Here’s Your First Glimpse Of Drakengard 3’s Four Apostles

By Ishaan . May 15, 2013 . 2:30pm

Yesterday, we reported on Drakengard 3’s Apostles, who serve as Zero’s support units in battle and also as her… um… personal man-things. Now you can take a look at the four Apostles that have been revealed thus far, courtesy of







You can read all four characters’ backgrounds in our previous report. Drakengard 3 is slated for release on PlayStation 3 this year.

  • Sakurazaki

    I’m like: “Okay, neat!”

    *looks through men*

    Cool, cool, cool… uhh… Cool? Zero, you have some standards.

    • riceisnice

      Different strokes for different folks. Looks like Zero stole the whole freakin’ set..

      • Kanamion

        One of each, depending on her mood.

        • Ali

          Don’t we all have moods? ;)

    • Testsubject909

      If he’s the best and can prove himself to be the best.

      Why not?

      Edit: Plus if Zero’s open minded enough for it.

      • Sakurazaki

        With age comes experience :o

        • Testsubject909

          I know I’ve used the term myself. But when I tend to really think about it. My opinion is:

          Not always.

          I prefer to think… With experience comes experience. A bit redundant I know, but far more accurate.

          There does exist some old people who’re absolutely worthless and/or idiotic. The same can be applied to many people though regardless of age.

          Which is why Experience comes with experience. Sometimes the young can have many experiences, far more then another far older person could…

  • Go2hell66

    Octa and deito seriously!? Obviously some people are into some really weird stuff o_o

    • AnimusVox

      It’s a really weird but awesome series regardless. :L

    • Testsubject909

      Ah… You don’t even know the half of it.

      You know the term Reality is stranger than fiction?

      Care to go to a few adult forums, online sites or other such areas where you can freely talk sexuality with the opposite gender and make your way into discovering the variety of debauchery and desires that runs rampant in the shadows?

    • Davenex

      Well seeing as octa uses rings as weapons I would assume he is good with his hands…..

  • Kenny Loh

    cute one, mature one, cooler one and older one, now fan girls won’t complain square-enix just make fan services for male only XD

    • AkuLord3

      Well remember…he’s the best for Sexual activities than anyone…how can you resist *wink*

    • Testsubject909

      If there are actually fan girls out there making such complaints. They’re dumbasses.

      Square enix has been appealing to a female demographic with it’s male design for a long while now.

  • SaveTheDay

    Wait a second, developers ; *glance at Otca*
    You mean…Zero actually gets laid by this old man sometimes ?

    • Vash bane

      who knows he might be great at his handy work xp

      • Testsubject909

        He is, it was sorta confirmed in the earlier article.

  • Obviously the shota is the sadistic one, them little kids are always so dangerous….

    I like Decartes, looks like a pretty cool dude, has glasses and his right arm guard + “jacket” reminds me of the one outfit of Zeal from The Last Story~

    Cento most obviously the most evil of them all, that design screams it. And Octa…well hats off for being the best gigolo old man~

    • KuchikiSentou

      Reminds me of Kalrow, does Octa.

    • Ali

      Such experience he possesses, not going to lie, I am curious! My character will certainly be busy getting jiggly

  • riceisnice

    Decartes has bigger breasts than most girls I know.


    Cento is smexy

  • Does the old dude have a flower growing out of his forehead!?
    Will the twist be he is Kaine!

    • AkuLord3

      lol and NO…NO!

      • Testsubject909

        A theoretical year and a half later after we were lucky to get a theoretical localization, AkuLord3 theoretically finishes Drakengard 3 and the revelation comes.


        And s/he was never the same again.

    • Vash bane


  • Lazulis

    Deito has one long sword…it doesn’t even fit in that sheath! I had…something…different in mind for Octa…

    So do we get to choose who Zero…does it with or will she just cycle through them all regardless?

  • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

    Looks like The Last Story Character Art Style

    • Same artist.

