"As a humble scientist, I would like nothing more than to answer your questions."
—Bacchus D-79

Bacchus D-79 is a Morphus scientist hailing from the technologically advanced planet, En II. He is one of the main characters in Star Ocean: The Last Hope.


Star Ocean: The Last Hope

Bacchus willingly converted his real body into a cyborg in order to handle higher thoughts and complex calculations in his work. Due to his mechanized form and a core processor for a brain, he has difficulty expressing his emotions to others. He also possesses a strong sense of justice. Having a cyborg body has its advantages, for example, Bacchus has the ability to cloak himself. He mostly speaks stoically and in monotone. During his encounters with Welch, she dresses as a loli maid, thus disturbing him greatly.

In Bacchus's ending, which is obtained if Bacchus has enough AR toward Edge, Bacchus is back on En II with his wife, Freesia. He tells her that, since the Missing Procedure has been vanquished, his duty as a Morphus was fulfilled and that he wishes to devote his life to her. He also talk about the comrades he met on his journey, how they made him feel a "whole new level of warmth". As he tells Freesia about how he met them, Freesia kisses him, and tells him to tell her about all of it later on.

"It doesn't matter how powerful ordinance is if it doesn't hit the target."
—Bacchus during the assault on Nox Obscurus.

Bacchus uses arm cannons and missile launchers inbuilt in his armor for long range physical damage. With his high defense and powerful Special Arts he is very effective at short range, but he is also very strong in the back row.

Bacchus D-79 is also proficient in the Engineering skill, which allows him to update his weapons and armor, and also create weapons for other comrades, and items with varied effects on the battlefield.
