The people of the caravan in Panzer Dragoon Saga led by An'jou. Although their group had apparently been larger when they first set out into the world, only five remained when Edge visited the caravan during his quest: An'jou, the solemn man who had become the caravan’s leader; his young son Enkak; a woman named Kou; her husband Baicah, and their daughter Fei. These survivors seemed to have adapted to their way of life well, and they were joined by an Imperial deserter named Raul, a poor mercenary whose services they had employed to improve their chances.
The caravan’s way of life appeared to be simple and hard. By day, An’jou and Raul would depart on their coolias to hunt the deadly creatures that their people depended upon. Not only did the caravan live off the meat provided by these beasts, but vital medicines could be extracted from their organs, and their tough hides, shells, and other body parts could be put to numerous uses. As Baicah was not so skilled at tracking prey, he remained at the caravan by day to process the relevant antidotes and trade with travellers. The societies of the Panzer Dragoon world were still male-oriented, so the women of the caravan did not go out on the hunting trips.
All of these characters had their own stories to tell, and Edge could get to know each of them as their caravan moved out of the bleak desert towards the more verdant lands around the Forest of Zoah. Although the hunters had planned to settle down in Zoah, the destruction of that town at the hands of the Empire forced them to reconsider. Ultimately they decided to continue their search for a welcoming settlement in hospitable lands, and they set out into the desert once again.
Players were given one final glimpse of this caravan in the game’s epilogue, for Azel stumbled across it by chance as she headed out on her journey. At this time there were many more tents, coolias and people present though, so perhaps they had merged with another group of like-minded refugees. An’jou offered to let Azel join them in their journey, but Azel would not turn away from her quest. The sympathetic leader gifted her with a coolia, and watched her ride away into the west.
