This is not a walkthrough for Feda remake. I'll just cover
the characters, how and when you get them, their moves
and my opinion about them. If you want a walkthrough, 
take a look to Jon waholic's on gamefaqs.

                                   *****************
                                   *Main characters*
                                   *****************

- They are the two main characters of this game. It's up to you
  to choose which side they will join. Note that if they are killed
  in battle, it's game over. Brian and Ain are the best characters of
  this game, always in the frontline. 


* Brian Stelbart:
Race   : Human
Class  : S-fighter
Gender : Male
My opinion: The best character of this game, by far. High level in every
            Stats, good moves, he can kill almost anything in one blow,
            even bosses. If Ain avoid every attacks, Brian takes only 1 HP
            damage per hits. He is one of the few characters who can resists
            enemies special attacks. A funny thing is that all enemies on screen
            will follow him wherever he goes, and they will only attack him, 
            even if they're close to a dying character. Use it to you're advantage,
            by using Brian as a bait to draw the enemies where you want.


Special moves: Sword impulse  - 8 MP  / Range 2 / 1 enemy
               Atemi          - 9 MP  / Range 1 / 1 enemy (Faint effect)
               Gaia strike    - 20 MP / Range 3 / up to 25 enemies

* Ain MacDougal:
Race   : Wolfring
Class  : S-fighter
Gender : Male
My opinion: The second best character of this game, Ain has lower Attack
            and defense power than Brian, but he has an incredibly high 
            agility. He avoid attacks almost every time !!! And with a
            a good defense accessory, he become invincible. His Hou getsu zan
            can kill almost every ennemy in one blow, and has it costs only 6 MP,
            you can use it every time you attack after about half of the game,
            when he gains more MP.

Special moves: Hou-getsu-zan - 6 MP / Range 2 / 1 enemy
               Mine-uchi     - 9 MP / Range 1 / 1 enemy (faint effect)
               
                                  ********************
                                  *Neutral characters*
                                  ********************

- The neutral characters are your basic fighters. They joins you 
  regardless of reputation, and most of them will form the "body"
  of your army.

* Dora Systeel:
Join after the prologue.
Race    : Foxring
Class   : Archer
Gender  : Female
My opinion: As she is an archer, she has low HP and defense. Her special
            move deals no damage, but she does critical hit almost every
            time she attacks. She gets better when she gain her new crossbow
            with a range of 3. She is quite useful if you want to keep a law
            reputation.

Special moves: Bring bind - 5 MP / Range 3 / 1 enemy (no damage, stun effect)

* Dan Darlest:
Join in area 1's cave.
Race    : Lizardman
Class   : Swordman
Gender  : Male
My opinion: A strong character, with high HP, attack and defense power.
            His weak point is his movement, as he'll often be behind the
            rest of your team. It's best to use him if you play defensive.
            His hammer swing is effective, but once again, it's range 
            makes it difficult to place in battle.

Special moves: Hammer swing - 8 MP / Range 1 / up to 4 enemy

* Christopher Deigood:
Join after area 2's first battle.
Race    : Centaur
Class   : Trooper
Gender  : Male
My opinion: A fast character, who can attack from long range. His attack 
            and defense power are medium, so it's best to use him as a
            backup character. I saw him doing a critical hit only once...
            His special attack helps him a lot in battle, too bad he has 
            low MP and a range of 1...
            you'd better remove him once you gain Jenny or Lance.
            Even if you use a fast team, there's better characters to use.

Special moves: Toe Stomp - 8 MP / Range 1 / 1 enemy

* Roiss Hegkmeyar:
Join in area 2, After meeting Ryoukan.
Race    : Human
Class   : S-fighter
Gender  : Female
My opinion: A good character, but quite fragile. She has low HP and
            low defense, and her attack power is just medium. What 
            did I say she's a good character then ? It's simple, she
            has two special moves, is fast and is perfect to finish 
            Dying enemies group. She is quite versatile and can be used
            in lots different roles. But never put her in frontline.

Special moves: Flint layer  - 10 MP / Range 2 / 1 enemy
               Turn slash   - 10 MP / Range 2 / up to 5 enemies

* Shishimaru:
Join in area 3, when entering eastern town (Yannik)
Race    : Leo
Class   : K-swordman
Gender  : Male
My opinion: Ah!!! one of the few great fighters of this game! Shishi
            is as strong as Brian, as many HP and a good defense. 
            You can kill almost any enemy in one blow with his special move.
            And to finish with it, he often blocks enemy attacks and does
            critical hits quite often.

