"Well then, what're we waiting for?"
Reuben Adrian (a.k.a. Rubicon Adriatico, Rube, Rubester, etc.) is a fictional character who has appeared in Storm's Brewing. He is also the protagonist of his own fanfic, titled Uncrossing the Rubicon.
Appearance: White with a hint of Pacific Islander, Hazel eyes, often seen hauling a backpack full of various supplies and trinkets. He tries to stay well-groomed, but he travels fairly often and can't always spare the time. He often wears neutral-colored clothes (because he's red-green colorblind), and seems to be particularly fond of a black-gray windbreaker.
Personality: He's generally good-tempered, but he's reserved and almost furtive. He tries to avoid battles rather than fight them, but he will not hesitate to use techniques some fighters would consider "cheap". When in the company of his close friends, he can become brash and playful, sometimes obnoxiously so. But not very often. In short.
|Vivosaur||Species||Misc. Info||Super Fossil|
|O-Raptor||This little guy is always on edge. He can use his feathers to stir up confusion, allowing Rubicon to escape in the chaotic flurry. Rubicon believes he accomplishes through a rare molting condition from the constant stress he puts himself through.||Silver Legs (eventually)|
|Squik||Clown of the group. It'll do anything to get a laugh, save throwing itself into a meat grinder.||Gold Fossil (first one found)|
|Jara (Jan)||Rubicon's best friend of the three. She's his island-hopping transportation, his confidant, his biggest asset, and his unfailing ally. In return he's her loving guardian, trainer, and sardine-provider. Nothing gets between the two of them.||Gold Fossil (received at the start of Silber and Gold)|
|Aeros||Used in Round One, now in VMM||None|
|Menchi||Used in Round One, now in VMM||None|
|B-Jara (Bojangles)||Carried when pretending to be a regular BBB goon. He has a wild streak in his marrow.||Silver Head|
*In the canon of Mesozoic Mayhem, he also owns a Penta, Aopteryx and Tro. Information regarding their personalities could be found here before allfancharacter.wikia.com went under. RIP, guess I'll just add what I remember of it to Rubicon (JSAU) when I get the chance.
*He owns a pair of Tro for a brief period of time. However, he never uses these in battle, and Alistair is the only one who really connects with them.
(I'm too lazy to write a full summary. Besides, it wouldn't be concrete yet.)
Interaction with Other CharactersEdit
Ray - The relationship between Rubicon and Ray is strained, to say the least. Ray doesn't approve of Rubicon's sense of humor, and Rubicon quietly disapproves of Ray's "leadership".
Alistair - Alistair and Rubicon get along just fine. They share a high level of respect for each others' abilities, and not much for Ray's. Rubicon is secretly really jealous of Alistair's fedora, though he knows that such wearing such an amazing hat would ruin his hopes for inconspicuousness, which Rubicon values highly.
Ub - Rubicon willingly helps Ub obtain powerful vivosaurs in the first couple rounds of the Cup. Unlike most Fighters, he is not at all put out by Ub's red eye (as he is barely able to distinguish it from his regular one). Their shared interests in concealment and neutral colors also helps kindle a possible friendship. Unfortunately, Ub eventually dismisses these sentiments as weaknesses and detriments to his true goal. At least, that's how Rubicon perceives it...
Celestial - Celestial and Rubicon are childhood friends. While neither one fully understands the other, they appreciate each other's company and enjoy hanging out. And no, they are not romantically involved.
Damon - Rubicon and Damon start off not really knowing what to make of one another. Damon is impressed by Rubicon's grace under fire, with his smooth handling of the Carno fiasco and his cup loss to Damon. Rubicon sees Damon as a friend, although his tough schedule affords him little hang out with him.
Mia - Mia is Reuben's older sister. She acts as a mentor/authority figure to him. He can't understand why she's such a spendthrift, but he genuinely loves her.
Items that have a specific customization or use to them. Standard items or those given out by Cup management are not included in this list. Brace yourself, this is going to be a long list.
|RPG Hero Backpack||
This backpack is capable of near unlimited storage thanks in great part to numerous hamerspace pockets. Bought for Rubicon by Mia.
|Chapter 4 (UtR)|
|Baseball||An old childhood toy Reuben occasionally fidgets with. Has no symbolic significance whatsoever.||
Before Chapter 1 (UtR)
|Fully Upgraded Sonar||Rubicon, upon getting his first sonar, couldn't help but upgrade it himself. It took him the better part of a month to get the specific chipsets he needed, but he accomplished the task.||About Chapter 7 (UtR)|
|Sardines||Rubicon keeps these on hand for Jan. She doesn't technically need to eat them, but Rubicon thinks it's only fair to pay her back for being his main mode of transportation.||Between Chapters 4-5 (SB)|
|Mysterious Ray Gun||While investigating Secret Island, Rubicon dicovers this oddity in an "unbreakable box" in the Crashed Starship. Its function is currently unknown, as it appears to require Dinaurian power cells to operate.||Between Chapters 4-5 (SB)|
|Pictureless License||Still valid as a Fighter's License but no longer his current, Rubicon keeps this card as a memory of first day as a Fossil Fighter.||Chapter 3 (UtR)|
|Paleopager||Received upon registration into the Cup. Modified to conform with pictureless license ID so as to be hard-to-pinpoint.||???|
