Character sheet for Gloria Union. WIP. Contains unmarked spoilers.
The Gloria Pirates
IshutThe hero of the story, an aspiring pirate who adventures with his childhood friend Pinger. When he meets Ruru and Elisha, he decides to join Gloria and seek out the treasures of Euforia, and becomes a pawn in various world powers' gambits to get their hands on Euforia's power. He is the reincarnation of the king of Euforia, and was originally a citizen of Lukia, though he was smuggled out of their castle at a young age and lived as an ordinary boy. He has immense Will, and his sword is capable of releasing Euforia's super-powerful cards and controlling Euforia itself.While brash, silly, a little slow on the uptake, and ignorant as to the meaning of "volume control", Ishut is nonetheless a good kid who cares about his friends.Voiced by Hiro Shimono.
PingerIshut's childhood friend and only flunky, who has been with him ever since he saved her from Velgas' bullying when they were little. She is much more intelligent and calmer than Ishut, and continually snarks at him and teases him affectionately although her loyalty to him is absolute.She is actually a chimera, an alchemically created artificial beastman, who was kidnapped and experimented on by Tracey in order to make her a marketable rarity. When Tracey discovered that natural beastmen existed, she abandoned Pinger, who then found her way to Ishut. While Pinger seems to be comfortable with her identity and continually makes cat puns, she still holds a deep grudge against Tracey.Voiced by Emiri Katou.
RuruA mysterious girl who falls from the sky in a capsule and offers to lead Ishut to Euforia. She is capable of sensing the Will of the crystals. Ruru has an extremely childish personality, and tends to shock people with her babyish behavior and her diet of ancient relics. She is known as the compass to Euforia, and various influential people attempt to kidnap her along with Ishut.Unbeknownst to her, Ruru is Symphonia, the humanoid robot who has become known as Euforia's greatest weapon. She alone is capable of processing and integrating inhuman Will into energy, and is very powerful; she can also serve as the control unit and core of Euforia.Voiced by Kana Hanazawa.
ElishaSecond-in-command of the Gloria pirates and Zazarland's daughter, who has become hyper-competent in order to compensate for her father's laziness and drunken habits. She comes to rescue Ishut and company and invites them to join Gloria on her father's orders, and behaves as someone to look up to for the rest of the crew. Elisha is a renowned sharpshooter who uses two pistols, and has a reputation of being a terrifying hardass who holds the reins on the Gloria. She also takes care of the team's finances.Voiced by Shizuka Ito.
ZazarlandElisha's father, and the captain of the Gloria. He has a reputation for being immensely powerful (when he isn't plastered) and A Father to His Men, even insisting that every member of his crew call him "Oyaji", or "old man". He knows a lot more than he's telling about Ishut and Ruru, but continually puts off explaining anything to anyone, even refusing to tell Elisha who her mother was.Seventeen years ago, he was a general in Lukia's army, and was good friends with Gariored and Enryetta. He split ways with them due to their differing views and raised Elisha to be a strong woman and a believer in freedom, and thinks that the freewheeling philosophy of pirates is much more conducive to peace than controlling the world through absolute power or making huge sacrifices. He intends to keep Gariored and Enryetta from getting their hands on Euforia's power.Voiced by Keiji Fujiwara.
Minnesota GreyAn archaeologist (and certified professor!) whom the party meets in Black Fang's hideout. After a misunderstanding brought on by Ruru's eating relics, he joins them, and provides input on history and geography throughout the story. He is also obsessed with mannerliness, and tends to judge people based on how polite they are or aren't. 26 years old.Voiced by Shinji Kawada.
LocomocoA little girl who traveled to this world because she wanted to see Symphonia just once. Despite being very childish and naive, she's also incredibly powerful because she comes from Yumira, "the world of magic". Her magic is candy-based, and she is capable of using strong spells just by licking her lollipop staff. Locomoco joins the party after being rescued from Tracey. She gets along well with Raspberry.Voiced by Ai Nonaka.
