::'''Senel Coolidge'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Senel185_6582.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/KenichiSuzumura (JP), Scott Holst (EN)

A former Alliance Marine and adopted brother to Shirley. [[KnightTemplarBigBrother He is hell-bent on protecting her from anything and everything]]. At first he is only concerned with matters that directly affect either himself or Shirley, but slowly begins to open up as he becomes friends with the inhabitants of the ''Legacy''. He uses [[HeroesFightBarehanded his fists]] in battle, the first TalesSeries main character to not [[HeroesPreferSwords use swords]], and uses some traditional TalesSeries [[TheHero hero artes]] mixed with his own.

----

* [[spoiler:TheAtoner]]
* {{Badass}}
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler: He was originally a soldier from Crusand sent to plan an attack on the Ferines settlement so Shirley could be captured and used as a weapon. He eventually assimilated into the Ferines village, to the point where he and Stella were talking about getting married. Then bad things happened.]]
** GoingNative
* BerserkButton: Anything having to do with Stella.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Deconstructed, then Re-constructed, through the main story. Played Straight in the Character Quests where he's the "Responsible Elder Sibling" of the group, and usually the one to take charge whenever Will's not around.
* BystanderSyndrome: Early-on, if it doesn't involve himself or Shirley, he doesn't care. He gets heavily called out on this, and eventually gets better.
* CharacterDevelopment: His development is the most noticeable one. He goes from a cold and hot-blooded young boy who only thought of Stella, Shirley and himself to a level-headed young man who thinks of everyone and smiles more often.
* ChasteHero: Shirley and Chloe both have crushes on him, though [[spoiler: the only girl he was ever romantically interested in was Stella, who is dead.]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Stealthily downplayed]] at the beginning of Will's quest, which contains an oblique reference that maybe he's not so chaste after all.
* ChewingTheScenery: "STELLA, NOOOOOOOOOO!"
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler:He's the only one who doesn't lapse into a HeroicBSOD after Maurits's BreakingSpeech.]]
* [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice Queen]]: Starts the game as a rather prickly individual, and it becomes apparent that Senel has trust issues. He grows out of this by the end of the main story.
* FacialMarkings: In ''Radiant Mythology'', [[VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth Annie]] starts talking about his "scar" and how it must've hurt. Senel admits that it's a tattoo and he just got it because he thought it'd look cool. [[http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/4936/marinetrooper.jpg It's the symbol of the marine troopers.]]
* GoodOldFisticuffs
* HeavySleeper: A running gag in the Character Quests features each character trying to wake him up. Will, at one point, resorts to ''kicking him in the head'' (he was asleep on the floor) and that still didn't wake him up.
** Later on, he sleeps through an earthquake that knocks him off his bed and onto the floor... of the ''Main'' floor; his bed was in the ''Loft''.
** AnOddPlaceToSleep: He starts the Character Quests bunking in Will's house where his preferred sleeping spot was on the floor behind the sofa.
* HeroesFightBarehanded: As noted above, he is the first main character not to use a sword in the ''TalesSeries''.
* HeroicBSOD: Gets one of these after [[spoiler:the Calm Nerifes refused to grant him sacred eres, when it gave sacred eres to everyone else. He had to do some soul searching to realize just [[TheAtoner what he'd done]] to Shirley before he finally got it.]]
** This is inverted later, when [[spoiler:Maurits is giving a BreakingSpeech to the rest of the party during the final battle. Senel is the only one who does ''not'' go into this.]]
* HotBlooded
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He starts out a JerkAss but he genuinely does care about Shirley's well-being. Eventually, he loses the "Jerk" part.
* IsThatCuteKidYours: At the start of Will's quest, when he, Shirley, and Harriet are trying to get everyone together to find the abandoned baby's parents. When he first sees Shirley with the baby, though, his reaction is more along the lines of [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Is That Cute Kid]] ''[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Ours?]]''.
* MistakenForCheating: Very briefly in the Character Quests, during the scene where Grune tries to wake him up, fails, and decides to take a nap in his bed instead (Senel is on the floor). Shirley is ''not pleased'' for all of half a minute until the situation clarifies itself.
* NotBloodSiblings: He and Shirley claim to be brother and sister, but they're not actually related.
* ObliviousToLove: Except STELLLLLA'S!
* PandaingToTheAudience: If you buy the mascot costume set for a NewGamePlus, Senel will fight in a panda suit.
* PlayingWithFire: His only elemental artes are Fire-based.
* PowerFist: [[spoiler:Interestingly, it is very similar to that of his [[EvilMentor mentor]], Vaclav.]]
* ShoutOut: If you thought [[Anime/FinalFantasyUnlimited Makenshi]] when you saw him, you might not be alone.
* UnreliableNarrator: He basically views Stella as a PuritySue, overlooking a good deal of her negative traits. To be fair, [[spoiler:he was madly in love with her.]]
* [[SayMyName Say Her Name]]: '''STELLLLLLLAAAA'''
* WhatTheHellHero; Chloe essentially yells this at him, coupled slightly with GetAholdOfYourselfMan after he [[spoiler:rejects Shirley just because Senel wants to stay loyal to Stella, even though she's dead.]] He got better.

