Appearance and Personality
Boss Theme: The Encounter
Rourke is very aggressive, but beatable. He'll attack with quick and swift combos from his combat knife, which will cut away at Mickey's HP if not blocked, and will fire multiple shots from his gun which can deplete a lot of HP. Rourke will even attempt to grab Mickey and bodyslam him, taking away a large portion of HP. Using magic will stun him and help a lot in battle, along with using Milo's limit, which can also do pretty decent damage. Rourke will also summon countless amounts of Darkhearts into battle.
