Vangarre, is a character from the critically acclaimed RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles. Vangarre is a member of the Colony 9 Defense Force, and is responsible for the safety and security of the entire colony. He is a violent and aggressive commanding officer, however he deeply cares for the safety of his people. His brutal training of the recruits, makes Shulk think that the soldiers will more likely be killed by him, than actual battle.
Twelve years prior to the events of Xenoblade Chronicles, Vangarre was the newly appointed colonel of Colony 9 when the Mechon launched a powerful assault against the colony. Rather than fight against the enemy, Vangarre led the civilians to safe houses where the Mechon could not reach them. One of his new recruits Dunban, and his sister Fiora failed to make their way to the safe house, and Vangarre spent the next week silently hoping for their survival. When Dunban and Fiora returned, Vangarre gave him a horrible talking to, however he was in fact glad that Dunban and Fiora were safe.
Twelve years later, Colony 9 was attacked by the Mechon once again, this time however they were being led by the power mobile suit known as Metal Face. As his men fled in panic, Vangarre grabbed a powerful machine gun and stared down Metal Face. He fired a powerful blast at the Mechon, however he was horrified to see that his gun did no damage. Metal Face smirked at the colonel, and crushed him with a mobile artillery. With the colony is disarray, Metal Face left the colony and returned to Galahad Fortress.
Vangarre just managed to escape death as he was rescued by his subordinates and rushed to the infirmary. Incapacitated, Vangarre left command of the army to his subordinate Lt. Colonel Kantz, and he made his recovery in the hospital.
