Orie Ballardiae (Purifying Executor), is playable character and one of the supporting protagonists, from a seemingly secondary protagonist faction called Licht Kreis, in Under Night In-Birth and its updates. She returns in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle as one of the DLC playable characters.
Ten years ago, Orie Ballardiae saw her parents murdered at the hands of a Void who could communicate in human languages. Before she could meet that same fate, the Licht Kreis - now an all-female organization dedicated to hunting Voids - saved her as she awoke to her powers as an In-Birth. Since then, she was raised in an orphanage run by the group, and taught how to survive the Hollow Nights alongside her friends and teammates, earning the rank of 5th Executor in the process. Eventually, she was ordered to move to Japan to investigate the early movements of the Amnesia faction, and transferred into Hyde's school as cover, under her last name alias, “Harada”.
Upon becoming an Executor, Orie earned the Ruler, a rapier which she handles with equal parts grace and efficiency. Her EXS of Purity "Thanatos" is synced to the sword, allowing her to summon a spirit from it to fight alongside her.
- She shares a same Japanese Voice Actress as Ruby Rose.
- ”Ballardiae” is Orie's official last name according to French Bread, and is mistranslated in localized versions as "Valadier". This was soon followed by another Under Night characters, Muniel (Phonon the Chermeti’s whip-like snake weapon) and Lordrekia Light, whose last name are also mistranslated in localized versions, named “Moony” and “Wright” instead respectively.
