Protagonists

Revya

File:Soulnomad-Revyafemale 5691.jpg

The Silent Protagonist of our story. Gender and name are determined by you (though she appears in Disgaea 3 Absence of Justice as a female and the default name is Revya). Depending on the path taken, is either really nice, or evil incarnate. Is actually a World Eater (no, not that one).


 Revya (In response to Levin sniffing out an enemy): Woof, Woof, doggy.

Revya (When Danette suggests hotpods will fall from the sky): That’s a pretty stupid thing to say.

Gig/Vigilance

Voiced by: Akira Sasanuma (JP), Yuri Lowenthal (EN)

File:Soulcradle19Gig 681.jpg

A fallen god sealed inside the Onyx Blade. A Master of Death. Omnicidal, sociopathic, and awesomely evil. Was not originally like this. He was originally the benevolent Vigilance, but after Median killed him he was reborn by Drazil as the Omnicidal Maniac we all know and love. Hilarity Ensues.


  • Almighty Janitor: Gig is a Master of Death, technically a subordinate to the World Rulers and equal to a Master of Life. He is more powerful than either, killing both Drazil, Gamma and Joules combined in a Single-Stroke Battle in the normal ending. In the Demon Path, Revya uses Gig's full power to kill Drazil and Haephnes, and neither of them are able to stop him/her.
  • Badass: Anyone who can give Zetta a run for his money in power and trash-talking has earned this.
  • Bad Boss: Thuris and Raksha both mention that when they were rampaging through Haephness that Gig was very abusive towards them, hence part of why they want him dead.
  • Big Eater: The Vitali ending says that he stayed a restaurant that served hotpods for three days and ate its entire stock.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy
  • Came Back Wrong
  • Chewing the Scenery: Gig does this a lot in the flashbacks.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Gig does not have the cleanest mouth around.
  • Consummate Liar: Although he does drop hints when he's lying, no one picks up on it. It helps that the target of most of his lies is Danette.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Deal with the Devil: Tries this with Revya.
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: As Vigilance.
  • Evil Is Dumb: In a rather literal sense, he's not be bright when evil and tends to act more competent when turning good.
  • Fallen Hero: Was tossed down rather than fell.
  • The Grim Reaper: Gig is a 'master of death' — a being who should technically do the standard duties of the grim reaper.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath
  • Hey, You: He rarely ever calls anyone by their given name, but if he does have to call them by something, it's usually very insulting ('Stupid Cow' for Danette and 'Sister Loving Man Cow' for Levin). The only exception is Revya, who he calls 'Kid' or 'Soulmate' if he's being nice.
    • Well really nobody refers to Revya by name
  • Idiot Ball: In the Normal Path he frequently tries to convinces Reyva to give him control and just as many times says he'll destroy the world if he gets control, so not surprisingly Revya always refuses.
  • The Imp
  • Jerkass -> Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • The Lancer: Personality-wise, at least. Gig is verbose where Revya is mostly silent, sadistic and selfish where Revya is kind and selfless, cynical and sarcastic where Revya is naive and honest, and very fond of playing shoulder devil to his 'soulmate'.
  • Laughably Evil: Easily the funniest character in the game.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: when Gig was revived by Drazil, all of his memories as Vigilance were creased, though over the course of the game he gradually regains them.
  • Love to Hate
  • Large Ham
  • My God, What Have I Done?: During the Good Ending of the Demon Path, Gig snaps back to his senses as Vigilance and despairs over the crimes he committed as Gig, vowing to set things right and atone.
    • Hoist by His Own Petard: In the other ending, Gig quite abruptly regrets giving Revya so much power when Revya uses it all to devour him.
  • Omnicidal Maniac
  • Redemption Equals Death: Sacrifices himself to defeat Drazil and his Masters of Life and Death, however...
  • Sinister Scythe
  • Superlative Dubbing: The American dub for Gig is widely considered to be superior to the Japanese version.
  • Theme Music Power-Up: "BAD BOYS" plays = Gig will be sarcastic. "Desperado" plays = Gig will own someone. "Rockin' Rocks" plays = Gig will destroy someone.
  • Token Evil Teammate
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Hotpods
  • White-Haired Pretty Boy
  • You Will Be Spared: Hotpods

Danette

Voiced by: Chiwa Saitou (JP), Amanda Winn-Lee (EN)

File:SoulcradleDanette 7865.jpg

Female Sepp who grew up with Revya. Fights with twin daggers. Nicknamed Stupid Cow by Gig.


