After the death of General Meikasan, the Force Nymphs were forced to rely on the much less capable and unexperienced Captain Lazalin for the rest of the war. The Pitchfork girl would become the greatest nymph hero till Lazalik the Sailor took her spot.

Description

The Force Nymphs surrounded the city of Nymphii Aerovio and its surrounding areas during the beginnings of the uprising. They decided to completely wipe out the Air Nymphs before they could join up with the Thunder and Fire Nymphs. Thanks to their centralized nature and delayed mobilisation, the Air Nymphs were an easy early target. General Meikasan’s soldiers slaughtered every Air Nymph they could find. The General Malenel and Mayor Belanamon attempted a counterattack, but were defeated and killed. When everything became hopeless, Elder Belanis the Good rallied the remaining Air Nymphs for a last stand. Everyone from the homeless beggars to the richest woman took up a weapon with Belanis and made sure to sell their lives at the highest possible cost. During this last stand, General Meikasan was killed by a young Air Nymph girl with a pitchfork. This image would become the symbol on all rebel flags for the rest of the uprising and a statue of this unnamed girl with her pitchfork still stands in the great square of Nymphii Centraalio.

Start of the legends of the Ohara Family of legendary figures, independence for the Emerald Isle. Anglos would never again become the only big power in Brineina.

Description

Not much is known about the details of the battle, as it is shrouded in myth and legend. Scholars think that the Emeraldians stormed the walls of Swordfall in a surprise attack, during which the commander of the Anglosian Army, simply known as the Seventh Prince of Anglos was killed. General Arthur would take command and fight dearly. The Anglosians got back into the fight and killed the legendary Emeraldian Hero Duke Klobber. This would probably have resulted in a route if the siblings of the Ohara clan had not stepped in and rallied the troops. They fought their way to General Arthur. In the resulting fight, Blaire Ohara was blinded, but Arthur had to retreat. After Arthur retreated, the Anglosians soon had to surrender their capital to Emerald Isle and settle for peace.
