!!Playable Characters
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi (JP), Creator/XanderMobus (EN)

-->''[[CatchPhrase I have to think about this one carefully...]]''

The main character of ''VideoGame/RadiantHistoria''. TheAce member of Specint, Alistel's intelligence department, goes on one mission that goes horribly, horribly wrong. Nearly killed, he instead ends up in Historia, where Teo and Lippti tell him that his destiny is not to win the war for Alistel, but to save all inhabitants of the continent from the ongoing desertification.
* TheAce: He was apparently considered this ''before'' he was able to jump around timelines and learn whatever skill he needed for a particular situation.
* AntiAntiChrist: Heiss abducted Prince Ernst at the beginning of his "second life," renaming him Stocke and raising him in Granorg's rival Alistel. His intent was to train Stocke to assist him in destroying humanity. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Everything he does to Stocke has the opposite effect]]. Moving Stocke away from Granorg protects him from his DysfunctionJunction family and introduces him to his best friend Rosch. He butchers Marco and Raynie's unit so he can hire them to assist Stocke, but they become his newest and dearest friends, furthering Stocke's devotion to others.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Verges on PowerCopying. Stocke can learn techniques which take years to master with a brief tutorial and a few minutes' observation, though this may involve a certain amount of [[SaveScumming creative use of his powers]].
* BadassCape: It's half cape, half scarf, and all badass.
%%* BigGood
* BigScrewedUpFamily: The Granorg Kingdom
* {{Bishounen}}: At least one female NPC calls him handsome.
* BrainsAndBrawn: Brains side of this dynamic with Rosch.
* BringMyRedJacket: Dressed in red, and frequently charging into battle.
* CallingTheOldManOut: In his first life as Ernst, he died opposing King Victor.
* CharacterDevelopment: In the form of ''[[InvokedTrope deliberate]]'' MessiahCreep.
* CharClone: A subtle example, but he is a young military ace dressed in red [[spoiler:who is secretly royalty and has a younger sister on an opposing faction.]]
%%* TheChosenOne
* TheConfidant: To Rosch.
* ConsummateLiar: Good enough to fool ''Heiss''.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Not that it really affects him since he doesn't remember it.
* DeadAllAlong: He is Ernst, given a temporary second life.
* DysfunctionJunction: Between both timelines and all the bad ends, he goes through a ''lot'' of horrible stuff over the course of the game.
* TheFace: starts off as TheStoic, but also starts off with a growing circle of friends who he cares about dearly. He helps his party members through a variety of internal and external conflicts, and is always sensitive to their issues. And at one point, he helps his best friend Roche and an NPC with [[MatchmakerQuest relationship advice.]]
* FightingYourFriend: With Rosch, twice, but for ''very'' different reasons in each timeline.
** In Standard History, Rosch thinks his friend defected to Granorg and fights him when Stocke refuses to let him kill Princess Eruca for him. Stocke tries to reason with him that something bigger than the war between Alistel and Granorg is going on, but Rosch's MyCountryRightOrWrong mindset won't have a word of it.
** In Alternate History, Stocke reignites Rosch's will to fight by forcing him into a duel where he gives him a CruelToBeKind BreakingSpeech in order to {{Invoke|dTrope}} a ShutUpHannibal moment out of Rosch. This spurs Rosch to fight back, who even manages to move his Gauntlet despite the damage, definitely proving that the only thing stopping Rosch's return to the battlefield was Rosch himself.
%%* FingerlessGloves
* TheFourLoves: This is what separates him from the BigBad.
** Storge: [[ThickerThanWater Eruca and Heiss.]]
** Phileo: His TrueCompanions.
** Eros: [[BattleCouple Raynie]].
** Agape: His love for the world and willingness to be the Sacrifice.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Kicks the shit out of Rosch so he comes to his senses.
* GladHesOnOurSide: Raul said this verbatim about him in Alternate History Ch. 2 when Stocke suggested and ''volunteered'' to search through General Hugo's office for evidence of his conspiracy to [[UriahGambit get Rosch and his brigade killed in action]].
%%* TheHeart
* HellBentForLeather: Under the cloak, official art shows lots of leather and TooManyBelts.
* HeroicSacrifice: His ultimate role in The Ritual.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: For a spy, he sure wears some distinctive clothes.
* HopeSpot: The normal ending. Shows Stocke, still alive, working toward the GoldenEnding.
* HypercompetentSidekick: To Rosch as his [[NumberTwo second-in-command]] in the Alternate History.
* IAmWho: He's Prince Ernst, brought back to life as a Sacrifice and with his memories wiped.
* IdenticalGrandson: [[spoiler:According to Galva, he looks and thinks quite a bit like Prince Alium, his ancestor. While Nemesia's DLC only shows Alium from the back, one can see some similarity between him and Stocke.]]
* IdiotBall: He's usually pretty intelligent and surprisingly savvy, but some of the bad endings, especially "Hugo the Omnipotent", involve him suddenly deciding to do something ''really'' stupid. PlayedWith because access to semi-casual TimeTravel effectively gives him the ultimate safety net in the form of [[SaveScumming infinity do-overs]], and even the results of obviously dumb decisions can offer intel and insights to help in his search of the [[GoldenEnding "razor-thin path"]] to salvation that Lippti and Teo speak of.
* IfWeGetThroughThis: He promises to lay down his sword and live with Raynie in peace.
* InstantExpert:
** {{Justified}} given how SaveScumming through TimeTravel is good for that.
** This is PlayedStraight, however, with the way he learned Vanish during the course of a single fight by tricking Heiss to spam the technique in front of him.
** Stocke also learns the basics of Chi from Gafka after mere minutes of training. The later comments that making that much progress would have taken most people a lifetime.
* ItsUpToYou: Lampshaded. Several characters get annoyed with him for assuming he has to do everything by himself.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Heiss wiped his memories of his past to give him a new identity.
* LightningBruiser: His speed is only surpassed by Aht's, and both his Attack and Magic Attack stats are above-average even without the proper accessories.
* LineOfSightName: When he met Garland in Standard History as a prisoner, Stocke introduced himself by a fake name because he was on the run from Granorg and the King of Cygnus was about to have a meeting with Dias. He goes by "Ernst" because of his conversation with Eruca right before his capture. It isn't until much later that he learns that [[GenuineImposter he wasn't actually lying]].
* LovedINotHonorMore: Poor Raynie...
* LoveMakesYouDumb: Running away with Raynie? [[CatchPhrase I'll have to think about this one carefully...]]
* MadeASlave: Briefly. He is captured and taken to Cygnus as a [[GladiatorGames gladiator]], but he [[WinYourFreedom wins his freedom]] in a duel against King Garland.
* MagicKnight: Slices, dices, throws fire, and can heal you in a pinch.
* TheMatchmaker: To Rosch and Sonja, as well as to Liese and a Granorg officer.
* MessiahCreep: One of the most important things about him.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Many bad endings lead to this.
* MyGreatestFailure: The destruction of Rosch's brigade in the Alternate History, and particularly Kiel's death, since despite his best efforts [[YouCantFightFate he can't do anything to change it]].
* NervesOfSteel: It takes something ''big'' to get him to panic. Minor problems like a cave-in a yard from where he's standing aren't worth the effort.
%%* NiceGuy
* NotSoStoic: He gets set off on more than one occasion.
* ObliviousToLove: Kind of. He helps multiple characters with relationship problems, and can tell Raynie is in love with someone, but is then shocked when he finds out it's him, when he's the only person she could be describing.
%%* OfficerAndAGentleman
* TheOnlyOne: The only human being capable of completing The Ritual. (Until Heiss steps in.)
* PlayingWithFire: The only elemental magic he learns are five fire spells, including two unique to him (three if you count different names with identical effects to still be "unique").
* PowerCopying: Learns new skills at the drop of a hat. Most noticeable is copying Heiss's invisibility.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: The main motivation for his HeroicSacrifice.
* ThePromise: Two of them:
** When Rosch's unit is butchered and Kiel dies to cover Stocke, Stocke can't find any means to undo the event. Horrified, he swears to do whatever he can to undo it.
** He promises to settle down and live with Raynie in peace when the world is safe. [[spoiler:And does just that in ''Perfect Chronology'''s extended epilogue.]]
* RebelRelaxation: Several times, most obviously during the Mimel sidequest.
%%* RedIsHeroic
* RedOniBlueOni: Both Blue to Rosch's Red, and Red to Eruca's Blue, back when he was Ernst.
* RelationshipUpgrade: With Raynie after a RomanceSidequest.
* RoyallyScrewedUp: Considering his dad ''murdered him''... He even points out himself that he's probably happier not remembering.
%%* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
* SaveScumming: Implied to use his time-rewinding powers to learn techniques that often take ''years'' to master with seemingly blinding speed.
%%* ScarfOfAsskicking
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Sensitive Guy to Rosch's Manly Man. One of his endearing traits. He's a tough-as-nails hotshot spy, and one would think he would be cold and introverted (okay, [[TheStoic he kinda is]]). But he is very good to his friends and allies, in particular Rosch, Raynie, and Marco, and is sensitive to their feelings and problems. (He even helps Rosch out with relationship advice!)
* SoHappyTogether: In a bad ending, he and Raynie give up fighting to live together, only to watch the world slowly end together in peace. [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther They come to really love each other, and are happy together]], but he ultimately uses the White Chronicle to get back to work when he can't bear to watch the world die anymore.
%%* TheStoic
* TargetedHumanSacrifice: Being [[DeadAllAlong dead]] is a prerequisite and Eruca doesn't really have the option of resurrecting somebody else, so there aren't a lot of other candidates.
* ThatManIsDead: Both literally and figuratively: He lost his original life as Prince Ernst and got a new life as Stocke. Stocke believes that his new life shaped him for the better in a way his old life would never have experienced due to his DysfunctionJunction family. In the best ending, you can choose whether he acknowledges Stocke or Ernst as his name, invoking this trope. [[spoiler:The extended epilogue in ''Perfect Chronology'' has him sometimes called Ernst by those who once knew him by that identity, but he insists on being called Stocke.]]
* ThickerThanWater: Eruca and Heiss.
%%* TooManyBelts
* TrueCompanions: He starts off with a rapidly growing social circle.
%%* WarriorPrince
%%* WarriorTherapist
* WideEyedIdealist: Wide eyed might not be the best description, but he's certainly idealistic.
* YouAllShareMyStory

