On his deathbed, Alfred Greitsteel had died at sixty, and his crown has fallen to his eldest son, Andrew Greitsteel. As he had not only put honour and pride to the mantle, He was intelligent man and a Mechanic unlike his predecessor. He helped create the use of the families engines and steam powered weapons, Often using his Pneumatic Battering ram To break through enemy sieges as well well as penetrate enemy armour and artillery during invasions. This man was given the title, Baffling Bastion, as the weapon he used in combat was quite unusual. Some say that it was more Baffling that he worked so well Using it, he was married to a human named catherine and had three children.

Feeling it was his time to step down for his successor, Andrew had given the crown to his daughter as he believed his sons were too young to take up the mantle.Living his five final years to untill sickness and death, Queen Beatrice Greitsteel had also learned how to maintain peace with other monarchies and create vassals for the Greitsteel family. Ever since then, most engagements and conversations with others had lasted peacefully. She herself as resolved more conflicts than the entire monarchy combined, giving her the title of Benevolent Bastion. As a reminder of her kindness towards others. She now has five children with a brave knight named charles. She is currently living in a Manor as she is the only monarch to stand down, and still live to this day.

Satisfied with her doings, she gave the crown once again to her eldest son Fredrick. He helped carry on the legacy of the guardian, as he not only put the family to work by heavily training them and getting them to help others further and to encouraging others to often use electric-powered weapons and such. He has sent many of his sons and daughters to help. Often helping kingdoms fight off invading nations and terrorists, as well as fighting heavily and destructively against his enemies even Blowing up others with his very own cannon without mercy, as his title as Brutish Bastion further proves this. Fredrick and his siblings have sent a few of the Greitsteel family, especially in cellvich due to the recent attacks. Your job is currently to improve the livelyhood of others as well as uphold honour to the family name.
