The brave general who leads the Trei’kur Army. He is a signeturgy swordsman who is skilled in the use of a sword, but also specializes in fire-based attacks. He is brutal and a savage, and will not hesitate to take the most vile means necessary to carry out what he must do.
He does not hesitate when it comes to his vile behavior, such as taking Relia hostage.
When the King’s Chosen—the group Victor belongs to—invades East Trei’kur, they do battle with Der Suul…
Trei’kur Execution Tower
The Trei’kur Execution Tower is an execution site northwest of East Trei’kur. In the days of old, the Trei’kur Army would execute criminals here, but today it is used as a campsite for soldiers.
Before heading to the Execution Tower, the formidable foe Der Suul lies in wait.
Mysterious Research Facility
A vast research facility where technology was developed, and where machinery and some sort of creatures inside glass-shaped tubes filled with liquid can be seen. What kind of research was going on using these creatures?
Suspiciously-dressed soldiers and machine-type enemies block the way before you.
The Transporter is a system that lets you warp to any location from the Charles D. Goale warp room. Since you can return back to the Charles D. Goale by using a transmission device, you can move to faraway locations via the Charles D. Goale.
