Jaster Myryryl is the Lord General of the military of the Protectorate of Berranoth. Jaster was a career soldier from a young age, at first under the Old Duke Avillar and then under his patricidal son Oteron. Myryryl always chafed at the discipline of military life and was notorious for a problem with discipline.
Jaster Myryryl’s fortunes changed with Oteron Avillar’s coup. Once the newly crowned True Lord of the Protectorate began his aggressive war of expansion, Jaster’s amazing swordsmanship (rivaling even Oteron’s) and utter fearlessness distinguished him on the battlefront. Distinguisment became promotion and Myryrl rocketed through the ranks to the post of Lord General. It was with this that he found the freedom to experiment with an extreme style of swordsmanship – the Hydra’s Array: a bewildering kata based on one’s ability to juggle six swords of differing size and weight.
A consumate professional, Jaster commands from the frontline, often within shouting distance of the True Lord Oteron. While Myryryl understands the value of combined-arms strategy, the Lord General feels threatened by Overlord Shar Thizdic’s steamtech creations encroaching upon and supplementing his success in battle. Thizdic returns this negative sentiment, and their relations are chilly at best.
