! Brandt
->''This stout-hearted village youth doesn't know much about etiquette but he knows right from wrong. He likes to take the lead with robust cheer; some people enjoy his enthusiasm, but others think he's just pushy.''

A citizen of Horne who serves as the game's main protagonist of sorts.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: He feels emasculated by Krinjh and runs off on his own to try and get stronger.
* BalefulPolymorph: For a short time he's turned into a plant thanks to Arbor's unique magical protection.
* BigFriendlyDog: His animal form is a husky-like pup.
* DisappearedDad: There's no mention whatsoever of who Brandt's father is or what happened to him beyond the ring that Kuore gives Brandt at the start of the game.
* IdiotHero: He's a nice lad once he gets over his inferiority complex, but he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
* HeroesPreferSwords: In the artwork.
* IneffectualLoner: Very briefly. Tries to go it alone (plus [[BalefulPolymorph one cat]]) early in the game to prove that he's strong and adult. He winds up turned into a plant in the next town and Aire has to save him.
* ThePollyanna: He's usually in a pretty good mood, no matter the circumstances--even when he's turned into a dog he thinks it's great. The few times that he breaks character are usually just before a fight.
* TheProtagonist: He's the starting character and default party leader, plus his face is the "You Are Here" icon on the world map. That said, the game has more of an EnsembleCast feel.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: He very rarely gets actually angry at anyone during the story. Then, you reach Belphegor...
-->[Belphegor knocks Torte unconscious]
-->'''Aire:''' Torte!
-->'''Brandt:''' Okay, ''now'' I'm mad!

! Jusqua
->''This village youth has been spending quite a lot of time in the castle lately. He is pragmatic and as sharp as a tack. But he can also be childish and, for some people, a pain in the neck.''

A young, distant man from Horne. He sent to investigate the North Caves after Aire's abduction and meets Brandt there.
* AntiHero: Type II, Disney Anti-Hero. He's not bad or immoral, just kind of a pill. [[CharacterDevelopment At first]].
* DeadpanSnarker: He frequently makes sarcastic remarks about the other members of the party, but he eases up on it later.
* ItsAllMyFault: He feels absolutely terrible about Aire getting turned into a cat right after he ditched her.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Distant, uncaring... and yet he tries to help the cat he believes to be Aire even after it is stolen by the sorcerer in Urbeth.
* JackOfAllStats, MasterOfNone: While Jusqua's three stats all max out at 65, which means that while he's the most well-rounded character, he also doesn't ''stand out'' in any way: Brandt beats him in Strength, Aire in Intellect, and Yunita in Spirit.
* TheLancer: He's more intelligent and level-headed than Brandt. To Aire, he's both less obnoxious and less inclined to help strangers in need.
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:So that cat he took all the way to Urbeth and raised 10,000 gold to de-curse...? Yeah, it was a regular cat. Fortunately, things turn out all right with both Aire's curse and Jusqua's money]].
* TheSmartGuy: According to his in-game profile.
** GameplayAndStorySegregation: Although he's not the smartest character stat-wise; ''Aire'', of all people, outstrips him (and everyone else!) in Intellect.
* TheSpock: Thinks he's this in the beginning by taking the more practical route of accepting Liberte's offer of refuge, since it's not like he has the power to lift the petrification curse. [[SubvertedTrope Later, he admits that he just didn't like trying if he thought something was too hard]].

! Yunita
->''This dutiful lady warrior of the castle can always be relied upon to carry out orders. Her sharp eyes rarely miss a trick, but sometimes she stresses too much over the small stuff''.

