Player Characters in IV

His appearance in Mobile

Landius is a Crimzoninan, and the primary protagonist of Langrisser IV. He is the only protagonist in the series who is not a Descendant of Light; however, he is still able to harness the full power of the Langrisser sword.

He was born in Recrio village, a riverside hamlet on the frontier of the Regenburg Federation. Recrio was a village inhabited by both humans and Crimzonian Landers. Landius and his sister Emily were washed away from the village when Aizel flooded it to wipe out the Crimzonian Landers.

In Langrisser V, he is allied with the Kingdom of Caconsis.


The true son of the Gohtal village chief, who calls Landius his older brother and Rachel his older sister. He is somewhat a narcissist and a ladies' man, and is a little too trusting. He ends up falling for Shelfaniel and, because of that, becomes involved in the fate of Caconsis kingdom.

    Mc Claine

McClaine is a wandering mercenary who joins the entourage early in the story of Langrisser IV. One day, while walking through a forest with his sister, they were both knocked out and abducted by Omega. The result of a year of experiments while trapped in Gizlof's laboratory replaced the left side of McClaine's body with machinery, turning him into a cyborg. The people in his village were terrified of him and drove him out. From then on he grew out his hair to cover his robotic left eye.

In Langrisser V, he is allied with the Kingdom of Caconsis. He is still searching for his sister Mariandel.


A princess of the kingdom of Caconsis. She is the younger sister of Shelfaniel, and the daughter of King Caconsis and Queen Caconsis.

In Langrisser V, she is still alongside her sister in the Kingdom of Caconsis.



A princess of the kingdom of Caconsis. She is the elder sister of Angelina and the daughter of King Caconsis and Queen Caconsis.

In Langrisser V, she is now ruling the Kingdom of Caconsis.


Ricky's elder sister. While not of direct blood relation, she always calls Landius her elder brother. When Gizlof attacked Gotahl village, her father, the village chief, boarded her up in the church to protect her. However, she was still kidnapped by Gizlof. She's very innocent and a little childish.

A general in the Caconshis army. She has feelings for Wiler; though never expressed, you can hear it in her words. She is a very graceful woman. Due to her involvement in the army, she comes to fight alongside with Landius.

Serena appears later in Langrisser V as a general in the Caconshis army, the programmed enemy of Werner and Lambda.

His appearance in Mobile

An aristocrat in the military who graduated the Federation academy at the top of his class. He doesn't boast this excellent background. Younger brother of Clifford.

Ranford is also one of the main protagonists of Langrisser V.

The avatar of a goddess, that has made appearances throughout the series. See the main index for more information.

In Langrisser V, she is not tied to any of the main factions.


Her appearance in Mobile

A mid-ranking commander in the Velzerian forces. Although she does have her own merits, she fails so many missions that Böser treats her as a problem child. After she is defeated by Landius she decides to follow him, since going back to Böser would mean her certain death. She becomes a valuable asset for the team, teaching them about the culture and tactics of the demon tribe.

A low-ranking commander in the Velzerian forces who follows Listell. He has the ability to transform into many different kinds of monsters. He joins Landius after being defeated, since going back to Böser would mean his certain death.

Kingdom of Caconsis

Admiral of the Caconsis army. He is a brilliant tactician, however he's far too weak to actually participate in battle. After his schooling he began his career with the Caconsis Kingdom as an admiral.

In Langrisser V, he is the programmed enemy of Werner and Mariandel.

An able man that struggles to serve the incompetent King Caconsis. In reality, he is a spy sent by Gizlof to facilitate the take over of Caconsis. While he hates King Caconsis, he had nothing against Angelina and Shelfaniel.

    King Caconsis 
The father of Angelina and Shelfaniel. He never fails to mention or make it clear that he is the king. He's quick to act and slow to think and that proves to be a bad combination. He sees everyone around him, even his own wife and daughters, as means to get what he wants with no thought of the consequences. He is easily assuaged by hollow flattery and simple words, which is why Wiler and the others find it far easier to work around him instead of with him.

    Queen Caconsis 
The queen of the Caconsis, mother of Angelina and Shelfaniel. She has a gentle personality that is not into politics, but has a keen eye for strategy. She tries to persuade her husband to act but it's useless.

With the village ruined and her father dead, Emily is sent to an orphanage, and eventually released to attend a military academy.

In Langrisser V, she is promoted to general by Queen Rozenciel after Ranford is promoted to Marshal. Later in the story, she assists in exposing Russel's plot against Ranford and secures his release from jail.

A valiant general of Regenburg who climbed the ranks through competence, not status. A friend of Ranford.

Though he dies during the events of IV, Valk is resurrected by Grove in V as a zombie; however, Ranford take his feelings aside and defeats him, making his his good friend finally rest in peace.
