Trivia Edit

  • Lusitania seems to be based off Outremer (Crusader) forces of the High Middle Ages in appearance, names and gear, though mainly based in character to the Islamic Arab Caliphate. Taking Japanese grammar and pronunciation in mind, the name is remarkably similar to "Rashidun", the name of the first Caliphate, which conquered and converted all of the Arabian peninsula, afterwards invading the Zoroastrian Persian Empire, bringing its last non-Muslim native dynasty, the Sasanians, to an end in 651 CE, almost dispensing the same fate to the Christian Byzantine, or Eastern Roman, Empire; which was almost completely overrun and lost roughly two thirds of its territory, to never again recover it completely. From this era onward, Islam would slowly become the dominant religion in most of the Near East, specially by supressing Zoroastrianism, the dominant religion in Persia and considered "heathen" by Islam. This long, harsh, and often overlooked period in history was not without heavy resistance from many fronts: From the aristrocracy of the old Persian Empire trying to restore the old monarchy, to the native Zoroastrian land owners and peasants, and even by native converts, dissatisfied with the Arab favoritism shown by their new overlords. This is a clear reflection of the Parsian resistance and war for the throne, centerfold plot in the franchise and all of its different media portrayals.
  • Lusitania is also an ancient Roman province in Western Iberia, roughly corresponding to modern Portugal and Western Spain, and named after the Lusitani, a warlike Celto-Iberian tribe native of that region, who fought the Roman invasions and resisted their conquest for most of the 2nd century BCE.
  • According to the author's statement, the idea of Lusitanian army was inspired by the Crusaders and Spanish conquest of Inca Empire.[2]
