|~ Ruby to Yaldabaoth|
Ruby Erenod is the deuteragonist of the Clockverse Series. She is the daughter of Cain and Avan and the strongest Cambion of her generation. She is the vice-captain of Eden Squad and the longtime rival and lover of Adrian Mariner. She is the younger sister of Enoch, Astar, Selene, and the older sister of Ciara. She shadowed Adrian during his time assisting his brother in law's pantheon. She is Adrian's best friend.
Ruby Erenod was born on August 22, 1993, to Cain and Avan, an extremely powerful demon and the White Witch. She lived with her family in Shrubley, Massachusetts where she grew up alongside Adrian until their 5th birthday. When she was five, her parents moved them to Lamplight, Missouri after Seraphim attacked the town and sealed the Archangel, Lucifer into the center of Hell. When she was 9, Adrian was sent to live with her and her family after his sister, Lilith, was sealed into Hell as well.
During the time that Adrian lived with her, she tried to get him to open up to her. After many attempts, she managed to get him to come with her to the woods outside of Lamplight Elementary. There they were attacked by wolves and Ruby was injured from saving Adrian. After this incident, Adrian grew protective of her and finally opened up. A few days later, the two become blood siblings always vowing to protect each other from harm.
In 2002, Ruby and Adrian began hunting with permission from their parents. They met a girl named Claire Silvers who was being chased by a werewolf. After killing the wolf, they took Claire with them after she begged them not to leave her alone. Adrian and Ruby accepted and took her with them. After a few months of hunting as a trio, the three decided to round up their cousins/friends and formed a hunting team. Together, they formed a hunting group called Eden Squad. The nine friends began hunting together rapidly building up a reputation as the youngest hunting group with the most successful cases. Aside from being the nine smartest students in school and the most reputable hunters of their generation, they were all social outcasts having skipped a few grades.
A year after Eden Squad’s formation, she and the rest of the team head to Crescent, West Virginia on account of Adrian discovering demonic omens. Thinking that it was a stray devil, she and the others did not find this job particularly difficult. After a few days of inactivity, Ruby and the others encounter a yellow-eyed demon in the Crescent Orphanage. The Demon captures Claire forcing Ruby and the others to pursue him in order to rescue her. They find the Demon force-feeding Claire blood through a goblet. The team attacks him freeing Claire. In retaliation, The Demon kills Claire in front of them and destroys all of Crescent leaving the team heartbroken.
Ruby is a fair-skinned young woman. Ruby is said to resemble Eve apart from her hairstyle. She possesses blood-red eyes and raven black hair. Her hair reaches past down to the back of her knees. She is said to possess a regal look and a beauty that others mention is aloof. Ruby is mostly seen with a stoic demeanor but her friends state that she possesses a smile that lights up the room and adds to her extreme beauty. Ruby is mostly seen wearing a black sleeveless mini dress with a white collar and a red tie. From time to time, she wears a dark trench coat. She gained a scar on her left cheek running down to the base of her neck due to the battle against Lucifer after the Apocalypse. While most people are aware that she is beautiful, she rebuffs them, stating that she's average for a girl.
In her demonic appearance, her sclera becomes black and red tribal markings and Enochian markings appear on her body. Her hair becomes a deeper shade of black. Her wings are crimson with a black miasma.
Her appearance drastically changes when she wields Divine Key: Hod. Under the influence of her Inner Cortex merged with Hod's, Ruby grows two crimson horns on her head. Her eyes change from red to violet with a red ring around her pupils. She dons a black revealing dress that reaches down to her ankles. A large crimson halo revolves behind her, which radiates divine splendor. In this form, she is stated to radiate an aura of glory that forces all to kneel before her. The Halo also emits an immense heat on par with that of the primordial universe prior to the appearance of life or planets.
Ruby is a semi-serious person with a neutral view of the world. She is described by her sister and Adrian to be serious one minute and smiling the next. Her personality is mostly that of her father, both being the serious sibling in their family. When meeting Eve, she called her Cain Number Two. Ruby is not completely serious. She has a fun-loving nature as shown when she and Adrian went to an amusement park to waste time during their hunt for Beelzebub. Ruby is also a very protective and caring person. This is shown in her attitude towards her sister, her apprentice, and Eden Squad. She was willing to take an arrow from Atalanta to protect S and later took a hit in Ciara’s place. Ruby is usually the voice of reason between her and Adrian leading him to sometimes view her as a prude or geek. Adrian also teasingly calls her “bitch” in which she replies “jerk”. While kind, Ruby has a snarky attitude often replying in a sarcastic manner at obvious questions.
Ruby possesses a phobia of clowns. This has stemmed from her being separated from Adrian and her parents during a carnival.
Out of the two, Ruby views herself as the smart one within their group. Originally a college student in addition to being a Hunter, Ruby, like Adrian, has skipped grade levels to the point that she was a high school senior at the age of 15 and a candidate for law school at 17. Her professors have noted her to a have a very immense degree of intelligence, excelling in Mathematics (Calculus), Physics, Biology, and History. She maintained a perfect GPA throughout all of college and graduated as the Summa Comm Laude of her class. Jeanne commenting on Ruby’s LSAT score as “scary good”. Her intelligence has often lead her to be the one who performs research on the area they work cases in.
