Well, the problem here is that in VC2, it doesn't really involve the Empire... Its Gallia dealing with an internal rebellion.

Now, if the Empire doesn't take this chance to advance their agenda, we can also safely say that they don't know politics.

I just noticed "Gaul" was on the Gallian Army's Top Secret Report in episode 17.

Except that the Devil May Cry press release/wikipedia page copypasta demonstrates that there's nothing of value to be found on documents within the anime.

Except if you know what the reference Gaul is implying, you wouldn't be saying this.

So, it seems that with VC2's release, the "Happily Ever After" epilouge of the game is yet to take effect. I now put VC1's epilouge sometime after 1940-41, assuming the child Alicia's having (not spoiling her name) is born 1937-38.

Also, a look into their guns from EWI, assuming the Lansel guns are retrofits (the M-Series being after the Magses depicted in VC2, of course). EWI itself... eh...

Did it ever say how long the 1st Euporan war lasted for and how long of a period was between both wars, I think it was 20 years between EW1 and EW2.

Kind of facts I need for a fanfic of mine and general knowledge. Can't look it up on my PS3 cuz it's gone for the time being

Yes. It was stated as at least 20 years between the end of EWI and the start of EWII. I'd say it ended in 1915 at the latest - incidentally, when World War I was starting to kinda pick up for us.

Well it seems that VC2's given the indication of a country named Dryer, not sure on where it is.

From Nahum's skin tone, I'd say it was in the middle-east. From his voice... I'd say they speak British English. Granted, though Freesia York was pretty dark-toned.

It could also be entirely made up. Dryer is his surname as well.

To be fair, many monarchs in the Middle East, particularly countries friendly with the UK, sent their heirs there to study, many at Sandhurst - for instance Jordan's King Abdullah, who speaks British English and trained as an Army officer at Sandhurst (the British Army's equivalent of Lanseal).

On the other hand, as Red has pointed out, Dryer being his surname doesn't mean the country is called Dryer; as an example the British Royal Family is known as the House of Tudor, William and Harry use the surname Wales while serving as RAF & Army officers...

As my Royal Navy source told me, the Naval College at Dartmouth had students from all over the world, despite being predominantly British. Heck he could be from this place's version of Israel - Nahum is a Hebrew name, and isn't very commonly used in English (as opposed to "Sarah", which means princess, and is the most common Hebrew Female Name in English).

This is the part where I'd go on a rambling lecture on how English has loanwords from various sources, etc etc, and that many names come from all over the place or are corruptions of their original languages (e.g. Welsh-origin surnames Bowen and Pritchard are corruptions of Ap Owen and Ap Richard)... so I'll just skip the lecture with a Top Gear Style Fade to black...

Some time later...

Regards Gallia, I think Max wanted to capture the country quickly for several reasons:

Spoiler for Be advised, contains ENDGAME SPOILERS:


I want to point out, however, that the Imperials may have singed a non-agression treaty/peace treaty/what have you for a keen reason - they can't be bothered to fight here. Consider the losses Maxmillian's forces sustained - the Imperials are not made of men, despite their Germanic-Soviet influences, and must use their troops where needed. If conquering Gallia results in them owning a country of ash, where all the mines have been sabotaged, then there's no point at all.

Note that immediately after D-Day, the allies made attempts to capture a number of key ports from the Germans. By the time the ports were captured, they'd been so badly damaged by the defenders that it took months to get them ready again. The Imperials may be wanting to avoid this situation.

I'm sure most of you guys know that Gallian geography is shaped like a unicorn if you look at it in a certain way.
