The Pagase Brig [1], known colloquially as the "Old Soldier," is a brig from Pagase.


It is 200 years old and the oldest ship on the Periphery.

It joined the Periphery Campaign and was the second ship that the Valley Gunship encountered (after the Pejitei Gunship).

Its captain, presumably the Chieftain of Pagase, called to Nausicaä and Mito through a speaking-trumpet (aka a bullhorn), mistaking her for King Jhil until he realized his mistake, then expressed amazement at "a woman gunship pilot."

The "Old Soldier" then flew in formation with the Valley Gunship until they encountered the rest of the Periphery gunships.

Whether the "Old Soldier" survived the Battle of the Acid Lakes and succeeded in returning to the Valley of the Wind to meet with Jhil and the other Periphery chieftains is unknown.
