La Schugall

Nachtigal I. Fan
File:NachtigalIFan200 8340.jpg

The king of La Schugall. Described as "a king who reigns like a tyrant", Nachtigal seeks to use the forbidden power of Jin and the Spear of Kresnik to conquer A Jule and the world.

Tropes associated with Nachtigal


Agria
File:Agria200 6058.jpg

A genius technician who works alongside Nachtigal in developing the Spear of Kresnik. Though a gifted user of Spirit Artes, she is vindictive, impulsive and quite crazy.


Jiland

One of Nachtigal's underlings. Jiland is a scientist who helped him develop the Spear of Kresnik.

  • The Chessmaster: It turns out that he is from a world beyond Liese Maxia called Elenpios. As the leader of Ark Noah, an organisation of people from Elenpois who became stranded on Liese Maxia after an accident, he manipulated Nachtigal into constructing the Spear of Kresnik so that his people could break through the Shell barrier dividing the two worlds. Though he deceived the majority of Ark Noah into believing their only goal was to return home, his true objective was to allow the army of Elenpois to conquer Liese Maxia and plunder their mana supplies.
  • The Dragon & The Evil Genius
  • Expository Hairstyle Change
  • Evil Uncle: He's Alvin's.
  • For Science!
  • Moral Event Horizon: He takes a little too much joy in watching innocent people dissolve into mana during his experiments to increase the Spear of Kresnik's efficiency.
  • Smug Snake: For the mastermind behind the Spear of Kresnik and Ark Noah (and thus the plot of two-thirds of the game), he comes off as more of a megalomaniacal Jerkass than anything else. He doesn't even get a Mystic Arte.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it "Jiland" or "Jirand"?
  • Summon Magic: He's the master of Celsius, an artificial Greater Spirit created by his newly-developed "Origin" magic.
  • White-Haired Pretty Boy: With red-tips. Not that "pretty boy" is a phrase you'd ever use to describe him.

A Jule

Gaius
File:Gaius200 7745.jpg

The ruler of A Jule, known as a hero who unified the warring clans of A Jule under his command. He believes that the strong should protect the weak, and only wishes for the prosperity of his people.

  • A God Am I: An odd case, as he wants to become one because he feels that the current Maxwell has abandoned the people.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's not the king of A Jule for nothing.
  • Badass
  • Bigger Bad Duumvirate: Together with Musee.
  • Blue Oni: Despite his fiery colour scheme.
  • Elemental Powers:
  • Fireballs: His Mystic Arte is basically a few of these followed by a slash.
  • Katanas Are Just Better
  • Obviously Evil: Subverted. His outfit just screams "boss fight", but the more you learn about him the less antagonistic he seems. After all, despite being one of the Final Bosses, he was only trying to replace Maxwell so he could have the power to protect others in his stead.
  • Ryotaro Okiayu
    • Funny enough, he shares many of his attacks with Dymlos, who is also voiced by Ryotaro Okiayu.
  • Samurai
  • Shiny Midnight Black
  • The Stoic: He doesn't express his emotions well. At first...
  • Sword Beam: Hadoumeppuu returns!
  • Team Dad: To all of A Jule.
  • What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome?: He seems to put a lot of energy into his Mystic Arte for a move that just involves a couple of fireballs and a slash.
    • It's not only that. On a visual level, he somehow manages to make the basic Majinken and Shunjinken attacks look epic... and that's not even getting into his Hien Shunrenzan. Basically, Gaius takes the basic Tales moveset and infuses an unnecessarily large amount of energy into it.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He believes that the strong must protect the weak. And will do anything to adhere to that philosophy. After teaming up with Musee he starts a campaign to completely eradicate Jin from the world because it poses a threat to Liese Maxia. The problem is that Elenpois is reliant upon Jin to survive.
  • Worthy Opponent: Jude's intro for the game shows them fighting on a fairly equal footing and the ending indicates his respect for the boy's abilities.

Wingull
File:Wingull200 5947.jpg

The leader of Gaius' personal lieutenants, the "Fourve". Wingull is Gaius' right-hand man and strategical expert. He is a powerful swordsman in his own right, though in combat he switches to a violent and bloodthirsty persona.


