Prince Yvarn of Meletan

Yvarn had commanded the fortress of Eagle Gate for some five summers before Darkblade's assault. When the prince first took up command, many of his subordinates believed him to be unforged, lacking the necessary experience for so weighty a duty. Such opinions were not entirely unfounded. Yvarn was a distant cousin to the Phoenix King, and his family had much influence at court. However, what doubts there where quickly vanished during the Wars of Reclamation, when the host of the plaguelord Septimus Rot threatened to overwhelm Eagle Gate's defences. Yvarn's spear might have been but one of many to pierce the daemon's hide, but it was also the first to do so, for no other in the garrison could find the courage to stand in the creature's path.[1a]
