Dark Knight
A general of Palamecia's army, he starts his road to the top by overseeing the building of the Empire's airship in Bafsk after Borghen is defeated; after that, he claims the throne once Emperor Palamecia has been killed once. However, who would ever guess that the true identity of the Dark Knight is (gasp!) Leon! (See also Leon, Jobs:Dark Knight)

Gareth
See Ricard Highwind.

Gordon [GUEST]
The cowardly prince of Kas'ion helps out from time to time, especially when his new girlfriend Queen Hilda (who used to date his brother Scott) is in danger. However, he's not much of a fighter. Scott was killed by the Palamecia Empire and he vows to get revenge however he can - although his lack of bravery unfortunately stops him from doing it in conventional ways. (See also Jobs:Knight)

Guy [HERO]
(Aliases: Guy (NES NA), Gus (PSX)) The large buddy of Firion, Maria, and Leon. A bit slower on the uptake (and speaks like a caveman), but that's about it. He can apparently also talk to beavers. (See also Jobs:Monk)

Hilda
The princess of Fynn - soon to be queen of Fynn when her ailing father dies - has relocated to Altair due to the pressures of the Palamecia Empire. Even her boyfriend Scott, prince of Kas'ion, can't do much to stem the tide - till the four heroes come! Scott dies early in the game and the role of boyfriend is (get this) taken over by his brother Gordon.

(Aliases: Leila (NES NA), Layla (NA), Reila (JP)) A pirate queen who lures the heroes on her ship with a promise to take them to Deist; however, she sics her buddies on them halfway through.

(Aliases: Leon (NA), Lionheart (JP), Leonheart (JP)) Maria's lanky brother is the fourth and basically strongest of the four warriors.

(See also Dark Knight, Jobs:Dark Knight))

The Dark Half fell into Hell, where he gained his power and became ruler of Pandaemonium, while the Light Half ascended to Arubboth, Palace of the Heavens, and became its ruler. He brought Minwu, Ricard, Josef, and Scott to the Heavens to ask for forgiveness from them for his Dark Half's actions.

Palamecia, Emperor [VILLAIN]
(Aliases: Palamecia (NA), Paramecia (NA), Paramekia (JP), Dark Emperor) Ah yes, the evil of evils, head of the super-evil empire. At first it seems like he wants to rule the world, but no! Of course he'll eventually want to destroy it. He signed a pact with Satan to allow him to come back after he's killed. In the JP-only novelization of the game, the Emperor is given the name Mateus.
