Characters: Tales of Destiny 2

Kyle Dunamis

Voiced by: Jun Fukuyama

The son of Stahn and Rutee, who dreams of being a hero like his father. One day, he goes off on a quest with his friend Loni, that took an unexpected turn when a girl named Reala was born from a giant lens right in front of him. Since her first words were that she needed a hero, Kyle immediately volunteers, only to get shot down and arrested. After breaking out he catches up to and follows her around on a giant quest involving time travel, evil religions, and an Axe Crazy Psycho for Hire. It's going to be a long road to learning what it means to become a hero...


Voiced by: Ryōka Yuzuki

The mysterious girl that appears out of the giant lens in the Laguna Ruins. She can cause miracles using the lens pendant she wears, and is known as a "Holy Woman," same as Elraine. Reala is searching for a hero and this drives the plot for much game, but eventually she decides that her hero is Kyle.It turns out that Reala is an incarnation of the Goddess Fortuna, created in the future time period in order to lead humanity to "perfect happiness". Thus, to destroy Fortuna is to destroy her as well. But in the end, her bond with Kyle is so strong that she rematerialized with her memories intact at the end so that she could be with Kyle.

Loni Dunamis

Voiced by: Toshihiko Seki

An orphan who lives at the Dunamis Orphanage, and Kyle's best friend. He idolized Stahn and Rutee, and joined the Atamoni Group hoping that one day he could be someone the kids at the orphanage look up to. He and Kyle eventually set out together on a huge adventure to become heroes, and they get much more than they bargained for. Loni feels guilty for Stahn's death, as Stahn only died because Barbatos used him as a hostage, and made a vow to protect Kyle as a way to make amends with himself.


Voiced by: Hikaru Midorikawa

A masked swordsman with no past who broke Kyle and Loni out of jail, and then decided to join them. He's nihilistic, sarcastic, and the token serious guy of the group, which lands him with the title of "token old guy," even though he looks and sounds like a teenager. He's actually Leon Magnus, traitor to the heroes, brought Back from the Dead by Elraine. She brought him back to help her, but he refused, deciding to make his own destiny. However, this really only works with the original PSX version of Leon, who could feasably be brought back as The Atoner. Remake Leon died a hero, not a traitor, so him becoming Judas is much less likely.) Though in spoiler tags, his identity is never meant to be a secret from the player.

Nanaly Fletch

Voiced by: Tomoko Kawakami, Yumi Kakazu (Tales Of Versus and onward)

An archer from Calvalese who runs an orphanage in Hope Town 10 years in the future. She has a lot of resentment for the Corrupt Church because they refused to help her sick little brother unless he entered a life of servitude under them in return, and decides to join Kyle's group in the hope that if Elraine is destroyed, maybe the thousands of people who blindly follow her will have a better life. Nanaly functions as the team babysitter. Oh, and you really don't want to make her mad.

Harold Berselius

Voiced by: Akiko Hiramatsu

The creator of the Swordians, whom the party meets when they go several hundred years into the past. To everyone's surprise, not only is the genius scientist Harold Berselius a girl, she's also a bit crazy. She joins the party, and often threatens to use everyone else as test subjects for her experiments.

  • Batman Gambit: Usually played for laughs, but Harold is strangely perceptive and manipulative of others' emotions. She convinces Dymlos to save Atwight from Barbatos by tricking him into thinking it's a test for the new Swordians, and uses Judas's regret over her brother's death to witness one of his rare apologetic moments.
  • Black Magician Girl
  • Bolt of Divine Retribution: The original user of the Divine Saber spell. For bonus points, it's also the key to summoning Rem.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: The only time the perfectly composed Harold is seen breaking down is as her brother lies dying. She begins shouting "nii-san", even though she stopped addressing him like that when they grew up and usually calls him "aniki" which is more casual. It's even more poignant because Harold already knew it was written in history and couldn't be avoided, but she still can't suppress the flurry of emotions.
  • For Science!
  • Gender-Blender Name: She picked her name on purpose, because she wanted to surprise people when they found out that the genius scientist was actually a woman. If her journal is to believed, her real name is Jennifer Berselius.
  • Genius Ditz
  • Hot Scientist
  • Lethal Chef: Intentionally so. She can cook just fine for herself, but can't resist spicing the party's food with some new invention of hers in order to test its effects on the human body.
  • Mad Scientist: Especially apparent in the Radiant Mythology crossover games. She never really bothers to explain her actions with anything more than "For Science!"! In Destiny 2, she even asks for the party's data and permission to study their corpses should they die in the final battle.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: With the purple slit skirt, black lace, blue bustier over the teal top, and cuffs of either black fur or black feathers.
  • Rage Against the Heavens: Joins the party for the sake of this. Not because she has any real complaints, but purely because she wants to match her intelligence against a goddess. All things considered, she's Not So Different from Elraine.
  • The Red Mage: She sacrifices most low-tier and mid-tier spells for high-tier healing and offensive magic that's devastating due to her high intelligence stat. This is balanced by her low TP recovery rate and the high cost of her spells.
  • Rummage Sale Reject
  • Summon Magic: Her hi-ougis. She shares Efreet and Undine with Reala, but replaces Gnome and Sylph with Rem and Shadow.
  • Tomboyish Name
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Along with Fire and Water, she focuses on Light and Darkness and has the ability to summon the appropriate elemental spirits.

