This time around we get to see the characters that were sent to colonize the new continent in five subsequent phases. The first phase was made of individuals of extremely high talent, including the Commander, who is the one taking care of the strategy.

The Sword Master is an old hunter very fond of his old longsword. He has the best skills with weapons of the whole group. The reason why he sticks to antiquated equipment is that he doesn’t understand modern contraptions.

The Field Master is a talented explorer that establishment the system that pairs hunters and palicoes. She is talented in natural science, and after years of scouting, she has a strong grasp of the local ecology.

The Chef was originally a palico buddy, but he retired and started to cook for the hunters. Now he owns the restaurant in Astrea.

The Wyverian Hunter is the only wyverian in the investigation team sent with the first phase. He combines the sensibility typical of wyverians with the experience of a hunter. He is currently missing after departing for an investigation.

The second phase was made mostly of crafters and engineers and includes the Second Phase Master, leader of a group of smiths dedicated to creating the equipment for the hunters.,
