[[caption-width-right:250:Revya (male)]]

The HeroicMime of our story. [[PurelyAestheticGender Gender]] and [[HelloInsertNameHere name are determined by you]] [[note]]though she appears in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'' as a female with the name of Revya)=[[/note]]. As far as personality goes, Revya is apparently a fairly nice person and not as quiet as you'd expect for a silent protagonist. Also, increasingly sarcastic. However, Revya is almost as mysterious of an entity as Gig, the Master of Death that almost destroyed the world.

After the primary and apparently canon story route, a different version of events is unlocked with Revya having a much less pleasant personality.

[[caption-width-right:250:Revya (female)]]
----
* AncestralWeapon: The Onyx Blade. [[spoiler:It belongs to the Median bloodline and Revya is able to wield it because his/her soul is that of Median's dead son.]]
* BecomingTheMask: Becomes noticeably darker and more mean-spirited towards the end of the game. The characters notice and remark on it, indicating that some of Gig's personality is likely leaking into Revya (and, by association, vice versa).
* {{BFS}}: Due to the sprite sizes, the Onyx Blade is almost as long as Revya is tall
* BlackSwordsAreBetter
* CanonName: Revya, of course.
* ChainmailBikini: Female Revya. Who, for some reason, is wearing nothing but a bra to cover her Thorax in her official art.
* CharacterDevelopment: As the story goes on, [[DeadpanSnarker Gig's]] personality rubs off on Revya, and thus gets a few lines like this.
--> '''Revya''' (In response to Levin sniffing out an enemy): Woof, Woof, doggy.
--> '''Revya''' (When Danette suggests hotpods will fall from the sky): That's a pretty stupid thing to say.
* CastingAShadow: Two of her techs are called Demon Blast and Demon Force, and both are about as dark-looking as their name implies.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan
* CoolSword: The Onyx Blade.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Red hair and red eyes.
* CuttingOffTheBranches: While Revya can be male/female depending on the player's choice, Revya appears as a girl in Disgaea 3.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Revya's still a good person despite the trope above. [[spoiler:Averted in the Demon Path.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Becomes much more noticeable as the story progresses, but does show shades of this even early on.
* DemonicPossession: Sort of. While Gig does inhabit her body, he doesn't have any control due to Revya's strong will and a seal placed by Layna.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler: After eating the soul of Gestahl,]] Revya gains the Demon Force ground tech during the last battle of the normal campaign. It can be used on repeat plays during the whole game, however.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: In the Danette ending, she displays feelings for Revya regardless if Revya is a guy or girl. Although she acts more flustered in the male version and treats her like a BFF threatening to 'tickle' her in the female one.
* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler: To Levin]] in the Demon Path.
* EvilerThanThou: [[spoiler:At the end of the Demon Path, Revya goes on to devour Gig and destroy the entire world.]]
* FriendlyRival: Towards Danette.
* GenderBender: Female Revya. [[spoiler:She was Lord Median's son in her past life, and reincarnated as a female.]] Of course, it's averted if you chose male.
* TheHero
** BigBad: In the Demon Path.
* HeroesPreferSwords: The choice in weaponry was already decided for him/her, though.
* HiddenElfVillage: Grew up in one for ten years.
* IAmWho: [[spoiler:Revya is [[TheReveal revealed]] to be a World Eater and reincarnation of Median's child by the real Layna in the world of Drazil.]]
* InterspeciesRomance: Depends on the ending, played straight in the [[spoiler: Danette]] and[[spoiler: Juno]] male endings and the [[spoiler:Levin]] and[[spoiler: Gig]] female endings, [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer implied]] in the [[spoiler: Danette]] female ending.
* KidWithTheLeash
* KnightOfCerebus: The amount of evil committed by Revya in the Demon Path is the main reason why it's so dark.
* KryptoniteFactor: Revya's most notable bad match ups is the [[DanceBattler Gypsies]] and the [[GameBreaker Gideons]].
* LaughingMad: [[spoiler: In the Bad End]] of the Demon Path.
* JackOfAllStats: Bordering on LightningBruiser; Revya is one of the most balanced and easy to use of the characters in the game, he/she has very few poor match ups, and his/her ground Techs are all around useful.
* HeroicMime: While she does have dialog options, Revya does not have any voiced dialog.
** Lampshaded in Disgaea 3 where Mao gives her a voice for use in battle and wonders why anyone would make a game where the main character doesn't talk.
* MayDecemberRomance: With Juno in the Male Revya's ending.
* MadeOfIron: Possibly. Gig remarks after [[spoiler:Endorph destroys Raksha with Psycho Burgundy .]] that despite being the closest to the explosion s/he was unscathed by the blast.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Doesn't get any worse than [[spoiler:'''The Devourlord''']]
* OmnicidalManiac: In the Demon Path. [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant To put it lightly]].
* OnlySaneMan: Most of the time. However, being with [[TheDitz Danette]] and [[OmnicidalManiac Gig]] for so long has some effects. [[spoiler:Obviously, averted in the demon path.]]
* PowerAtAPrice: Could easily destroy the World Eaters on a caprice should he/she choose to use Gig's powers. However the more Revya uses the more likely Gig will devour his/her soul.
* PurelyAestheticGender: The choice of gender only affects the multiple endings in the slightest of ways.
* TheQuietOne: All of Revya's responses are short and to the point.
* RedBaron: [[spoiler: The Devourlord]]
* RedHeadedHero
* SealedEvilInACan: In the Demon Path's [[spoiler: Good Ending.]]
* SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum: [[spoiler:[[ForTheEvulz "It doesn't matter. It was fun."]]]]
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Demon Blast. Let's just say it involves BeamSpam and [[spoiler: in the Demon Path, it was the FinishingMove Revya used to destroy all of existence]].
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:He/She ends up being Virtuous and Haephnes' unknowing pawn in restoring the cycle of souls.]]
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: [[spoiler:If you chose for Revya to be a male, he ends up married to Danette in her ending.]]
* VillainProtagonist: In the Demon Path.
** VillainousFriendship: With Gig in the Demon Path. [[spoiler:In the good ending, Vigilance even admits that as horrible as their actions were, he definitely had a lot of fun being with Revya.]]
* WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou
* WhereIWasBornAndRazed: If you decide to go through the Demon Path, Revya's first act of villainy is to kill everyone in his/her village.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Revya devours Gig]] in the Demon Path.

!! Gig
!!!Voiced by: Creator/AkiraSasanuma (JP), Creator/YuriLowenthal (EN)
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/soulcradle19Gig_681.jpg]]

Gig is a legendary monster, an invading Master of Death who laid waste to the world before being sealed by the daughter of the legendary Median the Conqueror, a young woman named Layna. Though she apparently fell during the battle, she is still alive as the leader of the village Revya hails from.

Though loud, vicious and constantly urging Revya towards murder and mayhem, much to his dismay he can't force Revya to do anything. Furthermore, as they get closer, odd memories show up of an identical looking man with a completely opposite personality that Gig does not recognize.

