Rigrit Bers Caurau (リグリット・ベルスー・カウラウ) was a member of the Thirteen Heroes, who fought against the Evil Deities 200 years ago. She is also a former adamantite ranked adventurer and former member of Blue Roses.
Rigrit is described to have the physique of an old woman. She has grey hair tied into a ponytail. She wears a long black robe, held in place with a red jewel at the center and has a shoulder plate on her left arm side.
Rigrit has a playful and mischievous personality, despite her elderly appearance.
Over two hundred years ago, Rigrit joined the Thirteen Heroes in order to fight off the swarm of Evil Deities that threatened to destroy the New World. After the group disbanded, she has spent a lot of her time in seclusion to improve her magic and has even extended her natural lifespan beyond that of natural humans.
At one point in her career, she used to be a member of Blue Roses, serving as the supporting role of a magic caster. When Rigrit decided to retire, she found Evileye and defeated her with support from Blue Roses in order to make Evileye her replacement for the team. She later vanished, with her whereabouts being a mystery to a majority of other nations. At one point in time during her travel, she encounters Brain Unglaus and fought against him in battle.

Rigrit was honorably mentioned by Fluder Paradyne as a rival who he wanted to surpass, so he could become the greatest magic caster in history. Fluder was hoping that if he were to successfully control the Death Knight, he can triumph over her. Despite not being able to control the Death Knight, his disciples attempt to console him, believing that he has already surpassed Rigrit.Meanwhile, Rigrit visits Platinum Dragon Lord who resides in the Eight Greed Kings' floating castle. Upon meeting each other again for the first time in a while since their adventures together, the two started reminiscing of their time as fellow members of the Thirteen Heroes. It was during the time, when she and other heroes used to hunt down the Evil Deities together and eventually, learning that Platinum Dragon Lord had tricked them through the armor he controlled from a distance.
Not only that, but as well as assessing the new disturbance with the potential of throwing the world into chaos again. Although she advises Platinum Dragon Lord to seek aid from other Dragon Lords, he cast aside that idea since none of the other Dragon Lords had the same objective as he does.

Abilities and Powers
Though nothing much is known about Rigrit's capabilities, Fluder mentioned that she happens to be a necromancer, who has the power of controlling the undead. Like Fluder, she can also extend her life with magic. She is one of the few humans who can defeat Evileye, according to Platinum Dragon Lord.
Additionally, it was stated that the strongest of the heroes was capable of using 5th tier magic. Hence, it is safe to assume that she was already capable of casting 5th tier magic spells, since her days as a member of the Thirteen Heroes.
Only in the Web Novel, according to Rigrit, during her conversation with Platinum Dragon Lord about her victory over the Vampire Lord Evileye, she was said to possess plenty of knowledge of the undead and their weaknesses. Hence, she knew of a way on how to beat the undead and her Elementalist abilities.
- Unnamed Sword: She is equipped with a well-made sword.
- Rigrit's Ring: A ring that was given to her by Platinum Dragon Lord, but later she gave it to Gazef Stronoff.
Platinum Dragon Lord is a colleague and friend of Rigrit in the days of adventuring as the Thirteen Heroes and both fought against the Evil Deities. However, during their travels, he was actually controlling an empty armor from a distance using magic, so she did not know it was him. After the truth was revealed, like most of the other members of the Thirteen Heroes, she came to hold a grudge against him for not telling them the truth.
Evileye is a colleague and friend of Rigrit in the Thirteen Heroes, who fought alongside her against the Evil Deities. Rigrit called Evileye a "Crybaby" and she was not above beating her into submission in order to force the vampire to take her place in Blue Roses, even though Evileye had no such intention in the first place. Rigrit knows the real name of Evileye and refers to her as Inberun.
In the past, Rigrit viewed the leader positively as someone who was able to help combat the threats posed to the New World. She believed he was able to make the world a safer place to live in even after his death. She felt it was quite a shame to see him die so early during their journey to combat the Evil Deities. When she recalls how the leader's death came about, she had a pained expression on her face thinking about it. She is aware that her leader had some degree of knowledge in regard to the world of YGGDRASIL and its various items.
Rigrit sees Gazef as someone who is trustworthy enough to the point where she even entrusted him with a special ring made from Wild Magic.
At some point in time, Rigrit has once fought Brain in battle when she was still a member of Blue Roses. Thus, it was said that she and he had exchanged blows, and both sides had come away covered in wounds.
Rigrit encountered Fluder two centuries ago during the era of the Thirteen Heroes and Evil Deities. Since that time, she and Fluder seem to share a sense of rivalry, competing with him in the realm of magic. Rigrit was met with jealousy by her rival as the latter noted that he was not granted permission to enter Eryuentiu like she did where she received powerful magic items.
Rigrit like many of the other natives aware of their exiestence of the New World, is wary and on guard against Players due to their God like power and the already profound effect they have on the world and much like the Platinum Dragon Lord is also likely preparing against them if they turn out to be malignant.
Rigrit however despite her being on guard against them, Rigrit also refers to the Player's incursions into the New World as the "Great Tremors" and during her talk with Platinum Dragon Lord on the new arrivals, it was hinted that Rigrit did not hold absolute contempt for Players and has even hinted that she had hoped that like the Leader of the 13 Heroes, that they would instead help and benefit the world instead of being threats to it.
- In the Web Novel, Fluder states that Rigrit was able to summon and control 20 Ghasts simultaneously.
- In the Drama CD, Pinison Pol Perlia remembers an old woman of the Thirteen Heroes. This implies that Rigrit's age may actually be longer than 200.
- Fluder uses Rigrit as a benchmark to measure his strength and achievements so far to hers. Both these individuals are the only two humans known to be alive for more than a century already thanks to their magic.
- Platinum Dragon Lord believes Rigrit to be one of the few humans who is able to beat Evileye.
- Maruyama confirmed that in terms of levels, Rigrit is weaker than Evileye.
- In the version by Yen Press her name is Ligritte Belú Kaurau.
- (To Platinum Dragon Lord): "Friend? That empty suit of armor over there is my friend… It's all beaten up."
- (To Platinum Dragon Lord about Evileye): "Hah. That crybaby kept nagging and complaining, so I told her I will do whatever she wants if she can beat me. And so, I gave her a good thrashing!"
- (To Platinum Dragon Lord about Evileye): "Well, the other party mates will help too. And she knows about undead and the way to defeat them. Even if she loses in terms of pure power, the weakness of an undead will still be the same. No matter how strong the crybaby gets, there will always be someone stronger. For example, you could easily win against that kid. If you didn't restrain yourself, you would be the strongest existence, even in this world."
- (To Platinum Dragon Lord): "... So the tremors have come again after more than a hundred years. This time, it isn't something that will help the world like leader did."
- (To Platinum Dragon Lord about Brightness Dragon Lord): "I see. However, there is Brightness Dragon Lord, who mingles with humans while making babies. So we might be able to persuade him, right?"
- (To Platinum Dragon Lord): "Are you waiting for that while you dream? If leader left all his knowledge behind, there would be less trouble. It's a shame he died so early."
