|“|| A narcissistic disciple who fights with twin swords. Though he possesses supreme confidence, he’s actually quite dumb. Every bit of trivia he reveals is wrong, and his mistaken information constantly annoys his companions.
Cent is a suave, good-looking Disciple who acts like he is always in control, but in reality is a compulsive liar who constantly makes things up to seem intelligent and powerful. He wields two blades as his weapons. While he was able to trick Two into thinking he was smart, this led to her downfall when he accidentally misused her power.
Drag-On Dragoon Utahime Five
Like the other Apostles, Cent was created by Zero in an attempt to control the flower's power for the Intoners she thought unstable (all but One). She created them from birds who happened to be near her. According to Drag-On Dragoon 3 Story Side, Zero didn't anticipate that the birds could take human form from the power they had borrowed from the flower and decided against creating any other servants.
Cent - The Jewel within My Palm
Drakengard 3: Chapter 0
Octa and the other disciples are presumed to be in Cathedral City during Zero's confrontation with her sisters.
After Mikhail's consumption of Three, Cent appears before Zero and her disciples with Two's Egregori. He snatches Mikhail from Zero and escapes to the Land of Sands. After Zero tracks down Mikhail, she goes on to face a comatose Two in the Land of Sands shrine. Cent implores Two to summon her angels to combat Zero. After Zero defeats Two's angels, Mikhail is attacked by a dying Egregori and in a fit of rage, immolates Two with a fireball. Following Two's death, Cent joins Zero as her latest disciple.
Upon arriving at the cathedral of Cathedral City to face off against One, Zero bids adieu to her disciples, turning Cent and the rest into doves and setting them free. Following Zero's death, the doves are later seen scurrying about by her corpse, flocking to Accord who vanishes as mysteriously as she appears.
Branch B: The Price
Branch C: Emesis
Cent follows Zero until his death at the hand of Two.
Branch D: The Flower
With Two dead, Cent decides to follow her wish to keep living. He somehow joins Zero at the start of the branch.
When he was serving Two, Cent dearly cherished her and wanted to dedicate everything to protecting her smile. He could remember past events with clarity as long as she was involved. He is a suave and perceptive realist who is well aware of his duties and surroundings. He sincerely wishes to devise a future which will please everyone. If he reunites with Two, he will be once again placed under her Intoner influences and will remember his former loyalty to her. He then conducts himself with the same composure from their past.
Cent is a noisy and dim-witted fool when he is traveling with Zero. Unable to comprehend anything complicated, he has a habit of calling himself an "idiot" as an excuse for his childlike simple-mindedness and selfishness. He tends to stress the last syllable of his words in an immature and sing-song style.
Character designer Kimihiko Fujisaka has said in a Famitsu interview that the disciples were not a main concern for the development team and their designs were approved rather quickly. Producer Takamasa Shiba remarked that they wanted three main male archetypes, and Cent fits the "pretty boy" category. Originally, his character was going to be a blood-thirsty sadist who would have a bloody nose while fighting. The scar on his chest was added to make Cent look like a reliable support character for a blood soaked Zero.
Jun Eishima, series's writer since Drakengard and author of the databook novels, is personally convinced that Taro Yoko despises any man more popular with the ladies than he. He said that "it would be the greatest" if Eishima successfully wrote the attractive Cent to be an utter idiot.
