Rhys is the initial protagonist of Phantasy Star III.
Rhys is a pale-skinned man with blue hair. During the second generation, Rhys is older and he gains a mustache. He dresses in blue clothes and silver armor.
Being of Orakian descent, he has no magic powers, but can make use of a sword.
Prior to the events of the game, he was exploring the beach when he came across a young girl with amnesia. All she could remember was her first name, Maia. Later on, the events begin when Maia gets kidnapped by a dragon in the middle of their wedding.
