Like Ra-Seru, Rogues have the appearance of a jeweled or crystallized figure. However, the Rogues are shown to be made up of many pieces, usually a large yellow crystallized center with rotating blue crystallized pieces surrounding it, whereas Ra-Seru are made up of only one part. The Rogues are able to change their elements and shapeshift so as to resemble others.
Rogue was originally one of the many Ra-Seru created by Tieg that resided in the Seru-kai. As a Ra-Seru, Rogue was entrusted with maintaining order over the Seru within the Seru-kai. However, it gathered a following amongst a number of other Ra-Seru and initiated a rebellion against Tieg. Tieg crushed the rebellion with his power and as punishment for their actions banished the head Rogue and its followers, also known Rogues thereafter, from Noaru Valley. From then on the Rogues lived within what became known as Rogue's Tower.
The chaos of Rogue's rebellion caused many Seru to escape from the Seru-kai and enter Legaia. Tieg forsaw disaster in the future and created ten Genesis Trees in the human world, sealing a Ra-Seru in each one and ordering them to save humans in time of impending disaster. Initially, the Seru and the humans lived in peace, with humans having dominion over the Seru.
With the power of the Seru, humans created civilization. However, as Tieg predicted, that power caused the human spirit to become warped and too dependent on Seru. The Rogues used this dependence to spread evil throughout all of Legaia.
Legend of LegaiaEdit
- "The Rogues are evil Ra-Seru who plotted a rebellion against Tieg a thousand years ago."
- —Terra to Vahn, Noa, and Gala.
Cort and Jette planned a day for the demonstration of the new weapon and the other three Four Wise Men of Conkram along with the King and Queen oversaw the demonstration in town from the palace overlooking it. A warrior of Conkram volunteered to take part in the demonstration and stepped into the cylinder in the middle of town that connected with a pipe underground leading to the palace's underground laboratory. From the laboratory, Prince Cort and Jette activated the device known as the Mist Generator which connected to a vortex that led to Rogue's Tower.As Jette turned on the device Mist started spilling out of the vortex and traveled the tube from the laboratory into the cylinder in town. Though the situation seemed to be fine, moments later a very high dose of Mist started spilling out of the vortex. Cort and Jette attempted to turn off the Mist Generator, but the emergency shutoff switch failed to work and the Mist Generator exploded. With nothing to contain the Mist it started to flow all over Conkram, causing those wearing Seru to become possessed and start attacking people and the remaining Seru in town to go on a frenzy and start killing people.</p>
Fortunately, three teens wearing Ra-Seru happened to be in town and traveled the vortex leading to Rogue's Tower. These teenagers were none other than Vahn, Noa and Gala, who had made their way to Conkram by traveling from the future through the Room of Mirrors with the Seru Flame, which opened the vortex between space and time. As they traveled through Rogue's Tower they battled and defeated many crazed Seru, as well as four of Rogue's followers that took the shape of previous enemies Caruban (x2) and Berserker (x2).</p>Rogue confronted the Ra-Seru heroes, hitting Noa into the ground as it rose into the air. Though Rogue attacked them fiercely it was defeated by the combined powers of Meta , Terra and Ozma and shattered into pieces. With the Rogue dead, its body which was the Tower itself, started to crumble into pieces. With Rogue dead the source of the Mist leading into Conkram was cut off. Although the source of the Mist was destroyed with the head Rogue's death, two Rogues made it out of Rogue's Tower before it was destroyed. One was the clam-shaped Seru that eventually enveloped Conkram and the other was suspected to have awoken Cort and the Four Wise Men's evil ambitions. With this knowledge and ambition gained from the Rogue, Cort used Ra-Seru and Ra-Seru eggs to create Mist Generators throughout Legaia and bring humanity to the brink of annihilation. Though Rogue is not the most powerful nor the final enemy for the Ra-Seru heroes, it is the underlying cause of all mankinds sorrows.
Power and AbilitiesEdit
Rogues were once Ra-Seru and as such share much of the same abilities, although there are noticeable differences. Unlike the Ra-Seru which only have control over the element they are assigned, Rogues (at least the head Rogue) possess control over multiple elements. They also have the ability to create dimensional gateways between the Seru-kai and Legaia, an ability that Ra-Seru apparently lack. Rogues are incredibly powerful and far beyond the capabilities of standard Seru.
- Rogue Flame - Rogue turns into a stone golem and surrounds the area in fire.
- Rogue Wind - Rogue turns into a transparent "woman" and summons a tornado.
- Rogue Thunder - Rogue turns into a thunder entity and summons lightning to surround the area.
Speed and movement techniquesEdit
- Levitation - Rogues use their energy to levitate in order to move.
- Teleportation - Rogues can travel to other areas through the creation of portals.
- Element Change - Rogues can change their element to whatever their choosing. Rogue uses it to copy the elements of Meta, Terra and Ozma.
- Telepathy - Enables Rogues to read the minds of others and communicate with them, even humans.
- Mist Creation - Rogue breathes Mist that turns Seru berserk. The Mist covering Conkram initially came from the Rogue. However, the Mist of later years is a copy that is created by Ra-Seru forced into Mist Generators.

Forms and TransformationsEdit
Rogues can transform into entirely new entities or even copy the appearance and abilities of entities that already exist.
Standard FormEditIn its standard form, a Rogue looks like a four crystals bundled together. In each Rogue, the center crystal is the largest and is a bright yellow hue. Surrounding it are three blue crystals that are smaller in size. These crystals rotate around the body and can expand and bunch together at will. Rogues use these occasionally for physical attacks.
Pieces can break off of a Rogue and act independently. These are aptly named Rogue fragments. When the portal between Rogue's Tower and Conkram was open during the initial Mist outbreak, Rogue fragments traveled their way into Conkram. One was found by Jette and given to Prince Cort and another was possibly the Seru put on by Cort earlier during his Mist research. The Rogue fragments have the same capabilities of whole Rogues and can communicate with others.
Two Rogues in Rogue's Tower will morph into Caruban, but at a higher level of power - the first one at Lv. 2 and the second one at Lv. 3. These Rogues carry the same abilities of the standard Caruban but are tinted different colors.
Two Rogues in Rogue's Tower will morph into Berserker, but at a higher level of power - the first one at Lv. 2 and the second one at Lv. 3. These Rogues carry the same abilities of the standard Berserker but are tinted different colors.
Flame FormEditWhen Rogue changes its element to Fire it will morph into a being made of stone in order to execute its Rogue Flame attack.
Wind FormEditWhen Rogue changes its element to Wind it will morph into a being made of wind in order to execute its Rogue Wind attack.
Thunder FormEditWhen Rogue changes its element to Thunder it will morph into a being made of electricity in order to execute its Rogue Thunder attack.
- The Mist is actually the breath of the head Rogue
- Rogue has many identifiable traits with the Lucifer of Christian religion beliefs.
- Rogue's Tower is the body of the head Rogue. Amazingly Rogue can travel within its own body (a good comparison would be how Super Buu in DBZ confronts Goku and Vegeta within its own body when they try and save the people Buu has absorbed previously).
