An outgoing, friendly individual and the male protagonist, he shares a somewhat playful relationship with Sonja, his childhood friend for whom he cares for deeply. Due to various circumstances, he is whisked away to another world at the beginning of the game and, as a result, must share his body with Sonja’s consciousness.

- Friendship Moment: Has one with Sonja early on in the game, where the two declare they care deeply for one another before being enveloped in a mysterious, white light that serves as a catalyst for the plot. Later on, after the final battle has ended, he protects an unconscious Sonja as the two free-fall back to earth.
- Fish Out of Temporal Water: Rather than being Trapped in Another World.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Aden doesn't particularly care for Sonja developing relationships with those of the opposite gender.
- Hello, Insert Name Here: As always.
- Heroic Second Wind: Experiences this during the final battle, and is able to defeat Sonja's possessed body thanks, in part, to thoughts of his friends.

- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Relates to the "Color Coded" trope above in concerns to him and Sonja.

- She Is Not My Girlfriend: One of the first things he must say to Odette in re:Sonja.

- Victorious Childhood Friend: Should the player decide to have Sonja become betrothed to Aden.

Sonja (JP: Sonia)
A cheerful young woman with a bright personality, she is the female protagonist and is ultimately forced to cohabit Aden’s body as a result of losing her own, which, unsurprisingly, causes some complications. Nevertheless, her sunny disposition is rarely dampened, though she easily falls victim to jealousy. Deeply cares for Aden and has the ability to sing the Spirit Song.
- Action Girl: Inevitable, what with her being a protagonist.
- Badass Adorable
- Blow You Away: She's the Wind Dragon Priestess.
- Childhood Marriage Promise: With Aden.
- Color-Coded Characters: Sonja? She's the one with pink hair.
- Easy Amnesia: Subverted. It's been emphasized that Sonja, like Aden, does not have amnesia, marking her as one of the first protagonists in the series to not have such.
- Expy: Looks a lot like Estelle from Tales of Vesperia.
- Feminine Women Can Cook: It's repeatedly established that Sonja does all of the cooking in her and Aden's relationship, and she claims Aden is only bad at cooking because she always does it for him.
- In an odd case of Gameplay and Story Integration, if the player chooses to play as Sonja after her and Aden's separation and didn't level Aden's cooking skill much, Sonja's cooking skill is automatically bumped up to 40.
- First Girl Wins: Should the player have Aden marry her.
- Fish Out of Temporal Water
- Freaky Is Cute: Sonja thinks everything is cute. Even the creepy mantis-bug monsters they can tame.
- Friendship Moment: As previously mentioned, has one early on in the game with Aden, and later on, after the final battle, when her childhood friend protects her as the two free-fall back to earth.
- Genki Girl: Still retains her peppiness even when trapped in Aden's body.

- Green Eyes: Prominent in that they are rather unique amongst Fenith Island's population, and one of her more notable physical traits.
- Hello, Insert Name Here: She can be renamed, too.
- Improbable Weapon User: Like Aden, she has access to some rather odd choices of weapons, such as the previously mentioned giant fireworks.
- Magic Music: Her Spirit Song has the ability to evoke certain happenings, allowing her to achieve tasks few others can.
- Nice Hat: Or headband-thingy.
- Official Couple: She and Aden; he, as well, starts off with LP instead of FP
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Again, relates to the "Color Coded" trope above in concerns to her and Aden.
- Plucky Girl: Despite being forced to live in another's body as a virtual spirit for an unspecified amount of time, on top of being trapped in a world that's not her own, her naturally bright disposition is rarely dampened.
- Sharing a Body: What she must do with Aden. Of note, however, is Sonja's ability to take control of Aden somewhat, which allows her to accomplish tasks she otherwise would not be able to do, given the circumstances; others can also communicate with her, to some degree. Nevertheless, it still proves to be awkward for Sonja, of course, as she must comply with Aden's rules during various - and sometimes uncomfortable - situations.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Though she was universally called Sonia before her dub name was announced, Sonja is a valid way to interpret her original name.
- Sweet Tooth: If Aden stands still long enough when she's still trapped in his body, she'll start babbling about wanting pie or pudding or tarts.
