Descendants of Light

    Cherie 

Cherie

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/langrisser_cherie_concept.jpg
Voiced by: Chisa Yokoyama (original), Ari Ozawa (remake)
Class: Hawk Knight

The princess of Kalxath.

Available only in the beginning segment and the Light path.


  • Boobs-and-Butt Pose: Her concept art points to her turning while showing her butt.
  • Dragon Rider: As a Dragon Knight and Dragon Lord.
  • Giant Flyer: She would ride a giant hawk as a Hawk Knight and Hawk Lord. She would switch to a dragon as a Dragon Knight and Dragon Lord.
  • Heroic Lineage: Her ancestry includes Luna, baroness of the ancient Larcuss kingdom, and Narm & Lance, founders of the Kalxath kingdom.
  • 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.

Rayguard Empire

    Bernhardt 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ryo_nagi_bernhardt_remake.jpg
Voiced by: Shigezou Sasaoka (original), Motoi Koyanagi (remake)

The Kaiser of Rayguard, who began as a charismatic mercenary that attracted many skilled subordinates. He claims Alhazard under the urging of Bozel, who convinced him that the sword would aid in his dream of uniting El Sallia. However, the sword soon becomes a corrupting influence.


  • Better to Die than Be Killed: Takes this stance at the end of the Light Path.
  • Driven to Suicide: At the end of the Light Path, he opts to kill himself with Alhazard's power rather than submit to the party.
  • Might Makes Right: Believes the only way to put an end to pointless war is to unite the continent under one authoritative rule.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/langrisser_leon_concept.jpg
Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu (original), Shuuhei Iwase (remake)

The commander of the Blue Dragon Knights, and the youngest and most powerful of the four generals of the Rayguard Empire.


  • The Ace: Known as the finest knight on the continent and proves it.
  • 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.
  • Heroic Lineage: He's a descendant of Diehärte Klaus and Freya, making him a cousin of Elwin, which leads to them racing for the Langrisser they can both wield.
  • 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.

    Imelda 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/langrisser_imelda_concept.jpg
Voiced by: Hiromi Tsuru (original), Chiaki Takahashi (remake)

The commander of the Ice Dragon Navy of the Rayguard Empire.


  • Lady of Black Magic
  • Vain Sorceress: Is more or less directly stated to be one, which becomes part of the reason why she makes for a bad ruler in her ending on the Imperial Path.

    Vargas 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vargas_der_langrisser.jpg
Voiced by: Daisuke Gori (original), Ryuunosuke Watanuki (remake)
Class: Fighter
A general of Rayguard. His father, also a serviceman, died in a pitched battle, and his death has given Vargas something of an honor complex.

He is playable only in the Imperial path.


  • A Father to His Men: His men are highly loyal to him as a result.
  • Happily Married: Has a wife and a newborn daughter. In the Light Path, you find this out after the party kills Vargas and Leon has to relay the news to his now-widow.

Voiced by: Takeshi Aono (original), Kanehiro Yamamoto (remake)

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.


  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite his use of dark magic and antagonism towards the party in his early appearances, his intentions are actually quite good.
  • 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.

His appearance in Mobile
Voiced by: Tessho Genda (original), Satoshi Tsuruoka (remake)
Class: Gladiator
A mercenary. He is on a mission to find his vanished sister, Sonya.

He is available at the beginning segment of the game, but leaves after a fateful encounter with Sonya, presuming that their paths are more likely to meet again if he joins the Empire. He rejoins in the Imperial, Chaos, and Independent Paths.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/liard_mobile.jpg
His appearance in Mobile
Voiced by: Ryo Horikawa (original), Yoshitaka Yamaya (remake)

    Baldo 
Voiced by: Yasuhiko Kawazu (original), Ei Michizuki (remake)

A soldier under orders of Leon to capture Liana. He is unplayable and the first boss of the game.

  • 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).

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/langrisser_sonya_concept.jpg
Voiced by: Michie Tomizawa (original), Maya Yoshioka (remake)

The younger, half-demon sister of Rohga. She was persecuted as a child and developed an overpowering hatred of humans.


  • Et Tu, Brute?: In the Light path, she's ultimately betrayed by the demons she sided with, who despise that she's half-human.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Her father, unlike Rohga's, was a demon.
  • Tragic Bigot: Absolutely despises humanity, to the point that she willingly sides with Bozel. However, she can find redemption should Rohga connect with her on the Empire path, or if Elwin convinces her to fight for peace.
