Revya

Revya (male)

The Silent Protagonist of our story. Gender and name are determined by you note . As far as personality goes, Revya is apparently a fairly nice person and not as quiet as you'd expect for a silent protagonist. Also, increasingly sarcastic. However, Revya is almost as mysterious of an entity as Gig, the Master of Death that almost destroyed the world.

After the primary and apparently canon story route, a different version of events is unlocked with Revya having a much less pleasant personality.

Revya (female)

  • Ancestral Weapon: The Onyx Blade. It belongs to the Median bloodline and Revya is able to wield it because his/her soul is that of Median's dead son.
  • BFS: Due to the sprite sizes, the Onyx Blade is almost as long as Revya is tall
  • Black Swords Are Better
  • Canon Name: Revya, of course.
  • Chainmail Bikini: Female Revya. Who, for some reason, is wearing nothing but a bra to cover her Thorax in her official art.
  • Character Development: As the story goes on, Gig's personality rubs off on Revya, and thus gets a few lines like this.
    Revya (In response to Levin sniffing out an enemy): Woof, Woof, doggy.
    Revya (When Danette suggests hotpods will fall from the sky): That�s a pretty stupid thing to say.
  • Conveniently an Orphan
  • Cool Sword
  • Curtains Match the Window: Red hair and red eyes.
  • Cutting Off The Branches: While Revya can be male/female depending on the player's choice, Revya appears as a girl in Disgaea 3.
  • Dark Is Edgy: Two of her techs are called Demon Blast and Demon Force, and both are about as dark-looking as their name implies.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Revya's still a good person despite the trope above. Averted in the Demon Path.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Becomes much more noticeable as the story progresses, but does show shades of this even early on.
  • Demonic Possession: Sort of. While Gig does inhabit her body, he doesn't have any control due to Revya's strong will and a seal placed by Layna.
  • Eleventh Hour Superpower: After eating the soul of Gestahl, Revya gains the Demon Force ground tech during the last battle of the normal campaign. It can be used on repeat plays during the whole game, however.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: In the Danette ending, she displays feelings for Revya regardless if Revya is a guy or girl. Although she acts more flustered in the male version and treats her like a BFF threatening to 'tickle' her in the female one.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Levin in the Demon Path.
  • Friendly Rival: Towards Danette.
  • Gender Bender: Female Revya. She was Lord Median's son in her past life, and reincarnated as a female. Of course, it's averted if you chose male.
  • The Hero
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: The choice in weaponry was already decided for him/her, though.
  • Hidden Elf Village: Grew up in one for ten years.
  • I Am Who?: Revya is revealed to be a World Eater and reincarnation of Median's child by the real Layna in the world of Drazil.
  • Interspecies Romance: Depends on the ending, played straight in the Danette and Juno male endings and the Levin and Gig female endings, implied in the Danette female ending.
  • Kid with the Leash
  • Knight of Cerebus: The amount of evil committed by Revya in the Demon Path is the main reason why it's so dark.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Revya's most notable bad match ups is the Gypsies and the Gideons.
  • Laughing Mad: In the Bad End of the Demon Path.
  • Jack of All Stats: Bordering on Lightning Bruiser; Revya is one of the most balanced and easy to use of the characters in the game, he/she has very few poor match ups, and his/her ground Techs are all around useful.
  • May-December Romance: With Juno in the Male Revya's ending.
  • Made of Iron: Possibly. Gig remarks after Endorph destroys Raksha with Psycho Burgundy . that despite being the closest to the explosion s/he was unscathed by the blast.
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Doesn't get any worse than The Devourlord
  • Omnicidal Maniac: In the Demon Path. To put it lightly.
  • Only Sane Man: Most of the time. However, being with Danette and Gig for so long has some effects. Obviously, averted in the demon path.
  • Power at a Price: Could easily destroy the World Eaters on a caprice should he/she choose to use Gig's powers. However the more Revya uses the more likely Gig will devour his/her soul.
  • Purely Aesthetic Gender: The choice of gender only affects the multiple endings in the slightest of ways.
  • The Quiet One: All of Revya's responses are short and to the point.
  • Red Baron: The Devourlord
  • Red-Headed Hero
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: In the Demon Path's Good Ending.
  • Silent Protagonist: Subverted in that s/he is STILL able to communicate with the others through occasional dialogue choices, and for the sake of moving the plot, there tends to be one option of what to say. When you get other options, it's when you are getting Relationship Values or routes to other endings.
    • Lampshaded in Disgaea 3 where Mao gives her a voice for use in battle and wonders why anyone would make a game where the main character doesn't talk.
  • Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum: "It doesn't matter. It was fun."
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Demon Blast. Let's just say it involves Beam Spam and in the Demon Path, it was the Finishing Move Revya used to destroy all of existence.
  • Unwitting Pawn: He/She ends up being Virtuous and Haephnes' unknowing pawn in restoring the cycle of souls.
  • Victorious Childhood Friend: If you chose for Revya to be a male, he ends up married to Danette in her ending.
  • Villain Protagonist: In the Demon Path.
    • Villainous Friendship: With Gig in the Demon Path. In the good ending, Vigilance even admits that as horrible as their actions were, he definitely had a lot of fun being with Revya.
  • We Cannot Go On Without You
  • Where I Was Born and Razed: If you decide to go through the Demon Path, Revya's first act of villainy is to kill everyone in his/her village.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Revya devours Gig in the Demon Path.

