Anima - Into the Shadows
The Azur Alliance
The Azur Alliance the name given to the alliance of Togarini, Remo and Bellefonte. They chose, like a large number of nations, to separate from the Empire of Abel after the death of the Emperor Elias. However, theirs goals differ, in that the Azur Alliance wants to assume leadership of the empire. The leadership hates Empress Elsebetta and wants to see all vestiges of the old Abel Empire eradicated. They wish to see the scared empire reborn with the Alliance at its core.
Matthew Gaul, former Lord of War of the South, has taken control of Torarini and the Alliance. He views Abel as impotent and weak. His meteoric rise to power is due to his military cunning, his ruthlessness, and the aid of his Arbiters and secret police, Las Jager. Declaring the Alliance the spiritual heirs to Abel he martials them for a war of conquest.
