     Main Characters 

Prince Leif of Leonster
Class: Lord
The main character of the game. Son of Quan and Ethlyn and Prince of Leonster.
  • Accidental Hero: His quests to free all Thracia only begins because of Raydrik's bearship
  • Berserk Button: Kidnapping both Mareeta both Nanna, her surrogate sisters, is what fangs the plot on
  • Best Years of Your Life: Growing up with Nanna, Mareeta, Othin and Halvan with Eyvel being a surrogate mother
  • Can't Catch Up: He is brought down by both his mediocre base stats, and relatively low stats growth. And it is really easy to get him to level 20 thanks to the limited amount of units in the early stages, and his late arrival promotion bonus is mediocre. However, his massive amount of support bonuses and ability to ignore the fatigue mechanic means he can be very useful in his own right.
  • Disc One Nuke: If you give him the shield, life, and speed rings that you acquired during the first three chapters, Leif will become the strongest unit in the team during Manster, and is essentially a Crutch Character in his own right, thanks to the Res hitting Light Sword, and is a capable unit up until his promotion. This is quite a solid investment, since you don't have access to your Crutch Character (except Eyvel for a very short time) and Manster is arguably the toughest part of the game.
  • The Hero
  • Horrible Judgeof Character: Trusting Raydrik in Chapter 3
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: If not trained with scrolls
  • Just a Kid: Raydrik considers him this
  • King Incognito: He's been forced to spend most of his life in hiding, because neither Travant nor Grannvale would be happy with the legitimate heir threatening their control of the Thracian peninsula.
  • King in the Mountain: A prince that is literally living in a mountain village to hide himself from the corrupted thyrramnical government
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Has some self-worth problems, which are understandable considering his backstory.
  • Hide Your Children: Stays hidden from the clutches of the curropted empire until he is 15 years old and appears to be over with their vacences and camorrisms
  • It's Personal with the Dragon: He loathes and wants to fight and kill Raydrik, not Veld, as he is unaware of the latter involvment into the game's plot
  • Man in White
  • A Protagonist Shall Lead Them
  • Rebel Leader
  • Rebel Prince
  • Red Baron: Sage-Lord
  • Stumbling Upon the Lost Wizard: After many years, and despite having forgotten about him, he meet Asvel, now a Wind Mage, again!
  • Warrior Prince

Class: Lance Knight

A Knight of Leonster who once served Quan and is Leif's guardian. He is also the father of Nanna, Leif's Action Girlfriend.
  • Action-Hero Babysitter: When Leif was still in baby sheets, Finn was both his parental figure and his bodyguard.
  • Ascended Extra: From a mere secondary character to personal advisor and bodyguard to the story Hero
  • Crutch Character: He is as close as one can get to a Jeigan Archetype, if not for being unpromoted and his decent stats progression. While he is a decent unit in capturing and being viable, indoor maps cripple him as his sword rank is E and he is unable to equip his Brave Lance, reducing his luck and Miracle activation.
  • Disc One Nuke: He has good base stats and his Brave Lance turns him into a good capturing unit and a deadly fighter during outdoor chapters. Plus he has a nice HP to boot to fight against the fatigue mechanic, and he has decent enough weapon rank to use some of the better swords during indoor chapters, AND he has a Leadership Star. The only reason he is not that good late game is because the late game chapters are filled by Status Staves and Magic users, and even then he can contribute by having a Leadership Star.
  • Fragile Speedster: His Prayer ability increases his evasion when he is low on health, and his personal weapon, the Brave Lance, allows him to Double Attack, and increases his luck by 10. He also has a Leadership Star. Coupled with supports from Leif and Nanna (which increase his evasion further) and he can be almost unkillable, even at base stats.
  • Implausible Hair Color: Blue hairs
  • The Lancer: To Leif (literally too, as his personal weapon is the Overpowered "Brave Lance", allowing him to be the only character to reach a 90% top chance to NEVER DIE whenever he is attacked by a lethal charging
  • Parental Substitute: To Leif.
  • Older and Wiser: Has grown quite a bit from his Seisen days.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Lampshaded by Selfina and Leif. She reprimands him for being much colder than he used to be, but Leif later says he's just forgotten how to cry after all the shit that hit the fan.
  • Team Dad

