073 Rath

The proud, young man of the Kutolah Tribe
A Sacaen nomad in Laus, and the son of the Kutolah Tribe chief.  While he is quiet and his expression does not change much, he is proud of his heritage and does not hesitate to assist a fellow plainsman. From those words and actions, he is at his base a serious person. He helped his fellow Sacaen Lyn by accompanying her on her journey.

A witch doctor foresaw a calamity that involved “everything engulfed in crimson flames.” In order to stop this, Rath had separated from his tribe. One can easily imagine the incredible hardships he has faced since then. He has lived on his own ever since leaving the tribe, likely due to his tendency to speak very little and stoic nature. However, Rath had by no means cast aside his pride in his tribal heritage and managed to live on. Ever since the time he left his tribe, the awareness of Rath being the son of the tribe chief known as the “Grey Wolf” had grown even deeper.

呪い師の予言した「すべてを焼き尽くす暗い赤」という災いを止めるため、幼くして部族を離れているラス。彼がかなりの苦労をしてきていることは容易に想像できる。口数や表情が少ないのも、部族の外で一人で生きてきたためなのだろう。しかし、ラスは決して部族の誇りを捨てずに生き抜いてきた。部族を出た当時から、自分が「灰色の狼」と呼ばれる族長の息子である、という自覚が深く刻みこまれていたのであろう。
