In the past, she had a plain and good humored personality, and was a girl rich in sensitivity and love for her family. However, she changed entirely in the wake of a certain incident that occurred three years ago. Her smile is now almost eliminated, and she instead harbors the cold feelings known as anger and hatred. With her original kindness suppressed, and her unexpectedly cold-hearted passion burning bright, she will soon become an existence that greatly shakes the world.

Her left hand, which is covered in bandages, can transform into something inhuman by way of a mysterious power that swallowed her on the day of the incident. Her left hand, similar to a Daemon, exhibits superhuman powers, but seems to possess abilities different from the common Gyoma.

Shigure is a Legate from The Abbey, an organization of exorcists. He is Rokurou’s brother and is the head of the Rangetsu family. They employ a unique fighting style in order to be the strongest warriors.

Even if he is a Legate, he has a freewheeling attitude unappreciated by serious-minded exorcists. However, he justifies his carefree behavior with his prowess in battle.

His sole source of joy is to fight tough opponents and can’t help but laugh when his opponent is stronger than him. Thus, he will never turn down a new challenge if the opportunity presents itself.

Melchior

He recognizes the importance of the exorcists’ missions and that they cannot always be accomplished through good deeds. He is willing to take on the unpleasant tasks.

Magilou

 

  • Gender: Female
  • Age: Unknown
  • Height: 160 cm
  • Weapon: Guardian
  • Fighting type: Witch
  • Tribe: Human
  • Voiced by: Satomi Sato

Tales of Berseria - Character - Magilou

Magilou is a mysterious woman who introduces herself as a “great sorceress” and “Head of Menagerie”, even though their reputation is for “unlicensed witchcraft”.

She is easy going and rather reckless at times. Extroverted and chatty, Magilou could break the ice in any party conversation, but there’s something sinister about her: something in the heartless things she says to Velvet, and the callous phrases she can sometimes spout, that hint at an evil edge befitting the title “witch”.

Magilou’s chatty demeanor hides veiled intent behind gibberish, jokes and lies. Though she seems cheerful enough, there is something of a trickster about her. Occasionally her heartless behaviour can uncover great truths.

Her fighting style is a rear guard type and she is great at fire and water artes.

In melee battles, she transforms her guardian into various forms and fights in a skillful way!

Bienfu

 

  • Gender: Male?
  • Tribe: Malak
  • Voiced by: Nao Nagasawa

Tales of Berseria - Character - Bienfu

A peculiar malak with a rather unique hat.

Bienfu can happily be called an eccentric with its characteristic style and habit of saying “Bieeen” and “Bad!”

Bienfu seems feeble but thrives on adversity and lives its life with shrewd attention and strong intent. It seems Bienfu and Magilou may have crossed paths before, though not in good circumstances, as whenever it meets her, it is incredibly fearful.

Unlike many other malaks who do not have their own will, Bienfu shows its personality with various facial expressions.

MYSTIC ARTES

Mystic Artes are strong special attacks to be executed by consuming Blast Gauge. You can deal high damage to an enemy which play out with a cool animation to show off this powerful Mystic Arte.
