Blade is a new character in R&C:RoI (Ratchet & Clank: Rise of Infernox). He was the original idea for Amber, but was made a seprate character. He is the 5th lombax introduced in the R&C series (Ratchet, Angela Cross, Alister Azimuth, Amber). He is Ratchet's brother, and the fighter. Ratchet only fights when needed, while Blade just fights for fun. He starts a group known as the "Lombax Alpha Squad". It consists of Ratchet, Amber, Blade, Azimuth, Angela and 2 lombax soldiers. He trained the soldiers after he found them hiding on an asteroid. He says, (quote) "There's got to lombaxes in the universe." after he shows the squad to Ratchet, Clank, Angela and Amber. Infernox taunts him by saying they fled long ago. Blade was believed to have died after the Cragmite invasion. He also says Ratchet has a sister named Amber (Tears of Forgotten Past by Phoenix Nightstar on FanFiction.net) that crashed on another planet, and suggestes they go there.
