    Class Zero (Playable Characters) 
A special class within the Suzaku Peristylium assembled as a preemptive strike force in case the other three nations of Oriense break the Pax Codex and set their sights upon Rubrum.

Universal tropes:

  • Badass Cape or Scarf Of Ass Kicking: Except Seven.
  • Badass Crew
  • Band of Brothers
  • Child Soldiers: The latest foray into this theme since the SeeD. It is explained in universe as the Suzaku Crystal can only grant magic to the young and as people age their skill with magic diminishes, despite this the nation of Rubrum still considers using the students of Suzaku as soldiers as highly unethical.
  • The Chosen One: Each student is a part of Operation Apostle where he/she is striving to become the Agito, who was prophesied to appear at "Finis".
  • Code Name: All but Rem and Machina; however, they have no canon real names. They were originally going to, but the developers chose to only use the codenames. Since they were raised together by Arecia, they may well have forgotten their real names.
  • Flat Character: Excluding Machina and Rem.
    • Turns out this is a deliberate arrangement by Arecia, who specifically conditioned such personalities since childhood as a way to prevent Finis and open Etro's Gate without the slaughter of billions at cost of their lives.
  • Flat "What.": Deciding to talk to the Tonberry between will have this reaction from all characters.
    Machina: He-...hello.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: The principal objective of Operation Apostle is exactly this. They succeed in the normal ending (no matter what between-mission tasks the player did in between), but in the secret ending Arecia pulls off a Cosmic Retcon to spare them their grim fate and allow them to live as a happy, if sometimes wacky, class.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal
  • Numerical Theme Naming: With the exception of Machina and Rem.
  • Only One Name: Again, all but Machina and Rem.
  • Panty Shot: In a disturbing glimpse into the mindset of the developers, the texturers put detail into giving each female playable character a unique and distinct set of underwear under their skirts, when previously during development, there was just going to be shadows and shading. May be justified due to how noticable the shadows could seem at times
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As L'Cie.
  • Red Mage: As students of a Wizarding School they all can use offensive, healing and support magic (in varying levels of proficiency). They are even called this by Qator.
  • School Uniforms are the New Black: Of course it is both a Wizarding School and a Military School.
  • Summon Magic: Any character can summon a War God at the expense of all his/her HP, rendering him/her unusable for the rest of the mission.
  • Tragic Dream: In the tie in novel all of them mention one, except Nine who can't think of anything. Ace to own a Chocobo Ranch, Deuce to be a musician, Jack to be a comedian, Trey a scholar, Queen a teacher of traditional subjects rather then magic and weaponry, Cinque to travel the world, Cater to find love, Eight to become a competitive martial artist, Seven to make an orphanage for the children who lost their parents in the war, Sice to be a chef and King a police officer. Machina and Rem share a dream of rebuilding the county.
  • True Companions: Unto the bitter end. They even hold hands as they die.
  • Wacky Homeroom: In the secret ending.
  • Weapon of Choice: Each one of them has a unique weapon and fighting style to go with it.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Most of the females score various ranks.

Machina Kunagiri

Age: 17
Birthday: (Unknown)
Height: 175cm
Weapon: Dual Rapiers
Voiced by: Hiroshi Kamiya (JP)

