Wol is a tall, muscular man with short, white hair, and hazel eyes. His appearance changes depending on the job class he is currently assigned with. He normally wears armor on his sides with pauldrons on his shoulders and armored sleeves, with a black tight material with gold ornaments concealing his front, leaving his back bare and a variety of tattoos visible. Wol wears also what appears to be leggings, which are covered with armor.
Wol is sarcastic and has doubts about the prophecy. Despite his reservations and unwillingness towards it, he continues on his journey, mainly out of curiosity. Whenever Princess Sarah makes advances toward him, Wol pushes them away. Despite his cold and seemingly uncaring exterior, he can also be sad and angry as seen when he loses his dear friend Mog.
Wol arrives in an unknown world with no memories. A mysterious voice helps guide him through his journey and tells him that "This country is the land of Palamecia, a place bereft of any hope. Its people wander in melancholy, their hearts untouched by the Light of Hope."
Wol uses the abilities and weapons of a Warrior, Mage, Ranger and Monk, depending on the equipped job card. Each job features branching evolutions upon completing their respective skill panels and can provide Wol with new appearances and weapons.