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AyaneSakura (JP), Creator/LaurenLanda (EN)

One of two members of a mercenary duo from the desert country of Cygnus, she is assigned to be one of Stocke's two main assistants by Specint. Once a child refugee whose parents were killed fleeing from war, she grew up in the desert city of Cygnus. Raised with other refugees, she grew up knowing nothing but combat, and became a mercenary. She and Marco later became contracted to serve Alistel, after a bizarre battle got their merc team killed. Armed with a spear and a wide array of black magic, she is an offensive powerhouse.
* AnimeHair: A ponytail tied with [[TooManyBelts a belt]]. It looks worse than it is, too, since she's got a cape with a huge pendulum thing on the end, and from some angles it's hard to tell it's not RapunzelHair.
* BittersweetEnding: The bad ending to her personal sidequest. The game's Golden Ending resolves it.
%%* BladeOnAStick
* BodyguardCrush: A variation, as she was hired to assist Stocke.
* BoobsOfSteel: Played straight. Compare her figure and playstyle to those of Aht and Eruca.
%%* [[ChildSoldiers Child Soldier]]
* DysfunctionJunction: Some obvious trauma from her mercenary company's annihilation before the game began, plus her entire family died in the fighting between Alistel and Granorg and she was forced to become a mercenary just to survive.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Watching Stocke stare at Eruca, she quickly sets up the chance for them to speak alone.
%%* FightingForAHomeland
%%* HintDropping
* IfWeGetThroughThis: She accepts Stocke's promise to settle down after SavingTheWorld.
* IHaveThisFriend: She starts to tell Stocke this, but he can see through it.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Lifestyle wise. She's weary of a lifetime of war.
* ImpossiblyCoolClothes: To all appearances, the only thing holding up her dress is [[TooManyBelts several belts]].
%%* IWillWaitForYou
* LadyOfBlackMagic: She has the grace in battle and offensive power of a Lady, but is slightly more rough around the edges than is typical for this trope.
* LadyOfWar: She uses her spear with considerable grace and finesse in battle animations.
* LosingTheTeamSpirit: Happens twice. Once when she realizes Stocke's choices could turn them both against Alistel, and again when she wants to give up fighting and elope with Stocke.
* LoveConfession: She tells Stocke "IHaveThisFriend"; Stocke quickly asks if she's in love with whoever she's talking about. She immediately has a LoveEpiphany in front of him and confesses to him, and [[ObliviousToLove he's genuinely surprised.]]
* MagicKnight: Has a spear for melee attacks, and a huge array of black magic spells. Her affinity for magic quickly outclasses her physical usage.
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: She wants to be FireForgedFriends. Riiiight...
%%* MiniDressOfPower
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: Has a serious crisis concerning this in Cornet.
* OneOfTheBoys: Marco mentions this. She gets pissed. Of course, then ''she'' completely forgets that it might be awkward to change clothes in front of the guys, and Marco has to remind her to wait until they're out of the room.
%%* OperaGloves
%%* ProfessionalKiller
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Marco's Blue.
* RelationshipUpgrade: Ordinarily JustFriends with Stocke, she is PromotedToLoveInterest in her sidequest.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: All three dialog options in her RomanceSidequest paint Stocke as a nice man. One for rescuing Aht, one for trusting her and Marco in [[YouShallNotPass covering Stocke's escape,]] and one for rushing to stop a gang of mooks from charging into a DoomsdayDevice. She must dig aggressive male chivalry.
* SoHappyTogether: With Stocke in one bad ending. If only they finished SavingTheWorld first...
%%* {{Stripperiffic}}
%%* TokenRomance
* TooManyBelts: She even uses one as [[HairDecorations a hair decoration]].
%%* TrueBlueFemininity
* {{Tsundere}}: Type B.
%%* ZettaiRyouiki

