"Everything will be all right if we work together!"
Noel Vermillion is a former Lieutenant of the Novus Orbis Librarium and the wielder of the Nox Nyctores dual transforming weapons "Arcus Diabolus: Bolverk." A nervous, but kindhearted young woman, Noel aims to help others wherever she goes.
Noel was initially created as a Murakumo Unit, like Nu-13, on December 25, 2194 by the "Sector Seven" organization. Named "Mu-12," she was made in Ikaruga to become the heart of a new Black Beast as the ultimate weapon for Sector Seven to use against NOL. However, Ikaruga is completely obliterated in the midst of the Ikaruga Civil War while Mu-12 is still being constructed. She was found as an amnesiac and adopted by the aristocratic Vermillion household and named Noel. Wishing to repay her family for saving her life, she decides to enroll in NOL's Military Academy in an attempt to save the Vermillions from being excommunicated from society. In the Military Academy, she met her current best and most dear friends, Makoto Nanaya and Tsubaki Yayoi. After graduating, Noel was noticed for her unique talents and became a part of the 4th Magic Division under Jin Kisaragi's command, thus restoring the Vermillion household's aristocratic rights.
Deciding to defect from NOL after learning about their true agenda, Noel has become the target of an organized manhunt established by Hazama/Terumi thanks to their authoritative abilities as a commanding intelligence officer within NOL. Hazama/Terumi are part of a very small number of people who know about her origins as Mu-12, and, ergo, realize her importance to their plans.
Noel is a rushdown character that focuses more on movement. She does not have much in terms of long reaching normals or even specials to help her approach. Instead, Noel must rely on combining her fast movement with fundamental movement to bait people into trying to stop her approaches and whiff, which will open up opportunities to close the gap and sometimes whiff punish the opponent. Once up close, Noel's drive offers good options to go for mixups and also possess invulnerability against attacks with particular attributes, rewarding good reads.
Drive: Chain Revolver
Noel's Chain Revolver makes a return in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle in somewhat more simplified fashion. Noel's B normals all corespond to a different drive normal from the original Blazblue series. Once you enter the drive stance by pressing one of these normals, you can get a different drive normal by pressing A, 5B, 2B, 5C or 2C during the drive stance. Much like the original Chain Revolver drive, you can do up to a total of 4 drive normals once you enter the stance. After you reach the maximum of 4 drive normals, pressing A, B or C again will make Noel end the drive stance by doing Bloom Trigger.
