CHARACTER SPOTLIGHT: Keon Cetin, the Gunslinger
Palasiel Quest has a plethora of characters outside of the 5 main ones featured on the main page. Every few days I will do "Character Spotlights" that will go over a bit more about each character and what they bring to the table when it comes to either the story or the battles. And without further ado, we’re going to continue things with Keon Cetin!
Keon is another one of the five people spirited away from Earth to the world of Palasiel! You’ll soon learn that he’s already been there for a whole year! Whilst waiting for the protagonist to appear he’d quickly taken a liking to Palasiel and made himself comfortable.
Keon is a confident guy who’s super chill. He’s made a little bit of a name for himself around Palasiel as a mercenary and he’s got a lot of contacts. He’s very flirtatious and rarely wears his heart on his sleeve which makes him come off as a rather cunning individual. Keon expressed a strong disinterest in going back home, and would much rather stay in Palasiel, which will cause some tension among the party.
You’ll meet Keon a few hours into the game where he joins up with the Palasiel Rogues to help stop an assassination from occurring. He’s pretty familiar with RPGs with his favourite being Wild Arms V. He’s got a keen sense of justice befitting your standard hero, and due to his past he’s not fond of bullies.
The concept of Keon’s character was inspired by Alvin from Tales of Xillia and Irvine Kinneas from Final Fantasy VIII. Keon’s class is dubbed a "Gunslinger". His role is a mixture of a Bard and Ranger class. Ideally, he’s a support class with the ability to deal technical damage and grant buffs to the party. Since Artes are purchased by the player using Arte Points, one can build Keon as a really potent support character early on, opt for more technical DPS, or a nice balance of the two.
Keon has average stats all around, however the fact that he uses a gun means that he cannot be countered by physical attacks. Using his "Bulletcraft" abilities, he can recover the party’s health and TP with his "Heal Shower" arte. He’s also one of the first characters to be able to target all enemies at once with his "Wild/Crazy Bullet" artes.
Keon becomes particularly useful when it comes to dealing with enemies of a particular type/breed. His "Golden Bullet" skillset allows him to deal a guaranteed critical hit on certain types of monsters, making him ideal when it’s time to go out monster hunting!
And that’s all on Keon! Feel free to ask me any questions about the character in the comments! :)
Next I’ll be going over some of the secondary characters in the game!
