Star Ocean The Divine Force introduces party members Elena and Albaird

Star Ocean The Divine Force, the newest entry in the series, will feature dual protagonists Raymond and Laeticia. Choosing Raymond will follow a scenario that’s more science fiction oriented while Laeticia will be more fantasy – and their perspectives will color the main narrative.

Joining them are Albaird, an obstinate knight who serves Laeticia, Elena, Raymond’s cool-under-fire first officer, Nina, an “Iatrimancer” trying to cure a deadly disease, and Midas, a brilliant “semiomancer” that lives as a hermit.

In new video digests, Square Enix highlights a few scenes featuring Elena and Albaird.


“Elena is First Mate of the merchant vessel Ydas.

She manages the operation of just about the entirety of the ship, and her vast knowledge and cool demeanor have earned her the complete trust of Raymond and the crew.

Elena is constantly surprised by Raymond’s proclivity for recklessness, but all the same she holds a high opinion of his leadership qualities.”

Albaird Bergholm

“A childhood friend of Laeticia’s, Albaird now serves her as a knight of the Kingdom of Aucerius. He excels at semiomancy and the wielding of chakrams.

His strong sense of loyalty to Laeticia means he is never far from her side. Albaird’s left arm is covered down to his fingertips, and he occasionally gestures as if to protect it.

He meets Raymond while escorting Laeticia on her secret journey. He does not trust the new arrival, but loathe to go against Laeticia’s wishes, he reluctantly allows the young captain to join them.”
