Davram Bashere

Picture Of: Nick Offerman
Archtype: Crafty Scholar General
Profession: Scholar (yeah, you heard me)
Realm of Power: None

Only because you rode into the skirmish. A General should not do that. You stay back, surrounded by messengers and guards. You may find yourself not issuing a single order, but you are the core position none the less, the immovable core. Just being there is enough. They can get word to you, you can get word to them. You can shore up, relieve units, and respond to developments. It’s what an officer of high rank does. If you find yourself in the midst of a fight, you are useless, a liability to the soldiers around you, because they’re obliged to save your skin. Even worse, you can see nothing, your messengers can’t find you. You’ve lost perspective. If the core wavers or vanishes, the army falls.

- Davram Bashere to David

Davram t'Ghaline Bashere, Lord of Bashere, Tyr and Sidona, Guardian of the Blightborder, Defender of the Heartland, is Marshal-General to Queen Tenobia si Bashere Kazadi of Saldaea, and is counted as one of the Five Great Captains of the Westlands. He is married to lady Deira ni Ghaline t'Bashere. He has the best claim to the throne of Saldaea, if the present Queen Tenobia abdicated or dies.

His skill as a Great Captain may come in part to his earlier service under the command of the mad Muad Cheade1, who was never defeated. His strategy and skill in battle is great, and like his teacher he has never lost a battle2.
