Sir Ankiseth Gallant, also known as Ankiseth the Steadfast, is a playable character in Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber. Ankiseth the Steadfast is a member of the Central Division as well as Magnus' father, Aeneas' grandfather, and Yumil's bodyguard.


Ankiseth Gallant was a member of the nobility renowned for his exploits as a knight in the Central Division. He commanded the force that put down a rebellion led by the Werewolf Biske La Varet, capturing Biske in the process. During his service he also befriended Hugo Miller and Asnabel Birall.

While serving as Prince Yumil's bodyguard, Ankiseth killed a nobleman attempting to murder Yumil, thwarting the king's plot to assassinate his son. Because he was aware King Procus orchestrated the attack, Ankiseth chose to remain silent and refused to justify his slaying the nobleman. He was granted amnesty for his crime at Yumil's request, but his actions earned him the epithet "Ankiseth the Murderer" among the general public. Ankiseth's acceptance of the branding caused a rift between him and his son Magnus, who had witnessed the attempted assassination. Magnus came to despise his father, which contributed to the boy's decision to enroll at Ischka Military Academy.

Palatinean Revolutionary War[]

Following the Palatinean Revolutionary Army's conquest of the Southern Region, Prince Yumil was appointed General of the Western Division and ordered to march against the rebels. Ankiseth followed the prince to Wentinus, where he continued to serve as the Yumil's bodyguard. Because of Ankiseth's distinguished military career, Yumil relied on him heavily both on and off the battlefield.

As the Western Division prepared for battle, Yumil was approached by the Central Division knight Eurynome Rhade. Rhade offered to reinforce the Western Division with Bolmaukan soldiers provided by the Holy Lodissian Empire, but Ankiseth declined, not wishing for the army to be indepted to Lodis. Despite Ankiseth's refusal, Sir Rhade marched on Alba with the Bolmaukan troops. Ankiseth meanwhile traveled to the Highland of Soathon to take command of the Western Division forces.

After defeating Rhade's forces in Mylesia, the Blue Knights their advance into Soathon. There they engaged the Western Division troops, who had already integrated the Bolmaukan forces into their army at Rhade's command. Ankiseth was outraged to learn that Rhade had undermined him, but could not change the order in the middle of battle. He fought the Blue Knights at Castle Ziggiveld, where he met his son face to face. Ankiseth was forced to withdraw his troops, but took the opportunity to confront Magnus, questioning whether Magnus understood what his decision to join the revolution would mean for Palatinus and for his friendship to Yumil.
