Lucifenian Resistance (formerly)
Sekka Le Corbusier was one of the leaders of the Lucifenian Resistance and the wife of Minage. She joined in opposition of Princess Riliane's tyrannical regime over the kingdom along with her father York. Following the revolution, the woman abandoned the new government and reunited with her comrades again to oppose Marlon's occupation by King Kyle.
Born in the Kingdom of Lucifenia sometime during the fifth century EC, Sekka was raised by her father, York Le Corbusier. Following the death of Queen Anne in January of EC 499, Sekka and her fellow Lucifenians suffered under the tyrannical rule of Princess Riliane, becoming disillusioned with the royal government. When Germaine Avadonia decided to rebel against Riliane's tyranny after the mysterious assassination of her father the following year, Sekka joined her along with York, Minage, and Marc in establishing the Lucifenian Resistance.
After the rebels set up their base of operations at the abandoned home in the Forest of Bewilderment, Sekka and the others agreed to knock twice then five times repeatedly to confirm they were resistance members. Afterward, Germaine assigned Sekka the duty of securing supplies for the resistance; scouting the local merchants, the woman failed to secure any of their support, learning the traders were heavily influenced by the aristocracy and the Evillious Commerce Alliance's president, Keel Freezis.
Sekka later met with York, Minage, and Marc at the hideout, learning their progress was going poorly. Once Germaine arrived and learned about their lack of trained recruits from Minage, the resistance leader questioned Sekka about their supplies. She then related everything she learned regarding the merchants before suggesting they try convincing their boss. Afterward, Marc confirmed similar issues with intelligence. Sekka then heard Germaine say it wasn't the right time for them to reveal their existence to any palace officials and York agreed that it could bring about the end of the resistance.
After they discovered the Forest of Bewilderment was on fire later that year, Sekka and the others joined in trying to put out the flames. While carrying more water over with her father, she heard him note their base was safe for the time being, adding that it was only a matter of time before it too was burned. The strained Sekka immediately stated they could make a new headquarters and that extinguishing the fire was what they needed to focus on. When a group of Lucifenian soldiers on horseback approached them demanding they stop putting out the fire, Sekka listened to Marc argue with one of the soldiers.
She later heard the soldier reveal that the fire was intentionally caused under Riliane's order to prepare for their invasion of the neighboring Elphegort. When it then suddenly rained and doused the flames, all the common folk rejoiced at the fortunate event. Once they confirmed the soldiers had left, everyone returned home triumphant.
Preparation for InsurrectionEdit
After the Lucifenian army invaded the next day and began slaughtering any Elphe woman or other person who resisted them, Chartette Langley joined Sekka and the others at the resistance meetings to share information from the royal palace. During one meeting at their hideout, the sound of three knocks came to the door and everyone picked up a weapon anticipating a potential enemy. When York questioned who was there, a young man's voice responded that he was there to cooperate with them, pleading they open the door.
After York asked Germaine what to do, she admitted her own concern and asked Minage to look outside. After he confirmed the man wasn't dressed like a Lucifenian soldier and was there alone, Germaine ordered they open the door and be ready kill him if he turned out to be an enemy. York opened the door and allowed the masked man with a bloodied hand holding a shell pendant to enter. The mysterious man then agreed to support the resistance in overthrowing Princess Riliane's regime.
Once they gained the support of Keel Freezis and began preparing for their revolution, Sekka confirmed the merchants and the Langley blacksmith properly supplied the revolutionary army. Later on, she attended the resistance's final meeting before their planned revolution. Once Germaine arrived and Minage confirmed their numbers were more than enough between Lucifenia, Elphegort, and the mask man's soldiers, Sekka heard her father speak up that the latter was the problem. York then argued with the suspicious man over his trustworthiness bringing an elite army of outsiders while wearing a mask.
Sekka then told the two to quiet down and Germaine shared her trust in the masked man with York. The revolutionary then listened while her father inquired about the mysterious blue-haired man's name. After the man claimed he was "Karchess", Germaine asked Sekka about the supplies. While stretching, she confirmed Keel provided them with weapons. As she began adding about the Langely blacksmith's involvement, a knock came at the door and the blacksmith entered with more weapons and armor for them.
- "I thought this could happen when she joined the resistance. Not stopping it was my fault."

