Charon Anquetil Greast, also known as Greast, is a tactician and a devoted follower of Maximilian Bennusa Ganelon and a minor antagonist of the series. He was also notoriously known for his bizarre and sadistic fascination upon Zhcted's Vanadis Elen, and one of Tigre's most dangerous rivals.
Greast appeared to have long hair and a gloomy face. He is also described in his late twenties. Though he had a childish face, his hair was carefully trimmed and had a hint of gray. He also seen wearing complex gold embroidered silk clothing which suited his status, as Ganelon's tactician. Greast is often seen smirking almost all the time, which masked his sinister and malevolent nature.
Being the strategist under Ganelon, Greast appeared to be a civil and polite person who prefers wits to solve any problems with ease. He is also seen as a laid-back and optimistic person, and often seen smiling almost to anyone in anywhere he goes.
However, his regal, cherish and friendly demeanor masks his more sinister and perverse side. As the cunning strategist, Greast would use rhetorical words to persuade his subjects. Due to his lust for women, Greats only listen to any women without realizing or caring about other peers. His perverseness was so repulsive that even Elen, Tigre and Hughes found him obnoxious. He is also tends to be sadistic and cruel, inventing various torture devices to torture and/or execute anyone who defied Ganelon.
Pre-Brune Civil WarEdit
After Zion's death in Molsheim Plains, Greast was ordered by Ganelon to attack Tigre and the Silver Meteor Army. Greast initially suggested to eliminate Tigre instead but Ganelon answered that with his affluent in wealth and influence, he could persuade even an honest man to his dirty bidding. Greast continued to ask Ganelon if Tigre readily to submit for him, to which Ganelon answered they could only deprive Alsace and should Tigre did became their ally, he can uses him to charge against Thenardier and earned all the credit for himself. This decision prompted Greast viewed Ganelon as a dangerous man to be feared, but he borrowed Ganelon's soldiers anyways.
Visit and War Against the Silver Meteor ArmyEdit
Greast arrived to the Orange Plains alone to meet the Silver Meteor Army and he was greeted with his courteously, while also reunited with Hughes Augre whom he thought had retired. Greast then met Elen with an eccentric interest and gave some her compliments which Elen found disturbing and unpleasant. Greast then presented his right hand as his courtesy, which Elen soon followed, he perversely holding her hand while eerily praised and admired her, while asking her about her alliance with Tigre. When Elen answered his questions, Greast claimed that their relationship was hardly a couple and asked her to join him instead. Even Hughes intervention didn't changed Greast's rudeness and instead gave an insincere apology to Elen, further disgusted by everyone, especially Silver Wind Vanadis who forcefully put her hand away from Greast.
In the camp, Greast sat down with the Silver Meteor Army's leaders and their discussion began with Greast mentioned about Zion's death in Tigre's hand and his offer his "invitation" to be Ganelon's ally. Tigre was initially suspicious and asked about the benefits if he joined Ganelon, Greast answered that not only Ganelon would reward Rance to the Silver Meteor Army, he also allow them to plunder the city. Despite everyone shock, Greast calmly claimed that it was normal for fallen cities to have destruction, atrocities and even chaos. He continued further that if the Silver Meteor Army under Ganelon's command, they could do anything they wish in Rance. Hearing Greast's explanation has prompted Tigre to imagine about Zion's atrocities upon Alsace if they do attack Rance. But when Elen asked what if Rance surrendered, Greast instead kindly tell Elen that it might out of subject, and even lied that Thenardier would never cared about Rance. He sudden began serious and told Tigre that Ganelon would also going to raze other cities and as his obligations under Ganelon, he will do his biding for him and if they defying against him, Ganelon wouldn't hesitating to kill him and his allies.
Even after suffering the defeat, Greast remained calm as he spoke indifferently to the commander, who simply bowed his head without any reply. Since they reached the riverside, Ganelon Army has reduced with 4,000 soldiers remained but Greast instead smiled while while mumbling sarcastically sentenced the commander to wear a Dancing Mask, one of his torture device to caused victim suffocate. Seeing the commander's pale reaction, Greast laughed as if it was a joke while urged him to retreat from the river. When commander suggested a night ambush, Greast immediately told the commander that if they insisted on retaliating, the army will be annihilated. Under Greast's suggestion, Ganelon Army crossed the river and retreat. At the same time, Greast would wonder how would Ganelon response to such defeat. Then, he also worried that if his army defeat was spread, Tigre's influence would grow stronger and even Ganelon's followers would eventually betray Ganelon. Before he leave the battlefield, he state that he will return and will capture Eleonora Viltaria.
Since the end of the Brune Civil War, Greast followed Ganelon's escape from Brune and secretly allied with another Vanadis from Zhcted, Valentina Glinka Estes, who offered them a temporary shelter. Six months after their hiding, both Ganelon and himself would return for Brune to wreak more havoc in Brune.
Role in Durandal's DisappearanceEdit
Some time after their return, Greast allied himself with House Thenardier's widow Melisande Thenardier (Regin's cousin) in her attempts to overthrow the new queen. In order to do so, Greast attempted to conspire with the local merchants, who were discontented towards Queen Regin's new founded reign, in an attempt to steal the Durandal and kill Regin. Although the young queen survived her assassination, Durandal was successfully stolen by the intruders and sent to Greast, who anticipating the impending chaos in Brune.