A loyal knight from Horne whose goal is to save and protect Aire.
* BrainyBrunette: As noted by her character description, she's pretty bright when she's not having a bad self-esteem day and occasionally points out in-universe bits of FridgeLogic.
* ButtMonkey: In the first half of the game, she's abandoned twice by the other party members and winds up wandering the square in Urbeth half-dressed because she's been conned out of the very clothes on her back. (Fortunately for the player, [[GameplayAndStorySegregation her inventory is still intact]].)
* TheChampion: For Aire. She always puts Aire's safety first even when Aire is rude to her. (Ironically, Aire later says that ''Yunita'' is the one who needs to be looked after.)
* TheDeterminator: She gets from Guera to Urbeth on her own, and then up the Sky Tower and through Spelvia Dungeons (although the first one happens offscreen).
* FailureKnight: She dedicates herself to guarding Aire and restoring Horne. She immediately has to send Aire away for her own protection, gets ditched by her partner, and ends up in a town full of cutthroat businessmen who reduce her to a ragged street bum. Things don't start to improve until after she's ditched a second time.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Her trip from Guera to Urbeth takes place offscreen, so she ends up slightly underleveled.
* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: She's the only member of the castle guard who doesn't have a helmet on (although this is averted with the Crowns that include helmets).
* HeroicBSOD: Initially refuses to team up with Jusqua in Urbeth because she's busy feeling miserable and pathetic.
* InformedFlaw: Her flaws are variously described as being TheLoad, pride, and being an IneffectualLoner. There are a few subtle indications, but the others' flaws are so glaring it's hard to pin down exactly when she's doing this. (And when she does go it alone, it's certainly not by choice.)
* ObliviousGuiltSlinging: The way she sings Krinijh's praises really amps up Brandt's insecurities. Later, her few questions about what happened to Aire causes Jusqua to rile in his guilt, contributing to his abandonment of her as well.
* TheLoad: Brandt describes her as such, and Jusqua isn't impressed with her moping in Urbeth.
* NewMeat: She's the youngest soldier in Horne's guard.
* SelfDeprecation: Thanks to the above sequence of events, she has a ''very'' low opinion of herself. She gets over it after being dumped a second time and climbing Urbeth's tower on her own.
* SkirtOverSlacks: Her Freelancer outfit has a red miniskirt over her knight's armor.
* SoleSurvivor: Of the original mission to rescue Aire. Everyone else was a RedShirt.
* WhiteMage: Despite starting off as a knight, Yunita is unparalleled in the role of a healer, having the highest Spirit growth out of the four.

! Aire
->''This castle princess is bright, cheerful, and loves to talk. She can raise spirits and bring parties to life in the direst of situations. On the other hand, everyone agress that she is [[ItsAllAboutMe completely self-centered]]. But then, she would be, being a princess and all...''

The princess of Horne whose kidnapping starts the plot.
* BalefulPolymorph: Into a cat by a piece of cursed treasure.
* BlackMage: Her high Intellect stat makes her ideal for this role.
* BreakTheHaughty: After ordering Jusqua around like a servant and going on a dangerous treasure hunt out of pure greed (ignoring giant flashing hints that "the treasure is cursed") she is turned into a cat, nobody can understand her, and she has to undertake a long difficult journey to turn back. [[spoiler:During which Lilibelle the fairy is killed protecting her.]]
* TheChick: She's definitely the girliest character in the party. She can also be quite empathetic when she's not in one of her selfish moods.
* DistressedDamsel: The plot kicks off when she's kidnapped. She makes it clear how unhappy she is with how long it took to rescue her.
* EekAMouse: She shrieks in terror when she sees Torte the mouse sage for the first time. He also shrieks, because she's a ''cat'' at the time.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: It takes a bit for that heart of gold to show, but it's there.
* ItsAllAboutMe: She has this view at first, but begins to care more about others after [[spoiler:her greed and selfishness cause the death of her companion, Lilibelle]].
* MissingMom: Her mother died [[DeathByChildbirth giving birth to her]]. [[spoiler:Averted in the ending, where it's shown that the Queen is alive and well after the heroes changed the past]].
* MoneyFetish: She's obsessed with treasure. Even after she wises up, she still sees it as a fringe benefit to helping people.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After [[spoiler:Lilibelle performs a HeroicSacrifice for her]].
* PluckyGirl: She charges headlong into situations and expects them to turn out alright without planning. Sadly, this causes quite a few early-game complications for her companions and her.
* PrettyPrincessPowerhouse: After being rescued, she proves to be quite dangerous for a sheltered RoyalBrat. ''Especially'' by the endgame.
* RoyalBrat: Oh, ''yes''. She berates Yunita for not rescuing her fast enough and drives Jusqua over the edge in Liberte. She grows out of it, though.
* SimpleStaff: Most of the official artworks depict her with this.
* SpoiledSweet: Even while she's still being a RoyalBrat, she instantly agrees to rescue Apollo's parents from pirates.

