::'''Senel Coolidge'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Senel185_6582.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/KenichiSuzumura (JP), Scott Holst (EN)

A former Alliance Marine and adopted brother to Shirley. [[KnightTemplarBigBrother He is hell-bent on protecting her from anything and everything]]. At first he is only concerned with matters that directly affect either himself or Shirley, but slowly begins to open up as he becomes friends with the inhabitants of the ''Legacy''. He uses [[HeroesFightBarehanded his fists]] in battle, the first TalesSeries main character to not [[HeroesPreferSwords use swords]], and uses some traditional TalesSeries [[TheHero hero artes]] mixed with his own.

----

* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:He's really a former soldier of Vaclav's, but chose to stay in the village he was ordered to attack because he preferred the peaceful life. When Senel didn't complete his mission, the town was razed anyways. Senel never truly forgives himself for that.]]
* {{Badass}}: Managing to go toe-to-toe with one of the most powerful soldiers on earth and two {{Physical God}}s puts him firmly in this category.
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler: He was originally a soldier from Crusand sent to plan an attack on the Ferines settlement so Shirley could be captured and used as a weapon. He eventually assimilated into the Ferines village, to the point where he and Stella were talking about getting married. Then bad things happened.]]
** GoingNative: He went from being [[spoiler:a soldier of the mainland]] to a man living a peaceful life in a fishing village.
* BerserkButton: Anything having to do with Stella.
* BigBrotherInstinct: [[DeconReconSwitch Deconstructed then reconstructed through the main story]]. Played straight in the Character Quests where he's the "Responsible Elder Sibling" of the group, and usually the one to take charge whenever Will's not around.
* BystanderSyndrome: Early-on, if it doesn't involve himself or Shirley, he doesn't care. He gets heavily called out on this, and eventually gets better.
* CharacterDevelopment: His development is the most noticeable one. He goes from a cold and hot-blooded young boy who only thought of Stella, Shirley and himself to a level-headed young man who thinks of everyone and smiles more often.
* ChasteHero: Shirley and Chloe both have crushes on him, though [[spoiler: the only girl he was ever romantically interested in was Stella, who is dead.]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Stealthily downplayed]] at the beginning of Will's quest, which contains an oblique reference that maybe he's not so chaste after all.
* ChewingTheScenery: "STELLA, NOOOOOOOOOO!"
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler:He's the only one who doesn't lapse into a HeroicBSOD after Maurits's BreakingSpeech.]]
* [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice Queen]]: Starts the game as a rather prickly individual, and it becomes apparent that Senel has trust issues. He grows out of this by the end of the main story.
* FacialMarkings: In ''Radiant Mythology'', [[VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth Annie]] starts talking about his "scar" and how it must've hurt. Senel admits that it's a tattoo and he just got it because he thought it'd look cool. [[http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/4936/marinetrooper.jpg It's the symbol of the marine troopers.]]
* GoodOldFisticuffs: The first main character in a ''Tales'' game to only use his fists.
* HeavySleeper: A running gag in the Character Quests features each character trying to wake him up. Will, at one point, resorts to ''kicking him in the head'' (he was asleep on the floor) and that still didn't wake him up.
** Later on, he sleeps through an earthquake that knocks him off his bed and onto the floor... of the ''Main'' floor; his bed was in the ''Loft''.
** AnOddPlaceToSleep: He starts the Character Quests bunking in Will's house where his preferred sleeping spot was on the floor behind the sofa.
* HeroesFightBarehanded: As noted above, he is the first main character not to use a sword in the ''TalesSeries''.
* HeroicBSOD: Gets one of these after [[spoiler:the Calm Nerifes refused to grant him sacred eres, when it gave sacred eres to everyone else. He had to do some soul searching to realize just [[TheAtoner what he'd done]] to Shirley before he finally got it.]]
** This is inverted later, when [[spoiler:Maurits is giving a BreakingSpeech to the rest of the party during the final battle. Senel is the only one who does ''not'' go into this.]]
* HotBlooded: In battle, at least. He's pretty distant outside of it.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He starts out a JerkAss but he genuinely does care about Shirley's well-being. Eventually, he loses the "Jerk" part.
* IsThatCuteKidYours: At the start of Will's quest, when he, Shirley, and Harriet are trying to get everyone together to find the abandoned baby's parents. When he first sees Shirley with the baby, though, his reaction is more along the lines of [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Is That Cute Kid]] ''[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Ours?]]''.
* MistakenForCheating: Very briefly in the Character Quests, during the scene where Grune tries to wake him up, fails, and decides to take a nap in his bed instead (Senel is on the floor). Shirley is ''not pleased'' for all of half a minute until the situation clarifies itself.
* NotBloodSiblings: He and Shirley claim to be brother and sister, but they're not actually related.
* ObliviousToLove: Except STELLLLLA'S!
* OlympicSwimmer: He's an ''excellent'' swimmer, as would be expected of an Alliance Marine [[spoiler: though his skill in the water comes from his years living among the Ferines.]]
* PandaingToTheAudience: If you buy the mascot costume set for a NewGamePlus, Senel will fight in a panda suit.
* PlayingWithFire: His only elemental artes are Fire-based.
* PowerFist: [[spoiler:Interestingly, it is very similar to that of his [[EvilMentor mentor]], Vaclav.]]
* ShoutOut: If you thought [[Anime/FinalFantasyUnlimited Makenshi]] when you saw him, you might not be alone.
* UnreliableNarrator: He basically views Stella as a PuritySue, overlooking a good deal of her negative traits. To be fair, [[spoiler:he was madly in love with her.]]
* [[SayMyName Say Her Name]]: '''STELLLLLLLAAAA'''
* WhatTheHellHero; Chloe essentially yells this at him, coupled slightly with GetAholdOfYourselfMan after he [[spoiler:rejects Shirley just because Senel wants to stay loyal to Stella, even though she's dead.]] He got better.

::'''Shirley Fennes'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shirley185_8249.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/RyoHirohashi (JP), Creator/CarrieSavage (EN)

An innocent young girl who travels alongside Senel, her adopted brother. She suffers from a rare condition that leaves her severely weakened if she becomes submerged in sea water. Though she harbors romantic feelings for Senel, she does not say anything because he is in love with her sister, Stella Telmes.

