Henk Ranje (August 16, 1893 - June 18, 1918) was a Variotan political agitator of socialistic persuasion, operating primarily in the important port of Ranjekaat. Part of the influential Ranje family, who made their money through the Ranje Lantboerbetreif and were one of the largest mango exporters in Alharu at that time, he was groomed by his father Rinus Ranje Sr. to take over the business but instead got involved with the Rooie Partij fan'es Folke, one of the first socialist parties of Variota. Due to the status and funds available to him as a Ranje, he quickly gained a following in Ranjekaat and regularly denounced anti-socialist influences; sometimes even going so far as attacking them with his fellow socialist agitators.
Attempting to crash and break up the founding ceremony of the Sons of the Variotan Motherland, a Variotan far-right party, with some of his fellow socialist agitators, he was shot multiple times and died after he horribly underestimated the firepower in the possession of the far-right sympathizers. The attack led by Henk Ranje and the events that transpired there, including the death of Henk Ranje himself, the death of eleven other socialists and the death of Grote Wil fan Rooilamp, led to the Month of the Floating Bodies; an event in which the far-right leader Wiktor Walensa and his followers sought out every socialist agitator that attempted to crash and break up their founding ceremony and brutally murdered them.
