[[folder:Bracer Guild]]

!Estelle Bright

->'''Introduced in:''' First Chapter
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AkemiKanda (Japanese), Creator/StephanieSheh (game), Creator/BrittneyKarbowski (anime) (English)

The cheerful heroine of Trails in the Sky. A newbie Bracer, and the daughter of the legendary adventurer Cassius Bright. Uses a quarterstaff in combat.
* ActionGirl: Almost the ''quintessential'' Action Girl. Estelle doesn't think twice about throwing herself into danger, especially if it's to help another. She ultimately manages to be far more of a badass than any of the male cast members. She's capable of fighting everything from wolves to giant lizards to army officers to ''robots the size of buildings''. None of this holds her back.
* AllLovingHero: Her bright personality and kind demeanor play a huge factor in Joshua and [[spoiler:Renne's]] redemption. There is a reason why her nickname in-universe is something akin to lightbringer.
* AllWomenLoveShoes: A unique twist in that because she's a {{tomboy}}, she's a big fan of athletic sneakers.
* BadassAdorable
* BattleCouple: With Joshua.
* BookDumb
* CrushBlush: Rather susceptible to this whenever Joshua is brought up in a romantic context. It gets more frequent as the First Chapter goes on.
* DeadpanSnarker: especially regarding Olivier's antics.
* FriendToAllChildren: Although she doesn't have that much patience when dealing with children like [[BrattyHalfPint Luke and Clem]], she's otherwise pretty good with them, as shown when she cheers up up a boy whose testimony regarding Sky Bandits was ignored by the Royal Army.
* GenkiGirl: ''Mother of God.'' Her Genki Power could light entire cities. It seems like ''nothing'' can put a dent in her can-do, optimistic attitude. [[spoiler:Even the revelation that Joshua is an agent of Ouroboros only tempers her resolve to help him.]]
* GirlishPigtails
* HairIntakes: Her hairstyle resembles cat ears.
* IdiotHair: She has a small cowlick that stands atop her head and she isn't very smart.
* InformedFlaw: Her being a LethalChef. Only once do we see her cook (in FC) and Joshua and Cassius think it wasn't that bad. Optionally, we see her cook via the Recipe Book and the stuff is ''at least'' edible. Well, no one complains.
* JackOfAllStats: She's a perfectly balanced character, and since her orbment affinity is not restricted to certain element, she can be customized as the player sees fit.
* TheKirk: Oh yeah.
* LethalChef: To the surprise of few, the dismay of Joshua and Cassius, and the peril of the Bright family curtains. However, once you gain the Recipe Book she starts on her way to becoming a SupremeChef, instead.
* NotBloodSiblings: She and her adopted brother Joshua are the OfficialCouple of the series.
* {{Otaku}}: Of sneakers, of all things.
* PluckyGirl
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: With Joshua.
* SimpleStaff: Wields a Bo staff.
* StraightMan: Often ends up playing the straight man to the relative zaniness of the rest of the cast. Her "[[FlatWhat 'what' face]]" is a [[ rather]] [[ common]] sight in dialogue boxes.
--> '''Estelle''':Is that... a penguin? (An evil penguin?)
* {{Tomboy}}: Pursues a tomboy appearance almost aggressively. She doesn't have a lot of time for or truck with feminine frippery. Kloe and Schera occasionally call her out on trying a little too hard on this.
* UnusualEuphemism: Holy Stregas!
** To elaborate, Stregas is her favorite ''sports shoe brand''.
* WeaponTwirling: She ''really'' loves to spin her staff.
** SpinAttack: One of her Crafts involve spinning around and damaging the enemies in the area.
** SpinToDeflectStuff: How she deflects the bullets fired by [[spoiler:Mayor Dalmore]] in Chapter 2.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Her outfit from SC onward.

!Joshua Bright[[spoiler:/Astray]]

->'''Introduced in:''' First Chapter
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MitsukiSaiga (Japanese), Creator/JohnnyYongBosch (game), Creator/BlakeShepard (anime) (English)