-----
* AlmightyJanitor: Gig is a Master of Death, technically a subordinate to the World Rulers and equal to a Master of Life. He is more powerful than either, [[spoiler:killing both Drazil, Gamma ''and'' Joules combined in a SingleStrokeBattle in the normal ending. In the Demon Path, Revya uses Gig's full power to kill Drazil and Haephnes, and neither of them are able to stop him/her.]]
* {{Badass}}: Anyone who can give Zetta a run for his money in power and trash-talking has earned this.
** Its to the point where even when he's a DLC character he still doesn't use all of his strength and gives the other characters a hard time without breaking a sweat.
* BadBoss: Thuris and Raksha both mention that when they were rampaging through Haephness that Gig was very abusive towards them, hence part of why they want him dead.
* BigEater: The Vitali ending says that he stayed a restaurant that served hotpods for three days and ate its entire stock.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy
* CameBackWrong
* ChewingTheScenery: Gig does this a lot in the flashbacks.
* ClusterFBomb: Gig does not have the cleanest mouth around.
* ComedicSociopath: For the most part, there are some points it's NOT played humorously.
* ConsummateLiar: Although he does drop hints when he's lying, no one picks up on it. It helps that the target of most of his lies is [[TheDitz Danette]].
** BlatantLies: It's always obvious when he's lying or hiding something.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DealWithTheDevil: Tries this with Revya.
* [[spoiler:DeathEqualsRedemption: And also earns him a reincarnation.]]
* DontFearTheReaper: [[spoiler:As Vigilance]].
* TheDragon: [[spoiler:To Revya in the demon path. He steps in to take over when you're indisposed and is generally your right-hand-man.]]
** DevourTheDragon: [[spoiler: Revya devours him in the "good" ending]] of the demon path.
* FallenHero: Was tossed down rather than fell.
* EvilIsHammy: [[spoiler: Vigilance was pretty restrained, Gig is the single hammiest character in the game.]]
* EvilPlan: He plots to seize Revya's body, and doesn't hide it for a second. [[spoiler:He finally gets his chance during the final showdown with Drazil, but thanks to his CharacterDevelopment, does so only to ''destroy'' Drazil, knowingly killing himself in the process and saving Revya's life.]]
* {{Flanderization}}: When he appears as DLC in ''Disgaea4'', [[spoiler: he's basically a cross between his good and evil personalities, with him being AxCrazy, but getting talked out of destroying the Netherworld by [[CuteMonsterGirl Desco]].]]
* TheGrimReaper: Gig is a 'master of death' a being who should ''technically'' do the standard duties of the grim reaper.
* HeelFaceTurn: The exploration of this is the gist of Gig's CharacterDevelopment, [[spoiler:and played straight in the end.]]
* HeroicComedicSociopath
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]
* HeyYou: He rarely ever calls anyone by their given name, but if he does have to call them by something, it's usually very insulting ('Stupid Cow' for Danette and 'Sister Loving Man Cow' for Levin). The only exception is Revya, (who he calls 'Kid' or 'Soulmate' if he's being nice), The World Eaters, and Drazil.
** Well really nobody refers to Revya by name, Gig even lampshades this in Danette's ending.
* HypocriticalHumor: In Danette's ending he comments that it's not nice that she never refers to Revya by name. Yes, the guy who not only curses every other scene, but refers to vast majority of the cast by insulting nicknames, tries to call somebody rude for not using someone's name.
* IdiotBall: In the Normal Path he frequently tries to convinces Revya to give him control and just as many times says he'll destroy the world if he gets control, so not surprisingly Revya always refuses.
* TheImp
* JerkAss -> JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* TheLancer: Personality-wise, at least. Gig is verbose where Revya is mostly silent, sadistic and selfish where Revya is kind and selfless, cynical and sarcastic where Revya is naive and honest, and very fond of playing shoulder devil to his 'soulmate'.
* LaughablyEvil: Easily the funniest character in the game.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler: when Gig was revived by Drazil, all of his memories as Vigilance were erased, though over the course of the game he gradually regains them.]]
* LargeHam: Especially in the English version.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: During [[spoiler:the Good Ending of the Demon Path, Gig snaps back to his senses as Vigilance and despairs over the crimes he committed as Gig, vowing to set things right and atone.]]
** HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:In the other ending, Gig quite abruptly regrets giving Revya so much power when Revya uses it all to ''devour him.'']]
* {{Noble Demon}}: Half way through the game when Gig gets his {{Character Development}} he becomes this.
* OmnicidalManiac: As he often says, he wants to destroy everything, except hotpods.
* PopCulturedBadass: He's phoney descriptions of the World Eaters are basically ShoutOuts to Superman, the Martian Man Hunter, and The Flash. Revya even lampshades that he got the first one "from somewhere else."
* SinisterScythe
* SmallNameBigEgo: While he can back up all the bragging he makes about how strong he is, he thinks to highly of his intelligence to the point where he at times seems to fancy himself as the OnlySaneMan.
* TechnicalPacifist: [[spoiler:As Vigilance. It's no wonder Gig wouldn't want to go back to his normal personality.]]
* ThemeMusicPowerUp: "BAD BOYS" plays = Gig will be sarcastic. "Desperado" plays = Gig will own someone. "Rockin' Rocks" plays = Gig will ''destroy'' someone.
* TokenEvilTeammate
* TookALevelInDumbass: [[spoiler: As Vigilance he was reasonably intelligent. As Gig, he's total idiot.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Hotpods
* {{Tsundere}}: According to Disgaea 4.
* VillainousFriendship: With Revya in the Demon Path. [[spoiler:In the good ending, as horrified as Vigilance is of all the things he's committed as Gig, he still fondly remembers his time with Revya and hopes that they get together and do something fun should they ever meet again.]]
* VillainProtagonist: He serves as the other main character to Revya but he remains a villain for the half the game before his {{character development}} steps in and then it switches to Anti-Hero at the very least.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: He looks like your classic white haired psycho and certainly acts genocidal at first, but mellows out some as time goes on.
* YouWillBeSpared: Hotpods

!! Danette
!!!Voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito (JP), Creator/AmandaWinnLee (EN)
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/soulcradleDanette_7865.jpg]]

Danette is Revya's best and perhaps only friend in the tiny village. She is a Sepp, a race of humanoid with horns, hooves and immense speed. Thanks to being quite dim, Gig starts calling her "Stupid Cow" and she returns the favor with "You In There." She has no magical powers and her weapons, though magical, are not nearly as impressive as the Onyx Blade. Despite that, her speed and power are not to be trifled with: She's beaten Revya in almost every duel they've ever had.

-----

* ActionGirl
* BadassNormal: It's not emphasized much due to being a complete idiot, but she is in fact an amazing fighter, both instory and in gameplay. Instory, she apparently almost always beats Revya before she acquires the Onyx Blade and is entrusted with [[spoiler:killing Revya if Gig takes her over.]] In gameplay, she has three excellent tactics, good offense, high speed, high act and acceptable defense.
* BiTheWay: Her ending varies very little depending on gender. If male, she says the protagonist will have to learn how to take care of babies with the implication that she'll be having them. If female, she's less nervous there, but with either gender the last thirty seconds or so end with her blushing and stuttering awkwardly because she drew the protagonist in their underwear in a letter to Euphoria, hinting that she never calls them by their name because it would be embarrassing.
* {{Break the Cutie}}: Regardless of the path taken, Danette is going to go through hell.
** In the normal route [[spoiler: the memories of her parent's death hits her near the end of the game and while she doesn't react originally, the fact that a few minutes later her substitute parent Layna is stabbed in the back by the friend she's been traveling with the majority of the game. And if Layna's death doesn't break her, Gig's sacrifice does when she finally breaks down into real tears when its all over.]]
** In the demon route [[spoiler: she witnesses Revya go crazy as s/he slaughters everyone she knows and loves and has to take up a new appearance to make sure no one knows who she is. She's the only one who continues to believe in Revya until the end even knowing it's hopeless. She even lets Revya kill her so she can become a Crimson Tear. In the good demon ending, she stays with Revya in the Onyx blade as his/her only friend while she's dead for good in the bad demon ending.]]
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Hinted at in her ending. [[BiTheWay Regardless of gender.]]
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: Her mother and father were both very loving parents.
* {{Determinator}}: She will follow Layna's orders no matter what is. [[spoiler: Going so far as to force her way through barely stable portal to another world.]]
* TheDitz: Gig's nickname for her isn't too far off the mark. Even Revya starts having difficulty defending her after Gig rubs off on her a little.
* FriendlyRival: Towards Revya.
** VitriolicBestBuds: A little less on the friendly side initially.
* HappilyAdopted: Despite the trope above, she still considers Virtuous to be a grand-mother figure.
* HeyYou: It's claimed early on that the only person whose name she can remember is Layna's. She won't call her best friend by name and continues to call Gig 'You in there' even after [[spoiler:he's not in there anymore.]]
* IGaveMyWord: Promised Layna to watch over Revya and intervene if Gig became too much for her to resist.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Male Revya in her ending. Same with Female Revya if you [[LesYay interpret the ending differently...]]
* IsItSomethingYouEat: Revolution? Is it edible?
* KnifeNut: Her WeaponOfChoice.
** DualWielding: She uses two.
* TheLancer
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler: Her parents were in a religious war with the Thurists.]]
* {{Small Name Big Ego}}: Especially at the beginning when she constantly insults Revya and considers herself better than him/her. Gig usually puts her in her place though.
* SuperSpeed: A racial trait of Sepps.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A when it comes to Revya and Gig. Tybe B with it comes to Layna.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Lady Layna.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]
* YouAreWorthHell: [[spoiler:In the Good Ending of the Demon Path, Revya gets sealed into the Oynx Blade. But Danette, not wanting her (former) best friend to have to suffer alone, has Dio seal her soul into the blade as well despite the fact that Revya killed her earlier. And to top it all off, she sings the lullaby Revya sung to her when she was little, so that (s)he can sleep better.]]

