QLeft.png The king who ruled over Athens in Ancient Greece. Unable to walk properly since birth, he invented the chariot and headed to war to protect his people. He was resilient even in the face of adversity. From "Auriga the Charioteer." QRight.png


Erichthonius's Situation

Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Erichthonius was the king of Athens in Ancient Greece.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
He was a great man who fought to protect the city of Athens and its people!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Erichthonius was born into the royal family, but...


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
He had the misfortune of being unable to walk properly using the legs he was born with.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Unable to walk with your own legs... That must be so difficult.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
When I think about what would happen if I couldn't walk with my own legs...


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I would be sad every day and probably cry if I wasn't able to do my backflips or hero poses...


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
But Erichthonius was different.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Regardless of his fate, he never cursed that with which he was born.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Overcoming adversity, Erichthonius took care of all of his people and became a truly great king.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
This is where the story of Erichthonius gets really impressive.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
This is what he did! He crafted a special carriage to use in place of his legs!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
If you are unable to walk, you can craft something to help you move around.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The idea itself is amazing... If you find yourself lamenting, there are other things you can do, and that's a really positive way of looking at things!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
This is something that I need to take to heart from now on.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
On top of that! It didn't only improve his ability to move!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Even the hardest of Spartan warriors were unable to stop Erichthonius's carriage!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The Spartan warriors that set their sights on Athens were torn apart and blown away.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Here's another thing! He was able to drift using his carriage to defeat his enemies.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Drifting in a carriage! That's so awesome!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Another thing that is said about Erichthonius, is that he always carried a baby goat close to his chest when he went to battle.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
There is an anecdote about the baby goat.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
When the Greek god Zeus was running for his life from Cronus, he survived on mountain goat milk while in hiding.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That gave him the strength to keep himself safe from disaster.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
From that incident, a baby goat became the symbol of good luck in Greece.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Ever since then, Erichthonius shared in the same good fortune by carrying a baby goat close to his chest whenever he went to battle.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The people of Athens were always excited to see Erichthonius fight using his carriage!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Erichthonius was respected by the whole nation!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The gods honored his courage and accomplishments upon death by raising him to the heavens to become the constellation of the charioteer "Auriga"...


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That is the gist of the story of Erichthonius.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
When I read the script and the setting, I was really shocked!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I blurted out, "This is my favorite kind of role. No doubt about it!".


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The basis in history, and the setting, make it a difficult and complicated role.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
But I said to myself "You can do it!" Even from the start, I didn't hesitate.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Heh heh, did I feel sympathy with Erichthonius?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
And what will the fate of Lalafin be, when she joins in on the battle for the throne?!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Stay tuned for "Lalafin's Secret" charioteer Erichthonius, and don't you touch that dial!

The Fortitude of Erichthonius

Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Heh heh, it's time for me to show you! Lalafin's performance of Erichthonius!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That is... The coolness of a hero!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
When it comes to a hero, they overcome adversity no matter what!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Heroes use their wisdom and courage to overcome an unfortunate upbringing and unnatural fate!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That is unmistakably the aesthetics of a superhero!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Erichthonius fits that bill perfectly!!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Unable to properly walk when he was born, his indomitable spirit was second to none...


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
See! There's no doubting it!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Of course, this isn't the only reason I consider Erichthonius a hero.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The second reason is the carriage that he invented!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The important thing of note here is that not only was the carriage used for daily use, but it was also equipped with deadly weapons for use in battle.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Deadly weapons for use in battle... You already know about this, right?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
In other words, Erichthonius's carriage was comparable to a hero suit!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
To fight on the carriage you invented yourself...! Very impressive! A heroic tale!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Suffering with unwanted powers obtained through a sudden mutation or created by an evil organization is a usual pattern, but...


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Making an effort to obtain the power from within yourself – that is an admirable approach!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Making your own version of a hero suit is really heroic, yep!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That's why Erichthonius, who made his own version of a power suit and took control of his destiny, is a true hero!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That's not all! If we're taking about Erichthonius, then there's another thing of great importance!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The symbol of good luck, the baby goat!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Having a symbol of good luck on your chest – that's already a hero right there, but...


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That's not all! There is subtle hint of cuteness mixed in with all of the coolness.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
A wonderful idea that could be the focus when making promotional items!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
When it comes to Erichthonius, you can imagine him drinking the same goat milk as Zeus did every day, right?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
...Even his favorite meal is pretty cute.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
See! The details and design of this role are a lot like a hero!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That's right! I've convinced myself. Erichthonius is actually a superhero!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
With all of that in mind, my performance of Erichthonius will include all the coolness of a hero.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That is why I took part in this performance....


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
But in the end, it was Junna from Seisho that received the brilliance of Auriga...


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The performance itself was mostly adlibbed and really fun.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Though, in all honesty, I'm a little disappointed that I wasn't the one who shone brightest.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
But! But! There's no point in feeling down!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Heroes learn from their defeats! An indomitable spirit is the foundation of a hero!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Not to mention that it's almost guaranteed that you grow stronger after facing a powerful opponent!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
And that is why I can't give up!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Next time, I will power up my brilliance and show everyone a super Erichthonius!

Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
The role of Erichthonius has to be one of my favorites, so I'm really looking forward to the next performance!

Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
It might be a bit of an exaggeration, but I think this portrayal of Erichthonius might have been my best yet!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
After all, it matches my image of a hero perfectly!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I'm sure it will be an amazing performance, so prepare yourself for a great time!
