WARNING: Please be prepared of spoilers, as I had no way of writing about this character without mentioning them at all. But if you have no desire or plan to play the game at all, and depend on friends or the internet to read the script, find out information, or such, then please feel free to read on as I will try to make it worthy to be read.

If you want to use my article or quote a part of it, please read this.


Isilud PortraitIsilud Tengille, formerly known as Izlud Tingel (PSX/PS1), is 19 years of age, Gemini sign, and is a Nightblade (or Knight Blade) class that works for the Murond Glabados Church. He is one of the supporting characters of Final Fantasy Tactics: Shishi Sensou (The War of the Lions)– he is a strong and loyal character, believing to his duties and faith all throughout, but this started to form doubts unto him, especially after his encounter with the main character and the later events that he personally experiences. As almost the entire world itself does not recognize much potential from Isilud, as he was barely shown in the game, he does not have much of anything at all. Similarly to Tomoya Okazaki (CLANNAD) and many other “not very popular” characters, there is almost no fan database and comprehensive, wide content about these characters are very difficult to find. Proof of this is that you can barely find any fan art or even alone official images of him, hence why I, sadly, only used his game portrait for the picture. This essay hopes to formulate more discussions and further theories can hopefully be formed amongst the writers and fans about Isilud.

myHeart CIRCLE?

… which is tagged in the Categories to the right (or click here), will from now on be the shrine database for my dedicated top favorite fictional characters, who are:

The CIRCLE will be updated whenever I feel like it, for they are my personal contributions for the fandom, and not official content in any way. They are meant to be just simply for fun. Said fandom materials will be either in the form of literary art, graphical art, or traditional media.

The following is a repost from a former version of my blog, since it is now currently down, this is done to revive this short essay. An early impression I had about a character from visual-novel, CLANNAD.

And further in the entry is a Tomoya fandom discussion that I formed that my previous essay did not render too far.

If you want to use my article or quote a part of it, please read this.


Tomoya PortraitTomoya Okazaki, one of your average “nice guy” protagonists. But unlike the cheesy, shy type who flushes to no end with a sight of a cute person or the cool but arrogant bishounen who has a bad past, Tomoya falls under one of the categories of the true type of “uniqueness.” He is a guy that wouldn’t love you for everything, but he is the kind of person who wouldn’t let you down no matter what. Tomoya is considered a lazy bum or delinquent at school and some students do not like him for his trait to skip classes or always arriving late for them. But in truth, Tomoya has a heart of gold, and deep down, a lonely person. It is always admirable to have to see main characters, with a bad past, but the kinds to never let events or sudden conflicts get to them when facing other people. Instead of having to share his emotions or even show it, he walks with a calm demeanor and even extends an open, warm palm for those who needs help.

Ramza is a trap!

9 02 2008

Apologies for the slow updating of my own blog and to my friends for not having to check their blogs for the past days. I’ve earlier commented in each of the entries I’ve missed out. As for mine, I will soon recover to continue writing random animanga and video game news or reviews after I have the school load off my back. Unfortunately as of late, I’ve been stacked up with projects and work load once more. But we’ll see how much progress I will be able to have before I can recover to turn this to the cheerful blog it was before all my personal PC conflicts.

For you, Mei, soon I shall try out if Onion Knight Ramza shall be able to wear the female items. As mentioned before, I still highly doubt it would work, but if Onion Knights completely have no weapon and armor restrictions, then it just might…? Anyway, look for that since I’m finally going to do it after all the time of wait~ If it possibly won’t work, then how about a portrait of the said image instead? It would be a blow-over it can’t, but a nice picture would just do the trick, then.

I still can’t believe how effeminate Ramza actually is. How many of you out there fallen for this trap? I know I did. The outfit and the hair style of his in Chapter 1 of the game, not to mention those perfectly distinctive curves and gentle face, is questionable to one’s eyes. Compared to all of the male soldiers in the game, he is the only one in that matter of certain style. What are you trying to do, Final Fantasy Tactics Character Designer? (… Hm, speaking of him or her, I’ve yet to catch the name. I’ll look it up later.) … Not that I mind, of course. Heh heh. We all love Ramza.
