Lloyd Bannings (ロイド・バニングス) is the leader of the Crossbell State Police Department's Special Support Section and the protagonist of Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki.

Background

Childhood

Born in S.1186, Lloyd lost his parents to an accident at the age of 3. From that moment onward, his brother Guy Bannings, a renowned and respected investigator for the Crossbell Police Department's First Division, became his most important role model.

Guy's death in S.1201 struck him hard, which forced Lloyd to move in with his uncle in Calvard. Determined to succeed his brother, he signed up for the Police Academy in Crossbell and graduated in S.1203. Part of his training at the Academy was survival training in the Knox Woodlands.

During this time, Lloyd was taught combat skills for his tonfa by Douglas, who served a Police Academy instructor at the time.

Investigator

In S.1204, Sergei Lou invited Lloyd to join the newly established Special Support Section in Crossbell. His strong sense of justice and deductive reasoning skills led his fellow members to elect him as their leader.

On October 24th, S.1204, Lloyd and the rest of the S.S.S are apprehended by the Crossbell Defense Force. After about a month in jail in Knox Prison, Lloyd escapes with help from cellmate Garcia Rossi. Zeit saves Lloyd from the pursuing Defense Force members and reveals himself as the Holy Beast, sharing Crossbell's complex history with him as they make their way to Tangram Hill. There he meets with Kevin Graham, Ries Argent and re-introduces Wazy himself as the ninth Dominion, supported by Abbas. With the flight capabilities of Wazy's Merkabah, Lloyd goes around the state to restore the S.S.S's formation and is granted the assistance of Rixia Mao in the process.

Occupation

During the Imperial occupation of Crossbell in S.1205-1207, Lloyd worked as a resistance member. On behalf of Cao Lee, Lloyd and Rixia Mao were tasked with backing up data from Orbal Network terminals in the Geofront. During the operation, Lloyd was confronted by Altina Orion and Rean Schwarzer, the latter of which was working as a special military officer of Crossbell's General Government.

Lloyd managed to hold off Rean long enough to backup the data, after which Rean summoned Valimar to destroy the computer as a whole. After formally introducing themselves, Rean allowed Lloyd to escape with the data.