Gig

Voiced by: Akira Sasanuma (JP), Yuri Lowenthal (EN)

Gig is a legendary monster, an invading Master of Death who laid waste to the world before being sealed by the daughter of the legendary Median the Conqueror, a young woman named Layna. Though she apparently fell during the battle, she is still alive as the leader of the village Revya hails from.

Though loud, vicious and constantly urging Revya towards murder and mayhem, much to his dismay he can't force Revya to do anything. Furthermore, as they get closer, odd memories show up of an identical looking man with a completely opposite personality that Gig does not recognize.


  • Almighty Janitor: Gig is a Master of Death, technically a subordinate to the World Rulers and equal to a Master of Life. He is more powerful than either, killing both Drazil, Gamma and Joules combined in a Single-Stroke Battle in the normal ending. In the Demon Path, Revya uses Gig's full power to kill Drazil and Haephnes, and neither of them are able to stop him/her.
  • Badass: Anyone who can give Zetta a run for his money in power and trash-talking has earned this.
    • Its to the point where even when he's a DLC character he still doesn't use all of his strength and gives the other characters a hard time without breaking a sweat.
  • Bad Boss: Thuris and Raksha both mention that when they were rampaging through Haephness that Gig was very abusive towards them, hence part of why they want him dead.
  • Big Eater: The Vitali ending says that he stayed a restaurant that served hotpods for three days and ate its entire stock.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy
  • Came Back Wrong
  • Chewing the Scenery: Gig does this a lot in the flashbacks.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Gig does not have the cleanest mouth around.
  • Comedic Sociopath: For the most part, there are some points it's NOT played humorously.
  • Consummate Liar: Although he does drop hints when he's lying, no one picks up on it. It helps that the target of most of his lies is Danette.
    • Blatant Lies: It's always obvious when he's lying or hiding something.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Deal with the Devil: Tries this with Revya.
  • Death Equals Redemption: And also earns him a reincarnation.
  • Don't Fear The Reaper: As Vigilance.
  • The Dragon: To Revya in the demon path. He steps in to take over when you're indisposed and is generally your right-hand-man.
  • Fallen Hero: Was tossed down rather than fell.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Vigilance was pretty restrained, Gig is the single hammiest character in the game.
  • Evil Plan: He plots to seize Revya's body, and doesn't hide it for a second. He finally gets his chance during the final showdown with Drazil, but thanks to his Character Development, does so only to destroy Drazil, knowingly killing himself in the process and saving Revya's life.
  • Flanderization: When he appears as DLC in Disgaea4, he's basically a cross between his good and evil personalities, with him being Ax-Crazy, but getting talked out of destroying the Netherworld by Desco.
  • The Grim Reaper: Gig is a 'master of death' a being who should technically do the standard duties of the grim reaper.
  • Heel-Face Turn: The exploration of this is the gist of Gig's Character Development, and played straight in the end.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath
  • Heroic Sacrifice
  • Hey, You!: He rarely ever calls anyone by their given name, but if he does have to call them by something, it's usually very insulting ('Stupid Cow' for Danette and 'Sister Loving Man Cow' for Levin). The only exception is Revya, (who he calls 'Kid' or 'Soulmate' if he's being nice), The World Eaters, and Drazil.
    • Well really nobody refers to Revya by name, Gig even lampshades this in Danette's ending.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In Danette's ending he comments that it's not nice that she never refers to Revya by name. Repeat, the guy who curses every other scene and refers to most of the cast by insulting nicknames tries to call somebody rude.
  • Idiot Ball: In the Normal Path he frequently tries to convinces Revya to give him control and just as many times says he'll destroy the world if he gets control, so not surprisingly Revya always refuses.
  • The Imp
  • Jerk Ass -> Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • The Lancer: Personality-wise, at least. Gig is verbose where Revya is mostly silent, sadistic and selfish where Revya is kind and selfless, cynical and sarcastic where Revya is naive and honest, and very fond of playing shoulder devil to his 'soulmate'.
  • Laughably Evil: Easily the funniest character in the game.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: when Gig was revived by Drazil, all of his memories as Vigilance were erased, though over the course of the game he gradually regains them.
  • Large Ham: Especially in the English version.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: During the Good Ending of the Demon Path, Gig snaps back to his senses as Vigilance and despairs over the crimes he committed as Gig, vowing to set things right and atone.
    • Hoist by His Own Petard: In the other ending, Gig quite abruptly regrets giving Revya so much power when Revya uses it all to devour him.
  • Noble Demon: Half way through the game when Gig gets his Character Development he becomes this.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: As he often says, he wants to destroy everything, except hotpods.
  • Pop Cultured Badass: He's phoney descriptions of the World Eaters are basically Shout Outs to Superman, the Martian Man Hunter, and The Flash. Revya even lampshades that he got the first one "from somewhere else."
  • Sinister Scythe
  • Small Name, Big Ego: While he can back up all the bragging he makes about how strong he is, he thinks to highly of his intelligence to the point where he at times seems to fancy himself as the Only Sane Man.
  • Technical Pacifist: As Vigilance. It's no wonder Gig wouldn't want to go back to his normal personality.
  • Theme Music Power-Up: "BAD BOYS" plays = Gig will be sarcastic. "Desperado" plays = Gig will own someone. "Rockin' Rocks" plays = Gig will destroy someone.
  • Token Evil Teammate
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: As Vigilance he was reasonably intelligent. As Gig, he's total idiot.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Hotpods
  • Tsundere: According to Disgaea 4.
  • Villainous Friendship: With Revya in the Demon Path. In the good ending, as horrified as Vigilance is of all the things he's committed as Gig, he still fondly remembers his time with Revya and hopes that they get together and do something fun should they ever meet again.
  • Villain Protagonist: He serves as the other main character to Revya but he remains a villain for the half the game before his character development steps in and then it switches to Anti-Hero at the very least.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He looks like your classic white haired psycho and certainly acts genocidal at first, but mellows out some as time goes on.
  • You Will Be Spared: Hotpods