!! Levin
!!!Voiced by: Creator/TatsuhisaSuzuki (JP), Creator/LiamOBrien (EN)
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/soulcradle24Levin_1179.jpg]]

A Sepp and one of Christophe's guards that is always immensely worried about his sister. Coupled with his rash behavior and slightly stupid attitude, he tends to cause a lot of problems for the group. He's generally partnered with Vitali, a spy and cleric.

-----

* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: Seems to have become this in his epilogue.]]
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler:There's hints of it after he regains his true body, particularly the fact that he's still somewhat flustered around Trish. If your RelationshipValues are high enough, Euphoria tells Revya that she can't really tell the difference between Levin and Raksha anymore, which eventually leads into his epilogue, where he and Revya WalkTheEarth together.]]
* TheBigGuy: Alongside Grunzford.
* CannotSpitItOut: He has a crush on Trish, but can't get the words out, [[spoiler: even when he's revealed to Raksha, his feelings appear to genuine. He's unable to do the same with Female Revya during his epilogue.]]
* TheDitz: Bless him.
* DoggedNiceGuy: Towards Trish.
* HeterosexualLifePartners/ RelationshipUpgrade: His epilogue suggests the former for male Revya and the latter for female Revya.
* HiddenDepths
* HopelessSuitor: Towards Trish.
* HotBlooded: Even has an ability named this.
* IdiotHero: Levin isn't the brightest guy around, but he makes up for it in passion.
* JourneyToFindOneself: [[spoiler: After getting revived at the end of the game, Levin, who up until that point considered himself nothing more than the empty husk used by Raksha to achieve his goal, now questions why someone as seemingly pointless as him was brought back to life. His epilogue shows that he sets out WalkingTheEarth in hopes of finding some meaning to his unwarranted second chance at life.]]
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Not exactly fond of Endorph getting close to his sister.
* TheNoseKnows: He's able to track Thuris using this. Gig and even Revya naturally call him out on this. [[spoiler: This is because he's a World Eater though and knows the location of the others.]]
* PowerFist: His WeaponOfChoice.
* SuperSpeed: Sepps share this trait, though Levin is especially known for this.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Vitali.
* UnexplainedRecovery: [[spoiler: Played for drama. Levin gets revived near the end of the game, to the confusion of everyone including himself. This is a big deal because Levin wasn't actually a person, but a soulless body being worn by the Soul Eater Raksha putting on a false persona, thus giving no reason for him to come back as Levin. This leads to him having an identity crisis and ultimately pulling off a HeelFaceTurn of sorts.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler: The fact that most of his personality traits are indeed an act, and he is actually a soulless body being occupied by Raksha, one of the three World Eaters.]]
* WalkingTheEarth: [[spoiler: His epilogue reveals this to be his fate after returning to life. Due to having absolutely no idea why he's alive again and too guilt-ridden to return to see his friends and family, Levin goes on a journey to find the meaning to his existence. Depending on how close they were with him, Revya can join him.]]

!! Vitali
!!!Voiced by: Creator/DerekStephenPrince (EN)

Vitali is a friend of Levin's and a spy for Christophe. He enjoys cooking and wishes to open a restaurant.

-----

* CombatMedic
* TheInfiltration: Christophe asks him to keep tabs on Revya and Gig. He also infiltrates the cult of Thuris.
** ReverseMole:[[spoiler:Despite that, he and Christophe are on Revya's side all the way, which makes it all the more surprising who the real [[TheMole mole]] is.]]
* IronChef
* OnlySaneMan: Alongside Revya. And like Revya, he has his wackier moments.
* TheSmartGuy
* StealthHiBye: Ridiculously skilled at this to the point that it freaks everyone, including Gig.
* SupremeChef
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: "I did NOT pretend to be a girl." [[spoiler:Funny, considering his [[{{Crossdresser}} epilogue.]]]]
* TheSpymaster: For Christophe.
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: His WeaponOfChoice.
* YouDoNotWantToKnow: How he found out that [[spoiler:Kanan is actually male.]]

!! Juno
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Juno-Capture_9698.jpg]]

Juno is one of the Nereid leaders and is immensely protective of her adopted "[[WifeHusbandry son]]" Penn. She's aggressive, but fairly reasonable.

-----

* CommutingOnABus: Stops appearing with the main characters in the storyline after defeat Feinne for the most part, but she's still available in gameplay at least.
* DubNameChange: Her name in the Japanese version is Jost (Pronounced [[NoPronunciationGuide Youst]]).
* HumansAreBastards: The 'humans are untrustworthy' subversion. Is willing to judge on an individual basis however.
* InterspeciesRomance: Nereids require a male from another species in order to reproduce.
* MamaBear
* MayDecemberRomance: With Male Revya in her ending. Planned with Penn otherwise.
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Nereids are a OneGenderRace of mermaids that can walk on land.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: Her WeaponOfChoice.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: With Male Revya in her ending.
* WifeHusbandry: Major player in the Nereid's plan with Penn.
* {{Yandere}}: A mild version of this for Penn.

!! Grunzford
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/soulcradle25Grunzford_2385.jpg]]

Grunzford is a grumpy old Redflank, a giant bull man. He used to live in the same village as Revya, but left in protest due to Layna's plan to fuse Gig to a human host. He is not very talkative when it comes to explaining why he's working with the group.

-----

* AnAxeToGrind
* ALoadOfBull
* TheBigGuy
* CoolOldGuy
* GeniusBruiser: [[spoiler: he managed to pull a BatmanGambit on the Devourlord, as his personal Demon Path CMOA.]]
* GrumpyOldMan: Mostly because he feel the youth need to learn to mind their manners, especially young Sepps like Levin and Danette.
* MightyGlacier
* TheObiWan
* PromotionToParent: For Trish.
* RetiredBadAss: He has since left the protection of the village to the his fellow Redflanks, but he can still kick ass.
* ScarsAreForever: He's ''covered'' in them.
* TeamDad
* WhatTheHellHero: Makes it very clear that no one, especially himself, will accept Devourlord back if he/she chooses to say he/she wants to go back to the way things were. Considering that he/she and Gig spent the entire game killing and oppressing everyone in their path, he has every right to be pissed.

!! "Dio"
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Odie-Capture_8967.jpg]]

Dio of the Evil Eye is a hereditary name and title held by a mighty clan of dracosages, known to travel with with the undead Blazing Gestahl and a pair of wolves known as Yavis and Parin. However, he seems strangely incompetent when confronted and is not taken seriously by anyone. He is a recurring boss fight in the game.

