Yuri is the young protagonist of Tales of Vesperia, or at least one of them. Orphaned at an early age to mysterious circumstances, his goal is to change the Empire for the better and to pick up the slack when his best friend, Flynn Scifo, has got his hands full. He fights with a sword, has a weakness for sweets and doesn't particularly care for authority or the villainous types.
Yuri was on the first train into Rakuen City and it shows. All of his upgrades have been unlocked (with a few extra from lost friends), he's achieved outbreak status and he's currently rolling in 5000+ raks thanks to a glitch. Statistically, he's doing very well. The city's system, however, continues to frustrate him.
