The Warriors of Light

    Sol 

Sol

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fflwolad_sol.png
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, and has a dream to ride in the Empire of Avalon's airships one day.
  • 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.
  • Innocently Insensitive: He says something hurtful to Diana, oblivious of her feelings for him. Glaive doesn't hesitate to call him out for it.
  • Love Triangle: Involved in one with Glaive and Diana. Diana is in love with him, but he has no clue whatsoever. Sol, in turn, is implied to gain feelings for Sarah.
  • 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 red and Bartz wears blue as Freelancers.
  • Oblivious to Love: He is oblivious to Diana's feelings for him.
  • 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 

Aigis

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fflwolad_aigis1.png
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.
  • The Ace: He is already known as a skilled fighter at the beginning of the story.
  • Big Brother Mentor: To both Sol and Glaive.
  • Meaningful Name: "Aigis" means benevolent protection. The character starts with the Cover ability, which causes him to jump in front of characters with low hit points and take the hit for him. He is also the hero of Lux, and implied to protect the area from threats.
  • Only Sane Man: Perhaps the most grounded of the Warriors of Light.
  • Promotion to Parent: Was ten when his and Diana's parents died.
  • The Red Mage / Magic Knight: He starts with red magic and a sword initially, but after jobs open up it's up to the player.
  • Taking the Bullet: Starts with the Cover ability.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: A straight example.

    Sarah aka Princess Sarah of Burtgang 

Sarah

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fflwolad_sarah1.png
A mysterious girl captured by the Empire and forced to work for them. She appears to have some sort of unknown power.
  • Broken Bird: She starts off very withdrawn and composed, but it's to hide her tragic past.
  • Distress Ball: Sarah runs off on her own to Burtgang Castle and nearly gets herself killed by the Empire for her trouble. Luckily for her, Gawain shows up in time to rescue her.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She is shown to be caring for anyone she meets.
  • Happily Adopted: Was adopted by Burtgang Royal Army's ex-commander, who also survived the empire's assault. Didn't last long, though.
  • Long Hair Is Feminine: The only character with longer hair than her is Dusk.
  • Meaningful Rename: Was renamed as "Lassah" by her adoptive father to protect her identity. After he died, she changed her name back to "Sarah".
  • Mystical Waif: She starts off quite mysterious and Sol doesn't trust her at first. Fittingly, she is quite suited to magical jobs.
  • Mythology Gag: A walking one. She's not the first magically-oriented female character named Sarah in the series. Nor is she the first to be a princess.
  • Nice Girl: Kind to nearly everyone, especially animals most of the time.
  • Really Royalty Reveal: A core member of the party that you later find out she's a princess.
  • The Smurfette Principle: She is the only female Light Warrior.
  • Stepford Smiler: She hides a dark past behind her caring, but withdrawn demeanor.
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl: Especially in earlier parts of the game.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Wavy and blue.

    Dusk 

Dusk

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fflwolad_dusk1.png
A young, serene, and composed man from Harmonia who was "recruited" by the Empire to do their dirty work. He is Alba's twin brother.

The Warriors of Darkness

    Nacht 

Nacht

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fflwolad_nacht1.png
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.

    Alba 

Alba

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fflwolad_alba1.png
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.

    Diana 

Diana

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fflwolad_diana1.png
Diana is a kind-spirited young woman from Lux. She is Sol and Glaive's childhood friend, and Aigis's younger sister.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Sweetie", from Alba.
  • Distress Ball: When infiltrating the Imperial Base, only Diana manages to get lost while running away and get herself captured.
  • The Heart / The Chick: Diana serves in this role for whichever group of heroes she's with.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She loves all animals and looking after her friends.
  • Girly Girl: To Alba's Tomboy.
  • Love Triangle: Diana is in love with Sol (who in turn starts to get feelings for Sarah), but Glaive is in love with her.
  • Meaningful Name: Diana is a reference to the goddess of the Moon, which not only symbolizes her status as a Warrior of Darkness, but also her relationship with Sol.
  • True Blue Femininity: She is associated with the color blue.
  • Tsundere: Usually very sweet unless it's Sol we're talking about.
  • White Mage: She starts with this skillset initially, although after jobs are available it opens up. Her alignment pretty much forces her to take another role eventually.
  • Women Are Wiser: She is more centered and mature than Sol and Glaive.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Like several others in the cast.

