The subaltern is a younger son of a petty noble sent off to make his way in the military because he isn’t suited for much else – certainly not the priesthood or scholarly life. Recognizing his modest talents, higher authorities sent him to this post to keep him out of the way. Because he is not particularly able and has no promising future, he yearns to do something important to make his name. He is just smart enough to be dangerous. He can be a lot of trouble or a big help to those who approach him correctly. Bas-f-py is a follower of Khnemu.
