Trauare Wrede [RKS004 Vier] (トラウアーレ・ヴレーデ, Torauaare Vureede; pronounced Trou-ar Fred-a), also commonly referred to as Trau (トラウ, Torau) by her friends, is the fourth member of the RKS. She is the wielder of the Chaos Spear, Leviathan, and is Zorne Zeppelin's closest friend. Her personality, along with her unintentionally flirty mannerisms, have earned her the nickname of "the Siren".


In Rosenkreuzstilette, Trauare wears a blue competition swimsuit with light blue linings and a small white coat. On her right hand is a blue glove that covers her wrist and middle finger with a green gem on the back. Trauare has short light blue hair with a seashell pinned on her hair and turquoise-blue eyes. Her main weapon of choice is the Chaos Spear, Leviathan.

In Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel, Trauare now wears a dark blue Chinese dress over her swimsuit with a light blue rose cross in between the cleavage of her dress. She also has a blue glove on her right hand that covers her entire hand with a larger green gem on the back of it. She also wears blue socks and small brown shoes.

Trauare has given her friend, Zorne, a competition swimsuit with an simliar appearence, although Zorne's swimsuit is colored differently, black with red linings, as opposed to Trauare's blue with cyan linings.


"You're better off forgetting what you can't change. Sorry, but this is the end of the line for you!"
—Trauare Wrede, Rosenkreuzstilette

Trauare is a composed and pragmatic young woman who conceals her immature tendencies. She often carries an uninterested look on her face whenever she makes a point to whatever is being asked of her. Trauare is quite vindictive and will stop at nothing to exact revenge once she has been aggravated. She also has a temper much worst than that of her friend, Zorne. Trauare loves to swim and often invites Zorne to swim at a ravine during their free time.


Trauare has abilities somewhat similar to Freudia's; she can levitate a few inches of the ground and has the ability of self-duplication, but to a lesser extent than Freudia. Her signature ability, Klageharnisch, allows her cool the vapor in the air to produce water and turn it into whirlpools which she can propel them in multiple directions. Trauare can also spend more time underwater much longer than any ordinary human.

Pre-Zorne Events

The reason Trauare joined the RKS's rebellion was only just to show everyone that she was the best, and she wanted to beat Spiritia Rosenberg in battle. She mocked Spiritia, insulting her for taking Trauare to be a pacifist and accusing her of wasting her efforts, and wanted to prove to her once and for all that humans and Magi would never understand one another and that it was their fate to fight, and that nothing good would come of her friendship with Lilli. However, she was unable to defeat Spiritia, yet was pleased to be beaten - she complimented Spiritia and admitted to herself that it had been a while since she had a workout as good as that one. She knew that the world was filled with despair yet also knew that it would be worth it to hang on just a little longer. She was willing to join Spiritia in her quest to find a better way to make RKS's dreams a reality, and wanted to have another match with her when the incident was over. Spiritia happily complied and would accept her challenge any time.

Post-Zorne Events

Trauare would react to Spiritia more seriously if Zorne was beaten before her. She knew that there was too much sorrow in this world and believed that Spiritia couldn't change that no matter how hard she tried, but Spiritia knew that at least trying was better than doing nothing. Trauare then asks Spiritia if she knew just what she was doing, recounting how Zorne couldn't believe that she was defeated by the likes of her. Despite this, Spiritia was not willing to give up; she knew that it wasn't too late, claiming that if one gave it their all, they can change the world. Trauare grew annoyed with Spiritia's attempts to persuade her and vowed to finish her off. Ultimately, she was defeated, yet she was pleased with her defeat, knowing that Spiritia really didn't know when to quit. Spiritia admitted that she would rather regret what she did than what she didn't do. Trau laughed, admitting that there was no way Zorne could've taken her on and vowed to believe in Spiritia too. Trauare willing joined Spiritia's quest, and vowed to have a rematch against her once everything was said and done.