- Time Travel Romance: If she marries anyone but Aden.
- Unlucky Childhood Friend: Should the player decide to have Aden become betrothed to any other possible marriageable candidate aside from her.
- Victorious Childhood Friend: Should the player decide to have Aden become betrothed to Sonja.
- You Could See Me?: Joe could see her when she was still trapped in Aden's body.
Voiced By: Kikuko Inoue (JP); GK Bowes (EN)
The oldest of the three main heroines, she treats her younger sisters, Odette and Violet, with a motherly attitude and has an overall calm disposition. While clumsy and a terrible cook, she is very skilled at the lute and so functions as Fenith Island’s bard during the evenings at the local inn, “Sisters,” which she helps run. Is one of several that can sing the Spirit Song.
- Curtains Match the Window: Her eyes are of a similar color to her light red hair.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: Has an alarming tendency to trip over herself, and so fall flat on her face.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Has no earth-related powers, but she's the Earth Dragon Priestess.
- Lethal Chef: Whenever she attempts to cook something, it inevitably ends in smoke, ashes, and someone fainting.
- Magic Music: Shares this ability with Sonja and her two younger siblings.
- People Puppets: Becomes subjected to this as a result of possession, though Odette soon comes to her aid.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is sometimes referred to as "Lili."
- Team Mom: Has taken up this role in the household, often looking after her younger siblings.
- Verbal Tic: Has a tendency to say "Oh my," somewhat indiscriminately, during conversations.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: Downplayed. Despite her personality and voice actress, she has no domestic traits. With some help from Aden and her sisters she improves her cooking.
Voiced By: Masumi Asano (JP); Rachel Hirschfield (EN)
The first person both Aden and Sonja meet upon arriving at Fenith Island, she helps the two become acquainted to their new surroundings and offers them housing neighboring the inn, “Sisters,” for which she acts as the chef. Has a scar under her right eye and on her upper right arm, and is the middle sister of the three main heroines. While friendly and a generally welcoming individual, she can exhibit some tsundere tendencies. Also acts as Fenith Island’s priestess, and can sing the Spirit Song. She is good friends with Sierra.
- Anguished Declaration of Love: Happens without her realizing it in her 9LP event. Once she realizes she told Aden she loves him, she starts yelling at him and says that she wouldn't date him anyway.
- Beta Couple: As a Rune Factory game, Aden has his choice of (almost) any lady in town to romance. The game designers seemed to have Sonja in mind for your love interest, but Odette wins out as their second main choice. She's the first girl you meet (aside from Sonja), and tends to show up most during the main storyline. This would imply First Girl Wins, except Sonja is with you the whole time...
- Big Eater: Implied more than a couple of times throughout the game; subverted in that she is the town's most proficient cook and chef of the inn, whereas characters who apply to this trope don't usually cook for themselves.
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: "I'm here to save your bacon!"
- Improbable Hairstyle: In a setting where the majority of folks have rather sane hair, Odette stands out the most.
- Informed Flaw: She claims she can't sing as well as her sister Lily, but her Spirit Song proves otherwise.
- Magic Music: Like Sonja, her singing has the power to evoke certain happenings or events.
- Miko: Is this to Fenith Island's Descended Dragon, and often dutifully accepts a wide range of monetary donations for its shrine, as well as cares for its egg once it departs back to the Forest of Beginnings.
- People Puppets: Frequently undergoes this while channeling the Descended Dragon's spirit.
- Playing with Fire: She's the Fire Dragon Priestess.
- Powers via Possession: Complete with altered eye color and a distinctly different voice. She has some degree of control over this, however, which proves useful in many a situation.
- Scars Are Forever: Has an aforementioned scar under her right eye - which is actually quite cute - as well as an aforementioned and arguably more prominent one upon her upper right arm, of which is partially concealed by an armband.
- Supreme Chef: Is a great cook, so much so that she utilizes this for the inn's patrons.
- Tsundere: Can display traits of this at times, particularly in concerns to Aden.
- You Gotta Have Lavender Hair: In stark contrast to her two sisters, who have hair colors that are considerably more normal.
