General Sapristi is a Toscan general in The Emperor of Nihon-Ja. He demonstrates Toscan strategies to the Araluen and Arridi delegation, comprising of Halt, Will, Alyss and Selethen. The delegation used the strategy later on in the fight with Arisaka's men.
He is slightly unsure how to approach Halt and Will, due to their constant verbal sparring matches and cheerful insults which they throw at one another; Toscans are notorious for not being able to take jokes very well. He decides it would be less confusing to ignore them.At first, when Will and Halt are unimpressed with the Toscan Century's marching, he smiles to himself, thinking (correctly) that their opinion will soon change.
