Rowen J. Ilbert is a playable character in Tales of Xillia and Tales of Xillia 2. During the events of Tales of Xillia he serves as a butler to the Sharil family in their manor in Sharilton, employed under Cline Sharil. He was formerly a respected general and strategist in the Rashugal army, known then as "The Conductor."

[edit] History

Before the events of Tales of Xillia, Rowen was a highly skilled strategist for the Rashugal Army. During his formative years and while training to be a solider he became close friends with the man who would later become the king of Rashugal, Nachtigal. As the two grew up and Nachtigal took the throne, Rowen saw his friend become more and more power hungry, changing from the person he knew from his youth. He retired from the military and became a butler to the Sharil family in Sharilton, in the hope of helping the noble houses end Nachtigal's reign of terror. He meets up with Jude, Milla and the others in the market square of Sharilton and after an attack on their town, and the kidnap of Cline Sharil, joins them on their journey.

[edit] Appearance and Personality

Rowen has long, white hair that he always keeps tied back in a pony tail with a single, black tie at the top of the pont tail keeping it in place. He wear a tail coat jacket and other formal clothing in Tales of Xillia as befitting of his profession at the time. In Tales of Xillia, Rowen can be seen again wearing a tail coat jacket but as opposed to the green jacket with yellow patterns, he now wears a purple suit with a light blue neckerchief. Due to his life experiences in the Rashugal army, he can remain calm even in stressful situations and will often make light of the situation of make jokes to stop others in the party from fretting. Despite his calm and gentlemanly demeanor, he can be serious at times, when the time requires him to be. At the age of 62 in Tales of Xillia it makes him the oldest playable character in the Tales of series. He and Alvin often make fun of the younger members of the group, teasing that they do not know of "adult things". He also makes fun of his own age, at times.
