The McDohl family has been in the service of the Scarlet
Moon Empire (currently the Toran Republic) since the War of Succession.
Teo McDohl (IS 415-456)
One of the Six Great Generals of the Scarlet Moon
Empire. He served under Barbarossa since the Succession War. During the
Succession War, he had a duel with Pahn and defeated him. Since then, Pahn
has worked under him. Teo was often sent to the Northern borders with
Jowstone to keep watch over the Jowstone forces, and thus was rarely home
in Gregminster. His wife died soon after giving birth to Tir McDohl, and
his long-time servant, Gremio, has been taking care of his son ever since.
Teo is powerful and competent, both as a swordsman and a general. He is
often referred to as "The General who never loses." He leads the armored
calvary, which is virtually unstoppable. In battle, he commands two
Lieutenant Generals: Alen the "Fire General" and Grenseal the "Thunder
General." Their loyalty towards Teo is without question. Teo's former
subordinate, Ain Gide, is good friend of his and is also the captain of
the Capital Defense Force. Shortly before the Gate Rune Wars, Teo was
given a sword called "Prakk" from Emperor Barbarossa.
During the Gate Rune Wars, Teo was initially ordered to keep defending
the northern borders. However, he was ordered to destroy Rokkaku and then
attack the Liberation Army. He lead his Armored Cavalry towards Toran
Castle, easily defeating the Liberation Army. However, in their final
attack, the Liberation Army used "Fire Spears" and completely annihiliated
Teo's Armored Cavalry. After the defeat, he challenged Tir, the leader of
the resistance, to a duel. He lost. In death, he was content that his son
had surpassed his own skill.
Tir McDohl (Hero) (IS 440--)
The son of Teo McDohl. For the purposes of this website,
he is known as Tir. He became the leader of the Toran Liberation Army
after the death of Odessa Silverberg. Growing up, his father was strict,
but Gremio (who took care of him while his father was away) gave him kind
guidance. He was taught the art of stick-fightning by Kai when he was
young, but when Kai suddenly left, he began training on his own.
When he was young, he was abducted by rogues. Fortunately, Gremio saved
him and he has been greatful ever since.
Upon raching adulthood, Tir was put into the Royal Guards with the
blessing of Emperor Barbarossa himself. However, he was put under the
cowardly Captain Kraze. Working under Kraze and with Vice-Captain Kanaan
showed McDohl the corrpution running rampant through the Empire.
When Windy, the court magician, discovers that Ted possesses the Soul
Eater, Tir accepted the Soul Eater from him so that he could hide it from
Windy. He escapes from Gregminster with the help of Viktor, who introduces
him to Odessa. He works with the Liberation Army, learning the hardships
of being a leader from Odessa. When she is killed, he escapes from the
Land of Arlus into the Gouran Area and finds Mathiu Silverberg, her
brother. There, he convinces Mathiu to join the Liberation Army and soon
frees Toran Castle from the zombie dragon's curse. He was thrust into the
leadership of the Liberation Army when Mathiu recognized his ability to
Since then, he participated in many battles, losing Gremio, Ted, and
Teo (who he killed himself), all because of the curse of the Soul Eater.
He was able to bring Gremio back with the power of the 108 Stars of
Destiny, but all of the losses have deeply affected him. When the war was
over, he was supposed to become the first President of the Toran Republic.
However, he left Toran with Gremio, putting Lepant in charge.
Gremio (IS 431--)
A soldier in the Scarlet Moon Army during the Succession
Wars, he fought under General Teo. After the war, he became a servant in
Teo's household, and eventually became a permanent baby-sitter for Tir.
When Tir was still young, he was kidnapped by rogues. Gremio rushed into
their hideout and kill them all with his axe, rescuing Tir. He received
the scar on his left cheek during that battle. Since then, he has etched
the words "I will protect my Master" on his axe.
During the Gate Rune Wars, Gremio acted as Tir's bodyguard and
confidant. He accompanied Tir in almost every action the Liberation Army
executed. During the operation to rescue Doctor Liukan from Soniere
Prison, the squad was trapped in a sealed chamber where General Milich
Oppenheimer released his flesh-eating Spores of Agony. Gremio opened the
door, allowing everyone else to escape while he stayed behind to keep the
door closed, condemning himself to a slow and painful death.
