One of my favorite series, Secret of mana, anyone ever played Secret of mana or seiken desentsu 3
Great games, if you've played sword of mana, that game was nothing compared to these two, but children of mana, still is a good game but these 2 are the greatest. The second one (Seiken desentsu 3) Lets you pick 3 characters out of the 6 available, depending on your main one, you will have a differant path to take, and the 2 other characters as well!
