Commander of the Baerlon Gate Forces
Tanith was the first of the Gate commanders to enter Baerlon. Though he was instructed to diplomatically deal with the Northlander clan in command of the city he was captured, tortured and crucified by Riker (former clan chief of Baerlon). Through the power of the prophet king Mardero he was raised from the dead to take part in the assault which brought the city under Gate control.
Tanith was set up as commander of the occupying forces in Baerlon.
