Ransom is a member of the Triarch, consisting out of the demon Beset, the god Vulcan and himself. How Ransom became immortal is unrevealed.
Ransom is created by William Christensen and Mark Seifert.
Ransom keeps a low profile, except for a few occassions.
It is known he was burned as a witch at Tibur in 1610. Together with the Triarchs, he stole the sword Despair from the demon Strife, only to lose it to Atlas later. Also with the Triarchs, he was responsible for the creation of the Ravening. And he was supposedly the sponsor of Fractur.
