Castor Vargas (カストール・バルガス, Kasutōru Barugasu) is a character of Genjitsu Shugi Yuusha no Oukoku Saikenki series. He was the former leader of the Air Force and is currently the Captain of the Aircraft Carrier Hiryuu.
Castor is described as a tall man, with red hair, and has the horns, wings and tail of a dragon. His species is classified as a dragonnewt.
Castor is considered as headstrong and stubborn, with extreme pride. He is seen as formidable in direct combat, but is at a severe disadvantage when going up against an opponent who uses underhanded tactics. He has a tendency to leap into battle without considering the consequences.
After being defeated during the One Week War, Castor is a bit more humble and realizes the merits of caution and patience.
Castor Vargas is the son-in-law to Excel Walter and was the leader of the Air Force of the Vargas Duchy. Under his leadership were 10,000 wyvern-riding troops, with his daughter Carla Vargas as his second-in-command. At the time of summoning Kazuya Souma, he had already served Elfrieden for over a century.
Prior to the One Week War, Castor, along with Georg Carmine, openly rebelled against the newly-appointed king and rejected his intent to disband the Air Force, Army and Navy to form a combined Armed Military. Castor believed that Kazuya had usurped the throne from Albert Elfrieden and was becoming a tyrant. Despite being corrected by Excel that Albert had willingly abdicated his throne to Kazuya, Castor stubbornly defied the new king.
This would prove to be his undoing as Castor and his daughter were outwitted on the first day of the One Week War and captured. The Air Force was later used to subdue Georg Carmines's forces and drive out the invading Amidonian Army.
For his defiance, Castor would have met with the death penalty. However, due to his century of service, Castor was spared and put under the command of Excel. He would later be appointed as the Captain of the newly-made carrier Hiryuu.
