Story ImpactEdit

  • The meeting of three Vanadises in Silesia would foreshadow several events to come in the latter arc.
    • Fine becomes interested towards Tigre via Valentina's accounts, especially his friendly relationship with other Vanadises specifically Elen who was involved in his wars in Brune. That alone driven Fine's desire to meet up with her old apprentice again and the young Earl (Tigre).

  • An unnamed legend is briefly mentioned where, according to one lore about him before the series' beginning, he was well regarded as a hero by three kingdoms (Asvarre, Brune and Zhcted) in the continent for his heroic deeds in repelling pirate threats, as his role as a peacemaker to these three kingdoms. While he is last seen in his 60's and set sail to an unknown destination, anything about him besides his legendary reputation remained ambiguous.
  • Brune Army's narrow victory against Muozinel Army-who then had to retreat after hearing a sudden news of their kings's (Kureys' brother) passing-bring several significant events that foretell the next event to come the next event in the later arcs.

      • This will also foreshadow both of each respective position either they become Head Monarch to fight against each other again or not.
      • Kureys is the first person to admit and recognizes Tigre as one of Brune's Mightiest Hero via his remarks, indicating his value toward Tigre not only just as his worthy rival but also Brune's one of few valor warriors.
    • The subjugated provinces of Southern Brune (including Nemetacum) are liberated and return to Brune after the invaders' retreat, but they aren't leaving Brune empty handed as they still taking Nemetacum's pillaged properties and captured slaves from the same place back to Muozinel.

    • Damad was captured and treated as prisoner-of war under Tigre. This further foretelling their friendship since Tigre once owes Damad's help during his amnesia his amnesia on Lebus.
  • Sofy's bolder movement in hugging Tigre in front to the girls further boils their (romance) rivalry for Tigre's affection. Her action foreshadows even further the Vanadis movements to get Tigre's affection towards them.

    • This will also further foreshadow Fine's relationship with Tigre once she finds out the truth about Elen with Tigre once she met him in person.

TriviaEdit

  • Unlike Muozinel Invasion Arc where Silver Meteor Army faced huge disadvantages in number of troops (2,000 + 4,000 from Olmutz post battle against Advance Party) against Muozinel's advance force (20,000 troops) led by Kashim and main army (30,000 troops + 10,000 surviving the war against Silver Meteor Army) led by Kureys, and were also heavily fatigued due to battling continuously after battling Advance Force multiple times without knowing there are main force back then, this time Tigre was able to release the full potential of Moonlight Knights.
    • This is also where not only 1 but 3 Vanadises will participate in the battle against Muozinel Army.
  • This is Elen's first battle against Muozinel Army.
  • This arc is considered as a a rematch clause between Tigre and Kureys despite Kureys doesn't have information about him until their encounter on Battle of Ormea.
  • Regin's decree the Moonlight Knights turns to a Brune Army but the official name was remain Moonlight Knights due to the Army was remain a Coalition Army between Brune and Zhcted.
    • The reason Regin decree it was because all Brune Army are being placed under Tigre's command despite that Damad and Kureys are still looking at the Army as a Moonlight Knights.
