Historical FiguresEdit


General Lagune was a military leader of the Human forces during the Faunus Rights Revolution. At the Battle of Fort Castle, the inexperienced general attempted to catch the Faunus off-guard in a nocturnal attack, failing to take into account their superior night vision. Despite having a massive army, he was defeated and captured. Lagune and his blunder are mentioned in "Jaunedice, Pt.2".

His name is derived from the word "Lagoon", which refers to small bodies of water.

Emperor of MistralEdit

TGW Mistral1

The Emperor of Mistral was the ruler of Mistral during the Great War.

General of MantleEdit

TGW Mantle2

The General of Mantle was the ruler of Mantle during the Great War.

Queen of VacuoEdit

TGW Vacuo

The Queen of Vacuo was the ruler of Vacuo during the Great War, she is shown to be a Faunus with bull horns and wearing a scarf.

At the start of the Great War, Vacuo remained neutral, due to Mantle and Mistral having established a presence in their territory in the years prior. When the two began pressuring Vacuo to ally with them, the citizens of Vacuo realized that if Vale fell, there would be no one left to stop Mistral and Mantle from conquering them. Vacuo rallied against Mantle and Mistral and pushed them out of the Vacuan territory and allied themselves with Vale.

During the Vacuo campaign, the King of Vale arrived and personally led his army alongside the Queen of Vacuo, thoroughly decimating the opposing forces.

Following this battle, the four kingdoms gathered on neutral ground on the island of Vytal, where they formed a treaty and planned the future of Remnant. Although the Kingdoms were ready to bow before the rule of Vale and it's Warrior King, he decided against it. Instead, the leaders redistributed territories, abolished slavery and restructured the governments.
