Your voice... I remember you. Think you can defeat me, the man who taught you how to fight? Heh. What a fool. Come on boy, come try me!
— Griel, Founder of the Greil Mercenaries

The Greil Mercenaries are a group of Crimean soldiers in the 7th century. Their work revolves around fighting local brigands and protecting villages for money. They had relatively modest objectives until they found Princess Elincia. As the country of Daein invaded Crimea, in the Mad King's War, after a battle taking the place over many months, the leader of the Greil Mercenaries defeated King Ashnard, of Daein in battle, and also assisted the half beast Laguz alliance against the Bengion armies, who had slaughtered their people.

Battle vs. Lyndis' Legion (by Leolab)[]

Prologue: Pegasus Knights Aren’t People[]

“We’re almost at Castle Caelin,” Lyn says, surveying the lightly-forested area in front of her, alongside Marc and Kent. “Be careful. We don’t know what final surprise Lundgren might have for us.”

“Umm…” a timid voice pokes out, “I… can help scout…” a short, lilac-haired woman peeks out from behind a tree, flinching back as the two men meet her gaze.

“That’s a good idea, Florina,” Lyn says, turning and smiling at her friend. The skittitsh woman nods eagerly and retreats, readying her lance and Pegasus.

“She’ll never get used to men, will she?” Kent asks, looking fondly at the woman.

“It’ll be hard to integrate her into the Caelin Knights if she doesn’t,” Marc says, “And that would be a waste of her talents and your friendship.”

The three keep a close watch on Florina as she soars into the sky, ready to rush to her aid if need be.

“Have I mentioned that I don’t like this?” Titana grumbles as the Greil Mercenaries move through a foreign land.

“Many times,” Soren says, “Waste of breath, since it’s not like we have much choice.”

“I don’t like it, either,” Ike says, “But the Black Fang has pledged to return us to Tellius if we finish the contract. Protecting a noble from a usurper is in line with what we’ve done before, too.”

“True enough. And it seems the enemy has sent a scout,” Titania says, pointing at the Pegasus Knight flying in the sky above them. The scout notes their presence, and Titania gallops off to fetch Shinon.

“Sorry, Ike,” Soren says, and casts Tornado as Florina turns around. The wind magic severely injures her, and she drops out of the sky. Shinon finishes the unfortunate woman off, firing an arrow straight through rider and mount as she drops.

Ike frowns at Soren, and then calls the Greil Mercenaries together with a shout. Their foes had spotted their attack, and were charging their position.