[[spoiler:She is actually a Ferines, a {{Precursor}} race of highly-advanced, water-dwelling humanoids. Not only that, she is a candidate to become the Merines, the [[TheChosenOne Chosen One]] of the Ferines race who has the ability to control the ''Legacy'' and [[{{Technopath}} all of its Ferines-built technology at will]]. However, the true purpose of the Merines is to activate the Wings of Light, a [[WeaponOfMassDestruction cataclysmic superweapon]] aboard the ''Legacy'' that would flood the planet and allow the Ferines to prosper once more]].

----

* TheAntiChrist ''and'' The AntiAntiChrist: It's complicated. [[spoiler: She is the savior of the Ferines, who will flood the world and eradicate the humans. She didn't want to do this pre-series but a significant amount of tragedy convinced her otherwise, temporarily.]]
* ApocalypseMaiden: [[spoiler: The Merines' duty is to activate the Wings of Light, a cataclysmic superweapon that will flood the planet and kill all the humans so that the Ferines can prosper again.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Her reaction to Norma trying to sleep over at Senel's place is to [[DissonantSerenity smile sweetly]] and start charging her Eres.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: By the [[spoiler: spirit of the entire ''ocean''.]]
** MoreThanMindControl: She still posseses free will, which almost leads her to breaking free, [[spoiler: but Maurits [[ManipulativeBastard puts a stop to that and persuades her into giving in completely.]]]]
* BreakTheCutie: Stupid Vaclav... [[spoiler:Although it's Maurits and the Gadoria Knight Captain who push her over the edge.]]
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: When she finally joins and becomes playable, her spells that are shared with everyone else have a pink variant to their animations. [[spoiler: Her Orerines clothing, that she wears for most of the main quest and the entirety of the character quests, is mostly white. Her Merines dress, on the other hand, is black and dark blue.]]
* CrucifiedHeroShot: Briefly, when Maurits attacks the party after [[spoiler:failing to completely absorb Nerifes' power]].
* CrystalDragonJesus: To whatever religion the Orerines practice.
* DamselInDistress: Until she unlocks her Merines powers she spends the vast majority of the time being kidnapped.
* DamselOutOfDistress:
** On one occasion in the main story, she broke her bounds, punched out a soldier and then escaped on her own. The only reason she was recaptured is because she used herself as bait to help another oreines escaped.
** In Jay's Quest, where Jay has to kidnap her, and she ends up [[GetAholdOfYourselfMan verbally bitch-slapping him to his senses.]]
* DespairEventHorizon - When [[spoiler: Fenimore dies.]] And then [[spoiler: ''again'' when Maurits tricks her into believing Senel never cared for her.]]
* EvilCostumeSwitch: [[spoiler:Her costume as the Merines after the Rite of Accession is nearly pitch black.]]
* EvilSoundsDeep: [[spoiler:After she completes the Rite of Accession and awakens as the Merines, her voice is noticeably deeper and no longer squeaky.]]
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: To [[spoiler:Chloe and then Jay]] in the character quests.
* {{Honorifics}} - Once the Character Quests roll around, Shirley is the only member of the main party who still uses them. At the end of Chloe's quest, it's Chloe herself who convinces Shirley not to be so formal with everyone else (though she's still embarrassed when Shirley drops the suffixes completely). Norma has a similar scene with her near the end of Moses' quest.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy - Shirley loves Senel, but Senel loves her older sister Stella... Shirley puts up with it for a long time because she wants Senel to be happy, but eventually [[BrainwashedAndCrazy she]] [[{{Yandere}} loses it...]]
** Later in the character quests, [[spoiler:she's on the verge of stepping aside ''again''--for Chloe this time--despite being engaged to Senel. At least before she and Chloe air out their feelings and Chloe admits that she's never going to get anywhere with him and knows it.]]
** There's another scene in the character quests where this happens and is PlayedForLaughs - Shirley mistakenly believes Senel has slept with Grune and, while sad, resigns herself to this fact and tries not to burden Senel with her feelings on it. When it becomes clear that this whole thing is a misunderstanding, Shirley has a FreakOut in both frusturation and relief.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Though she specializes in magic, her equippable weapon is a pen. However, but the weapons she ''attacks'' with is throwing butterfly-shaped Teriques.
* IsThatCuteKidYours: In Will's quest; see Senel's profile for details.
* TheLoad : During the first act of the game because of her weak constitution and vulnerability to sea water [[spoiler: both of which are due to a curse from Nerifes because she deliberately failed her ascension.]]
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Senel and Stella tried to keep [[spoiler:Senel's past as a child soldier]] from her. When she learns the truth, she's ''much'' more upset about not being trusted and included than she is about what she's being told.
* LoveMartyr: [[spoiler:Senel rejecting her love is what pushes her to embrace the Rite of Accession, the true purpose of which she unfortunately doesn't remember until it's too late.]]
* MoreHeroThanThou: During the whole Waterways incident. Shirley was rescuing herself quite capably in all the confusion up until Fenimore and Walter caught the DistressBall; Shirley, not seeing herself as more important than them, lets herself get captured again in order to distract Vaclav from the two of them.
* NotBloodSiblings: Senel isn't really her brother.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: [[spoiler: After she awakens her Merines powers, she's capable of wiping out the planet in a gigantic flood if she wants to. At the cost of her life, but still. She can also cause lots of other lesser chaos and destruction with no risk to herself. ''Damn.'']]
* PluckyGirl: She will put up with ''a lot'' and keep on going.
* ThePollyanna: She often tries to be, but ultimately [[DespairEventHorizon she fails.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to her sister's red.
* RomanticRunnerUp: [[spoiler:She lost to Stella initially but [[AnchoredShip won in the end]].]]
* SilkHidingSteel: Especially in the Character Quests.
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler: Shirley steps in front of a Ferines woman who was about to be stabbed by the captain of the Gadorian Knights. Fenimore then steps in front of Shirley, TakingTheBullet for the one who was going to [[TakingTheBullet Take The Bullet]]]].
* WingedHumanoid: Ferines can produce a "teriques," that typically manifests as a pair of wings, either back-mounted or free and butterfly sized. After Shirely unlocks her Merines powers, her teriques becomes permanently active, as back-mounted wings.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler:It's hard not to feel bad for the poor girl. First, the man she's in love with rejects her advances for her sister, ''who is dead at the time'', and then watches her new friend die to trigger her into accepting the rite. Then she learns that same man she loves was likely the cause of the misery in her life starting in the first place, and that he never once entrusted her with that information. No wonder she goes so far off the deep end.]]
* {{Yandere}}: After [[BreakTheCutie all the breaking]], she caves in and becomes one toward Senel. To be specific, [[spoiler: her Merines powers are activated because of Fenimore's death, but she doesn't give in to Nerifes completely due to her love for Senel (despite his earlier rejection of her) until she gets hit in the face with the degree to which Senel and Stella kept her in the dark, reminding her of how badly Senel has always rejected her, so she gives into Nerfies' control out of both anger toward Senel and suicidal despair, feeling that he never loved her in any fashion and thus she has nothing to live for.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Her in-game mugshot does ''not'' look fifteen. Her battle model, now that's a different story.
-----

