Who, Where, How? – Part 1

==================================== 
1. Annie 
==================================== 
Gender: Female 
Talents: Swords / Martial Arts 
Race: Human 
Joins: All 
 
Asellus, Lute, T260G – Once you’ve managed to reach the side quests, sign up for the Rune Quest in Devin. Get at least 1 Rune and then return to Koorong. On the top level, there is a woman standing in front of the restaurant with orange hair and green clothes. Talk to her, she’ll ask you to go to Despair to get the next Rune. Accept her offer and she’ll join you. 
 
Blue – Sign up for the Rune Quest in Devin. Unlike other heroes, Blue does not need to acquire a rune first. Just go to Koorong’s top level, and talk to the girl with orange hair and green clothes. She’ll ask you to go to Despair and get a rune. Accept her offer and she’ll join you. 
 
Emelia – Annie joins your team very early, and plays an intricate role. 
 
Red – Once you’ve managed to reach the side quests, visit Koorong. On the top level, there is a woman standing in front of the restaurant with orange hair and green clothes. She’ll offer Red information on BlackX over dinner. After a scene inside the restaurant, she can be recruited by speaking to her again outside and telling her that you’re ready for her to join. This is safe to do, as it does not force you to go to the BlackX base right away. 
 
Riki – When you are searching for the Hermit ring, talk to Annie and she’ll join your quest. 
 
==================================== 
2. Asellus 
====================================

Joins: Emelia, Red (Temporary) 
 
Emelia – On your fourth mission, when you go to Trinity, she will be right outside the room you first start in. Go and talk to her. You’ll be attacked, but the monster is fairly easy. 
 
Red – Early in Red’s quest, the Cygnus will be attacked by a pirate ship. Inside one of the passenger’s rooms, Asellus and White Rose will join you until the end of the mission, then depart for good. 
 
==================================== 
3. BJ&K 
==================================== 
Gender: N/A 
Talents: Health Recovery (Non-Mechs), Heavy Weapons (ex. Hyper Blaster)

After you return from every little “adventure” in the early part of the game, you should collect money from BJ&K, in the middle doorway on the Cygnus. Once the ship is hijacked, go back to his room. Defeat the monster in the room, and then enter the room again. Talk to BJ&K and he’ll join you. 
 
====================================

Race: Mystic 
Joins: Blue, Riki 
 
Blue – Once you are on the Rune quest. Go down the pathway in the bottom of Koorong until you see a door with a rune sign over it. Go into the building and ask the head if your being served. Then you can go in and ask Dr. Nusakan about the runes. He’ll join you. 
 
Riki – When you are in the billionaire’s house in Yorkland, fight the demon. Mei-Ling will then send your team back to Koorong. Go down to Dr. Nusakan’s office. Talk to him, explain your problem, and he will join you.

To get Kylin, you have to complete either the Rune or Arcane quest and the Light or Shadow magic quest (one from each pairing). Once you’ve done that, go to Devin and talk to Rei. She’ll warp you to Kylin’s Paradise. Talk to Kylin, take his challenge and defeat him. Talk to him afterwards, and he’ll join your quest. 
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀___________

⠀⠀ _________ 
__/ Runic Duo \___________________________________________ 
| If you are going to get Liza, first get Roufas. Once Roufas joins⠀⠀⠀⠀| 
| the team, right away, get out of there and get Liza. If you get the⠀⠀ ⠀|

| Artists, Liza can get the Dream Super Combo very quickly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀| 
|_______________________________________________________| 
 
Emelia – Liza plays an intricate role in this quest. She’ll join you very early along with Annie. 
 
Red – Talk to Annie and she’ll offer to take you to Shuzer’s base. Once you’ve recruited Annie, simply head back into the restaurant and speak to Roufas. Liza will come out from the back. After their conversation, Roufas decides the three of them need to split into teams. Annie declares she’s 
with Red, so Roufas says to pick one more – Liza or himself. Take Liza because you can still get Roufas afterwards through his normal recruitment method at Mu’s Tomb. (Note: As Red, Liza must be recruited BEFORE Roufas if you want them both!)

Note: Mesarthim will not join you if you have Silence, but not the other way around – you can recruit him after you already have her with no problems. 
 
Asellus – Mesarthim joins you early in this quest. She does leave again, so to get her back, simply go back to where you released her inside the Lord’s Manor after completing the Dark Labyrinth and she’ll join your quest again. This will require defeating the Kraken blocking the path both on the way in and out, however. 
 
Others – Go to the Lord’s Manor in Owmi and go to the bottom floor. Talk to Mesarthim and she’ll join you IF you have another Mystic in your team.

Race: Human 
Joins: None 
 
Alkaiser can be activated only when all Humans in the party are dead or status-inflicted. Be warned: while Alkaiser is a powerful boost, using Alkaiser’s form means Red will not level up in any way at the end of that battle!

==================================== 
Gender: Female 
Talents: Mystic Skills 
Race: Mystic 
Joins: Asellus

Red – Talk to him in the Cygnus and he’ll join you briefly. Once you can, talk to Annie and recruit her to go to the BlackX base. Once you’ve got Annie, head back and you’ll get a choice of having Roufas or Liza join. You can get Roufas here, but it’s recommended you take Liza and then go to Mu’s Tomb. There he’ll join you if you’re on the Rune quest, and you’ll have both Roufas and Liza.
