Characters / Dragon Force Bozack Nation

Go To

Living deep within the jungle, the beasts of Bozack have become totally self-sufficient since the attack of Madruk. Before, they relied heavily on the surrounding nations for their necessities, but that changed forever after Madruk destroyed much of their lands. Now, they have very few dealings with their neighbours, and trust no one. Bozack, unlike other nations, tends to be more of a democracy rather than a monarchy. However, its people still look to their leader, Gongos, for direction.


The forestry and agricultural industries are Bozack's main sources of income. Bananas are one of their chief exports. With the exception of manufactured items, there is little need for the import of other products. The beasts tend to live in a rather anarchial society; however, they do obey the laws set out by their monarch...most of the time.

Located at the south-west part of Legendra, Bozack is surrounded by the ocean to the east, west, and south. The only route out of the country is to the north. This, combined with dense forests, severely limits the possibility of a surprise, land-based attack on its capital.

Class: Beast
Despite his diminutive appearance, Gongos rules the jungles of Bozack with the strength of a thousand beasts. He is a very generous and chivalrous person who hates crafty strategies and unnecessary plunder. He is held dear by his subjects, who have named him "The Guardian of the Forest".
  • An Axe to Grind: In his combat sprite and PS2 artwork. One of two types of weapons male Beasts can use.
  • Angrish: When captured in anyone else's scenario.
  • Artificial Stupidity: When controlled by the AI. If you attack him with melee troops, he'll often place his own troops in the "breach" formation, where the vast majority will be clustered around the middle rows of the battlefield. If you have a general with Sonic Wave (hits the centre 3 rows), or Sonic Blast (hits the centre 5 rows), you can easily decimate his army with just 1 or 2 spells.
  • Barbarian Hero: "The Guardian of the Forest".
  • Big Damn Heroes: In Teiris' campaign, he and his Five-Man Band actually leave for a brief moment after Wein pulls his Big Damn Heroes moment (see Highland's character page). Later on, when Goldark challenges Teiris, Gongos and his team return to intercept him. Gongos then forces a battle with Goldark. Fortunately, Beasts have an advantage over Cavalry.
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Butt-Monkey: As a comic relief character, Gongos is often subject to this. Of note, Teiris does not reciprocate his amorous advances, and runs off with Wein at the end of his campaign, and Scythe even ends up forgetting that he exists (intentionally or otherwise) during the Forest Shrine encounter, where he, Teiris, and Reinhart go looking for the Sun Bracelet.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Mild compared to other examples, but Gongos stands out as one of the characters who will let off an impressive stream of swear words when captured.
  • Dumb Muscle: Especially when compared to the rest of the Dragon Force.
  • Fantastic Racism: Hugely subverted by Gongos. The Elves and Beast Men really don't get along, probably because of past events concerning the previous Dragon Force, but Gongos falls head-over-heels for Teiris (the Elf-Queen), going so far as to propose to her in the epilogue of his campaign! he doesn't get her in the end; Teiris marries Wein.
  • Hot-Blooded: By Astea, yes. Doubly so with his PS2 voice acting.
  • Interspecies Romance: Gongos attempts this with Teiris. It doesn't take.
  • It Amused Me/ Self-Imposed Challenge: According to his prologue, Gongos starts out wanting to take over Legendra for shits and giggles.
  • Love at First Sight: Again, with Teiris.
  • Love Triangle: With Teiris, against Wein. It's a benign one, though, and one-sided on Gongos' part.
  • Pelts of the Barbarian
  • Power Fist: Can equip the Sun Bracelet from the Forest Shrine.
  • Tribal Face Paint
  • Wolverine Claws: The other type of weapon male Beasts can use.
  • Verbal Tic: Occasionally, he will end his sentences with "Yesss..."

Nirutaba keeps Gongos informed on the war. He also helps to plan military strategies.

Class: Beast
As Gongos' childhood friend, Rygar and Gongos have a close friendship, said to be sealed in blood. He is the eldest of his family, and is noted for his calm demeanour and clear thinking abilities.

Class: Beast
Baghib lacks the mental discipline of a trained soldier. He tends to fly off the handle at even the most minor annoyances. Due to his quick and violent temper, he feels that he is unstoppable in a fight.
  • An Axe to Grind: Like all Beasts, he can equip axes.
  • The Berserker: Described as such.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: His dialogue emphasizes his constant state of anger.
  • Loners Are Freaks: When he enters battle without any troops, he yells "I'm alone and pissed off at the world!"
  • The Nose Knows: He will sometimes say something about the smell of his opponents in the pre-battle dialogue. For example, he will notice that Scythe smells like a demonic creature.
  • Tribal Face Paint
  • Wolverine Claws: The other weapon Beasts can equip. Displayed in his battle sprite.

Class: Spirit User
Katt has a deep respect for her two older brothers; however, they tend to stick her with the responsibility of caring for Yuni. With her quick temper and magic skills, she makes for a fearsome opponent.
  • Cat Girl/ Cute Monster Girl
  • Damsel in Distress: Captured by Ryskim in his second encounter in Gongos's campaign.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Summon Reaper could be considered this. See HP to 1 below.
  • Fanservice: Her black Leotard of Power looks like a one-piece swimsuit.
  • Hot Witch: An attractive dark skinned girl with long white hair, red facial markings, that wears a tight leotard that accentuates her curves, who can use very powerful spells.
  • HP to 1: Katt's tier 3 spell, Summon Reaper, has the unique gimmick of reducing the enemy general's HP to 1, allowing for an easy kill. The catch? It reduces her HP to 1 as well.
  • Mystical White Hair: To emphasize her mystical background among the rest of her more brutish kinsmen.
  • Playing with Fire: Flame Cannon.
  • The Smart Guy: She appears to be Gongos' shaman.
  • Secret Art: Played Straight and inverted. Katt is the only character in the game that learns Summon Reaper, and once of the two that learns Summon Golem. However, she's the only Spirt User in the game that can't learn Dark Vortex.
  • Summon Magic: Aside from Summon Reaper, above, Katt is the only character (other than Scythe) who learns Summon Golem.
  • Tribal Face Paint: Her markings make her look even more like a cat.
  • Wolverine Claws: In her sprite. Par the course for a Beast, though she's actually a Spirit User general, and thus can't equip this kind of weapon.

Class: Beast
Yuni is the baby in her family and is used to getting what she wants. She tries to make herself a dangerous fighter; however, she still tends to act like an immature, spoiled brat.

     Gunner's army (Gunner, Rykker, Norse, and Silva) 
Classes: Beast (Gunner, Silva), Knight (Rykker), Fighter (Norse)
Exiled by Gongos' father for trying to take Bozack's throne for himself, Gunner is ambitious beastman who wants to be King of Bozack, thinking that Gongos' family are weak monarchs. The descendant of Leviathan, a former Bozack King and member of a previous Dragon Force.

Silva is his partner/right hand woman. Norse and Rykker are merely mercenaries who don't share his ambitions or ideals.