Danette

Voiced by: Chiwa Saito (JP), Amanda Winn Lee (EN)

Danette is Revya's best and perhaps only friend in the tiny village. She is a Sepp, a race of humanoid with horns, hooves and immense speed. Thanks to being quite dim, Gig starts calling her "Stupid Cow" and she returns the favor with "You In There." She has no magical powers and her weapons, though magical, are not nearly as impressive as the Onyx Blade. Despite that, her speed and power are not to be trifled with: She's beaten Revya in almost every duel they've ever had.


  • Action Girl
  • Badass Normal: It's not emphasized much due to being a complete idiot, but she is in fact an amazing fighter, both instory and in gameplay. Instory, she apparently almost always beats Revya before she acquires the Onyx Blade and is entrusted with killing Revya if Gig takes her over. In gameplay, she has three excellent tactics, good offense, high speed, high act and acceptable defense.
  • Bi the Way: Her ending varies very little depending on gender. If male, she says the protagonist will have to learn how to take care of babies with the implication that she'll be having them. If female, she's less nervous there, but with either gender the last thirty seconds or so end with her blushing and stuttering awkwardly because she drew the protagonist in their underwear in a letter to Euphoria, hinting that she never calls them by their name because it would be embarrassing.
  • Break the Cutie: Regardless of the path taken, Danette is going to go through hell.
    • In the normal route the memories of her parent's death hits her near the end of the game and while she doesn't react originally, the fact that a few minutes later her substitute parent Layna is stabbed in the back by the friend she's been traveling with the majority of the game. And if Layna's death doesn't break her, Gig's sacrifice does when she finally breaks down into real tears when its all over.
    • In the demon route she witnesses Revya go crazy as s/he slaughters everyone she knows and loves and has to take up a new appearance to make sure no one knows who she is. She's the only one who continues to believe in Revya until the end even knowing it's hopeless. She even lets Revya kill her so she can become a Crimson Tear. In the good demon ending, she stays with Revya in the Onyx blade as his/her only friend while she's dead for good in the bad demon ending.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Hinted at in her ending. Regardless of gender.
  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: Her mother and father were both very loving parents.
  • Determinator: She will follow Layna's orders no matter what is. Going so far as to force her way through barely stable portal to another world.
  • The Ditz: Gig's nickname for her isn't too far off the mark. Even Revya starts having difficulty defending her after Gig rubs off on her a little.
  • Friendly Rival: Towards Revya.
  • Happily Adopted: Despite the trope above, she still considers Virtuous to be a grand-mother figure.
  • Hey, You!: It's claimed early on that the only person whose name she can remember is Layna's. She won't call her best friend by name and continues to call Gig 'You in there' even after he's not in there anymore.
  • I Gave My Word: Promised Layna to watch over Revya and intervene if Gig became too much for her to resist.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Male Revya in her ending. Same with Female Revya if you interpret the ending differently...
  • Is It Something You Eat?: Revolution? Is it edible?
  • Knife Nut: Her Weapon of Choice.
  • The Lancer
  • Parental Abandonment: Her parents were in a religious war with the Thurists.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Especially at the beginning when she constantly insults Revya and considers herself better than him/her. Gig usually puts her in her place though.
  • Super Speed: A racial trait of Sepps.
  • Tsundere: Type A when it comes to Revya and Gig. Tybe B with it comes to Layna.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Lady Layna.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair
  • You Are Worth Hell: In the Good Ending of the Demon Path, Revya gets sealed into the Oynx Blade. But Danette, not wanting her (former) best friend to have to suffer alone, has Dio seal her soul into the blade as well despite the fact that Revya killed her earlier. And to top it all off, she sings the lullaby Revya sung to her when she was little, so that (s)he can sleep better.

Levin

Voiced by: Tatsuhisa Suzuki (JP), Liam O Brien (EN)

A Sepp and one of Christophe's guards that is always immensely worried about his sister. Coupled with his rash behavior and slightly stupid attitude, he tends to cause a lot of problems for the group. He's generally partnered with Vitali, a spy and cleric.


