The Warriors of Light

    Sol 
The leader of the Warriors of Light, Sol is an apprentice swordsman in the independent Kingdom of Lux. He's an eternal optimist, if a bit of a ditz.

  • Bishōnen: If the official art says anything, Sol is surprisingly handsome.
  • Genki Boy: Absolutely nothing can put a dent in this boy's optimistic energy.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: His starting equipment includes a sword. He also appears with one in promotional art, including the title image.
  • Idiot Hero: Sol is a little slow on the uptake.
  • Love Triangle: Involved in one with Glaive and Diana. Diana is in love with him, but he has no clue whatsoever.
  • Meaningful Name: It means "sun".
  • Mythology Gag / Expy: To Bartz. They are both Idiot Heroes who happen to look similar and even dress somewhat similar except Sol wears read and Bartz wears blue as Freelancers.
  • Parental Abandonment
    • Disappeared Dad: His father died when he was a child.
    • Missing Mom: And his mother is swallowed by The Void after the first Dimensional Shift. She gets better in the end.
  • Right Handed Mirror: To Nacht. Both are orphans chosen by the Crystal and both choose to be heroes, but Sol is the leader of the Warriors of Light and nearly Nacht's total opposite in personality and appearance.
  • Say My Name: Has tendency to call Vata's name in every single of their encounters.
  • Totally Radical: Sol uses modern slang awkwardly, such as commenting on "one epic airship."

    Aigis 
The hero of the Kingdom of Lux, and Diana's older brother. Glaive and Sol are his apprentices. He expects to be recruited by the Imperial forces for his skills.

    Sarah aka Princess Sarah of Burtgang 
A mysterious girl captured by the Empire and forced to work for them. She appears to have some sort of unknown power.

    Dusk 
A young man from Harmonia who was "recruited" by the Empire to do their dirty work. He is Alba's twin brother.

  • Bishōnen: You remember what franchise this is, right?

The Warriors of Darkness

    Nacht 
A deadly serious young man who is forced to do dirty jobs for the Empire. He was orphaned in the wars of conquest before the game begins.

  • Dramatic Ellipsis: Every other thing he says...
  • Fantastically Indifferent: Whenever others are panicked, he just stands there and reacts calmly.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords
  • Left-Handed Mirror: To Sol. Both are orphans chosen by the Crystal and both choose to be heroic, but Nacht is Sol's opposite in nearly all other ways, from hair color to personality.
  • Meaningful Name: His name means "night".
  • No Sense of Humor: Much to Alba's dismay.
  • Parental Abandonment: His mother is never mentioned and presumeably dead. His father died during the empire's assault of Falgabard.
  • Sole Survivor: ...Or is he?
  • The Stoic: Nacht is described in his introduction as emotionless. He doesn't react too much. Doesn't talk much, either. Even when faced with dirty magazines, he does little more than blink at them.
    • Not So Stoic: The most he ever seems to emote is when the subject of his homeland, Falgabard is at hand. And even then, it's mostly expressed with a slightly different sort of silence.
  • The Southpaw: If he doesn't equip Dual Wield ability, his weapons will go to the left hand slot in equipment screen.

    Alba 
A brash and snarky young woman from Harmonia. She, along with her twin, Dusk, have been "recruited" by the Empire to do dirty work for them.

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: She is disappointed when she finds out that Nacht didn't do anything to her while she was unconscious, and she wants to read dirty magazines together with Nacht. And while Glaive is not that bad, Alba shows interest in him too.
  • Black Magician Girl: At least until jobs open up. She's brash and a bit of a tomboy, and comes with the black magic innately. After you unlock jobs, however, her skillset is up to you.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Alba is quite snarky.
    Alba: (to Nacht, The Quiet One) What is it, boy? Did Timmy fall down the well?

    Diana 
Diana is a young woman from Lux. She is Sol and Glaive's childhood friend, and Aigis' younger sister.

    Glaive 
A ponytailed young man from Lux. He is Aigis' apprentice, Sol's rival, and Diana's friend.

