How Rideaux joined the Tourney

Rideaux (リドウ・ゼク・ルギエヴィート Ridou Zeku Rugievuito) is a doctor from Spirius Corporation who saved Ludger and Elle's life and put Ludger in debt. Though a member of the Kresnik bloodline, he was born into poverty as a sickly child destined to die. Derrick Mathis saved his life by replacing some of his internal organs with Medical Spyrix. Rideaux took on shady work to get money to pay for his treatment that his family could not afford, until Bisley realised he was a Chromatus user and took Rideaux in to work for him. Rideaux's life is ultimately used by Bisley so that he could enter the Land of Cannan.

Resurrected by HYDRA, Rideaux is ordered to give a lethal operation on Falcon.
