    open/close all folders 


Rakios is the name of the kingdom where Yuuto and Kaori landed. It is the northernmost country in the world of Phantasmorgia and holds an alliance with two of the other four small countries that make up the northern area. The king is highly aggressive and has ambitions to conquer the world.

Takamine Yuuto

Yuuto is the protagonist of Eien no Aselia. He is an average student who is rather stubborn and quite hot headed. He's also rather popular with girls, but fails to notice. At the beginning of the story, he is dragged from his world to the land of Phantasmorgia in order to fulfill a Deal with the Devil he made to save his sister's life. He is quickly turned into a slave soldier and forced to fight in order to protect Kaori. Due to his status as an extremely powerful Etranger, he is quickly put in charge of the Rakios military. He wields the rank four Eternity Sword Desire.

  • A Real Man Is a Killer: Averted; Yuuto makes it a point to never grow accustomed to killing spirits. Kaori is also initially horrified to learn he's become a soldier for her sake.
  • Awesome but Impractical: Eternal skills generally do an absolutely immense amount of damage, but have either low amounts of uses or have an incredibly low Mind range, limiting their real effectiveness. They're also pretty taxing on Mind, so even at the max you can only use the attacks about twice before falling out of it.
  • Badass
  • Bishōnen: Yuuto is easily the prettiest male in the game, though still not quite girly with the muscles he has to develop.
  • Brother-Sister Incest: Kouin calls Yuuto a siscon for how protective he is of Kaori, though in fact it's the other way around; Kaori loves him but she's firmly in the sister category and has no ending.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Yuuto has a moment in Aselia's route. While Desire is occupied with healing Aselia, Yuuto is forced to fight without the sword. As such, he uses a stick, fights around a dozen guards, managing to kill one and take his sword, then kills all of the rest of them. Afterwards, he survives fighting the spirits long enough so that Aselia is able to save his life.
  • Chick Magnet: Yuuto gains the love or at least deep respect of essentially every female character in the story and was quite popular at his old school. Not that he ever noticed. Kyouko and Kouin, on the other hand...
    • Actually, he's not so much a Clueless Chick Magnet as it is a case of Selective Obliviousness. In Orpha's route, it turns out he has a vague feeling about it, but doesn't think too much about it. When Orpha confirms that at least half the women he knows likes him in that way, it shocks him to say the least.
  • Childhood Friends: With Kyouko and Kouin, which can turn into a love triangle.
  • Deal with the Devil: The story begins because Yuuto made a deal with Desire so that if Desire saved Kaori, Yuuto would agree to wield him. The actual deal was apparently something more like 'You'll be my slave and do whatever I tell you' but Yuuto resists have it work like that.
  • Determinator: Yuuto
  • Doom Magnet: Yuuto thinks of himself as one, though it's unclear if he really is or not.
  • Fatal Flaw: Yuuto's would be impulsiveness and anger. More than once he nearly gets himself killed for it. Worse, he nearly kills Kaori when his rage and hatred grow too strong.
  • The Hero
  • I Choose to Stay: Works out a little oddly in the end, though.
  • Ineffectual Loner: Yuuto has serious problems accepting assistance but while competent at his job (raising Kaori or fighting) is not quite good enough to do it alone.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Yuuto's memory of contracting with Desire was wiped until it was time to fulfill it. And his memory is also later wiped by Tokimi after Desire is destroyed so that he thinks he won and the fight is over.
  • Lightning Bruiser
  • Never Learned to Read: He learns to speak the language of Phantasmorgia, though perhaps somewhat awkwardly. He never learns the language, though, since the writing looks like gibberish to him.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Early on, Yuuto slays the great dragon protector of Rakios. As it’s dying, it muses that the gate it protects is now unsupervised. The consequences of this don’t become obvious until the beginning of the fifth chapter. To be fair, the other gates around the world may have been unguarded as well: Reference to one dragon being slain twenty some years ago is made and the optional boss Gatekeeper Garion goes berserk and mindless during the later parts of the story. During the endgame, Youtia has to study dragon tissue samples to come up with an artificial replacement.
  • Not a Morning Person: Kyouko's preferred way of waking him up is grabbing him by the throat and shaking him.
  • Oblivious to Love: As many as four people can tell Yuuto they love him during a route while he was completely oblivious. Kouin on the other hand will instantly notice Helion's crush as well as Shiah and Nelie's attachment and Kyouko will be suspicious at all the girls calling him Yuuto-sama, though she tends to exaggerate.
  • Purposefully Overpowered: : At higher levels, he has the defense of your best green spirits, as many attacks as your black spirits, hits as hard as your blue spirits and has damaging magic attacks at least on par with your best red spirits. On top of that, he gets unique and flexible support skills. With Yuuto, the hardest thing to do with him is decide exactly what way you want him to be overpowered since like everyone else he only has three slots for attack, defense and support.
  • Sanity Slippage: There are early events about Yuuto's difficulty in suppressing his sword where he generally falls more and more under its control until he finally manages to be able to resist properly. There's also an 'evil' route in the original version where he falls under Desire's power.
  • Super Strength: As an Etranger, even without his sword he can easily overpower a normal human. So, obviously, he doesn't really fight any humans during the story. Not much point.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: At the end, Yuuto thinks to himself he could easily have ended up like Shun without friends. He also doubts Shun would have ever tried to hurt Kaori.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Yuuto upon getting Wisdom. If anyone becomes an Eternal as well, they count as well.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Yuuto tends to bulldoze through most of the game with sheer power until Uruka joins and starts teaching him actual technique.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Yuuto actually does realize that the situation is way too contrived to be mere chance, but is still helpless to act against it because his sister is still being held captive by his old school enemy. See Evil Plan.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Yuuto and Desire get along fairly well when Desire wasn't doing the whole 'try and make Yuuto my evil puppet' thing. He's even sad when Desire dies.
  • Worthy Opponent: To Takios and Uruka.

