The Bavel Macrostructure is the main antagonist organization in “Milhamah: Fighting Words.” It is an all-encompassing, global empire that has dissolved all previous national governments through its linguistic imperialism.
The Macrostructure’s leader is the mysterious Beli Ya’al, and its seat of power is the Migdal Bavel tower in the city of Bavel. One of Bavel’s henchmen is Deli.
Just like ancient Babylon, the new Bavel Empire obsesses over space and its stars.