Violet (JP: Iris)
Voiced By: Kana Hanazawa (JP); Megan Harvey (EN)
The youngest of the three main heroines, she helps her older sisters, Lily and Odette, run the inn, and acts as Fenith Island’s nurse. Has a shy, somewhat reticent personality, and finds it rather difficult talking to Aden, with whom she falls in love with at first sight. Enjoys gardening, and, like her sisters, can sing the Spirit Song.
- Curtains Match the Window: Comes into effect with her brown eyes and brown hair.
- Dub Name Change: Presumably to ease confusion with the other Irises, her name is changed to Violet in the dub.
- Girly Run
- Love at First Sight: With Aden, as mentioned.
- Magic Music: Shares this trait with Sonja, Lily, and Odette.
- Making a Splash: She's the Water Dragon Priestess.
- Meaningful Name: In the dub, as her most prominent personality trait is her shyness.
- Proper Tights with a Skirt
- The Medic: Given that she is the resident nurse, it seems only natural for her to be so.
- One Steve Limit: Likely the reason for her Dub Name Change.
- Shrinking Violet: She has a tendency of being unable to speak and blushing furiously when around Aden, though raising her Relationship Values assuages said problems.
Daughter of Beatrix, the matriarch of the Hattain sub-branch of the wealthy de Sainte-Coquille clan, she is a hardworking and diligent individual who, on top of acting as Fenith Island's representative in her mother's stead, strives to help earn funds for her family, which is rather strapped for cash. Nevertheless, she maintains an optimistic outlook on things and likes to help others. In her spare time, she enjoys crafting accessories and studying in secret in the hopes of one day attending a school in the city. She is good friends with her maid, Maerwen.
- Curtains Match the Window: Demonstrated with her blue hair and blue eyes.
- Impoverished Patrician: She's part of the de Sainte-Coquille family, lives in a huge house, and wears a Pimped-Out Dress, but her branch of the family is so poor that she has to work part time jobs to make ends meet for her family.
- Non-Idle Rich: Amongst her other duties as representative of Fenith Island, she does a lot of the housework and some part-time jobs, which she doesn't necessarily mind, though much to her maid, Maerwen's, chagrin.
- Pimped-Out Dress: Certainly one of the fancier ones seen on any character, and even has tools and various clothier paraphernalia in the pockets and otherwise about, likely used for her accessory crafting.
- Pink Means Feminine: Her dress is mostly pink.
- Spoiled Sweet: Considering her (albeit-wavering) wealth, she is a very selfless individual.
Sierra (JP: Sarah)
Voiced By: Fumie Mizusawa (JP); GK Bowes (EN)
An extroverted tomboy who co-runs the “Gemini General Store” with her twin brother, Bismarck, she largely lacks motivation to do her job, preferring instead to skip work to have fun elsewhere. Easy-going and a bit absent-minded at times, she can occasionally speak without thinking, to the chagrin of some. Is good friends with Odette, with whom she visits while procrastinating.
- Bifauxnen: Less so than Mikoto, though still a rather prominent characteristic.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: Sometimes, a faceless subvillager will mention how good she is at her job.
- Dub Name Change: To Sierra, from Sarah.
- Fun Personified: Who else?
- Genki Girl: While not an extreme example, she tends to be more extroverted than most other characters.
- Pointless Band-Aid: Has one on the right side of her face.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: As previously mentioed, she much rather goof off and have fun rather than spend her hours at the store, for which Bismarck constantly gets annoyed at her.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is sometimes referred to as "Sara" or "Sera," among other iterations.
- Tomboy: Only natural!
- Who Wears Short Shorts??: And yet even the winter cold does not deter her.
Voiced By: Kanae Ito (JP); Stephanie Misa (EN)
A spirited adolescent who is Fenith Island’s resident blacksmith and lives at her shop with her older brother, James, she fashions partially-mechanical golems during her spare time, and displays an inordinate knowledge of the subject. While she often speaks harshly to others and has no qualms about saying disparaging comments, she has a kind heart. Frequently uses Aden as a personal guinea pig for her newest creations.