Aselia Bluespirit

Aselia is the primary heroine of Eien no Aselia, as you may have guessed from the title. She is very quiet and inexpressive, but hidden deep beneath this exterior is... a ditz. As a blue spirit, she is a very powerful and talented sword fighter, though she has a tendency to be too direct.

  • Action Girl
  • Anti-Magic: Ice Banisher, a blue support skill. You're going to need it if you don't want red spirits shredding you.
  • Babies Ever After: After her romance starts, she asks Yuuto if he thinks spirits can bear children and intends to try. It's not entirely clear. She does have his child, but that's after they both became a different kind of being. The resulting child is also sort of bizarre and unprecedented.
  • Badass
  • Defrosting Ice Queen
  • Emotionless Girl
  • First Girl Wins: Aselia is the first girl Yuuto meets when he’s transported to Phantasmagoria, though not the first girl he meets in the entire story. The other girls prior this were not actually options in the original version of the game or aren't options at all, like Kaori.
  • Heroic RROD: When a warp sends Yuuto and Aselia back to Earth for a brief period of time, she begins to break down physically.
  • Hidden Depths: Aselia is a highly talented artisan capable of making beautiful pendants.
  • Idiot Hair
  • Lethal Chef: She has a liiiittle too much confidence for someone who has never cooked before. She does start learning after her initial failure.
  • 24-Hour Armor
  • Worthy Opponent: To Uruka.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Aselia’s hair is noted as unnatural when she visits Earth.

Esperia Greenspirit

Esperia is the next heroine of Eien no Aselia and the first of the spirits that the reader gets to meet. She is very polite and reserved but appears to have some hidden traumas and self esteem issues. She is primarily a defense and support unit and excels at these tasks.

  • Badass
  • Broken Bird
  • Cool Big Sis: Esperia fits this role in-story, but out of it she doesn't seem to match the standard well.
  • Florence Nightingale Effect: Though as a multiple endings kind of thing it's not necessarily reciprocated. She is more or less the secondary heroine after Aselia, though.
  • Harmful to Minors
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Esperia doesn’t have a real specialization. She has good support abilities, though mostly inferior to Halion. She hits quite hard, but not as hard as someone like Aselia and can only keep it up for a short time thanks to the harsh mind requirements. She’s a good defender, but only against entirely physical attacks due to her extremely poor resist stat.
  • Love at First Sight: Initially she's not sure in what way.
  • The Medic: She's more of a defensive unit than a support one, though.
  • My Greatest Failure: Esperia being unable to protect Rask.
  • Romantic Runner-Up: Yuuto spends a lot of time early on interacting almost exclusively with Esperia and thinking about how pretty she is, but she isn’t the main love interest. Most of the other girls don’t have the same kind of clearly romantic feelings as Esperia does, either. Aselia, the one that mostly just confuses him, gets to be the first girl he meets and the one he canonically ends up with. Plus, her name is in the title, which is a pretty big hint.
  • What Beautiful Eyes: Yuuto is rather awkward around Esperia early on, especially when he notices her eyes. They’re a bright, dazzling green.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko

Oruphaliru Redspirit

Orpha is the last of the Rakios main spirits and the youngest. She is a fire spirit and has a lot of potential, but due to her age she tends to be rather fragile. She is very energetic and excitable and quickly decides that Yuuto is her papa. As a red spirit, she focuses almost entirely on magic and is terrible at both defense and direct attacks.

