The cast of VideoGame/RivieraThePromisedLand. ''Contains massive spoilers.''
----
!Riviera characters are associated with the following tropes:

!!Ein / Ecthel
!!!Voiced by: Creator/RieKugimiya (JP), Creator/YuriLowenthal (EN, PSP version)
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ein-riviera_9032.jpg]]

TheProtagonist. He is sent to Riviera by Hector to actuate the Retribution, and many of the other characters remark on how naive and hopeless he is; nevertheless, he is an extremely powerful Grim Angel (he manages to keep up with Ledah with a little help from his ExpositionFairy, despite the fact that he's as new to his job as new gets!). He traded his wings for his [[EmpathicWeapon Diviner]], [[CoolSword Einherjar]]. Ein is separated from his companions Ledah and Rose by Riviera's guardian, Ursula; she gives him LaserGuidedAmnesia and deposits him in a Sprite village so that he can better consider their point of view. After she gives him his memories back, he becomes her [[LaserGuidedTykebomb Laser Guided]] SpannerInTheWorks.

Much of Ein's personality is up to the player's direction and dialogue choices, but his default demeanor is innocent and friendly; he believes the best of everyone around him, even (to a point) his enemies. His age and surname are not given by Sting. [[{{Fanon}} Some fans hold his birthday]] to be July 10, the release date of the PSP version in America.

* AccidentalPervert: On the whole, although depending on the player's actions there can be a handful of intentional incidents.
** ThatCameOutWrong: Countless times, both in player-chosen dialogue and during events.
* ButNowIMustGo: According to the [[WordOfGod official timeline]], he and Rose leave Riviera for good sometime after the final battle.
** IChooseToStay: In the non-canon endings for the other girls.
* ChickMagnet: All the party member girls, as well as most unattached girls in Elendia, express interest in him.
** EvenTheGuysWantHim: As does Reiche. He also gets a fair amount of ShipTease with Ledah.
* TheChosenOne
* CrossdressingVoices
* TheCutie
* DubNameChange: His name in the Japanese version is Ecthel; his Diviner is called Ecthelion.
** DubInducedPlotHole: There's a character in {{Gungnir}} named Einherjar, which will [[OneSteveLimit cause problems]] as it made it to North America in June of 2012. Both {{Gungnir}}'s Einherjar and Ein have {{Meaningful Name}}s.
* TheFool: At the beginning of the game, at least.
* HeroicResolve
* ImprobableWeaponUser: While you don't actually use them in battle, Ein's skill with simple rocks is incredibly astounding. He even [[spoiler:skips a rock around 100 times across an entire lake and kills an unsuspecting enemy skeleton on the other side.]]
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Which allows him to survive Ursula's torture between chapters 1 and 2.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia
* LaserGuidedTykebomb: The reason Ursula gave him LaserGuidedAmnesia was essentially to brainwash him into wanting to support Riviera instead of Asgard. ''It worked.''
* LightEmUp

* NaiveNewcomer:
* TheOneGuy
* OurAngelsAreDifferent
* PhlebotinumRebel
* SkilledButNaive
* SpannerInTheWorks

!!Fia
!!!Voiced by: Creator/NatsumiYanase (JP), Creator/WendeeLee (EN, PSP version)
[[quoteright:256:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fia-riviera_3923.jpg]]

Granddaughter of Elendia's elder and one of the first girls to join forces with Ein. Fia took care of Ein while he was an amnesiac, and invited him to live with her and her friend Lina. She is well-read and responsible, and explains a great deal about the world to Ein when he still can't remember very much (including several battle mechanics not gone over by Ledah and Rose). She starts out apparently infatuated with Ein, assigning him the suffix ''-sama'' in the Japanese version; depending on the choices of the player, she may fall in love with him by the end of the game.

Gossiping with the house fairy Coco reveals that Fia has a sweet tooth and is insecure about her weight, and is less mature than she likes to act. Her age and surname are not given by Sting. [[{{Fanon}} Some fans hold her birthday]] to be July 12, the release date of the WSC version of the game.

* BewareTheNiceOnes
* TheChick
* ClingyJealousGirl
* CovertPervert: Maybe.
* FeminineWomenCanCook

* KatanasAreJustBetter: She can use two famous Japanese swords, the Zantetsu and Kikuichimonji.
* {{Keigo}} / JapaneseHonorifics: She uses them with everyone but Lina.

* MsExposition
* OddCouple: With Lina.

