“Funny story: I decided to break in here and clean the place out- and then I got caught. Hilarious, right? Comedy gold.”
—Rickard in Shadow Dragon.

Rickard (リカード, Rikādo, Ricard in the Japanese version and Ricardo in the fan translations) is a thief who appears in Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, Fire Emblem: Mystery of the EmblemFire Emblem: Archanea Saga and the remakes to those games. Rickard is a very skilled and optimistic thief, who greatly admires Julian (to the point that he ends his sentences to Julian with heart symbols and Julian states he will give people the wrong impression in the second book). He often addresses Julian as 'Chief' (or as his 'Big Bro' in the Japanese version).

OverallEdit

Rickard is a second recruitable thief in this game, but has lower stats in HP, Skill, Luck, & Defense than Julian does. Considering Julian joins earlier than Rickard with better growth rates, his usefulness downgrades him to picking locks in the shadows. However, he should not be ignored entirely. He can serve as a replacement to Julian if he died after Chapter 6. He still has passable growths, but his low HP and Defense can make him rather fragile. It is a plausibility to give him a Seraph Robe, Secret Book, and Dracoshield, but that could mean putting in a little bit more effort to train him than others. If putting in more effort is undesirable, it would be wise just to use Julian. Overall, he is passable, but passing him on for Julian is highly considerable.

EndingEdit

Shadow DragonEdit

Big-Time Thief

Rickard returned home to live in peace- or so he claimed, even as the area experienced a surge in break-ins and purse-snatchings.

Julian's Pal

"After the war, Rickard returned to thievery yet again."

QuotesEdit

As an EnemyEdit

“Has anyone seen my big bro Julian?”
—Rickard's opening lines in battle in Mystery of the Emblem Book 1 and Book 2

Recruit conversationEdit

“...Wow! Really?! A prince, you say? Thanks for springin' me! I'm Rickard. Just a small-time thief, mind you, but I've got big aspirations! I broke in here to clean the place out, and instead it was me that got my clock cleaned... Since you saved my hide, I guess the least I can do is lend you my services in return.”
—Recruit conversation with Marth

Julian recruit
Julian: What the- Rickard? What are you doin' in here?
Rickard: Oh, uh...hey there, Chief! Been a long time, huh? So, funny story: I decided to break in here and clean the place out- and then I got caught. Hilarious, right? Comedy gold. Ok, your turn. What are YOU doin' here?
Julian: Me? I've washed my hands of thievery and joined the forces of justice.
Rickard: Ohhh really? Justice? So then this wouldn't have nothin' to do with some new lady friend? You always did have a soft spot for a pretty face and right features-
Julian: Wha- Can it, you little fink! I said it's about justice! I'm entitled to have a moral crisis now and then! ... You know what? Just for that, YOU are gonna work for me, startin' right now.
Rickard: What ? Do I have to...? Well, all right. You dive a hard bargain, but what can I say? I missed ya, Chief. Just make sure I get a cut of the haul!

In FE12Edit

RecruitmentEdit

Julian: Hey, Rickard! I see you haven't tired of stealin'.
Rickard: Ah! Chief! How nice to see ya. Well, I was plannin' on workin' with you and makin' loadsa money, but you had to go and quit the business! Fallin' head over heels for that beautiful cleric, and then dumpin' me... That's just too cruel! Did our love really mean that little to you?
Julian: Can it, you little fink!! People'll get the wrong idea about us, if you keep talkin' like that. Anyway, forget about thievin' and come with me to fight for justice.
Rickard: Hmm... alright then! I'll follow you anywhere. I do adore ya, Chief!

Death QuotesEdit

“Crap, I blundered...”
—Rickard's Death Quote in Mystery of the Emblem

“Big bro... I won’t be around anymore. You mustn’t be lonely...”
—Rickard's Death Quote in Mystery of the Emblem

“Dang it... What a way to- nngh- go...”
—Rickard's Death Quote in Shadow Dragon

TriviaEdit

  • In the continuity of the novel adaptation of Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi by Takayashiki Hide, Rickard's age is given as 23. This is a contrast with his appearance in the games, due to his childlike personality and appearance (specifically his wide eyes, a common trait among the children in the Fire Emblem series). He is most likely in his early teens.
  • In Shadow Dragon, Rickard is held in a cell that he, being an enemy thief, very well could have opened, impling he was not held against his will or was unaware he could open the door.
  • In Monshō no Nazo, Rickard has his own theme, composed mostly on the flute.
