Spada Belforma (スパーダ・ベルフォルマ Supaada Beruforuma?) is a young man from an aristocratic family. For unknown reasons, he cut ties with his family and siblings and never returned to his noble home.
Spada's past life is the Holy Sword Durandal, which was the sword the god Asras used in battle. The sword was sentient and was able to talk. Durandal was forged as a gift to Asras, but its true purpose was for Asras's lover, Inanna, to betray Asras to prevent the merging of heaven and earth and stab him, resulting in his death. Furious at the betrayal, Asras broke Durandal in half and stabbed Inanna. The three died afterward and became a statue in the Tower in the Sky.
Spada left home because his other six brothers were jealous of him being better than them. This jealousy eventually turned to violence, resulting in them trying to poison him. Because of this, he left, since his parents never took care of him and always focused on his brothers. Spada is first seen being arrested in Ruca Milda's hometown, though the party meets up with Spada at the research lab when they are held prisoner. At first, Ruca thinks Spada is a punk and gets scared of him easily. However, Iria and Spada get along, joking about ways to tease Ruca for his timid nature. A few minutes later, they are taken to a test ground and are forced to fight an Inousha. After the battle, Spada uses the power of his past life Durandal to take out a Latio. After that he joins the party, and they are sent to a battlefield to fight in the war.
Holy City of Naohs
When the party arrives in the Holy City of Naohs, the party meets Hartman, who was once a butler for the royal Belforma family, and it is discovered that Hartman was one of the people who taught Spada the "Knight's Code". Spada and Hartman share a familial bond, since he was Spada's caretaker.
Appearance and Personality
Spada has pale green hair, gray eyes, and fair skin. He wears a military green jacket, with light green and blue on the lapel and cuffs, over a long-sleeved white shirt. He sports a large black belt with red straps underneath on his waist, as well as, blue bands on both his upper arms. He wears red finger-less gloves, and his swords are kept on his back waist. He wears light blue pants that are tucked into his boots and a green military cap on his head.
Spada was raised in a family where he was not paid attention. His temperament is akin to that of a street urchin, as well as, his personality being a tad too bold. He has a sharp tongue, is a bit too brash, and is highly confident. Spada holds a strong sense of justice loyalty, and he is willing to do anything to protect his friends. He is especially fond of Ruca and very protective of him, part of which is due to bearing responsibility for his past life. When first meeting Ruca, he states that he usually talks harsh to a person when meeting, because he does not want to be looked down upon.
Spada fights in a style almost reminiscent of traditional swordsmen such as Reid Hershel and Lloyd Irving, possesing many of the classic melee artes that have existed since the earliest games of the series, modified to provide aerial capabilities. Spada focuses on speed and combos, allowing him to keep enemies staggered for a longer period of time while he attacks, while other characters like Ruca are capable of more damage per hit. He also posseses Wind-elemental magic, which incorporates a few traditionally Thunder-elemental spells into his repetoire.
Ruca Milda - Spada and Ruca share a strong bond that somewhat more than "family and friends" because of their intertwined destinies. Spada and Iria enjoy teasing him, but as the story progresses on Spada begins to care and become more protective of him. He can be very much of a tsundere around Ruca where in various romantic situations he can becaome flusted. Albeit that happening there are times when he will make advances towrds Ruca though this normally ends in awkward situations.
Iria Animi - Spada and Iria of clash because of there similar brash and outgoing personalities. They are opposites in many way though. They are, however, able to find common ground often. He thinks her laugh is digusting and vice-versa.
The relationship with Spada's family cannot have been well, as his six brothers were jealous of his skills and tried to poison him, and his parents only thought of his brothers. It is because of this that he left his home. He does, however, share a family-like bond with the family's butler, Hartman.
- Spada is Italian for sword, referencing the fact that Spada was the Holy Sword Durandal in his past life. His last name is also based on Italian, with bel meaning nice and forma meaning shape or form. This is referring to his noble birth and relatively quick and graceful fighting style. It is clear that Spada does unconsciously carry himself in a way that reflects his heritage, as Hartman remarks that he stands in the same way his father did when he was Spada's age.
- In the game, Spada's hat remaines on his head, whereas in the manga, he loses it during his jail-break.
