Characters from Agarest Senki :
Characters debuting in Generation 1
"A true soldier becomes a shield for the weak, even if that means shedding his own blood."
The protagonist of Generation 1 but he's not the protagonist
who started the process of becoming a Spirit Vessel. He has a good reason to do this, but he unfortunately gave his descendants a lot of trouble thanks to his actions.
- The Ace: A superb swordsman and military leader who is admired by nearly every person he meets. This gets deconstructed in later generations where the pressure of living up to his legacy weighs heavily on all of his descendents.
- Adorkable: When forced to act like a normal person, Leonhardt becomes almost laughably awkward.
- Ancestral Weapon: His sword, Treasure Sword Of Oath, is one.
- Awesome McCoolname: Leonhardt Raglen?
- Badass: To put this in perspective, in the beginning, he renounced his humanity and station to save Ellis (in a sense, doing a g-rated equivalent to flipping the bird to one of the most powerful kingdoms in the nation). After this, he proceeds to beat the crap out of his former squad, including his former second in command and his superior.
- Badass Family: The head of it! He's a badass, the wife he eventually marries is a badass, their son is a badass, their daughter-in-law is a badass... it's just five continuous generations of badasses breeding together.
- Badass Longcoat: Sports a nice looking one.
- Badass Normal: Before his contract with Dyshana. Stood up against his superior and his men and was still able to win.
- Big Good: Alongside Dyshana, though in his case it's more for his heroic spirit and charisma rather than any sort of power.
- Bishōnen: It starts with him and runs in the family from thereon.
- Chick Magnet: He's got at least four women interested in him, and likely at least a few more.
- The Chosen One: Him and his entire descendants get chosen to be the seal to an evil god who started this mess.
- Comically Missing the Point: When Winfield gushes about hot springs, all Leonhardt can think of is boiling eggs in them. Not as bad as his son Ladius though.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: He starts out in the game as a fairly decent fighter. He gets worf'd by the Dark Knight after two battles.
- Deal with the Devil: In a sense he did with Dyshana, but it was more for a noble cause. Unfortunately, his descendants don't seem like the idea.
- Deadpan Snarker: For example, upon being told that The Empire will hunt him down if he defects, he responds with a snarky "Your concern is appreciated".
- Decoy Protagonist: He's in the artwork and promotional videos, and his name and image are present in the opening. He's not the protagonist of the game however; it's his great-great-grandson Rex who's the protagonist.
- Disc One Nuke: Every single Agarest player out there would tell you to keep Leo because of his Willpower skills. His Energy + Unleash All + Parry = easy SP gain.
- Dreaming of Things to Come: He dreamed that he would be killed by a black knight. Three minutes later, he just did.
- The Dulcinea Effect: Somewhat. He'd fight to the death for ANYONE, Ellis was just the tipping point.
- Fire-Forged Friends: With Zerva.
- Flash Step: In the 2nd game, he gets this special treatment in his moving animation. Must be the result of his popularity.
- The Hero: In the first generation.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: His starting weapon is the Treasure Sword of Oath, which doubles as an Ancestral Weapon.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: He's hated by the other nobles.
- Ideal Hero: Compared to his more flawed descendents, Leonhardt is about as much of a straight up hero as you can get.
- Implausible Fencing Powers: In the second game. Three quick strikes to your opponent counts as one hit!? Must be all that popularity...
- Interspecies Romance: One of his three potential brides is Fyuria, the syrium, whereas he's human.
- Japanese Pronouns: At the very beginning of the game he uses "Watashi", but when introducing himself to Ellis, stops mid-sentence and changes to the less-formal "Ore". (The change is not translated in the accomanying text in the English version because it wouldn't make much sense.)
- Lolicon: At least according to Luana he's one...
- Magikarp Power: In the second game he starts at level 1, and you can't get him until a little bit into the second generation. However this incredibly low starting level proves to be his strongest point, as by this point you'll have plenty of PP to pump up his stats, Vitality to be exact. You gain health at a rate of your level times your natural Vitality, making the stat exponentially more powerful the higher it is from lower levels. Combine this with him being one of the only characters able to learn No Fear, an ability that negates all damage per hit to the party equal to the caster's health, and he can easily reduce damage from a boss's Original Skill to nothing.
- Master Swordsman: His nickname is credited to his skill in battle and the appearance of his sword.
- Meaningful Name: Leonhardt has the heart of a lion
- Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: And if Dyshana didn't show up, we'd get no game!
- Oblivious to Love: Not to the extent of his son Ladius, but quite a few things fly over Leonhardt's head when it comes to romance.
- Popularity Power: Out of every single Idea Factory/Compile Heart game, he's at the top of the line as to who people want at Agarest Senki 2.
- Prequel Hook: What the significance of that Treasure Sword of Oath will be touched on Agarest ZERO.
- Posthumous Character: After the 2nd generation.
- Red Baron: Golden Leo
- Road Cone: Before Zero was even released, Leo ruled out everyone but Friedelinde or Routier for Sieghart, and Mimel for Leonis... Unless Leonhardt is Not Quite Human.
- There's one thousand years between Agarest and ZERO. Pretty sure the line would have been diluted by then.
- Rousing Speech: Over a boulder blocking their way. No kidding.
- Simple Yet Awesome: In the second game he is incredibly useful; No Fear, able to assist with higher ranks of Arc-en-ciel, his Original Skills when reversed cut a single enemy's stats drastically or push a large group of enemies' turns back, and his leadership bonus grants an increase to attack and defense and spreads the party so that they won't get hit in an group attack. He'd be a downright Game Breaker if it wasn't for the fact that he doesn't have any Finishing Strikes (though you could technically compensate by having the other three party members pull off said Finish Strikes).
- Single-Stroke Battle: His first EX Skill one-slashing a group of enemies.
- Super Mode: Unleash All. Obscenely high stat boosts that trigger whenever Leonhardt is at or below 25% health. In all honesty, there is no single enemy or boss that can really stand up to him when he's in that state. While his descendants and his ancestors get it as well, Leonhardt's notable in that he's the only one who gets it as his first Willpower.
- Sword of Plot Advancement: His golden sword is pretty much used by his descendants.
- Fridge Logic: Why you could not equip that sword even though the protagonists of each generation are seen holding it is beyond this troper. I mean, the sword itself has some pretty good stats, but you don't get to use it in gameplay until the True Ending path. At least Radiata Stories had some kind of justification for it, but not this game. The stats of the sword could have really saved Leo from Vashtor.
- Sword Pointing: Does this all the time in cutscenes.
- True Companions: With his party. Weaponized with Absolute End.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: How the other generals view him.
- Wise Prince: He's a noble who ended up kicking off the events of the game by realizing how screwed up his country was and trying to fight against it.
- You Can't Fight Fate: He is actually ZERO's protagonist Sieghait descendant and was fated to become a Spirit Vessel anyway ever since he was born.
The woman who gave Leonhardt and his descendants their destiny. Not much is known about her when you first encounter her. She is actually one-half of Chaos sent by Chaos himself to destroy and rebuild the world because he sees that the world itself is getting out of hand.
- Ambiguously Evil: The contract she makes with Leonhardt seems very suspicious, and she spends all of her time on the sidelines being cryptic, making her come off as a rather dubious character. Subverted when she actually aids Rex in stopping Chaos in the final hour, proving her credentials as a good guy.
- Big Good: A position she shares with Leonhardt. While she's the all-powerful being who assigned him his journey, Leonhardt is generally seen more as this by his companions simply due to his charisma.
- Creepy Monotone: Starts to snap out of it later on.
- Deal with the Devil: She gave it to Leonhardt when she first met him who was nearly dying of wounds.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: She comes off as rather cold and emotionless for most of the game, but warms up after a long time.
- Deuteragonist: During the fifth generation.
- Distaff Counterpart: To Chaos.
- Eleventh Hour Ranger: Joins incredibly late into the game, and only if the player is on the route to the true end, but proves to be the powerhouse you'd expect her to be.
- High Heel-Face Turn: Chaos’ Distaff Counterpart is the one who ends up redeeming herself.
- Hot Goddess
- Louis Cypher: She's part of Chaos.
- Lightning Bruiser: A magically inclined one. For all of her short availability, Dyshana is one of the best mages the party can have.
- Male Gaze: Your first CG is with her with a full body shot showing off her breasts and abs.
- The Mole: She betrays her boss at the end though.
- Ms. Exposition: Justified in that she’s the only member of the party with any knowledge of how the pillars work, and also subverted in that she intentionally withholds information from them.
- Mysterious Waif: You don’t learn anything about her in the first generation other than that she’s the one who gave the Raglen family their destiny. This changes in the later generations, but she still retains the characterization.
- One-Winged Angel: Her "Chaos Dyshana" mode, which she only enters during the final battle. As expected, it's pretty damn strong.
- Physical God: Is one half of Chaos.
- Power Gives You Wings: Gets 6 of them in Chaos Dyshana mode.
- Rei Ayanami Expy: Blue hair? Check. Initially has no emotions but gradually develops some? Check. Secretly a god? Check. Yup, she fits.
- Screw Destiny: Completely betrays Chaos’ plans for the annihilation of all life at the final hour.
- Sinister Scythe: Her primary weapon once you finally get her. It matches Chaos'.
- Not So Stoic: Towards the end of the game, especially on during the true end, Dyshana proves to have plenty of untapped emotion within her.
- When She Smiles: Everyone agrees she is the cutest thing ever
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Is that aquamarine or what?
The first female character encountered in the game. She was cornered by a group of soldiers and was saved by Leonhardt. Falls in love with him and promises to take care of his descendants
- Badass Adorable: Summons a Demi-God at age 12 and can kick as much ass as the trained soldiers she travels with.
- Cannot Spit It Out: She falls in love with Leonhardt, but she could not spit it out (being twelve years old at that time). She takes care of his descendants to posthumously show her love for him.
- Can't Hold Her Liquor: Gets drunk quite easily.
- Conveniently an Orphan: In a new scene in Zero's Digest Mode for the first game, it's revealed that Teonor is not really her grandfather, but simply found her in a sealed room on Erin with only a staff and note from her mother. This was her other reason for taking care of Leonhardt's descendants.
- The Chick: The most caring, emotional and levelheaded person on the party throughout the game.
- Child Prodigy: High Elves are extremely potent spell casters, but her being able to summon a Larva at the age of 12 is still considered an anomaly.
