General Van Handel is an NPC that you will need to talk to several times in the Storyline, particularly in Chapters 1, 2, 5, and 6.

After you fully level up, walking past the Royal Guard (moonhaven @jump 185 210) will teleport you to General Van Handel. At first, he will belittle you, yell at you, and question Jacque's faith in you. To prove yourself, he asks you to bring him three items to complete the Chapter 1 quest 'General Van Handel: Handel's Recommendation'. All three items can be obtained in Bossnia (MVP room):

Chapter 1: A Bitter End

General Van Handel: Handel's Recommendation

After you submit all three items to General, he will give you a Professional Set. After choosing your path from Sophia, talking to her again will reveal to you why General Van Handel acts this way.

Sophia: The General's Wife - Gavriil

You find out that there is a dragon named Nidhoggr's Revenge who resides in Eden Dungeon. Many men lost their lives trying to fight him, so General's wife, Gavriil, decided to go fight him personally. It's been revealed that she herself got killed in the dungeon. Learning about his wife completes "Sophia: The General's Wife - Gavriil" and will unlock Eden Dungeon on your character.

General Van Handel: 'Nidhoggr's Revenge' slain

Sophia asks you to kill the summoned version of Nidhoggr's Revenge. Even if you submit the ring, you still have to kill the summoned Nidhoggr's Revenge.

General Van Handel: Gavriil's Ring found

Sophia asks you to retrieve Gavriil's Ring from Nidhoggr's Revenge and show it to General to help him move on. All versions of Nihoggr drop this ring. Even if you submit the ring, you still have to kill the summoned Nidhoggr's Revenge.

General Van Handel: 'Thank you'

Talk to the General again to receive a reward from him (Quest completed: "General Van Handel: 'Thank you'" | Reward: Path's lower headgear).
