Haffaton was a [[side]] involved in conflict with [[Goodminton]] around the time when [[Wanda]] popped. Haffaton is [[alliance|unallied]] at the time,<sup>[[IPTSF Text 6]]</sup> but later gets [[Frenemy]] and [[Quisling]] as allies.<sup>[[IPTSF Text 26]]</sup> After the destruction of [[Goodminton]], Haffaton obtained the services of [[Wanda]]. At the peak of its power, Haffaton was the strongest side in Erfworld, possessing over 70 cities and almost completely surrounding the secret kingdom of [[Faq]].

Spurred on by a [[prophecy]], Faq began searching for a new capital to escape their conquest at Haffaton's hands. Thanks to [[Jillian]]'s recklessness, Haffaton learned of Faq's existence and fulfilled the prophecy, seizing control of Faq's cities. However, all the people on the side managed to escape and eventually managed to take one of Haffaton's spare [[capital]] cities and [[capture]] its [[Overlady]].

According to [[Overlord Firebaugh]], [[Goodminton]] has faced [[Foolamancy]], [[Thinkamancy]], [[Hat Magic]], [[Weirdomancy]] and [[Carnymancy]] in its fight against Haffaton (in addition to [[Olive Branch]]'s [[Flower Power]]).  As most casters are unable to cast outside of their discipline, this likely indicates that Haffaton had a sizeable number of casters. However, by the time Jillian enters the scene, they only seem to have two left, Wanda Firebaugh and Olive Branch, with the rest of them implied to have been croaked by Olive's Heroine buds.

The name Haffaton refers to the expression "half a ton" or "half ton" (roughly equal to 1000 pounds).
+
-
 
+
-
Another possible interpretation would be the expression "(to) have a ton", as in "I have a ton of units".
+
-
 
+
-
Haffaton may also refer to [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halftone halftone] - "technique that simulates continuous tone imagery through the use of dots, varying either in size, in shape or in spacing". This technique is used in printing photographic images - usually black-and-white - in newspapers (which may explain Haffaton's black and white livery).
+
-
 
+
-
Haffaton may also be a corruption of "half a town" implying that it is a mere shell.
