Peter Ratri (ピーターラートリー, Pītā Rātorī?) is the main antagonist of the The Promised Neverland series. As the 36th and current head of the famous Ratri Clan, he is the overseer of the farm system and is determined that things stay the way they are. He is also the younger brother of James Ratri as well as the descendant of Julius Ratri.


After James began his desire to free the cattle children, Peter was the one who revealed his plans to the higher-ups. While James "betrayed" the family and died fighting for his desires, Peter was chosen to become the next head of the Ratri family. Ever since then, he has been the overseer of the farm system, as well as the one that upholds the system of selling children as food to the demons.

At some point, the demon royals and five regents and the Ratri family, including Peter, heard of Mujika's clan's ability to give demons a permanent human form and intelligence, thus eliminating the need to rely on eating humans to keep themselves from devolving. They saw this as a threat to the farm systems, their money supply, their power over the "demon" world and above all else, the promise they made. So they massacred the entire clan until only Mujika was left.



Peter is a by the books no-nonsense kind of person, as demonstrated when he had several humans executed for being labeled as traitors. He is also someone who is willing to sacrifice others for the sake of keeping the promise.

Norman and Ratri shake hands

Norman agreed to aid Peter Ratri with his research.

Instead of being shipped out from Grace Field House, Norman was introduced to Peter by Isabella as Norman's new foster father, though Ratri had Norman address him by his name instead. Ratri asked Norman to help him with his research at Λ7214, to which the boy agreed. In the subsequent months, Norman lived in Λ7214 as Peter kept track of his progress.[1]

Pre-Cuvitidala Arc

After unknown events, Norman destroyed the Lamba facility and escaped it, taking all of the experimented children with him. However, many secret Minerva supporters at the facility were unable to escape, as Peter had ordered a purge to wipe out the supporters lurking behind the scenes.[2]

Pre-Imperial Capital Battle Arc

The Final Arc

Once Legravalima and the Five Regent Families are killed, Peter sends the demon army to the Paradise Hideout hideout in order to prevent the children from enacting their promise. In the process, he kidnaps all the inhabitants and transfers them all to Grace Field House to be processed as food.[3][4]


James Ratri

The two of them originally had a brotherly bond. Peter even agreed with James his way of thinking for a while because he thought that it was better. This seemed to be a facade when Peter revealed that he was just pretending to agree with James' plans. Peter even went as far to take James his title of the 35th head of the family and claim it himself. He then ordered his underlings and the rest of his clans to kill his own brother, implying the hostility between the two.
