The main character of Infinite Undiscovery. Capell was raised in a troupe of bards and as such is very skilled at playing the flute. At the beginning of the game he has been captured and thrown in prison, though he has no idea why. Shortly after, he gets saved by Aya. It's soon revealed that he looks exactly like the leader of the Liberation Force.
- Accidental Pervert: Kind of. He accidentally cops a feel on Vic at one point.
- Action Survivor: At the very beginning of the game; he gets plunged into a sweeping conflict that he really wants nothing to do with, but manages to hold his own anyway.
- Badass Normal
- Berserk Button: Insulting or mocking Unblessed is enough to get him angry.
- Character Development: While not as obvious as Edward's, Capell stops thinking in terms of survival as the story progresses. At one point at the beginning of the game he says that the Liberation Force is foolish for running into fights, even if it's because they want to do the right thing; when they reach Port Zala, he runs off to break the chain with the same kind of reckless attitude that he had berated earlier.
- Chick Magnet: By the end of the game, Aya and Faina are in love with him, and Michelle, Vic and Komachi seem to have a thing for him. Though, at least in Michelle and Komachi's cases, this is because he looks like Sigmund.
- Cursed with Awesome: Being an Unblessed allows him to be the only one in the party to see Vermiforms.
- Despair Event Horizon: After Faina and Leif get killed by Vermiforms, Capell hits rock bottom. This is even reflected in the other party members' descriptions, which are all from his point of view.
- Gameplay and Story Segregation: He says he's not any good at fighting... but that doesn't stop him from holding his own and having a few special attacks at the very beginning of the game.
- Generation Xerox: He looks remarkably like his father, Sigmund, who is, by magical quirk, the same age as him.]
- Giver of Lame Names: Capell keeps giving his very pretty songs terrible names, like "The Slovenly Serenade" or "Fleeing Dog Rhapsody". Eventually, Aya just decides she doesn't want to know.
- The Hero: After Sigmund dies.
- Heroic B.S.O.D.: After Faina's and Leif's deaths, he begins to resent lunaglyphs and their users.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He returns later, however.
- Idiot Hero: Not an idiot so much as clueless and uninformed, though one could argue that the latter is due to reasons entirely out of his control. He also gets noticeably more world-weary during his travels and makes less ignorant comments toward the end of the game.
- Magic Music: The melodies he plays from his flute can do things from just sounding nice to curing Vermification.
- The Masquerade: Poses as Sigmund after he dies to keep peoples' hope alive.
- Mistaken Identity: Everyone thinks he's Sigmund. It's why he's captured in the first place.
- Nice Guy
- Non-Action Guy: At first. He's better with a flute than a sword, anyway.
- Only Sane Man
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: They look kind of orange/brown in the concept art, but in the actual game... Averted, because he's a good guy.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Despite his red clothes, he's the blue to Edward's red.
- Tagalong Kid: At first.
Capell's Love Interest, Aya is a fiery and spirited girl who happens to be a princess. She first appears when she comes to save Capell from prison. However, she believed she was saving Lord Sigmund. Needless to say, she is very displeased when she finds out Capell is not who she thought he was. But she helps him out anyway.
- Action Girl: The first thing she does is slit a guard's throat... while doing a back-flip off of him.
- Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Especially at the end of the game.
- Badass Adorable
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Capell for most of the game. It's mostly one-sided, though.
- Bridal Carry: Near the beginning of the game, she is injured and must be carried to safety in this manner.
- Cutscene Power to the Max: She can never flip around on enemies the way she can in the opening cutscene. But she's still pretty badass.
- Every Girl Is Cuter with Hair Decs
- Green-Eyed Monster: Usually when Faina's around Capell.
- Healer Signs On Early: She is the only non-mage to learn any sort of healing magic for precisely this reason.
- Playing with Fire
- Rebellious Princess
- Royals Who Actually Do Something
- Waif-Fu: In the opening cutscene.
- Well, Excuse Me, Princess!
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: She hates bugs/reptiles.

