Sahad is a cheerful 41 year-old fisherman who find himself stranded alongside Adol. He accompanies Adol in trying to find his way back to his home and family, and wields an anchor in battle. Laxia is the 19 year-old daughter to the noble Roswell family. She is well-versed in ancient plants & animals and wields a rapier.

The game takes place on the cursed Siren Island, which has become home to several ancient and ferocious creatures, some which have evolved to gigantic size. You can see some of these creatures in the artwork and screenshots in the gallery.

Update:

Similar to recent games in the series, different characters have different attack styles with differing effectiveness on various monster types. Adol's slash attacks work well against soft and squishy monsters, Sahad's blunt heavy attacks should be used against armored enemies, and Laxia's range is useful for flying types.

Some enemies will enter a 'Break' state when their weakness is exploited, allowing for further damage and can cause rare items to drop.