  • Always Save the Girl: Decides to save Diana on his own when she is kidnapped by the Empire, while Alba and Nacht disagree. Luckily, The Mask helps him in a pinch.
  • Anime Hair: How the heck does he get his ponytail to stick out like that? Mousse?
  • Cannot Spit It Out: He just can't tell Diana he loves her.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: To Diana and Alba.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Love Triangle: Glaive is in love with Diana, but she only has eyes for Sol.
  • Meaningful Name: A "glaive" is a type of polearm. Glaive is best suited for melee classes. Sadly, there's no way to take it to the extreme by making him a Dragoon, since he's a Warrior of Darkness.
  • The Rival: To Sol.

Allies of Light

    Elgo 
A self-proclaimed wandering prophet. He's looking for the rising of the Warriors of Light, so he can help and protect them.

For tropes applying to him post-Reveal as the Emperor, see Elgo's entry under Spoiler Characters.

    Barbara 
A dragoon who has been raised by dragons and moogles. She is fiercely protective of her "family".

    Eduardo 
A world-famous bard from the port town of Rusalka. He has fallen in love with a mermaid.

    Argy 
A gynoid created by Dr. Lugae. Although created to be a machine, Lugae viewed her as a daughter and gave her emotions.

  • Disney Death: Given that she's a machine, it should be expected that death wouldn't be permanent.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Despite being a machine she's still vulnerable to status effects like Sleep and Poison.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Thanks to her memory loss, she becomes an ally of the party and comes to view Sol and Sarah as surrogate parents.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]: As she has no memory of her real name, Sol and Sarah decide to give her a new one for the time being. There actually is no default name. The Warriors refer to her as that name for the rest of the game, while Dr. Lugae continues to use the name "Argy".
  • Jack-of-All-Trades: As a Memorist, she can replace all her battle commands with a random selection chosen from those she already knows. She can also equip all weapons and all armor.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Burns herself out protecting Sol and Sarah.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: A more justified case than usual, as she is a machine and it's possible her memory does work that way.
  • Spaceship Girl: Becomes the core of Lugae's airship after her "death". She was meant to be the core of the Heliogabalus, the Empire's most powerful airship.

    Gawain 
A paladin and the former captain of the guard for the Kingdom of Burtgang. Is currently drinking away the memory of failing to protect the Kingdom and its royal family.

    Sophia 
The leader of the magic city Mysidia.

Allies of Darkness

    Gramps aka King Feyr of the Elves 
An old blind man living near the Mazewood. Despite his blindness, he is a master archer. And a pervert.

  • Blind Weaponmaster: He is a crack shot with his bow despite being completely blind.
  • Dirty Old Man: He takes an opportunity to fondle Alba and imagines she's wearing a yellow polka dot bikini.
  • Handicapped Badass: He's blind, but still a powerful and useful party member.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]: Unlike most of the guests. When he joins the party, he doesn't remember his own name, so the party (and thus the player) comes up with a temporary name to refer to him by. "Gramps" is the default.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He jumps in front of Asmodai's magic blast to save his wife and son, and then uses a suicide attack to take down his barrier so the Dark Warriors can finish him.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: His Aim ability can target the victim's mouth (silence), heart (confuse), or legs (stun).
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Gramps can't remember anything, including his own name. Rather than senility, it's because his memories were erased as part of his deal to protect his wife and child.
  • Not Too Dead to Save the Day: His spirit shows up to weaken The Nil during the final battle.

    Graham 
A Dark Knight and the sole survivor of the massacre at Falgabard.

  • Animated Armor
  • Badass Cape
  • Black Knight: How he's introduced to the party.
  • Cast from Hit Points: Darkness and Onyx Wave consume one third of his max HP to use. Last Resort is sort of a roundabout form of this: it massively improves his stats, at the cost of killing at the count of 10.
  • Dub Name Change: His name in Japanese version is "Gram".
  • Empathic Weapon: He is one. The suit of armor being an empty shell controlled by the sword. Even after losing command of the armor, the sword can still speak, remains with Nacht, and acts as a fifth member of the party, albeit no longer controllable as a party member.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Kind of. He loses control of Sigurd's armor as a result of the massive amount of damage he takes on protecting the party from Baugauven. The sword he's possessing still exists, however.
  • Heroic Upgrade: A weapon example. Graham's Sword turns into Graham's Will after the party visits Sigurd's grave inside World of Nil.
  • Guest-Star Party Member
    • Unlike some of the others, he does find a way to remain in the party. As a weapon in your inventory, that is.
  • The Lancer: Shares this role with Alba once he joined the Dark Warriors.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Sort of. He's controlled by Graham's mind inside a dark sword, but possessing Nacht's father's armor which he refers to as if it were Sigurd. Which it may be in some way.

