You're Never Going Home
This fortified building is the home of what is left of the Gryphon’s Battalion which was assigned garrison duty in New Caladain. The battalion was undermanned when they were deployed and suffered significant losses pacifying the ten miles around the city. Of the two hundred that deployed only seventy are left. They are commanded by Colonel Ushar Primos. Ushar is a conservative officer and while he is subservient to Izolia Iscaro he resists any assignments that puts his men outside the city. He recognizes title but does not respect her ability to govern. Colonel Ushar believes that help is on the way from the Nine Kingdoms and that the best thing is for his men to stay with the city and garrison the walls.
The Gryphon’s Battalion spends its time manning the cities three gates, patrolling the farmlands immediately outside the cities walls, and drilling. The Colonel drills his men constantly in hopes that training will make up for their lack of numbers. The soldiers of the Gryphon’s Battalion are loyal to the Colonel but that trust is slowly degrading as he shows signs of mental instability.
