Ridley Wizen is the leader of the Two River City Kobold district. A motivated soldier, Ridley didn't miss a training session for years and was considered a general with the highest command ability by Shu. During the Dunan Unification War, Ridley became ensnared in a Highland Kingdom plot that exploited the tensions present in Two River. Ridley, after finding a "secret communique" between Kiba Windamier and Makai that offered a peace treaty in exchange for Two River's Kobold District. However, Ridley was moved by the attempts of the Winged Horde to fight alone and Ridley realized that despite their differences, the people of Two River were still all citizens who wished to defend their home.

Following the defense of Two River, Ridley joined the New State Army and fought in several of the war's battles. Ridley was a brave officer, unafraid to risk his own life for what he believed in, such as when he and Shu used Highland's own racial tensions plot against them during a battle in Radat Town by having Ridley feint offence at a decision to place Kobold troops on the front line, then attack the Highland Army's flanks during the next battle.
