Abilities and Powers
When acting as E-Rantel's mayor, Panasolei had complete authority over the fortress city. He also possesses some accounting abilities, as he was able to forecast and analyze the financial health of the Kingdom.
Due to being a loyal servant of the king and the Royal Faction, Panasolei is very familiar to his liege. As seen during their interactions, despite his physical appearance making it more difficult, Panasolei is shown to offer the king the outmost respect as his superior and loyally does his best to assist him in dealing with the various issues regarding the immensely corrupt kingdom and address its many issues. This is seen where he and Ramposa himself shares many things with each other, as seen where they both harbor genuine care for the commoners of the Kingdom and genuinely want to better it for their sakes.
However as seen by the events of Volume 14, despite hhis loyalty towards the King, Pansasolei is evidently far more loyal to the Kingdom as a whole. This is seen where Panasolei himself willingly assisted and backed Prince Zanac in dethroning Rampossa due to his foolish insistence with peace with the Sorcerer Kingdom despite how destructively clear the hostile state made it their intentions known in order to properly prepare the Kingdom for war.
