We’re going to go into a brief overview of each character below. While we will be avoiding any major spoilers, there will be some story set-up and context for each character.
Firstborn of the Archduke of Rosaria, Clive is a skilled master of the blade. He was expected to inherit the Phoenix’s flames, however fate had different plans when his younger brother, Joshua inherited them. Fortunately, Clive wins the ducal tournament, becoming the First Shield of Rosaria, tasked with protecting the Phoenix, meaning he also gets part of its fire.
As the second son of the Archduke of Rosaria and younger brother of Clive by five years, Joshua is the one who inherits the Phoenix’s flames, becoming the Dominant of the Phoenix. Unlike his older brother, Joshua is more fearful, but he treats all of his father’s subjects with compassion.
Born in the Northern Territories, Jill was taken from her home at a young age to become a ward of Rosaria, acting and securing a peace between the warring nations. While not blood related to the two brothers, Jill was raised in the Rosfield household and has become a trusted confidant to Clive and Joshua.
Torgal was found alone in a snowfield during one of the Archduke’s expeditions and gifted to his sons upon his return. After surviving the disaster that almost ended the Rosfield line of succession, Torgal was reunited with Clive more than a decade later and now serves him in battle, attacking enemies and also mending Clive’s wounds.
As one of Clive’s party members, Cidolfus (Cid) is a soldier turned outlaw that strives to build a place where persecuted magick casters and explored Dominants can die on their own terms. He is the Dominant of Ramuh after awakening with him upon landing on the Valisthean shores.
Hugo Kupka was once a nameless foot soldier in the Republican Army, however his awakening as the Dominant of the Eikon Titan has pushed him to the front of Dhalmekian politics. Now known as a Permanent Economic Advisor, his new position means he has a lot of influence on both nation’s armies and policy making.
Dominant of the Eikon Garuda, Benedikta was coldhearted and ruthless in her youth. However, she used her talent for deceit and swordplay to be able to command Waloed’s elite intelligencers. While on a mission to find the elusive second Eikon of Fire, she crosses paths with Clive, which forces her to face her past.
Dion is the crown prince of the Holy Empire of Sanbreque, as well as the leader of the most feared order of knights, the dragoons. He’s beloved and respected by both his troops and people, but all is not well in the empire.
Arriving in Valisthea, titleless and landless, Barnabas’s skill with a sword won him a kingdom over time. Despite a revolution of local beastmen, who attempted to usurp his land, Barnabas came out on top thanks to calling the power of his Eikon, Odin. Despite having an army that could rival any in the world, Barnabas is still one to find the thick of the battle, riding in on his spectral steed.