- The Blacksmith: In addition to her smithy work, she also makes and uses golems, as mentioned above. One of these runs the weapons shop, "Chronos" (or "Daedalus" in the dub) for her.
- Expy: Her character design bears uncanny resemblance to Rin Kagamine. Also, she strongly dislikes milk, like the protagonist of Fullmetal Alchemist, who is also blond, short and considered a genius in his field of work.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Is this to some degree, given the partially-mechanical nature of the golems she builds, though sometimes her experimentations fail her. Otherwise, her expertise knowledge does not seem to deviate from this area much.
- Mad Scientist: In that she often forces Aden into being a test dummy for her newest golem creations, as stated above, and it is also suggested that she urges Aden and Sonja to let her dissect Ymir, their sea-faring giant.
- The Napoleon: Though whether her ill-mannered behaviour stems from her height - or lack thereof - or otherwise is not quite known.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: The violent storm to James' calm, so to speak.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is occasionally referred to as "Helena."
- Sweet Tooth: She likes her chocolate chip cookies.
- Third-Person Person: Has a tendency to somewhat randomly lapse into this.
- Tsundere: Frequently displays her temper, and even goes so far as to call James an "idiot."
A stoic and very formal onna-bugeisha, or lady-samurai, hailing from the Far East, she works as a hired guard charged with protecting Fenith Island’s borders and speaks sparsely of her past. While she lacks confidence in herself as a person, she trains diligently every morning to become a stronger warrior. Ordinarily composed, she can, at times, show sudden bursts of anger or other emotions, particularly if she is comfortable with someone or in close proximity to a cute animal.
- Action Girl: In one request, she spars with the protagonist and wins.
- Bifauxnen: To the point where Fenith Island's residents aren't quite sure she's a woman.
- Curtains Match the Window: Comes into effect, somewhat, with her grey eyes and black hair.
- Deadpan Snarker: Is said to be something close to this.
- Embodiment of Virtue: She works hard to cultivate several virtues.
- Important Haircut: After having a heartfelt conversation with Aden concerning her past, Mikoto receives one, considering it a symbol of rebirth and a declaration of self-confidence.
- Lady of War: Gives off an impression of this.
- Onna-bugeisha: Though unwillingly, she is this to the best of her abilities.
- Raised as the Opposite Gender: Hinted at. In the country where she's from, only men can be the head of the family and until she was fourteen she was her family's only child. As a result, she was raised so as to properly fit a position typically filled by males, and this is why she pretends to be a man for so long - she doesn't know how to act like a woman.
- The Stoic: Both played straight and subverted. While she more often than not can be seen with an unflappable disposition, she can have her moments. Of course, these are only prevalent once her Relationship Values have been raised enough, or when a small critter happens by her path.
- Sugar and Ice Personality
- Pre-Release Info Always Spoils: Before the game even came out in Japan, pre-release info showed that she is a bachelorette and really a woman. This led to her true gender being an It Was Her Sled situation.
- The Unfavorite: Was any only child until her brother was born. Having basically raised Mikoto as a boy until this point so that she could become the head of the family, her family began to ignore her because they now had a son that could fulfill the role of head of the family.
- [[spoiler:Why Did It Have To Be Water?: Upon asking her why she is rarely seen on the beach despite her fondness of the ocean, a flustered Mikoto admits to Aden and Sonja that she does not swim. This turns out to be a lie, though, to cover up the fact that she's a woman and that if she swam her true gender would be revealed. Once her secret is out, she starts going to the beach and wears a swimsuit like everyone else.
An outwardly cold Dark Elf who serves as the de Sainte-Coquilles' maid, she is good friends with Elektra, though is often frustrated by her constant menial working. Indeed, she can appear easily exacerbated with others and frequently expresses this, though, ultimately, she is a kind individual appreciative of others. She reads in her spare time, and can be rather sensitive about her heritage in certain situations. Deeply cherishes the garden to which she tends.
- Dub Name Change: To Maerwen, from Melprine.
- Meganekko: She wears a pair of rather stylish rectangular glasses, though takes them off during certain situations.