-----

* AffablyEvil: Gestahl doesn't seem like that bad (or threatening) of a guy at all. [[spoiler: That's because he's actually a hotpod farmer named Vangogh who Odie convinced to pretend to be Gestahl. The real Gestahl is a different case ''entirely''.]]
* BoomStick: His WeaponOfChoice.
* ButtMonkey
* CowardlyLion
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He's actually a pretty skilled sorcerer, though he's crippled by an incredible inferiority complex and a [[WeakButSkilled lack of inborn talent]].
** TookALevelInBadass: In the Demon Path [[spoiler: (being able to do things like break Revya's dominion over Vangou), to the point where even Dio was impressed by his growth.]]
* CutsceneIncompetence: While everyone in the plot makes a big deal about how weak and useless he is, he's actually pretty powerful mechanically.
* DubNameChange: His name in the Japanese version is Yodo.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: He is quite embarrassed of his real name, which is [[spoiler: discovered to be Odie when Revya is unable to dominate him as 'Dio'.]]
* EvilIsDumb: And '''how'''.
* TheFaceless: [[spoiler: Outside of his epilogue]], he never takes off the lizard mask.
* GoldfishPoopGang: Through the first half of the game.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Befriends and joins Revya's group]] about halfway through the main plot.
* RedemptionPromotion: Goes from SympatheticIneffectualVillain to one of your main characters, though is still a ButtMonkey.
* SavageWolves: Completely subverted in Yavis and Parin. They don't seem very bad at all. [[spoiler:Mostly because they aren't the real ones, who are under the command of the real Dio]].
* ShockAndAwe: What his BoomStick shoots out.
* SiblingRivalry: [[spoiler: He has one with his much more powerful brother, the ''real'' Dio.]]
* SlaveToPR: He starts off the game as a highway robber that depends entirely on his family's reputation to scare people so he won't have to fight them. Unfortunately he starts out in an area where [[WrongGenreSavvy no one knows of the Dio family.]]
* SquishyWizard
* TookALevelInBadass: A bit in the Normal Path. [[spoiler: Big time in the Demon Path.]]
* TheUnfavorite: [[spoiler: Disowned by his family for his younger and more talented brother.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Just knowing that [[spoiler: he joins your party is a spoiler for the whole first half of the plot.]]
* WithFriendsLikeThese: The party is more than happy to make fun of his helplessness. Even Pinot and Agrippa treat him like a child. Possibly justified since they're about the same age. Good ol' Sluggo.

[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/soulcradle49Tricia_9319.jpg]]

Tricia is the daughter of an extremely rich merchant. She's very idealistic and kind, but also naive and overly trusting. She was helped by Grunzford in the past and seems to consider him a mentor while Levin has a crush on her that he never has the nerve to act on. She prefers to be called Trish.

-----

* {{Break the Cutie}}: Both paths aren't that nice to her [[spoiler: but she only makes it out alive in one of them.]]
** In the normal path her adoptive father gets kidnapped and she has to watch him get murdered by Shauna [[spoiler: this was actually a very good thing.]] Then later [[spoiler: she finds out that she had an older sister and witnesses her death to Scarlet Iago. Finally the guy that was crushing in other turns out to be the third World Eater and before she can talk to Levin and get him to change his mind, she's teleported out of the area resulting in the battle that would kill Levin. She then mourns for his death.]]
** In the demon path [[spoiler: She gets raped by her adoptive father resulting in her going insane. It won't be long before she finally takes her own life from the horror she's been through.]]
* TheChick

* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:In the Demon Path, she gets raped by Hawthorne, but manages to escape death thanks to Shauna. She becomes increasingly insane and suicidal until her death.]]


!! Pinot and Agrippa

Pinot and Agrippa are probably the most minor members of the party. They are acquaintances of "Dio" and rather like him, though they don't respect him either.

-----

* AscendedExtra: In the Demon Path, while in the normal one they play almost no role.
* CrossdressingVoices: Agrippa's voiced by Barbara Goodson
* OlderThanTheyLook
* OurAngelsAreDifferent
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: Agrippa
* ThoseTwoGuys
* WhamEpisode: [[spoiler: The fun and games in the Demon Path stop once Agrippa is killed with little warning.]]


!! [[VideoGame/GrimGrimoire Lujei Piche]]

An unexpected unlockable character, Lujei escaped her world and starts exploring others, screwing them up in the process. It appears she has a connection to Endorph...

-----

* BackFromTheDead: Unclear, she was a ghost in her own game
* BerserkButton: Being reminded of her death by poisoning sent her into a psychotic fit of rage.
* BoobsOfSteel: More of the GlassCannon type. She can throw down some powerful magic. Also, she's quite stacked, giving Shauna and Alexemia a run for their money.
* CloudCuckooLander: Hoo-boy, she's such a nut case that even Gig is freaked out by her.
* {{Flanderization}}: YMMV on this, since she didn't have a lot of screen time in ''VideoGame/GrimGrimoire''.
* GlassCannon: Has the best INT attacks out of your playable characters. Can't take a hit worth a dime.
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: She sent Sulfer back Ivoir, rendering everything the cast of Videogame/PhantomBrave did to banish him in the first place pointless, and she never suffers any repercussions for it.]]
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: Her Special Attack.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Just ask Mevy, the talking skull of her dead lover that she carries around on her staff.
* PowerFloats
* PsychoticManchild: An extremely violent one that can barely go a few words without talking about murder.
* ShoutOut: All of her movesets? They're all of the Arcane Summons from ''VideoGame/GrimGrimoire''. Which goes into Irony levels due to the fact that her student learned Necromancy from her. That could mean Lujei had some skills when she was alive.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:Specifically, she's the one who sent Sulfur back to the world of Videogame/PhantomBrave as a BonusBoss, rendering the sacrifices involved pointless. Endorph was not happy to hear this.]]
* StableTimeLoop: [[spoiler: During the flashback where Median kills Vilgilance, if you answer "You must've been pissed" you find out that Lujei sends you back in time to fight Median. If you win, you find out that thanks to this, Virtuous finds out a way to fuse souls, thus making the plan of fusing Gig's and Revya's soul possible. Which also gave Drazil two souls for the last two World Eaters, Thuris and Raksha. So in short... Lujei helped SAVE the world! ...And gave Drazil the two souls he needed to create the last two death machines... But hey, it's Lujei.]]
* AWizardDidIt: She IS the Wizard.
* {{Yandere}}

[[folder:Other Protagonists]]
!! Haephnes

Haephnes is the goddess of the world which shares her name, one of the two chief gods ranking above those such as the masters of life and death. She is very soft, gentle and motherly.

-----

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: [[spoiler:She's a DimensionLord, like Drazil, though prefers to have her adopted child kick ass with the BrainwashedandCrazy Master of Death as part of a BatmanGambit.]]
* BigGood: Alongside Virtuous, she's trying to fix her world.
* DimensionLord
* GodIsGood: [[spoiler: To the inhabitants of her world, she's a benign entity.]]


!! Lady Layna
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn (EN)
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/LaynaVirtuous-Capture_6663.jpg]]

Lady Layna is an elderly woman that is the leader of the village where the game begins. Two centuries before, she sacrificed herself to seal away Gig because she could not kill him. Though she apparently died in that fight, she is still around even in the present, though she sleeps for extended periods to conserve strength. She is a mentor for Revya and Danette, the latter of whom seems to almost worship her. She's more manipulative than she lets on.

-----

* [[spoiler:AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: She is the Master of Life. She may not fight anymore, but she's helped Layna beat Gig, helped Revya and Gig KILL Median, and can make you stay dead for real.]]
* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead: Both paths, the regular after she's killed by Levin/Raksha and in the Demon Path after she's killed by Revya the start of the game. Likely because she's the Master of Life]]
* BatmanGambit: The plot of the game is one crafted by her to solve the real problem with the world.
* BenevolentBoss: A kind grandmother figure for the village.
* BigGood
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She can permanently block people's ability to be [[spoiler:reborn]] if angered.
* TheChessmaster: Rare heroic one.
* EccentricMentor: A very rare female example.