** Primary: RoyalRapier
** Secondary: Bow, MagicWand
** Tertiary: {{Spellbook}}, CoolSword, BladeOnAStick
* WhiteMagicianGirl: Although her main weapons are rapiers, Fia is the only character to consistently learn healing techniques, and her stats make her more appropriate for using magic than physical attacks.
* YamatoNadeshiko: She doesn't look the part but she has the SilkHidingSteel personality, she's a good cook, her weapons include archery and pole arms, and speaks with {{keigo}}.

!!Lina / Lyuri
!!!Voiced by: Hiromi Konno (JP), Creator/StephanieSheh (EN, PSP version)
[[quoteright:256:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lina-riviera_4666.jpg]]
->''A single arrow [[BadassAdorable can pierce through the sky and summon]] [[ShockAndAwe terrifying lightning]]. [[ThePollyanna She grips a tiny ray of hope]] [[OlderThanTheyLook with those small hands of hers]].''\\
-- Calendar disc flavor text

A Haine girl who's lived with Fia since she moved to Elendia two years ago. Lina joins up with Ein at the same time as Fia. Lina is cheerful, whimsical, and extremely immature--most of the time. She shows her occasional moments of brilliance and good judgment of character, and helps to cheer Ein up in his DarkestHour. She doesn't know much about everyday mundane things (like what kinds of wood are used to light her and Fia's own stove), but brings energy and drive to Ein's quest like no other. She doesn't have much affection for Ein initially, but depending on the actions of the player, she can fall in love with him by the end of the game.

Lina is actually quite a bit older than she looks, and her childishness is implied to be just an act to make her look more cutesy. In one scene, she claims to be a year older than Fia (who neither confirms nor denies it). Her surname is not given by Sting. [[{{Fanon}} Some fans hold her birthday]] to be November 22, the release date of the PSP version in Japan.

* AllThereInTheManual: Her circumstances are explained in one of the Precious Chapter voice dramas.
* BalefulPolymorph: In one of the dramas.
* BigEater: Complained about by Coco, a ''lot.''

* ImprobableWeaponUser: She learns special moves with ''FRUIT.''

!!Serene
!!!Voiced by: Creator/AiNonaka (JP), Paula Tiso (EN, PSP release)
[[quoteright:288:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/serene-riviera_8753.jpg]]

A native of Rosalina and a member of the Arcs, a race of Sprite. Serene's village was wiped out by Malice towards the beginning of the game when she was ordered by Hector to gather a thousand Sprites' souls. Ein, Fia, and Lina rescued her from Malice while exploring Lacrima Castle, and she joined up with them afterwards. Serene is the most boyish and rough-natured of the four Sprite girls accompanying Ein, and is friendly with Lina; the two tease each other back and forth over the course of the game. Serene secretly harbors considerable survivor's guilt about being the only Arc to live through the Rosalina massacre. Depending on the player's actions, she can fall in love with Ein by the end of the game.

The [[AudioAdaptation Precious Chapter drama CD]] features an installment that focuses on Serene's {{backstory}} and her life in Rosalina before the game.

Serene is stated to be about the same age as Ein, but her surname is not given by Sting. [[{{Fanon}} Some fans hold her birthday]] to be April 4, the release date of the PSP version in Europe.

* ACupAngst: According to her jealous internal monologue when rescuing Cierra from falling in Chapter 3 if Ein doesn't make it in time.

* BalefulPolymorph: In one of the dramas.
* TheBigGal
* {{Delinquent}}: In the HighSchoolAU drama.
* DullSurprise: Her English voice actress, in the PSP version. Ugh.
* FantasticRacism: Against demons, although considering her past, this is somewhat justified.
* GlassCannon: She's very powerful, but cannot take a magical punch, a fire punch, ''or'' an electric punch worth anything.
* HollywoodTonedeaf: She says she sucks at singing, but she can do it just fine if her buddies are in peril...
* LastOfHerKind
* NeverLearnedToRead: In the Japanese version of the game, she's stated to not be completely literate; in the English version, this was changed to her hating to read instead.
* PowerTrio: [[AllThereInTheManual The dramas]] establish that she used to have one with her best friends in Rosalina, [[AlphaBitch Polly]] and [[{{Nerd}} Tehse]].
* ThePrankster
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge

** Tertiary: WhipItGood, CoolSword, RoyalRapier

!!Cierra
!!!Voiced by: YukoGoto (JP), Vanessa Morley (EN, GBA version), Creator/MichelleRuff (EN, PSP version)
[[quoteright:281:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cierra-riviera_427.jpg]]

Known as the Scarlet Witch, Cierra is a [[WitchSpecies Witch]], and a magic researcher who normally lives in Wiese Forest. She joined Ein and the other girls while they explored the Nelde Ruins in search of one of the Accursed (which she mistook for Akurst and thought they were looking for magical herbs, at first!); she insisted on traveling with them in order to look for her "friend", Gateau--actually Ein's lost familiar, Rose. Cierra joins the party with a high level of affection for Ein, and is considered by fans to be one of the easiest characters to win over by the end of the game.

