Self Demonstrating: Ringabel
Hello? Is this my date?
Oh, wait... I'm afraid I don't quite recognize you. Hmm? You've come to hear about my life and times? Why, I'm flattered. Here, let me crack open this journal...
Right. First off, I believe there's a name to this story... what was it? Ah, yes, Bravely Default
. I... woke up one morning in the kingdom of Caldisla with no memories of my past and naught but a journal to my name. Said journal contained not past events, but future... there was a girl I was apparently meant to save.
Then, as fate would have it, I was out stargazing when a ruthless, pyromaniacal spellcaster set fire to the old house I'd been lodging in. As I fled this madman's Fire magic, I heard her voice...
What? No, not the spellcaster's! It was... Edea. That was her, accompanying the fire-starting fiend... thanks to her timely telling-off of the Eternian caster, the old house I'd mentioned before was the only thing lost to the flames. Ah, her voice, as if from heaven itself...
Oh, right. The day after, I met with Tiz Arrior and Agnès Oblige in Caldisla's inn. My journal had told me about those two, and quickly volunteered to aid them in battle against the Eternian spellcaster. From there, I traveled across Luxendarc with Tiz, Agnès, and Edea.
What an odd adventure that was. Throughout the course of the adventure, we commandeered an airship, crossed a vast desert, went to a city inhabited entirely by women, broke into an enemy fortress by charging in through the front door, found out that the city on the giant ship was actually an airship
, and fought our way through Eternia's armies, all in a bid to awaken the four Crystals and fill in the Great Chasm. And then, at the Holy Pillar, things got very strange...
Now, the following's a huge spoiler... here it is. As my adventure went on, I learned of my past. On the Grandship, I learned that I was none other than the Eternian Dark Knight, Alternis Dim! (Of course, that would be Anazel D for those of you who purchased the Japanese version.)
But it gets stranger. Our world, Luxendarc, isn't the only one of its kind. There are many parallel Luxendarcs. I was from a different Luxendarc than Tiz, Agnès and Edea- thus, both me and their Alternis existed on the same world.
And behind all this madness? None other than Airy the Fairy. Airy was trying to link the worlds via the "Holy" Pillars she created, creating a Great Chasm in each world in the process... Airy eventually turned on us, but we fought her off. In the center of the Dark Aurora, we defeated Airy one last time before she was devoured by her master, Ouroboros. We promptly fought against Ouroboros, who consumed six Luxendarcs in his fight against us... but thanks to the aid of Lord DeRosso, and of all the other Luxendarcs' versions of us, we killed Ouroboros once and for all.
And there's the end of that tale.
Now, before I go on to discuss the tropes that pertain to me, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the pages of a few others from the same company that brought about Bravely Default
. To be honest, though, talking to those two seems rather hazardous. I personally recommend bringing an Iceflame Shield to Kefka's page
, simply because that madman will throw Firaga in your direction at the slightest whim. And if you visit Sephiroth's page
, stay at least thirty feet away at all times.
Ah, but you're here for tropes that apply to me, right?
Well, this conversation has gotten me thinking about a few things... Now, I suppose you'll want to be returning to the Bravely Default
page? Or perhaps the other Self-Demonstrating Character Pages?
