"Samcules is hulking up or something at the edge of the square arena. 'Show me what you've got!' he snarls at Junior in a sad attempt to sound intimidating. And it would have been worse if this scene were voice-acted. '[Samcules], wait,' Junior says out of the blue. 'Let's go one-on-one!' WHAT."

Tales of Symphonia : Cast
In order of recap appearance.
1 : 2
Lloyd Irving
Lloyd Irving

Nickname(s): none
Age: ?
Description: The hero. Like ten thousand other RPG heroes, he's an orphan who possesses a mysterious, stat-enhancing magical stone. Personality-wise, Lloyd is a dumbass of near-Shion proportions. But that's okay, because he's noble and true! He's going to change every bad thing about the world! Don't mind me, I'll just be here checking items off the Cliched Character Traits List.

First appearance:   Part 1

Raine Sage
Raine Sage

Nickname(s): none
Age: ?
Description: Raine, the hot schoolteacher, has a passion for one thing. And it's not her prepubescent brother, contrary to what you might read in fanfiction. Nope, Raine loves ancient relics -- the older and more obscure, the better. She's kind of like an OLD SK00L fanboy in that way, except with less body odor and a much higher chance of getting laid in the near future. Raine also serves as the Deus Expositor Machina, pulling out random information just when the plot requires it, and not necessarily when it might make sense to reveal it to her companions. Oh, and she also has a MYSTERIOUS SECRET!!!

First appearance:   Part 1

Genis Sage
Genis Sage

Nickname(s): Penis
Age: ?
Description: Raine's younger brother who possesses a most unfortunate name. Like his sister, he's S00PER D00PER SMRT and magically talented, but with black magic instead of white. It should come as no surprise that he...greatly admires his best buddy Lloyd. If that didn't make his orientation apparent enough, just wait till he meets the other prepubescent girly boy in the game. Holy shit.

First appearance:   Part 1

Colette Brunel
Colette Brunel

Nickname(s): Suelette
Age: ?
Description: Colette is right up there with other obvious Sues of gaming history. Destined from birth to sacrifice herself in order to save the world? Check. Needs to be rescued near constantly? Check. Freaking angel wings? Check and check. Her only saving grace is that she doesn't tend toward the passive-aggressive naggy bullshit, unlike, say, Rinoa or Elena. Small favors.

First appearance:   Part 1

Frank Brunel
Frank Brunel

Nickname(s): none
Age: ?
Description: Colette's dad. OR IS HE?!?!?! Whether he is or not, he doesn't really seem to give the tiniest shit about Colette. It's not that he's the Mean, Abusive Father Figure -- he just...doesn't care. As long as no one's angsting about his shitty parenting skills, it's all good.

First appearance:   Part 1

Phaidra
Phaidra

Nickname(s): none
Age: ?
Description: Colette's grandma. I think she's some sort of village priestess or something. She has a special magical ability called "Plot Convenience" that allows her to survive an attack that killed all the other temple priests.

First appearance:   Part 1

Botta
Botta

Nickname(s): none
Age: ?
Description: A pointy-eared, pointy-bearded fellow first seen attacking the Martel Temple in Iselia and trying to kill Colette. But is he really bad? Is he one of those shithead Desians, as Lloyd assumes? Whose side is he really on? Most importantly, how can he manage to fight in that long skirt?

First appearance:   Part 1

Kratos Aurion
Kratos Aurion

Nickname(s): none
Age: ?
Description: The requisite Mysterious Sword-Wielding Badass. His last name indicates that the game designers pretty much admit their blatant ripping off of FFX. Though anyone with a single braincell to their name could tell that this guy has his own Mysterious Agenda, our party of morons thinks he's just a random mercenary. To add to the insulting list of clich?s, he turns out to be Lloyd's dad. Okay, I just spoiled it, but who didn't freaking figure it out within the first two minutes?

First appearance:   Part 1

Remiel
Remiel

Nickname(s): Rimiel
Age: ?
Description: Remiel is the angel charged with delivering the oracle to Colette. For some reason -- possibly his blond hair -- everyone thinks he must be Colette's real dad. Yeah, only if the insemination was done artificially, if you follow me.

First appearance:   Part 2

Noishe
Noishe

Nickname(s): none
Age: ?
Description: Lloyd's strange pet. He has green patches of fur and giant ears that look like wings. Although Lloyd insists he's just a regular dog, Lloyd is a dumbass and is obviously wrong about this. We don't find out what the deal is with Noishe until later in the game, naturally.

First appearance:   Part 3
