'''''Radiata Stories''''' is a [[RolePlayingGame role-playing game]] developed by [[Creator/TriAce tri-Ace]] and published by Creator/SquareEnix for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2. The game is notable for its large number of distinct [=NPCs=], each of whom have their own lives, lifestyles, jobs, personalities, homes, dialogues, and schedules. It makes for a much more realistic experience than the standard RPG towns populated with [[YouAllLookFamiliar eerily identical cookie cutter residents]] who [[WelcomeToCorneria say the same things ad inifinitum]], though the game is limited by the hardware into making the characters [[GroundhogDayLoop repeat the same list of activities every day, with a few exceptions.]]

** Similar could be said of [[spoiler: Ridley and Zane]]. As unfair as it is, humans apparently ''are'' to blame for the Algandars disease that's killing the elves and driving humans mad because they're killing dragons, i.e. the dragons of the World's Cosmic Order. Cairn killed the Water Dragon and then the Earth Dragon was killed defending the dwarves from the human's invasion of Earth Valley. If they ''don't'' hit the ResetButton then a different race is on the chopping block.

* BadAss: More than 150 of them! Well, not ''really'', but the guild leaders, such as Elwen, Kain, Curtis, and Nyx, certainly qualify.



* SaintlyChurch: The Oralcion Old Faction are interested in helping people. For example, Miranda fully heals Jack whenever he talks to her, for free.

The final straw for him was when he failed to protect Ridley from the silver dragon; even after avenging her, he is grief-stricken and leaves his home in Radiata behind.]]

** [[spoiler: In the non-human path, Ganz is so shocked by his father's death that he chooses to stay in the Gold Dragon's castle as it collapses, knowing full well that it will kill him. It is also possible his departure in the human path is this; since the real story of Cairn's death is not revealed, he must accept that Jack will eventually kill Gawain.]]

* TranquilFury: Gerald often does this.
** When Jarvis gets stinking drunk at Carl's pub in the middle of the day, and in the presence of Jack and Daniel, Gerald happens to walk into the pub, smiles as he greets the two before dragging the very nervous sergeant out onto the street. You are left to guess what happens next.
** Gerald appears to be calm when he gets up and leaves his office when Jack delivers a letter to him, [[spoiler:which turns out to be a challenge to a fist-fight by Nocturne]].
