Was Tales of Zestiria's Latest Character Part of a Metal Band?

Posted by Nicola Hayden

Welcome to the jungle

There's a certain standard that you expect from JRPG party character designs, especially in a long standing franchise where you could swear that you've seen a certain character before. Hero with a sword? Check. Cute female healer? Check. A dodgy looking guy with an uncanny resemblance to Guns 'n' Roses guitarist Slash? Erm, check. Yes, this rough looking fellow is Dezel, the sixth party member in Tales of Zestiria, and its fourth Divine.

Unlike the other Divines, unseen by humans, Dezel is a lone wolf who doesn't like social interactions. Exactly why he endures the company of his ragtag adventuring party is beyond us, then, but it may have something to do with his plot to avenge his friend's killer. Armed with what is described as a pendulum, we doubt that he'll be getting into too many close combat fights. Are you delighted with this unorthodox character design?

The costume designs of Tales games have gone to hell since...ever. But thankfully there's more to a man than how he dresses. Here's hoping he turns out to be an interesting character.