Class: Axe Fighter

A hot-blooded member of the Fiana Militia. Best-friends with Halvan.
  • An Axe to Grind: He gets a unique one in the first map, the gamebreaking Pugi!
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Hot headed in contrast to Halvan.
  • Disc One Nuke: Three words. Chapter 1 Pugi.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Unlike most Fighters in the series, he has high HP, acceptable defense, high STR, and an almost overkill based speed with a solid speed growth. Add in Wrath and Pugi and...
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: With Tanya.
  • Those Two Guys: With Halvan. Halvan's laidback and calm personality contrasts with Orsin's wild and hotheaded nature.


Class: Axe Fighter

A calm and cool member of the Fiana Militia. Best-friends with Orsin.
  • Continuity Nod: He can acquire a Brave Axe from his sister, who claimed to get it from a woman near a lake.
  • Disc One Nuke: He gets the Brave Axe, which is acquired in Chapter 1.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Despite being a slightly worse Orsin (or maybe because he is a slightly worse Orsin), he is still one of the best characters in the game.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: He is essentially Orsin without Pugi and Vantage instead of Wrath, an overall worse growth than Orsin but relatively better base stats, and the Brave Axe is not a personal weapon, which means you can give it to Orsin as well. Still a good character in his own right.
  • Those Two Guys: Is kinda this with Orsin.

Class: Swordmaster

Leader of the town of Fiana and its militia: Fiana's Freeblades. Is actually Briggid of Jungby.
  • Action Mom: She is the surrogate mother to Maretta as well as Leif and Nanna. She is also one for Patty and Faval.
  • Badass Decay: She is not as useful as in chapter 1-5 once you get her back later.
  • Crutch Character: She is very strong with her base stats, but she leaves very early for the rest of the game and when you get her back, she is not as strong or useful.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: As Briggid, she wore her Rapunzel Hair loose and with a Martial Arts Headband. As Eyvel, her hair is shorter and in a ponytail).
  • For Want of a Nail: If you don't restore her? Have the Deadlord Draco attacking you in the Last chapter.
    • Foreshadowing: The other five Deadlords in Thracia 776 all share a class with the characters they're created from (or the second-tier class of said characters in the case of Canis and Porcus), but Draco is a Sniper, not a Swordmaster.
  • Ladyin Red
  • Lady of War
  • Mama Bear: Eyvel found young Mareeta locked inside a cage in a slave market; she was so pissed off to see a little girl subjected to slavery that she slaughtered all the traders and guards and promptly adopted her as her own.
  • Missing Mom: To Mareeta, Nanna and Leif for almost all the game
  • Plot Armor: Until she is turned to stone in Chapter 5, Eyvel cannot be killed. To this end, the game will cheat for you and make any attack that would kill her miss instead.
  • Proper Lady:She is much more conservative in how she behaves and dress in comparison to when she was Bridget
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She is the leader of the small village where Nanna, Mareeta, and Leif live.
  • Same Character, but Different: Once she is back to the team, she is the same, but the main difference is that she is not as useful as before
  • Taken for Granite: She's turned to stone in Chapter 5 and stays that way until Chapter 24x.
  • Team Mom: For the group, specially Mareeta and Nanna.
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: As said above, she's Princess Briggid of Jungby but at some point she arrived to Fiana without any memories. Some years after the end of Thracia 776, she recovers her memories and is reunited with the now adult Patty and Faval.
    • Even more: if you save her from being petrified and Finn is still alive, this triggers a conversation in which Finn does recognize her as Briggid and tells her so. However, Eyvel herself is still amnesiac and denies this.