      • Guest

        Did he/she also design the two female characters? They look very different compared to the females in TLS but the males do look alike.

      • Daniel Jeanbaptiste


  • NTaiyokun

    Great. Now my brain is trying to imagine Octa nak-GYAAAAAAAGGGHHHHHH Ah-ah-AGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH

    • makubexnas

      My brain almost kill me for reading this post.

    • Testsubject909

      Again, wait until you go to sleep, see what your dreams come up with.

    • Sardorim

      At least she can’t say her tastes aren’t varied…

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Yep, half of them still creep me out, but it’s not my place to judge.

    Do you, Zero. Do you.

  • Nameless App 1989

    Rule 34, do your stuff!

    • Vash bane

      and it begins…

      no literally it has begun…like 2 months ago XDD

      • Nameless App 1989

        Except this just increased the flow.

  • Well… She knows how to keep a diversity in age-ranges, to say the least.

  • Sonny Oranga Taing

    Octa is sexing your main character.

    • Testsubject909

      That’s okay. Knowing me, if he were real, I’d sit down, offer to light up his pipe and have a chat with him to see what I could learn.

  • SirTeffy

    …I’d tap Descartes.

  • KingRuff

    Zero says as long as it resembles a man, shes down for it. This means we all still have a shot at being an Apostle. Octa is so not what I was expecting. Like at all. Worst time to have a vivid imagination.

    • Haku_Luvs_You

      Even though I am a man, knowing my luck with the ladies I probably still wouldn’t have a chance :P

    • Testsubject909

      I don’t have much experience on the battlefield. I’ve had quite a few mock combat scenario and while I would prefer to make use of a spear, I have learned how invaluable a shield is in combat if you wish to remain untouched. A sword is much easier to swing too but I’ve yet to attempt to use a short spear.

      Exhaustion will be your worst enemy, even keeping a shield up can become a task after a few hours of trekking through even a flat terrain and that was just a wooden shield. I have had some friends who had to wear chainmail and leather for a whole day and you can bet it was exhaustive. I myself only had a leather armor and that itself was getting heavy after a day.

      While yes I had martial art training, combat with weapon proved very different. As such for you to be an Apostle, you would first need to be able to guarantee your own safety. I would imagine that if you were a dead weight as opposed ot an actual asset in combat, you would be left aside or behind since you would not help in the overall cause.

      My suggestion?

      Learn to handle wearing an armor for an extended period of time, my suggestion is a minimum of a chain mail, it doesn’t constrict movement as much. The downside is, chain mail is pretty heavy in actuality, pending the type of chainmail, it can actually be heavier then a plate mail. If you get a plate mail, make sure that it’s insulated inside to make it comfortable to wear and to buffer it’s vibrations when it’s struck by a weapon.

      Next, learn to handle a shield and a short sword, minimum. It’s perhaps the simplest and safest combination for any newcomer. Don’t even think of a tower shield or a kite shield unless you have the proper arm strength. Just a Targe will test your endurance after a day’s worth of combat.

  • Pockystix

    so if she’s jesus, does that mean she had a little maggie on the side?

  • evilmoogle

    And before you know it, Social links!

  • Bur

    And now to sit back and wait for the porn.

  • Andrew A

    This game is gonna have some great doujins.

    • Vash bane


    • ShadowDivz

      I can’t belive you just went there…..

  • Arcm

    Cento looks pretty badass. He’ll be my reverse Harem’s main stray lol.

  • That poor shota won’t know what hit him by the time Zero’s done with him.

    • Solomon_Kano

      That’s supposing Decartes doesn’t get him first. They seem like a match…

      Oh God.

      • Testsubject909

        Congratulations. You’ve incited some Yaoi fanart/shipping/fanfic.

        I hope you’re proud of yourself.

        • Solomon_Kano

          I regret noth- EVERYTHING.

          • DuskSharkEX

            At least you made the right choice in picking Descartes.

      • You just had to go there. :(

        • Solomon_Kano

          Hey, it’s Drakengard! I’m preparing you for the inevitable!

