Biography: 

Ringo, the same age as Bayard Sartoris, stands as both Bayard's slave and his constant childhood companion; he may even be Bayard's half-brother. He plays a particularly important role in Rosa Millard's mule-trading business in "The Unvanquished": eventually Bayard comes to see that Ringo becomes practically an equal partner with Rosa, and in some ways is even superior to her and to Bayard, as he freely advises both of them and even at one point orders Bayard to fetch paper and ink. He is the one who realizes Ab Snopes has betrayed her, and he tries to talk her out of confronting Grumby.
