Captain ... of the Illyrian Guard, of House ...
While the Merchant-Magistrate Markos might be feared for his cruelty and madness, there is perhaps one man feared more still for his brutality and savageness. Having fought threats against Illyros and raided many nearby isles and ships for the sheer pleasure of it, having championed House Illyrian in many duels and disputes, and by rumor having once ripped the arms off one of the countless women he raped, it is no surprise to anyone that Markos has appointed such a man to be the captain of his guard. This giant brute of a man serves Markos with much loyalty, having earned his land and House title only because the Merchant-Magistrate bestowed it upon him for the slaughter the man commited in his name. If a man crosses the Merchant-Magistrate, they better hope they do not find this man towering over and staring down at them in a dark alley.
Nicknamed 'the Earthquake' for the thunderous strength and weight he crushes his enemies with, leaving his victims to shake in their boots.

... of House ..., of Cos
Envoy of Cos
Cos had conquered Illyros at the end of the Drowned War, but bar the rioting, plundering and rape that happened on the outer edges of the city the terms remained amicable, mostly with an eye to the future. Every year Illyros is expected to pay a great tribute to Cos, consisting of several dozen chests of gold and silver coins, as part of the agreement between the then leaders of both city-states. Among the men who pillaged the households and ravaged the women of various Illyrosian families at the end of the war was ... of House ... (this character). For his victory and conquest he was awarded many Illyrosian women as slaves and granted a large fortune of his own to expand his House and army with countless more servants and guards.
Now after nearly four centuries the Ubar of Cos, Thelonius the Young has ordered this man to return to Illyros, and to take the battle-fit men of his House with him, to convince and intimidate Illyros in remembering the Drowned War peace agreement: the payment of the yearly tribute and for the first time in ages, the call to join a war against an enemy of Cos: Ar.
