The Commandant is the main antagonist of the 2005 war novel Beasts of No Nation as well as its 2015 film adaptation of the same name. He is the leader of a Native Defense Force rebel battalion in an unnamed West African country. He recruits Agu, a preadolescent boy and the main protagonist, as a child soldier.

He was portrayed by Idris Elba, who also played Russell "Stringer" Bell in The Wire, Br'er Wolf in The Adventures of Br'e Rabbit, Charles Miner in the US version of The Office, William Roque in The Losers, Colin Evans in No Good Deed, Shere Khan in the 2016 The Jungle Book live-action remake, Krall in Star Trek Beyond, Brixton Lore in Hobbs & Shaw, Macavity in the 2019 Cats film and Bloodsport in The Suicide Squad.

History

The Commandant leads a rebel army in a civil war in an African country, and recruits children in his battalion; those who fail their training are killed. A recently-orphaned boy, Agu, is forcibly recruited into the battalion, where he meets a mute boy named Strika. When the army stops and robs a gang of innocent people, The Commandant forces Agu to kill an unarmed man with a machete to prove his loyalty, amongst other acts of violence, of which Agu feels strong remorse for.

The Commandant and his battalion commit acts of brutality throughout the land, raiding and destroying villages and massacring and raping their victims. At one night, The Commandant lures Agu into a room, saying that he favors Agu, and proceeds by raping him (he is implied to do this to the other child soldiers as well, such as Strika).

When the leader of the rebel group announces his plan to demote The Commandant due to his actions and promotes his lieutenant in his place, the Commandant goes to a prostitute house to "celebrate" the lieutenant promotion. The next morning, the lieutenant is shot by one of the prostitutes and The Commandant accuses her of trying to kill the lieutenant. The prostitute pleads with the commandant and says it was an accident, but The Commandant orders his men her along with all the other prostitutes. In an act of spite, he leads his battalion in an attack against the rest of the rebel group.

After months of hardship, the battalion have gotten weaker and the soldiers realizes that there is no point in fighting in the war. The Commandant first tries to convince them to stay. When Agu points his gun at The Commandant, he points his at Agu's head, but later goes away. He tells the soldier that they can leave if they want but they will not be successful and arrogantly claims that they will regret it. He believes that they will stay, but instead they all abandon The Commandant. 

Personality

The Commandant was a charismatic and arrogant leader of the NDP army. He convinced Agu to join the army, although he didn't have much choice. The Commandant was very cold, as shown when he forced Agu to kill an innocent man with a machete by exploiting the fact that Agu's entire family was killed by members of ECOMOG, although the innocent men obviously didn't have anything to do with it. He also turned out to be a child molester as he molested Agu along with other children in his army. He was also very uncaring for his soldiers when several of them dies along the way to the war-zones. He even had no problem with threatening children as well, as shown in the final scene when he points a gun towards Agu's head.
