Manchester was described as one of the biggest cities in the world. It allied itself with the Traktionstadtsgesellschaft. When its mayor Adlai Browne- an opposer of peace and a staunch municipal Darwinist had taken over leadership of the Traktionstadtsgesellschaft ,he ordered an invasion of the Storm's land. But it was only when all the other cities had made their advance against the Green Storm that Manchester advanced and then with the protection of the Harvester Suburbs Werwolf and Evercreech. It seemed that it would help the Tractionists win the war, but it was destroyed by ODIN along with the rest of the Traktionstadts.
