AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Shin Megami Tensei IV ApocalypseEdit

The brother of Navarre, Gaston is one of Nanashi's allies.

Gaston is an 18 year-old samurai from the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado who has received orders to defeat the faction known as the "Polytheist Union". He hates his brother Navarre for sullying their family's name.

Battle PartnerEdit

All of Gaston's skills are physical and his Partner Awakening passive grants the equivalent to High Phys Pleroma + Phys Pierce; like all other Partner Awakenings it can be stacked with similar passives for increased effect. Obtaining Gungnir in a late game event grants the "pierce" property to all of his attacks, allowing him to bypass all physical resistances except for reflection. Gaston will randomly interrupt the player's character and perform his own attack, effectively using up the player's first turn icon. This property can be useful in grinding relatively weak demons, but not so good in boss fight.

There is also a very unpleasant behavior of Gaston's AI: If all enemies repel physical attack, Gaston will stay put during partner's turn, but he will still interrupt player's turn and the attack will result in the loss of all player's turn icons.
