How To Dress Like Raphtalia From The Rising Of The Shield Hero
Dress like Raphtalia from The Rising Of The Shield Hero;
She has undergone some significant changes throughout history. When Raphtalia is first introduced, she is a child with long, uncombed hair and a dirty cloth dress. After being bought by Naofumi, he gives her a haircut to an acceptable length, bathes her, and buys her a much more appropriate clothing item for adventures. Raphtalia is a raccoon/tanuki hybrid with fluffy corner ears and a medium-sized, bushy tail. After traveling with Naofumi for several weeks, Raphtalia's body inexplicably changes and she looks like a beautiful young adult.
In her adult form, Raphtalia begins to wear clothing much more befitting of a warrior, consisting of a leather breastplate, a skirt, lace-up boots, and a pair of gloves. Raphtalia also transitions from a small knife to a large sword during this time.
Initially very shy, sickly, and fearful of her status as a slave, Raphtalia suffers trauma with memories of the destruction of her village. After encountering the two-headed dog monster, she overcomes the trauma of her parents' deaths at the hands of Cerberus and acknowledges Naofumi as a heroine in her own mind.
Naofumi realizes the strength of her heart. Despite having been through a lot for her age, from the death of her parents to being sold out to her fellow survivors to her best friend being tortured to death by her side, she manages to keep her morale and sanity up. She hopes to rebuild her village and fight for the country that has wronged her kind. This prompts Naofumi to take his hero role seriously and help her rebuild the village.

She wishes for Naofumi to behave like a hero and is disappointed in many of his actions. The current Raphtalia focuses on efficiency, both in combat and in training and spending. Seeing this trait, Naofumi feels that he raised her wrong as she shows no girlish desire for her looks or cares about efficiency. She is very devoted to Naofumi and harbors feelings for him that he does not realize, preferring to see her as his "daughter" whom he is raising in place of her deceased parents. As Raphtalia matures, not only does she become much more skilled and deadly in battle, but she also becomes a much braver, more headstrong, strong-willed, and cruel protector of her beloved Naofumi.
Until she was 10, Raphtalia lived in a small coastal village outside of Melromarc, where everyone lived in harmony until the first wave of disaster swept over her. During the attack, Raphtalia and her parents fled their home, but considering they could only dive into the sea to escape the monsters, Raphtalia's parents made the ultimate sacrifice. Her parents pushed her off a nearby cliff as the wave approached them, and she watched as her parents were devoured by the Cerberus. Raphtalia survived the fall and went back to find her parents but was unsuccessful. Shortly thereafter, a group of Melromarc Knights entered their village and killed any adult survivors. They captured all the boys and sold them to the slave traders for money.
She and many of her friends were eventually bought by Idol Rabier, who amused himself by torturing the innocent demi-humans. Raphtalia suffered and saw her best friend die, leading to a nervous breakdown and trauma. After that, she was sold several times before ending up with the slave trader in Melromarc. Alone and ailing, she was picked up by a slave trader and put up for sale in the capital, Melromarc. Raphtalia was with the slavers for weeks until she was bought by Naofumi Iwatani, which would change her life forever.
