     Main Characters 

Prince Leif of Leonster

Class: Lord
The main character of the game. Son of Quan and Ethlyn and Prince of Leonster.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation: Has some self-worth problems, which are understandable considering his backstory.
  • Man in White
  • Red Baron: Sage-Lord

Finn

Class: Lance Knight

A Knight of Leonster who once served Quan and is Leif's guardian.
  • Badass
  • Disc One Nuke: Good base stats and Brave Lance turns him into a good capturing unit and a deadly fighter during outdoor chapters, 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.
    • Crutch Character: Interesting to note that he is as close as you can get to a Jeigan Archetype if not for being unpromoted and his decent stats progression.
  • 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.
  • 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

Orsin

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.

Halvan

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 Ambush 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.

Eyvel

Class: Swordmaster

Leader of the town of Fiana and its militia: Fiana's Freeblades. Is actually Briggid of Jungby.
  • Action Girl
  • Crutch Character
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: She is the leader of the small village where Nanna, Mareeta, and Leif live.
  • 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.

Dagda

Class: Warrior

The leader of the Purple Dragon Mountain Bandits, albeit reformed thanks to Eyvel.
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Crutch Character: Another one, his growth is almost as bad as Eyvel, but unlike Eyvel, he stays longer and is better able to capture units.
  • For Want of a Nail: Careful! Don't skip chapter 8X of he'll become Deadlord Tigris.
  • Mighty Glacier: 9 Speed is not that high, but a base of 43 HP and 10 Defense right gtom chapter 1 is MASSIVE. As a comparison, the only recruitable character who comes close to match, or outright beat his base durability are Eyrios(an optional, route locked character), Xavier(a That One Sidequest), and Galzus(an Eleventh Hour Ranger). Thankfully, his speed is enough to double the majority of the underpowered enemies in this game.

Tanya

:
Class: Bow Fighter

Dagda's daughter. Quarrels with Orsin often.

Marty

Class: Brigand

A member of the Purple Dragon Mountain Bandits.
  • Gentle Giant: Marty has one of the constitutions in the game and his ending even mentions his gentle nature.
  • Stone Wall: Marty's defense, build, and hp are really, really good. On the flipside, his Skill and speed are really, really poor.

Ronan

:
Class: Bow Fighter

A hunter from the village of Iss. Joins the party when defending it from Pirates.

Safy

Class: Priest

A priestess from the Free City of Tahra.

Lifis

Class: Thief

The leader of a band of pirates who attacks villages on the coasts of eastern Thracia. A bit of a sleazeball.

Machyua

Class: Sword Fighter

A member of the Magi Squad, an anti-Empire rebellion group.
  • Action Girl
  • An Axe to Grind: When a Hero.
  • Battle Couple: With Brighton.
  • Tomboy: Has a more masculine looking appearance compared to the other female swordfighters, and is the only one that can promote to Hero, which is typically a male-only class, and is the 2nd one of only 7/9 females in the series to use axes.

Brighton

Class: Axe Knight

Another member of the Magi Squad, was formerly a Manster Knight before joining.
  • An Axe to Grind
  • Battle Couple: Implied with Machyua, as they marry in their endings.
  • Crutch Character: He is the guy who keeps your team alive in Manster. Post-Manster, he is still solid, but not as necessary as before.
  • Defector from Decadence: He was once a knight of Manster, but he deserted and joined the Magi Squad in order to change things for the better.
  • Mighty Glacier: Has especially high HP and Build. And with Wrath, he is really good at taking hits and dealing it in the opponent's turn.
  • Younger than They Look: According to the official site, he is 23. He looks as if he was in his 30's.

Kein

Class: Lance Knight

Another Knight of Leonster. Both of his parents died in battle.

Alva

Class: Lance Knight

A Knight of Leonster. Friends with Kein.
  • Blade on a Stick: Even though he's a lance knight, he curiously has a higher rank in swords, whichů ...he can only use dismounted...
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners and Those Two Guys: With Kein
  • Out of Focus: His only lines are his escape quote and his death quote, making it possible to play through the entire game without hearing a single word out of him.

Robert

Class: Arch Knight

Yet another Knight of Leonster.

Fred

Class: Paladin

A Knight of Freege and Olwen's right-hand man.

Olwen

Class: Mage Knight

Leader of a band of Knights from Freege. Younger sister of Reinhardt.
  • Action Girl and Lady of Black Magic: She can use both Swords and Offensive Magic.
  • 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 Ambush, 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.
  • 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.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: The poor girl has a severe Heroic BSOD like this when she learns that the Freege army is conducting the child hunts.
    "This... This is the child hunting? I heard rumors, but I never thought they were actually doing it... This is terrible... Is this... Is this what my country has been doing!?"
  • Na´ve Newcomer: Is mocked by Kempf for being a fresh recruit in the Freege army.
  • Shock and Awe: Daim Thunder.