::'''Shirley Fennes'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shirley185_8249.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/RyoHirohashi (JP), Creator/CarrieSavage (EN)

An innocent young girl who travels alongside Senel, her adopted brother. She suffers from a rare condition that leaves her severely weakened if she becomes submerged in sea water. Though she harbors romantic feelings for Senel, she does not say anything because he is in love with her sister, Stella Telmes.

[[spoiler:She is actually a Ferines, a {{Precursor}} race of highly-advanced, water-dwelling humanoids. Not only that, she is a candidate to become the Merines, the [[TheChosenOne Chosen One]] of the Ferines race who has the ability to control the ''Legacy'' and [[{{Technopath}} all of its Ferines-built technology at will]]. However, the true purpose of the Merines is to activate the Wings of Light, a [[WeaponOfMassDestruction cataclysmic superweapon]] aboard the ''Legacy'' that would flood the planet and allow the Ferines to prosper once more]].

----

* TheAntiChrist ''and'' The AntiAntiChrist: It's complicated. [[spoiler: She is the savior of the Ferines, who will flood the world and eradicate the humans. She didn't want to do this pre-series but a significant amount of tragedy convinced her otherwise, temporarily.]]
* ApocalypseMaiden: [[spoiler: The Merines' duty is to activate the Wings of Light, a cataclysmic superweapon that will flood the planet and kill all the humans so that the Ferines can prosper again.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Her reaction to Norma trying to sleep over at Senel's place is to [[DissonantSerenity smile sweetly]] and start charging her Eres.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: By the [[spoiler: spirit of the entire ''ocean''.]]
** MoreThanMindControl: She still posseses free will, which almost leads her to breaking free, [[spoiler: but Maurits [[ManipulativeBastard puts a stop to that and persuades her into giving in completely.]]]]
* BreakTheCutie: Stupid Vaclav... [[spoiler:Although it's Maurits and the Gadoria Knight Captain who push her over the edge.]]
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: When she finally joins and becomes playable, her spells that are shared with everyone else have a pink variant to their animations. [[spoiler: Her Orerines clothing, that she wears for most of the main quest and the entirety of the character quests, is mostly white. Her Merines dress, on the other hand, is black and dark blue.]]
* CrucifiedHeroShot: Briefly, when Maurits attacks the party after [[spoiler:failing to completely absorb Nerifes' power]].
* CrystalDragonJesus
* DamselInDistress: Until she unlocks her Merines powers she spends the vast majority of the time being kidnapped.
* DamselOutOfDistress:
** On one occasion in the main story, she broke her bounds, punched out a soldier and then escaped on her own. The only reason she was recaptured is because she used herself as bait to help another oreines escaped.
** In Jay's Quest, where Jay has to kidnap her, and she ends up [[GetAholdOfYourselfMan verbally bitch-slapping him to his senses.]]
* DespairEventHorizon - When [[spoiler: Fenimore dies.]] And then [[spoiler: ''again'' when Maurits tricks her into believing Senel never cared for her.]]
* [[spoiler: EvilCostumeSwitch]]
* [[spoiler: EvilSoundsDeep: After she completes the Rite of Accession and awakens as the Merines, her voice is noticeably deeper and no longer squeaky.]]
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: To [[spoiler:Chloe and then Jay]] in the character quests.
* {{Honorifics}} - Once the Character Quests roll around, Shirley is the only member of the main party who still uses them. At the end of Chloe's quest, it's Chloe herself who convinces Shirley not to be so formal with everyone else (though she's still embarrassed when Shirley drops the suffixes completely). Norma has a similar scene with her near the end of Moses' quest.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy - Shirley loves Senel, but Senel loves her older sister Stella... Shirley puts up with it for a long time because she wants Senel to be happy, but eventually [[BrainwashedAndCrazy she]] [[{{Yandere}} loses it...]]
** Later in the character quests, [[spoiler:she's on the verge of stepping aside ''again''--for Chloe this time--despite being engaged to Senel. At least before she and Chloe air out their feelings and Chloe admits that she's never going to get anywhere with him and knows it.]]
** There's another scene in the character quests where this happens and is PlayedForLaughs - Shirley mistakenly believes Senel has slept with Grune and, while sad, resigns herself to this fact and tries not to burden Senel with her feelings on it. When it becomes clear that this whole thing is a misunderstanding, Shirley has a FreakOut in both frusturation and relief.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Though she specializes in magic, her equippable weapon is a pen. However, but the weapons she ''attacks'' with is throwing butterfly-shaped Teriques.
* IsThatCuteKidYours: In Will's quest; see Senel's profile for details.
* TheLoad : During the first act of the game because of her weak constitution and vulnerability to sea water [[spoiler: both of which are due to a curse from Nerifes because she deliberately failed her ascension.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Senel and Stella tried to keep [[spoiler:Senel's past as a child soldier]] from her. When she learns the truth, she's ''much'' more upset about not being trusted and included than she is about what she's being told.
* LoveMartyr
* MoreHeroThanThou: During the whole Waterways incident. Shirley was rescuing herself quite capably in all the confusion up until Fenimore and Walter caught the DistressBall; Shirley, not seeing herself as more important than them, lets herself get captured again in order to distract Vaclav from the two of them.
* NotBloodSiblings: Senel isn't really her brother.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: [[spoiler: After she awakens her Merines powers, she's capable of wiping out the planet in a gigantic flood if she wants to. At the cost of her life, but still. She can also cause lots of other lesser chaos and destruction with no risk to herself. ''Damn.'']]
* PluckyGirl
* ThePollyanna
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to her sister.
* RomanticRunnerUp: [[spoiler:She lost to Stella initially but [[AnchoredShip won in the end]].]]
* SilkHidingSteel: Especially in the Character Quests.
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler: Shirley steps in front of a Ferines woman who was about to be stabbed by the captain of the Gadorian Knights. Fenimore then steps in front of Shirley, TakingTheBullet for the one who was going to [[TakingTheBullet Take The Bullet]]]].
* WingedHumanoid: Ferines can produce a "teriques," that typically manifests as a pair of wings, either back-mounted or free and butterfly sized. After Shirely unlocks her Merines powers, her teriques becomes permanently active, as back-mounted wings.
* [[spoiler:WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds]]
* {{Yandere}}: After [[BreakTheCutie all the breaking]], she caves in and becomes one toward Senel. To be specific, [[spoiler: her Merines powers are activated because of Fenimore's death, but she doesn't give in to Nerifes completely due to her love for Senel (despite his earlier rejection of her) until she gets hit in the face with the degree to which Senel and Stella kept her in the dark, reminding her of how badly Senel has always rejected her, so she gives into Nerfies' control out of anger toward Senel, feeling that he never loved her in any fashion and thus she has nothing to live for.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Her in-game mugshot does ''not'' look fifteen. Her battle model, now that's a different story.

