Fun fact: Ruben is Twitch’s real name but he got the nickname because he’s jumpy and flinches a lot.

Twitch is scout like Jace and Cole but is very different from them. He likes to keep his head down and stay out of trouble. Like Mira, Twitch has some secrets he keeps from the inhabitants of Skyport. For one thing, he won’t reveal what his special item for scouting is to anyone.

Twitch is From Elloweer. His real name is Ruben. He is a former slave of the Sky Raiders and a friend of Cole Randolph, Miracle, and Jace.

He was a slave of the Sky Raiders, having been captured while he was adventuring from Elloweer, trying to find a champion to take down Renford. He was nicknamed Twitch because he is jumpy and flinches a lot. Twitch's special item as a Sky Raider is a ring which allows him to turn into a grinaldi.

Appearance Edit

Short and skinny with blue eyes.. Though he’s Cole age, he looks much younger.

During his escape from the Sky Raiders, it was revealed that the object is a ring that allows him to retake his natural form, which is grinaldi. They have wings that are used for hopping, not flying long distances. He has a quartet of translucent wings, and his legs are like those of a grasshopper.

Backstory Edit

Before Twitch met Cole, Jace, and Mira, Twitch lived in the small grinaldi town, Kasori. Only grinaldi lived in the town and Brinkus was the champion and alderman. Nearby, a swamp people gathered together as a settlement, made Renford their leader and challenged Brinkus for Kasori. Renford won and was also able to beat Borus and take over two other grinaldi towns. When Renford's reign was worse for the people, Twitch bravely decided to go out and find a champion to challenge Renford.

Twitch traveled to Wenachi and the town agreed to endorse his person as a champion to challenge Renford.

Twitch could not find anyone in Elloweer to do the job so he sent out to Sambria to find one. However, with his grinaldi form gone and without a bondmark, Twitch was captured and sold into slavery. He was sold to the Sky Raiders.

Sky Raiders Edit

Twitch met Cole when he was bunking with Jace, Slider, and previously, Fiddler. Twitch's special item, which turned out to be a ring that could turn him to the grinaldi form grabbed a lot of people's attention when he would not tell anyone.

When Cole and Mira started to escape from the Legion,Captain Pickett, and Commander Rainier, Twitch decided to join them, remembering his true mission of getting back to Elloweer. Twitch followed Cole, Mira, and Jace to Cloudvale, the Boomerang Forest, Brady's Wilderness and helped fight Carnag. He is one of the few people who know Mira's true identity and became a real friend to Cole, Mira, and Jace.

The Rogue Knight Edit

Twitch travels with Cole, Jace, Mira, and Joe to Carthage which is when he tells Cole of his backstory. Cole is surprised and wishes to help Twitch but Twitch says he wants to focus on Mira for the time being. When Cole was kidnapped by Ansel and Ham, Twitch was able to stealthily track them down and break Cole out.

Cole tells the rest of the group about Twitch's problem with Renford but Twitch tells them to focus on Mira and finding Cole's friends Dalton and Jenna. Twitch travels with Joe to track Mira when the Rogue Knight takes her and follows them to Edgemont. Twitch then helps them fight Morgassa but afterward is finally able to find his champion Minimus. Twitch then travels to Wenachi to show them of his champion.
