"I am not wont to bare my steel needlessly. But if you are deaf to reason..."
Native to a remote territory systematically subjugated by the Empire, Rhitahtyn sas Arvina entered the army for a sole purpose—to earn his citizenship. Assigned to the XIVth Imperial Legion, the Roegadyn swiftly attained the rank of officer and was awarded the position of pilus prior by Gaius van Baelsar, who recognized his exceptional martial prowess. Rhitahtyn proved himself a brilliant field tactician through a series of victories, demonstrating his worth in the legatus's eyes. In time, he rose to the highest rank a non-Garlean can hold: praefectus castrorum, and during the invasion of Eorzea, was oft entrusted with missions of the greatest import.
Rhitahtyn remains a formidable fighter despite his forty-nine winters, and can move with surpassing speed under the considerable weight of Tartarus, his massive gunshield.