- Cool Big Sis: Her dynamic with Duran can be best described as like a patient older sister trying to get her brother out of his shell.
A larva accidentally summoned by Ellis. Leonhardt sees him and thinks he's an enemy who is going to eat Ellis; obviously he fights him. The fight gets cut short after Ellis clears up the misunderstanding. He at first does not have any emotion whatsoever, but begins to develop emotions the farther the story goes.
- Badass: Being a minor god certainly helps him here.
- The Big Guy: He's huge, strong and silent: a textbook Big Guy.
- Brought Down to Normal: When summoned out of their dimension, Larva are forced to condense their power to match that of the person who summoned them, meaning Borgnine only uses a fraction of his true power throughout the game.
- But Now I Must Go: Leaves Ellis towards the end of the game to return to his world to tell his Larva brethren what emotions are.
- Character Development: Becomes more emotive as the game goes on
- Dark Is Not Evil: Anyone would have suspected this guy to be evil when you first meet him. Until Ellis clears things up for Leo and the players.
- Deadpan Snarker: As he starts to develop emotions, he becomes one of these.
- Guardian Entity: What he was basically summoned as.
- I'm a Humanitarian: Eats Winfield per orders from Ellis. Even he doesn't wanna do it either.
- Our Gods Are Different: Larvae are considered as lesser gods in this game.
- Physical God: He's a Larva.
- The Quiet One: He's a man of few words to be sure.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Vashtor's Red, though this only becomes obvious after the latter is revealed to be a Larva as well.
- Satellite Character: Has little character beyond being Ellis' guardian initially, but gains more of a character later on.
- The Stoic: Big time. Helped by the fact he literally doesn't have any emotions when he first joins the party.
- Not So Stoic: More noticeable later on. Which is natural, since his whole character arc is him learning to feel emotions himself.
- Undying Loyalty: To Ellis, and by extension, the Raglens.
who could see the future
, but cannot anymore due to the visions being dark. All she sees is Leonhardt, his fate, and his descendants. She has a third eye
which she does not bother hiding even though her kind is being hunted.
- Badass: Her race has been hunted to near extinction and the remaining few stay in hiding in fear of becoming hunted themselves. Vira-Lorr proudly shows off her third eye and fights off any potential hunters with a smile on her face.
- Be Yourself: Risks being killed at any given moment to do this.
- Boobs of Steel: Averted. Despite her large chest she's more magically oriented.
- Christmas Cake: She's attractive, but she's over 25. Just don't remind her.
- Cool Big Sis: She acts like one towards Ellis.
- Deadpan Snarker: The biggest one on the team, and that's saying something.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Her main element is earth.
- Informed Ability: Her visions rarely if ever come into play in the plot. Justified in that the forces of darkness are obscuring their power.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Though she's snarky and lazy, mostly that's a reaction to the fact people are so prejudiced against her race she's had to fight off bounty hunters all her life. She's a lot warmer than she first appears.
- Lady Drunk: Vira-Lorr Loves her alcohol.
- Lazy Bum: Noted to do little more than sit around, drink and snark at camp.
- Light Feminine Dark Feminine: The dark feminine to Ellis' light.
- Magic Knight: When you first get her, she can equip both wands and swords, though later on her physical abilities will be far outclassed by other fighters.
- Seer: Like all onerthes, that third eye gives her the ability to see the future. Supposedly.
- The Smart Guy: Her cool head, magical skills and cognitive abilities clearly make her this to the Raglan family guardians. She is also quite good at strategizing during major battles for someone who has never served in the army.
- The Tease: She loves to flirt and mess with peoples heads, which fits with her being The Trickster in general.
- Waif Prophet: She used to be one, but she's pretty much given up on it, because her visions have grown too dark to make out.
who fights against the Gridamas due to the fact that his kind has been persecuted. He's also the older brother of Fyuria. Initially, he hates Leonhardt due to the fact that his kind is being persecuted, but later develops a strong sense of friendship with him. He later promises Leonhardt that he would take care of his descendants.
- Aloof Big Brother: Towards Fyuria, thoug he does care deeply for her.
- Anti-Hero: Introduced as a type IV, but eventually mellows out to a type II.
- Asexuality: Never shows interest in anything more than a platonic relationship towards anyone for over one hundred years.
- Big Brother Mentor: Has elements of this towards all of Leonhardt's descendents, most notably Ladius.
- Character Development: Initially cold to the party simply for having humans in it, after travelling with Leonhardt for a while he realizes that every race has good and bad people and generally gets over his racism. By the second generation he's happily raised Leonhardt's son as his own with no complaints.
- The Comically Serious: Whenever he's in a funny cutscene, he'll be this.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Despite being a syrium, and in general looking like a stereotypical JRPG villian, he's one of Leonhardt and his descendants' most loyal allies.
- Fantastic Racism: Hates humans with a burning passion, though Leonhardt manages to get him over this.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Cold and distant to everybody at first, but clearly a good person deep down.
- The Lancer: The only other experienced military leader on the team besides Leonhardt, the two butt heads over their leadership strategies frequently early on but grow to become the most trusted of allies by the end of the first generation. This extends to the following generations, where Zerva takes on a sort of advisor role towards Leonhardt's descendants.
- The phrase "Zerva, your in charge." even becomes a sort of Running Gag later on.
- Magic Knight: Initially a decent fighter as well as a great mage, though as time goes on his melee skills fall behind the rest of the party and he's forced into being a straight mage.
- Mr. Fanservice: Downplayed in comparison to the girls, but Zerva is a stoic Bishōnen who constantly wears tight-fitting leather armor that accentuates his muscles. He's got a few real life fangirls because of this.
- My Sister Is Off-Limits!: Initially wary of Fyuria's relationship with Leonhardt, but after warming up to him admits the he is happy to have his sister marry such a good man.
- Older Than They Look: He's at least 160 years old when Leonhardt meets him.
- Our Elves Are Better: Syrium are closer to traditionally dark elves than Agarest dark elves are, and he certainly thinks he's better at first.
- Parental Substitute: To Ladius, who picked up many of his mannerisms.
- Proud Warrior Race Guy: At first. He mellows out by the second generation.
- Sinister Scythe: His default weapon.
- The Stoic: Not nearly to the extent of Dyshana or Borgnine, but Zerva tends to keep his cool at all times.
- Stop Helping Me!: In-Universe; he'll chastise you for healing him instead of attacking an enemy.
- The Straight Man: Whenever he's forced into a humorous scene, he'll be this.
A normal human who stole the Bracelet of the Covenant
and is cursed to live a long life
and that it slowly turns him into one of the Dark Knights. Whoever holds the bracelet is tasked to give it to the evil god and therefore cannot die until his purpose is finished. Of course, Winfield wouldn't want any of that so he joins the party.
- Anti-Hero: Type IV from beginning to end, though he's a nice enough guy that you might not always notice.
- Badass Abnormal: The only human to stay on the team for the entire game due to the immortality granted to him by his bracelet.
- Born Unlucky: His parents and girlfriend die before the game begins and it only gets worse from there.
- Bromantic Foil: To all of the Raglans. Some appreciate it more than others.
- Butt Monkey: You'd feel sorry for this guy with how often he gets beat up.
- Chewing the Scenery: With Thoma, especially at the hot springs. This behavior is largely what gets him caught as he spends so much time doing it he fails to notice that he's been noticed until confronted.
- Chivalrous Pervert: Oh so much. As much as he's willing to be a pervert, most of his rules regarding women can be summed up as "Never do anything to truly anger or harm them.".
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Tends to amp up his own incompetence to throw people off of the fact that he's an extremely deadly fighter with the power of a god.
- Cursed with Awesome: His curse is that he gets to be one of the Dark Knights if he doesn't find a way to get rid of that Bracelet. That and the fact that he has to bring it to an evil god. The catch however? He can't die because of it which helps out the party.
- A Day in the Limelight: Gets a large amount of focus during the third generation.
- Hand Cannon: You can let him equip one and he wields it one handed!
- Said Hand Cannon is the most powerful gun (and possibly possessing the highest atk stat in the game) called Revolver Cannon, which is also from or originated in Blazing Souls as Zellos' exclusive weapon. As for the firing one handed, Zellos has cybernetic arms for limbs, how Winfield manages it one has to wonder.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: Literally with Thoma, who spent the entirety of his life hanging out with Winfield. And what a bromance it was.
- Hidden Depths: Much of his behavior is largely an act to cope with his losses and his curse. By the fourth generation his frustration with his immortality and it's strain on his soul starts to become so obvious even Dyshana comments on it.
- Hot Springs Episode: Every single hot springs episode ends with him getting beaten up by Borgnine.
- Jack of All Stats: A balanced fighter all around, though late game he'll come closer to being a Glass Cannon: putting out great numbers but not taking much of a hit.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's a perverted crook whose willing to break the rules to get himself an edge over his opponent, but also clearly possesses a strong sense of justice and genuinely cares about his teammates.
- Moment Killer: If Duran winds up with Hilda in the tsunami event, Winfield is the one who finds them. Being Winfield, he proceeds to make fun of them.
- Mr. Fanservice: Like Zerva, it's downplayed, but Winfield is constantly flashing his chiseled abs directly at the camera.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: He's actually one of the brightest minds on the team, and his buffoonery is largely an act.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Guess where Thoma learned it from?
- Revenge: Why he went to steal the bracelet was because his girlfriend died during the invasion of the Gridamas empire.
- Sad Clown: Winfield is the game's primary comic relief, but also one of its most tragic characters. It reaches a point where even he starts Lampshading it.
- Sidetracked by the Missed Point: Happens when Leonhardt thinks about boiling eggs in a hot spring. He quickly catches himself doing this and gets back to the matter at hand.
- Sixth Ranger: Likely to be the last character to join the party in generation one, and easily the biggest Wild Card of the group. He also functions as both The Lancer and The Smart Guy later on due to his contrast with the heroes and skill at strategy respectively.
- Spanner in the Works: Let's just say that Summeril would have been able to complete his evil plan if the bracelet just didn't choose Winfield.
- Stepford Smiler: Becomes much more apparent later on.
- The Strategist: He's surprisingly the most capable strategist the party ever gets.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With Ellis, Zerva, and to an extent, the entire party.
