Weapons, Equipment, and Abilities:
Swordsmanship: Yuri's style in the sword is... unique. He uses attacks that have little tricks in them, spinning the sword or throwing it up in the air as he does another action, catching it as it drops. His combos are fluid and smooth, running like water against a rock. Yuri also mixes in his own fists and feet into his fights. He has a good balance in power and speed, with some moves focusing on one over the other. It should be noted that he also uses axes in the same way, though sacrificing speed for power even more.





Personality

"You can do like your friend is, and put everything you've got into changin' the system. Or ya can turn your back on the empire, and live by the rules ya set fer yerself." ~ Don Whitehorse

Yuri is usually sarcastic, mocking, and doubtful of certain people. He enjoys teasing friends, and usually Yuri can end up ina strong, caring relationship with people- provided that he feels he can become close to them. A prime example is his friendship with Flynn Scifo. They were practically like brothers, even if they had become complete opposites, in occupation, social status, and personalities.
Yuri is known to be the one who does things small. He cares more for smaller problems of each individual, rather than going for the large political situations. He also prefers the lower classes, and usually hates nobility because of the fact that he comes from the Lower Quarter of Zaphias. In fact, Yuri also can take it to the next level. With his sence of justice in a world with a corrupted government, Yuri has become a lone vigilante, killing any noble that abuse their power so heavily.




Background

Yuri Lowell used to be a normal man in his world, specifically one of those who chose to be a knight. Even then, he was the rival of Flynn Scifo, though a friendly one that supported each other. It was at the event of a mission to a fortress that changed Yuri's way of life, making him leave the knights and going to the lower Quarter of Zaphias, where only the poor and unfortunate are found.
Life was peaceful, until an event in which the water blastia of the fountain had gone missing, causing a flood. Yuri sets off in a mission to find the criminal who stole the blastia core, which had ended up in him being arrested and put in the dungeons. As Yuri escapes the castle, he is eventually submerged into a large adventure to save to world.

Did you Know?

◾Yuri is a common given name for males in Russia, meaning George (Юрий), sometimes referring to a farmboy. In Japan, it is a traditional female name, meaning "lily" (百合/ゆり/ユリ). In Korea, it is also a female name, meaning glass (유리). Lowell is often a prominent English and American surname. It is also Old French for young wolf, which corresponds with some of Yuri's artes possessing a wolf theme, such as Wolf Strike and Savage Wolf Fury.
◾Yuri is the first protagonist in the Tales series who is truly ambidextrous. By default, he carries his sword in his left hand. This means he can fight with his weapon in either hand, although he never fights with a weapon in both hands at the same time like Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia.
◾In the PlayStation 3 port of the game, Yuri can wear the clothing of Asch from Tales of the Abyss. In contrast, Flynn gains a costume of Luke fon Fabre from the same game, emphasizing the opposing relationships of both pair of characters in their respective games.
◾There is a skit in the PlayStation 3 version of the game in which Karol questions why Yuri and Flynn possess some of the same artes, yet the two perform them very differently, such as Dragon Swarm and Tiger Blade. Flynn states those were artes they learned while in the Knights, but Yuri decided to add his own twist to the artes by implementing a few kicks or a punch to them, fitting his style.
◾Yuri's default clothing appears as a costume for Jude Mathis in Tales of Xillia 2.
◾Speaking of cameo costumes, Yuri Lowell's set of costumes-counting the ones in the PS3 port- also includes cameo costumes of Judas (Tales of Destiny 2), Creed (Tales of Hearts), and Mitsurugi (Soul Calibur).
◾In an interview with Yuri Lowell's English voice actor, Troy Baker, Troy said that he had been called to record certain lines, along with the voice actors for Estillese and Rita. These lines also included the incantation of the unused Mystic Arte, Tenshou Kouyokuken (an attack that is based on the ending sequence to the story mode after defeating the final boss).
◾Because it was an incantation to the Mystic Arte used in the PS3 port (unfortunately Japanese-exclusive), fans used this as a hint that they would get a PS3 port of Tales of Vesperia as well, only to be disappointed when it was revealed that Microsoft paid Namco Bandai to make Tales of Vesperia an XBox exclusive.
◾I find it funny as the main character's name is Yuri, and there seemed to bbee a time in which Rita and Estelle had to sleep together (which instigated the shipping of Estelle and Rita, or Ristelle as Yuri likes to put it).

