Ragnar Magnusson (born 3034[1] – died 3???) is a saKhan of Clan Ghost Bear and the elected prince of the remnants of the Free Rasalhague Republic in absentia.

Character History[edit]

The Clan Invasion and Being Captured by two Clans[edit]

Magnusson, the son of the original Elected Prince of the Republic, Haakon Magnusson, was serving as a military officer in the Rasalhague region when the Clans struck.

During the invasion of Satalice beginning November 3051, Ragnar was serving as a Kapten with the Third Drakøns. In later the stages of the invasion he was given command of ad-hoc company of BattleMechs, which had given the name of Ragnar's Vargjagare (aka Wolf Hunter) Company. He conducted series of harassment hits against the Thirteenth Wolf's Guards, became a thorn in Natasha Kerensky's side for a time. In January 3052, he would eventually end up facing Phelan Wolf in combat and captured. He would interned be made a Bondsman of Clan Wolf.[2][3][4]

He eventually became a warrior of Clan Wolf after a period of serving as bondsman, rose to the rank of Star Captain. However, he was captured in a Trial by Clan Ghost Bear and became a Star Colonel.

The Jihad and Merge of Free Rasalhague Republic with Clan Ghost Bear[edit]

In a surprising move, the people of the remnants of the Free Rasalhague Republic, when polled, overwhelmingly chose him to be their new Elected Prince. Due to his unique status as a Clansman, he could not accept, and the long-standing leader of the Rasalhagian military was elected the Regent in his stead.

Ragnar journeyed to Orestes in 3070, and on the 21st of August he spoke to the Free Rasalhague Republic government on behalf of Clan Ghost Bear and the Ghost Bear Dominion, beginning negotiations on what would hopefully be an accord "for all Rasalhagian peoples."[5]

The road ahead is filled with an evil that can only be cleansed with the fires of Annihilation. The road behind us is littered with the bodies of our fallen, given to that cause. As you fight today, know that each of us who dies this day will have spent our lives in the name of honor, in the name of Kerensky, in the names of Sandra Tseng and Hans Jorgensson! But above all this, know that we shall forever purge these nameless monsters in the name of that which is above what makes us trueborn or freeborn, Clan or Sphere. Follow me—for Rasalhague!
