Original appearance:

Tales of Vesperia (2009)

Yuri Lowell (ユーリ・ローウェル, lit. Yuuri Rooueru) is the main character of Tales of Vesperia, the tenth major release in the Tales Series.


Yuri can be identified by his sarcastic and cynical personality, possibly due to the way the nobility treated the people of the Lower Quarter. He seems to enjoy teasing others, but he does develop a strong bond of friendship with his close friends becoming something of an older brother figure. Unlike many main characters in the Tales series, Yuri has a more fully-formed personality.

Coming from the imperial capital, Zaphias, Yuri was forced to leave his life in the Lower Quarter behind to pursue a thief that stole the blastia core, a precious relic that was required for regulating the area's water supply. His pursuit of the thief led to him being imprisoned in the castle dungeons, but he managed to escape. After escaping from one the cells, he continued his journey with Estelle, a young noblewoman, and Repede, his faithful dog, for the sake of the common people. His journeys have him crossing paths with new people, places and thrilling adventures as it eventually escalated into a quest to save the planet.

Role in RakenzarnEdit

Yuri makes his debut in Chapter 6: Bad Blood.

After Kyuu and the Nutsy Guild make their plans, their next destination is the Da'fur Region. Guildmaster Goku explains to the brigade to go to Riveras Village within the large Blissing Forest and meet up with Yuri Lowell, who happens to be their old friend (and somewhat very familiar with Kite, Noel, and Kanon).

Upon reaching the village, the brigade is attacked by a strong monster called the Shadow Wind. Fortunately, Yuri (and the timely arrival of Asuna and Setsuna) arrives at the scene and aids them to defeat the monster. Yuri then leads the brigade to the village chief, who may know the answers to find the Plague Core within the region.

Yuri is also a recruitable character, but is also missable. If the player's alignment is Neutral, they're able to recruit him after talking to the village chief. The other alignments, however, will not and Yuri merely wishes the brigade good luck, though he will aid them whenever they need him the most.

Yuri is among the best Glass Cannon types. He's able to equip both swords and axes for different effects and damages. His skills consist of balanced one-hit and multiple attacks, making him a force to be reckoned.

However, Yuri's major weakness is status ailments and Energy elements. Another weakness is that his skills tend to drain his Rune Points almost too quickly.
