Sirens:



Observer

Among the Sirens is Observer, whose work involves her namesake: to observe those who are able to connect and interface with the history and lore of the naval vessels. She is rarely ever seen partaking in any matters of the world. She holds a twisted view towards the humans and Kansen that can only be explained as being eerie and complex, which are reflected by her menacing weaponry. What happens after her observation this time is unknown...

*Observer is an Enemy AI only and can also appear in photo mode.

Editor

Roon

Roon was spending her days happily at the Iron Blood Academy. She's very talented, so much that she can stop a rigging with her bare hands.

It was a comfortable, peaceful time. Yet, Roon was starting to get bored of this...

After the Sirens had attacked, her innate desire to fight was awakened within her. Someone had even noticed this trait, and was keeping an eye on it–

Who will end up staring down the barrel of Roon's gun?

Full-Time Secretary Ship/Battle Support Ships: Graf Zepplin, Deutschland, and Admiral Graf Spee

Le Malin

The Royal Navy decided it would host a new Joint Military Exercise, using the Cubes.

Going with the flow of things, Le Malin participated in the exercise as a representative of the Vichya Dominion. That is where she encountered Essex.

The event was a challenge to see how many things could be made using the Cubes. Since it calls for skills outside of battle, Le Malin decided to create ■■■. The ocean arena was both surprised and excited.

Although the event was expected to reach the end smoothly, the Sirens appeared and targeted everyone!

What does fate have in store for Le Malin?

Full-Time Secretary Ship/Battle Support Ships: Essex, Baltimore, and Centaur

Sirius

Sirius and London were given the task of returning the Cubes that the Royal Navy had borrowed from the Sakura Empire.

However, while en route, the Sirens attacked. They announced that they were taking the Cubes, and the Sakura Empire began handling damage control.

Sirius and London was the pair chosen for this task. In order to defend the Cubes, they were dispatched to the Sakura Empire.

At the scene, both the Eagle Union and Iron Blood had come to stand against the Siren's scheme.

Will the Kansen be able to unite to protect the Cubes from the Sirens?

Full-Time Secretary Ship/Battle Support Ships: London, Alabama, and Azuma

About Eagle Union:

A democratic federation of states situated on a new continent, which honors science and freedom. They hold an overwhelming manufacturing and scientific force, and they possess the most powerful aerial weaponry of the nations.

They have a culture of valuing freedom and respecting an individual's characteristics and strengths, and their weaponry fully utilizes their unique scientific technology.

They continually roll out equipment and tactics fitting the current state of war while fighting, using unmanned pilot modules, wireless modules, and battle assistance modules, and they display a battle style that is harmonious and diverse, much like natural adaptation.



San Diego

San Diego's naval history within Eagle Union places her next to Enterprise in terms of accomplishments, but... she has a knack of doing whatever she pleases, and often takes action in the most unexpected way, which surprises many around her. Oddly enough, even if she takes things easy, she seems to arrive at great results so often that she's referred to as a "smart idiot" sometimes. Whether there's merit to that remains to be seen. Because of her nature, her actions during the Joint Military Exercise will surely cause quite a stir.

Helena

Helena is St. Louis' younger sister, and excels in offering support, which comes from her self-sacrificing nature. When she first joined, she wasn't very confident about herself, but her proficiency with using SG radars brought results, which led to many relying on her for help. It's no surprise that she's participating in the Joint Military Exercise as support. She is looking forward to the event, and is also hoping to get a chance to be with her older sister and members from the other nations.

Yorktown

A very kind and gentle lady. As Enterprise's older sister, she holds an incredible power, but she doesn't take on many missions as she would rather watch her juniors grow from them. She decides to join the Joint Military Exercise as support so that she can get a chance to see her siblings participate in this large-scale event. But, she's also attending as a member of the Eagle Union so that if something dire happens, she would be ready for battle.

Check out some of the playable ship profiles below!

Enterprise

As the strongest aircraft carrier in the Eagle Union, she is known for the many battles she has won against enemies both on the ocean and in the sky. Everyone knows how powerful she is, which makes her a fantastic representative of the Eagle Union in the Joint Military Exercise. She will sacrifice herself for her allies and constantly seeks new rivals. As she has sensed something amiss during the Joint Military Exercise, she has begun investigating what is really going on behind the scenes. This has caused her bond with a certain someone to deepen over the course of this exercise.

Laffey

A member of Eagle Union. She speaks in a lethargic fashion, and is often found with a sleepy expression on her face. Most of the time, she's quiet like some small animal, but she has a very strong will, and will not let anyone get away with bringing harm to her friends. Her battle prowess is also quite impressive, and this led to the invitation for her to attend the Joint Military Exercise. She decides to participate, although reluctantly.

Fans can also find profiles for the Iron Blood Support Ships below:

Admiral Hipper

An elite of the Iron Blood, and older sister to Prinz Eugen. She's similar, yet distinctly different from Prinz Eugen in that she acts irritated in front of those that interest her... a typical tsundere. Hipper doesn't enjoy that Eugen knows this facet of her so well, but that doesn't mean they don't get along. Hipper was invited to the Joint Military Exercise as support. At first glance, it seems like she didn't want to participate, but in truth, she's excited to meet Eugen and the others.

U-81

The Iron Blood's energetic and rambunctious submarine. She loves to play tag and acts like a child, but her prowess in battle has brought her along to many missions. She joins the Joint Military Exercise with mixed feelings. On one hand, she's worried she won't be able to play like she usually does. On the other hand, she's hoping that she'll find friends who will join her in her game of tag. A certain someone has asked U-81 to buy something, but it looks like she forgot about it already.

About the Iron Blood:

A military empire located in the middle of the Eurora continent, in which an aristocratic council takes on administrative duties.

Many excellent scientists are enlisted, and they've focused on the development of Siren technology. As a result, they outclass other nations in terms of AI controlled tech and biotechnology.

Their rigging, a concentration of their technology, are autonomous units mimicking living creatures. Though they can't speak, they have self-awareness, and are connected to their ship's consciousness.

Z23

A member of the Iron Blood whose nickname is "Zed." She's always looking for ways to improve herself, and she's also passionate about research. She's very critical of herself and others, but will always give praise to those who she deems as worthy. She's often found acting as a commander in battle. She was chosen to represent the Iron Blood in the Joint Military Exercise by her peers. She's doing her very best to rise to the occasion and lead her friends to victory.

Bismarck

Bismarck is the leader of the Iron Blood fleet, but she disappeared from the frontline after the official battle against Hood and Rodney of the Royal Navy. She's kept a watchful eye on the Sirens since they appeared, and was somehow able to gain access to the Siren's technology. She's calm and generally keeps to herself, so some mistake her as being cold-blooded, but, on the contrary, she is very passionate. She didn't want the Iron Blood to get involved with the Joint Military Exercise, but Kaga and Bismarck's younger sister convinced her to take part. What Bismarck will experience from the event is yet to be understood...

Prinz Eugen

An Iron Blood elite who knows her way around the advanced technology that her nation has researched. Her aura is seen as mature and alluring. Outside of missions, she is very free willed, making it hard to predict what she may be thinking in any moment. As soon as she engages in battle, however, she annihilates without mercy. It's hard to know why she thinks the way she does. Her older sister, Admiral Hipper, is always on her case. She joins the Joint Military Exercise to oversee Z23 and to ensure that their place in the world will not be marred by whatever is to come.