Yuri Lowell's Story

Character Portrait: Yuri Lowell

A man dressed all in black walked through the alleyways of Japan. If there was one thing about times of chaos, its that there's the dangers of the dominant threat- which are these... things called "Metroids"- and cowards who feed off of others. And since it was nighttime... it was the perfect time for an attack. Seriously. Cowards always trust in the darkness to hide their faces and identity in order to get away with their crime...

Then again, by that logic, Yuri Lowell was a coward as well. At least he was justified- he's stopping people from hurting others in the darkness of the night. If it wasn't a human, Yuri would still attack it. After all, that "dominant threat" was everywhere. Most of the population were scared to go out of their homes at night. So, it was up to the "Dark Enforcer" to ensure the safety of the people from the Metroids as well as those that would attack their own race in its time of need.

Sounds of the night passed through the vigilante's ears. Sounds of silence, save for the wind and the insects that come out. It is all too silent. Yuri thought. And he was all too right, as after 10 minutes of walking through the streets of Japan, gunshots sounded. Two possibilities came to mind for the wielder of that gun: one was that it was a guy who had arms to defend himself. Another was the average thug Yuri always needs to stop before someone else gets hurt.

The next action Yuri did never required the said knowledge: running to the scene. Immediately, Yuri noticed a the body of a woman on the ground, unconscious, as well as two masked men turning and running away, one with a gun in hand and another, a purse. "Hey!" The vigilante immediately took action as he ran in pursuit of the two thugs. Obviously, Yuri was in better shape than the two men, and pretty soon he caught up to the two. He didn't even bother unsheathing his sword- their blood wasn't even worth spilling. After all, they were the lowest of the low, attacking in times of chaos such as this.

As the vigilante caught up to them, he swung the sheath onto the back of one of the guys' heads, hard. The blow instantly knocked him out as Yuri used the butt of the actual sword. The other thief saw this and froze in fear for a second before trying to run away again. This time, Yuri didn't have to go into a full chase again. Within a few seconds, Yuri managed to punch the guy's lights out. Nighty-night, bastards... Yuri cursed within his mind as he retrieved the purse from one of the thieves' personage.

Yuri returned to the alleyway where he saw the unconscious woman. Further examination of the scene indicated that she was scared by the gunshot, most likely near her head, and fainted. Again, the cowardly way to live. Yuri thought. The vigilante knelt down in order to try to wake the stranger up when, out of nowhere, he heard a woman's voice yelling "Hey! Over here you big meanie Metroid!"

"What the hell...?" Yuri muttered, standing up immediately and dropping the bag. "Who..." There was no time to react. Obviously, the voice was too mature for it to be a girl, though the tone of voice did sound childish. Yuri ran out the alleyway and dashed to the source of the commotion. Turning and running around a corner, he saw a woman dressed in what he might speculate as a strange dress, blue in color (which was the only thing he could describe), kicking a Metroid in speeds that would match the later parts of his Zankou Roueijin arte. The woman then jumped onto the creature but had to remove her advantage in order to prevent being shaken off and left in a vulnerable state.

Yuri immediately dashed, already having a combo set in his mind. Just as the alien charged at the woman in blue, Yuri reached the scene and gave it a hard swing to stun it, followed by a combo of Shun'enkazan (alternation of spin kicks and slashes followed by a sword spin to keep the enemy even more wounded) and Kogahazan (upward slash followed by a midair horizontal slash with a downward fist). It damaged the Metroid severely, but not to the extent of it being incapacitated. Yuri brought his sword back into his left hand, smirking as the creature propped itself up from the ground again. Obviously, the Metroid still had some fight left in it. Yuri Lowell placed the sword on his shoulder as he readied himself from an attack from the Metroid. "Hey." Yuri addressed the woman, though not looking at her directly. "You okay over there? You're not hurt are you?"

Reimu Hakurei arrived at the small Japanese village. She came here from across the Hakurei Boundary, between this world and one called Gensokyo. She really didn't want to be here. The Boundary Youkai sent her here, almost against her will. "There is major tragedy going on in the other world." The Boundary Youkai told her, "If this problem continues it shall have catastrophic consequences for Gensokyo." And so Reimu was sent here.

This world was odd. The small village look different from the human villages of Gensokyo. For most of Gensokyo had little technology, things such as cars, paved streets, and power lines would be alien to her. She looked around, but there wasn't a soul in sight. She wondered around the streets with the dumb look on her face. She had no idea what she was suppose to do. She was suppose to be looking for these monster things called, Metroid... or something. She had no idea what they looked like. She heard some ruckus coming from another part of the village. She quickly floated in the air to fly over the buildings to get to where it was coming. There was three people, seemed like they have been fighting some sort of creature thing. She decided to watch them from the sky, for now. If she feels like they need her, she'll swoop in and save the day.

