Biography: Recently, Arth showed up out of nowhere in the Castle, under the guardianship of Queen Kailah. No one knows much about him, other than that he came from Grenada, the "cold kingdom" (which explains the surplus in how much clothing he wears). If you don't play as him, he will take on a job (or perhaps hobby?) at the library, handling and selling magic. In combat, he is adept with all kinds of magic, especially Ice (no surprises there).
Personality: Arth keeps to himself mostly. When he does talk, his great intellect and blunt honesty can sometimes upset those of a sensitive heart. He's a rather cold man, not capable of freely expressing his emotions - except with those he greatly trusts.
Likes & Dislikes: Arth easily gets along with people that have a good head on their shoulders, but even more so, he appreciates those that are kind and genuine. Not surprisingly, he has no tolerance for those that are ditsy or dim-witted. For gifts, he enjoys anything that could come from a bakery (basically, anything bread-like). He also enjoys magical items, such as crystals. Just don't ever make him anything with onions in it.
*He is canon with Diora.
Biography: Years ago, Clyde lived a pampered life of luxury with absolutely no worries. Everything changed when his sister, Alita, was disowned by their father for getting engaged to a peasant priest (Thane). Clyde left home to search for his sister, and with no place to go, he ended up living with Alita and her fiance in Noverno. Although he constantly complains about missing his wealthy lifestyle, Clyde has never been happier. Most days, you can find him hunting in the woods. In combat, he is very well-balanced, but favors accuracy over everything else.
Personality: Because of his sheltered childhood, he's a bit of a stuck-up jerk on the surface, often obsessively talking about himself. His snotty qualities aren't frowned upon, but rather have become a point of amusement for the other villagers. Deep down, he is a sensitive man with ethical values.
Likes & Dislikes: Clyde is shallow in that he prefers "cute" girls with a little spunk and pep. People that are interesting easily catch his attention. However, he can be very sensitive and greatly dislikes being criticized. For gifts, he is easily won over by dairy foods - especially cheesecake! He also enjoys the taste of strawberries. The bland taste of potatoes can easily be a turn-off for him, though.
*He is canon with Marlene.
Biography: Lucas moved to Noverno years ago, with his father (Bron). His dad owns the town inn, so you can often find him working at the bar, or cooking up some dishes. If you're lucky, you might find him practicing with his guitar, creating a sound that is sure to melt the hearts of unsuspecting females. He's good with a sword, which seems awfully suspicious, but his sweet smile keeps everyone from questioning his background.
Personality: Lucas is a pretty relaxed guy, rarely getting angry or upset over anything. He's got an eye for beautiful women, just like his father (only it's not creepy on him because he's young and handsome!). Despite his somewhat thuggish appearance, he can be a really agreeable person. He's a simple man that is quite easy to get along with.
Likes & Dislikes: He's got a thing for sassy, assertive girls especially, but any lady can get along with him easily. He's not very picky about friends, either, but a good sense of humor goes a long way. For gifts, he enjoys comfort food: alcoholic beverages and warm soups/stews. He's allergic to oranges, so feeding them to him is not the best idea.
*He is canon with Ren.
Biography: Roderick has lived a rough life, often scorned and mistreated because of his Eclantian blood - the fabled "cursed" tribe. He originally fought on the side of Brutanus in the great war, but ended up betraying his country when he saw the true madness of its late king. He now resides in Noverno, taken in by the blacksmith (Cypher), who needed a worthy and strong assistant. Roderick is very powerful, so his combat prowess is valuable.
Personality: As tensions with the Eclantians died down, Roderick still found himself unable to trust anyone around him. He makes very little effort to spare the feelings of others, or even make contact with them. Anyone that finds their way to his good side is sure to be met with a very loyal, protective friend.
Likes & Dislikes: Surprisingly, Roderick can be rather easy to get along with. Kind and thoughtful people, that are willing to look past his apparent aggression, can earn his trust. Annoying (or immature) people easily get on his nerves, as he does not like being teased. For gifts, he enjoys useful objects, such as ores. Anything made of beef is bound to win him over, but milk disgusts him.
*He is canon with Nadia.
Biography: Elliot lives in Noverno with his sister, Summer. He is one of the two knights to patrol the town (the other being Diora). He previously lived in Berga, but after the war, he and his sister settled down in Noverno. Despite his social nature, he is also secretly attracted to the occult. He primarily relies on his superb defense in combat, but is also very capable with magic.
Personality: Elliot is respected by almost everyone because of his warm personality and chivalrous nature. He's a peaceful man, but can be a bit dramatic and overzealous when it comes to relationships.
Likes & Dislikes: Elliot gets along with most people (especially women), but contains a "white knight" syndrome that especially draws him to women that are more emotional. He has difficulty getting close to people that are detached, though. For gifts, he loves crystals and anything made with eggs. He doesn't enjoy the taste of tomatoes, though.
*He is canon with Elsie.
