Encyclopaedia Entry

Orta

Orta

Orta, the protagonist of Panzer Dragoon Orta, was a girl who knew very little about the world or her own past, as she had been imprisoned by the Seekers for as long as she could remember. Orta did not know that she was in fact half drone/half...

Literature

Orta's Father Theory

The common belief is that Orta's father was Edge, the main character from Panzer Dragoon Saga. But do we really know this for sure? Azel may have used Craymen's DNA instead, as suggested in this theory.

Orta's Purpose

We don't know what the future has in store for Orta, but she must remain open to any possibility. The world may need Orta even more than she needs the world.