Once the 108 Stars of Destiny were gathered together, however, he was
brought back to life through their power and the Gate Rune. After the war,
he left Toran with Tir and has been travelling with him ever since.
Ted (IS 140-456)
The owner of the Soul Eater, True Rune of Life and
Death, for over 300 years. He was born in the "Village of the Hidden
Rune." The village was destroyed by Windy, Yuber, and Neclord. Ted was
given the Soul Eater and wound up as the only survivor. Since then, he has
wandered the world alone.
During his travels, the Soul Eater was removed once, but after ten
years of searching, he reclaimed it.
While the Scarlet Moon Empire was at war with Jowstone, General Teo
found him wandering a battlefield. Thinking that he was a war orphan, Teo
brought him home. Ted soon became good friends with Tir. He had never had
a friend in 300 years of wandering, so this was a great comfort. He hid
the Soul Eater from the McDohl family by wearing gloves at all times. He
explained that his hand was badly burned during the war to escape
suspicion. However, when McDohl was sent to defeat the bandits at Mt.
Seifu, Ted used the Soul Eater to defeat the Queen Ant. Seeing this,
Kanaan informed Windy. Windy summoned Ted to the palace, and there he
realized that she was the one who had destroyed his village. He barely
escapes the palace, getting severely injured in the process. He gets to
the McDohl household and asks Tir to accept the Soul Eater. Tir agrees,
allowing Ted to set himself up as a decoy while Tir escapes with the Soul
After being captured, Windy takes control of his body using the
conquerer rune. She tried to use him to take the Soul Eater back from Tir,
but with his last bit of strength, Ted commanded the Soul Eater to take
his own life.
Cleo (IS 430--)
A soldier under the command of General Teo since the
Succession Wars. She is highly experienced and never loses her temper in
battle. She served under Teo for so long that she became a permanant
member of the McDohl household. To Tir, she is like an older sister, and
she protects him under all circumstances. She has a talent in magic use,
and when McDohl was sent to Magician's Island, Leknaat gave her a fire
rune, because she saw that Cleo was a true "protector" of Tir. Since then,
she has accompanied Tir on many battles. Although she saw her comrades die
in battle, she never shed a tear.
After the war, Cleo retired from military duty and maintains the McDohl
household while their various occupants are gone.
Pahn (IS 429--)
A soldier under Geil Rugner during the Succession Wars.
He confronted General Teo on the battlefield in a duel, but lost.
Afterwards, he swore fealty to Teo and became a member of the McDohl
Pahn is a very muscular man, constantly in training. He is a "boar
warrior," and overpowers his enemies with brute force. He owns a Boar
rune, which allows him to unleash a barraige of powerful strikes.
During the Gate Rune Wars, Pahn was the one who informed Kraze that Ted
had returned to the McDohl household after escaping from the palace. Pahn
didn't want to bring trouble into the McDohl household and his actions
were due to his loyalty to Teo McDohl. However, this action betrayed Tir.
Later, Kraze abducts Eileen with Pahn following behind. Kraze orders Pahn
to attack Tir, but Pahn realizes his error and instead attacks Kraze.
Afterwards, he became a part of the Liberation Army.
When the Liberation Army is defeated by Teo's Armored Cavalry, Pahn
stays behind to stop Teo's troops. Teo orders Pahn to stand aside, but
instead, Pahn challenges him to a duel. Pahn barely wins, allowing the
Liberation Army enough time to prepare the Fire Spears that would later
defeat General Teo.
After the war, Pahn goes on a journey to better himself. He returns to
Gregminster a few years later when he runs out of money. He remains an
Kai (IS 408--)
Only a member of the McDohl household for a few years. He
was commissioned by Teo to be Tir's martial arts instructor. He taught Tir
how to use the staff as a weapon, and realized his incredible potential.
However, after a few years, he suddenly disappeared. After that, McDohl
had to continue his training on his own.
Kai suddenly appears again during the Gate Rune Wars. Tir meets him at
th Fortress of Garan, and Kai joins with no qualms about the fact that Tir
is fighting against the empire. After the war, Kai becomes one of the Six
Great Generals of the Toran Republic. He is not assigned to a specific
area, but rather to training troops at Gregminster.