* [[spoiler: LoadBearingBoss: Rare heroic example in the Median Bad Ending, where after he defeats Revya, he also kills Virtuous, and with the world's Masters of Life And Death dead, it fades out existence.]]
* TheObiWan
* OneSteveLimit: Averted.
* [[spoiler:ReallySevenHundredYearsOld]]


!! Christophe
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Christophe-Capture_9004.jpg]]

Christophe is a wealthy merchant who runs his own town, which acts as a mission hub for the game. He is interested by Revya and Gig and employs the pair to handle some work around the area, which coincides with their own goals. Gig does not trust him since he's keeping secrets and not even trying to hide the fact, but he does mean well.

-----

* BigDamnHeroes: The guy comes in with a small army to help Revya during their fight against Feinne the second time.
* DemotedToExtra: He gets only one scene in the Demon Path, after that, you never hear from him again.
* [[GoodSmokingEvilSmoking Good Smoking]]: Smokes a pipe.
* HeroicBSOD Has a minor one after [[spoiler: Cuthbert kills himself out of guilt]]. He picks himself together quickly, though.
* MyGreatestFailure: It's suggested that he betrayed his best friend Lobo when they were younger, thus causing the latter to become evil.
* NonActionGuy: Doesn't directly fight himself, but supplies soldiers for Revya.
* SelfMadeMan: Is successful due to his honest work ethic.
* TheTeamBenefactor


!! Galahad
!!!Voiced by: Creator/DerekStephenPrince (EN)
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Galahad-Capture_9539.jpg]]

Galahad is a chevalier for Raide and at the start of the game is on duty watching Feinne, though he's sulky and self centered. After he loses a fight to the protagonist, he is discharged by Thorndyke, something he resents for most of the story.

-----

* [[spoiler:BreakTheHaughty: In the Demon Path, big time.]]
* CharacterDevelopment
* {{Envy}}[=/=]TheStarscream: Towards Thorndyke. He starts taking a level in badass after realizing Thorndyke was a really noble guy [[spoiler:who was unfairly executed. In the Demon Path, however, when Thorndyke is forced to join Revya, he ridicules him.]]
* EvilIsDumb
* HeelFaceTurn
* OutOfFocus: In the Normal path, after showing remarkable growth up to the fight with Feinne, he quite suddenly drops out of the storyline at about the same time as Juno.
** Justified; he was elected to help rebuild Raide after Feinne lazered it to the ground.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:Galahad becomes the only real source of humor in the Demon Path because of the ''spectacular'' way he loses it.]]
* RedemptionPromotion: Becomes the Prime Minister of New Raide.
* TookALevelInBadass: To a certain extent, he's considerably more courageous just before the fight with Feinne.
* WarmUpBoss: The first real foe the player faces, Galahad still isn't much of a threat.


!! Alexemia

Queen of the Nereids and the mother to them all. Though she can't walk on land, she has Juno be her eyes and ears for her in the outside world. She has immense healing powers, though she cannot use them freely.

-----

* CastFromHP: She has a miraculous healing power, but it uses up a bit of her life force.
* DemotedToExtra: Only gets one scene in the Demon Path, sadly, and it's being summoned to heal everyone after Revya beats the crap out of them.
* HealingHands
* HerHeartWillGoOn: Admits that she was in love with someone in the Demon Path(Normal Path hinted that her lover was one of the kings of Raide). It's implied that she wishes to see him.
* KarenStrassman
* MsFanservice: Alexemia is practically naked, for Haephnes sake! She's only wearing a crown and a freakin' seashell bra.
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Averted, somewhat. She's more of the standard mermain since she can't last on land too much, and she has the fish lower half.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* SeashellBra: Takes it a step further; Alexemia has ''Seashell nipple-covers''
* TeamMom: For the Nereids. This trope is more literal than usual cases becasue it's implied that she IS all of the Nereids' mother.


!! Penn
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Penn-Capture_1262.jpg]]

Penn is a human child adopted by the Nereids. They view him somewhere between a son and a their future sperm donor as the Nereids do not have any males. He seems unconcerned with this plan for better or worse since while he likes the Nereids, he [[BuxomIsBetter likes well endowed women]] and the Nereids are all rather "streamlined." He's also a rather mouthy kid. He goes around dressed as a girl, presumably because Nereids don't know how treat male children.

-----

* CheerfulChild
* ChildhoodMarriagePromise: Asks female Revya to marry him in Juno's ending. To Revya's chagrin, she doesn't seem to have any say in it.
* CreepyChild: In the Demon Path. He's AxCrazy, and doesn't care about his own life, actually finds it cool when Revya doesn't care that Thuris uses him as human shield. Even Gig is creeped out by this.
* DirtyKid: [[BuxomIsBetter He loves big boobs.]] For this reason in Juno's ending, [[spoiler: if Revya is female, he asks her to marry him, much to her chagrin]].
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Thorndyke is his father.]]
* StayWithTheAliens: When he meets his dad, he decides to stay with the Nereids (even as an adult).
* WholesomeCrossdresser: For whatever reason, he's always seen in a dress and pigtails.
** It's because he was raised by the Nereids, who are a SingleGenderRace and therefore have no idea how to raise a male.
* WifeHusbandry: Is the target of a reverse example. He's bound for a very... interesting life.


!! Endorph
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KosukeToriumi (JP), Creator/TroyBaker (EN)
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/soulnomad-endorph_5717.jpg]]

Endorph is a mysterious leader of a band of thieves, though he is quite honorable and operates on a Robin Hood style of business. At the start, he's still traveling with Shauna and her band, though their conflicting interests cause them to part ways. He's a sort of MemeticBadass in universe for those of know of him. His goals are unclear, but seem to match Revya's. Unfortunately, he's not really on Revya's side either and more likely to drag her into battles she just happened to stumble across.

-----

* BerserkButton: For the love of God, don't call Euphoria a doll!
* GuestStarPartyMember: [[spoiler:You briefly gain him after Levin's {{reveal}}]], but then quickly lose him after his HeroicSacrifice. However, if your RelationshipValues are high with Endorph, then you regain him when you enter Drazil.]]
* GunsAkimbo: He uses two pistols in Soul Nomad.
* TheGunslinger
* InterspeciesRomance: With Euphoria (a Sepp).
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:"I've already died once before. Even the black reaper is sick of me."]]
* NotSoDifferent: To Levin and Shauna and their love for both their sisters.
* OlderAndWiser[=/=]TookALevelInKindness: It's hard to imagine that this guy, who is now JustLikeRobinHood, a good mentor to the weak willed, and a [[BigDamnHeroes Big Damn Hero]] was once a JerkAss SocialDarwinist. [[spoiler:See Videogame/PhantomBrave]].
* PlayingWithFire: His Front Row, Special Attack, and Team-Up Attack with Revya.
* SixthRanger
* SuicideAttack: Psycho Burgundy from his own game, [[spoiler: which he uses to completely destroy Raksha]], though he [[spoiler: apparently manages to survive, ''again''.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Antagonists]]

!! Feinne

The first of the titular World Eaters encountered. Gig says she's his favorite World Eater, as she is the most powerful and obedient of the three. She has little will or malice of her own and has spent the centuries since Gig's defeat quietly sitting outside a major city and only defending herself when attacked. That said, when you attack her, you have basically no chance of winning due to her immense power.

