In 1985, Ruby was given the task of introducing Roger Black to mutantry. As a supporter of the police, Ruby fought in several battles of the First NoHead War, including the Battle of Superhero School in 2007. By 2033, she was still living, and presumably still teaching and tending to her gamekeeping duties at Superhero School.
- "My mom was broken-hearted when he vanished."
Ruby was born on 16 December, 1938 to Mr Wright, a mutant, and Yidalan, a goblin, and grew up in Hungary, near Buda Castle, where she acquired her distinctive accent. When Ruby was about three, her father vanished from the household, never to be seen again and leaving her mother to raise her alone. Ruby said she had very few memories of her father from her childhood, but remembered her mother fondly. Later, when talking to Roger and Sean about the death of her father, Ruby admitted that he was not a great father at all.
Ruby’s father was thrilled when his daughter was accepted at Superhero School, where Ruby began her education in 1945. During her third year, Ruby acquired a young dragon. For six years, Ruby went undefeated as a wrestler. Following her education, the then-gym teacher Superquack convinced then-Headmaster, Supermaul, to give Ruby the job of Gamekeeper and allow her to remain a resident of the school.
First NoHead War Edit
Sometime after her graduation, Ruby began supporting the police. Like her, they were currently bent on opposing the NoHeads and their Master, Mr. Demonic NoHead. The Order was reorganized into the Police Grand Army after Demonic returned to America from abroad and started his campaign to take over the government and persecute Fobbles and Fobble-borns. Mr. Demonic NoHead’s first reign of terror lasted years and turned friends against each other. The Grand Army worked with the government to oppose the Dark Lord and his followers. Mr. Demonic NoHead also had a number of dark creatures under his command as well, such as giants.
Meeting Roger Black Edit
- "This boy, he’ll be going to the finest school of mutantry in the world and he’ll be under the greatest headmaster that Superhero School has ever seen; Supermaul."
- ―Ruby Wright[src]
After Roger Black was accepted to Superhero School in 1985, Ruby was given the task of finding Roger. Finding Roger’s parents in their home shortly before midnight, Ruby told them their son had powers that Superhero School could teach him to harness. Ruby beckoned Roger’s mother to wake Roger, which she did. When Roger entered the living room with his mother, Wright revealed to Roger what she had just told his parents.
Once it was confirmed that Roger would be attending Superhero School, Ruby took Roger to Ed’s Motel, where the two spent the remainder of the night. At 9 p.m., Ruby awoke and proceeded to wake Roger. From there, she helped Roger find his bearings in the mutant world by taking him to Merchant Alley, to buy his school necessities. While in Merchant Alley, Ruby comforted Roger about his upcoming attendance at Superhero School, and provided him with a ticket detailing the date, time and place that he would need to catch the Great Bus.
Attack on Superhero School Edit
During the attack on Superhero School, Hayden was killed by Mrs. Twisted NoHead. Near the end of the battle, Ruby encountered the NoHeads as they were fleeing the school grounds. Ruby was grief-stricken about Hayden’s death, having been his strongest supporter. At Hayden’s funeral, Ruby almost broke down several times.
Ruby was born to a mutant father and a goblin mother, making her a half-breed. She was described to be a handsome woman: an olive-skinned face with a beak-like nose and large, black, liquid-looking eyes. Her hair was drawn back in a shining knob at the base of her neck. She dresses from head to foot in black satin, and is laden with opal jewelry. Despite her diminutive stature, she is elegant and graceful.
Powers and abilities EditScript error
Ruby Wright was a rather good mutant, being considerably advanced. A testament to her considerable mutant skills were her participation in and surviving the Battle of Superhero School. While her sword skills are not much explored, she could use Forms I and III efficiently. The origins for her certain degree of physical resistance remain a mystery. Ruby’s hands-on and outdoor style of living allowed her to acquire other skills such as craftsmanship, crossbowmanship and social networking within the community.
Ruby was quite skilled in the use of mutantry and was efficient with telekinesis. Just before Roger Black’s first year at Superhero School, Ruby reached his home, and claimed that she flew there. However it was possible that she was using her personal aircraft, although it should be noted that there was no sign of the plane. However, while he could conjure moderate levels of powerful mutantry, Ruby’s power was never flawless. However, she was nevertheless skilled with most moderate superpowers.
When it comes to creating things with the Light side, Ruby at least had some knowledge. She used her powers to conjure water, to put out a fire in the townhouse during the Attack on Superhero School. This is fairly impressive, as this power is hard to control and even experienced mutants struggle with it.
Due to Ruby’s skills at negotiating and making great connections within the community, especially with creatures of great pride such as the centaurs, she has great ability to make allies. She indirectly convinced the centaurs to fight alongside the reinforcements during the second half of the Battle of Superhero School after verbally admonishing them for their apparent cowardice, eventually resulting in the defeats of many robot soldiers.
While not a very well known skill of hers, Ruby has shown some aptitude for music.
- "He wasn't really the fatherly sort. Well … it's not in their natures, is it?"
- ―Ruby discussing her father[src]
Roger Black Edit
- "There's no Superhero School without you, Ruby."
Ruby Wright was one of Roger's first friends, if not the first. In effect, she recruited Roger to join his kind — the mutants.
Both orphaned outsiders, Roger and Ruby shared a bond that Roger never failed to honor. He constantly defended the half-goblin against name-calling and mockery, and despite his disapproval, helped Ruby protect various pets of hers. Discovering Ruby's ancestry as a half-goblin did nothing to deter their friendship; Roger showed no concern to begin with, and was in fact furious at Melissa Vance for revealing it via media, which had caused much unwanted prejudice.
Like Superquack, Hayden displays an innate trust of Ruby Wright in every situation, possessing deep faith in her. Ruby was also devastated by Hayden's death in 1995.
