Role in the Books
When Harry is serving his detention in the Forbidden Forest, he, Hermione, and Hagrid hear something moving. Challenged, the something moving turns out to be Ronan, a Centaur, who discusses astronomy ("Mars is very bright tonight").
Later, when Harry has encountered the being that is killing Unicorns, Firenze, another Centaur, rescues him, and offers to carry him back to Hagrid. As he is doing so, Ronan (along with Bane, another centaur), confront Firenze. Bane is infuriated that Firenze is acting as a beast of burden, while Ronan says dolefully that he is sure Firenze is doing what he thinks best.
Ronan is one of the centaurs who confront Dolores Umbridge in the Forbidden Forest when Hermione is leading her (and Harry) to the supposed weapon they claim to have been working on. After Umbridge is spirited away, and the others are trying to decide what to do with Harry and Hermione, Ronan reminds the others that they do not attack foals.
Ronan is strong of character and has a well-aligned moral compass. He does not berate Firenze for carrying Harry in the first book, and exhorts the other centaurs to not harm the Trio in the fifth, as the centaurs "do not harm foals".
As a centaur himself, Ronan is also a well-practised archer, fighter and astrologer.
