Ruby is the main protagonist of the Ruby & Sapphire arc and recurring character of the Battle Frontier arc of the Pokémon Adventures manga. He first appears in Volume 15.
Originally from the Johto region, he moved with his mother to Hoenn to live closer to his father Norman, the Gym Leader of Petalburg City. Despite being a Gym Leader's son, Ruby hates battling and prefers Pokémon Contests.
Ruby began the series as a vain and condescending young man who did have a good heart deep down inside. The day he arrived in Hoenn was his eleventh birthday. On that very day, he ran away from his new home since he thought Norman would not endorse his choice to be a Pokémon coordinator. This was true at first, but Norman had decided to let Ruby become a Coordinator when the boy turned eleven. Sadly, Ruby did not stay to find this out.
After running away, he met Sapphire, the daughter of Professor Birch. They made a bet with each other - they would both travel around Hoenn, each trying to achieve their respective goals in eighty days — he would try to win every Contest and she would try to win all eight Badges.
His first three Pokémon are a Poochyena, Skitty, and Ralts, but he lends Ralts to Wally and due to an earthquake which sends Ruby into a raging river, he did not get her back until much later on.
