  Voiced By: Mai Aizawa (JP); Karen Strassman (EN) (Frontier)

 Lady Ann's daughter. She is rather shy around people, so she likes to surround herself with books from the library.

Rune Factory 2


The first protagonist of the second game. Like the first, he stumbles into a town with no memories and is given a farm to tend to.

Aaron and Aria

  Kyle's children. Depending on which gender you choose, the player can play as Aaron (the boy) or Aria (the girl) for the second half of the game.


  A elven girl returning from the original game. Is set to marry Jake if you don't marry her first.


  A slightly ditzy girl who is the first person Kyle meets in-game. She dreams of becoming a teacher. Likes Pink Turnips.


  A half-elf. He hates humans, and has a crush on Cecilia.

  • Character Development: Attempted. His hatred of people is more or less completely nonexistent by the second generation. Understandable if he winds up marrying a human. Apparently motiveless if otherwise.
    • Not exactly. He still thinks that elves are superior on the second generation, but the fact that he no longer hates people means that he's warmed up to the people around him.
  • Does Not Like People: Literally.
  • Fantastic Racism: He hates humans. Naturally, he hates you. Even more so if you decide to court Cecilia.
  • Half-Human Hybrid
  • Jerkass: Thankfully he gets better by the 2nd Generation.
  • Pointy Ears
  • White-Haired Pretty Boy


  A little girl who lives in the church with her older sister. She fixes Training Plans for your character to help him, and can "marry" your child.


  A traveling merchant who comes to town to sell her wares.


  A shy girl who constantly wears a hood and carries around her doll, Fern. If you pursue her, you help with her shyness issues.


  The son of the local doctor, Ray is a aspiring doctor as well. In the Second Chapter, he takes over the position.


  Sister of Ray and the resident fortune teller. Her mother disproves of her fun lifestyle, so they are constantly at feuds.


  A sweet and kind girl who works and owns the local bathhouse. If you marry her, you get free baths that restore your HP. Otherwise, you pay for them.


  The female heir to the De Saint Coquille fortune. Rosalind is kind and generous, though you may not see it at first. Her best friend is her maid, Cecilia.


  The mayor's son. Constantly indifferent towards everyone and everything, and appears to be close to Dorothy. Naturally, he's your rival if you go for Dorothy.


  The male heir to the De Saint Coquille fortune. He's kind and generous, but a bit proud for his own sake.

  • Camp Straight
  • Faux Action Guy: One of his errands involves getting a item for him from a monster to claim as his own.
  • Fridge Horror: If Herman is his father... what's Max going to grow up to look like?
  • Green Eyes
  • Official Couple: With Julia, although they don't seem to have a lot of scenes together.
  • Spoiled Sweet
  • Sexy Mentor: In the second Generation he flirts with Aaron/Aria depending on the Festival. This is somewhat averted seeing as how Aaron/Aria seems to be disturbed by his actions.


  The local weaponsmith. She's got a obsession with weaponry, and sends your character on monster hunting quests. This expands your variety of weapons in the second chapter, though it doesn't do much in the first chapter. Notable that her quests are replayable.

  • BFS: Has several in her house.
  • Bottle Fairy: Hinted at in one of Julia's errands. She apparently brought a sword with her into the bathhouse and was swinging it around, frightening the other patrons. When you return it, Tanya mentions that she may have had a few drinks that day...
  • Faux Action Girl: At the end of her training quests, it's revealed that she has never fought, and only makes weapons because she loves blacksmithing.
  • Hot Chick with a Sword
  • Hot Mom: Many people wish that she was a marriageable candidate.
  • Peek-a-Bangs
  • White Haired Pretty Girl


  The patriarch of the De Saint Coquille family. Very influential on the town, and holds most of the festivals and contests.

  • Big Eater: Will accept any gift "as long as it's food". This is not true, he only acknowledges Curry Rice as a gift on his birthday, and not all of his statements about food are true. However, he still has a large preference for food.
  • Expy: The required Gourmet.
  • Gonk
  • Ugly Guys Hot Daughter: He's the gonk.


