    The Warriors of Light 

Sol

The leader of the Warriors of Light, Sol is an apprentice swordsman in the independent Kingdom of Lux. He's an eternal optimist, if a bit of a ditz.

  • Genki Boy: Absolutely nothing can put a dent in this boy's optimistic energy.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His starting equipment includes a sword. He also appears with one in promotional art, including the title image.
  • Idiot Hero: Sol is a little slow on the uptake.
  • Love Triangle: Involved in one with Glaive and Diana. Diana is in love with him, but he has no clue whatsoever.
  • Meaningful Name: It means "sun".
  • Mythology Gag / Expy: To Bartz. They are both Idiot Heroes who happen to look similar and even dress somewhat similar except Sol wears read and Bartz wears blue as Freelancers.
  • Right Handed Mirror: To Nacht. Both are orphans chosen by the Crystal and both choose to be heroes, but Sol is the leader of the Warriors of Light and nearly Nacht's total opposite in personality and appearance.
  • Totally Radical: Sol uses modern slang awkwardly, such as commenting on "one epic airship."

Aigis

The hero of the Kingdom of Lux, and Diana's older brother. Glaive and Sol are his apprentices. He expects to be recruited by the Imperial forces for his skills.

Sarah aka Princess Sarah of Burtgang

A mysterious girl captured by the Empire and forced to work for them. She appears to have some sort of unknown power.

Dusk

A young man from Harmonia who was "recruited" by the Empire to do their dirty work. He is Alba's twin brother.

    The Warriors of Darkness 

Nacht

A deadly serious young man who is forced to do dirty jobs for the Empire. He was orphaned in the wars of conquest before the game begins.

  • Bishōnen: If official art is to be believed.
  • Dramatic Ellipsis: Every other thing he says...
  • Left-Handed Mirror: To Sol. Both are orphans chosen by the Crystal and both choose to be heroic, but Nacht is Sol's opposite in nearly all other ways, from hair color to personality.
  • Meaningful Name: His name means "night".
  • The Stoic: Nacht is described in his introduction as emotionless. He doesn't react too much. Doesn't talk much, either. Even when faced with dirty magazines, he does little more than blink at them. The most he ever seems to emote is when the subject of his homeland, Falgabard is at hand. And even then, it's mostly expressed with a slightly different sort of silence.
  • Troubled, but Cute
  • You Gotta Have Teal Hair: It's the exact shade of the night sky, in fact.

Alba

A brash and snarky young woman from Harmonia. She, along with her twin, Dusk, have been "recruited" by the Empire to do dirty work for them.

Diana

Diana is a young woman from Lux. She is Sol and Glaive's childhood friend, and Aigis' younger sister.

  • Distress Ball: When infiltrating the Imperial Base, only Diana manages to get lost while running away and get herself captured.
  • The Heart / The Chick: Diana serves in this role for whichever group of heroes she's with.
  • Friend to All Living Things
  • Love Triangle: Diana is in love with Sol, but Glaive is in love with her.
  • Meaningful Name: Diana is a reference to the goddess of the Moon, which not only symbolizes her status as a Warrior of Darkness, but also her relationship with Sol.
  • True Blue Femininity
  • Tsundere: Usually very sweet unless it's Sol we're talking about.
  • White Mage: She starts with this skillset initially, although after jobs are available it opens up. Her alignment pretty much forces her to take another role eventually.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair

Glaive

A ponytailed young man from Lux. He is Aigis' apprentice, Sol's rival, and Diana's friend.

  • Anime Hair: How the heck does he get his ponytail to stick out like that? Mousse?
  • Cannot Spit It Out: He just can't tell Diana he loves her.
  • Love Triangle: Glaive is in love with Diana, but she only has eyes for Sol.
  • Meaningful Name: A "glaive" is a type of polearm. Glaive is best suited for melee classes. Sadly, there's no way to take it to the extreme by making him a Dragoon, since he's a Warrior of Darkness.
  • The Rival: To Sol.

    Allies of Light 

Elgo

"An emperor must be the absolute symbol of the land, feared by one and all. The position exists beyond the realm of age and death, like a god among mortals. My people have always been ruled by an emperor since time immemorial. But I hungered for more than temporal power. I wanted the strength of the Crystals to defy death itself and reign until the very end of days!"

