My apologies. My name is Ricard. I used to be a dragoon until...well, I don't need to spell it out for you.
The Warriors of Light meet Ricard when they visit Deist. His leg is injured and he briefly mentions Abel and Barbara. With the help of a boy, the injured Ricard meets Barbara outside Highwind Tower, whom the had thought to be dead. Ricard recognizes the Abel's Spear and later, Ricard suggests the Warriors of Light go to Capo.
