—Karla in a support conversation with Karel
It is implied in her supports with Farina that she and Karel were either born or have lived in Sacae, though she mentioned that her ancestors sailed from across the seas. She and her brother were raised in a place with no contact with the other Sacaen tribes, a place where women are not allowed to touch swords and have to always listen to what men say. With the law of inheritance meant only one would learn the secret ways of the family, she lost everyone in her family except Karel, who then severed ties to his past. She then wandered the continent in search of her brother.
While searching for her brother’s whereabouts, she would drop by various arenas, winning in succession until she came to be feared as the “Sword Princess.” In the arena she was challenged by Bartre, who she took interest in and they eventually grew to be lovers.
Although she has mastered the art of swordplay, she generally dislikes fighting and often finds peaceful methods of resolving conflict, fighting in arenas mainly in hopes of finding her brother. Still, due to not being influenced by the various other tribes, leading to an ignorant outlook of the world, and even after she finds out the truth about Karel, she strives to redeem him, or die trying.
Description: A dedicated swordfighter. Cool and detached.
In order to recruit her, three conditions have to be met: playing in Hector mode (whether Normal or Hard), having Bartre promoted to a level 5 Warrior before Chapter 31(x) starts, and including Bartre among the units taken into the stage itself. If all of this is fulfilled Karla appears as a neutral unit standing on top of the arena, and having Bartre talk to her will trigger a battle. Both Bartre and Karla must survive the fight in order for her to join your team.

Subjective: The following part of this article is subjective to the editor's writing. Therefore, it may not work for everyone.
Karla joins extremely late with lower stats than some of your other units and virtually no prospects at forming meaningful Support boosts. She possesses the Dark affinity, the rarest affinity in the game, and will thus almost never benefit from Tactician Stars in anything approximating optimal play. She is immediately surpassed by both Karel and Jaffar in virtually every area, her prospects for catching up to either are slim, and she will require loads of dedicated experience to train given her reasonably high starting level. Further complicating matters, her requirements for recruitment are obscure, and she will only be an option at all if the player chooses to raise Bartre. However, she has good accuracy, resistance, and avoid, despite having below average HP, Strength,and Defense. She CAN perform decently in the hard mode variant of Chapter 32x(H) , however, so long as the player is careful to avoid putting her in range of enemies wielding Swordslayers.
Despite her glaring flaws, Karla is competent enough to be combat-capable in the subsequent chapters. Her greatest weakness is her bleak outlook on strength, with very low growth and starting level, and almost no time for training.
