Forest Marshal Weslen Gavirk is the recently elected leader of the forested nation of Nirmathas. Born in the capital of Tamran, he has seen his city sacked five times by the armies of Molthune. His face is easily recognizable in the region, as all recently-minted Nirmathan coins bear his likeness.
Elected for a four-year term, Gavirk is passionate about the defense of his country, and not without compassion. He is determined to launch a preemptive attack against the Molthuni keep of Fort Ramgate, having seen his land despoiled for too long by the marauding armies of his enemy. He may yet succeed in the task, although it is an uphill battle, as the people of Nirmathas are a stubborn and independent lot who find it difficult to take orders from others.
The position of Forest Marshall is a military one, filled by an individual possessing skill in battle and the ability to organise effective strategies. As a civil ruler Gavirk is strictly a figurehead only, with actual governance falling to local administrators. These include exiled nobility, village elders, the wealthiest, and many others. No unified system of governance exists in Nirmathas.