->'''Voiced by:''' Yoshitaka Yamaya (JP), Creator/BenjaminDiskin (EN)

Raynie's closest friend and ally, and the second member to assist Stocke. A short, mellow teenager, he has more of a supportive role in combat, with a variety of buffs and healing methods, but is still armed with a sword for offensive abilities.

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Don't kill his potential love interest. He goes AxCrazy.
%%* [[ChildSoldiers Child Soldier]]
* CombatMedic: Both in and out of battle.
* CoolHelmet: It has... metallic cat ears.
* DoppelgangerReplacementLoveInterest: He meets a girl who looks exactly like Mimel, though it's not known if Marco tried to get to know her. [[spoiler:''Perfect Chronology'''s extended epilogue reveals she's actually Mimel's younger sister, and Marco ends up working at the tavern to watch over her.]]
* DysfunctionJunction: While he's dealt with the mine incident better than Raynie did, he's gone through a lot of the same stuff she did. And in his sidequest, he either goes AxCrazy or watches the girl he has a crush on get murdered in front of him.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: He's quick to sigh when Raynie starts dropping hints she wants Stocke.
%%* FightingForAHomeland
* HeartbrokenBadass: Conclusion of his sidequest.
%%* LittleHeroBigWar
* MomentKiller: To the point where it can actually result in a [[NonStandardGameOver bad end]].
* NewOldFlame: Mimel.
%%* NiceHat
* NoodleIncident: Mutters something about Raynie beating the shit out of someone who hit on her.
%%* ProfessionalKiller
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Raynie's Red.
* SatelliteCharacter: Almost never seen without Raynie.
%%* WhiteMage

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/WataruHatano (JP), Greg Chun (EN)

Stocke's best friend, and given the spotlight in the Alternate History. When Stocke chooses to leave Specint to fight alongside him, they begin a campaign to win the war for Alistel. [[FromBadToWorse Things do not work out]].

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: The remake makes him look much closer to his canonical age.
* AmbidextrousSprite: While his normal sprite doesn't have this problem, his Gauntlet has a nasty habit of moving to his other arm whenever his portrait or his battle sprite is facing the other way.
* ArtificialLimbs: His left arm is a thaumatechnical implant called a "Gauntlet".
** ArtificialLimbsAreStronger: And it shows.
* BabiesEverAfter: Is married to Sonja and expecting a child if you complete their sidequest.
%%* BladeOnAStick
* BrainsAndBrawn: Brawn side of this dynamic with Stocke. Same can be said of his relationship with Raul.
* BringMyRedJacket: Fits this even better than Stocke.
%%* BrokenAce
* CantCatchUp: Mostly available in the Alternate History, and consistently drops in and out of the party for plot-related reasons; as such, Rosch tends to be underleveled for quite some time. Gets even {{Lampshaded}} by Stocke, joking about how Rosch'll have to work twice as hard to make up for [[TenMinuteRetirement all that moping around]].
* DisabledMeansHelpless: Acts like this once. Stocke has to [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan beat that attitude out of him.]]
* DuelBoss: Twice.
* DysfunctionJunction: See ShellShockedVeteran and LawfulStupid for why.
%%* AFatherToHisMen
%%* FightingForAHomeland
* GutFeeling: To an extent that it almost doubles as a mundane version of CombatClairvoyance.
%%* HandicappedBadass
* HeroicBSOD: Gets a huge case of this after he loses his entire army.
* HollywoodCyborg: Lost his arm and got a [[{{Magitek}} thaumatech replacement]] called a "Gauntlet".
* IOweYouMyLife: He feels indebted to Alistel for his new arm.
* JustFriends: With Sonja. But his sidequest reveals he can't stay that way much longer.
* TheLancer / The Big Guy: As Stocke's best friend he is the former, but gameplay-wise he shares the role of the latter with Gafka.
* LawfulStupid: He gets better. [[FromBadToWorse But not before he gets worse.]]
%%* MightyGlacier
* MyGreatestFailure: Losing his brigade. He feels responsible even when proved that it wasn't his fault.
%%* OfficerAndAGentleman
* RedBaron: He's called the Young Lion of Alistel.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to both Stocke and Raul.
* RelationshipUpgrade: Can get this with Sonja if you complete a certain sidequest.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Manly Man to Stocke's Sensitive Guy.
* ShellShockedVeteran: When he loses his entire army, he loses the will to fight.
%%* SupportingLeader
%%* SurvivorGuilt
* TenMinuteRetirement: After his entire army gets wiped out, he goes into this.
* TwentyFourHourArmor: He must smell really bad. He doesn't even get a new sprite with a desk job. Might have something to do with his Gauntlet.
* WhatTheHellHero: He [[LawfulStupid tries to kill Eruca]] and Stocke must kill him and use the Chronicle to sway his point of view on the country to which he swears his loyalty.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's ''twenty-one''.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TomoyoKurosawa (JP), Creator/CassandraLee (EN)

A Satyros girl resembling a goat-human hybrid, she is a Shaman with gifted powers. Immediately upon meeting Stocke, she wants to befriend him and watch him carefully and displays immediate awareness of the things that he's going through. A powerful mage, she has the best healing magic in the game; however, instead of attack magic, she uses powerful traps which need to be set upon the ground and require the target(s) to be knocked into them for serious magic damage.

