The Story of Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2


A year has passed since the armistice was signed between Berman and Gasco, bringing the war to an end. The children, no longer embroiled in bloody conflict, had each gone their separate ways to enjoy the peaceful lives they fought for. One day, the children received letters from the Gasco Army requesting they convene in Pharaoh—the new capital city



Shayne Muscat

“Come now, Vanilla, introduce yourself.”

VA: Yuki Onodera / Age: 58 / Felineko

The de facto political head of Gasco. A pacifist whose primary focus is on domestic policy. His late wife passed half a year ago in a tragic accident—one which also left him covered in severe burns.



“All troops, cover the children!”

VA: Yasuhiro Mamiya / Age: 63 / Caninu

Chief general and supreme commander of the Gasco Army. Though outwardly gruff and fierce, he is a compassionate man with a soft spot for children. He is a close friend to the president.


Cannelle Muscat

“Eliminate all enemies that obstruct their path!”

VA: Sachi Kokuryu / Age: 27 / Felineko

A lieutenant in the Gasco Army and right-hand officer to General Merlot. Muscat is the president's eldest daughter, but she chose to defend Gasco via the military versus the political sphere. She is perennially concerned for her sister, Vanilla.
