A mysterious old beast, who has lived centuries. With ties to the "Night Blade", he operates by the Princess's side. Speaking of the princess, she has recently taken a somewhat useless high school student under her wing, leaving the beast perplexed. All the while, Wald and his comrades are under attack from a mysterious organization, Amnesia. "The Hollow Night is upon us, and we will settle this", says a high ranking member of said organization. In hopes that he may protect his master, Wald decides to head into the belly of the lion's den, alone. Fulfilling his promise to Linne's brother, Kuon.
Battles are cruel...? The words of pansies with no strength.
Though cursed with possibly the worst ground movement to ever grace a 2D fighter, Waldstein still gets surprising mobility through the universal Assault mechanic, and is able to more than make up for his lack of speed with the absurd range of his normals. Waldstein is more than capable of switching between halfscreen pressure, grappler, and zoning through his normals as the situation dictates, though he still has issues with more dedicated long-range characters such as Merkava and Vatista.
