This is list of characters in Grandia a long-running Eastern RPG series. Spoilers ahoy.

Grandia

Recruitable Characters:

Justin

File:Justin grandia 9444.jpg

 "What a cinch."

The main character of Grandia and a third-generation adventurer. Before his death, Justin' father left his son a treasured stone. Justin becomes convinced that the stone is a shard from the legendary Spirit Stone, which the Garyle Forces is seeking. While meddling in a high-security excavation, Justin stumbles onto a hologram of a woman beckoning him to Alent, a mythical city of the long-dead Angelou civilization. He uses swords, maces and axes in battle.

Sue and Puffy

File:Sue granda 8023.jpg

 "Pretty easy, right, Puffy?"

Sue is Justin's best friend from Old Parm. Orphaned as a baby, she lives with her aunt and uncle. She is always accompanied by Puffy, a gift from Justin's father who brought it from one of his adventures. Sue views herself as Justin's guardian, and resents being treated as a kid. Her weapons on choice are long-distance weapons (such as bows and boomerangs) and maces.

Feena

 "Ha, ha ha, pretty easy!"

An adventurer whom Justin and Sue meet during their trip to New Parm. Unlike Justin, she is very accomplished and something of a local celebrity. She is later revealed to be Lt. Leen's sister and an Icarian. Feena wields knives and whips.

Gadwin

 "You're no match for me."

The "Knight of Dight", Gadwin is a master swordsman who runs into our Heroes on the other side of "The End of the World". Gallant and courageous to a fault, he takes it upon himself to educate Justin in the ways of a knight.

Rapp

File:Rapp grandia 1287.jpg

 "Come back with reinforcements!"

A humanoid whom Justin and Feena meet once crossing the ocean. He is at first suspicious of them, but they quickly gain his trust. Rapp is extremely arrogant, but this attitude masks his troubled life as a orphan.

 "Take that, I'll kill ya!"

Milda

 "No problem. Whoo!"

Guido

Liete

Grandia II

Recruitable Characters:

Ryudo

File:Ryudo grandia 3236.jpg

 "These guys were no real challenge!"

Voiced by: Showtaro Morikubo (Japanese) and Cam Clarke (English)

The main character and a Geohound, a vagrant willing to do any job for gold, along with his partner Skye. Originally hired to escort Elena to Garmia Tower (a job outside of his normal duties), Ryudo stays on as her bodyguard during her pilgrimage to see the Pope.

  • All of the Other Reindeer: A pariah in his native Garlan, where he was scapegoated for massacred apparently caused by a Horns of Valmar-possessed Melfice and basically ran out of town.
    • The whole world (particularly followers of Granas) is openly prejudiced against Geohounds. It's never really explained why, save for the implication that Geohounds have the reputation of accepting all kinds of dirty work.
  • All a Part of the Job: Uses this to explain some of his actions a lot in the beginning. It frustrates Elena quite a bit.
  • Adventure Duo: With Skye.
  • Being Personal Isn't Professional
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Elena, right off the bat.
  • Berserk Button: Unapologetically acts like a total Jerkass to everyone, especially Elena. However, when the life of a little girl possessed by the Eyes of Valmar is threatened, he gets pissed. Especially when said girl's own mother begs him to "put her out of her misery".
    • To a lesser extent, there's religion and women. At the very least, they annoy the living crap out of him, and he tends to be extremely impatient regarding either one. He gets over this during the course of the game, though.
  • Book Dumb:

 St. Heim holy Text:"Does not the light of the sun shine even now? Does not the land await the return of its True God, May the light come quickly."

Ryudo: Does not Ryudo tire of this? Does not he want to put his fist through this book? May his suffering end quickly.

 Ryudo: (to Roan) You might want to start a bonfire, though. Going to be a lot of bodies when I'm done.

Skye

 Voiced by: Yukitoshi Hori (Japanese) and Paul Eiding (English)

A talking falcon who took it upon himself to accompany Ryudo three years ago. At 58 years old, Skye is ironically something of a paternal figure to the hotheaded Geohound. He knows more about Ryudo than anyone else in the group.

Elena

File:Elena grandia 5702.jpg

 "I pray that we shall be safe ahead."

Voiced by: Hiroko Konishi (Japanese) and Jennifer Hale (English)

A songstress of Granas, Elena is the sole survivor of a ceremony to reinforce the seal on the evil god Valmar in Garmia Tower. When the ceremony fails, Elena is infected by a Fragment of Valmar. Her only hope lies in journeying to St. Heim and meeting with Pope Zera. Her temperament and manners are the polar opposite of Ryudo's, and the duo form a uneasy alliance.

 Tio: Songstress? What is a songstress?

Ryudo: Someone who meddles in the affairs of others without considering the consequences.

Millenia

File:Millenia grandia 5152.jpg

 "This is boring."

Voiced by: Mai Hoshikawa (Japanese) and Jodi Benson (English)

A physical manifestation of the Wings of Valmar, which were mistakingly sealed inside Elena. Millenia also functions as the alternate personality of Elena -- wild, fun-loving and violent. She takes an instant liking to Ryudo and decides to help him, though her ultimate goal is to reassemble Valmar. In the beginning, Millenia secretly takes control over Elena's body whenever she is asleep or unconscious. Over time, Elena becomes aware of her alter-ego and a psychological tug-of-war ensues.

