Haggar is a Side eastward of Jetstone. Its relationship with Jetstone has traditionally been troublesome. They originally hoped to exploit Jetstone's troubles by annexing one or more of its cities. However, Chief Warlord Ossomer succeeded in intimidating Haggar to the point where they agreed to join the Royal Crown Coalition against Gobwin Knob. Haggar's leaders secretly planned to betray this alliance at a time most beneficial to themselves. However, Prince Sammy has begun to wonder if perhaps Jetstone is indeed right about the threat posed by Gobwin Knob. Either way, his hand was forced by Charlie, who has set up an ambush around the City of Haggar.