Just as the Metroid was charging at Chun-Li, and she was going to start charging at it, a man came out of no where. He was dressed in all black and started to cut and slash the Metroid with a whole bunch of well-known sword techniques. She had to stop mid-way as she watched him almost kill the Metroid. He surely knew what he was doing, and she bet he could kill one of those things by himself no problem. However, Chun-Li could still see that the Metroid wasn't finished yet and was going to use every amount of its strength no matter what.

"Hey." the man said to Chun-Li, "You okay over there? You're not hurt are you?"

Chun-Li nodded, although she knew he couldn't see her because he wasn't looking at her, and she said, "Yeah! I'm fine!"
She than started to run again towards the Metroid again. "Ha!" She said sharply as she jumped up and managed to turn upside down in the air and did her Spinning Bird Kick, which once she was upside down in the air, she did the splits in the air and spinned her body around, almost making her legs look like a helicopter as it hit the Metroid several times. The Metroid stumbled back slightly, but it wasn't enough damage to take it down. She than landed on her feet and started to run to the behind of the Metroid. "You can take the front!" She said out to "The-Man-In-Black", "I'll handle the back!" She said as she got behind the Metroid and waited for the man to make his move at the front.

Yuri stood off alongside a woman against an alien creature with fangs... How many times can you say this without lying, really? Yuri thought. Then again, how many times can you say that while looking for something that powered your local fountain, you were imprisoned in a castle and was thrust into a large-scale trip to save the world? He mentally chuckled, and stopped as the woman replied to his earlier question.

"Yeah! I'm fine!" She then proved it by spinning upside down in the air and kicking the creature. Seriously. Yuri mentally sighed. How much stuff have I seen or done that can't be said by any other person? The woman landed behind the monster and shouted "You can take the front! I'll handle the back!" Huh... Her legs must really be strong if she's not hurting herself but hurting that monster instead. Yuri thought. Getting his mind back into the game, Yuri smirked as he brought his sword back and charged at the monster.

The vigilante swung his blade once again, now using even more complex artes. He swung the sword upwards in a vertically-narrow X, then punched through the center of the X. Obviously, the punch was hard, but it still hurt the vigilante. "Damn! Talk about being hard-headed..." Yuri muttered, shaking his hand. Then, the man in black jumped backwards, releasing a small sphere of energy at the creature- Yuri's Souhajin attack. The creature wasn't damaged much from his attack, but its attention was directed to Yuri now. "Your turn, Miss Blue!" Yuri called, already preparing a guard should the girl be unable to stun the monster before it tried to get Yuri.

Chun-Li had no idea what the guy was doing up front. Whatever it was, it was powerful. Powerful enough to almost take it out. Almost. She suspected that one more move would kill it. The Metroid stumbled backwards as the Man in Black fought it. Chun-Li had to be careful not to get stepped on. She took a few steps backwards everytime it stumbled her way.

"Your turn, Miss Blue!" Yuri called out to Chun-Li.

And she heard him quite loud and clear....and had to surpress a laugh from the new nickname she had. I have to make this one count, She thought, This is the last move.

"Hyakuretsukyaku!" Chun-Li called out again as she jumped up and kicked the Metroid multiple times in the middle. She came down and landed on her feet as the Metroid lurched forwards and was about to stumble to the ground. "Watch out!" Chun-Li said to the man in front. The Metroid had lost it's balanced and was now slowly dying from the damage the two had made on it.

A figure, clad in blue armor wearing a similarly colored helmet with a red triangle gem stands walks down a lonely street with red energy trailing behind him that could be mistaken for a scarf. As he past an alley way, he heard the sound of clicking and the noise of wings. X looks into the alleyway and see's two Metroids, X jumps backward to the other side of the street and his right arm morphs into the Mega Buster. The Metroids were not full grown but two of them are always a problem. "Not good." X Says as the two Metroids rush out and straight at X.

X takes aim at the two aliens and he begins to glow and his arm emits a high pitched hum as he gathers energy. One of the Metroids rush at him and he jumps into the air and kicks off the building that was behind him, causing the Alien slam into the same building. As X flips over the stunned Metroid he fires a fully charged shoot while upside down, the shot causes a small explosion. The other Metroid rushes at X and swings at it with its sharp and powerful front leg. X activates one of his special abilities that creates a shield in front of him but the force of the strike causes him to to slide backwards. X rapidly fires uncharged shots from his arm cannon, one shot hits the eye and makes the Metroid stumble backward. X charges up another full power shot and fires it at the Metroid causing another small explosion.

