—Vasto in Chapter 7
Vasto (オーリオ Ōrio, Ōlio in the Japanese version) is an high ranking Commander in Gangrel Plegian Army. He and his men attack Chrom and his forces as they are trying to flee the capital. He eventually falls in battle to Chroms's forces.
During the Ylissean-Plegian war, Emmeryn was being sent to a remote palace to ensure her safety, accompanied by the Shepherds and her longtime friend the Hierarch. The Hierarch secretly betrayed Emmeryn for his own apparent safety, so Gangrel and Vasto and his men wait at the Breakneck Pass. Vasto was extremely excited with the mission, as it was his first major posting.
The Hierarch immediately ran away from the Ylissean group and into Vasto's men. Having informed the Plegians of their arrival, he asked for protection. Vasto was disgusted by the Hierarch's cowardice, and had him executed on the spot before attacking the Ylissean convoy. He is slain in the ensuing battle.
In spite of this, Vasto is revealed to possess a softer side; according to a conversation shared between Henry and Ricken, where he would crack jokes and talk proudly about his mother, making Henry take a liking towards him.