Sigmund / Volsung, King of Casandra
A Rebel Leader called 'The Liberator,' Sigmund is the leader of the Liberation Force. He has taken it upon himself to cut the chains binding the moon to the land, and has inspired others to join him. After he gets his Lunaglyph removed, he can no longer break the chains. It also ultimately leads to his death, as he dies protecting Capell. He was once named Volsung, and was the King of Casandra. He's also actually Capell's father, which explains the whole Mistaken Identity thing. When it was discovered that Capell was an Unblessed, Volsung willingly had his lunaglyph removed, which de-aged him.
- Brought Down to Normal: When he willingly had his Lunaglyph removed.

- Older Than They Look
- Rebel Leader
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Though a much more serious and determined person than Capell (at first, anyway), Sigmund averts this in that he is The Hero and, while not exactly a Nice Guy, he's obviously a good man.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something]
- Shout-Out: He's named after a character from the Völsunga saga. Well, okay, two of them. But still.
- Too Cool to Live
A member of the Liberation Force, Edward uses a gigantic sword in battle. While Aya is merely a Tsundere towards Capell, Edward is an outright Jerkass, verbally berating him at every turn. Eventually, he gets turned into a vermiform, goes crazy, and destroys part of a city. Capell manages to cure Edward before the latter dies of excess power. Afterwards, he realizes how ridiculous he was behaving and decides to mellow out.His voice actor is David Vincent.
- Ascended Fanboy
- BFS: His weapon of choice.
- Break the Haughty: When his Power Increased Lunaglyph goes out of control and he is almost killed.

- Ill Guy: For a short while, right before he goes berserk and tears up a city.
- Jerkass: Towards Capell until his Break the Haughty moment.
- The Lancer: When he eventually accepts Capell as the leader of the group.
- Large Ham: Due to either yelling all the time or saying things really, really dramatically. Notably, he stops doing this (outside of battle, anyway) after his Character Development kicks in.
- Pet the Dog: It's mentioned that he treats Rico and Rucha nicely.
- And he gains a bonus in battle if an ally falls.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Despite his blue clothes, he's the red to Capell's blue.

- Dishing Out Dirt: Eugene is the party's Earth magic specialist.
- The Medic: Compared to Michelle, Eugene lacks the ultimate full-party heal, but does possess the ultimate revival spell.
- Never Speak Ill of the Dead: Played with. It's obvious he has great respect for Sigmund, but after the latter's death, Eugene starts to say how foolish and arrogant Sigmund was in life. He's basically the only one who talks about Sigmund as though he was a human.
- Older Sidekick: To Sigmund. He mentions in a rather obscure conversation that he's at least nine years older than Sigmund.

- Hidden Depths: Sure he's wise and stoic, but he also has an interesting sense of humor. Unfortunately most examples of this can only be found when you connect to either him or certain other people... and it's hard to know when and where these dialogues occur unless you have a guide.
- Specifically, during one connected conversation between Savio and Eugene, Savio goes on a long spiel about how to temper one's inner power and how not to let yourself overuse your lunaglyph... and then advertises his book. And then Capell and Eugene both respond with Visible Silence.

- A God Am I
- The Dragon
- Disc One Final Boss
- Fashion-Victim Villain: Though his clothes really aren't out of place in this setting, his outfit is remarkably similar to Loki's and is just as ridiculous.
- Femme Fatalons: A rare male example.
- Freudian Excuse: It's shown that, as a child, he was very jealous of the attention his mother heaped on the de-aged Sigmund. In the same scene, a familiar, evil-looking silhouette can be seen looming over him...
- Large Ham: For some bizarre reason, his voice actor seems to be channeling a very self-aware, parodic William Shatner. This leads to many stilted, oddly-enunciated line readings, but on the other hand makes him seem like he's not all there, which gives him an overly-theatrical Mad Scientist kind of vibe.

- Pet the Dog: She's very loyal to Leonid. It serves to make her both a Foil to Aya and humanizes her a bit.

- Undying Loyalty: To Leonid.
