Description

Hobbies: Cooking
Values: His silver bracelet
Likes: Ball noodles
Dislikes: Ghosts, the Novus Orbis Librarium

Ragna the Bloodedge is a wanted criminal with an extraordinarily large bounty on his head (well in the trillions) for attempting to destroy the Novus Orbis Librarium, and is Jin and Saya's older brother. He is a playable character and the main protagonist of the BlazBlue series. He possesses heterochormia due to the side effect from assimilating the Azure Grimoire into his body.
Ragna is sardonic, rude, and abrasive to anyone he comes across. He is also quick to anger, stubborn, and never misses a chance to use as much vulgar language as possible. In this regard, Ragna is similar to the stereotypical anime delinquent. This is caused mainly by Yuuki Terumi practically destroying Ragna's life, which has created a mass of hatred in him; stronger than that of any other individual. Ragna often becomes infuriated at first sight of Terumi, which he often takes advantage of through taunting him. However, even in cases where he cannot win or is on the brink of death, Ragna possesses an undying will and refuses to give up, something many characters either hate or admire.

Beneath his gruff exterior, however, Ragna does possess a softer, more compassionate side. He chooses to keep up his public front because of the path he chose – that of revenge. He does genuinely care for certain people, such as Taokaka, Rachel, Noel, Jubei and, to an extent, his brother, Jin. He spared Arakune's life due to Litchi's pleas, and in his Arcade Mode, he directly references his promise to Litchi to let him live after he defeats him. Also, despite Jin's role in the destruction of his life, still cares for him as a brother.

Ragna is an extremely powerful individual within the world of BlazBlue, having been trained in combat and ars magus by Jubei, wielding an Azure Grimoire and a rather unusual sword called Blood-Scythe, he is able to easily take down entire squads of the Librarium by himself. Being the wielder of an Azure Grimoire, Ragna is able to manipulate darkness in the form of the various body parts of the Black Beast through his Drive, Soul Eater, which also absorbs the opponent's life force to replenish his own. By utilizing an ability called "Blood Kain", Ragna is able to use his Azure Grimoire to greatly enhance his physical abilities and strengthens his Drive, although it wears down his own life force during its duration.

Description

A hero who appeared six years after the Black Beast appeared. He gets along well with Jubei and Celica. He is the one who stopped Black Beast for one year, which allowed the Six Heroes' to create Ars Magus.

Appears only in the Six Heroes scenario.

<hidden by spoiler settings>In reality, Bloodedge is actually a time-displaced Ragna, who was thrown into the past and stripped of most of his memories, along with the ability to move his right arm or see with his right eye. At first, the only thing he can remember is his name 'Ragna', but he continues to regain fragments of his memories as the story progresses as he traveled with Celica and Mitsuyoshi.
