Anatomia, being the kind of game it is, has a large cavalcade of cast members.
open/close all folders
Voice: Miyuki Sawashiro
- Character Tic: Sighing. You would sigh as well if you had to deal with her einherjars' antics.
- Dude, Where's My Respect?: Because of her inexperience and more lenient stance, this Lenneth doesn't garner as much respect from the Einherjar.
- Expy: Is even more of one to Brynhildr than the original Lenneth due to having been sealed in a ring of fire and getting a potential love interest in Siegfried along the way.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Lenneth's new outfit in Anatomia looks like she's only wearing half of her usual outfit, perhaps since she seems to be younger and inexperienced. Her breastplate only covers one breast and she only has one pauldron on her left shoulder.
- Gentle Touch vs. Firm Hand: Sometimes deals with this issue when it comes to helping ease her Einherjar's transition to their new way of life.
- Heroic BSoD: Briefly suffers from one when Gullveig uses her Rays to mess with Lenneth's emotional state.
- Heroines Prefer Swords: Is limited to using swords for her regular attacks.
- Hotter and Sexier: Has a more revealing outfit than her original self.
- I Did What I Had to Do: Lenneth takes no joy in severing Thor's bonds to his human life, but has no choice in order to awaken his memories as a god. She's also tasked with some rather unsavory duties like killing off dangerous half-breeds.
- Quest for Identity: While seeking out more Einherjar for Odin, Lenneth sometimes goes out of her way to ask the other Aesir about her past.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Lenneth is extremely patient with her einherjar, often not scolding them when they run off to do their own thing and still helping them out in those situations.
- Reincarnation: Is an imperfect incarnation of Woglinde, one of the three legendary Rhinemaidens of ancient times and the object of Sephiroth's affections.
- Rejected Apology: Lenneth does show remorse for killing Sigurd's adopted father in self-defense, but the latter rejects her sincere apology.
- This Is Unforgivable!: Like the original Lenneth, she finds people who practice necromancy abhorrent and becomes less then happy when Odin orders her to make Daline an Einherjar.
Voice: Kōichi Yamadera
Muninn & Huginn
- Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Muninn often makes silly quips and is generally less prepared to handle Valkyrie's missions compared to Huginn. As a result, Lenneth listens to Huginn's advice often, but tends to ignore Muninn and walk away while he's talking to her.
- Tagalong Kid: Muninn or sometimes Huginn tags along with Lenneth to monitor her progress and enable her to communicate with Odin from a distance.
- Adaptational Heroism: Loki wasn't exactly the most moral of figures in the original game, but here he's more empathetic and virtuous.
- Refusal of the Call: Loki does this in order to look after the half-breeds suffering in Midgard.
- Foil: To Freya of the original Valkyrie Profile. Freya is fervent to the Aesir's cause and has a voluptuous adult figure while Norn only helps Odin out of obligation and is the Token Mini-Moe.
- Waif Prophet: One of her powers is predicting the future. This has caused Norn no end of grief in her human life.
- Split Personality: Following her ascension back to godhood, she has one of these, comprised of her god per and human personalities.
- I Hate Past Me: When Human!Thor was told about how arrogant and prejudiced he was as a God, he points out that he must have been difficult to work with and is clearly ashamed of how his past self acted.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Thor's life as a human has made Thor so much kinder and humble that he is almost unrecognizable in personality to Lenneth.
Voice: Shizuka Ito
- Dark Is Not Evil: His attacks are dark elemental but he cares for his friends and fights for Lenneth. Even his actions as an assassin were done with good, if poorly thought out, intentions.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Has this reaction after Lenneth scolds him for wasting his life, and he realizes that his death ended up emotionally hurting his friends.
- Tyke-Bomb: Works as an assassin while posing as a normal schoolboy.
Voice: Arthur Lounsbery (credited as Arthur Lansbury)
- Ascended Demon: Is made an Einherjar by Lenneth despite being a succubus.
Voice: Kouji Takahashi
- Playing with Fire: Specializes in fire magic.
- The Wise Prince: Compared to his hot-headed brother, Anelian is more pragmatic and intelligent.
- Never Mess with Granny: Don't let her old age fool you. She's still a deadly archer.
Voice: Masamichi Kitada
- Drowning My Sorrows: Initially seen drinking his life away in a bar, lamenting his misery, until Sennah comes along.
- No More for Me: After Sennah's death, Caradoc stops drinking and joins the Bulneria forces as a mercenary.
- You Shall Not Pass!: Pulls one of these in his story. Doubles as Last Stand.
Voice: Sachie Hirai
- Jerkass: She's incredibly nasty to anyone who's not her sister, including Lenneth.
- Leeroy Jenkins: Cloe's side story has her dive into monsters in a rush to get stronger and save her sister, endangering her and forcing Lenneth to rescue her.
- Not in This for Your Revolution: Only really chooses to join the Einherjar because she wants to save her sister from Hel.
