A hunter who dwelled in the wilds of Bozja, Ratimir left his simple life to take up arms against the Garlean Empire when the citadel was destroyed. As he saw it, imperial hubris had led to the deaths of countless innocents, and he would not leave his countrymen unavenged. Already skilled in using a firearm, his was a natural progression to the role of Resistance marksman.
Ratimir's legend began on the night an imperial company assaulted the encampment at Gorava. The surprise onslaught threw the Resistance ranks into helpless confusion, the lack of a coherent defense elevating the offensive into outright slaughter. The survivors rallied and sought to break free of the attackers, but the net was drawn too tightly to escape. As they waited grimly for their demise, one of the advancing imperials slumped to the ground, killed by a marksman from the shadows. More and more imperial soldier fell, and as the death toll mounted, it was now the aggressors turn to panic. When morning came and the weary Resistance troops surveyed the carnage, they found thirty-six imperial corpses with bullet wounds to the head.
Ratimir was enthralled by Save the Queen. Due to the time he was exposed to the blade's aether, Ratimir's body transformed beyond recognition and became part of Queen's guard. He is faced and defeated by the Warrior of Light in Delubrum Reginae.
Ratimir is fought as Queen’s Gunner in Delubrum Reginae.