-----

* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:After Resillience died, her soul was stolen by Drazil and turned into Gig's most faithful and powerful World Eater. Unlike Thuris and Raksha, she's not actually evil: She's just trapped in a body that acts regardless of her will.]]
* CameBackWrong: [[spoiler:She used to be one of the overseer gods like Vigilance and Virtuous, but committed suicide to become a human to understand the human perspective better. Unfortunately, Drazil stole her soul and turned her into a World Eater.]]
* CurbStompBattle: Battles against her are always this in the Normal Path, either in your favor or hers. The Demon Path often has you and her on even footing.
* HopelessBossFight: Feinne is too powerful to defeat without tapping into Gig's power, and Gig's power comes with a heavy cost. [[spoiler:If you ''do'' defeat her when you're not supposed to, you end up fighting Asagi.]]
* ICannotSelfTerminate: [[spoiler:At the end of the game, she and Thuris have their souls dragged back to Drazil and reconstituted. Thuris is quickly devoured, but Feinne begs for Gig to kill her. Unlike the first time, he grants her wish.]]
* WaveMotionGun: Her normal form of offense.

!! Thuris
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Thuris-Capture_3970.jpg]]

Thuris is the second World Eater encountered. He is the weakest but most cunning of the three and operates his own cult that is a constant thorn in the side of the protagonists throughout the game.

-----

* BigBadWannabe
* TheChessmaster: Subverted; he's ''supposed'' to be one, but the problem for him is Soul Nomad is a GambitPileup from the word go, and he's got at least four other chessmasters he's competing against.
* FateWorseThanDeath: He's resurrected by the Drazillian Masters of Life and Death just to be consumed by them near the end of the game, though this could be considered KickTheSonOfABitch instead. They try to do the same to Feinne, but Revya and Gig intervene and MercyKill her.
* ForTheEvulz: His reason for the creating the Scarlet Iago? He felt like it.
* AGodAmI: Since normal people can't see him, he's managed to create a massive cult known as the Thurists.
* GuideDangIt: Thuris is the first World Eater type enemy you get into a real battle with, and can be a tricky foe until you figure out the easiest way to take them down. [[spoiler:The trick is, they can't move, so stay out of his range until everything else on the field is dead and then muster your forces and power yourself up outside his range, then move in for the kill. Unlike other enemies, World Eater types cannot counter attack, so you can beat on him with impunity during your turns.]]
* HearingVoices: Normal people can't see him, so he's managed to convince hundreds that he's a god with a disembodied voice.
* InformedAbility: The World Eater who is supposed to be the best schemer of the three winds up OutGambitted by every other chessmaster in the story.
* JackOfAllStats: Compared to Fienne and Raksha, he balances between physical and magic based stats.
* LargeHam
* LaughingMad: In the Normal Path. So much that it ''even'' rivals the SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's and actually frightens Gig. Story-wise, it's averted in the Demon Route. In fact, it's the trademark of every member of his cult.
* OutGambitted: See above.
* {{Plaguemaster}}: The creator of Scarlet Iago, the deadly disease ravaging the land.
* SmugSnake
* TakingYouWithMe: When he's utterly beaten, Thuris self-destructs to spread a cloud of pure Scarlet Iago upon the party to try to kill them too.
* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: He actually ''is'' a certifiable threat the first time you see him, but the second encounter is when he gets seriously OutGambitted, and since you've already worked out how to beat him the first time, the rematch is much simpler.

!! Raksha
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Raksha-Capture_3102.jpg]]

Raksha is the third and final of Gig's World Eaters. He has been inactive for years and is sealed by the family of Dio inside a cursed forest. He is a mysterious figure before being confronted, though Gig claims he's more TheBrute than anything and thinks little of him.

-----

* BigBadFriend: While not ''quite'' the BigBad, [[spoiler: Raksha is one of the biggest chess masters in the entire game, and spends most of it as your good buddy Levin.]]
* TheBrute: The strongest physically of the World Eaters, but not big on brain power. [[spoiler:Well, not quite; he's become one of Soul Nomad's many chessmasters since Gig was sealed.]]
* CharacterDevelopment: [[spoiler: From Levin's perpective anyway: By the time of his revival, Levin appears to have lost the hot blooded and boisterous persona both he and Raksha had and is instead quiet, pensive and philosophical. This is undoubtedly because he's just as confused as everyone else about why he was brought back to life and has started questioning his existence. Thankfully, it seems to have made him into a genuinely good person.]]
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler: He spends most of the game disguised as Levin to in a plan to kill anybody he considers a threat to his EvilPlan (the full details of which aren't stated), consisting of Thuris, Fienne, Layna, and Gig. Succeeds in his plan to kill Layna by having Dio trap everyone in a seal so she would come to release them so he could get the jump on her after killing the other two World Eaters.]]
* ClimaxBoss: Even knowing how to fight World Eaters from fighting Thuris twice, and with the members of the Hidden Village on your side, Raksha is still no slouch; defeating him really comes down to taking him down before he can smash all your characters into paste.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy
* DarkReprise: His battle theme is a remix of [[spoiler:Levin]]'s theme.
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler: of Levin's body. He bought two slaves ten years ago and crushed their souls. Euphoria became a puppet while Levin's original soul was simply booted out and replaced with Raksha's.]]
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Much of the cast thinks that plot is over since they didn't recall that World Eaters aren't the root of the problem.
* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler:He faked Euphoria's death and took her away to keep her from Endorph. Later, he claims he killed her himself. If you have enough relationship points with him Euphoria refuses to stay where he put her and gets between the Endorph/Raksha confrontation.]]
* AGodAmI: [[spoiler: The ultimate goal of his EvilPlan]]
* GoodFeelsGood: In the Demon Path.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[spoiler: Seems to have graduated to this in his epilogue, where he is clearly shown to deeply regret his actions and worry about his former friends but continously attempts to get Revya to leave him alone by threatening to eat them.]]
* LargeHam: [[spoiler: In his real body, rivaling Gig in this respect.]]
* TheMole: [[spoiler: To Revya's group, as Levin.]]
* KillItWithFire: His attacks consist of breathing fire and growing pair of WolverineClaws made of fire attacking with them.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler: As Levin.]]
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: He talks normally, but Gig noted that he's learned 'many big angry words'. Raksha said that he's feeling verbose.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler: In the Normal Path, nobody saw him or his plan coming.]]
* TookALevelInDumbass: [[spoiler:Reversed. If Gig's reactions are anything to imply, Raksha's taken a level in ''genius'' instead.]]
* WolverineClaws: Made of [[PlayingWithFire fire]].

!! Kanan
[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/soulcradle44Kanan_6017.jpg]]

Kanan is the leader of the Thurists, the cult that worships Thuris as a god. He looks like a woman after altering his appearance. Contrasting his waifish appearance is his intense insanity and sadism.

-----

* {{Cult}}: He leads the Thurists, which is essentially a doomsday cult.
* TheDragon: To Thuris. [[spoiler:To Revya in The Demon Path. Notably one of the few characters who stick around even up to the final battle, and ''doesn't'' become even more broken and crazy as a result. Not that he wasn't ''already'' crazy -- but he's almost normal compared to some of the others.]]
** DevourTheDragon: [[spoiler:Thuris eventually sacrifices him and the Thurists to power himself up during his boss battle.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Despite having a feminine voice and appearance, Kanan is acut
* EvilLaugh: Seems to be a requirement for the Thurists.
** NoblewomansLaugh
* EvilRedhead
* EvilSorcerer: As a Dracon hero unit, he's a powerful magic user.
* EvilerThanThou: [[spoiler:In the Demon Path, decides that Revya is a greater god since he/she's more evil than Thuris]]
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: If his reactions to Thorndyke are any indication, he seems to have a thing for [[spoiler:insane]] men.
* PsychoSupporter: To both Thuris and [[spoiler:Revya.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler:Abandons Thuris for Revya in the Demon Path when he realizes Revya's going to crush Thuris.]]
* VillainousCrossdresser: To the horror of Vitali.

