    Main characters 

Hiro

Voiced by: Hikaru Midorikawa (JP), Mark Zempel (EN, Eternal Blue), Chad Letts (ENG, Eternal Blue Complete)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lunarebhirolowqual_7389.jpg
An adventurous youth and the main protagonist of Lunar 2: Eternal Blue. He lives at a research outpost in the Salyan Desert with his grandfather Gwyn and his best friend Ruby. Hiro aspires to be an archaeologist and is fascinated by stories of the valor of Dragonmaster Alex and other heroes of old.

  • Accidental Pervert: He doesn't ever encounter Lucia naked on purpose, but it just keeps happening.
  • Adorkable: To a great degree, especially when he blushes - which he does quite often when Lucia's involved, as he gets easily flustered. Also tells Ruby he wants to get on the helm of the Destiny and pretend he's in charge of it, and asks her to look out for Leo so she won't make fun of him. He's lying through his teeth and just wants to ensure he can speak with Lucia alone, though Ruby points out that he does like to pretend he's Dragonmaster Alex sometimes.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: His introduction occurs as he explores an ancient ruin full of traps.
  • Blow You Away: Specializes in wind magic.
  • Determinator: Almost to a fault. He steadfastly refuses to give up on a mission, especially if it involves Lucia. To the point where, in the Epilogue, he and his friends find a way for him to travel to the Blue Star to be by her side.
  • The Dulcinea Effect: So much so that the The Grand List of Console Role Playing Game Clichés calls this trope "The Hiro Rule".
  • Facial Markings: Tattoo-like bars that are apparently just for visual appeal, since none of the characters ever mention them.
  • Furo Scene: He gets one. Of course, Fanservice being Fanservice, Lucia walks in on him.
  • Happily Adopted: Gwyn isn't his real grandfather, but the two clearly love and respect each other a great deal.
  • The Hero: Obviously.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Towards the end of the main game, after Zophar has captured Lucia and the world has been drained of its magic. It takes a beatdown from Stealth Mentor Ghaleon to renew his determination and faith.
  • Image Song: Adventure Road - A New Journey
  • Jumped at the Call
  • The Leader: The others tend to follow his lead because they respect him, thus making him a Type IV.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Nowhere near as much as the women, but he does get that rather nice Furo Scene mentioned above - even if it mostly involves him gawking at Lucia walking in on him and Ruby.
  • Nice Guy: Granted, you can have him refuse in a rather dickheaded way in a few situations - but those are all But Thou Must scenarios. Overall, he's very down-to-earth, friendly, and always eager to help people in need.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang

Lucia

Lucia is known as the Princess of the Blue Star. Her sole purpose was to revive the Blue Star after Zophar's assault. However, when Zophar is on the verge of resurrection, she is reawakened to stop his return. Her goal is to meet with the Goddess Althena to combat Zophar's threat. Strangely, she claims she cannot sense Althena's presence in the world, and Althena's guard has been dispatched to kill her, being told that she is the Destroyer who will bring ruin to Lunar...

Ruby

Voiced by: Kumiko Nishihara (JP), Jennifer Stigile (EN)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lunarebrubylowqual_1153.jpg
A baby red dragon that hangs around Hiro.

Ronfar

Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu (JP), Ned Schuft (EN)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lunarebronfarlowqual_4625.jpg
A gambler who seems to be unnaturally lucky at the game of dice. He's lazy, lecherous and a little too fond of the bottle, but he's also a talented healer and usually the one who tells the group where to go. Ronfar used to be a priest for Althena and a childhood friend of White Knight Leo, but a traumatic experience with a loved one caused him to walk away from that life.

  • Badass Preacher: A former priest of Althena, a pretty well unflappable cool customer, and good guy to have on your side in a fight.
  • Combat Medic: He can dish out some decent damage, especially in the Sega CD version where most of his weapons are maces.
  • The Gambler: His luck with dice is so overwhelming that the game uses it to drive But Thou Must scenarios. He only loses when he wants to.
  • Handsome Lech: A number of NPCs comment favorably on his looks, at any rate.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Mauri the beastwoman.
  • Leitmotif: Wine, Women and Song
  • Loveable Rogue: He lies, drinks, and at least talks about womanizing, but before long proves himself to be loyal, wise, and willing to put himself on the line for people in need.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: He attempts to pass himself off as a run-of-the-mill barfly when Hiro first comes looking for him.
  • Oral Fixation: Perpetually has a twig dangling from the corner of his mouth.

Jean

Voiced by: Aya Hisakawa (JP), Jennifer Stigile (EN)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lunarebjeanlowqual_7243.jpg
A dancer from a gypsy caravan that joins Hiro's party. Although she originally gets the group's attention with her amazing dance moves and friendly attitude, it is revealed that she is also a skilled martial fighter when she saves Lucia.