Haephnes

A mysterious woman who appears in the player's dream from time to time. She's actually the God of the world where the game takes place. And is more or less the adopted mom of Revya.


Lady Layna AKA Virtuous

Voiced by: Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (EN)

File:LaynaVirtuous-Capture 6663.jpg

An elderly lady who was once a warrior queen who plays the role Revya and Danette's mentor and caretaker.

In truth, she's Virtuous, Master of Life. She and Layna were once merged in a manner similar to Revya and Gig, but Gig killed their shared body once, and Layna's soul passed into the cycle of Rebirth, leaving Virtuous alone in her body. She is a World Ruler. Also a master manipulator.

Levin AKA Raksha

Voiced by: Tatsuhisa Suzuki (JP), Liam O'Brien (EN)

File:Soulcradle24Levin 1179.jpg

A Sepp and one of Christophe's guards, who cares a lot about his sister Euphoria. He's a ridiculously fast runner and strong, though a little dimwitted and reckless. Not. He's actually Raksha, one of the three World Eaters who was once under Gig's command. He crushed the soul of the original Levin when he was young and used his body to carry out his Evil Plan


Vitali

Voiced by: Derek Stephen Prince (EN)

A friend of Levin's and a cleric, Vitali is also one of Christophe's guards. A highly skilled chef.


Juno

File:Juno-Capture 9698.jpg

A Nereid that joins the party. Very protective of her adopted son Penn.


Endorph/Walnut

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (JP), Troy Baker (EN)

File:Soulnomad-endorph 5717.jpg

A mysterious man who usurped leadership of a band of thieves and turned them into a Robin Hood-esque band of rogues. He's actually Walnut from Phantom Brave, who was sent to Prodesto after he dragged Sulphur through the dimensional gate at the end of the game.


Grunzford

File:Soulcradle25Grunzford 2385.jpg

A Redflank who used to live in the same village as Revya. Left in protest against fusing Gig to a human. A grumpy old man who likes to complain about Sepps.


Dio/Odie

File:Odie-Capture 8967.jpg

A Draconsage, Dio is supposedly a great mage traveling with the legendary warrior Gestahl but proves to be an incompetent klutz when facing off against Revya's group. Eventually it's discovered that his real name is Odie (and the "Gestahl" accompanying him is a hotpod farmer named Vangogh) and Dio is his much more powerful brother. He soon befriends Revya's group


Tricia

Voiced by: Mai Nakahara (JP), Wendee Lee (EN)

File:Soulcradle49Tricia 9319.jpg

Idealistic but naive noble woman who adventures to help people. Grunzford acts as a mentor to her. She prefers to be called Trish.


Pinot and Agrippa

Two angels that have known Odie for some time.


Layna

File:Layna-Capture 9481.jpg

Daughter of Median the Conquer. Like Revya, she is a World Eater. Saved the world from Gig with assistance from Virtuous. The last party member to join during the Normal Path.



Lujei Piche

An unexpected unlockable character, Lujei escaped her world and starts exploring others, screwing them up in the process. It appears she has a connection to Endorph...


  • Back From the Dead
  • Berserk Button: Being reminded of her death by poisoning sent her into a psychotic fit of rage.
  • Boobs of Steel: More of the Glass Cannon type. She can throw down some powerful magic. Also, she's quite stacked, giving Shauna and Alexemia a run for their money.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Hoo-boy, she's such a nut case that even Gig is freaked out by her.
  • Flanderlization: YMMV on this.
  • Glass Cannon: Has the best INT attacks out of your playable characters. Can't take a hit worth a dime.
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: Her Special Attack.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Just ask Mevy, the talking skull of her dead lover that she carries around on her staff.
  • Power Floats
  • Shout-Out: All of her movesets? They're all of the Arcane Summons from Grim Grimoire. Which goes into Irony levels due to the fact that her student learned Necromancy from her. That could mean Lujei had some skills when she was alive.
  • Spanner in the Works: Specifically, she's the one who sent Sulfur back to the world of Phantom Brave as a Bonus Boss, rendering the sacrifices involved pointless. Endorph was not happy to hear this.
  • Stable Time Loop: During the flashback where Median kills Vilgilance, if you answer "You must've been pissed" you find out that Lujei sends you back in time to fight Median. If you win, you find out that thanks to this, Virtuous finds out a way to fuse souls, thus making the plan of fusing Gig's and Revya's soul possible. Which also gave Drazil two souls for the last two World Eaters, Thuris and Raksha. So in short... Lujei helped SAVE the world! ...And gave Drazil the two souls he needed to create the last two death machines... But hey, it's Lujei.
  • A Wizard Did It: She IS the Wizard.
  • Yandere

Christophe

File:Christophe-Capture 9004.jpg

A businessman the party runs into early in the game. A pretty nice, if pragmatic, guy.


