Seeing as this is a game many are unfamiliar with, I'll start off with a small faq.
-Sigurd. Noble of Chalphy, loyal to the kingdom of Grandbell. Descended from Baldo. Madly in love with Diadora. Branded a traitor of his kingdom, along with all of his men.
-Noish. The red/green cavalier. Strong and sturdy, but fairly slow. Sigurd's second in command.
-Alec. The green/red cavalier. Buds with Noish, and a womanizer-the younger, the better.
-Azel. Noble of Verthomer, loyal to Grandbell. Half-brother to Alvis. A speedy fire mage with Fala blood, and a spine of spongecake.
-Lex. Noble of Dozel, and son of Langobolt, one of the conspirators against Sigurd. Dozel being another region of Grandbell. Elite (literally) axe guy, with Neir blood, and a knack for chopping.
-Cuan. Descended from Noba, and prince of Lenster. Wed to Ethrin, Sigurd's brother-in-law, and old friend of both Sigurd and Eltoshan. Lance knight of much goodness.
-Ethrin. Sigurd's sister, and Cuan's wife. A troubadour, who both fights with swords and heals, albeit doing both quite poorly (for now).
-Finn. Cuan's apprentice lance knight. So much better than Sigurd's apprentice, Oifaye, it's not even funny. It's pretty annoying how crappy Oifaye is.
-Edin. Noble of Jungby of Grandbell, and a priestess. Descended from Ullir, and sister of Bridgett.
-Deu. Smarmy chap with a sketchy past and a lecherous attitude. Fights with swords (very poorly), steals, and that's about it. Yet he still manages to be more useful than most of the other children in the tale. His special skill is Sun Hit, which drains HP on a successful attack when the skill activates, assuming he actually does some damage.
-Jamuka. Archer prince of Verdane, and traitor to his country. Well, I guess he's got a decent enough reason, with all those cultists running around. Notable for being apparently the only person in the world not fooled by the shadiest looking organization on the continent.
-Diadora. From a village in the forest of Verdane whose inhabitants are sworn to remain chaste. Has Narga blood, and some mysterious
blood denoted by a big black circle. Daughter of Cigyun, wife of Sigurd (and Alvis, too!).
-Ayra. Princess-ish lady from Isaac, with Odo blood. Super awesome sword lady. Guardian of stupid stupid Shanan, who is the next in line to the Isaac throne.
-Holin, another sword user from Isaac, with Odo blood. Despite this, I don't believe he's a member of a noble house. Even if he had once been, he discarded that life for the arena, and the riches it held. Currently pursuing experience points in Sigurd's gang.
-Levin. Prince in line for the throne of Silesia, and descendant of Holsety, the wind god. Has kind of made up (not out, surprisingly) with his mother, which led to his possession of the Holsety tome.
-Fury. Pegasus knight from Silesia, tasked with finding Levin. Currently acting as his bodyguard of sorts, while not traversing mountains and bodies of water trying to save distant villages from bandits. Sister to Silesia's #1 pegasus knight, Mahnya.
-Lachesis. Princess of Nodion, in Agustria. Sister of Eltoshan, though currently taking up shack with Sigurd, who's not half as manly as dear sweet brother. Currently completely awesome, being able to use basically every weapon in the game that isn't holy or dark. Has Hezul blood, but no Mistletain...
-Former mercenary, and apparently an old friend of Eltoshan's. He turned tail from his former employer for 10,000 Gold. Luckily, none of the enemies in the game have that much money, so his allegiance will be unwavering.
-Sylvia. A dancer Levin came across on his journeys as a bard. Looks 14, skimpy outfit, girly parts, the works.
-Mideel. Edin's bodyguard. Looks even more girlish in this picture than usual. That's...really all there is.
-Bridgett. Edin's sister, missing for several years. Was found and raised as a girl by the Orgahill Pirates. Heir to Ullir's holy bow, the Ichival.
-Claud. A priest with a taste for faith and young girls. The heir of the Blagi bloodline. One of two prepromotes in the game who are pretty terrible.
-Tiltyu. Thunder mage daughter of Reptor. But he's a big jerkface, so she don't listen to him. Has Tordo blood.
Selis-Sigurd's boy, who holds a claim to the Grandbellian throne thanks to Diadora. Fights to stop Alvis and Yurius and their baby slaughtering ways.
Oifaye-Sigurd's squire whose attempts to hide his lack of awesomeness with facial hair aren't quite enough. Raised Selis and his starting entourage, and hid them from the empire. This game's Jeigan! Not as bad as Claud by any means, but outclassed by basically everyone else.
Lakche-Ayra's daughter, and inheritor of the ability to slaughter the populations of entire continents with little effort.
Sukasha-Lakche's oft-forgotten brother. He's pretty awesome, but still manages to pale in comparison to his godly sister. It's not his fault, she's just that good (it is totally his fault for being a big fat failure).
Rana-Edin's daughter. She's basically just like her mother except with puffy orange hair.
Lester-Rana's brother, and the game's mounted archer who isn't a girlish green-haired waste.
Delmudd-The last member of Selis's starting gang of children. Lachesis's son...but who
is the father? He has Beowulf's stat growths and weapons, but that doesn't quite convince me.
Yuria-Diadora's daughter with Alvis. Narga blood...might be mildly important at some point. She turns out to be a much better unit than her mom, in that she doesn't run the risk of dying by merely seeing an enemy unit.
Johalva-Dannan's son, Lex's nephew. He's the unmounted axe-using brother, with a crush on Lakche the size of a good-sized pond with a hero axe in it.
