Character Creation in Langrisser IV

In Langrisser IV, the character creation quiz is presented by Rachel. She tells Landius that she found a fortune telling book while cleaning out the attic.

How Landius answers each question affects his base statistics, his character class and any starting items.

At the end of the quiz, the player is prompted to press a button to pick a gift from the random rotation.

First, choose two cards out of the following four.

  • Ace (Royal Guard secret class enabled →Question 2)
  • Jack (Path 1 secret class enabled →Question 2)
  • Queen (Path 2 secret class enabled →Question 2)
  • King (Path 3 secret class enabled →Question 2)

Now then, choose from these four in order of most to least favorite.

  • A lush summer plain (Path=Infantry →Question 3)
  • A serene blue sky (Path=Flier →Question 3)
  • A quiet and peaceful room (Path=Magician →Question 3)
  • A majestic mountain shrouded in mist (Path=Priest →Question 3)

Each answer will assign Paths A, B and C of Landius' class change chart to one of the paths above. The classes available on each path are:

Infantry Flier Magician Priest
Level 1 Gladiator Hawk Lord Sorcerer Squire
Level 2 Battlemaster Dragon Knight Mage Paladin
Level 3 Swordmaster Dragon Lord Archmage Saint
Secret Class Hero Dragon Master Hermit Avatar

For more information about how the three paths are positioned on Landius' class change chart, refer to his character page.