RaspberryA sixteen-year-old vampire who came to this world in order to apprehend Rogan and bring him back to the Underworld. It's her job to take care of cases like his and look after the dead as they work to repent for their sins; however, she's very stressed-out and terrified of her boss. She joins up with the party in order to capture Rogan, and is good friends with Locomoco due to their status as outsiders.Voiced by Minori Chihara.
FiebeeA young knight of Chantier, who left her homeland to try to find reinforcements so that her country's war with Lukia might end. She is short-tempered, stern, and honorable, and extremely loyal to Giselle. She's fairly young and has never actually seen Chantier before it was polluted with war debris.Voiced by Ayaka Shimizu.
YggdraA gatling gun-wielding, trigger-happy bounty hunter who's awfully similar to that other Yggdra. She is exclusive to the A route's version of chapter 4, and joins the party after attacking Gloria because she finds the bounty on Ishut to be too suspicious. She hates Lukia almost as much as Fiebee, and works as a bounty hunter in order to compensate for the cost of caring for her gun, the Centurio Buster, which she inherited from her father Ordene. She gets along well with Elisha.Voiced by Mai Nakahara.
GangrA little yellow-orange robot who joins the party in the game's B route. Was originally meant to be the guardian of the earth ruins.Voiced by Naoya Nosaka.
KamuruAn inexperienced Lukian knight who seeks refuge with the party after accidentally disgracing himself and being slated for execution by Melanie. He is very earnest and enthusiastic, but at the same time unused to the battlefield and somewhat meek, so he forces himself to behave like a Screaming Warrior to keep from losing his nerve. He respects everyone in Gloria a great deal, and has a crush on Elisha, who he refers to as "Shishou"note .Voiced by Ryouta Asari.
Anne CormackThe captain of the Charmnote Pirates, a lady pirate who's well-known for her greed and her sex appeal. She fights with the party a few times early in the story when she's employed by Black Fang, but otherwise maintains a relationship of intense one-upmanship with Elisha, who she initially doesn't get along with. She is Tracey's younger sister, and one of the few people who really understands her.Although she spends a good part of the storyline squabbling with Elisha, the two are able to reconcile and become friends after teaming up to defeat Rogan when he starts sexually harassing Anne.Voiced by Aki Nakajima.
EaterA self-proclaimed traveling minstrel with two oppositely-gendered personalities who joins Gloria in search of inspiration for her lyrics, having written all the songs she can about Gulcasa and Gram Blaze already. This is her second appearance in the series.Voiced by Minori Chihara.
PamelaThe Dept Heaven series mascot, who is traveling the multiverse to study various mysterious phenomena.Voiced by Ai Nonaka.
AshleyIshut's older twin brother. He is the emperor of Lukia, but is effectively a figurehead, as Gariored is really the one in charge of the country. Despite this, he is adored by the populace, who see him as a tragic figure and are very protective of him. The same as Ishut, he is the reincarnation of the king of Euforia, and has the same powers and sword.He spent his entire life being horribly abused by Gariored, and due to that and his training to use his powers, he is emotionally stunted and resentful towards Ishut, who was spared the hell he went through. Noting that Euforia's name comes from the word "euphoria", he believes that if he receives Euforia's power he will be able to become happy.Voiced by Hiro Shimono.
GarioredPrime Minister of Lukia, formerly one of its generals. He believes that the world can only be saved through absolute power being used to scare people straight, and fights in order to obtain the power of Euforia for himself. He raised Ashley, treating him as an empty doll that had no use other than to unlock Euforia and the cards for him; this generally comes back to bite him in the ass.He is the childhood friend of Zazarland and Enryetta, and is implied to have been in a romantic relationship with Enryetta at least in the past.Voiced by Kosuke Takaguchi.
GarmLeader of the first platoon of the Lukia military. He's said to be an extremely reliable and honorable man. He joined the military ten years ago, and having borne witness to the hardships Ashley has gone through is very protective of him.Voiced by Tsuguo Mogami.
