"For a first rate adventurer, it comes with the territory!"

The young Justin (ジャスティン) is the main protagonist of the Grandia story. He is an adventurous young boy who sets out to be an adventurer as his father and grandfather were before him. He is the childhood friend of Sue and always adventures with her and Puffy around their hometown of Parm.

Appearance and Personality[]

"I'm NOT alone! You're all with me! Spirits! Here I come!!"

Justin has long red hair that flows down his back, some of which is hidden underneath his blue hat and trademark goggles. He has blue eyes and his design resembles an average human. Justin wears a blue, one-piece costume that upturns just above his knees. He sports a green sheath on his back for his sword. He wears beige gloves, a burgundy scarf and a pair of tan shoes complete with white shinguards.

Justin is best described as an impulsive youth with a moral core. He is often scolded by both his mother and Sue for acting rash in certain situations. His drive comes from his curiosity and will to learn about the world around him. He believes in keeping his friends close, while at the same time being protective of them. He often resents submitting to authority, which sometimes gets both him and Sue into trouble.


"Let's go! Let's all go together! Yaaaaahhhhhh! Come oooooonnnnnn!"


Justin always looked up to his father who was also an adventurer. His biggest accomplishment was discovering a large amount of species on the Old Continent. His father then unexpectedly dies one day, although never revealed, on an adventure when Justin was only young, leaving him in the care of his mother Lilly. Since that day, Justin has treasured his father's memento: a green stone with ancient and foreign symbols. Justin was convinced that it was the real fabled Spirit Stone from the fabled Angelounian legend. The Parm museum Curator noticed this and had high hopes for him. Justin had always loved adventuring with his friend Sue and her pet Puffy, who was actually a creature Justin's father discovered one day during his travels.
