Tactics Ogre: Reborn has a lot of characters. Protagonists, villains, villains who become protagonists, and protagonists who become villains. As will many strategy RPGs, it's possible to amass quite the army.

Some of these characters will join you automatically, but most other characters have some requirements that you'll have to fulfill first. These range from keeping them alive in a battle to more complex, sometimes infuriating methods.
