From his appearance and posture, there is no doubt that he is well into middle age, but he is surprisingly well-built and in shape. Long fringes of hair cover half of his forehead and his right cheek. A strong nose bridge stands high between his shining hawkish eyes. His deep, low voice has the power to command other people's attention.
Ranald is the martial-arts teacher of Tir Chonaill school. Born and raised in the town, he was a former warrior famed for valor and strength, trained personally by Duncan. He also worked as a mercenary for the city of Dunbarton. Likewise, tales of his heroism are frequently told by townspeople.
In his teaching times, Trefor was one of his best students. He also sells the book: "Don't Give Up! Trefor's Training Towards Veteranship" for 1000g.
In his past, he went into Rabbie Dungeon and recklessly defeated the Skeletons that got in his way, and even simply destroyed a Succubus in one hit. In Trefor's book, it shows that Ranald taught his students how to conquer a charms of the opposite gender.
This event can be viewed through an RP dungeon.
In early years, he claims to have had unrequited sentiments towards Endelyon. Judging from his long hair covering the slight scar on the forehead, he appears to be somewhat conscious of his appearance.
Aside from the abrupt mood shifts during his drinking binge, Ranald is a respected and contributive member of Tir Chonaill.