 Millenia: Kids today. So much energy. All of it used for evil.

 Ryudo: Huh. She has a fair hand with magic.

Millenia: And other "fair parts" besides.

Roan

File:Roan grandia 4015.jpg

 "Ah, that was a breeze."

Voiced by: Tomoko Ishimura (Japanese) and B. J. Ward (English)

A bright and well-mannered young boy who is journeying with a circus troupe. He chooses to join Ryudo's party after the latter helps him retrieve a treasured medal.

Mareg

File:Mareg grandia 4596.jpg

 Voiced by: Daisuke Gouri (Japanese) and Peter Lurie (English)

The biggest, fiercest, and most respected warrior of his clan. After his home was attacked by Melfice, Mareg set out from his island village to hunt him down. Though merciless toward his opponents, Mareg is soft-hearted and genial toward strangers.

 "Hey Granas, are you listening? If you really are a god, this is my first and final prayer. Take them [Ryudo, Roan, Elena and Tio] away. AWAY TO SAFETY!!!"

Tio

File:Tio granda 7751.jpg

 Voiced by: Junko Iwao (Japanese) and Kim Mai Guest (English)

An automaton from the time of the war between Granas and Valmar. Tio is programmed to serve the Army of Darkness, but with her master long dead, she finds that she cannot act without orders. Mareg, who is mistakingly designated as her new "Master", encourages Tio to serve her own ends and discover her feelings.

Other:

Melfice

File:Melfice grandia 5135.jpg

 Voiced by: Isshin Chiba (Japanese) and John Cygan (English)

The initial antagonist of the game. Once a promising swordsman, Melfice unexpectedly went mad and became a bloodthirsty killer. His only family is Ryudo, who believes him to be dead.

Selene

File:Selene granda 5847.jpg

 Voiced by: Misa Watanabe (Japanese) and Kim Mai Guest (English)

A High Priestess of Granas and the church's lead inquisitor. She is uncompromising in her efforts to stamp out heretics, and is notorious for burning down entire villages suspected of harboring evil. Selene is constantly accompanied by her Cathedral Knights, a ruthless brigade of soldiers who work for the church.

Pope Zera Innocentius

File:Zera grandia 5853.jpg

 Voiced by: Osamu Saka (Japanese) and Richard Doyle (English)

  • After-Action Villain Analysis: Subverted by Millenia, cutting off Elena's soliloquy to announce Zera is "just a FOOL!"
  • Beneath the Mask: He's very convincing in the role of a kind-hearted philanthropist. When he chides Selene for her overzealousness, you almost believe he's the sane one.
  • Beard of Evil
  • Big Bad
  • Big Good: Subverted
  • Blond Guys Are Evil
  • Dark Messiah: Foreshadowed by his popular nickname, "The Priest Who Will Save the World".
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: He goes absolutely bananas after spilling his plan to Elena.
  • Faith Heel Turn: To hear him tell it, Zera spent years staring up at Valmar's Moon from his cell at Granas Cathedral, alone in his knowledge that the church is a sham and there's no deity coming to save them all.
  • Fat Bastard: His character model has animated jowls.
  • A God Am I: This is Pope Zera's goal, to reunite Valmar and be reborn as Valmar's Will.
  • High Collar of Doom
  • Immortality Immorality: Opted to cash in his chips and sell out the whole world to Valmar, in a bid to merge with 'God' himself.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Admits to originally hiring Melfice to find the Granasaber first.
  • Misanthrope Supreme
  • Mole in Charge
  • Nice Hat: Well, naturally.
  • Omnicidal Maniac
  • Prophetic Name: "Innocentius"?? I think not.
  • Self Fulfilling Spoiler: Why even bother spoiler-tagging this guy's tropes?
  • Sinister Minister
  • Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum: Zera goes even further (if that's possible) off the deep end when you defeat Valmar's Core a second time. He decides that if the age of gods is over, then there's no need for man — and without any need for man, there is no need for the world.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: To General Baal from the first game. Both characters are introduced as benevolent (if ethically murky) father-figures, who promptly transform into Large Hams the moment their jig is up. Their ultimate goals are also pretty similar: Baal wants to merge with Gaia, essentially ascending to godhood; Zera wants to merge with Valmar, becoming the closest thing to "God" that exists in the world.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Elicits this from Elena following his defeat. (Millenia is less understanding.)
  • This Cannot Be!: See "Suicidal Cosmic Temper Tantrum."
  • Villainous BSOD: When Zera finds he cannot reconcile his supposed "godhood" with his ultimate defeat by the heroes, he spends his last moments quietly lamenting his flawed humanity.

 "Was it Valmar's Moon that led me to this cold, dead place? Or was it always...only...me?"

  • We Can Rule Together: Of all the people opposing Valmar's revival, Zera wasn't expecting any complaints from Millenia, of all people. He reminds Millenia that this is "unbecoming" behavior for a demon, especially since they're about to rule the world together. Her rejoinder is one for the ages.

 Millenia: I don't wanna!
