It is revealed through Raphael's support conversations with Ignatz that Raphael's parents were killed because they took on a job in the stead of Ignatz's family. Despite this, Raphael wishes to remain friends with Ignatz as he has always been, indicating that what happened is about their parents rather than the two of them.

During the Paralogue Death Toll, Raphael and Ignatz learn that Raphael's parents did not die in an "accident" but rather were collateral damage in a plot hatched by Lorenz's father, Count Gloucester, to kill the previous Duke Riegan. However, Raphael again insists that it is in the past and between their parents, having nothing to do with Lorenz or Ignatz.

PersonalityEdit

Despite the tragedy of his family, Raphael remains optimistic about life and aspires to become a knight. He is focused on honing his muscles and often worries about what is on the menu at the Academy cafeteria. His love for working out and eating is so great that he can often misconstrue the reasoning behind an enemy's motives as related to his interests. At the same time, he has very little interest in academy lectures ad dislikes reading books as he doesn't feel they will help him become a knight.. Raphael loves his younger sister, being the only family he has left and appears to be rather doting on her.

OverallEdit

Secret Book (Artwork)
Subjective: The following part of this article is subjective to the editor's writing. Therefore, it may not work for everyone.

Given his skill levels, Raphael will have easy access to the Fighter class family (Fighter, Brigand, Armored Knight, Brawler, Warrior, Fortress Knight, Grappler, War Master).

Raphael is a relatively straightforward character in that he excels at strength, defense and health, but is weaker everywhere else, especially speed, resistance, and magic. What he lacks in versatility, Raphael more than makes up for it in raw power and toughness, able to take down even the toughest enemies through sheer brute force. When faced with incoming enemy attacks, his relatively solid defense and high health will let him survive most enemy engagements as long as he isn't ganged up on; even though his resistance is low, his high health will tend to let him survive a hit from enemy mages.

If building Raphael to be a War Master, it is recommended that he be promoted to Brigand at level 10 instead of Brawler in order to get access to Death Blow, which is far more useful than Unarmed Combat since Gauntlet weapons tend to last a while before breaking. War Master tends to be Raphael's best class due to his weakness in Riding making it harder to reach Great Knight.

Possible EndingsEdit

"Just a minute! The following section contains spoilers, viewing it will cost a lot. Are you prepared to pay for it?"

Raphael - Beast of Leicester

Raphael returned to his hometown to serve his liege lord as a knight. After years of loyal service, he resigned his duty to devote his attention to the inn that his grandfather and sister had opened during his time away. Eventually he became the inn's proprietor and developed a reputation for astonishingly good cooking.

Raphael - Beast of Leicester & Lysithea - Scholar of Misfortune

Raphael returned to his hometown to serve his liege lord as a knight, and spent his spare time helping out at the inn that his family had opened during his time away. Due to his grandfather's age, he was compelled before long to give up knighthood and manage the inn full-time. Soon after that, the inn began to be frequented by Lysithea and her family, who has renounced all claim to nobility and begun a life as commoners. Lysithea found a kindred spirit in Raphael's sister, Maya, and before long, found herself helping around the place too. Eventually she was put in charge of the kitchen, where it is said she spend the rest of her days happily baking.

Raphael - Beast of Leicester & Leonie - The Blade Breaker II

Leonie took over the mercenary company formerly led by Jeralt. She ran out of money constantly, however, due to sending all of her earnings back to her village, and so developed a reputation for unpaid tavern tabs. When she came upon the inn that Raphael had been helping to run with his family, she was overjoyed to finally find a place that would trust her enough to open a new tab. In her years frequenting the establishment, she accrued such a massive debt to Raphael that the only way to pay him off was to work for him. By the time the debt was finally paid, she had moved in with him. They lived together happily for the rest of their days.

Raphael - Beast of Leicester & Hilda - Free Spirit

Raphael returned to his hometown, where he served his liege lord as a knight for a time. Later, he gave it up to help manage the inn that his family had opened up during his time away. One day, to the great joy of Raphael's sister, Maya, Hilda came to visit. Maya had always treasured the necklace Hilda had made for her. Moved by this, Hilda gave Maya a new gift of a hair hand, which inspired Maya to suggest that Raphael convert the inn into an accessory shop. Hilda decided to stay and help out, and eventually became the shop's proprietor and chief artisan. She moved in with Raphael, and the two spent their lives happily dealing in fashionable accessories.

Raphael - Beast of Leicester & Ignatz - Worldly Artist

Raphael returned to his hometown, where he served his liege lord as a knight, and spent his spare time helping out at the inn that his family had opened during his time away. He was compelled to give up knighthood and manage the inn full-time, however, when his sister Maya suddenly declared her ambition to become an artist and vanished. Years later, when she finally returned, she did so in the company of another artists: her husband, Ignatz. With cheerful support from Raphael's family, Ignatz and his wife rose to prominence and, with their unique style, set the artistic paradigm in Fódlan for a generation.

Raphael and Shamir

Shortly after the war, Shamir gave up the mercenary life and disappeared. Raphael searched for her unsuccessfully for a time, but then gave up and returned home to serve his liege lord as a knight. One day, he was given orders to drive off a group of bandits, but upon investigation, he discovered that all of the bandits' victims were those who lined their pockets by preying upon the innocent. Without warning, Raphael resigned his post, said good-bye to his family, and vanished forever. It is unclear just where he went, but rumors swirled for years of a master archer and a hulking giant who spent their lives as highway robbers, shaking down those who made victims of others.

Raphael and Bernadetta

When Bernadetta first inherited control of House Varley, she hid away and would not involve herself in political or administrative affairs. During this time, it was Raphael who came to her aid, encouraging her to work through her fear of people. The training period was difficult-"humiliating," according to the journals Bernadetta left behind-but in the end, it had its desired effect. The leader of House Varely became an outgoing and authoritative individual, taking part in public policy. She even took on a very muscular husband.
