  • The Chief of Transportation in the Illumina Federation who is the conductor of the train called Other End. His everyday antics are so over the top, it's as if he's performing on stage. He tends to be alienated by others and is somewhat of a weirdo.

    Name: Charon

    Nickname: The Acheron Ferryman

    Gender: Male

    Height: 5'11"

    Birthday: February 2

  • His Experiences

    I have occasionally seen a train on the Colossus since that superior arrived... I know it sounds strange, so let me explain. The thing is, that train is Charon's "partner", Other End. Although Other End is huge and looks very cumbersome, it is in fact extremely adorable lively, and stays by Charon's side every day like a loyal dog wagging its tail. I was initially a little skeptical when I heard rumors that Charon hangs out with Other End every day. Now I know that it is true.

    Don't let Charon's dashing gentlemanly appearance fool you. He is a natural actor who can deceive anyone who lets their guard down around him. However, if he can be more honest with others, he should be quite popular with the ladies since he is a handsome guy with a cute dog by his side—only if he is more honest and trustworthy.

    —Vice

    His Story (I)

    Are you the one in charge of this Colossus? Excellent! Let me introduce myself: I am the ferryman of evil spirits, the admirer of dreams, the artist of the stage, and the conductor of the train of the dead—Charon!

    I like to listen to rock music at the maximum volume so that my friend, Other End, can listen to it too as it speeds through dark tunnels and takes me away from this noisy world. I don't have to think or ask about anything when I am with Other End. It feels like we can travel through time, to the time when we traveled around the continent before the crisis and the time when I researched ancient technology with my friends... Of course! It's the same now. We always bask in the sun on to the lawn outside Undercity when we're tired and go for a drive when we wake up. Occasionally, unexpected animal friends would visit our home to enjoy food and wine with us!

    Need not be envious! From today on, you'll also be qualified to... watch from the sidelines! Haha!

    His Story (II)

    Do you think I stand out from my surroundings? No, of course not! I'm a talented performer who can adapt to any stage! If you think time has left its mark on me, I can tell you that everything you see is just an act... Yes, I am one of the last of my ancient bloodline and a relic that doesn't belong to this era. My partner is a train from hell called Other End. It loves to reveal its savage fangs and is irritable and untamable. Initially, it was just a toy that a father brought home on a whim to appease his naughty young son, but the young boy loved it far more than anyone could imagine. He continued to study ancient books and learned about the possibilities presented by ancient technology. He wanted one of the large trains recorded in ancient books, and it would be best if it could speak, dance, sing, and play gateball. Other End was the fruit of his subsequent efforts. They cherished and accompanied each other, but fate never stops playing pranks and enjoys manipulating people...

    So? What do you think of my script? Isn't it exciting!

    His Story (III)

    Are you questioning the spirituality of my partner, Other End?! I won't permit such thoughts to appear in such a sacred place like this... I mean next to my only partner, even if you are the leader of the Colossus!

    What's the meaning of your sympathetic gaze? Handsome train conductors like me are all peerless and independent! When have you ever seen a ferryman with a large group of companions in myths and legends?

    What? You want to go on a ride with me on Other End? I'll naturally agree since you're asking so sincerely! This is my gift to you, so don't laugh!

    His Story (IV)

    Do you want to hear about the awakening of Other End? One time, I traveled the continent with my partner and learned a lot about the world. However, my father criticized me a lot after I returned to Old Town. My relationship with my family, who followed the old traditions of nobles, became estranged after that. My father left my mother and me after the Darkover because of my stubbornness. When my mother and I were about to be mobbed by the Eclipsites, Other End gained self-consciousness and saved us, but my mother still died of serious injuries in the end... Therefore, I always lose control of my abilities whenever I think about anything related to my family.

    Why am I suddenly so serious? You can just assume that I'm reading a script...

  • You can relax because I'm currently protecting this ancient Colossus.

    My dear Navigator!

    Hello, captain of the Colossus!

    When a new dawn breaks, it's time to rise and shine, my friend!

    What a gorgeous morning!

    My dearest friend, would you be willing to...

    Another marvelous morning!

    The light has pierced the veil of the night to brighten the magnificent stage!

    Circuits normal, fuel full, personnel in position.

    Good morning, my dearest friend and supporter!

    Sleeping in on a drowsy morning always brings the most bizarre dreams.

    The morning is just as beautiful on a day full of work as on a day full of rest!

    Act 1, Scene 1!

    Did you happen to see the posters I placed throughout the Bridge?

    Another beautiful day.

    Greetings, my dearest friend.

    Attention, please!

    What's this? The Umbraton tabloids even have a section dedicated to theater reviews?

    That late night landscape—it always steals my gaze, fixing my eyes to the starry sky...

    Gah... Gah...

    It's show time now!

    It is late...

    The sun! The night! Are blessings of the divine!

    Inspiration peaks in the depth of night!

    Good night, my friend.

    I do so love to rewatch my films in the evening.

    Why does inspiration elude me so...?

    "Goodnight, my darling youth."

    Hey! You shouldn't be the one to say goodnight to me!

    Hey! How was it? This final show was awesome, right?

