Well, would you look at that? Suddenly my drive to go do it is all gone.
- —Lechter, Trails of Cold Steel II
He has an aloof personality and elusive while on the face of things, and tends to be not tied down towards others.
As a member of Chancellor Giliath Osbourne’s personal group the Iron Bloods, he routinely showed up where Rean and his party were, tackling the various problems that would sprout up locally around the empire. Nonetheless, Lechter has an excellent track record as a negotiator for back door dealings involving the government and army, succeeding nearly every time he takes up such work. This reputation has earned him the nickname “Scarecrow.”
- He and Olivert Reise Arnor are the only characters to cameo in all main arcs of the Trails series.