  • The Atoner: Seems to have become this in his epilogue.
  • Becoming the Mask: There's hints of it after he regains his true body, particularly the fact that he's still somewhat flustered around Trish. If your Relationship Values are high enough, Euphoria tells Revya that she can't really tell the difference between Levin and Raksha anymore, which eventually leads into his epilogue, where he and Revya Walk the Earth together.
  • The Big Guy: Alongside Grunzford.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: He has a crush on Trish, but can't get the words out, even when he's revealed to Raksha, his feelings appear to genuine. He's unable to do the same with Female Revya during his epilogue.
  • The Ditz: Bless him.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Towards Trish.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners/ Relationship Upgrade: His epilogue suggests the former for male Revya and the latter for female Revya.
  • Hidden Depths
  • Hopeless Suitor: Towards Trish.
  • Hot-Blooded: Even has an ability named this.
  • Idiot Hero: Levin isn't the brightest guy around, but he makes up for it in passion.
  • Journey to Find Oneself: After getting revived at the end of the game, Levin, who up until that point considered himself nothing more than the empty husk used by Raksha to achieve his goal, now questions why someone as seemingly pointless as him was brought back to life. His epilogue shows that he sets out Walking the Earth in hopes of finding some meaning to his unwarranted second chance at life.
  • Knight Templar Big Brother: Not exactly fond of Endorph getting close to his sister.
  • The Nose Knows: He's able to track Thuris using this. Gig and even Revya naturally call him out on this. This is because he's a World Eater though and knows the location of the others.
  • Power Fist: His Weapon of Choice.
  • Super Speed: Sepps share this trait, though Levin is especially known for this.
  • Those Two Guys: With Vitali.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Played for drama. Levin gets revived near the end of the game, to the confusion of everyone including himself. This is a big deal because Levin wasn't actually a person, but a soulless body being worn by the Soul Eater Raksha putting on a false persona, thus giving no reason for him to come back as Levin. This leads to him having an identity crisis and ultimately pulling off a Heel-Face Turn of sorts.
  • Walking Spoiler: The fact that most of his personality traits are indeed an act, and he is actually a soulless body being occupied by Raksha, one of the three World Eaters.
  • Walking the Earth: His epilogue reveals this to be his fate after returning to life. Due to having absolutely no idea why he's alive again and too guilt-ridden to return to see his friends and family, Levin goes on a journey to find the meaning to his existence. Depending on how close they were with him, Revya can join him.

Vitali

Voiced by: Derek Stephen Prince (EN)

Vitali is a friend of Levin's and a spy for Christophe. He enjoys cooking and wishes to open a restaurant.


Juno

Juno is one of the Nereid leaders and is immensely protective of her adopted "son" Penn. She's aggressive, but fairly reasonable.


Grunzford

Grunzford is a grumpy old Redflank, a giant bull man. He used to live in the same village as Revya, but left in protest due to Layna's plan to fuse Gig to a human host. He is not very talkative when it comes to explaining why he's working with the group.


"Dio"

Dio of the Evil Eye is a hereditary name and title held by a mighty clan of dracosages, known to travel with with the undead Blazing Gestahl and a pair of wolves known as Yavis and Parin. However, he seems strangely incompetent when confronted and is not taken seriously by anyone. He is a recurring boss fight in the game.


Tricia

Voiced by: Mai Nakahara (JP), Wendee Lee (EN)

Tricia is the daughter of an extremely rich merchant. She's very idealistic and kind, but also naive and overly trusting. She was helped by Grunzford in the past and seems to consider him a mentor while Levin has a crush on her that he never has the nerve to act on. She prefers to be called Trish.


  • Break the Cutie: Both paths aren't that nice to her but she only makes it out alive in one of them.
    • In the normal path her adoptive father gets kidnapped and she has to watch him get murdered by Shauna this was actually a very good thing. Then later she finds out that she had an older sister and witnesses her death to Scarlet Iago. Finally the guy that was crushing in other turns out to be the third World Eater and before she can talk to Levin and get him to change his mind, she's teleported out of the area resulting in the battle that would kill Levin. She then mourns for his death.
    • In the demon path She gets raped by her adoptive father resulting in her going insane. It won't be long before she finally takes her own life from the horror she's been through.
  • The Chick
  • Dub Name Change: Her name in the Japanese version is Driesche.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: What she becomes in her epilogue.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Easily the sweetest of the heroes. And a blonde.
  • Long Lost Sibling: Shauna is her older sister.
  • Memento MacGuffin: Her hair ornament, a keepsake left from her mother. Actually, it's from her sister, Shari aka Shauna.
  • The Ojou
  • The Ophelia: All the way, in The Demon Path.
  • Parental Abandonment: When she was really young, she was separated from her father and sister. Some time later, she loses her adoptive father, but that was for the best.
  • Rape as Drama: In the Demon Path.
  • Sanity Slippage: In the Demon Path, she gets raped by Hawthorne, but manages to escape death thanks to Shauna. She becomes increasingly insane and suicidal until her death.
  • Wendee Lee

Pinot and Agrippa

Pinot and Agrippa are probably the most minor members of the party. They are acquaintances of "Dio" and rather like him, though they don't respect him either.


Lujei Piche

An unexpected unlockable character, Lujei escaped her world and starts exploring others, screwing them up in the process. It appears she has a connection to Endorph...


  • Back from the Dead: Unclear, she was a ghost in her own game
  • Berserk Button: Being reminded of her death by poisoning sent her into a psychotic fit of rage.
  • Boobs of Steel: More of the Glass Cannon type. She can throw down some powerful magic. Also, she's quite stacked, giving Shauna and Alexemia a run for their money.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Hoo-boy, she's such a nut case that even Gig is freaked out by her.
  • Flanderization: YMMV on this, since she didn't have a lot of screen time in Grim Grimoire.
  • Glass Cannon: Has the best INT attacks out of your playable characters. Can't take a hit worth a dime.
  • Karma Houdini: She sent Sulfer back Ivoir, rendering everything the cast of Phantom Brave did to banish him in the first place pointless, and she never suffers any repercussions for it.
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: Her Special Attack.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Just ask Mevy, the talking skull of her dead lover that she carries around on her staff.
  • Power Floats
  • Psychotic Manchild: An extremely violent one that can barely go a few words without talking about murder.
  • Shout-Out: All of her movesets? They're all of the Arcane Summons from Grim Grimoire. Which goes into Irony levels due to the fact that her student learned Necromancy from her. That could mean Lujei had some skills when she was alive.
  • Spanner in the Works: Specifically, she's the one who sent Sulfur back to the world of Phantom Brave as a Bonus Boss, rendering the sacrifices involved pointless. Endorph was not happy to hear this.
  • Stable Time Loop: During the flashback where Median kills Vilgilance, if you answer "You must've been pissed" you find out that Lujei sends you back in time to fight Median. If you win, you find out that thanks to this, Virtuous finds out a way to fuse souls, thus making the plan of fusing Gig's and Revya's soul possible. Which also gave Drazil two souls for the last two World Eaters, Thuris and Raksha. So in short... Lujei helped SAVE the world! ...And gave Drazil the two souls he needed to create the last two death machines... But hey, it's Lujei.
  • A Wizard Did It: She IS the Wizard.
  • Yandere