::'''Will Raynard'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Will185_2166.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/SusumuChiba (JP), Creator/CamClarke (EN)

The sheriff of Werites Beacon, although he would rather be a natural historian. He is very knowledgeable about the monsters inhabiting the Legacy, and has a tendency to give lectures on monsters whether people want to hear it or not. Although he is huge and wields a gigantic hammer, he is a [[SquishyWizard Crystal Eren]]. He has a daughter named Harriet.
----

* AdventurerArchaeologist: He's quite interested in old ruins and bones, but usually doesn't get much chance to travel.
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:To his daughter, after his ex-wife died, and he didn't even attend her funeral. Granted, he was a wanted criminal at the time she died, so he had good reason to not show up.]]
* CoolOldGuy: Well, Norma thinks he's old. Will keeps insisting that 28 isn't old.
* DropTheHammer: That apparently weighs 765 kilograms. How he's able to lift that so easily is anyone's guess.
* DullSurprise- He can be guilty of this sometimes. Perhaps CamClarke just didn't get enough sleep before recording his lines?
* MusclesAreMeaningless: He's a mage type character and very weak physically, despite what his apprentice would imply. He even uses a ''hammer''.
** Lampshaded in a skit - where someone mentions he could switch to Iron Eres.
* OlderThanTheyLook- He's actually 28.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: He's fairly icy when it comes to matters regarding saving Werites Beacon, but is otherwise fairly nice.
* TeamDad: It helps that he's the oldest and the smartest. He sort of falls into this role by default.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: As much as he insists 28 isn't old, he's still very mature for someone in their late twenties.

-----

::'''Chloe Valens'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Chloe185_3991.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/MasumiAsano (JP), Heather Halley (EN)

A knight from Gadoria who joins the party. She came to the Legacy to find a swordsman with with a snake tattoo on his arm [[spoiler: in order to kill him to avenge the death of her parents and regain the honor of the Valens family name]]. She fights using a sword, and plays a little more like the classic TalesSeries [[TheHero Hero]], even using many of their artes combined with some of her own.
----

* ActionGirl: One of the most {{Badass}} girls in the whole ''{{Tales Series}}''. It's interesting to note that she's the only female swordsman who's built like a traditional Tales hero.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited - She has a crush on Senel, which isn't returned. Realizing this helps her get over it.
* {{Badass}}: She takes down Senel in a [[DuelBoss one-on-one fight]] in her Character Quest. [[spoiler:Even leaves him for dead afterwards.]]
%%* BadassCape
* CannotSpitItOut: Her romantic feelings for Senel. [[spoiler:She finally does admit it to Shirley, but also realizes that Senel isn't looking for a romantic partner who fights by his side.]]
* {{Chickification}}: Despite falling in love and getting in touch with her feminine side, she does not become 'weak', either physically or emotionally. A rare example of this trope done well.
* DullSurprise: Just listen to half of the English VA's lines and try to deny she's guilty of this. Frustratingly enough, she also varies between this and LargeHam in combat, showing that the voice actress ''is'' capable of sounding HotBlooded like Japanese Chloe, and is likely just badly directed.
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler: For stabbing Senel when he stops her from committing ''murder''.]]
* HotBlooded: Mainly in the Japanese version, see DullSurprise above.
* ImportantHaircut: Before she started her quest for revenge, her hair was much longer. In the entire game proper, her hair is quite short.
* ImprobableUseOfAWeapon: A few of her artes involve her using her sword as a pole-vault while she kicks them.
* LadyOfWar: She's a full-fledged knight, and acts that way.
* LawfulStupid: She acts this way at first, but quickly learns better.
* NiceHat: It's hard to tell if it's meant to be a helmet or just a hat, but she never takes it off.
* RedemptionInTheRain: [[spoiler:The end of her character quest has her do this with Senel.]]
* RescueRomance: Starts falling for Senel after he saves her from drowning. Although she does later admit that [[spoiler: the real reason behind her feelings for him is that he reminds her of herself, and that such a kindred spirit helps ease the pain in her own life. Ultimately, she accepts that she can still hold on to these feelings even if Senel remains just her friend.]]
* RevengeBeforeReason: [[spoiler:At first. She's even willing to stab Senel through the stomach and leave him for dead to get revenge for her parents' murder.]]
* SensualSpandex: Whatever she's wearing, it's way too form-fitting to be proper armor.
* ShipSinking - [[spoiler: While it's technically sunk when she stabs Senel in order to pursue revenge, the deal is sealed after her character quest where she admits that her relationship with Senel will never be more than friendly but she still has feelings for him.]]
* ShockAndAwe: Her only elemental artes are Lightning-based. Oddly enough, she can add ''[[AnIcePerson freezing]]'' effects to them.
* ShoutOut: [[Anime/FinalFantasyUnlimited Is that you, Lisa?]] Or no wait... [[Anime/SamuraiChamploo Fuu?]]
* SuperDrowningSkills: She doesn't die instantly when touching water, but her swimming skills are nonexistent. This would be why [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes she's scared of water.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A.
* WhatTheHellHero: She pulls this on Senel a few times. The other characters return the favor after [[spoiler:she stabs Senel when he tries to stop her from taking revenge in her Character Quest]].

