Ys Wiki

Raba (ラーバ?), full name Raba Solomon (ラーバ゠サルモン?) according to the PS2 Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim official guide, is a wise man that Adol first encounters in the Darm Tower.


Raba is a scholar who came to Esteria 6 months before the start of Ys I: Ancient Ys Vanished in order to study its ancient ruins. Unfortunately, while Raba was investigating Darm Tower, monsters appeared. Trapped in the tower, he managed to survive due to help from Dogi and the idol which allows him to vanish from sight.
