Tilkis Barone (ティルキス・バローネ Tirukisu Baroone?) is one of the protagonists in Tales of the Tempest.


Tilkis originates from a small island nation far from Areulla known as Senshivia (センシビア Senshibia?), where he is the fourth prince heir to his father, King Aspic Barone (アスピス・バローネ Asupisu Baroone?).

To investigate the mystery of the Spots appearing and causing trouble in his country, Tilkis travels with his bodyguard, Forest Ledoyen, to the capital city of Areulla, Janna. They believe someone with authority in the kingdom is responsible, so they didn't seek authorization before entering. They rescue Caius Qualls and Rubia Natwick from monsters in the Black Forest on their way to Janna. With a shared destination and the authorities searching for them, the two pairs join forces. Tilkis poses as Rubia's older brother to avoid drawing suspicion, and she continues to refer to him as "Dear Brother" in all their interactions, to Caius' annoyance.

In Janna, Tilkis and Forest are cornered by the Warrior Priests while gathering information on the Church, but Forest grants Tilkis an opening to escape. Tilkia reveals Forest's troubled history to Caius and Rubia, and senses that he is trying to put the past to rest. The subsequent rescue mission brings Arria Ekberg into the party, who Tilkis is immediately smitten with.

Some time later in Laurus, Tilkis spots Arria sneaking out of town at night. He trails her to a secret meeting with Albert Mueller and learns that she has been leaking information about their movements to him. He helps her come clean to the rest of the party and ensure them that she is now definitively on their side. When Albert dies in the ensuing battle, Tilkis comforts Arria before letting her grieve in peace.

As the climax of their journey looms, Forest declares that he would like to step down as Tilkis' bodyguard to focus on building relations between Leymon and humans, and Tilkis offers to financially support his efforts. Tilkis later asks Arria if she would come to Senshivia and help exterminate the remaining Spots. He then lays his feelings bare and asks her to stay by his side forever. She can't give a definitive answer to the second question immediately, but he assures her that he will always wait for her.

By the ending, Tilkis and Arria have taken out all the spots in Senshivia, and Forest has retired from service to the royal family. Arria is requested to stay longer by the king himself, and when confronted, Tilkis insists it wasn't his idea. Arria accepts regardless, to Tilkis' joy.

Appearance and Personality[]

Tilkis Barone (ToAsteria)

Artwork for Tales of Asteria.

Tilkis has brown eyes and long brown hair, tied into a ponytail with a green hairband. The east bay blue shirt he wears has gloves attached to the sleeves, as well as a golden shoulder plate. He also wears a yellow green kilt, light grey pants with light blue on the knees, and metal boots.

Perhaps because he grew up in a large family with three older brothers, one older sister, and two younger sisters, Tilkis has an unconventional personality that befits a prince. He is quite easygoing, admitting that he is only fourth in line for the throne and not particularly important despite his title. He treats his bodyguard Forest as a friend and equal rather than as a subordinate, and Rubia comes to look to him as an elder brother. He is shown to be intelligent, resourceful, and highly observant of his surroundings, but he doesn't make many preparations before acting according to Forest. As a member of royalty, he seems to despise those who would use such a position to bring harm to others, such as Rommy and Areulla VIII.

Tilkis has several "girlfriends" at home in Senshivia, but he doesn't seem to have any romantic attachment to them. He takes a liking to Arria from their very first meeting, which grows as the story progresses. He often tries to compliment or flirt with her, with varying levels of success.

Fighting Style[]

Cut-in image for Tales of the Rays.

Tilkis fights using a two-handed greatsword, capable of swinging it with ease. All of his base artes are named after Greek mythological terms and figures. He has the highest accuracy, agility, and elemental resistance of the three melee fighters, in exchange for lower max HP and attack power. In Tales of the Rays, his arteset is expanded upon, gaining elemental properties, as well as new artes.

Other Appearances[]
