Riordan (NPC).png
Original Name Ruderek
Alignment Royal Army
Race Human
Occupation Deputy Command of the Royal Army
Royal Academy Headmaster
Location Royal Army Base, Rocheste

Riordan is the Deputy Commander of the Royal Army, Viscount of Rocheste and headmaster of the Royal Academy. He is a role model of a soldier that believes in the idea of being a knight and commanding from above.

Like Gwynn, Riordan strictly follows the rules of the Royal Army, and has no regrets about his actions. For instance, Riordan was willing to destroy all of Hoarfrost Hollow just to retrieve a Holy Artifact.

He holds a firm belief that all good soldiers must absolutely follow orders to the letter, without any kind of emotions getting in the way. This idea always led to a conflict with the current commander of the Royal Army, Keaghan.

Apparently, Riordan seems to dislike the mercenary "rookie". For instance, he tested them to craft the Cadet Ring and the Royal Cadet Set, which Gwynn claims these are "near-impossible" tasks.

Riordan has a wife named Nel, who occasionally brags to him or other cadets.

Just like his brother, who is the current lord of Rocheste, Riordan isn’t naturally a bad person, but he is too stubborn and his words tend to hurt more than he was intending to.

I am Deputy Commander Riordan. I trust no further introduction is needed.
~ 'Riordan'


Spoiler: (Episode 5) Riordan travels to Colhen to retrieve a Holy Artifact for the Pontiff's Court.
Spoiler: (Episode 8) After Glas Ghaibhleann's death, Riordan confronts Keaghan and informs him that he has been stripped of his rank. Acting as High Commander, Riordan orders his soldiers to kill Keaghan, but Gwynn rushes out and pushes Keaghan aside, sacrificing her life. Riordan commands the soldiers to fire again, but Nyle soon shows up in the form of a black smoke. Using his Dark Knight powers, he quickly teleports himself, Keaghan, and the Rookie away.
Since the incident, it is confirmed that Riordan is working alongside with the Pontiff's Court (who were actual traitors, as their prophecy was a complete lie) and Keaghan and the Rookie are labeled as fugitives.

Spoiler: (Season 3 Prologue) On the briefing in Rocheste Castle it is revealed that Riordan is King Ronaun's only brother. After the battle in Fobellow Praire he becomes forgotten like Marrec and Aodhan

  • A glitch in the main quest line causes him to leave the Royal Army Base during Who's Wins? but as of now is unable to return if you have completed the story Destiny. This is currently unresolved.
