Ratimir is a 10th century Great Moravian from the eastern portion of the Moravia kingdom (Slovakia/Hungary).  He has fought both with and against the Magyars and the Germans who brought down the Mikulcice dynasty.  He has made what wealth he has by serving as a guide and guard for merchants travelling on the Kiev-Regensburg trade route (through the Raffelstetten toll bar) and up the Morava to Staregard and, more rarely, Hedeby, on the Baltic. 

Joined 8/81, Beloit (c/o Jaravellir, pre-Northshield as a Principality); Lives in the Middle, has lived also in the East and Calontir for significant periods of time.
