Erieste Frederick Otsdarva is a character in the Unsungverse, appearing in Kingdom Hearts: The Unsung War Trilogy and in Kingdom Hearts: Confessions of a Knight. The father of Raven Otsdarva, he made a name for himself during the Lucidian War where he fought alongside Maximillian Thermidor and Reo Hamilton as one of the original members of Task Force 108, the unit his son now leads.
Erieste Otsdarva was born on July 27, 68 DC in the Unity Islands. He had a somewhat quiet life until he met with an independent Keyblade master at the age of 6. His name was Master Eraqus, then in his 30's. Seeing potential in the boy, he took Erieste to his world, the Land of Departure to shape him to be a model knight over the course of his 12 year training. This came at a time where the Union of the Realm of Light was under threat from both the Heartless Empire and the rapidly expanding Lucid Empire.
It was over his training that he met a female warrior from a faraway world, Charlotte Serna. Serna herself was a Keyblade Knight, an immigrant from the Kingdom of Sonne, whos family claims descent to the ancient peoples of the Eastern Realms. The two would eventually marry in 90 DC and would have a son, Raven in 91 DC.
The Lucidian WarEdit
The Unsung WarEdit
On September 27, Raven and Erieste headed to the middle sized of the three Islands, Sand Island, to go and clear the forested areas of Heartless, a few Shadows for their training. Upon arriving, Erieste noticed something being cloaked, but Raven, having fun and chiding his dad decided to head up into the forest without him. Traveling up the forest path, Raven came to a forest clearing. It was there that he encountered Garland, who was sent there to recon on a potential place to strike at the Realm of Light. Raven, who was insulted by the man, engaged him in combat, but was unable to defeat him. Erieste's intervention saved Raven, who told his son to head to the beach and find some help while he dealt with Garland. Raven begrugindly left to find help, leaving Erieste to face Garland. He would dissappear, not seen by anyone on the island during the conflict.
