He is the leader that carried out the Operation Ark, which brought Armored Division 3 and Strategic Mobile Army 7 from Brest Naval Base to Malgeria. Later in Malgeria, he established the "Free Republic", which declared themselves the true Republic government and continued the war against the Empire.
He led the Free Republican army and fought against Imperial Southern Continent Expeditionary Corps. However, he faced opposition from the passive, do-nothing colonial bureaucrats. He decided to replace the command structure of the colonial army and unify the command chain. With time, he turned the NCOs and lower-ranking commissioned officers on his side and won the loyalty of colonies staff officers. Successfully, he gathered troops to retake Turus and cut the inept generals from the chain of command. Later, their army tried to ambush and destroy Romel's troops, yet was achieved a breakout.
(Vice Minister of Defense de Lugo during the escape operation) : “If even one of us remains, the Republic can keep fighting. It may seem like a platitude, but all we need to do is be standing in the end. That's how war works.”
- His name was based to the former hero of France Charles de Gaulle.