  • Ambiguous Innocence: Orpha has something of a sadistic streak due to being raised to believe that killing and violence are good things. She genuinely doesn't understand why Yuuto is disturbed.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Genki Girl: Very energetic and playful.
  • Glass Cannon: She hits very hard, but her health is only a fraction of your other party members and has tissue paper defense skills.
  • Idiot Hair
  • Really 700 Years Old: Orpha appears to be the blueprint for spirits and is at least ten thousand years old.
  • Squishy Wizard: Even by standards of red spirits Orpha is very fragile. It's not strange for Yuuto to have six times the amount of health she does plus infinitely better shields. When she becomes an Eternal, her health skyrockets, but her defenses still remain weak. However, they also reflect damage.
  • Third-Person Person
  • Token Mini-Moe: She looks like a little girl, though her age is pretty vague.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Orpha is rather sadistic early on, creeping out Yuuto immensely.


Lesteena is the princess of Rakios. While the king is very harsh and condescending, Lesteena appears very cold and dismissive, though it is clear from early on that this is mostly an act. She is the only heroine incapable of fighting. To vent her stress at her unfortunate role and duties, she occasionally escapes the castle and wanders around as the much more carefree Lemuria and seems shocked to realize that Yuuto doesn't realize it's her... before deciding to have some fun with it.

  • Amnesiac Lover: Lesteena can't become an Eternal at all, though Yuuto is genre savvy enough to not try reminding her since he can't stay in Phantasmorgia after he saves it so it's not a completely straight example. However, he 'accidentally' misses the gate out and plans to restart the relationship.
  • Beneath the Mask: Lesteena honestly doesn't know whether Lesteena or Lemuria is her real personality, but it's probably much closer to Lemuria. Unlike the wise, noble Queen Lesteena, Lemuria is a selfish genki girl with an obsession for yofwals, which are definitely not waffles at all, nope..
  • Blatant Lies: After the king is assassinated, Lesteena proclaims him to have been a man of peace who wouldn't want to see the world ruined by ambition. Considering Rakios just conquered four countries overnight, Yuuto isn't the only one somehow doubting the truth of her claims.
  • Hair Decorations
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: She doesn’t seem to really get why Yuuto has a problem with getting into a bath naked with her.
  • Jerkass Façade: Early on she pretends to be a cold, calculating bitch, but she actually takes personal responsibility for Kaori and keeps her safe and well treated.
  • Lethal Chef: Lesteena makes murder croquettes and a pepper and meat dish that might have been pretty good if she had prepared the peppers properly.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Lesteena doesn’t really have any friends or peers. When it gets too stressful, she sneaks out into town and acts like a dork to relax. When she meets Yuuto at one point, he unknowingly points out her sheltered idea of how a date works.
  • Maybe Ever After: Lesteena's route ends with Yuuto staying in Phantasmorgia to try and start up a relationship with Lesteena again. He does run into Lemuria but... all the original problems are still in the way of the relationship if not more. After all, they don't remember that he's the hero that saved the world anymore.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Lesteena's Lemuria persona was only supposed to fool people who didn't really know her in the first place, so when she runs across Yuuto while wearing it she's both astonished and later amused by the fact he couldn't see through it.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Lesteena may or may not do what Yuuto wants but she will always listen.
  • Self-Made Orphan: After the northern part of the continent is united under Rakios, the king shows no indication that his ambitions have been fulfilled yet even though the country is not ready for another war and his soldiers are not loyal to him. She gets herself prepared to do something about him. Soon, he turns up assassinated by Sargios, saving her the trouble. Officially, anyway, since the leader of the group isn't able to kill people, meaning Lesteena really might have done it and blamed them.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: She loves yofwals and stubbornly refuses to accept Yuuto calling them waffles.
  • The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask: It's obvious from early on that Lesteena is not happy about playing the ice queen role. So she vents by going out into town as 'Lemuria.'

Takamine Kaori

Kaori is Yuuto's little sister and harbors an obvious crush on him, though he never really notices. Despite her initially prominent role, she is quickly reduced to an objective and has little direct impact on the story.

  • Brother-Sister Incest: Kouin calls Yuuto a siscon for how protective he is of Kaori, though in fact it's the other way around; Kaori loves him but she's firmly in the sister category and has no ending.
  • Captivity Harmonica: It's a flute instead, but it's used exactly the same way.
  • Childhood Friends: With Kyouko and Kouin.
  • Distressed Damsel: Her role in the story is to give Yuuto a reason to actually do anything. First she's held prisoner by Rakios, then she's captured by Sargios.
  • Guest Star Party Member: She's available for the final battle of Tokimi's route, if you cleared all the other heroines first.
    • Joke Character: Her attacks use her Nice Hat to, or rather, her Nice Hat does the attacking for her.
    • Lethal Joke Character: Her attacks are funny, but they pack quite a punch, and her support skill always grants full health plus att bonus to the attacker of her unit. She's always fully leveled (caping the level of the difficulty you're playing) when you get her too.
    • Sanity Slippage: The one taking over her body to fight isn't 'Desire', as it says on her profile, but her Nice Hat instead.
  • Idiot Hair: But only when she's not wearing her hat.
  • Little Sister Heroine: She's of the devoted type. However, contrary to the expectations of the cast, the affections only go from her to Yuuto and she does not have a proper ending.
  • Living Macguffin: She can't really do anything, but the fight over her between Yuuto and Shun is another trigger for Phantasmorgia to be thrown into chaos.
  • Morality Pet: Your first hint that Lesteena is a lot nicer than she acts at first is that she's really nice to Kaori and tries to help her and Yuuto meet up as much as possible.
  • Nice Hat: Kaori's bunny hat. Yuuto thinks it's a little creepy.
  • Tragic Keepsake: After Yuuto becomes an Eternal, the only thing left that survived the rewriting of reality was the necklace that contained the last fragment of Desire, which Yuuto gave to Kaori before she returned to Earth.