One of the three love interests
of the first generation. She is a syurium herself and is the younger sister of Zerva. She initially hates Leonhardt mainly due to the fact that she hates humans, but as time goes on, she accepts Leonhardt and even loves him by the end of the first generation.
- A-Cup Angst: Heavily implied to be self concious about her lack of endowment.
- Anti-Hero: A type III who can slink into a type IV when pushed far enough.
- Badass: A given, though she stands out compared to the other two potential brides.
- Betty and Veronica: An interesting play on this. While she is both a Syrium and a complete stranger as opposed to a human and a childhood friend like Elaine, she comes off as the Veronica, however, Elaine is a Spoiled Sweet Noble while she’s a down to earth commoner, giving her strong elements of the Betty as well.
- Broken Bird: Can we really blame her for despising all Gridamas army after what they've done to her?!
- Character Development: Leonhardt manages to peel away her icy exterior and makes her let out her suppressed emotions as well as softening her view on humans considerably.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: Although she was never really an Ice Queen to anyone who wasn’t a human, and even then, for good reason, Leo still manages to warm her up.
- Deuteragonist: The first generation has a major focus on the conflict between Syrium and humans, and Fyuria has a subplot of her own dealing with gaining Zerva's acceptance. She also spends the longest amount of time with the party.
- Dual Wielding: Wields daggers as her weapon of choice, and always uses them two at a time.
- Expy: Of Hatsune Miku.
- Fantastic Racism: Hates humanity with a passion due to humans destroying her race and life. Leonhardt manages to soften her views up over time, and she comes around much faster than Zerva does.
- Fighter, Mage, Thief: The thief of the three love interests.
- Fragile Speedster: As is standard for Thief type characters, she's quick, but she goes down easily.
- Freudian Excuse: Her cold demeanor has similar roots to the other Syrium, stemming from the mass genocide caused by humans. However, Fyuria’s demeanor is even harsher than most Syrium due to her own brother’s refusal to allow her to fight alongside him and following abandonment. Both of these have made Fyuria desperate to be taken seriously by others, causing her to act like the ruthless racist that she isn’t.
- Good Is Not Nice: The harshest of the three brides, but still a good person at heart.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Yeah, she really acts like a jerkass, but she's got a sweet heart deep down.
- The Lancer: A position she shares with Zerva during the first generation.
- Interspecies Romance: Despiet her initial bigotry against humans, she's still a valid love interest for Leonhardt, who happens to be human.
- Official Couple: Tends to get shown in official art with Leonhardt more than the other two, and the most commonly shown Ladius is her son.
- Older Than They Look: Leonhardt sure was surprised of the fact that she is waaaaaaaaaay older than him.
- Stripperific: Just look at her outfit. It's amazing she even classifies as being clothed.
- Too Many Belts: This is pretty much her clothes.
- Tsundere: She's a Type A variant, acting frigid and hostile
One of the three love interests of the first generation. She meets the party while she was surrounded by monsters. Trying to act like a Damsel in Distress
, she thinks she could manipulate the party. She grants them an audience to the king of Rigulus.
- Action Girl: She’s clearly an experienced killer, and sees violence as more of a means to an end than anything else.
- Badass Adorable: The adorable part actually manages to make her more intimidating due to how perpetually cheery she is while slaughtering.
- The Bard: Her class is Dancer, and is almost entirely a support one. Most players tend to shelf her early on due to her spooniness.
- Chivalrous Pervert: The most openly flirtatious to Leonhardt of the three love interests, and engages in flirty banter with Winfield frequently. She’s also one of the only characters to show any attraction to Zerva. Still, like Winfield this is more to help her project her “Cute” image than anything else.
- Cute but Cacophonic: Vira-Lorr lands a few good snarks about her annoying voice.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Saw her family slaughtered and her mother raped in front of her at a young age, leaving her a broken woman with a twisted view of humanity who is only capable of expressing love through physical intimacy. Leonhardt can help her get over this.
- The Fake Cutie: Basically her entire character; she acts cute and childish, but she's really just acting, and is in fact a lethal and bloodthirsty killer.
- Fighter, Mage, Thief: The mage of the three love interests.
- Genki Girl: Although her genkiness comes off as rather forced.
- Genre Savvy/Genre Blindness: Manages to be both extremely aware of fantasy cliches and completely naive to political drama at the same time.
- Hot-Blooded: An extremely unsettling variant. She pursues battle and bloodshed with an extreme level of almost childish delight, to the point it's genuinely creepy.
- Improbable Weapon User: The official name of her weapon is a breaker. How she uses it is another story.
- Stepford Smiler: She does have a genuine smile, but her hatred for Gridamas is stronger than hate itself.
- Swiss Army Weapon: Her weapon can be fused into one and she throws it by spinning it behind her then launch it at the enemy.
- Team Chef: The best cook of the first generation.
- The Tease: The most openly flirtatious bride.
- Third-Option Love Interest: Does not carry the obvious Betty and Veronica vibe Elaine and Fyuria do, and has the least amount of history with Leonhardt, as such, she's the least popular choice for players.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Goes to play as a Damsel in Distress waiting for her white prince with a white steed after being cornered by monsters. Too bad for her, this game is all about war drama.
One of the three love interests of the first generation. She is a general of Gridamas who initially reluctantly fights against the party, but switches sides for the sake of Lucrellia.
- Action Girl: The most actiony of the three arguably; being a highly decorated general and all.
- Anti-Villain: Initially a member (Albeit an unwilling one) of the Five Man Band, and only joins the party half way through the game, although she’s more than established as a good person by then.
- Arranged Marriage: Initially had one to Leonhardt, though it got called off once he went rogue. She did have feelings for him though.
- Betty and Veronica: The kind, Proper Lady Betty who shares a common background with Leo to the initially cold, exotic Fyuria’s Veronica. However, due to being a noble woman from the enemy side, she definitely has a twist of Veronica in her. She’s also the Archie to the kind and courageous-yet impoverished Leonhardt’s Betty, and the cold and pragmatic-yet wealthy and noble Melchior’s Veronica.
- The Big Girl: A Mighty Glacier rivaling Borgnine, and frequently noted for being one of the best fighters on the team.
- High Heel-Face Turn: The only important woman on the villain’s side is the first to defect to Leonhardt’s, partially due to her love for him.
- Lady of War: She's a general of Gridamas.
- Lethal Chef: Leo even compares it to death on a battlefield.
- Love at First Sight: Admits this was the case when she first saw Leonhardt if he marries her.
- Mighty Glacier: Great attack and defense, and while she’s not quite as sturdy as Borgnine, she makes up for it by wielding the potentially Game Breaking spears, which boast much better range and skills then fists do. She comes with the typical lack of mobility but in comparison to Borgnine, she’s closer to a Lightning Bruiser.
- Morality Pet: To Melchior, albeit a very weak one. She makes him hesitate on carrying out some of his actions, but she never stops him.
- Nice Girl: Easily the nicest of the three potential brides, but in an interesting twist, the only one who starts out as a villain.
- Nice Hat: Her cool little winged hat thingy.
- Not So Different: Just as perverted as Luana when drunk.
- Only Sane Woman: The only general to speak up and oppose Herztfeldt’s plot.
- Proper Lady: Raised since birth to be one.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Like Leonhardt, she's a noble who is quite active in trying to help people.
- Shoulders of Doom: Has one large lion head shaped spaulder.
- Silk Hiding Steel: A total Yamato Nadeshiko… who will gladly slaughter anyone who she sees as corrupt.
- Sixth Ranger: Will always be the last person to join the party.
- Token Good Teammate: She, along with Largen, is this to Gridamas.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: Trained to be one her entire life and is elegant and polite… but is also an unshakeable force of nature on the battlefield who wields pole arms.
Characters debuting in Generation 2
Ladius Raglen/Ladifour Von Busser
"I have a destiny. I must fulfil that destiny, even if it means giving up everything else."
Son of Leonhardt and the protagonist of the second generation. He is also the adopted son of Howell Von Busser due to the fact that Von Busser doesn't have any children. Serious, calm, and diligent, he's always committed like his father to do what is right. After putting down a rebellion, he gets accused as the guy who started the rebellion, so he took his loyal men and ran all the way to another country just to escape. This nearly also cost his friendship with his childhood friend Valeria.
Depending on who you marry, his armor would either be red, blue, or silver.
- Awesome McCoolname: Has two of them.
- Because Destiny Says So: Sadly, this makes him the most hated protagonist of all generations.
- Bishōnen: Considerably less so than the other members of his family, but still very handsome.
- Caught in the Rain: More like he and the rest of the party fall down into a cave. You get to choose among the three love interests as to who accompanies him.
- Chaste Hero: The most chaste one out of the five! It's also part of why he gets Mistaken for Gay.
- Expy: Red!Ladius looks a little like a certain spikey-haired protagonist we all know of.
- Generation Xerox: His storyline is pretty much what would happen if Leo instead was a serious guy and is oblivious to the feelings of women.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Can potentially be half-human and half syrium, depending on if Fyuria is his mother.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: No matter who you choose to be the mother and have a different weapon for him, in cut scenes, he's always carrying Leo's sword.
- Homeless Hero: He gets driven out from his home after the start of his arc.
- Honor Before Reason: So much that, during a breakout, he initially refused to leave his prison cell because he hadn't been sentenced yet.
- Interspecies Romance: He can potentially wed the half-Neocollom Sherufanir.
- Knight in Shining Armor: He's the only one who wears an armor in his family.
- Love You and Everybody: Does not know the meaning of romance at all.
- Valeria caught on this one very badly, when she asks him whether he has someone he likes or not, he says the person is right in front of him, think you locked Valeria's ending? No, he then says that in front of him and everyone else.
- Mistaken for Gay: Take a look at most of his tropes. Now consider the fact that he apparently spends more time with Zerva and Vashtor than any of the women in the group. Is it any wonder Sherufanir starts to wonder for a little while?
- Not Distracted by the Sexy: Count how many times he's been in a situation and he goes "uh ok."
- Oblivious to Love: This guy does not know the meaning of love.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Personality wise, he is the blue oni to Valeria's red oni.
- The Spock: Has a few traces of this, such as initially refusing to aid the people on the south coast because he has a "duty to the many" that cannot be outweighed by his "duty to the few". Sound familiar?
A man Ladius found in a beach one day. Since he has an amnesia, he decides to say with Ladius until his memories come back. During that time, he teaches Ladius on swordsmanship and is well-known in Graccea as the best swordsman in that country. He is pretty much considered to be the greatest threat to the Von Busser household. He's actually the Dark Knight who curb stomped Leo when he first encountered him.
