While this title has many exciting features to pull you in, from its fast-paced combat to its massive map with heaps of locations to explore, the Tower of Fantasy characters are a true highlight. Whether you’re chatting to an NPC about a lost cat or pulling a playable simulacra from the banners, their designs, lore, and personalities are truly engaging.
The current roster of playable Tower of Fantasy characters, also known as simulacra, is relatively small, and, due to it still being in beta, there’s a chance Hotta Studio may tweak their stories and designs before the final release. However, they each boast a gorgeous design, intriguing bios, and powerful weapons, making pulling each of them extremely worthwhile. In this guide, we introduce you to each of the Tower of Fantasy Simulacra, and go into a few details about what makes them so special.
We’ll update this guide as Hotta Studio tweaks the characters or releases new ones, so be sure to check back in the future. You can also take a look at our Tower of Fantasy preview to find some of our thoughts on the game so far, and our Tower of Fantasy codes to get you a head start as soon as you step foot in this exciting, post-apocalyptic world.

Weapon: Thunderous Halberd (volt halberd)
Bio: Born in Warren Snowfield under the name Manaka, she dreamed of stepping out of the land of pure snow to see the rest of the world.

Weapon: Nightingale’s Feather (grievous bow)
Bio: Bai Ling is the current leader of the HT201 Shelter, and is therefore in charge of its daily operation and combat command. However, she only took the role recently, and as such she still feels a little overwhelmed and flustered by all the responsibilities. Regardless, she’s considerate, responsible, meticulous, good at bookkeeping, and clearly has what it takes to ensure the shelter remains in good shape.

SSR Tower of Fantasy simulacra
Weapon: Negating Cube (flame cube/catalyst)

Bio: Tsubasa is a former Hykros employee, ex-Hyena officer, and, more recently, a part of the Heirs of Aida. Highly skilled beyond her years, she’s a talkative and opportunistic individual, always keeping her fingers on the pulse to ensure she’s always ‘where it’s buzzing’.

Weapon: Scythe of the Crow (flame scythe)
Bio: A straight-talking, no-nonsense brawler, King is known to be extremely bold and brash, and is always ready to resort to violence at the drop of a hat. He’s tough and committed when on a mission, but rarely has a penny to his name despite all the fights he wins.

Weapon: Guren Blade (grievous sword)
Bio: A righteous, dominant, and fierce lady, Claudia certainly isn’t the type of person you want to mess with. She’s heralded as the captain and commander of all heroes and is known to strike fear into the hearts of her enemies – right before she slices them in two with her powerful, one-handed sword, of course. However, she can be indecisive and has a secret love for cats.
Favourite gifts: everyday items, rare items, decorations
Weapon: Thunderblades (volt dual blades)
Bio: A powerful, quick, and cunning assassin, Crow is faster than the lightning he wields, and seeks to punish evildoers and cleanse them of their sins. He’s optimistic, is a sucker for cats, and often hides at night, lurking in the shadows as he plans out his next move.

Weapon: Rosy Edge (ice shell claymore)
The senior executor of Hykros, Meryl’s outstanding combat skills have enabled her to excel in even the most dangerous of missions. She can seem a little frosty as she keeps her distance from everyone and attempts to hide her feelings, but she’s far from emotionless.
Favourite gifts: saved, rare items
Weapon: Dual EM Stars (volt dual pistols)
Bio: Laidback and free-spirited, Samir may seem chill, but she’s also the top gunslinger in the land – even among elite Executors. She also has a bit of a wild side, and enjoys playing jokes and pranks on others.

Other Tower of Fantasy characters
Shirli is an optimistic, upbeat, and outgoing young girl with a reckless streak. She helps you when you first arrive unconscious at the shelter, and as such, you form a strong bond with her. She aspires to be a strong, problem solver capable of helping others like her big brother, Zeke.
Shirli’s big brother and leader of the Astra Shelter, Zeke carries a heavy weight of responsibility as he feels responsible for protecting everyone around him. He can come across as a little cold and emotionless, but he’s fiercely protective of Shirli, who is his only living relative (and the only person capable of cracking his resolve).
Right hand of the Sage and an Angel of Clemency, Frigg follows her master unconditionally. She’s straightforward and has a unique philosophy and outlook on life.
Having suffered mutations from the Heirs of Aida’s modifications during her transformation into an Angel of Clemency, Nemesis is usually quite quiet and introverted but becomes a merciless killing machine when put under the leader of the Heirs of Aida’s control.
