“Haaalp! I am Chrom, ruler of Ylisse! I'm being hunted by brigands! If you help me, I'll see to it that you're handsomely rewarded!”
—Ruger's impersonation of Chrom
Ruger (Luger in the Japanese version) is an enemy boss character from Fire Emblem Awakening.
Ruger was a conman who impersonated Chrom to terrorize a local village. One day he met Cynthia, who was convinced he was really Chrom and became loyal to him. Ruger was skilled enough to convince much of the population into believing he was the real Chrom, so much so that even random mercenaries believed him. However, the charade ended when the real Chrom came and defeated the trickster once and for all. Alternatively, if Ruger escapes from the battle, he will never be seen again. His death note can imply he likes nice things and wishes to be a Prince.
