|“||We believe in Sir Ex. For the sake of Leazas...||”|
—Dodge Evans, reluctantly turning his sword against his own nation to save its future.
|Affiliation|| Leazas, Leazas Black Corps, Leazas Rebel Army|
|Appeared in||Kichikuou Rance|
Dodge Evans is a high-ranking commander of the Leazas Black Corps.
Dodge has to date only appeared in the non-canon Kichikuou Rance, where he, along with his colleagues Jibul Makutomi and Sakanaku Tenka, joins the Leazas Rebel Army formed by General Ex Banquet in opposition of Rance, the recently crowned King of Leazas. While Dodge can be killed in battle when fighting against the rebellion, it is possible to spare him by avoiding defeating Haurein Province, Melfeis Promenade and Pegasus Fort in combat until retaking the rebellion's base in Oaks. If spared, Dodge will not make any further appearances within the story, suggesting that he either resumed his normal duties within the Black Corps after the rebellion's failure or was expelled from the army due to betraying his country.
Personality and Appearance Edit
Dodge is a relatively young man who wears a variation of the standard Leazas soldier's helmet with a bright red curtain protecting the back of his neck. While the helmet obscures the majority of his features, he appears to have a large and somewhat gruesome-looking scar across his face, though only part of it is visible. His clothing consists of the standard uniform for a soldier of the Black Corps.
Due to his limited role in the setting, the majority of Dodge's personality remains unknown. He appears to be the most hesitant of the three Black Corps commanders who take part in the rebellion against Rance, causing him to trail off when speaking as well as to show fear and uncertainty about the afterlife when killed. Despite this, he still stands by Ex as a leader and believes in the rebellion's cause, resulting in him refusing to back down when confronted by his former allies.
While the full extent of Dodge's abilities are a mystery, his grizzled appearance suggests that he is an experienced warrior who has engaged in a large amount of combat in his lifetime. His high position within the army implies that he is a skilled leader, which is further supported by his ability to lead a large army of 1000 soldiers during the rebellion.
- A Black Corps soldier simply referred to as "Evans" appears in Rance 03 while the Leazas Liberation Army is retaking Leazas castle to inform Rance that their forces had successfully regained control of the castle's eastern tower. Whether this soldier was meant to be Dodge himself, a relative of his, or a completely unrelated character is unknown.