  • Big Damn Heroes: The guy comes in with a small army to help Revya during their fight against Feinne the second time.
  • Demoted to Extra: He gets only one scene in the Demon Path, after that, you never hear from him again.
  • Good Smoking: Smokes a pipe.
  • Heroic BSOD Has a minor one after Cuthbert kills himself out of guilt. He picks himself together quickly, though.
  • My Greatest Failure: It's suggested that he betrayed his best friend Lobo when they were younger, thus causing the latter to become evil.
  • Non-Action Guy: Doesn't directly fight himself, but supplies soldiers for Revya.
  • Self-Made Man: Is successful due to his honest work ethic.

Galahad

Voiced by: Derek Stephen Prince (EN)

File:Galahad-Capture 9539.jpg

Chevalier of the forces of Raide, Galahad begins as a minor cowardly threat, but he improves greatly by the end of the events concerning World Eater Feinne.


  • Break the Haughty: In the Demon Path, big time.
  • Character Development
  • Envy/The Starscream: Towards Thorndyke. He starts taking a level in badass after realizing Thorndyke was a really noble guy who was unfairly executed. In the Demon Path, however, when Thorndyke is forced to join Revya, he ridicules him.
  • Evil Is Dumb
  • Heel Face Turn
  • Out of Focus: In the Normal path, after showing remarkable growth up to the fight with Feinne, he quite suddenly drops out of the storyline at about the same time as Juno.
    • Justified; he was elected to help rebuild Raide after Feinne lazered it to the ground.
  • Sanity Slippage: Galahad becomes the only real source of humor in the Demon Path because of the spectacular way he loses it.
  • Redemption Promotion: Becomes the Prime Minister of New Raide.
  • Took a Level In Badass: To a certain extent, he's considerably more courageous just before the fight with Feinne.
  • Warmup Boss: The first real foe the player faces, Galahad still isn't much of a threat.

Alexemia

Queen of the Nereids. Though she can't walk on land, she has Juno be her eyes and ears for her in the outside world.


  • Cast From HP: She has a miraculous healing power, but it uses up a bit of her life force.
  • Demoted to Extra: Only gets one scene in the Demon Path, sadly.
  • Healing Hands
  • Her Heart Will Go On: Admits that she was in love with someone in the Demon Path(Normal Path hinted that her lover was one of the kings of Raide). It's implied that she wishes to see him.
  • Karen Strassman
  • Ms. Fanservice: Alexemia is practically naked, for Haephnes sake! She's only wearing a crown and a freakin' seashell bra.
  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Averted, somewhat. She's more of the standard mermain since she can't last on land too much, and she has the fish lower half.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure
  • Seashell Bra: Takes it a step further; Alexemia has Seashell nipple-covers
  • Team Mom: For the Nereids. This trope is more literal than usual cases becasue it's implied that she IS all of the Nereids' mother.

Penn/Richard

File:Penn-Capture 1262.jpg

A human child adopted by the Nereid as part of their plan to repopulate the race.



Antagonists

Feinne AKA Resilience

The first of the titular World Eaters encountered. Gig says she's his favorite World Eater, as she is the most powerful of the three and the most obedient. She has little will of her own, and stood silently for centuries following Gig's defeat, only attacking in self-defence. She is actually Resilience, one of the Haephnes gods who committed suicide in order to be reborn among the humans. Drazil warped her into the form of Feinne instead.


  • Came Back Wrong: Like Gig.
  • Curb Stomp Battle: Battles against her are always this in the Normal Path, either in your favor or hers. The Demon Path often has you and her on even footing.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: Feinne is too powerful to defeat without tapping into Gig's power, and Gig's power comes with a heavy cost. If you do defeat her when you're not supposed to, you end up fighting Asagi.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: She does self terminate as Resilience, and the results weren't pretty for her, so it's perhaps understandable she requests others do the job for her as Feinne. She requests this of both Gig and Raksha in the Normal and Demon Path respectively.
  • The Unfought: Borderline in the Normal path; you're either hopelessly outclassed or she is, so there's not much chance to ever have a real fight with her.
  • Wave Motion Gun: Her normal form of offense.