- The Stoic: Doesn't particularly socialize with anyone other than her sister.
Voice: Hitomi Nabatame
- Dark Is Evil: She gives people false hope by offering to resurrect their loved ones for money, not telling them that the resurrection is temporary. She has no regrets doing this either.
- Freudian Excuse: She was resurrected by her father to give her a longer life, but the process was imperfect and now she relies on lighting magic incense to keep herself alive.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: Sports one of these early on in her story.
- The Lost Lenore: Roland is this to her, driving her to resurrect him if it meant she could see him again.
- Token Evil Teammate: She is only an Einherjar because Odin ordered Lenneth to recruit her. Not even other Einherjar trust her.
Voice: Miyuki Kobori
Class: Heavy Warrior
- Half-Human Hybrid: Born from a union between a berserker and a human.
Voice: Eve Yurianne
- Custom Uniform: One of her defining traits. It extends to the archery unit she was part of prior to her death.
- Starter Mon: The first Einherjar you acquire in the story. Doubles as the second tutorial section in the game.
- Blessed with Suck: Due to being half-Rhinemaiden, Kachina is cursed with an affliction that causes her hands to corrode anything she touches. It takes a pair of specially-made dwarf gloves to prevent the damage.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Born from the union of a human and a rhinemaiden.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Her reason for becoming an assassin was to become human through alchemy, even though she later realizes it's impossible.
- Mercy Kill: Kachina finally puts her powers to good use by killing a dragon's egg before it can hatch.
Voice: Tomoya Yano
Class: Heavy Warrior
- Apologetic Attacker: He continuously apologizes in his side story where he has to kill the remains of his soldiers from a crashed ship, who had all turned undead
- Cowardly Lion: He is incredibly afraid of combat, and that fear is the reason he wears full body armor. When he sees others in danger, he pushes that fear to the sidelines and saves anyone in danger.
- Humble Hero: Is quite humble about his own achievements.
- The Strategist: Is seen reading a strategy book in his story, and ultimately uses his keen tactics to save his ship from both a harsh storm and incoming enemy forces.
- Dumb Muscle: If Liu's side story is any indication, he's not the sharpest tool in the shed.
- Expy: Of Ancel from Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume. Both of them have the same hairstyle, color scheme, and weapon.
- No Sense of Direction: He's not particularly good with maps, to the point where when Liu, in her side story, attempts to read Kurt's treasure map for herself, she finds out they were heading in the exact opposite direction from the treasure.
Voice: Manami Numakura
- Becoming the Mask: Her experiences with her lookalike's parents make her much more selfless, and she outright calls them her family when she dies. This sentiment is returned by the parents, who still consider her their daughter even after her deception is discovered after her death
- Eyepatch of Power: Has one to denote her rough experience as a thief.
- Mistaken Identity: How Liu's personal story begins.
- Princess for a Day: Happens to Liu throughout her recruitment scenario, though she gives up the charade in the end.
Voice: Mariko Honda
- An Ice Person: Wields ice magic courtesy of her human father who was a sorcerer.
- Composite Character: To Shiho and Yumei from the original game. Lucia's singing is exploited by vikings to win bloody battles while her half-breed heritage causes others to shun her as an abomination.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Has human and mermaid heritage, the latter of which is the source of her powers.
- Our Mermaids Are Different: Can put people to sleep with her songs and heal them with her blood.
- Smart People Wear Glasses: Is currently one of two recruitable characters who wears spectacles, the other being Lezard.
Voice: Yuko Kaida
Class: Heavy Warrior
- A Day in the Limelight: Has an entire event story dedicated to her while also telling the ultimate fate of her loyal adviser.
- Dying Curse: Throws one to Shiloh, asking Lenneth to make her an Einherjar in exchange for fulfilling her final request.
- Loophole Abuse: Her side story entirely revolves around one: She kills the monsters that were about to go after her soldiers, but left alone the monsters who were going to attack the enemies, thereby assisting her soldiers while technically not getting directly involved.
- Off With Her Head!: Her final fate, complete with Human Head on the Wall.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Firmly believes in sharing her countrymen's burden by joining the front lines alongside them.
- Ship Tease: Has a bit of this with Maximillian in one of the event stories. It eventually ends with Malvina knowing that Maximillian will protect her without her asking, and Maximillian finally addressing Malvina by name rather than by "Your Highness".
- The Needs Of The Day: Decides to turn herself in so that the people in the castle may be let go from the Trachian army. However, see You Said You Would Let Them Go to reveal what happens next.
- You Said You Would Let Them Go: Has this reaction when Shiloh reveals to her that he slaughtered the inhabitants of the castle despite agreeing to let them go in exchange for her imprisonment.
- Death Is Dramatic: Averted. He simply dies from illness, but was such a good and dedicated father that Lenneth deems him worthy enough to be made an Einherjar.
