The Dawn Brigade (Japanese: 暁の団 Dawn Group) is a band of Daein citizens who fought for the independence of Daein against Begnion. The group's founding members are Micaiah, Sothe, Edward, Leonardo and Nolan, later Laura, Aran, Ilyana, and Meg join the group.


After the end of the Mad King's War, and control over Daein was given to Begnion. The Begnion Occupation Army lead by General Jarod began to overrun and terrorize the people of Daein, sending all able bodied men into prison camps, that have no purpose other to break all of their bodies and spirits. Furthermore, they allow bandits to run a mock and pillage and harass the villages of Daein including Nevassa. The Dawn Brigade was formed after a young Priestess named Micaiah with a unique magical ability and her friend and protector Sothe were fed up with Begnion's rule and along with the experienced veteran Nolan, and later best friends Edward and Leonardo, they vowed to liberate all of Daein and push Begnion out of power. After encountering Pelleas in the Desert of Death, the Dawn Brigade would merge to become the Daein Liberation Army and eventually push Begnion out of power and make Pelleas the new king of Daein.