! King Horne:
The ruler of Horne. He sends Brandt to rescue his younger daughter from the Withc of the North.
* BalefulPolymorph: [[spoiler:He's actually Ankei. The king you meet is Satan.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:If you were wondering why Brandt and his mom have a parrot or why it's named, well, it just happens to be the ''real'' King.]]
* TheGoodKing: Everyone in Horne seems pretty content with his rule, although Louhi's complaint about him casts some doubt on this.
* GoodParents: To a degree. Aire did turn out to be a RoyalBrat, but she does say he was careful never to show favoritism with either of his daughters. [[spoiler:Pretty conscientious considering that "King Horne" was really Satan.]]
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: Crown included, he just about comes up to Aire's shoulder. She's a fifteen-year-old girl.

! Queen Horne
Carino and Aire's mother as well as King Horne's wife. She died after giving birth to Aire.
* DeathByChildbirth: Had one daughter without incident, but took ill and died after having Aire.
* ThePowerOfLove: From [[spoiler: the real King Horne is what allows her to recover after giving birth to Aire in the changed timeline.]]
* PostHumousCharacter: [[spoiler:In the original timeline.]]

!Louhi, The Witch of the North
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: She holds the terms of her contract more important than anything else and turns Horne to stone when Aire is rescued, not to mention making the deal to swap the ultimate black magic for Aire in the first place. However, [[spoiler:she seems to respect Rolan and immediately does as he asks when he intervenes in the past]], so she's not just a CardCarryingVillain.
* LadyOfBlackMagic: Her mansion is quite elegant (if badly lit) and she dresses to match, although the townsfolk consider her to be a more standard WickedWitch.
* TheRedBaron: She's only called the Witch of the North in the game.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Turns into griffin-like Greaps when Brandt, Jusqua, and Yunita rescue Aire.

! King Guera
The king of Guera. He sends Brandt, Yunita, and Krinjh to kill the Sand Devil in the Quicksand Castle when they ask for his help.
* BenevolentMageRuler: Guera is known for its powerful magic, and research on it is done in the palace.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:He tried to assassinate Krinjh and then convinced Ariadne that Krinjh had abandoned her. Although Krinjh managed to survive, the damage was done.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Has no problem offering to help Brandt and Yunita fix Horne so long as they do him the favor of freeing his kingdom from the Sand Devil. [[spoiler:Subverted. Not only does he disappear after they do so, he's also the one who's responsible for the whole mess.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Once you defeat the Sand Devil, he locks up his palace without making good on his deal. [[spoiler:We never find out for sure what happened to the real king. In all likelihood, he was possessed and killed.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: You don't find out the full story about his history with the Sand Devil until the second half.

! Krinjh
A young-looking man from the Guera desert. He helps Brandt and Yunita reach Guera and joins them briefly on their quest to save Horne.
* BrokenAce: He's stronger and more skilled than Brandt and Yunita (earning the former's envy and the latter's admiration) but his tragic past makes him a DeathSeeker.
* CoolSword: He wields a shamshir.
* ElementalSword: Magic Sword is his only Ability.
* LastOfHisKind: All the other moon folk are gone [[spoiler:in the first battle against Asomedeus]].
* MagicKnight: He uses the Spell Fencer crown, allowing him to give elemental power to his attacks.
* MysticalWhiteHair: Him being one of the moon folk and all.
* StarCrossedLovers: With Ariadne, the fairy from Liberte.
* TogetherInDeath: After defeating Ariadne in her Sand Devil form, he disappears into the moonlight with her. [[spoiler:At least in the original timeline.]]
* UnexpectedSuccessor: [[spoiler:In the new timeline, he and Ariadne become the rulers of Guera.]]

