Lunar Legend

Lunar Legend - Characters

Welcome to LunarNET's Lunar Legend characters section! Below are bios from the major and minor characters of Lunar Legend


Alex Noah

Alex is the protagonist of our story. He was born in the village of Burg, and grew up listening to tales of legendary heroes like Dragonmaster Dyne. He dreams of setting off on a grand adventure himself one day.

Alex's surname has been given as Noah or Noa in different sources ("Noah") is what we're going with here. Noah is also the name of his father (who set off on an adventure with Dyne himself, long before Alex was born). Alex's name in the Japanese version was also transliterated as 'Arhes'.


Luna

Luna is Alex's childhood friend. When Alex was a child, a mysterious stranger left her and Nall in the care of Alex's parents. She has innate healing talents, and often looks after Alex, but their friendship blossomed into something greater by the time their adventure began.

Luna is sometimes referred to as "Luna Noah" or "Luna Noa" in the artbook and other sources. Luna's name in the original Japanese version was also transliterated as 'Luhna'.


Nall

Nall is Alex's constant companion. This strange creature was left in the care of Alex's parents by the same man who left them Luna.

Note: Nall is not a flying cat.


Ramus Farmine

Ramus is the son of Burg's mayor, and Alex's childhood friend. He's always looking for a new way to make money, and he's the one who first proposes the idea to Alex of journeying to the White Dragon Cave to get the diamond.

Ramus's surname was only mentioned in the Lunar I+II artbook.


Nash Rumack

Nash is an elite magician in the Magic Guild of Vane, a direct apprentice of Ghaleon. Though he comes off as less elite, and more elitist. But more than magic, what he focuses on most in the world is Mia--even though he can never bring himself to express his feelings.

Lunar Legend is the only place where Nash's surname was transliterated into English. The US version gives it as "Rumack"; we've transliterated it elsewhere as "Lumach" (before Legend, the artbooks mentioned his last name as well). Lastly, unlike other games, Nash shows up right from the start in Burg, instead of in Saith or the Hag's House. Also, his original name in the Japanese version was transliterated as 'Nasch'.


Mia Ausa

Mia is the daughter of the current Guildmistress, Lemia Ausa, and heir to the Magic Guild of Vane. She's incredibly kind, but she is shy and has spent her entire life in the magic city, yet she still has incredible magical talents and a desire to know about the world outside of Vane.

The Ausa family is based on matrilineal descent, and the Magic Guild has always been led by an Ausa.


Jessica de Alkirk

Jessica is the only daughter of Master Mel, mayor of Meribia. She is also training to be a priestess at the Temple of Althena. Before her father she maintains a sweet demeanor. But in truth, she's an incredibly confident and strong-willed woman, a powerful fighter, and a skilled healer. Her arguments with Kyle may seem fierce, but there's a fondess underlying it all.

In TSS Jessica's name was just 'Jessica Alkirk'. In the Japanese version of SSS she still refers to herself as 'Jessica Alkirk', although in the US version she refers to herself as 'Jessica de Alkirk'. In Legend she doesn't use her surname at any point, but does refer to her father as 'Mel de Alkirk'.


Kyle

Kyle leads the protectors (or bandits, depending on if you've paid up) stationed at the Nanza Barrier. He's known for his leadership and swordsmanship skills, but also for his penchant for drunkenness and womanizing. Despite this, he's a very reliable ally, and has a soft spot for Jessica despite often getting in trouble with her.

Kyle's name in the original Japanese version was transliterated as 'Killy'. Also, fun fact: in the novels, he was made a pirate instead of a bandit. Then again, the novels changed nearly everything.


Fresca

Fresca (and her husband Tempest) hail from the Plains Tribe of Pao. An adept rider, hunter, and fighter, she set out with Tempest to find a cure for the plague afflicting her people.

In TSS, Fresca gave her full name as 'Franchesca', though this doesn't happen in Legend. In the Japanese version, her name was originally transliterated as 'Pilya'.


Tempest

Tempest is the chief and the strongest warrior of the Plains Tribe of Pao, and the husband of Fresca. He's also an adept rider and fighter who set out with Fresca to find a cure for the plague affecting his people.

In TSS, Tempest was the son of the village chief; in Legend, he is the chief. Also, in the Japanese version, Tempest's name was transliterated as 'Temzin', although the actual pronunciation is closer to 'Temujin' (which was the given name of Genghis Khan).


