About Edit

Tami John was a member of the Helman Third Army who only appeared in Kichikuou Rance.

The subordinate of Minerva Margaret and her younger brother Maha Margaret, Tami was indebted to the two siblings for an unknown reason and had dedicated his life to protecting them as thanks. As the Margaret siblings were born into poverty, it is very likely that Tami was also from a similarly harsh background.

During the events of Kichikuou Rance, Tami accompanies Minerva and the rest of the Helman Third Army to defend the country's capital Lang Bau from the invading Leazas forces. Though Tami can be fought and killed in battle conventionally, should the player fight the Third Army for several turns without defeating him, an event will trigger wherein he triggers an explosive trap set by Minerva, resulting in his death. Outside of this event, Tami plays no further role in the story.

In the canonical timeline, Tami's character is largely replaced by Isaac, another Third Army soldier who believed himself to be the right hand man of Minerva only to be betrayed and indirectly killed by her. Despite this, Tami's name reappears in Rance IX attached to one of the elite Helman knights fought in the optional stage "Helman Assault 5", though the character uses a generic model and does not speak.

Personality and Appearance Edit

Tami was an incredibly large, muscular man with tanned skin, short blonde hair, a large facial scar, and a generally intimidating appearance. His clothing consisted of the unique uniform worn by soldiers of the Third Army following Minerva's appointment to the position of general, consisting of an iron cuirass, a long blue skirt, purple shoes and matching purple gloves. Finally, Tami wore a bell collar with an "M" engraved onto it around his neck in order to display his position as the Margaret siblings' servant.

A man of few words, much of Tami's character was informed by his actions. He was a gruff, austere man who fought ferociously for those he had sworn his loyalty to and showed no mercy towards those he considered to be his enemies. Tami could be thought of as a prime example of a person raised in the harsh and unforgiving environment of the Helman slums: rugged, hostile and ready to stoically handle any challenge thrown at him.

Tami devoted himself to serving as the servant of the Margaret siblings after he was saved by them in the past. He was extremely dedicated to this position, and always accompanied the siblings wherever they went. In spite of his loyalty, Minerva showed no personal attachment toward Tami, perceiving him as being as expendable as any other soldier. This unbalanced relationship potentially results in Tami's death, where he is callously killed by Minerva in order to serve as a decoy to draw the attention of the Leazas Army away from her. Should this occur, Tami shows both shock and sadness that Minerva would throw away his life so easily, suggesting that he had believed Minerva to care much more about him than she actually did.

Abilities Edit

A massive man with a towering frame, Tami was a deadly opponent with strength and abilities comparable to a general. He possessed a high Level Cap of 42 which he was close to reaching, allowing him to fight on par with the elite of The Continent.

In battle, Tami wielded a large two-handed axe with ease to cut down his foes. He was incredibly tough and resilient, and possessed a body that could withstand several attacks from an entire army and still stand.

In addition to his individual strength, Tami appeared to be a skilled commander, and led a very large unit of powerful Helman knights to great effect, allowing him to be able to defeat sizable sections of enemy armies while minimizing casualties within his own.

Trivia Edit

  • At 222 cm, Tami is the tallest non-modified Human to ever appear in the Rance Series whose height is known, beating out Thoma Lipton by just 2 centimeters.
