“S-Someone! Come and defend me! It is all over if I am hurt!”
—Roartz in Binding Blade.
Roartz is the boss of Chapter 20A: The Liberation of Ilia (Ilia)/Chapter 20B: The Silver Wolf (Sacae) in Fire Emblem: Binding Blade. Roartz is one of the two cowardly Etrurian nobles who turned against their country and joined Bern when King Mordred was captured. In Chapter 20A, he was put in charge of Murdock's Ilian headquarters, Castle Edessa, which formerly belonged to Zelots, leader of the Ilian mercenary knights, after Murdock decided to return to Bern. In Chapter 20B, he was defending a large manor on the outskirts of Bulgar against Roy and his army after Brunya decided to return to Bern.
- Vs. Douglas
Roartz: Douglas... Hmph! After all that you said, you too are following those with power!
Douglas: Perhaps it may seem that way from the outside. But there is no hesitation in my heart now.
Roartz: Silence! I have just about had enough of you. Die here!
“W-Wait... Be my servant! It is still not too late... I shall...forgive your crime of turning your blade...toward me... Guh...!”
