Voiced by: Shiori Mikami

A headstrong girl who forces her way into Adol's party. She is definitely not the disguised princess of Altago seeking to escape the confines of the castle so she can investigate what's going on.

Voiced by: Saki Yasuda

An excitable young hunter who lives in Shannoa Village. He is the grandson of Shannoa's elder, and frequently causes trouble with his juvenile ways.

  • Dishing Out Dirt: Elk skills are erath-based, although he has a Tornado Move.
  • Fragile Speedster: Has one of the lowest physical defense while being the fastest character available.
  • Glass Cannon: Some of his strongest skills allow him to dish out loads of damage, but he cannot take hits well. This makes your ability to parry or dodge critical with this character.
  • Green Thumb: His extra skill Geo Cluster causes plants to grow in the area.
  • Rolling Attack: His Terran Vortex skill has him rolling while leaving earth spikes as he goes along.
  • Video Game Stealing: His skills "Steal" and "Bandit" later on can be very useful in getting materials for you to work with.

Voiced by: Yukihiro Matsumura

    Cruxie 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ys7_cruxie.png
Voiced by: Ai Sasaki

Mustafa's kind-hearted younger sister. She suffers from an advanced case of Iskan Fever, which has left her bedridden and with little time to live. She eventually succumbs to her illness but is resurrected by the power of the Fire Dragon Orb. As her life is now tied to the orb, she joins Adol's party in place of Mustafa and inherits his skills.

  • Disney Death: Dies from Iskan Fever after the party meets with Angue-Barl, but is soon resurrected with the Flame Dragon Stone and joins the quest in behalf of her brother.
  • Drop the Hammer: Like her brother, Mustafa, Cruxie uses a big hammer as a weapon.
  • Glacier Waif: Despite her size, she's just as slow and strong as Mustafa.
  • Ill Girl: Thanks to her Iskan Fever, she's on the verge of death, though the Fire Dragon Orb allows her to become healthy as long as she's in its presence. Luckily, her Iskan Fever disappears after Rul-Ende is defeated.
  • Incurable Cough of Death: Suffers this because of the Iskan Fever.
  • Playing with Fire: Has the same skills as her brother.
  • Moveset Clone: She has the exact same hammer skills as her brother and joins because her life depends on the Fire Dragon Orb that the party is carrying.
  • Stone Wall: He has the highest defense of any character as a result of becoming Mustafa's replacement, but her strength is not quite as good as Dogi's strength.

    Tia 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ys7_tia.png
Voiced by: Yoko Komuro

A kind young woman who lives in the slums of Altago City with her adopted sister Maya. She makes a living as a wandering herbalist and healer. Her true identity is Tialuna Rem Iskalia, the last surviving Elder of the missing Iska Clan. Having fallen into despair at the corruption within Altago City and the hardships she endured, she used her ancestral knowledge to accelerate the coming of the Winds of Destruction so that Altago can be wiped clean of life and start anew.

  • Apocalypse Maiden: As Tialuna, the Maiden of Demise, she wishes to accelerate the coming of the Winds of Destruction to wipe out all life on Altago including the land itself to begin anew on a blank slate.
  • Artificial Stupidity: She always follows the lead character when she is in your party despite not being able to fight, which is very stupid when your lead character is a Close-Range Combatant.
  • Big Bad: The main antagonist of the game, who plans to destroy Altago.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Her hairpin is needed to gain access to the Moon Dragon.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Maya.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Has blue hair and eyes.
  • Disappears into Light: Her life is tied to Rul-Ende, causing her to fade away after its destruction.
  • Escort Mission: Stars in the only two of these in the game. Also may clue the player into her true ability given her bottomless healing ability and her ability to take hits from powerful monsters.
  • Evil Counterpart: She serves as one to Feena and Reah, who are also supernatural blue-haired girls who befriend Adol. Unlike the goddesses, who believe in their people despite their flaws, Tia lost hope in her land's situation and seeks to destroy and renew life on Altago.
  • Fair-Play Villain: She has to allow the Dragon Warrior to gain power from all the dragons before killing them. Justified because the stronger the warrior's hopes, the stronger their despair when they lose, which will validate her ritual.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Tia saved you and helped your party during the game (and even becoming a potenial love interest) but it was all a part of her disguise to ensure no one saw the warning signs of the Winds Of Destruction outside of the Slowly growing Titanos attacks.
    • Subverted. Tia reveals that Maya's illness is part of her motivation to cleanse Altago. In the end, her kindness wasn't an act at all.
  • Hope Crusher: She reveals the whole point of the Dragon Trials is to select a Dragon Warrior to act as a champion for life on Altago. The despair from the warrior's defeat then validates the destruction and rebirth of Altago.
  • Lunacy: as the eldress of Iska, the tribe that worships the Moon Dragon.
  • Magic Staff: Tialuna uses one.
  • Red Baron: The Maiden of Demise
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl
  • Stripperiffic: In her new costume as Big Bad as a part of Evil Costume Switch
  • Walking Spoiler: For one, she is the game's Big Bad.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She wants to wipe out all life on Altago so that it can restart with a clean slate.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Her clan was displaced and persecuted when Altago City was founded. While the majority of Iskan Village managed to hide within a spacial warp, the elder line was trapped outside in exile. As the clan worshipping the Dragon of Balance, her family was forced to watch the world become increasingly imbalanced by the rampant expansionism of Altago City and the selfishness of its people. Finally, the young mute girl she adopted as her sister caught a fatal disease caused by all of the aforementioned imbalance.

