Thomas

  • Abusive Parents: Due to being the product of a brief fling, Thomas is hated by his nobleman father, who responds to his attempts at reconnecting with coldness and sends him off to Budehuc Castle as a means of getting rid of him.
  • A Child Shall Lead Them: He is the lord of Budehuc Castle at only 15 years old.
  • Action Survivor: Becomes competent by trying to keep his castle afloat.
  • Adorkable: He's meek, cowardly, easily flustered, but both lovable and admirable nonetheless.
  • Big Fancy House: Castle actually but same diff.
  • Blue Blood
  • Cowardly Lion: He hates fighting and is quite weak and timid, but he'll always help out on the front lines when he has to.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He's a pretty worthless fighter, a total coward and incredibly passive and indecisive, but he also has the heart and soul of a leader and a surprising amount of potential as a warrior.
  • Determinator: The world seems dead set on crushing his spirit but he refuses to let it keep him down. The fact that he manages to make a run down castle he was only given to keep him away from his father into the base of a revolutionary army is all thanks to this.
  • Heroic Bastard
  • I Have No Son: His dad sent him to Budehuc so he could forget about him.
  • Martial Pacifist
  • Messianic Archetype
  • Nice Guy: Really nice. The castle inhabitants don't like him but he just stays polite.
    • They warm up to him over the span of his chapters, eventually becoming fiercely loyal to protecting Thomas.
  • Non-Action Guy: He's a moderately wealthy city boy with no combat experience thrown into the middle of an all out war. He begins at level 1 wielding a rusty old sword that he flails around randomly, gets winded after jogging for a bit and gets dizzy whenever he does his Combination Attack with Cecille, during which he contributes much less than her. His true contributions to the army are his kind heart and his unwavering spirit.
  • The Pollyanna: He has a Darkest Hour in his Gaiden but other than that he's always optimstic.
  • Reassigned to Antarctica: He was given lordship over a rundown castle on a worthless plod of land as a means of getting out of his father's life.
  • Something Completely Different: His characterization is a departure from the typical Tenkai Star. See Non-Action Guy and Supporting Protagonist for details. He's also the first Tenkai to not get a True Rune, and the only Tenkai to not even get a unique rune.
  • Supporting Protagonist: He is the Tenkai star, but he isn't The Hero or Big Good of the game.
  • The Unfavorite
  • Took a Level in Badass: From a cowardly boy forced into a run down castle as a way of keeping him out of his neglectful father's hair to one of the main contributors to the revolution. This is reflected in his weapon, which spends all of its first two forms as pretty much worthless before getting a huge surge in stats that continue to skyrocket in its final form.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Thomas is naive and rather sheltered, so he's unaware of many of the world's problems. As a result, he's perfectly willing to take in anyone, regardless of their background.

Landis

  • Blindfold Of Power: Well, it's a mix between an eyepatch and blindfold since you can still see one eye.
  • Evil Laugh: A very creepy "Yuh huh huh..."
  • Expy: Of Sid from the second game. Some fans wonder if they're the same person.
  • Luck-Based Mission: He randomly joins in battle if you wander a specific area with an open slot in your party. You can get him without meaning to in the very first battle, or you can spend over an hour running in circles without success.
  • Sinister Scythe: He wields a scythe and uses it accordingly.