! Ariadne
Ariadne is an elf from Arbor. You don't find this out until you defeat the Sand Devil, because she ''is'' the Sand Devil.
* DyingAsYourself: She turns back into her real self upon defeat and dies shortly afterward.
* MeaningfulName: Ariadne was a character in Myth/GreekMythology who helped a hero and was then abandoned by him.
* MysticalWhiteHair: She has silvery hair [[RapunzelHair down to her feet]].
* OneWingedAngel: She transformed into the Sand Devil, a fearsome monster that kept Guerans trapped in the desert.
* StarCrossedLovers: With Krinjh. [[spoiler:Later rectified by the party.]]
* UnexpectedSuccessor: [[spoiler:After the party undoes Asmodeus' interference, Ariadne becomes the ruler of Guera alongside Krinjh.]]
* {{Yandere}}: [[spoiler:Her main aim as the Sand Devil was to keep Krinjh trapped in the desert, having been convinced by King Guera that he'd abandoned her.]]
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler:She was exiled for bringing a Great Tree Seed to her love, Krinjh, so that Guera could prosper, and eventually became the Sand Devil after Guera convinced her that Krinjh had used her.]]


! Lilibelle
A fairy who befriends Aire after Horne is cursed. She winds up being swept along in Aire's quest for treasure.
* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler:Gives her wings to Aire upon death so that Aire can follow the Fairy Path.]]
* TheFairFolk: She hails from Arbor, although she's significantly friendlier than some of her people.
* FairyCompanion: To Aire, and only Aire. She tries to advise Aire on caution and not stealing flagrantly cursed treasure, to no avail.
* FairyInABottle: Aire rescues her from an artistic glass vase in the pirate hoard. Lilibelle had actually ''volunteered'' to pose inside of it for the glassmaker Pione's exhibition, but Drake swiped it while she was stuck inside.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:She dies to drive off the Ogre Bear and restore Aire to life. Aire and the others are able to prevent this from happening after the TimeCrash.]]
* IOweYouMyLife: Towards Aire after Aire frees her from the vase. [[spoiler:It happens again in the past when the party frees her from a spider web and rescues her from Leviathan.]]
* InvisibleToNormals: Fairies only allow their rescuers to see them. This makes Jusqua thinks that Aire is talking to herself. [[spoiler:When the party visits the past she makes herself visible to all of them so they can get her out of a spiderweb, and remains that way.]]
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: A trait of fairies. Very helpful after Aire is cursed into being a cat.

! Captain Drake
The leader of the local pirates. He's generally known as an okay guy, but lately he's been harassing the town far more than usual.
* TheAtoner: Vows to help make Liberte a peaceful place in the original timeline.
* BadassBeard: Of course, being a pirate.
* DressedToPlunder: Drake's pirates have stripey shirts and bandannas; Drake himself has the bicorn and BadassBeard but is otherwise dressed the same.
* HostageSituation: Lately he's been kidnapping the locals. [[spoiler:It's actually a monster in disguise. The real cap'n is held prisoner in his own hideout.]]
* IHaveYourWife: Leviathan's minion threatens to kill his crew if he doesn't plunder Liberte's artworks. [[spoiler:He's caught in a bind when ordered to squish Lilibelle, which he just can't do. Fortunately, the Heroes of Light show up right then.]]
* LoveableRogue: He's really a nice guy when he's not plundering things.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Usually. He and his pirates go on about "freedom" much more than plunder. The fact that they're actually attacking and robbing people is viewed as a serious aberration.

A famous artist.
* ChekhovsGunman: He's first mentioned as the creator of the Liberte Vase early on, but isn't met in-person until the second half.
* DistressBall: Gets kidnapped by Drake [[spoiler:at Leviathan's orders]].

! Queen Arbor
The fairy ruler of the town. She has a pronounced distaste for humans.
* TheFairFolk: She is their leader. The Queen has absolutely no time for humans--granted, with some past experience not doing them any favors--and has no moral compunctions about turning them into topiaries.
* FantasticRacism: She feels that HumansAreTheRealMonsters and won't let them into her kingdom, although she will suffer their presence in animal form.
* TheHighQueen: Of Arbor.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Although he turns-humans-into-plans spell on Arbor is clearly an aberration of niceties, she's very willing to hear Aire and Torte out once they actually talk to her.

