-Requires MBT to truly shine. A 4 turn CD is brutal even with BT3 preemptive.
-Outclassed by other converters in this niche, both in-element and in general.
Ah, poor Bethlehem... the game's first limited unit, released to much fanfare... only to be outsold by some dude named Spanish Boyfriend.
If Siobhan's lack of total selection is her weakness, then Bethlehem's lack of a good CD outside of MBT is hers. Still, select-tile conversion remains the single best ability in the game, and Bethlehem's set-up capacity is unrivaled.
This makes her absolutely core on many top-tier water teams, especially since even her BT3 has good timing with units like Barton and Raphael. The support buff, while nice, is definitely not what you're paying for; select tile is select tile. It'll be hard to find a mechanic more broken.
