Name: Eliel Jasto
Location: Mayhill, Akron
Mayhill, the capital city of the Kingdom of Akron, houses also the king’s castle and is one of the biggest cities in the kingdom. The City Guard of Mayhill comprises of hand picked merited soldiers with a proven track record of loyalty and courage. Eliel Jasto made his merits fighting against the demihuman threat in the Bloodspires area in Witchlight Strand where he was positioned in an outpost along with 45 other soldiers. Eliel is currently stationed in Mayhill and in charge of a five guard team (one of many) responsible for castle and main market safety. While the city guardsmen patrolling the streets and breaking bar fights and whatnot are equipped with lighter armor and are armed with swords, Eliel’s team is equipped similarly to the castle guard teams wearing reinforced gambesons over haubergeons and armed with pole arms which are superior weapons to swords in crowd control situations. In fact it’s not uncommon for Eliel and his team to take over castle guard duties.
Eliel may not be a super soldier fit for the king’s personal guard but he is proficient with many different weapons, acts calmly and rationally under extreme pressure and is very perceptive making him an excellent soldier for the city guard. He is well known as a man who can spot hidden clues even from a distance and subtle nuances in how men behave, speak or dress. He can sniff spies, thieves and other scoundrel even from a thick crowd and has a proven track record of preventing all sort of crime from happening (even an assassination against the city’s mayor!). He is also loyal to the fault and can not be bought off to look the other way but this loyalty has unfortunately resulted also in bad blood within the city guard units as he exposed a ring of thieves – some of which were his fellow guardsmen – stealing from the king’s warehouses and some of them were later hanged as an example.
Eliel has a wife and three children who all live in Mayhill and becomes an ordinary family man while off duty. He likes to fish with his eldest son Scott and couches a team of teenagers in the active sport of karanbach (a team -based ball game) which is a very popular sports game in Mayhill and Akron in general.