::'''Will Raynard'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Will185_2166.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/SusumuChiba (JP), Creator/CamClarke (EN)

The sheriff of Werites Beacon, although he would rather be a natural historian. He is very knowledgeable about the monsters inhabiting the Legacy, and has a tendency to give lectures on monsters whether people want to hear it or not. Although he is huge and wields a gigantic hammer, he is a [[SquishyWizard Crystal Eren]]. He has a daughter named Harriet.
----

* AdventurerArchaeologist
* TheAtoner
* CoolOldGuy - Well, Norma thinks he's old.
* DropTheHammer
* DullSurprise- He can be guilty of this sometimes.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: He's a mage type character and very weak physically, despite what his apprentice would imply. He even uses a ''hammer''.
** Lampshaded in a skit - where someone mentions he could switch to Iron Eres.
* OlderThanTheyLook- He's actually 28.
* SugarAndIcePersonality
* TeamDad
* WiseBeyondTheirYears

-----

::'''Chloe Valens'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Chloe185_3991.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: MasumiAsano (JP), Heather Halley (EN)

A knight from Gadoria who joins the party. She came to the Legacy to find a swordsman with with a snake tattoo on his arm [[spoiler: in order to kill him to avenge the death of her parents and regain the honor of the Valens family name]]. She fights using a sword, and plays a little more like the classic TalesSeries [[TheHero Hero]], even using many of their artes combined with some of her own.
----

* ActionGirl: One of the most {{Badass}} girls in the whole ''{{Tales Series}}''.
** It's interesting to note that she's the only female swordsman who's built like a traditional Tales hero.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited - She has a crush on Senel, which isn't returned.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassCape
* CannotSpitItOut: Her romantic feelings for Senel.
* {{Chickification}}: Despite falling in love and getting in touch with her feminine side, she does not become 'weak', either physically or emotionally.
* DullSurprise: Just listen to half of the English VA's lines and try to deny she's guilty of this. Frusturatingly enough, she also varies between this and LargeHam in combat, showing that the voice actress ''is'' capable of sounding HotBlooded like Japanese Chloe, and is likely just badly directed.
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler: For stabbing Senel when he stops her from committing ''murder''.]]
* HotBlooded
* ImportantHaircut: Before she started her quest for revenge.
* ImprobableUseOfAWeapon: A few of her artes involve her using her sword as a pole-vault while she kicks them.
* LadyOfWar
* LawfulStupid: She acts this way at first, but quickly learns better.
* NiceHat
* [[spoiler: RedemptionInTheRain - The end of her character quest.]]
* RescueRomance: Starts falling for Senel after he saves her from drowning.
* RevengeBeforeReason & RoaringRampageOfRevenge - At first.
* SensualSpandex
* ShipSinking - [[spoiler:After her character quest she admits that her relationship with Senel will never be more than friendly but she still has feelings for him.]]
* ShockAndAwe: Her only elemental artes are Lightning-based. Oddly enough, she can add ''[[AnIcePerson freezing]]'' effects to them.
* ShoutOut: [[Anime/FinalFantasyUnlimited Is that you, Lisa?]] Or no wait... [[Anime/SamuraiChamploo Fuu?]]
* SuperDrowningSkills: She doesn't die instantly when touching water, but her swimming skills are nonexistent. This would be why [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes she's scared of water.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A.
* WhatTheHellHero: She pulls this on Senel a few times. The other characters return the favor after [[spoiler:she stabs Senel when he tries to stop her from taking revenge in her Character Quest]].