    Glaive 

Glaive

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fflwolad_glaive.png
A ponytailed young man from Lux. He is Aigis's 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.
  • Brutal Honesty: He will tell it like it is to his friends, especially if someone says something hurtful to someone else.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: He just can't tell Diana he loves her.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: To Diana and Alba.
  • Hot-Blooded: Especially when Diana's safety is involved.
  • Love Triangle: Glaive is in love with Diana, but she only has eyes for Sol (who in turn is hinted to develop feelings for Sarah).
  • 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, though it is definitely the Friendly Rivalry sort, as they're best friends.

Allies of Light

    Elgo 

Elgo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fflwolad_ergo1.png
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.


  • Crutch Character: As the very first guest, he is this due to his wide range of abilities that are very helpful for the beginning portion of the game.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: The very first.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Twice. First he jumps in front of an attack that would have finished the party, taking 9999 damage. Then he somehow gets up and grabs the helm of the out-of-control airship, giving the party time to escape before finally dying in the fiery crash.
  • Literal Split Personality: He was split into a Light and Dark copy of himself when the world split in two, one left in each of the worlds.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: As seen in his image.
  • Nice Hat: As a Red Mage, it's a given.
  • The Red Mage: Elgo's job class is Red Mage.
  • Simple Staff: Uses this in battle despite having a sword in his character art, and unlike the usual depictions of Red Mages throughout the series.

    Barbara 

Barbara

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_barbara1.png
A dragoon who has been raised by dragons and moogles. She is fiercely protective of her "family".

    Eduardo 

Eduardo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_eduardo1.png
A world-famous bard from the port town of Rusalka. He has fallen in love with a mermaid.
  • Interspecies Romance: At least, that's what you're meant to think. She's actually his mother, and they both know it.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifting: Not once, but twice. When we first meet him he's been transformed into a frog, but in his backstory he is a merman transformed into a human to save him from a childhood disease.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: The second one to join the Warriors of Light.
  • Magic Music: Eduardo has the Bard job innately. It can be used for Standard Status Effects andHealing and Buffing Magic.
  • Musical Assassin: He fights with a harp, as player Bards are able to after unlocking the job.
  • Mythology Gag: To Edward the bard in looks, name, and gameplay.
  • Spoony Bard: Oh, yes. Especially since he spends a good chunk of time as a frog, which lowers his defense.
    • He's most useful as a sort of persistent Status Buff, using Brave Ballad to raise offense, Magical Madrigal to raise magic, or Aiding Anthem to cause Regen.
  • Shout-Out: To the The Little Mermaid and The Frog Prince fairy tales.
  • True Love's Kiss: It changes him back from a frog, of course. Although in this case, it's less "passionate true love" and more "motherly kiss on the forehead". Thank goodness.

    Argy 

Argy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_argy1.png
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.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: The third to join the Warriors of Light.
  • 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.
  • Robot Girl: Built by Dr. Lugae.
  • 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.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: The Warriors of Light, particularly Sol and Sarah, help to teach her what love is.

    Gawain 

Gawain

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_gawain1.png
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.
  • The Alcoholic: The party finds him in the midst of drowning his sorrows.
  • Arch-Enemy: Jinnai is his, until they bury the hatchet near the finale after realizing who the true enemy is.
  • The Atoner: After he learns Sarah is alive, he fights to atone for his mistakes.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: With Jinnai, near the end of the game, when they are holding off the forces of Nil.
  • Badass Cape: A given, since he is a paladin and a powerful ally.
  • The Cavalry: Shows up just in time to rescue Sarah from Imperial forces.
  • Disney Death: After his Heroic Sacrifice, he is later seen holding off the forces of Nil near the end of the game with Jinnai, Matoya, and Bikke.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: The fourth to join the Warriors of Light.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Gives up his life to buy Sarah and the party time to escape from Shango.
  • Holy Hand Grenade / Light 'em Up: The Holy Blade abilities, which are almost all Holy elemental.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: As a Paladin, he can also wield shields.
  • Magic Knight / Combat Medic: As a paladin, he fights with a sword and gets holy sword techniques. He also gets access to White Magic up to level 4.
  • Meaningful Name: Gawain was the greatest of the Knights of the Round table, was portrayed as a brash warrior who was fiercely loyal to his king and country, and was known as the Maiden's Knight. That describes this Gawain to a T, especially his vow to protect Princess Sarah.
  • Sole Survivor: At least, so he thinks. He's overjoyed to find Sarah survived, too.
  • Survivor Guilt: He feels guilt over being the Sole Survivor of the massacre at Burtgang.