!! Thorndyke
!!!Voiced by: Creator/DaveWittenberg (EN)
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Thorndyke-Capture_3654.jpg]]

Thorndyke is the honorable commander of the Knights of Raide. He lost his son years ago, but received his current position not long after. Though considered strangely young for the position, he has easily proved his worth. He is very noble and honorable to the point where the reclusive Nereids actually do value his word. He is attempting to keep the group from attacking Feinne as she is inactive and only causes problems when confronted.

-----

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Grand Cordon of Raide, everyone.
* BadAssBoast: "I... I don't understand you. But I cannot let such anarchists live! Your death has arrived!"
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Dies rather abruptly in the Normal Path.
* FallenHero: [[spoiler:In the Demon Path]]
* HeroAntagonist: Embodies this trope. Even the Nereids he opposes are aware that he is a noble, just man.
* LaughingMad: [[spoiler:In the Demon Path, does this after Kanan convinces him that he's always been a BloodKnight at nature and that his heroic past was only an excuse for him to kill.]]
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:To Penn. Penn decides to stay because he's already made his choice to grow up and live with the Nereids. Still, he's proud of the fact that his father is a renowned hero.]]
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:In the Demon Path.]]

!! Lobo
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Lobo-Capture_5908.jpg]]

Male Sepp who is the leader of the Yesterwind, a BlackMarket organization that kidnaps and smuggles children.

-----

* DirtyCoward: After Endorph manages to subdue him, he begs Christophe (who he was just holding at knife-point moments ago) to spare him.
* DontYouDarePityMe: When Christophe offered him the chance to come with him and stop being a criminal, Lobo tells him that he doesn't need his pity and proceeds to hold him hostage.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Despite being the leader of secret organization that specializes in kidnapping and selling children, he is disgusted by Hawthorne's action to his "daughters." [[spoiler: He also leaves Revya due to his/her psychotic nature.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Christophe
* EvilFormerFriend: Evidently, he and Christophe used to be friends.
* [[GoodSmokingEvilSmoking Evil Smoking]]: Smokes a cigarette.
* ForgottenChildhoodFriend: To Christophe
* FreudianExcuse: His past with Christophe has left him with serious trust issues. [[spoiler:In the Demon Path, he either refuses to believe that Revya trusts him or is actively hurt that she doesn't, depending on the dialogue.]]
* GutturalGrowler
* KarmaHoudini: Unlike his KarmicDeath in the Normal Path, Demon Path Lobo gets to betray Revya and walk away scott-free in the good ending.
* NonActionBigBad: Being that he's a rank coward, he never risks his life as long as he's got mooks.
* OnlySaneMan: [[spoiler:In the Demon Path, where he eventually betrays and ditches Revya.]]
* ShootTheDog: Is summarily executed by Cuthbert in order to keep his more noble brother's (Christophe) hands clean.

!!Cuthbert
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Cuthbert-Capture_3655.jpg]]

Cuthbert is Christophe's younger brother. He doesn't appear often, so his goals are quite mysterious but implied to be rather shady.

-----
* CombatMedic
* TheDragon: For Lobo.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: More of working with less honorable people, Cuthburt really cares about his big brother. [[spoiler: The Demon Path reveals that Cuthburt joined Yesterwind because Christophe was ill and he needed the money to fund for a cure to save him.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Vitali.
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler:Kills Lobo to ensure Christophe's hands stay clean.]]
* LiquidAssets: His tech Glutton Gain drains the entire opposing party of HP and bestows it upon Cuthbert's party.
* NobleTopEnforcer: For Lobo. [[spoiler:He even ends up killing his boss himself]].
* OnlySaneMan: Shares this with Shauna and Lobo in the Demon Path, [[spoiler:but then Shauna too goes insane and Lobo abandons Revya.]]
* OutDamnedSpot: In his final moments, he talks about how his hands are stained by evil that he cannot remove no matter how much he scrubs.
* StartOfDarkness: He began working for Lobo to pay off medicine for Christophe.
* TheStrategist: For Shauna during your second encounter with her.

!! Shauna
!!!Voiced by: KaoriMizuhashi (JP), Creator/KarenStrassman (EN)
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shauna-Capture_7148.jpg]]

Shauna is a gypsy and bandit who despises the poor and actually prefers to rob them of what little they have rather than target individuals with items worth stealing. She is a recurring boss fight due to her actions making the world worse for everyone and her own grudges against Revya's party.

-----

* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler:Just when she lightens up and tells Tricia that she's her sister and wants to stay with her, she dies of a fatal disease.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: She constantly gets in your way out of what seems to be primarily spite. Not only that, but her speciality is robbing from the poor despite them not having anything worth taking.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: [[spoiler:Kills Hawthorne]] in both paths. [[spoiler: She's way too late]] in the Demon Path though.
* MoralityChain: In the Demon Path, [[spoiler: after Trish kills herself, after which she gives up on everything and devolves into yet another AxCrazy murderer.]]
* MoralityPet: [[spoiler: Trish is this for her]] in the Demon Path, or at least, gives her emotion. [[spoiler: But after that fifty-five day skip...]]
* MsFanservice
* NotSoDifferent: To [[PhantomBrave Endorph]], albeit much more nihilistic.
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler:Of her own choice, as a child, no less. Tells her father to take baby Trish while she goes with a servant and escape the mob outside of their home.]]
* PetTheDog:
* TheRival[=/=]TheStarscream: To Endorph.

[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Dio-Capture_4005.jpg]]

The true Dio of the Evil Eye and the younger brother of "Dio", whose real name is Odie. He is the scion of the prestigious Dio line, who began their service under Median the Conqueror centuries ago and now serve as advisors for the queen of Orviska. Under his guidance the empire has grown increasingly aggressive and he appears to despise Revya's group.
-----

* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Layna is his (and his family's) someone better, and he hates her for it. Also, he's this to Odie.
* BoomStick
* ClimaxBoss: The last boss fought before crossing over to the other world. The battle in which you directly fight him and one before it are two of the longest and most tactically involving in the game, forcing you to carefully work your way around cramped terrain and bring down hordes of enemy troops. Dio himself is one of the very few enemies in the normal path to travel with a full team of nine units. And just to drive the point home, [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Rock n Rock's]] plays during the battle.
* TheDragon: To Gestahl.
* EvilChancellor: Subverted. He's totally loyal to the queen (and in the Demon Path actively risks his life to save her), but still an asshole.
* EvilCounterpart: To Odie.
* EvilSorcerer
* GuestStarPartyMember: Forced to join the party in the Demon Path for a brief amount of time.
* HeelFaceTurn: In the Demon Path, plays a HeroAntagonist role since he's initially to protect Orviska, and rescue the queen after Revya takes over. After Ghestal's death, he makes a full turn towards good and vows to work to better the world after Revya's defeat.
* NotSoDifferent: Is accused of being the same as Raksha in the normal path, to which he replies that Raksha doesn't actually want to rule anything, he just doesn't want anyone to give him orders.
* RedemptionEarnsLife: In the Demon Path Good Ending.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: His response to Odie calling him immoral magic is that laws are for commoners and that those who makes laws are above them.
* ShockAndAwe
* SquishyWizard
* TookALevelInKindness: He's portrayed as a much more heroic character in the demon path. He even acknowledges Odie as a worthy bearer of the Dio lineage.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Median, even in death. So much so that the entire family spent over 200 years trying to revive and keep him alive.
** Also to Diness, making repeated attempts to save her in the Demon Path.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He was a jerk, make no mistake, but he was doing what he thought was best for the world. Killing Layna is just to satiate his pride though.

!!Blazing Gestahl
!!!Voiced by: Creator/PatrickSeitz (EN)
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Gestahl-Capture_8958.jpg]]

Gestahl is an undead swordsman with unmatched power and a known companion and protector of the Dio line. He is covered in bandages and spends much of his time in stasis.

