Prince Ruit Sapindale is the 57th ruler of the Human Realm, and the 7th of the Sapindale family to take the throne. He is the current reigning human ruler from 4523, and was preceded by his mother, Ruta Sapindale.

He is described as a very strict ruler who "makes lots of laws and rules" by Nino.

Appearance[]

Ruit has blue eyes, very long dark blue hair tied into a ponytail, and wears a blue eye patch over his missing left eye. His attire consists of a long-sleeved white button-up with blue cuffs and gold accents. He also wears a dark blue cape with a blue diamond clip. His pupils are diamond-shaped like his mother.

History[]

As an heir and upcoming ruler, he was often busy with lessons and training as is normal for those of royal lineage.

Ruit became the ruler of humanity before he was of age. His actions as a ruler include stopping the ongoing rain and subsequent flood that affected the human world after princess Ruta died, and creating a law dealing with humans who have been in the monster world.

Relationships[]

Lune[]

Lune is the "right hand" to Ruit, and seems to be the closest of the guards to him. The pair is often pictured together in gallery illustrations and short comics, with Lune generally looking after Ruit's wellbeing, sometimes even reprimanding him over any wrongdoings. Lune seems to have accompanied Ruit for a long time, at least as early as during the decade of peace where she's seen standing by his side in the laboratory. Later, during the war of the barrier breach, Lune fought by Ruit's side against Suvillan. Not much else is known about their relationship, although it seems generally positive, with Ruit even praising Lune as someone valuable to humankind.

Kaji[]

Ruit is admired by Kaji to a degree, being one of the few humans who don't antagonize the fallen angel, or mistreat him for his lack of divinity. Ruit himself seems to care for Kaji's wellbeing, as he asks Lune to check on Kaji during the pursuit of Meimona and Nino. It is implied that after Kaji fell to the human world and lost his halo, he was taken in by Ruit as a resident of the human world to live among the people of Icicle Bay. Ruit also granted Kaji control over the Sea Patrol, and a position to oversee the affairs of Icicle Bay and its surrounding islands. Their relationship seems positive overall.

Selene[]

Selene is the Royal Advisor to Ruit. Not much is known about their relationship, but she is often depicted teasing the prince or roping him into silly antics like wearing her merchandise. Ruit thinks highly of Selene's opinions or skills if he granted her a position as his Royal Advisor, and their relationship seems positive overall. Selene is seen standing by Ruit's side when he announces the law against humans who have been to the monster world.

Prince Suvillan IV[]

Although direct interaction hasn't been shown between the two, it's observable that they are opposite to each other in many aspects. In their younger years as respective heirs to Suvillan III and Ruta, Suvillan was very timid over his position, while Ruit was aloof, uncaring, and rude. Some of the gallery images and short comics show Ruit antagonizing Suvillan during these teen years. Later, Ruit inherited the rule of the human world from his mother properly while it was still intact, while Suvillan had no such treatment from his father, and instead had to rebuild a "dead world" as his own with the help of Corona. It may be the case Ruit never had to work as hard as Suvillan did to earn his position as a prince, but both are still largely adored by the residents of their worlds.

The opposition between their parents as former monsterkind and humankind rulers is also present between Suvillan and Ruit themselves, and prominently enough that it is depicted in the monster world's propaganda posters. The two have directly faced each other in the barrier breach war, where Suvillan was aiming to assassinate Ruit who was assisted by Lune, and failed his attempt. While Suvillan is very hostile towards Ruit, it is unknown what Ruit currently thinks of Suvillan.