    Matoya 
An exotic dancer in the desert city of Gardenia. She is the fourth of that name. She is also the leader of Desert Moon.

    Jinnai 
A one-armed ninja and member of the Koga Clan. He was involved in the attack on Burtgang, but chose to leave the Clan after he found out it was done in the name of the Empire.

    The Mask  
A magus who is seeking the ultimate Black Magic spell. He is watching over Sol and Nacht for some mysterious reason. He is actually Elgo in disguise. Part of Elgo, anyway.

  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Shows up to save Edna from Styx in the nick of time.
    • And then again to save Glaive from being killed by Imperial soldiers.
    • And again to save all four Dark Warriors from Cocytus.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Three times. First, he defends the Warriors of Darkness from Cocytus, then he performs what appears to be a self-sacrificing move in order to restore health to the Warriors as they fight Chaos Elgo, and then his spirit helps to hold back the tide of light from the exploding Nil.
  • Literal Split Personality: The Mask is Elgo's self-doubt and morality made manifest, and was split from him when the Crystal shattered the world in two.
  • Mysterious Protector: Although not in a Shojo or Magical Girl series, he still serves the same role. He wears a domino mask and pops up to save the party in the nick of time multiple times and then vanishing before he can be thanked.
  • The Red Mage: Has both Black and White magic, although he is stronger in the offense department. Fitting, considering his identity.
  • Magic Staff
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Twice.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy

Various NPCs

    Bikke 

The Pirate King. He and his men have closed off Port Capo on Styx's orders.

    Sigurd 
A Dark Knight from Falgabard who is renowned as its "hero". He dies during the Empire's assault of Falgabard. He's also Nacht's father.

    Tobikage 
The adopted son of the Elder of the Fuga Clan, and Jinnai's adopted brother.

Imperials

    The Emperor 
The ruler of the Empire. He has been alive for at least 100 years.

For tropes applying to who's under the armor, see Elgo's entry under Spoiler Characters.

  • Genocide Backfire: His tendency to kill all but one Sole Survivor in multiple towns is what eventually leads to his defeat.
  • Really 700 Years Old
  • Tin Tyrant: His armor calls Exdeath to mind, among others. However, you never fight him in the armor. The party attacks an empty suit of armor they are led to believe contains the Emperor. When they face the Emperor for real, he is wearing the same Red Mage outfit he always has been.
  • You Have Failed Me: To Cid.

    Cid 
A commander of an airship in the Imperial fleet. It is he that "recruits" Nacht, Alba, Dusk, and Sarah to steal the Lux Crystal.

  • The Cavalry: Comes to save Argy's airship alongside his Argy-2s and Mysidian mages.
  • Disney Death
  • Heel–Face Turn
  • Kick the Dog: His treatment of Argy as nothing more than a machine and striking Dr. Lugae when he objects certainly qualifies.
  • Magitek: His specialty.
  • Mythology Gag: He's a villainous Magitek scientist with an airship. It seems they incorporated nearly all the Cid traits into one crazy package.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Everything he does has a logical reason and a goal behind it. From conscripting and arming prisoners of war for a suicide mission, to treating Lugae poorly when the mad scientist spends all his time on his pet project and very little on practical work.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: And a blue mustache.

    Dr. Lugae 
A Magitek scientist working for the Empire. He is the creator of Argy.

    Baugauven of the Flame 
One of the Empire's four generals. He's extremely vicious and without mercy.

    Vata of the Wind 
One of the Empire's four generals. He's headstrong and ruthless. He later manages to steal the Dragoon job that was meant for the Light Warriors only, and turns its powers against them.