%%* BadassAdorable
* BewareTheNiceOnes: In one bad ending she [[{{Yandere}} kidnaps Stocke, trapping him in a world she creates.]]
%%* BlackMagicianGirl
* BoyishShortHair: Along with sidetails to make her a little cuter.
* BrownNote: Creates traps with music.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Throughout almost the whole game it seems like Aht is one to Stocke, especially where Eruca is concerned. [[SubvertedTrope She's not jealous]] (or rather, not ''just'' jealous) but [[spoiler:deeply afraid for his life because she's aware of what the Ritual is actually about. Therefore Aht not only knows that Eruca will have to kill Stocke ''again'' to complete it, but also that he's almost certain to ''let'' her make him the Sacrifice in order to save the world because that's just the person he is]].
* CombatMedic: Has access to some of the best healing abilities and the strongest offensive magic of the entire cast.
%%* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
%%* CuteMonsterGirl
* EpicFlail: For some reason, it lets her steal.
* FaunsAndSatyrs: A Satyr shaman.
%%* GenkiGirl
* GirlishPigtails: Of a sort.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Hides her EpicFlail and shield there.
* HappyDance: *Jump, jump, spin!* *Jump, jump, spin!*
* HeroWorshipper: She adores Stocke, to put it lightly.
* IWillWaitForYou: She tells Stocke this in the end.
* KnifeNut: Her main weapon of choice, aside from the EpicFlail.
%%* LittleBitBeastly
* LittleMissBadass: She's ''nine'', and she can kick your ass.
* LotusEaterMachine: In one bad ending she seals Stocke in a world of her own creation.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Regularly places Stocke's safety above not just her own life, but everybody else's. For example, if he makes just the wrong choices, there's one BadEnding where she dies from a HeroicRROD to just break Stocke out of a Chi hold in battle, and another where she becomes a full-blown {{Yandere}} and traps him in a LotusEaterMachine, ''knowingly'' dooming the entire world by keeping him from saving it.
* MomentKiller: Aht will ''never'' fail to interrupt Stocke and Eruca whenever she sees them having a private moment together. At first it seems like it's her ClingyJealousGirl streak acting up, but it's revealed late in the game that [[spoiler:Aht knows that Eruca will need to kill Stocke to ensure the success of the Ritual, and will do whatever it takes to make sure the princess won't get the chance to convince Stocke to sacrifice himself to stop the Desertification.]]
* MusicalAssassin: She casts traps and spells by playing her flute.
%%* MysteriousWaif
* TheMedic: Learns some high-level healing spells.
* MomentKiller: She deliberately interrupts whenever it looks like Eruca might tell Stocke who he is.
* OracularUrchin: As a shaman, she knows quite a bit more about what's going on than any of the other party members except Eruca, and can even see Teo and Lippti when they appear to talk to Stocke.
%%* ThePollyanna
* SpamAttack: Dancing Death.
* SquishyWizard: Her defense is lacking, to say the least.
%%* TagalongKid
* TalkingToTheDead: She's a shaman whose job is to help deceased spirits pass from the world.
%%* TokenMiniMoe
%%* TrapMaster
* UnderratedAndOverleveled: Aht is probably the most powerful character in the game -- she's a better healer than Marco and a better offensive spellcaster than Raynie or Eruca ([[NoSell unless the monster is immobile]]), and she gets much less [[SquishyWizard fragile]] as the game continues. [[OracularUrchin Mystical powers]] or no, it's still a little odd that in a game where most of the playable characters are experienced soldiers, the GameBreaker is the [[TagalongKid little girl following them around]].
%%* VideogameStealing
* WaifProphet: Since she can see souls, she knows exactly who and what Stocke is from the very beginning. She just doesn't want him to find out.
* WeaksauceWeakness: She does not fare well against giant or immobile enemies since she cannot use her powerful trap techniques on them. Although she does make up for it by having the strongest healing magic of the cast.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility: The point of her sidequest is to get her to realize this.
* {{Yandere}}: In one bad ending, her [[HeroWorshipper hero worship]] of Stocke reaches the point where she decides it's a good idea to lock him in a [[LotusEaterMachine dream world]] against his will to "protect" him. Made even more messed up by the fact she isn't entirely wrong if you take some late-game reveals in consideration. [[spoiler:Stocke is the Sacrifice meant to halt the Desertification with his death, and being the kind of MessianicArchetype that he is, Aht knows that he's entirely too willing to give up his life without a fight for such a reason.]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RieTakahashi (JP), Creator/EricaMendez (EN)

The princess of Granorg, Alistel's longest standing rival. She is a large focus of the Standard Timeline. Her goal is to usurp her Wicked Stepmother for the throne of Granorg. But that's only part of her true goal: to complete the Ritual that will stop the earth's desertification.

