Wylfred (or Wyl as he prefers), was the protagonist of Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume. A grim realist who found the general populace uncaring and cruel, he decided that he would set out to end the Valkyrie in order to prevent bloodshed and avenge his father. He was gifted with a Plume from Valkyrie's wing that could grant intense power to a person in battle before sacrificing them to the Gods. Introduced as brave yet naïve, his attitude changes based on whether or not he decides to sacrifice his comrades' lives in battle. Yet, if he continues to wage heavy bloodshed, he can become brutal and spiteful, driven purely by his hatred of the Valkyries.
Wyl’s basic attire is based off of his artwork wearing a light crimson tunic and cape with armoured sleeves and armoured gleave-boots. In EX Mode, Wyl equips the Angel Slayer sword.
His alternative costume 'Angel Killer' is a palette swap that brings him closer to his in-game appearance: colouring him in lighter metallic armour and an orange tunic. With his hair being more silver rather than crimson.
The 3rd costume 'Realm Stalker', dresses Wyl as he appears in the possible ending where he is possessed - with his face becoming more demonic, his clothing coloured in shades of blues and greens and having a Demon Blade as his fighting weapon.
Wyl deals more damage when either he or his opponent is in 'Brave Break'.
