Jimba Ral is the father of Ramba Ral, and appears only in the reminiscence of Char and Sayla. He was a close associate of Zeon Zum Deikun, the founder of the Republic of Zeon. After Deikun's death, the Principality of Zeon was established by Degwin Sodo Zabi, who usurped power. To avoid persecution by the Zabis, Jimba fled to Earth with Deikun's orphaned children, Casval and Artesia, and became their guardian. He has continued to insist that Deikun's death was an assassination by Degwin's conspiracy.