Class: Warrior

The leader of the Purple Dragon Mountain Bandits, albeit reformed thanks to Eyvel.
  • The Alleged Boss: Of the "Reformed Purple Mountain Brigands", yet Gomez, his underling, pretty much leap on him

  • Da Chief: Of Reformed Brigands
  • Dirty Old Man: Poor Marty
  • A Father to His Men: Seen as this by his underlings. Also, his name is an obvious reference to the "Father Of All Gods" in Norrean Mythology

Class: Mage Knight

Leader of a band of Knights from Freege. Younger sister of Reinhardt.

  • Berserk Button: Never ever insult her older brother Reinhardt! Kempf deliberately used this to give her and Fred a Distress Ball.
  • Glass Cannon: Not many can survive her Daim Thunder or Holy Sword, and with Vantage, she can attack before the enemy, which is especially useful combined with Pure Waters. On the other hand, one miss and a few hits is all it take to bring her HP to zero, and Daim Thunder is EXTREMELY heavy.
  • Gamebreaker: If given the Vantage skill and she is equipped with 2x times attack Daim Thunder tomes and is receiving Charm/Support bonuses, she is pretty much invincible unless she faces any enemy with a % chance to deflect or avoid an attack in its totality
  • Infinity+1 Sword: Has one, the Holy Sword, which she can get by talking to Reinhardt in Chapter 22. The requirement is MUCH easier said than done.
  • Magic Knight: Can use both swords and magic, as mentioned above; but contrary to Eyrios, the other recruitable character of this class, she's less balanced and more of a mounted Squishy Wizard.
  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: Either her, the glasscannon, or Eyrios, the tank
  • My God, What Have I Done?: The poor girl has a severe Heroic B.S.O.D. like this when she learns that the Freege army is conducting the child hunts.

  • The Chick
  • Cute Bruiser
  • Damsel in Distress: In chapter 5, where she can fight back, but her enemies are so much more skilled than her that she will win only if she delivers the last hit or lucks out a critical attack using the magical 2 ranged spell from her sword, as the enemies faced in the arena will have 0 magic defense
  • Deuteragonist: She is the closest to such a role, and still has very little screentime

  • Distress Ball: What sets the action off is her and Nanna's kidnapping.

  • Missing Mom: She lost her biological mom right after she was born.
  • Plucky Girl
  • Power Tattoo: The Odo Mark on her shoulder is what allows her and anyone that has the same tatoo to possess higher potential at swordmastering
  • Shipper on Deck: Ships Leif/Nanna, and if the three are alive by the time the Final Battle hits, she'll encourage Nanna to tell him her feelings.
    Mareeta: "Go on, Lady Nanna! Just say it!"
    Nanna: "B-But..."
    Mareeta: "You'll regret it forever if you don't say it now. Or do you just want to stay as his 'cute little sister'?"
    Nanna: "But Mareeta..."

Duchess Linoan of Tahra

Class: Sister

The young woman who's in charge of the free city of Tahra. Also a descendant of Heim, thus in-story she has minor Naga blood.


Class: Hero

A mercenary against the Empire.


