Today Atlus has released more information about their upcoming release of Unicorn Overlord. This one looks like its shaping up to be another amazing Vanillaware title with plenty of depth and features. Today they detailed a few more allies found in the game as well as some of the activities the game has to offer.
First off let’s dig into the new allies:
Virginia (Protagonist’s Ally)
“Today… the Knights of the Rose have their vengeance!”
A survivor of the Cornian royal family. Niece of Queen Ilenia and older cousin of Alain. When Cornia fell, she fled to Drakenhold.
Gilbert (Protagonist’s Ally)
“You’ve quite the grand vision for yourself, seeking to unify the entire continent.”
The crown prince of Drakenhold. Stepping into the shoes of his father the king, slain fighting the Zenoiran army, Gilbert is secretly amassing a force with the aim of restoring the kingdom.
Berengaria (Protagonist’s Ally)
“I told you plain, I don’t want you near me. Now go home and bury yourself in your beloved books, why don’t you?”
Former leader of the Tricorn Mercenaries. Widely feared as a deadly warrior, Berengaria established her own band of mercenaries and quickly grew it into a powerful force—until the day she abruptly disbanded the group and disappeared.
Aramis (Protagonist’s Ally)
“And I, a simple wanderer. You can call me… Aramis.”
A mercenary from Drakenhold hired by the Zenoira army. While his speech and affect is more elegant than might be expected, no one can deny his skill with the blade.
Next up let’s discuss some of the social aspects of Unicorn Overlord. The Rapport stat shows the level of affinity between your characters. This level will increase when you keep a pair of characters together for a length of time. This can trigger events that will show how deeply the pair have connected with each other. This will come with some bonus in combat as well when they are in the same unit. Rapport can be built up at taverns as well. You will do so by having your allies have a meal together. The amount gained will depend on the meal served, so don’t be cheap, feed your troops well. Lastly, Alain’s Ring of the Unicorn has a counterpart called the Ring of the Maiden. If Alain’s Rapport level is maxed out with a character, you can give them this ring and the Rite of Covenant will take place. This joins the two together, forever. There are many allies, but in the end there can only be one true bond!
