Flynn

Flynn using Shugohoujin.

Flynn Scifo (フレン・シーフォ Furen Shiifo) is one of the four playable characters from Tales of Vesperia, albeit an unfinished bonus character. Flynn is part of the Imperial Knights and is in great contrast, in both personality and attributes, to Yuri Lowell. Additionally, his design is very similar to that of Guy Cecil.

In ACS, Flynn is considered a Magic Knight, in that he combines sword techniques with light-based magic spells in his combos.

Flynn was sprited by Tales Series Forum members Royal_Blade and Radixan_, and made playable by Anibache.
