Biography

Imperial Guardsman
“ The most powerful general is most certainly General Teo McDohl, victor of a hundred out of a hundred battles. Don't you agree? ”

Teo McDohl was one of the Five Great Generals of the Scarlet Moon Empire, who had fought under Barbarosa Rugner during the War of Succession. He was known as the invincible general because of his amazing feat of having never lost a single battle.

He was incredibly devoted to Barbarosa and was known for his many feats of valour during the War of Succession. His noble bearing and personality earned him the respect of many people as well as powerful loyalty from his subordinates.

Teo never remarried after his only wife, the mother of his son passed away due to illness shortly after his birth. It seems that she was a commoner and an unaffected and sincere sort who was deserving of the term "wise mother." In the past, it was Teo who adopted Ted, thinking him a war orphan. Teo was also an old friend of Ain Gide, Commander of the Fortress of Kwaba. Teo did not think highly of Kraze Miles, regarding him as a weakling. He also seemed to have some form of relationship with fellow general Sonya Shulen.

Early in the Gate Rune War, Teo was assigned to the north, supposedly to protect the border with the City-State of Jowston and was favoured by Barbarosa enough to receive his own sword, Prakk, for the mission. At least some of his activities fell outside of this briefing as the razing of Rokkaku would indicate.

His son's ascension to leader of the Toran Liberation Army was considered by some to have sullied Teo's name. Teo himself swore to show no mercy for his son. An initial victory in battle saw the Liberation Army forced to retreat with Teo's advance only staved off after losing a duel against Pahn, although whether Teo held back is undetermined.

The rematch ended in a total victory for the Liberation Army and Teo's first and only loss in battle, thanks to the Liberation Army's use of Fire Spears. However, Teo refused to surrender, challenging his son to a duel which was accepted. Teo was defeated in the duel and with his final words admitted he fought for the Emperor out of stubbornness and gave blessing to his son's choice. His final words told his son how proud he was that his son had surpassed himself.
