- "Looks like you're working hard, Sir Daniel."
Daniel Ausdin was a soldier of the Kingdom of Lucifenia's first army and the son of General George Ausdin. Not long after joining the Lucifenian army, Daniel was deployed for the Yellow Country's war against Elphegort. He became an interrogator for prisoners of war, hoping to learn the location of The Daughter of Green.
Daniel was born in the late fifth century EC as the third son of the noble Ausdin Family. At some point, he became familiar with the Lucifenian Royal Palace's patron Corpa. In EC 500, Daniel joined the Lucifenian army and became a new recruit in his father General George's first army.

Later during EC 500, the first army was deployed to invade the neighboring Kingdom of Elphegort, setting fire to the Lost Woods protecting the border. The next day, General George led Daniel and his fellow soldiers through the burnt areas of the forest directly into the Green Country, relaying Princess Riliane's decree to kill any Elphe women on sight until "The Daughter of Green" was confirmed dead.
Once the first army captured the capital of Aceid, the soldiers pushed north and captured the city of Toragay south of King Thorny Elphen's forces at Merrigod Plateau, occupying the city as a garrison. Once it was confirmed the Netsuma they arrested at Yatski had likely helped The Daughter of Green evade capture, Daniel was tasked with interrogating the woman, questioning Clarith for two months without success.
During another interrogation session, Daniel prodded Clarith to talk yet again without success before he was interrupted by the businessman Corpa. The shocked Daniel learned that he planned to take Clarith into his custody for a friend, Corpa showing him the necessary paperwork to do so. After confirming its legitimacy, Daniel continued to resist releasing their key witness to The Daughter of Green until Corpa revealed that Michaela had already been assassinated. As he questioned this, Daniel noticed blood seeping from Clarith's mouth and, finding she'd bit her tongue, immediately had the girl treated before releasing her into Corpa's custody.
When the royal palace recalled the first army to help deal with the revolts occurring throughout the kingdom later that year, Daniel and his father's forces began the return trip; during the retreat back, they faced resistance from the natives, slowing their march. After slowly pushing through the local resistance for three weeks, the army finally received word that the revolutionary army had captured the palace on December 19 and surrendered. Detained as prisoners of war, Daniel and the rest of the troops were later released and returned home to Lucifenia.
Personality and Traits
- "Man, despite telling you this war would be over if you just spilled everything too..."
- ―Daniel expressing his frustration[src]
Daniel was a proud young man, striving to prove himself. He possessed a self-important attitude typical of Lucifenians, and kept a serious demeanor to appear more dignified than his immature appearance implied. As a soldier he remained loyal to his country and to the chain-of-command despite any personal misgivings he had, such as in his dedication to finding The Daughter of Green and finally ending the conflict with Elphegort. Because of this, he was capable of being rude, condescending, and relentless towards oppositions to that goal such as Clarith or Corpa.
Skills and Abilities
As a soldier in the Lucifenian army, Daniel was a trained warrior; despite his noble status and place in his father's army, the soldier was sitll a new recruit and didn't ultimately have much authority on matters of the war. Aside from this, Daniel had limited capacity in gathering intelligence, though failing to elicit any useful information as an interrogator.
