When her King's fleets neared and it seemed as though Queravia would receive aid, one last force gathered to defeat her. Niers, the second-in-command of the Forgotten Wing, brought together every company from the marshy cities to the eastern ports and as he shouted at the [Captains] and commanders gathered before him, he raised a banner and they followed him to launch an assault on her position. On that day the two greatest [Strategists] in the world clashed.

After having playing 3 chess game with a new unknown player, he sat in front of his small chessboard, with a dark expression on his face and mused to himself that his mystery player is gone and that someone who knows chess but has barely played it at all, found the board.

He stared at the chessboard and at Magnolia's letter and considered leave for Issrysil, but dismissed the idea and stared at the chessboard darkly, and hoped that this new opponent would eventually give the board back or find its true owner.

He kept staring at the chess pieces, the letter, and then at the window, and told himself that he couldn’t leave, as he has a job and a duty as he is the second-in-command of his Company. So he kept staring back to the chessboard, waiting for his mystery player.[2]

Trivia

  • Niers Astoragon was 29 when the Forgotten Wing Company attained prominence.[4]
  • Lady Magnolia calls him the world’s smallest strategist.
  • He is surprisingly considered tall among his race.
  • He is infamous for having only one class.
  • Niers had been fighting for over fifty years in Baleros’s endless plains and deep jungles.
  • His armor is more expensive than any [Lord]’s, given that [Blacksmith]'s have a terrible time forging anything so small.
  • It is claimed that Niers is the most famous Fraerling in the world. He is considered a Hero to the children of his kind.
  • So far in a game of chess against Erin, he won two games and lost four.
  • To all of the world he is the one who invented chess, but in truth he isn't.
  • He liked to send messages to himself or send coded missives with nothing in them of value to friends quite often, just to annoy people who spied on him.
  • His best students could win one game out of ten against him, at best. Other [Generals] and [Strategists] could win two games in ten, or three in ten, but that was all.
  • Niers had been fighting for over fifty years in Baleros’s endless plains and deep jungles.[5]
  • Before he played against Erin he leveled up only one time in the last decade.[6]

  • According to the public, chess was invented one year ago.[8]

Quotes

  • (To his students) “Try not to agonize over the woman too much, would you? Magnolia Reinhart’s mind would put most [Strategists] and [Generals] to shame and we have a battle to win.”
  • (To himself) “Come back soon, will you? It grows terribly lonely without you.”
  • “Marian. Get a bow and shoot that damn bird. It’s a hazard if there are any Fraerlings about.”
  • (To Foliana) “I am not cursed. That’s a myth, and the company’s official stance is that it’s just gossip. I am not cursed—”
  • (To himself) "Damn the lace. Damn insipid Human fashions!”
  • (To Magical Rats) “Hello. They call me the Titan.”
  • (To Marian) “Have someone remove the flesh, but save the bones. I have a mind to turn it into a drinking cup.”
  • (To Stitchmistress) “Fashion? I’m a former Named Adventurer and the second-in-command to one of the Great Companies of Baleros. They can have their fashion. I’ll have my dignity.”
