We’re already at the end of June, so here we are with another character spotlight.
Alfyn Greengrass is a 21-year-old apothecary in Octopath Traveler. He’s one of the eight main characters you can choose to play as and he is a great asset to your team. He’s a perky guy and seems to have everyone’s best interest at heart. Oddly enough, this is, more or less, what he struggles with throughout his main story.
The moment I heart Alfyn’s voice, I immediately loved his character. He’s adorable and an all-around good guy. While his particular storyline was pretty predictable for me, I loved going through his backstory and having him in battle.
In battle, Alfyn seems to have the most smart-ass comments to the enemies throughout whether he’s attacking or healing someone. It’s great and definitely adds a little more humor to the story. His attacks are also just really well done and can be pretty strong. If I remember correctly, he wasn’t our strongest physically or magically, but he pulled his own weight in battle nonetheless. I’d love to play the game again with him as our chosen character just to see how strong he’d get by the end.
Overall, Alfyn was a great character. He had a fun personality, great moves in battle, and an interesting story. He’s easily one of my favorites from Octopath Traveler.
