!Joshua Radcliff Radcliffe (Voiced by YuuichiNakamura)



Male protagonist of ''Super Robot Wars Destiny'', usually called "[[InSeriesNickname Josh]]" for short, Joshua Radcliffe's an ex-soldier, having fought against the [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Zanscare Empire]] in the past, but currently goes onto testing HumongousMecha with adoptive sister Cliana Rimskaya. He has mixed feelings about his father Felio Radcliff: at one point, he dislikes him for being too much of a {{Workaholic}}; on the other hand, he respects him for the research he has done. Eventually, at a testing facility in the Antarctic, he gets attacked by [[Manga/GetterRobo the Invaders]] and is caught in the Ruina's plan to seal the Earth and destroy it. After learning the Ruina's appearance is indirectly caused by his father, Joshua swears to amend Felio's wrongdoings.

After learning the Ruina's appearance is indirectly caused by his father, Joshua swears to amend Felio's wrongdoings.



Joshua's biological father, the [[MadScientist amoral]], workaholic scientist Felio saw it fit to experiment on his adoptive daughter Cliana to further develop the Sympathia System, resulting in her SplitPersonality, leading to a rift between father and son. Stationed in the Antarctic as part "Re-Technologist", a corporation designed to excavate ruins, during a trip to the "Fabula Forest" beneath their South Pole facility, Felio accidentally opened an interdimensional gateway, allowing the Ruina to enter the world.

In contrast to his ''Destiny'' counterpart, Felio in the ''Second Original Generation'' is less of a {{Jerkass}}; for instance, he feels guilty of having put Cliana through the Sympathia System to test out its limitations. Although Cliana is more fond of him, Joshua believes his father neglects them more because of his research for Re-Technology.

The primary antagonists of ''Destiny'', this interdimensional race feeds on negative emotions: when they gather enough power, they can use it to annihilate a universe, and if they are around a CrapsackWorld...well, you can guess what happens. Led by Perfectio, they're brought to the universe by [[spoiler:Felio, who opened the gate to their world and they end up possessing him and his co-workers in ''Destiny'']]. In the ''Second Original Generation'', [[spoiler:with the exception of Felio (whom Perfectio possesses), the Ruina are born from Felio's memories and knowledge]]. The Ruina Generals, or "Melior Esse", are created by Perfectio from human hosts assisting him (the Melior Esse are instead {{Artificial Human}}s in the ''Second Original Generation'').

The Ruina General of Wind and pilot of the Studium, ventus is considered a defective Melior Esse amongst the Ruina and mostly abandoned by his peers. In ''Destiny'', Ventus exclusively appears if Cliana is the headlining protagonist of the game. While Ventus is potentially recruitable in ''Destiny'', by doing so, [[spoiler:players permanently lose Joshua and his HumongousMecha for the rest of the game]]. In the ''Second Original Generation'', Ventus is a more active Melior Esse: he is a control device used by the Ruina to harness negative waves around the world, acting as a form of "energy channeler" for Perfectio. Unlike his ''Destiny'' counterpart, Ventus [[HeelFaceTurn defects]] by default and joins the Steel Dragon Battle Group, as he believes Cliana has saved him from a life of nothingless and purposelessness. [[spoiler:To ensure Perfectio cannot enter Earth again, Ventus deliberately volunteers to seal Perfectio from the other side of the Cross Gate in the Fabula Forest]].

Like Ventus, players can recruit her, [[spoiler:but it renders Cliana leaving the party permanently for the rest of the game]]; in the ''Second Original Generation'', the HeelFaceTurn occurs regardless. In all appearances, Glacies is the only Melior Esse to have the strongest connection with a human, due to the Sympathia System in her Fabularis corresponding with the system in Joshua's machine, allowing both of them to share parts of their consciousness with each other. As she unwillingly interacts with Joshua more, she begins developing her own form of empathy and humanity, finally making the decision to live for Joshua's sake when she is discarded by the Ruina when they consider her budding emotions to be a sign she is "broken". At the end of the ''Second Original Generation'', Glacies stays with Joshua and Cliana to assist in the Federation's further research on the [[spoiler:Cross Gate in the Fabula Forest; however, Clifford estimates she has roughly three years to live due to her artifically-created body]].

* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: An incomprehensible cosmic abomination that channels itself through the body of a dangerously inquisitive scientist who accidentally opened the door to a dimension where it slumbered after having consumed several other worlds. It's in our world now, creating untold madness in its wake, feeding on humankind's despair, misery and hatred, while it grows strong enough to annihilate existence itself. Oh, and no matter how hard you try, you'll never be able to kill it, not even with all your technology and heroic resolve. Hmmm....so this is what [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft]] himself would have devised if he was asked to create a villain for a SuperRobot anime. And what the heroes fought was only just a small branch that was able to manifest into the world.