! Torte
A mysterious mouse sage who lives in Arbor. He appears to be close friends with Arbaroc and joins Aire as a party member when she comes to the town as a cat.
* {{Adorkable}}: He has his moments.
* AnIcePerson: He starts out with Blizzard and Blizzara.
* BalefulPolymorph: [[spoiler:He was human before he accidentally freed Belphegor. Queen Arbor turned him into a mouse as punishment--though he says he didn't mind so much when she turns him back.]]
* CourtMage: To Queen Arbor, seen sitting beside her throne. [[spoiler:She gives him the position again after the party saves Arboroc.]]
* InterfaceSpoiler: Like the other temporary party members, you can steal his clothes. [[spoiler:The mouse cape turns into a normal human outfit when equipped.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Has this reaction after [[spoiler:killing Arboroc in the original timeline]].
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler:In regards to the demon of fire being freed from his prison.]]
* OddFriendship: Torte the mouse and Aire the cat.
* SquishyWizard: He has the Sage class, which has high magic stats but low strength.
* TalkingAnimal: Subverted. He can only be talked to when you have the Transform/Animal Staff active.
* WasOnceAMan: [[spoiler:A young lad from Invidia who wanted to study magic.]]

! Thauzand
The leader of the four Merchant Lords. Thauzand owns the weapon shop in the northwest corner of town. Although the town has a well-earned reputation for ruthlessness, he's willing to help Jusqua if Jusqua's willing to work.
* AdultFear: [[spoiler:Having to watch your child die because you can't afford the medicine.]]
* TheBlacksmith: Runs the weapons shop in town.
* CynicismCatalyst: [[spoiler:The plague that killed his daughter turned him from a priest into a businessman obsessed with profit.]]
* HornyVikings: Well, he's got the helmet anyway.
* LargeAndInCharge: He's considered the leader of the Four Merchant Lords. He's also the most physically large. [[spoiler:Before that, he was the head priest.]]
* ManInWhite: In the past, when he was a priest.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He's happy to help Jusqua earn some money by letting him borrow counter space and then lends him a boat in gratitude for fighting the sorcerers' monsters.

! Sorcerer
A puppet maker and curate who promises Jusqua to heal his cat, if he can provide the money. The children of Urbeth love his puppets, even if he is a price gouger.
* EvilIsPetty: He didn't need to take Jusqua's cat with him; he simply felt like keeping it as a pet.
* EnemySummoner: The fight against him is a joke, really. However, after a few rounds, he will summon Behugemoth to fight for him.
* DemonicDummy: His puppets turn into Fiends to raze the town in order to provide cover for his escape.
* {{Greed}}: Like all Urbethians.

! Rekoteh
Rolan's sister, and daughter of Invidia's chief. She joins Brandt and Jusqua when they search for the Dragon Harp.
* BladeOnAStick: She joins the party with a spear.
* HairDecorations: The big bow in her hair, which remains even in animal form. Notably, it's missing when you go back [[spoiler:into Invidia's past]].
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: [[spoiler:The only Dragonier whose heart wasn't frozen by Mammon's curse.]]
* KindheartedCatLover: She has a plush cat in her room, a cat-shaped carpet, and immediately adopts [[spoiler:the cat that Jusqua mistook for Aire]]. She'll also turn into a cat if you use the Transformation Staff on her.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Dragoniers have a much longer lifespan than normal humans. [[spoiler:This is why she still looks like a young girl when the party goes back in time.]]
* ScarfOfAsskicking: It has pom-poms on the end of it.
* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: [[spoiler:Going back in time shows that her father was very harsh and compared her unfavorably to her brother.]]
* WhiteMage: Rather than being of the White Mage class, however, she's a Dancer, whose AP recovery allows her to be an efficient spellcaster.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Maybe it's just frozen.

! Chief
The ruler of Invidia. He's waiting for his son to conquer the world from Spelvia so that Invidia can rule it.
* AbusiveParents: He sent Rolan to Spelvia alone to build an empire and once exiled his daughter from the house.[[note]]Even though the place she needed to go was located ''inside'' the house.[[/note]] [[spoiler:This is a result of Mammon's influence.]]
* NoNameGiven: It's just Chief, Chief.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Like the rest of the Dragoniers, he's very long-lived. Since he's Rolan's dad, he has to be at least three centuries old.
* TheResenter: He resents the outside world mostly for being a nicer place to live.

