Seed“It wouldn't be pleasant to be left standing on scorched earth after the war's over, would it?”
Seed was an impulsive officer of the Highland Army. He had a strong preference for action over strategizing which occasionally lent him to make hasty decisions. He always fought with his sword at the forefront of battle, befitting his personality. Although his hot-headed nature contrasted strongly with that of Culgan, they nonetheless had a strong bond, brought about by their patriotism for the Highland Kingdom.
During the Dunan Unification War, he came to feel that Luca Blight's continued presence would bring catastrophe to the Highland and pledged his sword to Jowy Atreides in order to protect Highland. However, although Jowy would overthrow Luca, in the end Highland would fall and Seed perished alongside Culgan in L'Renouille Palace attempting to fight off the New State Army. As he died, he held onto his joy in serving his country.
