Appearance & Personality
Toland was a tall and notably aged male Hermionne. He had ginger hair and a prominent beard streaked heavily with grey. He wore an ornate red crest and cloak.
Biography - Arc III
Toland first appeared during the siege of Machike. He led a column of heavy cavalry that successfully broke through the Sarghress lines along the main road. His contingent is scattered when the colonists emerge to counterattack, but he is quick to rally his troops to push back against encroaching colonists, who had destroyed the army's trebuchets and taken over their heavy cannon.
When he realizes that even the cannon is taken by the drow, Toland continues to order his men to charge. Unbeknownst to him, Ariel used a golem driven by Kau Val'Sharen to charge into enemy lines, resulting in Tolan taking a critical wound from Ariel's polearm and falling in battle. On Toland's death, the hermionne armies scatter to the hills, leaving the colony's devastation in their wake.
