An Elder Worried for His Town
Bernd Lederer
Age: 65 / Occupation: Town Elder
Illustration: Yuugen
The elder of Firis's hometown of Ertona. He is quite wise, but his attitude usually suggests otherwise.

He is concerned with the state of the town, as their mining output decreases each year.

As a result, he has high expectations of Firis with her ability to find ores, while also feeling distress as he knows about her dreams.
Despite his position as town elder, Bernd supports Firis to fulfill her dreams. While appearing otherwise, he has a mischievous side as well, but trust in him among his people runs very deep.
