Ascetic Reithol is a character in The Legend of Heroes IV: A Tear of Vermillion.
Character and Appearance
Reithol is a young man who has a good physique. He has purple hair styled with bangs, and the color of his eyes are purple. He wears a blue and brown robe.
As the Guardian of Idun, he often goes to the shrine. He protects the shrine from monsters, which he also does for training. He can communicate with Idun through the use of ascetics. He is able to slay monsters through the combination of his bare hands and spells.
Avin, Rutice, and Lucias first meet Ascetic Reithol at the Idun Shrine. They hear him arguing with a silver haired man who demands that Reithol open the shrine. Reithol refuses the request because he detects an evil spirit within the person. The silver haired man then consumes Reithol's power and forces him to open the shrine against his will, leaving him unconscious next to the shrine. Avin carries him to the elder of Garden Hill.
Later on, the town is plagued by floating scales which produce hazardous air. He is unable to help Avin open the Idun Shrine as a result of inhaling the scales. They must wait for the scales to neutralize naturally. Avin decides to ask the Meefas to purify the air. As a result, Ascetic Reithol is able to use his power again and helps Avin by opening the entrance to the shrine.
