to Vandal Hearts' True Hero... Clive Beckett
Clive... it doesn't sound like the name of a man who would help reshape
history... but it is. Well, the history of a fictional world at least.
Without Clive Beckett, the revolution that freed Ishtaria would never
have been won. Who knows if Arris the Sage could have truly won if Beckett
had not been allied with him.
He also founded and ran the Security Defense Forces of Ishtaria, the
one true source of justice in the new Republic. Through his position
he enforced the laws with honor, and not the iron fist of the Crimson Guard.
Clive also mentored Ash Lambert. And without Ash, Ishtaria would
have been wiped from existence by the Flames of Judgement that had been
unleashed by Dolf.
Clive Beckett is at the center of everything that occurred in Ishtaria...
but he is often forgotten. Well, not anymore.
Vandal Hearts is a Strategy RPG released by Konami back in 1997
for the Playstation. It is very much in the same vein as Ogre Tactics,
and Final Fantasy Tactics.
