Original character.

You Ji (ヨウジィ) is a character featured in Bladestorm: The Hundred Years' War. He is Arthur de Richemont's assistant and bodyguard.

Role in Game[]

You Ji comes from what is referred to in the game as the Orient, more likely China. After becoming concerned of some of the French nobles' jealousy of his master, You Ji enlists the player's help to find a messenger carrying a suspicious note.

Once the player captures the mercenary carrying the message, the mercenary willingly hands it over to You Ji. Within the message, he uncovers a plot to ruin Arthur's character. During the French Army's campaign in retaking Paris, You Ji attempts to convince the king of his lord's innocence only to be dissuaded by the latter who merely accepts his "punishment".

Bladestorm: Nightmare[]

During the events of Bladestorm: Nightmare, You Ji continues to remain by Arthur's side even as monsters run amok. He is fought at Île-de-France, but immediately backs down when his lord switches sides. The player can recruit You Ji in Flanders by having Arthur command him to join their attack on Ghent. After receiving praise for his efforts, he will help protect Christine de Pizan's siege weapons from being damaged by the monster troops.

Character Information[]