-----

::'''Norma Beatty'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Norma185_6834.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/KaoriMizuhashi (JP), Amy Gross (EN)

An eccentric archaeologist/treasure hunter who came to the Legacy to find the a mythical stone called Everlight that can supposedly grant any wish. She uses [[SquishyWizard Crystal Eres]], and knows more than anybody else about various locations around the Legacy. She wields a [[ImprobableWeaponUser straw, and attacks by blowing bubbles out of it]].
----

* ActionGirl: When you can fight enemies off by blowing bubbles at them, you deserve this title.
* ACupAngst: She's not that flat, but she does complain about being the least busty out of all the female party members, especially compared to Grune.
* AdventurerArchaeologist: Her quest for the Everlight means she had to learn a lot about ancient history and culture.
* ButtMonkey: Early on, less so once Moses shows up to take the role.
* TheChick - Most of her titles have the word "Chick" in them.
%%* CleavageWindow
* GeniusDitz: She's actually a very skilled archaeologist, and managed to [[spoiler:learn Relares, an ancient and complex language that's usually only known by the Ferines, entirely on her own.]]
* GenkiGirl: Her speech is full of non-sequitirs, she gives nicknames to literally everyone she meets, and she's incredibly pouty and childish.
* HairDecorations: As a memento of her mentor.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: It's not the fact that she uses a straw as a weapon, but she attacks by ''blowing bubbles'' out of it.
* JiveTurkey - Lampshaded. "Yo yo yo, moms, pops, what's shakin? ...No, they'd cry if they read that."
* TheMatchmaker - Norma gives Chloe advice on how to act on her crush on Senel, whether Chloe likes it or not, or even [[{{Troll}} whether the advice is even sound.]]
* TheNicknamer: Though she's the only one who ever uses them, she provides nicknames for everyone she meets, even her enemies.
* ThePollyanna: A very straight example, as she's the most upbeat in the whole group.
* ShipperOnDeck: Norma happily ships Senel with both Chloe and Shirley, and [[TheMatchmaker actively gives Chloe relationship advice]].

-----

::'''Moses Sandor'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Moses185_6107.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/KazuyaNakai (JP), Shiloh Strong (EN)

A bandit who kidnaps Shirley early in the game only to join the party later on. He has a large Galf, a wolf-like monster, named Giet that he keeps as a pet. He's very outgoing and friendly, and treats the other party members like siblings. He fights by throwing javelins at his opponents.
----

* ABoyAndHisX - His character quest is all about him and Giet.
* AccentAdaptation - In Japanese, Moses speaks with a Kyuushu regional dialect. In the English localization, he was given a southern accent. [[{{Woolseyism}} It worked.]]
* [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything The Bandits Who Don't Do Anything]]: The only thing his bandits really do is kidnap Shirley at the start of the game. After that, they hang around Werites Beacon and watch the town when the party isn't there.
* BladeOnAStick: His weapon of choice, though he throws them instead of using them for close combat.
* BottomlessMagazines: Never seems to run out of spears, no matter how many times he throws them. They always appear right back in his hand, too. Norma lampshades this in a skit where she mentions she'll catch the spear next time he throws it.
* ButtMonkey: Lampshaded with one of his titles, "Insult to Injury".
* DarkSkinnedRedhead: It's not known how he ended up so tan, but he has the darkest skin tone out of all of the party members.
* {{Expy}}: The character designer of Legendia is the same one who did the character design who did Samurai Champloo. In a way, he looks a lot like Mugen and could be the red-haired spear-wielding counterpart of him. [[Creator/KazuyaNakai Guess who they're both voiced by?]]
* EyeScream - As a child, [[spoiler:which is how he tamed Giet]].
* FluffyTamer - Giet, a Grand Galf (an extremely powerful monster), is his pet.
* HotBlooded: He rarely gets mad, but when he does, he gets very loud.
* IdiotHero: Unlike Norma, he doesn't have any special knowledge to back him up; he really is an idiot. This puts him at odds with Jay quite often.
* IllKillYou: After he believes his bandit comrades are dead, he has to be held back by the rest of the party to avoid [[RevengeBeforeReason a hopeless battle]] with the supposed killer. That doesn't stop him from screaming "Giet's gonna feast on your heart tonight!"
* LargeHam: Moreso than anyone else in the group.
* {{Leitmotif}} - "A Cheerful Bandit"
* LikesOlderWomen: He admits he likes Grune, specifically because she is mature and therefore, er, more developed.
* ManlyTears - At the end of his character quest.
* RummageSaleReject: Just what are those pant-like things with the zebra pattern? They look like they're about to fall off all the time!
* VictoryPose - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ydSIzwVgBQ "MOSES HAPPY DANCE! YEE-HAW!"]]
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Even in his backstory, we never get to see him with a shirt on.

-----

::'''Jay'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jay185_6781.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/RyokoShiraishi (JP), Creator/SteveStaley (EN)

A reclusive information broker. He is a young ninja who lives with the Oresoren, a tribe of anthropomorphic otters. He's a snide and snarky Iron Eren who fights using knives, combined with kicks and headbutts.
----

* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler:His adopted father trained him to be a ninja thanks to years of physical and emotional abuse.]]
* CannotSpitItOut: Chloe notes that Jay has trouble expressing his feelings. Additionally, even though he is told ''several'' times during his Character Quest to let the others know if something is bothering him, he keeps shrugging it off by saying "There really isn't anything", a variation of the typical {{Tales Series}} quote of "It's nothing". Not very believable after what the gamers just saw last dungeon. He is also often seen denying his worry or positive emotions for others, most notably Moses.
--> '''Jay''': He's so easy to read. He can't conceal his irritation at all.
-->'''Senel''': And that's why you can't help worrying about him, right?
-->'''Jay''': I'm not... worried...
* CrossDressingVoices - In Japanese only. In English, he was voiced by the clearly male Steve Staley.
* DeadpanSnarker: Even his introduction. He simply can't stand knowing that there are two people who are good at the same thing; he has to know which one is better. The best of his snark is saved for "that stupid bandit," Moses.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: It's the make-up.
* EasilyForgiven - In his character quest, though understandably so given that [[spoiler: his betrayal was due to Solon blackmailing him with the lives of his surrogate family.]]]
* HatesBeingTouched - All too obviously. Shown in both game scenes and victory poses, especially with Moses. [[spoiler: Becomes ''much'' sadder in hindsight when his past is revealed.]]
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Come on, he wears ''purple'', and his skin is pale white.
* TheNapoleon - Occasionally, mostly in his post-battle skits with Moses.
* ParentalAbandonment: ''[[spoiler:Twice!]]''
* ProfessionalKiller: [[spoiler:Was trained to be one. It gave him his ideas for battle strategy.]]
* RedBaron - "The Unseen"
* SitcomArchNemesis: With Moses.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: The "Sugar" side comes out extremely rarely, though it happens far more in the character quests.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler:Jay was ''meant'' to be a "destroyer" through his raising by Solon, but ended up a just-plain Woobie since the Oresorrens' raising of him quelled his murderous instincts.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Also younger than they ''sound'', too - in the English version? He does ''not'' sound sixteen.
** [[spoiler: This is actually a set of FridgeBrilliance - he was raised to be emotionless. While his Japanese version went for the CreepyChild route, the English version went for the "grown-up-fast" type.]]

