Rangobart is the third son of a concubine and belonged to a moderately powerful aristocratic house in the Empire.

Overlord Second Half Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Overlord Second Half Arc
Rangobart intrudes and attempts to solicit Nemel as he was planning to do. However, Jet prevents Rangobart from actually getting Nemel to speak to him so he forces Nemel behind him and lies about her being busy. This leads to a verbal outburst from Rangobart. Due to the timely arrival of the student council president, the former exclaims Rangobart from his attempt of bullying.
In the coming days, many nobles attempt to introduce themselves to Fluder Paradyne and recruit him. Fluder nonetheless turns them down, even Rangobart. Soon after Rangobart is expelled from his own team, despite being the leader. At risk of being humiliated in his family he was approached by a strange young man named Momon who offered to help form a team with him.
Rangobart brings Momon to his residence where he encounters his father and elder brother. Both are initially dismissive of Rangobart's teammate, however when Momon mentions to the head of the family of how his 'miracle' was working for him, Rangobart's father suddenly was at a loss for words. He hasyily complied with Momon and escorted him to another room for a private conversation. The two left the other two young men behind, both wondering who Momon truly was.
After the two finished their conversation, Rangobart was congratulated by his father, telling him to follow Momon's every wish and sacrifice his life for him if need be, much to his confusion. Before taking his leave, Momon suggested that he and Rangobart increase their numbers in their team. To do this Momon planned to buy some slaves as teammates.
At the slave market, he grows more concerned by his new teammate, when he tried buying slaves for the Promotion Test by the next day. However due to the restrictions the merchant could not provide. Momon though offered to give the merchant loyal battle slaves in exchange as well as a large sum of gold which sealed the deal. Rangobart is stunned how the negotiations went in Momon's favor so quickly and wonders if everything was already planned.
During the ball, Rangobart was acting subservient to the new noble, Ainz Ooal Gown who Jet Testania thinks is an undead lich. When Jet lets out a yelp besides Nemel, Rangobart spotted his voice, and the pair approaches. He watches as his patron then takes Jet aside for a private talk.
Later on the day of the exam, Rangobart prepares to leave his residence when Momon arrives with his carriage and escort of knights from the Third Division of the Imperial Army. While he does no think his chances of succeeding in the exam are great given that the slaves they purchased together: Vech Aike, Cerdina Ezungrid and Quia Bashgril can be hardly be used as shield. However Momon unveils the three, now as Death Knights much to his horror and the knights. He was in disbelief of the callousness of Momon and asked if he would like to confirm they were the slaves he bought he quickly rejected. Seeing that he was out of his depth in cooperating with a being like Momon, Rangobart held an unwavering fear towards him.
Rangobart having taken the reins of one of the wagons in the convoy of knights that were escorting the students through the Tob Forest began to suffer stomach pains due to the high level of stress. Stress that is from his inability to control the situation with Momon in command. He sensed the knights unease despite their seeming profession, mostly directed at the inhuman nature of Momon, who Rangobart wondered was a dragon in disguise. After the party began to set up camp, the knights approached Rangobart. Apparently there was an issue with one of the wheels, that was not accidental but intentional as the knights had broken it for a situation to impress the students when the repaired it with magic. However that idea as the Death Knights that accompanied them simply lifted and continued on. The knights feared that Momon knew of their trickery and would be punished for it. The noble though could not offer them anything as he too was afraid of Momon and treasured his own life.
Later after they set up camp, Rangobart was called by Momon to discuss their upcoming goblin hunt. Momon admitted that though they came to their destination, returning might be difficult, to which the young noble suggested Momon go alone while the other wait. The idea was turned down as Momon stated they were a team. Rangobart then took the opportunity to ask what Momon's relationship was with the emperor, surprising Momon that he knew. Thinking he overstep his bounds, Rangobart quickly dropped the issue. The party then continued into the forest, where they finally came across goblins deep within a hole in the earth. However to the shock of all they were Zombie Goblins. Momon then took control and used his magic to of [Triplet Magic Fireball] and wiped them out stunning Rangobart and the knights. Their worries were not over as soon two Gigant Basilisks appeared. In fear the knights fled. Momong seeing this was his fight ordered his Rangobart to flee with the Death Knights as he turned to face the monsters.
