Ralf first appears in Chapter 15, where he and the Friege general Amalda work together to fend off bandits threatening a small village. Leif's army arrives on the scene shortly after to assist in the defense, and Leif can speak to Ralf. Ralf, upon learning of Leif' identity, will request to join the army, stating that he cannot stand the Empire's tyranny.
Ralf then goes on to continue supporting Leif in his cause to liberate Northern Thracia from the Grannvale Empire. He retires from his work as a mercenary thereafter, choosing to take up farming to help in Thracia's rebuilding efforts.
Ralf is portrayed as a person with a strong sense of honour, committed towards fighting against injustice. This is shown right from his introduction in Chapter 15, where he takes up arms to protect a village from an impending bandit invasion of his own volition, expecting no reward in return for his efforts.

Subjective: The following part of this article is based upon the editor's personal experiences and opinions, and therefore may not be applicable for all readers.
Ralf is a decent combatant, coming with solid base stats, weapon ranks, and growth rates. He will thus be able to kill most enemies in Thracia 776 with little difficulty.
In addition to an A Rank in Swords, Ralf has nearly a B Rank in Axes, allowing him to use every axe and every sword in the game almost right after his recruitment (due to there being no A rank axes in Thracia 776).
Ralf - Wandering Sellsword (流れ者の傭兵 Nagare-sha no yōhei)
- "Taking up farming tools with the same ferocity as he swung a sword, Ralph poured his energy into healing the land. Save for this one detail, no other record of Ralph can be found in historical texts. Having made no effort to preserve a record of his deeds, he is emblematic of the many humble folk who aided in Thracia's restoration, but chose to fade into obscurity..."

- In the game data of Thracia 776, Ralf is coded to promote to a Hero. However, as he joins as a Hero, he cannot promote, suggesting that he may have been initially intended to be an Axe Fighter.
