Project Lumina has shared a new Melty Blood: Type Lumina gameplay trailer, focusing on Ciel.
While appearing as a normal student to her peers, she is actually an agent of the Holy Church; sent to purge heretics. She is immortal, thanks to being the vessel of an ancient and powerful vampire. While long since purged, her own magical abilities and influence of Michael Roa Valdamjong make her a lightning-fast powerhouse.
You can find the English and Japanese trailers below.
You can find the rundown on Ciel (via the official website) below.
“The Holy Church, a major religion in Europe, does not take kindly to heresy. Ciel works as an executor for its specialized force known as the Burial Agency. Her calling? Hunting and destroying heretics in the name of the Lord. Like Arcueid, she wishes to destroy her mortal enemy and has come to Souya in search of him, deciding to blend in by posing as a regular student at the same high school as Shiki. She currently attends school as a senior, one year above Shiki, and is quite popular with many of the students there. They see her as both warm and cheerful. Her go-to lunch from the school shop is curry bread, and her favorite restaurant serves the best curry in town.”
