Playable characters from first generation


Sieghart is a young commander in service to the Armies of Light. He is very serious and focused, and has a reputation for being a very hard worker who tends to be stubborn and obstinate. Although sometimes hard to get along with, he is well respected by all of the men under his command. In spite of his youth, he is considered a gifted commander by his fellow officers and appears to have a bright future ahead of him.

  • Abusive Parents: Shockingly enough he's one to Leonis, who has a crippling inferiority complex due to the insurmountable achievements his father left before him and acts surprisingly coldly towards him once they finally reunite. He still cares about him, but his a huge dick by Agarest protagonist standards.
  • The Ace: He's a human in his mid-twenties who is an incredibly high-ranking member of a army made almost entirely of demi-gods, unites several warring races and gets three women to fall in love with him. Like Leonhardt, he leaves an impossibly massive legacy for Leonis to live up to.

A heroine of the first generation, Friedelinde is a lieutenant under the direct command of Sieghart and also his de facto second-in-command. Friedelinde, or Linda as her friends call her, has very strong feelings for Sieghart and tries to express them in her own unique way, but his inability to recognize even the most basic of emotions both frustrates and depresses her.

  • Action Girl: She is a soldier after all and she is the strongest (physically) female of the group.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Linda. It means beautiful/pretty in Portuguese language.
  • All Work vs. All Play: The all work to Eugene's all play.
  • Blade on a Stick: Her Weapon of Choice.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Linda loves Sieg even before the start of the game (although the story never explained when Linda fell in love with Sieg, but looks like it was a love at first sight case) but she always fails to say her feelings to her captain. She even asks to Eugene and Sayane for help her.
  • Composite Character: She's a mix of Elaine and Valeria personality-wise.
  • Crush Blush: Everytime she is talking with Sieghart.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: While she's always extremely loyal to Sieghart, she shows anger towards most of the rest of the group due to seeing them as unfit for battle due to being untrained. She comes around to them over time. Although she doesn't defrost at all towards Eugene.
  • Deuteragonist: In the first generation. She gets a lot of time screen with her attempts in confessing her love to Sieghart.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Sayane. But it's more an one sided rivalry created by Sayane which she doesn't take seriously. She even helps Linda to develop skills to confess her feelings for Sieg.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Once she meets back up with the group, she's devastated that Sieghart has attracted a harem. There's no way she can compete. The solution? Ask Eugene how to get Sieghart to notice her.
  • He Is Not My Boyfriend: The first time this comes up, you can either agree or just ignore the accusation.
  • Heroic BSoD: Had one moments after returning to the party because she sees Sieghart with a lot of girls and some of then are calling him with affectionate nicknames. This only worsened when Eugene says Sieg is popular with girls. She snaps out of it when Eugene in a rare moment of kindness offers help to her.
  • Hopeless Suitor: She puts herself in this position in some moments after the return to the party, since she believes the other girls have an advantage over her.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's cold, stern and task oriented, but has a caring soul underneath it all.
  • The Lancer: Alongside Eugene.
  • Official Couple: with Sieghart.
  • Put on a Bus / The Bus Came Back: She leaves the party in the beginning of the game and only returns in the second half of the generation. For her despair, there are a lot of girls near of Sieg.
  • Running Gag: During her attempts to put advice given to her to use, she eventually breaks down and just charges at Sieghart, or does so in response to one of your choices. This usually results in him dodging on reflex and sending her screaming over a cliff.
  • Senseless Sacrifice: There really wasn't much of a reason for the sacrifice. Aside from Ernesto being a manipulative evil bastard.
  • The Rival: To Sayane. See friendly rivalry above.
  • Tsundere: Type B. Oddly, it's Eugene that brings out her more aggressive behavior, not Sieghart.
    • Understandable since Eugene is a jerk to her in most of times. Although she become a slightly less tsun-tsun towards him when he starts to help her to confess her feelings for Sieghart.
    • Linda is total dere-dere towards Sieghart. Although in one event she started to hit him with her weapon while trying to confess her feelings.

A heroine of the first generation, Routier is a young girl traveling through the land with a young onerthes man who she considers her brother. Having been constantly on the move, she never had the chance to make any friends and, as a result, is almost pathologically shy. Whenever she finds herself in an unfamiliar situation, or in the company of strangers, her first reaction is to hide behind her brother. Routier inherited the power to see into the future from her mother, who was rumored to be a fortune teller of great skill.


Voiced by: Kumi Sakuma.