! Rolan
The supposed legendary hero, and Rekoteh's brother. He resents the continual pleas for help he gets, as Aire and Yunita discover when they ask about Horne, but the problem is deeper than mere resentment.
* TheAloner: If he hadn't been the only Hero and forced to live with just golems and goats, his life would have been a whole lot easier.
* BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind: The heroes go into his soul to free him from the darkness. [[spoiler:It just makes it worse.]]
* TheBerserker: His only Ability is an attack which amps up his Strength and lowers his Defense.
* TheChosenOne: The original Hero of Light. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, being the ''only'' Hero of Light make him lonely and hateful.]]
* ClimaxBoss: [[spoiler:He is faced halfway through the game. The aftermath of the fight completely changes the setting.]]
* ElementalPowers: Comes equipped with Thunder. [[spoiler:In the boss fight, his physical atacks are dark-elemental but casts Banish spells, which are light.]]
* FakeUltimateHero: Inverted. While he has the power to help many people, he despises them and sees himself as a coward. [[spoiler:After his heart is cleansed of Lucifer by the heroes, he works to help them on their quest, even convincing Louhi to break her contract with King Horne, freeing Horne from its curse.]]
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: According to the Crystal, his heart drank in the darkness of the world as he battled.
* ILetGwenStacyDie: He's still sorrowful over the [[spoiler:death of the Mother Dragon during his battle with Chaos]].
* MisanthropeSupreme: Although he doesn't actively go out and slaughter people, he thinks all humans are selfish assholes and hates them for always asking his help. This has affected the Golems, who will attack the party unless the leader is an an animal (or Rolan himself).
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: His hair is silver and his heart is literally filled with darkness. [[spoiler:Fortunately you fix him.]]

! Witch of the Sky
An enigmatic witch who is investigating Spelvia.
* MentalWorld: She creates a portal in a fountain that lets Aire and Yunita enter Rolan's soul.
* [[MrExposition MsExposition]]: She explains what has happened to the world after Rolan is defeated, with just a glance.

[[folder:Servants of Chaos]]
!Please note:
The demons only appear in the second half of the game and are {{Walking Spoiler}}s. Hence, spoilers in here are not marked--if you're not there yet, close the folder.

! Asmodeus
This demon has been masquerading as the king of Guera, and he's responsible for the whole Sand Devil mess.
* ElementalPowers: PlayingWithFire and DishingOutDirt. Bring some earth shields.
* {{Lust}}: The sin he represents.
* ManipulativeBastard: He manages to turn Ariadne against Krinjh, resulting in her transformation into the Sand Devil.
* PrecisionFStrike: Up until you face him (if you go to Guera first after defeating Rolan), the closest thing to cursing anyone says in this game is "heck". When you defeat Asmodeus, however...
-->'''Asmodeus: DAMN YOU!'''

! Leviathan
The demon of envy. A servant of Chaos. Leviathan strong-arms Drake and his crew, forcing them to steal several key objects from Liberte, including the Rusty Compass. This sends the Cetus into an eternal slumber.

* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: In keeping with the original, Biblical concept of Leviathan, he's a squid-like creature rather than the sea serpent seen elsewhere in the series.
* EvilMinions: He has the Sea Devil (a palette swap of Brainshark) strong-arm Drake into plundering Liberte.
* KickTheDog: Seriously, there was no reason he needed Lilibelle dead. Hell, he probably didn't need to have Drake ''keep'' stealing art once the Rusty Compass was out of the way.
* SevenDeadlySins: The demon of envy.

! Belphegor
The demon of fire. Originally sealed with the white magic spell Lux, he was accidentally freed by a human mage and immediately tried to bury Arbor in a volcanic eruption--when stopped by Arbaroc, he possessed him in revenge.
* DemonicPossession: To Arbaroc.
* ElementalPowers: PlayingWithFire, not surprisingly. Unlike the other demons, he makes use of only the one element.
* PrecisionFStrike: A similar example as above. If you go to Arbor before Guera, then this will likely be the first instance of the word "damn" in this game.
* {{Sloth}}: His deadly sin.
* SealedEvilInACan: He was held in place by the Lux spell until [[spoiler:Torte interfered with it]].

