General Glauca is an antagonist in Final Fantasy XV and its associated media, serving as the main villain of the film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. He is the supreme commander of Niflheim's military, leading the Empire's Magitek Infantry into battle. He is also responsible for the death of Luna's and Ravus' mother, Sylva Nox Fleuret.
Glauca is an intimidating man cloaked in detailed grey armor with purple-magenta highlights.
Glauca is a murderous man, having killed many characters in Final Fantasy XV and Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV and being somewhat responsible for making Tenebrae an imperial territory by killing its ruling queen. Whilst he is the Supreme Commander of the Niflheim Army, Glauca prefers to fight in the battlefield with his troops. Glauca also seems to have no major distinction between friend or foe, as he was willing to kill Ravus Nox Fleuret as he tried to wield the Ring of the Lucii. As noted by Nyx Ulric during the later stages of the invasion of Insomnia, Glauca seems to linger in the past, since Glauca mentioned that he had lost his home to a Niflheim invasion years ago and does not care who he fights for. However, he does not seem to brood about it like many other villains in past titles.
General Glauca is an immensely powerful foe and whilst his armor appears to be heavy, he moves extremely fast thanks to his fast reflexes and jet boots on his armor's legs, which surprises even the most cautious and calm of opponents. It also allows him to land on places metres below him by slowing his descent and jumping great distances, minimizing or even nullifying damage he would have otherwise taken from landing after such a fall. In addition to incredible strength, he is also a master swordsman, being able to down multiple opponents with one swing, killing Clarus Amicitia by throwing his own sword into his back after flinging him at a wall, and even upending a car that had run him down.
One of General Glauca's primary strengths is his amazing endurance. He survived King Regis' attacks whilst Niflheim was invading Tenebrae (albeit being defeated immediately after), and later withstood the attacks of Regis and the Lucian Council, several of Regis' lightning attacks, and Libertus Ostium running him over with a car at full speed, the latter an experience that he appeared to be unarmored for a portion of time. Even Nyx Ulric's magic attacks and heightened abilities granted by the Ring of the Lucii, direct attacks by the Old Wall, several explosions from the weapons of daemons and airships, collapsing buildings, falls from great heights and a final stab wound to the chest only did enough to make him collapse by the end of the Invasion of Insomnia and slightly damaged his helmet. His armor also seems to have some sort of regenerative ability.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XVEdit
Glauca abducts Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, the princess of Tenebrae, during a party celebrating the signing of a peace treaty between Niflheim and Lucis. This act is discovered by Nyx Ulric, who successfully rescues Luna and later finds Glauca fighting King Regis and Clarus Amicitia. Glauca kills Amicitia and cuts the Ring of the Lucii from King Regis's hand. He then pursues the Lucian monarch, who flees with Nyx and Luna.
Catching up to King Regis, Glauca murders him and continues after Nyx and Luna. His true identity is revealed to be the Commander of the Kingsglaive, Titus Drautos, through the intervention of Libertus Ostium, and he proceeds to battle Nyx while Libertus flees from Lucis with Luna. Glauca is severely wounded when Nyx stabs him in the chest.
