- Citizen Almanac profile description
Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum (エバン・ドリスファン・ニャンダール Eban Dorisufan Nyandāru?, "Evan Drysphan Nyandal") is the protagonist of Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom. He is a prince who became a king after his father, King Leonhard, died a month before Roland arrives at Ding Dong Dell.
Evan was born the son of King Leonhard of Ding Dong Dell. After the premature death of Evan's mother, Ding Dong Dell handmaiden Aranella was chosen to look after the prince. Aranella served as Evan's governess and bodyguard and the two became very close.
When Evan was thirteen years old, Leonhard was poisoned as a part of his chancellor Otto Mausinger's plot to take the throne. Leonhard succumbed to the slowly-administered poison and died, leaving Evan the sole heir to the throne of Ding Dong Dell.
Aranella learned from one of Mausinger's soldiers about the poisoning, and that Mausinger planned to stage a coup before Evan's coronation.
Despite rightfully being king, Evan was unable to form his kingsbond before the coup which meant he wasn't strong enough to fight back. He had planned to reclaim his lost kingdom and seek revenge but instead decided to start a new kingdom to make a world where there was no war for Aranella.
He's working with Roland, Tani, Batu, Leander, Bracken, and the other citizens of Evermore to get a signature from the ruler of each of the four major cities for the Declaration of Interdependence. His dream is for everyone to live happily ever after in peace. He is from the cat tribe and half Grimalkin on his father's side, half human on his mother's side.
Evan's favorite food is fish, and he is afraid of Socktopuses. Despite being a king, when it comes to smaller tasks, he says he does not work well under pressure, yet always rises to the challenge.
Evan eventually defeats the kingmakers from all regions. And finally defeats Doloran and his kingmaker bringing peace. Eventually, it is revealed that the boy he was talking to was his son Ferdinand, who ended up uniting the entire world.
