The First Army, also known as the King's Army, is Ravka's first line of defense against outside threats, including the Fjerdans to the north and the Shu to the south, as well as the flesh eating monsters that live in the Shadow Fold.

First Army vs. Second ArmyEdit

The First Army is comprised of non-Grisha Ravkans, sometimes referred to as otkazat'sya ("the abandoned") in historical texts. There is a natural rivalry, bordering on hostility, between the First and Second Armies, arising from a mistrust of Grisha power on the part of the First Army, and a scorn for the ordinariness of otkazat'sya on the part of the Second Army. This friction exemplifies the wider conflict between Grisha and the magic-less peoples who have historically feared and persecuted them.


There are different jobs that someone can have when they're in the First Army and they are placed into different units.
