— Sturm -

Sturm (Japanese: ヘルボウズ Herubouzu, Hell-Bouze) is a Commanding Officer in the leader of the Black Hole Army, and presumably of the nation itself as well. He is the primary antagonist in both Advance Wars and Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising.

His Japanese name is romanized as Herubouzu, or "Hell Bouzu". A bouzu is a Japanese Buddhist monk, so his name roughly translates to "Hell Monk".

Role[edit]

In Advance Wars[edit]

In Advance Wars, Sturm is a puppet master and the instigator of both the Blue Moon invasion of Orange Star and an attack on Green Earth, thereby causing a continental war. Although he remains a mystery for a long time, Sturm is finally revealed and defeated at The Final Battle!

In Advance Wars 2[edit]

In Advance Wars 2, Sturm is revealed to have launched an invasion of all four nations in Macro Land, although he does not lead the invasions himself. Eventually, the nations are able to fend off Black Hole and bring the war to Black Hole itself, where Sturm is confronted and defeated twice. He then threatens to kill himself and the commanders present, but is stopped by his former underling Hawke, who kills Sturm and seizes power.

Personality[edit]

War-mongering with a pretty big ego, Sturm is a calculating and cold leader who capably orchestras invasions throughout Macro Land and Cosmo Land with remarkable efficiency. Despite the qualities of being ruthless and highly determined very little is actually said by Sturm to gauge much of his personality.

Relationships[edit]

None whatsoever - Sturm considered everyone inferior to himself, up to and including his second-in-command, Hawke.
