- Ven. XXII The Capture of Togoreth Stronghold
After driving the imperial army out of the area around Akademeia, the dominion legions aimed to reclaim more of their lost territory. Their sights on the eponymous stronghold of the Togoreth Region, Dominion Central Command initiated Operation Mythril Axe. Predicting the dominion would attempt to seize the stronghold, the empire established a line of defense to intercept the invasion. Nevertheless, Rubrum's momentum gave them the advantage, and they gradually pushed Milites back until the focus of battle shifted to retaking the fortress itself.
Togoreth Stronghold originally belonged to the dominion, but imperial engineers completely rewired its defense system, preventing the dominion legions from entering the facility. Determined to reclaim the stronghold at all costs, the commandant dispatched the dominion's remaining reserve units--including a cadet task force--to Togoreth, and the legions succeeded in taking back the base.
Mere moments after the stronghold fell, however, the White Tiger l'Cie Nimbus arrived at Togoreth. The Vermilion Bird l'Cie Lord Zhuyu intercepted Nimbus and a frenzied duel broke out, effectively ending the battle between the conventional forces just as the dominion gained the upper hand. The clash between the two l'Cie obliterated everything in the surrounding area, including the stronghold itself. Although the demigods' intervention brought the battle to an abrupt halt, the dominion still seized control of North Togoreth, and--seeing as the imperial army had incurred greater casualties--victory went to the dominion.
