Trasone was an Algarvian soldier during the Derlavaian War. Along with his comrade in arms Tealdo, Trasone participated in the annexation of Bari[1], the invasions of Sibiu[2], Valmiera[3] and Jelgava[4], and was then sent to Unkerlant.[5] He survived the next year, until he was killed at Sulingen.[6]

A member of an army which committed terrible atrocities, Trasone was not personally party to them. He was a seasoned combat veteran, daily fighting the Unkerlanters and developed a grudging respect for them. He took part in the Battle of Sulingen and was part of the Algarvian forces which were cut off and were stuck in an increasingly desperate situation. In his final moments he and his superior and friend, Sergeant Panfilo, bravely and stoically faced the certainty of their approaching doom, and recalled Tealdo who was killed a year before. Soon afterwards, the Unkerlanters launched their final assault and Trasone was killed by an exploding egg.
