FFMQ

Reuben is one of Benjamin's four allies from Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. He hails from the town of Fireburg and wields a Morning Star. He is devoted to his father and hometown, but is unsure of how to save them.

Profile Edit

Appearance Edit

Reuben wears armor from head to toe. Most of it is bright red, but his helmet and breastplate have white highlights and the tassets are entirely white. The upper half of his breastplate is light blue and there are blue highlights on his leg armor. His helmet has a yellow crest on the front. Reuben's hair and eyes are both brown, although his hair is mostly hidden.

Personality Edit

Reuben is dutiful and determined in trying to rescue his father and keep him safe, but he is reckless himself. He insists on fighting a monster alone and is thrown off of a ledge. He also covers the extent of his injuries so that Benjamin will go on with the quest, and he ignores his injuries to help Benjamin find Captain Spencer, until he collapses and is forced to recover in Windia.

Story Edit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Benjamin meets Reuben in Fireburg, where Reuben tells Benjamin his father knows the location of the Fire Crystal. However, his father is trapped in a blocked off mountain pass, so Reuben accompanies Benjamin through an abandoned mine to reach the cliff and blow up the boulder blocking the path. The two continue on to the volcano, where they slay the Dualhead Hydra and restore the Fire Crystal.

After the two continue on to the Windia region, but Reuben is attacked by a monster on the Rope Bridge and knocked off onto a ledge. Hurt but alive, he tells Benjamin to continue on while he finds a path back to land. What Reuben discovers is a hidden entrance to the Focus Tower, leading into Doom Castle. He returns when Benjamin defeats Pazuzu and helps him rescue Captain Mac. However, the fighting causes his injuries to act up, so he remains bed-ridden for the rest of the game while Phoebe accompanies Benjamin to Doom Castle.

Spoilers end here.

Gameplay Edit

Reuben's weapon of choice is the Morning Star which acts like an axe weapon, as such it's effective against tree-type, crab-type, turtle-type, and worm-type monsters. His Flame Armor provides protection from Fire attacks.

Etymology Edit

According to the Book of Genesis, Reuben was the first and eldest son of Jacob with Leah. He was the founder of the Israelite Tribe of Reuben.

Red is a primary color that seems to have been chosen as a name for the character due to his association with fire and lava, as well as his red armor. It is somewhat more common as a nickname as opposed to a proper name.
