This guide is meant to help those looking to learn a little more about each of the characters and how to recruit them. It was originally meant to be a small part of larger guide that would cover everything but there was far too much information and Steam‘s character count forced me to create an individual guide specifically for the characters (working on others).
 
 
The order in which they are presented is based strictly on how they are listed in the Official Guide and please keep in mind that some of the recruitment descriptions could be considered spoilers so tread carefully (though most have been worded in ways to avoid this).
 
 
I’ve also added colors to their names to make it easier to determine their Innate Elements at a glance.
 
 
Combined Tech Skills are listed at the bottom.
 
 
Images are from the Official Guide and were edited in Photoshop to Steam‘s standards.
 
 
You can use the “CTRL+F” command to search for a specific character’s name quickly.
 
 
Be sure to Like and Favorite accordingly. I am working on more guides and will continue to add and format the current ones until I am satisfied. Feel free to leave any comments, suggestions or questions.
 
 
Hope it helps in some way!

Power up cyborg hair to generate a laser saber.

Lvl.7 - StrongArm - Single Foe
A secret weapon banned by the Porre Army.
How to Obtain: With Grobyc in party, inspect the coffin on Level 2 of Chronopolis.

 
 

Grobyc is the intimidating cyborg assassin affiliated with the Porre Army. But Grobyc will only serve those who are stronger than he is, so you can recruit him by defeating him. That's easier said than done. Grobyc uses awesome bionic power to attack, and his Tech Skills display his cyborg abilities to full extent. He's a great fighter to have in your party, with adequate Element casting abilities.

The self-proclaimed Hero who can't pay his rent, Pierre is something of a phony at first. Notice how he slips in an out of that faux accent? Pierre is one of three characters that will guide you to Viper Manor, but what a trip it will be. However, once you equip Pierre with the Hero's Medal, Hero's Shield, and Hero's Blade, he truly does become a great fighter!

How to Obtain: Dependent upon which form Pip takes: Devil or Angel

 
 

As Luccia mentions, Pip will eventually "evolve" into one form or another, a little angel or a little devil. This growth is dependent on what color Elements you cast the most often. Whenever Pip uses an element or has an element used or him, the game keeps a hidden tally. Pip changes Innates according to the element most used by or on him. If the Innate changes to Red, Black or Green, he turns into a little devil. If the Innate changes to Blue, Yellow, or if it remains White, then he takes on the form of a little angel. Due to Pip's constant evolutionary status, his Lv. 7 Tech Skill acts more like a "hidden feature" than other character's Lv. 7 Tech Skills, and is only available during your current play-through of the game. His unique Level 7 Tech Skill reflects his new form and new Innate. This change usually occurs around a Star Level of 40. With continued use in battle, Pip changes again. His final form occurs based on what elements he uses or absorbs after that. If his Innate changes to that of the opposite form (from Red, Black or Green to Blue, Yellow or White), then Pip's wings change to a rainbow color and he learns the CanonCannon Tech Skill. If you don't use Pip enough, then his Lv.7 Tech Skill will be Pounce+4, the same as his Lv.3, but with more power.

 
 
 

βš”οΈ Combined Tech Skills

Two or more characters can attack simultaneously under the right circumstances. First, all characters must be in the party. Second, all of them must be at the Element Power required to perform their individual Tech Skill at the same time. And third, all characters must have at least one point of Stamina. 

For example, Guile must be at Element Power 5 and Sneff must be at 7 for them to perform their Double Tech attack. The Combined Tech attack will replace the character's regular Tech Skill in each character's Grid, and the move can then be executed. Be aware that the Element color of a Combined Tech attack may differ from one or all of the character's original Element color.