Estelle's adopted brother and partner in adventure. Uses twin blades.
* BattleCouple: With Estelle.
* {{Bishonen}}: To the point where, when dressed as a girl, he gets referred to as "beautiful."
* [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy: Weissmann's manipulation of Joshua, first turning an empty shell of a boy into a heartless assassin, then turning him into TheMole]].
* ChickMagnet: To Estelle's never-ending despair.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes, and he still manages to be very sweet about it too.
* DeathGlare: ''It's one of his crafts.''
* DisguisedInDrag: [[spoiler: In order to infiltrate restricted areas of the castle, he dresses up as a maid.]]
* DualWielding: He does this despite not really knowing ''why'' he's so good at it.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Poor Joshua often gets accused of this by fans (and occasionally in-character). At the very least, he's a ''very'' [[{{Bishounen}} effete dude]]. That his Japanese VA is a woman doesn't help matters much. [[spoiler:This ''visually'' fades a fair bit in SC and beyond, when he embraces his past and his abilities to various degrees.]]
** This is so bad that he gets crossdressed twice in FC, and both times, he makes the girls in attendance jealous with "his" looks.
* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: Joshua's eyes look rather like this when using his S-Crafts in FC, oddly enough. [[spoiler:It's your first flagrant hint that something is ''wrong'' with the boy.]] SC plays around with this - [[spoiler:In the game's first half, this becomes the ''default'' state of his eyes as he's embraced his "inner nature" as a a ruthless assassin; however, once Estelle quite literally "hugs the emo" out of him, they go away and never return.]]
* FlashStep: A whole ''bunch'' of his Crafts and S-Crafts hinge on his ability to do this; it gives him some of the most devastating abilities in the game(s).
* FriendToAllChildren: A straighter example than Estelle.
* TheHeart: At the start of the story, he's very much this, a gentle young man who wants to see and encourage the best in people. [[spoiler:This makes the reveal about his past all the more crushing, especially to him.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: He's pretty fuzzy on the details of his life before he came to live with the Brights... and he's not too fond of talking about the details he DOES remember. [[spoiler:This turns out to be a combination of MoreThanMindControl and TraumaInducedAmnesia, as he desperately wanted to forget that ''he'' feels responsible for the brutal murder of his family, particularly his sister... which was ruthlessly exploited by Weissman.]]
* LightningBruiser: His orbment affinity is the Time element (which quartzes enhance the user's speed and/or shorten casting time).
* NotBloodSiblings: He is in love with his adopted sister Estelle.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: With Estelle.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: In SC [[spoiler:and during his days as Black Fang.]]
* TeachHimAnger: [[spoiler:Weissmann effectively did this when Joshua was still a child, turning him into a cold-blooded killing machine and the perfect spy.]]
* [[spoiler:WhatHaveIBecome]]: [[spoiler:A bit more like "What Have I Always Been", but the trope certainly applies at the end of FC. SC is, basically, about dealing with this.]]

!Scherazard Harvey

->'''Introduced in:''' First Chapter
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YukoShioyama (Japanese), Creator/MichelleRuff (game), Creator/ShelleyCaleneBlack (anime) (English)

An experienced Bracer and an older sister figure to Estelle and Joshua.
* [[BigDamnHeroes Big Damn Heroine]]: During the rescue mission in the final chapter of FC.
* BlowYouAway and ShockAndAwe: Her orbment affinity.
* CoolBigSis
* DeathDealer: One of her S-Crafts, Judgement Card.
* {{Dominatrix}}: She definitely has shades of this. One of her Crafts is called "Sadist Whip", which she precedes with "Someone's been naughty." Olivier comments that some masochist somewhere is dying to meet her, to which she offers to let him meet her whip.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: She ''really'' likes her booze. [[spoiler:And not just because she likes drinking, either.]]
* WhipItGood: Schera can sometimes be very enthusiastic about that whip...

!Cassius Bright

->'''Introduced in:''' First Chapter
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YukimasaKishino (Japanese), Leraldo Anzaldua (anime) (English)

Estelle's father, [[spoiler:and a former member of the Liberl Army]]
* TheAce
* BroughtDownToBadass: He was a MasterSwordsman before switching to a Bo Staff, requiring him to learn a whole new martial arts style. He's still one of the best fighters on the continent.
* TheChessmaster - Even though he means well, he can get very manipulative at times.
* [[spoiler:ColonelBadass: Retired Colonel, anyway. At the end of FC he rejoins the Army]].
* GeniusBruiser
* HeroOfAnotherStory
* MemeticBadass - InUniverse. [[spoiler:The BigBad of FC believed that him staying in the Army would have been a deterrent to foreign invasion equivalent to ''militarizing the entire country'']].
* StoryBreakerPower - He is easily one of the most powerful and the smartest people in the Zemuria continent. Ouroborus nearly destroyed the Bracer guild in the Erebonian empire just as a distraction. And as soon as he comes back from the empire, he prevents Ouroborus from throwing the Liberl kingdom in complete chaos.
* ObfuscatingStupidity

!Agate Crosner

->'''Introduced in:''' First Chapter
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakayukiKondo (Japanese), Creator/BrycePapenbrook (game), Corey Hartzog (anime) (English)