MelanieLeader of the third platoon of Lukia's army. She's more of a hardass than Garm, as evidenced by her attempting to execute Kamuru when he runs away from battle and therefore sullies the honor of the knights, but is devoted to Ashley for the same reasons as Garm. She and Garm often attack in tandem.Voiced by Aki Nakajima.
EnryettaPresident of the Elmare alliance, childhood friend of Zazarland and Gariored, and Elisha's mother. She was raised from childhood to have an absolute will, and she has come to believe that sacrifice is what is necessary to bring peace. The seventeen years she's spent alone working towards her goal have twisted her intentions, and she has decided that she will be the judge and decide who will be sacrificed, becoming very self-righteous.She's implied to have been in romantic relationships with both Gariored and Zazarland before, and claims that part of what she wants to do is stop Gariored because she cares about him.Voiced by Mai Nakahara.
GiselleQueen of Chantier. A hundred years ago, she rejected the Lukia emperor's proposal, setting off the war between their nations; now that Lukia is gaining more and more power, her spirit is broken, and she is willing to cooperate with her enemy and attack the heroes if it will get Lukia to agree to a cease-fire. Fiebee and the people of Gloria are able to convince her not to lose hope and to join up with Enryetta, but she is exhausted and dies in battle there.Voiced by Ayaka Shimizu.
Ajo GraforA rather demented scientist who is researching robotics and attempting to perfect the technology necessary to create cyborgs by experimenting on various unwilling humans. His favorite creation is the Ruru Mk-2, a Palette Swap of the original Ruru with no emotions, which he refers to as his daughter. He has little respect for human rights and will generally do anything For Science!. He is initially thought to be in the employ of Lukia, but it turns out that he was actually hired to do research for Elmare.Voiced by Ryouta Asari.
Tracey CormackLeader of the Leverage merchants. She is an acclaimed alchemist and loves everything rare and marketable, and was the one to resurrect Rogan and Velgas, as well as the one who turned Pinger into a chimera and tried to kidnap Locomoco. Apparently she originally got into alchemy as a way to create a cure-all, but after a number of failures just got drunk on power and started fooling around with living things against their will for money and for the lulz. Like Ajo, she is implied to be in the employ of Elmare. She is ultimately killed by Pinger.Voiced by Eri Gouda.
KyraThe last survivor of Euforia, who has slept alongside it for the past thousand years, waiting for someone to revive it again. Also happens to be intergender. Kyra is the creator of the six cheater cards and Ruru, and appears before the party to explain why Euforia fell and try to keep them from interfering with the city's revival. Sie has an extremely blunt personality and is rather ambivalent towards both Ishut and Ashley, eventually choosing to go back into hibernation so as to let the new generations decide what to do with Euforia.Voiced by Shizuka Ito.
RoganAn eccentric undead pirate who was dragged out of the Underworld by Tracey. Although he wasn't the original target of Tracey's spell, Rogan is still thrilled to be alive again, as he considers this a second chance to enjoy life as a pirate. He's also as petrified of Raspberry's boss as she is, which seems to be another contributing factor.Voiced by Tsuguo Mogami.
BlackmoreLeader of the very large pirate group Black Fang, which has a long history of strife with Gloria. He's Velgas' boss, and gains the team's eternal hatred for stabbing Velgas In the Back to try to kill Ishut; after a long chase, he is brought down by Gloria, then killed by Gariored when he tries to barter for his life by giving the party information.Voiced by Naoya Nosaka.
VelgasIshut's and Pinger's childhood friend, who has known Ishut for ten years. He has a long-standing crush on Pinger that he only seems able to express through pigtail pulling, which has only made Pinger despise him and cling to Ishut more. Velgas resents Ishut for this and for being strong enough to fight honestly instead of having to resort to trickery, and joined Black Fang in order to defeat Ishut once and for all. He is killed by Blackmore early into the game, but is later revived and turned into a cyborg by Tracey and Ajo Grafor.Voiced by Anri Katsu.