Mareeta

Class: Sword Fighter

Eyvel's adopted daughter. The unwilling owner of the Darkness Blade.

Salem (Seiram)

Leader of the Dandelion Gang out of Dakia Forest.

Trewd

Class: Sword Fighter

A member of the Dandylions.

Tina

Class: Priest

Safy's younger sister. Was caught by Pahn and forced to stay with them.

Glade

Class: Duke Knight

A Knight of Leonster and husband of Selfina and friend of Finn.

Dean

Class: Dragon Knight

A dragon rider from Thracia sent by Areone to protect Linoan.
  • Bodyguard Crush: He seems to have feelings for his master's fiancee Linoan, who he was entrusted to guard. She seems to like him back, but they don't stay together.
  • Blade on a Stick: Is given a unique lance, the Dragon Spear, by his master Areone.
    • Vendor Trash: The Dragonspear is reduced to this in the later chapters due to dismounting.
  • Brother-Sister Team: Eda, a fellow Dragon Rider, is also his little sister.
  • Dragon Rider: The first recruitable Male Dragon Knight in the series.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Even without the Dragon Lance, Dean has amazing stats and flies. With the Dragon Lance, he is basically a flying counterpart to Finn. And he's not bad with swords either thanks to his A rank swords.
  • Humble Hero: Makes many sacrifices for his ideals and refuses to stand out among others. Lampshaded by Eda and Linoan.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: To Linoan
  • Tall, Dark and Handsome
  • What Could Have Been: There was a scene planned where Areone kills Dean for his relationship with Linoan.

Eda

Class: Dragon Rider

Dean's younger sister and fellow dragon rider.

Homeros (Homer)

Class: Bard

A wandering bard who is a bit of a womanizer and lush.
  • Handsome Lech: Nanna recruits him by slapping him when he offers her a drink.
  • Healing Hands: Upon promotion.
  • Light 'em Up: His main weapons are light tomes. But since there are few of these in Jugdral...
    • Blow You Away: If you give him Wind tomes instead, he will use them to quite the benefit of the group.
  • Magikarp Power: Thankfully, he is a Mage with Elite and having Sage as his promotion. Many considered him a prime example of how to be an underlevelled character and get away with it.
  • The Alcoholic: Heavily implied, at least in his dialogue with Nanna.
  • The Storyteller and Wandering Minstrel: In his ending, which makes him famous in Jugdral.

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.

Ralph

Class: Hero

A mercenary against the Empire.

Eyrios

Class: Mage Knight

A Knight of Freege. Dreams of becoming a noble.
  • Ambitionis Evil: In his case, it's more like "Ambition makes you a Jerk Ass sometimes".
  • 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.
  • 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), has solid offense (which can be augmented with Holy Water and Magic Swords), high speed, solid growth rate, and his defensive parameter is almost twice the durability of Olwen. And to make it better, he has the very sought after Sol and Prayer as his default skills. Put simply, having Staff is the only thing he missed from everything that make a good unit in this game.
  • Shock and Awe: Is a (really powerful) Magic Knight and his speciality is Thunder Magic.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Especially in his ending.

Sleuf

Class: Priest

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

Misha

Class: Pegasus Knight

A mercenary from Silesia who fights to earn money for orphans.
  • 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.
  • Like Mother Like Daughter: Averted. She's the daughter of Deet'var, but makes a point about how her mom's death at the hands of Sigurd's group has nothing to do with her motivations.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Is told this by Karin and August for putting the Silesian kids's needs over the whole world, though to be fair she didn't know about the child hunts.
  • Zettai Ryouiki

Sara

Class: Sister

A strange young girl with ties to the Lopto Sect. More exactly, she is the granddaughter and heir of... none other than Manfroy. She decides to side with Leif and his group instead.
  • Broken Bird: One that instead of being bitter and cynical, is distracted and pretty much a...
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander:
    Oh, are you from the Liberation Army? Did she say something to you? Please forget it. She mumbles strange things from time to time. She can be an odd girl at times.
  • 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.)
  • Mad Arch Bishop's Beautiful Granddaughter: Manfloy is her gramps, and he killed Sara's father when her mom was pregnant with her. Sara despises him as a result.
  • Magical Girl Warrior: Considering she has three of the best skills in the game, she can become a deadly force in battle.
  • 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.
  • Mystical Waif: She claims that she could hear Leif's voice in her mind and that's why she wants to join him.
  • 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.
  • Superpower Lottery: Sorta. As said before, 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), 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...
  • Woman in White
  • You Killed My Father: To Manfloy.

  • Heroic Bastard: The illegitimate child of Emperor Arvis and one of his allies, Aida.
  • Heroic Lineage: Arvis's son, nuff said. He was also speculated to be the one holding major Fala blood in the current generation, since his half-siblings Julius and Julia are major Lopt and major Naga, respectively. This was confirmed in Fire Emblem Awakening.
