Largo was born in Baticul as Badaq Oakland in N.D. 1969 and eventually became a mercenary guarding caravans traveling to the merchant city of Chesedonia. In N.D. 1997, he married Sylvia Oakland, who later took his name, on Gnome-Redecan 35. Two years later, in N.D. 1999, Sylvia gave birth to Meryl Oakland, who was later swapped with the princess of Kimlasca, Natalia Luzu Kimlasca-Lanvaldear, daughter of King Ingobert VI and Olivia Kimlasca-Lanvaldear. Sylvia's mother, Maggie, performed the replacement, which took place due to the true princess being stillborn, and afterward, Meryl would be known as "Natalia". This change was foretold in the Score. Distraught, Sylvia threw herself in Baticul's harbor and drowned. A few days later, Largo barged into the castle in an attempt to take his daughter back, but he was arrested and exiled. He wandered Auldrant until he met Van Grants, who convinced him to join forces by denouncing the Score.