Class: Mage Knight

A Knight of Freege. Dreams of becoming a noble.
  • The Aloner: This is how he is meant to be played: a character that is very durable that can be sent to solo missions
  • Ambition Is Evil: In his case, it's more like "Ambition makes you a Jerk Ass sometimes".
  • Authority in Name Only: In his ending he is destitute of his position to become a simple watchman
  • Berserk Button: Hates when Karin calls him "Olson".
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Combined with Don't You Dare Pity Me! in his recruitment conversation, in regards to his low birth.
  • Game Breaker: If it is waited until he is obtained, by consuming the Wrath skill on him it is possible to have a character with a 60% top chance to avoid ANY form of deadly attack whenever he is attacked + the constant chance to counter kill in one hit almost anything (preferibly with a magic tome for 1-2 range attack) while having a 20% (25% if using the rare "Thunder Sword) to obtain back the amount of damage dealt to the enemy back to him
  • Glory Seeker: He wants to demonstrate everyone that a mere commoner like him can be as worthy, if more, a blue-blooded patrician.
  • Guide Dang It: His recruitment. In order to recruit him, not only does Olwen has to not be recruited or died, but also has to be recruited by Karin. The game never mention recruiting him with her or why her of all people.
  • Lightning Bruiser: His stats are so massive, sometime you wonder why' exactly he has to feel inferior. To clarify, he can wield any kind of swords and thunder tomes (including the Bolting), despite an initial massive loss to speed for the most powerful swords and a constant loss of speed due to the high-power, heavy mental weight magic toms; has solid double range offense (which can be augmented with Holy Water and Magic Swords); high starting speed allows him to be both evasive both doubling most but the fastest enemies; solid growth rate complements very well with the powerful Crusaders Scroll, allowing him to easily become a better mage through the constant increase of magic; his defensive parameters, finally, are complemented parameter by starting high HP and good physical defence. And to ennoble this valiant if vulnific antesignary even more, he has the very sought after Sol and Prayer flairs as his default skills. By adding Put simply, having Staff is the only thing he missed from everything that make a good unit in this game.

  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: Either him, the tank, or Olwne, the glasscannon
  • One-Man Army: Can be sent to deal with numerous, dangerous enemies all by himself with a very high rate of success, even more if gifted with the Wrath skill and it is using Wind Tomes
  • Shock and Awe: Is a (really powerful) Magic Knight and his speciality is Thunder Magic.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Especially in his ending.


Class: Priest

A priest from Edda, known as the "Eyes of Claud".

  • Action Girl
  • Defector from Decadence: Joins the Army despite knowing it's not a good one, since she's taking care of the kids in an orphanage.

  • Broken Bird: One that instead of being bitter and cynical, is distracted and pretty much a...

  • Evil Nephew: She is the exact opposite of her grandfather
  • Extraordinarily Empowered Girl: Direct, non-violent, light-hearted heir to one of the most powerful evil wizards of the world, yet if she is required to fight, she will sunder everything in her path by excellently using all for of magics
  • For Want of a Nail: Make sure you recruit her and don't get her killed off. Or not only will you lose the chance to save Eyvel, but she'll end up as the Deadlord Canis, a Magical Girl Warrior on the enemy's side that can pack quite the magical punch. (Okay, so you'll still fight Canis if this doesn't happen, but Sara!Canis is a lot more powerful than normal!Canis.)

  • Magikarp Power: Starts underlevelled... but with amazing staff rank, Elite, and a massive growth rate. And this is before you realize that she promotes into a Sage, one of the best classes in the game.
  • Meekness Is Weakness: Averted, she is the best character in the game
  • Mystical Waif: She claims that she could hear Eyvel's voice in her mind and that's why she wants to join Leif, because Eyvel, having been cursed by the Stone Spell of Veld, something Sara can directly perceive and counteract, is a close acquintance of the Lord she is facing.
  • The Ojou: She's first seen talking to an enemy, who refers to her as "Lady Sara". This is because Manfloy keeps her around due to her being his heir of sorts.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Almost touching the ground
  • Required Party Member: Only her presence and the possession of the Stone Dispelling "Kia Staff" will gain you access to Chapter 24x, allowing you to rescue a mentor to the protagonist.
  • Psychic Children: She can hear the thoughts of whichever person has been cursed by the crsed "Stone" spell tome, as she is the key to counteract it (only if she possessed the National Treasure "Kya" staff)
  • Oracular Urchin: She can perceive other people emotions
  • The Resenter: She feels much variation and loathes her grandfather for having shambled her family
  • Staring Kid: She stares at Leif in the Route B Chapter 16 while hiding in the forest, and Leif has to talk to her to make her join his cause
  • Supernatural Sensitivity
  • Superpower Lottery: Sorta. Sara has three skills that are extremely good when combined: Wrath (all attacks are Critical hits when at Counter), Prayer (evades most lethal blows depending on luck *3), and Elite (gains double experience). She has the ability to use staves (which is a massive Superpower Lottery when it comes to Thracia 776), and a high base staff rank. On top of it, she has VERY high Luck, Skill, Magic, and Speed, promotes into a Sage, and only she can handle a very rare staff that will let you save Eyvel, and thus avert having her turned into a Dreadlord. If not for her low HP and Defense.... If she is given to hold the HP + Defence boosting scrolls and the "Sun Skill" tome is used on her, she becomes a thorough gamebreaker, easily the strongest fighting + utility unit in the game, followed only by Eyrios (if this one is used the Wrath skill upon) regarding fighting enemies
  • Woman in White
  • Women Are Delicate: The exact opposite of Tanya, as seen in the official artwork
  • Yamato Nadeshiko
  • You Killed My Father: To Manfloy.