A self-proclaimed wandering prophet. He's looking for the rising of the Light Warriors, so he can help and protect them.

He is actually the Emperor, and he seeks to use the power of the crystals to become a god and cheat death. The crystals themselves sense this and attempt to keep him from gaining them all, and by game's end he is almost successful...that is, until he loses his control over the Nil and is absorbed, becoming Chaos Elgo.

Barbara

A dragoon who has been raised by dragons and moogles. She is fiercely protective of her "family".

Eduardo

A world-famous bard from the port town of Rusalka. He has fallen in love with a mermaid.

Argy

A gynoid created by Dr. Lugae. Although created to be a machine, Lugae viewed her as a daughter and gave her emotions.

  • Airship Girl: Becomes the core of Lugae's airship after her "death". She was meant to be the core of the Heliogabalus, the Empire's most powerful airship.
  • Disney Death: Given that she's a machine, it should be expected that death wouldn't be permanent.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Despite being a machine she's still vulnerable to status effects like Sleep and Poison.
  • Guest Star Party Member
  • Heel-Face Turn: Thanks to her memory loss, she becomes an ally of the party and comes to view Sol and Sarah as surrogate parents.
  • Hello, Insert Name Here: As she has no memory of her real name, Sol and Sarah decide to give her a new one for the time being. There actually is no default name. The Warriors refer to her as that name for the rest of the game, while Dr. Lugae continues to use the name "Argy".
  • Jack-of-All-Trades: As a Memorist, she can replace all her battle commands with a random selection chosen from those she already knows. She can also equip all weapons and all armor.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Burns herself out protecting Sol and Sarah.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: A more justified case than usual, as she is a machine and it's possible her memory does work that way.
  • Robot Girl
  • What Is This Thing You Call Love?

Gawain

A paladin and the former captain of the guard for the Kingdom of Burtgang. Is currently drinking away the memory of failing to protect the Kingdom and its royal family.

Sophia

The leader of the magic city Mysidia.

    Allies of Darkness 

Gramps aka King Feyr of the Elves

An old blind man living near the Mazewood. Despite his blindness, he is a master archer. And a pervert.

  • Blind Weaponmaster: He is a crack shot with his bow despite being completely blind.
  • Dirty Old Man: He takes an opportunity to fondle Alba and imagines she's wearing a yellow polka dot bikini.
  • Fragile Speedster / Glass Cannon: Good thing his weapon choice allows him to go in the rear row.
  • Guest Star Party Member
  • Hello, Insert Name Here: Unlike most of the guests. When he joins the party, he doesn't remember his own name, so the party (and thus the player) comes up with a temporary name to refer to him by. "Gramps" is the default.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He jumps in front of Asmodai's magic blast to save his wife and son, and then uses a suicide attack to take down his barrier so the Dark Warriors can finish him.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: His Aim ability can target the victim's mouth (silence), heart (confuse), or legs (stun).
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Gramps can't remember anything, including his own name. Rather than senility, it's because his memories were erased as part of his deal to protect his wife and child.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something

Graham

A Dark Knight and the sole survivor of the massacre at Falgabard.

  • Animated Armor
  • Black Knight: How he's introduced to the party.
  • Cast from Hit Points: Darkness and Onyx Wave consume one third of his max HP to use. Last Resort is sort of a roundabout form of this: it massively improves his stats, at the cost of killing at the count of 10.
  • Empathic Weapon: He is one. The suit of armor being an empty shell controlled by the sword. Even after losing command of the armor, the sword can still speak, remains with Nacht, and acts as a fifth member of the party, albeit no longer controllable as a party member.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Kind of. He loses control of Sigurd's armor as a result of the massive amount of damage he takes on protecting the party from Baugauvan. The sword he's possessing still exists, however.
  • Guest Star Party Member
    • Unlike some of the others, he does find a way to remain in the party. As a weapon in your inventory, that is.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Sort of. He's controlled by Graham's mind inside a dark sword, but possessing Nacht's father's armor which he refers to as if it were Sigurd. Which it may be in some way.
  • Mighty Glacier
  • Sole Survivor: Well, except for Nacht who wasn't at the castle at the time.
  • Standard Status Effects: Curse causes both Curse and Sap status effects.
  • Talking Weapon

Matoya

An exotic dancer in the desert city of Gardenia. She is the fourth of that name. She is also the leader of Desert Moon.

