The character list for ''VideoGame/RadiataStories'', which has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters (176 recruitable to be precise) and many other supporting characters.


[[folder: Main Characters]]

!!Jack Russell
A cheerful, but brash young man with aspirations to be a knight, like his father before him. He gets caught directly in the struggle between the humans and non-humans.
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JunkoTakeuchi (Japanese), Creator/BrycePapenbrook (English)

* AdaptationalBadass: While he's pretty badass in the video game, in the manga, ''damn''. Pulling off things he couldn't pull off in-game and getting to ''punch Nocturne out'' was pretty awesome.
* BadassNormal: He's just a 16 year old kid who just caught up with what has happened with the real world. He could still kick ass be it orc, goblin, mage or anything else with just his sword and items.
* BlackKnight: If you let him wear the Demon Mail armor. Comes complete with a BadassCape.
* BloodKnight: A tame example. Jack really enjoys a good fight.
* ButThouMust: Even if you have the Tri-Emblem equipped, and the most powerful armor you have at your disposal, Jack will always lose the HopelessBossFight even if he's still alive after a [[LimitBreak Volty Blast]] in the face.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Quite rare for a JRPG protagonist, but brown eyes and hair fit village boy Jack perfectly.
* DisappearedDad: Dead by the time of the starter of the game, and his mother is not even mentioned.
** FamousAncestor: His father was renowned for being the first human in Radiata to ever kill a Dragon. [[spoiler: Jack follows in his footsteps in the Human path by killing both the Fire and Wind Dragon.]]
* TheFool
* ForceAndFinesse: The [[LightningBruiser Finesse]] to Ridley's [[MightyGlacier Force]].
* GoodMorningCrono
* HowDoIShotWeb: Jack has to train with weapons in order to be able to use them effectively.
* IdiotHero: Living in the country side really hasn't helped him pick up on certain things when he becomes a knight.
** CharacterDevelopment makes him a somewhat more philosophical character, questioning the war regardless of what side he has taken.
* JackOfAllStats: No pun intended. Jack is pretty powerful on his own, which is good since you have to control him the entire game. His playstyle depends on the weapon you have equipped.
* LightningBruiser: Jack gets quite the array of support skills, and combined with his weapon choices makes him a full blown beast later on. With a sword though, he'll be quick and deal good damage.
* LimitBreak: Jack can use 4 different Volty Blasts, one for each of the weapons he can equip.
** Limit Break - A 9-hit sword combo that ends with a powerful upward slash.
** Army of Shadows - Jack swings his two-handed sword in the air, [[LivingShadow creating three shadows]] that deliver a powerful slash simultaneously with Jack.
** Thousand Spears - A rapid series of spear thrusts. Jack then finishes the attack by driving his spear into the ground, [[StormOfBlades summoning spears]] beneath his target that launch them into the air.
** [[SpinAttack Radial Smash]] - Jack throws his axe into the air, [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning making it spin]]. He then leaps into the air, catching the axe, before spinning and [[GroundPound smashing down into his foe]].
* MagneticHero: A lot of people comment that he has this effect on them.
* MaleMightFemaleFinesse: GenderInverted with [[MightyGlacier Ridley]].
* MightyGlacier: Using a two-handed sword or axe turns Jack into one, since his attacks will be slow, but devastating.
* MultiMeleeMaster: Unlike other characters, Jack has the ability to use several different weapons, which includes:
** One-handed swords
*** AncestralWeapon: The Arbitrator, which belonged to Jack's father Cairn. [[spoiler: It can only be used in the nonhuman path]].
** [[{{BFS}} Two-handed swords]] and [[KatanasAreJustBetter katanas]]
** [[BladeOnAStick Spears]]
** [[AnAxeToGrind Axes]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: His attempt to protect the Fire Dragon in the non-human path ends up [[spoiler: giving Cross the item he needs to kill it.]] If he hadn't interfered Parsec could have killed Cross and Dynas with no issue.
* ThePollyanna
* PunnyName: His name is a breed of a dog. Just like said breed, he's very energetic.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Ganz's and Ridley's blue.
* ShellShockedVeteran: [[spoiler: In the human ending. He ends up leaving Radiata in utter silence.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: At the start of the game, he gets floored Ridley in one shot. By the end of the game on both endings, he [[spoiler: kills the silver dragon Aphelion.]]
* TheUnChosenOne: Jack literally is a nobody in terms of his importance to both the war, and [[spoiler: the Dragon's ResetButton]]. However, Jack though sheer determination, changes the world no matter what path you pick.
* UnwittingPawn: In the human path, Jack is a pawn of [[spoiler: Lucian, aka, the Silver Dragon Aphelion.]]
* WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou: Jack is the only playable character, so it's game over if he gets killed in battle.
* WeirdnessMagnet: Despite being a simple village boy with aspirations to become a knight, he seems to be the epicenter for lots of important events.

