Tarnus Quin, sometimes regarded as Vaup's secretary, is a Captain of Marali. He is often seen shuffling a bunch of papers, walking busily back and forth the throne room and the office of the Commander.
Brave beyond his actual skills, Quin will not hesitate before joining the armies defending the town of an attack. He has more than once ended up seriously wounded, more famously in the Dancing Moon of 432, where two brigand mages attacked the fort, while the Alliance distracted the group led by Quin at the main gates. For a long time, people thought he would not recover, but he has been seen in full health some years later.
Quin seems to be in charge of the guards' discipline when the Majors are away, and sometimes he can be found instructing them on battle tactics.