::'''Norma Beatty'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Norma185_6834.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: KaoriMizuhashi (JP), Amy Gross (EN)

An eccentric archaeologist/treasure hunter who came to the Legacy to find the a mythical stone called Everlight that can supposedly grant any wish. She uses [[SquishyWizard Crystal Eres]], and knows more than anybody else about various locations around the Legacy. She wields a [[ImprobableWeaponUser straw, and attacks by blowing bubbles out of it]].
----

* ActionGirl: When you can fight enemies off by blowing bubbles at them, you deserve this title.
* ACupAngst: She's not that flat but she does complain about being the least bustiest out of all the female party members.
* AdventurerArchaeologist
* ButtMonkey - Early on, less so once Moses shows up to take the role.
* TheChick - Most of her titles have the word "Chick" in them.
* CleavageWindow
* HairDecorations
* GeniusDitz: She's actually a very skilled archaeologist, and managed to [[spoiler:learn Relares, an ancient and complex language that's usually only known by the Ferines, entirely on her own.]]
* GenkiGirl
* ImprobableWeaponUser: It's not the fact that she uses a straw as a weapon, but she attacks by ''blowing bubbles'' out of it.
* JiveTurkey - Lampshaded. "Yo yo yo, moms, pops, what's shakin? ...No, they'd cry if they read that."
* TheMatchmaker - Norma gives Chloe advice on how to act on her crush on Senel, whether Chloe likes it or not, or even [[{{Troll}} whether the advice is even sound.]]
* TheNicknamer: Though she's the only one who ever uses them.
* ThePollyanna
* ShipperOnDeck: Norma happily ships Senel with both Chloe and Shirley, and [[TheMatchmaker actively gives Chloe relationship advice]].

-----

::'''Moses Sandor'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Moses185_6107.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/KazuyaNakai (JP), Shiloh Strong (EN)

A bandit who kidnaps Shirley early in the game only to join the party later on. He has a large Galf, a wolf-like monster, named Giet that he keeps as a pet. He's very outgoing and friendly, and treats the other party members like siblings. He fights by throwing javelins at his opponents.
----

* ABoyAndHisX - His character quest.
* AccentAdaptation - In Japanese, Moses speaks with a Kyuushu regional dialect. In the English localization, he was given a southern accent. [[{{Woolseyism}} It worked.]]
* [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything The Bandits Who Don't Do Anything]]: The only thing his bandits really do is kidnap Shirley at the start of the game.
* BladeOnAStick
* BottomlessMagazines: Never seems to run out of spears, no matter how many times he throws them. They always appear right back in his hand, too. Norma lampshades this in a skit where she mentions she'll catch the spear next time he throws it.
* ButtMonkey: Lampshaded with one of his titles, "Insult to Injury".
* DarkSkinnedRedhead
* {{Expy}}: The character designer of Legendia is the same one who did the character design who did Samurai Champloo. In a way, he looks a lot like Mugen and could be the red-haired spear-wielding counterpart of him. [[Creator/KazuyaNakai Guess who they're both voiced by?]]
* EyeScream - As a child, [[spoiler:which is how he tamed Giet]].
* FluffyTamer - Giet, a Grand Galf (an extremely powerful monster), is his pet.
* HotBlooded
* IdiotHero
* IllKillYou: After he believes his bandit comrades are dead, he has to be held back by the rest of the party to avoid [[RevengeBeforeReason a hopeless battle]].
* {{Leitmotif}} - "A Cheerful Bandit"
* LikesOlderWomen: He admits he likes Grune, specifically because she is mature and therefore, er, more developed.
* ManlyTears - At the end of his character quest.
* RummageSaleReject: Just what are those pant-like things with the zebra pattern? They look like they're about to fall off all the time!
* VictoryPose - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ydSIzwVgBQ "MOSES HAPPY DANCE! YEE-HAW!"]]
* WalkingShirtlessScene

-----

::'''Jay'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jay185_6781.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/RyokoShiraishi (JP), Creator/SteveStaley (EN)

A reclusive information broker. He is a young ninja who lives with the Oresoren, a tribe of anthropomorphic otters. He's a snide and snarky Iron Eren who fights using knives, combined with kicks and headbutts.
----