          • Bur

            If it doesn’t go there I’m going to be so disappointed in them.

          • Solomon_Kano

            I’ll be thoroughly surprised.

          • Soroth23

            The “inevitable” is that the most popular…..pairing is gonna be Zero and One. I mean, they ARE sisters, and apparently they dont like eachother, so their gonna have all kinds of tensions that can only be resolved with……..oh god, wtf am I doing?

      • Duhuhuhuhu….. /fraulaugh

      • So who’s the pitcher and who’s the catcher?

    • Ultima-X

      Oh Lawd.

  • Prinnydoom

    Kinda remind me of last story characters. The way there designed at least.

    • SauriansMaster!!

      it’s the same character artist

      • Prinnydoom

        There we go ^__^

  • Ali

    Wow, a child, a beefcake, a twink and a… um gran-daddy? This lady certainly knows how to fullfil her needs. In all seriousness, is this the same artist from the prior games? I adore the previous games’s artbooks!

    • Testsubject909

      Well… Think of it this way.

      You played some VNs before? Any romance games? Felt the characters might be slightly interchangeable in general design and appearances because they generally were? Same thing often happens with Otome games from what I’ve seen in passing.

      This game is showcasing some nice variety and it can make for a good selling point for women…

      Though Octa will appeal to a smaller demographic.

      • Ali

        Different strokes i guess, im all for it! Eyeing that beefcake Decartes myself! I’m still in shock that this is happening!!! I hope Suikoden and Shadow Hearts get another instalments such as this!

        • Testsubject909

          The company that made Shadow Hearts long disbanded…

          Perhaps, one day, we’ll have a spiritual sequel. Maybe something similar to what Shadow Hearts is to Koudelka.

          Edit: Also, cute cat on keyboard. I forget where that comes from.

          • Ali

            I know alas, same with Suikoden :( My one true love! p.s the cat’s too cute, it’s Chi the Cat.

  • Why they don’t add female apostle?
    My Dragon Dogma character was lesbian :3

    • fyi1191

      Just imagine them being female.
      Deito could be trap.

      • I don’t want to imagine female Octa .___.

        • makubexnas

          Sir, you just give Zero a lady boner.

    • Testsubject909

      Eh… Go watch La Fillette Revolutionnaire Utena

      • Nah, i don’t like yuri anyway, but if my female character must be in sexual relationships with someone I prefer a girl.
        I cant imagine relationships with some guy even in game, even with girl hero.
        So I want a wider choice of partners.

        • Testsubject909

          It’s mainly implied Yuri and nothing graphic, it’s an older anime plus most of the fanservice you will see is aimed for women with a lot of good looking guys with unbuttoned shirts and garments.

          It’s a nice little bit of action, mindfuckery, interesting visuals and is just a fun romp in general.

  • Reposting this fm the previous thread: Honestly, I’m expecting Octa to be more like SAHA/Augus than Kalrow lol.

    Its not too surprising tht Deito is the yandere boy type. (Seen enough otome lol) Liking Decartes and Cento design the most.

    • Testsubject909

      Never trust a front of normalcy.

      • Its going to be Diabolik Lovers/Toma route all over again right? T-T

  • nothing956

    Waiting for usefulness in battle to usefulness in bed ratio for each character.

    I also like the idea that the girl is for lack of a better term a slut. It’s a nice change of pace from the innocent virgin girl.

    • Testsubject909

      I have a better term for you.

      A Domme. I would still make use of that term even if she wasn’t involving herself in anything BDSM related because the Dominant role would still classify her as a Domme even without any sexual involvement as there have been such cases I have had the pleasure of discussing with a male sub about his butler-like relation with his Domme.

      Edit: If you couldn’t figure it out. Domme is the female version of Dom. I also often see Dom/me utilized to make a general statement towards Dominants in general of both gender as some Domme might take offense as to not being titled properly. Kinda like using s/he or other such things as quick shortcuts to stating both genders.

