Ruby is a character in Dark Cloud. She is the third ally who joins Toan on his journey.


Ruby was a genie once, but her mischievousness landed her in a magic lamp. She is found by King of Queens and brought to his palace. Things don't work out, so King gives Toan the lamp. Ruby is released from captivity by Toan, and after hearing his story and how the Dark Genie is not only stronger than her, but also shaming the name of her kind, she decides to accompany him.

During a scene with Jack, one of King's lackeys and owner of the weapon store, Ruby is referred to as King's wife.



Ruby Concept Art

Concept art

Ruby has light violet hair, green eyes and dark skin. She wears large amounts of jewelry, including a gold belt, necklace, bracelets, earrings, and most importantly, her rings, which she uses to cast her spells. Her clothing consists of white harem pants, a small red top that exposes her stomach and her cleavage, and pinky red pumps.


Ruby is well aware of how gorgeous she is, and has no qualms about using either her stunning appearance or her magical powers to manipulate and take advantage of the people she meets. Depicted as a natural troublemaker, she often teases people and is very possessive. As hinted in the game, she is in possession of a mysterious, deadly temper. She is also somewhat snooty and spoiled, as when Jack gives her a ring as a weapon, she comments that it is somewhat plain despite its stated rarity, much to Toan's surprise.


As a genie capable of manipulating the elements, Ruby helps the party proceed through the dungeons by conjuring up the correspondent element of each magically-bidden door's crystal. Her Fire abilities also play a crucial role in defeating La Saia. She can increase her defense with the Witch Parfait, which is found in miracle chests.

Ruby's weapons of choice are rings, which she uses to fire magical blasts of elemental energy. Unlike other party members, she cannot deactivate the element of her weapons—she must always have an element selected. She is also the only ranged attacker who can charge her attacks before using them, increasing her damage.

Although Ruby is hovering in midair when she joins the party, she is incapable of jumping or flying over gaps in the dungeons as Xiao and Osmond can.
