Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgement characters introduced

by: Nathan -
It has been 4 months since the announcement of Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment being brought to the digital download scene on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network by publisher Konami, and we're just now getting a look at the character's pretty little faces. Of course by pretty I mean scared and haggard, because the world of Vandal Hearts is war torn and violent, which is just the way I like my RPGs thank you very much. Below are brief descriptions of the characters and way below that you'll find they're portraits. There is still no specific date for the release, so Xbox 360 owners should be looking for Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment in the marketplace later this month, and PlayStation 3 owners should find the game available for download in September.

Tobias Martin: Tobias is a war orphan, and a ward of the Church of Restoration. He isn't sure of much in life, but he thinks he knows right from wrong - a belief that will soon be put to the ultimate test.

Luce Valenci: Luce is a knight of the kingdom of Balastrade. Like many youth of her generation, she grew up without her parents. Now suffering a low point in her once-stellar military career, Luce tolerates no nonsense and keeps few friends.

Altyria Jono: Altyria is a farm girl from the other side of Balastrade's border. When conflict brews, and Altyria's loved ones are
scattered, she finds herself truly alone for the first time, and must learn new ways to survive.

Connor Ganson: Conor is a career criminal at age sixteen, an unrepentant street thief and con artist. He grew up alongside Tobias
Martin, and the two were inseparable friends for years. When Tobias joined the church, Connor declined to follow him, and the two have rarely seen each other since.

Calvin Atrias: Calvin is Tobias Martin's younger friend. Timid and awkward, he rarely leaves the sanctuary of the church. With danger closing in, Calvin must choose whether to stay sheltered within the church walls or risk his life to help defend them.

Gren Silas: Gren is Luce's right-hand man. Known as "Ten-Men Gren" for his enormous strength, Gren is virtually silent, answers to no one but Luce and obeys her every command without question. No one has ever seen his face - or, if they have, they haven't lived to tell about it.

Daldren Gray: Daldren is Balastrade's greatest war hero, and one of the few surviving veterans of the twenty-year war against the rival kingdom of Urdu. Respected across the land for his legendary valor, Daldren still serves in the field to this day.

Kelbrun Hale: Kelbrun is the chief of an infamous bandit gang known as the "Fist of Enkidu." A dishonored war veteran, Kelbrun was stripped of his rank and banished after brutally sacking a defenseless town. His raids and robberies have grown bolder in recent months, and his bandits are better equipped and deadlier than ever.

Shance Aya: Shance is the leader of the "Hellhounds", a relentless cabal of infallible bounty hunters. She is known, among those few who know her, for her murderous bloodlust and delightful sense of humor.

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today unveiled character details
from the upcoming tactical role-playing game, Vandal Hearts: Flame of
Judgment for Xbox LIVE® Arcade and the PlayStation®Network. Vandal
Hearts: Flames of Judgment is the first next-generation installment of
the classic strategic RPG series featuring a swift RPG pace, improved
user mechanics and a rich, character-driven storyline.

The game takes place on the continent of Sostegaria, where a war is
waging between two opposing kingdoms. Driven to defend his homeland,
young orphan Tobias Martin recruits his gang of friends to join him in
the fight for peace. While avenging loved ones however, the crew faces
a threat that is deadlier and closer than they could ever imagine.
Using character customization options, players will experience the
cast evolving and adapting to various styles of gameplay as the
battles carry on. Vandal Hearts has always been known for its strong
and memorable characters and Flames of Judgment is no exception.

Tobias Martin: Tobias is a war orphan, and a ward of the Church of
Restoration. After losing his parents, Tobias grew up on the streets,
stealing and brawling to survive. When the Church offered him an
education, he jumped at the chance, leaving the street life behind. He
isn't sure of much in life, but he thinks he knows right from wrong -
a belief that will soon be put to the ultimate test.

Luce Valenci: Luce is a knight of the kingdom of Balastrade. Like many
youth of her generation, she grew up without her parents - in her
case, trapped in a crooked orphanage. When she grew old enough, she
led her friends in an escape, and then followed her father's footsteps
in the army. Now suffering a low point in her once-stellar military
career, Luce tolerates no nonsense and keeps few friends.

Altyria Jono: Altyria is a farm girl from the other side of
Balastrade's border. Despite being blessed with a loving family,
Altyria grew up apart from her peers, finding solace in reading and
self-education. When conflict brews, and Altyria's loved ones are
scattered, she finds herself truly alone for the first time, and must
learn new ways to survive.

Connor Ganson: Conor is a career criminal at age sixteen, an
unrepentant street thief and con artist. He grew up alongside Tobias
Martin, and the two were inseparable friends for years. When Tobias
joined the church, Connor declined to follow him, and the two have
rarely seen each other since.

Calvin Atrias: Calvin is Tobias Martin's younger friend. Timid and
awkward, he rarely leaves the sanctuary of the church, at least not
alone. With danger closing in, Calvin must choose whether to stay
sheltered within the church walls or risk his life to help defend
them.

Gren Silas: Gren is Luce's right-hand man. Known as "Ten-Men Gren" for
his enormous strength, Gren is virtually silent, answers to no one but
Luce and obeys her every command without question. No one has ever
seen his face - or, if they have, they haven't lived to tell about it.

Daldren Gray: Daldren is Balastrade's greatest war hero, and one of
the few surviving veterans of the twenty-year war against the rival
kingdom of Urdu. Respected across the land for his legendary valor,
Daldren still serves in the field to this day, stamping out threats to
his land and its people.

Kelbrun Hale: Kelbrun is the chief of an infamous bandit gang known as
the "Fist of Enkidu." A dishonored war veteran, Kelbrun was stripped
of his rank and banished after brutally sacking a defenseless town.
His raids and robberies have grown bolder in recent months, and his
bandits are better equipped and deadlier than ever. How he came to be
so successful so quickly is not yet known.

Shance Aya: Shance is the leader of the "Hellhounds", a relentless
cabal of infallible bounty hunters. She is known, among those few who
know her, for her murderous bloodlust and delightful sense of humor.
