As the first wave attacked them, Ishmael began to fire his musket and proceeded to hold the line with the other men.

As the Artillery was being placed at the top, the EITC Squad and some Regiments were stationed at the front to defend the courtyard until a group of spaniards charged toward them wildly with their bayonets in their hands, screaming at the British. For one hour the EITC Squad retreated back to the top. Ishmael realized he couldn't just stand there and watch his fellow marines die from the battle. He grabbed his Musket, some flintlock, and his trusty tomahawk. Before he walked onto the battlefield, he first put some Indian paints style on his face and he then began to charge toward the 2,000 Spanish soldiers. He shouted out to them this message: "For the king and the country! I shall be known as Killer Angel!" He readied his musket and hit some dagos with it until one dago attempted to stop him. In response, he turned around, hit him hard with the musket, and then fired a shot at the officer. He pulled his flintlock pistol and continued to fire at Spanish troops until he ran out of ammo. He pulled out his tomahawk and knife, and began to attack them with his blades. As he continued to slaughter some more Spanish regiments with the tomahawk and knife, he quickly snapped one of the officers with it and threw his tomahawk at the last remaining soldier.

Not cool. You have no idea how not cool that is, but I think you're going to be up to speed here shortly. Yeah... you are so going to regret crossing me in a few minutes. Yes, you are. You see, Joseph... whatever you do, no matter what, you do not mess with the Sardinian, and the new world order is this, and it's really, very simple; even if you're stupid, which you very well may be, you can understand it.

Not to be confused with his Titles:
- Emperor of Sardinia & Russia (Formerly)
Easygoing, open-minded, wise, comforting, generous, advising, kind, and humorous, Ish treated his self-imposed exile during his failure in the War of Sardinian Succession as though it were an extended vacation. However, beneath his easygoing attitude lays a wise man experienced in the ways of the world, a seasoned and wily strategist, and an incredibly strong and powerful swordmaster.
Although he appeared hedonistic, Ish's life philosophies were about living life to the fullest and choosing your own destiny. He was a firm believer that everyone had the power to create their own destiny.He appeared laid-back because he understood that there were things in life he could not control, but he also believed that a person is fully responsible for the parts they can.
Despite his qualities all pointing him as a fearsome warrior and bloodthirsty conqueror, Ishmael is a devoted family man as well. He is a fine husband to his wife, Dany but an even better father to his children; whom he adores. Particularly his son whom he dotes on and grooms as his successor. Ishmael also cherishes his brother Ivan, though his love for his brother and care for his family Ishmael also cherishes the lives of his friends.
He is a persistent warrior, who knows he won't always win, but he is brave to enough to return to battle always without fear because he knows that perseverance will lead to victory someday no matter what it takes. He has set point and he is capable even surrounded by people who don't believe in his convictions because he knows they are just trying to hold him back

Quotes by Ishmael
""I cannot stop thinking about death. Death intrigues me. The death of children. The death of friends. But my own death continues to elude me. In my world, it is believed that the day of your death is fated. Would you like to know the day of your death?"" ― Ishmael Decksteel
""Power is dangerous. These are the words of the Gods. But that power, that danger, is everything. It lives in an army that will protect my people and my rule. My son, my legacy, has become the bravest of warriors. I listen silently to the ramblings of men. Those who dream of danger may awake to death. But life must be lived to the fullest before it is over. I embrace the idea of life and death. For I am not the one in charge of my fate."" ― Ishmael advise Power
""I used to believe that being a good soldier meant doing everything they told you. That's how they engineered us. But we're not slaves or pawns. We're not programmed. You have to learn to make your own decisions."" ― Ishmael advise a soldier
"Yes we had an alliance, as equals, but as you can plainly see we are no longer equals. Everything has changed, for both of us. You must get used to it." ― Ishmael Decksteel
"I am ashamed, that my word as King meant nothing to some of you. That you organized this catastrophe among yourselves. That you took it upon yourselves to violate a treaty, that I had signed in good faith. I know what the enemy will make of these terrible events. My name and my word as King of Sardinia will mean nothing to them. But it can not be, can not be. I can not allow and I can't tolerate treason." ― Ishmael to the Traitors
"This is the right time, and I will risk everything. Because if we don't, we've lost. We march to victory, or we march to defeat, but we go forward. Only forward." ― Ishmael to his Commanders
"Good morning. Good morning. In less than an hour, every people from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest battle in the history of mankind. Mankind, that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps it's fate that today is the June 21st, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live, to exist, and should we win the day, the Kingdom of Sardinia will no longer be known as an Kingdom, but as the day when the country declared in one voice, 'We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on, we're going to survive. Today we celebrate our Independence day!' ." ― Ishmael Decksteel to the Sardinians Citizens.

"Poland, Switzerland, Spain, they're all thieves. They'll bend the knee or I'll destroy them." ― Ishmael
"When the king brands us,he doesn't mean to make us adversaries. He doesn't mean to make us criminals. He means to make us monsters. For that's the only way his god-fearing, tax-paying subjects can make sense of men who keep what is theirs and fear no one. When I say there's a war coming, I don't mean with the whole European, I don't mean with King George or England. Civilization is coming. And it means to exterminate us.❞" ― Ishmael
"An empire toppled by its enemies can rise again, but one which crumbles from within? That's dead... forever." ― Ishmael
"They say they will pardon us all, but I say to offer to pardon something one fears is the act of a coward. To offer them in volume suggests that their fear of us is becoming unmanageable, that we have shown them what we are capable of and it terrifies them." ― Ishmael
"The other nations betrayed him because he spoke for the Heathen when no other people would. He would died for us. If we're not willing to do the same for him, then we're cowards, and if that's what we are, then we deserve to be the last of the Heathen." ― Giantsbane to the Heathen people.
