They have targetted Milla since she was just a child and their true. The relationship between Jude and Milla was developed incredibly at least, can't wait to play as Muzet and play Tales of Xillia 2 next year!.
Even when someone with a crossbow is targeting him, he doesn't lose his cool. As someone who has almost completed his medical doctorate this makes sense. However, he's according to Leia always been like this Millia thinks it is because of Leia and her "sparing time!
Some such as Alvin and Leia would argue that he's too nice. Best summed up and Lampshaded in the "Footprints" skit after the party realizes that Agria had been stomping on his head while he was unconscious: What is wrong with her?! Why would she do that? Maybe she was trying to apologize? Saying we got off on the wrong I'm going to chalk this one up to a concussion. You don't know how close you came to getting another boot in your face. Is unaware of Leia and Elize's crushes on him. Older Than They Look: He doesn't look it at all.
On the other hand, he sounds a lot younger than he looks, and he's also shorter than some expected in comparison to his looks. He's about 5'4", which, while not abnormal for a boy his age, is shorter than the baby-faced year-old hero of Tales of InnocenceRuca. Some of his fist weapons look like this. Whenever he's thinking he has a habit of tapping one side of his forehead, usually accompanied with a head tilt. Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The sensitive guy to Alvin's manly man.
Anybody who's so much as contemplating studying medicine will tell you that it requires a lot of brains. Jude is a complete shrimp when compared to any of the other Tales leads, even those who are the same age as him. And Swallow Dance, especially if used multiple times in a row, can function as a Hurricane Kick!

First she dies, but even when she comes back, she takes on the title of Lord of Spirits, disappearing from the world. His ability to use his knowledge can get uncanny at certain points in the story.
Jude and Milla's Relationship? - Tales of Xillia Message Board for PlayStation 3 - GameFAQs
His "Evasion Ability" is essentially this. His cooking skill is often complimented. He's the one that does most of the cooking according to skitsand is the feminine guy to Milla's masculine girl, displaying more empathy and sensitivity throughout the game. He's 15 and in residency as a doctor close to finishing his medical school graduation thesis at the start of the game. He's surrounded by Maxwell herself, an incredibly shifty mercenary, his Hot-Blooded Childhood Frienda little girl with incredibly powerful spirit artes and a weird talking doll, and Ilbert the Conductor himself.
And he's taking everything amazingly well - takes some pretty shocking things for Jude to freak out and he recovers fast even so. When the game was first unveiled, Jude didn't sound like he was anywhere near puberty.
Since then, Tsubasa Yonaga 's voice seems to have changed somewhat. Just compare his line in the first trailer to his ones in the fourth, for example. Jude thinks the best of people no matter what.
This can bite him in the ass, but Character Development has him temper it with his experiences; still thinks good of the world and people, but is more aware of the darker side.
Is eventually considered one by Gaius. Alvin Alfred Vint Svent Voiced by: If I do betray you again, then you're welcome to strike me down by your own sword.
That's why, please let me come with you. Though powerful and charismatic, Alvin is ridiculously untrustworthy and hides a cool and calculating personality beneath his joshing smile.
His special ability Charge allows him to combine his gun and sword, increasing the power of his artes and even changing them. His Support Skill Breaker is used to break the guard of a defending enemy. He'll stab you in the back so many times you could swap his character model for Revolver Ocelot 's and nobody would notice the difference but, at the same time, he's a surprisingly nice guy who means well. Mostly an Pragmatic Anti-Hero, but puts a foot into Nominal Hero territory once or twice when he's at his worst.
Eventually develops into more of a traditional Pragmatic Hero. After finally being done back-stabbing the group for good, Alvin decides to make up for what he's done with whatever he can do. Not particularly long, but long enough to count. For the same reasons as Jude. It is later revealed that as a citizen of Elympios, Alvin does not have a functional mana lobe and cannot create mana, essentially making him unable to use Spirit Artes at all.
It's established ridiculously early on that Alvin is not to be trusted and he soon proves to have a serious case of Chronic Backstabbing Disorder.
Yet it causes him a fair deal of angst because, since he was raised as a child spy, he doesn't know any other way to live. To add to this, Alvin does not want to betray people.
He only betrays people because Exodus has the medicine his mom needs to live.
He doesn't want to work for them but he can't go without it. To make it worse: Alvin's mother dies anyway because Isla was secretly poisoning her. All of Alvin's reasons for being evil were for naught. I can't keep living like this. Develops one towards Elize.
Played with, because it's implied by the latest story trailer that he sees himself as this to Jude, but The Hero views him more as just being a bit weird. It eventually gets flipped around when you realise that Alvin is much less adjusted to reality than Jude due to his lack of being able to form real attachments. By the end though, he becomes one to Elize in an anti-role model kind of way.
He's the most battle-hardened and Blood Knighty of the party. He seems to rather rather enjoy kicking Mooks about. It's revealed late in the game that the Svent family is this but Alvin doesn't consider himself a noble due to all he had been through by that point.