    Sophia 

Sophia

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_sophia.png
The leader of the magic city Mysidia.
  • Animal-Eared Headband: Her cat-ear hood.
  • The Arch Mage: Fittingly, as the Elder of Mysidia.
  • Badass Adorable: She may look like a little girl wearing a costume, but she is quite knowledgeable and serves as a powerful Seer in battle.
  • Godzilla Threshold: She joins the party because she thinks it's time to unseal the great forbidden White Magic - Holy.
  • Insistent Terminology: Is quite prone to casting Thundaga (or Thunder) on people who call her "gaunt girl" instead of "Great Elder".
    • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Even then, she will forgive those who call her "gaunt girl", as long as they say it with respect. Which Sol learns in a hard way.
  • Older Than They Look: She looks like a young girl, but is actually an Elder.
  • The Red Mage: As a seer, gains access to both white and black magic, although she is stronger in white magic.
  • Simple Staff: She comes equipped with the Shining Staff.

Allies of Darkness

    Gramps aka King Feyr of the Elves 

Gramps

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_old_man1_0.png
An old blind man living near the Mazewood. Despite his blindness, he is a master archer. And a pervert.

    Graham 

Graham

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_gram1.png
A Dark Knight and the sole survivor of the massacre at Falgabard.
  • Animated Armor: It turns out he is this.
  • Badass Cape: As seen in his image.
  • 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 and acts sort of like a Spirit Advisor.
  • 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.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: The second to join the Warriors of Darkness. Unlike some of the others, he does find a way to remain in the party. As a weapon in your inventory, that is.
  • 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.
  • Mighty Glacier: He is slow but strong, like a Dark Knight used by the player.
  • Sole Survivor: Well, except for Nacht who wasn't at the castle at the time.
  • Standard Status Effects: Curse causes both Curse and Sap status effects.
  • Talking Weapon: He becomes one after losing the armor, as a sword that the party can wield.

    Matoya 

Matoya

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_matoya1.png
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 

Jinnai

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_jinnai1.png
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.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: With Gawain, at the end of the game.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Tobikage's Cain.
  • Defector from Decadence: Upon learning his clan sided with the Avalon Empire, and realizing how far from their values they've derailed with the attack on the kingdom of Burtgang, he's remained in hiding since rebelling against his clan's unethical choices.
  • Dual Wielding: In the flashback to the attack on Burtgang, he has Dual Wield ability. In the present day, he can't exactly do that, due to having only one arm.
  • Elemental Powers: The Ninjitsu abilities Flame, Flood, Blitz, Tremor, and Gale.
  • Flechette Storm: He can throw shuriken in battle.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: The fourth to join the Dark Warriors.
  • Handicapped Badass: He lost his right arm after Gawain injured him in Burtgang, but has "mastered swordsmanship", to the point that he now deals more damage with one arm than most of the party can deal with any of their swords.
  • Human Popsicle: Cocytus of Ice freezes him in one, but he recovers by the end of the game to help against the forces of Nil.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: As a ninja, he can wield them.
  • Left-Handed Mirror: To Tobikage. Both are adopted sons of the Elder, but while Jinnai defected after learning his clan was working for the Empire, Tobikage stayed and embraced their new ideology. Interestingly, this split happened right after Jinnai lost his right arm, forcing him to become left handed.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He is fast and strong as a party member.
  • Ninja: Obviously.
  • Smoke Out: Using Smoke Bombs to run away from battles is one of his favorite tricks.
  • Standard Status Effects: Flash (blind) and Noxious Gas (poison).
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Like many others in the cast.

    The Mask 

The Mask

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_maskedman1.png
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.
    • One final time, at the end of the game, his spirit, along with Vata's and Freyr's saves Dusk and Alba, teleporting them away after they stay back to hold off the Nil from devouring them.
  • 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.
  • Mask Power: Masked and a powerful mage.
  • Mysterious Protector: Although not in a Shōjo 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: He wields them in battle.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Twice. He is the last to join the Dark Warriors' party.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Just like Elgo.

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 Emperor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_greatemperor1.png
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.


  • Big Bad: The main antagonist of the game.
  • The Emperor: Obviously.
  • 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: He's well over 100 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.
  • Walking Spoiler: There's a lot more to him than there seems to be.
  • You Have Failed Me: To Cid, who survives the ordeal.