Minor Spirits

In addition to the three primary spirits listed above, Rakios has a number of minor spirits that work as your general forces. There are three more blue spirits with Nelie, Shiah and Selia, two more red spirits with Himika and Nanaru, two more green spirits with Halion and Nimnthor and the two black spirits Faron and Helion.

  • Action Girl: Selia, Faron and Himika, for the most part. The others are decent fighters, but largely too young or spacy to really fit.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Occassionally, you can view scenes that focus on the secondary spirits and their interactions with the main characters, assuming they didn't die in any of the battles. It's also necessary to view those scenes in order to give them the highest rank.
  • Anti-Magic: Ice Banisher, a blue support skill. You're going to need it if you don't want red spirits shredding you.
  • Badass: They're all soldiers.
  • Buttmonkey: Helion's ditzy tendencies tend to leave her with little in the way of dignity.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Helion never really gets the nerve to admit her crush on Yuuto.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Halion is slow, spacy and doesn’t seem entirely there.
  • The Comically Serious: Nanaru is always deadpan and serious, but she doesn't always really get what's going on around her.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Helion is Rakios’ fastest spirit barring Uruka, but her attacks are weak and her defense is full of openings. She also doesn’t pay attention to anything but her own footwork and attacks, leaving her vulnerable to counterattacks as well as unable to open an opponent’s guard. All she does is try to blitz people with her speed. Fortunately, these are only serious weaknesses in duels, which are fairly rare. In actual gameplay, she's probably the bulkiest black spirit, though her attacks really are weak.
  • Crutch Character: Faron and Himika start off rather good, but don't scale well. The latter also stops getting new attacks far too early to be useful on higher difficulties.
  • Cool Big Sis: Halion seems to assume she's a caring big sister figure to everyone. Results are mixed: She's rather spacey.
  • The Ditz: Helion is rather flaky. Her idea of trying to improve Kyouko's cooking is to put a flower into the mouth of a fish head.
  • Emotionless Girl: Nanaru is a more literal take on it than most because she has too great an affinity with her sword and lacks much in the way of an ego at the beginning. She doesn't even recognize that she's sad that Yuuto will be leaving until it's spelled out for her.
  • Fragile Speedster: Offensively, black spirits specialize in large numbers of weak attacks to break through an enemy's defense. Helion in particular starts out with low health and defenses, though both increase enough to make her an okay tank with support. Faron starts surprisingly bulky, but her health scales poorly. Defensively, their greatest strength is that their higher level defensive skills reflect damage.
  • Genki Girl: Nelie. Shiah would be too except she's a little shy.
  • Glass Cannon: Red spirits specialize in high magical damage and tend to make for pretty poor defenders. Nanaru's magic hits almost as hard as Orpha's and is less demanding in its mind requirements. She's also much less squishy, though still not a good defender.
  • Killed Off for Real: If you lose a spirit in battle that is not a main character, they don't come back. Ever. Only in a new game + will they come back.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Himika uses fire enchanted weapons to fight as a melee character rather than the more traditional support role. She can do that as well, but only with single target spells.
  • Mask of Power: Faren lacks the confidence to fight without it.
  • The Medic: Halion
  • Quit Your Whining: Selia to Yuuto if Kyouko and Kouin are killed instead of recruited.
  • Shrinking Violet: Helion and Faren when she doesn't have her mask.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: Nelie and Shiah
  • The Stoic: Selia. That's what happens when Aselia is the only person you have to talk to!
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Selia is rather cool and stoic. It's not that she doesn't care, it's that she's not very well socialized thanks to growing up with Aselia.
  • Theme Naming: Some of the people in charge of naming spirits aren't very creative, such as Helion and Halion or Selia and Aselia.
  • Third-Person Person: Nelie and Shiah
  • Through His Stomach: Helion wants to be able to compete with Esperia in cooking. The ulterior motives are obvious. Unfortunately for her, she soon forgets her original goal and is simply happy to cook for the other spirits, who are quite willing to push some of their cooking duties off onto her.
  • Tsundere: Nimnthor.
  • What Is This Feeling?: Nanaru near the end has to have it spelled out for her that she's sad because what she's feeling doesn't match what Yuuto told her 'emotion' was like.


