Kresnik Ahtreide is a character from Wild Arms 4. He is the older brother of Yulie Ahtreide, and is highly devoted to doing whatever it takes to protect her. Kresnik is a Gene Driver, but enhanced artificially. He also makes use of his very nice motorcycle, the "Javelin", which he uses to make suitably dramatic appearances from time to time. Kresnik has two songs associated with his character: the first is a leitmotif, That Is Where The Spirit Becomes Certain, that plays during specific and pivotal scenes during the game. The second is Feeling the Bonds, the song that plays in a music box he carries with him.
Wild Arms 4
Kresnik left Yulie behind in the White Orphanage when they were younger, in order to join Brionac. The two would be reunited years later, albeit under much less convenient circumstances that ultimately force them apart once again.
Of all the members of Brionac, Kresnik is the most honorable and is a model soldier. This, unfortunately, puts him in a very bad position when he's ordered to recapture his own sister, Yulie Ahtreide at any cost. Doing so puts him at odds with his own moral code, as well as at odds with Jude Maverick, who has sworn to protect her. Over the course of the game, however, his internal conflict is put to an end when he prioritizes his sister's safety over his duty to Brionac. It is during the final dungeon, Illsveil Prison Island, that Kresnik joins up with Jude and Yulie's quartet to save Filgaia from the Divine Weapon. Jude and Kresnik get separated from the other three and it is just before everyone is reunited that Kresnik seems to perish, leaving his Howling Spike with Jude and falling into an abyss. A hint to his survival appears after the game's final battle, where the music box he carried around is left right outside of the synthesis shop in Halim.