Cierra is the oldest of the girls who travel with Ein's party, and acts as an older sister to the others. Her magic, while quite powerful, sometimes tends to be of the hit-or-miss variety because Cierra herself can be quite absentminded. She gets lost easily and isn't very good at making potions, although she is an excellent chef. Although her age is not officially given, she seems to be at least 20 years old (the legal drinking age in Japan), as official and unofficial works both [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl tend to portray her drinking wine or beer]]. Her surname isn't officially given, either. [[{{Fanon}} Some fans hold her birthday]] to be November 25, the release date for the GBA version in Japan.


* BigDamnHeroes: In the audio drama ''The Melancholy of Millefeuille-chan?!''
-->''"What are you doing to my cute little Millefeuille?! '''[[GratuitousEnglish Hell Fire]]!'''"''
* BlackMagicianGirl
* CloudCuckooLander
* CoolBigSis
* CrashIntoHello: With Ein.
* CrazyCatLady
** KindheartedCatLover
* CuteWitch
* TheDitz / GeniusDitz
* FeminineWomenCanCook
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl
* IdiotHair: Cierra has a very, very small one.
* KillItWithFire
* MagicMisfire
* MightyGlacier / SquishyWizard: A combination of both. Due to having the highest base HP value and a lot of Overskills, Cierra has the highest possible HP total. Her MGC score is so high that you can cast magic at her all day and she won't even feel it--but ''poke'' her with a physical attack and half that giant HP bar is gone.
* MostCommonSuperpower: She has a sizeable bust which complements her fire-based magic powers very well. Serene in particular seems a bit envious; "huge" being the word of choice here.
* NiceHat
* NoSenseOfDirection
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Cierra sure knows a lot of factoids for someone who can seem so empty-headed...
* OneeSama: Of the smother-you-with-[[OneHeadTaller boobsquish-hugs]] variety.
* TaremeEyes
* WeaponOfChoice:
** Primary: MagicWand
** Secondary: {{Spellbook}}, WhipItGood

!!Rose R. Crawford
!!!Voiced by: Rika Komatsu (JP)
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rose-riviera_6397.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:350:In both feline and humanoid flavors.]]

Ein's familiar and ExpositionFairy in the first chapter. Rose was assigned to Ein to help him cope with being sent out right after being made a Grim Angel, and is often frustrated with his lack of knowledge about things she believes to be obvious. Although she teases Ein relentlessly, she does care for him deeply, and considers him to be her friend, not just her master. She is shown to have an interest in history, and is very respectful towards Ledah. If none of the heroines care about Ein enough, he returns to Asgard with Rose at the end of the game; all versions from the original GBA release on, however, do include a special ending for her (referred to by fans as her Good Ending or True Ending) that requires a base amount of Cierra's affection.

Rose doesn't like being equated with a cat because of her appearance, and is highly unamused when one of Cierra's potions robs her of her voice. While her age is not given, she is one of three characters from Riviera whose full name was revealed by Sting (and the only one whose full name is revealed in-game). [[{{Fanon}} Some fans hold her birthday]] to be October 18, the release date for the Special Edition of the PSP version in Japan.

* BadassBookworm: Go on, get her Overskill. She really is badass.
* {{Bokukko}}
* CatGirl: In her good ending.
* CrossdressingVoices: Although she's voiced by a woman, Rose has a very deep voice for a female character, and is often mistaken to be male (even by Ein).
* DemotedToExtra: Rose is often conspicuously absent in scenes from the voiced dramas, although she's in The Precious Chapter more than she was in the Epilogue Disc.
* DubNameChange: In the Japanese script, Cierra nicknames her Millefeuille. Probably to save space, {{Atlus}} changed this to "Gateau", a generic French word for cake instead of a specific French dessert.
* ExpositionFairy
* {{Familiar}}
* FirstGirlWins: In her endings.
* KillItWithFire: Her Overskill.
* OfficialCouple: With Ein, according to the official timeline and WordOfGod.
* OnlySaneWoman
* SamusIsAGirl
* TalkingAnimal
* TaremeEyes
* TeamPet: Or at least the girls think so.
* {{Tsundere}}
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Doesn't like the dark. Often gets sent out to investigate small dark spaces.