With the two aliens dying from severe wounds, X begins to walk away from the corpses. As he turns a corner and walks a few more blocks his Ultra-sensitive picks up on the sounds of battle and a woman's voice saying "Hyakuretsukyaku!". "Sounds like someone is fighting more of these Metroids, i should go see if i can help." X quickly runs down an alley, the red scarf trailing out from behind him as he runs. He comes to the area where the people have fought and seemingly defeated the alien. The robot walks forward, "Is everyone okay?" He asks

Reimu watched down at the people fighting. It seemed like they severally wounded the creature they were fighting, but the creature was not out yet. It sloppy lunged at the male in the black. Reimu was quick to take action, she throw one of her seals to the ground in front of the guy and the beast, and a barrier was created in front of the guy. The creature bumped into Reimu's "Cautionary Border", the impact caused the creature to tumble down. Then Reimu would fire a few bullet seals at the creature to finish it off.

Reimu then floated down landed on the ground in front of the rest of the group. There was now a strange man in a blue helmet with them. She didn't see him arrive; he must have came when she was attacking, but that didn't matter. "Greetings! Hey... Don't think it's dangerous to be roaming when terrible creatures are about?! Unless fighting these creatures is your job or something? I don't know, for I am new here."

Chun-Li watched as a strange barrier appeared out of no where at the front and saved the man from being crushed by the Metroid. Chun-Li furrowed her eyebrow in confusion. He's capable of creating barriers, too?

"Greetings! Hey... Don't think it's dangerous to be roaming when terrible creatures are about?! Unless fighting these creatures is your job or something? I don't know, for I am new here." She heard a female voice say ahead of her.

Chun-Li quickly ran up to the front, running around the Metroid, and looked at a strange man in blue armour and another girl dressed in red that appeared. She must of been the one who created that barrier, Chun-Li thought. She looked over at the girl, "Oh! Well, welcome to....Japan..?" She said. She wouldn't really call this place "Japan" anymore since Metroids basically rule the whole country. "Fighting these things aren't our job. It would suck to have a job like that." She said as she looked around at all the little fighting party they formed here, "Well, my name is Chun-Li. I come from China. And you, mister..." She pointed at Yuri, "...Came out of no where and helped me fight off this thing. Thank you." She said with a small bow. She than looked at everyone else, "And what should I call you guys?" She asked.

Yuri watched the Metroid get its ass kicked- no, literally, it got it's butt kicked. Little Miss Blue jumped up and kicked the creature again with lightning speed in the middle of its back. Obviously, at this state, the alien creature was dying. However, the alien creature started to go and topple over the lone wolf.

Of course, Yuri Lowell can easily handle such a situation. He was about to go and attack the already-dying monster and make it drop on the spot and not on him, but something... stopped it. A barrier...? Yuri thought. Who could've don- His thoughts were interrupted as a flying girl- yes. Yet ANOTHER thing to put on the list of things you don't see everyday- in strange red and white clothes dropped in and beat the Metroid before landing... using bullets fired from her own hands. "Greetings! Hey... Don't think it's dangerous to be roaming when terrible creatures are about?! Unless fighting these creatures is your job or something? I don't know, for I am new here." She said.

Another newcomer, one in blue... armor and helmet, also came in and asked "Is everyone okay?"

Yuri faced Mr. Blue, sighing because suddenly he was grouped up with 3 complete strangers. "Yeah. We're good."

"Oh! Well, welcome to....Japan..?" Miss Blue welcomed the newcomer in red. "Fighting these things aren't our job. It would suck to have a job like that." Actually... Fighting monsters is a part of my job... Yuri mentally chuckled. True, some costumers went to Brave Vesperia in order to eliminate a certain monster for a certain reason. It's not so tiresome to fight them anyway now.

"Well, my name is Chun-Li. I come from China." Miss Blue introduced herself. "And you, mister..."

Yuri smiled. "Call me Yuri." He said, sheathing his blade. "Yuri Lowell."

"And what should I call you guys?" Chun-Li asked the other two.

"My name is X, and my mission is to protect the humans from these creatures." He explains to the small group before him. Although if there were people that can fight for themselves, X doesn't know how much protecting he would have to do, but he would not return until the threat was over. "My mission would be easier with help, for the sake of Earth, maybe we should team up?" The people in front of him seemed capable of being able to take care of themselves, but these Metroids were tough. "I could hardly handle two of the younger ones and it took a four people to take out one adult, If my mission is going to be a success grouping up would be the best course of action."
