He enjoys tinkering and playing with assorted junk and machinery to create odd inventions.

He became an Etone (slayer of Reapers/Wels) to avenge his mothers death, and at the recommendation of his mentor, Bishop Stone. His younger sister, Primera lost her voice while screaming at the side of her dying mother. Billy blames himself for her disability, and devotes his daily life to raising her.|
Rico is a giant demi-human who was created through disastrous biological and genetic experiments. He lived in Nortune, the imperial capital of Kislev, in D Block, also known as the prison encampment of Kislev. He is not treated like a prisoner, however, due to his phenomenal strength. He gained a wide range of fame when he became the three-time champion of the Nortune Battling Arena due to his strength. |
He uses his amazingly powerful fists and hands. Strong, tough, confident and proud, Rico proves to be a formidable opponent, and more importantly ally.
Granddaughter of "Old Man" Balthasar, and daughter of Nikolai Balthasar, Maria and her gear, Seibzehn, serve as Shevat's defence force. When she was younger, both her and her mother were kidnapped by Solaris in a bid to blackmail her father, Nikolai, into designing the Wel-Gear hybrids for them. Seibzehn was the first model completed; Nikolai programmed it to fly to Shevat, carrying Maria within it to safety. |
In hand-to-hand combat, Maria is nearly useless, having to rely on her remote control to call Seibzehn to attack her enemies. Once inside her gear though, she is a force to reckon with, nearly as powerful as the famed Xenogears.
Created during the Zeboim Era, Emeralda is a nanomachine colony, built to aid humanity in the wake of the genetic breakdown that caused infertility in most Zeboim citizens. However, Emeralda is instead put into a stasis-like state, and it is nearly four thousand years before she's discovered by the party. |
Emeralda can morph her body into many deadly instruments that she uses in battle, making her a ferocious fighter. However, having spent virtually her entire life in a deactivated state, she doesn't know much about the world, and is childlike in her interactions with other people, depending heavily upon Fei.
Initially mistaken as a stuffed doll belonging to Marguerite, Chu-Chu is a member of a race that migrated to Shevat after the formation of Solaris drove them out of the forests they once lived in. She is infatuated with Fei, a fact that creeps him out somewhat. |
Able to grow to gigantic proportions, Chu-Chu doesn't need a gear to fight, instead stomping, slapping and pounding away at enemy gears with whatever part of her body she wishes. Whilst she has no deathblows, her Forest Dance ether can actually heal Gears in battle.
|Referring to himself as the "Seeker of Power," Grahf appears before Fei throughout the game, seeking his power. Though not initially apparent, Grahf's history closely interwinds with Fei's. However, Grahf doesn't often fight him directly, instead offering powers to other antagonists - power which often drives them mad.|
|Mentor and close friend to Bart, Sigurd has dedicated his life to protecting the last in the line of the Fatima family. He and Bart each had lost an eye upon the Yggdrasil a few years prior to the game. He always tried to keep his past a secret to his wards, as it is quite complicated; though in the course of the game, his true identity must be revealed...|
|Marguerite Fatima is the current Mother of Nisan, and also directly related to Bart as his cousin. Being some of the last of their lineage, she and Bart share a very close bond, and though she can be childish at times, she is able to prove herself a very strong young lady.|

|Kahran is a very high-ranking and powerful officer of the Solaris army. He seems to have a singular obsession with combatting and defeating Fei, though his exact reasoning for this remains unknown for some time. Throughout the game, he is seen challening Fei, but ultimately being defeated.|
|Miang is not one character, but many. She is an agent of Deus, created to shape the course of human history to make the events lead to Deus' resurrection. When one Miang dies, another one comes into existence; or rather, another adult woman is posessed by the spirit of Miang. The new Miang always retains the memories of the previous one, as well as taking on the characteristic purple hair and eyes.|
|Big Joe is a curious character that makes various appearances before the party at different points in the game. His unique mannerisms make him all the more strange, though his presence is appreciated late in the game when he sells some of the best available equipment.|
|A hooded, enigmatic figure who appears to the party throughout the game. Often giving advice to Fei, his history and ties to the game's protagonist remain a mystery for much of the story.|
|Hammer is a rat/human hybrid demi-human initally met in the D Block. Early on, he befriends the party, assisting them through the prison, but he becomes a turncoat when Krelian tempts him with a grand reward.|
|Jesse Black, or Jessiah, is a rough ex-member of the Elements of Solaris. He's also the father of Billy Lee Black. As part of their on-going feud, Bishop Stone turned Billy against his own father, completely unaware of the truth of the matter. It takes him quite some time to prove himself to Billy and the rest of the party and to get the record straight.|
|Random, destructive and uncontrollable, Id is Fei's secondary identity formed during his tragic experiences as a youth. Id's emergence seems to be caused by extreme distress, causing Fei's physical appearance to change, as well as the color of his Gear.|

|Krelian's intense knowledge of nanotechnology has given him a lot of power in the empire of Solaris. Though others maintain an image of power to the public, Krelian is the one who truly pulls the strings. With his power of technology and influence, Krelian seeks to resurrect Deus.|
