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. Rohirrim (by Facetheslayer)Edit
The Simulation starts, as the Greil Mercenaries are just finished with defeating a force of Bengion soldiers. After the bloody battle, four Mercenaries are left standing, as all of a sudden, they hear the infamous horn of Helm hammerhand. Four Rohan Soldiers are sent as the cavalry, led by Eomer, all on horseback. Ike and a Greil Mercenary with a steel bow get on horseback, as the other two mercs stay on the ground...
One of the Greil mercs open a tome, and reads it aloud, casting ElThunder, right onto the front of a sword weilding Rohirrim's horse, killing it, and sending the rider topplign over, as his back breaks and he is dead within minutes. (3-4)The Greil Merc on horseback, who weilds the Steel Bow aims it at the archer of the Rohirrim, and fires, however, the Rohirrim archer managed to bend otu of the way, however, he fell off his horse. As the Greil archer is not pay ing attention, the Rohirrim archer stood up, and extended his bow, as he fired an arrow into the eye socket of the Greil archer. (3-3)
Before the Rohirrim archer could celebrate, though, he was struck with a lightning bolt, from the Greil Mercenary thunder mage. (2-3) However, as soon as the last two Rohirrim closed the distance, one of the Rohirrim punctured the heart of the thunder mage with his Spontoon spear. (2-2) The other mercenary ran back, and armed himself with a steel poleax, and narrowly avoided the tip of the spear. On a roundabout while on the horse,the Rohirrim with the spear was dismounted, from a strike with the Steel Poleax. With one more blow from the weapon, while he was downed, he was defeated. (1-2) The other mercenary ran towards his leader to aid him in battle.
Eomer and Ike met in battle, both swinging their swords at each other on horseback. Eomer managed to use his lasso, and snare Ike's right arm, which thrown him off his horse, and caused him to hit the ground hard. As Eomer ran, trying to drag Ike off, a steel poleax struck his horse, killing it, and causing the Rohirrim leader to fall off. The Greil Merc tried to chop him again, however, Eomer rolled out of the way in time. He drawn his sword, and was fending the poleax weilder off, until he did a powerful slash to the unprotected neck of teh Greil mercenary. (1-1)
Ike had gotten to his feet, and found his sword, Ragnell. He yelled and charged at Eomer, as their blades clashed. Eomer kicked him back, and tried an overhead swing, however, it was deflected again by Ike. Ike went for a horizontal clash, however, Eomer swung his blade to clash. Eomer went fro a vertical hit again, however, Ike does a quick horizontal slash across the body of Eomer, and spins behind him, and punctured his armor with a stab. Eomer coughs blood, as Ike pushed his blade in further, before pulling it back out. (0-1) Ike then frustratedly thrusts his sword into the ground, and collapsed to his knes and gave out a yell of victory, and agony, for his friends were vanquished.

Battle vs. Lyndis' Legion (by Leolab)Edit
Prologue: Pegasus Knights Aren’t PeopleEdit
“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.
