Codex Gamicus


Game series Phantom Dust
First appearance
Alias: See list of names

He doesn't need to speak

This is the main character for Phantom Dust. Since being on the surface for so long he has forgotten his own name. He is referred to as the protagonist outside of the game but once you begin the game you must pick a name for him.

With a building rivalry between the Protagonist and Edgar he scours the Surface looking for answers. With his fast learned profencinecy to use the Dust the Protagonist has the ability to soon find the answers to all the questions he has.

The Protagonist never speaks the entire game. He only gasps or yells to show emotion. Aside from using skills to solve problems he is void of emotions.

Jumps in multiplayer games. Also, the protagonist's "kick" type skills have a much wider hitbox then any other character.
