God Arc: Assault (older model/long-distance)



Karel has a very serious personality and prefer to work alone. He is hardly polite and is always gruff, even to those close to him.


Karel always complains about his mission rewards and is always on a look out for lucrative missions. During the time that the Protagonist is left without a God Arc in the Burst storyline, he even goes as far as to tell them to rest while he takes the missions they would have gotten. A self-admitted mercenary, he tends to look out more for himself than he would for others.

Karel states at one point that he is excellent at finding trinkets and items on the field. He also has a small pan of arrogance, especially towards newcomers to the God Eaters' ranks, causing people like the then-freshly-accepted Kota to voice their dislike for him.

He is inferred to have bad money-spending habits, which more often than not gets his superiors on his case.



Karel is young man with a spiky blonde hair and blue eyes. He wears a dark gray formal attire with a yellow-orange dress shirt while leaving his chest open, and a brown shoes.


Karel is a handsome young man with a light blonde hair and reddish brown eyes. He wears a pinkish white dress shirt with black necktie, a rusted blue jeans and black boots.
