Magister Stephen Gaines
A shroud man, he leads the bureaucracy of East Salamis. He is torn between the conflicting views of both chief constable Macimer and captian Egan. His main concern is to find the best way to get the citizens under his care to safety before they are overwhelmed by the Iasian forces.
Thin and regal, he has blonde hair and green eyes. Though his stature implies weakness, his voice commands a level of respect through hints of wisdom.