* [[spoiler:AbusiveParents]]
* CannotSpitItOut: Chloe notes that Jay has trouble expressing his feelings. Additionally, even though he is told ''several'' times during his Character Quest to let the others know if something is bothering him, he keeps shrugging it off by saying "There really isn't anything", a variation of the typical {{Tales Series}} quote of "It's nothing". Not very believable after what the gamers just saw last dungeon. He is also often seen denying his worry or positive emotions for others, most notably Moses.
--> '''Jay''': He's so easy to read. He can't conceal his irritation at all.
-->'''Senel''': And that's why you can't help worrying about him, right?
-->'''Jay''': I'm not... worried...
* CrossDressingVoices - In Japanese only. In English, he was voiced by the clearly male Steve Staley.
* DeadpanSnarker -
* DudeLooksLikeALady
* EasilyForgiven - In his character quest, though understandably so.
* HatesBeingTouched - All too obviously. Shown in both game scenes and victory poses, especially with Moses.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Come on, he wears ''purple''.
* TheNapoleon - Occasionally, mostly in his post-battle skits with Moses.
* [[spoiler:ParentalAbandonment - ''Twice.'']]
* [[spoiler:ProfessionalKiller]]
* RedBaron - "The Unseen"
* SitcomArchNemesis: With Moses.
* SugarAndIcePersonality
* [[spoiler: WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Jay was ''meant'' to be a "destroyer" through his raising by Solon, but ended up a just-plain Woobie since the Oresorrens' raising of him quelled his murderous instincts.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Also younger than they ''sound'', too - in the English version? He does ''not'' sound sixteen.
** [[spoiler: This is actually a set of FridgeBrilliance - he was raised to be emotionless. While his Japanese version went for the CreepyChild route, the English version went for the "grown-up-fast" type.]]

-----

::'''Grune'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Grune185_9891.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/AyakoKawasumi (JP), ??? (EN)

A ditzy woman with amnesia. She's a Crystal Eren who fights using [[ImprobableWeaponUser urns.]] [[spoiler:She is actually a goddess who incarnated to stop Schwartz. However, the world was not old enough to support her power, so she lost her memories.]] She enjoys... everything, and is always calm and relaxed, even in the middle of a battle.
----

* ActionGirl: You'd never expect it at first glance, but once she joins the party, she blissfully slaughters all in her way. She even TakesALevelInBadass toward the end of the game [[spoiler: after recovering her memory.]]
* AnythingThatMoves: GagBoobs moments whenever she hugs another character, and she doesn't discriminate between genders.
* [[spoiler:AmnesiacGod]]
* BlackMagicianGirl - The only playable crystal eren who learns no healing or support spells.
* [[spoiler:ButNowIMustGo]]
* Catchphrase: "Charge!"
* ChekhovsGunman - If you look, you first see her in a crowd in Werites Beacon within the first couple hours of gameplay.
* CloudCuckoolander - Anything that comes out of her mouth perfectly exemplifies this trope. [[spoiler:Once she regains her memory, however, the cuckoolander personality goes, and stays gone.]]
* CoolBigSis
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass - The biggest CloudCuckoolander in the series by far, would ''you'' expect her to be such a badass fighter with [[GameBreaker Game Breaking]] spells? And then, once she remembers who she is, [[spoiler: the CloudCuckoolander attitude vanishes completely, and stays gone]].
* EarlyBirdCameo - If you look closely during the first and second Bantam Bouncers scenes, she's in the crowd that gathers.
* GagBoobs
* [[spoiler: GameplayAndStorySegregation: The game treats the player to an elaborate cutscene of her gaining more power when she gets her memories back, but this causes no change in her, gameplay-wise. All it really does is change her voice. It is cleverly disguised if the player has been leveling up at the expected rate. LeakedExperience lets Grune learn her ultimate spell while she is missing from the party, making it look like she gained it from the power up cutscene, making this a bit of a Zig-zagged trope.]]
* GirlInABox: When you first officially meet her, she's taking a nap in an ''[[spoiler: open coffin. In the deepest spot in a tomb]]''.
* [[spoiler:GodIsGood - And helps you directly!]]
* [[spoiler:HotGoddess]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser
* LaserGuidedAmnesia
* LoveYouAndEverybody
* MarshmallowHell- Both Senel and Moses have had Grune lovingly smother them in her bosom. [[AllMenArePerverts Lucky bastards]].
* MsFanservice
* OneHeadTaller
* OneeSama
* [[spoiler:PhysicalGod]]
* ShoutOut: [[Anime/FinalFantasyUnlimited Fabula?]] Is that you? [[spoiler: Actually maybe it is...]]
* StatuesqueStunner: She's 175 cm or 5'9". She's TALLER than Senel.
* {{Stripperiffic}} - The description of her default armor, "Cocktail Dress," reads as follows: "A revealing dress that leaves little to the imagination."
* TookALevelInBadass - [[spoiler:After regaining her memories.]]
* YinYangBomb - Somewhat, as most of her spells are curse and sea elemental. [[spoiler: Makes sense, since she's a goddess.]]

::'''Curtis and Isabella'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bantambouncers_4684.jpg

-->Voiced by: Creator/TetsuInada and Rena Mizushiro (JP), Creator/GrantGeorge and Creator/WendeeLee (EN)

The law-enforcement duo of Werites Beacon, Curtis and Isabella call themselves the Bantam Bouncers. They almost always appear together, and do far more singing and showing off than actual fighting, even though they're actually both highly competent soldiers.

