Wallpaper of Erine Kori-Odan, Enzo Kori-Odan's young wife, hero of the game. Erine's wallpaper

At last she is unveiled !!!

Erine is Enzo's wife. They will travel round the world together to gather their Aurionic legacy.

This character has undergone graphic evolution from 2003 to 2014 as seen in the detailed images below.

Evolution of Erine's appearance from 2003 to 2014

Heroine's development course from 2003 to 2014: In 2003, she was a victim heroine. She was very passive and inactive in the game. She was really a princess who is saved; not much different from Cinderella or Snow White. In 2014, she is a companion, a wife who goes round the world with her husband and lives out the adventure with him. More than just a support, she becomes a real partner. Course retracing her evolution
  • 2003 (victim heroine): It was the story of Cinderella or Snow White where a young girl meets the hero and he saves her. Their story was not granted since they had to fall in love gradually during their journey. This version of Erine was almost mute in the game.
  • 2011 (the queen to save): The story has changed. The love story now begins straightaway. We wanted to do away with classic and timid love stories where feelings develop crescendo. Now, Erine is a queen who goes through trails with her King and actively supports him. This is illustrated through game phases on marriage rituals. But she was not supposed to travel with him. So she remained the queen to save, not very much different from the 2003 version.
  • From 2013 till today (the mighty woman alongside the mighty man): Erine plays a more active role than in 2011. She travels with Enzo, protects him and helps him to overcome many trials through combats and enigmas. Henceforth, the value of her support is gaining magnitude in psychological and emotional domains. More than someone who supports, she becomes a partner.

Details on her equipment '' Moyoni Ukuta ''

'' Moyoni Ukuta '' means '' The wall of the heart ''. It is an aurionic shield which can absorb part of physical and magical damages.

The white cords that go across her uniform represent a cable aurionite network. The gold colour harness enables her to effect aurionite reloads and to transmit them. Explanations on accessories of Moyoni Ukuta
  • White ropes: They connect the chest's suit to the aurionite loin.

  • Red strings running accross her equipment: They are cable aurionite networks.
  • Aurionite loin: It is equipped with interchangeable aurionites.

Symbolic gear

Its appellation, '' wall of the heart ''is derived from the symbolic according to which queens must protect the kings they love and power is multiplied depending on the love they have. This '' wall '' is two-way:

  • External protection: It is a shield, a barrier from external attachs.
  • Internal protection: It protects the king from himself by channelling him to avoid stress or nerve-wrecking.

We hope you have enjoyed it. Please stay tuned for more news.

Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is an incredibly interesting game...The closest comparisons I can make are the very different games Dust: An Elysian Tail and Dusty Revenge, who all have a similar flow to their combat.
