"I will fight for the royal family, to maintain my dignity and my honor."
— General Hikash

Hikash Vinzalf, also known as General Hikash, is the father of Rauny in Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen. He is a general of the Empire and leads the imperial army from Hyland.



The noble Vinzalf family has been loyally serving the royal family of Hyland for generations. Loved and respected by the both the people and nobility alike, Hikash was a Highlander, the highest rank of knight in Hyland. When the Empire was formed, he was placed in command of the entire imperial army, above even the four Devas.

Changes in the EmpressEdit

As other knights betrayed Empress Endora because of her deepening madness, Hikash stood firm. He was not ignorant of the fact that Sage Rashidi had been tempting and deceiving Endora from the start of the war, but chose to defend her and the royal family to uphold his ideal of honor and dignity. Hikash chose duty even above the wishes of his own rebellious daughter Rauny, when he gave her hand to Duke Apros.

Honor of the HighlandsEdit

When the rebels came to Hyland to liberate the cities from the Empire they found the citizens unwelcoming and hostile. This was in part because of the propaganda of the Empress but was more to do with the people's love of General Hikash, who defended them until he was killed by his own daughter in the city of Xandu. Hikash fought for the Vinzalf name and his own ideals, but in the end he admired the strength of his daughter's principles and made her promise him that she would put a stop to Endora.

Notes Edit

  • Hikash is fairly unique among boss characters in Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen in that he is a sympathetic character with a high Alignment who can be neither recruited nor reasoned with by the game's player, despite the Alignment, Charisma, or Reputation of the player's character. The only other character with any similarity is Porkyus.
