Behind the Scenes
The Ta'Vaalor guardsmen were updated on 07/19/2008 to have names and different personalities. Prior to that they were nameless and identical.
Gaelthar is middle-aged, of average height, and has a very brawny build. His honey blonde hair is pulled back into a single ponytail. He has piercing blue-grey eyes and a fair complexion. While Gaelthar has a reserved and official demeanor, it's offset slightly by his unkempt and wrinkly appearance. Gaelthar is dressed in a dark red coat trimmed with bright gold piping, which also has four broad gold stripes across the left arm. His pants are a matching red with the cuffs tucked into knee-high dark leather boots.

As several officers stroll by, Gaelthar snaps to attention with a crisp salute. Arnlis immediately snaps to attention himself, unconsciously imitating even the expression on Gaelthar's weathered face.
Sighing dejectedly, Arnlis runs a finger over the length of the vicious scar across his face. Gaelthar glances at the younger man and says, "Buck up, soldier! Every scar is a sign to remind you that you survived a battle. That's a badge of honor you're wearing."
