Caravan Guards: Two catagories of guards are part of Almah’s party—loyal personal guards assigned to protect her by the Pactmasters themselves, and mercenaries she hired at Solku to bolster her group’s strength. All of these guards are human warriors, but the two groups are quite different in personality.
The four personal guards are named Fixx, Keldon, Podarn, and Vodrave. Like Garavel, they serve the Pactmasters of Katapesh. It just so happens that they have been assigned to protect Almah, but she does not have direct control over them. The vigilant guards have little sense of humor, are not particularly communicative.
There are six mercenaries—three men (Trevvis [the nominal leader], Utarchus, and Dullen) and three women (Kallien, Brotis, and Yesper). They are a disreputable lot, thick with soiled armor and greasy hair, a distinct contrast to the well-mannered, meticulously attired soldiers who guard Almah at all times.
