Gherin Zen was an Armiger within the Seventh Legion of Lookshy when his charge was killed at the Battle of Mishaka. When he was assigned to guard a middle-aged thaumaturge with good technical skills, he did not complain, but neither did he celebrate.

He doesn’t talk much about why he followed Kalanthes out of the legion to Nathir, or why he’s stayed since his erstwhile employer has become one of the Anathema. He keeps his reasons to himself and does his duty. Moreover, he has been a source of wisdom about the Terrestrial Exalted and the various military forces of the Scavenger Lands for the growing circle of Solars.
