"There are few who perplex me more than a man named Raphael Boren-- if that is truely his name. I am certain that he means well, but due to his occupation, lying has become such a frequent necessity that it has become a habit for him. What astounds me is that even in his situation, he seems to remain in a perpetual state of hopefullness. His life is so dark, so twisted, and yet he manages to smile throughout it all. If there was ever a question as to whichever one man was closest to perfection, my mind would likely drift towards Raphael."

Raphael Boren is, for someone in his line of work, an interestingly optimistic fellow from Gilneas. It has become an almost universally-known fact that nearly anything he says is a lie, a bad habit he has developed due to his position as a member of SI:7.
