Aa-chan, Please look out for Rean for me
- —Millium's intro quote, Trails of Cold Steel III
I’m still “friends” with you guys in Class VII
Let's go go go, Lammy!
Millium Orion is a main character in the The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel tetralogy. A young girl accompanied by her puppet Airgetlam, who is actually a member of the Ironbloods, the Chancellor's personal information agency under the code-name “White Rabbit”. At first debuting as a support character, she become a playable Class VII member as the game progresses.
Millium has a shade of blue-turquoise short hair and amber eyes. She wears her special-ops jumpsuit which is waterproof and paletted in the same color as Airgetlam. Later on in Trails of Cold Steel, she later wears the standard Class VII crimson uniform with a dangling beanie after her transfer.
In Trails of Cold Steel II, she switches to her wartime clothes styled as a sailor uniform with a beret. She wears a long-sleeved monochrome shirt with a belt around her chest styled like a ribbon, with a thin black shirt and brown shorts on the inside and wearing dark turquoise patterned stockings in white boots
In Trails of Cold Steel III, Millium travels around in her new intelligence uniform with a new beret. black-striped stocking with white boots
Millium has an innocent and friendly personality, and her classmates and friends are often surprised about how she speaks of such confidential information so lightly.
Despite this, Millium lived an unusual life being used as a tool of sorts due to her being an Ironblood and never able to cry or otherwise normally express emotion. She joins Class VII, but sometimes feels she does not really fit in. She never attended Sunday School and is ignorant in some ways of the normal lives of people. It is later revealed that she is actually a "manufactured human" of advanced technology, which explains why there is no change in her status despite aging.
Millium Orion appears as an innocent young girl, but not an average teenager due to the fact she has high aptitude to control "Airgetlam", a silver Combat Shell of unknown origin as she. In reality, she is actually a member of the Ironbloods, the Imperial Army of Erebonia’s Intelligence Division who answers only to Chancellor Osborne under the codename “White Rabbit”.
It was until her encounter with Class VII during her missions that Millium began to discover her own enjoyment in her life. After the crisis in Heimdallr was settled, Osborne admitted her into Thors Military Academy as Class VII's "transfer student", where she met her friends and lived a daily life that could not be matched. Although her faith was loyal to Osborne even after the civil war, Millium gradually began to show emotions and consider where she really belongs.
After graduating from Thors, Millium returned to her post as an undercover agent. While sometimes carrying out joint missions with Altina, she continues to keep in touch with the members of Class VII, including Jusis.
