— Ruben, to his army

(Japanese: ルーベン Ruben) was a knight of Macedon who was the leader of a large number of deserters from the country's army in Aurelis. Having established a base of operations in an abandoned Aurelis fort, Ruben and his forces pillaged Aurelian villages mercilessly. This eventually caught the attention of Minerva and Hardin, who led a small group out to investigate.

BS Fire Emblem: Archanea War Chronicles

Role

Ruben claimed to have deserted the Macedonian army out of dislike for its commander in Aurelis, Princess Minerva. By the time Minerva and Hardin's group found the fortress headquarters of the deserters, Ruben had forced Frost, a Macedonian bishop, into serving in his forces by threatening Frost's family. Upon hearing of Minerva's approach, Ruben appeared to take pleasure in the idea of personally "putting that bitch in her place", and denounced Minerva as a bigot who is forced to serve her tyrannical brother Michalis (which was admittedly true). He died in the ensuing battle, and his army of deserters was wiped out.

Role

As in BS Fire Emblem, Ruben claimed to have deserted the Macedonian army out of dislike for its commander in Aurelis, Princess Minerva. By the time Minerva and Hardin's group found the fortress headquarters of the deserters, Ruben had forced Frost, a Macedonian bishop, into serving in his forces by threatening Frost's family. Upon hearing of Minerva's approach, Ruben appeared to take pleasure in the idea of personally "putting that bitch in her place", and denounced Minerva as a bigot who is forced to serve her tyrannical brother Michalis (which was admittedly true).

Quotes

Battle quotes

Come at me! I'm not the one who's about to die!
— Ruben in New Mystery of the Emblem
Munchin' Manaketes! Am I surprised to face you directly in the battlefield, Princess Minerva. [...] Heh...! I don't take orders from you anymore. For some reason, the folks at Macedon worship you royals as if you were gods. Yet, the crown prince fancies himself a patricide, the older sister is a charmless buffoon... and the younger sister is a brat whose only talent is getting kidnapped. Who on earth could put up with the stupid military, when even the country's like that too? Wouldn't you agree, Minerva the Buffoon! [...] Heh! Not if I kill you first!
— Ruben facing Minerva in New Mystery of the Emblem

Gyaaaah!
