Rascel (aka Racel) has been released via events for both Singapore and North America servers.
[NA] Playtime Event for Rascel (Feb 05-20, 2013)
Accumulate 600 event points to get [Rascel] Character Card. You get 1 point per 10 minutes of being in-game. So that is 100 hours of AFK... There were some problems with the time tracking [Source], but it was fixed on Feb 13 [Source].
[SG] Anxious Rascel (Feb 07-Mar 07, 2013)
Talk to Rascel in Kielce for a daily random quest. Complete it 25 times to get [Rascel] Character Card. This is similar to the event for Taiwan servers during July 2012 (see 支援前線). The main complaint seems to be that you can only miss 3 (28-25) days before being disqualified from getting the character. See forum discussion here.
[NA/SG] Valentine's Day Event
Talk to Marie every day to start an event mission. Simply run all the way to the left end of the map without getting hit too often. The reward is 10 Failed Chocolates (HP/SP regen potion). Recommended to use Emilia (MCC1) to buff [Accelerate] and fly over using [Darkness] stance. The event lasts until Feb 20 (NA) or Feb 21 (SG). See Marie Needs A Valentine and Feb 06, 2013 Patch Notes.
