Never mind about that,’ he grunted. ‘Dump these two here and get over by the gate. Don’t know when there’ll be others coming.’ The Spires never met a problem they could not bioengineer their way out of. The W’adrhun were them bioengineering their way out of the problems of ‘total civilizational collapse’ with a side of ‘the creation of a dark god’. Conceptualized as the perfect warrior species they would one day use to conquer their alien homeland, the W’adrhun instead found purpose in serving as the outer line of the defense of the Spires. The titles of the works derive from various sources, including real-world quotes or phrases, and in-world references. Tul was first up, a dozen Carls behind him. ‘Alright, Thunderhead,’ said Dogman, ‘you got the main gate.’Rudd Threetrees, an older veteran member of Logen's band, a skilled and inspiring leader in his own right.

Founded long before the Hundred Kingdoms were even refugees gathering and huddling together, barely surviving against the horrors of the night, the City States were already flourishing with the highest levels of education and philosophy.

People like to watch the pretty puppets, Superior. Even a glimpse of the puppeteer can be most upsetting for them. Why, they might even suddenly notice the strings around their own wrists." Bayaz The North is referred to as such not only by The Union (for whom it really is to the north) but also by those who live there, who refer to themselves as Northmen. Shortly before the start of the trilogy, bad blood had developed between Logen and Bethod. He and his crew - Dow, Tul, Grim, Dogman, Threetrees, and Forley the Weakest – were imprisoned in Carleon. Expecting death, Bethod inexplicably allows them to go into exile. Dogman, a loyal member of Logen's band, a skilled scout with sharpened teeth and an incredible sense of smell. Leo is saved from the hanging by Savine's confession to Orso that they found out they were siblings, and even through Leo rebellion failed, a new one is ready to succeed, armed with Angland's weapons.

The Best Served Cold story arc (with characters Monza Murcatto, Nicomo Cosca, Castor Morveer, Friendly, Caul Shivers and Cas Shenkt): Carlot dan Eider, Magister of the Spicers aka "The Queen of Merchants", a beautiful, intelligent and skilled diplomat.

Shortly after they meet, in a conversation with Bayaz he describes himself as being over 30 years of age, [4] which would mean he was born sometime around 540-545 AU. So I heard. Mean bastard, that. Huge big lad. They call him Dogman ’cause he bit some woman’s teats off one time.’ Reunited, Bayaz leads them from Aulcus over the Broken Mountains to the Great Western Library. Inside Cawneil welcomes them, and invites them to dinner. However, the food is poor and the company rancid. Cawneil reminds Bayaz of his failings, of when he left her for Tolomei, and when his actions led to Tolomei’s death. Bayaz calls her a fool for hiding away at the edge of the world. There is a long and sordid history between these two. Bayaz asks about the boat that will take them to Shabulyan, a duty commanded by Juvens of Cawneil. The Dwegholm are familiar as dwarves – tough, elite and heavily armoured, though like much of Conquest ranged units are uncommon and there is no siege weaponry.

Khalul, a Magus who is the religious leader of Gurkhul, he has created an army of Eaters and is Bayaz's bitter enemy. Nostalgic theme of poems yearning for days gone by. From the line ubi sunt, qui ante nos fuerunt? ("Where are they, those who have gone before us?").The immediate draw of the W’adrhun is the dinosaurs – the glorious, feathered dinosaurs. Theirs is a beastmaster vibe, with a focus on exotic creatures to supplement the lightly armoured and highly dangerous infantry. They’re the Orc faction with a focus on their warcrys – they wind up powerful chants to deliver as linebreaker effects at decisive moments. Old Dominion
