Star Ocean: The Last Hope Characters

Edge Maverick

JP name: Edge Marverick
Sex: Male
Age: 20
Race: Earthling
Weapon: Sword
Voice Actor: Kishio Daisuke (JP); Matthew Mercer (EN)

An honest young man with a strong sense of justice and responsibility. He volunteers for the maiden voyage of the SRF (Space Reconnaissance Force) to save humanity from the brink of extinction, electing to journey outside his solar system to the vast universe beyond. While he possesses superior circumstantial judgment, he tends to come off as reckless, and his jump-the-gun nature probably doesn't help matters. His childhood friend Reimi gives him and earful over it regularly.

Edge is the main character of the game and the one you control at all times.

Reimi Saionji

Sex: Female
Age: 19
Race: Earthling
Weapon: Bow
Voice Actor: Misato Fukuen (JP); Laura Bailey (EN)

A young lady born into the illustrious Saionji household, Reimi has studied archery since childhood and now stands toe to toe with other masters of the bow. For all her kindness and consideration toward others, Reimi is extremely hard on herself, and sometimes the pressure gets to her. Like Edge, she was selected at a young age for the maiden voyage of SRF, and takes part in the journey into deep space. There, she serves the team as a level-headed navigator and a source of support for Edge.

Faize Sheifa Beleth

Sex: Male
Age: 18
Race: Elderian
Weapon: Rapier
Voice Actor: Mitsuki Saiga (JP); Jason Liebrecht (EN)

A young man from the planet Eldar who belongs to a planetary exploration team. He considers etiquette very important and treats those with qualities he lacks with due reverence. He is a man of talent, able to wield symbols that other Eldarians would need a high level of study to master; he even designed on his own a small shuttlecraft for use in exploration. Faize is an extremely logical thinker, and takes on a harsh tone and hard stance toward irrational people, but at heart he's an affable, genuine sort of guy.

Lymle Lemuri Phi

Sex: Female
Age: 15
Race: Lemurisian
Weapon: Wand
Voice Actor: Miyuki Sawashiro (JP); Hunter MacKenzie Austin (EN)

A girl who lives in the village of Triom on the planet Lemuris. She lost both parents at a young age and was raised by her grandfather, the village elder. She was born with a talent for Symbology, and often summons a creature called Cerberus, who she considers a friend. She's basically a pampered child who's fond of mischief; ever since a certain incident, she's closed the world out and continues to speak like someone younger than her age. Still, she's tough at heart and her energy keeps her standing tall even in trying circumstances.

Bacchus D-79

Sex: Male
Age: 32
Race: Morphis
Weapon: Portable Launcher
Voice Actor: Hiroki Yasumoto (JP); Travis Willingham (EN)

A scientist from a planet that boasts the latest in cutting-edge technology, Bacchus has transformed himself into a cyborg - a decision made of his own volition. He has a strong sense of justice, but does not allow it to affect his emotions, taking a more ethics-oriented approach to integrated reasoning. His brain is original but supported by a logic co-processor, often leading him to unemotional conclusions. Since the full mechanization of his body, he has labored to master all fields of mechanical engineering. He has the ability to use optical camouflage to conceal himself.

Meracle Chamlotte

Sex: Female
Age: 16
Race: Lesser Fellpool
Weapon: Claws
Voice Actor: Megumi Toyoguchi (JP); Carrie Savage (EN)

A dynamic young Lesser Fellpool. Her birthplace is unknown, possibly Roak considering her race. Meracle is brimming with energy, she is bright and amiable, though hates being left alone. She apparently crash-landed on Earth after inadvertently stowing away on a spaceship attracted by the smell of food; she boarded the ship which then took off with her in tow.

Crowe F. Almedio

Sex: Male
Age: 21
Race: Earthling
Weapon: Twin Swords
Voice Actor: Kenji Hamada (JP); Kyle Hebert (EN)

Belonging to the first expeditionary batch of SRF as Edge, Crowe attained the rank of Captain for Spaceship 001: Acura at just 21 years of age due to his exceptional talent and leadership abilities. He has been childhood friends with Edge and Reimi, and the latter two treat him as their elder brother. He is a hardworking and determined man who will tackle any obstacles in his way. His quick thinking allows him to remain calm, analyzes and solves the many situations he's put in. Crowe's reason for joining the SRF is to help open a new chapter for Earth and mankind, after the depressing effects of the devastating war.

Myuria Tionysus

Sex: Female
Age: 22
Race: Morphis
Weapon: Two-Handed Staff
Voice Actor: Hitomi Nabatame (JP); Tara Platt (EN)

On a honeymoon voyage with her newly wedded husband Lucien, Myruia's ship is accidentally caught up in a battle between Crowe's Acquilla and an enemy craft. The ship takes critical damage, and Lucien ejects Myuria into an escape pod just before the ship explodes. She confronts Crowe with a frigid suspicious demeanor, but behind her face lies a heart filled with sadness ad fear.

Welch Vineyard

Sex: Female
Age: 18
Race: Earthling (apparently)
Weapon: N/A
Voice Actor: Tomoe Hanba (JP); Laura Bailey (EN)

A sub-operator for the Calnus, Welch is primarily in charge of Item Creation Support Work for the main characters. She is not on board the ship however; she communicates through subspace transmission from the USTA headquarters on Earth. Though Welch is incredibly smart, she is also very frank, and a highly energetic person. Strangely, no member of the SRF has ever met her directly, and her date of birth, her family records and her previous assignments in the organization are shrouded in mystery.

Arumat P. Thanatos

Sex: Male
Age: 26
Race: Elderian
Weapon: Laser Scythe
Voice Actor: Hiroki Touchi (JP); Kyle Hebert (EN)

A born soldier, Arumat was 17 when his troop was decimated in a battle with the Phantoms, leaving him as the only survivor. A breakdown in the structure of his muscle cells has presented him with an ultimatum: give up his current body, or die an early death. Unsurprisingly, he has chosen to live out what time he has left as a fighter, partly as redemption for the men he has lost along the way.

Sarah Jerand

Sex: Female
Age: 19
Race: Featherfolk
Weapon: Staff
Voice Actor: Noriko Rikimaru (JP); Erika Weinstein (EN)

One of the few winged Featherfolk on the planet Roak, Sarah grew up in virtual isolation, never even setting foot outside her village until she was assigned as an envoy to the kingdom of Astral. The Featherfolk are revered as sacred, but Sarah's isolation has left her so ignorant of the outside world that even her own people constantly worry about her. Her simple, almost naive kindness is completely guileless.

Stephen D. Kenny

Sex: Male
Age: 40
Race: Earthling
Weapon: N/A
Voice Actor: Naomi Kusumi (JP); Michael McConnohie (EN)

Stephen is a famous, former air force pilot who was the first person in Earth's history to break the speed of light, dubbing him "Lightspeed Kenny". His former achievements have allowed his appointment as commander of the USTA's (Universal Science & Technology Administration) moonbase. He is a passionate man eager to support evolution into the Star Ocean as Earthlings look for a new place to call home.

Stephen shares the same surname of both Claude C. Kenny & Ronyx J. Kenny, possibly making him one of their ancestors.