  Mana's father. He owns and runs the general store. His worst fear is that someone will steal his daughter's heart.


  Dorothy and Cammy's father and pastor of the Alvarna Church. Bears a scar over his right eye from his warrior past. Drinking buddies with Natalie and Douglas.

  • Boisterous Bruiser: Especially when he's around Douglas.
  • Good Shepherd: Though a bit more unorthodox than the usual priest, judging from how he has no problem with drinking or seeing a bride get stolen from her groom at the altar.
  • Kick the Dog: A groom gets his bride stolen from him right at the altar. Gordon finds the whole thing hilarious and tells the groom to just laugh it off. "Real men roll with the punches!"
  • Retired Badass: So he claims, anyway.
  • The Rival: To Douglas.
  • Tetsu Inada


  The mayor of Alvarna. He handles all of your construction jobs, however, he makes you pay and get the wood. Has problems getting along with his son, Barrett.


 Jake's father and the local innkeeper.


  The local doctor. She has a difficult relationship with her daughter, Alicia, and Ray has to always break them up when they argue. Though she wants both of her children to go into the medical field, only Ray has interest in it.


  Cammy's friend and son of Tanya. He becomes a "marriageable candidate" in the second chapter.


  The daughter of Max and Julia (or Yue, if you married Julia), and a potential "marriageable candidate". Only appears in chapter 2.


  The son of Dorothy (or Yue) and Barrett, and another potential "marriageable candidate". Often mistaken for a girl, and annoyed by it. He is also hinted to be a aspiring chef.


  The son of Cecilia (or Yue) and Jake, and another potential "marriageable candidate". Though his parents are half-elf, half-human (or in Yue's case, fully human), Orland considers himself fully of elfen blood. Only appears in the second chapter.

Sera and Serena

  Twin sisters, and the daughters of Rosalind (or Yue) and Ray. Once again, another potential "marriageable candidate". Only appears in the second chapter.

Rune Factory Frontier

Sister Stella

  A nun who works at the Trampoli Church and offers to give Raguna shelter when he first arrives in town.


  A fellow farmer who sells a variety of crops. He's the most competitive character to date. If you give him turnip he'll be "so happy he'll cry".


  Voiced By: Yoshihiro Kanemitsu (JP)

  Owner of the grocery shop in the business district. Having been the only shop in town has made him complacent, so his store offers very few products and poor service.

  • Bishonen
  • Brown Eyes
  • Defeat Means Friendship: After Rosetta runs him out of business, he's hired to work at Materia.
  • Picky Eater: He hates vegetables so much that he'll try not to touch them when he has to pick up your shipments.
  • Unknown Rival: He considers Rosetta his enemy because her shop gets way more business than his own.
    • Not so much unknown, as he confronts her eventually.


  Voiced By: Yoshihiro Kanemitsu (JP); Blake Lewis (EN)

  A soft-spoken carpenter who lives just outside the town. He harbors a dark past.


  Voiced By: Orikasa Fumiko (JP); Wendee Lee (EN)

  A book lover who gets so wrapped up in her hobby that she sometimes forgets to do other things, such as eating and sleeping.

File:Rff-irises 6634.png

 Voiced By:

Blanche: Sakura Nogawa (JP); Michelle Ruff (EN)

Noire: Rina Satou (JP); Michelle Ruff (EN)

  A girl who lives in a tower on Whale Island. She has a twin sister, who is also named Iris. Gelwein names them as "Iris Blanche" and "Iris Noire" to tell them apart.

 Raguna: "That's a very cute chitter."

Iris Blanche: "That's... an apple..."

