Max (マックス・レムナンド・ヴィヴィアージュ, Max Remunando Viviaajyu) is a character in Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.
Even though Max is handsome, he seems to be quite spoiled and sometimes even rude. Max also seems to often gloat about his skills in fighting, but no one seems to believe him and he often gets Kyle to get monster drops for him in order to prove his boasting.
Even though Max is rather spoiled, he does have a kind side to him, especially towards his family. He is fond of his sister, Rosalind, and if Kyle dates her, he will support their relationship and help Kyle out, providing expensive and rare gifts to help make his sister happy.
Max is known in the village as "Mr. Perfect" but admits to having some weaknesses. He has the habit of drinking a cup of milk before sleep and is afraid of insects. He also cares about the earth. He is also against war, and when he asks what you think the world needs, he will become angry if you reply that "we need a military facility."
Max has fair complexion with long light blonde hair and blue eyes. He wears a formal blue tunic with a fine cloth belt and a long, white, fur-lined coat that hangs off the shoulders and low on the sleeves. His cuffs are lace, and so is is collar. His boots are similarly embroidered in a tasteful fashion.
Herman's son and Rosalind's older brother. He is also the only known son of the De Sainte-Coquille family. He is friends with Barrett, and asks Kyle to try and befriend him as well, despite his rough edges. He hangs out with Julia on Festival days.
In the first generation, Max is one of Kyle's friends. He plays an active role in Kyle's romance with Rosalind, if he has one, and uses his family money to pay Kyle generously for quests, helping him get set up in Alvarna.
If Kyle married Rosalind in the first generation and Aria or Aaron talks to him, he will get upset if they call him uncle, but he still seems to care about his niece or nephew, telling them that they can play in his manor if they want. He will also give them tips about fighting. Max also jokes around more with both Aria and Aaron.
Max has expensive tastes, but he can still be befriended relatively easily if you don't mind farming Goblins for Proof of Warrior.
