Lady Harken was created by Alhazad from the body of Elmina following the attack on Arctica Castle, shortly before the events of Wild ARMs.

"So, you’re an expert with Fast Draw, huh? Ha, it looks more like a Fat Draw than a Fast Draw."
— Lady Harken, showing that she never leveled up in her Trash Talk skill

A knight of the Kingdom of Arctica.

Her title is "Sword". That means, she's the "attack" of the Fenril Knights. In Arctica, they called her by the nickname, "Sword Princess".

It's quite clearly said in the game that she used to have something going on with the "Vanbrace" of the Fenril Knights. That is, Garrett.

When the Arctica castle was attacked by the Demons, she got injured, and when Alhazad killed the king and Ryan, Chief Coldbird told her and Garrett to run. However, because of the injury, she decided to stay in the castle and protect Garrett's escape.

She was obviously believed to have died like the other Fenril Knights.

History

Lady Harken was created by Alhazad from the body of Elmina following the attack on Arctica Castle, shortly before the events of Wild ARMs. She was a crafty, quick tongued warrior princess who quickly gained the rank of Quarter Knight and joined the ranks of Zeikfried, Alhazad and Belselk (later Boomerang).

She is not fought for the entire first half of the game. Rather she stays behind at the Photosphere. She succeeds in releasing the final piece of Mother's heart by destroying the final statue aboard the Sweet Candy, leading to Mother's resurrection. She also serves as an antagonist on the Sweet Candy after defeating Mother. She is desperate to show off her fast draw, as evidenced when she offers to defeat the trio instead of enduring Belselk's constant failures. Her lust for battle is finally shown off against the trio in the Dragon Shrine, just as the trio reach Lucadia, the Ocean guardian. She quickly recognises Jack and they exchange words which indicates they had a partnership in the past, unbeknownst to Rudy and Cecilia. Her fast draw techniques inspire Jack to craft two attacks after her, the Guilty blade and the Magnum fang.

She was quickly battled again at the Demon lab, but not before a cutscene showed her relationship with Alhazad. Alhazad saw Harken as nothing more than a pet to manipulate. She was his grand experiment, and he lusted after her. Harken quickly rebuffed him, saying that only the souls of her victims may sleep in her bosom. The trio defeat her once again, but this time she reverts back to her human form. This quickly makes Jack fall into a despair, and Alhazad takes Elmina away, ready to be recrafted as Harken.

Harken was used as the catalyst for the Darkness tear. Alhazad and Zeikfried explain that Harken was once a human female, which carries life. This subsequently means it can be taken away. Using Harken, the Demons begin an attack against the Ray Line (Lay Line in Alter Code: F) and almost destroy Filgaia. Jack succeeds in freeing Harken from the Darkness Tear, which enrages Alhazad and Zeikfried, they teleport away and Jack begins to explain his history between himself and Harken. They were seemingly romantically linked back in the days of the Arctica Kingdom.

Jack finds Harken at Arctica Castle waiting for a true battle between themselves. Using Jack alone, he successfully drives the demon out of Harken, in turn effectively killing Elmina. With his courage to put his love out of her misery, he causes the Lion idol to shatter, as he has shown true courage to defend not only himself, but the people he cares about.

Using the Rings of Timespace, Elmina (with her memory modified) can be revived and a small cutscene can be witnessed between Jack and Elmina, in where he gives her back the ribbon Elmina gave to Jack in the opening video of the game.
