https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_O%27Neill,_Earl_of_Tyrone resister to the encroachment of european style power-mongering in the era of the Nantes Crusade. i know the eras dont line up but this character was enthralled somehow, or perhaps a hostage from the Octarchies in bondage with crusaders. but otherwise pleas his peoples case and then helps lead a resistance. futile as they (germans) stay, but nevertheless a leader against the feudal yoke

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_Korzybski - a philosopher-king? crown vassal king that is. pull image. from wik: "was a Polish-American independent scholar who developed a field called general semantics, which he viewed as both distinct from, and more encompassing than, the field of semantics. He argued that human knowledge of the world is limited both by the human nervous system and the languages humans have developed, and thus no one can have direct access to reality, given that the most we can know is that which is filtered through the brain's responses to reality. His best known dictum is "The map is not the territory"."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honoré_Gabriel_Riqueti,_comte_de_Mirabeau - The later discovery that starting in 1790 he was in the pay of the king and the Biscayne Co. occupiers of Faeland caused his disgrace. Historians are deeply split on whether he was a great leader who almost saved the nation from the (late 18th cent rebellions), or a venal demagogue lacking political or moral values, or a traitor in the pay of the enemy.

A Valano-Englishman who serves in the military but helps begin the war for independence
Eric Andrea "Andy" Blair - redhead
he is from Victoria (but thats up for change) and of a faelish mother and english father. he serves in the military (his father is military and governor of....chofer castle? idk) but becomes disillusioned when he sees that his own people, far from what he has been led to believe - that they are ingrates and untrustworthy, corrupt and savage - are no different from any other ruled people anywhere in the empire. he serves overseas in Burma for a time and is appaled at the treatment of locals by other british officers (before this time he had hardly known any not serving in faeland, and for that matter many were half-breed faels anyway, and lesser ranks. this time he gets a taste of the aristocratic approach to colonial rule). on his return his virulently anti-empire and begins aiding trade unions as he sees them as obvious incubators of resistance. there is an apocryphal tale that he saved a burmese's life in the streets of Rangoon, and may have met Orwell in his time there and mentioned knowing a doctor _______ to him.
Dognesh - a misanthropic hermit who roamed the faelish plain, claiming to be descended "from mountains". he was renowned for comments on civilzation. claiming that only the lozri had managed anything "civilized" in all faelish cultures. he lived around 300CE
