Louis is the youngest child of the L. Bridget family, and Satellizer's younger half-brother, who used to sexually abuse her as a child during most of her childhood, leading to Satellizer's haphephobia. He is the heir of the L. Bridget Family.
AppearanceEditLouis appears to be a nice, well-dressed boy. He's described to be a gentleman. He has short blonde hair that covers some of his forehead. When outside of battle he wears nice business suits, but inside of battle he wears the standard uniform of a Limiter.
While around others, Louis comes off as a calm, collected, and rather friendly young man. When in private with Satellizer or Holly Rose, he shows his true nature. Louis is an arrogant, violent sadist who derives joy from abusing others, especially Satellizer. He is also a racist, as seen through his interactions with Kazuya Aoi.
Overall, his greatest desire is to "own" Satellizer. To that end, he plans and plots to keep Satellizer as his own personal object, stopping at nothing to accomplish this. As such, he uses Holly as a puppet to realize his ambition, as shown in the fight between Holly and Satella, he was depicted as having a rather psychotic and dominant personality, as he was still trying to order Satella around to be his lapdog again.
It is revealed that much of Louis' behavior towards Satellizer was the result of his mother's influence. Olivia despised Satellizer and her mother, and frequently reminded Louis that his half-sister was below him. Despite this, Louis did eventually come to care for Satellizer, shown when he would fiercely defend her from bullying and criticism. What little kindness he had for her quickly dissolved however, when she became disturbed by his physical affections.
During the E-Pandora Rebellion Arc, Louis appears to have stablized quite a bit in terms of personality. He expresses genuine, familial concern for Satellizer.
Louis is a psychopath by pretending to be nice, helpful, and calm to others, but inside of his mind, he's dangerous to his half-sister. He remorselessly harms her for not obeying him.
Before his first appearence in the series, Louis is shown through Satellizer's flashbacks. As a child he abused her both physically and emotionally. His reasons for abusing her at first is shown to be nothing more than regular bullying and a form of sadistic "love" and thinking of her as an inferior being.
Freezing: Pair Love StoriesEdit
Some time after Satellizer leaves to attend West Genetics, Louis is ordered by his father to volunteer to become a Limiter. He enrolls at Genetics England during the festival period. While admiring the band's performance, Louis strikes up a conversation with a nearby Pandora. She informs him that she is a junior, prompting Louis to apologize and introduce himself. When she comments on his family name, Louis laments that his name often causes problems. The Pandora questions Louis about his enrollment, and he states that his father simply told him to enroll as if he was a regular student. He expresses happiness at the prospect of freedom away from his family, but quickly becomes worried when told that he will be asked to pair with England's top Pandora. He begins to question what this mysterious Pandora is like, but is given ambigious answers. After expressing a willingness to partner with a Pandora he can trust, the pair are interrupted by the school's headmaster, who reveals that Louis' company is none other than the top-ranked junior in question. Shocked, Louis is formally introduced to Holly Rose and comments on her beauty.
Despite their awkward first meeting, Louis agrees to partner with Holly. He trains alongside her, and becomes well known for his skills. Afterwards, he asks Holly to join him for dinner, but annoys her somewhat due to focusing on their training. At dinner, Holly reveals that Louis is quite differernt from what she expected. Louis replies that his isn't, and adds that he's a coward who can't disobey his father. Louis admits that he is glad to have been sent to Genetics, as he would not have met Holly otherwise.
Following the 9th Nova Clash, Louis' thoughts begin to return to Satellizer. After being caught looking at a picture of his sister by Holly, Louis admits that he is pathetic. He explains that Satellizer had truly been a special person to him. Later that night, Louis sleeps with Holly and ignores her cries of pain at his rough handling. The next morning, he lends Holly his tablet. After she leaves, he briefly wonders if she had seen the abusive pictures he keeps of his time with Satellizer.
While on a walk through campus, Louis is approached by Holly. Due to her seemingly normal behavor, Louis assumes that she did not see anything. He becomes angered when she suggests he throw away all of his pictures of Satellizer due to receiving one of Holly. He attempts to brush aside her worries, but Holly refuses to back down. Dropping the act, Louis violently kisses Holly and admits his true nature to her. When Holly promises to remain with him anyway, he sadistically wishes her luck in changing him.

