The Schwann Brigade, led by Raven (also known as Schwann Oltarin) from Tales of Vesperia, is one of the four squads of nights working for the Empire, the ruling body of the world.. The four sqauds themselves are led by Schwann, Cumore, Flynn, and Alexei. The Schwann Brigade follows the player throughout the entire game trying to catch the main protagonist, Yuri Lowell for various crimes. You see plenty of knights from this brigade (usually dressed in an orange uniform which looks similar to Schwann's) but only three characters besides the captain himself ever make themselves known to you. Adecor, Boccos, and Leblanc.
