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.

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.

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.

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.
