Rory Mercury, Rory The Reaper

Charaben Rory Mercury

GATE: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri – Rory Mercury 1/7

It was a fateful day. An unknown dimensional gate opened in the area of Ginza (Japan) and medieval warriors and creatures from myth and legend attacked the citizens of Ginza. After the incident, the armed forces put together a task-force, the JSDF, to venture past the gate to explore an unknown region. They managed to complete their base and the main character, Kouji Itami, a RPG game obsessed 33-year-old, is deployed to lead a team to discover more about this new world they find themselves in. During their mission, they find new allies (an Elf, Mage and The Apostle of Emroy). Rory Mercury is the Apostle of Emroy.

Rory Mercury looks very kawaii in her loli outfit, clutching her halberd and those of us who met her in the anime feel pity for the enemies that will taste that halberd’s blade. Anyone on the other side of that weapon is on the wrong side of the fight! She is not the frail 12-year-old girl everyone sees, she is a 961-year-old force to be reckoned with.
