Defenders of the Vale
Leader of the Lion Guard
The leader of Brindol’s Lion Guard is an imposing man with a pronounced limp in his left leg, the remnant of the wound received in a tragic battle with brigands, saving young Sylvana Jarmaath, but needing to abandon his lover, Kira, in the failed defense of her parents, the previous Lord and Lady of Brindol. Lars has stubbornly refused offers to have the old wound magically healed. His innate stubbornness has served him well over the years, most often in his adamant refusal to compromise the funding, training, and pay for his soldiers. While this insistence has led to numerous arguments between him and Lord Jarmaath, the loyalty and morale of his soldiers is beyond reproach. He has secretly trained Sylvana to fight, in spite of her brother’s wishes.