The Malorigan Republic is the second most powerful nation in the world of Phantasmorgia. Located in the Western deserts, it is the only republic form of government and is led by Quedgin, a former scientist. It is less hostile than Sargios and maintains itself through its natural desert based defenses and strong economy.


When Yuuto and Kaori were dragged to the world of Phantasmorgia, Kyouko and Kouin were swept up with them. Upon arriving, they are eventually found by a Malorigan scouting squad and taken back for questioning. When it is established that they are Etrangers, the pair are presented with a pair of swords. Kyouko picks up the sword Void, but is unable to overpower its will. She can be recruited as a fast and powerful unit, but has mediocre defensive capabilities.

  • Amnesiac Lover: Kyouko gets left behind when Yuuto goes to become an Eternal. Yuuto is genre savvy enough to not try reminding her so it's not a completely straight example. However, Kyouko has Wistful Amnesia and ends up following him.
  • Badass: Though fragile, she tends to be a very useful offensive unit.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Kyouko's mind has been devoured by Void.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Kouin and Kyouko actually started dating without every confessing. Kouin doesn't want to confess to Kyouko unless she picks him over Yuuto, and Kyouko doesn't want to confess because she would prefer Yuuto. They both do like each other but...
  • Childhood Friend Romance: She's caught in a love triangle between Kouin and Yuuto in her own route.
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: Kyouko actually can cook. It just looks horrible because she'd rather focus on taste than appearance.
  • Demonic Possession: Kyouko’s will isn’t as strong as Kouin or Yuuto’s to start with and then during a moment of weakness, Void devoured her mind. The only reason Void doesn’t go berserk is because it knows that Kouin and Karma are stronger.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: She tries to Dope Slap Yuuto like normal at one point and instead blasts him into a wall, knocks him unconscious and apparently nearly kills him.
  • Dying as Yourself: If you don't recruit Kyouko, Yuuto accidentally hits her in the blow that was only meant to destroy Void. She returns to normal, but is mortally wounded.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Kouin and Kyouko will make one after the first playthrough if you make the correct decisions.
  • I Choose to Stay: In chapter V she rejects the chance to go home, preferring to stay and fight the invading Eternals.
  • Lightning Bruiser: She functions similarly to a black spirit. Lots of attacks of moderate power with mediocre defenses and some damage reflection. However, she has higher stats, her physical attacks have the elemental attribute and she has different support skills, including an electric nova attack that deals absurd amounts of damage.
  • Love at First Sight: In Kyouko's route, she's forgotten Yuuto but still loves him, so when he appears before her again she's incredibly confused. Then when she becomes an Eternal as well, the same happens for Kouin!
  • Magic Knight: Kyouko has good magic and physical attacks, which are enhanced with an elemental attribute as well as hitting up to five times per turn. Her defenses are only so-so, however.
  • Mundane Utility: Kyouko uses her Etranger abilities in place of a hyperspace mallet. Though subverted when she accidentally nearly kills Yuuto and has to apologize, which probably led to a sex scene in the original version.
  • Optional Party Member: You can't recruit her on your first playthrough. To recruit her in later games you need a high enough Mind score that Yuuto can control Desire with enough precision to disable Kouin's Karma without destroying it or killing him.
  • Paper Fan of Doom
  • Shock and Awe: Void grants her electrical powers. At one point she tries her normal Dope Slap routine and blasts Yuuto across the room and knocks him unconscious, much to her dismay.
  • Tsundere


Like Kyouko, Kouin was also picked up by Malorigan. As an intelligent and rather crafty individual, he was able to work out a deal not only with Quedgin for prominent positions for himself and Kyouko, but also struck up a deal with his Eternity Sword Karma so that it and Void would work together to destroy the other two Eternity Swords first. Belying his appearance, he is actually a very calm, focused and strong willed individual, though he generally lacks charisma. If you successfully save Kouin, he turns into perhaps the most powerful defense and support unit in the game.

