Sheriff Casal Tarne

Commander of the City Guard


In his early fifties, Casal’s hair and beard have grayed but he still cuts an impressive and strong physical figure. More the strategist than the brute warrior, Casal’s demeanor is always one of a cautious and calculating nature.


Casal worked for years as Lord General Halidan Tarne’s unofficial advisor but found that his cousin never heeded any of his advice. Two two had a falling out, after which Casal became Gralton’s Sheriff and Commander of the City Guard. He disagrees with his cousin’s approach of simply raiding Galt, believing that the troops should hold until they are more numerous, stronger and better organized.