!!Ridley Silverlake
A serious young noblewoman who has spent most of her life training to be a knight. Much like Jack, she gets swept up directly between the human and nonhuman struggle.
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SanaeKobayashi (Japanese), Creator/StephanieSheh (English)

* BreakTheCutie
* DefrostingIceQueen
* DubNameChange: Her surname was changed from Timberlake in Japanese to Silverlake.
* ForceAndFinesse: The [[MightyGlacier Force]] to Jack's [[LightningBruiser Finesse]].
* GameBreakingInjury: A Blood Orc fatally injures her early in the game which results in her being unusuable for a good portion of the game. Unusual for the trop though is that she recovers and becomes even stronger.
* GirlishPigtails: At first. She lets down her hair over the course of the game.
* GlacierWaif: Wields a huge axe and has very high physical strength.
* GreenEyes: Bright, vibrant green eyes. Later in the game [[spoiler: she receives the soul of an elf and becomes the Gold Dragon's vessel.]]
* GuestStarPartyMember: She is part of your squad after you join the knights. She becomes unusable after you are forced to leave. She rejoins later [[spoiler:if you choose to go with her at the story split,]] however even then she regularly becomes unavailable and isn't usable in the endgame.
* HopelessBossFight: The first fight in the game against her is completely unwinnable.
* {{Hypocrite}}: She was hostile towards Jack early in the game because she believed he was only accepted as a knight because of his father's reputation. Later, when her own father used his connections to get her promoted, she does not turn it down despite knowing she did not earn it. What she does is give her dad a tongue lashing. [[note]] Given that Larks is forced to dismiss Jack and Ganz, it's possible that Ridley couldn't refuse the promotion [[/note]].
* LadyOfWar
* TheLancer: In the Non-Human path, she's usually the first to support Jack and go with his plans.
* LettingHerHairDown: She spends the last parts of the game with her hair down from their pigtails.

* MagicSkirt
* MaleMightFemaleFinesse: GenderInverted with [[LightningBruiser Jack]].
* MinidressOfPower
* TheOjou: Her family is nobility, but interestingly Ridley seems to not care about that. She even abandon's her title and power at the halfway point of the game.
* QuicklyDemotedWoman: Inverted. After two missions she is promoted from trainee to captain because her Dad pulled strings.
* SharingABody: [[spoiler: After receiving the transpiritation ritual, she receives the soul of the light elf Hap, and becomes the vessel for the Gold Dragon.]]
* ShoutOut: Her name is a shout out to Creator/RidleyScott (or possibly ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'''s Ridley) and Ridley's mother is named Sigourney.
* TomboyishName
* TookALevelInBadass: Subtle but if you watch her fight early in the game, she has a habit of falling over in her combos. Later in the Non-Human path, she's swinging her axe and doing elaborate combos without any trouble.
* {{Tsundere}}: CharacterDevelopment drops the Tsun part and Jack later brings out her Dere side.
* WeaponOfChoice: AnAxeToGrind
* ZettaiRyouiki: Rank A with a miniskirt on all of her outfits.

!!Ganz Rothschild
A polite and genteel man in command of the Rose Cochon Brigade of the Radiata Knights. Having lived a sheltered life, he is innocent to the ways of the world and very enthusiastic.

* BadassMoustache: A very well-groomed one at that.
* BigBrotherMentor: For Jack in the beginning.
* TheBigGuy
* DisappearedDad: [[spoiler: His father fled after he killed Jack's father. Meeting him in the Non-Human path ends up being a major event for him.]]
* FamousAncestor: Much like Jack, Ganz's father Gawain is a famous Radiata Knight.
* FishOutOfWater: [[spoiler: When Ganz is kicked out of the Radiata Knights and decides to join the Void Community.]]
* GuestStarPartyMember: Similarly to Ridley, he is one of your squadmates when you join the knights. After being forced out of the knights, you go your separate ways. However, [[spoiler:if you join up with the non-humans]], eventually he rejoins as a full party member. If not then he never rejoins.
* JourneyToFindOneself
* KnightInSourArmor
* LimitBreak
** [[ChargedAttack Ganz Breaker]] - Ganz charges up his two-handed sword with energy, then charges sword-first at his enemy. Ganz Breaker can mean "[[BilingualBonus complete breaker]]" in German.
* MightyGlacier
* MulticoloredHair: Mostly brown hair with a blond streak in his bangs.
* OddFriendship: With [[spoiler:Rynka and Flau]].
* OutOfFocus: In the human path at least, which is weird considering he's one of the three main characters. While his exploits with the Void Community are shown, he doesn't take part in most of the latter half of the game and the last you see of him is when he goes on the aforementioned JourneyToFindOneself. In the non-human path, he eventually rejoins Jack for the rest of the story.
* ParentalAbandonment
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Jack's red.
* WeaponOfChoice: {{BFS}}
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: If you [[spoiler:side with the humans]], he goes on the aforementioned JourneyToFindOneself and you never hear from him again. Averted if [[spoiler:you side with the nonhumans]], in which case he returns and joins your party.

