PLAYABLE CHARACTER INFO ~------------------------------------~ The first beefy section of the guide, this serves as an introduction to the characters. A notice for those who didn't read the very top of the guide, there ARE spoilers included in the descriptions. So when you see this sign: [!SPOILERS!] It means that the spoiler paragraph is coming up. *** Wein Cruz *** Age: 17 Height: 172cm The main character of Growlanser II, Wein is aspiring to become an Imperial Knight of Burnstein. Wein's Ring Weapon turns into a scythe. His father was a treasure hunter, and Wein thinks of him often, especially when visiting ruin sites. Depending on how well you do in the game, Wein will become a Sleeping Lion Knight, a Holy Dragon Knight, or an Imperial Knight. To become an Imperial Knight, you need to get all Mission Complete/Clears. [!SPOILERS!] The mercenary Wolfgang, who is Wein's half brother, killed Wein's father. He is also related to the Zauer family of Zauersberg. [!SPOILERS!] *** Maximillian Schneider *** Age: 18 Height: 183cm After being paired with Wein for the final exam at the Entrance Academy, the two became close friends. Max joined the Academy to become a knight, but not to fight, but to learn battle tactics. He wishes only for peace, and became a politician after he graduated. It was also his father's wish that he become a knight. After his father's death, his mother became ill and now resides in Comsprings, where Max visits every weekend to see her. Because of his time in the army, he is good at developing battle strategies. [!SPOILERS!] Ironically, Max is the final boss of the normal path of the game. He steals the Power Mask from the West Starkberg Ruins and uses it to attempt to control the minds of the citizens. You can choose to join him in his quest for peace or fight against him. Either way, you still have to fight him in the end. (You can only fight him on his path if you let one of your former allies escape.) [!SPOILERS!] *** Hans Bearnt *** Age: 15 Height: 167cm A very outgoing and cheerful person, Hans is first met during Wein and Max's final exam. He decides to join the army after the battle in the ruins. Three years later, he's a knight-in-training under Wein's command. His ring weapon is throwing knives. Hans is an orphan who wishes for a real family. [!SPOILERS!] Hans idolized the chief of Clain Village, who was the last Growsian village leader. The leader was killed by Xenos. [!SPOILERS!] *** Charlone Claudius *** Age: 15 Height: 161cm Chest: 83cm Waist: 56cm Hip: 80cm From Starkberg, Charlone's dream is to become an Imperial Knight. She idolizes Imperial Knight Julia Douglas because she is the only female to ever become an Imperial Knight. Her brother and father live in the Claudius Mansion in Starkberg. Her younger brother, Pietro, is ill, and refuses to get his life-saving surgery done unless Charlone becomes an Imperial Knight. [!SPOILERS!] Charlone can become a Unicorn Knight, part of an all-female squadron led by Julia Douglas, if you don't rest from the poison and after Comsprings, get to Burnstein in 4 days. This causes Pietro to get his surgery done. If you get her date scene (which you need to be an Imperial Knight to get) you will learn that Pietro's surgery was a success. [!SPOILERS!] *** Xenos Langley *** Age: 26 Height: 187cm A retired Grandshill Arena Champion, and a former mercenary and worker for the King of Burnstein. His weapon is a sword. He knows of Riviera's job, only revealing that fact after Riviera reveals it herself. He has a sister named Karene, who works at the hospital in Grandshill. Xenos is very protective of his sister. Xenos was also playable in the first Growlanser game. [!SPOILERS!] Xenos was the one that killed the former village chief of Clain, who was a Growsian. [!SPOILERS!] *** Riviera Marius *** Age: 19 Height: 168cm Chest: 90cm Waist: 57cm Hip: 84cm Riviera is a mysterious woman that Wein meets while saving Agriss from a pack of Yungs. She has a sister named Olivia. Her weapon is a staff. [!SPOILERS!] Riviera is actually a Shadow Knight, a spy for Burnstein Kingdom along with her sister. [!SPOILERS!] *** Carmaine Fallsmyer *** Age: 18 Height: 172 The Light Savior and main character of the first Growlanser. He still works for the king of Burnstein. He has a sister named Louise that really looks up to him. His weapon is a sword. [!SPOILERS!] Louise really isn't his sister. Carmaine was found as a baby, and Sandra took him in. She had Louise later. [!SPOILERS!] *** Brett Varner *** Age: 20 Height: 