Chester Stoddart (チェスター・ストダート) is the primary antagonist and Adol's rival for the majority of Ys: The Oath in Felghana.


Chester and his sister Elena are the sole survivors of the massacre on Genos Island and the sole remaining descendants of the legendary hero who sealed away Galbalan when he threatened Felghana in ancient times. Chester blames Count McGuire, the feudal lord of Felghana, for the massacre. Swearing revenge, he ingratiates himself with the Count by posing as his most loyal knight all the while waiting for an opportunity to destroy the count.

In GamesEdit

Ys: The Oath in FelghanaEdit

Chester appears frequently throughout the game as Count McGuire's top enforcer, constantly threatening Adol to not get involved. At one point, he goes as far as throwing Adol off the cliff, causing him to drop down to the Zone of Lava. Once Adol collects all the statues used to seal away Galbalan, Chester takes the statues and attempts to use their power to destroy the count and everyone in Valestein Castle. However, after being defeated in a duel by Adol, he learns that he was a pawn in a plan to revive Galbalan. Realizing his error, he sacrifices himself to destroy Galbalan completely after Adol weakens him with Genos' sword.

Ys vs Sora no Kiseki: Alternative SagaEdit

He is an agile fighter. Equipped with a low-cost teleport skill with long range and low SP cost, an effective homing ranged attack with decent damage, as well as several very safe high-cost AOE skills, he is efficient at hit-and-run tactics and one of the hardest characters to hit effectively. However, his air combat skills are quite lacking. He also has low AP and stamina, leaving him open when he runs out of SP.


  • He is left-handed, just like Loewe from Falcom's Kiseki series.