    Cid 

Cid

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_sid1.png
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.
  • Graceful Loser: After the party defeats him, he isn't too proud to tell them of an escape route from the exploding airship, while he chooses to go down with the ship himself.
  • The Heavy: He drives most of the plot as far as the imperials are concerned.
  • Heel–Face Turn: It takes a while, but he eventually comes to the party's aid to help them stop the Nil, thanks to the Argy-2's witnessing his status as a Graceful Loser and saving him.
  • 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.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Ties into his Pragmatic Villainy aspect.
  • 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.
  • Redemption Earns Life: After he saves the party as detailed under Graceful Loser, the Argy-2's, which he previously ridiculed, rescue him after he saved their "friends." The act is enough to move him to tears and leads to his Heel–Face Turn.
  • 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 

Baugauven

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_baugaven1.png
Baugauven, ever cocky and warlike, is known by friend and foes alike as the Explosive Berserker. His command over the Empire's special forces leave no doubt as to the power he wields, and his "Final Backdraft" attack leaves his enemies scorched into lifeless husks.

    Vata of the Wind 

Vata

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_vata.png
Mercenaries aren't often bound to a higher calling, but Vata is the exception that prove the rule. Brash and unpredictable, he excels at guerrilla warfare.

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.


  • Arch-Enemy: Sol's.
  • Blow You Away: As one might guess.
  • Breath Weapon: Which he gets from stealing the Dragoon job crystal.
  • The Cameo: He appears as a Signet in Final Fantasy Dimensions II as a wind elemental summon.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He is said to specialize in guerilla warfare, and he does something unprecedented that no other Final Fantasy villain has done before - he learns to job change just like the player!
  • Heel–Face Turn: Sabotages the Helioglabalus and helps the Light Warriors escape it before it crashes. Later, he gives his life to give the party the chance to defeat the Emperor.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Allows himself to be possessed by the Dark Flow so that the Warriors' attacks can affect it.
  • In a Single Bound: He's pretty good at this after stealing the Dragoon job crystal.
  • Meaningful Name: Vata is an alternate spelling of Vayu, the Hindu lord of the winds.

    Asmodai of the Earth 

Asmodai

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_asmodai.png
Don't be fooled by his composed demeanor—Asmodai is a vicious villain who has long abandoned mercy and compassion. Subterfuge and espionage are his weapons of choice, but when forced into direct combat, he commands powerful miasmas drawn forth from the earth that rots whatever he treads.
One of the Empire's four generals. He is impersonating King Feyr. He is a firm believer in prophecies.

    Styx of the Water 

Styx

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_styx1.png
The lone female member of the four Generals, Styx the Witch is a cunning enchantress with a penchant for popping up unexpectedly. Her dominion over the forces of water enable her to manipulate liquid as she sees fit, and she uses its glassy reflection to conceal her true form.
One of the Empire's four generals. She is a witch who relies on trickery and traps.

    Shango of the Lightning 

Shango

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_shango1.png
Master of lightning, Shango commands powers of which the four generals can barely conceive. A giant among men, he stands more than ten feet tall, his imposing figure striking fear in all he faces. His sword techniques are far above and beyond those of the other divine generals.
One of the four Divine Generals of the Empire, with the power of lightning.
  • BFS: He wields an enormous greatsword.
  • The Giant: He stands more than ten feet tall.
  • 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: A master of lightning magic.
  • 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 

Cocytus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_cocytus.png
Cocytus is the divine general who commands the bone-shattering forces of ice. It is only fitting, than, that her expression is cold and her attitude frigid, with emotion being something she knows only the weak possess.
One of the four Divine Generals, with the power of ice.

    Imperio of the Light 

Imperio

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffl_char_empireo.png
Imperio, right hand man of the Emperor, serves as the unofficial leader of the other three divine generals. In comparison with the violent Shango and the icy Cocytus, he is dignified and refined, with a slight smile always gracing his lips.
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.
  • The Dragon: Apparently the Emperor's right hand man, though we never see them interact.
  • 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.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Appears for one cutscene and one battle before transforming into Gehenna, who is similarly finished off quickly.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: He is also Gehenna of the Darkness

    Gehenna of the Darkness 

Gehenna

None in Avalon have a darker personality than Gehenna, he who wields black magic as deftly as a child playing with her doll. Yet his existence may be nothing more than rumor, as even throughout the Empire none are said to have seen his form...
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: Even more than Bagauven, 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 

Emperor Elgo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ffd_chaos_elgo.png
Chaos Elgo
"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: It is a manifestation of the Void itself.
  • Sentient Cosmic Force: Again, of the Void.
  • 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.
