|Affiliation(s)||Kingdom of Elphegort|
Eugen was a soldier of the Kingdom of Elphegort and the nephew of Yatski's village chief. After leaving the army due to a dispute, Eugen became part of a crew of bandits haunting the Millennium Tree Forest. He later reformed after his gang kidnapped a girl and became a henchman for his uncle.
Born in the village of Yatski in the Kingdom of Elphegort during the 5th century EC, Eugen entered into the Elphegortean army and later left over a dispute. Falling into a band of thieves around the EC 490s, the former soldier hid in the Millennium Tree Forest's abandoned home with his comrades for some time. In EC 492, the bandits captured Chartette Langley and held her at their hideout.
Eugen was later left to guard the prisoner while the others went out into the forest. During that time, the youthful girl convinced him to reform. When Chartette's friends, Allen and Germaine, approached the home, Eugen stepped out to stop them as they pulled out their swords on him. Once the situation was explained to the kids, Chartette left with her friends and Eugen returned home.
- "This here enough for the land fee?"
- ―Michaela and Eugen[src]
One day in EC 499, Eugen joined his uncle to collect Clarith's land fees from her home. After they arrived, he silently watched the chief demand Clarith pay her fees when a visitor spoke up from the nearby bed. When the Elphe outsider presented a pile of gold coins to them, Eugen was starstruck like everyone else. After Michaela asked if that was enough to pay the fee, he admitted it was plenty. Once the chief accepted the girl's offer to pay the land fee and told Eugen they were heading home, the hulking man walked over and grabbed the necessary payment from the bed before departing back home with his uncle.
Afterward, the two began collecting Clarith's fees from the new village resident, Michaela, and allowed her to stay. After six months had passed, Eugen discovered his uncle had been pocketing some of the money for himself rather than giving them all to Earl Felix. Confronting the chief, he threatened to expose his uncle's corruption unless he returned all the money he owed the Earl. Soon after, while eating a meal, Eugen was poisoned by the chief and died shortly after.
- "Eugen was murdered. My father's insisting Clarith killed him. He's taking the young men to try and arrest her. You need to hurry and escape!"
Personality and TraitsEdit