    Other Protagonists 

Haephnes

Haephnes is the goddess of the world which shares her name, one of the two chief gods ranking above those such as the masters of life and death. She is very soft, gentle and motherly.


Lady Layna

Voiced by: Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (EN)

Lady Layna is an elderly woman that is the leader of the village where the game begins. Two centuries before, she sacrificed herself to seal away Gig because she could not kill him. Though she apparently died in that fight, she is still around even in the present, though she sleeps for extended periods to conserve strength. She is a mentor for Revya and Danette, the latter of whom seems to almost worship her. She's more manipulative than she lets on.


Christophe

Christophe is a wealthy merchant who runs his own town, which acts as a mission hub for the game. He is interested by Revya and Gig and employs the pair to handle some work around the area, which coincides with their own goals. Gig does not trust him since he's keeping secrets and not even trying to hide the fact, but he does mean well.


  • Big Damn Heroes: The guy comes in with a small army to help Revya during their fight against Feinne the second time.
  • Demoted to Extra: He gets only one scene in the Demon Path, after that, you never hear from him again.
  • Good Smoking: Smokes a pipe.
  • Heroic BSOD Has a minor one after Cuthbert kills himself out of guilt. He picks himself together quickly, though.
  • My Greatest Failure: It's suggested that he betrayed his best friend Lobo when they were younger, thus causing the latter to become evil.
  • Non-Action Guy: Doesn't directly fight himself, but supplies soldiers for Revya.
  • Self-Made Man: Is successful due to his honest work ethic.
  • The Team Benefactor

Galahad

Voiced by: Derek Stephen Prince (EN)

Galahad is a chevalier for Raide and at the start of the game is on duty watching Feinne, though he's sulky and self centered. After he loses a fight to the protagonist, he is discharged by Thorndyke, something he resents for most of the story.


  • Break the Haughty: In the Demon Path, big time.
  • Character Development
  • Envy/The Starscream: Towards Thorndyke. He starts taking a level in badass after realizing Thorndyke was a really noble guy who was unfairly executed. In the Demon Path, however, when Thorndyke is forced to join Revya, he ridicules him.
  • Evil Is Dumb
  • Heel-Face Turn
  • Out of Focus: In the Normal path, after showing remarkable growth up to the fight with Feinne, he quite suddenly drops out of the storyline at about the same time as Juno.
    • Justified; he was elected to help rebuild Raide after Feinne lazered it to the ground.
  • Sanity Slippage: Galahad becomes the only real source of humor in the Demon Path because of the spectacular way he loses it.
  • Redemption Promotion: Becomes the Prime Minister of New Raide.
  • Took a Level in Badass: To a certain extent, he's considerably more courageous just before the fight with Feinne.
  • Warm-Up Boss: The first real foe the player faces, Galahad still isn't much of a threat.

Alexemia

Queen of the Nereids and the mother to them all. Though she can't walk on land, she has Juno be her eyes and ears for her in the outside world. She has immense healing powers, though she cannot use them freely.


  • Cast From HP: She has a miraculous healing power, but it uses up a bit of her life force.
  • Demoted to Extra: Only gets one scene in the Demon Path, sadly, and it's being summoned to heal everyone after Revya beats the crap out of them.
  • Healing Hands
  • Her Heart Will Go On: Admits that she was in love with someone in the Demon Path(Normal Path hinted that her lover was one of the kings of Raide). It's implied that she wishes to see him.
  • Karen Strassman
  • Ms. Fanservice: Alexemia is practically naked, for Haephnes sake! She's only wearing a crown and a freakin' seashell bra.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Averted, somewhat. She's more of the standard mermain since she can't last on land too much, and she has the fish lower half.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure
  • Seashell Bra: Takes it a step further; Alexemia has Seashell nipple-covers
  • Team Mom: For the Nereids. This trope is more literal than usual cases becasue it's implied that she IS all of the Nereids' mother.

Penn

Penn is a human child adopted by the Nereids. They view him somewhere between a son and a their future sperm donor as the Nereids do not have any males. He seems unconcerned with this plan for better or worse since while he likes the Nereids, he likes well endowed women and the Nereids are all rather "streamlined." He's also a rather mouthy kid. He goes around dressed as a girl, presumably because Nereids don't know how treat male children.