* BareYourMidriff - Isabella.
* BrickJoke: Early in the game, they sing twice about how fighting is not allowed in Werites Beacon. Much ''much'' later in the game...they show up and arrest someone else for attempting to arrest Chloe and Senel in Werites Beacon.
** Hilariously, Curtis does so by appearing and doing his usual singing gig without Isabella. [[spoiler:And then '''[[TalkToTheFist decks the confused man in the face]]''' mid-sentence, triggering a cartoony curbstomp.]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The two look like something that came out of TheSeventies. Senel beats the living crap out of them (off-screen) and doesn't take them seriously. Then they lead an army against Vaclav's. Nobody was laughing at them ''then''.
* GoldfishPoopGang - Though you never actually fight them...at least you aren't ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2_SEh7eDao required]]'' to.
* {{Leitmotif}} - "Iron Hammer Time." The musical accompaniment seems to actually be in the scene.
* LetsGetDangerous - They're wacky pacifists who sing about how violence isn't allowed in the city. Then, when the war starts, they take up the reins and lead the citizens of the Legacy into battle against Vaclav's forces.
* NiceHat - Isabella is never seen without her stylized cowgirl hat.
** ...which she can ''[[ImprobableWeaponUser weaponize]]'' in battle with her "Boomerang Hat" arte.
* TheQuietOne - Isabella doesn't speak much aside from the occasional "Yes, Curtis." She does get a solo number introducing the arena, though.
* ThighHighBoots: Isabella.
* {{Stripperific}} - Isabella.
* WalkingShirtlessScene - Curtis's shirt shows off his chest.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

::'''Harriet Campbell'''

Will's nine-year-old daughter. She resents him for abandoning her and her mother.

-->Voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito (JP), ??? (EN)

* BrattyHalfPint: She's not that bratty but she does act that way towards Will, her father. She gets better especially in Will's Character Quest.
* FlowerInHerHair: The flower that's attached to her hairband. [[spoiler: It's a crystallized flower that Will and Amelia found on the Legacy before Harriet was born. They named the flower after her.]]
* LethalChef: Strangely, the only NPC of a Tales game to be a terrible chef. She gets it from her mom. Props to Will for eating her cooking everyday.
* ParentalAbandonment: The reason she came to the Legacy to find Will was because of this. She gets better.

-----
::'''Quppo, Pippo and Poppo'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/MikakoTakahashi, Sara Nakayama, and Creator/WataruHatano (JP), ??? (EN)

These three otters are the foster family of Jay and part of the Oresorens, a tribe of talking bipedal otters.

* BadassAdorable: [[spoiler: In Jay's character quest, all of the Oresoren plus Quppo, Pippo and Poppo all went to the Wings of Light to rescue Jay and Shirley. They risked their lives for Jay by slapping Solon and his henchmen]]
* [[FooFu Otter Fu]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: LOOK AT THEM! THEY'RE SO FLUFFY!
* TeamPet: Other than Giet.
* VerbalTic: "Kyu" in the Japanese version. "Ors" in the English version.

-->Voiced by: Creator/JurotaKosugi (JP), Creator/DaranNorris (EN)

* ANaziByAnyOtherName
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* [[spoiler:DiscOneFinalBoss]]

-->Voiced by: Mahito Oba (JP), ??? (EN)

One of Vaclav's Terrors. A masked swordsman. Chloe came to the Legacy to find and kill him. [[spoiler:His real name is Arnold Alcott. He is a doctor who joined Vaclav's army to use the medical knowledge from his Mengele-esque experiments to save his [[IllGirl sick daughter]].]]

* [[spoiler:AntiVillain]]
* CoolMask
* CutLexLuthorACheck: [[spoiler:He could have helped his daughter without joining Vaclav's army or killing Chloe's parents for money. Don't doctors have a good income?]]
** [[spoiler:It wasn't just about the income. He needed Vaclav's ''knowledge'' as well.]]
** [[spoiler:That and he's an apothecary, not a doctor.]]
* [[spoiler:EasilyForgiven: Despite his noble end goal, he ''did'' kinda murder Chloe's parents, and never even showed much remorse for it either due to his IDidWhatIHadToDo justifications.]]
* EnigmaticMinion
* EvilSoundsDeep: ''ESPECIALLY'' in the Japanese version!
* [[spoiler:IDidWhatIHadToDo]]
* [[spoiler: KarmaHoudini: Not killing him out of vengeance was the right move, sure, but....shouldn't he get sent to prison for all the people he's killed?]]
* [[spoiler:KnightTemplarParent: At first]]
* [[spoiler: GoodAllAlong: When compared to his teammates, at least.]]
* RedBaron - "The Vicious"

::'''Walter Delques'''

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/model09_939.jpg

-->Voiced by: Creator/TakahiroSakurai (JP), ??? (EN)

A young man who kidnaps Shirley. [[spoiler:He is one of the Ferines and kidnapped Shirley to protect her from Vaclav, and so she could awaken as the Merines.]]