Princess Miranda of Alster

Class: Mage

The Princess of Alster, who has led a very harsh life.
  • Action Girl
  • Arranged Marriage: Her advisors want one of these between her and Leif, but she doesn't like the idea since they tell her such things solely because she's a girl. She does consider it since Leif is a decent guy, but tells him to fight and finish the war first. And their endings say Leif either married Nanna or stayed single if she died and and that Miranda was Happily Married to someone else (who may or may not be her loyal knight Conomool), anyway.
  • Badass Princess: She has studied fire magic and once promoted as a Magic Horse Knight, she can summon Incendiary Meteor from the sky!
  • Benevolent Mage Ruler
  • Broken Bird: She's been badly, badly broken by her father's murder and the hardships she went through afterwards.
  • Can't Catch Up: She is joined in the same lever as Sara, but with "Wrath" as her only skill and none of the utility of the deadly mastermind's niece. Still, if given a chance to shine (mostly by pumping her with the 2x gaining experience "Elite" and stocking all the relevant growths increasing that will improve her weak points, those being HP and defense), she will be a very strong set in the player's build-up
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: Averted: she's the princess of Alster, but still goes to lots of crap.
  • Fallen Princess: She hails from the fallen kingdom of Alster.
  • Magical Girl Warrior —> Lady of Black Magic: She has quite good Magic and can grow into this.
  • Magic Meteor: Once promoted, she will immediately have access to Meteor tomes, making her the first naturally available long-range fire magic attacker in Route B.
  • May–December Romance: In her ending, Miranda is said to have married "a certain knight". It's believed that said knight was Conomool, who is quite older than her.
  • Plucky Girl: She won't stop at anything to restore her kingdom
  • Spirited Young Lady - Well, Excuse Me, Princess!: A young noblewoman with quite the spunk.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: To Leif, for running away at first which caused the death of her father.
  • Woman in White
  • Zettai Ryouiki: In some illustrations, she has long thigh high socks plus a white dress with deep leg slits


Class: Swordsmaster

A mercenary from Silesia who impersonates Prince Shanan of Issac.
  • Body Double: To Shanan, upon Shanan's own request. He doesn't fool Shanan's allies, though.
  • The Cameo: He appears in Holy War, during a secret conversation that involve Femina
  • Casanova Wannabe
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: He pretends to be a very powerful prince fighting for the right of freedom, yet he is merely a leech to his name.
  • Joke Character: He teaches Mareeta a powerful skill by mere fluke, and in gameplay his actual true worth lies in his Bargain skill that lets him buy items at half price. Shanam isn't a fighter, he's a shopper.
  • Paper Tiger: He poses as Shannan but has the worst base stats as a Level 1 Swordmaster and has the weirdest growths (50% to HP, Strength, and Speed, 5% everything else).
  • Secret Art: The bull he feeds Mareeta with is enough to have her learn a very overpowered skill in the form of "Astra".
  • The Slacker
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome
  • Unlucky Everydude: If recruited with Homer, he will deem himself such as this and repine on it
  • Very Punchable Man: Both in-story (he is a petty sham) both gameplay-wise (terrible at everything)