  • Cheerful Child
  • Childhood Marriage Promise: Asks female Revya to marry him in Juno's ending. To Revya's chagrin, she doesn't seem to have any say in it.
  • Creepy Child: In the Demon Path. He's Ax-Crazy, and doesn't care about his own life, actually finds it cool when Revya doesn't care that Thuris uses him as human shield. Even Gig is creeped out by this.
  • Dirty Kid: He loves big boobs. For this reason in Juno's ending, if Revya is female, he asks her to marry him, much to her chagrin.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Thorndyke is his father.
  • Stay with the Aliens: When he meets his dad, he decides to stay with the Nereids (even as an adult).
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: For whatever reason, he's always seen in a dress and pigtails.
    • It's because he was raised by the Nereids, who are a Single Gender Race and therefore have no idea how to raise a male.
  • Wife Husbandry: Is the target of a reverse example. He's bound for a very... interesting life.

Endorph

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (JP), Troy Baker (EN)

Endorph is a mysterious leader of a band of thieves, though he is quite honorable and operates on a Robin Hood style of business. At the start, he's still traveling with Shauna and her band, though their conflicting interests cause them to part ways. He's a sort of Memetic Badass in universe for those of know of him. His goals are unclear, but seem to match Revya's. Unfortunately, he's not really on Revya's side either and more likely to drag her into battles she just happened to stumble across.


    Antagonists 

Feinne

The first of the titular World Eaters encountered. Gig says she's his favorite World Eater, as she is the most powerful and obedient of the three. She has little will or malice of her own and has spent the centuries since Gig's defeat quietly sitting outside a major city and only defending herself when attacked. That said, when you attack her, you have basically no chance of winning due to her immense power.


  • And I Must Scream: After Resillience died, her soul was stolen by Drazil and turned into Gig's most faithful and powerful World Eater. Unlike Thuris and Raksha, she's not actually evil: She's just trapped in a body that acts regardless of her will.
  • Came Back Wrong: She used to be one of the overseer gods like Vigilance and Virtuous, but committed suicide to become a human to understand the human perspective better. Unfortunately, Drazil stole her soul and turned her into a World Eater.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Battles against her are always this in the Normal Path, either in your favor or hers. The Demon Path often has you and her on even footing.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: Feinne is too powerful to defeat without tapping into Gig's power, and Gig's power comes with a heavy cost. If you do defeat her when you're not supposed to, you end up fighting Asagi.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: At the end of the game, she and Thuris have their souls dragged back to Drazil and reconstituted. Thuris is quickly devoured, but Feinne begs for Gig to kill her. Unlike the first time, he grants her wish.
  • Wave Motion Gun: Her normal form of offense.

Thuris

Thuris is the second World Eater encountered. He is the weakest but most cunning of the three and operates his own cult that is a constant thorn in the side of the protagonists throughout the game.


  • Big Bad Wannabe
  • The Chessmaster: Subverted; he's supposed to be one, but the problem for him is Soul Nomad is a Gambit Pileup from the word go, and he's got at least four other chessmasters he's competing against.
  • Fate Worse than Death: He's resurrected by the Drazillian Masters of Life and Death just to be consumed by them near the end of the game, though this could be considered Kick the Son of a Bitch instead. They try to do the same to Feinne, but Revya and Gig intervene and Mercy Kill her.
  • For the Evulz: His reason for the creating the Scarlet Iago? He felt like it.
  • A God Am I: Since normal people can't see him, he's managed to create a massive cult known as the Thurists.
  • Guide Dang It: Thuris is the first World Eater type enemy you get into a real battle with, and can be a tricky foe until you figure out the easiest way to take them down. The trick is, they can't move, so stay out of his range until everything else on the field is dead and then muster your forces and power yourself up outside his range, then move in for the kill. Unlike other enemies, World Eater types cannot counter attack, so you can beat on him with impunity during your turns.
  • Hearing Voices: Normal people can't see him, so he's managed to convince hundreds that he's a god with a disembodied voice.
  • Informed Ability: The World Eater who is supposed to be the best schemer of the three winds up Out-Gambitted by every other chessmaster in the story.
  • Jack of All Stats: Compared to Fienne and Raksha, he balances between physical and magic based stats.
  • Large Ham
  • Laughing Mad: In the Normal Path. So much that it even rivals the The Joker's and actually frightens Gig. Story-wise, it's averted in the Demon Route.
  • Out-Gambitted: See above.
  • Plaguemaster: The creator of Scarlet Iago, the deadly disease ravaging the land.
  • Smug Snake
  • Taking You with Me: When he's utterly beaten, Thuris self-destructs to spread a cloud of pure Scarlet Iago upon the party to try to kill them too.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: He actually is a certifiable threat the first time you see him, but the second encounter is when he gets seriously Out-Gambitted, and since you've already worked out how to beat him the first time, the rematch is much simpler.

Raksha

Raksha is the third and final of Gig's World Eaters. He has been inactive for years and is sealed by the family of Dio inside a cursed forest. He is a mysterious figure before being confronted, though Gig claims he's more The Brute than anything and thinks little of him.