-----

::'''Grune'''

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Grune185_9891.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/AyakoKawasumi (JP), ??? (EN)

A ditzy woman with amnesia. She's a Crystal Eren who fights using [[ImprobableWeaponUser urns.]] [[spoiler:She is actually a goddess who incarnated to stop Schwartz. However, the world was not old enough to support her power, so she lost her memories.]] She enjoys... everything, and is always calm and relaxed, even in the middle of a battle.
----

* ActionGirl: You'd never expect it at first glance, but once she joins the party, she blissfully slaughters all in her way. She even TakesALevelInBadass toward the end of the game [[spoiler: after recovering her memory.]]
* AnythingThatMoves: GagBoobs moments whenever she hugs another character, and she doesn't discriminate between genders.
* AmnesiacGod: [[spoiler:As part of her rebirth. She eventually gains her memories back.]]
* BlackMagicianGirl - The only playable crystal eren who learns no healing or support spells.
* ButNowIMustGo: [[spoiler:After defeating Schwartz, she releases the Summon Spirits to the world, and disappears, wishing the party farewell.]]
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Charge!"
* ChekhovsGunman - If you look, you first see her in a crowd in Werites Beacon within the first couple hours of gameplay.
* CloudCuckoolander - Anything that comes out of her mouth perfectly exemplifies this trope. [[spoiler:Once she regains her memory, however, the cuckoolander personality goes, and stays gone.]]
* CoolBigSis: To the rest of the party. [[spoiler:It helps she's ReallySevenHundredYearsOld.]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass - The biggest CloudCuckoolander in the series by far, would ''you'' expect her to be such a badass fighter with [[GameBreaker Game Breaking]] spells? And then, once she remembers who she is, [[spoiler: the CloudCuckoolander attitude vanishes completely]].
* EarlyBirdCameo - If you look closely during the first and second Bantam Bouncers scenes, she's in the crowd that gathers.
* GagBoobs: Which gets lampshaded by Norma, particularly because she's jealous.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: [[spoiler:The game treats the player to an elaborate cutscene of her gaining more power when she gets her memories back, but this causes no change in her, gameplay-wise. All it really does is change her voice. It is cleverly disguised if the player has been leveling up at the expected rate. LeakedExperience lets Grune learn her ultimate spell while she is missing from the party, making it look like she gained it from the power up cutscene, making this a bit of a Zig-zagged trope.]]
* GirlInABox: When you first officially meet her, she's taking a nap in an ''[[spoiler: open coffin. In the deepest spot in a tomb]]''.
* GodIsGood: [[spoiler:And helps you directly!]]
* HotGoddess: [[spoiler:As the men of the party are happy to point out, especially Moses.]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Her weapons of choice are pots. As in, ''flower pots''. You can even find one inside of Will's house that she uses as a weapon!
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:As part of her resurrection, she loses all of her memory. She regains it in the Character Quests.]]
* LoveYouAndEverybody: In one skit, Grune admits she loves Senel. Shirley and Chloe both have a minor FreakOut until Grune also says she loves Moses, Jay and Will too.
* MarshmallowHell- Both Senel and Moses have had Grune lovingly smother them in her bosom. [[AllMenArePerverts Lucky bastards]].
%%* MsFanservice
* OneHeadTaller: She's noticeably the tallest female party member.
%%* OneeSama
* PhysicalGod: [[spoiler:A goddess of light who battles a goddess of darkness, Schwartz.]]
* ShoutOut: [[Anime/FinalFantasyUnlimited Fabula?]] Is that you? [[spoiler: Actually maybe it is...]]
* StatuesqueStunner: She's 175 cm or 5'9". She's TALLER than Senel.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: [[RunningGag You may be noticing a trend with these characters]]. What sets Grune apart is that in the Main Quest, she's entirely "Sugar." [[spoiler:After she gets her memories back]], she switches over to "Ice," and never switches back.
* {{Stripperiffic}} - The description of her default armor, "Cocktail Dress," reads as follows: "A revealing dress that leaves little to the imagination."
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:After regaining her memories.]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler:This too, after she regains her memories.]] Whereas before, Grune is lighthearted and downright flirtatious with everyone, afterwards she's very blunt, direct and even spiteful at times. Her in-battle and after-battle quotes also change from being forgetful and flighty to insulting and mocking her enemies.
* YinYangBomb - Somewhat, as most of her spells are curse and sea elemental. [[spoiler: Makes sense, since she's a goddess.]]

[[folder:Other Characters]]

::'''Curtis and Isabella'''

[[quoteright:237:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bantambouncers_4684.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/TetsuInada and Rena Mizushiro (JP), Creator/GrantGeorge and Creator/WendeeLee (EN)

The law-enforcement duo of Werites Beacon, Curtis and Isabella call themselves the Bantam Bouncers. They almost always appear together, and do far more singing and showing off than actual fighting, even though they're actually both highly competent soldiers.

* BareYourMidriff - Isabella.
* BrickJoke: Early in the game, they sing twice about how fighting is not allowed in Werites Beacon. Much ''much'' later in the game...they show up and arrest someone else for attempting to arrest Chloe and Senel in Werites Beacon.
** Hilariously, Curtis does so by appearing and doing his usual singing gig without Isabella. [[spoiler:And then '''[[TalkToTheFist decks the confused man in the face]]''' mid-sentence, triggering a cartoony curbstomp.]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: The two look like something that came out of TheSeventies. Senel beats the living crap out of them (off-screen) and doesn't take them seriously. Then they lead an army against Vaclav's. Nobody was laughing at them ''then''.
* GoldfishPoopGang - Though you never actually fight them...at least you aren't ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2_SEh7eDao required]]'' to.
* {{Leitmotif}} - "Iron Hammer Time." The musical accompaniment seems to actually be in the scene.
* LetsGetDangerous - They're wacky pacifists who sing about how violence isn't allowed in the city. Then, when the war starts, they take up the reins and lead the citizens of the Legacy into battle against Vaclav's forces.
* NiceHat - Isabella is never seen without her stylized cowgirl hat.
** ...which she can ''[[ImprobableWeaponUser weaponize]]'' in battle with her "Boomerang Hat" arte.
* TheQuietOne - Isabella doesn't speak much aside from the occasional "Yes, Curtis." She does get a solo number introducing the arena, though.
* ThighHighBoots: Isabella.
* {{Stripperific}} - Isabella.
* WalkingShirtlessScene - Curtis's shirt shows off his chest.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Purple Hair]]

-----

::'''Harriet Campbell'''

Will's nine-year-old daughter. She resents him for abandoning her and her mother.

