Zero no Kiseki[2] and Ao no Kiseki[3] are two connected role-playing video games developed by Nihon Falcom as a part of the larger The Legend of Heroes[4] series. Together as a duology, they are considered the seventh game in the series, and take place three months after the end of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky the 3rd and in a different country, Crossbell. The games star Lloyd Bannings, a rookie investigator within the Crossbell police force, joining three years after the death of his brother.
