The past is the past. My love and dedication to those dear to me shall remain unchanged.
- —Sharon's intro quote, Trails of Cold Steel III
I have a shred of neither mercy nor compassion for you left in me. I’ll cut you down right where you stand.
I, Sharon, am eagerly looking forward to seeing you.
Sharon Kreuger is a major character in The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel tetralogy. She is the Reinford family's maid and the personal secretary to her master, the CEO, Irina Reinford. She was later sent from her boss's orders to become dorm manager of Student Dormitory 3 at the Thors Military Academy, and has the utmost respect of Alisa as an older sister figure.
In the Trails of Cold Steel series, Sharon's appearance remains unchanged. A dark violet maid's outfit with a white apron, brown boots, and waist chord.
In Trails of Cold Steel, Sharon displays herself as a humble and cheerful woman, devoted entirely to her work for the Reinford family. She never makes any objections to orders given by Irina, and rarely finds herself conflicting with Alisa. Her devotion to the Reinfords is so great that anybody who allies with them she also devotes her service to, as seen with Class VII. Sharon also tends to tease Alisa about her relationships with others, as well as say various things to Alisa to make her feel embarrassed, most notably, bringing up her relation with Rean.
A maid whose multitasking abilities reach no end, yet her background remains extremely secretive before she came into the Reinford family's services. Until the break-out of the Civil War, she reseals herself as an Ouroboros Enforcer, though she does show levels of sadism towards her enemies. When asked about her position in the society, she claims that she's "on leave" from that position, and will not waver from her devotion to the Reinford family. For her, this has not caused a conflict of interest in the story as of yet.
Sara Valestein is the only character who Sharon displays a hint of hostility towards due to her already knowing her real background. though this interaction is mild passive-aggressive behavior from both parties. Despite this, Sharon and Sara tend to get along on the battlefield, though Sara remains highly suspicious of Sharon's day-to-day activities, due to Sharon's allegiances with Ouroboros.
