Vince Sihanouk, later referred to as "Guerillo" after his extensive use of guerilla tactics in the Resistance before actively fighting, was a Great Knight who became the leader of the Great Knight Resistance against Chaos. Vince, after contemplating the differences of Chaos and the Great Knights, sought to reform the latter, betraying his friends, such as Samson and Delphius, whom he would later fight. After his failed attempt to kill or capture Medusa in a large scale assault on her castle, his rebellion began to crumble, ending with his death at the Battle of Vinharar, in which Vince deliberately made his last stand to allow his brother and the final remnants of the Great Knights to escape.
Vince Sihanouk was the son of a Great Knight named Vincarch. Raised in a family of six, Vince was the third eldest, but from an early age also the most charismatic - his two older brothers Vindor and Vinlus were both relatively quiet and studious. According to Great Knight noble tradition, which Vincarch rarely followed, Vince was sent away as a page at the age of seven to the castle of his second uncle Viktus and his father Vultukus, who, through marriage, was a distant relative of the Royal House of the Havik Kingdom, a neighbouring coastal realm that was allied with the Great Knights. However, the Kingdom was also currently in a large-scale civil war, following the incumbent King Andlond's failure to distribute the hereditary realms among his brothers equally. This led to his six other brothers fighting in a war known as the War of the Seven Brothers, which evolved into the more brutal War of the Five Princes. Due to Vultukus' alignment with Prince Nendor, the oldest of Andlond's younger siblings, their village came under siege by Prince Vilnen a few years into the war. It was during this battle that Vince's abilities were first recognised, especially by the Great Knight Army under the then-Captain Halm Hallstav.
Only two years later, Viktus decided to move to Invinojug, the Great Knight capital, where he attempted to persuade the Great Knight leaders to support Nendor's claim to the throne of Havik. During Viktus' lengthy battle with the Great Knight conservatives, Vince had to act as a page to Lord Bram Beriaur, Mayor of Invinojug, and became friends with Delphius and Samson, both of whom were also pages and despised Beriaur. It was also during this time that Samson began to uncover the hidden secrets of the Great Knights and shared his discoveries with Delphius and Vince.
At the age of twelve, Vince was taken as a squire by the now-General Hallstav, who had met Vince previously, and shared his visions of reforming the Great Knights into a more liberal utopia, which would later heavily influence Vince's political stance and his eventual refusal to join Chaos as he saw an alternative option to establishing freedom. Vince and Hallstav would often visit Beriaur's castle, with the former visiting his friends and the latter participating in government debates where he pushed for a more liberal agenda. It was also during this time that they met Astrius Tianius, a tragic historical adventurer, and his companions, who would later uncover the beginnings of Chaos to their west.
Over time, Vince became a professional warrior under the watch of Hallstav, participating in many campaigns such as against the Dirvishes (the race of the majority of the Bombers) that inhabited the Ice Hills to their south and the remnants of the Havik rebels (Nendor and his brother Numengaer had become joint kings). When Vince returned home at the age of eighteen, he was officially a knight, having been knighted after leading a personal charge against the Dirvishes at the Defence of Icuwin Temple and breaking the enemy.
