At this point in history, between the second and third games in the series, the Pangalactic Federation is nearing the fulfilment of its mission to bring peace and order to the galaxy. However, the embers of conflict begin to stir once again six thousand light years from Earth, on the planet of Faykreed, as a new story begins in the cosmic sea.
characters

fidel fidel fidel fidel

Fidel Camuze is the hero of our story and the son of the country's military advisor. Under his father’s tutelage, Fidel learned to wield a sword at an early age and has since become more than proficient with that weapon—so much so that he now teaches the art of swordsmanship to those in his hometown of Sthal. Like his upstanding father, Fidel feels a sense of honor and responsibility to use his skills for the sake of protecting his village.

miki miki miki miki

Miki Sauvester is one of Fidel's childhood friends, and having grown up with him, the two are very close. She's positive and charmingly upbeat, but also very protective of those she cares about. Miki is imbued with signets that give her the ability to heal others, which makes her an invaluable ally.

victor victor victor victor

Victor is a member of an elite group of soldiers in the Central Resulian Army called the King's Chosen. All Victor's subordinates hold him in high esteem, and he has the strongest sense of duty of anyone in the land. Although he never hesitates to fulfill orders, Victor is conflicted about how his job requires him to end the lives of others.

fiore fiore fiore fiore

One of the most adept signeturges, even when compared to her fellow researchers at the Royal Institute of Signetary Studies in Langdauq. The complex signets she has imbued allow her to inundate her foes with a torrential downpour of destructive spells.

emmerson emmerson emmerson emmerson

This rascally companion of Anne's is always on the lookout for exquisite liquors and eligible women. Though it may be easy to mistake him for a flippant playboy on first glance, he can quickly change into a man of action when the moment calls for one.

anne anne anne anne

With looks that could kill and nerves of steel, one would assume Anne has ice in her veins to go with all that, but she is actually one of the kindest people there is. As an example of this, her love of cats burns brighter than multiple systems' stars.

relia relia relia relia

Relia drops into Fidel and Miki's life with no memory of anything that transpired prior to meeting them, and if she ever had emotions, she does not display them anymore. She does, however, cling to Miki like a small child would her mother. On top of all this, someone appears to be doing everything in his or her power to capture Relia.

battle

seamless realtime battle seamless realtime battle seamless realtime battle seamless realtime battle

When players engage their enemies, the fight will begin without a single loading screen or even a pause in the action. Then, once everyone is acquainted, the battle mechanics will challenge players to think on their feet strategically. Each of the three actions players can take are related, and predicting the opposition's movements is a must for efficiently dispatching one's foes. If that isn't enough, players also have the ability to switch between up to six controllable characters at the touch of a button.
small attack
These martial maneuvers are quick, easy-to-use moves that nullify strong attacks, but deal less damage and are easily guarded against, rather limiting their potency.
large attack
Strong attacks are slow and can be countered by weak ones, but are extremely powerful and break through enemies' defenses when executed.
guard
Guarding greatly reduces damage from weak attacks, but cannot block strong ones. Furthermore, pressing the guard button soon after successfully guarding against a weak attack gives players the ability to counterattack.

Reserve Rush Reserve Rush Reserve Rush Reserve Rush

Characters’ reserve rushes can be activated by expending bars that accumulate by filling the gauge.

world

the kingdom of resulia the kingdom of resulia the kingdom of resulia the kingdom of resulia

Resulia is a vibrant kingdom that represents everything great about the Vestielian continent. Recently, however, it has been wracked by threats, including cursed beasts and a fiendish group of bandits named Eitalon. This upheaval plaguing Resulia is one reason Fidel and his companions embark on their journey; they wish to restore balance to this once productive and safe nation.

the kingdom of langdauq the kingdom of langdauq the kingdom of langdauq the kingdom of langdauq

Langdauq has prospered under the rule of its matriarchs, or Venerable Mothers, the current of which is Malvenaec. Not only is she a fair leader, but she also knows how to sling a spell or two, and as a member of the ruling family, she has access to exclusive signets that are passed down from generation to generation via a sacred rite of passage. Thanks in part to this system, the nation has developed into a signeturgical power. Though Langdauq could easily abuse its proficiency in the signeturgical arts for political gain, it instead has forged an alliance with Resulia to provide it with military aid.

the kingdom of trei'kur the kingdom of trei'kur the kingdom of trei'kur the kingdom of trei'kur

Not even the most biased of historians would endeavor to call this parched land a paradise. Most of the country is a desert, and the little soil that departs from that description has too few nutrients to sustain the raising of crops. Its lack of natural resources is the primary reason this country is currently at war with neighboring Resulia.

Charles De Goale Charles De Goale Charles De Goale Charles De Goale

Despite being designed as a research vessel, this craft also possesses decent offensive capabilities. It packs weaponry like phase cannons and photon torpedoes, shields that offer the highest degree of protection, and a warp engine anyone would be proud of, but also has numerous facilities for the many passengers it was made to carry. Among its spacious interior are groups of vendors, a sick bay, and a hall for the transport of personnel, which all help make the Charles D. Goale as self-sufficient as possible.