Does this to Isla when he suspects her of poisoning his mother to death. He claims that his mother wrote about the poison in her letters, but Isla immediately refutes that claim while accidentally admitting to the deed. Was raised as a child spy, thus explaining his Chronic Backstabbing Disorder.
It's so bad that at one point he has to plead with the party to let him continue traveling with them, and promises to let them kill him if he betrays them again. And he still betrays them one last time! Won't hesitate to attack you when your back is turn, try to shoot you when your running, or at his worst attack someone who won't defend themselves.
At first, but it gradually deteriorates as people become wise to his tricks. Somewhat, as there's a bit of thing going on between him and Presa. He used to date her, which is why there's so much UST between them. Being the only party member for a while until Rowen joins that's actually worldly, Alvin pulls this off when dealing with Jude and Milla after joining up with them early in the game. Double Reverse Quadruple Agent: It's generally safe to assume he's working for at least three sides at any given time.
He acts as one for Jude in his story. This makes Jude snap out of it and attack Alvin, whereas Alvin blames Jude for making him shoot her. Nobody in the group once lets him off the hook for the moments he betrays them, and constantly point out how they have every right to not forgive him but want to believe he truly is a good person. All he really wants is to cure his sick mother and take her back home to Elympios, and his actions are ultimately motivated by whatever he thinks is most likely to make that happen.
How appropriate, then, for one of his costumes to be just that. The Friend Nobody Likes: Come the final chapter and he's definitely this; between all the backstabbing he did, shooting Leia who was previously one of his supporters, and spending a lot of time as a Jerkass they mostly just keep him around because Jude is that nice and insists on giving him yet another chance. Of course, by this point he realizes it and is working to make up for things.
Does he ever hold his gun upright? Not doing so seems to be a family trait. Get a Hold of Yourself, Man! Supplementary materials reveal that when Alvin was 12, he walked in on Gilland and his mother. He spends a good portion of the game seemingly playing every side of the conflict, nonchalantly betraying and returning to the party so frequently that "Liar" becomes a de facto nickname for him with Elize and Jude.
If there is a virtuous side to his behavior, it's that he's usually sincere about his loyalties and why he switches sides. Unusual for the series in that he isn't using that as a cover, he legitimately is a Hired Sword. Alvin denies that his love for cats has anything to do with certain perversions Nicely put, Alvin's constant betrayals and the way he worms his way back into the team after each one marks him out as a complete and utter C.
Any obviously romantic part? Was shoved aside into sidequests. But they still ended up together and married and all those shenanigans. Namco heard some complaints about their romance being non-existent to out-of-nowhere in the post-credits scene.
When the F Arc was created, we suddenly had Asbel stuttering and stammering around Cheria, blush at everything about her and lots and lots and lots of the party shipping the two.
It was too much, too heavily put on and they made it seem even more like a poor excuse to put the two together as a couple and call it a done romance. Those who thought that Asbel-Cheria was perfectly subtle in the main arc and was overblown for the 'idiots' who 'didn't get it' in F Arc and those who thought Asbel-Cheria was a sudden last minute hook-up in the main arc and consequently shoved down their throats in the F Arc.
That's what Xillia and Xillia 2, respectively felt like to me. Xillia has no proper romance in it, Milla and Jude have no chemistry together, I do not believe any romance there, nor that anything would come from it.
Xillia 2, in turn, suddenly upped the shipping moments in Jude's Episodes and they were so overblown, it felt very, very awkward to watch - I felt like I was watching a very common scene from a very bad harem anime. It once again did not make me believe there was actual romance there.
Too awkward, too forced and is ultimately doomed, anyway. I have nothing against doomed romances, but in Jude-Milla's case, it's not heartwrenching or even made much of. They know Milla has to return to the spirit world and, while it's nice that they accept it, it almost feels like they don't care.
Oh, here only for a specific amount of time? Considering how Milla even mentions that her creating a physical form takes a ton of mana, I highly doubt she could keep doing this. In fact, given that she's a spirit, I was thinking that maybe they would put some mention about how she'll outlive Jude and how she might deal with that. Look at Harvest Moon Animal Parade. One of the bachelors is the Harvest God and he's initially against dating the female character, cause he knows that he'll outlive her and doesn't know if he would be okay with that, grieving for her after her death.
But he has scenes where he mentions that, when she dies, he'll love the nature she loved and similar. As said above, neither of them seems to give a crap that Milla will ultimately have to leave. Honestly, Namco needs to learn how to write better romances. Out of all the romances in the Tales games I've played, not a single one was there, that I believed. Well, there was one: Asch and Natalia from Abyss. And we know how that ended, right? Asbel probably didn't even think of these things, but his mother was urging him to get married and Cheria tended to be the girl he thought of.
Nonetheless, that's what 'suddenly' made him self-conscious about it. That being said, and straying back on topic, I never felt any romance between Jude and Milla either. In the first game, I felt that Jude did have a puppy-love crush and admiration for her strength for Milla, but that's all I felt.
In the second game, it moreso felt like comrades with a unified goal more than anything. Naturally, that tied in to spirits and humans having a symbolic understanding of one another, and I certainly felt that as forced and contrived as it was sometimesbut nothing I would consider 'romance'.
