"I had thought that to stop fighting the Empire was the best thing for my land. However, I now see that a false peace is not a peace at all. It's just a lie..."
— Gilbald O'Brien

Gilbald O'Brien, also known as the Skygazer, is the governor of the Charlom District in Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen, a recruitable character in Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber, and a non-playable character in Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together. He was the best friend of Canopus Wolph and is romantically involved with Iuria Wolph.


Ogre Battle: The March of the Black QueenEdit

Early LifeEdit

Gilbald was childhood friends with Canopus and at some point saved Canopus' life.

For The PeopleEdit

Later he became the governor of Charlom which ran autonomously from the Xenobian Kingdom but had good relations with the Xenobian Royal Family. During the great war between Xenobia and the Empire, Gilbald surrendered unconditionally for the sake of his people. In return for his diplomacy, the Empire enforced heavy taxes and a conscription.

Shattered BondsEdit

The decision to surrender destroyed the deep friendship that he had with Canopus, who had fought bitterly against the Empire. The people of Charlom saw a quick change in their governor's personality after Gilbald had surrendered. Gilbald had gone from a kindhearted man to one cold as ice and many from then on referred to him as the dog of the Empire.

The Favor ReturnedEdit

Gilbald let the rebels know that he held the same ideals, but he was determined to keep the peace of Charlom. The governor was defeated and at the mercy of Destin, but Canopus interceded and pleaded on Gilbald's behalf. Destin saw the wisdom in the winged's words and let Gilbald join the rebellion.


During the celebration at Xenobia Castle after defeating the Empire, Gilbald bid farewell to his friend Canopus and left the castle before Iuria could speak to him. He traveled north with Destin, Aisha, Debonair and Saradin to stop the invasion of the Holy Lodissian Empire.