  • Big Bad Friend: While not quite the Big Bad, Raksha is one of the biggest chess masters in the entire game, and spends most of it as your good buddy Levin.
  • The Brute: The strongest physically of the World Eaters, but not big on brain power. Well, not quite; he's become one of Soul Nomad's many chessmasters since Gig was sealed.
  • Character Development: From Levin's perpective anyway: By the time of his revival, Levin appears to have lost the hot blooded and boisterous persona both he and Raksha had and is instead quiet, pensive and philosophical. This is undoubtedly because he's just as confused as everyone else about why he was brought back to life and has started questioning his existence. Thankfully, it seems to have made him into a genuinely good person.
  • The Chessmaster: He spends most of the game disguised as Levin to in a plan to kill anybody he considers a threat to his Evil Plan (the full details of which aren't stated), consisting of Thuris, Fienne, Layna, and Gig. Succeeds in his plan to kill Layna by having Dio trap everyone in a seal so she would come to release them so he could get the jump on her after killing the other two World Eaters.
  • Climax Boss: Even knowing how to fight World Eaters from fighting Thuris twice, and with the members of the Hidden Village on your side, Raksha is still no slouch; defeating him really comes down to taking him down before he can smash all your characters into paste.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy
  • Dark Reprise: His battle theme is a remix of Levin's theme.
  • Demonic Possession: of Levin's body. He bought two slaves ten years ago and crushed their souls. Euphoria became a puppet while Levin's original soul was simply booted out and replaced with Raksha's.
  • Disc One Final Boss: Much of the cast thinks that plot is over since they didn't recall that World Eaters aren't the root of the problem.
  • Faking the Dead: He faked Euphoria's death and took her away to keep her from Endorph. Later, he claims he killed her himself. If you have enough relationship points with him Euphoria refuses to stay where he put her and gets between the Endorph/Raksha confrontation.
  • A God Am I: The ultimate goal of his Evil Plan
  • Good Feels Good: In the Demon Path.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Seems to have graduated to this in his epilogue, where he is clearly shown to deeply regret his actions and worry about his former friends but continously attempts to get Revya to leave him alone by threatening to eat them.
  • Large Ham: In his real body, rivaling Gig in this respect.
  • The Mole: To Revya's group, as Levin.
  • Kill It with Fire: His attacks consist of breathing fire and growing pair of Wolverine Claws made of fire attacking with them.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: As Levin.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: He talks normally, but Gig noted that he's learned 'many big angry words'. Raksha said that he's feeling verbose.
  • Spanner in the Works: In the Normal Path, nobody saw him or his plan coming.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: Reversed. If Gig's reactions are anything to imply, Raksha's taken a level in genius instead.
  • Wolverine Claws: Made of fire.

Kanan

Kanan is the leader of the Thurists, the cult that worships Thuris as a god. He looks like a woman after altering his appearance. Contrasting his waifish appearance is his intense insanity and sadism.


Thorndyke

Voiced by: Dave Wittenberg (EN)

Thorndyke is the honorable commander of the Knights of Raide. He lost his son years ago, but received his current position not long after. Though considered strangely young for the position, he has easily proved his worth. He is very noble and honorable to the point where the reclusive Nereids actually do value his word. He is attempting to keep the group from attacking Feinne as she is inactive and only causes problems when confronted.


  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Grand Cordon of Raide, everyone.
  • Bad Ass Boast: "I... I don't understand you. But I cannot let such anarchists live! Your death has arrived!"
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Dies rather abruptly in the Normal Path.
  • Fallen Hero: In the Demon Path
  • Hero Antagonist: Embodies this trope. Even the Nereids he opposes are aware that he is a noble, just man.
  • Laughing Mad: In the Demon Path, does this after Kanan convinces him that he's always been a Blood Knight at nature and that his heroic past was only an excuse for him to kill.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: To Penn. Penn decides to stay because he's already made his choice to grow up and live with the Nereids. Still, he's proud of the fact that his father is a renowned hero.
  • Sanity Slippage: In the Demon Path.

Lobo

Male Sepp who is the leader of the Yesterwind, a Black Market organization that kidnaps and smuggles children.


Cuthbert

Cuthbert is Christophe's younger brother. He doesn't appear often, so his goals are quite mysterious but implied to be rather shady.


  • Combat Medic
  • The Dragon: For Lobo.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: More of working with less honorable people, Cuthburt really cares about his big brother. The Demon Path reveals that Cuthburt joined Yesterwind because Christophe was ill and he needed the money to fund for a cure to save him.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Vitali.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Kills Lobo to ensure Christophe's hands stay clean.
  • Liquid Assets: His tech Glutton Gain drains the entire opposing party of HP and bestows it upon Cuthbert's party.
  • Only Sane Man: Shares this with Shauna and Lobo in the Demon Path, but then Shauna too goes insane and Lobo abandons Revya.
  • Out, Damned Spot!
  • Start of Darkness: He began working for Lobo to pay off medicine for Christophe.
  • The Strategist: For Shauna during your second encounter with her.

Shauna

Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi (JP), Karen Strassman (EN)

Shauna is a gypsy and bandit who despises the poor and actually prefers to rob them of what little they have rather than target individuals with items worth stealing. She is a recurring boss fight due to her actions making the world worse for everyone and her own grudges against Revya's party.


Nash and Lerouche

Shauna's two sidekicks. Generic Pyre Mages.


Hawthorne

Hawthorne is Trish's father and a very wealthy man who is quite a bit older than he is. Shauna hates him and captures him to prove a point to Trish.


    Spoiler Characters 
WARNING: All of these characters are Walking Spoilers and their very existences and identities are considered major twists. Read at your own risk.

Dio of the Evil Eye

The true Dio of the Evil Eye and the younger brother of "Dio", whose real name is Odie. He is the scion of the prestigious Dio line, who began their service under Median the Conqueror centuries ago and now serve as advisors for the queen of Orviska. Under his guidance the empire has grown increasingly aggressive and he appears to despise Revya's group.

