Debuts in Fantasia: Realm of Thanos
Spoilers for the ending of Realm of Thanos and the subsequent games are marked.
Cheryl Nielsen, later Cheryl Leingold
Cheryl in Before Requiem, physically aged 19.
"I wanted to show you that this world is already beautiful as it is... There's no need to change it..." — Cheryl in Realm of Thanos.A black-haired girl who came to Fantasia from Earth after being contacted by the mysterious "White Lady".
Adaptation Dye-Job: Her eyes are dark brown in Realm of Thanos, but dark gray in Requiem of the Abyss.
Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Cheryl is the Gentle Girl to Oswald in Realm of Thanos. She can also be this to Leon, if on his path.
Brown Eyes: In the original game, Realm of Thanos, her eyes were dark brown.
Clingy Jealous Girl: Other than the fact that she tried to Murder the Hypotenuse, Vestoria, in one of the non-canon endings, in Before Requiem it is also shown that she has always been envious of Vestoria's position in Oswald's heart even after she and Oswald were married.
Stepford Smiler: Type A. Cheryl seems like a lighthearted, carefree young girl, but she's actually hiding all of the pain the death of her family caused her by acting like it's nothing and not thinking about it.
"Living Forever Is Awesome"The thousand-year-old Demon Lord who is the main villain of Realm of Thanosand also Cheryl's main love interest. Appears to be 19 years old. He marries Cheryl by Before Requiem.
Likable Villain: Aside from Oswald's amusing snide remarks, he has a very Tragic Backstory. You can't help feeling at least a little bit sorry for the guy. He also treats Cheryl fairly nicely during the whole game, and is not planning to destroy the world just For the Evulz. And, being the main love interest, he had to have some redeeming qualities.
Noble Demon: At the beginning, Oswald could have easily killed Cheryl and not suffer the risk of her foiling his Evil Plan, but, instead, he let her live, claiming that "seeing her fail would be more enjoyable." The Starry Night festival is also a good example of why Oswald is a Noble Demon.
Power Gives You Wings: Oswald when he reaches the peak of his power. Played for Laughs when he says "The wings are cool and all, but they get in the way. Better remove them, I'll only need the power anyway," and makes them disappear.
Sealed Evil in a Can: He was sealed by Vestoria to keep him from trying to Take Over the World while she tries travels to our world to find Fantasia's savior. It doesn't last long, however. Early in the game, Oswald breaks free from the seal.
Shipper on Deck: He only approves of Cain as a possible husband candidate for his daughter, Valen.
"Nobody deserves to live. Not after what they've done to me. " — Leon in Realm of Thanos.Blue-haired assassin who works for the King. He is a half human who is treated as a living weapon. By the end of Realm of Thanos, marries Melodia Sanchez and becomes the official King's general of Seldrus.
".................." — Realm of Thanos15-year-old black-haired boy who wears a scarf and seldom talks. Cheryl first runs into him when walking down a street, but he doesn't say a word, merely staring at her the whole time. He is very timid and silent, and when he talks his voice is barely audible. At the end of Realm of Thanos, he starts a guild which would later by Memento of Grand Finale become the Pacifist Alliance Organization. In Before Requiem, he meets Nydia Calantha and later is married to her.
An Ice Person Ian's curse gives him the ability to freeze things whenever he opens his mouth.
Green-haired half-elf who is later revealed to be the cousin of Leon. Seems anti-social and manipulative at first, but is a very calm person. At the beginning of the game, he wears a hood (thus covering most of his face), but when the game goes on, he'll remove the hood and reveal his face.
Fantasy-Forbidding Father: Becomes a sort of example in the sequel. He insists that his son follow in his footsteps as chief of the elf village, while his son would rather devote his life to research. If the player influences Raven to take the "research" path, however, Gil ultimately backs off and respects his son's decision.
Karma Houdini: Thanos in Rot A, in the endings other than the True End. He caused the deaths of so many, and perhaps even the lives of Valen herself or the guy she is after (or maybe even Oswald and Cheryl), and what happens to him? In a good/best end, he is defeated, but fades away with a smirk and saying that he will still be there, just without a form anymore. And in a bad/normal end, he survives. Grinning. And even in the True End he doesn't die - just that you don't hate him anymore. Then again, who ever hates Thanos?