- The Atoner: If you let him redeem himself. He's got a lot of atoning to do when you find out his past in ZERO (of course, most of them were not his fault).
- Badass: As proven by his Badass Creed
: Fool, your existence itself is a already a sin. Then I will show you, the fate that is carved on you, the price would be your life though...Suffer the eternal suffering, in the rift of the worlds! Crucifixion
- Obviously Evil: Well, you may think so at first, but he lost his memory, so he really is on your side... at least, until he regains his memory about halfway through the fourth generation. Just when you were starting to think he WOULDN'T betray you.
- The Plan: Even when he was on the enemy side. Basically, it involves destroying a fort just to kill everyone. Even if the party survived, the enemies would be able to counterattack.
- Red Baron: Crimson Fang
- Red-Headed Hero Also an Evil Red Head, depending on when you want to check in.
- The Reliable One: Remarked as such in-universe for being there whenever he's needed. This makes his Face-Heel Turn hit that much harder.
- Tranquil Fury: Is absolutely pissed when speaking to Lox, but completely keeps his cool despite it.
who accompanies Ladius and his descendants, just so that he could see the outside world and that he can find his resting place.
- The Big Guy: Alongside Borgnine. Whenever the party attacks a fortress most of the time their strategy for Arbol and Borgnine basically amounts to "Let them smash the enemy" or "Have them cover are retreat".
- Fertile Blood: Of a sort. When a ryulent gets too old they take root and fully become a tree. Forests tend to spring up wherever they do.
- Friend to All Children: At least according to Winfield.
- Gameplay and Story Segregation: In any cut scene, he has been described as a huge guy. Gameplay wise however, he's just as large as your own units.
- Glass Cannon: For a walking tree, he sure can't take a lot of hits.
- Nature Hero: He's a giant walking tree.
- Speech Impediment: Well, more like he says just some random stuff to the point that most of the time, you don't understand what he's trying to say.
The chief of a syrium village, she wants to escape it all and go outside for an adventure of a lifetime. Just don't ask her age.
- The Alcoholic: It's not clear how often she drinks, but she is said to be on par with Vira-Lorr at it, and at one point supposedly emptied the entire ale supply of her village.
- Jumped at the Call: And left the position of Da Chief to someone else.
- Though, she doesn't really have any part in the story at all. She's just in for the adventure.
One of the three love interests of the second generation. A childhood friend of Ladius, their friendship gets tested when Ladius decides to break free from prison and fulfill his destiny. At first, she feels betrayed but soon enough she gets to accompany him later on and become one of the three chosen women.
- Childhood Friend Romance: If you have all three women at Love aka at blushing, you get to choose whether she marries Ladius or not.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Oh so much. Sherufanir uses this to get under her skin quite often.
- Heroes Want Redheads: The game will default to her if you can't choose anyone else. Zero's digest mode has her as the canon choice as well.
- My Country, Right or Wrong: Sticks with Grugund for about two-thirds of the generation, even though it means fighting her childhood friend and crush.
One of the three love interests in the second generation. She is a priestess of Yamato in Alzai Fen who was supposed to be sacrificed to a "god", but was rescued by Ladius and the gang after finding out that it's only a larva who got Drunk on the Dark Side
. She then accompanies Ladius in his quest to save Graccea/
One of the three love interests of the second generation. She is one-half neocollom and one-half human with the blood of a priest related to god (or so it goes
). She accompanies Ladius on his adventure to save Graccea, but she does not want to fight at all.
Characters debuting in Generation 3
"We are men! To turn from a challenge would be unforgivable! We will have glory!"
The main protagonist of the third generation. He loves women and he hates cold places, both of which is the setting of his arc. He initially accompanies the gang just to find someone who could give out clues on getting rid of Winfield's bracelet, as well as being the seal on the continent of Fendias. It is when the continent is being overrun by the dark forces, and the fact that discrimination among elves is rampant is when he takes an active role in his story.
He can either have a white suit with white hair, a blue suit with blond hair, or a black suit with black hair depending on who you marry.
- Anti-Hero: In contrast to his father and grandfather, Thoma is a type III with type IV traits: a reckless wise guy whose willing to bend the rules to do what's right.
- Anything That Moves: Will hit on any woman, his mom if given half the chance, his BloodBrother's granddaughter, and a Hermaphrodite goddess!
- Technically he draws the line at his mom. His real mother anyway. In Zero he does mention to her though that if she weren't his mother, he'd make a pass at her too.
- Badass: Perhaps the biggest badass in the entire Raglen family.
A nelth girl who the party meets at Paillene. She is the only one who could design the Achilles' Heel
of Winfield's bracelet and as such goes off with the party on an adventure to help build it.
- Insufferable Genius: The first thing you learn about her is that she's incredibly talented. The second thing is that she's incredibly arrogant.
- Older Than They Look: Much much older. Even Thoma couldn't handle her due to the fact that she always talks to him like she was an older sister or a mother.
the party meets at Twulan. He claims that he's the only one who could build the very thing that could destroy Winfield's bracelet but only if he has the materials for it. He joins the party to look for said materials.
- Death from Above: All of his EX Combination Skills with the other party members end with him drilling the enemy from above.
- Jumped at the Call: Since he claims he's the only one who could build the MacGuffin to destroy the bracelet, he joins the party to search for the materials.
- Mighty Glacier: Yeah, we can say Borgnine and Vashtor fit this mold too, but Ganz's starting AP (as important to turn order as Agility, as well as the limit to which one can take actions) looks to be particularly bad—his starting gear does not seem to rectify this one bit.
A young man who fell in love with The Chief's Daughter
(said chief is also considered to be That One Boss
fyi). Unfortunately, when he saw that the Chief was having a deal with the Dark Knight, he got exiled for it. He plans to bring her back when Thoma shows up.
He is also the only normal human and thus, he ages quite noticeably.
- Ascended Fanboy: Idolized Thoma and becomes the caretaker of Duran and Rex.
- Badass Normal: He's a normal human being and yet he can keep up with the party.
One of the three love interests of the third generation. She is one half high elf and one half dark elf which unfortunately, dark elves are considered to be evil and so she was ostracized by other high elves. She first meets the party at Tweda Forest and was "rescued" by Winfield and Thoma. She takes them to Lus Soleil where she was reunited with her younger sister Faina. After saving her home, she accompanies Thoma on his mission to look for materials to break Winfield's bracelet and to save the continent.
One of the three love interests of the third generation and Lavinia's younger sister. From a very long time, she's a sickly girl who always collapses for some weird reason. She gets reunited with her sister after a long time and joins the party specifically to be with Lavinia, but also longs for the outside world.
- Big Eater: She sure can eat a lot despite the fact that she's sick. In fact, it's actually because she's sick that she eats a lot.
- Fantastic Racism: Subverted. Even though she's a half high elf-dark elf like her older sister, she doesn't look like one herself so she doesn't get as much discrimination as Lavinia. She was even considered to be the next chief of the village.
- Ill Girl: Her illness tends to come up quite often in her events, either momentarily collapsing due to it or trying to get strong enough to keep up despite it.
- Interspecies Romance: She's one of the generation's love interest options for Thoma.
- Jumped at the Call: She's so desperate for excitement and adventure after a lifetime of being frail that she eagerly agrees to join Thoma's party.
- Non-Human Humanoid Hybrid: She's a halfbreed of dark elf and high elf. Unlike her sister, she's lucky enough to still look more like a high elf, which shields her from prejudice her lineage might otherwise present her with.
- Naïve Newcomer: Has never been outside Lus Solis before, and doesn't quite understand some of Thoma's innuendos at first.
- Nice Girl: One of the friendliest girls you will ever meet, and she's the least likely of the brides to get angry at Thoma.
- Beware the Nice Ones: That said, she still flips out on him if she catches him looking through her underwear, and doesn't hesitate to stand up for her sister.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: With Lavinia, although they really care for each other.
- Spoiled Sweet: She's been spoiled on and doted due to her looking like a high elf and her constant illness, but she's still a very nice and compassionate girl.
- Took a Level in Badass: Tries to invoke this by running daily to improve her stamina.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Grade B. Bonus points due to the fact that aside from her face and elbows, it's the only skin showing (incredibly odd for Agarest).
One of the three love interests in the third generation. She first meets up with the party at Aulis Lake while the party is looking for one of the ingredients for the MacGuffin
to destroy Winfield's bracelet. She is an adventurer due to the fact that she just loves adventuring and that she can tell stories to one of the kids at the orphanage.
- Collector of the Strange: She has a rather large collection of random artifacts. In one scene involving them they all end up doing something horrible to Winfield, or in the end her and Thoma depending on your choice.
- Curtains Match the Window: Blue eyes, blue hair.
- Hot-Blooded: Has a deep passion for adventuring.
- Jumped at the Call: She joins the party just because she thinks that there will be more adventures.
Characters debuting in Generation 4
"I asked for none of this. Destiny is something the stupid use to justify their selfishness."
Son of Thoma and the fourth generation protagonist. Whatever his father Thoma was, Duran is the complete opposite. Whereas Thoma was a jolly fellow, Duran is more of a withdrawn guy who hates being the next Spirit Vessel.
The only noticeable change that you can see in Duran as to who you let Thoma marry, is that he can have either blue, red, or blond hair. Hint: their shirt color matches their mother's hair color.
- Badass: Like you'd expect anything else from this family.
- Defrosting Ice King: To all his potential brides.
- Half-Human Hybrid: If you consider this trope to cover "some nonhuman blood at some point", or for high/dark elf crossbreeds to just count as elves, then he can be this depending on his family tree.
- Heinz Hybrid: He's slightly more likely to be this, considering he can potentially have any combination of a syrium great-grandmother, a half-neocollom grandmother, and a highelf/dark elf crossbreed mother. Especially if you treat "high elf blood" and "dark elf blood" as two seperate races, which means he can be one even if Lavinia/Faina is his only non-human ancestor.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: No matter who you choose to be the mother and have a different weapon for him, in cut scenes, he's always carrying Leo's sword.
- Heroic R Ro D: Part of his generation has him bedridden and near death for overworking himself while ill.
- Interspecies Romance: Can potentially woo Silvi, a Harpuia, which is somewhere between a harpy and a bird kemonomimi Winged Humanoid.
