Alex's childhood friend, who has lived in Burg with him for as long as she can remember. She is well known for her extraordinary singing voice.
Ascended Extra: In the Sega CD game, Luna leaves the party before the trip to Meribia, returns home, and doesn't have a role until she gets kidnapped and turned into evil Althena. In Silver Star Story and the other remakes, she stays in the party for longer but the outcome is much the same.
Brown Note: Two of her songs in the Sega CD version, Supersonic and Destruction, are attack spells. Outside of gameplay, The remakes have her sing songs that brainwash the Four Dragons when she becomes Althena.
Informed Ability: Her singing, at least in the English version, is not nearly as good as the game would like us to believe.
Leitmotif: Luna's LaLa Song. Normally sung by herself, though it's also played by Alex on the ocarina both in-game and in the BGM. It's the song you're going to hear peppered throughout the game the most, besides the theme for the game itself.
It's such an iconic song that it even returns inseveral songs in the sequel, even though Luna is only present in the game in the form of a message she left behind.
Another of Alex's childhood friends, though he's not quite as big on adventure as he is with dreams of making money. This doesn't sit well with his father, who is the village elder and hates the fact that Ramus always has his head in the clouds and never goes out and actually does anything.
Adam Smith Hates Your Guts: Played straight until the very end right before the final battle, when Ramus finally lets you take what you want from his store for free.
Bratty Half-Pint: Subverted by the fact that, according to Japanese materials, he's 17 and by extension the second-oldest in the party! (Kyle has him beat at 18; Alex, Luna and Nall are 15, and Mia and Jessica are 16.)
Small Name, Big Ego: He thinks highly of himself, and to a degree looks down on people that can't use magic. The fact he's not as good as he thinks he is even reflected in gameplay where, in both versions, he's widely regarded as the least useful of your major party members due his useless status effect spells and being the least reliable source of damage since he only uses thunder magic, so he's pretty useless against anything resistant to it.
Useless Useful Spell: Has a bunch of status effect spells. Too bad they're useless as you can kill the enemies faster with attacks.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: The first time you meet him, his own lackeys have locked him in the Drunk Tank; he's completely toasted and basically comes across as a big joke. The second time however... Well, ok he lures in a bunch of monsters by wearing an ugly and unconvincing Wholesome Crossdresser disguise and pretty much hamming it up. THEN he drops the act and proceeds to mop the floor with them.
The Drunken Bandit: His girlfriend storms out after a shouting match; he goes on an epic bender. The party nearly drowns; he gets into a drinking contest (it has plot significance, though). Alex goes off on a solo quest; he's sloshed when everyone reconvenes. The end of the world is imminent; he intends to go out in a drunken haze (until Jess convinces him otherwise.)
Snot Bubble: One appears in his introductory cutscene in the remakes.
The Goddess Althena
The primary deity of Lunar. After the Blue Star was laid to waste by a battle between Althena and Zophar, the goddess gathered what was left of humanity and moved them to the Silver Star, a dead world until it was brought to life by Althena's power. Since then, she has been watching over this new world, which was named Lunar, with the help of her four dragons and her champion, the Dragonmaster.
One of the original Dragonmasters. Little else is known about him, and Alex wants to be just like him. Believed to have been killed.
Determinator: Once fought Hell Mel for seven days straight until it finally ended in a draw and the two became best friends.
Not Quite Dead: Alex later finds out that Dyne is still alive, laying low under the assumed name "Laike".
Small Steps Hero: Surviving members of the Four Heroes tell stories about Dyne's dedication to doing what's right, no matter what...to the point that he took time out to save a drowning puppy while his band was on their way to save a town from invasion.
All-Encompassing Mantle: Both on his final boss armor for Silver Star Story, and the armor he wears when he returns in Eternal Blue.
Climax Boss: Has his own unique battle theme, and throws really flashy attacks, and is the strongest enemy in both versions.
Crutch Character: All versions, when you get him briefly. He's maxed out, so he has a ton of HP and deal more damage with or without his magic staff than Alex can with his current weapons at the point in the game you have him, and his magic will pretty much end a fight instantly.
Jerkass: Big time. You oppose him, he'll mock you to know end, especially if your losing.
Its less of one in the original when the pixies mention the garden is a Gilded Cage and think he's out of his gourd.
Rokuro Naya: In The Silver Starand both versions of Lunar 2.
Sanity Slippage: Big time in the original game. Rage Against the Heavens is one thing, but he's so pissed that decides to involve numerous innocent lives in what basically boils down him having a person grudge. Most anybody that doesn't work for him notes he's crazy.
Crutch Character: A rare case of a late game example. He's maxed out, is really powerful and tough despite his equipment being garbage for that point in the game, and can make four moves/attacks in one turn. In the remakes he's just maxed out with no special tricks.
Eccentric Mentor: He seems mercurial and almost incapable of taking anything seriously, but he does have good advice to offer.
The chief of the Prarie Tribe. At first, he doesn't get along very well with Alex for having mercy on a liar. After Alex proves his skill as a warrior, however, he becomes an ally who is willing to offer his assistance whenever the party needs it.
Plot Irrelevant Antagonist: All she really serves in the plot is a boss fight at the end of the game and take some scenes Xenobia had in the original game, and in the end isn't even needed for the story.
Another remake character. She is a priestess at the Shrine of Althena on the Katarina region of the mainland. She, along with her "sister" Royce hold their jobs to disguise their true nature as members of the Vile Tribe.
Anti-Villain: She sincerely wants to improve the lives of the Vile Tribe, who were banished long time ago to the barren frontier.
