Legacy of Kain Wiki

"'Tis not your kingdom I desire, but your army, Ottmar. I require troops to vanquish the Horde that descends upon us from the North."

The Army of the Last Hope was a powerful army commanded by King Ottmar. It was named so because it was seen as the only thing powerful enough to prevent Nosgoth from falling into the hands of the Nemesis. However, following the dollmaking contest in which Ottmar lost his daughter's soul to Elzevir the Dollmaker the Army was broken. It was scattered across Nosgoth looking for Elzevir. Kain seized upon this opportunity and hunted the Dollmaker down, thus restoring the Princess and gaining Ottmar's favor. For his service, Kain had Ottmar and his Army attempt to defeat Nemesis' army, the Legions of the Nemesis.

However, the Army was defeated in the Battle of the Last Stand by the Legions of Nemesis. Ottmar was killed and the Army fled into the woods. Kain escaped through a time streaming device and changed the timeline. Following the alteration, neither the Army, nor the King were ever mentioned. It is assumed that although they survived, their lives had little to do with the storyline.
