  • Ronin was traded to Inferni so Salsola could breed one of their horses with an Inferni-owned mare.
  • A general-use animal, Ronin was part of Inferni's communal herd for several seasons.
  • Following The Second Boreas Conflict, Ronin was given to Omar de le Poer by his father.
  • When Omar was killed, an injured Ronin returned to the family's care. He became more of a pet, fawned over by Versace Inferni while he healed, and has come to identify the family as his "herd".
