Disgaea 5 is all about revenge, as Killia and his friends are on a journey to take out Void Dark. He’ll be accompanied by various demon lord friends, and 4Gamer shares a look at the two newest demons, in addition to character classes that will join in on the fight.
After taking notice of Killia’s potential in magic power, Christo plans on using it to assassinate the demon emperor known as Void Dark.
Christo is quite talented as a tactician and staff officer, and he’ll do anything it takes for victory.
Zeroken is a small demon lord who claims to be the disciple of the legendary Great Demon Fist Goldeon, and plans to single-handedly take out the brutal and heartless army, known as Lost.
After showing up in front of Killia and the others who are fighting against Lost, Zeroken decides to take it upon himself to help them out. He might be a little cocky, but depending on who he’s talking to, he knows how to keep his manners in check.
