Lloyd. ''[[TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld Dawn Of The New World]]'' seems to try and make up for this by making him the GuestStarPartyMember that sticks with Emil and Marta the longest.



* ShipTease: With Raine in the sequel. It's PlayedForLaughs, since the "love letter" she gives him is actually just [[spoiler: her theory about Emil's true identity.]] It doesn't stop Marta from shipping them anyway.



* DarkMessiah: He sets himself up as this, believing that everything he is done is necessary in order to save the world from its inevitable destruction. Judging from what happens in the sequel and VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia, he's not entirely wrong.



* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: With the Exception of Rodyle, who is a DirtyCoward.

to:

* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: With ZigZaggged. Most of them are the Exception strongest of the Desians, except for Rodyle, who is a DirtyCoward.DirtyCoward. However, it is implied that Forcystus is actually stronger than Pronyma, but she is the leader due to some off-screen plotting.



* DarkActionGirl

to:

* DarkActionGirlDarkActionGirl: She's the only female of the Desian Grand Cardinals.



* PeekABangs
* RecurringBoss

to:

* ArmCannon
* ArtificialLimbs
* BlowYouAway

to:

* ArmCannon
ArmCannon: It shoots out gusts of wind. He also uses it as sort of a giant metal club.
* ArtificialLimbs
ArtificialLimbs: His left arm has been replaced by a cannon. It is either this or a guantlet-like accessory. Given that he's also lost his eye, it's probably the former.
* BlowYouAwayBlowYouAway: His attacks are wind-based and he's adept at wind magic.



* EyepatchOfPower

to:

* EyepatchOfPowerEyepatchOfPower: It probably alludes to his past as a half-elven hero.



* NobleDemon: He's the only Grand Cardinal who ''doesn't'' go out of his way to provoke the village he's overlooking and honours the non-aggression treaty until he has reason to believe that Iselia has violated it. It's also discovered posthumously that he was a defender and champion of his people.
** That said, it's implied that the [[PragmaticVillainy real reason]] he didn't antagonize Iselia [[spoiler: was so that Colette could grow up unharmed to continue the ViciousCycle Yggdrasill has in motion.]]

* BloodKnight
* BoisterousBruiser
* TheBrute

to:

* BloodKnight
BloodKnight: He's the most violent of the Grand Cardinals. In stark contrast to Forcystus, who leaves his area alone unless provoked, he's more than willing to kill the citzens of Palmacosta with his bare hands.
* BoisterousBruiser
BoisterousBruiser: He's got the other Grand Cardinals beat in the volume department, that's for sure.
* TheBruteTheBrute: Despite his power, he's at the bottom rung of the Grand Cardinal's hierarchy. His role seems to be to supply the raw power to keep Palmacosta in line.



* DumbMuscle

to:

* DumbMuscleDumbMuscle: He's plenty strong, but he's not very smart. Rodyle manipulates him with a minimal amount of effort.



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When he realizes that Rodyle used him, he doesn't take it very well

* SlouchOfVillainySlouchOfVillainy: He's got a pretty impressive one going on when the party catches up with him in his ranch.



* EvenEvilHasStandards: His own underlings pull this on him.

to:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: His own underlings pull this on him. He's even considered the cruelest of the Five Grand Cardinals, which is ''really'' saying something.



* EyesAlwaysShut

to:

* EyesAlwaysShutEyesAlwaysShut: His sprite has a perpetual squint. In the OVA, this is changed to having very narrow eyes with black sclera.



* MadScientist
* [[spoiler:PosthumousCharacter: Somewhat. He's alive at the game's beginning but you don't find out ''quite'' how far the depths of his depravity go until after you've killed him.]]
* ShockAndAwe
* SmugSnake
* SquishyWizard

to:

* MadScientist
MadScientist: He seems to be responsible for the Desian's scientific research. Which naturally means he kills humans by the dozen for the sake of science.

* SmugSnake
SmugSnake: You'll find yourself wanting to punch him in the face in every scene he's in.
* SquishyWizard SquishyWizard: He relies on magic to a much greater extent than the other Grand Cardinals. His only physical attacks involve him ineptly bashing his opponent with his staff.



* DishingOutDirt

to:

* DishingOutDirtDishingOutDirt: Most of his attacks are non-elemental, but the once that do have an element are Earth-based.

* GigglingVillain
GigglingVillain: Madly giggling is almost a second language for him.
* MadScientist
MadScientist: He's the one responsible for the Desians' Exsphere technology. Then, of course, is his hobby of human experimentation, which really messes with Presea's life.
* ManipulativeBastard
ManipulativeBastard: He's playing ''everybody'', from Lloyd's group to the other Desians. [[spoiler: Ironically, he himself was manipulated by the Renegades into building the Mana Cannon, and Pronyma tricks him into killing himself by giving him a defective Cruxis Crystal.]]

* GutturalGrowlerGutturalGrowler: It almost sounds like a very gruff whisper.



* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Noishe acts like a ordinary dog, but he's not. Through a number of skits and one side-quest, you find out that Noishe is actually a creature known as a Protozoan, supposedly the first creature to have been born on the planet. It evolves during the course of its own life, starting off as a single-celled organism, then a fish, then a bird, then the dog-like form, then 'another' form, then finally a human that fights evil. It is also said that Noishe himself (possibly in his previous form) accompanied Mithos and Co. on their journey 4000 years ago.

* DeadpanSnarker
* DespairEventHorizon: Part of his backstory.

to:

* AntiHero
AntiHero: He opposes the Desians, but his methods are so harsh that he's an antagonist for most of the game. In fact, some of his acts come close to outright villainy.
* {{Badass}}
{{Badass}}: You get a good taste of this during your boss fight with him, as he's by far the most difficult opponent up to that point that isn't a HopelessBossFight.

* GoodIsNotNice: While his goals match those of the party, he still is a jerk to them even when he's not [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor fighting them]] and his methods are more [[WellIntentionedExtremist morally ambiguous]].
