Schiller is a man who ultimately cares very deeply for his family, but is not used to expressing his feelings.
Schiller met his wife Crescent and fell in love with her. During their adult life, they traveled around Apple Federation together, witnessing both the good and bad parts of the country. For her, he designed the White Blossom, considered his most prized work, and presented it to her in Welton's City Square. He incorporated Eris' Kiss, Apple's biggest diamond, in the design of the dress.
In or around this year, Schiller's daughter Kimi was born. For the next few years, he and Crescent raised her together and taught her to be independent. From an early age, she expressed the desire to be a designer as good as Schiller.
Together as a family, they went every year to the Children's House in Welton, spending Christmas there volunteering.
Crescent fell ill during this year with what most people assumed to be a common cold, but it turned out to be an incurable, lethal virus that even the doctors of Welton did not know how to treat.
Researchers from the Rousse Group stole a blood sample from Crescent and used it to develop a cure, then brought it to Schiller at the Apple Apparel Group building. They openly negotiated with Schiller, telling him that they would like the Eris' Kiss in return for the cure that would save his wife. They also wanted to gain access to his treasure vault, where the White Blossom was stored.
Schiller refused at first, but his wife continued to get sicker and sicker, and even started to have nightmares that he could not save her from. She fell into a deep sleep and did not wake up for a long time. Despite all of the support they might have had, he despaired that he would not be able to save her without the cure.
Rin, Crescent's best friend and a researcher from the Rousse Institute, approached Schiller and told him that she would steal the medicine from the group for Crescent. Schiller felt hopeful and did everything he could to help her, but ultimately she was unsuccessful and found herself subjected to a smear campaign and jail. Schiller had to face the fact that without giving up Eris' Kiss, he would be unable to save Crescent, so he took it from the dress and began to take it to the Rousse Group.
Right as he was about to do so, Crescent awoke and called Schiller from the hospital. She wanted to wear the White Blossom once more. Schiller did not want to say no, so he brought the dress and the diamond back to Crescent and had her wear his design once more, though she was so thin it no longer fit. With both the White Blossom and Eris' Kiss, they went to City Square in Welton one last time, and afterwards they replaced the dress in the vault.
She passed away three days later. Schiller attended the funeral, but left early to say goodbye to White Blossom once more. Upset that his lifetime love had been ended, he began to feel that life was meaningless. Just then, six-year-old Kimi came to him and told him of her promise to protect him.
During this year, Schiller found himself facing financial issues with the Apple Apparel Group. He had to withdraw designs, and people began to speculate that he had lost his touch as a designer. However, he refused to show weakness in front of his daughter Kimi, who was attending design school herself, or to let her help him at the expense of her education.
Schiller found himself being threatened again for the Eris' Kiss and White Blossom. He Schiller stops attending Board of Directors meetings. He willingly goes to Losol and gives up White Sakura to Nidhogg, Reid, and the Tyre Coalition after being threatened (?). Charles takes over the position from him.
Reid hires the Phantom Thief family (probably not needed on this page but just for posterity) to steal the White Blossom during the Banquet (I guess this is so that it looks like it is an accident). Kimi probably was not supposed to interfere but she does anyways trying to get the White Blossom back. Charles didn't know about the plan either I suppose.
Kimi and Orlando and Nikki go to Losol to track him down and Orlando seems to have found him.
Talk about their lifelong love.
Kimi's promise to Schiller and her care for him. His willingness to protect her and for her to focus on her studies.
- "We cannot change the whole world, but change one person's life is also making the world better."
- "Be patient, Kimi. All great designers go through a long journey of learning and growth in their works."
