Posted on Updated on

Rouge et Noir OFFICIAL DATA FILE

Everyone also gets character profiles in the ODF, where they’re interviewed by the other characters. In Arlen’s case, he gets interviewed by Suou with a cameo by Senna.

Here we go!

Character Profile

[SENNA]: “… OK. Preparations are complete with this. Can you hear me?”

[ARLEN]: “Yes, there’s no issue.”

[SUOU]: “… Hey, Senna. What the hell’s this?”

[SENNA]: “Ahaha, please don’t look so scary, Suou-san. I was just asked by a certain person to connect you and him for a little bit.”

[SUOU]: “Who and where is this person?”

[SENNA]: “It’s a secret no matter who you are, Suou-san. Anyway, please keep this place peaceful. If you don’t then we can’t continue.”

[ARLEN]: “It’s what Senna has said. For now, why don’t we make this place a temporary cease-fire? Eiji Suou.”

[SUOU]: “… Hah, fine.”

[SENNA]: “Ah, by the way, this communication is a hidden circuit going through a foreign country and so the security is perfect. Wiretaps or signal traces are impossible, so please don’t worry.”

[ARLEN]: “Then, once again, let us begin.”

[SUOU]: “Jeez, stop managing everything… Name and occupation.”

[ARLEN]: “Arlen Clive. My occupation is—“

[SUOU]: “Real one. Your real name.”

[VAN]: “… Van Clive. It’s unclear whether this will answer the occupation you’re asking about, but I’ll answer like this for now. My position is the Pit Boss of House.”

[SUOU]: “In short, a criminal though.”

[VAN]: “I won’t deny that.”

[SUOU]: “Next. Tell us your birthday, age, zodiac, and blood type.”

[VAN]: “I was born on December 25, 1986. I’m 35 years old at the time of the series’ third volume, Double Down. I’m a Capricorn and type O.”

[SUOU]: “Shit’s an O too, huh.”

[VAN]: “Oh my, an unexpected common point.”

[SUOU]: “I’m not happy at all about it though.”

[VAN]: “I agree.”

[SUOU]: “Let’s hurry on to the next. Birthplace and family members.”

[VAN]: “I was born in Arlington County, Virginia, in the United States of America. My father is a common businessman and my mother is a teacher. I haven’t contacted them in many years, but both of them are in good health… My younger twin has already died.”

[SUOU]: “… I see. Next is a simple history.”

[VAN]: “I majored in linguistics and psychology at a private university. I worked for a few years in the legal field after graduating, then studied criminology and criminal psychology in graduate school. After completing that I entered the FBI, but now I’m as you know.”

[SUOU]: “If you think about it normally, your history and age doesn’t match up well. Did you skip grades?”

[VAN]: “Yes, I graduated from university at 20 years old. It’s common in my home country.”

[SUOU]: “Ah, I see. Next, your height and weight.”

[VAN]: “6 feet and 1.62 inches. 160.94 pounds.”

[SUOU]: “As if I’d understand that!”

[VAN]: “Oh, let’s see… Expressed in Japanese, it’d be 187 centimeters and 73 kilograms, I believe.”

[SUOU]: “Should’ve done that from the start. Next, hobbies.”

[VAN]: “Reading and appreciating movies. In particular, I prefer old movies.”

[SUOU]: “… That’s surprisingly normal.”

[VAN]: “I don’t know how you see me, but by nature I’m an unremarkable and boring man.”

[SUOU]: “Next, skills?”

[VAN]: “Speed reading. That and, given my old job, I can use several languages, including Japanese, without any difficulties.”

[SUOU]: “If you had such a fine history and skills, it would have been peaceful staying in the FBI.”

[VAN]: “I have no regrets. More importantly, could we continue?”

[SUOU]: “I told you to stop managing things. Next seems to be your favorite smoke.”

[VAN]: “Diamante 10 millilters. I don’t smoke in front of women though.”

[SUOU]: “… Pretentious prick. Next, favorite car.”

[VAN]: “The one I’m usually driven around in by Gilles is a black Audi A8. The one I personally own is an Astin Martin Vanquish, silver colored.”

[SUOU]: “Having a driver means you’ve got some status.”

[VAN]: “Don’t you also make your subordinates drive the official vehicles? It’s the same thing.”

[SUOU]: “Don’t lump me with you… Next, your favorite gun?”

[VAN]: “I like to use the S&W Model 29, 4 inch.”

[SUOU]: “… You walk around with a dangerous thing.”

[VAN]: “Given my job, there’s many dangers.”

[SUOU]: “You reap what you sow. Anyway, that question just now was the last one.”

[VAN]: “I see. Well then, I should take my leave now.”

[SUOU]: “Don’t forget, Van Clive, the next time we meet there won’t be this cease-fire bullshit.”

[VAN]: “I know, Eiji Suou. I look forward to the day when the claws of Port and Harbour’s Eagle Eye come for my throat.”

[SUOU]: “Yeah, just wait and see.”

[SENNA]: “… OK. Communication complete successfully. Good work, Suou-san.”

[SUOU]: “Good work my ass, Senna. Come here!”

[SENNA]: “Wha!? Why is it like this!? I just—“

[SUOU]: “Shut up! I’m gonna lecture you!!”

      The general pattern is an interviewer and interviewee or else they’d run out of space to include everyone chatting |D;; but yeah Kurusu has an eternal grudge against Arlen, so there’d be no peaceful talking if it was him.
