[edit] Proposed Canon

Haggar is a Royal side eastward of Jetstone. It is currently preparing to pop a new royal warlord. 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 had 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 informed Sammy that he had set up an ambush around the City of Haggar and threatened to sack it if Haggar didn't immediately attack Gobwin Knob's forces. Prince Sammy was croaked in the subsequent battle.

[edit] Real World References

Haggar seems to refer to the clothing company by the same name.

Prince Sammy Haggar is based on the performer Sammy Hagar.

The Haggar emblem is the logo for Cabo Wabo tequila, which is owned by Sammy Hagar. "Wabo" is one of the war cries of Sammy's squad.

Haggar may also refer to the comic strip (and titular character) Hagar the Horrible.

Haggar was the name of an enemy witch in the cartoon Voltron, though there are no obvious references to this so far.

Likewise, Haggar is the name of a Capcom character who was a professional wrestler and mayor (and which, merely incidentally, favored pants as his only clothing), but there is no clear reference.

[edit] Speculation

Parson Gotti is currently planning to look for non-royal sides that would be willing to ally with Gobwin Knob in the war against Charlie and the Royal Crown Coalition. But Haggar may well be the very first royal side to join this alliance. Haggar has long had a contentious history with Jetstone, and thanks to recent events, will have a grudge against Charlie. Unlike the rest of the Royal Crown Coalition, Haggar cares nothing for the royal mandate and only joined thanks to military pressure from Jetstone. Much like Parson, Haggar is more than willing to fight dirty and commit deeds some might consider dishonorable. Also, Wanda Firebaugh is the only Erfworlder who presently has the means to revive King Haggar's croaked son, Prince Sammy. Decrypting him would allow Haggar to recover a valuable unit, while the Arkenpliers's effect on Loyalty would give Gobwin Knob some insurance against Haggar backstabbing them at some point.
