About[edit | edit source]
Jibul Makutomi is a high-ranking commander in the Leazas Black Corps.
During the events of Rance X, Jibul accompanied the rest of the Black Corps to combat the division of the Monster Army invading from Leazas' southern border. Alongside his associates Dodge Evans and Sakanaku Tenka, Jibul assisted in defending the western flank with a portion of the Leazas Blue Corps led by Lieutenant-General Kinkaid Brambla. Under the orders of General Barres Province, the group made several strategic retreats to gradually lead the Monster Army into the Ander Crimson Plains, where it faced heavy bombardment from the Tulip #2 Maresuke. While the strategy threw the Monster Army into a state of confusion and dealt a significant blow to its forces, it remained on the offensive due to the Great Monster General Joseph declaring any soldier that attempted to flee would be branded a traitor and executed, forcing the Leazas Army to abandon the area.
If Rance does not assist in liberating Leazas from the Monster Army, Jibul commands a division of the Leazas Army to confront the remainder of the monsters' forces in a decisive battle in Mathers Field. Despite being outnumbered by over 50,000 troops, the Leazas Army is able to maintain a stable defense by routinely rotating soldiers to and from the frontlines to prevent them from becoming exhausted. Eventually, Joseph is killed in a joint ambush orchestrated by General Ex Banquet, leaving the Monster Army without a leader and securing a victory for Leazas.
Non-canon warning: This section contains non-canonical information that is not considered part of the canonical timeline and should not be considered part of the overall storyline.
In the non-canonical Kichikuou Rance, Jibul joins the Leazas Rebel Army formed by Ex in opposition to Rance, the newly-crowned king of Leazas, alongside his colleagues Dodge and Sakanaku. Jibul commands a unit of 400 soldiers and aids in attacking Leazas Castle from the city of Wes with the units of Ex, Sakanaku, and Haurein Province. While he can be killed in battle, it is possible to spare his life by avoiding defeating Haurein, Pegasus Fort, and Melfeis Promenade in combat until retaking the Rebel Army's base in Oaks, as doing so will make it impossible for his unit to deploy alongside theirs during the rebellion's last stand. Jibul will not make any further appearances in the story if spared, suggesting that he either resumed his normal duties within the Black Corps after the rebellion's failure or was expelled from the army due to betraying his country.
Personality and Appearance[edit | edit source]
Jibul is a fairly young man with shoulder-length brown hair that has a distinct orange-colored cowlick at the forehead. Jibul's clothing consists of the standard uniform for a soldier of the Leazas Black Corps comprised of light black plate armor, a white tunic, and brown boots.
During his appearance in Rance X, Jibul lacks any of the distinguishing features he possesses in Kichikuou Rance and instead shares his portrait with all generic members of the Black Corps.
While very little is known about Jibul's personality, he appears to be a devoted and passionate patriot who is willing to turn his back on his allies in order to do what he believes is the right thing for his country, all the while proudly declaring his love for Leazas until his death.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Though almost nothing is known about Jibul's talents, he appears to be quite young for a person of his rank in the military, suggesting that he possesses a considerable amount of talent and potential when compared to most other soldiers. During the rebellion he leads an army of 400 soldiers, less than half the size of those commanded by his colleagues, implying that he may be the least skilled of the three as a military leader. Despite this, his unit also receives an attack bonus when engaged in offensive combat, indicating that he excels at leading charges against enemy forces.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Jibul is the only one of himself, Dodge, and Sakanaku who is ever explicitly referred to by another character, with Barres calling for his squad to fall back during Leazas' liberation event in Rance X.