- Our Elves Are Different: Seems to be a part of a growing trend in the Rune Factory universe, though she doesn't necessarily mind her position in life. Additionally, she frequently makes a direct reference to "Dark Elves," even mentioning that her odd name means something to the affect of "white flowers on the water" among her people.
- Pointy Ears: Has these, of course, though unlike previous representations of those of her race, her ears are at a more perpendicular, somewhat down-facing position upon her head.
- Spell My Name with an "S": "Merupurin," "Melprin," "Melpurin"...
- Sugar and Ice Personality: Is this to a fault, though raising her Relationship Values inevitably helps to melt her icy demeanor.
- Unusual Eyebrows: Hers, at first glance, almost appear to be tattoos of some sort, though the reason they're like that has yet to be explained.
- You Gotta Have Green Hair: But of course.
Voiced By: Yukari Tamura (JP); Hunter Mackenzie Austin (EN)
A demon encased in stone for several centuries due to a petrifaction spell gone awry, she is eventually released from her prison by Aden and Sonja, with whom she forms a peculiar relationship. Despite initial denial as to her nature, she later on becomes much more open about discussing her true identity and intentions of world domination, and often displays the ability to turn a conversation in any direction of her choosing. While somewhat menacing, she also can be kind to others. Eventually lives at the church and becomes a friend to Quinn in particular.
- A-Cup Angst: According to Quinn, Pandora is "just like her", which the latter is not happy to hear.
- Affably Evil: Even when plotting to take over the world, she's awfully friendly to both Aden and Sonja, especially. The three can strike up a nice, somewhat friendly conversation, for example, only to have Pandora easily turn their chat around into a dark and menacing exchange, then back to amiable banter again soon thereafter. She also proves relatively helpful later on in the game. Additionally, she seems to be on relatively good terms with Fenith Island's younger citizens, one of whom addresses her as "Miss Sorceress."
- And I Must Scream: Was trapped under the ocean as a statue for at least 400 years, remaining aware of her surroundings the entire time with only fish to talk to. According to her, the fish were poor conversationalists.
- Bowdlerise: Most of the references to her being a demon are replaced with Arch-Sorceress in the English version. Her father is referred to as a Fiend at least once though.
- Cute Little Fangs: Inverted, as they don't necessarily make her look any less menacing, and, arguably, help to add to her already somewhat sinister appearance.
- Dark Magic: Was once able to wield such power, though she is no longer able to do so.
- Evil Overlord With An F in Evil: Hard to say what she’s worst at, the “sorceress”, or the “evil” part.
- Expressive Clothes: That floaty scarf thing she has reacts to her emotions, hovering casually when she is calm, for example, or twisting slightly when she is angered.
- Evil Is Hammy: Oh, so much.
Pandora: "My name is Pandora, an evil sorceress built on world conquest... Err, I mean, a humble witch.
- Four Is Death: Likely the reason she amasses a total of four followers.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Her father was a fearsome demon lord while her mother was a human.
- Holy Burns Evil: Don't ever give her rosary beads.
- Improbable Hairstyle: Rather peculiar, given her hair's half-down half-pigtail nature, though certainly not the most odd.
- Late-Arrival Spoiler: Introduces herself as "the dark lord," though she quickly corrects herself and states she's "merely a mage." Later on, however, she is not entirely shy about discussing her true title, as mentioned previously.
- Meaningful Name: Pandora is often associated with the Greek woman who, albeit accidentally, released evil upon the world.
- Most Definitely Not a Villain
- Mystical White Hair: Somewhat helps to subvert the stereotypes common to her race, and additionally exhibits Purple Eyes that help to accentuate her pride and light arrogance.
- Older Than She Looks: Though she doesn't appear so, she is over four-hundred years old, due largely to the accidental petrifaction mentioned above, as well as her ensuing suspended animation. This is also supported by her antiquated style of speech.
- Our Demons Are Different: While she can, at times, exhibit more stereotypical traits associated with her race, such as intolerance of holy objects, she has no issues dwelling within Fenith Island's church once she has been fully revived from her petrifaction. Furthermore, she's capable of being rather amiable and even helpful, as previously mentioned.
