Gilus, the current commander of the colony, doesn’t smile very often, and is even more rarely heard laughing. Among the colony authorities, he seems to have the least interest in idle chat and doesn’t care for any type of gossip, speculation, or boasting.
It is almost ironic then that Gilus is due to be awarded with a title and a larger plot of land the most of the other colonists, should he be successful.
Gilus was present for the first encounter with the Undead that patrol the shores, and was noticeably disturbed by the loss of two sailors during a partly-botched ambush. Despite the losses, the Captain was able to see the work of the adventurers first-hand(and the fact they didn’t pick fights while out scouting) and has come to trust them to follow his orders accurately.
