Raquel Applegate (Japanese: ラクウェル・アップルゲイト) is one of the main protagonists of Wild Arms 4, whom the party meets at Port Rosalia almost immediately after the end of the prologue. Raquel is a tragic heroine, afflicted with a serious and incurable disease since she was a child. She is one of the few survivors of the disaster that annihilated her hometown, Verklarung, which was accidentally caused by Hauser Blackwell. Since then, she's embarked on a mission to live life to the fullest and see as much beauty in the world as she can. It is for this reason that she joins up with Jude Maverick and his party. Having been confronted with her own mortality on a daily basis from such a young age has forced her to grow up quickly, and she fulfills the role of an older sister figure to her comrades.


Raquel is a devastatingly skilled swordsman (at one point being referred to as a Fast Draw artist). She also represents the calmer, more mature member of the group, using her insights to rein in the other, more emotional impulses of Jude and Arnaud and acting as sort of an older sister figure.

Over the course of the adventure, Raquel finds herself falling in love with the party's crest sorcerer, Arnaud G. Vasquez. The two develop a relationship which eventually leads to their marriage and the birth of their child. Unfortunately, Raquel herself never finds a cure for her disease, but her determination to make the most of her life greatly matured her eventual husband.

This lady fencer isn't very "ladylike", but her strength in battle more than makes up for her faults. Seems hard to approach at first, but in reality this female swordsman is caring and is the most mature of the young party members. Traveling the world that has been devastated by the war, her objective is to find and draw the few beautiful landscapes left in Filgaia.
