Love's Vagrant

I'll strike you like a Thundaga to the heart!
~ One of Ringabel's many pickup lines


Ringabel is one of the main protagonists of Bravely Default. A suave ladies' man with a flair for theatrics, he has his sights set on Edea Lee, a feeling that goes unreciprocated for much of the story. In spite of his lecherous antics, his dexterity, piloting ability, and his mysterious journal's ability to foretell the future make him a boon on the party's journey to discover the truth behind Eternia's war and the Crystals.

Standard Equipment: Varies depending on job, generally depicted in the Freelancer, Thief, Black Mage, and Vampire jobs.

Intelligence: Gifted. Ringabel is an amnesiac at the start of the story, being completely unable to remember his past prior to the game's events. Nevertheless, he has retained a good amount of muscle memory, allowing him to pilot most vehicles with ease and can wield most weapons with only a brief amount of practice. He specializes in high-speed combat, possessing the highest dexterity out of the entire party, but is a particularly good swordsman due to his previous vocation as a Dark Knight. His skills only further develop during his journey, allowing him to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Ouroboros by the end of the story. However, he is rather lecherous and his flights of fantasy can get the better of him from time to time.

Weaknesses: Ringabel is rather perverted, which can be distracting for him, Many of his skills and magic spells are reliant on his limited supply of MP. Bravely Second is reliant on SP, which cannot be refilled during battle.
