Rowen J. Ilbert (ローエンJ.イルベルト Rooen J. Iruberuto?) is a playable character in Tales of Xillia. He is a butler in the noble class Sharil family under Lord Cline Sharil. In the past, he was a famous Rashugalan strategist known as the "Conductor". He meets Milla Maxwell and Jude Mathis during their first visit to Sharilton, and he later joins them in their quest.

History

Jude and Milla initially encounter Rowen while they are browsing a market stall in Sharilton. He is there escorting Driselle Sharil, the daughter of the family he serves. After the party gets trapped by city guards in pursuit of Jude and Milla, Rowen helps them escape the city and joins the party thereafter.

Appearance and Personality

Rowen

Rowen's status image in Tales of Xillia.

Rowen is a butler, and as such, he is dressed in formal attire including a tailcoat jacket. He has long, white hair that he keeps tied back in a neat ponytail. Rowen is always very calm even in tense situations, where he will often make jokes to ease the atmosphere. Even though he appears to have an ever-gentle expression, he can deliver a piercing gaze with his eyes, indicating that he can be very serious when the time calls for it. At 62 years of age, he is the oldest playable Tales character so far, based on appearance. He often has amusing conversations with Alvin, poking fun at Jude not knowing about "adult" things, and he sometimes even jokes about his own age.

Fighting Style

Rowen primarily uses a saber as his weapon. However, he is capable of attacking from a distance with concealed knives. Rowen's primary stat in his Lilium Orb is Intelligence, as he is a specialist in offensive spirit magic. Rowen is a master of magic and has many long distance spells at his disposal, covering all elemental types except Dark. His characteristic skill, "Arte Tuning" (術後調律 Jutsugochouritsu?), grants him further mastery over his artes.

When Rowen casts a spell, various button inputs will appear, enabling the activation of his tuning ability. This has a wide range of effects on Rowen's artes. Some inputs will add extra hits to a spell, while others will allow him to control the movement of the spell. Rowen is the only Spirit Magic user who can do this, making his spells a formidable contribution to the party. Rowen's partner characteristic support skill is "Auto Magic Guard" (オートマジックガード Ootomajikkugaado?). While linked with Rowen, if he is the secondary partner he will automatically use Magic Guard against enemy spells, which protects both him and the primary partner. Rowen is best utilized against Magic-type monsters whose specialty are spell artes.
