Character Description: Folken Fanel

Folken is revealed to be Van's older brother and the original heir to Fanelia. He, like Van, is half Draconian and thus he also has angelic wings. After he failed to kill a dragon, he lost an arm to the beast and was later picked up by the Zaibach, who nursed him back to health under Dornkirk's instructions and fitted him with a mechanical arm.

He originally joined the empire in hopes of realizing Zaibach's ideals of a world free of war, but is later disillusioned and defects. His wings turn black, a portent that his life is coming to an end, as it does when he travels back to Zaibach to confront Dornkirk. Although Draconians have a long lifespan, Dornkirk's experiments have taken their toll. Folken finally dies when the tip of his sword breaks off (just as he cuts Dornkirk almost in half, the blade strikes the platform they are on) and strikes him in the heart, then falls painfully to his doom.
