Before Stormblood

Legatus of the IVth legion, Noah van Gabranth led his legion against the kingdom of Dalmasca with airships. After seizing many cities, only the Nalbina Fortress remained halting the invaders with a magical barrier. For half a year the legion laid siege to the fortress, eventually conquering it at the cost of seventy thousand souls on each side.

For thirty years the empire struggled to contain violent uprisings, eventually culminating in the infamous Barheim Incident that claimed countless lives. Unable to reassert control, Noah turned to the XIVth legion for assistance.