Thuris

File:Thuris-Capture 3970.jpg

The second World Eater encountered, Thuris by far is the weakest of the three, focusing more on scheming than direct shows of power. He has the misfortune of being one of the first enemies encountered in either path, and as such, often falls prey to the Sorting Algorithm of Evil.


  • Big Bad Wannabe
  • The Chessmaster: Subverted; he's supposed to be one, but the problem for him is Soul Nomad is a Gambit Pileup from the word go, and he's got at least four other chessmasters he's competing against.
  • Complete Monster: Let's start with brainwashing tons of people into a laughing mad cult and work our way from there.
  • Fate Worse Than Death: He's resurrected by the Drazillian Masters of Life and Death just to be consumed by them near the end of the game, though this could be considered Kick the Son of a Bitch instead. They try to do the same to Feinne, but Revya and Gig intervene and Mercy Kill her.
  • A God Am I: Since normal people can't see him, he's managed to create a massive cult known as the Thurists.
  • Guide Dang It: Thuris is the first World Eater type enemy you get into a real battle with, and can be a tricky foe until you figure out the easiest way to take them down. The trick is, they can't move, so stay out of his range until everything else on the field is dead and then muster your forces and power yourself up outside his range, then move in for the kill. Unlike other enemies, World Eater types cannot counter attack, so you can beat on him with impunity during your turns.
  • Hearing Voices: Normal people can't see him, so he's managed to convince hundreds that he's a god with a disembodied voice.
  • Informed Ability: The World Eater who is supposed to be the best schemer of the three winds up Out-Gambitted by every other chessmaster in the story.
  • Laughing Mad: In the Normal Path. So much that it even rivals the The Joker's and actually frightens Gig. Story-wise, it's averted in the Demon Route.
  • Out-Gambitted: See above.
  • Plaguemaster: The creator of Scarlet Iago, the deadly disease ravaging the land.
  • Smug Snake
  • Superlative Dubbing: Whoever dubbed him just nails the perfect sort of insane Smug Snake voice a character like Thuris needs.
  • Taking You with Me: When he's utterly beaten, Thuris self-destructs to spread a cloud of pure Scarlet Iago upon the party to try to kill them too.
  • Villain Forgot to Level Grind: He actually is a certifiable threat the first time you see him, but the second encounter is when he gets seriously Out-Gambitted, and since you've already worked out how to beat him the first time, the rematch is much simpler.

Raksha

File:Raksha-Capture 3102.jpg

The third world eater encountered, Raksha is, like Feinne, inactive initially, but this is due to being sealed in a cursed forest by the Dio family for generations. In truth, Raksha simply left his hollow shell of a body behind in the forest when he moved his soul into Levin's body instead.


  • The Brute: The strongest physically of the World Eaters, but not big on brain power. Well, not quite; he's become one of Soul Nomad's many chessmasters since Gig was sealed.
  • The Chessmaster: he spends most of the game disguised as Levin to in a plan to kill anybody he considers a threat to his Evil Plan (the full details of which aren't stated), consisting of Thuris, Fienne, Layna, and Gig. Succeeds in his plan to kill Layna by having Dio trap everyone in a seal so she would come to release them so he could get the jump on her after killing the other two World Eaters.
  • Climax Boss: Even knowing how to fight World Eaters from fighting Thuris twice, and with the members of the Hidden Village on your side, Raksha is still no slouch; defeating him really comes down to taking him down before he can smash all your characters into paste.
  • Dark Reprise: His battle theme is a remix of Levin's theme.
  • Demonic Possession: Done to Levin.
  • Kill It with Fire: His attacks consist of breathing fire and growing pair of Wolverine Claws made of fire attacking with them.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: He talks normally, but Gig noted that he's learned 'many big angry words'. Raksha said that he's feeling verbose.
  • Took a Level In Dumbass: Reversed. If Gig's reactions are anything to imply, Raksha's taken a level in genius instead.
  • Wolverine Claws: Made of fire.

Kanan

File:Soulcradle44Kanan 6017.jpg

The leader of the Thurists, the cult that worships Thuris as a god.


Thorndyke

Voiced by: Dave Wittenberg (EN)

File:Thorndyke-Capture 3654.jpg

Commander of the Knights of Raide. Is a very noble, honorable, but misguided man trying to prevent the group from making things worse with Feinne.


