Gennon (ゲノン Genon?) was a high-ranking noble in Tudor. He was killed at the hands of Griffith when the Band of the Falcon defeated the castle's general.

Appearance Edit

Gennon was a short and obese man of old age. He was nearly completely bald, with long hair only on the back of his head, and an equally long beard and mustache. He usually wore noble outfits, but when it came to battle, he did not think twice to wear an armor and a battlefield outfit.

Personality Edit

Gennon had an infamous reputation as a pederast. Some evidence of this lied in the fact that virtually all of Gennon's servants were teenaged youths or younger. He would employ children from neighboring villages as 'attendants', nearly all of whom were boys. Gennon also seemed to have a borderline obsessive love for Griffith, almost idolizing him and wanting nothing more than to have another 'wonderful night with him'.

Abilities Edit

He was skilled with swordplay and had shown that he could move quickly when on horse back, as shown when he decapitated Boscogn's right hand man for attempting to kill Griffith.

Story Edit

Golden Age Arc Edit

Shortly after the time Griffith first began the Band of the Falcon, he found himself and his group in Gennon's employ. Motivated by a need to amass wealth to maintain the Band of the Falcon and reduce causalities, Griffith accepted Gennon's terms to spend the night with him. Unware that Griffith had ulterior motives, Gennon became obsessed with the youth.

Years later, after being made general governor of Doldrey, Gennon learns of the Band of Falcon's siege of the fortress and gives Boscogn instructions to bring Griffith to him alive to have him again. When the Battle of Doldrey goes underway, Gennon fears Boscogn might end up killing Griffith and decides to personally take command of his forces to ensure his prize.

Manga E28 Griffith Kills Gennon

Griffith stabs Gennon's eye.

Yet, Gennon ultimately loses Doldrey. His army, having lost their morale, flee while he is knocked off his horse. Gennon finds Griffith approaching him and has mixed feelings while believing that Griffith will spare him after their night together. But Griffith uses that moment to reveal his true motives for sleeping with the man and explaining that he never saw him as anything more than a stepping stone. As Gennon cries out in rage of being betrayed, he's killed by Griffith, who stabs him through the eye.