A grumpy Bracer with a very big sword.
* {{BFS}}: It's even the source of his title.
* ButtMonkey: He is teased a lot for his relationship with Tita. In case of [[OverprotectiveDad Tita's]] [[MyBelovedSmother parents]], it can get more than just teasing.
* [[spoiler:CynicismCatalyst: He lost his sister during the 100 days war. This led to strong resentment towards the army.]]
* FieryRedhead: He's quite HotBlooded.
* KnightInSourArmor: Less so to Tita, but to everyone else, he starts out pretty grouchy. [[spoiler:His reasons for this aren't so far out there, either.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* {{Lolicon}}: To Tita. [[EveryoneCanSeeIt The rest of party agrees.]]
** [[spoiler:ReplacementGoldfish: He sees his dead little sister in her even though Tita may harbor deeper feelings. In one of the Drama [=CDs=], he actually starts thinking about how he should treat her.]]
* RedBaron: Heavy Sword Agate.
* {{Tsundere}}: Fits Agate to a T.

!Zane Vathek

->'''Introduced in:''' First Chapter
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TetsuInada (Japanese), Creator/PatrickSeitz (game) (English)

A calm and reliable Bracer from the Republic of Calvard. An expert in martial arts.
* TheBigGuy: Shares this role with Agate.
* ChivalrousPervert
* EnergyBall: One of his S-Crafts is this.
* GeniusBruiser: He did not gain the A rank in the Bracer's Guild with just brawns.
* GentleGiant: While he still loves things like martial arts tournaments, he's disarmingly friendly and sincere to everyone else. It isn't even an act, either - he's just a nice guy!
* KiAttack: In his Crafts.
* MightyGlacier
* RedBaron: Zane the Immovable.

!Kloe Rinz[[spoiler:/Klaudia von Auslese]]

->'''Introduced in:''' First Chapter
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YukoMinaguchi (Japanese), CristinaValenzuela (game), Rozie Curtis (anime) (English)

A student at a private school. Is quite skilled with a rapier.
* ActualPacifist: She ''abhors'' violence, especially against other human beings. She even first joins the party as a noncombatant who you can't control; she'll heal you fairly regularly, but that's it.
** ReluctantWarrior: Unfortunately for her, the darkening tone of the story in the last act of FC and throughout SC doesn't allow for much in the way of dedicated pacifism, and she's forced to take up arms.
* TheChick: The nearest thing the party has to one.
* CoolSword[=/=][[spoiler:RoyalRapier]]
* [[spoiler:EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses]]: [[spoiler:She actually ''tries'' to subvert this, as she doesn't want anyone to know that she's the heir to the entire Kingdom of Liberl, and doesn't even want the responsibility ''anyway''. She much prefers hanging out with Estelle and co. and doing what she considers real, demonstrable good.]]
* LadyOfWar: She's the [[TheChick chick]] yet still the finest fencer in Jenis Royal Academy.
* [[spoiler: RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething]]
* ShipTease: Quite a few with Joshua thorough FC and SC. The Third, however, drops a massive one with [[spoiler:Lechter]]. How big? One of them even eats half of screentime in a door dedicated for [[spoiler:'''''OLIVIER AND MUELLER''''']]. And there's more in [[VideoGame/ZeroNoKiseki Ao no Kiseki]]!
* SupremeChef: Seems to be a good baker, if the children in the orphanage is to be believed.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Plays the ''extreme'' girly-girl to Estelle's equally-extreme tomboy.
* WhiteMagicianGirl: The extreme slant toward water in her orbment means she will inevitably have extremely powerful healing spells ''and'' she has one of the deepest EP pools of the entire cast, her first S-Craft is a healing/revive thing instead of a damage ability, natch, she is a [[ActualPacifist real pacifist]] at first before fate [[ReluctantWarrior forces her to fight]], and she crushes on Joshua like, well, [[IncrediblyLamePun a schoolgirl]].
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

!Matron Theresa

* TheGogglesDoNothing
* [[spoiler:HumongousMecha: one of her Crafts in the Third.]]

* PrecociousCrush: On [[spoiler:[[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Agate]]]] no less.

Tita's grandfather and a renowned scientist, he is one of the fathers of the Orbal Revolution.
* GadgeteerGenius
* MadScientist: In a way. He's still a good guy, though.
* TechnoBabble: He is Tita's grandfather, after all. Though he is a bit better at reining it in.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Towards his daughter.