  • Food Tales: Courtroom

      Our destiny is tied with Illumina. We've been here twice, and it's now the place we call home for all of eternity.

      Pursuit is nothing but the manifestation of one's self-consciousness. Something that is imposed is not necessarily the truth.

      Splendor—Illumina!

      We, who have returned from hell, shall face our fears head-on.

      I dare not comment on her, as I did lose... But if it's about how to operate a train...

      To see through everything and embark on a lonely road without hesitation—that is what a born leader is like.

      A lonely stage, a free life, and a rock n' roll train journey. These are the things I love!

      There's no room for tasteless lunatics in an artist's life.

      Just like me and Other End, this Colossus is your partner, right?

      Humph... The loneliness of the soul and true art are things that few can understand. All artists are lonely, and I don't work well with others...

      Argh, I'm so busy. Wanna watch a musical? Invited a lot of people? Really? In that case, I'll make an exception and perform again—

      Someone complained about the noises we're making? Who's complaining that my old buddy is noisy? Surely it must be a plebian with poor taste...

      Look, I just have to shout "Feel the terror of the train from hell!" and my old buddy will rush out. Do you want to see it?

      Peace will continue to elude me forever. It is an endless curse and a carnival of the lonely...

      Focus! This is my grandest performance! Charon, Other End, and countless souls who thirst for a show full of life have returned from hell!

      Please wait for a moment... Here are your tea and snacks. Dear audience, please return to your seats!

      You fled alone so quickly and so far. Why didn't you take me with you? You know I'll always be on your side no matter what you are or what you do...

      The days that I spent with the Grand Marshal were the happiest days of my life, and I felt like I had been redeemed... Now that I've met you, the script of destiny is complete!

      All I need is Other End. My other friends... I can do without.

      People will always leave me for different reasons, getting off when they reach the stop of their destination...

      Other End seems to like you a lot. In that case, I'll reserve a spot for you on stage!

      I only wear this gorgeous, custom-tailored evening wear for the most formal, prestigious occasions when I'm being an actor. Of course, there are exceptions, like right now.

      Which of my projects shall we watch today? Actually, the choice is hard so... let's watch them all!

      You have quite a few stories to tell... Navigator, let's turn your life story into a play! We can ride the Other End and perform it all around the world!

      "The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about..." What's survival to an artist except to avoid the terrible indignity of popular indifference?

      A talented artist can make something marvelous out of the most ordinary script. Don't believe me? Very well, I'll show you.

      Navigator, viewer who understands me like no other, it's great that you are here! Now let's review the filmography of the performing arts genius, Charon the Acheron Ferryman!

    • Welcoming Dialogs on the Main Screen

      The good and the sinister can be equally artistic. Which do you prefer today?

      Costume, makeup, presentation? Perfect! Lights? We don't need lights when we have the most wonderful natural morning sun!

      Good evening my friend! Please note, the cameraman is still recording.

      Come on then! Let yourself fall into this silent, thick night, and you'll surely get the inspiration you need.

    • Obtain an Aurorian

    • Aurorian Trivia II

      I'll never forget my mother's face behind the window... I can watch her forever without noticing time passing...

    • Aurorian Trivia III

      My family used to spoil me, but they didn't understand back then that Other End was also family to me. The decision made at that difficult time was fate conspiring against us...

    • The Captain's Entrance

      Spotlights on me! The protagonist takes the stage!

  • Heated Performance

    Heated Performance

    A vampire descends in the darkness, ferrying souls across a sea of fire. Charon personally designed this stunning black and red performance outfit, which simultaneously exudes a classic, romantic, peculiar, and alluring air for this performance alone! He, of course, is the director, the writer, and the star, so please raise your glasses and applaud as the grand spectacle begins!

    Born to Act

    Born to Act

    A magnificent stage outfit that gives off an elegant air of ancient nobility. It looks quite out of place with today's fashion, but that is because Charon designed his new costume to be this way. Extravagant as it may be, it quickly grabs the audience's attention whenever Charon stands before the camera, granting him the opportunity to showcase his unforgettably impressive acting skills at their full potential. In those moments, it can be said that both Charon and his costume were made for acting.

  • Class

    Detonator (S)

    Crowd Control (B)

    Reset Converter (C)

    Overall

    S

    Advantages

    +Relatively high skill damage nuke

    +Sacrifices relatively few stats for additional conversion value (reset)

    +Diagonal attack

    +Both knockback and pull means extreme versatility in controlling enemy movement (again, at relatively little sacrifice)

    Disadvantages

    -The +10% damage effect on equipment is rather negligible (cannot pick up normal multipliers)

    -Mostly adds a bunch of relatively weak niche uses such as resets or knockback/pull onto an otherwise solid kit

    Explanation

    Despite being "old" by today's standards, resets/knockback/pulls don't come up very often, when they do come up, they can be strategy warping. Stapling that onto a solid Detonator chassis means "free" access to those effects, making Charon very powerful.

    However, he is still mostly carried by his "only" above-average Detonator core, making him more vulnerable to getting out-scaled than many high tier characters. Still an extremely strong and versatile DPS type that is valuable as the mainstay of any Fire team.
