Biography

Gengen
“ Then let's go!! We will show them the might of the Kobolds! ”

Gengen is a soldier from Kobold Village who joined Viktor's mercenaries. Although he still had quite a ways to go as a warrior, his inherient brightness was found to be calming and he became something of a familiar mascot for the Mercenary Fortress.

Following the defeat of Viktor's mercenaries, Gengen, along with other survivors of the attack, became a member of the New State Army, where he served as an Infantry Captain during the Dunan Unification War. Following the war, Gengen remained a soldier, becoming a captain of the Dunan Republican Army, coming closer to his goal of being a truly great warrior.
