Uni03 Battles are cruel…? The words of pansies with no strength. You can only curse your own weakness!
~ Waldstein


Waldstein is a playable character in Under Night In-Birth. Waldstein was one of the members of Licht Kreis until he met Kuon, a member of Night Blade in which Waldstein then joined. There he met Linne, the Princess of the Night Blade. When Night Blade fell apart Waldstein followed Linne and listened to her every order. One day Linne took a high schooler by the name of Hyde under her wing. Linne and Waldstein trained Hyde to be able to survive in the Hollow Night until eventually Linne left on a mission to fight someone named Paradox. Linne ordered Waldstein to serve as a distraction to Paradox's minions. Waldstein did so, until he eventually entered Paradox's lair upon noticing that Linne hadn't come back.

Waldstein is a battle driven man who has lived for much longer than Linne. He often spews out information without thinking and fights for almost no reason. However, Waldstein is very caring for Linne and listens to her every order.
