Warning: The following text contains spoilers relating to the plot of Nightfall.
General Bayel rose through the ranks of Kourna’s army through dedication, hard work, and ruthless use of force. As an Ascalonian, he worked twice as hard to prove himself as many Kournan recruits, demonstrating his resolve and discipline again and again. If he knew the outcome of a battle comes down to his life or someone else’s, he saw nothing wrong with making sure it was the other soldier who loses. His zeal extended to battles against countless opponents. When the Centaurs became rebellious, he volunteered to lead the “pacification campaign” against them. When the corsairs showed a blatant disregard for Elonian law, he took pleasure in leading raids against them, taking revenge on behalf of his nation. Overwhelming force has solved many of his greatest problems.
As a result, Bayel was admired in the courts of Warmarshal Varesh, feared by those who serve him, and hated by those who oppose him. His enemies claimed that he cared little for “collateral damage,” that he considered the deaths of civilians a small price to pay for the security of the state. As a ruthlessly efficient war machine, General Bayel would stop at nothing to destroy his enemies once he set his sights on an objective. Victory demanded nothing less than complete dedication.
