    I'm rather fond of Alexander the Great and Machiavelli, for obvious reasons.

    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Hrrrm... Let's add Buckminister Fullerene into that too.

    The reasons are self-explanatory.

    just kidding.
    Napoleon and Hannibal probably.
    Erwin was a loyal general who was just on the wrong side, he cared about his troops. He could have stopped D-day if Hitler listened to him.

    Admiral Yi Sun-Shin, a Corean naval admiral who has never lost a single ship or battle in his entire career before he was killed in battle by a sniper. He is sometimes compared with Admiral Nelson. Also he never recieved any naval training. His first victory against the Japanese was also his first naval battle. He's also widely famed for the Battle of Myeongnyang, in which he defeated a Japanese force of at least 133 large warships and 333 small warships with only 13 ships.

    Alexander died from disease.

    Davout was a Marshal under Napoleon who defeated a Prussian Army of about 63,000 troops with his corps of only 28,000. He was also the only Napoleonic Marshal to have never lost a battle

    An Jung-geun was a Corean freedom fighter, who cut off his finger and wrote in blood the words "Korean Independence!" on a Korean national flag. He is known for assassianting Ito Hirobumi, the Resident-General of Korea.
