Rulutieh (voiced by Ai Kakuma)

Utawarerumono Zan

The youngest princess of Kujyuri, a vassal state of the great empire of Yamato. A lovely noble girl, she is seemingly delicate. In order to deliver a tribute to the Mikado, she will head to the Imperial capital as a messenger. She has a pet hororon bird named Cocopo.

Jachdwalt (voiced by Takuya Eguchi)

Utawarerumono Zan

A man widely renown as a master swordsman. His use of the long sword, which is so lightning-quick that it leaves an afterimage of each stroke, has earned him the nickname “Shimmering Jachdwalt.” Jachdwalt serves no master and wanders from country to country utilizing his skills with the sword.

Utawarerumono Zan is due out for PlayStation 4 on September 27 in Japan.
