You can also check out information about the new main characters (along with pictures) below.
Vita: Detective Asmis Asmis is the new main character for the Vita faction. If she seems familiar, she’s actually a returning minor character from the first season of Sword Girls. She was a student at Vita Public School and a member of the Secret Service Detective Agency, but in her investigations, she learned too much. She was savagely beaten by Agent Fourteen; someone she thought was a fellow detective. Asmis survived, but the wound on her head was cursed to never heal. The Vita Principal, Treanna, managed to help with the wound, but she needs to find a way to lift the curse while prying into forbidden knowledge.
Academy: Linus Falco When Linia took control of the Academy at the end of Season 1, she started to target witches for enrollment. Linus Falco is one of these new students, and the new main character for the Academy. Witches are usually feared and shunned, so the Academy’s new policy is welcome change. However, Linia isn’t someone to be trusted, and her actions certainly serve some darker purpose. When Linus discovers Linia’s true motive, can she really stand up to the leader of the Academy herself?
Crux: Crux Knight Rose Rose Pacifica is another witch, as well as a sister to Cinia, the main Academy character of the first season, but her ties to the Academy were cut a long time ago. When Linia, her eldest sister, discovered Rose was a witch, she was exiled from the family and forced to take up a life of wandering. In the weeks since the end of Season 1, Rose found a girl in the forest who lost her memory and decided to protect her. Together, Rose and the girl, who she called Veltier, joined the Crux Knights. While Crux abhors witches, who would ever suspect that a witch would be hiding among their own?
Darklore: Helena K Sink Darklore is more than just vampires, witches, and other strange beings; it is a term for anyone that Crux opposes. In the last season, the GS, a group of humans opposed to the Crux Goddess of Miracles, executing a devastating attack on Crux territory and setting the city ablaze. This group has extended an offer of alliance to another group opposed to Crux. Helena K Sink leads the Aletheians, a faith that worships the God of Truth and opposes the Goddess of Miracles. Helena herself is said to hear the voice of God, and under her leadership, the Aletheians have been working hard to spread their beliefs and recruit more faithful to the cause.
