Gascon voice line

Gascon, also known as the Duke of Dogs, was the leader of the Strays of Spalla, a group of bandits in Lyria and Rivia during the Second Northern War.


Gascon was a member of the noble family of the Brossards. When he was eight, in 1258 his family revolted agains King Reginald, who defeated them and decimated the whole family. Only Gascon managed to survive.

Without home nor title, Gascon joined the gang of the Strays of Spalla, later becoming their leader.

Later in 1267, Gascon and his gang were used by Count Caldwell to overthrow Queen Meve from the royal throne of Lyria: while the Strays were pillaging the whole country and Meve was trying to track them down, Caldwell started to treat in order to surrender the country to Nilfgaardian General Ardal aep Dahy.

In the end, after they killed Lord Clayton at his residence, the Strays and Gascon were defeated and arrested by Meve. Unfortunately, once she returned to the capital, Caldwell started a golpe and arrested the queen.

Right when she was about to be killed by Caldwell's henchmen, Meve was freed by Gascon, who was freed by his gang just before and that realized that he was used by Caldwell.

Together with Gascon, Reynard Odo, the Strays of Spalla and the few soldiers who remained loyal to her, Meve fled from her kingdom and headed towards Aedirn, in order to ask King Demavend III to help her receuiting a new army to pull out the invaders and traitors from her occupied country.