Special moves: Battouga Iainuki - 10 MP / Range 1 / 1 enemy

* Jeda Clowney (and Libiteena):
Join in area 3, after Yannik's port battle.
Race    : Gersitar
Class   : Dragoon
Gender  : Male
My opinion: A flying fighter who is quite useful in the begining
            of the game, but You'll get better flying fighter later.
            He has quite low HP, but great attack and defense power.
            He often blocks attack and does critical. His special move
            can be weak against wind resisting enemy, as it deals wind damage.
            
Special moves: Thunder breath - 8 MP / Range 2 / 1 enemy

* Aria Karmainleik:
She's located in the western house, in area 4.
Race    : Elf
Class   : Nurse
Gender  : Female
My opinion: Hmmm...I don't know...As the enemies will only attacks Brian,
            there's no need to take her in your party as she can't attack.
            There's other healer, such as Ryoukan, who are better than her.
            The only useful spells she gets is chakra, who replenish MP jauge
            of one character. It can be useful... but, it's no use to take her
            in fights...

Special moves: Heal   - 3  MP / range 1 / heals 12 HP to one character
                      - 5  MP / range 2 / heals 28 HP to one character
               Aura   - 7  MP / range 2 / heals 10 HP to 5 characters
                      - 12 MP / range 3 / heals 20 HP to 5 characters
                      - 30 MP / N/A     / heals 30 HP to party
               Chakra - 20 MP / Range 2 / heals 20 MP to one character


* Konory Rafrecia:
Join in area 5, after Ain is cured of poison.
Race    : Alsidea
Class   : Civilian
Gender  : Female
My opinion: A strong mage who can drain MP, and water magics are quite useful.
            She's weak, like every mage, so put her behind a strong warrior,
            like Brian or dan. But there's better mages to use, like Gust.

Special moves: Water magic - 6  MP / Range 2 / low water damage to 1 enemy
                           - 16 MP / Range 2 / medium water damage to 5 enemies
                           - 20 MP / Range 2 / High water damage to 5 enemies
                           - 34 MP / Range 3 / Strong water damage to 13 enemies
               Spark magic - 2  MP / Range 2 / low wind damage to 1 enemy
                           - 10 MP / Range 2 / medium wind damage to 5 enemies
               Drain       - 1  MP / Range 2 / drain MP from 1 enemy

* Stinger:
Join in Area 6, before the gate battle.
Race    : Human
Class   : Gunner
Gender  : Male
My opinion: The best long range fighter of this game. He often does critical,
            and his normal attack has a range of 3. His special attacks
            combine well with Brian's, has he can finish weakened enemy.
            He can deal quite a good amount of damage, but he has a low
            defense.           

Special moves: Bolt fanning - 18 MP / Range 3 / up to 25 enemies

* Tobikage:
Join in area 7, after the communication center battle (north empire base).
Race    : Armed wing
Class   : N-hound
Gender  : Male
My opinion: Weak weak weak. He is weak in every aspect, exept in agility.
            He can dodge easily, but has he can't deal any damage to enemies,
            even with his special move, he his worthless. The passage
            where you must kill Rasetsu with him only is Fun, as it takes
            around 15 turns to kill him. Why playing with him? huh... I wonder
            ... Because he is very stylish?

Special moves: Musou-shuriken - 10 MP / Range 2 / up to 13 enemies

* Meranusu:
Race    : Gargoyle
Class   : A-trooper
Gender  : Male
My opinion: One of the best fighter of this game, you should always keep him
            in your team. He can fly, has wide movement and attack range, 
            a defense bonus cuz he can fly nad a good defense. His critical
            hit rate is medium. With his special move, you can kill almost 
            anything in one blow. I can't see any weak point, really... Oh yes,
            his special only has a range of one.

Special moves: Paralyse claw - 9 MP / Range 1 / 1 enemy

* Bolbo:
Race    : Armed loid
Class   : U-weapon
Gender  : hmmm...male? even if he stays in the girls room...
My opinion: A real Tank! !!! Bolbo is the Strongest character of this game,
            even stronger than Brian. His weak point is...that he can only 
            move one case per turn !!!! You can only use him if you play with
            a defensive team, by teaming him with Dan and Berserk for example.
            he can use his special move 5 times when you get him, and everything
            hit by his storm breath is immediatly torn into pieces...

