Robert first appears in Chapter 9, where he, along with Cain and Alva, is led by Selfina on a mission to guard General Hannibal's mansion from the invading Thracian army. He later joins Leif's army when it rendezvouses with Selfina's squadron.
Robert then goes on to continue supporting Leif in his cause to liberate Northern Thracia from the Grannvale Empire. He joins the royal gurad of the new Kingdom of Thracia thereafter.
Due to his limited characterisation, not much is known of Robert. According to his description on the official website of Thracia 776, he is described as deeply devoted to Selfina, derived from a mother complex that is most likely induced from having been orphaned by the war.
Robert is also known to be meek and bashful by nature, and while he aspires to become a renowned warrior, he is never able to shrug off his timidity.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.
Robert is a low-leveled Arch Knight who joins automatically in Chapter 9 with some problems. His low base stats and Weapon Rank ensure that he will be unable to consistently ORKO or damage enemies in general. Adding to that is that he has no skills, supports no one (although he receives bonuses from Selfina/Glade) and is forced to dismount indoors.
Although blessed with good growths, Robert falls short regardless, given that there are Crusader Scrolls that can be used by anyone to fix their growth rate deficiencies. Furthermore, while he has a fairly high PCC of 3, this is not particularly helpful to him, given that he has no ready access to Killer Bows and has a difficult time doubling and damaging enemies. Finally, he only has a Movement Star of 1. which means that he will only activate it 5% of the time.
In all, Robert is a mediocre unit at base and does not improve much even when trained. In comparison to other units with access to personal weapons, skills, and a wide variety of support options, and/or staves, Robert faces stiff competition for a place in the frontlines.

Robert - Bowman of Leonster (レンスターの弓騎士)
- "Robert's fondest wish was granted when he was assigned to a permanent post in the army of New Thracia. Despite fighting countless battles, he was a nervous wreck when at the royal court or other social functions. Unbeknownst to him, this only added to his popularity among the army's female officers."
