Michael K (Class: Photographer)

Voiced by: Clifford Chapin

Michael is the youngest party member, and a recent highschool graduate. He is an obsessive conspiracy theorist, and the co-creator of ONISM1999.

    Vella Wilde 

Vella Wilde (Class: Musical Prodigy)

Voiced by: Melanie Ehrlich

A gifted pianist from a young age, Vella was hailed as a prodigy of classical music. With time, her recognition faded, and so did her love for performing Beethoven, Bach, and Brahms.

She fights with sound, using her Keytar and amp. This instrument is the anthesis of her childhood.

  • Banishing Ritual: Her unique "Banish" skill removes an enemy from battle, placing them in Alex's Mind Dungeon to improve his stat bonuses. This is one of the only ways to defeat invincible Soul Survivors.