- Jerkass -> Jerk with a Heart of Gold: His character progress over the story, from a total asshole to someone who acts nasty, but is nice deep down.
- Refusal of the Call: He refuses his call at first, but willingly accepts it in the end.
- Tsundere: Male example of the Type A version.
A neocollom the party meets near Tenedos. At first, she tries to attack the party but is later saved by the very people she attacked. Since then, she joins the party just to tag along.
The best treasure hunter in the world (or so he claims). He meets the party at Crystal Lake while he was looking for treasure. He joins the party because he think he could find more treasure if he joins with the party.
who the party meets at Crystal Lake when they were looking for a Rainbow Shard. She decides to help them, aware of the fact that she gets exiled if she helps them out. She goes with it nonetheless due to the fact that she wants to travel around the world anyway.
One of the three love interests of the fourth generation and captain of the Death-Cross. She will lend her boat only if the party gives her a Marfile fruit. When she does finally receive one, she joins the party to search for the Rainbow Shard and along the way develops an interest with Duran.
One of the three love interests of the fourth generation. She first meets the party while the party themselves were looking for the Marfile fruit. She claims she knows the location and after which, after getting herself exiled, joins the party.
- Achilles' Heel: Douse her in salt water and she can't fly at all.
- Action Girl: Show's it off quite well during her one on one fight against a Garvel.
- Bad Liar: Ryuryu sees through it instantly.
- Childhood Friend Romance: Of the Unlucky kind: Whether she marries Duran or not, the fact that she's a potential bride means that she and Keith ain't happening. Plus he, you know, dies.
- A Day in the Limelight: While Duran is bedridden and dying she goes off alone to get a Marfile Fruit to cure him.
- Determinator: Fought off against winds AND a Garvel just to get a Marfile fruit to heal Duran.
- Genki Girl: Tends to fly ahead of everyone else when she gets excited.
- Let Him Die Happily: Averted, when Keith is dying he asked her to lie one last time to make him happy, but she refuses because she can't lie to her own feelings. Result-wise she really done it though.
- Love at First Sight: If he chooses her, Silvi's dialogue implies that she fell for Duran when she first saw him.
- Manic Pixie Dream Girl: To Duran.
- Nice Girl
- Sarcasm-Blind: Subtly implied, with several of Duran's snarky comments going over her head or being taken literally.
- Silk Hiding Steel: Very polite, very friendly, and always ready to kick ass when needed.
- Walking the Earth: What she always wanted to do. She gave up on it when she realized that travelling by herself would be highly impractical, but is able to achieve her dream when the group comes along.
- Winged Humanoid: Like all Harpuia
One of the three love interests of the fourth generation, she is hailed as the most powerful fortune-teller of Enhambre. She at first tells a fortune that Duran will be with Hilda, Silvi, and herself and that Duran will have to marry him. Unfortunately, she also got picked to be the sacrifice for the local demon until Duran and the party save her. She then joins due to the stipulations she placed with Dyshana.
- Birds of a Feather: With Duran. Both of them are rather sarcastic, unpleasant people who don't think much of other people, but really do want to just make friends and enjoy a normal life.
Characters debuting in Generation 5
"Then strike me down as well. If I cannot bring back your smile, how can I hope to bring happiness to the world? How can I save the world if I cannot even save you?"
Son of Duran, the fifth generation protagonist, and THE REAL protagonist of the game.
- Badass: Oh, yes. He's the culmination of four generations of inter-badass breeding. Naturally, it's bred true.
- Badass Boast: He loves pulling this to every enemy he fights.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: Wants to save everyone. In a rare moment of vulnerability, he'll admit that he knows this is impossible, but he still wants to try.
- Covert Pervert: Admits to be enjoying the view at the hot springs.
- Expy: Of Leonhardt.
- Half-Human Hybrid: He can potentially be this, if Silvi is his mother. This makes him the only one to get notable effects from his mother's inhuman nature, unless one counts Duran's ability to inherit being a Dark-Skinned Redhead with Supernatural Gold Eyes from Lavinia: his Harpuia blood gives him wings.
- Heinz Hybrid: What he'll almost certainly be unless the player has been very dilligent about keeping his bloodline pure human. By this point, his bloodline could include any combination of syrium, neocollom, high & dark elf, or harpuia.
- The Hero: The true hero of the game, since he's the one whom succeeds at the quest which has been building up over the last four generations.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: No matter who you choose to be the mother and have a different weapon for him, in cut scenes, he's always carrying Leo's sword.
- Likes Older Women: The only one who's not older than him is Murmina.
- Strong Family Resemblance: Taken Up to Eleven. He basically looks just like Leo except with different-colored hair and eyes (and wings, if you so choose).
- Took a Third Option: In the True Ending, Dyshana points out three things that he can do when they reach the final pillar: Get sealed so that the darkness gets pushed back, fight off the forces of darkness for a very long time, or Unseal the gods and beat the crap out of 'em, even if it means that the whole world gets destroyed. No points for guessing which option he picked.
- Unwanted Harem: He out harems his ancestors, to the point that this one is weaponized as a Combination Attack with Rex, Beatrice, Qua, Murmina, Reverie, and Plum with all of their EX2 attack.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: Played with. Rex certainly has high hopes for the world and always believes in the better nature of people (just ask Vashtor), but he has some levels of self-awareness, acknowledging that life isn't always as idealistic as he'd like.
- Winged Humanoid: If you let Duran marry Silvi.
- Yin-Yang Bomb: His final EX Skill.
A woman who has sailed from the different parts of the continent thanks to her eye patch. She is the granddaughter of Alberti only if you save Nastassja.
- Bathtub Bonding: With the rest of the women in the group.
- Dual Wielding: Swords or daggers, whatever she's equipped with she'll have two of it.
- Eyepatch of Power: She's not blind however.
- Hero-Worshipper: Of Thoma and the rest of the Raglen family.
- Luminescent Blush: Cannot talk to Rex because of the fact that she admires Thoma, his grandfather, and legends of the Raglen family are famous throughout the continents.
- When she finally meets with Thoma in the extended version, she blushes like crazy.
- Red Baron: Death Carrier (just like her grandfather)
- Romantic Two-Girl Friendship / Heterosexual Life-Partners With Murmina. Let's see here; they're both aware of Rex's power but are also certain that he is not why they're able to trust each other enough to tell each other anything, and she's willing to consistently trust Beatrice with the task of helping keep her wings clean which is effectively showing that she trusts Beatrice with her life.
The sole survivor of the harpuia race in Aegisthus. She is out for revenge on the one who killed her family led by Vashtor.
Depending on your actions, you could save her, or she dies from exhaustion and from injuries.
- Berserker Tears: If Rex tries to stop her from killing Vashtor, she starts screaming and crying at him.
- Character Development: If Vashtor lives, she'll come to realize that it's wrong to hurt others for revenge and even admits that she may someday be able to forgive him. Also, she'll grow able to rely on her comrades more and even forms friendships, whether she goes through with her revenge or not.
- Ineffectual Loner: A downplayed version; she remains aloof from most of the group at first and insists on handling things on her own. Only by slowly opening up to them does she start gaining strength and undergoing Character Development.
- Last of Her Kind: Even if Rex has Harpuia blood, he's still of a different species of Harpuia.
- Never Be Hurt Again: Implied as to why she keeps her distance from the group.
- The Quiet One: Certainly gives the impression, since she doesn't talk much and when she does, much of her speech has ellipses in it.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Rex can talk her out of it.
- Romantic Two-Girl Friendship / Heterosexual Life-Partners With Beatrice. Let's see here; They're both aware of Rex's power but are also certain that he is not why they're able to trust each other enough to tell each other anything, and she's willing to consistently trust Beatrice with the task of helping keep her wings clean which is effectively showing that she trusts Beatrice with her life.
- Sadistic Choice: Rex can force one on her—shoot through and kill the man who saved her life and whom she has feelings for to kill the man who murdered her people, or stand down and let the killer walk free? She chooses the latter.
- The Stoic
- Not So Stoic: Has a complete breakdown if Rex tries to stop her from killing Vashtor. Also, her ending is made of heartwarming.
- Undying Loyalty: To Rex, even if he denies her her revenge.
- When She Smiles: Hnnnnngh.
- Winged Humanoid: Like all Harpuia
NPC Of The First Generation
The current head of House Klavis and King Hertzfeldt's second in command. He has quite the history with Leonhardt and proves to be the biggest thorn in the party's side throughout the first generation.
- All Love Is Unrequited: Loves Elaine, who loves Leonhardt, who, depending on what choices you make, loves someone else as well.
- Anti-Hero: A very dark type IV. He does whatever his king tells him to do, as he believes he knows best, but this means he will do absolutely anything regardless of how evil it may be.
- Aristocrats Are Evil: Manages to narrowly avert this, but comes close enough to count.
- The Atoner: Surprisingly averted. He shows no remorse for the terrible things he did while Herztfeldt was brainwashed and says that he’d do it again so long as his king demanded it. This pisses more than a few people off.
- Betty and Veronica: The Veronica to Leonhardt’s Betty for Elaine.
- The Chessmaster: Manages to manipulate Braham and Largen, though slightly less effectively. He’s still an Unwitting Pawn in the end though.
- Climax Boss: Alongside Herztfeldt near the very end of the first generation.
- Deadpan Snarker: Of the obnoxiously Jerkass variety.
- Draco in Leather Pants: In universe his heinous actions are overlooked in favor of his charisma and skill with military management.
- The Dragon: Reports directly to Herztfeldt and is the party’s direct opposition. He’s also technically this to the Dark Knight.
- Evil Counterpart: To Leonhardt: Compare their similar designs and back stories, to the point where Melchior is basically a clone of Leonhardt in battle. Despite these similarities, Leonhardt is compassionate enough to betray his country for the sake of the weak; while Melchior follows his country without question regardless of the cruel things it forces him to do.
- Hate Sink: Since he is the villain with the most screen time and the Dark Knight gets very little characterization, it’s very easy to hate him more than every other villain in the first generation..
- Jerkass: A truly magnificent example, verging on Complete Monster were it not for a few Pet The Dog moments here and there. He drops it by the second game at least.
- Karma Houdini: Kills a lot of syrium, follows his evil king, lets the Dark Knight kill Leo, and he gets away with pretty much just being there.
