Story Edit

After the establishment of Falconia, Griffith and the Band of the Falcon engaged with the jötnar in a battle. Griffith is able to defeat their leader by piercing the jötunn in one of its eyes. Afterward, Griffith orders Sonia to telepathically send the image of the corpse across the battlefield in order to instill fear in the remaining jötnar forces. This is followed by a "cleanup operation" in which the Falcons slaughter the remaining jötnar.[1]

Notes Edit

  • Trolls can be seen fighting alongside jötnar when a group of jötnar battles the Band of the Falcon. The jötnar also use a captive hydra against the Falcons.[2]