* AnIcePerson: Apart from her NonElemental attacks, her spells are Ice-based.
* ArmorPiercingSlap: Her normal attack.
* BarrierMaiden: She's the only person left who can perform the ritual to stop the end of the world. Any timeline where she dies is automatically a dud.
* CantCatchUp: She gets dropped from the party for plot reasons during the entire last ''three'' dungeons, ensuring she'll be about ten levels behind the rest of the party by the time you get her back. [[SubvertedTrope She's still one of the best characters to bring to the final boss fight]].
* DistressedDamsel: A couple of times. When the group gets grabbed by slavers, she gets shoved in a cell in the palace basement, and at the end of the game, Heiss tries to kill her to stop the Ritual.
* DysfunctionJunction: Her messed-up family has left her with some... issues. In particular, she's got quite a complex about her brother. Stocke is, through no fault of his own, ''really'' not helping this.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: More than one person sees her and Stocke staring at each other and draws the natural conclusion. [[TheNotLoveInterest Which is wrong, by the way]].
%%* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses
* GlassCannon: While she can deal good damage, her physical defense is less than that of ''Aht''.
* GunsAreWorthless: Averted. She fires magic shots, and a lot of her more powerful attacks use her guns. Her melee damage ''is'' pathetic, but all she's doing there is PistolWhipping people.
%%* GunTwirling
* {{Hammerspace}}: For some of her skills, she holsters her handguns and pulls a rifle out of thin air.
* HeroicSacrifice: Defied. She tries to do the Ritual without a Sacrifice, but Stocke stops her.
%%* TheHighQueen
* HisNameIs: During a heart-to-heart talk with Stocke, she ''almost'' gives TheReveal early, but Aht charges in and interrupts them before she can finish the sentence.
%%* KickingAssInAllHerFinery
* LadyOfBlackMagic: She's a graceful and reserved princess who packs some of the most powerful offensive magic in the game.
%%* LadyOfWar
* MageMarksman: As shown in her battle animations she can use her guns to fire magic shots.
* MagikarpPower: Her starting stats and skill set aren't the greatest, but with some level grinding, she easily pulls her weight.
* MoreDakka: Her "Punishment" [[LimitBreak Mana Burst]].
* NonElemental: Most of her offensive spells.
* TheNotLoveInterest: She's probably the person Stocke has the deepest emotional connection to, and the plot is moved along several times by his desire to find, rescue, or aid her, but both of them are pretty insistent that it's not romantic when anyone asks. (She's Stocke's little sister, for the record.)
%%* RebelLeader
* RebelliousPrincess: Quite literally.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue Oni to Ernst's Red, before he died.
* RequisiteRoyalRegalia: She never takes her crown off.
* RightfulQueenReturns: Her goal is to take back Granorg.
* RoyallyScrewedUp: Let's see... both her parents are dead, her father killed her brother, her stepmother is [[TheCaligula crazy]], and her uncle is [[OmnicidalManiac even more so]]. It's a wonder she turned out as sane as she did.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething
%%* SupportingLeader
* SurvivorGuilt: She was originally meant to be the Sacrifice, and feels guilty that because she was the less rebellious sibling, Ernst got chosen instead.
* TakingUpTheMantle: Her rebellion and toughness is inspired from Ernst's example.
* TomboyPrincess: In personality, not appearance (more so in her ''Perfect Chronology'' redesign). More apparent in battle, her battle stance is rather dainty, but she occasionally stops to [[GunTwirling twirl her gun in two different directions]]. Then there's [[PistolWhipping her melee attack]]...
* TookALevelInBadass: In her ending, she pulls off Stocke's ability to Vanish, and [[AssassinOutclassin kills her would-be assassin]].
%%* TrueBlueFemininity

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/TakayaKuroda (JP), Creator/DCDouglas (EN)

A Gutral Beastkind. With the power of Chi, he transforms his seemingly brute strength into powerful energy attacks. When his skill gaining sidequests are completed, he gains great board control abilities, which let him push and pull enemies anywhere for absurd combos. Despite his rough appearance, [[GentleGiant he has a gentle and magnanimous personality]] [[GeniusBruiser and he speaks with calm and experience]]. He has some difficulty telling humans apart. He acts as a protector and guard for the village of Celestia, though it's unclear at first as to why he lives with the Satyros rather than his own kind.

* BareFistedMonk: Though he does rely on [[PowerFist gauntlets, claws and the like]].
%%* TheBigGuy
* BloodKnight: In one of his bad endings, he becomes a monster powerful enough to wipe his enemies off the face of the earth... but at the cost of his humanity. He doesn't stop with Alistel; he ends up taking on every other major country single-handedly, and the entire world has to team up ''just to take him down''.
* DysfunctionJunction: Surprisingly ''non''-dysfunctional, except in his bad end. Of course, it's almost bad enough to make up for that.
* TheExile: Left his hometown, Forgia. [[spoiler:He's allowed back by the epilogue.]]
%%* GeniusBruiser
* GlassCannon: Gafka can do large amounts of damage, but his magical defense is severely lacking.
%%* GoodOldFisticuffs
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: The main dilemma of his sidequest. As a Gutral, he has the power of a beast, but the ability to reason like a human. He is actively pursuing a relic that will make him "The Beast God," and give him ultimate power, but make him a pure beast with no humanity.
%%* MegatonPunch

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NobuoTobita (JP), Joe J. Thomas (EN)

Stocke's mentor and the leader of Specint. He is the one to initially assign Raynie and Marco under his command. In the same mission, he bestows him with the White Chronicle, simply stating that it might bring him good luck. As time goes by, though, it becomes apparent that Heiss may very well know the Chronicle's true nature, and is up to something behind the scenes.

