Joe Kohl (乔伊.科尔), former lord of Longsong Stronghold, granted Tigui Pine's father status of Earl. 25 years ago, he was promoted to duke by Wimbledon III and became guardian of the southern border. But with his promotion, Joe's relations with Duke Ryan deteriorated. Before, Joe was in charge of guarding the western border. But after moving south, Joe abandoned Tigui's father, and with that the Pine family fortune and political backing declined.
