Lord Amelius Vincent is a naval officer who served as the Lord High Admiral of the Britannian Royal Navy up until the First Black Rebellion. In the aftermath of that incident, Lord Vincent decided to go into retirement and was replaced with Prince Johan van Britannia.
Amelius was born into the duchy of Vincent, which at the time resided in Britannia's South American holdings. As a noble he had no problem getting into a military school.

In 1983 he was promoted to lieutenant and transferred to the destroyer HMS Duke of California where Amelius would serve until 1987. Upon promotion to lieutenant commander, he was given his first command: the frigate HMS Ravager. The duke remained in the position until promotion to commander in 1989, at which point he was given a staff posting.

This he was transferred to the Admiralty and his advance increased, becoming a captain in 1991, commodore in 1994, rear admiral in 1998, vice admiral in 1999, and a full admiral in 2003.
