Who is your favorite hero?

You can only pick one. I am not necessarily looking for who would win in a fight, just who you like best.

I like Dyne the most. I wish we had more backstory to him.

I would say Ghaleon, but only if you include both Lunars.

But I always liked Mel, and Dyne/Laike is cool too...I don't know who to vote for. lol

It seems like the vote is very much split so far. I would probably go with Dyne/Laike as a close second. My vote was for Mel.

I voted for Lunn because he had the most interesting boss fight. Fighting a boss battle with a solo Jean not long after she went through her "change" was really cool.

Dyne! He's the penultimate Dragonmaster! I also like how you get to see him in two different ways. First as the hero of Lunar, a young man full of ideals. Then as an older man, no longer in any positions of power, just adventuring as he loves to do while still keeping to his old oaths to protect Lunar, watch over Luna, and so on. Most hero stories stop after the first one.

Also went with Lunn. So much potential, not enough story for him.

Man, that is so weird. Everything about Lunn's story that IS known is repulsive. Even the people in the dojo who apparently don't know about his cult say that he's sadistic. Add to that the child abduction and abuse, and I always felt there was an undertone of sexual abuse in Jean's story too -- if not by Lunn then by his underlings.

I haven't voted because I like most of the TSS group and Leo as well. It did occur to me, reading Sonic#'s comment, that it's interesting to compare Leo to Dyne/Laike. As an adult, Leo has the idealism that Dyne would have had as a young dragonmaster-aspirant, although his role as White Knight is different from that of a Dragonmaster. His reaction to learning about the false Althena is perhaps reminiscent of Ghaleon's reactions to what he (Ghaleon) considered Althena's folly (in both main versions of the Lunar 1 storyline), first cracking and then acting to bring down the current power structure even though he'd held a key role in it.

Actually, Leo at the end of the game is probably close to what Dyne would have been like if he'd publicly "retired" as Dragonmaster rather than being presumed dead. I had some other thought along these lines but seem to have lost it.

I always <3 Leo. That's who I'd aspire to be if it were all real.

Also, while Lunn was a great villain, he had no redemption. I actually like the storyline change that was done in the translation, where Jean didn't really forgive him, but just tried to move on. KF

You all make quite compelling arguments. I see there has been no love for Borgan. What's the problem? Do people not appreciate obnoxious, pathetic, self-centered sadists?! lol

Well, Lemia, Mel, Leo, and Mauri were the only ones who were completely heroes. Mel did have a pirate past, though he moved past it when he became a 'hero'. Leo and Mauri were manipulated/controlled, but Leo at least still pursued what was right himself, even though he was part of a larger organization that (unknown to him) was preparing for something awful.

Borgan, like Lunn, I thought had no redemption. He was in control of himself when he got the power of the Black Dragon, and he was in control of himself when he sent all those people to slave away in the mines. KF

Ghaleon easily. He had the most depth by far. Dyne would be my second favorite though.

I was caught between Leo, Ghaleon and Mel.
But Ghaleon won out. :3

I couldn't decide between Dyne or Ghaleon at first...but I chose Dyne because he was (as far as we know) good through and through. Shining defender of the world. Dyne.

I changed my vote to Leo. Reading those translated Hiromi Hosoe short stories has reminded me of how much I've always loved him as a character. Lunn can suck it.

I guess I've always liked Mel because of his duality. He is a reformed man, who cast away his pirate past and became a proud father and Governor of Meribia. It's just a great story.

Yeah, Mel's a nice counterpart to Dyne/Laike, going from an outside-the-law scoundrel to a respectable official. While Laike isn't exactly a scoundrel, he's not all about enforcing the law (or whatever passes for it); he finds Kyle's protection racket hilarious rather than stamping it out.

This sort of thing is why I haven't voted in this poll. Too many good options.

I voted Ghaleon - he was the one that captivated me the most. I love most of the heroes from all the games - but his story is one that really intrigues me.