176cm Found starving in the Time and Space Control Tower, he joins your party out of gratitude for saving him. His weapon is a spear. [!SPOILERS!] You can only get him to join with you if you don't have Lyell join your party. [!SPOILERS!] *** Sereb *** Age: 500 Arieta's constant companion and protector, Sereb is a talking two- tailed wolf. He will protect Arieta from any harm at any cost. [!SPOILERS!] Sereb is the one that commands Wein to kill Arieta before Gevas is reborn. In the battle with Gevas, if you got the Neural Device from Ariost, he puts it on Gevas, and is severely weakened after that battle. He can only join your party if you don't recruit Arieta. [!SPOILERS!] *** Ernest Lyell *** Age: 88 Height: 187cm A former Imperial Knight who was exiled from Burnstein for siding with an imposter trying to become king of Burnstein. He lives in peaceful solitude in the Lost Forest. His weapons are two swords. *** Arieta Lyuis *** Age: 200 (17) Height: 155cm Chest: 82cm Waist: 50cm Hip: 81cm A mysterious Growsian girl that Wein met 10 years ago in the Grasslands near the border of Rolandia and Burnstein. She left him the ocarina that he carries around with him. Arieta's personality strangely seems to change at times. Her weapons are two floating orb things. [!SPOILERS!] She is possessed by Gevas, an evil being. This is why she's been alive for 200 years. Her personality changes are because of Gevas using her body. In the Time and Space Control Tower, you fight Gevas, who has captured Arieta's soul. If you have gotten the Neural Device from Ariost, you can save her. If not, she dies. [!SPOILERS!] *** Wolfgang *** Age: 22 Height: 191cm The leader of a group of mercenaries, his ultimate goal is to build a nation for mercenaries. [!SPOILERS!] He is Wein's half-brother, and he killed his father. His name was Leonard before he changed it to Wolfgang. His plans for his mercenary nation include democracy, of all things. You can join up with him if you get all mission completes up through the Pillage mission (could also be Rural Raid if you also plan to get Arieta) [!SPOILERS!] ~------------------------------------~ VI. BATTLE STRATEGIES ~------------------------------------~ *** Wein *** Wein is an all-around, multipurpose type of character. He learns magic and techs, and has average stats. Keeping him alive is vital to every mission; if he dies, it's Game Over, so keep him healed up. Good thing he learns Cure, though you won't be using much magic with him. The rate at which he learns techs and magic depend on how you answer the questions at the beginning of the game. Wein doesn't have any glaring weaknesses. Good gems to use: Any Hyper-Attack, any Quickness, any Deft Wind. Specific battle strategies: Hyper-Attack and Quickness are necessary in Fire Fly. Rating: 8/10 *** Max *** You only have him for a short time in the beginning of the game, but he's still helpful. He's already mastered Cure and Fire Arrow, which you'll be using a lot. Fire Arrow is a good Imp killer. Downside is, he doesn't have that much MP, so you can't use his magic for that long. His attack isn't that bad though. Good gems: None, really. He doesn't stick around long enough for you to get any. Specific battle strategies: Use Fire Arrow to take out Imps. Rating: 6/10 *** Hans *** Hans is useful because he's a long-range attacker with a low ATW. However, his ATK is really low, so Attack Up is needed to make him more useful. Hans' usefulness comes into play once you get a LV6 New Horizons gem, which makes indirect attacks have unlimited range. Pair that with the LV8 Hyper-Attack you get in the beginning of the game, and Hans is near unstoppable. He becomes unstoppable if you do the cat girl sidequest and get LV9 Transport Wings. He'll be killing 2-3 enemies before other attackers like Xenos can kill one. Hans will end up 3+ levels above everyone else by the end of the game. Good gems: Hyper-Attack, New Horizons, Transport Wings Specific battle strategies: Rating: 9/10 with Hyper-Attack/Transport Wings, 7/10 without *** Charlone *** Your second long range attacker and your first real mage, Charlone has a higher attack than any other character. The only problem is, her ATW is also the highest out of any character. The best way to use her is to cast magic, then attack, then cast magic again, and repeat. She learns attack, curing, and stat raising magic, along with a few attack techs. Good gems: Deft Wind, Quickness, Hyper-Attack, Mage's Aria, Magic Awakening Specific battle strategy: She NEEDS quickness