Isn't it too early to confirm him as Bruno? He might still be Zach 12:21, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

It's been in the game data/assets since the game was released that ??? is Bruno. With the release of Chapter 10, it's been officially revealed that ???'s name is Bruno.

Tho in the battle itself he is still listed as ??? not to mention in Chapter 9 he specifically said that he wasn't part of Embla. 17:01, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
In the dialogue that happens in Chapter 10, his name changes from ??? to Bruno.
Just to be clear, I'm not completely against changing it back to ??? if completely necessary since the concern has also been brought up by other Wiki moderators (Although for different reasons. eg. Spoilers). However, considering that it's been "confirmed" in the assets, and the story officially revealed his name (Although left it unchanged in battle), I'm not entirely convinced with the argument to change Bruno back to ??? just on a potential theory that he might still be Zacharias.

Moving theory that was on wiki page to here.

Some speculate that Bruno might be Zacharias, Alfonse's long lost friend. This evidence can be shown in a Paralogue map where one of the heroes, Nino the Pious Mage, gives a letter to Alfonse. It reads, "Alfonse, you must be worried about where I've gone to. Sorry, but all this was necessary. I stumbled upon a secret about the Emblian Empire's royal family... I needed to see whether it was true or not. I am still investigating. But know this for now... Veronica is not our enemy. The true villain is Bruno." Just before the start of Paralogue map 3-1, we see Bruno looking for a demon of some sorts on a book, much to his surprise that the name is not shown. This may be Zacharias trying to find info on the past of the royal family and trying to find this power before anyone else. But of course, this is just one of many theroies out there.

Changing to ???: Masked Knight[edit source]

  • Turns out the anon was correct, I just checked the story maps and there is actually no map where the unit's name is Bruno, even after he has revealed his name. In addition, the name ID for "Bruno" (MPID_ブルーノ皇子) is only used in story dialogue, and has no corresponding epithet (MPID_HONOR_ブルーノ皇子). If one of the versions did use Bruno, we would have to create a separate page, one for the enemy version and another for the potentially playable enemy version, as they would technically be two different Heroes because "Heroes that share the same illustration, name, and epithet are considered the same Hero", in this case being that they share the two illustration and epithet, but not name.

    • Strange, I swore they changed the in-game name, but yeah, checking again you're completely right Endilyn. If they did make a version named "Bruno: Masked Knight", but with the same artwork, and same sort of stat spread etc. then I'd argue that maybe we could code an exception? But I guess it's more likely if he does become playable they'll make an alt (I think Sharena mentions he used to use a lance when he was in the order of heroes). Also unrelated, but for some reason he doesn't show up on the Story Maps page, under Chapter 12-5: The Mask Cracks. How do you edit that stuff? Theif (talk) 21:39, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
      • The enemy list on those tables are automatically generated, it must be an querying error of some sort, but I checked right now and for me Bruno appears, so perhaps it's some sort of caching issue. Endilyn (talk) 22:17, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
