He tends to have a flexible view on things and can offer up unique ideas and insights easily. He joined the Knights as a common soldier but became one of the Six Mighty Knights at the behest of Knight Commander Galahad, who had observed Percival's skills on the field of battle. After being one of the mighty knights, he became a rival of Borus Redrum but eventually the two forged a bond as comrades.

During the War of the Champions, Percival fought valiantly and bravely, without losing his cool, contributing greatly to the cause of the Fire Bringer. Following the war, Percival returned to his home village before rejoining the knights when war broke out, his skills as sharp as ever.
