The Island Liberation Navy was founded by Lino En Kuldes under the advisement of Elenor Silverberg, using the remnants of the Obel Navy that had fled the island following its fall to Kooluk as its basis. The navy was formed due to the need for all the islands in the region to unite against Kooluk to ensure their continued independence.
The reason for this appointment, aside from Lazlo's ability to lead and inspire was an attempt to separate the Island Liberation Navy from the Kingdom of Obel.
A quick alliance with Kika's group of pirates, based at the Nest of Pirates, followed by a successful alliance with Na-Nal and guarantees of cooperation from Nay and Middleport allowed the navy to grow strong enough to stand up to Kooluk, first liberating Razril and then Obel.
With the region free from Kooluk occupation, the Liberation Navy then attacked the Kooluk fleet at the Kooluk southern outpost of El-Eal, eventually destroying the fortress, curtailing any Kooluk plans for southern expansion for years to come.
After the WarEdit
The Island Liberation Navy was disbanded at the end of Island Liberation War. However, many soldiers and officers did join or otherwise contribute to the newly established Island Nations Federation Navy following its foundation.