  • Always Someone Better: Layna is his (and his family's) someone better, and he hates her for it. Also, he's this to Odie.
  • Boom Stick
  • Climax Boss: The last boss fought before crossing over to the other world. The battle in which you directly fight him and one before it are two of the longest and most tactically involving in the game, forcing you to carefully work your way around cramped terrain and bring down hordes of enemy troops. Dio himself is one of the very few enemies in the normal path to travel with a full team of nine units. And just to drive the point home, Rock n Rock's plays during the battle.
  • The Dragon: To Gestahl.
  • Evil Chancellor: Subverted. He's totally loyal to the queen (and in the Demon Path actively risks his life to save her), but still an asshole.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Odie.
  • Evil Sorcerer
  • Guest Star Party Member: Forced to join the party in the Demon Path for a brief amount of time.
  • Heel-Face Turn: In the Demon Path, plays a Hero Antagonist role since he's initially to protect Orviska, and rescue the queen after Revya takes over. After Ghestal's death, he makes a full turn towards good and vows to work to better the world after Revya's defeat.
  • Not So Different: Is accused of being the same as Raksha in the normal path, to which he replies that Raksha doesn't actually want to rule anything, he just doesn't want anyone to give him orders.
  • Redemption Earns Life: In the Demon Path Good Ending.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: His response to Odie calling him immoral magic is that laws are for commoners and that those who makes laws are above them.
  • Shock and Awe
  • Squishy Wizard
  • Took a Level in Kindness: He's portrayed as a much more heroic character in the demon path. He even acknowledges Odie as a worthy bearer of the Dio lineage.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Median, even in death. So much so that the entire family spent over 200 years trying to revive and keep him alive.
    • Also to Diness, making repeated attempts to save her in the Demon Path.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He was a jerk, make no mistake, but he was doing what he thought was best for the world. Killing Layna is just to satiate his pride though.

Blazing Gestahl

Voiced by: Patrick Seitz (EN)

Gestahl is an undead swordsman with unmatched power and a known companion and protector of the Dio line. He is covered in bandages and spends much of his time in stasis.


Layna

Layna is the true daughter of Median the Conqueror. After Virtuous killed Median for ruining the cycle of reincarnation by slaying Vigilance, Layna tracked her down and was about to kill her before having a change of heart and becoming her host. Together, they are the ones who truly defeated Gig.


Drazil

Voiced by: Jamieson Price (EN)

Drazil is the second of the overseer gods and the lord of the alternate world that bears his name. He runs a very structured, peaceful and quiet world that lacks much in the way of identity.


  • Achilles' Heel: His Fusion Dance with Gamma and Joule is, like Raksha and Fienne, way too strong to fight outside of New Game+, but killing his squads of minions around the map lowers his level enough that he's actually weaker than Gestahl.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Is all about this. Not only does he combine with his Masters of Life and Death to form the final boss, but he draws power from his Drazillian minions as well.
  • Amazing Technicolor Battlefield
  • Big Bad: Of the Normal Path.
  • The Chessmaster: The top one in the storyline, rivaled only by Virtuous.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Shown in the Demon Path bad ending, he in fact does, though they border into Godzilla Threshold. The time he shows any standards are when there's the possibility of something destroying both his world and Haephnes's. That said, he admits to it being his fault.
  • The Evils of Free Will: He, as well as his Masters of Life and Death, were disgusted with how Haephnes' world turned out. Firm believers that free will leads only to suffering and that everyone would be better off without it, this was the reason for his World of Silence.
  • Heel-Face Turn: In the Demon Path bad ending.
  • Karma Houdini: In the Demon Path good ending, due to the game ending with Revya's defeat, he never suffers an punishment for his actions. Also in both Median Endings.
  • Knight Templar: Damn brutal one. As long as his plans work, he doesn't care how much people suffer for his atrocities in the process, and he doesn't object to eating souls either.
  • Lack of Empathy: He doesn't care what people suffer during Gig and the World Eaters' rampage since he feels they're happier living in his world anyways.
  • Large Ham: He is voiced by Jamieson Price in the Dub.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Revya's actions in the Demon Path leave Drazil struck with guilt and fully aware he's entirely at fault for what she's done.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Justified, unless somebody comes to challenge him on his world, not matter what happens on Haephness, as long his Masters of Life and Death can influence the flow of souls, he wins no matter what.
  • Smug Snake
  • The Unfettered: Beyond the deaths he caused on Haephness, there's also what he did to Resilience.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist
  • World of Silence: His world, where the people all look the same and have no sense of individuality. Dialogue with some of the random people reveals that even how long they live, which is implied to be short, is subject to Drazil's control.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: Can eat souls of anybody he has Dominion over to gain power. Does this to bunch of random followers to create two clones of himself.

Gama and Joules

Drazil's Masters of Life and Death, contrasting Virtuous and Vigilance respectively. They are arrogant, condescending, brutal and absolutely loyal to Drazil.


  • Co-Dragons: To Drazil
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: To Gestahl when he tries fighting them.
  • Evil Brit: Both of them.
  • Evil Is Petty: Gig complains that Drazil's world prevents anyone from every knowing "the divine beauty of the hotpod." The two of them apparently hate hotpods so much they actually respond that another reason their would is better is that it doesn't have those.
  • Faux Affably Evil: They try to come as polite, and likely see themselves as such, but underneath that they're even more condescending than Gig.
  • Mr. Exposition: Regarding Drazil's plan.
  • Satellite Character: The one scene they have presents them as this to each other, without them even having any major distinguishing personality traits.
  • Smug Snake
  • The Unfettered
  • The Unfought: Outside of the Fusion Dance with Drazil.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: Like Drazil, they can eat the souls of anybody they have Dominion over. They do this to Thuris, and try to to Fienne, but Gig and Revya Mercy Kill her before they get the chance.