Lobo

File:Lobo-Capture 5908.jpg

Male Sepp who is the leader of the Yesterwind, a Black Market organization that kidnaps and smuggles children.


  • Complete Monster: As mentioned above, his organization kidnaps children and smuggles them. It's through him that some of the more horrible things in the game exists. Hawthorne got his "daughters" from him. Raksha also got Levin and Euphoria from him.
  • Dirty Coward

 Lobo: (Holding Christophe at knifepoint) Hahaha! 'No fair' is my favorite kind.

Cuthbert

File:Cuthbert-Capture 3655.jpg

Christophe's younger brother. His initial appearances are few, but it eventually becomes clear he's working with both Lobo and Shauna, and the party is forced to fight him at the Yesterwind stronghold. He kills Lobo to keep Christophe's hands clean, and the commits suicide out of guilt for his own misdeeds.


Shauna

Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi (JP), Karen Strassman (EN)

File:Shauna-Capture 7148.jpg

A bandit who unlike Endorph despises the poor and would rather rob them blind and see them suffer. She serves as a recurring antagonist to Revya's group afterwards. She's actually Trish's long-lost sister, Shari, and in the Normal Path gives up her medicine to save her from Scarlet Iago, eventually succumbing to the disease herself


Nash and Lerouche

Shauna's two sidekicks. Generic Pyre Mages.


Hawthorne

File:Hawthorne-Capture 3992.jpg

Merchant with some extensive skeletons in his closet.


Dio of the Evil Eye

File:Dio-Capture 4005.jpg

The actual Dio and Odie's younger brother. The scion of the prestigious Dio family of sorcerers, he serves as an adviser to Queen Diness of Orviska. His ultimate goal is to kill Layna/Virtuous for humiliating his family generations ago to prove that the Dio line is more powerful and to take over the world for Median. Actively working with the World Eater Raksha.


  • Always Someone Better: Layna is his (and his family's) someone better, and he hates her for it. Also, he's this to Odie.
  • Boom Stick
  • Climax Boss: The last boss fought before crossing over to the other world. The battle in which you directly fight him and one before it are two of the longest and most tactically involving in the game, forcing you to carefully work your way around cramped terrain and bring down hordes of enemy troops. Dio himself is one of the very few enemies in the normal path to travel with a full team of nine units. And just to drive the point home, Rock n Rock's plays during the battle.
  • The Dragon: To Gestahl.
  • Evil Chancellor: Subverted. He's totally loyal to the queen (and in the Demon Path actively risks his life to save her), but still an asshole.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Odie.
  • Evil Sorcerer
  • Guest Star Party Member: Joins the party in the Demon Path for a brief amount of time.
  • Heel Face Turn: In the Demon Path, plays a Hero Antagonist role since he's initially to protect Orviska, and rescue the queen after Revya takes over. After Ghestal's death, he makes a full turn towards good and vows to work to better the world after Revya's defeat.
  • Not So Different: Is accused of being the same as Raksha in the normal path, to which he replies that Raksha doesn't actually want to rule anything, he just doesn't want anyone to give him orders.
  • Redemption Earns Life: In the Demon Path Good Ending.
  • Screw the Rules, I Make Them: His response to Odie calling him immoral magic is that laws are for commoners and that those who makes laws are above them.
  • Shock and Awe
  • Squishy Wizard
  • Undying Loyalty: To Median, even in death. So much so that the entire family spent over 200 years trying to revive and keep him alive.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He was a jerk, make no mistake, but he was doing what he thought was best for the world. Killing Layna is just to satiate his pride though.

Blazing Gestahl/Lord Median the Conqueror

Voiced by: Patrick Seitz (EN)

File:Gestahl-Capture 8958.jpg

A half-zombified swordsman with unmatched power who has been the personal property, along with Yavis and Parin, of the head of the Dio Family for generations. He's in fact Lord Median, Came Back Wrong, and actually commands the head of the Dio Family, rather than the other way around. He wishes to regain his true power.


  Gestahl: If I can grant my power to my child...then I have no regrets. I look forward to the new world you will create...the world you will lead. Hehe...hahaha!

Drazil

Voiced by: Jamieson Price (EN)

File:Drazil-Capture 6024.jpg

God of the alternate world and villain of the game. Drazil used Gig and the World Eaters to attempt to usurp the flow of souls from Haephnes and lead them all into his world. He believes his world knows true order and peace, but, in Gig's own words, his world is little more than a graveyard full of dead people who simply haven't stopped moving yet.
