|Unlimited Saga Character|
Ruby is also the main protagonist of the Unlimited Saga novel, released only in Japan.
"An easy-going, energetic sister of a famous fortuneteller. She gets caught up with her sister's problems, and meets a mysterious man named Iskandar.
Whether or not she's in trouble, she always gets by by saying 'Everything will be all right!'"
- Ruby's Scenario: Main Character
- Ventus' Scenario: Playable Character, joins when entering the Carrier Guild in Loch Vaan.
- Mythe's Scenario: She plays a role during Mythe's quest and also makes an appearance during the Festival of Regina Leone in Vaftom.
Ruby is a novice fortuneteller, she tries her best to become as good as her elder sister Sapphire. One day her sister does a reading to a man from the knighthood and sees a terryfying vision which leads to her falling unconcious. Ruby decides that she has to do the readings for her sister to prevent the shop from bankruptcy. She makes inaccurate readings for a few people, but she's so determined to get the readings right that she runs off to "make them right", forcing her friend Hiro into assisting her (much to his dismay). After this succeeds once, she tries it again with a a strange adventurer, however it all ends badly and the man discovers it was all a hoax. He appears to not be too angry and wishes to meet Sapphire, where he tells Ruby's sister that it's her destiny to see The Seven Wonders. Ruby insists on going with the two and Hiro later also follows.
For all the lines from the Storyline itself, go here:
In terms of stats, Ruby can go in one of three directions, whether it be a competent mage (with excellent elemental growth in Fire particularly), a powerful fighter (especially if given an Axe) or a hybrid of the two. Ruby has very low Skill, making her bad with Daggers/Bows/Guns.
She is also one of only two characters (the other being Sapphire) who comes equipped with a Corundum Ring. This allows Ruby, or another party member, to gain a very powerful weapon early in the game (Bliq) if the ring is used as a Blacksmithing base with another Corundum Ring of the opposite element (Sapphire's and Ruby's rings are of opposing elements, making them perfect candidates for the Bliq).

For all the lines to the official storyline to listen to, go here:
- Ruby encounters a lot of characters from several scenarios, even if they are not really involved in her own plot. This doesn't only cover Michelle, but also villains such as Basil Galeos, Kalandorn Alovi, Dagul Bos and many others.
- The story greatly hints at Ruby being in some way connected to the character from her dream after completing the Sixth Wonder. In the Visual Arts Collection to the game, the artwork of her is signed with the name Emerald, this can hardly be a coincidence, she could be Ruby's and Saphire's ancestor, allthough much less known than Leith Torles or Alyce Ambrosia.
- Ruby's potential past may also explain why Iskandar joins the party so quickly. His purpose may be to watch over the new "Emerald" and guide her to an undisclosed destiny.