Lemina Ausa

Voiced by: Megumi Hayashibara (JP), Kathy Emme (EN)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lunarebleminalowqual_2433.jpg
The Junior Premier of the Magic Guild, a training school for magic users within Vane, the city that once floated in the sky, but was struck down long ago. She takes a lot of pride in Vane's glorious past, and aspires to restore the city to what it once was.

  • An Ice Person and Playing with Fire: It must run in the family or something.
  • Black Magician Girl: In her own words, the Junior Premier of the Magic Guild of Vane.
  • Hair Decorations: Her hair ribbon.
  • Fortune Teller: When she first appears, she poses as one to trick people to taking a Magic Guild recruitment test.
  • Furo Scene: One of her bromides.
  • Genki Girl
  • Hidden Depths: True, she spends most of the game being the comically money-obsessed butt of jokes, but in the original game she does get a lovely moment after Zulan is saved from Missing Link, wistfully appreciating the happiness of two children in the village as the best reward. (A line inexplicably removed from the remake.)
  • Image Song: Money Is The Best
  • In the Hood: Worn in her introduction. Lampshaded by the other characters, who point out how weird this looked.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She drives everyone crazy with her constant attempts to talk people out of their money, but she's doing it because she loves her mom and her hometown. In Vane, people seem to like her quite well.
  • Leitmotif: Holding On
  • Miser Advisor: Lemina is always running an angle which usually looks like self-interest. She joins the quest to talk the other characters into joining the Magic Guild, thereby building the prestige of her hometown. She's been known to haggle with NPCs who offer to buy Ruby.
  • Money Fetish: Another one of her bromides, showing her counting and polishing her coins in bed.
    • It should be noted that in her bath bromide, she has piggy banks floating around in the tub with her.
    • At Taben's Peak, while the other party members are bonding with the kids, Lemina's inviting them to play "Pin the Cash on Lemina," advising them to break open their piggy banks - and promptly becoming disappointed when she realizes the kids are totally broke.
  • The Smart Guy
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Worn in the credits when she's studying the texts of Vane.
  • Squishy Wizard: She can use a variety of spells but can't take much damage.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: She looks exactly like her ancestor, Mia Ausa, except with a change of colors and a big red bow tied around her waist.
  • Verbal Tic: She's mega-fond of throwing "mega-" before words.
  • Wing Ding Eyes: Sometimes seen with dollar signs for eyes.

    The Four Heroes 
Not quite the same as in the first game...

Leo

Voiced by: Shinichiro Ota (JP), Ty Webb (EN)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lunarebleolowqual_9161.jpg
The White Knight of Althena and one of the Four Heroes. He is the leader of Althena's Guard, a group charged with bringing the message of the Goddess Althena to Lunar and stopping all wrong-doing in the name of the Goddess. He has been ordered to execute Lucia, and thus spends most of the game pursuing Hiro and company with the Dragonship Destiny.

Lunn

Voiced by: Koji Yada (JP, Eternal Blue), Masaharu Sato (JP, Eternal Blue Complete), Blake Dorsey (EN)

The Blue Master of Althena and one of the Four Heroes. He's considered the authority on martial arts and governs Meribia from the dojo he has constructed there.

Borgan

Voiced by: Daisuke Gori (JP), Dean Williams (EN)

The Black Wizard of Althena and one of the Four Heroes. He plans to recreate the lost glory of Vane in a new city he has designed, Neo-Vane. He is in love with Lemina's mother, Miria Ausa.

Mauri

Voiced by: Kumiko Watanabe (JP), Emmunah Hauser (ENG)

The Red Priestess of Althena and one of the Four Heroes. She is White Knight Leo's younger sister and Ronfar's former lover. Formerly, she was known for being kind and sensitive, but she has grown wrathful ever since she became the Red Priestess.

    Allies 

Gwyn

Hiro's grandfather, an archaeologist working in the desert.

Nall

Voiced by: Rica Matsumoto (JP), Jonathon Esses (EN)

The Team Pet Non-Human Sidekick of Lunar 1, back in a new role. He's older, wiser, and at least as snarky as before.

Giban

Head of the gypsy carnival that took in Jean. He acts as a father figure to her, and is more than willing to lend a hand to Hiro's party when they need it.
  • Expy: Of Laike! The scruffy beard, the aloof fatherliness, the way he throws back his head when he laughs... In fact, he actually was Laike in early drafts of the story.

Miria Ausa

Mother of Lemina and the leader of the once-great Magic Guild of Vane.

    Antagonists 

The Fake Goddess Althena

Voiced by: Shiho Niiyama (JP), Katie Staeck (EN)

The entire first half of the game is, essentially, Lucia's pilgrimage to meet with this deity and ask for her help.

Dragonmaster Ghaleon

Voiced by: Rokuro Naya (JP), John Truitt (EN)

A ghost from the past and one of Lunar 2's most pleasant surprises.

Zophar

Voiced by: Iemasa Kayumi (JP), T. Owen Smith (EN)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lunarebzopharlowqual_493.jpg
The dark god whose battle with Althena laid waste to the Blue Star. Now he's making a comeback, with his sights set upon the Silver Star.
