“Well, my mother fought with the liberation army. After the war we all fled to Silesia. But my mother and baby sister were taken from me, and this pendant is all I have left of her. I found out just recently that it was King Blume who took them from me. I also found out that my mother had passed away but that my sister was still alive! YOU are my sister! I've come all the way from Silesia for you!”
—Part of Arthur's conversation that recruits Teeny
Separated from his mother and sister from a young age, Arthur perpetually grew up in Silesia alone, mastering the art of Wind Magic. He later travels with Phee to search for Teeny in the events of Chapter 6. He initially holds a grudge towards Bloom for wrenching his family away from him, but later develops a deep hatred for Hilda as well, as he learns that she is directly responsible for inflicting the most amount of pain and suffering to his family.
Arthur may be compared to that of a "frozen flower", whereby he appears to be be cold and unfeeling on the outside, but is, in actuality, a kind and sensitive inidividual on the inside. Arthur is also cool-headed, logical and sharp in his responses to quips made towards him.
Arthur's vulnerable side is revealed upon his learning of his mother Tailto's tragic fate and the suffering his surviving sister Teeny endured. This results in him being protective over Teeny, as he resolves to never be separated from her ever again.

Arthur was a mythical king of England who wielded the Excalibur and was aided by his Knights of the Round Table, as well as Merlin and his wife Guinevere. He met a morbid end, due to wounds suffered from his nephew/son Mordred.
Since Tailto arrives in the game together with Claud, they are often paired together by beginners by default. As a result, Arthur ends up joining Celice's army with the Valkyrie Staff, but is unable to use it due to class restrictions. As such, Arthur is often subjected to a running gag (mostly in 4-Koma manga), whereby his allies will ask him to use the Valkyrie Staff to resurrect a fallen ally, but as he is unable to use it, he ends up either harming them with offensive magic, or utilizing it in an unskillful manner, often resulting in disastrous consequences.