-->Voiced by: Creator/ChiwaSaito (JP), ??? (EN)

* BrattyHalfPint: She's not that bratty but she does act that way towards Will, her father. She gets better especially in Will's Character Quest.
* FlowerInHerHair: The flower that's attached to her hairband. [[spoiler: It's a crystallized flower that Will and Amelia found on the Legacy before Harriet was born. They named the flower after her.]]
* LethalChef: Strangely, the only NPC of a Tales game to be a terrible chef. She gets it from her mom. Props to Will for eating her cooking everyday.
* ParentalAbandonment: The reason she came to the Legacy to find Will was because of this. She gets better.

-----
::'''Quppo, Pippo and Poppo'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/MikakoTakahashi, Sara Nakayama, and Creator/WataruHatano (JP), ??? (EN)

These three otters are the foster family of Jay and part of the Oresorens, a tribe of talking bipedal otters.

* BadassAdorable: [[spoiler: In Jay's character quest, all of the Oresoren plus Quppo, Pippo and Poppo all went to the Wings of Light to rescue Jay and Shirley. They risked their lives for Jay by slapping Solon and his henchmen.]]
* CutenessProximity: Chloe gushes over them when they show up. As much as she tries to hide it.
* [[FooFu Otter Fu]]: Are apparently quite skilled combatants.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: LOOK AT THEM! THEY'RE SO FLUFFY!
* TeamPet: Other than Giet.
* VerbalTic: "Kyu" in the Japanese version. "Ors" in the English version.
-----

::'''Vaclav Bolud''''

[[quoteright:108:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/model15_9840.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/JurotaKosugi (JP), Creator/DaranNorris (EN)

The third prince of the Crusand Empire. He came to the Legacy seeking an ancient superweapon to use to wage war against the other nations and rule the world with an iron fist.

%%* ANaziByAnyOtherName
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: A prince who manages to be the toughest fighter in his kingdom.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: He's clearly not a nice man, but his machinations don't lead to much of the game's second act [[spoiler:except for getting Stella killed]].
* EvilMentor: To [[spoiler:Senel]].
* TheEvilPrince - [[CaptainObvious Well, duh]].
* LargeAndInCharge: He's at least two heads taller than any of the party members who get a chance to fight him.
* {{Leitmotif}} - "March"
* ObviouslyEvil: Complete with LargeHam tendencies and an EvilLaugh, wearing RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver armor also with SpikesOfVillainy, you'd know he's a bad guy just by looking at him.
* PowerFist: Like Senel, he fights with his bare hands. But Vaclav is noticeably more powerful, even knocking all of the party out with one move.

::'''Melanie'''

[[quoteright:104:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/model16_3457.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/YukoSato (JP), Creator/KariWahlgren (EN)

One of Vaclav's Terrors. She specializes in fire eres.

%%* TheBaroness
%%* DarkActionGirl:
* ObviouslyEvil - [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall "She's red! She has horns!"]]
* PlayingWithFire: Her specialty is fire eres.
* RedBaron - "The Crimson"
* SpikesOfVillainy - Her horned helmet, a source of one of Moses's golden lines. "Hey there, horny baby!"
* WhipItGood: Her weapon of choice. And she uses it to great effect in her boss battle.

-----

::'''Stingle'''

[[quoteright:104:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/model17_7197.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Mahito Oba (JP), ??? (EN)

One of Vaclav's Terrors. A masked swordsman. Chloe came to the Legacy to find and kill him. [[spoiler:His real name is Arnold Alcott. He is a doctor who joined Vaclav's army to use the medical knowledge from his Mengele-esque experiments to save his [[IllGirl sick daughter]].]]

* AntiVillain: His real intentions are [[spoiler:finding a cure for his sick daughter's illness. Vaclav paid him well, so he'll do what Vaclav wants.]]
* CoolMask: That obscures all of his face except for him mouth. [[spoiler:This lets him walk around without it in the Character Quests for some time before Chloe figures it out.]]
* CutLexLuthorACheck: [[spoiler:He could have helped his daughter without joining Vaclav's army or killing Chloe's parents for money. He needed Vaclav's ''knowledge'' as well, though, since he's an apothecary, not a doctor.]]
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler:Despite his noble end goal, he ''did'' murder Chloe's parents, and never even showed much remorse for it either due to his IDidWhatIHadToDo justifications.]]
* EnigmaticMinion: He doesn't really seem to care about anything when the party encounters him. Even Vaclav wonders out loud about Stingle's attitude.
* EvilSoundsDeep: [[spoiler: As Stingle.]]
* GoodAllAlong: [[spoiler:Compared to the rest of the Terrors, that is, demonstrated by PetTheDog moments such as halting Shirley's torture or sparing the lives of Moses' gang.]]
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler:How he justifies the murder of Chloe's parents.]]
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Not killing him out of vengeance was the right move, sure. His punishment is basically SwordOfDamocles situation; confined to the Legacy making medician for the rest of his life, with the party (Chloe in particular) and their allies acting as wardens. If he picks up the sword again, then they will kill him.]]
* KnightTemplarParent: [[spoiler:At first. He kinda goes off the deep end with all the people he kills.]]
* RedBaron - "The Vicious"
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:He was willing to die to make up for killing Chloe's parents after his daughter was cured. It doesn't happen though.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:He turned to a life of crime to care for his sick daughter.]]

-----

::'''Cashel'''

[[quoteright:104:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/model18_3227.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/YasuhiroTakato (JP), ??? (EN)

One of Vaclav's Terrors. He is a MasterOfIllusion.

* BloodKnight: He's quite fond of cutting people apart.
* FeetOfClay: [[spoiler:He's a pushover without his illusions. Once Jay figures him out, he's not much of a challenge.]]
* MasterOfIllusion: [[spoiler:Not really. Jay figures him out pretty easy.]]
* PsychoForHire: He doesn't really get much backstory beyond this. Just that he's crazy, and that he's working for Vaclav.
* RedBaron - "The Phantom"
* WorthyOpponent: When Senel attempts to take on Vaclav and all of the Terrors at the same time, Cashel compliments Senel on his guts.

