An emaciated old man. His head is already scattered with pale white hair. His limbs are little more than just twigs.
Ramposa III is described as a good person and willing to take risks to save his people from danger. He also loves his children greatly. He is very determined, as shown by the fact that although he is nearing 60 years old and having trouble walking with a war wound, he still insists on walking by himself.
King Ramposa III has reigned over the Re-Estize Kingdom for at least thirty-nine years. When he inherited the throne, the Kingdom was already in a dire political state due to mistakes made by previous kings. Throughout his reign, he tried to reform the Kingdom, but to no avail. During a previous annual war with the Baharuth Empire, Ramposa III sustained a grave knee injury. As a result, he now has trouble walking and requires a cane to walk.
In recent years, even though it has long been time to abdicate his throne, he still has not decided on a suitable successor due to political complications. The reason why he couldn't do so was because neither one of his two sons is said to be blessed with the capacity to rule.

King Ramposa III summoned the royalists and the great nobles together for a meeting. He revealed that he had received a message from the Baharuth Empire, demanding that the Re-Estize Kingdom must hand over E-Rantel and the surrounding area to the newly founded Sorcerer Kingdom, led by the Sorcerer King, Ainz Ooal Gown. Knowing they did not stand a chance against Ainz, Gazef advised him to just hand over the territory. However, as a king who cares about his people, he could not follow Gazef's advice and decided to go to war against the Empire and Nazarick.
Several months later, Ramposa III attended a strategy meeting with the other leaders of the Royal Army. Knowing he was in no condition to lead the army himself, he handed over supreme command to Marquis Raeven. Also, having taken Gazef's advice to heart, he send his oldest son, Crown Prince Barbro, to Carne Village under the cause of information gathering to remove him from the battlefield and guarantee his safety.
After the meeting, the King had a conversation with Gazef, Marquis Raeven and the Mayor of E-Rantel. The Mayor implied that the Kingdom will not survive another war with the Empire. On top of that, many peasants will likely start to risk dying of starvation due to bad harvests, much to his dismay.
The battle against the Empire and Nazarick turned into a large-scale massacre when Ainz used a spell to destroy a large part of the Kingdom's army and summoned five Dark Young. As they destroyed what was left of the army, Gazef's Warrior Troop decided to act as decoys to allow Ramposa III to retreat back to E-Rantel. The king himself wanted them to leave him and run for themselves, but they insisted that he must live.
Either because of the escape strategy or because Ainz ordered the Dark Young to stop, Ramposa III ended up surviving the massacre. He called for another meeting where it was unanimously decided to hand over the territory around E-Rantel to Nazarick. He wanted to hire some adventurers to search for Barbro, who still hasn't returned from his mission to Carne Village. He was also unwilling to accept that Gazef, whom was killed during the battle, refuses to be resurrected.

- (To Gazef Stronoff): "Warrior Captain, it is truly splendid you were able to return safely."
- (To Gazef About Ainz): "This really is a beautiful story. Selflessly placing himself in danger to rescue the weak"
- (To Gazef): "Because of my superficial way of thinking, I was unable to protect you, and for that I am sincerely sorry. Even when issuing you a dangerous order, I was unable to give you the best equipment for the job… we are asking for your forgive-, no, please forgive me… Your subordinates also lost their lives because of this."
- (To Gazef): "Warrior-Captain, whom I trust like my right hand. Even if you are the one who puts forth that proposal, I cannot agree to it. No ruler should give up the land he rules without a fight. Such an act cannot be allowed for the sake of the people who live upon it"
- (To Gazef): "Then… is this not an opportune time? I have many supporters now due to the disturbance. Should we not strike a telling blow to the Empire, no matter the cost, so we can win a few years of peace for the Kingdom?"
