About

Introduction

This wiki is dedicated to, Elthlead and Langrisser series of video games.

On this site, you will find information that pertains to the lore that surrounds the Elthlead world and helpful information for playing the games such as character stats, equipment, cheat codes and more.

Users who use this website should also be aware that venturing on any page outside of the Guide sections will be met with spoilers. Nothing will be done to hide said spoilers so venture at your own risk.

Goals

The Walls of Elthlead doesn't wish to supplant any other English Langrisser Website, specifically Langrisser.info, rather our desire is only for more English Langrisser resources. We fully expect Langrisser.info to remain the main English source. Think of the Walls of Elthlead merely as supplementary.

Please note this site is at its infancy, although we are striving to add info on a regular basis yet with the new upcoming releases like the Global Release of Langrisser Mobile or Langrisser I and II's remake we may end up behind current events.

Our primary goals are directed toward the Classic Series, Langrisser I-V and the Elthlead Trilogy. Then Langrisser RE:Incarnation, with the new games following.

If we ever get far enough we may perhaps add Millenium, but as that series had little connection in lore, it will remain on the back burner.

Naming Schemes

Names on this wiki will follow the Fan Translations of Langrisser instead of the Mobile Game's Global Release. These translation will include the following establish Fan-Translations:

  • Langrisser I PC
  • Langrisser II MD (If different from the DL Team, the DL Team's work will be used).
  • Der Langrisser
  • Langrisser IV
  • Crest of Gaia.

However, for Langrisser III's translations by Akira Dawn and Elf Shadow, Borgor's Langrisser V text translation, as well as Darkness Shadow Guyframe translations are not relied upon for names. Since these were either not finished or inserted into their respective games. These will not be defaulted to and this makes the names from these entries in the series more in flux.

Moreover, we will not simply default to how various official sources spell names

  • Which source do we use?
    • For example, Freya's name appears as Freya, Flaire, and Flea across official Langrisser III merchandise.
  • Sometimes said source seems way off the mark
    • Throne is spelled as Sone and Soan or Albert as Albart in some official sources
  • We will, however, strive to make such romanizations knowns.

So what does this mean?

This wiki for example, will use the Der Langrisser's Translation of Erwin instead of the Mobile's Elwin, Böser instead of Bozel, etc. This site will, however, use Emerick as seen in the Mobile Global Release instead of Akira Dawn's Langrisser III translation Emaillink. Even still expect to see the various accent marks on characters.

All that being said in the section of the wiki which are dedicated to Mobile Game, this wiki will use the Global release naming scheme.

Canon Policy

The Langrisser Series is known for its branching in Langrisser II and IV as well, its multiple endings for individual characters as well as for III-V a love point system for the chosen heroine. As such there are multiple options for the game.

This wiki in certain instances will make an assumption based on later entries and other material to make choices of canon. For example, while Der Langrisser has multiple paths, Langrisser II, which preceded it, showed a Light Path. Therefore the wiki will assume a Light Path with some variant as the "canon" path for each entry in this wiki.

This wiki also chooses to give a canon pairing of Diehärte and Freya and Lewin and Tiaris based in part on the stories presented in Langrisser III. Entries will in as much as possible seek to include information from each path and ending, even as a "canonical one" is chosen.

Langrisser Re: Incarnation is only semi canon, with some elements of the game will be considered canon but most being non canon. For example, the game acts as if Digos is a Descendant of Light as well as having the blood of Böser in his veins.

Considering Langrisser Mobile, this game is consider a side story, and only semi canon. For now the events in the game will be recognized as the next story segment in the Langrisser Universe. What this means is that in the Mobile game when a story element contradicted the lore establish in the original 5 game it will be considered an error and not a retcon.

We recognize that some of this will seem arbitrary, but hopefully, the reader can also recognize that they are free to disagree and our opinion, in the end, will not affect their enjoyment of the game's stories. Yet as noted previously, we are trying to help bridge connections in the series's lore and this we feel is a necessary part of that.

As such this wiki assumes as canonical

  • Light Path for Langrisser II
  • Extended Path for Langrisser III
  • Path C for Langrisser IV
  • Canon Pairing of Diehärte and Freya
  • Canon Pairing of Lewin and Tiaris

One final word on canon, when possible, this wiki will pull from supplementary sources such as the Novels, Guide Books, etc., but the games themselves will remain the final authority and outsides sources, however official, will only be used to supplement where possible and will be fully noted on this wiki.
