Alvar is one of the Scions of the First. He grew up as an orphan in the slums of Gol Zaram until Kaine discovered him and sent him to the Sept of Shadows to learn his deadly trade. Although not as tall as Banan or Kaine, Alvar casts an imposing figure on the battlefield. In his own way, he believes he is a man of honour. His weapon of choice is a double-headed axe, similar to the one his ancestor, Praetorian Rasmusson wielded.
