Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA is one of the games being highlighted by NIS America at E3 2017, and we have some new info on the many characters you’ll meet in this highly anticipated release.
Adol Christin – He left his homeland, a nameless village in the Europe region, when he was just 16 years old and dated to adventure in the Ancient Kingdom “Ys,” the Land of Mystery “Celceta,” and more. Although young, he is respected as an expert “adventurer.”
He was traveling across the Gaete Sea as a passenger of the Lombardia when the ship was attacked by an unseen giant sea creature. He went missing along with the other passengers.
Dana – A mystical blue-haired girl who appears in Adol’s dreams. Contrary to her elegant looks, she has a wild imagination and acts quite bold, much to the surprise of her peers.
She seems to live in an advanced civilization with no record of ever having existed in the Eresia region. Adol experiences her life through his dreams, but…
Laxia – Daughter of the noble Roswell family of Garman, who was on the Lombardia.
She attempts to act like a humble noble, but her inflated sense of pride and stubborn inclinations make it a fruitless effort. In Castaway Village, where all manner of social status and job classes mingle, she feels like a fish out of water, but she decides to utilize her knowledge about ancient organisms and wildlife to assist Adol.
Sahad – A fisherman from Greek who is a dynamic, generous, and cheerful fellow.
Laxia is often appalled by his frank and sometimes crude outbursts, but he is warm and sincere – even prone to crying when things get too emotional. He is highly knowledgeable about the sea and has his own philosophy about fishing. He has a family to get home to, which is why he decides to help Adol and escape the Isle of Seiren.
Hummel – An enigmatic “Transporter” who goes rogue on the Isle of Seiren.
He takes pride in his work and his serious personality causes him to fulfill any duty that is requested of him. He is also a stickler for cleanliness. He drifted ashore along with a package that he was in the midst of transporting, but keeps mum about both the package and the details of his transportation request.
He possesses a new type of weapon called a “gun” that is described as a small-scale cannon.
Ricotta – A girl who was living on the Isle of Seiren before Adol and the others found themselves there.
Ricotta is innocent to a fault and well-versed in both the island’s geography and the Ancient Species. She gleaned all of her other knowledge and vocabulary from documents and books that drifted to the island shore, so her language skills are sometimes lacking.
She’s been waiting a long time for her father to return from his exploration of the island…
