|“||I feel as if everything in the world is becoming more vivid. More clear. Could this be the proof I sought? Is this world, which must be a dream, somehow becoming more real? Or does it only prove that I, myself, am slipping away? Fading even faster than the world around me.||„|

Frédéric François Chopin (フレデリック・フランソワ・ショパン Furederikku Furansowa Shopan), or simply known as Frederic. is a renowned composer & pianist and one of the main protagonists of and the hidden final boss in the 2007 video game Eternal Sonata. In the world of his dreams, he meets Polka, a young girl with an incurable illness, who is the same age his younger sister Emilia was when she died of tuberculosis. Chopin adventures with his companions in search of answers in a world which is slowly becoming his new reality. He was voiced by Mitsuaki Madono in Japanese and English dubbed by Patrick Seitz. He is based on the real-life genius musician of the same name.
Frederic is a composer, a pianist, and a bit of a romanticist born in a village in Warsaw. His fame through the piano rose at an early age, and his skills even allowed him to perform a rondo at the age of 14. During the Polish November 1830 Uprising, he settled in Paris and made a living as a composer and a pianist teacher. He also became acquainted with George Sand, a woman with an odd, masculine appearance, and the two have been close friends to his death.
On his deathbed, where he lies as the illness, supposedly tuberculosis, continues to weaken his little life left, he begins to dream a world of fantasy, with swords, magic, and monsters all in harmony with the plays of music. After confronting Polka, who also has a disease that shortens her life, in the dream's world, he decides to support her, as well as the party, while he tries to understand the true nature of his dream.
His weapon of choice is a conductor's baton. There is also power within his melodies!
