The characters of Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis.

    Recruitable characters 

Alphonse Loeher

Class: Soldier
Birthday: Tierra 22 (default)
Element: Varies
Alignment: Varies

Protagonist of Knight of Lodis. A young knight from the Felis region of Lodis, assigned to the Order of the Sacred Flame. He leaves Lodis with his friend and commander, Rictor Lasanti, for the island of Ovis.

Tropes associated with Alphonse:
  • Break the Cutie: the whole game is this for him.
  • Distressed Dude: Is captured by Nichart early on and chained to wall to interrogate.
  • Freudian Excuse: The ENTIRE GAME is about it
  • Kid Hero: Only fifteen.
  • The Lancer: To Rictor, initially.
  • Start of Darkness — In the end, his name is changed to Lanselot Tartaros. Fittingly, it also makes him Not So Different from Shaher as both were deeply hurt for what they believed was being forsaken by God and have caused misery to others because of their losses.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His battle sprite has blue hair. Despite this, his portrait has black hair. The distinctive shade also hints that he is in fact a young Lanselot Tartaros.

Eleanor Olato

Class: Soldier
Birthday: Sombra 7
Element: Water
Alignment: Neutral

A young, orphaned girl living at a church on Solea beach. She finds Alphonse washed up on the shore and saves his life. Alphonse later returns to her to gain information on mermaids. He would later save her life from northern troops, who likewise had come for information on the mermaids. She accompanies him from then on, and the two become lovers.

Tropes associated with Eleanor:
  • Blessed with Suck: Her pearl necklace, which has the power to protect her. Unfortunately, it's rather overzealous about it and it's power kills a bully, which ends with her being driven out of her hometown. She ends up at the Solea church.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Appears to be completely unimportant, until a one-off line of her's about a mermaid becomes the main plot point.
  • Doomed by Canon.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Does this in the canon A Path for Alphonse. To his horror.
  • Kid Hero: Her age isn't stated, but she's clearly younger than Alphonse.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Views Alphonse as this.
  • The Lost Lenore: To Alphonse, her death being why he turned into the ruthless and manipulative Lanselot Tartaros
  • Magikarp Power: Star Tiara.
  • Nice Girl: Despite all the misery and death Shaher's actions have caused, she can't bring herself to hate him but ultimately pities and even FORGIVES him, saying she understands how lonely and hurt he was at believing God turned his back on him. It makes her death all the more of an emotional sucker punch.
  • Orphan's Plot Trinket: Her pearl necklace.
  • Rescue Romance: Interesting case. She initially saves Alphonse after finding him washed up on a beach. He later saves her from being kidnapped.

Orson Lamies

Class: Archer

The self-proclaimed strongest mermaid on Ovis. Harbors a grudge against humans for events in the past history of Ovis.

Tropes associated with Aerial:
  • Blade on a Stick
  • Defeat Means Friendship
  • Fantastic Racism: Towards humans, initially.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different
  • Poor Communication Kills: Under the impression that Alphonse injured another mermaid named Minerva, she attacks you. She never gives Alphonse the chance to explain himself, as he had actually saved said mermaid from an attack by Rictor's forces. Due to this, up to seven of her comrades end up dead.
    • However; this is different in the "B" path where the previous map has Minerva as the boss and can either be killed or reduced to a low health level and escape. So maybe she has a point for assuming you're dangerous. (Granted, Minerva was the one who attacked you, but she's not telling that.)


Class: Summoner