Jinnai

A one-armed ninja and member of the Koga Clan. He was involved in the attack on Burtgang, but chose to leave the Clan after he found out it was done in the name of the Empire.

The Mask

A magus who is seeking the ultimate Black Magic spell. He is watching over Sol and Nacht for some mysterious reason. He is actually Elgo in disguise. Part of Elgo, anyway.

  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Shows up to save Edna from Styx in the nick of time.
    • And then again to save Glaive from being killed by Imperial soldiers.
    • And again to save all four Dark Warriors from Cocytus.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Three times. First, he defends the Warriors of Darkness from Cocytus, then he performs what appears to be a self-sacrificing move in order to restore health to the Warriors as they fight Chaos Elgo, and then his spirit helps to hold back the tide of light from the exploding Nil.
  • Literal Split Personality: The Mask is Elgo's self-doubt and morality made manifest, and was split from him when the Crystal shattered the world in two.
  • Mysterious Protector: Although not in a Shōjo (Demographic) or Magical Girl series, he still serves the same role. He wears a domino mask and pops up to save the party in the nick of time multiple times and then vanishing before he can be thanked.
  • The Red Mage: Has both Black and White magic, although he is stronger in the offense department. Fitting, considering his identity.
  • Magic Staff
  • Guest Star Party Member: Twice.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy

    Various NP Cs 

Bikke

The Pirate King. He and his men have closed off Port Capo on Styx's orders.

The Nil

An ancient power of nothingness residing within the Void, or perhaps the Void itself. This incarnation of the Void is unique in that the concept itself seems to be sentient, as well as malignant, therefore giving it the traits of a character. In it's great bid to return everything to non-existence, the Nil created a host of powerful monsters known as the Armies of Nil, led by the Blades of Nil (Suffering, Despair, Anguish and Misery). It used Elgo to further it's omnicidal designs, giving him power in exchange for an opportunity to manifest in the wolds of light and dark. It is the source of the Dark Flows, which are similar to portals and lead to various areas of the Void. It is fought directly twice, once when Vata sacrifices himself by forcing the Nil to use him as a host and is defeated in battle, and the second time as the Final Boss, Chaos Elgo, where it manifests enough of it's power to nearly kill the party.

Tobikage

The adopted son of the Elder of the Fuga Clan, and Jinnai's adopted brother.

    Imperials 

The Emperor

The ruler of the Empire. He has been alive for at least 100 years.

He is actually Elgo.

  • Genocide Backfire: His tendency to kill all but one Sole Survivor in multiple towns is what eventually leads to his defeat.
  • Really 700 Years Old
  • Tin Tyrant: His armor calls Exdeath to mind, among others. However, you never fight him in the armor. The party attacks an empty suit of armor they are led to believe contains the Emperor. When they face the Emperor for real, he is wearing the same Red Mage outfit he always has been.
  • You Have Failed Me: To Cid.

Cid

A commander of an airship in the Imperial fleet. It is he that "recruits" Nacht, Alba, Dusk, and Sarah to steal the Lux Crystal.

  • Kick the Dog: His treatment of Argy as nothing more than a machine and striking Dr. Lugae when he objects certainly qualifies.
  • Magitek: His specialty.
  • Mythology Gag: He's a villainous Magitek scientist with an airship. It seems they incorporated nearly all the Cid traits into one crazy package.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: And a blue mustache.

Dr. Lugae

A Magitek scientist working for the Empire. He is the creator of Argy.

Baugauven of the Flame

One of the Empire's four generals. He's extremely vicious and without mercy.

Vata of the Wind

One of the Empire's four generals. He's headstrong and ruthless. He later manages to steal the Dragoon job that was meant for the Light Warriors only, and turns its powers against them.

Asmodai of the Earth

One of the Empire's four generals. He is impersonating King Feyr. He is a firm believer in prophecies.

Styx of the Water

One of the Empire's four generals. She is a witch who relies on trickery and traps.

Shango of the Lightning

One of the four Divine General of the Empire.