! Beelzebub
The demon of gluttony. Years ago, he set out to destroy Urbeth's faith by causing a terrible plague, then charging exorbitant prices for medicine. It works, turning the city from a spiritual place to a CityNoir. In the present timeframe, he had returned to cause more trouble in the form of the dollmaking Sorcerer.
* BreakingSpeech: In the original timeline, he convinced the High Priests of Urbeth to abandon their faith and embrace greed instead.
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: His boss form is a big purple octopus.
* NightmareFace: It's some kind of horrible purple baby head with the tongue hanging out and waaay too many teeth.
* PlagueMaster: He caused the plague in Urbeth to turn the population from faith to greed.
* SevenDeadlySins: Gluttony. He represents it in terms of desire for excess rather than [[VillainousGlutton overeating]].
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: He takes a human form to pose as the apothecary and previously/later the Sorcerer.

! Mammon
The demon of ice. She has trapped Invidia in a perpetual winter by holing up in the Sun Temple, causing their hearts to grow cold and for them to become bitter because of this.
* AnIcePerson: An extremely powerful one, given that she freezes a small geographical region.
* {{Greed}}: The Invidians desire to conquer the world thanks to her interference.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The only female of the demons.
* WinterRoyalLady: The humanoid part of her form is this.

! Lucifer
The demon of pride. Another servant of Chaos. He takes advantage of Rolan's sadness to corrupt his soul, turning Rolan into an isolationist misanthrope.

* TheCorrupter: As fitting to his namesake.
* DemonicPossession: Does this to Rolan, first directly and then by proxy with Geri and Freki.
* LightIsNotGood: Lucifer, the Lord of Light. Fittingly, he uses light-elemental attacks.
* {{Pride}}: It's emphasized further in the Japanese version, where the town is the Latin word for pride: Superbia.
* ShockAndAwe: Uses Judgment Bolt.

! Satan
He's been posing as the King of Horne for over a decade. He turned the real king into the parrot, Ankei, and sold Aire to Louhi in exchange for the ultimate black magic--then reneges on the deal and tries to get Aire back, which kicks off the whole thing.
* {{Climax Boss}}: You don't get to fight him until you take care of all the other demons and once you beat him, the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon appears.
* ElementalPowers: CastingAShadow. His normal attack, as well as several powerful magic spells.
* {{Expy}}: His role in the story is very similar to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasy4 Cagnazzo]]. Satan design on the other hand, recalls [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Garland, Chaos,]], and the [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII Emperor of Hell]]. The similarity to the Emperor of Hell is especialy significant, as he [[DependingOnTheWriter might have been]] Satan.
* TheHeavy:[[spoiler: Basicaly set's the whole plot in motion, selling Aire to Louhi, and sending the heroes out on their quest. While Chaos might be the BigBad of the game, he is only met at the very end.]]
* {{Satan}}: Obviously.
* {{Wrath}}: The desire to harm. He tries making a deal with Louhi to get the ultimate destructive magic.

! Chaos
This ''is'' Final Fantasy, and a {{Retraux}} Light Warrior game, so it's not entirely unexpected to see this guy.
* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: He wouldn't have been able to do anything, says he, if humans hadn't ''wanted'' to do evil. This is also how he revives into his second boss form.
* BiggerBad: Although he is behind everything, he isn't met until the final battle.
* {{Expy}}: Of Chaos himself of course. His first form is significantly more human than the original beast-man, but subsequent transformations have a closer resemblence. He also has abilities of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII Cloud of Darkness]], and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Zeromus]], and the final fight with Chaos same plot line [[spoiler: with allies reviving the heroes, when everything seems lost]], as with those two. The speech Chaos makes before dying is an allusion to the final words Zeromus speaks before dying. The design of his third, final form, is also very similar to [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX Necron]].
* FastballSpecial: His third form's Hurl attack picks up one hero and throws them into another, which hurts both of them.
* FinalBoss
* FinalBossNewDimension: The final battle with him takes place in a giant white void.
* OneWingedAngel: Turns from a rather dapper humanoid to a huge-armed monster, and then to a vast entity with a cape of stars.
* SequentialBoss: He has three forms to his final battle.
