  Veloce Visrin is a young sorceress from a family of renowned and master practitioners of sorcery. As a Visrin, she was secretly exempted from the Prohibition by the King of Kronzel hoping she would serve as a trump card should Kronzel be forced to war.

However, she soon leaves Kronzel under the guise of a bodyguard to two of her companions of nobility, namely Keritzel Edelez and Weirin Lin.

Appearance

Veloce possesses a slim physique, long white hair and striking blue-green eyes.

Veloce's outfit has transitioned four times over the course of the series' time. Currently, she dons a white loose turtleneck and white trousers along with a pair of shoes. She also wears a dark green jacket, lapels trimmed with golden yellow, and the collar fur-coated. She has a sash tied around her waist where two of her swords can be seen.

Her accessories include a family heirloom in a form of a necklace and a green ribbon she uses to tie her hair with. Additionally, she carries a pink floral pouch that holds a bottle of alcohol. At times, she mixes her drink with minced petals of Lacrima to subdue demonic presences her soul is infected with.

Personality

Veloce appears to be socially withdrawn and lonely due to Vocruen's exile, which caused her to live in isolation for over four years. She is mostly reserved and aloof, though she is not short of showing kindness to people who deserve it nor is she short of lecturing them, sometimes to the point of goading, when she sees fit.

She also finds amusement in teasing, most of which is aimed at Weirin and, depending on the circumstance, tricking people to react accordingly to her whims. She enjoys reading and drinking.

During her younger years, Veloce was more compassionate and encouraging. Although even since then, she has harbored some form of pessimism towards herself, especially with regards to her being a Visrin. After Vocruen is forced to leave, she becomes more of a cynic than a pessimist.

History

Veloce comes from a family of highly respected sorcerers, the Visrins, historically dubbed as Goddesses of Sorcery.

Prior to Vocruen's exile and the Prohibition, Veloce used to live a considerably peaceful and content life with her guardian and servant Vocruen, and later on, Meron. Highly talented with a wide range of magic even as a toddler, she spent most of her earlier years mastering the arts of free-form magic and eventually served as Meron's mentor.

As a child, Veloce spent most of her time indoors, usually reading and observing people from a window. She was happy enough to have Vocruen by her side and seems to find no problem with the lack of outside communication. She enjoys the music Vocruen would play for her on his flute.

Little is known about her parents other than their reputation in sorcery. Her mother, Auresque, however, is infamous for being the most prestigious of the Visrins so far. It is revealed that Auresque had died of childbirth and her father had run away, leaving Veloce under Vocruen's care from her infancy up to her formative years.

Powers & Abilities

Despite being a Carciphona, Veloce's case is unique due to her Visrin lineage, in which she is able to live longer than the average Carciphona, who suffer and die at a very young age. Veloce is able to live comfortably due to the necklace passed down to her by her mother, which was passed down to Auresque from her predecessor and so on.

Veloce is extremely skilled in terms of sorcery and swordsmanship. So far, she has displayed impressive control over demonic and elemental magic, capable of destroying a piece of Hiraeth single-handedly and restraining even a beast-human chieftain by effortlessly seizing control of their own magic and turning the elements against them. Veloce is also shown to be adept with the sword, though perhaps not as skilled as Blackbird, she is proficient enough that she is able to best the royal guard of the King of Kronzel, and win against a good number of beast-human guards in Arenscura.

Additionally, she has shown to be highly intuitive, having a keen sense of her surroundings which enables her to detect the presence of both people and spirits, and navigate through a dimensional rift.

Equipment

During combat, Veloce usually wields an estoc, a sword given to her by Blackbird from their second encounter in Kronzel. Her pendant also seems to have a defensive function, as seen from Veloce's confrontation with Kathryn. After leaving for Medrisen, Veloce now seems to have two estocs, each differently stylized from the other.

Relationships

Blackbird

Veloce's relationship with Blackbird is complicated at best, as Blackbird is assigned to assassinate her yet skirts around by leaving Veloce injured, but never fatal enough to kill her. Veloce suspects that the reason Blackbird is fooling her client is due to the impression that Veloce's death would not serve any advantage to the assassin. Additionally, Blackbird seems determined to bring out a more assertive trait in Veloce, even pushing her to take back control of her own life. Aware that Blackbird can see right through her, Veloce is often cautious around her but blunt whenever she demands that Blackbird explain her motives. Later on, Veloce claims that she highly thought of Blackbird, and adds that she'd rather have Blackbird's honesty than her rogue chivalry.

Keritzel Edeus

Veloce finds Keri's honesty and overall kindness admirable, though she warns him that he will get hurt should he continue to be careless around the people he shares his goodwill with. She trusts Keri enough to confide in him and cares about him, serving as his mentor every now and then and protecting him from harm when she can.

Weirin Lin

Though Veloce and Weirin often get into arguments with each other, Veloce actually appreciates Weirin's intentions and perspective of things. Furthermore, Veloce often patronizes her to show Weirin a different side to an argument or perspective on things. Veloce later admits that she is grateful for Weirin giving her a voice of reason and keeping her in line when her judgement becomes distorted.

Meron Lantgres

Veloce strongly resents Meron that she has no restraint when criticizing and hurting Meron. This awful treatment is rooted from the fact that it was Meron's fault that Vocruen was exiled. For this reason, Veloce calls her out on her betrayal and tells Meron that she would never forgive her. During one of their fights, where Meron was unwilling to make any offensive moves, Veloce corners her and almost delivers the final blow had Blackbird not intervened. Though it is unknown if Veloce could actually bring herself to kill Meron since Veloce saves her later from a frontal attack from a demon-infused Hiraeth. She even defends Meron from trouble when they arrive in Arenscura and gives Keri and his company an idea how to lift her mood in later events. What's more, after Meron is fatally wounded by Blackbird, she demands that Blackbird explain herself and orders Keri's group to keep Meron alive. Once Blackbird has been dealt with, Veloce goes as far as expending her own soul to completely heal Meron, thus saving her from the brink of death.

Desair Rehett

Veloce initially finds Desair incompetent in his duties as Arenscura's General which led her to consistently harass him by pointing out several holes in his stratagem against the Enfelids. Soon after, she shares her frank criticisms and disapproval on Desair's management of the first Enfelid breach and assassination attempt. After Veloce exposes Desair's real motives, she sarcastically tells him that if it weren't for his poor excuses and blatant lies, she wouldn't have figured out anything at all.

Vocruen

Vocruen is Veloce's servant and once guardian. With no one else to look after her, Vocruen took it upon himself to raise her. Meron claims that he wants nothing more than to make Veloce happy and protect her. Veloce, in return, cares deeply for him, and admits that she loves him though not in the romantic sense. When Vocruen was forced to leave, it left Veloce terribly devastated, causing her to grow more reclusive and distrustful of people.

Auresque Visrin

Because Auresque died shortly after Veloce was born, Veloce shares no memory of her. Although, Veloce dislikes being compared to her and wishes to undo her predecessors' faults.
