Star Ocean 5’s flirty archer Emmerson gets a character trailer

Every JRPG needs that “old” guy in the party to instill his wisdom and blunt opinions on the events at hand. At the age of 41, ancient in JRPG years, Emmerson fits that bill for Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness.

Emmerson relies on a crossbow in battle, fighting from a distance and backing up Fidel and friends from the rear lines. Why a crossbow is still considered viable technology in a universe dominated by starships and laser rifles is beyond me, but maybe that has something to do with his age. Either that or he just does it for style points, which is also a legitimate train of thought in a JRPG.
