Tears to Tiara 2 comes home this October from the fine folks at Atlus, and when you buy the strategy-RPG you’ll find more then an excellent game waiting for you. Everyone who preorders the title will receive a 31 page art book showcasing the unique character designs and artwork of Naru Furudera.
On top of all of that, we also have some new art and character background to share with you all, beginning with Hamil, Tear to Tiara 2’s empire challenging hero.
The sole survivor of Hispania’s royal bloodline, Hamil is a reserved and kind boy. His father, an Imperial noble and governor of the province, was killed seven years ago for the crime of plotting a rebellion. As the son of a traitor, Hamil has lived under the Empire’s watch ever since.
In order to overthrow the Empire, Hamil lives under the guise of a weak and cowardly boy, but in truth, he is a composed tactician. He has inherited his father’s will and is waiting for an opportunity to destroy the Empire and earn Hispania’s independence. His secret, furtive desires summon Tarte.
Tarte is a girl from the spirit world and the goddess of prosperity and war who has been worshiped since ancient times. Though called a deity, she is in truth a daughter of the elf tribe, who walked the earth before mankind.
She may sometimes be arrogant for a goddess, but is compassionate and direct. Every day she wishes to become a wise and benevolent goddess who teaches and guides mankind. She has been with Hamil’s family for ages and, in accordance with his wishes, decides to help fight against the Empire. Due to her lengthy stay in the spirit world, she has strong aspirations for the earth and is full of curiosity
Kleito is the caretaker of the fortress-city of Tartessos. Despite her appearance, Kleito isn’t human, but a daughter of the strongest and wisest of all ancient beings: the dragon tribe. The few who know her true identity address her as the dragon god.
Although she tends to keep quiet, she is intellectual and excels as a caretaker. And though she is well-versed in ancient folklore, she does not speak about the secrets of the dragons.
Monomachus is a martial-arts instructor of a vocational school. As Enneads’s aid, Monomachus teaches the village children. When he was younger he was known as the strongest warrior in Hispania and even after he retired from the battlefield he served as an advisor to the late governor.
Monomachus values earnest fortitude and valor and often favors military action.
Daphnis, a former slave who works as Elissa’s servant. Daphnis was bought by Elissa’s family at an early age and freed, and now willfully waits upon Elissa. As her bodyguard, he dresses as a girl in order to follow Elissa wherever she goes.
Although indecisive and timid, Daphnis shadows Elissa-who often finds herself in dangerous situations due to her personality-and assists her in whatever way he can.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels.
When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.
