“Urgh, it hurts... I'm done for!”
—Death Quote in Monshō no Nazo
Ruke (ルーク Rūku, Luke in the fan translations) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem and Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~. He is a fresh recruit of the Altean knights, a member of the 7th platooon alongside Rody, Katarina and the Avatar. He was originally a gambler and views Rody as his rival. Depending on the Avatar's appearance, Ruke will come up with a title for him/her. After the War of Heroes, Ruke retires as a knight and continues living jobless.
According to the Takayashiki Hideo's Mystery of the Emblem novel adaptation, Ruke is 18 years old.

- Cecil - 5%
Ruke is one of the most consistent units in the game, and will rarely turn out bad. Compared with Rody and Cecil, the other two starting cavaliers, he will have an easier time taking hits and dealing damage, but will find it harder to double throughout the game. While he may not get as much Speed or Skill as the other two cavaliers, he makes up for it by high HP, Strength and Defense stats. Overall, Ruke is a very good cavalier that can be relied on.
Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~Edit
"Ruke suddenly retired from knighthood and continued his playboy ways. He lived the rest of his life widely and freely."