-----

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: As Median the Conqueror, folks.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* ''{{BADASS}}'': This guy took Gig on and KILLED him. Likewise, the boss fight with him is HeadsIWinTailsYouLose
** BadassNormal: As far the setting is concerned, he's an ordinary human with no magic any tricks boosting his power.
* BonusBoss: As Median the Conqueror, and is the strongest enemy in the game. You gain access to him after you beat him
* CameBackWrong: As Gesthal, he has to contantly use Crimson Tears and other peoples' lives to sustain his current state.
* ClimaxBoss: Since the real final boss is an AnticlimaxBoss to a certain extent, Gestahl is the last truly difficult foe in the Normal path.
* DarkIsEdgy: His powers are essentially Revya's Demon powers turned UpToEleven.
* [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Did You Just Punch Gig]]: As Median. Granted Gig was still Vigilance at the time, but the guy killed the ''freakin' GrimReaper!'' And if you lose to [[BonusBoss him]], Virtuous falls too, though doesn't exactly end well for him.
** BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: Killing Gig left the souls on Haephness vulnerable to Drazil's influence, and dies later at Virtuous' hands.
* TheDragon: For Dio.
** But not really. Dio is his [[TheDragon Dragon]].
* GuestStarPartyMember: Joins you for a few battles in the Demon Path, where he is wonderfully just as much a GameBreaker as he was in the Normal path.
* IaijutsuPractitioner: With the Onyx Blade as Median.
* ICannotSelfTerminate: He has to force Revya to defeat him in a clean fight; if he simply allowed her to kill him, she could not gain his full powers.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Occasionally loses all memory.
* LightningBruiser: He's pretty much a GameBreaker.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The Blazing Swordsman anyone?
** Forget Blazing Swordsman. Try his real name, Median the '''Conqueror'''.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: All the problems in Haephnes were caused by him killing Vigilance out of revenge for the death of his son and his wish to live forever and govern the united Prodesto. (To be fair, he was tricked by Drazil into doing so). Also, there's an optional moment where if you lose to him in the BonusBoss battle, he tries to kill Virtuous as well, which causes the end of the world.
* TheProblemWithFightingDeath: He was under the impression that killing the [[GrimReaper Master of Death]] will allow him to live forever and thus lead Prodesto to an age of prosperity and peace. [[FromBadToWorse By the way, he's wrong]].
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Sacrifices himself to give Revya her EleventhHourSuperpower.
* SecretAIMoves: Averted; He's just as good as a GuestStarPartyMember as he was as a boss.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: He wants to obtain his old powers in order to save Haephnes. Before that, as Median, he killed the Master of Death in order to live forever and govern Prodesto, which had been a CrapsackWorld prior to his reign. [[TheProblemWithFightingDeath Unfortunately,]] [[FromBadToWorse things didn't turn out so well...]]

!! Layna
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Layna-Capture_9481.jpg]]

Layna is the true daughter of Median the Conqueror. After Virtuous killed Median for ruining the cycle of reincarnation by slaying Vigilance, Layna tracked her down and was about to kill her before having a change of heart and becoming her host. Together, they are the ones who truly defeated Gig.

-----

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: A much gentler example; the Drazilians don't fully trust her due to her looking different from them, but they try to help her rather than insult her.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: "Median's daughter, Layna, had come into her own and become a true leader." In-game, it's said she's beaten the legendary dragon Sluperam [[spoiler: and almost killed Virtuous, the woman who killed her father.]]
* BadAss
* BoobsOfSteel
* GenkiGirl
* JackOfAllStats: Much like Revya.
* LadyOfWar
* [[spoiler:LukeIAmYourFather: She's actually the hero's little sister from their previous life.]]
* OneSteveLimit: Averted.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Probably the oldest character that's still can be consider "human."
* ReverseMole: Has been working with Virtuous for the past two hundred years infiltrating Drazil's world. The player finds this out quickly after she joins.
* RoyalRapier: Her WeaponOfChoice. She also fits the 'royal' part of the Trope, considering she's the daughter of Median the Conqueror.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair
* [[spoiler:YouKilledMyFather: In the backstory, she mortally wounded Virtuous in revenge for her father's death. However, the dying Virtuous convinced her to merge with her (not unlike Revya and Gig) at the last moment.]]

!!Drazil
!!!Voiced by: Creator/JamiesonPrice (EN)
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Drazil-Capture_6024.jpg]]

Drazil is the second of the overseer gods and the lord of the alternate world that bears his name. He runs a very structured, peaceful and quiet world that lacks much in the way of identity.

-----

* AchillesHeel: His FusionDance with Gamma and Joule is, like Raksha and Fienne, way too strong to fight outside of NewGamePlus, but killing his squads of minions around the map lowers his level enough that he's actually weaker than Gestahl.
* AllYourPowersCombined: Is ''all about this.'' Not only does he combine with his Masters of Life and Death to form the final boss, but he draws power from his Drazillian minions as well.
* AmazingTechnicolorBattlefield
* BigBad: Of the Normal Path.
* TheChessmaster: The top one in the storyline, rivaled only by Virtuous.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Shown in the Demon Path bad ending, he in fact does, though they border into Godzilla Threshold. The time he shows any standards are when [[EvilVersusOblivion there's the possibility of something destroying both his world and Haephnes's]]. That said, he admits to it being his fault.
* TheEvilsOfFreeWill: He, as well as his Masters of Life and Death, were disgusted with how Haephnes' world turned out. Firm believers that free will leads only to suffering and that everyone would be better off without it, this was the reason for his WorldOfSilence.
* HeelFaceTurn: In the Demon Path bad ending.
* JerkassGods: He's pretty much a walking example of GodIsEvil on his world.
* KarmaHoudini: In the Demon Path good ending, due to the game ending with Revya's defeat, he never suffers an punishment for his actions. Also in both Median Endings.
* KnightTemplar: Damn brutal one. As long as his plans work, he doesn't care how much people suffer for his atrocities in the process, and he doesn't object to eating souls either.
* LackOfEmpathy: He doesn't care what people suffer during Gig and the World Eaters' rampage since he feels they're happier living in his world anyways.
* LargeHam: He ''is'' voiced by Creator/JamiesonPrice in the Dub.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Revya's actions in the Demon Path leave Drazil struck with guilt and fully aware he's entirely at fault for what she's done.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Justified, unless somebody comes to challenge him on his world, not matter what happens on Haephness, as long his Masters of Life and Death can influence the flow of souls, he wins no matter what.
* SmugSnake
* TheUnfettered: Beyond the deaths he caused on Haephness, there's also what he did to Resilience.
* WellIntentionedExtremist
* WorldOfSilence: His world, where the people all look the same and have no sense of individuality. Dialogue with some of the random people reveals that even how long they live, which is implied to be short, is subject to Drazil's control.
* YourSoulIsMine: Can eat souls of anybody he has Dominion over to gain power. Does this to bunch of random followers to create two clones of himself.

!!Gama and Joules

Drazil's Masters of Life and Death, contrasting Virtuous and Vigilance respectively. They are arrogant, condescending, brutal and absolutely loyal to Drazil.

----

* CoDragons: To Drazil
* CurbStompBattle: To Gestahl when he tries fighting them.
* EvilBrit: Both of them.
* EvilIsPetty: Gig complains that Drazil's world prevents anyone from every knowing "the divine beauty of the hotpod." The two of them apparently hate hotpods so much they actually respond that another reason their would is better is that it doesn't have those.
* FauxAffablyEvil: They try to come as polite, and likely see themselves as such, but underneath that they're even more condescending than Gig.
* MrExposition: Regarding Drazil's plan.
* SatelliteCharacter: The one scene they have presents them as this to each other, without them even having any major distinguishing personality traits.
* SmugSnake
* TheUnfettered
* TheUnfought: Outside of the FusionDance with Drazil.
* YourSoulIsMine: Like Drazil, they can eat the souls of anybody they have Dominion over. They do this to Thuris, and try to to Fienne, but Gig and Revya MercyKill her before they get the chance.