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KenNarita (Japanese), Creator/RichardCansino (English)

-->'''Voiced by:''' Dai Matsumoto (Japanese), Joe Cappelletti (English)

* WeaponOfChoice:
** AnAxeToGrind

* [[spoiler: WeaponOfChoice:]]
** [[spoiler: CarryABigStick / EpicFlail - A huge spiked morning star. Gawain also uses the weapon as a flail as the spiked ball at the top is [[VariableLengthChain attached to a chain]].]]

[[folder:Radiata Nobles]]

* {{Megane}}
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure

!!Lord Lucian Hewitt [[spoiler: aka Aphelion, the Silver Dragon]]

-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KenichiOgata (Japanese), Creator/SkipStellrecht (English)

* AlasPoorVillain: Though hes hardly a villain outside of getting Jack and Ganz kicked out the Knights, Jasne's story never has a happy ending. The last time we see him in the Human Path, he is [[spoiler:pathetically getting drunk crying over Ridley being gone. Then she dies. We don't get to see how he is affected by that.]] In the Non-Human path he [[spoiler:shares the same fate as the rest of humanity, presumably destroyed when Ridley joins with Quasar, though its ambiguous.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: Calls Larks out for defending Jack and Ganz by using their fathers reputations, saying that "knights cannot ride on the coattails of their parents". This is from the guy who is using his own connections to give his daughter a promotion even she knew she did not earn. Indeed, Larks points this out, "I did not expect to hear that from you".
* OverprotectiveDad: Unfortunately, it involved [[spoiler:firing both Jack and Ganz from the knights]] because he thought they failed to protect Ridley. So he reassigns her to a team with veteran knights who will act more like her bodyguards than teammates. Ridley was outraged.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Overprotective issues aside, he is shown to be a rather reasonable diplomat, doing everything he can to build human-nonhuman relationships and tries to avoid war.
* UngratefulBastard: You'd think he'd be grateful for Jack and Ganz for saving his daughter. Instead, he blames them for putting her in danger.

[[folder:Theater Vancoor]]

* HeartbrokenBadass: Elwen was once the disciple of a man named Alfred and was in love with him. He was the former bearer of Elwen's sword Avcoor. He passed away under mysterious circumstances, Elwen obtained his sword and formed the warrior guild. She constructed a shrine for him in the Path of the Spider.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: It seems to be that Elwen's past is rather storied. You don't learn much about it other than she was in love with a powerful man named Alfred and that she had gone to war with the dragons before, but she clearly has a history behind her. It doesn't help that she's the single strongest recruitable character in the main story.
* LadyOfWar
* LimitBreak:

* CulturedWarrior
* TwentyFourHourArmor
* WeaponOfChoice:

* WeaponOfChoice:
** AnAxeToGrind

!! Bruce
A high-ranking member of Theater Vancoor. He studied medicine in the priest's guild and was eventually recruited by Vancoor, where his skills were sorely needed. While he knows his way around a battlefield, he prefers to stay in Vancoor's clinic and treat patients.

A high-ranking warrior whose goal in life is to be as much like Gerald as possible. He is a member of the Septimo Squad. He appears bored when he encounters weak enemies, but he becomes excited when facing strong ones.
* ChallengeSeeker
* CoolHelmet
* IrritationIsTheSincerestFormOfFlattery: Most people would say this, but David sees himself as a HeroWorshipper.
* LightningBruiser
* PoorMansSubstitute: In-universe, he seeks to be the next Gerald, right down to using almost the same weapons. Gameplay-wise, David is a decent warrior early in the game until you can recruit stronger characters.
* WeaponOfChoice:
** DualWielding

!! Conrad
The spoiled heir of JFT Co., the sole supplier of arms to the Radiata Knights. Due to his lavish upbringing, he has no concept of poverty. An amicable but lazy member of Walter's squad, he shirks work as often as humanly possible.

