Gilandor Yul Svent (ジランドール・ユル・スヴェント Jirandooru Yuru Suvento?), also known as Gilland (ジランド Jirando?), is a major antagonist in Tales of Xillia and supporting character in Tales of Xillia 2. In Tales of Xillia, he is the leader of Exodus, intending to use Rieze Maxia and its inhabitants as fuel for Elympios. In Tales of Xillia 2, Gilland appears in the fractured dimension F4216, where he has captured the Great Spirit of Light, Aska, and uses it as the power source of the Oscore Plant.
Appearance and Personality
In Tales of Xillia, Gilland has short silver hair with red tips combed to the back and two red bangs framing his face. He has red-brown eyes and white marks on the left side of his face. His attire consists of a black undervest with narrow, silver, and vertical stripes, from which four blue long tails protrude. He wears a blue bolero with a black cape attached to the left shoulder, black gloves, baggy pants, and shoes. In Tales of Xillia 2, Gilland appears in a fractured dimension where, with a different social position, his style differs from the one seen in the game's prequel. He now has silver hair with fringe, lacking colored tips, and he wears a black undershirt with a red tie, a white vest, and a blue coat.
Gilland fights with a gun, avoiding close-combat, which he delegates to to the spyrite Celsius. The two have a linked arte, which can only be initiated by Gilland. Despite his significant role in the plot, Gilland lacks a mystic arte despite some earlier major antagonists using them. While reappearing in a fractured dimension in Tales of Xillia 2, Gilland is not faced in battle at all despite other returning human bosses participating in battles against the party.