    Asmodai of the Earth 
One of the Empire's four generals. He is impersonating King Feyr. He is a firm believer in prophecies.

    Styx of the Water 
One of the Empire's four generals. She is a witch who relies on trickery and traps.

    Shango of the Lightning 
One of the four Divine Generals of the Empire, with the power of lightning.

  • Graceful Loser: With his last words he expresses his wish that he had met people like the Warriors back when he was still human.
  • Meaningful Name: In Yoruba mythology, Shango is the god of fire, lightning, and thunder. This is carried over to Haitian voodoo, where he is venerated as the god of thunder and weather.
  • Shock and Awe
  • Sorting Algorithm of Evil: Only appears after you have defeated the Four Generals multiple times.
  • You Have Failed Me: To Styx after she is defeated by the party for the third time.

    Cocytus of the Ice 
One of the four Divine Generals, with the power of ice.

    Imperio of the Light 
One of the four Divine Generals, with the power of light. He seems to have the position of the Emperor's right hand.

  • Affably Evil: to contrast with the violent Shango or icy Cocytus, he is very polite, and treats the Warriors like "honored guests" when they approach Avalon Castle. He even asks politely for them to offer the Crystals to the empire before defaulting to battle when they refuse.
  • Light 'em Up: Wields the power of light in battle, obviously.
  • Light Is Not Good: He is endowed with the power of light, but he is firmly on the side of the Empire.
  • Meaningful Name: "Imperio" is Spanish for "empire". A fitting name for the man who acts as the de-facto leader of the empire when the Emperor is too busy.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: When the battle begins to go poorly for him, he transforms into Gehenna of the Darkness. More of a differently superpowerd, more evil side, really.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: He is also Gehenna of the Darkness

    Gehenna of the Darkness 
One of the four Divine Generals, with the power of darkness. A total enigma; it is said that nobody has ever seen him, save for the emperor.

  • The Berserker: In contrast to the upstanding Imperio, Gehenna is like a wild beast once he begins his fight with the party.
  • Casting a Shadow: Wields the power of darkness.
  • Meaningful Name: "Gehenna" is a place of torment in Jewish faith roughly analogous to Hell. It is also said to be deeply cursed, once being a place of sacrifices to Moloch.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Pretty much insane and loving it. He is said to throw around black magic like a child playing with a doll.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: He is actually another side of Imperio, who comes out when Imperio begins to lose his fight with the party
  • Yin-Yang Bomb He is also Imperio of the Light.

The Job Classes

While not characters, these jobs add characterization tropes to the two groups of Warriors.

Jobs common to both groups:

    Freelancer 
The base job class for the heroes, although not for any of the Guest Star Party Members. It can equip any weapon or armor and has four slots for class skills.

    Warrior 
A class that specializes in physical attacks. Can equip nearly all of the melee weapons plus bows.

  • Chainmail Bikini: The female Warriors have significantly less armor than the males.

    Monk 
A martial arts specialist class. Equips claws.

    Thief 
A speedy class that can steal from enemies. Also has an ability to increase item drop rate. Equips daggers, katanas, bows, and boomerangs.

    Red Mage 
A Jack-of-All-Trades class that generalizes in physical attacks and black and white magic, but specializes in nothing.

    White Mage 
A class specializing in healing and status buffs.

    Black Mage 
A class specializing in offensive magic and negative status ailments.

    Summoner 
A class that summons Eidolons for powerful magic damage.

Jobs only available to the Light Warriors:

    Dragoon 
A heavily armored class that utilizes the series' signature Jump move. It also has access to breath attacks that hit all enemies.

    Bard 
A class that relies on the magic of music for attacking.

    Memorist 
Memorists can use all abilities known by the character, but there is a catch. Using the Memorandum ability replaces all of a character's battle commands with those randomly chosen from commands they know.

  • Jack-of-All-Trades: A Memorist can use any ability in the game, provided you've learned them. They can also equip any weapon or armor.
  • Magikarp Power: In order to get full utility out of this class you'll need to level other jobs first.
  • One-Way Visor

    Paladin 
A heavily armored class that uses class specific holy swords, holy sword abilities, and white magic.

