- Always with You: Tells Dennis he'll always be with him in a cutscene... which Dennis skips.

- Gameplay and Story Segregation: Dennis can still court him regardless of his mood by gifting him with a book.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: Archibald is never seen without his sword.
- Ignored Expert: Archibald often provides key information and suggestions during combat and exploration which nobody seems to want to follow.

The second female party member.
- Boobs of Steel: According to her, she uses her breasts to fight.
- Heroes Prefer Swords: She uses one in combat along with her breasts.

The last remaining party members recruited.