- Lawful Stupid: Follows his king’s orders no matter how Obviously Evil they are without question.
- Manipulative Bastard: Plays Braham like a fiddle and manipulates Largen so that he’s in a position where he’s incapable of defecting. He also has Leonhardt do some of his dirty work for him.
- Unwitting Pawn: Loves having a few on hand at all times. Turns out he’s one to the Dark Knight, and was likely on his way to becoming a mindless Elite Mook were it not for Leonhardt’s intervention.
- Villain with Good Publicity: While he does have his detractors, Melchior’s charisma is key to Gridamas maintaining national power.
- My Country, Right or Wrong: Fights against Leonhardt and the rest of the group a few times because of this, despite his misgivings about the country's sudden aggressiveness.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Neither power-hungry nor violent, and keeps a level head no matter the state of affairs.
- Blood Knight: What he becomes after an artifact that makes him the following trope.
- Cutscene Incompetence: A rare villainous example; he's no slouch in a fight (and pretty tough to overkill without time and decent weapons), but outside of that he's only really good at running away.
- Stay in the Kitchen: One of his comments to Elaine implies this.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: With Largen. While the first two bossfights in the game may have been a minor step above randoms, he and Largen will put the hurt on your party with their sizeable AP, high offense, and link attack use; quickly establishing the rule to be followed that boss battles in this game aren't about if party members get killed, as much as how many die, and how often they do.
NPC Of The Second Generation
NPC Of The Third Generation
NPC Of The Fourth Generation
- Leeroy Jenkins: Very nearly attacked the entire party when he learned Silvi was leaving, and was only stopped by everyone pointing out that he didn't have a prayer of winning.
- Winged Humanoid Like all Harpuia
- Unlucky Childhood Friend: The fact that Silvi can potentially marry Duran (and that he dies no matter what) makes him this.
- Yandere: As soon as he figures out that Silvi loves Duran, he goes from trying to make her his to trying to kill them both.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair
NPC Of The Fifth Generation
- What Happened to the Mouse?: It's left unsaid exactly happened to him after you defeated Summerill in the end. Granted, it's not even important due to the fact that in the True Ending, Chaos and the gods got killed, the entire world died and got reborn.
Forces Of Darkness
The Big Bad
of the game itself and the Final Boss
of the fifth generation. He's the reason why the darkness is spreading throughout the continent.
- Disc One Final Boss: He's the final boss for some endings, but for others there's much more after him.
- Smug Snake: For all the hype that we finally get to kick the ass of the guy who started this, he just becomes smug about it when he loses.
- The Starscream: He reveals to the party on what he would do after reclaiming his Bracelet from Winfield: to become the god of Agarest by kicking out Chaos and the rest of the gods.
- Your Princess Is in Another Castle: So you finally defeated this guy who started this mess. Does this mean that the game is finally over and the party can finally rest? Nope, Dyshana then explains the true purpose of the pillars and what they actually do. And guess what? Summerill was apparently just in Dyshana's way.
The Dark Knight
This is the guy who curb stomped Leo
while he makes Ellis flee the scene. For his other tropes, see Vashtor.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the highest ranked among the Gurgs themselves. Yes, Vashtor is up there with Summerill in terms of authority.
These are the other Dark Knights that are roaming around the other continents to spread the darkness. Originally, there were twelve of them, but six got killed off before the game starts.
- And I Must Scream: Part of their Brainwashed and Crazy, also Zero establishes that the Oathsworn simply seals them away.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Try being that way for thousands of years.
- Dark Is Evil: Regardless of how they looked before becoming Gurg, once they changed they become encased in their demonic looking black armor.
- Made of Temptation: Their modus operandi to the other countries so that they would give in to the darkness. They in turn get tempted by Summerill.
- Wolfpack Boss: So, you're used to fighting two at the same time. Let's see if you can handle fighting four at the same time (thankfully, this only happens once in the game.)
The Six Gods Of Darkness
These gods are the true final bosses of the game provided that you have reached the True Ending.
While they were alluded in the prologue itself, they're more of a Giant Space Flea from Nowhere
. At first.
One of the six gods of darkness, though he regrets it deeply. He at first was at the side of light, until Mobius tempted him to the dark side. He wants to go back to the light, but he can't because of his loyalty to the dark.
The god of space and time, he is also responsible for the war of the gods thousands of years ago. He did this to kick out both Lenion and Chaos so he could become the ruler. If anything, every single conflict of the gods can be traced back to him. He is sealed in Graccea.
- Smug Snake: Guy certainly has a high opinion of himself.
- This Cannot Be!: He didn't believe it was possible for mortals to defeat him.
One of the six gods/goddesses that were sealed, she represents Fortune. She can appear to other people either as a man, or as a woman and just so happens to encounter Dyshana who is one-half of Chaos
. Sealed at Fendias.
- It Amused Me: If the reason for something she's done isn't progress, it's this.
- Single-Target Sexuality: With Chaos and Dyshana. She even says to Dyshana that s/he'll eat her and play with her.
The goddess of revenge. Ironically enough, she is the most composed out of all the gods and the only reason why she even sided with the dark was just to balance things out. She is sealed in Enhambre
The god of battle. He seeks to have more battles just so that progress can be made. He is sealed in Aegisthus.
The lord of the dark night, and the god of destruction and rebirth. He initially fought against Lenion due to the fact that Lenion married the girl of his dreams and that Mobius was pushing for it. He gets to be special in that he's sealed in the Boundary Plane.
In Agarest Senki 2
, Weiss kills him as a Cutscene Boss
in the opening. Or Does He?
- Star-Crossed Lovers: With Varna when Lenion marries her. One of the last few straws before the whole war of the gods started.
Characters from Agarest Senki Zero :
Characters debuting in Generation 1
- Abusive Parents: Shockingly enough he's one to Leonis, who has a crippling inferiority complex due to the insurmountable achievements his father left before him and acts surprisingly coldly towards him once they finally reunite. He still cares about him, but his a huge dick by Agarest protagonist standards.
- The Ace: He's a human in his mid-twenties who is an incredibly high-ranking member of a army made almost entirely of demi-gods, unites several warring races and gets three women to fall in love with him. Like Leonhardt, he leaves an impossibly massive legacy for Leonis to live up to.
- Adorkable: His love for giving long-winded speeeches, easily flustered nature at the hot springs, and generally focused and enthusiastic attitude definitely make him this.
- Badass: He's considered on par with Larva in terms of fighting ability. Vashtor calls him his equal in swordplay. Badass.
- Character Customization: More so than any other character. Shortly after dying in the prologue, Sieg is revived and you then pick from three class types, Warrior Battle Mage, and Sorcerer, then you pick 5 of 24 cards to determine your stats and Weapon of Choice. While you'd think this would be easy to figure out, it's not. Finally you get to pick his skill slots, half you get right from the start, half when you promote him.
- Chaste Hero: Slightly less so than Ladius, but not by much.
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Sieghart is far more focused on combat to understand anything else, much to Eugene's frustration.
- Comically Missing the Point: Like Leonhardt, Sieghart's reaction to hearing about the hot springs is to boil eggs.
- The Comically Serious: Remains completely straight-laced during even the most hilarious moments.
- Dual Wielding: Doesn't happen with all weapon types though
- Embarrassing Nickname: Ziggy. Has no problem with Mimel calling him Zeeg though.
- Expy: He's very similar to Ladius, right down to being Oblivious to Love and ridiculously chaste.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Eugene and Vashtor.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Generally only shows the "heart of gold" bit, but once he and Leonis finally meet he's shockingly cold and disdainful towards him. This comes from his desire for Leonis to leave the battlefield to stay safe, which is eventually removed after he proves himself.
- Master Swordsman: Even if you don't have him using swords, he's said to be this.
- Oblivious to Love: While not as bad as Ladius, Sieghart is certainly not good at picking up signals.
- Official Couple: The game pushes Linda together with him far more so than any other love interest in any other game.
- The Kirk: With a heavy leaning towards logic.
- Composite Character: She's a mix of Elaine and Valeria personality-wise.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: While she's always extremely loyal to Sieghart, she shows anger towards most of the rest of the group due to seeing them as unfit for battle due to being untrained. She comes around to them over time.
- Godzilla Threshold: Once she meets back up with the group, she's devastated that Sieghart has attracted a harem. There's no way she can compete. The solution? Ask Eugene how to get Sieghart to notice her.
- He Is Not My Boyfriend: The first time this comes up, you can either agree or just ignore the accusation.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's cold, stern and task oriented, but has a caring soul underneath it all.
- Running Gag: During her attempts to put advice given to her to use, she eventually breaks down and just charges at Sieghart, or does so in response to one of your choices. This usually results in him dodging on reflex and sending her screaming over a cliff.
- Senseless Sacrifice: There really wasn't much of a reason for the sacrifice. Aside from Ernesto being a manipulative evil bastard.
- Tsundere: Type B. Oddly, it's Eugene that brings out her more aggressive behavior, not Sieghart.
- Accidental Pervert / Innocent Fanservice Girl: Mimel asks to take a bath with Sieghart to play "Clean Everything" and "Tender, Soapy Embrace". He suspected she actually picked this up from Eugene, turns out it was Sayane who had been heard saying things like that.
- Buffy Speak: Is prone to these due to her attempts to make use of any word she learns. At worst this tends to border on being a Malaproper.
- Expy to Ellis. Starting with the name and going from there we've got a pink haired Elf with a monstrous bodyguard that fights with staffs. She even has the same Extended Area and game breaking EX Skill that Ellis had.
- Ms. Exposition: Toward the start of the second generation she'll explain each character's role in raising Leonis, to Leonis.
- Our Elves Are Different: She is a High Elf, one of the five elven races and considered the most powerful.
- Team Mom: During the second generation she takes on this role in the group.
- Brilliant but Lazy: Acknowledged in universe by both Sieghart AND VASHTOR to have the potential to be just as accomplished as they are, but lacks the drive to do so. He proves them right time and time again.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to both Sieghart and Vashtor's blue.
- Shipper on Deck: Wants Friedelinde to end up with Sieghart and is willing to legitimately help her out when asked.
- Sidetracked By The Missed Point: Like with Leonhardt & Winfield, Eugene finds himself sidetracked when Sieghart talks about boiling eggs in a hot spring. He quickly catches himself doing this and gets back to the matter at hand.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: With practically everyone who isn't Sieghat, most notably Linda, Vashtor, Cal-Vina and Alice.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Gets called out by the party about his emotional abuse toward Niel more than a couple times. Especially treating Leonis as more of a son than his own.
