Unicorn Overlord Characters and Social Activities Details Released

The team at Vanillaware and Atlus West have released new information around the characters and social activities coming to their tactical RPG Unicorn Overlord.

An ally of the protagonist, Gilbert serves as the crown prince of Drakenhold. His father, the king, was slain fighting the Zenoiran army. Not one to take things sitting down, Gilbert is secretly amassing a force with the aim of restoring the kingdom to its former glory.

Another ally of the protagonist is a survivor of the Cornian royal family, Virginia. She is the niece of Queen Ilenia, and is the older cousin of Alain. After Cornia fell, Virginia fled to Drakenhold.

Also joining the protagonist’s side as an ally, serving as the former leader of the Tricorn Mercenaries Berengaria. She is widely feared as a deadly warrior, establishing her own band of mercenaries that became a powerful force – until she disbanded the group and disappeared.

Aramis, meanwhile, is a mercenary from Drakenhold hired by the Zenoira army. With elegant speech and affect, he is an ally to the protagonist that possesses skill with the blade.

Unicorn Overlord will also have a number of social activities – scope out the full list below:

  • Rapport -The degree of affinity between characters is expressed through the Rapport stat. When characters spend enough time together, their Rapport level will increase. Certain character pairings can also trigger special Rapport Conversations.
  • Rapport Bonus -Rapport is increased primarily by having characters fight within the same unit. If you form a unit with characters with high levels of mutual Rapport, you gain a Rapport bonus.
  • Taverns – Rapport can also be built by sharing meals at taverns in the larger walled cities. If there are characters whose friendship you want to cultivate, why not invite them to a tasty meal?
    The number of participants and the amount of Rapport received vary based on the meal course chosen.
  • Gifts – Characters assigned to guard a town can be given gifts. People like getting stuff, it turns out—gifts will build the guard character’s Rapport with Alain, particularly if the gift is tailored to their likes and dislikes.
  • Ring of Covenant – The Ring of the Unicorn held by Alain has a counterpart, the Ring of the Maiden. Max out Alain’s level of Rapport with a character, and you can choose them to receive the Ring of the Maiden and perform the Rite of Covenant, in which both parties pledge fealty to each other forever. The number of potential companions is vast, but only one will be chosen…
