The main character, Fidel is a 23-year-old swordsman living in the Village of Sthal on the borders of the Kingdom of Resulia. He was taught by his father, Daril Camuze, the kingdom's most proficient warrior and guards the village with his skills.
Fidel also follows the Star Ocean tradition by being the blue-haired protagonist in the odd-numbered Star Ocean games (1's Ratix Farrence and 3's Fayt Leingod have blue hair, while 2's Claude Kenny and 4's Edge Maverick are blond).
Fidel wields one-handed sword in battle. He is a strong, durable fighter and has multi-hit moves to pummel the enemy.
Fidel's skills are largely reminiscent of Fayt Leingod, Claude C. Kenny and Edge Maverick, sharing names as well as animations for their abilities. Fidel's normal attack animations are nearly identical to Fayt's.
As people without the ability to use Signeturgy, Fidel and Victor can use special moves by consuming MP. Fidel specializes in Camuze-style swords-based moves.

Fidel's Reserve Rush attack is "Ethereal Blast", also similar to the identically named ability of Fayt. When activated, Fidel summons a massive amount of energy, lifts into the air and forms wings out of this energy.
After a moment, he unleashes that energy into a concentrated blast, dealing massive damage over several hits until the blast widens, covering the entire field, dealing 3 more extra-powerful hits.
Against most enemies, Ethereal Blast will achieve victory immediately, though at later portions of the game boss type enemies will be able to withstand even the most powerful blast. This requires strategic use of filling and consuming the Reserve Rush gauge for optimal damage.
Fidel's Attribute Scaling
Given that Fidel joins the Federation military after the end of the main events of the story, it is possible that Fidel's style of swordsmanship is later integrated into the military and taught to future soldiers, becoming a popular style of combat. This is reinforced by the fact that Fayt Leingod in Till the End of Time uses the same style of swordsmanship as Fidel, but is using it hundreds of years after the events of Integrity and Faithlessness.