-----

::'''Walter Delques'''

[[quoteright:95:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/model09_939.jpg]]

-->Voiced by: Creator/TakahiroSakurai (JP), ??? (EN)

A young man who kidnaps Shirley. [[spoiler:He is one of the Ferines and kidnapped Shirley to protect her from Vaclav, and so she could awaken as the Merines.]]

* BlondGuysAreEvil: [[spoiler:But don't tell him that. He thinks what he's doing is fully justified.]]
* CrazyJealousGuy: [[spoiler:His reason for helping Maurits commit genocide? He's jealous of Senel. [[IfICantHaveYou And he doesn't even care that Shirley will die if she causes the Cataclysm.]]]]
* TheDragon: [[spoiler:To Maurits. Walter's his muscle.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: Not that he was ever all that much of a face to begin with, being a snarky asshole on his best days. [[spoiler:But once Shirley is revealed to be the Merines, he drops all pretenses of being nice.]]
* FantasticRacism: The ''worst'' among all Ferines. He is so adamant to see the Orerines destroyed that when Maurits at least stayed civil with the team, Walter is still a huge {{Jerkass}} to them. His reasoning isn't exactly revealed, but implied toward the end that he wilfully ignores the blatant goodness of Senel and company (despite them saving his life) due to his jealousy of Senel.
* {{Foil}}: To Senel. Both of them have similar temperaments, similar fighting styles, and a similar devotion to Shirley while acting like {{Jerkass}}es to everyone else. The difference comes in their development, as Senel ends up broadening his horizons and improving as a person, whereas Walter stubbornly doubles down on his pre-existing beliefs and attitudes, becoming worse than before. [[spoiler: And while Senel's development climaxes in him accepting responsibility for his mistakes and trying to make things right again, Walter self-justifies himself to the bitter end.]]
* HeelFaceTurn - [[spoiler:[[FaceHeelTurn But not for long.]]]]
* HopelessBossFight: [[spoiler:Three of them! He finally goes down the fourth time you fight him, but he's no pushover.]]
* {{Leitmotif}} - Appropriately titled "Delques Black Wings."
* {{Jerkass}}: He trumps Senel on this department, and unlike Senel, he gets ''worse'' instead of better.
* MeaningfulName: His last name means black wings in [[{{Fictionary}} Relares]].
* NeverMyFault: His [[spoiler: dying words are blaming Senel for all that has happened to him; he honestly never once considered that maybe he brought a lot of his problems on himself.]]
* PetTheDog: He has one act of decency toward someone who isn't Shirley in the game, which is giving Fenimore a job to do in the war against Vaclav after seeing how desperately she wants to help out somehow. Later, he's also upset when [[spoiler: Maurits lets Fenimore die.]]
* TheRival: To Senel. Turns out he wants Shirley's attention as much as Senel does.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[spoiler: Evidently, he was intended to join the party. Never happened.]]
* YouCanBarelyStand: [[spoiler:His insistence on fighting the party despite being heavily wounded gets him killed.]]

-----

::'''Maurits Welnes'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/RyuzaburoOtomo (JP), Creator/KimStrauss (EN)

The leader of the Ferines.

* BlondGuysAreEvil. [[spoiler:This game really seems to love this trope]].
* ChewingTheScenery: At the end of the main story mode.
-->'''Maurits''': [[spoiler:Grant me your POWER! THE POWER TO TRANSCEND!!!]]
* CoolOldGuy: [[spoiler:At first. Turns into EvilOldFolks later.]]
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler:[[KarmaHoudini So easily it hurts]].]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:He helps take down Vaclav, but that's because he's a common enemy with the Orerines that was threatening their home and his plans.]]
* FantasticRacism: [[spoiler:Towards the people of the land. But, since they came to his planet, terraformed it, and started exhibiting FantasticRacism of their own, you can see where it comes from.]]
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:After becoming the FinalBoss of the main quest, he shows up in the Character Quests, spouts a few lines about being "really sorry" about what he was, and... that's all we get.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:He lets Fenimore die so Shirley will complete the Rite of Accession. He also leads Shirley to believe that it was Senel that cause the destruction of her hometown. Granted, Senel had something to do with it, but he couldn't have known it was coming, either.]]
* MeaningfulName - As a Ferines, his last name is by definition meaningful. It translates to "nature person." [[spoiler: And he wants to terraform the planet back to its original state.]]
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: [[spoiler:After being defeated, he absorbs Nerifes' power and fights the party again. After being defeated again, he draws so much power from Nerifes that he collapses. He later uses his body to channel Nerifes, a process which was supposed to destroy his mind. Yet this appears to have had no ill effects on him judging from his role in the character quests, and nothing is ever explained as to why he's still alive.]]
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: He uses his body to channel Nerifes.]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: [[spoiler: Even in the character quests, too.]]
* TreacherousAdvisor: He advises Shirley how to be a proper Merines, and even helps lead the charge against Vaclav. [[spoiler:This lasts until he turns on everyone.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:He loses it when Shirley quits being the Merines and draws Nerifes into his own body instead.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:He wants to revert the world to what it once was (an endless ocean) so his people can prosper, even if it means killing all the Orerienes.]]

-----

::'''Fenimore Xelnes'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/AmiKoshimizu (JP), Creator/PhileceSampler (EN)

A Ferines who befriends Shirley.

* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler:In Shirley's arms. She takes the bullet to make sure Shirley completes the Rite of Accession.]]
* FantasticRacism: She hates the Orerienes because she was tortured by Vaclav, though she seems to get over a lot of it after Senel and the rest of the party rescue her and help defeat Vaclav.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:See TakingTheBullet below.]]
* MeaningfulName: Her last name means blessing in [[{{Fictionary}} Relares]].
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler:The captain of the Gadorian Knights is about to stab Shirley for "conspiring with the Crusand Empire against Gadoria" for being used to power the Nerifes Cannon. Shirley is prepared to take the stab that was intended to kill a Ferines woman who was protecting her, but Fenimore jumped in front of Shirley at the last minute. Then [[MoralEventHorizon Maurits lets Fenimore die]], hoping that her death at the hands of Orerines will be the final push Shirley needs to complete the Rite of Accession. [[FromBadToWorse It is]].]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Toward Senel and the group for a while, claiming she's only helping them for Shirley's sake while blushing and generally showing signs of liking them more than she'd like to admit.