  • Broken Bird: The guilt she feels over her past is eating her on the inside...
  • Combat Medic: Has a pretty decent Sword rank when she joins in (the downside being her low Strength which can be fixed with the right scroll) and can use staves (even if just at C levels).
  • Heel–Face Turn: Route A only
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: At first, but she can be talked out of it by Sleuf
  • My Greatest Failure: She wishes to die because of the action she as committed in the name of the Empire
  • Implausible Hair Color: She is in her early 30 and her hairs are white already!
  • Mutually Exclusive Party Members: Either her, the fighting supportive paladin, or Conomool, the not-to-useful in late-game all-arounder paladin
  • Valkyrie: She is effectively one

A Knight of Alster who fights for the Empire to ensure Miranda's safety.

  • Blood Knight

  • Cool Old Guy: Though questionable in-game, the Official Artworks depict him with grey hairs and more pronounced face wrinkles
  • Disappeared Dad/Parents as People: He tried raising Mareeta alone after her mom died in childbirth, and they were doing fine until he once got distracted and little Mareeta was caught by slave drivers. Additionally, if he's recruited and Eyvel is saved from petrification, he decides to leave Mareeta with her since he believes he's too bloodstained by his revenge quests, though he promises to visit her at least once a year.
  • The Dreaded: So much so that even Ced, who wields Forseti, is weary of fighting him!
  • Eleventh Hour Ranger
  • For Want of a Nail: If he's not recruited, the playeers will see him as Deadlord Bovis.
  • Fallen Prince: Was the prince of Rivough, a small kingdom invaded by Isaac).
  • Good Scars Evilscars: He and Mareeta have marks of Odo on their backs.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Ditches the evil empire the moment he is talked by his long lost daughter, having found a goal in life much more life-blood than mercilessly harvest human lives for money

  • Implacable Man: Once he activates Astra, he will slash many arrays of slashes until the enemies either dies or is luck y enough to be sturdy

  • The Big Bad Shuffle:: Works for Veld.
  • Bodyguard Betrayal: Apparently he pulled this on Leif's grandpa.
  • The Dreaded
  • Evil Weapon: His Lopto Sword. It can also be wired from him by having a very fast thief give him a ranged weapon or magic, so that he will use that instead of the sword, reducing his magic to 8, so that Tina can easily pilfer it from him if her magic equals 9 or more
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • The Quisling/Les Collaborateurs: Was originally the general of Conote before he betrayed Manster and sided with the Grandbell empire. He was eventually made the Duke of Manster under the empire's rule.

  • Opportunistic Bastard
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Approving a child hunt
  • Sadist: Forcing a mother to lethally fight against a magically enslaved close relative.
  • No Sell: Only 4 units in the game can possibly hurt him, and if you don't have them or you have forgotten to obtain a specific sword for Leif, you cannot win the game as he is undefeatable.
  • The Trickster: Very crafty with words and machinations
  • This Cannot Be!!: His exact words when he is defeated the first time, as he wouldn't expect any of the good guys to prevail the shield of the Lopto sword.
  • Villainby Default: The moment he appears, the first jest he does, the very first sentence he exclaim, nobody can mistake him for a decent individual.
  • Villain Decay: Averted, as once he dies, he is resurrected as an empty shell with WRATH as his personal skill, meaning that attacking him at 1-range without the Awareness skill available to the attacker is calling for really bad news. However, he literally "decays" as he returns as a magical-embued revenant.

  • My Country, Right or Wrong: At first, but she can be talked out of it by Sleuf
  • Shock and Awe: Again, Daim Thunder.

  • Tall, Dark and Handsome
