"I must improve... I have to."
|Knight of Aventheim|
|Japanese Name||Mardin Scott|
|Unit Class||Lance Knight|
Mardin is a playable character in Knights in the Nightmare.
Mardin shoulders a strong sense of responsibility, to the point that others consider him too immersed in his work. He has a tendency to be pessimistic.
"A stoic pessimist, the only area of his life in which Mardin has confidence is his ability to throw darts. He worries about others to the point that their problems soon become his own. Although he is embarrassed to admit it, he idolizes Wunsche and hopes to be like him one day. Mardin's best friend is Fritz."