  • Badass
  • Bromantic Foil: Kouin, though if you can hear his internal monologue he's actually a great deal more intelligent, competent and able than Yuuto. He just lacks the charisma.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Kouin and Kyouko actually started dating without every confessing. Kouin doesn't want to confess to Kyouko unless she picks him over Yuuto, and Kyouko doesn't want to confess because she would prefer Yuuto. They both do like each other but...
  • Childhood Friends: With Kyouko, Kaori and Yuuto
  • Genre Savvy: Kouin knows that his willingness to kill spirits makes him a lot less sympathetic and heroic than the angsting Yuuto.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Kouin and Kyouko will make one after the first playthrough if you make the correct decisions.
  • I Choose to Stay: Like Kyouko, in chapter V he chooses to stay and defend Phantasmorgia.
  • Lolicon: But really, he truly loves Kyouko.
  • Mighty Glacier: Kouin is an amazing defensive unit, has good defensive support and some of the most powerful elemental attacks in the game... that he can only use once per fight, meaning he won't be getting any critical hits if the defender is still up.
  • Optional Party Member: You can't recruit him on your first playthrough. To recruit him in later games you need a high enough Mind score that Yuuto can control Desire with enough precision to disable Kouin's Karma without destroying it or killing him.
  • The Smart Guy


Quedgin is the president of Malorigan and a final scientist. He is a reasonable man, but is rather hard to get a grasp on. He is a former scientist, colleage and implied lover to Youtia. Unlike her genius, he is a largely average man, but he was able to figure out the plans of the Law Eternals and set up a plan by which either he destroys Phantasmorgia before they can recruit Shun or Yuuto becomes powerful enough to stop the plans of Temuorin on his own.

  • Screw Destiny: Quedgin believes that something is manipulating the world he lives in and would rather destroy the world than bend to their will. And he's actually correct, and this is not as extreme as it sounds.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Quedgin's plan actually was better than what would have happened if Yuuto hadn't become an Eternal.


Sargios is by far the most powerful country in the world and occupies the southwestern corner of the continent. Little is known about its emperor, but the country appears to nurse some sort of grudge against Rakios and frequently meddles in its affairs.

Akitsuki Shun

Shun is an enemy of Yuuto's from school. His rather unpleasant personality grated at Yuuto, especially considering his obsession with Kaori. He feels that Yuuto is the true villain here and demands that he stop interfering with Kaori. Naturally, he's the last of the Etrangers pulled to Phantasmorgia and wields the most powerful sword, Oath. Unfortunately for him, it has largely corrupted his thoughts and made him even more violent and obsessed than normal.

  • Badass: Enough so that Yuuto is the only one who seems to be able to match up against him.
  • Big Bad: He's the final boss, but he's not the one behind the plot of the story.
  • Demonic Possession: Shun has granted Oath too much control over his mind in exchange for power. When he finally loses against Yuuto, he gives over his entire mind to Oath, who destroys Desire and becomes World. Shun is basically dead from that point forward, though he still answers to the name.
  • It's All About Me
  • Jerkass: He's a controlling prick obsessed with Kaori. He wouldn't hurt her, but he's such a dick that Yuuto won't let her near him, making him even more hostile.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He's obviously surly and abrasive in the prologue, but he's right in that Yuuto is being too controlling towards Kaori. Kaori doesn't mind being his friend and if Yuuto had just let them be things might have turned out better in regards to the relationship between the three. They still would have ended up fighting, though.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: He grew up alone, unwanted by his family and frequently in the hospital for an illness of some sort. When he met Kaori, she was the first person who actually seemed friendly and kind. He grew obsessed with her because his life until then had taught him you need to take the things you want or they'll be taken from you.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Shun is the one really running the Empire, but Oath is controlling him.
  • Staying Alive: An Eternal will only die for real if they do not anchor themselves in another world. So when Temuorin, Takios and Shun are killed, it basically just meant a temporary banishment from the battlefield.
  • Yandere: He grew obsessed with Kaori after she showed him a little kindness and decided he had to possess her.

Uruka Blackspirit

Uruka is the most powerful Rakios spirit and seems to function as an assassin and special agent. She is extremely skilled at swordplay and very fast. She has a strong sense of honor, no sense of humor and appears to enjoy fighting. She is the final recruitable spirit and becomes the best black spirit in the game.

  • Antiquated Linguistics: Uruka is incredibly formal and archaic with her speech. She finds it almost impossible to even shorten someone’s name when they beg her to let alone referring to everyone like they were her lord.
  • Badass
  • Big Damn Villains: After conquering Sardbart, Lemuria is convinced her father's ambition is going to destroy the country and decides she has to stop him. Nice timing for Ulruka to show up and assassinate him, huh? Though Uruka claims that she hasn't been able to kill anyone in a long time, so that leaves it kind of suspicious for Lesteena.
  • Blood Knight: Though she dislikes actually killing.
  • Glass Cannon: She has the strongest attacks of the black spirits under your control, but only so so health and mediocre defense. However, later on she becomes an okay defender with support.
  • Japanese Pronouns: Uruka uses a rare and very humble first person pronoun, 'temae.'
  • Lethal Chef: Why is she so confident in her cooking abilities?
  • No Sense of Humor: The only fun Uruka has comes through fighting. She gets confused when people find something funny.


Soma is a human captain of Sargios and an extremely cruel man who makes even Shun look good by comparison. His past is tied to those of both Uruka and Esperia.

