Chalcedony Akerman (カルセドニー・アーカム Karusedonii Aakamu?, "Calcedny Arcome") is an antagonist in Tales of Hearts who was later reintroduced as a playable character in Tales of Hearts R. He is the commanding officer of the Thirteenth Platoon of the Imperial Order of Crystal Knights, a force organized by the Valentin faith.


Chalcedony first appears in the Twilight Forest, saving the party from a surrounding horde of wolves. Later on, it is revealed that the church is attempting to uncover the source of recent despir outbreaks. When it is clear that Kohaku Hearts Spiria core shards are the connection, he is tasked with gathering them. At this point, he takes an antagonistic role against the party, developing a rivalry with Kor Meteor.

Appearance and Personality[]

Chalcedony has short blonde hair and blue eyes. He wears a grey shirt over green pants, which are tucked into black boots. His hands are covered in black gloves that reach the elbows, and held together by belted straps. He also wears a set of armor that covers his shins. As a knight, Chalcedony respects those that are just and fair, and hates cowardly acts, especially if they are coming from his own comerades.

Chalcedony uses the Soma Wahrheit (バルハイト Baruhaito?), whose vessel is a breastplate cropped up to the chest. Once activated, the Soma conjures wings made of blue flames, which he can use to fly. In addition, Chalcedony's weapon conjures in the form of a saber.

In the original game, Chalcedony is fought as a boss character, allowing him to fly around the area. He possesses six strike artes, which correlate with his flight mechanics, as well as a Combination Blaster, Youshou Ten'ouzan.

In Tales of Hearts R, he is reintroduced as a playable character. Three of his original strike artes are replaced with a whole plethora of other artes, leveling the playing field with the other party members. He is also given the ability to cast Will artes that are Light- and Lightning-attribute and support artes that can cure aliments and heal allies. His unique Soma Build category is Dignity (矜持 Kyouji?, "Self-Confidence").
