Maltran was born in Marlind into a family of knights. With the death of the heirs, the succession was forced upon her, and she disciplined herself with her strong sense of responsibility, in time becoming known as the "Blue Valkyrie". Ten years prior to the events of the story, during one of the skirmishes between Hyland and Rolance, malevolence accumulated over the battlefield, which caused her jealous fellow countrymen to turn into lizardmen hellions and attack her.
A Rolance soldier who ran away in the midst of the battle witnessed them attacking her in a large group, which left him wondering how she managed to survive some ten years after her seeming death. In reality, the betrayal was the trigger for Maltran's transformation into a hellion. Having lost her faith in humanity and deciding that destroying the world would result in restoring it, she joined forces with Heldalf, the Lord of Calamity. When she returned to Ladylake, she took the dreamy and pacifist Princess Alisha under her wing and began pretending to support her. With the help of the Princess, she began to incite actions within the Hyland council to push the war into an earlier start.
Appearance and Personality
Maltran dresses in an outfit similar yet more refined than Alisha's. Her attire consists of a blue jacket with a white, revealing corset underneath and a black choker. She wears protective armor on her forearms and legs. Her faded magenta hair is held back into a curly ponytail, and half of her face is hidden by her long bangs.
At first, Maltran seems supportive in Alisha's decisions. When her identity as a hellion is revealed however, she admits that it is all a front to serve the Lord of Calamity.
Maltran fights using a long spear, similarly to Alisha, her trainee. She also shares her mystic arte, Light Blast, with her, which is a series of quick upward thrusts with her spear. Maltran's battle style is also similar to Victoria's from Tales of Graces, having the same weapon of choice and sharing artes that are similar in appearance, including quick spear thrusts and spin kicks performed on the impaled spear.
Appearances in Other Media
Tales of Zestiria the X
In Tales of Zestiria the X, Maltran is not corrupted and never becomes an antagonist. Instead, she serves as a motherly figure and mentor to Alisha throughout the series, and expresses strong loyalties to her. Aside from the Princess, it is suggested that she also instructed the knights Shiller and Ian.
- Maltran's manner of clothing is similar to Victoria's from Tales of Graces in that they both wear predominantly blue outfits with knee-high boots and white pants. Both of them also wear their hair in ponytails, although Maltran's is longer than Victoria's. This may be one of many nods to the battle system, which Tales of Zestiria draws inspiration from Tales of Graces.
