Aftermath

  • Haphae keep northern Kyloto, making it part of Haphae itself.
  • Following Keimusho's death, the combined Venlish and Haphaen forces liberate Asteria from Kyloto's control, and relinquish Kyloto's territory over what would later become Kratonia.
  • The Asterians carry out a revenge attack on Kyloto, crippling its forces further, taking out its temporary leadership, comprised of Inferuno Tatsumaki, Dorizeru Agobiar and Yoru Silva, in the process. Several thousand Kyloteans are enslaved by Asteria as retribution. 
  • Haphae set up Ranzhou in order to keep their newly controlled lands under control, and to keep the Kyloteans out. The Kylotean inhabitants are either starved, evicted or sold to Asteria. As a direct result of Ranzhou's placement, the grasslands remain part of Haphae still to this day.
  • Senkyoshi Gikoku would later take over as Overlord of Kyloto, and builds the Regency of Kyloto. After building his forces, Senkyoshi later begins the Payback War.
