I loved the idea of a mysterious random wizard using his magic to partially survive the curse and give you pointers. Lots of fantastic ideas that could have been much better.
Well, replace Connor say with Alexander...I mean in KQ1, all we're told in the original is that Graham is a knight. He doesn't speak much at all, and we don't know anything about him. Sort of like Connor, he's a blank slate; he's a tanner, but as the story unfolds, so does him being noble not in blood, but in deed. Sarah was just in the into cutscene...And I don't see why Lucreto isn't interesting. His story is very much akin to the whole Paradise Lost thing: Basically an angel who wanted the power of God for himself. That's a pretty trope , similar to the Grand Vizier wanting control of a Kingdom trope used in KQ6.