Special moves: Storm breath - 11 MP / Range3 / up to 13 enemies

                                    ****************
                                    *Law characters*
                                    ****************

* Eris Woodland (and Tom):
Race    : Alsidea
Class   : Nurse
Gender  : Female
My opinion: A good healer... too bad she doesn't have the healing spell.
            Exept for her Aura spell, you don't have any reason to put her
            in your party. If you want aura, you better take Aria insted of her.
            Note that she can't attack. She will be particulary useful when 
            you must form a defensive line, as she can cure many people at the
            same time.

Special moves: Aura      - 7  MP / range 2 / heals 10 HP to 5 characters
                         - 12 MP / range 3 / heals 20 HP to 5 characters
                         - 30 MP / N/A     / heals 30 HP to party
               Antidote  - 5  MP / Range 2 / Cure status problem
               Exorcism  -    MP / Range   / Kills one undead enemy
               ??????    - 5  MP / Range 2 / ???????

* Elle Northwind:
Race    : Elf
Class   : Sorcerer
Gender  : Male
My opinion: A real killer ! I don't like mage, but as he can use his max
            spark magic when he join your team, he is deadly. He becomes 
            a little weaker when you progress in the game, but he is a good
            choice if you want to kill single units. Forget his magic shield 
            skill, as it is too expensive and magic is not that strong anyway.

Special moves: Spark magic  - 2  MP / Range 2 / low wind damage to 1 enemy
                            - 10 MP / Range 2 / medium wind damage to 5 enemies
                            - 15 MP / Range 2 / high wind damage to 5 enemies
                            - 20 MP / Range 3 / Strong wind damage to 1 enemy
               Water magic  - 6  MP / Range 2 / low water damage to 1 enemy
                            - 16 MP / Range 2 / medium water damage to 5 enemies
               Magic shield - 16 MP / Range 2 / protect 5 party members from magic

* Shane Wreidback:
Race    : Kulanuse
Class   : W-fighter
Gender  : Male
My opinion: A good character, with a strong attack power but 
            with a low defense and very little HP. Use him carefully
            for quick raids against enemies group, but when you do so,
            be sure to kill them, or he is dead. 

Special moves: Nose dive - 12 MP / Range 2 / up to 5 enemies

* Jenny Rockwell:
Race    : Centaur
Class   : Trooper
Gender  : Female
My opinion: coming soon ^^

Special moves: piercing lance - 10 MP / Range 3 / 1 enemy

* Arby Hcszeool:
Race    : Karkal
Class   : B-fighter
Gender  : Male
My opinion: coming soon ^^

Special moves: Raising blow - 14 MP / Range 2 / up to 13 enemies

* Richard Balthukus:
Race    : Dragonewt
Class   : Swordman
Gender  : Male
My opinion: coming soon ^^

Special moves: Fire breath - 10 MP / Range 2 / 1 enemy

* Shim Ems:
Race    : M-head
Class   : K-swordman
Gender  : Female
My opinion: coming soon ^^

Special moves: Flame shot - 12 MP / Range 3 / 1 enemy

                                    ******************
                                    *Chaos characters*
                                    ******************
- Those are the characters who will join you if you slaughter
  everything in your way, without accomplishing mission's objective.
  They are more specialized than other characters, it's best to use
  them depending of your playing style. An all chaos party wouldn't
  be very effective in battle.  


* Ryoukan:
He is located in area 2, in the house west of the map.
Race    : Human
Class   : So-Fighter
Gender  : Male
My opinion: A really useful character, not as a fighter, but as a backup.
            Use him to be Brian's shadow, following him everywhere and healing
            him. His darkwave spell is 100 % accurate, so it is really useful.
            He often does critical, and can sometimes blocks enemy attacks.
            He has a medium defense, so put him behind Brian, just in case...
            Note that he is the only one who possess a full healing spell...

Special moves: Heal      - 3  MP / range 1 / heals 12 HP to one character
                         - 5  MP / range 2 / heals 28 HP to one character
                         - 9  MP / range 3 / heals all HP to one character
               Dark wave - 12 MP / Range 3 / reduce enemy HP to 1
               Antidote  - 5  MP / Range 2 / Cure status problem


* Teita Blade:
Join in area 3, in the "desert eye", the place located north of the liberation army's base.
Race    : Griffis
Class   : A-trooper
Gender  : Female
My opinion: A really good character, with the highest movement value of the game.
            She has High HP, MP and defense value. Her attack is only medium, but
            she does critical quite often. She tend to block most attacks too, and 
            as she fly, she has a defense bonus, so she can endure lots of pain.
            Her magics are quite useful at the begining of the game, but gets useless
            as you progress. She is still quite useful.