At the end of Rosenkreuzstilette, Trau greeted Spiritia on her triumphant return from her final battle against Iris Zeppelin alongside the other RKS members on a floating island.

Rosenkreuzstilette ~Grollschwert~

Pre-Zorne Events

In Rosenkreuzstilette ~Grollschwert~, Trauare wanted to best Grolla Seyfarth in battle. Trauare mocked Grolla for turning her back on them and siding with the "disgusting humans", and vowed to see whose weapon was greater - Trauare's Chaos Spear, Leviathan, or Grolla's Demon Sword, Grollschwert. Grolla defeated her, and Trauare complimented on her being a worthy opponent. She decided that she would believe Grolla's story and admitted that Zorne never liked Iris and wondered if Zorne was onto something.

Post-Zorne Events

Just like in Spiritia's story, the confrontation against Trauare will have different lines depending on whether or not Zorne has already been defeated. After Zorne's defeat and upon reaching Trauare, Trauare decided that, since Zorne was already bested by Grolla, Trauare would have to take it seriously. Not having figured Grolla to do something so pointless as betraying them and siding with the "disgusting humans", she vowed to see whose weapon was greater - Trau's Chaos Spear, Leviathan, or Grolla's Demon Sword, Grollschwert. Grolla defeated her, and Trau complimented on her being a worthy opponent. While she admitted that she was jealous that Zorne couldn't have beaten Grolla with "that kind of strength", she decided that she would believe Grolla's story for then. She also admitted that Zorne never liked Iris and wondered if she was onto something.

Boss strategy

Trauare starts by launching three Klageharnisch whirlpools at the player, which she does this twice. After her second Klageharnisch, she will lunge at the player with her spear, Leviathan, at the the player as her Klageharnisch approaches the player. Getting hit by Trauare herself is actually more lethal than her Klageharnisch whirlpools as a single hit by Trauare's spear (or getting hit by Trauare herself) can deal more than 1/3 of the player's HP worth of damage. When she reaches Desperation Mode, she will now send out six Klageharnisch whirlpools that cover more the area and when she lunges with Leviathan, she will create two clones will follow her as she lunges. To avoid this, the player would have to time their jumps so they can both avoid Trauare's whirlpools and her lunging attack, followed by sliding to avoid the first clone, then jumping over the second one.

Depending on the route the player took to reach Trauare, this battle can be easy or hard. With the upper route, the player has no fear of jumping into the spikes in the lower route, but will have a hard time dodging her attacks. With the lower route, dodging her attacks in the first phase of the battle is easy as long the player is careful not to jump too high or they will hit the spikes above them. Much like the original Mega Man character she was based on, her vulnerability is a shield-type attack, i.e. the Geisterwand.

Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~

Before the defeat of Zorne, Trauare meets Freudia on her way to battle against the Church. Freudia learns that Trauare is intending to drown the army of the Church as a whole and bids her to stop. Trauare becomes belligerent, finding no reason in listening to anyone other than Sichte. She attacka Freudia, but Freudia "cooled Trau's head down".

After the defeat of Zorne, Freudia comes across an enraged Trauare. She reveals that in the few months after the death of Count Zeppelin, Zorne become what Trauare describes as a "walking puppet", and attempted suicide multiple times, all of which were stopped by Trauare. Zorne was brought out of this miserable state by her anger at the Church army and her drive to destroy them. Trauare accuses Freudia of throwing her friend back into the pit of depression and attacks her. After Trauare is defeated, Zorne shows up and Trauare tells her that she will destroy anything that ever hurts Zorne. Zorne, to Trauare's surprise, tells her that she is fine. Trau smiles and concludes that "it looks I am the only one heating up here, like an idiot". Trauare and Zorne leave, and bidding Freudia good luck in bringing Spiritia back.

Freudia learns Kopiekreisel from Trauare.