  • Official Couple: With Raguna. In Rune Factory Oceans, it's stated that their Rank 10 love event was completed, uniting the two of them into one being again. This is the only confirmed Rank 10 love event completed. You're still free to marry whichever heroine you want though.
  • One Steve Limit: Subverted and played straight, in an odd way. While there are two independent characters named Iris (they even split up on rare occasions), they are actually two manifestations of the same person. They remain two separate people until you clear the 10LP event and merge them back together.
  • Our Vampires Are Different
  • Single-Minded Twins: Not really twins, but the only difference between the two is that one will occaisonally mention a drawing and one will occaisonally use tarot cards. Otherwise all their dialogue is the same.
  • Skippable Boss: Noire, if Blanche likes you enough.
  • Talking to Herself: Only in the American localization, in which both are voiced by Michelle Ruff.
  • White-Haired Pretty Girl: Noire.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Both push grade A.


  An elven blacksmith. She's not as strong as a dwarf, but her attention to detail makes up for that.

File:Rff-annette 6481.png

  Voiced By: Kana Asumi (JP); Hynden Walch (EN)

 Anette: "Pull on me to make me grow taller!"

Raguna: "...You're kidding, right?"


  A loud, abrasive man who shows up in Trampoli at the beginning of Fall. Seems to harbor a grudge against Raguna.


  A mysterious scientist who once researched experimental uses of runes. Often speaks with Iris Blanche.


  Tabatha's sister who comes to stay in Trampoli temporarily. Has a tendency to say harsh things.

Rune Factory 3

Micah (JP: Mais)

  Voiced By: Ryoko Shiraishi (JP); Todd Haberkorn (EN)

  An odd young man who can transform into a Woolly by means of a Transformation Trinket. Like the other two games in the main series, he ends up in town with no memories and is given a farm to tend.

Shara (JP: Sia)

  Voiced By: Yukari Fukui (JP); Caitlin Glass (EN)

  The canon heroine, a girl who tends the flower shop with Wells and Monica.

  • Blue Eyes
  • Hair Decorations
  • Improbable Weapon User: Her weapon of choice is a watering can, and she calls it 'Mr. Sprinkles'.
  • Innocent Flower Girl: She wears flowers as part of her daily attire, and encourages you to plant them instead of vegetables.
  • Official Couple: She's the canon heroine.
    • Most annoying during the cinematic after you get engaged, which features Micah running past all the other girls into her arms. Considering two of them are about three to four times more popular than ALL the other heroines, you probably aren't marrying her.
    • Although, Shara is more popular than most of the other main girls of Rune Factory because, not only is her personality a lot less annoying than others's, the game is a lot less pushy about you marrying her, and OP 1 doesn't even include her.
  • The Medic: If you take her out adventuring, she mostly stands back and heals you.
  • Yukari Fukui


  The town mayor and Sia's grandfather. Dislikes monsters and thinks them all bloodthirsty creatures, even the cute ones.

  • Fantastic Racism: The biggest example in the series. He's not such a bad guy; it's just a blind spot he can't seem to get over.


  Sia's little sister. Gets angry and upset around strangers.

Gaius (JP: Gadzhi)

  The town blacksmith. Ostensibly a dwarf, although he looks more like an elf. Generally a friendly guy all around and nonplussed by anything.

  • All Love Is Unrequited: Has a crush on Evelyn but she only thinks of him as nothing more than a friend.
    • After you get married, she offers to wear the engagement ring he made her and walk around with him, which implies that there's hope.
  • Cannot Talk to Women: He get's really flustered around Evelyn.
  • Doing It for the Art: Sort of. He forges weapons because he enjoys it, not for the money. He even mentions that without Raven running the store he'd go bankrupt.
  • Eye Scream: Implied. He alludes to a mining accident that he lost his right eye in.
  • Forgets to Eat: Or sleep, or do anything else when he's working.
    • In one quest, Raven admits she makes sure they "run out" of ore when it's time for him to take a break.
  • Ho Yay: With Micah. Giving him a valuable ore prompts him to ask if there's "any hidden meaning to this", with Micah becoming visibly flustered.
    • Which is to say nothing about some of the times he openly teases Micah out of the blue.
  • The Illegible: He keeps a diary, but you won't be able to make out a word of it. If he's there when you try to read it, he'll admit that he can't either.
  • Our Dwarves Are All the Same: Utterly averted: he's a bishie-looking pointy-eared blunette with an eternally friendly demeanor.
  • The Tease: He seems to get a kick out of Micah's reactions.

