"We're not very good at guarding things, are we?"

Rikie was the mother of Rakgi, who lost her husband after he became the bearer of the Rune of Punishment. Over time, she and Rakgi searched for any trail of her husband and eventually found their way to the Kingdom of Obel where she learned of the history of the Rune of Punishment and came to accept her husband's death.

A strong woman, she raised Rakgi by herself from a young age and together the two lived in the Ruins of Obel. When the hero comes to Obel, Rikie discovers he has become the latest bearer of the Rune of Punishment and, wanting to be close to the rune her husband once bore, agreed to leave the island and join him.

Following the Island Liberation War, Rikie would return to her home on Na-Nal Island, leading a quiet life with her son.