* [[spoiler:BlondGuysAreEvil]]
* [[spoiler:CrazyJealousGuy: His reason for helping Maurits commit genocide? He's jealous of Senel. [[IfICantHaveYou And he doesn't even care that Shirley will die if she causes the Cataclysm.]] ]]
* [[spoiler:TheDragon]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]]
* FantasticRacism: The ''worst'' among all Ferines. He is so adamant to see the Orerines destroyed that when Maurits at least stayed civil with the team, Walter is still a huge {{Jerkass}} to them. His reasoning isn't exactly revealed, but implied toward the end that he wilfully ignores the blatant goodness of Senel and company (despite them saving his life) due to his jealousy of Senel.
* [[spoiler: HeelFaceTurn - [[FaceHeelTurn But not for long...]]]]
* HopelessBossFight: [[spoiler:3]] of them.
* {{Leitmotif}} - Appropriately titled "Delques Black Wings."
* {{Jerkass}}: He trumps Senel on this department.
* MeaningfulName: His last name means black wings in [[{{Fictionary}} Relares]]
* NeverMyFault: His [[spoiler: dying words are blaming Senel for all that has happened to him; he honestly never once considered that maybe he brought a lot of his problems on himself.]]
* PetTheDog: He has one act of decency toward someone who isn't Shirley in the game, which is giving Fenimore a job to do in the war against Vaclav after seeing how desperately she wants to help out somehow. Later, he's also upset when [[spoiler: Maurits lets Fenimore die.]]
* TheRival
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[spoiler: Evidently, he was intended to join the party]]
* [[spoiler:YouCanBarelyStand]]: [[spoiler:His insistence on fighting the party despite being heavily wounded gets him killed.]]

::'''Maurits Welnes'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/RyuzaburoOtomo (JP), Creator/KimStrauss (EN)

The leader of the Ferines.

* [[spoiler:BlondGuysAreEvil. Well ''DUH'', this is a ''TalesSeries'' game, they ''love'' this trope]].
* ChewingTheScenery: At the end of the main story mode.
-->'''Maurits''': [[spoiler:Grant me your POWER! THE POWER TO TRANSCEND!!!]]
* CoolOldGuy [[spoiler: [=/=] EvilOldFolks]]
* [[spoiler:EasilyForgiven - [[KarmaHoudini So easily it hurts]].]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]]
* [[spoiler: FantasticRacism]]
* [[spoiler: KarmaHoudini]]
* [[spoiler:ManipulativeBastard]]
* MeaningfulName - As a Ferines, his last name is by definition meaningful. It translates to "nature person." [[spoiler: And he wants to terraform the planet back to its original state.]]
* [[spoiler:NoOneCouldSurviveThat]]: [[spoiler:After being defeated, he absorbs Nerifes' power and fights the party again. After being defeated again, he draws so much power from Nerifes that he collapses. He later uses his body to channel Nerifes, a process which was supposed to destroy his mind. Yet this appears to have had no ill effects on him judging from his role in the character quests, and nothing is ever explained as to why he's still alive.]]
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel]]: [[spoiler: He uses his body to channel Nerifes.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure [[spoiler: Even in the character quests, too.]]
* [[spoiler:TreacherousAdvisor]]
* [[spoiler: VillainousBreakdown: He loses it when Shirley quits being the Merines and draws Nerifes into his own body instead.]]
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist: He wants to revert the world to what it once was (an endless ocean) so his people can prosper, even if it means killing all the Orerienes.]]

-----

::'''Fenimore Xelnes'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/AmiKoshimizu (JP), Creator/PhileceSampler (EN)

A Ferines who befriends Shirley.

* [[spoiler: DiedInYourArmsTonight]]
* FantasticRacism: She hates the Orerienes because she was tortured by Vaclav, though she seems to get over a lot of it after Senel and the rest of the party rescue her and help defeat Vaclav.
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice - See TakingTheBullet below]]
* MeaningfulName: Her last name means blessing in [[{{Fictionary}} Relares]].
* [[spoiler:TakingTheBullet - The captain of the Gadorian Knights is about to stab Shirley for "conspiring with the Crusand Empire against Gadoria" for being used to power the Nerifes Cannon. Shirley is prepared to [[TakingTheBullet take the stab]] that was intended to kill a Ferines woman who was protecting her, but Fenimore jumped in front of Shirley at the last minute. Then [[MoralEventHorizon Maurits lets Fenimore die]], hoping that her death at the hands of Orerines will be the final push Shirley needs to complete the Rite of Accession. [[FromBadToWorse It is]].]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Toward Senel and the group for a while, claiming she's only helping them for Shirley's sake while blushing and generally showing signs of liking them more than she'd like to admit.

-----

::'''Thyra Welzes'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/AmiKoshimizu (JP), ??? (EN)

Fenimore's twin sister. [[spoiler:She arrives on the Legacy after Shirley fails to avenge Fenimore by killing all of the Orerines.]]

* [[spoiler:BackupTwin]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Fenimore mentions her early in the game.
* FantasticRacism: Against the Orerines. Unlike her sister, she doesn't really get over it.
* MeaningfulName: Her last name means hope in [[{{Fictionary}} Relares]].
* WhatTheHellHero: When she meets Shirely, she demands to know why the latter seeks peace after everything the Orienes did to their people, [[MoralMyopia ignoring of course what the Ferines did.]]

