This is you, the Hero (age 18). You get to pick your gender and answer a few morality questions at the beginning of the game to determine your hero's personality. You are the first born of a local adventurer named Meracon who was anointed a Hero of Delonesia about two decades ago. When the King of Rheum's daughter is kidnapped, the Heroes of Delonesia are summoned to the Rheum Kingdom so that they can be told of the situation and embark on a quest to rescue her.
Your father is summoned, but breaks his back before he can make the trip to Rheum. He asks you to go in his place.
You can learn basic magic spells, rudimentary weapon battle skills, and can equip almost every weapon type. http://www.razkertim.com/razkertim/_man ... snarry.jpg

A precocious girl who dropped out from the Academy of Magics where her parents are both esteemed scholars and her brother graduated valedictorian from. Although brimming with potential, her self-esteem issues have so far prevented her from attaining her true ability in the magical arts.
You find her roaming Achlansburg, the small fishing village where you grew up, and upon hearing of your quest, she finds it as an opportunity to prove herself and gladly joins.
Sedsnarry specializes in fire magic. She can equip staves, maces, books, and daggers. http://www.razkertim.com/razkertim/_manual/katedyre.jpg
[/img]Katedyre Denueve (age 19)
An aspiring singer whose stage name is "Kattixie". She has her own band. Unfortunately, times are tough so her main source of income has been freelance mercenary'ing with her brother, Ricallo.
She is currently living in the basement slums of the township of Galatia.
Katedyre's battle skill "Talk", allows her to randomly rant during battle, which produces results that can be either useless (display the enemies' names) or useful (display the % of health left for each enemy). Later, she can equip musical instruments that turn the "Talk" skill into "Sing", which produces better results more of the time.
Katedyre can use all four major weapon types (sword, axe, spear, bow) in addition to minor ones (dagger, musical instrument, whips). http://www.razkertim.com/razkertim/_manual/ricallo.jpg
[/img]Ricallo Denueve (age 22)
He had been studying alchemy at the Academy of Magics but was expelled after being framed for the theft of the Grandmaster's Staff. He went back to Galatia to join his sister in the mercenary business.
Ricallo's Alchemy skill allows him to create potions with available ingredients. He can also disperse multiple potions during battle. Also, when he uses a single item, its power is amplified by 50%.
Ricallo can use all four major weapon types and also daggers. http://www.razkertim.com/razkertim/_manual/redian.jpg
[/img] Redian Rubenstein (age 20)
A lowly womanizing mage from the small village of Ewyes. He never misses an opportunity to hit on any girl younger than 30. He has tried taking up summoning as a way of attracting girls. Despite his various attempts at getting girls, he seems to have very little luck with them.
Redian can summon monsters in battle. The monsters take up actual character slots so the party has to have 3 or fewer members in the active party for Redian to perform a summon. The summoned monster is around for duration of battle or until it dies. Redian also knows basic magic spells and specializes in wind magic.
He can equip staves, maces, books, and daggers. http://www.razkertim.com/razkertim/_manual/morse.jpg
[/img]Morse Pally (age 16)
A young priestess from Faerum. Prophecy dictates that she will meet a hero and accompany him to defeat Gaf Halloran. The prophecized hero is Ardineigo, but she mistakes you to be that hero instead. She is very selfish and looks down on others who aren't on her level or greater.
Morse can utilize "Prayer" in combat, which is the only set of healing/restorative spells in the game. She can equip staves, books, and whips. http://www.razkertim.com/razkertim/_manual/bowen.jpg
[/img]Bowen Bellsroy (age 30)
Bowen is a game hunter who lives in the Inner Continent. In his youth he was a party companion of some previous Heroes, including Panda and Destrager. Together with Destrager, he helped exile Gaf Halloran into the Inner Continent, and he remained there to keep a close watch and make sure that Gaf did not try to escape. Unfortunately, over the last few years, Gaf's army has been building up and with support from neighboring Faerum, Gaf began his invasion of the cities in the Inner Continent. When Bowen's house comes under attack, together with your help, he fends them off, and decides to help you put an end to Gaf's free reign of the land.
Bowen's innate hunt ability allows him to attempt to one-shot kill any monster of the 'Beast' or 'Fish' races. The success chance of this attack depends on the remaining HP % of the monster and whether it is a regular ol' monster or a boss or rare encounter. Killing a monster in this way not only nets experience and loot, but also a special monster hide drop that can be used for cooking, mixing, or selling.
Bowen also has some exclusive bow weapon skills, has an innate 3x damage against Beasts, and has a Cooking submenu that allows you to create food items that temporarily boost your stats in battle or for a few in-game hours.
Bowen can equip daggers, swords, bows, axes, and spears. http://www.razkertim.com/razkertim/_manual/ormasiel.jpg
[/img]Ormasiel MacKenzie (age 25)
Ormasiel is a strange nutbag of a man that you find hiding on an island somewhere. Despite his looks, he is not a vampire of any sorts, though little children tend to run from him in fear that he will try to suck their blood. Ormasiel lacks any sort of tact, often speaking his mind freely and saying the things that the party does not want to say to the weird townspeople sprinkled throughout the world.
So what does Ormasiel do exactly? He is a mage of sorts, but does not have any offensive magic spells nor does he excel at using weapons (He can only use daggers, rods, and books). His spells mainly alter elements (either allies or enemies) and inflict status effects. Ormasiel can also learn the two most powerful spells in the game, Polymorph, which transforms any enemy in the game into any other enemy (some enemies can only appear via Polymorph) and Holocaust, which kills every random encounter in a dungeon. http://www.razkertim.com/razkertim/_manual/lenedime.jpg
[/img]Lenedime Limestuel (age 15)
Lenedime is a thief that you first encounter in the thieves' guild in Razguul. Getting into the guild is a rather complex side quest. Once in, you must race Lenedime to the end in order to qualify for membership in the guild. By beating her, she will ask to join your party since she has nowhere else to go after being rejected by the guild.
Lenedime has no magic spells or weapon skills, however she does have a wide array of thieving skills, such as steal and mug. Some of her thieving skills are activated on the map, and allow her to do things such as detect hidden treasure or determine where the nearest exit or hidden passageways are. These skills have a fixed amount of usage per day (for instance, Lenedime can steal unlimited times but she can only use Dowsing 25 times a day).
