■ Characters

Haku (voiced by Keiji Fujiwara)

Utawarerumono Zan

The protagonist. Kuon saved him when he collapsed, and gave him his name. His memories are gone for the most part, and he is unsure about what kind of person he is. He is a young man who is neither diligent or serious. He is quick-witted and incredibly insightful, however lacks physical strength and fears he would be as good as dead if he was abandoned by Kuon.

Kuon (voiced by Risa Taneda)

Utawarerumono Zan

The beautiful and spirited young girl who saved the protagonist and named him “Haku.” She has the ears and tail of a bewitchingly fine beast. She is lively and clever, but somewhat aloof. She acts as a medic and though she is young, she is confident in her skills. She has left her home town and appears to be on her own personal journey.

Nekone (voiced by Inori Minase)

Utawarerumono Zan

Ukon’s younger sister. Her features still have an immature charm, and though she is intelligent, she overdoes it speaking in honorifics. She is a talented girl, the youngest ever to pass the difficult court exam. Her favorite food is sweet pastries and her hobby is researching ancient matters. She is a fairly older brother-ish girl.

Ougi (voiced by Takahiro Sakurai)

Utawarerumono Zan

Nosuri’s younger brother and his older sister’s supporter. He is still young, but he has a polite demeanor and the looks of someone sharp and able.

Nosuri (voiced by Nozomi Yamamoto)

Utawarerumono Zan

A chivalrous thief who heads a crew named after herself. She is an exuberant, straightforward girl with an orderly appearance and abundant chest you would never imagine of an enemy. Her younger brother Ougi is constantly by her side.

Ukon (voiced by Kentarou Tone)

Utawarerumono Zan

A heroic man that Haku and Kuon become acquainted with at an inn. He is a hearty man with large stature and ample beard, accompanied by subordinate young men. It appears they have come along as guards transporting a tribute to the capital.

Utawarerumono Zan is due out for PlayStation 4 on September 27 in Japan.