gems for the Escape mission. Rating: 7/10 *** Xenos *** Xenos is like a tank, powerful but slow. Not as slow as Charlone, though. He learns many powerful techs, but no magic. Xenos works well attacking with another character like a non-uber Hans or Carmaine. Good gems: Hyper-Attack, Deft Wind, Quickness Rating: 6/10 *** Riviera *** Your first dedicated mage that you receive. Has a higher intelligence than Charlone, and a wider variety of offensive spells. Her MP is a bit low, so you won't be able to cast too many spells. Adding to that, spells are weak unless you cast them at higher levels, which takes much longer. Casting Cycle Up on her is good. Defense is low too, so try to keep her away from enemies. Good gems: Memory of Alviis, Mage's Aria, Magic Awakening Rating: 7/10 *** Carmaine *** Carmaine is an average character. He doesn't have any major weaknesses, but also has no major strengths. When he first joins your party, he has Cure and Cycle Up, the two spells that you will probably use him for most. He suffers from low MP, however. His strength is decent, not as strong as Wein or Xenos. ATW is decent as well. Overall, an average character. Good gems: Most attack related gems Rating: 7/10 *** Brett *** A generic soldier with the generic attack strategy. He does a decent amount of damage, and is faster than your other heavy hitter, Xenos. Good gems: Any attack gems Rating: 7/10 *** Sereb *** A better mage than Riviera, Sereb is basically a slightly weaker version of Arieta. His ATK is a little higher, and his INT is a little lower. He also doesn't learn any healing spells. Good gems: Any magic gems Rating: 7/10 *** Lyell *** Lyell is a pretty hard character to get... You must do a series of events in the Lost Forest that you can easily miss and beat the Independence Day mission. He is worth it, though. His ATK is strong, his ATW is decent, and he learns a pretty good variety of Techs. He also can learn a few Magic Spells, but you'll mainly be using him to attack. Good gems: Any attack gems work pretty well. Rating: 7/10 *** Arieta *** Arieta is your strongest mage, with the highest INT stat of any character. And magic is what you'll be using her for. Downside is that she doesn't learn any stat-upping or healing magic naturally. It's a good thing her MMP is high, you'll be using her only for magic. Her ATK is the lowest out of everyone. Also be sure to keep her away from the enemies; her DEF is also the lowest. To get her, you have to do a series of events and get a mission complete on every battle she's involved in. Good gems: Memory of Alviis, Mage's Aria, Magic Awakening Rating: 8/10 ~------------------------------------~ VII. NON-PLAYABLE CHARACTER INFO ~------------------------------------~ This section is filled with spoilers, so read at your own risk. *** Karene Langley *** Age: 21 Height: 165cm Chest: 91cm Waist: 55cm Hip: 85cm Xenos' sister and a worker at the Grandshill hospital, Wein first meets her at the Magic Academy. She later sees the man that breaks the Upstream Dam near Agriss, and is captured because of that. When rescued, she helps Wein after he is shot with a poison arrow. She was playable in the first Growlanser game. *** Julia Douglas *** Age: 18 Height: 173cm Chest: 91cm Waist: 58cm Hip: 86cm The only female Imperial Knight, Julia had disguised herself as a man to reach her position. She's idolized by Charlone, whose dream is also to become an Imperial Knight. Julia is the commander of the Unicorn Knights, the all-female squadron. She was playable in the first Growlanser. *** Wallace *** Age: 37 Height: 194cm A general in the Rolandian army. He commands the front lines during the war in the game. He was playable in the first Growlanser. He is also seen in Sandra's Story. He and Sandra stay together in the mountains after he is injured in a battle. Wallace is also the father of Louise. *** Ariost *** Age: 26 Height: 182cm A scientist at the Magic Academy. He makes two pieces of equipment that will benefit you on your quest, assuming you make the right choices. He was playable in the first Growlanser game. *** Eliotte *** Age: 15 Height: 165cm The king of Burnstein, Eliotte is a wise king considering his young age. He likes to dress as a commoner and go out into the towns. He was playable in the first Growlanser. *** Kenshin Reaves *** Age: 22 Height: 175cm The oldest of the three Imperial Knights. Reaves is good friends with Lyell, even though Lyell betrayed Burnstein during the last war. *** Louise Fallsmyer *** Age: 15 Height: 154cm