The Topaz HeroEdit
Josh is a fairly typical hero, though not as headstrong as Ben. He is usually fairly jovial, and makes bad jokes.
It is possible for Josh to marry two characters during the epilogue, both requiring an A support. He can marry either Andrea or Crystal. Andrea is usually suggested, as she gives better benefits for the support. Getting Crystal also requires her to be at at least a C with Amber as well, though an A with Amber causes him to marry Crystal, if Andrea is not at A rank.
Josh is fairly difficult to train, as opposed to Ben. This is because he has much lower strength and defense for a melee unit. However, once a magic sword is obtained (Such as the Light Brand), Josh becomes much more powerful, due to his high skill and speed. Josh has Aether, which combined with his high skill allows him to have a penetrating and healing move more often than Ben. He is one of the two characters that, if killed in battle, causes an instant game over. The other is Ben.
Josh starts out at level 1, and promotes into a Hero automatically at the end of chapter 16. He starts with a D rank in Swords, and gains a D rank in Axes upon promotion.

Josh is one of the Six characters that can use an Elemental Stone to promote to a custom class. This class is the doppelganger, whose main feature is the changing weapon and the regenerate ability, which makes him unable to be killed. He comes with an Ectoplasm to attack with. Unlike the other Elemental Stones, he only gains HP during level ups, and gains all of his bonuses through promotion. His promotion gains are variable based upon when the stone is used.
- Regenerate: Fully heals HP at the start of each round. Cannot drop below 1 HP.
- Sense Weakness: Always has the advantage in battle. Also has "Vantage" skill.
