Ruven Filnir is a supporting character in Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg, Atelier Elie: The Alchemist of Salburg 2 and Atelier Marie, Elie & Anis: Message on the Gentle Breeze.
Ruven is a wandering adventurer for hire. Originally from the village of Vaisen, Ruven escaped his Kindgom of Shigsal after Shigsal and Domhaid waged war against one another. At the age of five, his village was destroyed, and he was seperated from his parents. Ruven fled and eventually found his way to Salburg.
Since he was separated from his parents, he still holds hope that they are alive and well. It is Ruven's dream to eventually find his parents and to reunite with them.
Ruven is the first adventurer that Marie can recruit into the party. He is cheap to hire in the beginning of the game, but his weapon is weak. He can be found at the Tavern.
If Ruven's friendship level reaches a high enough level by December of Year 5, he will tell Marie that he is leaving the kingdom in search of his parents. From this point on, he will be permanently gone from the game, and he will be unavailable to hire.
Ruven has left Salburg and is still searching for his parents.
After befriending him enough, he will report that he has finally found information on his father's whereabouts. It turns out that his parents appear to have been looking for him too, travelling around settlements in the Salburg area. Ruven decides to stay in Salburg until the day his parents reach the city.
Soon afterwards, Ruven will come to Elie's workshop and announce he has found his parents. However, he is not sure if he should return to his hometown and live with his parents, or stay in Salburg, the town he has come to like through his adventurer life. The player will be presented with a choice between the two. If the player tells Ruven to return home, he will no longer be recruitable. If the player asks him to stay, the artwork "Beyond the Sunset" will be shown and Ruven will thank Elie for helping him make up his mind.
