Master Ore

The head of the Heroes training school. A white-haired, white-bearded old man. When accusations of murder forced them to run, Vulkay’s parents left their son with Ore for him to raise. He leaves the direct teaching to the instructors and maintains a gentle watch over the trainees. He cheerfully lends his assistance to help Heroes dodge interference from the governor-general in Antania (this world’s capital), who tries to act beyond the law. When Vulkay becomes depressed over having no blood relatives, he gives the boy a pep talk by telling him the truth about his parents. He is also a former Hero, and while he may have retired, he still has his powers. In the middle of the story, he stays behind to help Vulkay and the others escape the school when it’s attacked.
