Hannibal Barca was a famous Carthiginian military commander, who died in either 183 or 181 BC. Historically, he committed suicide by poison at a old age for not being able to complete his conquests. Now a Drifter and elderly, he is seen arguing with Scipio Africanus over the latter's "plagiarism" of Cannae at the Battle of Zama. They were enemies opposite each other in the Second Punic War. After nearly being killed by the Black King's army, Hannibal insists that victory is still possible. He seems senile but is actually very intelligent and is always calm. From time to time, often becomes Nobunaga's military adviser, where, despite entering a state of Dementia following Scipio's disappearance, Nobunaga would interpret Hannibal's ideas as they are conveyed through body motions.
