Ramirez DePietro was a flamboyant pirate from Dominaria, who pillaged the seas surrounding Jamuraa around 3000 AR. He had a past with Adira Strongheart which was left purposely vague. Ramirez and Tor Wauki later fought against the Robaran Mercenaries before being pitifully defeated.

Ramirez DePietro's likeness also appeared nearly a thousand years later when his form was assumed by the shapeshifter Halfdane. Halfdane claimed to have killed the original DePietro, but this is widely regarded as a fluke of continuity, as DePietro would have died almost a thousand years previous to the events in question.

Trivia

  • Ramirez is a Spanish family name, Di Pietro (that Americans would write "De Pietro", as Di Niro became De Niro in the States) is a South-Italian family name, but South Italy was ruled by Spain until 1860. Therefore, the name of this character is definitely Spanish (to be precise: South Italy was part of the Kingdom of Spain until 1714, then it became an independent kingdom until 1860, but still with kings and nobility mostly from Spain).
  • Ramirez DePietro has two family names, but no first name, as it is often usual in the United States (e.g. think of MacKenzie Hamilton or Kendall Jenner).
