Forgotten Wing Company

From The Wandering Inn Wiki

The Forgotten Wing Company is a mercenary group and one of The Four Great Companies of Baleros. It is led by Foliana the Three-Color Stalker, with Niers Astoragon as its second-in-command and main [Strategist].

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Forgotten Wing Company rose from the ashes of Niers and Foliana's original adventuring team, World's Founding, emerged from the Labyrinth of Souls,[1] and stole the mantle of Great Company from Jungle Tails. They are a multi-species company, without any one species being predominantly represented. While they lack long-term contracts, but they are considered a rising force.[2] However, they are considered more fragile than the other Great Companies, as most of their power is tied up with Niers and Foliana.

His company, not including Niers himself, has at the very least fifteen [Strategists] and [Tacticians] and countless others. Their headquarter is situated in the city of Elvallian, which is also famed for being the home of the Titan's academy for [Strategists] and [Generals].

Their flag banner consist of a stylized flowing wing comprised of three colors; Pink, yellow, and green, the same colors as the eyes of their leader.[3]

Military Strength[edit | edit source]

Under Niers' command, the company could outmaneuver any foe, defeat any force, even those three times as large as them. With Niers' Skills, they could turn their soldiers into horrific monsters, yet if they needed to retreat, the army would become ghosts on the battlefield. While Niers leads the armies, their commander takes down the enemy officers. According to Orthenon, the group is able to overwhelm Flos' weakened kingdom.

They employ the second most Selphids behind the Eyes of Baleros Great Company,[4] even more than the Selphid-only Bodies of Fellden by dint of size. These Selphids make up their vanguard thanks to their resilience, their ability to Rampage, and their ability to keep fighting by taking the bodies of fallen foes when theirs got too damaged. They're also useful for training exercises, and Niers found they were the most inclined to keep working as [Mercenaries] longer rather than retire. In the wake of the manufacture of Healing Potions being halted when Eir gel disappeared, this became an even greater advantage.[5]

Chess Towers by Enuryn
(commissioned by Pirateaba)

The company uses a unique fortification and siege weapon called Chesstowers. They are short and wide towers made of stone, wood and other light materials made lighter with magic, and are enchanted against fire, catapults and arrows. They have superior crenelations, murder holes, enchantments to set themselves ablaze along with anyone trying to climb them, and anti-siege engine spells. Their most notable feature is that they're light enough to be lifted and redeployed, making them mobile fortifications. There are currently twenty-seven made, some of which have been commissioned to look like rooks, bishops, and other chess pieces.[6]

The company employs [Necromancers]. As an advanced Company, they have as many as eight [Rogues] in their group compositions.[7]

They have a sub-Company of 2000 Centaurs under Perorn Sadiluc called Fleethoof's Gale. All members are over level 20.[8] General Diomedes' vanguard is comprised of Dullahans armored in mithril.[1]

One of the company's notable combat groups are the Marshwalkers, a force comprised mostly of Lizardfolk and no Nagas. Unlike most Lizardfolk forces, they march in silent formation like Drakes, and are experts at killing Nagas.[6]

Among its resources, they have access to even Tier 7 spell scrolls.[9]

Former Strength[edit | edit source]

The Rustängmarder was under contract with the Forgotten Wing Company. This gives them one company of soldiers with unbreakable morale and lets them field undead like Draugr. The contract has recently expired.[9][10]