-----

::'''Thyra Welzes'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/AmiKoshimizu (JP), ??? (EN)

Fenimore's twin sister. [[spoiler:She arrives on the Legacy after Shirley fails to avenge Fenimore by killing all of the Orerines.]]

* BackupTwin: [[spoiler:Her role in the character quests.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: Fenimore mentions her early in the game.
* FantasticRacism: Against the Orerines. Unlike her sister, she doesn't really get over it.
* MeaningfulName: Her last name means hope in [[{{Fictionary}} Relares]].
* WhatTheHellHero: When she meets Shirely, she demands to know why the latter seeks peace after everything the Orienes did to their people, [[MoralMyopia ignoring of course what the Ferines did.]]

-----

::'''Stella Telmes'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/MieSonozaki (JP), Nicole Karrer (EN)

Shirley's older sister, and Senel's former girlfriend. Presumed dead after the attack that cost them their home, though she is eventually revealed to be alive (though comatose) on the Legacy, as one of Vaclav's captives. [[spoiler:Her consciousness is linked to the Legacy, and she rescues Senel a number of times over the game, though she endangers Shirley badly in the process. About a third of the way through the game, Stella sacrifices herself to stop the Nerifes Cannon, and dies despite Senel and Shirley's efforts to save her.]]

* AlwaysSaveTheGirl - Not exactly how you'd think. [[spoiler: She seems overall far more concerned about the well-being of her love interest (Senel) than her sister (Shirley), and on occasion came to Senel's aid while ignoring Shirley, who was in much greater peril and had the fate of the world resting on her safety.]]
* GoodAngelBadAngel: [[spoiler:She takes the form of Senel's fears and doubts towards the end of the main quest.]]
* GoodIsNotNice - She's a goodie, no doubt about that, but she sure is selective about her niceness. She treated Shirley like crap, for one.
* HeroicSacrifice - [[spoiler:Subverted. Despite her intentions, she just made things worse.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Even if she is a good person, when you look past Senel's [[UnreliableNarrator unreliable narration]], you'll probably find yourself thinking "[[{{JerkAss}} What a jerk]]!" from time to time.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Vaclav's power drain overtaxes her body to the point where saving the party takes what power she had left, and she dies of exhaustion.]]
* MeaningfulName - Like all the Ferines. "Telmes" means "guiding star", which is appropriate if redundant.
* PosthumousCharacter: Kinda... While she's not dead, 90% of her scenes are flashbacks.
* PlayingWithFire: Several Fernies possess the ability to manifest their Teriques as wings. Shirley's take on a fiery, phoenix-like appearance.
* PuritySue: Deconstructed in-universe. [[spoiler: Senel believes her to be a paragon of sweetness and light because he was in love with her and the NostalgiaFilter further affected his judgement. Outside of his unreliable narration, we see that she was a BigSisterBully to Shirley and cares more about her boyfriend than the rest of her race and everyone else on the Legacy.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Shirley. Her Teriques even implies that her strongest elemental focus was on Fire, whereas Shirley's is definitely Sea.
%%* StellarName
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: [[spoiler:Senel believes this, but no one else does.]]
* WeHardlyKnewYe: All but the last scene she's in are flashbacks.

-----

::'''Nerifes'''

-->Voiced by: ??? (JP), ??? (EN)

The incarnation of the ocean who is worshipped by the Ferines. [[spoiler:It seeks to flood the world, both to reverse the damage caused by the Orerines' terraforming and to avenge the fallen Ferines.]]

* BigBad: Of the main story.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[spoiler:Losing in combat calms its rage.]]
* DemonicPossession: Functionally, to the Merines.
* EvilCounterpart: to the Nerifes of the Quiet Lands.
* GodIsGood: The deity worshiped by the Ferines, who powers their eres and sends a ChosenOne to save them from the evil monsters. [[spoiler: Those monsters are ''humans'' and the Merines will use a tidal wave to exterminate them.]]
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: It cares only about the people of the sea. Anything else? Not a care at all.
* MakingASplash: Being a god of the sea, it naturally knows powerful water magic.
* MeaningfulName - Loosely, "the mind of the sea."

-----

::'''Solon'''

-->Voiced by: Creator/BinShimada (JP), ??? (EN)

A sadistic ninja master. He comes to the Legacy in the Character Quests with an evil purpose. Solon is also [[spoiler: Jay's surrogate father and teacher.]]

* Abusive Foster Parent: [[spoiler:To Jay. He adopted young Jay, but has nothing but contempt for him.]]
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler:He forces Jay into working for him again by talking about loud about his fantasies of slaughter the Oresoren.]]
* KickTheDog: He crossed the MoralEventHorizon long ago, and this is how he keeps going.
%%* PsychoForHire
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: Before he dies, he goes ballistic with rage at how Jay and his "family" could be strong enough to defeat him.]]

-----

::'''Schwartz'''

-->Voiced by: [[spoiler: Creator/AyakoKawasumi]] (JP), [[spoiler: Creator/LaraJillMiller]] (EN)

A mysterious woman who is related to the black mist that appears during the Character Quests. [[spoiler:She is one half the Goddess that created the world. She has decided that her creation is flawed and that the only way that people will ever be happy is if she destroys the universe and recreates it.]]

* [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil As Long As There Is Despair]]: She represents the despairs of humanity. When she dies, she says that the party has only temporarily stopped her.
* BigBad: Of the Character Quests.
* BladeOnAStick: What she wields in the final battle.
* CoolMask: To hide the fact that [[spoiler:she looks exactly like Grune]].
* DarkActionGirl: She's the god of darkness and the personification of despair.
* DramaticUnmask: [[spoiler:In the ending, it is revealed that she is Grune's EvilTwin, though even before then one can notice a resemblance.]]
* EvilMatriarch: Some of her lines while you fight her 'definitely'' indicate this!
* EvilTwin: To [[spoiler:Grune]].
* GodIsEvil: [[spoiler:She's not "God" per se, but rather all of Grune's negative emotions.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: Has one. You can listen to it in the bar in the inn's basement, but it's not on the OST, sadly.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Defied. She tries to transform by killing all of the Legacy's inhabitants and absorbing their despair, but the party's allies manage to stop her.]]
* PhysicalGod: To the point the party has to undergo lots of upgrades just to stand a chance against her.
* TrueFinalBoss: She's the last enemy faced in the entire game. She is also, by far, the most difficult to defeat.
