Larc (ラルク Raruku) is a major character from the Dragon story arc of Legend of Mana. A beast-warrior who was once hailed as a famous hero, Larc is the brother of Sierra, the dragoon guardian of Vadise. Following his death, Larc became the dragoon of Drakonis, a fell dragon who was sent to the Underworld after being defeated by the joint strength of Akravator, Jajara and Vadise. Larc, alongside the Hero/Heroine, spends the duration of the Dragon story arc serving Drakonis' ambition to usurp control of the Mana Stones from his arch nemeses and thereafter be restored to his former strength.
Larc is first encountered when the player interacts with the tombstone without any NPCs in the party and he suddenly brings them into the Underworld. He introduces himself, asking the player to follow him down through the Underworld. After they successfully survived through Hitodama's assault, the Dragoon is impressed of the player's strength and they are warped to the Pulpit of Eternal Flame.
Portrayed as an individual who is rash and impetuous, Larc is known to be rather reckless in the decisions that he makes. Most telling of this fact is through his decision to serve as Drakonis' dragoon; despite being aware of Drakonis' inclination to be a crafty, cunning person of dubious, questionable leanings, he chooses to serve the man nevertheless, under the pretext of being granted the power to escape the shackles of the Underworld. It is possible that this aspect of Larc's character could have been the principal cause of his death prior to the events of Legend of Mana.
It is through the same decision that Larc makes that one can discern that he is in fact a family-oriented person, one who deeply values kinship. His defeat in The Crimson Emperor reveals this, as just before he breathes his last, he admits that his main intention of serving Drakonis is all so that he can be granted a second lease at life to be reunited with his sister Sierra.
