    Main Characters 

Alphonse Loeher

Class: Soldier
Birthday: Tierra 22 (02/15) — default
Element: Varies
Alignment: Varies

Protagonist of Knight of Lodis. A young knight from the Felis region of Lodis, assigned to the Order of the Sacred Flame. He leaves Lodis with his friend and commander, Rictor Lasanti, for the island of Ovis.

  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His battle sprite has blue hair. Despite this, his portrait has black hair. The distinctive shade also hints that he is in fact a young Lanselot Tartaros.

Eleanor Olato

Class: Soldier
Birthday: Sombra 7 (03/20)
Element: Water
Alignment: Neutral

A young, orphaned girl living at a church on Solea beach. She finds Alphonse washed up on the shore and saves his life. Alphonse later returns to her to gain information on mermaids. He would later save her life from northern troops, who likewise had come for information on the mermaids. She accompanies him from then on, and the two become lovers.

  • Blessed with Suck: Her pearl necklace, which has the power to protect her. Unfortunately, it's rather overzealous about it and it's power kills a bully, which ends with her being driven out of her hometown. She ends up at the Solea church.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Appears to be completely unimportant, until a one-off line of her's about a mermaid becomes the main plot point.
  • Kid Hero: Her age isn't stated, but she's clearly younger than Alphonse.
  • Orphan's Plot Trinket: Her pearl necklace.
  • Rescue Romance: Interesting case. She initially saves Alphonse after finding him washed up on a beach. He later saves her from being kidnapped.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Despite all the misery and death Shaher's actions have caused, she can't bring herself to hate him but ultimately pities and even FORGIVES him, saying she understands how lonely and hurt he was at believing God turned his back on him. It makes her death all the more of an emotional sucker punch.

A former knight of Ranaculus and the niece of Lord Naris.

Cybil Alinda

Class: Sorceress

Rictor Lasanti

Class: High Priest
Birthday: Trevas 6 (08/12)
Element: Earth
Alignment: Lawful

The son of the Duke of Felis and a friend of Alphonse's. He is sent to Ovis under the guise of solving it's political turmoil, when in reality it is a power play by his father.

Orson Lamies

Class: Archer
Birthday: Deus 20 (01/20)
Element: Wind
Alignment: Lawful

An archer sent with Rictor to Ovis. Acts an adviser and mentor to both Rictor and Alphonse.


Class: Mermaid
Birthday: Branca 2 (04/08)
Element: Wind
Alignment: Neutral

The self-proclaimed strongest mermaid on Ovis. Harbors a grudge against humans for events in the past history of Ovis.

  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Despite being a mermaid, Aerial armor similar to humans and wields a silver lance in combat.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Under the impression that Alphonse injured another mermaid named Minerva, she attacks you. She never gives Alphonse the chance to explain himself, as he had actually saved said mermaid from an attack by Rictor's forces. Due to this, up to seven of her comrades end up dead.
    • However; this is different in the "B" path where the previous map has Minerva as the boss and can either be killed or reduced to a low health level and escape. So maybe she has a point for assuming you're dangerous. (Granted, Minerva was the one who attacked you, but she's not telling that.)

    Recruitable Characters

  • Poor Communication Kills: When he's confronted by Euphaire, he assumes that she's still possessed by her dead mother's soul, and is willing to kill her so that both can rest in peace.
