Loen (洛昂) is a character that appears in Shining Nikki.
Loen wears a red suit coat with gold trim over a white shirt. He also has white gloves and white pants with a leg holster. His blonde hair is windswept and he has grey-blue eyes.
His father being a military officer, Loen grew up among military circles.
Apple Federation Independence WarEdit
The Apple Federation Independence War started in the spring of year -11. Loen, then 13 years old, was living in the Apple city of Xibao. His father, a general of the Apple Federation Independence Army, bid him farewell on the train platform from which he would depart for war, leaving Loen in the care of the Wang family. The Wang family had two daughters. The eldest, Xueye, 17 years old, was also going to war and wore a uniform that Loen designed for her. The youngest, Hua, was still a little kid and upset to see her sister go.
Six months later, in the same train station, a news train brought Loen a letter from his father and Mr. Wang the news of his daughter's death, her gun, loaded with a lonely bullet, being returned to him. Loen's father was telling him that, with the upcoming winter promising to be one of the harshest yet, hope was delusional but the only choice of the soldiers. Meanwhile, Mr. Wang had broken down and Loen helped him to a nearby square. After an improvised debate between a handful of passersby — especially Ruosen, a young man who didn't answer to the call-at-arms — Loen started to nurture many doubts and questions about the Independence War.
By then, the evacuation of the citizens of Xibao towards the nation of Cloud had been ordered by the Military Headquarters but no man was available to take care of it. Later the same day, Loen managed to convince the conductor of the military train to let him do it, under the condition that he had to follow the list of citizens to the letter, and that he would be held responsible if any issue with the list arose later on. The next day, Ruosen tried to board the evacuation train despite not being on the list, since he had been called to war. But Loen didn't allow him onboard, and Ruosen resented him since. Hua, ignoring that her sister had passed, was worried that Xueye would not find them when she came back, but Loen soothed her and gave her a red flower. Loen himself wanted to go to the battlefront, so Mr. Wang offered him the lonely bullet as a memento of Xueye, and made him promise to come back. Loen showed the reluctant train conductor that he could handle a gun, and was allowed to board the train to the battlefront, determined to find the answers to his doubts and bring them back to the people of Xibao.
The Snow Eagle MajorEdit
During the Independence War, Loen got promoted to Major and was known as the Snow Eagle Major, illustrating himself as the hero who saved Apple Federation. During the war, he met Rodel and Leiden.
The Du Chu caseEdit
After the Independence War, the Snow Eagle Major disappeared. Five years later, in year -2, his war comrade Leiden, promoted Admiral, was detaining a dangerous criminal called Du Chu at the top of the Ministry of Defence Tower. Loen infiltrated the building incognito, wearing a hat and a mask, and, in a flash of golden hair, flying between the bullets like a bird, took Du Chu away in a helicopter. Admiral Leiden recognised him and decided not to give chase, stating that Loen still had the same eyes as when he was the Snow Eagle Major, and thus he trusted him.
Shining Nikki main storyEdit
When Nikki first came back to the Miraland of 680 years ago, Loen asked a police officer to detain her, despite the fact that she wasn't in trouble. The officer later complained to him, saying that he was scared about breaking the law, but Loen told him that changing the world was more important.
Later, he decided he wanted to meet Nikki after hearing she had the power of the designer's shadow. A woman approached Nikki and told her to meet him at the bar at 2 o'clock, and Nikki agreed to meet him there; however, the woman didn't think Nikki would actually show up, so she kidnapped Momo to make her show up.
Upset, Nikki went to the bar at the right time, and Loen appeared holding Momo. He told Nikki that he wanted to see her styling power, and they had a styling battle. It was clear to Nikki that he was a strong opponent, and she tried to summon Lierlide's designer's shadow to help her. After the battle, she fell asleep, and Momo yelled at Loen, asking what he had done to her. Loen told him simply that he didn't have anything to do with it. While Nikki slept, Loen told Momo that he would send Momo's kidnappers to the police and asked Momo to record what happened when Nikki woke up. On his way out the door, he turned and told Momo to be careful, as they were already being followed.
