[Noel] Her battle style makes good use of her gigantic weapon’s reach to keep opponents at a distance. “MELTY BLOOD: TYPE LUMINA” is coming to PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch™, Xbox One, and Steam on Sept 30, 2021! A new entry in the “MELTY BLOOD” series of 2D fighting games based on TYPE-MOON’s visual novel “Tsukihime.”
Noel appears one day as Shiki Tohno’s homeroom teacher after his previous one died suddenly.
She recently transferred to Shiki’s school as a new teacher. However, her real identity is an executor for the Burial Agency and Ciel’s partner. She may not have the battle experience Ciel does, but she’s prepared to fight. Whenever faced with a weak opponent, she shows no mercy, claiming to be “weak against the strong, but overwhelmingly strong against the weak.” At school, she exploits her appeal as an older woman to gain popularity with the boys. The girls, however, don’t seem to like her. Judging from the way she idolizes love and marriage, it’s safe to say she doesn’t have much luck with either.
In the original Tsukihime source material for Melty Blood, Noel was a side character that had limited connection to the main stories inside this visual novel. She is first introduced in the story as a substitute teacher that replaces Shiki Tohno’s homeroom teacher who mysteriously disappeared. Noel does this job with a flirty and friendly attitude but is only doing the job as a cover for her hunting work for the Holy Church similar to Ciel.
As the story progresses regardless of which story route the player chooses, Noel either stands down and leaves her post as an undercover teacher or gets turned into a vampire that the main characters have to put down. So far, the Melty Blood Type Lumina’s iteration of Noel seems more human than her vampire variant.
For now, we’ll have to wait for more information about what’s her role in the game if she’ll yet be another side character for the main cast to brush off.
