Alaster from Megapion
As one of the Strategii of Alexos, he is responsible for providing Alexos with correct information and commanding a legion of soldiers from Eros’s Southern army.
Alaster is also an excellent swordsman, but he comes into his own better as a deviser of major strategies or devising complex supply lines.
Alaster was born in the year 182 in the city of Megapion, as son of Peletor “The Watchful”, the ruling magistrate of Megapion. Alaster also has an older brother: Panetor, who serves as a senator for the region of Ebisia, and an older sister: Euryba, who is the head of the guards of megapion – their father Peletor’s personal security.
Alaster was an inquisitive boy from birth who could be found dwelling through the books of the famous Library of Megapion. He was also known in the army as a quiet commander who could calm the more hot-headed officers from Eros. In addition, Alster is also one of the strategii of the Dictator Alexos “the Wolf” together with Graius “the Golden”, with whom he also maintains a good relationship.
Alaster came into the crosshairs of Alexos during the Nabians’ attack on Ebisia in AAC 215. Alexos immediately saw the value of Alaster as one who could mount great strategic campaigns, and more importantly, one who could serve as a pillar of support for the southern peoples of the Realm as the son of the magistrate of the biggest city in the south. Alexos asked him to become his right-hand man as one of his strategii and come with him to the mainland of the Realm of Eros. There, Alaster settled in camp Istyros, where he engaged in the logistical planning of Lysander II’s invasion of Tellaria.
Alaster decided not to go along with Emperor Lysander’s campaign to Tellaria in the year 218, instead he decided to stay in Eros with his immediate supervisor Alexos in order to supervise the annual feast of the Euphoria of Euanthia.
Alaster is a middle-aged man with a strong build. Because he was born across the Sea of Nera he has a blacker skin color.
Alaster is also a learned man and knows a lot about the entire realm and the continent of Aurea as a whole thanks to his good upbringing in Megapion as the son of the ruling magistrate of the city.
