SaGa Frontier Character

Asellus is one of the main protagonists of SaGa Frontier.

Story

Asellus was saved from certain death by a transfusion of Mystic blood, and became the first and only Human/Mystic half-breed on this world. Athough she is grateful to Orlouge, the Mystic whose blood saved her life, Asellus wonders whether she is really Human or Mystic.

When she woke up, she had become the world's first half-mystic. Orlouge called her and ordered Ildon to watch her, while ordering one of his princesses, White Rose, to teach her the mystic customs. Asellus eventually decides to run away when Ciato mentions a guy who could take her out of Facinaturu. White Rose goes with her, and the two manage to escape. She tries to go back to her home, but finds out that twelve years have passed ever since her accident.

Trivia

  • There is an unused sprite in SaGa Frontier featuring a naked Asellus. This sprite was going to be used in a cutscene where Asellus and White Rose would jump into Kurenai while escaping, which would burn their clothes. They both survive due to their mystic blood and end up in Mosperiburg.
  • Asellus's story is the most famous among the SaGa community due to large sections of dialog and plot that were removed prior to the final release of the game. Many of these additional scenarios would have taught Asellus that just as there are evil mystics, there are also evil humans. Neither species is exempt from doing cruel, callous things to other beings and it is this revelation (along with several others) that represents an astonishing amount of character development for such a tormented, tragic character. These removed scenes are also why Asellus's quest features the most possible endings; her final decision, made by the player, was originally intended to be modeled after everything she had learned from visting various places.
    • Due to the removed scenes and dialog, Asellus's final decision in the retail release seems more forced and sudden rather than something determined by her experiences. 
  • Despite the removal of the previously mentioned scenes, the event where Asellus and White Rose would survive naked in Mosperiburg and then meet with Virgil to get some replacement clothing actually still exists in the U.S. version's data. Through hacking, it is possible to witness the cutscene, however the text for it is in Japanese, meaning it was discarded prior to any translation work.