Boss strategy

Trau has a simple pattern; she will call three small Klageharnisch tornadoes that come upward and then hurl them at the player before calling three more Klageharnisch tornadoes and have them home in on her. She will then use her fully-charged Klageharnisch attack and call forth a giant water pillar that will create a wind that drags the player towards it, and after that, she will do a small hop and lunge at the player with her Leviathan, after which she will repeat the same pattern. Once in Desperation Mode, she will raise the water to fill almost the whole screen. From here, if Zorne has not yet been defeated, Trauare will call her in for a Unity attack consisting of five heart-shaped bombs that appear at Freudia's position. Once that attack is finished, or if Zorne has already been defeated, Trau will swim up and fire a slash effect at the player before swimming to the other side to fire another slash effect, and then swim back to the other side and fire one more slash effect. She'll then summon a water pillar and call forth four Cheep-Cheeps that will home in on the player while the water pillar drags the player towards it. Trau will then swim upward and create a current that forces several Needles and ice blocks towards the player. Luckily, the ice blocks cannot crush the player even if they manage to push her between themselves and the wall. After the current is finished, Trau will lunge forward with her Leviathan and repeat the same process. Also, assuming that Zorne hasn't been defeated yet, Trau can call Zorne and they can perform their unity attack where Zorne will place several heart-shaped Zornesbombes at the positions of wherever the player goes, detonating them a few seconds afterwards one at a time.

Trau's weakness is Eislanze, which is learned from Luste Teuber.

Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~


  • Trauare's name is derived from the word "Trauer," meaning "sorrow" or "sadness" in German. Her family name, "Wrede," comes from Klaus-Jürgen Wrede, the German game designer responsible for the well-known Carcassonne series of games.
    • According to WOMI, the similar bikinis that are being worn by Luste and Tia in an artwork featuring the two of them were actually gifts from Trauare, which happens to be a nod to the fact that Wrede is a fan of Uwe Rosenberg and Klaus Teuber. Luste never realized that she sent them lingerie instead of complete outfits, and the reason why Trau never bothered correcting Luste was because she thought the result would be hilarious, suggesting that "a world filled with sorrow" could use a laugh or two "at the expense of an airhead".
  • Trauare Wrede is a large reference to Fairy Leviathan from Capcom's Mega Man Zero series. Her hair-style resembles Leviathan's helmet and they both use pole-arms as their weapon of choice. Trauare's spear also happens to be named after Fairy Leviathan.
    • Though Trauare's appearance resembles Fairy Leviathan from the Mega Man Zero series, she mainly uses an attack pattern similar to Air Man from Mega Man 2 in Rosenkreuzstilette.
  • Trauare's dress in Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~ bears a slight resemblance to Fairy Leviathan's jacket.
  • In Rosenkreuzstilette, Trauare will often remove her coat that she often wears around her one-piece swimsuit before battle.
  • Trauare's stage in Rosenkreuzstilette is one of two stages in the game to split into two different paths, the second being Zeppelin Stage 4 where the player meets Michael Zeppelin.
  • In Rosenkreuzstilette, one of her pre-battle quotes is a reference to one of Jet Stingray's pre-battle quotes, "Maybe the jellyfish can put up a better fight?", in Mega Man X4. Both quotes reference how dangerous jellyfish are due to the poisonous barbs that cover their bodies, and the fact that even dead jellyfish can still kill those who touch their barbs, which implies that even the dead stand a better chance against them than the player character.
  • In one of the screenshots from the Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~ April Fool's site, Zorne and Trauare are shown teaming up against Freudia Neuwahl.
  • In Trauare's profile on Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~, as well as one of the preview images of Fukurou no Youni - Himawari, her first name is misspelled as Trauere. The spelling error on Trauare's profile in Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~ was later fixed when [erka:es] redesigned the official site.
  • During the first phase of her fight in Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~ in addition to straight projectiles she'll also throw three upward that home in on the player before dashing across the screen, a very similar pattern was used by Top Man in Mega Man 3.
  • Her Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~ attack where she sends several Needles and ice blocks flying towards the player is quite similar to an attack used by Duff McWhalen in Mega Man X5.