- People Puppets: Actually becomes possessed by her own father several times, as he disapproves of her being in a relationship with Aden, as well as for other various reasons.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Technically, it's supposed to be "Pandra" - at least according to the pre-order material - but that's not nearly as cool.
- Talking to Herself: She shares a voice actress with Quinn in the English dub, with whom she has regular interaction.
- Unusual Ears: Has these, of course, which widen at the top and are slightly segmented by ridges, perhaps reinforcing her demonic background.
- Taken for Granite: When you first meet her, she's been turned into a statue. This happened because she was practicing a spell to turn others to stone to help with her world domination plan. It went wrong, though, and she was turned to stone. It happens again in her 6FP event. She gets better.
- World Domination: Dialogue reveals this is her ultimate goal, despite her initial denial. She then goes on to induct Aden and Sonja as her chief followers, discusses her strategical tactics with them, and recruits Quinn and Kelsey, two children, to her cause.
An intrepid merchant who cares for his sister, Elena, he exhibits a cordial and gentlemanly air. Valuing politeness, he has no qualms about chastising his younger sibling for her at-times rude behavior, though nevertheless dotes on her frequently. Kind and down-to-earth, he is an amiable and welcoming individual.
- Big Brother Instinct: Has this toward Elena, to the point of giving warning to Aden that he will "not hand her out so freely."
- His dedication to his sister is a huge part of his character. A lot of his dialogue is about her (compared to the virtually none from Elena about him) and he even claims to forget his own birthday while preparing for hers.
- Intrepid Merchant: Is this in part, selling a wide variety of wares ranging from house expansions to lottery tickets he presumably obtains elsewhere.
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Though, admittedly, said long hair is tied in a loose ponytail.
- Nice Hat: If there is one defining physical trait of James, it's his top hat.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: He is considerably less tempermental than Elena.
Voiced By: Katsuyuki Konishi (JP); Chris Rickabaugh (EN)
An extroverted, out-going treasure hunter who lives off the coast of Fenith Island with his sea-faring grandfather, Bacchus, with whom he often disagrees with over the validity of his profession. Nevertheless, he is passionate about what he does, and displays competence at the task. Having a prankster personality, he is no stranger to reprimands and is rather expressive in his emotions and opinions. Upon seeing Sonja for the first time, he instantly falls in love with her.
- Expy: Looks remarkably similar to Daisuke from Digimon.
- Fiery Redhead: Given how Hot-Blooded he is, no surprises here.
- The Goggles Do Nothing: Indeed, for all intents and purposes, they are simply there to look cool.
- Interestingly, Kamina's English dub VA features in the dub, but as Father Gerard and the Goblin Pirate Captain instead of Joe.
- Improbable Hairstyle: His hair is suspiciously spiky, given the implied time period and setting.
- Love at First Sight: As stated above, with Sonja.
- The Prankster: Can be this at times, as previously mentioned.
- Raised By Grandparent: As stated, he lives with his grandfather, Bacchus, off Fenith Island's local pier, and the two tend to clash over the validity of his profession.
- Shout-Out: To Ghostbusters, in the dub.
Voiced By: Hideyuki Hayami (JP); Todd Haberkorn (EN)
A kind, though somewhat reticent, young man who co-runs the general store with his twin sister, Sierra, he is diligent in his work and takes pride in his profession, though is often exacerbated by his siblings lack of motivation and his constant need to reprimand her. He notably values chivalry, and will not stand for the unseemly actions of others, particularly if those actions are directed at women. Can sometimes be a bit socially awkward, particularly in concerns to Sonia.
- Awesome Mc Cool Name: He’s actually self-conscious about it, noting that “Bismark” sounds powerful and impressive while he is… well, not.
- Beware the Nice Ones: He will ''not'' just sit there and let men act untoward toward women, as can be seen here at 3:07.
- Character Development: His friendship events involve Aden and Sonja helping him with his shyness and inability to talk to women.
- Curtains Match the Window: Unlike his sister, has both brown hair and brown eyes.
- In official art, at least. In game, his model appears to have gold eyes like his sister.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Is a diligent and talented businessman, as opposed to Sarah's utter laziness.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is sometimes referred to as "Bismark" instead.
