Kald Lau is a character in Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey.

Kald is a calm and composed historian from the Symbol People. Due to the pranks his sister would play on him, he has a phobia of women. This doesn't seem to apply to Annelies Exner or those of child-like stature like Firis.


Kald is a historian that Firis and Liane encounter in a ruin near Flussheim and Dona. He is a playable party member and, like the other playable characters, has his own ending. It's necessary to complete Atomina and Meklet's questline to continue with Kald's events at higher friendship values.

The Symbol People have recorded the history of others for ages, but Kald comes to wonder about their own history, which hasn't been recorded. With Firis' help he is able to find out about his ancestor, who was Plachta and Luard's student and friend 500 years ago. The two are also similar enough in apperance that Plachta mistook him for her student at one point.

In Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings, Firis and Ilmeria discuss what he might be up to, and figure he's probably still on his journey recording history.



Kald uses a gun as his primary weapon, and staves and daggers as secondary weapons.


He can equip light and medium armors.