      Edit 2: Also I think Pimp is a gender neutral statement.

      • nothing956

        OK thanks I’ll use the Domme form now on.

        • Testsubject909

          No prob. For now it works though the final product could always provide evidence to the contrary, and so that title might not be fitting.

          But for now it works.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Well, variety is the spice of life, I suppose~.

    • Testsubject909

      Outside of Octa, the other three do pander to a variety of female tastes as far as I’ve been informed from living with a sister who had her Yaoi-loving phase and still has her otome-playing phase and multiple different discussions with others of the opposite gender including many discussions in adult forums from way back when I used to be an admin for one such area and from other places where you could discuss the dynamics of a D/s relationship and other kinks openly and freely.

      Though Octa’s physical appearances put aside, they actually do all answer to different sexual desires and the pairing between their appearances and their traits makes for, as you said, variety.

      You have the masochist, the sadist, the untrained and the trained, no middle ground of sorts (though you could argue that the young untrained one is the middle ground much like how the young virginal girl would be the middle ground stereotype fantasy for men).

      Next in terms of appearances, you have the young pretty boy, the cool hero-looking bishou/seinen type, the gruff rough man and… well the old man doesn’t quite match most fantasies I’ve heard of older men of that age area, but hey.

      Edit: Amusingly (Edit 2: Or unsurprisingly). The more I think, look and talk about this, paired with my discussions with sexually open women, the more I’m beginning to think this game was specifically made to pander to a female audience far moreso then a male audience.

  • Starts going through the guys:

    Dieto – Okay

    Decartes – Okay

    Cento – Awesome

    Octa – ………………………………………………………………………………………………..

  • Sperium3000

    Ok, Deito is the shota, Descartes fills in for both older men and muscular men, and Cento is your typical Final Fantasy-ish pretty guy. Octa…. Sheesh, Zero sure isn’t picky.

  • OceanBlue

    Imagining Zero with Octa is just…ugh. What the hell are the devs thinking! Not even a female harem features someone that’s 70+ years old. No, the 1000 year old lolis don’t count.

    • Testsubject909

      I’ve met a few women who do actually enjoy much older men, so hey they have something to appeal to their demographic which doesn’t happen very often.

      Though admittedly, Octa isn’t exactly the best example of a man to appeal to said demographic.

      Still, your reaction is a bit over the top… understandable though.

  • new_tradition

    Watch and find out Octa is a Incubus or something and when he transform during sexy times, he’s the hawtest guy of the 4, lol

    I hope the gameplay is good. I only played a bit of the first game, but I hated the parts where you fly your dragon. I can accept I was just sucking, but it annoyed me so frickin’ much :X

  • Chiupon

    Dunno if it’s been mentioned, but there’s a manga accompanying the game too. It’s like “Utahime 5” or something like that. I don’t know many of the details but there are 4 more songstress thingies in addition to One and Zero; in addition, I don’t think there’s ever an explicit mentioning of One’s sex, meaning thar may be a trap

    • Solomon_Kano

      Ohoho. Hadn’t heard about that.

      But they did say that One is Zero’s younger sister when the game was announced. So no trap there.

  • ChiffonCake

    Hmm, this is interesting. You don’t usually see such promiscuous female protagonists in games, so I’m curious to see how this’ll play out. Plus I’m very fond of Zero’s design (even though this artist is not one of my favorites).

    Well, I guess I’ll go try Drakengard 1 and 2 now!

  • Kevin Schwarz

    You know what we call a girl who has sex with a little boy, an old man, a mature guy and …a dwarf-like-thing? People don’t call it promiscuous in my town, people call it a hoe lol.

  • Dieto – Attentive
    Descartes – Gentle
    Cento – Sadistic
    Octa – ………. I have no words
    I hope your happy square i’m not getting any sleep tonight. Damn you imagination and your instant pictures in my head!

  • I wonder if a possible antagonist of this game would be a pansexual combat sadomasochist.

    Really, only that is left.
