“I am Ruka, from a village north of Gram. I escaped from Codha's oppression and fled here to Vierge. I am merely a hunter, but please allow me to help defeat the bandits.”
Ruka (ルカ Ruka) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. He is the younger brother of Raquel. In the past, he was saved by Raquel during a bandit attack on their village. To escape from Codha's oppression, he flees to Verge, where he serves as an archer. It is implied that he has a crush on Sasha.
If he visits Raquel's house in Map 4 (before Sasha recruits her) and both of them are sent with Runan after the first route split, Ruka and his sister will have a special event in Map 26A. If the second option is chosen, he will be killed by an enemy soldier, leading Raquel to discard her vow to never take any human lives.
He can be chosen to join Runan's army out of 4 possible characters (Lee, Narron, Ezekiel and himself) at Verge Village in Map 2. Subsequently, if he has not already been chosen, he can be recruited into Holmes's army later, out of 4 possible characters (the 3 not chosen before and Lionel).

Ruka is fast, accurate and not much else. He has high speed, skill and luck with a low base in strength hurt even further by an average growth in the stat. Ruka's only saving grace is the fact that he's not terribly pathetic, ending up decent enough for you not too regret using him too too much. However, the other Archer is much better and he will fall behind. If you want to unlock Raquel's ability to kill humans, then grab Ruka, otherwise, you shouldn't bother.