- Nice Guy: To everyone but those of unscrupulous intentions, of course.
- Megane: The only one to be so, in fact.
Beatrix (JP: Bonaparte)
Matriarch of the local sub-branch of the de Sainte-Coquille clan, the Hattain, and mother of Elektra, she is a bit of an eccentric that spends the better part of the day in the family's backyard attempting to dig up a buried fortune. Nevertheless, despite her somewhat neglectful ways, she sincerely cares for her daughter. Has the tendency to end words with random suffixes, and enjoys food.
- Big Eater: Largely seen when she acts as the host and head judge of the annual cooking competition. Electra says she eats five times as much as a normal person.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Her general personality and habits can lean toward being rather bizarre at times.
- Gender-Blender Name: Not only is Bonaparte's (JP Name) name typically associated with a male, but she's voiced by one as well.
- Gonk: Unforunately for her, she takes after the de Sainte-Coquille fathers.
- Hands-Off Parenting: She seems to be somewhat unaware that she has a daughter. As stated previously, her time is largely monopolized by searching for a supposed load of wealth, which thus leaves Electra not only to her own devices, but also those inherent with being Fenith Island's representative.
- Nice Hat: Resembles something akin to a sunhat and bedecked with tuffs of fur, butterfly accessories, and a white rose.
- Verbal Tic: Has a peculiar propensity for ending certain words with random suffixes.
Quinn (JP: Kilt)
Voiced By: Saki Fujita (JP); Hunter Mackenzie Austin (EN)
An orphan, though otherwise generally happy-go-lucky, young girl who lives at Fenith Island's church with her twin brother, Kelsey, she has a bright and cheerful personality, preferring to play outdoors than be stuck inside. Still, she is perceptive to her sibling's feelings, and so reacts to them accordingly and looks after him the best she can. Helps to clean the chapel in her spare time.
- Genki Girl: Not so much as other characters, though she is still very chipper.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Unsurprisingly, she wears pink, while Kelsey wears blue.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Whereas her brother prefers keeping to himself, she rather prefers to be out and about, doing something active.
- Theme Twin Naming: Kilt and Knit. The English names, Quinn and Kelsey also sound alike.
- Who Names Their Kid "Dude"??: It's a wonder what must have been going on in the heads of her parents when she was named. At least for the Japanese version, Quinn is a more sensible name.
- Zettai Ryouiki: Rank A, but with shorts.
Kelsey (JP: Knit)

An orphan, and debilitatingly shy, young boy who lives at Fenith Island's church with his twin sister, Quinn, he has a timid and somewhat sensitive demeanor, favoring time to himself and often opting to say little when prompted. Rather skittish, he regularly relies on his sister's guidance and lead in various situations. Reads books during his spare time, and seems to be a bit taken with Violet, around whom he often feels faint.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Unsurprisingly, he wears blue, while Quinn wears pink.
- Precocious Crush: On Violet, it seems.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: Whereas his sister is active and enjoys playing outside, he prefers to stay indoors reading books.
- Shrinking Violet: Is debilitatingly shy overall, though particularly so around Violet, as mentioned.
- Theme Twin Naming: Again, Kilt and Knit. As mentioned above, their English names sound alike too.
- Who Names Their Kid "Dude"??: Really, it's a wonder what must have been going on in the heads of his parents when he was named, too. Again, only for the Japanese names.

A traveling archeologist who visits Fenith Island twice a week, she has a fine eye for item identification, and so will appraise curiosities brought to her by the community's residents. An amiable individual with a calm matter of speech and an approachable demeanor, she is an all-around friendly person. Dresses in fine clothing, and is married.
- Curtains Match the Window: Can be seen in concerns to her violet hair and violet eyes.
- Encyclopaedic Knowledge: She has to be, at the very least, somewhat learned in order appraise the various and random items brought to her.
- Happily Married: Though she often travels away from her husband, she doesn't respond to any sort of flirting.
- Meganekko: And of the particularly scholarly sort.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is often referred to as "Juslyn."