Tetora /Lemona Hoch
- Bandage Babe: She's this for a good portion of the second generation. She goes back to the look in the the post-game, simply because she feels it looks nice.
- Big Eater: Apparently has something to do with being a mage. She eats enough that after Eugene had first offered to buy her dinner, every time food is discussed around Tetora it horrifies him.
- Cat Girl: She's a feline type Neocolom.
- Happily Adopted: By Apli and Thrisasaz
- Lunacy: Like Sherufanir a full moon makes her excessively energetic. Incidentally this shows it was due to being a Neocolom.
- Yum Yum: Takes a "Banana Bath" with Mimel.
- Gameplay and Story Segregation: See Improbable Weapon User
- Improbable Weapon User: Breakers, generally circular blades on chains. Why anyone let a man who'll "Peel his hand when asked to peel an apple" use one of these is a mystery.
- Lethal Joke Character: In the first game Breaker using chracters were almost unusable due to a poor combination of stats and skill slots, as well as the weapons themselves not usually having skill slots that would compliment their own stats nor the setup of the character they were statistically good for. Cal-Vina does not have this problem, or at least not as much, to the point where he comes with the Double Needle combo skill and later on gains access to several passive abilities that ramp up any and potentially all of his stats and his ultimate EX Skill will actually destroy your enemies' SP, making it harder for them to use their own.
- Magic Is a Monster Magnet: Onerthes' third eyes, and the ability to see the future in general, tends to attract demons.
- Weak, but Skilled: Compared to other Onerthes his ability to see the future is almost non-existant. However when he does see something it's typically incredibly accurate and important.
- Our Gods Are Different: Rem Lorient can eventually become Larvae, though it is incredibly rare. Apli hopes to make this transformation.
- Shout-Out: A few numbers off but Forever 24?
- One of her alternate outfits has her fit in more in a Console War than Agarest War.
- Token Mini-Moe: Lampshaded. Eugene and Niel figure it would be best not to be checking her out, as it could land them in serious trouble.
- Try to Fit THAT on a Business Card! combined with a bit of Badass Boast
Apli: "I am Apli April, of the Rem Lorient. I am servent to none; a wandering lotus flower born in moonlight. I am pleased to make your acquaintance."
Tetora: "Goodness me, it's been rather long since I've heard the whole thing."
Characters debuting in Generation 2
- Dual Wielding: Like Seighart he dualwields a good number of his potential weapon types.
- Heroic Sacrifice: In the Normal Ending. He and Mimel give their lives to contain the blast from Mila.
- Identical Friend: Blonde!Leonis is mentioned as being able to pass as Niel's twin.
- Like Brother and Sister with Mimel. Or not. Your call.
- Likes Older Women: All of his potential love interests are older than he is.
"If you are about to eat a meal, you might say a prayer or somesuch, yes? But you would not say you were sorry. Well, I think this is much the same. Instead of apologizing to your meal, would it not be better to thank it? Better from the eater's point of view, of course, not necessarily the meal's. So from now on, instead of apologizing... I think it better for you to begin giving thanks instead. Um...That is what I was getting at, at least. Things may have gotten a little...confusing."
- Red String of Fate: Mentioned in the Normal Ending.
- Together in Death: Does this in the Normal Ending with Mimel
- Wife Husbandry: Gender Flipped. As with Rex, almost all of his love interests had a hand in raising him.
- Our Dwarves Are All the Same: Downplayed. While male Greer tend to fall in line with the usual images of a dwarf, Dana pretty much just has the Blacksmith thing going for her.
- Skunk Stripe: While most of her hair is red, she has a blonde streak in it.
- Stripperiffic: Rivals Fyuria for most exposed protagonist in the series.
- Badass Boast
"I crush with mighty blows the chains of grim fate! I shatter with quick strikes vile conspiracies! The wandering gunman, Niel L. Lagrange, has arrived! You have been surrounded! There can be no escape for you! But I am no demon! Withdraw peacefully, and you may keep your lives! Retreat, or perish! The choice is yours!"
- Big Damn Hero: His Badass Boast was delivered after sending down a Rain of Bullets and then flying in from out of nowhere to stop a trio of Garvel from finishing off the rest of the group. Everyone is impressed that he pulled this off, even Eugene.
- Butt Monkey: He's constantly teased for how short he is, his dad treats him like crap a little over half the time, he was traumatized by Hass Calinou as a child, and then the post-game takes it to extremes such as having Routier tell him that his scenes were honestly not that great to begin with, that he should probably just roll with the mistake he made on his line to get some fans, and maybe have just changed his character entirely to a Reckless Sidekick that always almost ends up dead, but always come back just in time to take a bullet for Leonis to renew his Heroic Resolve. That last bit leaves him seriously considering killing Routier.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: He gets refered to as being rather girly. Not that it's obvious.
- Identical Friend: Blonde!Leonis is mentioned as being able to pass as his twin.
- The Napoleon: He tends to get upset over his height being mentioned.
- Put on a Bus: You can choose to do this to him. This is required for the true ending.
- Schizo Tech: Putting aside the use of guns for a moment, watch him move. The man has Rocket Boots!
NPC Of The First Generation
NPC Of The Second Generation
- Eat the Dog: Shernini offers to cook him on a few occasions. He is not amused. After being given the Goliath Serum he tries to eat her.
- Refuge in Audacity: The only reason he, and by extension, the party survived their encounter with Giganda was because he attacked long enough for Niel to blind him and run. Giganda was not amused that he actually fell for it.
- The Ghost: You never see her, but she's mentioned repeatedly. Oddly, her name doesn't come up until the post-game though.
- Happily Married: To Eugene
- Red Baron: Witch of the Sand and Steam-Wreathed Assassin
- What, Exactly, Is Her Job?: After hearing what she's been known as, Sieghart would really like to know.
Forces Of Darkness
- Flash Step: He doesn't really move all that fast in game, but his moving animation displays this.
Universal Dark Knight Tropes
Dark Knight Vashtor
Dark Knight Giganda
Dark Knight Arzest
- Was Once a Man: Not him, his creations. He reveals the source of the Garvel to be Elves and High Elves.
Gods of Darkness
Characters from Agarest Senki 2 :
Characters debuting in Generation 1

A man who ventures into the tower along with an archaeologist named Fasti. He kills a god but unfortunately, gets the whole world into trouble so he must sacrifice his life along with three women to revive the god as penance.
- A Taste of Power: He's level 99 when you fight off against Summerill in the beginning. Or to be exact, Real!Weiss is.
- The Atoner: For all the lives he took away at Zaint Luke.
- Badass: Defeats a guy who has a Sinister Scythe as a weapon riding on a frigging black dragon! Said guy is the Final Boss of the game! (if you do not take into account the route split)
- Blade Across The Shoulder: Or any weapon really, but the blade definitely applies at the beginning of the game.
- Brother-Sister Incest: With Leina. It doesn't end well for the both of them.
- Character Customization
- Cool Sword: Veldafard.
- Cursed with Awesome: There is only one way for him to die. Eva speculates that not even being literally torn apart would kill him, but isn't willing to risk finding out for sure.
- Dead All Along: Real!Weiss never got to kill Chaos, and he got back stabbed by Faz.
- Death Seeker: After being told nothing will be able to kill him, he repeatedly acts in ways specifically to test this. He's tried Taking the Bullet and provoking Felenne, among other things. None of it worked.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: A Deconstruction of sorts. Turns out he didn't after all.
- Et Tu, Brute?: Was back stabbed by Fasti who is really Mobius.
- Implacable Man: Hit him with any fatal wound and he'll survive it, story wise. He should be, he's a god.
- Laser Blade: He can turn his knife into a light saber!
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Doesn't know that he killed Chaos. Turns out he didn't.
- Only the Chosen May Wield: How he gets his Cool Sword.

- Master Swordsman: Real!Weiss at least is one.
- Sword Pointing: Does this to Chaos in the beginning of the game. And by him, we mean Real!Weiss.
- Quest for Identity
- The Stoic: When he's with the party, but curiously he's pretty hot blooded in the prologue. This is because the Weiss you control the entire game is Chaos, while the Weiss you controlled in the prologue has been Dead All Along.
- Tomato in the Mirror: The Weiss you've been controlling throughout the entire first generation, and his descendants, are all reincarnations of Chaos. The Weiss you controlled at the beginning of the game? Killed by Back Stab courtesy of Faz.

A woman who appears to Weiss and tells him that he has killed a god and must atone for his sins.

- Bash Brothers: With Jude
- Berserk Button: Quite a few. Notably, anyone bringing up Weiss and anyone just accepting what they're told is fate set him off quite often.
- Brutal Honesty / Blatant Lies: He'll go for whichever is most likely to piss people off, leaving many things he says open to interpretation.
- Byronic Hero: He shows this off almost immediately. In his own words he's only in it for the "whores", the world means nothing to him and that he'd turn on Eva, and that he really does enjoy the thought of doing exactly that, if only it would actually solve anything.
- Cluster F-Bomb: The MOST foul-mouthed protagonist of the entire Agarest series.
- Yuri Fan: He's pretty sure that Vanessa got Yumil alone to "comfort" her. Considering his typical behavior over his regret for them being forced to be with him and get sacrificed, it's difficult to tell if he was serious or not.
The son of Jainus and Chloe and Schwarz's best friend. He is a half dark elf and half human and dark elves are usually discriminated in society. Despite the fact however, Jude doesn't even care about it.
- What the Hell, Hero?: In the True End route, he calls out Jainus on why he had to sacrifice his life and thus leaving him and Chloe behind.
A young elf who accompanies the party at the behest of their leader in Enhambre. He at first despises all dark elves for having dark powers and is quite rude to everyone, including the party. He then mellows out after meeting with Cynthia, a woman who migrated to Flensberge.

One of the three heroines of the second generation. She's a bounty hunter who's looking for the monster that killed her little brother. At first, she and Schwarz would always quarrel whenever they see each other, but as time goes on, she develops feelings for him.
- I Never Said It Was Poison: When the group is trying to find out where the Lishius hid the Rainbow Shards, she openly states that her parents were once part of that clan and that the Thermidor Temple is considered sacred ground to them. Once Ignis goes berserk for her mentioning that location, she and Schwarz thank him for informing them of where it was hidden.