  • Graceful Loser: With his last words he expresses his wish that he had met people like the Warriors back when he was still human.
  • Meaningful Name: In Yoruba mythology, Shango is the god of fire, lightning, and thunder. This is carried over to Haitian voodoo, where he is venerated as the god of thunder and weather.
  • Shock and Awe
  • Sorting Algorithm of Evil: Only appears after you have defeated the Four Generals multiple times.
  • You Have Failed Me: To Styx after she is defeated by the party for the third time.

Cocytus of the Ice

One of the four divine generals with power over ice.

  • Elemental Hair: Her long, white hair is indicative of her ice elemental powers.
  • Emotionless Girl: She believes only the weak posses emotions.
  • Evil Is Deathly Cold
  • An Ice Person
  • Meaningful Name: In Dante's Divine Comedy, Cocytus is the innermost circle of Hell and is a frozen lake. It's home to three sections: Caina for traitors to family, Antenora for traitors to country, and Ptolomea for traitors to guests. Very appropriate, seeing as how all three happen in the arc she's introduced in.

Imperio of the Light

One of the four divine generals, with the power of light. He seems to have the position of the Emperor's right hand.

  • Affably Evil: to contrast with the violent Shango or icy Cocytus, he is very polite, and treats the Warriors like "honored guests" when they approach Avalon Castle. He even asks politely for them to offer the Crystals to the empire before defaulting to battle when they refuse.
  • Light 'em Up: Wields the power of light in battle, obviously.
  • Light Is Not Good: He is endowed with the power of light, but he is firmly on the side of the Empire.
  • Meaningful Name: "Imperio" is Spanish for "empire". A fitting name for the man who acts as the de-facto leader of the empire when the Emperor is too busy.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: When the battle begins to go poorly for him, he transforms into Gehenna of the Darkness. More of a differently superpowerd, more evil side, really.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: He is also Gehenna of the Darkness

Gehenna of the Darkness

One of the four divine generals, with the power of darkness. A total enigma; it is said that nobody has ever seen him, save for the emperor.

  • The Berserker: In contrast to the upstanding Imperio, Gehenna is like a wild beast once he begins his fight with the party.
  • Casting a Shadow: Wields the power of darkness.
  • Meaningful Name: "Gehenna" is a place of torment in Jewish faith roughly analogous to Hell. It is also said to be deeply cursed, once being a place of sacrifices to Moloch.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Pretty much insane and loving it. He is said to throw around black magic like a child playing with a doll.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: He is actually another side of Imperio, who comes out when Imperio begins to lose his fight with the party
  • Yin-Yang Bomb He is also Imperio of the Light.

    The Job Classes 

While not characters, these jobs add characterization tropes to the two groups of Warriors.

Jobs common to both groups:

Freelancer

The base job class for the heroes, although not for any of the Guest Star Party Members. It can equip any weapon or armor and has four slots for class skills.

Warrior

A class that specializes in physical attacks. Can equip nearly all of the melee weapons plus bows.

Monk

A martial arts specialist class. Equips claws.

Thief

A speedy class that can steal from enemies. Also has an ability to increase item drop rate. Equips daggers, katanas, bows, and boomerangs.

Red Mage

A Jack-of-All-Trades class that generalizes in physical attacks and black and white magic, but specializes in nothing.

White Mage

A class specializing in healing and status buffs.

Black Mage

A class specializing in offensive magic and negative status ailments.

Summoner

A class that summons Eidolons for powerful magic damage.

Jobs only available to the Light Warriors:

Dragoon

A heavily armored class that utilizes the series' signature Jump move. It also has access to breath attacks that hit all enemies.

Bard

A class that relies on the magic of music for attacking.

Memorist

Memorists can use all abilities known by the character, but there is a catch. Using the Memorandum ability replaces all of a character's battle commands with those randomly chosen from commands they know.

  • Jack-of-All-Trades: A Memorist can use any ability in the game, provided you've learned them. They can also equip any weapon or armor.
  • Magikarp Power: In order to get full utility out of this class you'll need to level other jobs first.
  • One-Way Visor

Paladin

A heavily armored class that uses class specific holy swords, holy sword abilities, and white magic.

Seer

Jobs available only to the Dark Warriors:

Ranger

Master archers who rely on speed.
