When at last Paltina is reclaimed, Milanor feels uncomfortable with the prospect of a settled life, longing for the unknown reaches of the continent. He has scarcely time to reconsider the path his life has taken, before Yggdra is captured by Gulcasa. He takes off after her, against the wishes of his longtime friend Kylier. After Yggdra's rescue, Milanor remains a vital asset to the Royal Army and Yggdra's closest confidant. His soul is torn, however, when Kylier kills herself to destroy the Ankh Cannon.

When she misses the mark, Zilva moves to kill her, but is prevented from doing so by Kylier. She again tries to kill her brother, but is ambushed by Emilia. The Royal Army saves her and helps her to stop Leon. Later she returns the favor by sniping Aegina in the eye, sending Aegina's squad into a panic at the very moment the Royal Army can resist Bronquia no longer.

Major Characters (Bronquia) Edit
These twins are immediate kin to Yggdra. Eventually they came to the attention of Gulcasa, who recognized their ability and appointed them his personal taskforce commanders.

Luciana is the elder twin, and Aegina is the younger.
The leader of Bronquia's Imperial Knights, Leon is callous and undeniably cruel. His penchant for elaborate ambushes, and his joy at watching the negative reactions of the Royal Army to them, convinces Elena of his sadistic nature, leading her to attempt his assassination. Leon is unmoved by the betrayal of his younger sibling, and attempts to kill her himself. Cocky to the end, he is slain at the Gate of Redemption in Lost Aries.

When this legacy is tapped, his body becomes a vessel for Brongaa's rage, incinerating everything around him.
Gulcasa is possessed by a deep hatred for the weak. He worships the exercise of strength and is determined to see the most powerful on the continent dominate. On this point he is adamant; he will not compromise. Only through total defeat can Gulcasa be placated at all.
Centuries ago, Nessiah was cast from Asgard by the gods for rebelling against the Gods. His true body lies imprisoned within the island of Ancardia and held by the Chains of Conviction. In order to free himself and exact vengeance for what was done to him, Nessiah gave his sword, the Gran Centurio, Paltinaeas who used it to found the kingdom of Fantasinia.
