There's no other swordsman as tough as me!
Elsword is a master swordsman who excels at close range combat. He's quick on his feet and can hack and slash with the best of them. Not only can he dish it out, but he can take a lot of punishment as well. His only real weakness is magic, but in his mind, there's nothing a sharp piece of steel can't beat.

The "Way of the Sword" ability (initially exclusive to Elsword prior to Elesis's release) enables him to utilize energy gained through attacks and skills into 2 types of auras: Aura of Destruction and Aura of Vitality.
- Main Article: Ruben Forest (Elsword)
Elsword is an ambitious but hot-headed young swordsman trained by his sister Elesis, the leader of the Red Mercenary Knights. Elesis left her little brother to lead a mission, never to return.