Leitmotif: Realm of Thanos in Realm of Thanos, though it also serves as a general "evil" theme for Oswald. In Memento of Grand Finale, his Leitmotif is "Thanos' Theme".
"But is that all?! Do I stop here? No! The faces of my friends... Seeing them happy, seeing them content is what means the most in my life!"A demon who first appeared as a child in Realm of Thanos with a minor role, and reappears in Requiem of the Abyss being Valen's CanonLove Interest and her childhood friend, though she does not remember this.
Elemental Hair: During the rare times when she uses magic, she tends to use Dark magic thanks to her father's teachings.
Faux Action Girl: She is said to be an immortal with quite a bit of skill taught by her dad, but she can never really fight. Almost every correct choice in the game that does not give you a bad end requires for her to run away from the situation.
The most notable exception is probably Raven's path, in which Valen escapes the Barracudas - a rebel group led by Nazim's sister - by kicking their asses with her own magical power. Aside from that though, she doesn't get to do much.
Billy Elliot Plot: Sort of. His father, Gil, insists that Raven succeed him as chief of the elf village. Raven wants to devote his life to research. If the player takes Raven's route, she can influence which path Raven decides to take through a choice late in his route.
Brown-haired Navendel Prince from the Kingdom of Valdrox. Freaked out by women.
Badass: He learned to fight on his own. By personally going after bandits. The only reason he doesn't fight more often in the story is his status as a prince, and just how much Hell it would mean for his people if something were to happen to him.
My Greatest Failure: He blames himself for his little sister's death. When they were children, he wanted to chase after a blue butterfly into the desert. He lost track of her and she was killed by bandits.
The Wise Prince: Very clearly believes in seeking peace, breaking the war-waging tradition set by his forefathers. He's also outright stated to be the "mature and dependable" type. Cares about his people above all else.
Blond-haired human prince from the Kingdom of Seldrus. Is a playboy.
The Dark Sea Nymph - A blue haired demon who serves under Thanosbefore his Heel-Face Turn. When he was still alive, he was a half-human who was discriminated against, and longed to become a great mage.
Though Before Requiem is chronologically set around the time of the Crimson War before Requiem of the Abyss, it is highly recommended that it be played after Requiem of the Abyss as it further explores many of the backstories of the characters in Realm of Thanos and Requiem of the Abyss, many of which would return in Memento of Grand Finale.With that in mind, it should be noted that spoilers of Realm of Thanos and Requiem of the Abyss will not be marked.
"What else is there to say... Sirius?"
Era in her twenties.
Era as a child.
Sirius Vermilion's childhood friend and sweetheart, an elf who specializes in fire magic. She teaches Sirius how to summon Loki.In Memento of Grand Finale, she comes back as a demon who joins the Guild as a D-Ranked Spellcaster.
Facial Markings: Under her right eye is a marking of an elf. Even as a demon, she still has it, as demons continue to retain the physical aspects of their earlier race before they slowly start gaining more and more animalistic features.
A woman from Ian's village who was away from it when it was frozen. When the village returned to normal, she was greatly shocked to realize that time had also frozen, and nobody could recognize her. Later, she is married to Ian Vanguardion, and is the ancestor of Zephyr and Nero Vanguardion.
Worthy Opponent: Lenarche was the only person in the history of newbies to ever knock out Quatro Leader Zephyr Vanguardion. It was a tie though, since she got knocked out herself at the same time. And woke up much later than he did. But hey, who has ever tied with Zephyr?
Green-haired descendant of Ian Vanguardion. Zephyr is the son of the Guild Leader, Helberg Vanguardion.
The Faceless: Zephyr hides more than half of his face (more specifically, from his eyes to his nose) with a mask. It spawns several hilarious theories about what is really underneath it, as well as people wondering how he even sees things.
Nuns Are Mikos: Inverted. She seems and acts like a Japanese miko, but her rules regarding love and sexuality are as strict as that of a Christian Nun. Justified, as she is not a nun or a miko, but a priestess.
