|Lemon in Shining Force II.|
|Appearances||Shining Force II|
Lemon is a character in the Shining Force II: Ancient Sealing game. Lemon appears early in the game, but can only be controlled by the player near the end of the game. Lemon, like Peter, can revive himself when killed, though this is because of the unpleasant happenings in his life of serving King Galam.
Background[edit | edit source]
Lemon was a general in the army of Galam. He served King Galam with his life, because he always trusted the wise king. One day, a messenger of Galam was found dead and King Galam guessed Granseal to be responsible. King Galam then invaded Granseal, even though the Galam soldiers disagreed. Lemon, however, made their mind, telling them that Galam had a good reason to attack. But then, in Granseal, Lemon learned that King Galam was possessed by a Dark Smoke) and attacked Granseal to open the Ancient Tower. When Lemon marched towards his king, he was possessed by an evil Gizmo himself. After these events, the possessed Lemon was known as the Red Baron, an emotionless killing machine that the Devil Army used as a weapon. When the Shining Force took the devil out of Lemon's body, he became an immortal vampire, being unable to die. Out of guilt, he tried to redeem himself by taking his own life, although he couldn't. He eventually joined the Force, trying to get killed fighting the devils. In the end of the game, he sacrifices himself to seal Zeon who was possessing King Galam's body.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Although a fierce and powerful general, Lemon has a good heart and does not like to kill innocent lives. When he realized what he had done while as the Red Baron, Lemon buckled under the burden of the innocent lives the Dark Smoke had took while possessing his body, and his in a fit of misplaced duty fell into suicidal despair.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Lemon is an immortal vampire. If he falls in battle, he revives afterward, automatically and at no cost. He joins with the cursed Dark Sword, which casts the Desoul spell when used as an item. Despite his class of "Blood Baron", for the most part his in-battle sprite and style of fighting is the same as the regular Baron class. He will partner up, therefore, with either Jaha or Randolf depending on who was promoted to what. Otherwise he is a mid-top tier character. He has a strong HP and defense growth.
Though his agility growth is decent early on, it will wane over time. Lemon was subject to a bug on certain emulators. This bug prevents him from equipping weapons, making him useless in battle beyond his Dark Sword's special ability. Players could get around this by changing emulators.
