How Ivar joined the Tourney

Ivar (イバル Ibaru) is a shaman in a village that worships Maxwell. He is egotistical, believing he is the only human worthy of Milla's trust. He considers Jude a rival, and acknowledges his own shortcomings during the events of Tales of Xillia. In Tales of Xillia 2, he is employed by Spirius Corporation.

Desperate to prove himself to Maxwell, Ivar joins the second Tourney in search of Myrrah.