    Maya 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ys7_maya.png

A orphaned girl in Tia's care.

  • Break the Cutie: Maya's parents were killed during a war with the Romun Empire and she also lost her voice due to the trauma.
  • Cute Mute: She lost her voice due to traumatic events that happened before the events of the game.
  • Hair Decorations: A yellow ribbon.
  • Ill Girl: When she contracted the Iskan Fever.
  • Innocent Flower Girl: Maya goes around selling flowers for Tia to pay for whatever living expenses they can.

    Scias 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ys7_scias.png
Voiced by: Takehiko Sakaguma

A decorated Dragon Knight of Altago known as the "Altagian Falcon". A reasonable but firm man who sympathizes with Adol and tries to help where he can. He is actually a ruthless servant of Tialuna who uses the authority of the Dragon Knights to carry out her orders without arousing suspicion.

  • Casting a Shadow: His skills can be associated with darkness element.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Has greyish hair and eyes.
  • Death Equals Redemption: Downplayed. He apologizes to the party for killing the king and framing Adol, but still feels that their struggle is hopeless.
  • Disappears into Light
  • The Dragon: He's helping Tia wipe Altago clean and fights the party before they can fight her.
  • Faux Affably Evil: His reasonable behavior, his aids and sympathy towards Adol, and even his loyalty to the king were all a charade to carry out Tialuna's orders without arousing suspicion.
    • Subverted when he admits that he truly respected the king and that he truly sympathized with Adol.
  • Hope Crusher: His assassinating the king helped crush Tia's hopes, helping to push her over the Despair Event Horizon causing her to further proceed with her attempt to destroy Altago.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: The first fight against him ends up as this. If you wear his HP down enough, he'll become invincible and spam his best move until your party falls.
  • The Kingslayer: He eventually confesses to assassinating the king and framing Adol for the assassination.
  • Master Swordsman: He slaughters all the Dragon Knights without taking a single hit.
  • Rags to Riches: He lived in the slums with Tia, but eventually became an accomplished soldier.
  • Red Baron: The Altaginian Falcon (and The Knight of Despair, as Tialuna's dragon).
  • Villainous Friendship: He wanted to protect Tia from her duty and let her live happily with Maya, but Iskan Fever dashed those hopes.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He is the Dragon that is not revealed until late in the game.

    Raud 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ys7_raud.png

One of the Dragon Knights of Altago. Haughty and arrogant, he uses his position to lord over the commonfolk and get what he wants.

  • The Apocalypse Brings Out the Best in People: Once the island is covered in miasma, he ends up looking after Maya rather than antagonizing her.
  • The Bully: Raud is a jerk ass who uses his authority as a member of the Dragon Knights to abuse the citizens of Altago.
  • Break the Haughty: Undergoes a major one after the halfway point. First, Sigroon betrays him. Then, his men are constantly beaten and humiliated by Adol and his party. Finally, he can do nothing to stop Scias' massacre of Altago Palace which killed his father, Prime Minister Orbus.
  • Dual Wielding: He wields two swords when he and the Dragon Knights show up to arrest Adol.
  • Handsome Lech: He is handsome, but he is a pervert who tries to use his power to sexually harass Tia.
  • Jerk Ass: We first meet him attempting to force himself onto Tia, and he just gets worse from there.
  • Rich Bastard: He's the son of Prime Minister Orbus and constantly bashes Scias for his humbler origins.
  • Sexual Extortion: He tried to do this to Tia in exchange for the raw materials needed for medicine that she desperately needed to treat Maya with. He also did this by stating that Tia's home would be destroyed unless she accepted his advances, pushing Tia beyond the Despair Event Horizon.
  • The Unfought: He mentioned to be a skilled warrior in an optional cutscene, but you'll only ever fight his goons.
  • Unknown Rival: Raud view Scias as his rival, but Scias ignores him.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: His sexual harassment of Tia is one of the reasons that Tia decides to destroy Altago.

    Sigroon

Voiced by: Yumi Fujimoto

A member of the Dragon Knights whose main duty is to tend to princess Aisha's safety.

    Orbus 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ys7_orbus.png
The prime minister of Altago. He is Raud's father.

  • Asshole Victim: Prime Minister Orbus is one of these when he was murdered. He advocated the destruction of Old Town where Altago City's poor residents live to replace it with spaces for merchants.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: He only cares about the prosperity of Altago's merchants. He does not consider the poor people worth anything. He is the Big Bad until Tia replaces him as the Big Bad.
  • President Evil: A prime minister is elected, and he is evil. He therefore fits this trope.
  • The Social Darwinist: He feels that peoples' worth are decided solely by their wealth, and is willing to destroy the poor people's homes to create more space for shops.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: His decision to destroy Old Town, the slum area where the poor people including Tia live, in order to create space for more merchants to set up shop, is the final decision that caused Tia to abandon her home in Old Town and decide to destroy Altago.
