Appearance and Personality[]

"I'm Rapp of Cafu!! Hmph! I guess someone needs to teach you a lesson "
Charaboard rap 02.jpg

Rapp is a skinny humanoid with tan skin. Rapp has short, spiked brown hair and wears a green headband that extends down the nape of his neck, two holes have been cut on it's side for his humanoid ears to fit through. Rapp wears a white vest underneath a white jacket which is cut at the sleeves showing his full arm length. His bottom half is covered with a pair of green tights and a pair of green and yellow boots. Rapp wears a pair of green wrist bands and sports some Cafunian jewelery around his neck. Rapp has several distinguishable features including a cross scar on his forehead and several tribal tattoos on his biceps and calves.

Rapp is often passed off as shrewd and arrogant, but his attitude only reflects his heartache due to the petrification of his parents from Gaia. He now lives under the care of the village elder, who Rapp resents because of the laws he enforces to keep people out of the village. To help vent his frustration, he often spends time with his gang of other Cafu youths including his good friend Nicky.


Rapp suffered heartache at a young age as his parents were turned to stone by Gaia. He often acts rashly and his antics lead him to capture Justin and Feena but they quickly become friends due to their help in defeating the trent. After having enough of the unfair laws set by his village, Rapp decides to join Justin in his adventure.

Rapp is predominantly a speed attacker. He is agile and attacks fast. Rapp can equip Knives, Swords, and projectiles, although with the latter, Rapp can only equip throwing weapons such as boomerangs and ninja stars. His Strength and HP may not ever be as high as the other melee fighters such as Justin, Gadwin, and Milda, but his speed and decent Magic abilities make up for it. When attacking, Rapp is pretty fast and accurate. He can unleash quick Criticals, but due to his high SP, judicious use of his Skills is recommended during during boss battles. His Sword and Knife levels are initially low, so it is advised to train those weapons up to a good standard before he uses his preferred weapon of throwing items. Most of his spells are offensive in nature, but he has several status ailment spells such as Stram, Shhh! and Poizn. In addition to this, Rapp is the only character who can learn Def-Loss on Disc 2.