It is eventually revealed that he is the wielder of the Black Chronicle, intentionally sewing corruption into history in order to hasten the continent's destruction. It also turns out that he is the first Sacrifice to refuse to complete The Ritual, and he also abducted his nephew Ernst during his second life, wiped his memory, and renamed him "Stocke" to prevent him from becoming a Sacrifice, too.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: In the remake, he is no longer balding and has gotten a more plausible-looking beard.
* AffablyEvil: He acts overly friendly and fatherly towards Stocke, which Stocke clearly finds a little creepy. Heiss also takes great joy in screwing with his star pupil for fun, but this trolling of his is intended as {{Stealth Mentor}}ship. [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes The ending makes it clear that he genuinely loves his nephew.]]
* ArtificialLimbs: Like Rosch, he has thaumatech Gauntlets that give him SuperStrength. ''Unlike'' Rosch, he appears to have traded in his regular arms to get them, and his are {{Swiss Army Appendage}}s.
* BaldOfEvil: In the original, Heiss is balding.
* BattleStrip: Tears off his shirt before fighting, to show off his ArtificialLimbs and HeroicBuild.
* BeardOfEvil: He has a chinstrap beard with the chin area shaved. It resembles whiskers more than anything.
* BigBad: Of the game as a whole.
* BigBadFriend: To Stocke, at the beginning of the game.
* CainAndAbel: Technically, he's both. He became the Sacrifice on behalf of his brother, King Victor, who was TheCaligula. When he got his second life, he killed King Victor and abducted the reborn Ernst, renaming him Stocke.
* CharacterDevelopment: He goes from being a GreenEyedMonster, to HatesEveryoneEqually, and finally to MessianicArchetype.
* TheChessmaster: The entire plot is ultimately driven by his scheming.
* DarkMessiah: Quite literally; he has the Black Chronicle as opposed to Stocke's White Chronicle, and is a MessianicArchetype who [[RefusalOfTheCall refuses to go through his duty]].
* DeadAllAlong: He is the previous Sacrifice, fleeing from his responsibility in his second life.
* DieOrFly: He spends the entire first third of the game sabotaging every mission Stocke gets sent on in hopes that a dangerous enough situation will make him awaken the White Chronicle. What he failed to realize is that Stocke ''already'' had awoken the White Chronicle, allowing him to get past these attempts.
* DirtyCoward: One of his final desperate strategies is an ongoing PlayerPunch. He repeatedly goes back in time, once to kill Eruca, then a number of times to possess different allies and enemies. He stops and makes a final stand, though.
%%* DontYouDarePityMe
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Acts like one towards Hugo, though in reality he's the BigBad.
* DualWielding: He has two Thaumatech Gauntlets, as opposed to Rosch's one.
* EldritchAbomination: His final form, Apocrypha.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: It's heavily implied he views Stocke as more of a son than a nephew, and in fact most of his actions in the game are an attempt to save Stocke from becoming a Sacrifice.

* HeelRealization: Has one in the GoldenEnding.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[RefusalOfTheCall Tried to run away from it]], eventually goes through with it to save his family.
* HerosEvilPredecessor: Heiss was the previous Sacrifice, but he rejected his role because he didn't want to die for a CrapsackWorld. His main goal is to get Stocke to reject being the Sacrifice as well, but his actions ironically caused his nephew to accept his role.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: By giving Ernst a new identity as Stocke and the White Chronicle, he'd hoped to have Stocke likewise turn away from his duty as the Sacrifice. Instead, living as Stocke gives Ernst the resolve to become the Sacrifice and stop Heiss.
* KickTheDog: Many of the people he turned into sand, he killed just to spite his enemies.
* LikeASonToMe: He says outright that he was always closer to Ernst than Victor was. Judging by his behavior when he drops all pretenses in the true ending, he has, if anything, gotten ''more'' paternal toward his nephew since then.
* LiteralGenie: He tells Dias and Selvan he'll let them "be a part of something great." By which he means he'll hit them with the Sand Plague, stealing their souls and mana to help fuel TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.
* LoveRedeems: Stocke decides that Heiss's RefusalOfTheCall is naturally from a lack of love and friendship, to the point there was not a soul on earth for which Heiss was willing to be the Sacrifice. In the GoldenEnding, Heiss finds one. [[ThickerThanWater His nephew Stocke]], who he genuinely tried to give a new life. Heiss demands he be sacrificed instead, so Stocke can be with all those he loves. [[spoiler:It's also a reason why he assists Stocke in the path to the GoldenEnding of ''Perfect Chronology'.]]

* MoralityPet: In a bizarre way, Stocke. He seems to be the only person Heiss cares about aside from himself, and many of his actions throughout the game are genuinely meant to help him, albeit in [[StealthMentor the trollingest manner possible]].

* OneWingedAngel: Apocrypha, which looks like something out of M. C. Escher's nightmares. It's the embodiment of the sorrow of all the previous Sacrifices.
* PeoplePuppets: Does this with the corpse of King Victor, and later with Field Marshall Viola. He's probably also doing it with the various "Shadows" you've been fighting as bosses on and off throughout the game.
* {{Plaguemaster}}: Every Sand Plague death is actually him ripping the mana out of a servant.
* PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery: Quite literally his objective.
* RecurringBoss: He's fought four times (five if you count Apocrypha as a separate fight), and in the last one he's the FinalBoss.

* TeleportSpam: While [[SubvertedTrope it's not actually teleportation]], he achieves the same effect on several occasions with Vanish. It may or may not have occurred to him that doing it so many times in a row gave Stocke more chances to [[AwesomenessByAnalysis figure out how it worked]].
* ThickerThanWater: Towards Stocke.
* TreacherousQuestGiver: With tragic consequences.
* WalkingTheEarth: What he does in the GoldenEnding of ''Perfect Chronology''.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Turns out to be the previous Sacrifice, who was less than amused by the fact that his asshole of a brother got to be king (and do a terrible job of it) while he was expected to die to hold off the end of the world. His exploration of the various possible futures just led him to the conclusion that [[OmnicidalManiac the world sucked so much he might as well destroy it]], so he [[RefusalOfTheCall up and left]]. The fact that King Victor's reaction to this was to kill his brother's favorite nephew to get himself a new Sacrifice probably didn't help.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: He does this repeatedly.

[[folder:Queen Protea]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/SatomiArai (JP), Creator/EricaLindbeck (EN)

The queen of Granorg, the country at war with Alistel, and Eruca's stepmother. She is a vain, cruel, and stupid woman who is manipulated by her advisers. She does as she pleases without a care for her subjects and is known within the kingdom as a tyrant. Swept up in the luxury and power of royalty, Protea is addicted to indulgence at the expense of her people. As the late King Victor's second wife, she has no blood ties to Princess Eruca and finds the girl a nuisance. She has no political expertise to speak of, so [[CoDragons her trusted courtiers]], %%[[DragonWithAnAgenda High Colonel Dias and Count Selvan]], actually handle her administration.

-->''"[[DeadpanSnarker Mm. If you'll excuse me, I must go set my own city on fire]]."''