Raven (JP: Toona)

  Voiced By: Emiri Katou (JP)

  Gaius's apprentice. Mostly silent and sour-faced, although she's hiding a secret.


  Runs the general store with her daughter, Karin. Often upset at the latter's laziness.

  • Hot Shounen Mom: Teases Micah once he's greatly befriended her, claiming that he's just her type. Hazel and Shinonome, while both very youthful and attractive in appearance, are not marriage candidates. Marjorie even lampshades this by asking which one of the two would be your type.
  • Sweet Tooth: Loves cake.
  • Tsundere: Type B. She doesn't like letting it show how much she actually cares about Karina, although she does refer to her as her "stupid" daughter.

Karina (JP: Karin)

  Voiced By: Shizuka Ito (JP)

  Hazel's daughter. Slacker who wants to leave the little town she's in and enter high society.

  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Hidden Depths: She dreams of going to the city. At one point she actually starts working in order to get enough money to go.
  • Informed Flaw / Hollywood Pudgy At the beach, she claims she ate too much last winter and laments that "swimsuits can't hide reality". For the record, this is Karin in her swimsuit.
  • Pettanko: In her normal clothes. Oddly averted when she's in her bathing suit.
  • Skirt Over Slacks: The official artwork has her wearing shorts underneath her skirt.
  • The Slacker: To the point where every word out of her mouth is accompanied by either a yawn or a sarcastic, tired remark.
    • And if you marry her, she will rarely even make a lunch for you--and if she does, expect something extremely unspectacular.
  • Secret Diary: You find an old one that goes "Dear Diary, I realized today it's too much trouble to keep writing in you, so I won't."
  • White-Haired Pretty Girl

Carmen (JP: Ion)

  Voiced By: Haruka Tomatsu (JP); Caitlin Glass (EN)

  A tomboy who loves fishing as much as her hat.

  • Abuse Is Okay When Its Female On Male: She hits Micah quite often, even when you're proposing to her.
  • Hollywood Pudgy One of her quests involves her asking what sorts of girls you like. One question is if you prefer plump or slender girls, and she's happiest if you say you like plump girls. She must be talking plump in the chest, because she's certainly not plump in the waist!
  • Incest Subtext: She's rather... attached to her brother. Their introduction scene has them going totally melodramatic about her going out to go fishing, complete with "My dear brother/my beloved sister"s, and both talk about having trouble finding a boy/girlfriend as good as their sibling.
  • Nice Hat
  • Tomboy
  • Tsundere: Type B.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair
  • Zettai Ryouiki


  Carmen's big brother. May be considered a jock. Highly protective of Carmen.

  • Estrogen Brigade Bait: He spends all his time in a frayed tanktop that barely covers his tanned and tattooed muscles.
  • Ho Yay: With the main character. Give him a gift he loves on his birthday and he'll ask if he can kiss you (though you do decline). Not to mention when he tells the main character to stare at him instead of the ladies during the Beach Festival.
    • The Beach Festival seems more like he's just trying to make sure you're not looking at the ladies, one of whom is his sister.
  • Incest Subtext: He's rather... attached to his sister. Their introduction scene has them going totally melodramatic about her going out to go fishing, complete with "My dear brother/my beloved sister"s, and both talk about having trouble finding a boy/girlfriend as good as their sibling.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits: Simply attempting to go foraging for materials with Carmen causes Carlos to fly into an insurmountable rage.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair

Shino (JP: Shinonome)

  Runs the local eastern-themed inn, where passing travellers stay. It was shortened to just 'Shino' in the English version. In a dialogue, she even mentions to just call her by 'Shino'.

 Shino: "Micah?"

Micah: "...Yes?"

Shino: "You're pretty cute now that I've gotten a good look at you."

