Typical Dialogue:


Gavin Tael prefers to lead from the front. He generally sets up a battle and waits to see how it develops, sometimes getting close to the front to rally troops. Once he identifies a weak point on the enemy side, he leads the Iron Guard to that spot to break them. From then on he is generally in combat. He favors his morningstar, Warstar, and concentrates on the tougher foes. He has no code of single combat, and uses his companions to help him bring down the most stalwart defenders.

He is married to Laurel Tuor.
