Each character also has Heroic Tales they can level up. These are divided into a prologue, and three separate chapters and each provides some backstory to the character. These tasks the player with completing a major challenge and must be completed in order.
In addition to these, the player has a level. Increasing this level is done by experience which can be earned multiple ways.