One of the heroines of the first generation, Sayane is a harpuia woman who very rarely gets angry and is always the eternal optimist with a smile of her face. However, she can be incredibly stubborn and obstinate. Although harpuia are known for their stellar sense of direction, that is one aspect of her heritage that she sadly did not inherit, as such advanced concepts of 'left' and 'right' genuinely confuse her. It was while she was lost that she first encountered Sieghart and his companions. Initially, she joined up with Sieghart and Company because it looked like they were having fun, but as Sieghart's personality grew on her she began to develop feelings for him.

Sayane was born in a human village located near the Scarred Mountains. As the village was the target of constant monster attacks, the villagers incorporated the surrounding natural features into a secure fort and organized to fight off the monstrous incursions on their own. As a result, martial arts training become mandatory for both men and women. In fact, a women's ability to fight was almost as important as their homemaking skills.

Sayane's hobby is writing a form of religious haiku that has its foundation in nature worship. Although she enjoys it very much, she isn't the most skilled writer, as her prose tends to be over-wrought and is almost always missing the seasonal and votive words that define the genre.


Voiced by: Kaoru Mizuhara.

Mimel is a mysterious young woman who was saved from being banished to the frigid hell of Findeste by the forces of light, who recognized Mimel's overwhelming magical powers and her ability to wield the Power of Liberation. In order to save Sieghart, she pushed her magical abilities to a dangerous extreme and almost died as a result. Unfortunately, while bringing him back from the brink of death, she mistakenly transferred her Power of Liberation to him, altering the course of history as well as their individual fates.

  • Buffy Speak: Is prone to these due to her attempts to make use of any word she learns. At worst this tends to border on being a Malaproper. Subverted in the second generation.


Voiced by: Saki Fujita.

A high elf who is accompanying Sieghart on his travels at the suggestion of her father, Eleazal, the commander in chief of the forces of light. She was originally forbidden to go to the far north of the continent due to the war, but declared to her father that "I want to do whatever I am able!" and joined the war effort on her own. After much consideration, her father had her work behind the front lines as a healer. For many of the injured soldiers, Alice's gentle smile was enough to make them forget about their grievous wounds. She knows Sieghart, but by reputation only, having traveled with forces on a previous campaign.

Alice was born later in Eleazel's lifetime, so she was coddled and wanted for nothing. However, as her father was frequently away from home due to his duties as commander, Alice summoned a creature with a strength of will and character equal to that of Eleazel to act as a kind of surrogate father.

She eventually became the guardian of Sieghart's son Leonis and raised him as if he was her own flesh and blood. Of course, this means that she raised him to be somewhat unnaturally grave and thoughtful, though this may have been intentional on her part in a desperate bid to countact the insanity of the adults that surround him.

  • Expy: to Ellis. Starting with the name and going from there we've got a pink haired Elf with a monstrous bodyguard that fights with staffs. She even has the same Extended Area and game breaking EX Skill that Ellis had.
  • The General's Daughter: She is Eleazal's daughter, the one who is in charge of Kraltarla.
  • Ms. Exposition: Toward the start of the second generation she'll explain each character's role in raising Leonis, to Leonis.
  • Our Elves Are Different: She is a High Elf, one of the five elven races and considered the most powerful.
  • Panty Shot: In an event of first generation, Alice get caught by tentacle plants. In an extra image of this event, she shows her white panties.
  • Pink Means Feminine: She is very feminine, has a pink hair and uses a dress with pink details.
  • Promotion to Parent: Acts as a surrogate mother to Leonis.
  • Team Mom: During the second generation she takes on this role in the group.

A beast summoned by Alice to act as a sort of part-time father figure when she was a child, Galios is what is known as a larva, who normally only exist as spiritual entities within the Boundary. However, by attenuating to the resonance projected by the magic of a high elf, a larva is able to cross over to the physical world and construct for itself a physical body that will fit the needs and thoughts of the elf that performed the summoning. While a larva such as Galios normally don't possess feelings, the intent behind Alice's summoning imbued him with the empathy normally only found in mortals.

Galios quietly and efficiently serves Alice as both protector and father-figure, and for the most part has little desire to interact with anyone else. However, he will on occasion train and spar against the soldiers around him. In addition, his air of command, combined with his incredible bravery, has earned the respect of all those who have fought by his side. The ferocity with which he wields his massive spears is legendary, as are the awkward situations that his bulky stature and imposing demeanor sometimes land him in.

    Eugene Lagrange
Voiced by: Masayuki Kato.