- Good Parents: In life, his goal was to ensure he made Claire happy, whatever the cost may be. In fact, this is the main reason why Lenneth chooses him as one of her Einherjar
- Improbable Aiming Skills: He's quite the accurate shot, and uses this to earn money from villages to feed his daughter, Claire.
- Ship Tease: Has a bit of this with Malvina in one of the event stories. It eventually ends with Malvina knowing that Maximillian will protect her without her asking, and Maximillian finally addressing Malvina by name rather than by "Your Highness".
- Team Dad: How he often comes across when seen in events or side stories. Justified because it was his traits as a good father that made him an Einherjar in the first place despite not having actual combat experience.
- William Telling: Is eventually told to do this by a military recruiter late on in his story, with Claire as his target. Despite his skill, he refuses to take the shot and is consequently turned down.
- Fake King: Is an impressionist performer who got stuck impersonating an actual king.
- Creating Life: Can cause flowers to bloom at will.
- Our Homunculi Are Different: Unlike most homunculi, Ranvald was born with free will which made him a viable candidate for Lenneth to recruit.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: Suffers from this in one of his side stories.
Voice: Sakura Ayane
- The Ace: She's a prodigy in swordsmanship, learning multiple fighting styles (albeit ones that were not designed for a small girl like her) just by watching swordsmen do it a few times.
- Broken Ace: Despite being so talented in swordsmanship, she is haunted by the death of her family and her inability to stop their deaths.
- Morality Pet: Eventually serves as one to Caradoc. To say he does not take her death well would be a major understatement.
- Rape as Backstory: It's heavily implied that Sennah experienced this after a group of vikings raided her village and killed the rest of her family.
- Revenge Before Reason: Sennah comes across the vikings that murdered her family and decided to challenge them despite having only a few months of swordsmanship training at that point. This is also deconstructed as all this results with is Sennah ending up killed and Caradoc carrying the burden of her death for the rest of his life.
- The Fighting Narcissist: Is as strong as she is vain. The vanity is implied to be part of her act as she is shown to be far more down to earth when she is off-stage.
- Narcissist: Proudly considers herself more beautiful than Lenneth in her recruitment scene.
- Revenge: The reason she wanted to meet the merchant in her story was to kill him for betraying and murdering her father
- Old Soldier: Very famous among the younger Einherjar for his feats in life.
Voice: Ai Orikasa
Voice: Hitomi Nabatame
Voice: Akiko Yajima
- Pimped-Out Dress: Bridal Alicia exemplifies this trope best. Also counts as a Mythology Gag to that scene of the original Lenneth wearing a wedding dress.
Voice: Hiroki Tochi
Voice: Kenji Nomura
Voice: Takako Honda
Voice: Kae Araki
- Adaptational Badass: Frei becomes this as Anatomia turns her into a recruitable character.
Voice: Maria Kawamura
Voice: Atsuko Tanaka
Voice: Kae Araki
- Playing with Fire: Primarily uses fire spells like she did in the original game.
Voice: Yumi Touma
- Sacred Bow and Arrows: Uses these since her Anatomia counterpart uses a sword.
Voice: Atsuko Tanaka
Voice: Takehito Koyasu
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: His powered-up form does this.
Voice: Nozomu Sasaki
Voice: Wakana Yamazaki
Voice: Shuichi Ikeda
Voice: Yuichi Nakamura
- Tier-Induced Scrappy: Rufus has a decent set of character skills, but his first two attacks are weak, and his third attack's damage is only fully realized when fighting large units. This makes him fall behind most characters (including free characters) due to others being able to do damage more reliably.
Voice: Yuri Shiratori
Voice: Ayako Kawasumi
Voice: Akimitsu Takase
Voice: Satoshi Hino
- Good Costume Switch: His Einherjar form counts as this.
Voice: Hiroko Emori
- From Nobody to Nightmare: From the adopted son of a dwarf, to one of Lenneth's most dogged obstacles.
- Happily Adopted: Is comfortably living with his father, Regin until Lenneth comes along and unintentionally upends his life completely.
- Half-Human Hybrid: Supposedly a mixture of human and an as-of-yet unidentified race.
- Revenge: His entire reason for living after witnessing Lenneth kill his father.
- Stalker with a Crush: While well-meaning, Siegfried tends to come across as this to Lenneth. Averted, however, with Sigurd.
- Unwitting Pawn: Winds up as one for Gullveig, who uses him in an attempt to break Lenneth's spirit.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: His own son, Angelo serves as this to him. Sadly, this doesn't extend to his nephews.
- Jerkass Has a Point: For all of Shiloh's atrocities towards the people of Bulneria, he rightly calls out Malvina for not having the foresight to thwart his scheming.Shiloh: You don't know the first thing about ruling. A good king protects his kingdom from any possible danger, no matter how slight. Thanks to me, Trachia is safe.
