commander for local Cold Line fort. Devotee of Anaxial the
mean't to happen.Tekeneth had a glittering career in the set
up for him by his father in the Yuthuppan military, parties,
carousing, eventually moving into politics. Yes it was all
mapped out, but no one mentioned anything about actual fighting.
Life was good in Yuthuppa, the women literally fell at the
feet of this dashing well connected young officer. All this
was fine until he met Selencia, how was he to know that she
was the daughter of the Yuthuppan military commander, and
that he didn't take kindly to having his daughters feelings
here he is in this Yelm-forsaken hole, he hates the cold,
the savagery. Has little respect for his men ("no better
than thieves and brigands"), and the feeling is mutual.
Actively despises the locals as uncouth barbarians.
is one local who seems more interesting than the rest, a local
scout who is attached to the garrison, he seems to speak better
New Pelorian than the local heathens, washes occasionally
and even knows how to use a knife and fork. Still has the
native surley streak, so can't really trust him. Still, only
a couple more years and he may be allowed back to Yuthuppa.
