The Boston Dissolution Event was and still is the most costly Gigant-based loss of life in the southern hemisphere, resulting in the total abandonment of the city due to massive infrastructure damage, flooding, and the inserting of an unknown quantity of Gigantes into the surrounding ecosystem by Typhon, Progenitor-King of the Gigantes.

Aftermath of the EventEdit
The one-sided loss of Boston to Typhon, the largest and most powerful Gigant on record, prompted a massive reform of Anti-Gigant countermeasures in the United States. Usage of H.E. warheads became a mainstay due to being the only weapon capable of damaging Typhon signifigantly, a fact that was made known only after the monster plowed through a naval ship armed with one and caused its premature detonation. Although plans have been made, no action has been made to reconstruct the city due to the likelihood of it being attacked a second time. Many survivors have been institutionalized due to mental and physical instability.
