|We have to have a fourth game. They've talked too much about the rest of Weyard, there was a cliffhanger the size of TBS's, and the other Warriors of Vale still have plotlines to complete (Sheba, I'm lookin' at you). Plus, we need to visit Imil, Bilibin, Kalay, Tolbi, Loho, and the rest of the world.
I'm almost certain we'll see a child of Felix, a child of Sheba (possibly siblings, or even possibly the same individual if Sandshipping is made canon); Takeru and Nowell. Because Matthew doesn't have a fire-based sibling (I think they would have mentioned it…) nor Karis another sibling… (same thing), they have 1 wind-slot to fill besides Sheba's child and 2 fire slots to fill, as well as 1 more water slot.
I doubt any of the previous games' protagonists will be part of the 8 heroes, unless we get 16 heroes by the end with a Reunion event (or 11 heroes if they only allow the 3 kids who got left with the cliffhanger, but 16 would allow Rief and Nowell to reunite and Amiti to learn the truth about his father).
I think it's quite likely that because DD had a similar party make-up to TBS, GS4 will have a similar party make-up to TLA. So we might get a pair of siblings in the first party (Felix's son and Sheba's daughter, or gender-flipped giving us a Wind warrior main protagonist or Earth mage female protagonist, but that's a bit out there for Camelot…), as well as an undisclosed Mars adept, and possibly Nowell, if Piers hooks back up with Felix. We could see Felix and Piers teaching the kids like Isaac and Garet did in DD. The Mars adept would probably be the fourth party member, then, and could be a Kibombo or other Gondowan citizen…
In the second party, we'd have Takeru, obviously, but the other members of the party would be more difficult. Possibly Ahri; I'd have said a Garoh citizen but that would be like a carbon-copy of Sveta (then again, give someone else who can equip claws and knuckles…). An Apojii citizen might be interesting for the Water adept, and a Prox citizen for the last fire…
Then we have the question of whether there will be playable Light or Dark adepts in the next game. That's always possible. It could flow all semblance of pattern out of alignment.