Along with Dias, Count Selvan is Queen Protea's most trusted attendant. While Dias manages the army, Selvan bends Granorg's parliament to his will, acting as Granorg's administrator. He and Dias together manipulate Protea to impose their will on Granorg, but their relationship is always one of equals. Of the two, Dias is more visible, while Selvan uses his ingenuity to support him from the shadows. Selvan sees warfare like chess and enjoys it just as if it were a game. He is known as a feared tactician, but he occasionally goes into battle himself to lead his men.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/DaisukeNamikawa (JP), Ezra Weisz (EN)

A court knight who serves Granorg's Queen Protea. High Colonel Dias is an exemplar of skill and efficiency as the army's supreme commander. He is an excellent soldier, but his ambitions go beyond the military: together with Count Selvan, he rules over all Granorg with Protea as their figurehead. Though he tries to appear stoic and dignified, he is a decisive mover and tends to rush headlong into matters. However, his heedlessness is balanced by Selvan, whose guile complements Dias' deficiencies to form a balanced team.

The general and supreme commander of Alistel's army, he doubles as the Prophet Noah's mouthpiece and has taken up stewardship of the country in Noah's stead since the Prophet withdrew from public life five years ago. Since he holds the reins of both Alistel's government and military, it would be no exaggeration to call him the true ruler of Alistel. He used to be a politician, but his renown from conveying Noah's words to the masses coupled with the war against Granorg elevated him to his current position. Some already think of him as Noah's successor, as he stirs up Alistel's populace to war with exhortations that Protea-controlled Granorg is a den of evil.

* TheFundamentalist: His dying words imply that he actually believes he's in Noah's favor.
* GoOutWithASmile: A villainous, non-tearjerking example. The party is outright ''pissed'' that someone who caused so much suffering to so many people got to pass away completely satisfied with his life thanks to his self-delusions.
* KarmaHoudini: Discussed and subverted. The party finds it unsatisfying that he gets to GoOutWithASmile after all the lives he ruined, but they realize that now that he's dead, he'll no longer hold the reigns of history and that [[UnPerson he'll have no legacy]].

The director of Alistel's research and development department. Fennel is a world-renowned thaumatech scientist under orders from Hugo to work night and day on mass production of the powerful thaumachines he devised. Sonja is technically one of his underlings. He is Alistel's finest mind, but he has an extreme distaste for other people. He's a typical MadScientist who thrives on data collected through field tests and cares about nothing but furthering his research.

* {{Cyborg}}: One that's almost entirely robotic.
* ForScience: He's a MadScientist After all.
* LonelyAtTheTop: Though Fennel does love science, he loves the scientific community even more. The reason he stopped working on gauntlet tech was because the only person who could even comprehend his work (Sonja's brother) died, leaving his theories and creations completely unchallenged, which Fennel finds incredibly boring.
* MadScientist: Obviously. [[spoiler:A Possibility Timeline has him experiment on Noah's corpse to revive him as a thaumatech machine, which [[EvenEvilHasStandards horrifies even Hugo]].]] [[spoiler:Granted, the Flux Core ends up saving the original timeline Noah, but still...]]

It's unknown if he survives the ordeal, since he can be spoken to after fighting Hugo for the first time, but is not seen or heard of again.

The subordinate of High Colonel Dias in the Granorg Army. Called "the Executioner", he is a force to be reckoned with in battlefield.

* EvilLaugh: One of his voice clips in the remake is a really deep version of this.
* TheDreaded: Characters from Alistel tend to panic once they hear he is coming to whatever battle they are in.
* HeroKiller: In the prologue, he kills Raynie and Marco and grievously wounds Stocke, causing him to awaken as the bearer of the White Chronicle.
* HopelessBossFight: The first fight against him is unwinnable.
* OneHitKill: His Destroy attack can do this to one character.
* RecurringBoss: He is fought multiple times throughout the game.

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: They're far older than they look. In fact, they're even older than they should be chronologically (which would be at least as old as the the fall of the Empire), because their personal timelines include those of ''every single Sacrifice'', including Stocke and Heiss.

Alistel's prize Field Marshal, known as the Valkyrie for her beauty and strength. When she got too popular, she was reassigned to Alistel's most important stronghold and the most dangerous chokepoint in the war, the Sand Fortress, away from the people of Alistel. However, her valor and judgment have earned her the staunch support of all Alistellians, not just the miltary. She is unwavering in her devotion to Alistel and devoutly reveres the Prophet Noah as well, for she knew him personally before his health began to wane, which is something only a handful of people can say. Many believe that her charisma exceeds Hugo's, and her service record also dwarfs his. Yet despite her accomplishments, she is more often than not out of the country on assignment.

* AlliterativeName: With her RedBaron title, Viola the Valkyrie.

* DualWielding: Wields two swords.
* FightingFromTheInside: When Heiss is controlling her with the Black Chronicle, she tells Stocke to kill her.
* FrontlineGeneral: She spends nearly the entire game on the front lines. Although she's highly formidable in combat, many characters point out the absurdity of having such a high ranking officer in the thick of battle; she's only there because the de facto leader of the country, General Hugo, [[UriahGambit fears her popularity and wants to get rid of her]].
* HonorBeforeReason: On a TooDumbToLive scale.
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: Although if you do her sidequest, she is expected to fully recover in the epilogue.
%%* IronLady
* KickedUpstairs: According to Raul, Hugo feared that Viola's popularity among both the citizenry and the military would someday pose a threat to his own position. To prevent this, the savvy ex-politician made sure to get Viola fast promoted to Field Marshal and put in charge of the Sand Fortress, effectively removing her from the public eye and possibly even hoping that Granorg would eventually [[UriahGambit manage to get rid of her for him]] in their efforts to capture the stronghold.
%%* KnightTemplar
* MyCountryRightOrWrong: Even when she knows that Hugo is manipulating Alistel, she still fights for Noah, since the country would fall apart if they knew he was dead.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: At least when she's not being LawfulStupid and trying to pull a ThanatosGambit.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: By Hugo, for being too popular.
* RedBaron: "Viola the Valkyrie".
* ThanatosGambit: Tries to pull one off, though she may survive if you finish her sidequest.

The second-in-command of Alistel's army, with the rank of Lieutenant General. He is Rosch's superior and has a good rapport with him. His evasive demeanor and suspicious looks don't mark him as a serviceman, but those who know him well praise him as the Sleeping Lion of Alistel. He's not the type of commander who takes to the battlefield personally, but he has a natural talent for internal administration and navigating the kingdom's minefield of politics.