A lieutenant serving under Sieghart along with Friedelinde, Eugene is the sole scion of the Lagrange family and a cousin of Friedelinde. He was originally assigned the task of guiding Sieghart to Inicio and joined him when he and his company departed on their journey.

  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Acknowledged in universe by both Sieghart AND VASHTOR to have the potential to be just as accomplished as they are, but lacks the drive to do so. He proves them right time and time again.
  • Casanova Wannabe: He tries to hit many girls as possible but he fails miserably. He stops with it after his marriage.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: His scheming acts to see the girls naked (or almost) never work.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: Especially in the first generation. In the second, in a lesser extent only, but he taught naughty stuff to his son in order to follow his footsteps in the hot springs peeping.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to both Sieghart and Vashtor's blue.
  • Shipper on Deck: Wants Friedelinde to end up with Sieghart and is willing to legitimately help her out when asked.
    • Subverted sometimes when he uses Friedelinde's feelings for Sieg to prank her.
  • Sidetracked by the Analogy: Like with Leonhardt & Winfield, Eugene finds himself sidetracked when Sieghart talks about boiling eggs in a hot spring. He quickly catches himself doing this and gets back to the matter at hand.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With practically everyone who isn't Sieghat, most notably Linda, Vashtor, Cal-Vina and Alice.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gets called out by the party about his emotional abuse toward Niel more than a couple times. Especially treating Leonis as more of a son than his own.

    Tetora /Lemona Hoch

Voiced by: Yuki Matsuoka.

A cute and cheerful neocollum girl raised by the ryulent, Tetora is tasked with the unenviable job of cleansing the earth after being befouled by war. Although she appears to be a child, she shows a level of maturity that is far beyond her years as a result of her extensive travels. Except in the company of family, Tetora normally maintains a facade of playful cheerfulness at all times.

Voiced by: Yoshinori Fujita.

A young onerthes male who is traveling with Routier, a human orphan he has taken into his care. In order to keep a low profile and to avoid being targeted by onerthes hunters, he takes great pains to keep his third-eye concealed at all times. Although his race is known for their incredibly clairvoyant abilities, Cal-Vina's powers are almost non-existent. He left on his travels in order to gain life experience in hopes of expanding and training his clairvoyant powers.

  • The Cassandra:
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: See Improbable Weapon User
  • Improbable Weapon User: Breakers, generally circular blades on chains. Why anyone let a man who'll "Peel his hand when asked to peel an apple" use one of these is a mystery.
  • Lethal Joke Character: In the first game Breaker using chracters were almost unusable due to a poor combination of stats and skill slots, as well as the weapons themselves not usually having skill slots that would compliment their own stats nor the setup of the character they were statistically good for. Cal-Vina does not have this problem, or at least not as much, to the point where he comes with the Double Needle combo skill and later on gains access to several passive abilities that ramp up any and potentially all of his stats and his ultimate EX Skill will actually destroy your enemies' SP, making it harder for them to use their own.
  • Magic Is a Monster Magnet: Onerthes' third eyes, and the ability to see the future in general, tends to attract demons.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Compared to other Onerthes his ability to see the future is almost non-existant. However when he does see something it's typically incredibly accurate and important.


Playable characters from second generation

Voiced by: Yuki Kaji

A hero of the second generation, Leonis is proud of the accomplishments of his parents in the name of peace and enthusiastically followed in their footsteps. Because he was promoted to the position of commander at such a young age, he can't stop wondering if his promotion was due to his skills or if he was simply put in charge because of his father's past successes.

His philosophy of living life to its fullest comes from the influence of those around him as well as the loss of his parents at an early age. Leonis and well-behaved and mature beyond his years as a result of being raised with a certain amount of discipline. However, as he is so self-sufficient, this rather large pool of parental figures suffer from crushing boredom, as they would like nothing better than to coddle him into insensibility.

Leonis' ultimate goal in life is to bring about peace in the world, although he is unsure of what his role would be in a world without war.

  • Dual Wielding: Like Sieghart he dualwields a good number of his potential weapon types.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the Normal Ending. He and Mimel give their lives to contain the blast from Mila.
  • Identical Stranger: Blonde!Leonis is mentioned as being able to pass as Niel's twin.
  • Like Brother and Sister with Mimel. Or not. Your call.
  • Likes Older Women: All of his potential love interests are older than he is.
  • Metaphorgotten
    "If you are about to eat a meal, you might say a prayer or somesuch, yes? But you would not say you were sorry. Well, I think this is much the same. Instead of apologizing to your meal, would it not be better to thank it? Better from the eater's point of view, of course, not necessarily the meal's. So from now on, instead of apologizing... I think it better for you to begin giving thanks instead. Um...That is what I was getting at, at least. Things may have gotten a little...confusing."
  • Red String of Fate: Mentioned in the Normal Ending.
  • Together in Death: Does this in the Normal Ending with Mimel.
  • Uneven Hybrid: Will be 1/4 Harpuia if Sayane is his mother.
  • Wife Husbandry: Gender Flipped. As with Rex, almost all of his love interests had a hand in raising him.
  • Winged Humanoid: Averted if Sayane is his mother, as he does not inherit wings from her.

