Navigators are crew members in charge of leading a ship within a fleet, some of which are based on historical explorers. They are found in various ports and will join depending on the player's level and charisma; low-leveled navigators are more likely to be recruited than experienced ones. It is recommended to recruit at least three or four inexperienced mates with high loyalty values since their stat growth tends to be higher upon leveling up. Disloyal navigators are more likely to desert unless they are constantly paid. Characters on standby will serve as the first mate, giving players advice and tips when needed.
Below is a list of character stats and their functions. Only Leon's stats are adjustable in the PC and console versions.
