Milan Color 1

Milan Flare (ミラン フレアー Miran Fureā) is one of the playable characters in Golden Axe: The Duel.


Milan Flare is the princess of the kingdom of Windwood, and descendant of Tyris Flare, who helped defeat Death Adder long ago. She is also the protector of the kingdom, and relies on wind magic to battle her adversaries. Though a bit young and brash, she takes her role of protector seriously and has won the confidence of her people.

The kingdom of Windwood is the most scientifically advanced of all the provinces. It is a prized jewel for many would-be leaders who could use the power of the winds. Should Milan win, the Golden Axe would be used to ensure that Windwood does not fall to foreign invaders.

"Well done, Princess! I had never dreamed of coming across the Golden Axe again in my life time."

"Well done, Princess! You have saved Windwood and acquired the Golden Axe as well."
"Was there ever any doubt, my friend? I am, after all, a wind mage and sword master."


"After all, I'm not that bad, huh?"
"It's a bit early to be so confident. The trial of your life has just begun."
"Yes, you are right I guess. But as long as we have this axe, we can all live in peace."

"Ha, ha. Always the overconfident one, aren't you, Milan? Do not celebrate too early, for the real test is yet to come. The Golden Axe is a prize of great power, and great responsibility."
"Yes, perhaps you are right. I will use the axe to protect my Kingdom, but I must be careful not to misuse it. My people are counting on me."
"Now then, shall we go?"