- Joke Weapon: Do not equip her with any weapons and she uses water guns.
- More Dakka: Her Finishing Strike Zillion Shot alongside Jainus and Jude.
- Rain of Arrows: More like Rain of bullets when Vanessa does her second Original Skill.

The third generation protagonist. He's continuing to investigate as to who Weiss is and is trying to go to the Zendrook Pillar to find answers.
Depending on who you married, he can either have a black longcoat, a violet longcoat with a different hair style, or a white longcoat with wings.
- Above the Influence: When Jainus slips him and either Mervina, Liel, or Sophia an aphrodisiac the only notable effect is that he feels drawn to go find them. Once he does and they try in varying levels of directness to get into his pants, his only reaction is to assume they're sick and to go get Fiona.
- Badass Longcoat
- Expy: To Ladius
- Grand Theft Me: Gets one courtesy of Chaos awakening from him.
- The Hero Dies: If you get the Bad Ending.
- Ill Boy: Since the "vessel" is almost full, and since a mortal body can't contain a god's power, Grey is often wracked by sickness.
- Likes Older Women: Barring Lieselotte, almost every women in the party who can be paired off with Grey is older than him.
- Oblivious to Love: Fiona spends some time staring intently at his face and openly admits to using some of Jainus' pickup lines on him. He wants to know why she's doing any of that.
- Real Men Wear Pink: He doesn't like being reminded about it, but he's good at sewing. All of his color schemes also include either a bright purple or a dark fuchsia somewhere on his coat.
- The Stoic: You can count on one hand the number of times Grey smiles or otherwise expresses emotion.
- Winged Humanoid: If you chose Yumil.
- Workaholic: Grey is determined to finish Weiss's duty in his lifetime, often spurning rest or relaxation as a result.

A woman sent by Enhambre's leader to join Gray's party. She then meets with her older brother Ignis who has a kid.

- Costume Porn
- Fighting Your Friend: And one of the most irritating bosses in the game as it comes at a time you may end up being out of several of your main team.
- Loved I Not Honour More: Non-romantic version. No matter how much she cares about Grey and their friends, she won't stand by and let them revive Summerill; her duty as a guardian designates that she stop them, and she will.
- Mind Rape: Her form of healing magic is described as being this and a few of the characters, her brother included, are suspicious of her intentions for Grey because of it.
- Silk Hiding Steel: The nicest, politest girl in this generation, with the will to fight a god and his friends alone underneath.
An old man who Schwarz encounters in the mountains. He then challenges Schwarz to a duel to see who was stronger between the two. One generation later, he shows up again to challenge his rival only to find out that he's dead. He then joins Gray's party.
- Ambidextrous Sprite: His sprite can't seem to decide whether his scar on his eye is on his left or on his right.
- Badass: Oh hell yes he is! To put this into perspective, you only get CG pictures whether it's for Fanservice or for ending purposes. His ending CG? Him stabbing a monster on the head in the ground while holding a feather! And while other characters get to be together with another party member, he's solo.
- Badass Normal: Takes on a guy who is literally the amnesiac leader of the dark gods, and comes to a draw! He doesn't have access to magic, he doesn't have any artifacts on him, he doesn't have any powers coming from either a light god or a dark god and yet he can keep up with the party with no problems.
- Handicapped Badass: Has a scar on his eye and yet that doesn't stop him at all.
- Heartbroken Badass: His reason for his revenge and why he actually backed down when Vanessa swore that she wanted her revenge.

- The Big Guy: The largest playable character.
- Blood Knight: He fights for the sake of being challenged, and eventually dying.
- But Now I Must Go: Goes back to killing monsters in his CG ending.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: Has an S class in strength. He also has no artifacts nor Guardian blood to explain why he's so powerful, he simply is.
- Good Is Dumb: As soon as he joins your party, he doesn't have his way high HP when you last fought him in the 2nd generation.
- Implausible Fencing Powers: He's a big guy, he wields a BFS, he can cartwheel and he can cut down enemies, energy balls from guns, and the wind.
- Improbable Weapon User: If you unequip his weapon, he'll be using a lead pipe.
- Mighty Glacier: S rank on both strength and vit, yet is horribly slow and tends to drop easily against magic attacks. However, he compensates by having a high HP.
- One-Man Army: Already kills monsters when the party meets him for the first time and goes one versus four in his boss fight.
- Pipe Pain: Unequip his weapon and he'll be using a pipe as his Joke Weapon.
- 24-Hour Armor: Years go by and he still wears his armor when he meets Gray.
NPC Living in Frensberge
Tropes relating to all of them:
- Cuteness Proximity: While she is in the process of scolding Gordon for having his cat at the public bath, it meows at her once and she promptly decides that maybe she could let it slide because it's so cute.
- Half-Human Hybrid: She's part dog neocollom.
- Kemonomimi: A given since she's partially a dog neocollom.
- Mission Control: Is in charge of the guild and directs the party as to where the hunts are.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Gives Liel one of her concoctions that turns out to be an aphrodisiac. Said aphrodisiac is the Finish Strike of Eva, Sophia, and Liel.
- Expy To Shernini
- Mad Scientist: Recreates the dead heroes, creates a drink that's supposed to give the drinker horns and wings, is constantly trying to conduct experiments on everyone in town typically through the public baths, among many other things.
- Too Spicy for Yog Sothoth: She admits that the Syrium village is little different than an insane asylum at one point. Later on she points out that even among them she was considered eccentric and kicked out because of it.
- Lethal Chef: Though after his run in with Li Ra-Lua's cooking he starts to get better, only occasionally lapsing back toward this habit.
- Fantastic Racism: Is a dark elf and spent most of the second generation arguing about it with Ignis. By the third generation, they both mellow out.
- Homoerotic Subtext / Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: Has this going on in many of her scenes with Mervina. Mervina starts bringing her gifts, something she only ever expected from family. She makes tea specifically for Mervina a few times, something Chloe did for Jainus. And the two of them frequently induce blushing in each other in their discussions.
- Maiden Aunt: Never gets married at all.
- Red Oni: To Chloe's Blue even though Sena's got the blue hair.
The Five Guardian Leaders of Agarest
Tropes relating to all of them:
Leader of the Alister people and is also an elf, descendants of high elves.
- My Greatest Failure: Excommunicating Aina's mother made him question whether it's really worth it to keep the guardians isolated from the world.
Leader of the Gruut people living at Aegisthus.
Leader of the Yurle clan living at Aegisthus.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Thanks to the fact that he's so bent on upholding traditions, he pretty much messed up A LOT of things in generation 2.
NPC Of The First Generation
An archaeologist who traveled with Weiss in the prologue. He seeks to go back to Zendrook to find out whether the ruins are intact.
The end of his story? Not quite. He's actually Mobius in disguise and is responsible for everything that has happened in the game.
- Back Stab: How he killed Weiss.
- Dead All Along: In his discussion with Fiona, he mentions that his existence as Fastie was quite similar to Chaos as Weiss. He mentions earlier that his current body has begun to rot on him as well. Whatever happened to the real Fastie is never brought up.
- Four Eyes, Zero Soul: The glasses don't even do much for him. His profile states that it's just to help hide his damaged eye. And in this case there is quite literally Zero Soul there in addition to the trope's usual meaning, Fastie was dead well before the game, his body just little more than a suit for Mobius.
- Interface Spoiler: For a rather friendly yet timid character it's a little odd to see him with an incredibly smug expression in his portrait collection.
- The Load: Is always with your party but never actually fights battles. And that is a good thing for you.
- The Smart Guy: The group usually turns to him for explanations on where various things relating to artifacts and demons may be as he supposedly picked up such information on the job.
A man under the service of the royal family of Aegisthus. He has been suspected that he was in cahoots with the dark forces only to save the party by coming in with reinforcements. Thanks to his actions, he becomes king of the Aegisthus region.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Come the next two generations he's shown to be an incredibly reasonable king.
- Red Herring: He has a battle sprite just like everyone else in the party. However, he will not join you.
- Also the part where everything about him seems treacherous. Subverted that he's definitely on your side. He even becomes king as a result.
- The Plan: He has some of his men go to the bandits and side with the orcs and goblins to fool the garvel. It definitely works.
The king of Signihardt Castle in the first generation and Victoria's father.
NPC Of The Second Generation
A syrium residing in the Graccea region and also assists the leader of the tower. He first appears in the first generation lending a hand to the party members.
In the second generation, he has the party gather materials for him to save Rasta from his death. In truth, he is secretly trying to revive Summerill.
- And Then Rasta Was A Demon: In a very similar case to the Larva of Zero, Rasta got turned into a knight-looking thing by an evil Artifact. That it was named for Mobius should've been a hint.
- Brother-Sister Incest: With Yumil. It doesn't end well for him.
NPC Of The Third Generation
Forces Of Darkness
- Duel Boss: Your very first fight in Agarest 2 is a one on one with Weiss and Summerill.
- Villain Decay: He's a Final Boss in the first game, here he's a tutorial boss fight. Oh how the mighty have fallen.
Six Gods of Darkness
The true form of Fastie
. He is the god of space and time and is the reason why everything happened in the game in the first place.
- Big Bad Friend: He set up everything that went on to further his goals.
- Body Surf: He does this quite a few times. He spent most of the game inside Fastie's dead body.
- Casting Gag: Voiced by Yuuki Tai who voiced Cobray Gordon. That's all that needs to be said.
- Evil Plan: For starters the very reason the false Agarest exists is because he pulled the strings to cause three wars between the gods, with the last one being a defeat just because Chaos allowed Lenion to seal him. Then, once sealed, managed to get a way to break his own seal and create an artificial body, then he went to Zaint Luke and convinced a grieving Weiss to get revenge of the Gods. His plan was to seal Chaos inside Weiss, but that didn't work, since his power was too great for that, and he exploded, causing the Day of Light. Then he created a new body for Weiss, and put the both of them inside the new body, ensuring Chaos would remain amnesiac and unable to act against him. And for kicks he used Eva, a doll at Chaos service to make sure Weiss would do as commanded and she would regain his power for him. His plan works perfectly in the bad ending, with him regaining his body and getting all of chaos power, but in the True Route his plans continue, because he expected the team's actions, faking his death to try a Grand Theft Me with Chaos.