* ArtisticAge: Judging by some of his comments, he's getting on in years, but he looks like he could be in his twenties. The page-boy haircut doesn't help.
* BenevolentBoss: One of Stocke's only superiors that he can actually trust.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/AyakaSuwa (JP)

The leader of Celestia's vigilante defense squad, Elm is the most [[FantasticRacism anti-human]] of all the town's residents. This is because her best friend, Samra, went to Alistel to act as an ambassador and never returned. After Stocke finds proof that Samra was killed for [[SwordOfPlotAdvancement the Historica]], Elm helps restore its power in Samra's memory.

* FantasticRacism: Elm is the most outright hostile of the Beastkind toward humans when first introduced, a lot of it stemming from Samra never coming back from Alistel. Completing her sidequest gives Elm the resolve to begin overcoming this in Samra's memory, and by the epilogue, she's began travelling through Vanquier to broaden her horizons.

The king of Cygnus. His leadership style is direct, informal, and very hands-on.

->'''Voiced by:''' Ken Uo (JP)

The Gutrals' elder, said to be well over 150 years old. He is one of the few living beings who know of the continent's history. Because his race has been deceived countless times by humans, resulting in the loss of many of his kind, he is not kindly disposed towards humans and limits his people's contact with the outside world to a bare minimum. At his insistence, the Gutrals are mere observers in the war between Alistel and Granorg.

* BadassCape: It's more of a strand of cloth that travels across his body.
* DuelBoss: When trying to attain Gafka's skills.
* PettingZooPeople: Though he looks much closer to LittleBitBeastly than any of the other Gutrals. However, this could be attributed to the fact that the areas of his body where most Gutrals are covered in hair are fully clothed, which gives off a more human appearance.

[[folder:The Prophet Noah]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Satoshi Taki (JP),Creator/KeithSilverstein (EN)

Spiritual and political leader of Alistel, he was responsible for their gaining independence from Granorg at the age of 16 some seventy years before the start of the game proper. Five years before the start of the game he retired from public life, leaving General Hugo as his mouthpiece.

While Noah is not seen in the original game, he properly appears in ''Perfect Chronology'' in a Possibility Timeline where he remained in public eye.

* DeadAllAlong: He died at some indeterminate point after he stopped doing public appearances.[[spoiler: Subverted however. It turns out Noah is still alive in the original timeline, but his condition has forced him to be put in suspended animation.]]
* TheGhost: Because of his death, he never makes an appearance in the story. Averted with ''Perfect Chronology'', where the real Noah appears in a Possibility Timeline [[spoiler:and the original timeline once Stocke gets the Flux Core.]]
* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler:After being revived in the original timelines thanks to the Flux Core obtained from the Possibility History, Noah requests to remain dead to the public as he wishes for Alistel to move toward the future without him, with Hugo joining him.]]
* HiddenDepths: Nemesia reveals Noah was originally a thaumatech engineer before he became the Prophet Noah, and the reason why he founded Alistel was because he was unable to use thaumatech to help people in Granorg due to the king.
* [[IllGirl Ill Guy]]: [[spoiler:His third appearance in the Possibility Timelines has him admit his health is deteriorating to where he need Alistel's medical services, and according to Hugo, he was already slowly dying from illness. The original timelines reveal this was the reason why he stopped making public appearance.]]
* {{Irony}}: According to Viola in ''Perfect Chronology'', [[spoiler:Noah wanted the people to decide their futures for themselves, and not have him dictate them.]] Hugo proceeds to use his name to manipulate the people for his own agenda by disguising it as Noah's words, exactly what Noah didn't want happening.
* MoralityPet: Weirdly enough, he is this to Hugo. [[spoiler:In a Possibility Timeline, seeing Noah die from his illness in front of him after pleading for him to surrender has him in shock.]] [[spoiler:It turns out to also apply to the original timeline Hugo, whom upon being shown the Flux Core needed to save Noah, immediately snaps out of his Flux induced madness.]]
* NiceGuy: The Possibility Timelines shows the real Noah as a compassionate and kind individual whom simply wants to help people, and wishes for no tensions between humans and Beastkind.
* [[spoiler:NotQuiteDead]]: [[spoiler:Noah is still alive in the original timelines, but his condition has left him in a coma to stabilize him. Stocke giving Hugo the Flux Core allows for Fennel to revive him.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: In a Possibility Timeline where Noah did not retire from public life in ''Perfect Chronology'', we see the real Noah looks decades younger than his late eighties. [[spoiler:Noah explains this is the result of converting parts of his body with thaumatech.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: He's been dead for some time by the events of the original timelines, but his reverence among the people of Alistel is abused by General Hugo for his own personal gain. [[spoiler:Or that's what it seems.]]
* [[spoiler:UnwillingRoboticisation]]: [[spoiler:After his death in the Possibility Timeline, Fennel experiments on his corpse to create a new thaumatech machine so he can live forever.]]

[[folder:The King Victor]]
The late king of Granorg who died several years ago. He was unpopular with people and his rule was followed by that of Queen Protea, which manages to be even worse.

* AbusiveParents: He had no qualm in killing his offspring for disobeying him.
* AssholeVictim: Although [[spoiler:Heiss murdered him and uses his corpse as a PeoplePuppet]], it is hard to feel any sympathy for him.
* TheCaligula: No one in the present speaks favorably of him.
* KickTheDog: Basically all of his actions as revealed by the late game.
* OffingTheOffspring: He did this to his own son Ernst/[[spoiler:Stocke]] when Ernst became more popular than him.
* PosthumousCharacter: He is dead by the events of the original timelines, but his actions serve as catalysts for the main conflicts within the story. To list... [[spoiler:being one of the reasons Heiss ran away, killing Ernst aka Stocke to get a new Sacrifice, and leading Dias and Selvan to use Queen Protea to take power themselves for being such a terrible king...]]
* UnholyMatrimony: With Queen Protea in life.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: His callous actions resulted in his own death by [[spoiler:Heiss]] and Queen Protea's rule of Granorg, which meant the ritual wasn't held in time to prevent desertification from becoming a world-ending threat.
