Fire Empress Stroheim (爆炎の魔女シュトルハイム)
Kuon Glamred Stroheim (久音＝グラムレッド＝シュトルハイム) is a major character in XBlaze Code: Embryo and XBlaze Lost: Memories. She is an apprentice Mage from Ishana who was assigned to track down the rogue members of the Ten Sages. She is Sechs's younger sister.
Kuon was revealed for BlazBlue Alternative: Dark War on January 13th, 2021.
Kuon is fair skinned young woman with strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes. Her hair falls to the middle of her back and it has a straight cut; her bangs cover her entire forehead and have two small side bangs that curl on either side. On the back of her head, she wears a red barrette with a Seithr Regulator placed on top. Her pigtails are threaded through part of the Seithr Regulator with a pink, red, and black ribbon tied around as well.
Kuon’s usual attire during the events of XBlaze Code: Embryo consists of a light-pink sweater that has a v-neck with dark red trim; the cuffs of the sweater share the same pattern. Under her sweater is a white blouse that is tied at the collar with a big red black and white ribbon. She wears a short, red pleated skirt with black lines near the end. Her shoes are brown loafers with a silver heel that are paired with dark red, thigh high socks with a black lace as a trim; near the top of them is a red strap with a silver decorative lily.
In XBlaze Lost: Memories, her usual outfit is the same except she doesn’t wear a seithr regulator and her pigtails are shorter.
At school she wears the standard female Hakuo North Academy School Uniform uniform: a white buttoned coat with a dark blue sailor styled collar. The collar is tied with a red and black ribbon with the school’s crest attached. She wears a short, dark blue pleated skirt with pink-colored thigh high tights. For her shoes, she wears reddish-brown loafers.
Kuon’s swimsuit is a string bikini; the color is mostly red with white strings, and the swimsuit has gold and black trim as well as small, gold buttons.
Befitting her magical preference, Kuon is short-tempered and fiery. Her explosive temper is so legendary that it earned her the moniker "Fire Empress Stroheim". Her temperament usually leads her to dive head first into some situations without thinking, especially if it involves protecting innocents. Kuon has a strong sense of justice and doing what she believes is the right thing; because of her inability to overlook the mistakes of others when it comes to doing the right thing, Kuon can often land herself in trouble. The face that Kuon puts on publicly is as someone who is self-sufficient and headstrong, but in private, her capability is so nearly the opposite that Elise von Klagen, Kuon's best friend, considers it adorable. Around Elise's eccentric behaviour, Kuon is easily flustered.
Kuon is not one to rely on her family's influence, instead wanting to be recognized by her peers and superiors by her own merit. Despite her reluctance to use her family's power, she loves them deeply, especially her mother. Her relationship with Sechs was strained since he joined the Ten Sages, but she continued to admire him until she discovered his plans for the Embryo. Even when faced with Sechs betrayal and his assassination of their father, Kuon struggled to accept that he had changed so much from the brother she grew up with.
Kuon often clashes with Mei Amanohokosaka over the latter's intense dislike of the Ten Sages. This rivalry eventually blossoms into a growing friendship between the two as they learn to appreciate one another's magical abilities as well as understand the tragedies that their two factions have put each other through.
Powers & Techniques
Despite being an apprentice, Kuon is an exceptionally talented Mage. She specializes in Fire magic, able to shoot fireballs and create large explosions. One such spell is the powerful Flame Lichtstrahl. Together with Elise, Kuon can use Soul Direction, in which Kuon casts a Fire spell inside a small ward Elise creates, focusing the blast into a high-powered laser.
Unlike the typical Mage, Kuon is adept in hand-to-hand combat, able to easily throw a man larger than her and likes to use kicks.
Additionally, Kuon has access the Sealed Spear: Izayoi. The Izayoi is capable of sealing an opponent's magic and trapping them in an inescapable barrier. However, using it even once will result in Kuon going blind. Kuon only resorts to using the Izayoi in the Kuon Route of XBlaze Code: Embryo.