    Seer 

Jobs available only to the Dark Warriors:

    Ranger 
Master archers who rely on speed.

    Dark Knight 
An armored melee class that uses the class-specific dark swords.

  • Cast from Hit Points: Darkness and Onyx Wave consume one third of your max HP to use.
  • Casting a Shadow: Most of their attacks and their class-specific weapons are Dark elemental.
  • Heroic RRoD: Last Resort massively improves all of the Dark Knight's stats, but inflicts Doom on them, killing them after a count of 10.
  • Life Drain: Gains the HP Drain ability, which restores HP proportional to the amount of physical damage the character does.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me
  • Mighty Glacier: Normally. However, it can gain a skill that makes itself stronger, faster and tougher. Then it becomes a Lightning Bruiser. The disadvantage to using this skill however, is that the user casts Doom on him/herself and gets Knocked Out shortly after.
  • Standard Status Effects: Curse causes both Curse and Sap status effects.

    Dancer 
A class that relies on magic dances to heal the party or debuff enemies.

  • Mana Drain: Osmose dance works like the Black Magic spell of the same name.

    Ninja 

    Magus 

SPOILER CHARACTERS

    Elgo, Emperor of Avalon 
"An emperor must be the absolute symbol of the land, feared by one and all. The position exists beyond the realm of age and death, like a god among mortals. My people have always been ruled by an emperor since time immemorial. But I hungered for more than temporal power. I wanted the strength of the Crystals to defy death itself and reign until the very end of days!"

Elgo was never what he appeared, being the true Big Bad. He is actually the Emperor, and he seeks to use the power of the crystals to become a god and cheat death. The crystals themselves sense this and attempt to keep him from gaining them all, and by game's end he is almost successful...that is, until he loses his control over the Nil and is absorbed, becoming Chaos Elgo.

    The Nil 
An ancient power of nothingness residing within the Void, or perhaps the Void itself. This incarnation of the Void is unique in that the concept itself seems to be sentient, as well as malignant, therefore giving it the traits of a character. In it's great bid to return everything to non-existence, the Nil created a host of powerful monsters known as the Armies of Nil, led by the Blades of Nil (Suffering, Despair, Anguish and Misery). It used Elgo to further it's omnicidal designs, giving him power in exchange for an opportunity to manifest in the wolds of light and dark. It is the source of the Dark Flows, which are similar to portals and lead to various areas of the Void. It is fought directly twice, once when Vata sacrifices himself by forcing the Nil to use him as a host and is defeated in battle, and the second time as the Final Boss, Chaos Elgo, where it manifests enough of it's power to nearly kill the party.

  • Achilles' Heel: May only be some part of or particularly powerful Void entity/elemental rather than the whole thing, considering that it can be permanently killed by forcing it to descend into a living being to use as a host. Vata proved the concept by absorbing and bonding with a Dark Flow, and Chaos Elgo carried it all the way.
  • Eldritch Abomination: One of the truest examples in the series, being an incomprehensible, unseeable, paradoxically sentient force of pure nothingness.
  • Elemental Embodiment: Can be said to have gone past the embodiment phase, given how it doesn't physically exist at all, but it's close to one for Nothingness.
  • Enigmatic Empowering Entity: An evil variant, providing the Big Bad with the power he needs to enact his plot.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Elgo found out the hard way.
  • Expy: Seems to be one of The Nothing from The Neverending Story, being a force of seemingly sentient, literal nothingness.
  • Final Boss: After manifesting as Chaos Elgo, dualing up with Elgo himself in this regard.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Elgo may be the Big Bad, but the Nil is his main backer; without it, he'd have gotten nowhere.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: When left to its own devices, it attempts to destroy the universe completely.
  • Power of the Void
  • Sentient Cosmic Force
  • Ultimate Evil: A rare case of this for the franchise. It's nothingness, so you can't really see it at all, and it has no physical shape and form of his own, meaning it is never really seen itself. It can manifest itself in others, however, such as Vata and Elgo. As such, it's not The Unfought.
  • Walking Spoiler: As far as "walking" is concerned, anyways.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Seems to be associated with both light and dark when manifesting, with the Dark Flows giving a dark edge.
