Invincible Shield – Hero of the Republic


Given Name: Invincible Shield
Galkan Name: Ginuva
Date of Birth: 738 C.E.
Current Position: Legatus of the 3rd Republican Legion
Achievements: While a centurion, engaged in numerous battles with the San d'Orian knights and the Mithran Navy. While a praefectus, led skirmishes against the Quadav Shieldwarriors and thwarted various ambushes conceived by the Sahagin. After being promoted to legatus, focused efforts on eradicating the growing number of pirates on the Bastore Sea.

After the Great War, Invincible Shield retired from his position of legatus, and spent the next several years writing the world-renowned "Ginuva's Battle Theory" while continuing service in the Republican Army’s first reserve.

However, during a tour of inspection encompassing several countries in the Far East, Invincible Shield obtained crucial information that hinted at impending danger for Bastok and eventually all Vana’diel. Upon his return to the Republic, he immediately reenlisted himself in the army and returned to his position as legatus. Invincible Shield’s current duties focus on the retraining and reeducation of the Republican Army’s forces using methods based on various Conflict exercises.
