015 Rutger

Came to wield a sword with a desire to seek revenge on Bern.
A swordsman from Bulgar in Sacae. On a journey to avenge his family that was killed by Bern’s soldiers. He was employed under Laus until he saw Roy’s party fighting Bern when he saved Clarine. He joined the party right after. He is quiet and prefers to be alone, but is a longtime friend of Dieck.

Profile
Gender—————————————–Male
Estimated Age———————————-20s
Title—————————–Lone Swordsman
Origin—————————————–Sacae
Status————————————Mercenary
Weapon————————————–Sword

While born in Sacae, Rutger is not purely Sacaen. That became clear in a support conversation with Dieck.
Originally he simply lived with the aim to enact revenge upon Bern, but while fighting with Roy’s party, he begins to hesitate with living solely for that purpose. The head of the Kutolah tribe, Dayan, and “Sword Saint” Karel were especially large influences on Rutger.
After the war, he disappeared, supposedly no longer seeking revenge.

015 Rutger

ベルンへの復讐の心が彼にまた剣を振るわせる
 サカ地方、ブルガル出身の剣士。過去にベルン兵に同族を殺され、その復讐のために旅を続けていた。当初はリキアのラウス候に雇われていたがクラリーネ救出の際、ロイたちがベルンと敵対していることを知って一行に加わる。寡黙で独りを好むが、ディークとは旧知の仲である。

プロフィール
性別・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・男
推定年齢・・・・・・・・・・・・20代
称号・・・・・・・・・・・・孤高の剣士
出身・・・・・・・・・・・・・サカ地方
身分・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・傭兵
武器・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・剣

 出身こそサカ地方だが、ルトガーは純粋なサカの民ではない。そのことはディークとの支援会話で明らかになる。
 当初はベルンへの復讐のみが生きる目的だった彼も、ロイたちとともに戦いを続けるうち、生きかたに迷いが生じ始める。特にクトラ族の族長ダヤン、「剣聖」カレルとの出会いは、ルトガーに影響を与えたようだ。
 動乱終結後、彼はいずこかへと消えていった。その先にあるのは復讐ではないはずだ。