  • Flunky Boss: He can't fight himself. He just sends his spirit squads out to kill for him.
  • Jerkass: No redeeming characteristics. He attempted to break Esperia as a child and has only refrained from doing the same to Uruka's subordinates so long as she gets results.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He raises spirits, breaks their minds and in doing so makes them into his slaves. They tend to become very powerful as a result, which less ethical leaders take advantage of.
  • Smug Snake: Despite being such a bastard, he's just not that important and his group isn't nearly as powerful as he likes to think.


Eternals are immortal beings with immense power that wield high ranking Eternity Swords and godlike power. They fall into two major factions, Law and Chaos.


Tokimi is a mysterious miko that Yuuto meets at the beginning of the game even before venturing to Phantasmorgia. She wields at least two rank three Eternity Swords as well as a powerful magic fan. She has the ability to manipulate time and can see the future, an ability she had as a mortal that was strengthed when she gained Prophecy. She acts polite and dignified in front of others, but this is merely a front for her rather sharp tongue and quick temper.

  • Badass
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Tokimi. Only Yuuto and his lover ever seem to realize it. To be fair, Tokimi's quite pleasant so long as you never mention her age or in Yuuto's case have really bad sex with her.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Deus Sex Machina: Yuuto has to sleep with Tokimi to be able to undergo the test to become an Eternal. Esperia and Kyouko are not very happy about it in their routes. Then it is later revealed that the ritual was completely unnecessary, and Tokimi only lied about it so that she could sleep with Yuuto.
  • Jumped at the Call: Tokimi was thrilled at the chance to abandon her humanity and become an Eternal. Having the ability to see the future let her know that her life would be boring and filled with fighting otherwise.
  • Miko
  • Person of Mass Destruction
  • Physical God
  • Prescience Is Predictable: Tokimi finds her prophetic abilities rather boring. She’s had them in some form since she was born and knew that she would fight demons and monsters her entire life until she eventually died. When she came across Prophecy, she jumped at the chance to do something more interesting. She still has problems with boredom, though.
  • Stalker with a Crush: When you think about it, Tokimi has been watching Yuuto since before he was born and he's even a large part of the reason she became an Eternal in the first place.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Tokimi has only a rank 3 sword to fight against Shun's rank 2 (the power difference is apparently exponential) but can see the future and uses that to bridge the power gap and force him to leave.


Temuorin is the leader of the Law Eternals in Eien no Aselia. She is referred to as the Matriarch and looks like an extremely young girl. She wield the Eternity Sword Order, which takes the form of a staff. Behind her polite words she is extremely sadistic.

  • Big Bad: It's a bit tricky to say who between her and Shun is the Big Bad. Temuorin engineered the plot of the story, but Shun is stronger and the final fight as well as held up to be the real villain of the story.
  • The Chessmaster
  • Cute and Psycho: Temuorin looks even younger than Kaori and is perpetually cheery, but has a tendency to say some rather disturbing things. And also be a completely vicious Omnicidal Maniac.
  • Evil Is Petty: Temuorin takes a moment to make a quip about Tokimi’s age.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Temuorin is the one really running the whole thing.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • Person of Mass Destruction
  • Physical God
  • Staying Alive: An Eternal will only die for real if they do not anchor themselves in another world. So when Temuorin, Takios and Shun are killed, it basically just meant a temporary banishment from the battlefield.


Takios is the lieutenant of Temuorin. Unlike the other Eternals, Takios seems to care for little but having a good fight. He has an unexplained connection to Wisdom, Yuuto's second Eternity Sword.

  • Badass
  • Blood Knight: His entire reason for living, apparently.
  • The Dragon
  • No Sell: In Aselia's route, you come across Takios before becoming an Eternal. Things don't go well.
  • Person of Mass Destruction
  • Physical God
  • Staying Alive: An Eternal will only die for real if they do not anchor themselves in another world. So when Temuorin, Takios and Shun are killed, it basically just meant a temporary banishment from the battlefield.


Below are any miscellaneous characters in Eien no Aselia. These range from acquaintances of Yuuto to Eternity Swords to largely neutral characters.


Kotori is Kaori's best friend. Yuuto, as always, is quite oblivious to her crush.


Desire is Yuuto's Eternity Sword, a rank four blue weapon with an extreme case of bloodthirst that tries to control Yuuto in order to destroy his hated enemy Oath. Yuuto and Desire have a grudging partnership since their goals largely overlap, but neither can stand the personality of the other.