* RichBitch
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney
* WeaponOfChoice:
** BladeOnAStick

!! Rolec
A low-ranking member of Theater Vancoor who has never once been on an assignment. He's eager to help but faints at the slightest hint of responsibility, making everyone wonder how he got into the guild in the first place.
* ShrinkingViolet

!! Thanos Benz
The smart-mouthed receptionist of Theater Vancoor. He started out as a sergeant in the guild but stepped down when Alicia Alen, then a newbie, defeated him in a duel. He affects boredom but actually takes his job very seriously, going out of his way to look after others.
-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KeijiFujiwara (Japanese), Creator/DanWoren (English)

* CantCatchUp: He's a fairly decent warrior on his own. Unfortunately, he gets completely overshadowed by Elwen, since he's likely the last Theater Vancoor character to recruit beforehand.
* DeadpanSnarker
* GuideDangIt: You have to complete all available Vancoor missions, two of which have a rather brief window, in order to recruit him. Without him, there's no recruiting Elwen.
* LightningBruiser

* IJustWantToBeBadass: He wants to be an exceptional mage, but he's too lazy to learn all the complexities of magic, so he spends his time thinking of ways to become powerful with minimal effort.

A Green Goblin slacker.
* ExtremeDoormat: Of the supremely uncaring variety. Most characters in Radiata Stories you have to kick twice to start a fight; they forgive you for the first kick but on the second kick they decide something needs to be done. To get into a fight with Den (winning will allow you to recruit him), you have to kick him a grand total of five times, and you barely get a reaction out of him.
* LazyBum: UpToEleven, to the point where he basically has [[FlatCharacter no defining characteristics]] beyond extreme apathy. He spends all day wandering aimlessly.
* StockholmSyndrome: After kicking him five times and then beating him down in a fight, he considers you to have improved his life by breaking his apathy with your spirit, and he wants to follow you around since he figures it will be interesting. No WhatTheHellHero here.

The Black Goblin leader.
* LimitBreak:
** Bazooka Wolf

A Black Goblin whose senses became muddled after getting covered in matango poison outside the village.
* DrugsAreBad: Most black goblins find themselves a bit...impeded by the toadstools they consume, but Bosso really stands out as an example. He's so delusional he was going to let a group of Matangoes eat him, and when the player rescues him, he attacks in response.
* TheHermit: Unintentionally. He simply got lost in the Sediche region and decided to live in the wilderness because he couldn't find his way back.

A psychic Black Goblin. He picks up radio signals via the toadstool on his head.
* AxeCrazy: Sometimes, as a result of having a peculiar mushroom on his head that can pick up radio signals that really mess with his mind.
* CuteAndPsycho: Even when he's AxeCrazy, he's adorable and very hard to take seriously.
* ItRunsOnNonsensoleum: The mushroom on Danny's head is a great example. It just raises so many questions. How did it become a part of him? Is it unique to him or can it be found other places? How does it receive radio signals, and why is Danny so profoundly influenced by these signals?
* MoreThanMindControl: Possibly. When Danny is in AxeCrazy mode, it's easy enough to think he might be completely possessed. But in other situations, such as when he hears a woman's problems with her boyfriend, he's shown to be in control of himself and sympathetic, and will ask Jack to help her. So how much of his psycho mood is the mushroom's doing, and how much of it is his own feelings aligning with the mind he's reading?
* NiceGuy: When not tripping out.

A trainee wolf rider who works under Ricky.
* HeroicWannabe: Claims he desires to be a wolf rider, but he's terrible with wolves and doesn't seem to really think about what it means. He probably just wants to imitate Ricky.
* TagalongKid: Again, to Ricky, who he greatly reveres.

* EarlyBirdCameo: Jack can find her armor in Radiata Castle in one of the King's rooms.
* EnergyBow
* LimitBreak:
** Nibelung Valesti: Just like her Purify Weird Soul from her [[VideoGame/ValkyrieProfile original game]], Lenneth unleashes her entire sword combo on an enemy, launching them in midair. They are then impaled by three spears and then Lenneth herself hurls an even larger spear at the enemy and ending in an explosion.
* NamedWeapons: Lenneth wields the Holy Sword Gram in battle, which is one of the strongest swords from her original game.. Jack can use one himself after beating her and it is the strongest one-handed sword in the game.
* [[OneManArmy One Woman Army]]: Much like Elwen, she's more than capable of taking on groups of enemies by herself.
* RapunzelHair

!!Gabriel Celesta
One of the two gods worshiped by the Olacion Order. Unlike most incarnations of Gabriel Celesta, he appears as an incredibly muscular dark-skinned man covered in glowing runes and wearing nothing but a tiny loincloth who wouldn't be out of place in a ''Cho Aniki'' game.
* BaldOfAwesome

!!Ethereal Queen
One of the two gods worshiped by the Olacion Order of Radiata. This incarnation of Ethereal Queen looks like an angelic fairy in elegant white clothing, but she seems to be more evil than she lets on...
* BonusBoss: She is the last boss of the secret dungeon and certainly the most powerful enemy in the game.
* CatchPhrase: Seeing as how she's one of the trademark secret bosses of tri-Ace, she has a catch phrase before and after battle. Ethereal Queen starts off her encounter with Jack by stating that she's very different from Gabriel Celesta. After being defeated, she chuckles and asks Jack what he desires now that he's proven his strength before she fades away.
