The Northern Horde is one of the four demon hordes in the Grand Duchy of Yamato. The leader of the horde is Duke Malphas d'Xuvadon, Lord of the Duchy of Northern Yamato. The demons of the horde are known to be very bloodthirsty, and they enjoy battles and want to grow stronger so that they can face more powerful opponents. The horde also utilizes quite a few "lesser beings" such as dwarves, elves and humans as slaves, although some skilled individuals can reach higher ranks within the horde after they have proven themselves in battle.
Armor and emblemsEdit
The soldiers of the Northern Horde wear predominately red armor. This signifies their bloodlust as well as their experience in fighting amidst the blood of their enemies.
The overall flag of both the Northern Horde and Clan d'Xuvadon is a dark star on a field of red. There are also some banners for certain commanders such as a dark claw on a field of red for Dreadlord Leraje Thanadar and Ronove Thanadar and a red head of a wolf on a field of black for Tribune Distreyd Thanadar XIII.

Strategos Flavius Severus is also known as the Besieger and for a good reason. Not only is he a brilliant general, but he is also an architect and engineer and knows how to build deadly war machines. He has become an expert on sieges after years of servitude within the ranks of the Northern Horde. He has been seen using catapults and ballistae among other things against his opponents, but his most dreadful creation yet is a giant siege tower named Helepolis, the Taker of Cities, which he used in the siege of Vanna with great results.