Johan-Carbon copy of Johalva, except with a horse. Also dead. No brotherly harem for Lakche : (
Fee-Fury's daughter, who joined Selis because of the tales dear mommy told her of Sigurd's heroism. Selis might be a little more girly than his old man, but his critical hits more than make up for it, so his heroism rating does not disappoint her.
Arthur-Tiltyu's son, who set out to look for his sister and mother who were kidnapped by uncle-ish Blume. Rides pretty close with Fee on that flying horse...
Shannan-The mentor of Selis's gang. Prince of Isaac, roughly as awesome as Ayra because he uses the Odo holy sword, Balmunk. Known for his Magikarp-like evolutionary cycle.
Patty-Bridgett's daughter, with the standard carefree, smarmy thief attitude. But she adds some girly-girlishness to the mix. Turns out she's only into the thieving to help out orphaned children. It's like Robin Hood with more girly parts and a better hat.
Leaf-Cuan and Ethrin's boy, inheritor to the Lenster throne, but not its awesome spear. Instead, he leads a failed revolution, and ends up getting saved by Selis and company. He's the second generation's Lachesis, who starts off as a crappy Prince and promotes to a master knight capable of using about every weapon in the game. Not quite Shannan level progress, but still a big step.
Nanna-Lachesis's daught and Delmudd's sister, who got roped into Leaf's diabolical scheme of failure. Troubadour with the healing and swords and being pretty weak most of the time.
Finn Jr.-Finn's illegitimate son he had with Lachesis and an alternate reality version of himself seven thousand years ago. He plays the loyal knight to Leaf as he did to Cuan. And he loses his hero lance. It makes no sense.
Ales-Eltoshan's boy. Supposedly with his wife, and not
with Lachesis. He is Eltoshan, but he has longer hair and fights on your side. Misteltainn is pretty nice when it's not threatening to kill allies in one hit.
Lynn-Ales's sweetheart, whose ability to attract the desires of disgusting old men leads to the series of events that result in Ales's alliance with Selis. Inherited her taste for skimpy clothing and dancing abilities from Sylvia.
Tinny-Arthur's long lost sister, victim of many attrocities at the hand of Blume. But she's talked into betrayal by Arthur, and eventually grows to love the murder of family members that I force upon her.
Faval-Patty's brother, and inheritor of mom's Ichival. He's also Patty's partner in harboring a menacing army of cute little orphans, probably in a church.
Sety-Fee's brother, who went off looking for their father, who's a real jerk, or something. He ended up playing savior to the suffering masses.
Althena-Leaf's sister, and inheritor of Cuan's cool spear. Raised by Trabant for her usefulness in combat, but she's got her own questions about him. Huge crush on Arion, who she had believed to be her brother.
-Hannibal-Rugged old manly-man of Thracia's army. He was the country's greatest general, which likely explains why Thracia was doomed to succumb to Selis's invasion. Still a solid improvement over Adan.
Corpl-He...worthless. Sylvia's son. Tries to counterbalance his sister's revealing girlish attire by wearing less revealing girlish attire.
-Eltoshan. Count-type guy of Nodion, devoutly loyal to Agustria and its current ruler, Shagall. Descended from Hezul, and wields the holy blade Mistletainn. Brother to Lachesis, and friends to Sigurd and Cuan, but his loyalty to his country comes first.
-Alvis. Azel's half-brother, and son of Cigyun and the former count of Verthomer. Loooooptuous!!! Inceeeeest!
-Byron. Sigurd's pop. He's surprisingly intimidating for being an old fart. Once in possession of the holy sword, Tierfing.
-Gandolf. Prince of Verdane, brother of Jamuka, and the man who essentially started off this entire chain of events with his abduction of Edin. If only Mideel could have protected that castle...
-Sandima. His hobbies include drawing ponies and baking cakes.
-Shagall. Current ruler of Agustria, after having assassinated his father. Also really likes ponies.
Aida-Alvis's lead general. That's...about it.
Reptor-One of the nobles who plotted against Byron and Sigurd. Has Tordo blood, and wields the Thor Hammer. Tiltyu's father, but doesn't exactly treat her well.
Langobolt. The other plotter, and Lex's father. Has Neir blood and uses the holy axe Swanchika. Doesn't give this axe to Lex...Lex hates him, and so do I.
Manfroy-Leader of the Loptuous sect. Pulls the strings behind the events leading to Alvis's rise to power. Magically able to hide his shadiness to stupid people.
Dannan-Langobolt's son, and brother to the late Lex. Was given control over Isaac, and attempted to carry out pretty bastardly orders.
Blume-Reptor's son, who inherited his father's Thor Hammer and gained control over the Manster region of the Thracian peninsula, but failed to carry on his monocled ways. Treated Tiltyu and her daughter about as horribly as his father had.
Ishtor-Blume's son, who died along with his sweetheart Liza in Selis's campaign.
Ishtar-Blume's capable daughter, who gained possession of the Thor Hammer, and was saved and is currently accompanied by her love, the imperial prince Yurius.
Trabant-King of Thracia, and Cuan's old foe, whose attempts to conquer Manster were delayed by the empire's occupation. Begins the campaign anew once Selis breaks the order in the area. Descendant of Dain, and former wielder of the holy lance Gungnir.
Arion-Trabant's son, and adoptive brother of Althena. Current wielder of Gungnir, and overall upstanding chap.
Loptuous!!! Also known as Yurius, imperial prince of Grandbell, he's the product of Alvis's delightful incestuous dabblings. Murderer of babies and old men alike. Perhaps in a different time, a different game, he could be my favorite main character ever...