    • Sadly, she isn't a marriage candidate. Neither is Hazel. Marjorie even lampshades this by asking which one of the two would be your type.
  • My Beloved Smother: After Pia tell her about how you showed her your "thing," she off-handedly mentions to Micah about her sharp, sharp swords. She ends up giving you a sword as agift, but you can't help but be afraid.
  • Mysterious Past: Multiple hints are dropped by her daughter and even herself that she used to do dangerous work in a previous job. She also knows an awful lot about weapons and training, and has a habit of trying to train any great fighter she lays eyes on.


  Voiced By: Ryoko Shintani (JP)

  Shino's daughter. Runs the curio store. Has a largely childlike personality, but is dead serious when it comes to money. Also a horrible cook.

  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: With Persia/Pia, and you can join in in one request.
  • Lethal Chef
  • Hime Cut
  • Odango: Seems to have them of the covered variety, though they may just be hair decs. They vanish in her swimsuit, replaced by a ponytail, but it's hard to see if she has one in her normal profile.
  • Wingding Eyes: Give her something valuable and a G symbol will appear in her eye.

Pia (JP: Persia)

  Voiced By: Aya Endo (JP)

  A happy-go-lucky mermaid who runs the baths in the inn. Has an odd fascination with squid.

  Persia/Pia: So you see, squids are evil. I will eat them. I will eat them ALL.

Daria (JP: Dahlia)

  Voiced By: Yui Horie (JP)

  An elf artist who stays in the forest just out of town. Highly passionate about her works.

Blaise (JP: Gluten)

  Proprietor of the local restaurant. Sells you recipe bread.

  • Hot Dad
  • Supreme Chef: He is the primary chef for the entire village. Even Sherman greatly approves of his cooking and asks for more when eating at the diner.
  • Noodle Incident: Marjorie, Wells and Daria will mention an incident where he had too much wine at a festival, and that's all that any of them will say on the subject. Marjorie and Wells will simply ask you to talk to Blaise about it and Daria begs you to stop asking her to go on. Obviously, he doesn't like being given wine.

Collette (JP: Chocolat)

  Voiced By: Eri Kitamura (JP)

  Gluten's daughter, who works as a waitress in her father's restaurant. Very childlike and innocent.


  Gluten's son and Chocolat's brother. Strongly dislikes vegetables.

Marian (JP: Marion)

  Voiced By: Ayumi Fujimura

  The local Cute Witch. Helps her grandmother run the magic hospital and formulates new medicines in her spare time.


  Marion's grandmother. Runs the magic hospital, which sells staves, magic books and medicine. This is also where you'll end up if you faint, even in a dungeon.

  • Racist Grandma: Averted; she admits to Kuruna that she used to hate the Univir, but once she gets to meet them, she has no prejudices.

Sherman (JP: Donchachos)

  The patriarch of the local branch of the De Saint Coquille family. Like his relatives in other parts, is a Big Eater. Unlike his relatives, he has a tendency to say the opposite of what he means.

  • Big Eater: Although Evelyn has put him on a diet.
  • Gonk: As usual for the De Saint Coquille families.


  Voiced By: Minori Chihara (JP)

  Donchachos' daughter. Like her father, she has the habit of saying the opposite of what she means.

Evelyn (JP: Elisa)

  Sherman's daughter and Sophia's elder sister. She's travelled the world and gained many ideas on fashion, some of which are a bit odd.

Kuruna (EN: Cururufa)

  One of the horned people, and the headswoman of the Monster Village. Dislikes humans and has a sweet tooth. Always accompanied by her pet fireball, Will.

Ondorous (JP: Ondolfa)

  One of the horned people. A powerful magician, he seeks Micah's help in bringing together the people of Siarensu and the Monster Village.

Zaid (JP: Zeze)

  Resident of the Monster Village. A young man with cat-like eyes and markings.

Rune Factory Tides of Destiny

Aden (JP: Azel)

  Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro (JP); Ted Sroka (EN)

  An outgoing, friendly individual and the male protagonist, he shares a somewhat playful relationship with Sonja, his childhood friend for whom he cares for deeply. Due to various circumstances, he is whisked away to another world at the beginning of the game and, as a result, must share his body with Sonja’s consciousness. Can be a bit head-strong and values the friendship of others.