Special moves: Fire magic - 3  MP / Range 2 / Low fire damage to one enemy
                          - 12 MP / Range 2 / medium fire damage to 5 enemies
                          - 18 MP / Range 2 / high fire damage to 5 enemies

* Sonia Bluemoon:
Join in area 5. After Ain has been cured, travel to the forest again.
Race    : Dark elf
Class   : Witch
Gender  : Female
My opinion: Hmmm... I hate her. Death magic never works, magic shield is
            useless because magic damage are weak, and all her attack magics
            are weak, when you get her. The only good magic she has is fire lvl 4,
            as it kills most ennemies in one blow. But for 24 MP, it's quite an
            expensive kills. All fighters can do that for a lesser cost. And her
            whip attack is so weak that it never deals more than 2 HP damage.
            Forget her.

Special moves: Earth magic  - 10 MP / Range 2 / Low earth damage to 13 enemies
                            - 18 MP / Range 2 / Medium earth damage to 13 enemies
               Fire magic   - 3  MP / Range 2 / Low fire damage to one enemy
                            - 12 MP / Range 2 / medium fire damage to 5 enemies
                            - 18 MP / Range 2 / high fire damage to 5 enemies
                            - 24 MP / Range 3 / Strong fire damage to 1 enemy
               Death        - 12 MP / Range 2 / kills one enemy
               Magic shield - 16 MP / Range 2 / protect 5 party members from magic


* Lance Slayders:
Join in area 6, after the bandit's hideout battle.
Race    : Centaur
Class   : Trooper
Gender  : Male
My opinion: Lance seems to be an improved version of christopher. He is superior
            to him in every way, exept in agility. He sometimes does critical hit,
            but, if you must attack with him, use his special. It has a good range
            and become quite powerful near the end of the game. He may seems weak
            when you get him, but after a short training, he will be very strong.

Special moves: Knee crusher - 12 MP / Range 2 / 1 enemy

* Berserk:
Join in area 7, after the armory base battle (south base), search the north wall.
Race    : M-head
Class   : M-swordman
Gender  : Male(?)
My opinion: He is a powefuler Dan. He has all his strong and weak points, but amplified.
            His HP are incredibly high, as his attacks and defense. But like Dan, 
            he tend to stay behind your team. But if he reach the enemy, he will
            be a real killer.

Special moves: Hard knuckles - 8 MP / Range 1 / 1 enemy

* Shelly Laqusomacus:
Join in area 7, go west in the forest of illusion, you'll met her.
Race    : Wolfring
Class   : S-fighter
Gender  : Female
My opinion: One of my favorite characters, she works like Ain, with a crappy
            defense. She is quite fragile, so you better be careful whan you 
            use her. Shelly is perfect for quick assault, as she can easily
            kill in one blow. With a defense accessory, she become quite decent...

Special moves: Gennei zan - 10 MP / Range 2 / 1 enemy

* Gust Darknoa:
Race    : Human
Class   : Wizard
Gender  : Male
My opinion: One of the few mage I used in my party. he has lots of MP, and 
            earth magic are quite strong, and hits many enemies. Like every mage,
            put him in the back row and never expose him to enemies. He is also one
            of those characters who are always behind your team, so he is more a 
            defensive character.

Special moves: Earth magic - 10 MP / Range 2 / Low earth damage to 13 enemies
                           - 18 MP / Range 2 / Medium earth damage to 13 enemies
                           - 22 MP / Range 2 / High earth damage to 13 enemies
                           - 30 MP / Range 3 / Strong earth damage to 13 enemies
               Fire magic  - 3  MP / Range 2 / Low fire damage to one enemy
                           - 12 MP / Range 2 / medium fire damage to 5 enemies
               Death       - 12 MP / Range 2 / kill one enemy

There's no good or bad character in this game (exept Tobikage, who's a jerk). 
Each characters, has his role, and should be used in a certain way.
For example, it's stupid to include Dan in a team composed of Shelly, 
Christopher and Lance, for example. They are fast characters who will reach
the enemy before him, and Dan will do nothing in this battle. And if you wait
the enemy to come to you, Those characters will be outnumbered quickly, as
they are quite fragile. 
So you must decide how you'll play the game. Using quick raid attacks with
fast characters (like me), or waiting the enemy with slow and powerful characters.
