Characters: Infinite Undiscovery
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 BSOD: After Faina and Leif's deaths, he begins to resent lunaglyphs and their users.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He returns later, however.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Kind of a retrospective example; his voice actor also played Faize from Star Ocean: The Last Hope, but it came out later.
- 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 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-Headed Hero
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: Despite his red clothes, he's the blue to Edward's red.
- The Scrappy: In-universe example, mainly due to being a Non-Action Guy surrounded by badasses.
- 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.
Sigmund aka 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.
- Badass: He shatters gigantic, moon-binding chains for a living and has earned the respect of pretty much every important person you encounter. His name is known far and wide throughout the world. Hell, one of his titles is Living Legend.
- Brought Down to Normal: When he willingly had his Lunaglyph removed.
- The Hero
- Heroic Sacrifice
- Identical Stranger: To Capell.
- Living Legend: One of his titles. And, well...
- Capell, He Was Your Father
- 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.
- Red-Headed Hero
- 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
Another member of the Liberation Force, Eugene has known Sigmund since they were both kids.
A mercenary who has known Aya for quite some time.
A hermit whom the party seeks out to help cure Edward's vermification.
The villain of Infinite Undiscovery. He's the son of Empress Svala.
- 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.
- Mask Power
- Too Many Belts
- White Hair, Black Heart
