Descendants of Light
The princess of Kalxath.
Available only in the beginning segment and the Light path.

- Leeroy Jenkins: Her ostensible style in Langrisser Mobile. Her "Wild Princess" skill allows her to take an extra turn after finishing an enemy, and also powers her up if she separates herself from her comrades. She also starts with the "Lightning" ability that becomes instantly available to use again if it's used to finish off an enemy. Her defenses aren't anything special though, so depending on how her skills are used, she can easily cause more trouble for herself than for the enemy.
- Warrior Princess: A princess who rides into battle. She could even become the Princess class as one of her highest-ranking class from the Sage class.
The commander of the troops of Kalxath.

- Driven to Suicide: In the ending of the Light Path, Leon chooses to follow Bernhardt to certain doom after it is clear that their vision will not come to fruition.

- My Master, Right or Wrong: His loyalty towards Bernhardt never falters.
- Utopia Justifies the Means: He sides with the empire, despite being an honorable man who hates war, because he believes uniting the whole world under one banner is the quickest and most effective way to end the horrors of war forever.
The commander of the Ice Dragon Navy of the Rayguard Empire.
He is playable only in the Imperial path.
Jessica's former apprentice, now the great magician leader of the spiritualist troops of the Rayguard Empire. He seeks ultimate power, and that desire gnaws at his very soul.

- Secretly Dying: After his death towards the end of the Light Path, Jessica reveals that he was already dying from overuse of dark magic in his attempts to make sure Bozel would never rise to power again. As a result, he decided to put all he had into making sure Bernhardt would succeed in his goal.

- Would Hit a Girl: Attacks an innocent civilian (represented as a female sprite) out of boredom, against Liana's wishes and Leon's orders. Laird and Leon both call him out on it, and Leon threatens him with being removed of this mission (and implies he would kill Baldo if he harmed Liana as well).