Presa
File:Presa200 2616.jpg

One of Gaius' "Fourve", Presa specialises in information gathering and intelligence. She has a love-hate relationship with Alvin, and is a powerful user of Spirit Artes and summoning magic.


Jiao
File:Jaio200 5401.jpg

One of Gaius' "Fourve". Jiao is a calm and empathetic fellow whose bloodline contains the ability to control the "Gate" of monsters, essentially placing them under his command.


Other Characters

Ivar
File:Ivar200 641.jpg

Milla's personal aide, who has served at her side since she was a baby. Ivar takes enormous pride in his role, even if his enthusiasm far outstrips his intelligence. He quickly develops a rivalry with Jude, incensed that Milla has chosen to travel with Jude over himself.

  • Ambiguously Brown
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Inverted as his 'brows are more like tiny tufts of hair, but the "over-the-top" use of the trope is still in play.
  • Bishounen
  • Butt Monkey -> The Chew Toy: His suffering just gets played up, and is exaggerated, for more and more comedy value as time goes by.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy
  • Comedic Sociopathy / Slapstick: Whenever he appears in a scene, the odds of this happening go up. Usually to him.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Looks like an idiot, acts like a bigger idiot, sounds like an even bigger idiot... and yet he's the only story character who isn't a villain nor part of the Six Man Band who has a Mystic Arte.
    • Not to mention the fact that he climbs up a giant cannon on a moving airship in the middle of a battle with no discernible effort.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: His Mystic Arte has shades of this.
  • Dual-Wielding
  • Easily Forgiven: He never really gets a comeuppance for firing the Spear of Kresnik. In fact, everyone just seems to forget about his role in activating it, even though it directly causes all the problems in the second half of the game.
  • Expy: Of Haseo. Personality-wise he acts like Gokudera.
  • Genre Blind: The kid acts like a silly Lancer character in a Shonen series; acting like a general buffoon while trying to be endearing to his allies. The poor guy just doesn't seem to "get" what the Tales series is.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Towards Jude, whom he envies for stealing Milla's attention away.
  • Idiot Hero
  • If I Can't Have You / Murder the Hypotenuse: Very narrowly averted. Much like Chitose, his rivalry with the new person in his master's life has shades of this but it isn't carried out. He comes damn close when he fires up the Spear of Kresnik, though.
  • Kill'Em All: He very nearly accomplishes this when he feeds the party to power the Spear of Kresnik.
  • The Lancer: To be fair to the kid, there is evidence to suggest that he was this to Milla before she met Jude. Afterwards, he became more like The Load.
  • Large Ham
  • Lawful Stupid: Mocked, as his loyalty to Milla doesn't really accomplish anything and just results in his frequent humiliation... until he snaps.
  • Loony Fan: You know how you normally meet somebody who's suicidally loyal to a main character in an RPG? Ivar takes that basic idea and runs about eighty-thousand miles with it.
  • Made of Iron: Well, what else do you call a guy who breaks his sword off on a rock, has the blade embed itself in his forehead and then pulls it out with minimal injury?
  • Nightmare Face: His face is positively batshit insane when he goes up against Jude out of jealousy.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Nobody takes him seriously, everything he does is accompanied by cartoonish sound effects...
    • The Scrappy: ... And eventually he becomes a minor in-universe example. Milla even Facepalms at him the splitsecond she sees him in one scene...
      • Not So Harmless: ... That is, until half a minute later when he fires-up the Spear of Kresnik. On a less-spoilery note, the kid has a Mystic Arte; something which Xillia is surprisingly stingy with.
  • Red Oni: To Jude and Milla's Blue.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Milla.
  • Unwitting Pawn: He believes that he's doing the right thing by firing up the Spear of Kresnik, as he thinks it will free the spirits. Instead, it just plays right into Jiland's hands.
  • White-Haired Pretty Boy: Although he... rather lacks the typical personality.

Musee
File:Musee200 8345.jpg

A Greater Spirit that shows up after the Spear of Kresnik is fired. Musee has a whimsical personality and quickly attaches herself to Jude. She was created by the original Maxwell to protect the Shell dividing Liese Maxia and Elenpios. She takes her job a little too seriously and would gladly do anything to ensure the Shell stays in place.
