Christopher

Plot Summary: When asked to name her Knight, the MC’s instinct doesn’t lead her to anyone in particular. She takes a walk on the beach, and suddenly a hollow opens up. Matthew comes to her aid and manages to draw out her Crystal. After the fight the MC discovers that the Knight is not Matthew at all but his elder twin, Christopher. Christopher does not want a Prayer Maiden and only grudgingly decides to partner with the MC. The MC is drawn to Matthew, the mystery around him, and the obsessive way he defeats the shadows, and she is determined to form some kind of partnership with him, no matter how hard he resists her

What I think of him: Christopher is a lone wolf, and could either be said to be the best Knight or the worst Knight, depending on who you ask. He is a mysterious black clad figure who goes around slaying shadows. Although he preforms this Knightly service, he is also very much not a Knight because he puts slaying shadows above everything, including the protection of innocent bystanders. Unlike his brother, Matthew, who built his fighting style around defense, Christopher’s motto is that a defeated opponent cannot attack. That is not to say that Christopher is completely cold, because he does have a softer side, and when faced with pleading he usually gives in despite his major stubborn streak. Sora says of Christopher that “his biggest problem is that he’s too calm and composed. He even analyzes his feelings objectively”. If I were to pick a single word to describe Christopher it would be “devoted”

Nickname: None

Charm point: The way he can’t help but give in to the MC

Quote: “I want to be with you more than anyone.”

Cuddle, kiss, or push down: Receive a pat on the head from, because his hand is warm and it is much more likely than a straightforward compliment

Would have eloped with:

  • Liam, because for all his misplaced angst he still orders the MC to return home safely
  • Matthew, because of the admiration her has for his brother and his adorable (nagging) prissiness

Favorite moments:

  • The MC bossing Christopher around and trying to get him to do what she wants
  • That painful moment when the MC admits that she’s not Christopher’s Princess in Chapter Six and up to Christopher swearing an oath to protect her
  • The MC coming up with the idea of how to rescue Zoe, and Christopher’s execution of it
  • The scenario ensuing from the MC trying on the dress Liam makes for her
  • The Prayer Maiden Ending

Worst moments:

  • Dramatic Troy is DRAMATIC. Did the story need to go as far as it did to raise the stakes? Isn’t the love triangle enough? (It’s a rhetorical question, because yes, yes it is)
  • Anabel was amazingly easy to snap out of her evilness
  • The Alone Together Ending didn’t feel very satisfying

Worth the price of admission?: Even though Christopher is the poster boy for this game his was the route I was looking forward to the least, mostly because I hate ex-girlfriend routes. But I actually really enjoyed this route. Christopher doesn’t really obsess over his love, and it is really apparent that his obsession is also linked heavily with his knightly nature. This route felt very different from the other routes in this game, probably due to the information that is kept secret from the MC and the other Prayer Maidens and also because Christopher and the MC travel by horse and there is a greater sense of time passing as they travel through all the kingdoms and meet each Prayer Maiden and Knight duo separately. This route is probably the best introduction route for this game, especially considering that all the other routes sort of hang off of Christopher’s past