!Professor Erika Russell

-> '''Introduced in:''' The Third

Tita's mother and Professor Russell's daughter.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: She isn't a bad person, but she can be quite rude and bitchy when she's in a bad mood. Despite that and her age of 33 she looks positively cute.
* CallingTheOldManOut: With an old man [[WellDoneSonGuy like that]] it's no surprise that they just can't get along.
* FanGirl: Of Lieutenant Julia Schwarz, machines and [[CutenessProximity everything that's cute]].
* GadgeteerGenius: Like father, like daughter.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: She really isn't happy about the [[PrecociousCrush close relationship]] between Agate and her daughter.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Her husband is about two heads taller than her.

[[folder:Erebonian Empire]]

!Olivier Lenheim[[spoiler:/Olivert Reise Arnor]]

->'''Introduced in:''' First Chapter
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakehitoKoyasu (Japanese), Creator/TravisWillingham (game), Creator/DavidMatranga (anime) (English)

A wandering bard from the Empire. Uses a gun, but his deadliest weapon is probably his mouth, which gets him into more trouble than anyone else in the party.
* {{Bishounen}}: And he goddamn ''knows'' it, too.
* BiTheWay: In his own words, he pursues what's beautiful, be it male or female. Poor Joshua.
* BishieSparkle: Part of his victory pose, actually.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: He's an ''extremely'' competent mage and gunner despite his antics; in fact, he's probably one of the most powerful characters in the game, and even leaving his antics aside, you'll probably want him in the party anyway. [[spoiler:His competence is a hint [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking to his true nature]].]]
* EasilyForgiven: PlayedForLaughs regarding his antic of stealing a high-valued wine in Bose.
* GunsAkimbo: How he typically fights. Notably one of only ''three'' gun users in the entire cast, despite the technology level of the setting.

* LargeHam
* [[spoiler:[[IJustWantToBeNormal I Just Don't Want To Be An Imperial Prince]]]]: [[spoiler:It's not so much that he minds being royalty ([[HandsomeLech it can get him a lot of girls]], after all), but he absolutely despises the excesses of his family and really wants to either leave it all behind, or by the end of SC, change it.]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity
* OddFriendship: With Mueller.
* PluckyComicRelief
* PurpleProse: He loves to speak in this way. [[spoiler:Except when he's wearing his "official" face as Olivert Riese Arnor, where the shift in tone is almost ''jarring''.]]
* SayItWithHearts: On occasion.

!Mueller Vander

->'''Introduced in:''' First Chapter
* BeleagueredAssistant and BeleagueredChildhoodFriend: Courtesy of Olivier. Mueller is usually the one holding the bag for his nonsense.
* {{BFS}}: It's still pretty realistic in size compared to Agate's sword, though.
* TheComicallySerious
* DeadpanSnarker: Considering who his friend is, this comes as unsurprising.
--> '''Mueller:''' But I'm guessing you'd rather hug than talk.
* KubrickStare: One of his expressions.
* LightningBruiser: In the 3rd, he has the highest SPD and the second highest DEF, STR, and HP.
* OddFriendship: With Olivier.
* SirSwearsALot: Fairly mild compared to most examples, as he only tends to speak roughly when addressing Olivier (which is somewhat justified).
-->'''Mueller:''' I'm here because I've had to follow your stupid ass all over goddamned creation.
--> or
-->'''Mueller:''' ''(after having to look for Olivier all over the place while the latter was participating in the tournament)'' You son of a bitch...

!Renne (Angel of Extermination)

->'''Introduced in:''' Second Chapter
->'''Voiced by:''' Kumiko Nishihara (Japanese), Creator/LuciChristian (anime) (English)

A young girl that Estelle and company encounter during the Second Chapter. She seems sweet enough, but there's something... off about her at times. She turns out to have quite a few secrets... like turning out to be the murderous tool of a secret society.
* AxCrazy: Her real default state of mind; she's the most emotionally disturbed member of the cast by a mile and a half. Even in The Third she's a bit quick to suggest scything things as a perfectly acceptable solution to problems.
* ChildProdigy: It's obvious ''very'' early on, even to the other characters, that Renne is ''far'' more intelligent than her tender age would suggest. She uses this to help Estelle and crew early on in SC. [[spoiler:Too bad the price of her intellect was ''horrific'' abuse at the hands of Ouroboros and others, robbing her of her childhood and turning her into a psychotic killing machine.]]
* CreepyChild
* [[spoiler:DefeatMeansFriendship]]: [[spoiler:Ultimately how she's brought around; her defeat and subsequent [[VillainousBreakdown epic breakdown]] force her to think about what Estelle and company have been telling and showing her all throughout SC.]]
* ElegantGothicLolita: That is one frilly dress she wears, and she even carries a little stuffed black rabbit around with her. In the latter parts of SC, this serves to drive up the creepy factor around her character a good deal.
* EnfanteTerrible
