If you are an artist interested in working on this project, please feel free to email me. I am looking for a pixel artist as well as a 2D character designer for portraits.

Some of the images used as placeholder art are copyrighted by their respective owner, Square Enix. These resources include custom sprites by the artists at Other resources seen are either created by myself or are credited to their respective owners on the Credits page.

If you see any media on this website that is not attributed properly is please let me know and I will fix it immediately.

This is a very early look at the cast of characters for the main story. Main characters are exactly that, playable characters who will have an impact on the story. All main characters will have their own Unique Job which will give them access to many unique abilities and passives.

Side characters are usually characters who have their own special version of a pre-defined Job as well as a unique sprite. You may know them better as “named generics” if you're familiar with Tactics Ogre.

Over the course of the game you will meet both main and side characters, most of which may join you on your adventure while others may help out from time to time. The majority of your army will be made up of generic units that you hire from the Guild Hall.

Note: Since I drew a lot of these, they look pretty crappy. They will be replaced with proper portraits of the characters as soon as possible.



Generic Characters

As you progress through the game you will unlock the ability to manage an ever expanding regiment of units. You would do well to shore up your forces by doing something called Recruitment. This is where the idea of a Generic Character comes into play.

At many of the towns you will visit, you will find Guild Halls which are recruitment centers for the various Orders that exist throughout the land.

This process essentially allows you to create or “hire” a somewhat customized unit of your choosing. Early on, recruitment will be necessary to tackle the challenges that await. Over time you'll most likely switch to using a party of main characters, but there are certain things only generic units can do.

Story Characters

Over the course of the game you will meet a plethora of characters, your various interactions with them will pave the way for your adventure through the Kingdom of Acedia and beyond. As mentioned above, some characters may join your cause, others may simply help in other ways.
