Pyre leads a warband of other Charr against the Shamans, attempting to spur a rebellion. There are at least five other members of his warband, with more implied. Though they share the same last name style, it is unlikely that they are related, as charr last names are shared by warband, not family.
From the manual:
- Pyre is an outcast, persecuted by the Charr Shamans for daring to speak out against their ways. After his warband killed a Shaman and destroyed a temple, Pyre and his companions fled the ruling Shaman caste. Pyre hates them with a fury that only one raised to worship false gods can understand; he has been betrayed, tricked, and deceived, and he has sworn never to fall under the spell of the Shamans again.
- Pyre celebrated the demise of the Titans, those whom the Shamans called gods, and now watches with rising anger as the priests continue to deceive his people. At every step, the Shamans seek to tighten their grasp, bringing the Charr once again under their false rule—enslaving them to powers who do not deserve respect, much less worship. The cycle of dominance and slavery must be broken—and the Charr must be free...
He can sometimes be seen spectating The Norn Fighting Tournament.
Complete the quest Warband of Brothers.
