Rusty Hearts previews Frantz
Rusty Hearts has released a preview for its third character today: Frantz, Rusty Hearts’ leader.
Frantz is a human-vampire hybrid, who halted the full transformation to vampire with his own will, and now seeks to reverse his decision to bite his fiance, Amelia. Frantz can use a sword, a short-range weapon that attacks quickly and lets Frantz use some of his dark magic; or he can use a massive axe, slower but with a broader range and the ability to throw the weapon at his enemies.
Rusty Hearts is published by Perfect World Entertainment, which also publishes Forsaken World and Battle of the Immortals.
Here we want to introduce Frantz – the leader of the Rusty Hearts team. Frantz is a human-vampire hybrid with a tragic past. Read on to learn more about his history, weapons, and fighting style.
Bio: A gloomy man from the start, Frantz Kruger’s life took a turn for the worse when he was bitten by a vampire. Unable to resist the temptation, he bit just one person – his fiancé
Amelia after she was involved in a tragic and life-threatening accident. Frantz bit her only to save her life, but at the same time doomed her to the life of a vampire.
At the time of the incident, Frantz was only a half-human, half-vampire hybrid, and instead of letting the blood complete his transformation, Frantz sealed the blood inside of him and used the force of his own will to halt the process. He now exists as a creature trapped in limbo between human and monstrosity. As a side-effect of his condition, he suffers from chronic anemia and insomnia, giving him and ashen appearance and a sullen, sarcastic disposition.
Soon after, Amelia mysteriously vanishes leaving Frantz behind. His only mission in life has been to return the blood that he took from his fiancé, and give her the chance to lead a normal human life once again – even if it means the end of his own.
Until now his efforts have been fruitless, but deep inside Curtis Castle, Frantz catches a glimpse of his long-lost fiancé and wonders if his search is finally over.
In this day and age, every young gentleman is expected to know something of swordplay. In Frantz’s hands, however, the classic weapon becomes a deadly blur of razor-sharp steel. Lacking in range, using this weapon requires Frantz to be quick on his feet. In battle, he supplements his swordsmanship with dark magic granted by his vampiric blood.
When fighting an uncivilized enemy, sometimes a civilized weapon just won’t get the job done. For this reason, Frantz has trained with massive axes that split his monstrous opponents in two with single strokes. Though not as fast as his sword, Frantz’s axe makes up the difference with the raw power and range of his attacks. He also employs some rather unorthodox techniques in which he throws the colossal weapon toward his foes like other men would throw darts.
