Ares Lovina
A Fated Bloodline
Voiced by: Shuta Morishima
The main protagonist of the story. While trying to save his life after his hometown gets destroyed, he come across a mysterious sword hidden in a altar. He later learns of its true nature: The holy sword Langrisser, only wielded by the Descendants of Light. He then starts a journey to find them, hoping to learn about the whereabouts of his disappeared sister Licorice.

  • Anti-Hero: The Empire Route as a whole paints him as this towards the Army of Light.
  • Anti-Villain: In the Dark Route.
  • Badass Cape: A red one.
  • Bi the Way: He can have a relationship with any of the male characters.
  • The Chosen One: According to the Army of Light because Langrisser chose him, which is rather ironic since he's a descendant of Boser.
  • The Hero
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Become this in the Empire Route.
  • Heroic Albino
  • Humble Hero: Even though he was chosen by Langrisser, he doesn't like to brag about it and thinks of it as a useful weapon.
  • Take a Third Option: At the end of the Light Route, when he is presented with the Sadistic Choice of letting his sister -and Boser- live, or killing her -thus sealing him- to end his legacy. He instead uses Langrisser to seal half of Boser's stigma between himself and his sister to prevent his awakening, since as her brother, he's also a descendant of Boser too.
    • He can refuse to pick a side for his sister's sake, leading into the Independence Route.

    Gresden Empire 

General Tropes
Tropes relating to the Gresden Empire.
  • Anti-Villain: The Project Elysium requires them to gather any resources as they can to save their own people with the Ark, at the expense of the others.
  • The Empire: Big time. Autokrato IV's very first order in the game is to destroy the homeland of Ares to begin the invasion of the country. However, it becomes less tyrannical after Prime Minister Flore's faction comes in to power.
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: Several members of the Empire don't want to follow the orders of the Emperor. They execute them anyway since they don't have much of a choice, for the sake of the Elysium Project. Possibly subverted should Ares choose to join the Prime Minister Flore, giving them an opportunity to dethrone the Emperor and completing the project with the help of Langrisser.
  • The Needs of the Many: In all routes but the Empire's, since they don't have the power of Langrisser to help them.
  • Ominous Floating Castle: The Floating City Esperanza act as their capital city, and the Ark as their headquarters.
  • Steam Punk: The only faction who uses vehicles, flying machines and guns in the war.
  • Wave Motion Gun: The Railway Gun Gaeser, though it was intended as a deterrent weapon. The Emperor said otherwise.
  • Would Not Shoot a Civilian: Played straight in the Empire's route, subverted in the others.