  • The Comically Serious: Occasionally, when he's not half killing Yuuto or urging him to murder, pillage and rape.
  • Cool Sword: Even if he is an asshole.
  • Deal with the Devil: Desire saved Kaori in exchange for Yuuto agreeing to wield him so he could destroy the other three swords.
  • Empathic Weapon: Though he edges into Evil Weapon territory.
  • Evil Weapon: Eternity swords of rank 4 and 5 are intelligent enough to be rational unlike the lower ranked swords, but not rational enough to control their natures. After he dies, Yuuto realizes that Desire felt like he was constantly starving to death.
  • Irrational Hatred: Desire hates Oath with every ounce of his being, but it’s never stated what issue he has with the other sword. The answer is that there IS no reason that Desire could actually explain. All four swords want to destroy and absorb each other because they A. feel like they’re starving and need more mana and B. they need to destroy each other so they can all fuse into the rank 2 sword Rebirth. That’s the very point of their existence, so their desire to fight each other lies at the very core of their being. Desire stops caring about Void or Karma once they forfeit without being destroyed, which was probably a hint that Yuuto should have picked up on.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: At one point, Yuuto asks Desire if he’s plotting something again and gets a confused response. All Desire has been doing is trying to get Yuuto to abide by the terms of the contract he signed of his own free will. So much for "I’ll do anything to save Kaori."
  • There Can Be Only One: Void, Karma, Oath and Desire all hate each other because they need to absorb each other. If another sword is clearly defeated, they become indifferent to whether they're actually dead or not.
  • Villain Ball: Desire urges Yuuto to destroy and devour the three main spirits early on despite the fact that their support makes it more likely for Desire to wipe out Karma, Void and Oath. However, Desire simply can’t help itself. It constantly feels like it’s starving to death.
  • Villain's Dying Grace: After spending the entire story trying to corrupt and control Yuuto, in his dying moments Desire grants everything he has left to Yuuto, no strings attached.
  • You Never Asked: Desire has known from the beginning that Eternals were watching the group. He never mentioned it because Yuuto never asked. Plus, he didn’t care.


Youtia is the most intelligent person in Phantasmorgia and an extremely renowned scientist. She defected from Sargios out of disgust at their methods and essentially became a hermit.

  • Absent-Minded Professor: Yuuto was half expecting Youtia to be a flaky oddball, but she manages to exceed his expectations anyway.
  • All Take and No Give: It's not really clear why Io hangs around Youtia given how selfish she is.
  • Big Eater: Implied. She eats enough food for four people when she manages to badger Yuuto into making something for her. Then again, considering it's her, she may not have eaten in days.
  • Hot Scientist: Youtia... although her sprite is absolutely ridiculous looking due to her face being about about a third lower on her head than it should be.
  • Insufferable Genius: Youtia is really obnoxious, but Lesteena lets her get away with everything because of how intelligent she is.

Io Whitespirit

Io is a spirit that seems to be of a unique type. She claims her combat powers are low, but that her eternity sword has a lot of mundane utility.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Io says she can’t fight, but when she starts getting annoyed at Youtia for refusing to wake up, she gathers up so much mana that even Desire begins sending out warning signals. Fortunately for Youtia, her sense of self-preservation activates and she gets up before we see what Io was going to do to her.
  • Cloud Cuckoolanders Minder: Io has to take care of the little things with Youtia, like making sure she doesn’t starve to death.
  • Guest Star Party Member: She's available for use during Chapter V of Lesteena's route where it's shown rather conclusively that she is not in fact a crappy fighter. She plays as a more magically oriented blue spirit.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: She claims to have weak combat skills, but she's actually a very good unit, including the ability to outright remove an enemy from play by freezing them solid.
  • Literal Starfish Character: She was discovered and researched by Quedgin and Youtia, who both eventually defected. An alternate version of Io is used as a boss fight at the end of the Malorigan chapter.
  • Mundane Utility: Uses her eternity sword to freeze some water and other rather low key activities. Apparently, despite their ice powers blue spirits can't really do that kind of thing.
  • Mystical White Hair: Io, who is from a group of spirits so rare that even in their world she's strange.
  • Non-Elemental: Though she does have ice powers, they’re not like a normal blue spirits. Her primary attribute is actually a lack of an element, which is why she’s a white spirit.


Wisdom is a rank two Eternity Sword encountered near the end of the game. He is very calm and thoughtful and expects the same values from his wielder.

  • Cool Sword: And unlike the sword he's replacing he's actually powerful enough to not have to try eating people.
  • Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: Yuuto isn't very respectful towards the godlike Wisdom. Then again, by this point he's bordering on being a god himself.
  • Empathic Weapon

Other Eternity Swords

  • BFS: Some eternity swords, but not all. Karma is probably the largest.
  • Cool Sword: Pretty much by definition.
  • Empathic Weapon
  • Evil Weapon: Eternity swords of rank 4 and 5 are intelligent enough to be rational unlike the lower ranked swords, but not rational enough to control their natures. Rank 2 and 3 swords can control themselves, but do not always choose to do so.
  • There Can Be Only One: Void, Karma, Oath and Desire all hate each other because they need to absorb each other. If another sword is clearly defeated, they become indifferent to whether they're actually dead or not.