Ruby’s care for her family and friends has brought out sides of her that have been described as terrifying and obsessive. Ruby had no qualms as about torturing a crossroads demon in order to gain information as to who holds deals and how to break them. Ruby also began working with Paimon, drinking copious amounts of demon blood to enhance her powers, and using Claire's grief as a way to get her to join her on her quest to get revenge on Lilith for killing Adrian. Ciara became extremely worried when Ruby began to work herself to death trying to find a way into Purgatory which lead her to spiral out of control and later, when Adrian was overtaken by the Mark of Cain, she did the same thing. Her attitude of a vengeful angel (or demon) is also seen with the others as Ruby nearly killed a boy who had been harassing her sister for a few months.
Like Adrian, Ruby has exhibited signs of having PTSD. This is from their failure to save Crescent from Azazel. Ruby has been prone to have nightmares and even episodes of depression. This gradually lessens as the series progresses. Ruby is determined not to fail and blames herself for things that happen to the group such as the Apocalypse. For example, she took Adrian’s spot for the Trials as she was determined not to let the group or Adrian down again. This further escalates to when she is nearly dead from the Trials and plans to go with Death to the afterlife.
Despite having a confident personality, Ruby is surprisingly humble. She doesn’t like to take credit for something prefer to say it was a group effort. There is one exception to this. Her rivalry with Adrian surpasses this as neither side will not hesitate to admit a win against the other. Ruby’s modest attitude disappears whenever she wins in a spar against Adrian. She will readily gloat her win to him.
During battle, Ruby has exhibited an enjoyment for it like her parents. Ruby draws thrill from a fight. She mainly likes to eliminate her opponents quickly and mercilessly as shown when she cut through a gang in less than a second.
Perhaps Ruby’s closest relationship in the entire series. Their relationship is that of best friends and rivals. Adrian lived and grew up with Ruby from the day Adrian’s mother and sister were sealed into Hell. Their relationship was originally antagonistic with Ruby trying to get Adrian to open up. However, this changed the day she got hurt trying to protect Adrian from a wolf after getting lost in the woods. Ever since that day, she and Adrian were extremely close. Ciara comments that they were joined at the hip stating that where one goes, the other is not far behind.
Their rivalry is one of the main and easily identifiable parts of their relationship. It is what pushed them to become strong. Their rivalry was born out of their desire to keep each other safe as part of a pact they forged when they were younger. Due to this, the two were able to push each other to higher heights. Unlike conventional rivals, Ruby will purposely fail and wait for Adrian to catch up or actively help him. When asked for the reason, she merely responds by stating that she doesn't want him to crumble easily in their next competition.
The two form a close sibling bond that is of equal importance to Adrian as his relationship with his older and younger sister. She holds him high regard and worries for his safety. Despite not looking like it due to their constant bickering and fighting, Ruby want nothing for Adrian but his wellbeing. She expresses this in the form of blunt, sometimes scathing statements. She encourages him to express his feelings and to take better care of himself, much to Adrian's annoyance and appreciation.
To those who analyze the relationship between the two, it is clear to see that they are each other's weaknesses. Ruby is Adrian's emotional pillar and has been since Lilith's sealing and vice-versa. She is willing to place herself in harm's way to save Adrian as with the wolf incident where Ruby managed to take an attack from a wolf in order to save him. Her need to keep him alive and safe can also be dangerous and often leads to destructive behavior. Any form of injury be it emotional or physical will earn whoever dealt such damage her unbridled wrath and her eternal ire. In addition, it has the potential to inflict great physical and psychological harm her. Ruby is willing to walk through the flames of Hell to save Adrian in a literal sense.
Over the course of several years and a massive amount of factors, Ruby began to develop romantic feelings for Adrian. However, she kept it down out of respect for Claire and Adrian's relationship with her. She developed a festering hatred for Adrian during this phase, often blaming him for not noticing her. She also blamed herself for not being good enough and not acting fast enough in order to win him over. However, she kept all of this contained within her and continued to act the part of the best friend. Like a maiden in love, Ruby hopes for the day when Adrian will notice her and return the feelings that she's harbored for him her entire life.

Intelligence: Extremely High. Ruby is considered a prodigy hunter. She has accumulated years worth of hunting and practical knowledge. Jeanne comments that her LSAT score was "scary good" to the point where law schools would have begging her to apply to them. Excels in the fields of calculus, physics, and biology however she chose law as her degree. Ruby is a Nation-State Level Hacker, making her the highest level non-computer hacker. She can crack extremely encrypted databases that would normally take an entire organization to crack in a matter of a few minutes to an hour depending on their security level. Ruby is a hunter at heart and has immense knowledge of the supernatural and is referred to as the brains of the group, having memorized the weaknesses and patterns of several monsters as well as the weaknesses of some Gods. Even with just a sliver of information, Ruby can construct a well-built plan that is almost guaranteed to never fail if new information does not present itself. On the off chance that it does, Ruby will simply add to her plan. With enough planning and prep, Ruby can be extremely dangerous. Ruby also knows several schools of Magic such as Norse, Onmyoudou, Enochian, Gaelic, and European. Zadkiel, for all his genius, considered her a threat to Heaven's plans solely for her ability to plan.
Weaknesses: Despite Ruby's many strengths, she exhibits several weaknesses as well that she desperately hides even in situations outside of battle. She is very insecure and can be prone to self-destructive behavior. In states of anger, she tends to have a single-track mind and eliminates the focus of her rage with nearly no regard for the people around her. | Exhibits the same weaknesses as Demons by it is curbed by her human blood.