!!Ledah Rozwelli
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MasakazuMorita (JP)
[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ledah-riviera_7771.jpg]]

A second Grim Angel, dispatched along with Ein. He is much more experienced than Ein, and much more professional in his dealings with demons and traveling. He and Ein were separated at the end of the first chapter, after which Ledah continued to follow Hector's orders and prepare for the destruction of Riviera. His devotion to the gods' will (which he believes Hector to be the spokesperson of) leads to his confrontation with Ein, subsequent HeelFaceTurn, and final HeroicSacrifice. It is revealed at the end of chapter 6 that Ledah had to sacrifice his emotions to become a Grim Angel, although he does seem to retain some emotional capacity.

Not much of Ledah's background has been released, although his surname and Grim Angel registration number and class were given out with the Prologue Disc. His age is not given, but judging by his voice, he seems to be older than Ein at the very least. [[{{Fanon}} Some fans hold his birthday]] to be June 28, the release date for the GBA version in America.

* AllThereInTheManual: His last name and Grim Angel license, at least...
* {{Bishonen}}
* BladeOnAStick
* CrutchCharacter
* DemotedToExtra: Ledah is completely absent from the Precious Chapter CD.
* EmotionlessBoy: Literally, too.
* GuestStarPartyMember: In chapter 1 and, if certain conditions are met, chapter 8.
* HealingFactor: Recovers a small percentage of HP every turn, probably in order to make up for the way that he refuses to use all items other than Lorelei. This is much less impressive in chapter 8, where his healing rate can't always keep up with the amount of damage he takes.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Although Ledah's true allegiance to the gods never wavers, there's a little confusion as to what the gods' will ''really is.''
** HeelFaceDoorSlam: Poor thing.
* HeroicSacrifice
* JapanesePronouns: A critical part of his characterization; he confers his attitude of others through which pronouns he uses with them. It was largely lost in translation.
* KillItWithFire
* OurAngelsAreDifferent
* ShipTease: With Ein.
** GayOption: Played with, especially in chapter 8, but never comes to fruition due to Ledah's PlotlineDeath.
* TheStoic
** StoicWoobie
* StudentCouncilPresident: In the HighSchoolAU drama.
* TsurimeEyes
* WhatIsThisFeeling: [[WordOfGod According to his voice actor]], it's not that Ledah doesn't have ''any'' capacity to feel emotions, he just no longer understands how to interpret them.

!!Malice Ructor
!!!Voiced by: Mariko Suzuki
[[quoteright:256:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/malice-riviera_1113.jpg]]

A third Grim Angel, sent to tail Ein and Ledah by Hector. As compared to Ein and Ledah, Malice's loyalties lie only with Hector. She first encountered Ein directly while chasing Serene, and neither of them seemed to recognize each other; he did know who she was by their next meeting, however. Malice says that she gave up her future to become a Grim Angel, but it's eventually revealed by Hector that she failed to become a real Grim Angel and that she (like her {{Expy}} characters in ''YggdraUnion'' and ''KnightsInTheNightmare'') is an artificial Grim Angel with a fake Diviner; she was only his pawn, nothing more. Near the end of the game, she is sacrificed by Hector to resurrect Seth.

Malice's backstory and surname are revealed in one of the voiced dramas on the Epilogue Disc. Her age is never given. [[{{Fanon}} Some fans hold her birthday]] to be May 8, the release date of the PSP version in Australia.

* ADayInTheSpotlight: The sole serious voiced drama, ''Malice, Leaving Her Past'', which focuses exclusively on Malice's backstory.
* AllThereInTheManual
* AnAxeToGrind
* AnIcePerson
* BrokenBird
* DemotedToExtra: Malice is completely absent in the Precious Chapter CD.
* {{Expy}}: Malice has two--[[YggdraUnion #367]] ([[FanNickname sometimes called]] [[SevenIsNana Nana]]) and [[KnightsInTheNightmare Primea]]. Their personalities are nothing like hers, but all of them wear similar clothes and wield an artificial Diviner called Skadi (Toolus in Japan).
* FreudianExcuse: Malice has some... mommy issues.
* [[GratuitousForeignLanguage Gratuitous French]]: All of her [[LimitBreak Overskills]] except Blue Sophia, and many of her basic attacks.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: While Malice is a legitimate girl's name in France, it's ''not'' anywhere else.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent
* PrincessInRags
* StockholmSyndrome: Malice's life was already ruined by the time she ran into Hector, but he destroyed what was left of it for shits and giggles, and went on to treat her horribly when she wound up as his pawn. Malice still all but worships him.
* TragicMonster: Figuratively.
* TsurimeEyes
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds

!!Ursula
!!!Voiced by: Yuko Shioyama (JP)
[[quoteright:256:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ursula-riviera_1094.jpg]]

Defender of Riviera, Ursula is said to be the ghost of a woman who died in Ragnarok, but considering that this is claimed by Hector (and he's a lying liar who lies), her true origins remain shrouded in mystery in-game. She kidnapped Ein and gave him LaserGuidedAmnesia in order to convert him to her cause, and points him in the proper direction to start battling the Accursed. Later, after realizing that she was mistaken about Hector's views, Ursula contacts Ein via a dream to get him to protect her. She fades away at the end of the game, as her existence is linked with Seth's.

According to the [[AllThereInTheManual side materials]], Ursula was created by the gods as a defense mechanism to protect the Retribution--Seth is the embodiment of the gods' power, but to get at her one must first get past Ursula, and because they are symbiotic beings, killing Ursula would defeat the purpose. She is worshipped as a goddess by the Sprites.

* AllThereInTheManual
* BatmanGambit: Deciding to try to convert Ein in the first place, and then asking him whether or not he'll defend Riviera.
* BigGood
* TheChessmaster: One of the few unambiguously good one in all the ''VideoGame/DeptHeaven'' games.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: She and her fairies can do a lot of pretty impossible stuff as long as they're praying hard enough.
* EnemyWithout: Ursula and Seth seem to be opposite halves of the same concept.
* GodsHandsAreTied
* MindRape: ...''think'' about it for a minute.
* OmniscientMoralityLicense: Introduces herself to the player by attacking Ein and Ledah, kidnapping Ein, torturing him, and then brainwashing him. It was for a good cause, though, so nobody holds it against her.
* PhysicalGod: Technically demigoddess, but the Sprites don't care.
* RapunzelHair
* {{Stripperiffic}}
* TaremeEyes
* WingedHumanoid

!!Hector
!!!Voiced by: Creator/NoriakiSugiyama (JP)
[[quoteright:248:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hector-riviera_1331.jpg]]

A recurring character over the ''VideoGame/DeptHeaven'' series, Hector is one of the Seven Magi, and is finally the main villain of Riviera. He spent the past several millennia planning a takeover of Asgard, and set it into motion by getting Malice to revive demons in Riviera, giving him an excuse to send his LaserGuidedTykebomb trio down to actuate the Retribution and destroy Riviera, conveniently giving him the opportunity to grasp the gods' power for himself. Unfortunately for Hector, Ursula kidnapped and converted the weakest LaserGuidedTykebomb, Ein, and turned him into her own LaserGuidedTykebomb. Hector's [[GambitRoulette grandiose and complicated plan]] is brought to a screeching halt ForWantOfANail.

In addition to his role as main villain here, he has a cameo appearance in ''KnightsInTheNightmare'' and is referenced in ''YggdraUnion''.

As over the past two games in the series, Hector is shown having brought about the utter ruin of an innocent WideEyedIdealist, narrowly avoiding a TheDogBitesBack from said WideEyedIdealist-turned-MagnificentBastard via interference by some trusty, well-meaning [[UnwittingPawn Unwitting Pawns]] ([[spoiler:the Royal Army]] in ''YggdraUnion''), abusing his test subjects, and sending the gods' most devout servant on a suicide mission that ends in her fall from grace, this man has garnered a respectable amount of fan hate. Taking him down at last is kind of satisfying.

* AGodAmI
* AllThereInTheManual
* TheChessmaster
* EvilLaugh: While this doesn't occur in-game, it's played by his ''seiyuu'' in one of the Epilogue Disc dramas.
* EvilSorcerer
* HiddenEyes
* InTheHood
* InsufferableGenius: Hector is a skilled enough magician to accomplish feats thought to be impossible even in Asgard (such as creating the dimensional link between Asgard and Riviera that we know as the Maze of Shadows in-game), and he's got about twice as much ego as he does skill.
* KarmaHoudini: Up until he gets smacked in the face with Ein, at least.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor
* MindRape
* PowerPerversionPotential: We're talking about a man with a confirmed [[AGodAmI god complex]] and incredible political power who just so happens to wield a staff called the ''Tentacle Rod''...