Laike

Laike is a mysterious stranger whom Alex and his friends meet in the Weird Woods outside of Burg. Though, he's very friendly, a skilled fighter, and always seems to jump in when Alex and company need a helping hand.

Laike's name in the Japanese version was originally transliterated as 'Laeik'.


Althena

The Goddess Althena is the goddess of love and beauty, and the primary goddess of Lunar. She loves music and song, but also has a terrifying side: five-hundred years ago, she banished the Vile Tribe to the Frontier when they rose up in rebellion and attempted to conquer the world. Periodically, she is reborn as a human and lives amongst the people.

In the original, small shrines to Althena dotted the landscape. In Legend, there is just the large Shrine to Althena at the base of the Goddess Tower.


Dyne

Dragonmaster Dyne was the last Dragonmaster prior to the events of Silver Star Story. As legend goes, he and three other heroes (Ghaleon, Mel, and Lemia) once defeated a powerful sorceror that sought to destroy the world; thereafter, they were known as the Four Heroes. But some time thereafter, a situation arose where he risked his life for the Goddess and paid the ultimate price.

The Four Heroes story was changed between TSS and both SSS and Legend (and slightly again in the PSP version, Silver Star Harmony). Also, Legend makes more of Dyne's love for Althena. Dyne's name in the Japanese version was originally transliterated as 'Dain'. Same pronunciation.


Mel de Alkirk

Master Mel was one of the Four Heroes who traveled with Dyne. He is now the mayor of Meribia, the largest city on Lunar. Under him, Meribia has become safe and more prosperous. He was originally a pirate captain who went by the name "Hell Mel"; after a seven-day fight to a stalemate with Dyne, they called a draw and Mel joined with Dyne to go on to save the world. He later settled down and married a noblewoman in Meribia; his wife passed away, but not without leaving a daughter: Jessica. Perhaps that's why he dotes on her so much.

In Legend Jessica refers to Mel once as an Admiral. Also, his name was always given as 'Mel de Alkirk' in the US and Japanese versions of both the originals and remakes.


Lemia Ausa

Lemia Ausa is the Guildmistress of the Magic Guild of Vane. The Ausa family has always been at the head of the guild, charged with governing the use of magic across the world for the past millenium. She was one of four heroes who journeyed alongside Dyne. Naturally, her magic talents are formidable.

Lemia's name in the Japanese version was transliterated as 'Remilia'. The story of how she met Dyne and Ghaleon for the first time is also in the Vane Airship Story manga, although nothing in the games talk about this.


Ghaleon

Ghaleon is the current Premier of Vane. He was one of the Four Heroes who was with Dyne, and also was Dyne's closest friend. The loss of his friend scarred him deeply, and ever since that day he only ever shows a cold and emotionless demeanor. He is a member of a long-lived race, and his magic powers are incredible--perhaps even greater than Lemia Ausa's.

Ghaleon's past is revealed a bit in the Vane Airship Story manga. Part of that highlights how he's part of the same race as the Vile Tribe, evidenced by the shape of his ears and the ease with which he uses magic (even without any incantations).


Phacia

Phacia is the head Priestess of Althena's Shrine, which is located at the foot of the Goddess Tower. She is very warm and friendly; many at the temple are transfixed by her, and some even think of her as the reborn form of the Goddess herself.

Phacia was first introduced in SSS (she wasn't in the original TSS). Her name in the Japanese version was originally transliterated as 'Faithia'.


Royce

Royce is a fortune-teller operating at a small shop at the end of Black Rose Street in Meribia. She's highly secretive and has only been around for a short while, yet she is regularly consulted by Lemia and Ghaleon.

Royce is another character first introduced in SSS (never in the original TSS). Her name in the Japanese version was originally translated as 'Rouyce'.


Xenobia

Xenobia is the leader of the Vile Tribe, banished to the inhospitable Frontier nearly 500 years ago by Althena after they attempted to conquer the world. An unusually powerful witch, she single-mindedly pursues the restoration of her tribe and its freedom from the Frontier.

While the game never explains what Xenobia's markings are, the Lunar I+II Artbook refers to them as tattoos, and other sources (e.g., Magical School Lunar and the Vane Airship Story manga) draw a connection between such markings and magical abilities.
