The Scales of War
Balik is a Senior Sargent in the Brindol Watch. He is a human male of late-middle years with considerable experience as a soldier in his younger days and as a Watchman in latter years.
He is widely considered to be hard but fair by the citizens of Brindol although the Watchmen also know that he has a temper and can be a bit of a bastard if you get on the wrong side of him.
He also seems to not appreciate epic prose of the sort that Chenia favours.