A transferee to Class Zero from Class Two (evidenced by his old navy-blue cape) and Rem's childhood friend, as well as her fellow lead character. Younger brother of Izana who seeks revenge to Class Zero for not preventing Izana's death. His constellation nature is Fear.
  • Badass Cape: Special mention for being longer then the other students with a High Collar of Doom.
  • Blade Spam: His Assault Mode especially.
  • Cast From Hitpoints: As per its standard in the series the Darkside attack drains Machina's health.
  • Cool Sword: His dual rapiers.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Rem. They are said to live Happily Ever After after the credits.
  • Declaration of Protection: Deconstructed. His attempt to protect Rem is because of all Class Zero students, she's the only one he thinks he can trust. Along the way, he grows distant and accepts the power that grants him the strength for this purpose, but ironically loses his memories about her because of it. In the end, he's the one who kill her in his amnesia. Twisting the knife of irony further the novel reveals Machina's deep desire to protect Rem was due to the memory of having to murder her himself after she became possessed by Gala and transfomred into the Lusanath Judge in the cycle previous and to do so he had to absorb the Phantoma of the rest of Class Zero himself.
  • Everything Is Better With Spinning: Wields drill-rapiers and has a special attack named Spin Drive.
  • Go Out with a Smile: At the end of the normal ending's Distant Epilogue, 50 years after Class Zero died defeating Cid, and having completed recording their deeds and leading Oriense to the Dawn of an Era, 67-year-old Machina dies with a smile, his wife Rem by his side.
  • He Is All Grown Up: It had been seven years since he and Rem last saw each other and back then Machina was even shorter then her.
  • Keet: Shows some shades of this in the secret ending, as he was last seen dragging off Ace from the Library to play.
  • Life Drain: His Drain Sword attack.
  • Man in White: As a Byakko l'Cie.
  • Manly Tears: Shed these after Rem dies accidentally by his hands, and after he and the revived Rem finds the rest of Class Zero dead, their mission to defeat Cid a bittersweet success.
  • Mask of Power: Qun'mi's helmet.
  • Meaningful Name: Named after the phrase "Deus ex Machina" — "God out of the Machine". Makes a lot of sense once it is revealed that he and Rem are the key to breaking the near-endless cycle of destruction that has trapped Oriense.
  • Mighty Glacier: His attacks are a bit slow but hits hard and the sheer number of hits his Blade Spam can do racks up damage.
  • The Mole: He reports directly the Rubrum council keeping tabs on Class Zero and Arecia. Later he also infiltrates the Milites forces as a Byakko l'Cie but his deteriorating memories caused by the l'Cie power make him a loyal to the Milites Crystal.
  • New Transfer Student
  • Slice-and-Dice Swordsmanship: Machina slashes an awful lot with his rapiers despite them not being edged weapons.
  • Spontaneous Weapon Creation: Machina's Sword Field skill is this combined with Reverse Shrapnel.
  • Tears of Remorse: In the normal ending, he breaks down in these upon finding Class Zero dead from exhaustion in their victory over Cid, apologizing for prejudging them earlier for their failure to save Izana.
  • Reluctant Warrior: Outright fears and despises fighting and war — the same violence that claimed his brother's life.
  • You Killed My Brother: His prejudice of Class Zero is because of Class Zero's involvement in the mission where Izana was killed and had done nothing to stop his death. This very reason is also why he becomes The Mole of Class Zero for the Rubrum Council and pulls a Face-Heel Turn by accepting Milites' l'Cie power.

Rem Tokimiya

Age: 17
Birthday: (Unknown)
Height: 160cm
Weapon: Twin Daggers
Voiced by: Ryōko Shiraishi (JP)

The other lead character together with her childhood friend Machina and, like him, a transferee from Class Seven (indicated by her old pink cape). Conflicted with Machina's head first jump to self-destruction and her loyalty to her nation. Her constellation nature is Love
  • Childhood Friend Romance: With Machina. They are said to have lived Happily Ever After at the end of the normal ending.
  • Dance Battler: With a weapon named Dancing Dagger, it's no surprise really.
  • Dude Magnet: Has a lot of admirers in the Academy for both her looks and her kind personality.
  • Fragile Speedster/Squishy Wizard: Is very fast and one of the most magically adept students, but has weak physical power and low HP.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: In some released screenshots her light brown hair has looked purple, or darker to the point it's almost black.
  • Ill Girl: Suffers from an incurable disease that, according to Arecia, will eventually kill her.
    • Incurable Cough of Death: She gets better, though. In the normal ending, she lives long enough to be by Machina's side when he dies 50 years later, his mission of recording Class Zero's deeds completed; and in the secret ending, her illness seems to have been eliminated altogether, and she was last seen waking up on a bench amidst cherry blossoms and smiling to the heavens.

  • Meaningful Name: Her kanji comes from "rei" and "mu", meaning "Not Zero".
  • New Transfer Student
  • Poor Communication Kills: When she volunteers to be a l'Cie, she has to fight Milites' l'Cie. The problem here is, the enemy l'Cie is Machina, and they don't recognize each other because of Machina's Laser-Guided Amnesia and the fact that Machina is wearing Milites' full body uniform including the mask. She's so close from winning if not for Machina's mask slipping off and distracting her of his rapiers from piercing her. It takes a Deus ex Machina in the form of Arecia for her to get better.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: Her Boomerang Dagger skill.
  • She-Fu: Does a lot of acrobatic motions with her attacks.
  • Silk Hiding Steel

  • The Starscream: He actually wanted to kick Andoria from the throne since a long time ago, and change Concordia back to the time where men were in charge of the nation. At the first sight of Milites' offer for it, he quickly takes the bait.