Sonja (JP: Sonia)

  Voiced By: Ai Shimizu (JP); Jessica Straus (EN)

  A cheerful young woman with a bright personality, she is the female protagonist and is ultimately forced to cohabit Aden’s body as a result of losing her own, which, unsurprisingly, causes some complications. Nevertheless, her sunny disposition is rarely dampened, though she easily falls victim to jealousy. Deeply cares for Aden and has the ability to sing the Spirit Song.

  • Action Girl: Inevitable, what with her being a protagonist.
  • Childhood Marriage Promise: With Aden.
  • Color Coded For Your Convenience: Sonja? She's the one with pink hair.
  • Easy Amnesia: Subverted. It's been emphasized that Sonja, like Aden, does not have amnesia, marking her as one of the first protagonists in the series to not have such.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: It's repeatedly established that Sonja does all of the cooking in her and Aden's relationship, and she claims Aden is only bad at cooking because she always does it for him.
    • In an odd case of Gameplay and Story Integration, if you choose to play as Sonja after her and Aden's separation and didn't level Aden's cooking skill much, Sonja's cooking skill is automatically bumped up to 40.
  • First Girl Wins: Should the player have Aden marry her.
  • Fish Out of Temporal Water
  • Freaky Is Cute: Sonja thinks everything is cute. Even the creepy mantis-bug monsters you can tame.
  • Friendship Moment: As previously mentioned, has one early on in the game with Aden, and later on, after the final battle, when her childhood friend protects her as the two free-fall back to earth.
  • Grand Theft Me: Has her body stolen at the beginning of the game by the Masked Man, who then uses it to arrive at various ends.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Because of their current circumstances, Sonja will become increasingly more jealous as Aden develops his relationships with those of the opposite gender.
  • Green Eyes: Prominent in that they are rather unique amongst Fenith Island's population, and one of her more notable physical traits.
  • Hello, Insert Name Here: She can be renamed, too.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Like Aden, she has access to some rather odd choices of weapons, such as the previously mentioned giant fireworks.
  • Magic Music: Her Spirit Song has the ability to evoke certain happenings, allowing her to achieve tasks few others can.
  • Nice Hat: Or headband-thingy.
  • Official Couple: She and Aden; he, as well, starts off with LP instead of FP
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Again, relates to the "Color Coded" trope above in concerns to her and Aden.
  • Plucky Girl: Despite being forced to live in another's body as a virtual spirit for an unspecified amount of time, on top of being trapped in a world that's not her own, her naturally bright disposition is rarely dampened.
  • Rose-Haired Girl: Her pink hair is one of her most defining physical features.
  • Sharing a Body: What she must do with Aden. Of note, however, is Sonja's ability to take control of Aden somewhat, which allows her to accomplish tasks she otherwise would not be able to do, given the circumstances; others can also communicate with her, to some degree. Nevertheless, it still proves to be awkward for Sonja, of course, as she must comply with Aden's rules during various - and sometimes uncomfortable - situations.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Though she was universally called Sonia before her dub name was announced, Sonja is a valid way to interpret her original name.
  • Sweet Tooth: If you stand still long enough as Aden when she's still trapped in your body, she'll start babbling about wanting pie or pudding or tarts.
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: Should the player decide to have Aden become betrothed to any other possible marriageable candidate aside from her.
  • Victorious Childhood Friend: Should the player decide to have Aden become betrothed to Sonja.
  • You Could See Me?: Joe could see her when she was still trapped in Aden's body.


  Voiced By: Kikuko Inoue (JP); GK Bowles (EN)

  The oldest of the three main heroines, she treats her younger sisters, Odette and Violet, with a motherly attitude and has an overall calm disposition. While clumsy and a terrible cook, she is very skilled at the lute and so functions as Fenith Island’s bard during the evenings at the local inn, “Sisters,” which she helps run. Is one of several that can sing the Spirit Song.