Wandering Lotus

Blacksmith's Daughter

Voiced by: Risa Hayamizu.

Daughter of Zelger, who joins the party as to help atone for her father's failure. Befitting her independant streak, her motto is "A woman's bravado must be equal to that of any man!" Dana's outgoing personality and automatic assumption of the older sister role makes her a good leader and the source of an endless stream of pep talks.


Voiced by: Jun Miruno.

Shernini is a syrium woman who is one of Apli's oldest friends. Being uninterested in violence, and unwilling to dwell amongst those who keep fighting, Shernini chose to live a quiet, solitary life deep within the forest. However, at the urging of Hass Calinou, she joins Leonis and his companions in hopes of ending the war. Shernini is most comfortable being amongst those of mixed descent as pure-bred high elves tend to make her uncomfortable. Unfortunately, her being syrium makes her an automatic enemy to some.


Voiced by: Yuko Sanpei.

Niel is a young boy who inherited his father's personality, but unfortunately got his mother's rather stunning and decidedly feminine looks at the same time. He considers Leonis to be his big brother and tries very hard to be just like him. As being slightly shorter than other boys of his age, Niel is obsessed with his height, or lack thereof.


     First generation NPCs

     Second generation NPCs 

Hass Calinou

  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sacrified himself keeping the Gurgs busy in order to help the party to flee to another continent.


  • Eat the Dog: Shernini offers to cook him on a few occasions. He is not amused. After being given the Goliath Serum he tries to eat her.
  • Refuge in Audacity: The only reason he, and by extension, the party survived their encounter with Giganda was because he attacked long enough for Niel to blind him and run. Giganda was not amused that he actually fell for it.


  • The Ghost: You never see her, but she's mentioned repeatedly. Oddly, her name doesn't come up until the post-game though.
  • Happily Married: To Eugene
  • Red Baron: Witch of the Sand and Steam-Wreathed Assassin
  • What Exactly Is Her Job: After hearing what she's been known as, Sieghart would really like to know.


     Forces Of Darkness 


  • Flash Step: He doesn't really move all that fast in game, but his moving animation displays this.


Universal Dark Knight Tropes

Dark Knight Vashtor

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Kusuda.

Dark Knight Giganda

Dark Knight Arzest


  • Big Bad Friend: He's was disguised as Ernesto
  • Deal with the Devil: Unwittingly, the Larva were subjected to this - being granted power in exchange for being warped into Dark Knights called Gurg.
  • Deceptive Disciple: Inferred, to Chaos. When Mimel brings up the fact Chaos wouldn't want what Summerill wants, this doesn't stop him from attempting to murder you all whatsoever. We see that this is true in later games. Truly a loathsome monster at every stage.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: His voice actor has a notably dark voice, which combines with his incredible Large Ham for a villain who obviously sounds like he's enjoying himself every step of every murder.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: One consistent factor in his design. It gets even creepier than normal when they all start staring.
  • False Reassurance: Across the games, he always does this. He always frames his death threats as offering to give you something. "I will give you the gift of eternal life" indeed.
  • Kick the Dog: Summerill does this so often that the trope could reasonably be called "Summerill's Usual Action".
  • Large Ham: Oh, boy. The VA was obviously having a ton of fun being a monstrous villain.
  • One-Winged Angel: He starts as a pale Larva, basically a humanoid Demi-God. Then he reveals his "true nature" and...holy shit what is he?
  • Our Gods Are Different: A Larva
  • Smug Snake: of the uniquely awful flavour that believes his worst Kick the Dog moments and malevolent actions are in fact tactical masterstrokes, bragging about how he turns Elves and High Elves into his sadistic Garvel.
  • Was Once a Man: Not him, his creations. He reveals the source of the Garvel to be Elves and High Elves.
  • 0% Approval Rating: There is a reason he needs to use brainwashed minions - nobody likes him. Getting your Gurg to threaten to destroy a whole town on your own side tends to do that.


    Gods of Darkness 





How well does it match the trope?
