Appearance and Personality
Rua appears to Lopen as a ribbon or light, a young boy of nine or ten years and as a young man. Lopen calls him Naco. He likes to play hide-and-seek with Lopen, whose carefree attitude meshes well with the spren. He is mischievous like a windspren. He appears to be incapable of speech.
Rua seems to have bonded Lopen during the battle of Thaylen. Lopen said the first oath but did not become a complete Radiant. After the battle, while talking to a wounded soldier, he said his second oath and then becomes a full Radiant. Rua, who is named Naco by Lopen, plays with him at the war camps where the wounded are being cared for. He is still at the beginning of his consciousness. When Lopen teaches Rua how to make a rude gesture, the spren proceeds to use it indiscriminately, once even growing an extra pair of arms to make a quadruple rude gesture towards the Stormfather himself.
Rua and Lopen bonded which means they now have a close and intimate relationship. They have a good time together as they play hide and seek or make gestures to other people. Rua follows and imitates Lopen.
”Life before death, strength before weakness, journey before pancakes.— Lopen’s first oath, where he bonds Rua. 
Lopen was actively pursuing becoming a full Knight Radiant. He's the only one of the team who's actively been doing that.
It has yet to be reviewed.
