Van is half human and half Draconian, making him a descendant of the Atlantians. He is the king of Fanelia which is destroyed by the Zaibach.

He is able to manifest angelic wings due to his Draconian blood from his mother.

Escaflowne and Van


The Escaflowne was created by the Ispano and can transform into a flying dragon. It can only be piloted through a blood pact, meaning if the Escaflowne receives damage, so does the pilot. If it is destroyed, Van will die.
