In the Anime series, when Raphtalia was taken to Ratotali’s homeland, she remembered her past and how Naofumi’s parents took care of her for a long time. So she named herself Raphtalia due to a story that is a name from a Raph Race that she heard from Naofumi parents when she was young.

What we know about Raphtalia’s Parents from the Light Novel

In the light novel, there are only a few things that we know aboutRaphtalia’ss parents. One is that they are commoners, Naofumi’ss father was a blacksmith, and his mother was a seamstress.

They were very kind people to little Raphtalia when she stayed in their house for a couple of days. Naomi’s mother taught her about housekeeping and sewing, while his father taught her how to play with the sword when she was young.

We know from the Anime series that Naofumi’s parents invited Raphtalia into their house after they saw that she had nowhere else to go in the village. They were a very kind family to Raphtalia, just like how they treated Naofumi when she stayed in their house.
