Judge if you want. We're all going to die eventually.

Tales of Vesperia
I went into tales of vesperia expecting angsty edgelord yuri lowell going on a journey to uncover his dark past or something. What I got instead was sassy, stressed mom friend yuri lowell who just wanted to find that fucking aque blastia and somehow ended up with too many children and responsibilities like. Follow yuri on his journey as he kills mass murdering politicians and punches an incoporeal astral blob all while trying to make sure that his 6 troubled kids and his dog stay healthy, feel supported, and have snacks.
Yuri Lowell doesn’t want to be anyone’s hero. For him, living day to day in the Lower Quarter was difficult enough. An orphan, raised by the people living there in poverty, Yuri has a strong sense of justice and compassion for people who struggle with the Empire’s unfair taxes and discrimination and retaliates however he can. Sarcastic, cynical and laid back, Yuri isn’t one to let little things like jail time and threats from Knights stop him from helping others, even though there’s only so much he can do. Once he leaves his home and witnesses the greater atrocities that the Empire commits, Yuri feels more and more helpless and bitter. As such, he heads down a darker path; vigilantism.
Yuri is kind and gentle, even if his manner of speaking and acting can be abrasive and off-putting. He is genuinely charismatic and laid back, attracting the attention and loyalty of people around him and often making younger people idolize his way of life. With a reasonable head on his shoulders (except when he can be stubborn), Yuri is always open to other ideas and possibilities and he’s never against learning and changing his ways. When his world gets bigger with his party being by his side, he realizes that he can no longer be a lone wolf and because he is tied to others, he has a responsibility to them as well. Yuri will never be a typical RPG protagonist, preferring not to get involved or doing so in a way that would be off putting to others, not caring for the moral implications, but he cares enough to do whatever he can to make it a better world. He’ll just do it his own way.
Yuri is capable of using both swords and axes in battle, though axes usually reduce his attack speed while providing more damage. He uses his fists and feet in combination with his weapons, often punching the enemy with his gauntlets instead of using his main weapon. His attacks and artes range from stylish and flashy to brutal and powerful. When compared to other swordsmen in the game, Yuri does not have as much technicality and he tends to do more tricks with his sword such as flipping it around him and spinning it during attacks. He has a good balance of speed and power in his attacks.