  Voiced By: Masumi Asano (JP); Rachel Hirschfield (EN)

  The first person both Aden and Sonja meet upon arriving at Fenith Island, she helps the two become acquainted to their new surroundings and offers them housing neighboring the inn, “Sisters,” for which she acts as the chef. Has a scar under her right eye and on her upper right arm, and is the middle sister of the three main heroines. While friendly and a generally welcoming individual, she can exhibit some tsundere tendencies. Also acts as Fenith Island’s priestess, and can sing the Spirit Song. She is good friends with Sierra.

  • Gosh Dang It to Heck: "I'm here to save your bacon!"
  • Improbable Hairstyle: In a setting where the majority of folks have rather sane hair, Odette arguably stands out the most.
  • Magic Music: Like Sonja, her singing has the power to evoke certain happenings or events.

  • Tsundere: So much so that she even threatens to slice Aden in two should he, supposedly, attempt anything "unwholesome."

  Voiced By: Ryo Hirohashi (JP); Karen Strassman (EN)

  An outwardly cold Dark Elf who serves as the de Sainte-Coquilles' maid, she is good friends with Elektra, though is often frustrated by her constant menial working.

She reads in her spare time, and can be rather sensitive about her heritage in certain situations. Deeply cherishes the garden to which she tends.

  • Meganekko: She wears a pair of rather stylish rectangular glasses, though takes them off during certain situations.
  • Our Elves Are Different: Seems to be a part of a growing trend in the Rune Factory universe, though she doesn't necessarily mind her position in life.

While somewhat menacing, she also can be kind to others. Eventually lives at the church and becomes a friend to Kilt in particular.

  • Affably Evil: Even when plotting to take over the world, she's awfully friendly to both Aden and Sonja, especially. The three can strike up a nice, somewhat friendly conversation, for example, only to have Pandora easily turn their chat around into a dark and menacing exchange, then back to amiable banter again soon thereafter. She also proves relatively helpful later on in the game. Additionally, she seems to be on relatively good terms with Fenith Island's younger citizens, one of whom addresses her as "Devil-chan."
  • And I Must Scream: Was trapped under the ocean as a statue for at least 400 years, remaining aware of her surroundings the entire time with only fish to talk to. According to her, the fish were poor conversationalists.
  • Bowdlerise: Most of the references to her being a demon are replaced with Arch-Sorceress in the english version. Her father is referred to as a Fiend at least once though.

  • Evil Overlord With An F in Evil: Hard to say what she’s worst at, the “sorceress”, or the “evil” part.

  • Meaningful Name: Pandora is often associated with the Greek woman who, albeit accidentally, released evil upon the world.
  • Most Definitely Not a Villain
  • Older Than She Looks: Though she doesn't appear so, she is over four-hundred years old, due largely to the accidental petrifaction mentioned above, as well as her ensuing suspended animation. This is also supported by her antiquated style of speech.
  • Our Demons Are Different: While she can, at times, exhibit more stereotypical traits associated with her race, such as intolerance of holy objects, she has no issues dwelling within Fenith Island's church once she has been fully revived from her petrifaction. Furthermore, she's capable of being rather amiable and even helpful, as previously mentioned.
  • People Puppets: Actually becomes possessed by her own father several times, as he disapproves of her being in a relationship with Aden, as well as for other various reasons.
  • Pettanko: According to Quinn, Pandora is "just like her." She's not happy to hear that from her.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Technically, it's supposed to be "Pandra" - at least according to the pre-order material - but that's not nearly as cool.
  • Talking to Herself: She shares a voice actress with Quinn in the English dub, with whom she has regular interaction.
  • Unusual Ears: Has these, of course, which widen at the top and are slightly segmented by ridges, perhaps reinforcing her demonic background.
  • White-Haired Pretty Girl: Somewhat helps to subvert the stereotypes common to her race, and additionally exhibits Purple Eyes that arguably help to accentuate her pride and light arrogance.
  • World Domination: Dialogue reveals this is her ultimate goal, despite her initial denial. She then goes on to induct Aden and Sonja as her chief followers, discusses her strategical tactics with them, and recruits Quinn and Kelsey, two children, to her cause.
