Welf Crozzo

ヴェルフ・クロッゾ, Ignis
Race: Human Height: 175 cm 59 Affiliation: Hestia Familia Level: 2 Skills: Crozzo Blood Veritas Burn Magic: WilloWisp Weapon: Greatsword Welf Crozzo is a member of the Hestia Familia and Bells personal blacksmith later becoming one for the entire Hestia Familia after converting from the Hephaestus Familia. Welf was originally born in Rakia a nation type Familia ruled by Ares. As a member of the Crozzo Family he lived as a noble due to the successes his predecessors had in creating magic swords. However his life changed the day his Skill Crozzo Blood appeared which enabled him to create magic swords again. Despite his familys joy at the prospect of being able to create more magic swords Welf despised his skill causing him to escape Rakia with the help of his former Goddess Phobos. Welf Crozzo is a straightforward and honest person. He is generally casual to everyone that he associates with. He doesnt like to be associated with his family name preferring to not be a part of the conversation when his name is brought up and even refuses people that come to him seeking magic swords. Welf holds a deep hatred for magic swords considering them to be objects that rot the user as they would always break away and leave the user behind. However after the battle against the Black Goliath on the 18th Floor his hatred lessens somewhat though he still refuses to make magic swords for anyone other than members of his own Familia. Welf holds a lot of pride in his work. He refuses to let Bell wear armor not forged by his own hands and desires to surpass Hephaestus without using his ability to make magic swords wishing to prove that he is his own man. While not arrogant he did let the title of High Smith get to his head for a time which Tsubaki coldly pointed out when she easily split a shortsword he had made. Despite making works of good quality Welf tends to give them poor names though he doesnt realize it and gets disappointed when the recipient chooses something else. Both Bell and Mikoto have each fiercely pleaded with him to give their weapons a better name the Ushiwakamaru and Kotetsu were to be called Minotan and Shimajirou respectively. Despite leaving the Hephaestus Familia he is thankful for everything that Hephaestus has done for him telling her that he would always remember what she had taught him.
