Radolf is a Cardinal in the Church of El Elemia. Radolf believes that the Church should be for the people, which opposes the views of Bishop Falss, and has been the cause of numerous disputes between them. Unlike most of the others members in the Church, he supports the Reyvateils and does his best to keep them from being mistreated. He is a very serious man, but he also is very stubborn and will not take back the words that he says easily. He fights using a Grathnode-enhanced spear.

Radolf's Story

Origins and Life Before At1

He hails from Karulu Village, and has always admired the Goddesses of the Trio of Elemia, and the ideals for which the Church supposedly stood. When Radolf joined the Church, he was acknowledged for his skills with his spear, and because of them he became a Cardinal in just 5 years. Although he joined before Bishop Falss, Radolf rising in ranks ended at Cardinal, while Falss was promoted to Bishop because of his knowledge about the Trio of Elemia, and how to use powers that were thought exclusive of the Apostles of Elemia, such as Harmonics. After Aurica joined the Church, Radolf always looked out for her.

Radolf also used to have a partner Reyvateil called Fayma, but he was separated from her once he reached the Cardinal rank.

Story in Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia

He is first seen at the site where Lyner's airship crashed, telling his men to respect the Reyvateil, given that they had worked very hard during that day. In Nemo, after watching how Jack, Lyner, and Aurica defeated the ABRα robot, which was being controlled by viruses, he was very impressed with their skills. He speaks to them for a while, inviting Lyner to meet Bishop Falss, but upon seeing that Falss wouldn't be able to see them for the remainder of that day, he asked Aurica to lead them to the inn.

Aurica's Path

After returning to Nemo from Platina, Radolf sees the turmoil that the storm caused by the fall of the Hexagonal Plate is causing. He berates Falss because he isn't paying any attention to the needs of the people, and them storms off, followed by Aurica and Lyner. Then, they decide to climb up to Silvaplate in search of a gate inside of the Tower that would make possible to walk from Nemo to Firefly Alley.

After the Journey Ends

Once the communications between Platina and the Wings of Horus are reestablished, he becomes an ambassador to help with unification between the Upper, Middle and Lower Worlds. Radolf also uses his newly acquired position of Bishop to restructure the Church, and focus its efforts into helping the people that need their services.