Father Gerard (JP: Grey)
Voiced By: Kyle Hebert (EN)
A priest who resides over Fenith Island's church and caretaker of Quinn and Kelsey, he has a rather flamboyant personality and often refers to himself with feminine pronouns. An honest, forthright, and affable individual, he holds the community's trust, and so serves as an emotional guide of sorts. He is fond of cute things and persons, and has taken a bit of a liking to Aden in particular. Presides over the summer's beach activities, and has a scar under his left eye.
- Ambiguously Gay: Some of his lines toward Aden sound like outright flirting, and that's putting aside his flamboyant personality.
- Ambiguously Bi maybe, since, as stated above and below, he shows interest in both Aden and Violet.
- Retired Badass Preacher: Is apparently so strong that even after deserting his country's army in the middle of a war they realize he would be impossible to capture and opt to instead simply refer to him as being "on leave".
- Camp Straight: Despite his rather ambiguously gay behavior, he mentions how cute he thinks Violet is and that it is a shame he is a priest.
- Good Shepherd: One of the many reasons why the residents of Fenith Island like him so.
- Long Haired Prettyboy: A bit older than the standard.
- Scars Are Forever: As aforementioned, has a horizontal scar under his left eye.

Joe's alcoholic grandfather and guardian who lives off of Fenith Island's local pier in a houseboat, he is boisterous and rather outspoken, much to the chagrin of some at times. Has an adventurous attitude and generally attacks things with gusto, particularly fishing, of which he is particularly fond. Is a regular patron of the inn, "Sisters'," bar, and has a bit of a thing for Lily.
- The Alcoholic: Though, admittedly, he appears to drink simply because he enjoys it, and not for emotional reasons.
- Dirty Old Man: When he hears that Lily is participating in the Miss Fenith Island Contest, he becomes very...eager to get to the beach, to say the least.
- The Goggles Do Nothing: His appear to be there simply for show, as any use of them is currently unknown.
- Meaningful Name: "Bacchus" is generally associated with that of the Roman god of wine and revelry.
- Seadog Beard: Who else but him would have this?
- Scars Are Forever: He's got plenty of scars covering his arms, likely stemming from fishing expeditions of some sort.
The Goblin Pirate Captain
Voiced By: Kyle Hebert (EN)
Just as his title suggests, he's the captain of a band of goblin pirates that repeatedly causes minor annoyances for Aden and Sonja.
- Enemy Mine: While he and his crew do antagonize Aden and Sonja, they aren't fighting on the side of the Masked Man either. He realizes this toward the end and tries to help.
- Goldfish Poop Gang
- Heel–Face Turn: Toward the end, he realizes he's been antagonizing the wrong people and vows to change his ways.
- Please Kill Me If It Satisfies You: Before his Heel–Face Turn, he initially asks Aden to behead him. He doesn't, of course, because he doesn't have time for him.
The Masked Man
Voiced By: Patrick Seitz (EN)
A mysterious, ominous individual who serves as the main antagonist, he ardently pursues Aden and Sonja and constantly causes grievances for them, sometimes opting to physically confront the two if the need should arise. Has a unnatural fixation with the world's various elemental temples and the orbs they house, as well as the mythical Legendary Golem, which appears to be one of the main reasons for his duplicitous actions. Additionally, has a great need for the Spirit Song, and, while he can sing it, often targets others with the same ability. Later revealed to be Sonja's possessed body.
- A God Am I
- Big Bad: As previously stated, he serves as the main antagonist to Aden and Sonja.
- Dark Magic: Uses this in conjunction with a large - and rather ornate - broadsword.
- Body Snatcher: Steals Sonja's form at the beginning of the game in order to accomplish various ends, particularly exploiting her ability to use the Spirit Song.
- Magic Music: Has the ability to sing the Spirit Song, as mentioned, though his has considerably more malevolent effects.
- Malevolent Masked Men: ...Obviously.
- People Puppets: Considering his true identity, this is the game's most notable example.
- The Reveal: The Masked Man? He's really Sonja's possessed body, as previously stated numerous times by this point.
- Samus Is a Girl Samus Is A Girl's Body: While that is definitely not a female voice coming from under his robe, he stole Sonja's body, thus putting this trope into effect.
