Ramus is the head of the apothecary of Eldacre Castle, and is the physician and friend of the Moidart, although almost nobody knows of this relationship. It is stated that the Moidart, aware of the effect his reputation has on other people, favours Ramus for his unswerving loyalty and his frankness as well. This is shown when the Moidart asks Ramus for his opinion on the quality of the former's artwork.