Chest: 81cm Waist: 53cm Hip: 80cm A Growsian girl who's Carmaine's sister. She really looks up to her brother. She was playable in the first Growlanser game. *** Misha *** Age: 16 Height: 157cm Chest: 89cm Waist: 55cm Hip: 82cm A fourth year student at the Magic Academy. She seems to be a little clumsy at times. She was playable in the first Growlanser. *** Sandra Fallsmyer *** Carmaine and Louise's mother, she is a Palace Magician at Rolandia Castle. She is the main character in the mini-game Sandra's Story, which tells of her life from when she was a student at the Magic Academy to when she has Louise. In the game, you can choose to have her marry a messenger or a soldier named Gremio (both choices end in a Game Over), or have her stay with Wallace, which is the correct path. *** Logan *** A commander in the Burnstein Army, he was good friends with Max's father. Logan assists you in the second mission in the game. He's also good friends with Max, as seen near the end of the game. *** Byron *** A rather large commander in the Burnstein Army. He supposedly wanted Wein, Charlone, and Hans dead at the beginning of the game. He isn't seen much after that unless you take the Wolfgang Path. *** Claudius *** Charlone and Pietro's father, he's also the mayor of Starkberg. He seems to be rather sexist, as he was against his daughter joining the army. When she visits after becoming a Unicorn Knight, he tries to force her to stay at home, but she leaves anyway. *** Pietro Claudius *** Charlone's younger brother, he has some kind of sickness that he needs surgery for. He refuses to get this surgery unless Charlone becomes an Imperial Knight. He ends up getting the surgery after Charlone becomes a Unicorn Knight *** Messenger (Elroy) *** Max's messenger that also works for Wolfgang at the same time. He helps frame Wein, Hans, and Charlone for breaking the Agriss Dam. You see him again in Comsprings, but he runs from battle. He disappears from the plotline after this. You see him during the Wolfgang path, still working as a messenger. *** Storm#3 (Lucia) *** A catgirl that escaped from the Magic Academy, Storm#3 is endlessly searching for her mother. There are many battles against her, and also a lot of events. If you do every event and battle, and become her friend, she will give you the LV9 Transport Wings gem, one of the best in the game. Later, you find her mother, Luga, in Zauersberg, along with her father, a human. She goes to her parents, and finally receives a name, Lucia. You unlock the mini-game Sandra's Story if the Catgirl Quest is fully completed. *** Man in Schwartzfals Inn *** This injured man happens to know a lot about the Cruz and Zauer families. He's the one that tells Wein that his father was killed. Later, he says that Wolfgang killed Wein's father. Finally, when his memory is completely back, he tells Wein that Wolfgang is his half- brother. *** William Cruz *** Wein's father was a treasure hunter. Wein's love of ruins comes from him. He ends up getting killed by Wolfgang. *** Olivia Marius *** Riviera's sister, Olivia is also a Shadow Knight. She works more behind the scenes, setting up situations that Riviera completes. She had a fiancée named Karl who was killed by mercenaries during a mission. This event saddened Riviera, who got hung up over his death, more than Olivia, who moved on. *** F0027 *** She only appears shortly in the Maximillian Path. She's a rather large woman that is "married" to Hans. Nothing really important, but extremely funny. ~------------------------------------~ VIII. HOW TO GET ENDINGS ~------------------------------------~ Before the specifics on getting each character ending, here are some general rules: -Never let the character you're aiming for die in battle. However, if you cast Raise on them, their relationship meter won't go down. -During the opening questioning sequence, choose Charisma. This will greatly help you with getting people to like you. -Constantly check towns for events or chances to talk to your group. -Always talk to people in towns. They might have necessary or helpful information. -Use common sense. Some choices are pretty obvious. -Probably the most obvious thing here, but be sure to actually choose the person whose ending you want to spend the day with you. -You have to get the three girl endings before you get any of the guy endings. *** Charlone *** Note: To get this date/ending scene, Charlone must be a Unicorn Knight and Wein must be an Imperial Knight. -When she first joins, choose "(Whoo!
