"Okay, how fucking stupid does Square think I am? Phil made it plainly obvious before that all would-be heroes entering the games have to go through him. And he tells them PERSONALLY that they don't have what it takes. Yet when they show up with an entry permit they obviously cheated to get, he just throws up his hands and allows them to enter? Looks like my old friend Mr. Contrivance is entering the games, too. I think Mr. Rational Storytelling was already eliminated. Hours ago."

Legend of Dragoon : Cast
In order of recap appearance.

Dart
Dart

Nickname(s): Red Cloud
Age: ?
Description: Dart is your standard issue post FFVII hero. Its all here - the spiky hair, the sword obsession and the approaching mental collapse. He also has some unresolved father-son issues to work out with Daddy, to absolutely no one's surprise. To top off this already dismal collection of traits, let's add in rampant pyromania and a VA that makes JAT look good. Dart begins our tale on a mission to kill "The Black Monster". Hmm?I wonder if he'll find said monster?

First appearance:   Part 1

Shana
Shana

Nickname(s): Not-Yuna
Age: ?
Description: Don't give this girl another thought. Trust me, you've seen her before. A leggy brunette white mage/healer who's got all the offensive stopping power of a wet Kleenex, and about as much personality. She's also *gasp!* the bearer of The Huge World Ending Thingy, which means that she's kidnapped, abducted, spirited away, or just plain lost about once every five minutes or so, necessitating many, many, MANY rescues by Dart & Co. She and Dart, of course, are destined to find Twoo Wuuv. Don't tell me you didn't see it coming.

First appearance:   Part 1

Rose
Rose

Nickname(s): Exposition!Chick
Age: ?
Description: Ah, at last a deviation from the formula! See, Rosie here is the resident badass of our little group. Watch the men step aside as she unleashes the power of darkness on unsuspecting enemies! Feel her wrath as she snarks her way through the cumbersome plot! Gasp with surprise and horror as she reveals her... okay, maybe not. In any case, Rose is a smartass, grouchy chick with a big sword. I like her. If she has a flaw, it's the part in the script that calls for her to add "romantic tension" between Shana and Dart. I'd like to think she was just using little Dart for some lovin' to fill the void in her black, black soul. Hey, it happens.

First appearance:   Part 1

Lavitz
Lavitz

Nickname(s): Sergeant Pepper
Age: ?
Description: Lavitz is your typical married to duty soldier. Not terribly quick on the uptake, loyal, strong and has a passion for the ladies not shared by his new friend Dart. When we first meet Lavitz, he's breaking his fellow soldiers out of prison and beating the crap out of everyone he sees. He's old friends with the King of the Duchy of Basil, and they both like to wear green. I wonder if that means something?

First appearance:   Part 2

Albert
Albert

Nickname(s): King Bohunk
Age: ?
Description: Our boy Albert's the great King of the Duchy of Basil. How you can be the king of a duchy is one of those little things the lazy-ass game designers didn't think of. He's tall, he's rich, he's handsome and he's completely honest and honorable. He's the best darned king in Serdio, and his real name is Gary Stu! Considering that the only rival for the title of "best king" is a giggling madman and his cast of single-digit I.Q. henchmen, this isn't all it's cracked up to be. Did I mention Albert's really long staff? No? Well, I did just now.

First appearance:   Part 4

Kongol
Kongol

Nickname(s): none
Age: ?
Description: Kongol is the embodiment of the "big, strong and dumb" archetype. He's all three at once, and boy is there a lot to go around. When we first meet our resident rocket scientist, Kongol is the employ of those dastardly evildoers from Sandora. He takes obscene pleasure in beating the living crap out of both Dart and Lavitz, while I take obscene pleasure in letting him do it. Kongol also has a huge axe, and a penchant for some of the less polite arm gestures, but deep down, you know he's just a big, dumb goomba who'll eventually see the errors of his ways and agree to join up with our intrepid heroes, if only to make Dart look better in the thinking department. Good luck, big guy.

First appearance:   Part 5

Haschel
Haschel

Nickname(s): none
Age: ?
Description: Every party needs an old fart, and Haschel is it. Astoundingly enough, he is somewhat along in his years at the ripe old age of sixty-something. Haschel is a master of martial arts, and as you may have already guessed, destined to become a Dragoon. When we first meet up with Haschel, he's whooping ass for fun and profit in Lohan as a break from looking for his runaway daughter. I don't know about you, but nothing says "fatherly love" like judo-chopping some poor schmo right in half.

First appearance:   Part 8

Lloyd
Lloyd

Nickname(s): Lucius, Pseudoroth, Blue Dress Dude
Age: ?
Description: Ah, our baddie that wasn't. Lloyd is here to throw a little dramatic tension into our story and to give the bishounen loving fangirls an object for their affections. He's not so much evil as he is misguided, not so much misguided as he is just plain whiny. At least he doesn't have that damn Jenova/mother obsession going on.

First appearance:   Part 8