Louis reappears during Satellizer and Kazuya's vacation at Bali, where it is revealed he went to Genetics UK as a Limiter and was partnered with Holly Rose, who bears a striking resemblance to Satellizer. While his older sister Violet believes he has changed, in reality he hasn't and still retains his sadistic, ruthless personality and is still obsessive about Satellizer. Believing Satellizer is his property and that she only belongs to him, he tries to "reclaim" his sister by traumatizing her and showing her a video of one his abuses of her, and tells Kazuya to break off his relationship with Satellizer by calling him racial slurs. When that doesn't work, he calls both of them to a cliff with Holly where he shows Satellizer's scars of his abuse as proof that he owns her. However, Satellizer and Kazuya's love for each other is stronger, as they defiantly stand to him much to his disbelief as Satellizer manages to beat Holly. Unfortunately, he makes a fatal mistake of telling Holly that he doesn't love her and is only a replacement to his sister, which the latter proceeds to stab him and commit a double suicide with him, only for them to be saved by Satellizer.
After having a talk with Violet, Louis finally realizes that he can never love Satellizer the way Kazuya loves her now and finally gives her up, makes his peace with Kazuya and tries to repair his relationship with Holly.
11th Nova ClashEdit
- Main article: 11th Nova Clash
Louis and Holly Rose are assigned to Gengo Aoi and Su-Na Lee's squad as they prepare to put a halt to the E-Pandora Project. Enroute to the base, Louis and Holly discuss the situation and are teased by two Chevalier Pandora for their close relationship.
As Su-Na and Gengo take over the Alaska base command center, Louis and Holly arrest Marks Spencer pending an investigation. When Spencer expresses surprise at the L. Bridget's soft-heartedness, Louis smugly replies that his involvement is due to the interferrence of one "doting father". Louis then joins Holly on the battlefield as they engage the Type-S Nova. After the battle, Louis meets with Satellizer off-screen.
- Louis' Freezing field is noted to be strong while also possessing a large range.
- Louis is the only Limiter known to be proficient in hand-to-hand combat. While not necessarily a fighter, Louis is capable of defending himself against ordinary human opponents, as displayed in his fight with Kazuya.
Holly is Louis' Pandora partner. However unlike most Limiter/Pandora couples they do not share a mutual love at first hand, in fact Louis thinks of Holly as a mere replacement for Satellizer and treats her like dirt: at one point going so far as to rape her. It is not until after Holly's double suicide event that Louis realises what he has been doing over the years. He deeply apologises to Holly for his behaviour, at which they eventually start off with a new relationship.
Satellizer is Louis' older half-sister. Due to Olivia's resentment towards Noelle Alongrutch and her daughter she encourages Louis to mistreat his newly acquired sister and he does so blindingly. Eventually Louis comes to love Satella in a rather peculiar way, one which is not shared reciprocally to say the least. This is seen first hand at their reunion at the Bali Resort run by Violet. It is until after Holly's suicide scene, that Louis came to realise his deeds and that he changed his attitude towards Satella for the better.
At first Louis acted mature and friendly towards Kazuya, making Kazuya misunderstand Louis' true intentions and feelings towards him; which were completely contradictory to Louis' true feelings. In fact, Louis sees Kazuya as a hindrance towards his goal of recapturing Satella; he even goes so far as to completely beat up Kazuya for this. Much like his demeanour towards Satella after Holly's "scene", Louis also apologised to Kazuya and they now share an amicable relationship.
Violet is Louis' elder sister. He and Violet share a friendly family relationship, a relationship which has not changed during Louis' mistreatment of Satella, or Holly's suicide scene. Though she loves her brother, it did not keep her from harshly striking him when she found out about his abuse toward Satella.
Olivia is Louis' mother, and the main source of Louis' abuse of Satella. Olivia's resentment towards the Alongrutches lead up to Louis being manipulated by Olivia into thinking that Satella was just a mere "toy" to play with, at which Louis' twisted relationship with Satella started. Despite all of this Louis and Olivia themselves share a strong mother/son bond.
Howard is the father of Louis. In the Love Stories spin-off, Louis describes himself as a "coward who's afraid to disobey his father's orders", implying that his relationship with Howard is strained.