-----

::'''Stella Telmes'''

-->Voiced by: MieSonozaki (JP), Nicole Karrer (EN)

Shirley's older sister, and Senel's former girlfriend. Presumed dead after the attack that cost them their home, though she is eventually revealed to be alive (though comatose) on the Legacy, as one of Vaclav's captives. [[spoiler:Her consciousness is linked to the Legacy, and she rescues Senel a number of times over the game, though she endangers Shirley badly in the process. About a third of the way through the game, Stella sacrifices herself to stop the Nerifes Cannon, and dies despite Senel and Shirley's efforts to save her.]]

* AlwaysSaveTheGirl - Not exactly how you'd think. [[spoiler: She seems overall far more concerned about the well-being of her love interest (Senel) than her sister (Shirley), and on occasion came to Senel's aid while ignoring Shirley, who was in much greater peril and had the fate of the world resting on her safety.]]
* [[spoiler:GoodAngelBadAngel]] - She takes the form of [[spoiler:Senel's fears and doubts]] towards the end of the main quest.
* GoodIsNotNice - She's a goodie, no doubt about that, but she sure is selective about her niceness.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]] - [[spoiler: Despite her intentions she made things worse.]]
* [[spoiler:TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Senel believes this but no one else does.]]
* [[spoiler:JerkWithAHeartOfGold - Even if she is a good person, when you look past Senel's [[UnreliableNarrator unreliable narration]], you'll probably find yourself thinking "[[{{JerkAss}} What a jerk]]!" from time to time.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* MeaningfulName - Like all the Ferines. "Telmes" means "guiding star", which is appropriate if redundant.
* PosthumousCharacter: Kinda... While she's not dead, 90% of her scenes are flashbacks.
* PlayingWithFire: Several Fernies possess the ability to manifest their Teriques as wings. Shirley's take on a fiery, phoenix-like appearance.
* PuritySue: Deconstructed in-universe. [[spoiler: Senel believes her to be a paragon of sweetness and light because he was in love with her and the NostalgiaFilter further affected his judgement. Outside of his unreliable narration, we see that she was a BigSisterBully to Shirley and cares more about her boyfriend than the rest of her race and everyone else on the Legacy.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Shirley. Her Teriques even implies that her strongest elemental focus was on Fire, whereas Shirley's is definitely Sea.
* StellarName
* [[spoiler:WeHardlyKnewYe]]

-----

::'''Nerifes'''

-->Voiced by: ??? (JP), ??? (EN)

The incarnation of the ocean who is worshipped by the Ferines. [[spoiler:It seeks to flood the world, both to reverse the damage caused by the Orerines' terraforming and to avenge the fallen Ferines.]]

* [[spoiler:BigBad: Of the main story.]]
* [[spoiler:DefeatMeansFriendship]]: [[spoiler:Losing in combat calms its rage.]]
* [[spoiler:DemonicPossession]] - to [[spoiler: the Merines.]]
* [[EvilCounterpart Angry Counterpart]]: to the [[spoiler: Nerifes of the Quiet Lands.]]
* GodIsGood: The deity worshiped by the Ferines, who powers their eres and sends a ChosenOne to save them from the evil monsters. [[spoiler: Those monsters are ''humans'' and the Merines will use a tidal wave to exterminate them.]]
* BlueAndOrangeMorality
* [[spoiler:MakingASplash]]
* MeaningfulName - Loosely, "the mind of the sea."

-----

::'''Solon'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/BinShimada (JP), ??? (EN)

A sadistic ninja master. He comes to the Legacy in the Character Quests with an evil purpose. Solon is also [[spoiler: Jay's surrogate father and teacher.]]

* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Foster Parent]]
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: forces Jay into working for him again by talking about loud about his fantasies of slaughter the Oresoren.]]
* KickTheDog: He crossed the MoralEventHorizon long ago and this is how he keeps going.
* PsychoForHire
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: Before he dies, he goes ballistic with rage at how Jay and his "family" could be strong enough to defeat him.]]

-----

::'''Schwartz'''

-->Voiced by: [[spoiler: Creator/AyakoKawasumi]] (JP), [[spoiler: Creator/LaraJillMiller]] (EN)

A mysterious woman who is related to the black mist that appears during the Character Quests. [[spoiler:She is one half the Goddess that created the world. She has decided that her creation is flawed and that the only way that people will ever be happy is if she destroys the universe and recreates it.]]

* [[spoiler:[[AsLongAsThereIsEvil As Long As There Is Despair]]]]
* [[spoiler: BigBad: Of the Character Quests.]]
* BladeOnAStick
* CoolMask
* DarkActionGirl
* DramaticUnmask: [[spoiler:In the ending, it is revealed that she is Grune's EvilTwin, though even before then one can notice a resemblance.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilMatriarch]] - Some of her lines while you fight her 'definitely'' indicate this!
* [[spoiler:EvilTwin]]: To [[spoiler:Grune]].
* [[spoiler:GodIsEvil: She's not "God" per se, but rather all of Grune's negative emotions.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: Has one. You can listen to it in the bar in the inn's basement, but it's not on the OST, sadly.
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel: Defied. She tries to transform by killing all of the Legacy's inhabitants and absorbing their despair, but the party's allies manage to stop her.]]
* [[spoiler:PhysicalGod]]
