     Zelos Wilder 

Zelos Wilder

A noble from Atlas, Zelos transfers to Beacon Academy to help Drake in his investigation to solve Lloyd’s murder and bring the one responsible to justice. While he appears to be a handsome lech and provides most of the comedy in the story, he's actually a troubled soul and finds solace in his friendships. He is Drake’s team partner and longtime best friend.

    • He has the classic asshole stepfather who discourages him from becoming a Huntsman and focus more on the family business.
    • He has very bitter feelings towards his mother and hates the idea of her controlling his life.
  • Beneath the Mask: Zelos’s womanizer attitude is mostly a facade. He is flirtatious, extroverted and suave, but it is revealed that he was extremely lonely as a child. He indicates that the overbearing control his mother and stepfather had over him led to a very difficult and unpleasant relationship with both of his parents. After becoming friends with Drake and Lloyd, he became more pleasant and considers them his true family.

  • The Casanova: Zelos is the classic ladies' man and very flirtatious. He also favors one-night-stands over long-term relationships.

  • Fiery Red Head: While not nearly as prone to anger as Luke, he is quite a force to be reckoned with when he reaches his breaking point.
  • Foil: Drake presents himself as aloof, moody and serious; he takes no interest in dating and prefers to keep to himself. Zelos appears extroverted, flirtatious and carefree; he flirts with almost any beauty he comes across, rarely takes things seriously and enjoys having a good time.
  • Handsome Lech: Zelos is a very handsome young man who will flirt with almost any pretty girl he comes across. Apparently, he's memorized the measurements of every girl in his class.

  • Spoiled Brat: When he was a kid. Befriending Drake and Lloyd helped change all that.
  • Undying Loyalty: To his friends.
    • But especially Drake. He’s willing to take more drastic measures for his friend’s sake, be it blackmailing, killing or even betraying. He’ll always do right by him, even if that means hurting him.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Drake. See the entry for this trope under him.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Does this to Blake. He had his reasons.

     Yuri Lowell 

Yuri Lowell

A noble from Mistral and one of Drake's circle of friends. His father, Lycaon Lowell, was the general of the Imperial Knights. After his father's death, Yuri was to be appointed their new general. While he is a talented fighter, he is easy-going, rude and somewhat lazy.
  • Age Lift: Initially 21 in Tales of Vesperia, Yuri is brought down to his teens.

  • Anti-Hero: Much like Drake, Yuri is willing to kill when the moment demands it and is willing to take the law into his own hands.

  • Katanas Are Just Better: His personal weapon, Abysson, gets more powerful the more it comes into contact with blood and Grimm flesh.

  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Yuri pretty much embodies this trope.

  • Combat Medic: Flynn has experience in medical techniques, but most of his talents are suited for combat.

  • Nice Guy: Flynn is easily one of the most soft-spoken and friendly of Drake’s friends. He's so nice, even Coco couldn't bring herself to tell him how horrendous his cooking is.

  • Berserk Button: Never, EVER call him "Asch".
  • Fiery Redhead: He's the most impatient and immature of Drake's friends.

Guy Cecil

A noble of Vacuo and Luke's best friend.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: With Luke.
  • Does Not Like Women: Averted. Despite his gynophobia, Guy does not harbor any particular dislike towards women. He just doesn't like it when a girl touches him or comes too close.
  • Hates Being Touched: Downplayed. He hates being touched by women. With his past, it's easy to understand why.
  • Heal It with Fire: Literally. Guy's semblance grants him an immunity to fire and the ability to heal his injuries so long as he's making contact with it. The only downside is he isn't immune to the pain. It's bad enough he has serious PTSD after being trapped inside a burning building as a child.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue to Luke's Red, seeing how he's the more rational and level-headed of the two.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: He is most definitely embodies this the most out of Drake's friends. When he was younger, his entire family was slaughtered and young Guy was trapped under a pile of dead bodies within a burning building. How could he NOT be traumatized from that?

     Jude Mathis 

Jude Mathis

A wolf Faunus and studying doctor. After the death of his mother, he was adopted into the Lowell household before studying to become a doctor.

While highly-intelligent, analytical and level-headed, he's a pacifist and prefers not to fight.
  • All of the Other Reindeer: It’s no surprise that Jude was bullied as a child due to him being a Faunus.
  • Badass Pacifist: Jude really, really, doesn’t want to kill anyone. He doesn’t even like hurting anyone; he studies to become a doctor and swore an oath to do no harm. However, when facing people who threatens him and the people he’s close to? He’ll use non-lethal force and fisticuffs.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Jude is a master at unarmed combat, capable of besting almost anyone into submission and not tarnishing his oath to pacifism.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Pacifist or not, Jude will still kick your ass if you piss him off.
  • Combat Medic: While he's unmatched in hand-to-hand combat, he's a doctor first.
  • Determinator: Jude refuses to stray from his ideals.
  • Handicapped Badass: Before arriving at Beacon, Jude had a confrontation with a very dangerous foe, which left him completely blind. Despite this, he can still navigate by sensing aura and using his advanced senses.
  • Nice Guy: His friends have argued that he’s too nice and too much of a do-gooder.
  • Martial Pacifist: While he does not take much pleasure in fighting, he is still willing to if he has no other choice and if someone he cares about is in danger.
  • Samaritan Syndrome: He has a hard time not offering help to those in need, even when it’s a complete stranger. (Like Milla Maxwell.)
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: While he’s perfectly fine dispatching Grimm, seeing how they have no souls, he refuses to take any life since it’s his duty as a medic to save lives. This rule even applies to the White Fang, even though Jude can never forgive them for what they’ve done.
  • Token Minority: Jude is the only Faunus in a brotherhood of friends.
