Don't forget that Bear is wearing Viktor's costume from Suikoden I & II!
I LOVE SaGa Frontier! I was confused at first too, but when I discovered how to level my characters and all the cool skills and spells, I fell in love with the game
Asellus was my favorite character, and she had such a great story. I loved how her ending would change depending on how much of her mystic abilities you used.
I almost finished this game, but when my house was broken into many years ago, this game was stolen
along with many, many other classic games I had (sigh
I might try looking for this game again to try to finally finish it off.
