Hah, relax! Won’t be long, an’ I’ll be bringin’ Kinbois’s lot along for the fun. When I do, all Grannvale’s our oyster. Even Belhalla oughta be easy pickings with nuthin’ around to stop us!
— Gandolf, to Gerrard

(ガンドルフ Gandolf) was a belligerent prince of Verdane, the eldest son of King Bator, and the ruler of Marpha Castle in the country's south-east.

Biography

On his father's orders, in Grann 757 Gandolf led the Verdane army on a raid of neighboring Grannvale, in an attempt to prevent Grannvale from invading Verdane first. Gandolf's army beseiged and conquered Jungby Castle, with Gandolf personally almost killing Midayle to end the siege, then he abducted its stewardess Lady Adean to be a trophy wife, taking her back to Verdane and leaving the Grannvale raid in the hands of his subordinates, intending to return later with his brother Kinbois to pillage the country further. Back at Marpha Castle, upon realizing that his brother Jamke had released Adean from her imprisonment in the castle, he deployed his army to retrieve her and Dew and to fight Sigurd's impending invasion force. He was defeated and slain in this battle.

Personality and character

Gandolf was a brutal man in every respect, viewing the invasion of Grannvale and the ransacking of its commoners as a fun activity. He was easily frustrated by things not going as he liked, such as when his army took so long to seize Jungby or when Jamke released Adean and Dew. He was particularly misogynistic in his treatment of Adean, and by extension the rest of the women of Grannvale, planning to force her to marry him and talking about her as if she was little more than a mindless object when talking about her to Gerrard.[1] Like his father and Kinbois, Gandolf was easily misled by Sandima and willingly did anything asked of him by the sorcerer.[2]
