"What a cinch."

The main character of Grandia and a third-generation adventurer. Before his death, Justin's father left his son a treasured stone. Justin becomes convinced that the stone is a shard from the legendary Spirit Stone, which the Garlyle Forces is seeking. While meddling in a high-security excavation, Justin stumbles onto a hologram of a woman beckoning him to Alent, a mythical city of the long-dead Angelou civilization. He uses swords, maces and axes in battle.

  • An Axe to Grind: Justin can use axes, and benefits greatly from doing so: leveling up his Axe stat grants him enormous boosts in strength and HP.
  • Accidental Pervert: Feena stops short in a crawlspace on the Ghost Ship, resulting in Justin pawing at her butt. Oops.
  • Chaste Hero: He's pretty slow on the uptake when Feena hits on him. Ironically, the only time Justin gets hot and bothered is when he sees Nana, Saki and Mio in their panties.
  • Determinator: In the tradition of old-school JRPG protagonists. Game Arts intentionally went off in a different direction with II's Ryudo.
  • Disappeared Dad: When Justin was still little, his dad met an untimely end during one of his adventures. The particulars of his death aren't revealed, since his body was never found.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: Justin's Shockwave, Midair Cut, Lotus Cut, Ice Slash and Thor Cut. Spinning makes up half of Justin's special moveset.
  • Goggles Do Nothing / Nice Hat
  • Heroic BSOD: When Feena goes along with Mullen's plan to sacrifice herself to stop Gaia.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: While he can use maces and axes, Justin's best weapon that only he can use is a sword.
  • Improbable Age: He's a savior of the world by the end of the game, and he's just 14.
  • Incendiary Exponent: His Lotus Cut attack, which is a simple flaming slash.
  • Infinity+1 Sword: Justin's final weapon, the Spirit Sword, is also the most powerful weapon in the game.
  • Jumped at the Call: Didn't so much jump at it as somersault over it and land on the other side.
  • Oblivious to Love: He gets it in the end, but it takes him a ridiculous amount of time to realize Feena's confessing to him and he's stupidly adorable about it.
  • Official Couple: With Feena, as shown in the Distant Finale. They've been busy.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Him and Sue are these colors.
  • Power Glows
  • Red-Headed Hero
  • Ship Tease: With Leen, in the Twin Towers.
  • Stab the Sky: His victory pose. Some spells and special moves use it as well.
  • Sword Plant: Done during Dragon Cut and Heaven and Earth Cut special moves.
  • The Pollyanna: Most of the time until his Heroic BSOD in Disc 2.
  • The Unchosen One

Sue and Puffy

"Pretty easy, right, Puffy?"

Sue is Justin's best friend from Old Parm. Orphaned as a baby, she lives with her aunt and uncle. She is always accompanied by Puffy, a gift from Justin's father who brought it from one of his adventures. Sue views herself as Justin's guardian, and resents being treated as a kid. Her weapons of choice are long-distance weapons (such as bows and boomerangs) and maces.


"Ha, ha ha, pretty easy!"

An adventurer whom Justin and Sue meet during their trip to New Parm. Unlike Justin, she is very accomplished and something of a local celebrity. She is later revealed to be Lt. Leen's sister and an Icarian. Feena wields knives and whips.


"You're no match for me."

The "Knight of Dight", Gadwin is a master swordsman who runs into our Heroes on the other side of "The End of the World". Gallant and courageous to a fault, he takes it upon himself to educate Justin in the ways of a knight.


"Come back with reinforcements!"

A humanoid whom Justin and Feena meet once crossing the ocean. He is at first suspicious of them, but they quickly gain his trust. Rapp is extremely arrogant, but this attitude masks his troubled life as an orphan.


"No problem. Whoo!"

A Lainian whom the heroes meet while attempting to destroy the Tower of Doom. They start out on bad terms, but that changes quickly.



Guido is one of the Mogay, a bunny-like merchant race from Zil Padon. He is met a few times throughout the game and later he joins the party temporarily.


"That was an easy victory."

The very person who sent Justin to his quest in the first place. Originally just a spectator with a streak for fatality, our heroes convince her to join them and change her own fate.

    Garlyle Forces 

General Baal (Voiced by Norio Wakamoto in the japanese Version)

Leader of the Garlyle Forces. He seeks out the Spirit Stone to revive Gaia and become a God.

Colonel Mullen

Son of Baal as a result of Interspecies Romance. He helps his father to seek out the Spirit Stones but performs a Heel-Face Turn with rest of the Garlyle Forces against him.

Lieutenant Leen

Col. Mullen's aide-de-camp. Later revealed to be Feena's sister and an Icarian, too.

Nana, Saki and Mio

Nana: "I'll show no mercy!"
Saki: "Watch this!"
Mio: "Well now, die from this nerve gas!"

Recurring Bosses at the Garlyle Forces' service. They all have a crush on Col. Mullen.
