I couldn’t find complete info on this in any FAQ. What are all the characters each main can recruit, and what are their costumes and personalities? Also, can you give LP values for them all?
Here is the guide I made for myself to post at the boards if someone asked. I’ve been lazy about submitting it. I’ll get the exact LP values later. I’m watching something. But first the LP values. Anzan (22), Armand (21), Armic (14), Edel (14), Francis (19), Grace (16), Henri (12), Hiro (14), Iskandar (17), Josef (7), Judy (10), Kong Ming (15), Kurt (17), Laura (15), Marie (8), Michelle (6), Mordeus (9), Musol Yanii (14), Mythe (13), Norff (13), Nuage (17), Pharr (8), Platyphyllum (20), Rebecca (11), Roy (20), Ruby (18), Sapphire (10), Silver Girl (15), Thomas (19), Tiffon (13), Vearst (22), Ventus (16). That’s all of them. Although after completing the entire game LP isn’t as a big factor as I thought it would be. Still a factor, but ah well.

Whee! Thanks! One other thing I couldn’t find (at any site) is what the non-main characters look and act like (other than Tiffon, who I did find info on). Can you tell me some one-sentence stories? :moogle:
Their roles can be rather small and they alter depending on the quest they are in. Heck sometimes they cameo. Michelle has a cameo in Ruby’s quest early on. Heck not just your party members. Story characters can have roles in multiple quests. I don’t have time to give them right now sorry. Not that my explanation skills are good. You could try posting the question at the U.SaGa board at gamefaqs. Maybe people will help you with explanations while I am off. And they’ll probably explain better than I could anyway.