After Germaine and the others started up the revolution, Sekka and York joined Germaine in fighting with their forces in Rollam against the Lucifenian army. During the following week, the soldiers pushed the resistance army to its breaking point when the Rollam merchants delivered supplies. Resupplied, the resistance army pushed their assault over the next week and the city was captured; during the period, Sekka was seriously injured. Once Rolled was captured by Karchess and Marc's forces a week later, the two resistance forces linked up and heading toward the capital of Lucifenian.
After reaching the city, York confirmed Sekka's injuries weren't life-threatening and decided to send her back home while the resistance marched on toward the royal palace. After the resistance captured the palace, imprisoned The Daughter of Evil, and forced the Lucifenian army to surrender, Sekka and the others discovered Karchess was actually Marlon's King Kyle. Shocked, the bed-ridden woman began putting on makeup to look more attractive in the foreign royal's presence. She later missed the peace talks at the royal palace five days later, on December 24, as she continued to heal.
- "But, your comrades—the members of the resistance were rebelling against Marlon at that time. Indeed, that's what I heard."
"Everyone was only fighting back because Kyle was suddenly trying to purge both me and them."
- ―Yukina Freezis and Germaine[src]
Three months after The Daughter of Evil's execution on December 26, the Marlon government announced its Witch Hunting Ordinance proclaiming Germaine a fugitive wanted for treason; realizing Kyle's intention was to eradicate the resistance leaders, Sekka joined York and Minage in setting up a base of operations at Breck Mountain a few days after the proclamation, amassing troops for the reconstituted resistance army with her father as the leader and Minage his second-in-command. At some point, Sekka married Minage and had several children with him.
When the Lucifenian forces from Retasan Fortress assaulted them, the resistance successfully resisted the onslaught and pushed them back, eventually capturing the fort. After the forces commanded by General Riliane Mouchet defeated the resistance at both Breck Mountain and Retasan in EC 503, Sekka and her comrades fled from the fortress and retreated over the border into the Beelzenian Empire, seeking safe haven. When the Beelzenian Emperor agreed to protect the resistance from Marlon in exchange for them serving as part of its army per his adviser Gumillia's advice, the resistance agreed to the arrangement.
- "Shut up, Minage. You go home and show your face to your brats once in a while. Sekka's been complaining."
Once Germaine and Chartette reunited with the resistance in Beelzenia in EC 504, Chartette replaced Sekka's disabled father as captain of the new "Langley Unit", the former resistance setting up camp at an abandoned town near the Lucifenian border. Later on in EC 505, Sekka told York her worries with Minage spending little time at home with her and the children.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Sekka was a brave and somewhat stubborn woman much like her father. Having been raised by the former soldier, Sekka was irritable and quick to speak up, especially against her father's temper. Despite being a patriot to her country, she was disillusioned with the royal government headed by Princess Riliane and became devoted to overthrowing the tyrannical regime to create a more prosperous and less oppressive government; because of this, she was strongly opposed to any form of aristocratic rule, though otherwise respectful of foreign nobles and royals.
While typically rather indifferent toward her appearance, Sekka was mindful of looking prettier in front of rich nobility or royalty. The young woman also demonstrated other more feminine qualities, including loving and caring for her children with Minage after their marriage. While devoted to the resistance's cause, Sekka had concerns about her husband's workaholic nature and felt lonely caring for the children alone and leaving their progeny without a present father.
Skills and AbilitiesEdit
In spite of her petite body, Sekka was moderately athletic and a capable fighter, though apparently not as skilled as her comrades. She also had some prowess with diplomacy and negotiation, able to discreetly speak with the local merchants, though unable to actually win their support.
York Le Corbusier: Sekka's father. Sekka cared deeply about her father and, as well, worked closely with him as a fellow member of the resistance. Because of their close and casual relationship, Sekka easily spoke out against him when he was being difficult as well as often confiding her frustrations in him.
Minage: Sekka's comrade and later husband. Working with him as a fellow member of the resistance, Sekka at some point became close with Minage and started a family with him. After their marriage, she often missed Minage while he continued to work as a soldier.
Germaine Avadonia: Sekka's friend and leader. Sekka trusted Germaine and worked closely with her in the resistance, believing strongly in her cause to overthrow the monarchy.