Barbatos Goetia

Voiced by: Norio Wakamoto

One of the three Big Bads of Tales of Destiny 2 and arguably the most popular of the three, Barbatos is an Ax-Crazy man who was erased from history for losing a fight with Dymlos (and many other acts of villainy). And he is BITTER about it. He partnered with Elraine because she promised to restore his place in history. He rampages around time, attacking people, killing Stahn, and hating gels and magic. He's easily the series' most popular villain, and has appeared as a Bonus Boss in both Tales of Vesperia and the PS2 remake of Tales of Destiny. He also gets a homage title in Tales of Hearts, which you get by completing an entire playthrough with, well, no items ever.
  • An Axe to Grind
  • Anti-Magic: He swiftly and brutally retaliates against the use of spells and items.
  • Ax-Crazy: Despite looking like a standard Brute, Barbatos does show a surprising degree of cunning and intellect, much more so than any craziness. However, when he fights...
  • Berserk Button: If you use an item in battle with him, Barbatos will go berserk, and use a special Hi-Ougi meant to punish you hard for it. "NO! ITEMS! EVEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRR!!!". In his debut game, he doesn't have that Hi-Ougi, but he will remark that you're a foolish coward to use items, goes invincible and casts an accurate spell to you. Bottom line, don't use items in front of Barbatos.
  • Better to Die Than Be Killed: Rather than accept that he was defeated by Kyle and his party, he throws himself into the Eye of God, claiming that he lost only to his own strength.
  • Bonus Boss: Outside of Tales of Destiny 2.
  • Dirty Coward: He betrayed Earth for the Aetherians in the past, and took a kid hostage to disarm Stahn before butchering him in the present.
  • The Dragon
  • Easy-Mode Mockery: So, did you set your difficulty to 'Easiest' if you face him in Tales of Destiny remake? Congratulations. HE KILLS YOU AND YOUR PARTY IN ONE HIT.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Barbatos goes all the way to add a dramatic adjective in every spells he cast. "Shakunetsu no BURN STRIKE!!!", "Zetsubou no CEILING FALL!!!", etc.
  • Evil Laugh
  • Foe-Tossing Charge: You use your item, and he tramples through your allies, and then... NO.ITEMS.EVEEEERRRRRR!!!!!
  • Hero Killer: He's called Killer of Heroes when he's a Bonus Boss in Tales of Vesperia
  • Meaningful Name: He was summoned to do Elraine's bidding, and his name references the Ars Goetia.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: NO. ITEMS. EVEEEERRRRRR!!!!!
  • The Resenter: It's implied the reason why he betrayed the Erthers for the Aetherians was because he was jealous of Dymlos for his heroism and for having the affections of Atwight.
  • Scary Black Man: Considering his feats, you have every right to be scared of this guy.
    • Invoked even further in the TOD remake where he is considerably more dark-skinned than in the sequel. Depending on the Artist, perhaps?
  • The Starscream: Becomes this for the other antagonist Elraine during his last moments in the Drama CD.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Even when you're a super scary villain and kinda black skinned.


Voiced by: Yoshiko Sakakibara

The second Big Bad of the game. She is a holy priestess known to create various miracles and accept Lens donations, rising to prominence later after the events of Tales of Destiny. Unfortunately, she an ulterior motive: to summon Fortuna as it was ordealed by her, and eventually replace her. For that, she'll need the previous heroes to be killed off. She hired Barbatos to do the job, and attempts to do the same on Leon Magnus, but failed and he ended up becoming Judas, but did not expect Stahn's son Kyle, and Fortuna's other creation Reala to bar her path so adamantly. She is eventually defeated.


The final boss of the game. After Elraine's defeat final she appears and talks with Reala, who declares that gods like them are not needed to help humans anymore. This causes Fortuna to snap and declare that if the humans don't need her, she would eradicate them and their history and build a new world. On Fortuna's defeat, time was fixed and events of her interference (Elraine and Barbatos' appearances, Leon's revival as Judas) never happened, and thus history is restored.
